My City Guide to Belfast...


travel-guide-to-belfast  
St Georges Market
12-20 East Bridge Street
St Georges Market is one of my favourite spots in Belfast, worth a visit at any time of year but especially around Christmas & New Year. Its an eclectic food and craft market, named UK's best large indoor market in 2014. Its a great place to wander with a lemon sugar crepe in hand browsing antiques, tables of cupcakes, stands of paintings, fresh vegetables & fish and hand made jewellery.

The Merchant Hotel
16 Skipper Street 
By far the most luxurious hotel in Belfast. A renovated former bank the building is beautiful inside and out. Be sure to stop by for afternoon tea or evening cocktails.

Muriels bar
12-14 Church Lane
Themed on a 1920's hat shop, with washing lines hanging from the ceiling complete with  pegged lingerie, sheet music or sometimes santa hats. This bar is intimate, cosy and always popular so be sure to get there early & try their famous jam jar cocktails.

OX
1 Oxford Street
Simple, creative and modern. This bare brick stripped back contemporary restaurant has rasied the stakes in Belfast with amazing cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere.

The Grand Opera House
2-4 Great Victoria Street
A perfect place to spend New Years Eve, in this historic opera house eating ice cream, drinking sparkling wine and enjoying the shows currently available: Aladdin & Faulty Towers.

The Dirty Onion
3 Hill Street
A cool new bar in one of Belfast's oldest buildings hosting an array of music 7 nights a week, everything from blue grass to traditional Irish music. A great atmosphere, perfect place to relax with friends after Christmas.

Bittles 
70 Upper Church Lane
Situated at the side of Victoria Square Shopping centre Bittles is worth a visit even just for one drink in what is the narrowest bar in Belfast. It hosts Belfasts largest selection of draught, bottled beers & ciders.

The Titanic Building
1 Olympic Way
Last but by no means least is the Titanic building which needs little introduction. If you are visiting Belfast over New Year this is a must. The largest titanic attraction centre (and in my opinion one of the most amazing buildings in the city) in the world situated on the Harland & Wolff shipyard where the RMS Titanic was actually built.

Titanic-belfastI have wanted to do a little city guide on Belfast for the longest time, its a city that is continuing to grow, change and improve with new bars, restaurants and shops opening every month. It has a creative yet friendly vibe that tends to make tourists love it here and has always made me proud to tell people its where Im from. This is just a small selection of places worth a visit, if you guys like this type of post and would like to see more of this kinda thing please let me know below or on twitter. Maybe a focus on places to shop or cafes would be another avenue to explore?

The Popcorn Jumper...

lifestyle-uk-blogI couldn't think of anything to call this post, but saying Im wearing pretty much the most awesome jumper ever it seemed appropriate to just title it, after it. This months Take Ten challenge was brought to us by River Island with Asos Fashion Finder, each blogger was asked to pick one piece of knitwear and style it up. As soon as I received this jumper I could tell it would be a key piece in my wardrobe, Im such a sucker for novelty prints. I decided I wanted to style it with a shirt collar underneath and with my mint coat for a layered cosy winter look.

Meet me in Mexico...

mexico-honeymoon-tripMy blog posts have been kind of a muddle since I got back from my honeymoon a few weeks ago.. So apologies for the random veering between winter and summer outfits. These shots were taken on one of the last days we had in Mexico right as the sun was setting...

travel-blogger-in-mexico lifestyle-fashion-blog floral-jumpsuit-look-of-the
what-to-wear-on-honeymoonI just love the loose fit breathable shape of this jumpsuit that made it perfect for the heat and also for fitting in three courses at dinner ;) The watercolour palm leaves and flower print also seemed ideal for the setting of tropical beaches.
