A Weekend With Christaabelle

Last Friday it was time to pick up fellow beauty and lifestyle blogger Christie from the train station, and let our long awaited girlie weekend begin! 

Once I'd picked Christie up and heard all about the dribbling guy sat next to her on the train journey over, it was time to head to the supermarket to stock up on every fattening food there is, Ben & Jerrys, Doritos, M&M's and so much more unhealthiness. 

Once we'd had a few odd looks from the cashier we decided to go all out and head for McDonald's, little did we know it would turn into a twenty-mile journey trying to find one that wasn't closed for refurbishment, so that we could satisfy our need of chicken nuggets and all the fries. Friday evening pretty much involved us eating our own weight in junk food, watching the Olympics and planning our next day!

Saturday we headed over to Huddersfield with the hope that Christie could see her new bed in the showroom, you can probably guess that this didn't go quite to plan... 

Our hour and a half journey over there consisted of some of the most confusing traffic lights ever, a sat nav that thought it was hilarious to stop giving you directions in the middle of nowhere, oh and the best part, take you down cobbled roads which probably caused more damage to Fiona the Fiat 500, than the bed cost. The icing on the cake was when we arrived and was greeted by a woman who let us know that "we stopped stocking that bed a month ago, sorrrrryyyy." I don't think Christie was overly happy!

Following the eventful morning, we headed for Leeds for some retail therapy! Christie had let me test out some of her makeup that I hadn't tried before which resulted in me falling in love with it, buying it all for myself and becoming extremely poor once again! Both of us are going to do a joint shopping haul post, so you'll be able to see what we splurged on later this week!
Saturday night we went out for an Italian at once of my favourite restaurants, Boccaccio in Wakefield. If you're from anywhere near this area you have to try this place at least once, the food is heavenly and the staff are all Italian! They also have the most amazing marble tables, perfect for blog photography, but let's be honest you're not going to take your August favourites and quickly whip them out for a flat lay, are you?

I had the garlic bread for starters, a Margherita pizza for main and the most amazing chocolate fudge cake for desert. Christie had mozzarella in breadcrumbs for starter, chicken and bacon risotto for main and orange sorbet for desert, it looked delicious!

After our meal we decided to go bowling, not the greatest idea after three courses I'll admit, but it was brilliant and so much fun! Followed by several games of air hockey until we couldn't take anymore! Following this came the highlight of our evening when we spotted the slush puppy stand, I don't even care if that's childish haha, both me and Christie were sat at a bar ordering a £1.50 slush puppy and having the time of our lives, NO SHAME.

On Sunday we headed to Yorkshire Wildlife Park, where we spent the day walking around with wallabies and the cutest monkeys! We took so many photos so again, a post all about the park will follow later this week!

I had such a brilliant weekend with Christie and cannot wait for next time! Keep an eye out for the rest of our weekend posts to follow!
