TGI Friday's Cocktail Event

*Apologies, picture heavy post*

Last Thursday, I was invited to an event at TGI Friday's in Birmingham. The night was a cocktails and art event to showcase some of TGI Friday's new cocktails. I could bring a plus one so I asked one of my best friends Siobhan to accompany me. 

We were given a card for 3 complimentary cocktails each. Here are a few that we tried:



  • Popping Candy Strawberry Margarita
  • Passion fruit Bellini
  • Strawberry Shortcake
  • Purple Rain


  • We then tried some tapas which I definitely welcomed as I was a little bit hungry after a long day at work! We had the pretzel bread and dip as well as BBQ and Jack Daniel's chicken skewers which were all yummy.


    A bit later, we had the chance to go behind the bar and make our own cocktail. This was interesting as you can see on instagram here:

    They had arranged some cute activities to keep us entertained throughout the night. There was a man drawing caricatures (Alex Hughes) and I was the first volunteer of the night. The cocktail drawn is a 'Cherry Stag', however, I don't like cherry so gave that one a miss. 



    There were canvas bags and paint pens for us to design our own bags. Here's what we came up with:



    I really like TGI Friday's even though I don't go too often but it's definitely one of the places where I choose to have a cocktail with my meal and after trying a variety I know which ones I'd have again!

    Thanks to TGI's for inviting me!

    Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

    Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon!

I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great

    Astrid & Miyu

    Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

    Statement Necklaces - NEXT

    I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.
