Getting ready and drinking fizz

Although I am currently in Crete I am reliably informed that the weather is pretty terrible back home and thus you will immediately be able to spot that these photographs were taken a couple of weeks ago when we still had wonderful sunshine in the UK.  One of the things I love about getting ready for a night out is when it’s warm enough to have an aperitif in the garden (I like getting ready in a leisurely manner with lots of time for prosecco and a languid bath) – and a few Fridays ago that was exactly what I did.

It was a friend’s leaving do in Southampton, and after donning my new denim Primark playsuit and some Marks and Spencer sandals I sat in the sunshine and enjoyed my new favourite fizz – an amazing prosecco from Spar – their SPAR Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco.  

Is there anything better than sitting in the garden in the sunshine enjoying a chilled glass of fizz? I was so impressed with how amazing this one tastes, it’s the perfect prosecco for a summer barbecue or a girls’ night in.  This one retails at £12, or there’s a similarly delicious SPAR Extra Dry DOC Prosecco for £10.  I think we all have a Spar in our neighbourhood so it’s easy to grab a bottle!

Then I hopped onto a train to Southampton in my little playsuit and we had an amazing send-off for my friend, with lots more prosecco and cocktails on the roof terrace at Revolution – it was perfect.  Now, can the sun come back so I can drink fizz in the garden again please? 

PS – soz for phone outfit pictures but I currently have a vacancy for the role of outfit photographer and instagram boyfriend – ha!
