We’re only a few days into 2017 but I am already excited for the upcoming months as I already have a number of fun plans pencilled in, including blog events, birthday nights out, hotel stays, holidays and the major development of this year being the year I should be moving out.
On Tuesday I went for dinner with the family to this cute little restaurant called L’ulivo which is located down the side of Charing Cross station, on the walk down to Embankment Underground. It’s an Italian restaurant and I had the most amazing Lobster pasta starter, which I could have happily had for every course, and followed it with a Lamb Shank in a honey and red wine jus with mash. We then went to see Kinky Boots at The Adelphi Theatre, and oh my god it was incredible. They were given a well rewarded standing ovation and I would literally go again tomorrow, if you are considering seeing the show you really should, this year has already started better than last year that’s for sure.
Also this month I have my friend’s 30th, which is a superhero themed night out, and I will be staying with her for the weekend. I am so excited to see her because, and I can’t even believe this but I haven’t seen her in about 2 years. I also love fancy dress and can’t even remember the last time I did fancy dress apart from on Halloween so it’s going to be an amazing weekend, I just need to find an outfit. Additionally I have my first blog event of the year on the 14th, my Dad’s birthday and as soon as I’m well enough I will be getting back to the gym.
February is looking to be quite a busy month for me with a really random selection of plans already made. I am starting the month with my Christmas present from George, we are going to a Crystal Palace football game. Another one of my Christmas presents, this one from the fam, was two tickets to The Lily Foundation Charity Comedy night, where Amy and I will be seeing Seann Walsh, Romesh Ranganathan, Joe Pasquale and Jon Richardson. I’m most excited about Romesh but it’s a great line up all round. The whole family is going to Harry Potter and The Cursed Child which my Mum got us all tickets for last Christmas as my sister and my stepdad are big fans. And finally I am going to the Big Easy again, this time with Aaron and Abi, for the Unlimited Boozy Brunch, two hours of unlimited prosecco with either a lobster dish or the Big Pig Gig.
March is looking like a hotel month for me with a trip to Maidstone with Amy, her boyfriend and George, currently in planning, and a Travelodge already booked for Lauren’s birthday where I will be reuniting with a bunch of my lovely blogger friends. As I still live at home I love breaking up nights out by staying in a hotel on them, the getting ready and pre drinking together with everyone fighting over what to play on the speaker that hopefully someone remembered, and the bonus of not worrying about waking anyone up at stupid o’clock when you get home.
My holidays for the year are practically planned and paid for. I don’t usually go away with the family anymore unless it’s for a big birthday or special occasion, but when they told me their plan for this year I had to crash. In August we are going away for two weeks; the first to Orlando, who doesn’t want to go to Disney and we will be there on my birthday. Then it’s on to a cruise around the Bahamas, which includes a stop at THE ATLANTIS HOTEL, it has been my dream for years, around 15 years to be exact after falling in love with it on the Mary Kate and Ashley film Holiday In The Sun. I am also going to Greece and Magaluf, shock I know, for a week with Amy at some point in July, she is going on an island hop holiday with multiple people so I can’t actually remember exactly when this is planned for but I believe we are paying for it in a few weeks.
And as I mentioned above this year is the year I plan to move out. Yes I have just told you about all these plans I have already made for the year BUT alongside that I will be saving anything I can so that come mid year I can start looking at flats to move out with Abi, fellow blogger and friend of around 10 years. Obviously these are not my only plans for the entire year but I love having things to look forward to and I am feeling positive about this being a good year. You will definitely be seeing loads more from the #twoportugueseagingerandasmurf hashtag this year! I want to be with those who make me smile, laugh as much as I breathe, live life to the fullest, make the most of what I have, give everything and have no regrets. You only live once but if you do it right, once is enough!
