All Dressed Up

These photos are from my mum's birthday meal. My parents and I went to a Chinese buffet that we were really curious to try out. I'm not usually a fan of Chinese food but this place was AMAZING. I couldn't resist taking some pictures of the food, especially as my new camera has a "food mode".

This was the first time I've really made an effort in getting "dressed up" for quite a while so it was fun to do something with my hair (I just curled it in big sections with tongs, sprayed the curls, left them to cool and then backbrushed like crazy!) and wear a dress from the "nice" section of my wardrobe.



Dress: Alice Temperly for Target
Tights: Primark
Earings: Accessorize

And here are my foodie pictures. It was all delicious and even though I really wanted to eat more I was so, so full. I fail at buffets so much!


How cute is the mini Battenburg cake?

Do you like getting dressed up? And what's your favourite restaurant? I'm usually a Wagamama girl :)
