Alex's 20th at the Slug and Lettuce


During the last weekend of August, we all went to the Slug and Lettuce in Richmond for Alex's birthday, following on from the joint birthday celebrations at Hippodrome the weekend before. It was nice that it was in Richmond, on the river, but it was less busy than Staines, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not but it was really nice either way. It meant we didn't have to shout to be heard. :)


The girls opted for cocktails, whilst the boys were boring and went for beer. I chose 'Dune Bug' which is maybe one of my favourites at the slug, annoyingly it wasn't 2 for 1 on cocktails but we can't be too fussy! :) I had a nice catch up with everyone and we've all gone back to Uni so we won't be seeing each other for a while, so it was really good to see them before we all went!


I wore plain leggings and little booties from Deichmann. They're the only shop so far that I've found in England that sells size 2.5 heels! Darn you small feet! haha :) I also wore it with a turquoise satin top that my cousin gave me. I really like the colour although I was so careful all night not to catch it or spill anything on it, it's a bit too delicate for my liking! But it's pretty nonetheless :)

Happy 20th Alex! :)

Chocolate cake for Freddie's 20th

Smarties cake with chocolate fingers
The amazing birthday cake!
Black and white Check leggings
Black and white Check leggings
Top and necklace- H&M, Leggings- Primark, Converse- Cloggs
August meant that the last of the guys were turning 20. It's so weird that they only just turned 20 and a little more than a month later I'm going to be turning 21. 21. what the hell. Haha I am no were near old enough :') I still look like a 15 year old! Never mind :)

Black and white Check leggings
Such sarcastic posers XD
All the guys had a joint night out at Hippodrome for their birthday and then on Sunday, for Freddie's actual birthday he threw a party round his house, it was a nice chilled evening with a few drinks and Lucy and I even had a shot at Fifa. I suck so bad! It was close but she beat me during penalties XD The highlight was the cake which Lucy made and the decoration turned out really well! :) Sadly we didn't take many photos during the night and not everyone got in the photos :)


Seeing as it was a chilled night round Freddies I decided to keep my outfit casual so I wore my checkered leggings from Primark. These are probably some of my favourite bottoms at the moment, I also have them in blue I couldn't resist! Haha, and then I teamed it with a black top from H&M, I was thinking about wearing a crop top but went for something a bit more baggy and slouchy and teamed it with my gold necklace also from H&M. Then keeping with the casual theme I wore my Converse from Cloggs :)

Happy Birthday Freddie! :)

Piccadilly Institute


Following on from my busy weekend three weeks ago when I went to Hippodrome, Megan turned 18, so the next day we all went up to London to celebrate. We went to Picadilly Institute and we had a great night actually! The girls looked super pretty and we went for some casual drinks. Due to us living in awkward towns where public transport stops at 12:30 we decided to get the tube there and back :) Even though we were there for a few hours we managed to have a few drinks and dance and have a great night! I guess we made the most of what time we had :)

Coctails!
It was so weird arriving at Picadilly Circus and it being so busy! Everything was lit up and it was so so busy everywhere! It makes where we live seem like the countryside haha! It does make it more exciting and it was nice to do something different compared to going to the clubs in Kingston that we always go to. :) The club was quite nice, each of the rooms were differently themed, even the drinks which was a nice twist :)


The following Monday my brother turn 18, he was meant to be back before his birthday but he decided to prolong his holiday, so we will celebrate when he gets back, and the Sunday after Lucy turned 18! It's so weird I still think of them as really young, ahh I sound like an old person! Haha! I hardly feel much older than 18 and now for two of my best friends and I, our brothers and sisters have turned 18. I can't believe the years are going so quickly, we're getting ready to finish Uni and they're about to start, it all feels so surreal XD

Happy Birthday Megan, Petar and Lucy! :)

Date nights

Date night! Maybe one of my favourite nights as you get to pig out and treat yourselves haha! We've been on quite a few over the summer. We used to always eat at Nandos, as it was yummy and cheap but I think I've had enough for a while, gasp! Never thought I'd ever say that! So we've been trying some different places instead. A few weeks ago we went to the Punchbowl in Colnbrook. That's probably my favourite place for Thai food and it's usually our favourite restaurant for birthdays, the food is really good, well priced and the staff are lovely :)

slightly chargrilled XD
Two weeks ago we made use of Orange Wednesdays and went to the cinema to watch How To Train Your Dragon 2. Okay so the rest of the audience were predominantly children but that's besides the point XD Obviously we had sweet popcorn, as it's always good to eat and watch a movie. Afterwards we went to Pizza Express, I ordered a Pizza, and Pardis ordered a Calzone, when the food came his was burnt and rock hard! I told him to turn it over and the bottom was black. I'm not one to complain in a restaurant but it was ridiculous, so I called the waitress over and told her, she handled it really well and was very polite, she apologised and said a new one would be here in 5 minutes and offered some complimentary olives. I think that was the first time I'd complained in a restaurant but I was really pleased with how it was handled and his new Calzone was fine :)


I wore my new favourite dungarees from Primark. They remind me of a pair my mum used to have when we were little so I grabbed them up straightaway, and not to mention they are so so comfy! Plus they're good at hiding food babies haha!


Last week it was our 2 and a half years! I still can't believe it's been this long and that he's put up with me for all this time XD To celebrate we went out for Dinner, and we decided to try a new place, Finesse, in Kingston. It was a Chinese buffet and it wasn't that expensive either! The food was really good, there was the normal chinese buffet like you usually get and there was also 'Tepenyaki' where she grilled chicken, beef and prawns fresh for us. The prawns were my favourite! We were both really pleased so we will be returning there again! :)

What do you do for date night? :)

Fur Elise- Beethoven

I can't precisely remember when I learnt this song, but I think it's been a good 7 years haha! Now don't ask me why I didn't record it sooner, well I guess it has something to do with the fact that I find it so so hard to play in front of an audience.. or a camera haha XD

BUT I thought that I need to man up and get recording. So here is my piano cover :) I apologise for the mistakes and any bad habits I've picked up over the years playing this song but here it is! :) I should really practice recording myself playing more often haha :)

If you wanted to watch my previous piano cover you can find it here :)


Hope you like it! Do you have any song covers? If so link me below! And if you have any tips for performing or recording that would be greatly appreciated! :)
