February Highlights.


Some bloggers frequently write monthly favourites, which are posts I'm obsessed with reading. But me being me, I thought I might like to take a different spin on this and post monthly highlights, including days out and events that have given me something to smile about in the past 4 weeks. Sooo what exactly have I been up to in February?

1. An incredible weekend in Buxton.

My gorgeous sister turned 30 (!) at the beginning of February and, because her birthday is so close to another 2 of her friends, 25 of us ventured to the Peak District to have a jolly old time in a gorgeous manor house for the weekend. Quarnford Lodge is just outside Buxton and overlooks some stunning scenery. It sleeps 28 and is the most beautiful lodge I've ever seen. The rustic decor and word burning stove made me feel like I had travelled back in time, and the snow covered hills were a treat to wake up to. We couldn't have had a better time and I still get sad thinking about how good it was! Equipped with massive sofas, a snooker and ping-pong table and a gorgeous courtyard - I hope it's not too long before I'm back!

2. A day on the bikes.

I know I already did a full post on this so I'll keep this one quick. My flat mate Lorna and I rented out the Liverpool citybikes for a day and took a little jaunt in the direction of Otterspool and in particular Festival Gardens. We had the funnest day ever including a picnic and a tumble on my part, and you can check it out in more detail here

3. The Roscoes single launch.

Live music is one of my most favourite things to enjoy and it's something I just haven't done enough since I moved back to Liverpool. But, last Sunday I took to the Magnet in the city centre to attend The Roscoes' single launch. The Magnet is a lush venue and the band put on such a show. I was incredibly impressed with the talent, in particular the vocals. It reminds me of The Black Keys so much, and the songs were so catchy you felt like you knew them after just one chorus. It was lovely to see a real passion for the music live on stage and I will definitely be checking them out again! If you like your soulful rock and catchy tunes check them out on Sound Cloud here. You won't regret it.

4. Nights with Friends.

When you graduate university it becomes increasingly harder to see the people you used to spend 24/7 with. Either everyone moves back home or you all stay in the same city, working jobs with different shifts and barely catching a minute together. Both of these scenarios are the case for me but luckily this month I got two nights out with some of my best chummies! One of my best gal pals has gone off travelling to South America so we just had to have a bit of a knees up to say goodbye. And another of my friends works in an incredibly busy restaurant and never gets a Saturday off. But this month he did! So we well and truly made the most of it and painted the town red.. with a bit of a sore head the next day.

I have had such a good February - and writing this has really made me see that! Here's hoping March's Highlights are as good eh! Aisling. xo
