Mersey Paradise

This weekend was spent in one of my favourite places - Liverpool. It's where I went to Uni and will always hold a very special place in my heart. Here are some of the things that makes Liverpool so special to me... The People Scousers - friendly, hilarious and often found wearing pjs and rollers … Continue reading Mersey Paradise

IWD – volume 2

This post was supposed to be Volume 3 (coming up on Thursday)... but seeing as Lauren Laverne's focusing her Radio 6 show this week on women in music for International Women's Day (IWD), I thought I'd get in early before she steals my IWD Playlist thunder.
