Chester Zoo – Lanterns at Christmas

On Sunday 10th December we booked to go and see the lanterns at Chester Zoo.

The weather was snowy and I had to drive through the heavy snow for a good half hour. This was first time I’d driven in snow and I almost had a panic attack because I couldn’t see anything.

We eventually got there safely and wandered around the gift shop to keep warm as it snowed.

At 6pm we took our little lantern and walked around Chester zoo to look for all the lanterns.

It was a cute little date night that I’d recommend to anyone who’d be interested next year!

Here are some photos we took..

Date Night – Engagement Celebration

A month after our engagement, we decided to try somewhere new for date night. We chose somewhere slightly more special than our average curry date, even if curries are the best!

We chose to go Cheshire Grill, Lach Dennis.

I thought it was so lovely of the staff to write us an engagement card and put a balloon on our table.

We received two free glasses of champagne with our meal, Jay actually liked it! But it was gorgeous.

I found the decor stunning, done up as a woodland theme with stag heads and pale tartan wallpaper. LOVE.

We both chose burgers for our main, well done with chunky beef dripped chips and a side of onion rings.

Absolutely gorgeous food!

Skipped the dessert entirely, but had a lovely evening with my now fiancé.

Date Night Fate Night 

Most girls wait for February 14th, however every year I wait for April 14th. It’s one of the most exciting days every year! 

I booked for us to go and see Fast and Furious 8. I’m always checking the cinema website for when I can book them and I’m usually the first one to book the screening! 

I’m not your typical average girl at all and Fast and Furious is always the best cinema experience. I love cars! Fast cars. Especially a skyline. 

I’ve lost a stone in weight now so it was only right to buy a new dress. This is a shirt dress from the binky range on inthestyle.co.uk. I love it. 

My typical makeup is usually the same as day time wear. I just always use a matte lipstick to add a bit of colour and my highlighter. 

Yet again, the cinema was quiet which is always nice. I hate them people who talk through it and kick seats so we were lucky to get empty seats behind us. 

Overall, I think the film was great, the graphics were amazing. I just think compared to no.7, it couldn’t have been any better. The film was seriously missing Paul Walker but he would be proud of it all. 

If you haven’t already seen it, get yourselves a ticket now!

Date Night 

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve all had a good weekend! This miserable weather is making me want to be on a beach in a hot country so bad!! 

I have finally got round to having a date night with my man. It’s now 3 weeks into 2017 and we’ve finally had some time to ourselves. After all my busy weeks, baking and overtime I was glad to have some quality time with him. 

I dressed casual and slightly autumnal as per. I just always want to be comfy! And I’m totally in love with my scarf. How gorgeous is it?! My scarf is from M & S and is super comfy. I wore black leggings from New Look, Cream top from Primark and Ugg Australia boots. 

For my makeup I’m wearing;

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation SB07 – super light on the skin and great coverage. 

HD Eye & Brow Pallette in 003 Vamp 

MAC False Lashes Extreme Black in A86 

Illamasqua Powder Blusher in shade Lover 

Kylie Lip Kit in shade Maliboo – I adore nude shades 

We went to a local restaurant, Jays never been before and when we go out together it’s always for a curry. I LOVE curry! But I just fancied a change this time. I’ve been to this restaurant a few times before too and I’ve liked it so I thought I’d suggest it. 

 We both decided to have a starter to share which we don’t often do, which was nice. It was a garlic and mozzarella flatbread with a salad garnish. I have no idea what dressing they had on the salad but it was sweet and I like it! 

For the main course I had chosen something different than I usually pick, carbonara. When the bowl came out I was shocked at how big it was! I said to Jay straight away that there was way too much pasta for me! The chicken was nice but there was no flavour at all in the pasta which was a let down. Other than that I enjoyed it and it filled me up! 

Jay couldn’t decide what to have. He usually goes for a burger of we go to a pub but we were both adventurous and chose something different. He picked ribs in the end but was very disappointed as there was barely any meat! 

Unfortunately, there wasn’t much bottled beer on offer which Jay likes so he had a kopperberg. At least he had beers when he got home!! 

Me on the other hand, decided to have some cocktails! I had the Hollywood. I love them! And I also had double midori and lemonade, so refreshing!
