Montpeliers Restaurant

Hi there guys,

So my aunties, myself and my big sister Angela, met up for our annual Christmas Treat. Last year we went to see Wicked at the Playhouse, this year we done something a little...different, as nothing showing at the Playhouse caught our interest. So my aunties booked us ticked to got see Cinderella the panto, at the Churchill Theatre.

Before going to the panto we met at my auntie Catherine's home, where she put together an amazing spread for us.

Yeah this didn't last very long -so delicious!

We chased all this down with some Cherry Brandy and Echo Falls before heading to the show.

After the show we headed down the street to Montpeliers for what would be a lovely Christmas meal.

(This is not my picture)

Such a lovely little restaurant and bar, look at all the fairylights, and the little christmas tree, and just look at the little stockings on the wall tree, all of these little touches as well as the warm lighting made this Montpeliers a beautiful setting.

Myself and my Auntie Margaret has cheeky little mojito -I swear this was double shot though, it was so strong, we had screwed up faces every time we took a sip.

For my, and I all of our, starters we had Monty's prawn cocktail with mini malted loaf and lemon
This was delicious, don't forget to squeeze the lemon over it though, otherwise, to me, it tastes horrible.

As we ordered off of the Christmas menu we got Christmas crackers, and they were actually good quality ones, the jokes where as good as cracker jokes can be, except that Angela and Auntie Catherine got the same ones. I played with that blue spinney thing so much during the courses -I'm easily entertained as you could probably tell.

Mains: Roasted turkey breast with sage and onion stuffing, goose fat potatoes and root vegetables.
Oh where do I begin with this, my mouth is watering at the memory of it. I wasn't sure if I was actually going to enjoy this all that much -I've NEVER had stuffing before, because my family is weird, turns out I freaking love it, its now a must, and I thought the cranberry sauce would already be poured over the food, thankfully it wasn't (I'm not a fan of the old cranberry sauce). The turkey was nice a tender, easily cut, the gravy was a thing of dreams and all together...let just say you're lucky I didn't lick the plate clean.

Dessert: Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake 
I was so full after the mains, I'm not sure why I order it, but the few mouthfuls I had were delicious, I thought about taking it home, but I knew I was going to go home and slip into a food coma so decided not to. it was very yummy though.

All in all, I would give Montpeliers a 5/5, I really, really enjoyed my time there and I can't wait to go back and try their normal menu.

What I Got For Christmas 2015

Hi there guys,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, spent time with your family, and ate all the chocolate you could and then some. And of course I hope Santa was good to you.

Disclaimer: I understand that Christmas is not about the presents, and I would happily just spend all day in my P.J.s, surrounded by my family, eating chocolate and watching Christmas movies -and maybe having a little cheeky bevy haha, because my family genuinely make me so happy and makes me laugh until I'm in tears, so that would've been enough for me. But thankfully we are in the position where we can buy each other presents, and here is what I was given, plus I'm so nosy and love reading these kind of posts and binge watch these kind of videos on YouTube, so I thought I'd post my own for others to read.

My biggest present and the one I love most and hold closet to me is my little puppy -Harley, myself, my brother James and my parents all chipped in to buy this little brat, So I think she classes as a Christmas present. Look at her -like butter wouldn't melt.

UrBeats by Dr. Dre
My dad surprised me big time with these.

All of the Urban Decay Naked Eye Palettes 
I think I die a go to makeup heaven every time I look at them. Ahh so beautiful.

Vera Wang Princess Perfume
This perfume has been my favourite and my go to sent since I was about 14, if anyone is stuck on what to get me -get me this!

My sister, Angela, and her boyfriend, Patrick, got me my very own BLOG DOMAIN
This is probably a close second in my favourites from this year -thank you again Angela and Patrick, and thank you for choosing a name I like.

No.7 Nail Polish in Milan
Now I'm not a big fan of nail polish, it irritates me so much and no matter how long I wait for it to dry it always smudges, but this nail polish is the easiest thing I've ever applied to my nails, it took me seconds to do both nails, my be the shape of the...wand(?) but it just works for me.

Sparkling Wine and Chocolates 
From the Secret Santa I did with my friends...but I ate and drank it all at the Secret Santa party...sorry not sorry.

Candy Pizza
From my work Secret Santa -I work at an Italian restaurant so I think this is rather fitting.  

Christmas Treat with my Sister and Aunties
My mum and her sisters, treat me and my sister to a day out, we normally go see a show and then go out for dinner. 
A restaurant review will be up tomorrow, and a little explanation of the full day.

Red leather 2016 Diary 

Also I got some Money, most of which has already been spent on this blog (a new blog template will be coming soon), and I've bought myself a microphone for my camera so that I can maybe do some videos for you guys, and a few dresses for New Years, and of course makeup.

Once again a massive thank you to everyone who gave me a gift and I spent time with over the holidays.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
