Girls Night Out

This weekend it was one of my best friends birthdays, so to celebrate we headed down to Brighton for the day. It was a fleeting visit but we managed to squeeze in lunch at Meat Liquor and grab a box of Bens Cookies before we left! 

I have been to Meat Mission in Hoxton, which is the sister restaurant to Meat Liquor and although the menus are pretty much identical, I have to say I preferred Hoxton. The Hoxton Meat Mission is inside a converted church and the stained glass interior is awesome. If you love a good burger its definitely one to try.

After Brighton we headed back to get ready for our night out. Am I the only one that thinks the getting ready part is sometimes more fun than the actual night out itself?! Back in the day I remember visiting our friends at Uni and we would spend hours getting ready, listening to terrible music, playing Singstar and drinking far too much. We have tamed a bit with age though and the getting ready process is a much more civilised affair these days.

Last year on my blog I shared my love of snooping in other peoples makeup bags. My post on what was inside Chloe and Chefs makeup bag was one of my favourites, so I thought I would take a few sneaky shots of what makeup they wear on a night out.


Chloe is the most experimental when it comes to her makeup and when she finishes something, she tends to always try something new. Chloe has the best edited lipstick collection, its small but there is a colour for every occasion. Next time I'm in America I want to try the Ardency Inn Boom Base, its a lip base but Chloe has been raving about it and has well and truly sold it to me!

The birthday girl! Chefs makeup tastes are a combination of Chloe and Sops. She can be quite experimental but is quite particular. Once she finds a product she loves, it stays (like her No7 foundation which she has used for years). We are both massive fans of the Urban Decay setting sprays and Chef has recently bought their Prep Spray, which I am intrigued to try myself!

Out of everyone, Sop gets ready the quickest. I always panic when I'm still applying my foundation and she already has her false lashes on! Sop doesn't wear foundation, just concealer and definitely uses the least products out of all us (a natural beauty). She knows what she likes and sticks to it, she also has no patience when it comes to applying makeup but don't tell her I said that!

In the mad getting ready rush I didn't actually photograph my own makeup, but I have a post that will be up tomorrow to rectify that! Here is one photo I did get of the toilets, nice.

The next day was spent indulging in our guilty pleasure, Keeping up with the Kardashians and attacking the aforementioned Bens Cookie Box!
