Date G – Mini Golf

For date G I took Ash to mini golf, but not just any mini golf, this was dinosaur mini golf! 

What I Wore

I went summery with a pretty green, sparkly dress, sandals and a light shirt.

The Date

We started by walking through Richmond Park, one of my favourite places in the whole of London, before catching a bus to the Golf. I’ve missed our walks and it was just really nice to just be together strolling along and talking about nonsense.

We saw a lot of bunnies which we’re out enjoying the sunshine, but we didn’t see any deer for once. They must have been at the other side of the park.

Relaxing in Richmond Park

Eventually we had to drag ourselves away and actually go golfing. The place itself took a while for us to find the way to and involved quite a bit of walking.

The actual golf was great! The decorations we’re brilliant with dinosaurs towering above you, a bright blue river running throughout the whole course and some great dinosaur facts to read whilst you played.

One of my many misses.

We we’re both terrible at playing, especially myself who seems to have a problem with aim, the problem being I don’t even try to.

Throughout the course they were playing the most terrible cheesy music, such as the YMCA. I was kind of disappointed by the music as I think it detracted from the feel of the course, although I guess kids coming to play might have enjoyed it. I would have much preferred some Jurassic park-esq music, the kind of music that would make you feel epic as you played.

 

Final Thoughts

I think it was a great date personally, we both laughed at each others terrible skills, the theme of the golf course made it all so much more exciting and, even though the music was terrible and a little annoying, we got to laugh at the tunes being played. All together i think it was a great place to take a date, wether it’s the first or you’ve been together for a long time.

Dress to Scare

So as the Halloween season is approaching some of you may be wanting to find awesome costumes to wear out, or even add a touch of the scary to your everyday clothing. Here’s some of my favourite little halloween accessories i’ve found on Etsy.

You can find the treasury here

Under Wraps Octopus Necklace

I’ve been a fan of this shop for a while. These octopus necklaces just look so awesome! If you want to dress up as an evil mermaid or maybe poseidon then this is obviously the perfect accessory for you.

Ceramic cat necklace 

If a witch is your choice of outfit and you don’t own a black cat, why not wear this cute little necklace! This would be brilliant for halloween as well as a cute accessory all year round, especially if you’re a cat lover.

Bat Brooch

These brooches are just the cutest! The perfect halloween touch to any outfit. I think these would look awesome on a big winter coat, and would be a good accessory for any vampires this year.

Simon the black bat

Another bat but this time in necklace form. Again another perfect item for the vampires amongst you, or just an adorable necklace for those who like bats.

Pumpkin baby hat

This cute little newborn pumpkin hat is great for the families who like to get everyone involved as well as keeping the little ones nice and warm!

Halloween Gold Skull Shoe Clips

If you’re like me and have far too many shoes but want some special Halloween footwear then why not invest in some shoe clips! They wont take up as much room and can completely transform any shoes. These ones just shout ‘halloween’ with their cute skull designs and can come in 3 different colours!

Silk Skull Bowtie

If you’re a guy who likes to look smart but still wants to get into the halloween spirit then this bowtie would be perfect! I could see it being part of a skeleton/undertaker costume and it’s bound to impress at parties.

Bat Cuff Links

Another one for the well dressed man. These bat cufflinks are bound to add a touch of the scary to any suit. It’s the little details that make all the difference!

Black lace face mask

Isn’t this face mask just gorgeous?  I think this would look amazing when dressed as a gothic bride. I particularly love how you can see the eyes, but only just, which would give the outfit the perfect amount of halloween creepy-ness (or sexy-ness).

Shark Costume

Kids love to dress up and go trick or treating so we can’t forget about them! This adorable little shark costume would make any little terror truly terrifying! (or maybe just make you want to cuddle them more as they look so damn adorable!). Even better is that it’s actually a cape and so very versatile and easy to put on and off.

Halloween Brains

Obviously Zombies are ALWAYS a good choice for halloween and what do zombies love? Brains. I think this headband would look awesome whether you we’re out as a zombie or some kind of zombie victim. Just team it up with pale/green make up and lots of fake blood and you’re good to go!

Horned headdress

If you’re hosting an extravagant party and/or really want to push the boat out this year, why not use this amazing headdress. There’s so much work gone into it that it’s definitely worth the price tag (although it unfortunately doesn’t include the awesome wig as well). I can’t imagine there would be anyone not impressed by these terrifying horns.

Cat Hat with Ears

If you’ve been following this blog you already know my love of novelty hats. This hat is perfect for any cat lover or anyone who wants to become a cat for halloween. Not only is it amazingly cute but it also looks really warm!

Lion Halloween Costume

Ok, so this isn’t an accessory but you guys should know my love for Lions already. Doesn’t this little outfit just make you ‘squee’? It’s just too adorable for words.

Knitted Baby Dragon Feet

For my cousins last birthday we made the mistake of buying him some Dinosaur slippers and he spent the rest of the day roaring and stomping on EVERYTHING. I assume these cute little boots would have the same effect on small children too… Awesome for the child and for many laughs, not so good for any valuables left on the floor.

Steampunk lace collar

Again this is an item that would look amazing when dressed as a gothic bride or an evil witch. It would also look amazing paired with a plain dress for a night out. In fact I think I’m a little in love with this, it just looks so awesome!

Hopefully i’ve provided you with a little inspiration for this years halloween!

Now I just have to decide what I want to be!

I would love to see all your halloween costumes or halloween items!

‘Till next time!
