[027] Virgin Value Challenge - Lead me to Liverpool!


Hey lovelys.. I have some really exciting news to share. I have been contacted by Virgin Trains to get involved in their 'Virgin Value Challenge' it's a really exciting project they have going on and I am one of the lucky bloggers that has been chosen. The concept of the challenge is to be as creative and cost effective as you can. I have been given £250 to spend on a day out to one of the destinations that is along the Virgin trains route. The money can be spent however I like (obviously not on a new on wardrobe) but on activities that keep me occupied for my time away. I need to spend the whole amount not a penny more or a penny less!


I have after much research decided on my destination, which if you couldn't tell from my title is Liverpool. I have decided to head down at the end of the month for two days with a friend of mine. The money provided will cover our travel, overnight stay and much more! I wanted to write this post to give you all a heads up and see if you have any suggestions on things to do in Liverpool, or even any money saving tips. I have already managed to grab myself a great deal on Groupon for a fish pedicure in a spa in Liverpool for an amazing £8 instead of £20. I've been wanting to have this done for ages, I'm a little nervous because I am super ticklish, anyone had it done before?


I am really looking forward to finding fun things to do in Liverpool on a budget. It will be my first time visiting so I am really looking forward to it.



I want to make this a really cool, creative two days away so that I can be in with a chance of winning this challenge! I will keep you posted on my findings and obviously my adventure.


Lots of Love

  6. oooh Liverpool is a fantastic city to visit! I'm hoping to go again in April. Basically, its got everything!
    The modernisation of the Albert Docks was impressive, and there's plenty of places to have cocktails there!
    I'd defo recommend the restaurant Alma De Cuba, its in a converted cathederal and when we went on a Saturday night there was Brazilian dancers, and a rose petal drop. But on Sundays a gospel choir play- and I'd love to see that!
    I'm sure you'll do great in the comp.

  9. I had a fish pedi done & I barely kept my feet in the water because I was too ticklish. I couldnt even put my feet all the way in, I dipped them in for a few seconds at a time lol. Good luck with the pedi especially considering your ticklish too lol x
