here to stay

Hello everyone! I have returned! After 2 weeks of gruelling revision and exams, I can return to blogging without feeling guilty for not revising! It's safe to say I am very happy that my exam period is over (until summer at least) and I'm looking forward to getting back into a nice, regular blogging routine. I did actually finish on Thursday but I didn't want to do anything that night but relax and pamper myself and then last night I went into Manchester with my friend Lottie and we didn't get back until very late. So today I thought I would update  you on what I've been up to these past two days :)

I don't really have much to say and the only pictures I have are ones I took on my iPhone but I hope you enjoy! After school on Thursday, I walked down from school to meet my dad at Costa before he treated me to a frozen yoghurt at our local Yogberries. It was so delicious and I forgot how good they were! I got a small natural with honeycomb and white chocolate buttons. I'm already excited about getting my next one!

When my parents got home we then went out for dinner at one of my favourite restaurant's - The American Bar and Grill. It does the most amazing dishes and I always get a burger. Every time. They're honestly so delicious and can't recommend it enough. If you're ever in that area, definitely pop in! On Thursday night, my parents and I shared some nacho's and then I had a Sweet Carolina burger. Please enjoy the next few pictures of food porn ;)

(these are seriously the best curly fries you will ever try!)

(i hope you can see from this picture that i enjoyed my dinner very very much!)
After dinner we just came home as we had school/work the next day and I simply played some Pokemon on my Nintendo.

Last night, as I've already mentioned, I went into Manchester with my friend Lottie for our first 'date night' in a while! To those who visit Manchester often, you will probably know of Affleck's Palace? I don't even know how to describe it but it's full of lots of little shops/stalls with all sorts of clothes, jewellery, food etc. There are literally so many things you can buy there! Anyway, I only go to get my piercings and last night I was going to get a few more but unfortunately we were too late and it had shut :( I was a little disappointed as I've been looking forward to getting some new piercings for ages but I guess I'll just have to go another time! However, after an unsuccessful part of the evening, we went to the cinema to check out times for The Impossible, booked some tickets and popped for a spot of dinner at Wagamama's. It is probably our favourite place to eat ever and we always go there. We both had a Chicken Katsu Curry (let's be honest now, why would you have anything else?) and caught up which was lovely. 

After we were done we headed round the corner to the cinema and settled down to watch The Impossible (trailer here). I have honestly never seen such a moving and emotional film. I was in tears from pretty much the beginning to the end. It was both heart breaking and amazing at the same time. I guess it didn't help that it is based on a true story. When the tsunami hit in 2004, I was only 10 and didn't really take into account the true damage that had been caused. The film opened my eyes to the horrors that happened and how unbelievably horrendous (that doesn't even cover it!) the tragedy was. I definitely recommend to everyone to go and see it. Even if you don't cry at sad films, it will just move you completely. The following picture will show you how much Lottie and I cried...

(maybe mascara wasn't the best idea...)
Safe to say I'll be avoiding emotional films for a while...

But yes. That's all I have to update you on for now! I'm going to spend the rest of the day watching The Hills (seasons 1 - 5) and watching films. I honestly can't explain how nice it is to just relax after working non stop for the past month. But to the rest of you, I hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend and have had a great start to the year!

There may be another post later but we'll have to see :)

  7. Ugh, I've just come back from two weeks in France and Italy and even though I was eating pizza and pasta the WHOLE TIME, I was really missing burgers! I don't really trust a restaurant that doesn't have a burger on the menu ;)
