Wear. Life. Eats.

It's been a while hasn't it...I've been a little AWOL this month on the blog purely because I've been in Birmingham this week, well a little further outside of Birmingham near Kingswinford. Holla if you're from those neck of the woods! I thought I'd share some of the highlights of my week and where I've been so I thought why not do a Wear. Life. Eats. post!

During the four days I was playing tourist, I managed to visit Cadbury's World, West Midlands Safari Park, Akbars Restaurant, Argeela Shisha Lounge, Bullring Shopping Centre and a few other restaurants but I really do not need to highlight my trip to Nandos lol...

It was actually my first time visiting Cadbury's World, I know what you're thinking. For a girl who eats chocolate for breakfast, how on earth have I only visited the world of chocolate at the age of 24?! I was pretty disappointed as I had high expectations, hoping it would be like Charlie & The Chocolate Factory but I guess it's more for kids. They allow you to roam around and explore the history of chocolate, go on a ride and visit a 4d cinema for £15. Not forgetting they give you x3 free bars of chocolate and access to the chocolate shops where you can buy Cadbury branded chocolate slightly cheaper than the supermarket. Would I go again? No, unless I'm taking a really young child, which I was if you're wondering why I went there!

West Midlands Safari Park was fab! It's an open safari which allows you drive around with animals everywhere! From tigers to lions to leopards to elephants and so on! It was a pretty cool experience and you almost feel like you're in South Africa minus the heat. The park also has lots of different experiences, I went into a room full of bats flying over our head and got to see my faves - meerkats! Overall, definitely recommended you visit this place 

Went to a lovely Asian restaurant called Akbar's which does amazing food and literally the decor was so beautiful. They're standard size naan is a giant naan which comes on it's own stand! Everywhere I go, I find a shisha lounge! I mean I even found one in Santorini which is a tiny island! I went to Argeela Shisha Lounge & Grill which is around 10 minutes away from the Bull Ring. Stunning shisha lounge, I don't think there is one in London to match up to Argeela. Service was good, decor amazing, shisha was amazing and mega cheap compared to London prices. Music was spot on, literally I would easily drive up to Argeela on the weekends as it ticked all the right boxes!

Also visited the Bull Ring Shopping Centre for the very first time. In all the times I've been to Bham, I've never actually been to the Bull Ring! I don't normally talk about shopping centres randomly, but they had a Selfridges beauty floor which had every makeup brand I possibly use! A long day shopping requires some much deserved drinks so I also popped down to Marco Pierre White's Rooftop Champagne Bar which was stunning. Drinks were pretty good and it was just perfect as the weather was so good!

I'm heading back to Bham in December, so if you have any recommendations on restaurants/bars/shisha lounges or even shopping centres please let me know in the comments below!

Hope you enjoyed my first Wear. Life. Eats. post!
