Food: Coast to Coast, Birmingham

Last week I was invited along to Coast to Coast's VIP evening. Coast to Coast on Broad Street offers a selection of american dishes such as burgers, steaks, pizza, pasta and more. I have literally no idea why I have never been to this restaurant before as it sounds like my ideal place. 
Please excuse some of the photo's been slightly blurry, the lighting didn't agree with my camera. Let's get on with the post! 
On Thursday night, Alex and I headed to Coast to Coast and after eyeing up the menu we had starved ourselves in preparation! 
On arrival we were greeted at the door and took to our seats immediately. Our server was a guy named Scott who was from the Leicester brand, he was amazing all night and so helpful! The restaurant reminded me of like Hard Rock Cafe, there was great music playing and they also televised sports games.
To start off we ordered drinks, I got super yummy mocktail called the New Yorker which was an Apple and Lime juice and Alex got a beer. As a starter we got cheddar cheese and bacon loaded skins which I have been obsessed with recently, they were amazing but I wish there was a couple more as we were sharing.
 As we were in an American restaurant we had to get burgers, there was so many choices and they all sounded incredible. I chose a Chicken and Cheese Burger which I cheekily asked to have bacon on it too! Alex ordered the Buffalo Blue burger which he dubbed as 'one of the best meals he's had in Birmingham'. Alex is into quite hot food and this burger came with hot sauce and also a hot tomato sauce on the side. The food was really good and huge portions - I really struggled.

As much as their amazing dessert menu looked appealing, I was completely stuffed! Alex and I decided to order more drinks instead, we got a Tequila Sunrise and a coca cola ice cream float! We ended up sharing them between us, they were both delicious. I do love it when you can get Ice Cream floats as it's something different! The photo below was right before it foamed up and went everywhere!
Thanks to Coast to Coast for inviting us, I will defiantly be back!

Ladies Day at Cheltenham Races

If you've been following me on Social Media you'll know that I went to Ladies Day at Cheltenham Races with my friend Becca! This was my first time at the races in Cheltenham and we were both really excited as so many people we're raving about it. As soon as we arrived at the train station everywhere was filled with racegoers. 
I've also never been to Cheltenham and I sort of want to live there, It's a beautiful place and I'm definitely going to go back for a little visit!
As usual I ended up wearing a totally different outfit to what I had planned in this post. I always end up changing my mind last minute! I decided on my Topshop striped dress and my faux fur jacket from Miss Selfridge as it was quite chilly! Becca wore a dress from Boohoo and a pink leather jacket, we entered both looks for the #ColourMeMarch best dressed competition but unfortunately didn't win! Becca kindly did my hair in this amazing side braid, I think it's the nicest my hair has ever been!
We arrived at the racecourse and the whole place was huge. The biggest racecourse I've been to, It was incredible! Of course the first place we headed to was the bar for a glass of vino - Stay classy girls! 
The day was thoroughly lovely, we did place some cheeky bets and did really well. I came home with the same amount that I left with! I'd completely recommend going to the races at Cheltenham if you haven't before, the atmosphere is amazing and it's just a fabulous day out!
A big thanks to etailPR who organised the day and provided us with amazing club class tickets! I had the best day! I wish I'd took more photo's but we were just enjoying the day.
Have you ever been to the races? What did you think?

Staying in is the new going out!

Sometimes all you need is the comforts of you own home. My Voucher Codes recently conducted some research which shows people are now spending more time at home in order to save a bit of cash, You can read more here.
 Whilst I do love dining out and doing a spot of shopping, I am basically addicted to watching movies and TV shows on Netflix whilst in my PJs! I've just finished watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt which was rather funny but Pretty Little Liars is my fave! (Who's excited for the season finale on Wednesday?!)
There's so many ways that staying in can save you money, I know I spend quite a lot of money on eating out (In my defense, I don't have an oven - Don't ask!) but limiting that to a couple of times a month would save me so much money. 
I think the statements true, especially for my generation when money is important. I sometimes feel like a granny staying in, I'm not much of a partier either but I've asked around and so many people would rather just stay in and have a few drinks amongst friends. 

What do you think? Is staying in the new going out?
What would you prefer?

Don't forget I have a giveaway going on where you could win a hair appliance of your choice from the Vidal Sassoon Infra Radiance collection? Enter here!
