For my third and final Hen Party I headed over to Liverpool to meet up with some of my fabulous friends! From day dot, even before I was engaged or had a boyfriend even, I knew I would always have my hen in Liverpool. I love the city and I have THE most amazing friends there!

Sarah and I flew over first thing with Easyjet from Belfast International Airport to Liverpool John Lennon, Easyjet is one of my favourite airlines. We flew over the first May day weekend, so prices were a little more expensive, but we got a return flight Saturday to Monday for £53.50 per person.

We stayed in the most amazing apartment in Liverpool; Atlantic Apartments, it was really central, clean, safe, it was a fantastic size and absolutely beautiful, much better than a hotel! We paid £308.70 for the two night stay for the 4 of us, so it was a bargain at around £78 each. I would definitely recommend it and stay again!

The first thing we just had to do after the early start was dump our stuff, meet up with friends and go for brunch. Of course the girls had some accessories for me to wear too:
We headed for brunch at The Tavern Co, it was delicious and so quirky, definitely my kinda place, my girlies know me so well! What a feed a got to line my stomach, and well I just had to have a cheeky little strawberry bellini.
In between brunching and getting ready to head out for night one we did a little bit of shopping, we only had hand luggage, so unfortunately we couldn’t shop till we dropped.
Alongside stocking up on the essentials for a night out, like gin, wine, mixers, nibbles etc we of course had to get a MASSIVE personalised cookie from Millie’s Cookies.

On our first night of my Hen we had such a laugh, I was dressed like a unicorn had literally boked on me, the tackier the better!
Dressed to the nines we headed first to Karaoke, awh it was such a laugh, we went to MBox just down the road from our apartment, we booked a room and paid £10 each for an hour and 2 drinks of our choice. Awh we sung our hearts out! I haven’t any photos, just videos (don’t worry I’ll save you from that one), but I did manage to screenshot this one.
The rest of the night was spent going around a load of different clubs, the nightlife in Liverpool is so different to that at home in Northern Ireland! The only thing that did kill Sarah and I were our feet, we totally wore the wrong shoes for nightclubs and the streets of Liverpool, never mind still being out at 3.30 am, it was definitely a VERY long day.

The day after the night before and we had to feed our hangovers! We were on the hunt for a big greasy fry, but for some reason being Sunday and after 12 by the time we actually made it out, we couldn’t get one. However this Eggs Benedict totally hit the spot!

After we had been fed and watered we headed to do a bit of sight seeing and being tourists. We did want to do the ferry across the Mersey, but we missed the sailing by 10 mins, plus it was absolutely freezing!
We also added our own little padlock to the area down at the docks, the names of all the girlies on the hen, there forever, or well until they get cut off.

Before heading out again on the Sunday night for the ‘surprise’ my bestie Vicki had planned we headed to the Baltic Market to line our stomachs once again. I was so excited to try here, my brother lives in Liverpool and I’ve seen him eating here and had total envy! The food was absolutely to die for; Halloumi fries omw talk about a foodgasm! We decided to divide and conquer, picking a couple of things from the different food stalls and then sharing them all at the end.

My outfit for Sunday night was all from Primark, I learnt my lesson after the Saturday night and went and bought myself a pair of block heel sandals and then I picked up this gorgeous little dress for under £20!

We then headed up the road before my ‘surprise’ to The Florist, again the girls know me so well and just knew it would be my kind of place, so pretty and instagrammable! The place was stunning, the bar tender was beautiful (well a bit of eye candy always helps!) and the cocktails were delicious and so well priced.

It was both horrific and hilarious all at the same time, us girlies had such a laugh but on my word I was traumatised getting a ‘dance’ (I use that word lightly) from one of the strippers.
I had such a laugh though with my girlies and our glow in the dark penis necklaces, our penis straws and my penis whistle lol pure tack!
C O N F E S S I O N
My name is Zane and I LOVE hash browns, yup they are the best, but no where does them like they do in England. So my night was made when the local chicken shop next to our apartment sold them and little tipsy me was very happy!

These girls gave me THE BEST Hen Party, I had an absolute ball and a weekend I will never forget for some of my best friends!
