+ Box Braids
+ Hanging with R
+ The Hobbit
+ Snail Mail
This week has been a historical one in House Charlton. After almost four years, my pup Bailey has finally learned how to fetch. Apart of me thinks he always knew how but sometimes Bails can be uber lazy and decide to just watch the ball roll by.
In keeping up with the #NoHeatDecember challenge, I have been trying to find different ways to style my braids. This week I came up with what I call "The Wolverine". There might actually be a real name for it but eh, it's The Wolverine to me. If you want to see the hairstyles in advance, you can find them here with the hashtag, #NoHeatDecember.
R & The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
R and I have decided to hang out the entire weekend. We have remained really good friends and I'm thankful for that.
On Friday night, we decided to see The Hobbit. When it comes to mythology, fantasy, dungeons & dragons or anything medieval, I am such a geek! A chick geek of course. Two of my favorite actors
and crushes were cast in The Desolation of Smaug. Can you guess who? They're both British :) Ok so that didn't make it any easier. Another hint would be, one of them portrayed a pirate and the other, a musketeer. I'm sure you've figured it out by now.
Now back to the movie.
The Desolation of Smaug was action packed and full of wizardry. It did not disappoint but then again, I don't think LOTR or The Hobbit can ever disappoint me. I'm so excited for the final instalment next Christmas! Has anyone else seen it as yet? How did you like it?
Seafront Sushi. It's been years since we were last here and since then, they've moved to a new location. When we got there, we were escorted upstairs to a booth where we sat bare-feet on cushions. R wasn't too happy but I did insist on a booth rather than a table. We both started with appetizers and one entree. R isn't really a big sushi fan so he stuck with the Shrimp Shumai as an appetizer and desert. I chowed on Sapporo Rolls for starters and we shared the Shrimp Udon (noodles) as an entree. For desert, we tried the Tempura Guava Duff. Guava duff is a Bahamian delicacy and we heard rave reviews about it at Seafront. Unfortunately, we were not impressed with the duff. I called it "struggle food" because R and I struggled to get through it...and we shared a plate. Everything else was absolutely delish! The service could have been a smidgen better but it was acceptable I suppose. At one point, the waiter forgot my to send in my order. Overall, it was a beautiful night with a rather handsome man.
