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!!
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
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…
I was reading Jessiemapooh blog and come across this beautiful site called Little Moose (how have I not seen this little beauty before!!)
Little Moose is an online boutique that sell sell bags, gifts, jewellery and stationery – each are very individual and creative. You guys should seriously check it out, you can find some real one offs on here.
At the weekend I went for dinner at the beautiful Gilgamesh.. I have to say it is one of my favourite places to eat in London. I have been there a few times before and the food, service and atmosphere … Continue reading →
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?
A few pics from our VERY fun night out!!
On Sunday we were all pretty hungover so we went for some much needed lunch at Le Pain Quotidien which was beautiful. We then headed to Winter Wonderland (YOU HAVE TO GO THERE) It is huge and so festive, we walked around drinking hot chocolate all evening which was perfect!!
Samsung have just launched this ridiculous exciting campaign, Life’s a Photo, take it!
It is a unique competition to find the world’s most photogenic city. 4 influential Instagrammers from 8 different cities around the world use the Samsung camera to promote their cities. Each week they’re set a mission covering the camera modes, with two images submitted to the site. The city with most shares on their photos wins.
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:
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.
