Tea with a Friend 

Hey Everyone! 
Hope you’re having a lovely evening. 

On Thursday i went out for tea with a very old friend of mine. I have known her since we were 3/4 years old. 

We decided to have a major catch up as we haven’t seen each other for about 6 years now! Literally 6 years to date since we left school. Crazy! 

I met her at my new local restaurant Wildwood for some tea and cocktails. We had both never been to this restaurant before so I wanted to see what it was like, especially with 30% off! 

Of course the first thing I did was get a cocktail! Sex on the beach. 

We decided to share a starter as I was being a piggy! Mozzarella garlic bread with caramelised onions. Lovely! 

I was deciding what to eat ALL day! Literally. So I was adamant I was having Chicken with Gorgonzola Sauce and Gratinated potatoes. 

I chose that, but, no potatoes. I really wanted something different as I hate having chips, I’m not a chip lover. 

When it arrived I was disappointed. The Chicken was fried. I would never think anywhere would sell fried chicken in a restaurant unless specified, so I was totally gutted! 

The chicken was crisp and full of oil. The Gorgonzola sauce wasn’t very flavoured, nor much of it. Too much rocket leaves and a tiny pot of chips. 

I hate writing negative comments about food but this really was disappointing. I may go back and try something else sometime. 

Anyway, I had a great catch up! 

Thanks for reading guys! 

With Love, V x

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!
