Oh hey there!

Welcome to Female Original (F O). I’m Faye, a 20-something drinks, music and lifestyle blogger. If you’ve managed to find yourself here for the first time then hello and thanks for stopping by. Maybe you’ve come across my blog by searching for some spots to visit on your trip to Liverpool. Possibly you’ve found me whilst on the lookout for a banging new playlist to get you through your daily commute. Or you could’ve even fallen upon here in the middle of searching for some cocktail inspiration. Whatever reason it is, it’s great to have you here.

So…here’s a bit about me. In a sentence, I’m a vintage coat-wearing, groove-loving foodie with a love of Spanish travel. You’ll often find me sipping on an aperol spritz, listening to a bit of funk or rewatching How I Met Your Mother. That’s pretty much all you need to know for now. If I’ve managed to intrigue you at all then feel free to have a read of what I’ve been getting up to lately. To find out a little bit more about what I do here at Female Original (F O), head over to my full about page.
