Sometimes when you move to a different city, you get so swept up in getting to work, and going to the gym, and shopping, and coffee in your regular spot, that you forget to actually take some time to go and explore the place that is now your home.
I guess that's what's kinda happened with me. I love Liverpool, it's fast become my favourite city since moving here 2 years ago. I know the part of the city where I live really rather well, but I very rarely venture over to the other side of town.
Last Saturday, however, Rebecca came over for a day trip to Liverpool, and, well, you guessed it, we decided to go somewhere new. We started at this adorable little cafe called the The Cow & Co Cafe, tucked away in a little side street, and drank all of the coffee and chatted for an hour while eating bagels and cake. Perfect Saturday, yes?
Once we'd finished here, we ventured outside for a walk as the sun was shining and it was a pretty lovely day. As we were scouting for a pretty location for outfit photo's, we walked past Liverpool Cathedral. I can't even put into words how huge this place is. It's so incredibly grand, and amazing, and beautiful, and just incredible, and I can't believe I've never been here before!
By the time all three of us had then finished shooting outfit photo's, we said goodbye to Rebecca while Tash and I headed for, um, another coffee. This time at 92 degrees. We'd both heard that this place was really great, and we'd been meaning to try and find it for a while, so when we unintentionally walked past it on our way home, we couldn't help ourselves but pop in for another cup.
Look how cool this place is! It's pretty much the perfect place to sit at your laptop and write and edit all of your photo's. I can imagine it would be pretty easy to spend a few hours here. I loved everything about this little coffee shop and I think it's safe to say we'll both be heading back!
This post talks about my first visit to Sefton Park a few weeks back, and Saturday definitely made me realise that there's so much of Liverpool that I don't know yet. It also made me realise that independent businesses are most definitely the best!
Are there parts of your city you don't know yet?
