Festive trip to Bristol

Hey guys,

So a couple of weekends ago me and my boyfriend took a little trip to Bristol for a visit. 

We just stayed in a little premier inn, which I actually loved because it was cheap, and right in the middle of the town which was perfect really. 

 I chose to wear my little denim dress which I love, from primark, teamed with my tartan scarf also a primark bargain for £5. Then I studded topshop necklace, tights and boots. I also straightened my hair which is kind of rare for me as I prefer my hair naturally wavy and with a bit more volume. 

We grabbed some lunch at Bella Italia and just looked around the shops and such. I love going to visit different places just to have a look around at all the different shops. Bristol is pretty good for shopping too. We mainly stayed in Cabot Circus where they have most of the high street shops. We managed to also meet my friend and I had a delicious Christmas costa, a white hot chocolate which was lovely and we also grabbed a festive Krispy Kreme. 

We then checked into our hotel, here is a picture of our Christmas jumpers we got ready for the holidays. EXCITING!!! The Christmas pudding one actually plays a musical tune, again these were both from primark which is absolutely massive in Bristol!! 

In the evening we went to the Bristol student union to watch Crystal Fighters who we both love and they were amazing. Although a bit weird as one of them did have his top off.
If you haven't listened to them before I really recommend you to go check them out. They play pretty chilled songs but at the same time they make you want to get up and dance. 

We then went back to the lovely and festive decorated premier inn, couldn't resist a picture by the tree!!!

Next day we got up (not so early) and strolled into town for some lunch/late late breakfast. We found a little cafe and had some baguettes.
 We then did the usual stroll through the town etc and took a look at the Christmas market. German markets always make me feel so warm and Christmassy as they look so cute.

Later on we went to the cinema where we saw Saving Mr Banks, although we were the youngest in the cinema by miles it was such a lovely film about the story behind Mary Poppins. I honestly thought it was amazing and really can't wait for it to be out on DVD.

After that we just grabbed a GBK, yum and again had a walk around the shops with all the pretty lights before we both headed home. It was a super lovely two days and pretty cheap as well so well worth going :). 

Oh and we also had these yummy yummy Christmas drinks. They were caramel hot chocolates with gingerbread and whipped cream, mmmmmmm.

Love love
