Texture Restaurant Review

texture-restaurant-review

Boo!

I hope you are all well! It's been quite a while... I'm so sorry for the complete absence! I've just been settling into a new job but fingers crossed I'll be back on the blogging scene! Massive belated Happy New Year to all my lovely readers!

As I'm slowly easing back into blogging I thought I would share my all time favourite restaurant,  Texture, and just in time for Valentine's Day!

If you have read any of my earlier posts you may actually recognise this restaurant, as I did blog about it quite a few years back. As I enjoy going to this restaurant so much the first time, going back the second time really was scary. Scary in the sense that it wouldn't meet the high expectations it had created the first time I went. My goodness though, how my expectations were completely met and in many ways exceeded! 

Little extras were still thrown in, in addition to what you ordered from the menu. The flavours were just on point and an explosion of new taste sensations! But on top of that, the staff were so attentive and knowledgeable. I've been lucky enough to try a few Michillin star restaurants (all thanks to deals that these restaurants do) but this really is the one where I feel they deserve more stars!

Although this place would be incredible to take someone to on Valentine's Day, I actually think it would be better for another time, especially at lunch. I know I've only experienced their lunch menu/ambience but I really can't think of anything more perfect and enjoyable.  For both times I went around 12-12.30 when it wasn't actually that busy, and it was really lovely because you did get fantastic service and felt as though you were in your own little bubble. It normally does get busier later on into the afternoon, and  (whenever I pass it) it is really busy in the evening. 

I just can't give enough praise to this restaurant and would highly recommend it. We usually go for their set menu as it is such good value for money. I mean £27.90/£32.90 (this has slightly increased since the time I posted the pictures below) is a lot of money, but the experience you get, added extras and delicious food makes it just so special. If you are thinking of a special place to take someone and want to taste flavours would never expect, I would definitely put this on your list. 

Below are just some photos from our meal:

M&Co Style Challenge | Petite Flapper Dress*

Boo!

When I was asked to take part in M&Co's style challenge with this gorgeous flapper dress, all I could feel was excited about being able to recreate an outfit from one of my favourite films, the Great Gatsby. Also, any brand that has a petite section always gets a big thumbs up from me, so for those who weren't aware of this, do check out M&Co's Petite Section!

I just love how fun flapper dresses are. Don't you just want to shake around when you've got one on? I didn't want to accessorise this dress too much because let's be honest, the fringing and gorgeously embellished neckline do all the talking! But no flapper dress outfit is complete without some pearls. Although the flapper dress would have looked great at it's usual length, for my own frame, I thought it would be more flattering to shorten the dress a little bit by adding a belt. The great thing about the fringe is that it hides the belt rather well. With the party season coming up this is a fab addition to your wardrobe, and is an easy yet subtle way in making a bold fashion statement.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I know I enjoyed styling and twisting in this dress. Are you a fan of the 1920s style?

The Fifth Watches - Rose Gold & Peach

Boo!

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! This week I am sharing a little something I treated myself to a couple of months ago but have only just had the time to post about it. I'm not usually a big wearer of accessories but I do love simple stylish pieces. As soon as I saw my friend wearing this watch I instantly fell in love. I love the feminine colours and the simplicity of the design.

The Fifth Watches Rose Gold and Peach Review

The Fifth Watches have quite an interesting business concept. Their watches are sold on the 5th of every month and are only available for sale for five days. Although I paid a little bit more than I usually would have liked to (~£80) as I am such a bargain lover:p I definitely think this purchase was worth the money, especially seeing as though I needed a new watch. Or may I am just making excuses to justify it haha. In any case I am so so glad I bought this new time piece. It's a perfect addition to any outfit and just so beautiful I can't stop looking at it! At first I was worried that it would look to big on my wrist because I have quite little arms/hands/wrists but I don't think it looks too bad. And yes, the first time I wore this watch (as shown in the picture above) I did leave the plastic on the watch as I was worried I would scatch it:p 

Here are a couple of the stats for this rose gold watch: 316L Stainless Steel Bezel, Hardened Mineral Crystal Lens, Japanese Quartz Movement, Water Resistant 5ATM, Face Diameter 43.0mm & Case Thickness 7.8mm. 

I hope you guys liked reading this post! Are you a big watch wearer? What is your favourite accessory?

Take care, speak soon and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
