The Breakfast of Champions

Leave a Comment

Or those of us with a hangover.

So as you may know (or not if your not from the UK) it has recently been a bank holiday and I feel I made the most of it (for once) and so thought I would share it with you guys!

Well as both my friends work in retail (though both not for much longer, they grow up so fast don't they!) it is hard to sort out nights out as I work during the week and they work whenever they are assigned a shift, which sometimes means mainly weekends. Though luckily they were both free the Monday of bank holiday, which meant a well earned night out was on the cards for sunday!!

After a lot of dancing (like an idiot in my case), probably a few too many drinks and getting in as the sun was rising we awoke needing something tasty/carby to hopefully mend the ailments of the night before.

Enter Moose Coffee.

I discovered this place from an Instagram post by Victoria, knowing that shes a Manchester based blogger I hoped that it wasn't a picture taken whilst she was in London and with a bit of research I found it was taken at Moose Coffee.
This place really is great, though if your not keen on breakfast foods your probably not going to enjoy it that much. Its like an American/ Canadian Dinner that does every breakfast food under the sun from eggs to porridge, pancakes to shakes this place does it all.

If you don't live near one of their Coffee shops I would not recommend looking at the menu because dear god it will make you want it all. I am usually sad enough that the times that I have gone I have had to look at the menu before hand as it is soo hard to choose and knowing how hungry I will be when I get there its best for everyone that I do this!!

This time I went for a Smoked Moose, glass of tap water and a pot of tea, a very civilized meal I feel in comparison to the night that was had before.

Two slices of thick brown bread, pretty sure they were thick enough to wedge a door open but tasted soo good, The butteryist scrambled eggs I have had, they were really light and tasty I could have eaten more, topped with a couple slices of smoked salmon. Just writing this is making me want it all over again and how cute is that milk jug!!

My friend went for bagels topped with spinach, poached eggs, hollandaise sauce and a side of smoked salmon, I had some food envy there that's for sure.

I would definitely recommend going if your in the Liverpool or Manchester area. The staff are really friendly and the service is really quick for how busy the place gets (especially on the bank holidays and weekends).

After the life saving food we went for a bit of a wander around Manchester and I may have made a few cheeky purchases from Zara, H&M and Space NK so there will be a haul/review post up soon I promise!

Have you ever been to moose coffee?

How did you spend your weekend?


Hair Serums and Everything Inbetween


Hair Serums and Everything Inbetween

These are the serums and hair products that I use after every time that I wash my hair. I try to avoid washing my hair that frequently, as disgusting as that sounds its due to the fact that 1. Its not good for your hair to be washed again and again as your removing the natural oils in your hair every time you wash it and 2. My hair is already mega damaged from the amount of dying that i have put it through over the past years. That is why I use this products on my hair after washing as they prevent my hair returning to its previous straw like state.

1. I begin normally by running either Lee Stafford Argan Oil or John Freida Full Repair through the ends of my hair. I avoid putting this at the roots as it would add to the oil that is already there and it is the ends where my hair is the driest.

2. I would then either follow up with VO5 Smoothly does it or tony & guy depending on what style it is that I am going for. The smoothly does it is more for everyday hair, where as if i want to do a bigger style with more hold and a bit more volume then I will use the Tony & guy, as it adds a bit of grit to the hair to make use that it holds the volume that drying the hair creates.

3. Next is another oil, the VO5 Miracle Concentrate this is another one that I only use on the ends of my hair, it adds to leaving my hair extra silky smooth without making it greasy and needing to be washed sooner than needed.

4. Now this is an odd one, Lee Stafford my Big Fat Texturised Hair Super Spray this is a salt spray, hair spray and wax spray in one. Its great for using on wet hair to give it a bit of grit to your hair when your drying and styling it. But then if your wanting a beachy wave type of look, then this is also great just a small squirt in your hand and then scrunch through your hair and away you go.

5. Finally I always finish with Lee Stafford Poker Straight Flat Iron Heat spray, I use this before drying, straightening or curling as my hair is damaged enough so avoiding further damage from heat is always a plus.

Obviously when I can, I will allow my hair to air dry as my hair needs all the moisture that it can get. Though these products do help protect and repair my hair , if you can I would recommend avoiding any heat as it will slowly damage your hair.

Are there any products that your swear by?
