Food, Glorious Food

Hi Guys!
Who doesn't love food? I am such a massive food lover, I will spend ridiculous amount of money just to try new things. Recently I thought I'd make a Milky Way chocolate cake for everyone in my family to try, and it was delicious.
I used two chocolate cake mixes to make the cake and dark chocolate, Milky Way stars and crispy rolls for the decoration.
The stars started to melt which made the cake taste even better!
Me and my boyfriend also ordered some dominos pizza that day. It was delicious!
The next day my mum made the best home made burgers ever. I can't even describe the flavour, it was so magical.
Lots of love,

Review || TGI Fridays Restaurant

Hi guys,
Just a quick post today as I have been very busy revising for my exams. I don't want to disappoint any of you so I thought I'd do a quick restaurant review. Back in April, I went to quite a few birthday meals as my close friends were turning 18, and one of the restaurants I went to was TGI Fridays.
I really liked the décor as it was very 90's Las Vegas kind of style, which made me feel a bit like a rock star ;) The staff were very friendly and offered us a selection of menus and deals to choose from.
I chose grilled chicken skewers for the starter, I forgot to take a picture of it :( but, I chose the Club Chicken Sandwich for the main which was delicious as you can see above. I think I added a bit too much salt and pepper to my chips, but hey ho! The meal was very filling and tasty. I will definitely return there again, maybe even sooner than I think. :)
Here's a picture of the gorgeous birthday girl. She looked stunning in her white sheer top and high waisted leggings. She wore smaller heels than me, yet she was still about a foot taller! Oh the joys of being a hobbit!
Lots of love,

Healthy Diet Plan

Hello everyone!
Oh dear, I really do need to get into a routine of posting more on my blog! I recently decided to go on a diet, as I have got slightly bit rounder since I started my new job at Dominos Pizza (I can't resist a free pizza). I drastically cut down on fast food, such as Mcdonalds, Dominos, Chinese take away etc. I also stopped snacking, not altogether of course! I stopped eating excessive amounts of chocolate, sweets and crisps and replaced those fatty foods with fresh fruit and low calorie snacks. 
I decided to drink at least two smoothies a week, which are full of vitamins and minerals that will make my skin and hair much better. I thought I will take some pictures to add to this post of the last smoothie I made.
I used seedless grapes, two bananas, two kiwis (I added another one after I took this photo) and a Frugo juice. I regret not peeling the grapes as the skin did not blend in the mixer :(
I chopped the fruit and put it in the smoothie mixer. After they blended quite well I added the juice and some extra water for it to be smooth and runny instead of really thick.
And the results were amazing. This smoothie was very different to what I usually stick to, but it was a nice change and I will be definitely making this again :)
After my morning smoothie I thought I'd make a healthy lunch. I heated up canned tomato soup and added some spices to make it less sweet. I sliced a wholegrain bagel in half, and voilla! Lunch = sorted. :)
Lots of love,
