Yesterday I had I lovely relaxing afternoon with my girl friends at the Vale Resort, having afternoon tea. We had the new summer afternoon tea menu, which works out at £35 for two.
Last week I was invited back, with Johny to FeD Cardiff to try their new chef special menu.
If you don’t know who Fed are they are a ‘Food Exploration Destination‘. A restaurant were you can have dishes from a wide range of cuisines including; Chinese, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Tex-Mex and Grill.
When I heard that the lovely Katie was organising a blogger event for the new Kiehl’s Cardiff store, I knew I had to go! Kiehl’s has always been a brand I have been longing to try but never had the chance to as there were no counters near where I live. I’d continuously hear the songs and praises from people using their products and was really intrigued to learn what knowledge of skincare they had.
As some of you may know, after 3 years, I have decided go back to college and I will be starting next week to follow my dream of going into healthcare OH MY GOD, I’M BACK IN EDUCATION! The funny thing is I never really enjoyed college the first time around, I mainly just liked the social aspect. However I am seriously excited to start learning again, I’m not sure why exactly as I think a few months down line I’ll be crying ‘WHHYYY, why did I do this to myself’. Perhaps it’s because I am doing something completely different and it feels like a fresh start. Who knows? But Monday can’t come quick enough.
This week has been a bit of a whirlwind, to be honest I can’t really remember what happened. I had work – as usual busy busy. I had two hospital appointments. I had yummy food. I said goodbye to my family as they are all going on holiday for two weeks. House to myself, well and Johny. Oh and of course the cat. I’m off work in one of my jobs for two weeks myself so am going to work hard on my blog.
This week I’ve been busy working and also going to the gym with my cousin and sister. I also had a lovely time shopping with my mum, cousin and two sisters. Spent a bit too much money but oh well, it was worth it! Johny and I got to spend some together and we booked our ferry crossing for our holiday to the Isle of White.
I’ve really enjoyed this week! Busy working for the most part but managed to do a few things in between. Johny and I both had our haircuts, and I’m in love with my new style. I also did a bit of shopping. I picked up some mats and a Yankee candle air freshener for my car. I also got a few bits of stationary ready for college and some new bedding for my room.
Waking up at 5:30am and leaving Swansea Coach station at 7:00, we prepared ourselves for the exciting day ahead. The girls and I were heading to London for the #BigBloggerExpo event, held by Lauren and Abi. I was stoked to be going to such a great event, but also so pleased to be going to London. I hadn’t been since I was a little girl, so I was looking forward to seeing the different lifestyle aspect.
During mine and the girls stay at Bluestone we decided to have a little adventure to Folly Farm. Well it wasn’t little, it was actually quite big. Also it was more like a Zoo than a farm. Yes you heard me, Folly Farm has got Zoo animals! Thinking back to when I used to visit when I was young, there was a few sheep, goats, pigs, cows and a horse. The girls and I were so excited and wanted to see what it was like for 5 young adults, in what used to be our childhood day trip.
