Hi everyone, how are you all? I have been super busy so far this week and once again the time seems to have flown by. I went to see my family at the weekend, and it was nice to catch up and spend quality time with them, chatting, walking the dog and eating Chinese food as usual!
I also went to the cinema and out for a scrumptious Thai dinner recently too, which was lovely. Those are the moments I treasure so much in life, going out for dinner and seeing friends...it just makes me so happy and that is what I have been trying to do lately, in order to appreciate more how blessed I really am, I look at all the good and joyful things in my life and then try to do more of them.
Clothing wise, I am still resisting the fact that the new season is upon us. I fear that it will be too cold for bare legs soon, but for now I am still getting away with it, and of course relying on good old Dove Summer Glow so that my legs look a little bit tanned. Seriously, that is a product I just adore. I have been loving this white duster coat from Primark again lately, I love how fresh and crisp it looks paired with an all black outfit. Here is what I wore one day this week to have lunch with a friend who I had not seen in a while:

Last night I went to a free preview screening of 'The Maze Runner' at Vue Cinema in Cheshire Oaks. We got the tickets via Heat magazine, so look out every Tuesday when the magazine comes out as it often has the offer for free cinema tickets inside. One tip I would suggest is to buy the magazine as soon as possible on Tuesday and go to the website for free tickets, as the tickets soon disappear. The film itself was excellent, exciting and moving with great performances and excellent effects. I didn't want the film to end it was so good, and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.
Ever since I have lived in the Liverpool area (about 8 years now) I have gone to an amazing Thai restaurant called The Chill Pot on North John Street in Liverpool City Centre (formerly called Sabai). I can honestly say that it is hands down my favourite restaurant ever, the food is just mouth wateringly sublime and it never disappoints. The prices are good too, for food of such an amazing standard. It just blows the competition out of the water, and I have never walked away feeling less than delighted. Last week, I decided it was high time to have dinner there after not having been for a while. We started with Chicken Satay and Vegetable Spring Rolls followed by the amazing main courses. My dining companion had a Thai beef dish and I had my all time favourite meal, Mango Gai. This is strips of chicken breast coated in the lightest batter and fried, then served in the most mouth-watering mango sauce. I honestly cannot describe how this tastes, it is just the best thing I have ever eaten. I always have it with Coconut Rice too, a sticky rice cooked in coconut milk. For dessert we had chocolate cake with coconut ice cream. It was a perfect meal.
All round it is just a wonderful restaurant. If you are ever in Liverpool, this is the place to go for Thai food, it is a well kept secret and the food and service are both impeccable. The interior of the restaurant is simple and modern, with decorative touches of the far east such as golden statues, floating flowers and Buddhas. They also offer an amazing two course lunch for £8.95 and an early evening dinner two course menu for £11.95. Both the lunch and dinner set menus include a drink in the price too.
