Well its actually 2 weeks into it but still. Where did 2016 even go?
The first 2 weeks of 2017 have been manic, so its time for an update.
I’ve tried out cineworlds new 4DX experience (think theatre type disney ride – your chair moves, you get sprayed with water and ‘punched’ in the back) and saw Star Wars rouge one.
The film was FANTASTIC! And that’s coming from someone that has zero interest in the Star Wars franchise. I even fell asleep 15 minutes into the last one. That happens to everyone i hear you cry, i however, went to an 8am showing (so it wasn’t even night time), at the IMAX (super duper loud) and even sat behind Brian may (queen)! Yet i still managed to nod off less than a quarter of the way through!
I also visited
and reviewed the bottomless Brunch Avalible at London’s Big Easy restaurant. You can read the full review (with AMAZING food pictures) HERE.
I spent a bit of time on the blog over christmas. Its finally starting to look how i want it and although its been very testing, (i’ve spent hours staring at code with no idea what im doing) I’m determined to look after this site by myself for as long as i can.
There’s even more exciting times ahead as we head off to……
Amsterdam this weekend!
If you follow me on social media, you’ll know that im in Amsterdam VERY often. I love the vibe of the city and it feels like a home away from home. It’s soooo cheap to get to from London and nothing compares to the hustle and bustle of its streets verses its calm and serene setting in a museum or cafe. We’re meeting up with another couple out there and surprising my partners friend for his birthday! I love surprises! Especially this kind.
We’ll be catching the last day of the Light Festival and taking a ride on the highest swing n Europe!
I’ll be updating social media whilst we’re there and at some point over the next month i’ll be writing about the time we spent only 13 hours in amsterdam! (It wasn’t a lay over. We literally went all the way to Amsterdam for less than a day. It really is my favourite city)
Also this month its Chinese New year
In Central London there’s an area called China Town and we’ll be heading there to join in the celebrations and i’ll be sharing everything on Instagram with you guys! Its the year of the Rooster so if you were born in 1969, 1981, 1993 this could be your most unlucky year according to Chinese astrology! (Sorry to break it to ya)
As per usual, i’ve been planning my Travel intenary for 2017! I’m unsure if im the only one, but i get soooooo much joy out of planning a trip. Sometimes more joy than the trip has brought me itself.
