WISHLIST: In summer!

Summer 2018 wishlist

The urge to spend money is real right now, which I blame on the sun gracing us with its presence, even if it is f-f-f-freezing. I've booked my holidays (yes! Plural!) for the year now and I want to plan my summer wardrobe nowww. Alarmingly, I'm seriously considering adding trousers to my summer wardrobe as I've been practising in jeans for a few months now. It's new, and it's scary, but I'm kind of into this whole ankle grazer look that the cool kids have been rocking.

Anyway, this is what I'm planning to wear this summer, if we get any sunshine at all. Breton tops and ankle grazers with Converse or ballet pumps and preppy dresses with sandals or wedges... I am here for you, warmth.

When Matt and I started dating, he immediately got a free pass to all the food reviews I did for the blog. He was pretty happy, but my friends and family were a wee bit put out. These days, I try to share them out - I usually do the local ones with Matt, but tie in the London ones with seeing a London-based pal instead. However, when Wagamama asked me if I wanted to pop along and review the St Albans branch, I decided to break my rules and take my Mum along instead.

It was just before Christmas, so it felt like a nice time to do a treaty meal out. Obviously, I've been to Wagamama countless times, but going for my blog felt rather more exciting. Sure, people stared at me as I took photos of our meals with my giant obnoxious camera while my Mum said proudly, 'It's for a blog! Our meal is free!' (Muuuum...) but it also meant an excuse to order something exciting off the menu and go ALL IN on the sides, rather than my usual go-to of Ginger Chicken Udon and edamame beans.

Sidenote: There was a Buzzfeed quiz recently where it asked what your favourite Wagamama order was, and Ginger Chicken Udon WASN'T ON IT. I know there's a lot of Katsu fans out there (sorry, I just don't really like it) and that's cool, but the amount of times I've been to Wagas and we've all ordered Ginger Chicken Udon. It is a classic, and it deserves respect. And if you've never ordered it, YOU SHOULD.
