Today me and Emma went on a fleeting visit up to Liverpool to explore the city and visit Nu Cosmetic. They are a clinic up in Liverpool and we were there to find out more about their attitudes towards cosmetic enhancements. It actually shocked me how honest and tactful the place was. I feel some places come across as really pushy, forward and you're more likely to leave thinking "I need full body lipo and a facelift asap". It wasn't just promoting nipping, tucking and poking bits in places but talking about lifestyle changes, self esteem issues and confidence.

I promise I'll do a post on my feelings and thoughts in the next few weeks on this incredibly touchy and sensitive subject - but it's something I feel really should be talked about. While I've never had anything done but Emma has had a few things done so it really interesting to hear about it from so many different perspectives. We discussed it in length today which was refreshing, realistic and eye opening - It's nice to hear things from different sides. I'll admit that I'm personally not against cosmetic enhancement - I am pro making your own decisions about your body that only effect you. I think we live in an age where "plastic" surgery is over enhanced and blow out of proportion in the media, when in reality the majority of "work" "real" people get done is for self esteem or medical reasons. I do think people can abuse it but... I dunno. It's hard to find the line. Like I said I'll talk more about this later in the month!

Today I wore jeans, comfy pointed shoes and a oversized jumper today as I was in a rush to get ready. I wasnt even intending on blogging about what we got up to so I forgot about my camera for most of the day. Liverpool is a lovely city and I hope to go back next time I have a free weekend. I loved the atmosphere and the whole vibe. Totally different to London in the most relaxing way.

  10. Completely with you on your view on cosmetic surgery. I've toyed with the idea of a boob job and still do every so often but, as I'm not totally committed to the idea, I probably would never go through with it.
    Your coat looks so cosy and comfortable!

  11. Great shoes! Similarly I have mixed views on plastic surgery. Some people have plastic surgery and end up feeling the best they have ever felt.. I would just be scared something could go wrong. xx

  18. Really lovely outfit, I want that coat!
    I agree plastic surgery is definitely okay if done for you and hasn't gone crazy too far!
    I'm sure if I had the money I would get a little something done :)

  19. Gorgeous outfit, I love the jacket and top! I don't know why people have such strong opinions on cosmetic surgery, if someone wants something done then let them! Although I'd personally be way too chicken to go through it myself haha x

  31. I think some people don't realise how much others can be affected by their flaws. My friend had (in my opinion) nothing wrong with her nose, but she was absolutely crippled with anxiety about it. She wouldn't go out with us, she'd talk to guys with her hair or hand half over her face to cover it up... Once she'd had a nose job she blossomed into a completely different person and now has so much more confidence in herself.

    It's something really personal, that some might consider trivial. But to others it can really make a big difference in their life.

    I can't wait to read your post on the subject :) xx

  34. Love the jumper! I've never been to Liverpool before but I've always wanted to visit. I'm very much in agreement with you re: cosmetic surgery, I'm very much 'live and let live'. If it only affects their body I don't understand why people should feel entitled to cast judgement.
