(Top & Skirt: C/O Lashes of London, Unusually thick lashes: Katy Perry)

In conjunction with Westfield's Food Explorer Month, Joe and I were invited to celebrate an occasion at their amazing shopping centre- and what better opportunity to celebrate and get all lovey dovey (I promise this is not a soppy post) than Valentine's Day itself! We opted to head to our favouriteAll Star Lanes which could only mean a competitive bowling session after a pretty slap up meal (a.k.a not pacing myself with the delicious flat bread and having little room for burgers and shakes -how VERY wild of me). In all seriousness, the food was seriously good- and pretty damn well priced. IMG_9943p IMG_9944p IMG_9961p IMG_9971p IMG_9972p IMG_9975p
We opted for bread-based starters in the form of garlic bread and guacamole and artichoke flat bread (so good) followed by ribs for Joe, and a chicken burger for me (and an abundance of milkshakes and fantastic fries)- leaving the pair of us incredibly full, and slightly worried about the bowling game around the corner (in hindsight, we should have probably done everything the other way round...) But fear not wonderful readers! My occasional greediness and full stomach didn't completely hinder my performance and I amazingly managed to score a couple of strikes (without the barriers up)- with Joe only narrowly coming out tops (by just a few points. I promise. Only a few. Maybe. Not quite.) IMG_9976p IMG_9993p IMG_0057p IMG_0050p
Overall, it was the perfect way to spend an evening together and meant we got to have a bit of a date-night as well as a laugh together (or laugh at me)- which is always lovely and made me feel like one very lucky lady (okay, maybe a bit soppy).
