Dressed in Chi Chi London

I feel like I haven't done an outfit post for a very long time, which is definitely the case as it has been about 3 months. I thought I'd use the excuse that I've been to my boyfriend's brother's wedding and bought a whole new outfit to do one. To the wedding I wore this beautiful dress from Chi Chi London, which I bought from ASOS. I knew I was looking for a red dress, it's my favourite colour to wear and I'm told it suits me. The detailed embroidery on Chi Chi London dresses is incredible and part of the reason I think it was a good wedding guest outfit choice.

I decided to keep my accessories to a minimum for the wedding. I wore my Oasis Black Heeled Sandals, which I had bought mainly for maximum comfort due to being at the wedding all day and dancing in the evening. I had an O.P.I. gel pedicure a few days before so my toes were looking nice in my shoes, they were painted with the colour 'Big Apple Red'. For all of my essentials for the day, I used my Vivienne Westwood clutch bag which is the most beautiful bag I own. It also went well with my Vivienne Westwood earrings, watch and ring I wore on the day. I was so excited to go to a wedding because I love dressing up, doing my make-up and hair, and I love weddings in general.

Osteria Rodizio Rico | The Cube, Birmingham

I was invited to the launch of Osteria Rodizio Rico last week, a new all-you-can-eat pizza and pasta restaurant in The Cube in Birmingham. Me and Chloe went along with empty stomachs ready to sample all of the tasty foods on offer. We were greeted at the door with a strawberry bellini, which is one of my favourite cocktails, so we'd got off to a great start.

Not too long after we got there, nibbles were served on the front deck in the form of focaccia, olives, ham and cheese. We all helped ourselves and got into eating, before cheesy garlic bread was brought round which was divine. Rather than a usual all-you-can-eat buffet, mains of pizza and pasta were brought round to our tables at regular intervals, and we got to taste a variety of different flavour combinations. My favourites were definitely the four cheese and pepperoni pizza. We also got to taste bolognese, bacon and vodka pasta and a pizza with lemon on, which was very unusual. 

For unlimited pizza and pasta at lunchtime it'll cost you £9.90 and for dinner it'll cost you £14.90, which is such a reasonable price for the quality of food served and the amount you can eat. The delicious bellinis are priced at £9 a glass. Osteria Rodizio Rico is in such a central location in Birmingham that it's definitely worth a visit if you're looking to eat some authentic tasting Italian food.

Thank you to 8848 agency for the complimentary press invite and for Osteria Rodizio Rico for having us!

2017 Films | April - June

Between April and June there weren't many films out in the cinema that I wanted to see. However, the two films I have seen in this time were incredible and definitely worth the watch. Both were 'superhero movies', which is one of my favourite genres, one coming from Marvel and the other from DC.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2
The first Guardians of the Galaxy film is definitely one of my favourite films of all time, everything about it I love, including the soundtrack, the humour and Groot. Because of how amazing the first film was, I was nervous to see the sequel because I didn't know whether it'd be as amazing as the first one. I'd say it wasn't quite as amazing as the first film, but it was still incredible and I loved it so much. I would definitely watch this film over and over again.

Wonder Woman
I LOVED this film so much, it kept my interest for the whole time which is difficult with my short attention span, and I thought it was unbelievable. This has definitely got to be up there as one of my favourite DC films and there were points where I related to Wonder Woman (except her powers, of course). I loved the time it was set around too, any film or book set in a World War always manages to capture my interest. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone.
