Birthday Night Away

Uncategorized

Good evening everyone…

…and happy (day after) Valentine’s Day <3. This year was the first time I ever properly celebrated Valentine’s Day with my boo. The past two Valentine’s have been during COVID and it’s just been difficult to plan anything special. It’s also just after Christmas, New Year, both me and Harrison’s birthday’s (both January bebe’s), and our anniversary…so by the time it comes around we can never be bothered to do anything. BUT, this year we DID! H treated me a really nice dinner at a restaurant near to where we live where they have *insanely* good food. We ordered sooo much food and I even got some of my favourite chocolates :). Kinda makes me want to celebrate it every year now…haha.

I never took any photos last night but I completely forgot that I saved a draft blog post from my birthday a few weeks ago!

Did you really go to a spa if you didn’t wear a white robe?

H organised for us to go to a nice spa hotel not too far from my house for an evening with a nice meal, drinks, and a lovely room back in January. I’ve driven past the hotel so many times in my life yet it was the first time I had ever set foot in there!

Those pillows were as squishy and as soft as they look

The room was super nice with really high ceilings and a massive comfy bed <3.

We had dinner in the evening and a bottle of wine. The food was delicious and it was super fun to dress up a little bit nicer for a change. I actually have a lot of photo’s from dinner… but I look a bit tipsy in nearly every one so I think it’s best they remain off the internet haha!

I was so Hungary I forgot to take a snap of my main! oops. (How dreamy does that chocolate look?!)

We ended the night watching movies and YouTube in bed snuggled up in our awesome bed. In the morning we order breakfast to our room before heading back home.

I was sooo great getting to do something for my 25th birthday after missing my last birthday to COVID. I love celebrating birthday’s as it think it’s important to commemorate every year of life that’s given to you. I want to look back and remember all the fun things I did each year, with the people that I care about the most :).

All for now,

Dinner in a Dome

Uncategorized

Happy Christmas Eve Eve everyone – if you are someone who celebrates Christmas I hope you are excited for the upcoming festivities!

One of my favourite things about Christmas is actually the build up to Christmas. I love doing all the typical Christmas activities, seeing all the pretty decorations lighting up peoples houses, and getting excited for some time off ~

One of the Christmassy activities I did recently was to have Christmas lunch in little dome ~ with Covid cases rising with the new variant here in the UK, having dinner out in your own personal dome is perfect 🤍

How pretty is this coffee art?

We got all dressed up and ate some lovely food, and drank lots of Prosecco.

The dome was decorated with fairy lights and a little Christmas tree and even came with heating (it’s cold in England always) and waiter service!

I had a baked Camembert to start followed by a butternut squash tagliatelle (mega yum) ~

As we ate it started to get dark and the dome looked even prettier at night ❤️.

*This was at Weston Park in Staffordshire for anyone wondering*

The only downside to the night was that I broke one of my stilettos…a great shame but also an excellent excuse to buy new ones hehe…

I love how cute it is
The best I could do with minimal lighting …

This is a great example, I think, of doing something fun and festive in a safe way that even feels quite ‘normal’. I would for sure do it again and would recommend it to anyone who asked 🙂

I think with Covid here to stay for the foreseeable future, it’s good to start thinking of new ways of getting out and experiencing life. We don’t want to endanger ourselves or others, but we also can’t lock ourselves up forever.

All for now,
