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!

    My Roaccutane Journey

    This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes...
    Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to.
    My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist.

    Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times I had left the house without ma…

    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!

    Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park' Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. 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 brush and this plum colour is perfe…

    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.

    This grey jewelled clutch bag caught my eye and was £20.
