Nu Bar - ESSEX

Well this is another late post ! But bare with me while i catch up :D ..

So here we are, its coming up to the week of christmas and i was going down to my boyfriends in london, when we come to the dielmma of what to do on new years eve? Hmm there where a few options.
1. Go into london - (Hmm to expensive)
2. Go to cambridge - (We'd already been there)
3. Somewhere new -( But where?)

So, looking for somewhere new to go, i get searching twitter, and come across  @nubar_essex , who ive been following for a while, and i always see the pictures from there, and it always looks packed. So i decided to put the idea across to john (and secretley pray he would agree), for us to go.

It turned out, that he had never been to essex before and agreed it would be something different, so it was final! Nu bar it was.

I found an amazing little hotel on laterooms.com (amazing offers on there!) for £65, which we both thought was ideally located and so cheap especially for new years eve night, and in essex, john provided the tickets and we were all set to go.

So we started the night off in the hotel room, id sent john out to get some alcohol and munchies, yet he came back with a bottle of wine, cookies crisps and a bottle of champagne! (all fun and games)

We even experimented putting tan on john ( but i wont talk to much about it as he will kill me, i will say though that he washed it straight off haha!!)

The night started out.. pretty much normal and nice like this ..

We were all set to go and get ready to rave our socks off, the hotel was great with a great service and a taxi service straight away. So we finally got there and at first i was a little shocked as i wasnt expecting it to be situated where it was, and i did assume it was going to be alot bigger, but as they say, 'good things come in small packages'. We were very impressed as the night got going. The music was excellent , the atmosphere was brilliant, and even the people were very friendly, especially when they heard me speak they were all complimentive! And even two guys in there were in love with my hair haha!

All in all it was an excellent night, we had raved till our feet hurt (well mine, and my killer heels) met some amazing people, and i would definatley go back again! One of the best bars that i have been to in a long time, with great service, a great atmosphere and great people in there.
ill leave you with some pics of how the night ended, but if your ever down that way! Do drop in , as you will be sure to enjoy your night no matter who your with :) ..

Winter Wonderland

Well this is a very very late post !

Ive been rather busy lately, over christmas working etc, so i do apologise for this but,
better late than never aye!

This post is about Winter Wonderland in Hyde park (no longer there, now but will be back next year :).
It was the most magical thing ive ever been to, especially as i went with the lovely boyfriend!

It was beautiful, the atmosphere there, the stalls and the activites that where avaliable, it was all so festive and christmassy. Plus the bonus of it was, you would love it whether you were just with friends, or loved ones, or family, it was definatley an occasion for all people.

Firtsly we walked around the place, to get a feel of it and see where everything was basically. We chose to go at night, as thats when our ice skating times where. ( You have to book in advance if you want to go ice skating, as they have high volumes of people, you can do this by booking online and they show you the avaliable times you can choose.)

It was beautiful, the little stalls where my favourite.. where john bought me these...

So we had a little time to kill before our ice skating was due, we went into a little hut, that had food and alcohol! what more could you want, the only downside was that the place we went into had a spinning floor which was also the bar, i couldnt look at it for very long it made me feel sick and dizzy, haha!So we filled our bellys up of some food and a cheeky beverage, then headed back out, on our way .. we decided we would take advantage of the statues around the park and got pictures with nearly everything haha! .. here is a couple for you to check out...

Me and my toy solider.

John Very Stuck :) Hahaha

We then decided to hit the big wheel, at first i was fine about it until we actually got right up to it, i saw the size of it and started to panic a little, i kept it well hidden of course! But it was so worth it when we got upto the top, the view was amazing, and i just wanted to stay there forever, it was truly something magical.

We finally ended up with our ice skating fiasco, i hadnt been since i was like 15 so 4 years ago, and even then it was my first time, so i wasnt quite sure how i would be on the ice, but my bambi style boyfriend was a bit more concerned than me, he was so sure that he would be straight on his face as soon as he got on the ice, but with me as a perfect guide, he was amazing at it (for his first go), he was wobbling around a little at first going forwards and backwards trying to get his balance, but after about ten minutes he was fine, gliding around the place with me in tow! It was amazing, although some of the professionals where just zooming past us, which made the rest of us feel a little inadequate. But all in all it was a fantastic experience, they even had a photographer on the ice which was brilliant.

I would definatley reccomend going, if your close to london or even just an excuse to get down there, this winter when it comes back, it will be an amazing experience and i guarantee you will love it just like we did. :D

Inked for life ..

Well this is for all you tattoo lovers out there,
Its safe to say i am a tattoo fanatic, and when people say once you get one your addicted and you always
want another because this is exactly like me, in total i have 3., and im still itching to
get a few more.
For those that dont know me i basically just wanted to explain the reasons behind why i have the tattoos, and what they mean to me, as i definatley believe that you should only get a tattoo until you know exactly what you want and if it means something to you.. So here goes ..

My first tattoo..                                                              
I got this done back in august 2010,   i was sooooo scared (because i cant take any sort of pain)
But i sat in the chair and thought come on lets do this!! .. and tbh if you've never had a tattoo, it wasnt as bad as what i thought, its just a hot stinging pain, and in all fairness quite very addictive haha!
Anyway it says 'she flies with her own wings'. i chose this because, it basically means that she has her own independance, and from a very young age i have been very independant, ive never had my mum tell me or force me into do anything i didnt want to do, she let me do what i wanted aslong as it made me happy, and i think it just reflects me as a person.

So the 2nd tattoo guys is ...

This is just a butterfly on my hip and i got this in march 2011..this was basically to match my first tattoo 'she flies with her own wings' .. i also got this because i love butteflies there so pretty and delicate, pretty much like me, (in the delicate sense anyway).

Lastly my last tattoo which i got in july 2011..

This is my favourite tattoo if i had to choose one. This says 'Credere Fudicia Sognare' which means .. 'Believe Trust Dream' in italian. This tattoo is more of a motivational one, because yes even me! needs a little confidence boost lately, i got it to remind me that anything is possible, and alls i need to do is basically Believe, trust and dream, and ill get where i want to be in life. Im one of those people who comes across all confident and smiley, but really im not i have so many negatives, and this is basically to remind me that, everything will be okay, and ill be fine no matter what happens.

So now a few treats for you guys to show you them all together :) .. Enjoy !! and P.S if your thinking of getting a tattoo ! Definatley think about what you want because at the end of the day you are inked for life....

Mwah mwah mwah .. xxxx <3

The One..

Well I’m Very new to this guys, so bare with me on the process of blogging.. (i may be awful at it haha.)
I first wanted to blog about something that’s very special to me (many of you may not read it or be interested but, I wanted to blog about fun things, and things that are important to me.) 
So here goes.. 
                 There is one very special person in my life right now, and they have changed my world upside down, even more than i could ever imagine possible. Its like that feeling you got when you was a child, waiting in excitement and anticipation to run downstairs and see what Santa brought you, well i get this feeling every time i see his smile, or when im about to see him again. 
I know people can relate to this because, i know most of you will have felt like this or feel like this at some point in your life. But everyday feels magical, the butterflies i get, the way i feel, the fact there’s a spring to every step i take, and its all because of him, the one person, who gets me and understands me, and who would never let me down. 
   Im sorry for going on and it might all sound a cliché to some , but i cant help but fall madly in love every single day more and more.. i do believe that you have to kiss alot of frogs before you find your prince.. as i know because ive kissed many of frogs (worthless frogs may i add haha) but i finally got my prince.. 
And i wouldnt change him for anything in the world!.. 
But for girls out there who have lost a little hope, and feel like giving up on love.. dont give up, theres someone out there for everyone, believe me i went through the exact same, your time will come till you find your prince charming… <3 i guarantee it …
Much Love Guys ... xxx

P.S Here is my Prince ...
