209 Women. Theresa May, MP for Maidenhead, British Conservative Party, Prime Minister

209 Women

I’ve seen on twitter that a new exhibition opened at Open Eye Gallery on the docks in Liverpool. It is entitled 209 Women and it marks 100 years of women suffrage. The exhibition features 209 portraits of the UK’s women MPs, shot entirely by photographers that identify as women. I think the whole idea of […]

Liverpool International Horse Show. Horse Jumping

Liverpool International Horse Show

I was considering going to the Liverpool International Horse Show, and when I saw tickets on offer on groupon, I knew I had to buy them. I got bronze tickets for me and my husband, not the cheapest, but not expensive either. Each show lasts for about 4 hours and I was very keen to […]

Journey Through Waste

Journey Through Waste

The Journey Through Waste, is the last post I’m making from Heritage Open Days. I’m very interested in recycling and to learn how recycling works. Luckily I was able to get the last ticket at the tours that were available this year. It was free and it lasted for around one hour and a half. […]

St Anthony’s Church. Inside the church

St Anthony’s Church

This week Heritage Open Days starts, an annual event. From July I start looking at their website to see what new places I can visit, especially as I follow them on Facebook and I see there many updates. The first thing I’ve visited this year was St Anthony’s Church in Liverpool. That’s the best part […]

International Slavery Museum Wall

International Slavery Museum

I’ve been to the International Slavery Museum on Albert Dock, when I moved to Liverpool. I wasn’t impressed, as I mentioned it in my post Museums. It was interesting to my thoughts from back then, when I said that “I think slavery deserves a better way to be presented, stronger and with more impact on […]

Lydiate Hall Farm Shop - Tea rooms

Lydiate Hall Farm Shop

Lydiate Hall Farm Shop is in the same location with The Hayloft tea shop. It’s about 25 minutes from Liverpool city centre, but it’s worth the trip. There is a lovely place to stroll, seeing the ruins of the Hall, two churches are nearby and they look lovely. I also noticed signs to public footpaths. […]

Model Image. Fashion and photos from the 1950s - Dresses

Model Image Fashion and photos from the 1950s

The new special exhibition at Sudley House is Model Image Fashion and photos from the 1950s. Last year I’ve been to another exhibition at Sudley, on the 1930s fashion. In London I saw the 1920s exhibition at Fashion Museum. I find it fascinating to see how much fashion has changed in such a short period. […]

Old Docks Experience - Albert Docks

Old Docks Experience

I’ve been to the Old Docks Experience a few years ago, in 2013. I shared a few pictures, but not a lot of details. After 5 years, and a lot of history related TV shows and books, I was ready to go on the Old Docks Experience tour again. I took advantage of the last […]

Slaves of Fashion Exhibition - Indigo

Slaves of Fashion Exhibition

I’ve been to the Slaves of Fashion Exhibition at Walker Art Gallery last month. It was very interesting and it did made me consider my buying choices. The exhibition is still on display until the second part of May, details on Walker’s gallery website. If you’ve followed my blog, you might have seen the post […]

Liverpool Central Library

Liverpool Central Library

I love reading books, in fact I have a whole new blog to talk about them: Coffee & Books. As I’m reading a lot of books, most of them are borrowed from the library, not only is much cheaper, but I don’t have to think where to store all the books. The bookshelves are not […]
