New Beginnings - When Life Gives You Lemons...

...Make Lemonade!

Lately I have had the urge to put myself back into the blogosphere. I took a break for a long time because I just wasn’t enjoying it. I think this mainly stems from my lack of enthusiasm with makeup and beauty as of late. But i’ve realised that I really don’t have to blog about makeup at all, I have a lot more to say & a lot more in my life than makeup and worrying about which collections are coming out this month and so on... So ‘A Girl Writes...’ is more of a welcome to my world, an online diary if you will, that i’ve decided to put out into the virtual kingdom. 
Tonight I went on a ‘date’ with one of my bestie’s Emily, she asked me out to dinner to say thank you for buying our Grand Ole Opry tickets in September. We went to McKees Brasserie in Balsall Common. They have really lovely food and give you an amuse bouche to start and little petit fours with your coffee which make all the difference. These little extras make you feel special, or that you’re getting more than you paid for. They have a different menu every month and there is a set price of £19.95 for 3 courses (plus coffee - as a coffee addict I must get that in!) I took my camera with intention of taking loads of pictures of the food, yet Emily remimded me when our dessert came that I hadn’t taken any pictures. Lol! I did get some good ones after that though!

I thought the food was lovely, except the lemon tart petit fours at the end. They weren’t that tasty at all. But I did have a lovely time with Emily, It was very nice to catch up over dinner.
Tomorrow i’m going to see 'Love and Other Drugs', i've been dying to watch this since I first saw the trailer. I'm hoping it lives up to my expectations. The last film I saw at the cinema was 'Burlesque', which definitely didn't live up to expectations! I think it's best put as UTTER RUBBISH! 

I've got a few more blog posts up my sleeve and will get them up this weekend!

Thank you all for sticking with me during my mid-blog-crisis!
