Last few weeks in the land of GG..

I have been quite silent recently, so I thought I would come out of the wood works and share with you what I have been up to! Mostly partying with the girls oh and I did do the London Marathon (hardest thing I have done in my life, but an amazing experience)

There have been birthdays, celebrations, and just in general lots of nights out – which means lots of shopping, as you have to have a new dress for each occasion right?!

Here are a few photos to share..

This was for my best friends birthday.. Dress is from ASOS

Bad piccy!! But this was when all my friends from Birmingham went to Liverpool (amazing night out!) Dress is again from ASOS

Me and my gorgeous bessie Scarlet out for a few drinks wearing all of Topshop

This was my birthday night out.. I don’t remember much, but I do remember trying to DJ!!

This was a night out with my girl Tash at Whisky Mist wearing Topshop

Last one, so my friend at work called Laura bought me this amazing top from 5 Preview, which I am wearing here..

Cirque du soleil

A few weeks ago I went to see Cirque du soleil at the stunning Royal Albert Hall and I had to blog about it, as it was such an amazing evening.

I can’t actually explain in words how amazing it was, you basically have to check out this video to see what I am talking about..

I wasn’t aloud to take pics, but I sneaked a few cheeky ones in!

The dancers were just incredible, the tricks they did were so impressive, every minuet I was jumping off my seat with excitement and constantly ‘wooing’ and clapping. There were times I would hold my breathe as the tricks were so dangerous you would feel they were going to hurt themselves (obviously they didn’t) But it is definitely a MUST SEE!!

No other show with compare to this.. get your tickets now

Barrior Central Review

Thursday nights are the new Friday nights…so my bessie and I went for dinner and cocktails at Barrio Central! As soon as I walked in, the place was buzzing with quite a ‘party like’ atmosphere; it was 7.45 on a Thursday night and it felt like everyone was preparing for the weekend!
The waitress was very attentive; as soon as I walked in she asked us what we wanted to drink. We ordered a bottle of white wine off the discount menu, which meant we got £5 off (always a plus before pay day!!)

If you are feeling a few cocktails on a week night definitely head to Barrio Central, as they do a discount on them between 3pm – 8pm, Monday to Friday. The cocktail menu consisted of some pretty unusual cocktails… Ram Berry Jam (Fizzy citrus spritzer with Finlandia Grapefruit and raspberry Jam) and Gingerbread Colada (Appleton VX and Koko Kanu rums with pineapple and coconut) I was pretty impressed with the bartenders making the orders so fast – throwing bottles everywhere!!

After a few glasses or wine, it was time for some much needed food. We ordered vegetarian quesadillas – soft flour tortillas filled with roasted seasonal vegetables & cheese, plantain & halloumi – grilled with roasted red peppers and served with fiery habanera salsa and finally Barrios Central’s famous nachos loaded with homemade guacamole pico de gallo, salsa verde, chipotle salsa, sour cream and delicious Monterey Jack cheese. I have to say the food went down perfectly with the wine. The nachos were my favourite, as the cheese just melted off them and the guacamole was to die for. For big eaters there was Carne Asada – tender spiced beef steak with freshly made Pico de Gallo and tomatillo salsa and Barrio Chicken Wings – spicy & succulent (which looked amazing!)

Throughout the whole evening the waitress made sure we had everything we wanted. I had a fabulous evening and we even had a little dance…

Thanks to the team at Soho Barrio Central

Dubai in Pics!

Firstly I wanted to say a Happy New Year to you all.. I can’t believe it is 2013!!

I have to say I started the New year with quite a bang! I was taken to Dubai as a surprise Christmas present, and I had the most amazing time (as you can probably tell by the pics below)

We sunbathed, drank cocktails, ate and slept.. that was pretty much it, but it was just the best way to start 2013!

We stayed at the beautiful Le Royal Meridien Hotel, every day we were treated to just spectacular views. I am already planning my next trip there..

Here are a few pics:

Winter Wonderland Weekend

Last weekend my girlfriends from Birmingham came over.. it was the most amazing weekend!!

On Saturday we went to The Mayfair for cocktials before heading to Rose Club (my new favourite London club). We danced and drank the night away. As always before hand I had a nightmare as to what to wear.. I bought this absolute beauty from Topshop – Do you like?

Stroll through Notting Hill

At the weekend, I decided to go on a little walk through Notting Hill (I actually had a really bad hangover, so thought it would be a perfect opportunity to explore!). I live so close to Notting Hill and I have never really realised how beautiful it is.

I think it might be my new dream place to live, it is such a cute and homely area..

I also noted down some really cute restaurants which I walked past:

Babylon at the Roof Garden

Seventeen

Geales

Pescheria Mattiucci

Where is your dream place to live in London?

Chelsea Darling

I was kindly invited to one of Chelsea’s top Gastro Pubs, The Builders Arms last Wednesday for a gorgeous four course meal. Myself and Mel had previously been there before, but I couldn’t quite remember it as I had, had far too many cocktails! So this time I made sure I stayed sober, well kind of!!

Firstly, I want to say a huge thank you to Geronimo Inns for such a wonderful evening, I met some lovely bloggers, ate some delicious food and drank (maybe a little too much) beautiful wine.

So, I guess you all want to know what we ate..
