What a lovely weekend we just had, filled with much needed pampering and fine dining, just the way I like it ;)
My usual weekends start slowly with a bit of a sleep in before tackling the inevitable household chores, but this particular Saturday was a little different, starting with an early morning trip to the hair salon! I decided I was sick of my old look and wanted something different both colour and cut-wise. So I went from a light blonde, long layered cut to a honey blonde, angled bob (kinda like a cross between Victoria Beckham's crop and Jen Aniston's new 'do)...
Then it was time for our much anticipated Saturday night dinner and I got to debut my brand new haircut when the Mr and I headed out to Prohibition Restaurant! We had a great night soaking up the 1920s vibe and enjoying the live jazz.
We even ended up ordering almost exactly the same meal (which never happens!) we both had the Cured Salmon to start (house cured Akaroa salmon with pickled vegetables served with dill sour cream - lovely and refreshing!) then we both went for the Beef Eye Fillet (with boulangerie potato, spinach and Wellington pastry - the eye fillet was incredible and I'm not normally a steak kind of girl!). We were so full by then that it was hard to choose between all the lovely desserts but I was determined to try one of them so went for the Apple Tarte Tatin (traditional apple tatin served with creme fraiche, cinnamon ice cream, spun sugar and caramel sauce - OMG that was delicious!) while the Mr had a selection of ice creams and sorbets. We finished off our meal with two great coffees and definitely felt like we needed a lie down after all the food!
