Yesterday morning, Sols woke me up bright and early on a Sunday to go and get a nice breakfast, which if you know me well enough… ended up being brunch. Instead of getting a traditional full english, I treated myself to an Avocado Brunch – this included ciabatta bread, avocado, tomato, chilli and bacon (if you want.)
After this we went straight into Bournemouth town to do a bit of shopping and spend time in the Christmas market. To end the perfect Sunday, we had biscuits, tea and watch Sherlock homes. What a lovely weekend! – Now time to be extremely productive before I break up for Christmas on the 14th.
TIME TO GET READY FOR CHRISTMAS!
Christmas is the happiest time of the year and it is now acceptable to start celebrating! This weekend Solly came to visit, so on the Saturday we went for a dinner at Zizzis and lots of cocktails at Slug & Lettuce.
Today is the first of all our Christmas calendars and this year I am using ‘The Book of Beauty!’ My mum bought it for me as a pre – Christmas present – I will let you know all the amazing products I get after Christmas.
Happy December the 1st!
Barolo Restaurant and Slug & Lettuce
This weekend my boyfriend Solly came to visit me in Bournemouth and see my new house. He arrived pretty late on the Saturday because I woke up early afternoon as I worked late the night before. As soon as he got here we just chilled, drank tea and watch rubbish TV.
In the evening we went to a lovely Italian restaurant on Winton high street, which is only a 5 minute walk from my house. We weren’t able to get a table there until 9:30PM so we went to the Conto Lounge from a drink first. I bought a expresso martini which was gross!! They only added the coffee and vodka, not any syrup or sugar! I was very disappointed, but then I got my pina colada and was happy again. The Italian restaurant was called Barolo and it was so nice. It was extremely lively and packed with people all evening. I had calamari to begin with and then a chorizo, mushroom, tomato pasta as a main, it was lush!! For desert we shared a vanilla cheesecake, my favourite.
Family in Bournemouth | The Stable Restaurant
An evening in Leisture Square | M&M World & Jamie Olivers Diner
Lago Martianez | Puerto De La Cruz
By the time our meal had finished it was around 11:30PM so we just headed home.
On the Sunday we woke up and had a chilled morning. I hadn’t been in to Bournemouth town in the day time since I have been back for second year, so it was nice to spend the afternoon shopping with Solly and sat having an ice cream by the beach. For lunch we went to Slug & Lettuce which I LOVE. I think the place is so funky and serves great food. I had an avocado, halloumi and tomato sandwich with sweet potato fries.
After spending the afternoon in town, we headed back to mine and watch ‘The Other Guys’ before Sol headed home at 7:00PM.
Happy weekend everybody!! Have the best week.
In Malaga instead of staying in a hotel, we booked out a huge villa for 20 people on Home and Away and it had it all. We couldn’t of asked for more. It had a hot tub, bed outside, our own pool with a slide, a balcony with a BBQ, a bar and so much more. The only thing we didn’t have was any clubs or shops near by. Technically we weren’t in Malaga, we were right on the out skirts and to get into the centre cost 30 euros – that is where all our money went!!
Getting a villa was the best idea because we could do whatever we wanted, we could wake up, make breakfast and just chill. Because we were in the middle of nowhere we had no noise complaints which was perfect.
If you ever need to book a holiday, go through Home and Away. It is a great service!!
I am officially back at University in Bournemouth and trying to enjoy freshers. I am so ready just to start lectures now, waking up in the morning with nothing to do gets extremely boring!!
