So at the weekend we went to stay in Bath for the weekend – we indulged in shopping and food, lots of food!! Oh and not forgetting some drinking and dancing…
I’ve recently started collecting Funko POP! figures, I signed up to a monthly subscription called Pop in a box but I current resist buying a couple and walked what felt like miles to American Dream Comics to pick these up. I loved the film The Book of Life and especially love day of the dead anyway so these seemed like a good choice. I already have Penny (the governors daughter) from The Walking Dead. You can also check out the Pop Shop raffles on Facebook which is a great way to up your collection.
I couldn’t walk past the Lush shop without purchasing something yummy smelling! I get very dry lips so thought a lip scrub could sort that out and everyone keeps raving about bath bombs but after losing my sense of smell trying to choose I went for a fruity berry bubble bar.
Popped into Superdrug as they have the serum I love half price – I use this before I moisturise as I suffer from dry skin on my face too. I have been buying the odd item of MUA products to test them out and actually bought the Velvet Lip Laquer in the colour Kooky which isn’t pictured and I love it on. The eyeshadows I haven’t played with yet but will keep you updated.
Paperchase is a must visit shop for stationary lovers, even just browsing is a good fix! I was good and just bought some cards in the sale. I love the pango cards which glow in the dark and thought they’d be fab to give for kids birthday cards.
Naughtily we were tempted into the gorgeous smelling Fudge Kitchen and bought 4 slices – Sea Salted Caramel, Maple & Walnut, Butterscotch and After Diner Mint which are sooooooo tasty and we sampled each one including snickers which was equally yummy.
Primark has to be done and although it was a smaller store that what we have in Bristol I still managed to find some bits. The throw was reduced from £4.50, I bought the lights because I want to make my own fairy lights to hang in the conservatory which I will share when done, Flip flops for when it gets too hot to keep wearing boots and a cute little handbag for my little lady. I did also buy some black high waisted jeans for £13 which I wore whilst away!
On the way home we sneakily detoured to Hobbycraft which is actually in Bristol for me to pick up a blank journal and some Copics in preparation for my skin and hair course that I have purchased from Kit and Clowder which I have been eying up for some time and can’t wait to start.
We ate a lot of food whilst away and I loved every bit! We visited The Crystal Palace Pub the first evening and I had a Chalcroft Farm Beef Burger and Chips with a Salted Caramel and Chocolate Tart with Ice Cream which was very reasonably priced and a lovely pub. Then we visited The Gin Bar which was dark, noisy and cool! I’m not a gin lover so went for a vodka and pink lemonade which tasted like rose turkish delight!
The following evening we dined at Martini, a traditional authentic Italian restaurant with a great atmosphere that I throughly recommend – I choseTagliatelle pasta with goats cheese and roasted vegetables which had a lovely Italian name that I don’t remember and was a special that I can’t look up and then the most amazing desert ever!!!! Tartufo Amaretto, an amaretto core covered with vanilla gelato rolled in crushed amaretto biscotti – you must go try it!!! Then we did briefly visit a very popular cocktail bar The Porters Cocktail bar but it was so packed we decided to go elsewhere and wandered round and ended up in a Irish Bar called Molloy’s that was full of hens so we decided we wanted to dance and walked miles again (past the comic book shop in fact!) to get the Bath’s biggest club Club XL for some cheesy dancing to 80’s & 90’s music until 2am.
Last indulgence of the weekend was 3 course lunch at the Hilton. Pate salad to start, yummy pork roast and Chocolate fudge cake for desert and then we were stuffed and ready to walk back through the high street and head home.
Lovely weekend with lovely company, definitely recommend taking a visit Let me know if you visit or have visited and what you loved…
