Hey guys, so on Wednesday Oroma and I got invited to the new Five Guys Restaurant opened in Cardiff. I can remember trying the Fries in Covent Garden after London Fashion Week and they were to die for. Of course I have been majorly craving them since last year and thankfully a store has opened near my City now. We were both so excited to go and taste it for ourselves. Firstly we met the lovely manager Steven who was very kind and welcoming and suggested that we try the milkshakes. We saw a combination online that sounded good, it was the Peanut Butter, Banana and Salted Caramel along with Whipped Cream on top. It was heavenly, not going to lie! When we waited for our food, Oroma taught me how to properly open Peanuts haha. They were very yummy and full of protein. Yes this was like a cheat meal of the week and my abs knew it. We were both really hungry when we got our food that we rushed it so quickly that we were stuffed I couldn't even finish mine! Next time you have to eat it slowly and actually enjoy the whole experience but of course we were both like kids in a sweet shop. This is what Oroma ordered;
Bacon Cheese Burger with Lettuce, Pickle, Mushroom and Jalapeños.
With Cajun Fries
Pretty much everything hot!
I had a basic Hot Dog with Mustard and Ketchup
All the toppings were free which was a bonus, a bit like Subway.
In total for both our meals and Milkshakes it came to £28 which is fairly reasonable.
The whole place is a great experience, collecting your food and even listening to the cheesy 70s American tunes. All in all it was a great day out and I must warn you now its very filling so worth the money, I would like to say thanks to Catherine at Halpern.
Hope you all get a chance to go and taste this food its too good!!

Lots of love,

Black Floppy Hat- TOPSHOP/ Circle Black Sunglasses- PRIMARK/ Floral Playsuit*- Miss Selfridge at HOUSE OF FRASER/ White Bag- NEW LOOK/ White Heeled Sandals- NEW LOOK

Hey guys, back with a girly outfit this time and I am in love with this Floral Playsuit from House of Fraser. Took a day off to spend in the lovely sunshine with my blogger friends Oroma. We strolled around town and danced to some live music near the River Bank, ate some cheeky Cakes and then couldn't find a good location where it wasn't windy that day. I thought back to this street which is one of my favourites in this Welsh City. It reminds me so much of London with the Traditional Red Brick wall and the Black railings it makes me want to live in London so badly. I bought this White Bag from New Look last week, I know I am living on a budget this Summer but it had to match my Shoes for this outfit. Wish I could have returned it to get my money back for food but I fell in love with it. Its the perfect size for a Petite Girl, do you ever get that problem where Bags just look to big for your height?

Anyway, the weather has been so warm and beautiful and I am starting to feel really Summery, off to Cardiff tomorrow with my Blogger friend Oroma, up to our wonderful adventures exploring the City. So stay tuned for some Cardiff photos of us out and about, hopefully we can have a cheeky Five Guys Burger and Fries, we will see.

Lots of love,

White Hat*- LA REDOUTE/ Polka Dot Playsuit- MISS SELFRIDGE/ Sunglasses- PRIMARK/ Black Shorts*- LA REDOUTE/ Flip Flops*- LA REDOUTE/ Black Swimsuit*- LA REDOUTE

Hey guys, back with a beach shoot and when I thought about trying to do one I had to think twice. My mind set is back when I was a size 6 with no boobs and no bum and I ordered this Black Swimsuit from La Redoute thinking it would fit. Little did I know that my somewhat glute gains from 3 months of consistent gym had made my butt perkier, so the size 10 didn't even fit comfortably around my cheeks. To top it off my bust couldn't fit a size 10 so with this look I had to wear a bra. I think I will order a Bikini next time that way its easier to buy larger and smaller sizes tailoring to your body shape. The Flip Flops were a size 3.5 and I had seemed to have stretched them in a bit and now they fit perfectly. Here are five ways you can wear Swimwear, basically I wore something lightweight to the Beach that I can easily remove and zip back up. This one is my all time favourite from Miss Selfridge that I bought last year to go to the Miss Guided Press Day. I am really digging the Monochrome palette this Summer along with a touch of 70s now and then. You can't go wrong with a pair of Black Circle Sunnies though from Primark it adds that instant Retro feel to the whole outfit. Secondly I tailored the look with some Black Shorts from La Redoute just to put back on when I come out from the Sea or even to wear when sunbathing. In another look I did before the beach shoot I managed to wear the White Sun Hat with another outfit in my Nao post. Check out the blog feature here on La Redoutes Blog.
