Last night was date night! One of my New Year's resolutions is committing to one date night a week & sticking to it! I think it's really important for a healthy marriage and happy relationship! Also it gives you something to look forward to, gets you out of the house, gives you a break from the kids and makes you appreciate each other more! I know it sounds cheesy but it's true! For our first of the year we actually did a double date with our friends Adam & Sabrina. I wore my light grey 7 for All Mankind jeans (bought in the sales!) along with my Ted Baker over-the-knee boots, black Suncoo polo neck and YSL tassel clutch bag.
We went to Novikov in London and ate at the Asian side of the restaurant (I've been to the Italian part before but had never tried this one). At first I had no idea what to expect as the menu was pretty overwhelming and HUGE! Especially because I'm not used to eating most of the stuff we ordered! But we let Adam pick everything for us as he's the sushi expert. We basically got a variety of different things to share including raw salmon & tuna, prawn tempura, black cod, chicken & fish dim sum, vegetable noodles and lots more. It was SO good! To finish off I had the blueberry & pear cake with cinnamon ice-cream which was amazing...anything cinnamon flavoured and I'm in love!
We had such a lovely night out and it was good to do something different and try food we wouldn't normally get! I feel so lucky & blessed to have met such good friends that both Jonathan & I get on with so well. It's tough moving to a new country where you virtually know nobody, especially as a young family. So when we meet people who are on the same wave-length and have similar interests & goals it's something really special & I appreciate it so much! (You can check out Sabrina's blogs here & here.)
Today's video is a Winter Sales Haul where I show what I got in the January online sales...some of these are really good deals so I've linked everything in the description box if you're interested in what I got! Hope you enjoy :)
