Girls night πŸΉπŸΈπŸ’ƒπŸ΄

On Saturday me and the girls decided to go out for dinner & drinks! We haven’t done this in ages.

We chose the new resturant ‘Cosy Club’ in the newly refurbished Buttermarket shopping centre and it didn’t disappoint. 

Now first things first, cocktails! 🍹🍸 They had some really yummy ones to choose from, I had 2 different ones..

1. Solero  

Inspired by ice cream and the Spanish sun. Smirnogf vanilla vodka and passover over crushed ice with orange, fresh passionfruit  and lime juice then finished with cream. Zesty & refreshing. Β£7.50

2. Cosy Swizzle

Whisking you away to the carribbean with a blend of aged Bermudan and Dominican rums, pineapple juice, fresh passionfruit and a dash of pomegranate liqueur. Grass skirt optional. Β£7.50
These were so yummy, especially the Cosy Swizzle πŸ˜‹

The food was also AMAZING.

I went for the Mac N Cheese and it was hands down the best I have ever had πŸ‘ I added chorizo into mine for a little extra and that was so good too, I would defiantly recommend adding the chorizo unless of course your veggie.

I also got a side of beer battered onion rings, I can never resist them! These were yummy too although I had to share them as I was so full!! 

For dessert I had the chocolate pot. It has raspberry coulis on top then underneath is a mix between a chocolate mousse and a ganache. It was really rich but very nice and on the side you got a melt in the mouth shortbread biscuit! Always a winner.

The decor in the resturant was really cool, lots to look at and it worked so well altogether. 

I loved the carved wood panelling on the walls behind our table & the cute vintage China plates that the candles sat on.
Even the napkins were pretty ⚘

Here are some pics of us πŸ™†

We had a lovely time, we all loved our food and came out stuffed. 

Next stop, more drinks. We went on to Vodka Revolution as it was still quite early so it’s a bit nicer in there to have some chilled out cocktails.

This is the cocktail that I had in Revs, ‘Fizzy Fruit Salad’. It came in this cute metal milk bottle πŸ‘Œ

After the first round of cocktails we went onto our usual drinks to get the night going, and that meant only one thing… SHOTS!

Once we had all had a little more to drink and the atmosphere (& dance floor) had picked up a bit, we had a dance πŸ’ƒ 
& my lovely hubby kindly picked us up from town and drove us home 😁

It was such a fun night πŸ™„ We definatly need to do it more often. 

Until next time,

    What’s in my bag? πŸŽ’

    I love watching ‘whats in my bag?’ videos on yotube so I thought I would do one for my blog. 

    So, what’s in my bag? 

    Let’s start with the all important bag! This little black bag is from Primark and was only  Β£9. I love the faux leather material & suede material on the front. The gold detailing & clasp are really cute too.

    I love that it has both long & short straps too and although it looks small it fits a lot in it.

    Let’s take a look inside…

    I always carry my purse & a hairbrush where ever I go. I love this purse, sage green is one of my favourite colours  (one of our wedding colours too, ahhh β™‘) & the patterned birds are really cute. It’s nice and big so fits lots in it too! 

    I got this lovely big Brush from Primark for Β£1.50, bargin!

    I also always have a book with me & if you’ve seen my August favourites you’ll know I’m currently reading this Nicholas Sparks book πŸ‘ 

    I love this body mist from Zoella original beauty range. Blissful Mistful β˜† it smells gorgeous.

    Sunglasses 😎 The weather hasn’t been too bad this summer so I’ve carried these in my bag ready. I love having decent prescription sunglasses, I always hated not being able to have nice ones or just not being able to see!

    I would defiantly recommend this Revolution Lip amplification lip gloss as it has such good staying power. I’ve eaten and drank and it’s still in place with a good colour. 

    I love this shade ‘Joy’ it’s a lovely plum autumnal colour. πŸ‚πŸ

    And finally…

    I popped one of these fruity bars, from Aldi in my bag incase I got peckish around town. This is blueberry and seeds flavour. It comes from their ‘Foodie market’ range and they do lots of other yummy fruit flavours to satisfy your sweet tooth. 

    I hope you enjoyed this blog post, let me know if you did! What do you always carry in your bag? 

    Until next time,

        August favourites πŸ€—

        I’ve wanted to do a favourites post for ages but I’ve never got round to it. I might have mentioned some of these things in other posts but these are a few things that I have been loving this month.

        First up, beauty & skincare…

        I have definatly mentioned these first two before and I am still loving these so much! 

        Maybelline brow satin in the shade ‘Medium Brown’. This is a make up staple for me now, it’s so easy to apply.

        Bourjois Rough velvet edition in the shade 07 ‘Nude-ist’. This glides on really nicely and dries matte. I πŸ’Ÿ this liquid lipstick, it’s my favourite out of all of my lipsticks. πŸ’„

        Revolutions New Pro Glow highlighter palette. These colours are so beautiful and shimmery. I particularly like the gold shades as I haven’t tried these in a highlighter before.

        And finally…

        Niveas intensive hydration after sun moisturiser. We discovered this on our honeymoon and it was perfect to apply after being in the sun all day and for making your skin feel really fresh and rich in moisture.

        I love the smell of this too as it takes me right back to our honeymoon…ahhh β›±

        Next up, fashion.

        I love this t-shirt from Primark. I love the stripes and the heart patch is super cute. This was only Β£5.

        I’ve been wearing my new Havaianas a lot this month! We’ve had some pretty nice weather so these have been perfect and they are super comfy.

        These were only Β£21 after my 10% discount, I got them in Office.

        Let’s talk books…

        I love reading and it’s one of my favourite hobbies. These two I have particularly enjoyed and they are by two of my favourite authors. 

        The first one I’ll talk about is ‘That girl from nowhere’ by Dorothy Koomson. 

        ‘Clemency Smittson was adopted as a baby and the only connection she has to her birth mother is a cardboard box hand-decorated with butterflies. Now an adult, Clem moves to Brighton, where she was born, and meets someone who knows all about the butterfly box and what happened to her birth parents.’

        This was one of the books I read on our honeymoon and I couldn’t put it down!

        I’d also recommend her novel ‘Goodnight, beautiful’ that I read this month too.

        I am currently reading ‘See me’ by Nicholas Sparks. I’m up to chapter 8 and I’m loving it already, his novels are just so easy to read.

        ‘Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. At 28, he’s focused on getting his teaching degree and avoiding all the places and people that proved so destructive in his past. The last thing he’s looking for is a serious relationship. But when he crosses paths with Maria Sanchez one rainswept night, his carefully structures life is turned upside down.’

        And finally, food!

        A couple of food items that I’ve really been enjoying this month both come from Aldi. This is where we do our weekly shop so I just picked these up to give them a try and ended up loving them. 

        This fizzy drink is Raspberry and Mint flavour, it is so refreshing and tastes so fresh and yummy.

        The Granola squares in the picture above ☝ are super tasty! They are ‘Crispy oats & Honey Granola bites’ little squares of oaty goodness, be careful though, they are super moreish πŸ™Š

        What have you been enjoying the month? Let me know 😎

        Until next time,
