Sunday Smiles: Crepes, Cocktails & Car Trips


Which explains why this will be my third (!!!) blog post of the week, when I'd been struggling to get one out a fortnight this past few weeks. I love my blog millions but final year exams and dissertation had to take priority. So they did, they're over, and now I'm the happiest bunny you ever did see.

This monumentally happy week naturally came with some tears too. As you may have read, my best friend moved out of our flat and back to London. SO of course that meant that our last couple of days had to be rammed with as much fun as I could fit in. It ended up being a fabulously fun week, if I say so myself. Here's what I've been up to!

Martin, Aisha and I celebrated Martin's 25th and the end of exams with tapas and cocktails at Revolucion de Cuba (FYI, if you haven't tried a Miami Vice you haven't lived). I got just a liiiittle bit drunk off 2 cocktails and couldn't eat my tapas... But it was still a lush night.

I took Aisha to Cowbridge, a small local town, for lunch time crepes at Beagles. I was semi-heartbroken that they took my favourite crepe off the menu but I still managed to beast a gigantic banoffee pancake like a pro.

We also discovered a "Physics Garden" which was just pure gorgeous. Each section of the garden was dedicated to the plants for healing different body part/illness. How lovely is that?!

On Wednesday, I was very kindly invited to Burger and Lobster in Cardiff to try their new menu so I went with a couple of friends on Wednesday night and we all had an absolute feast. My first ever taste of lobster AND, maybe my new favourite dish - lobster mac and cheese. YES, my friends. YOU HEARD RIGHT. It was phenomenal.

Thursday was the higlight of the week for me. I took Aisha west to Tenby and Saundersfoot as she'd never been and they are some of the most beautiful places in Wales, in my opinion. We had BEAUT sunshine, I had my first ice cream cone of the summer (peanut butter flavour, in case you were wondering) and we spent fucking HOURS in the car. I forgot how far it was. MY GOD. But it was so worth it.

Aisha and I (do you sense a running theme of the week...? I do have other friends, honest) went back to Burger and Lobster for a 'cocktails and canape party where we tasted some of their new cocktails and munched on a bit more lobster and it was the perfect last night before she went home. I highly highly recommend B&L if you want something a bit different and a bit fancy but don't want to pay gazillions for the experience.

So that was my week!
The best week I've had in SUCH a long time, having time to enjoy myself and not worry about exams or uni was just the best feeling. What have you been up to? Can you beat my hardcore busy week of fun?!
