Southampton has the Hollywood treatment

I finally made it to my first blogging event and it was attending the Hollywood Bowl VIP event in
Southampton. I was very nervous about going, not knowing what to expect or who I was going to meet, but the whole evening was a great success.


The evening started off by being welcomed by a Marilyn Monroe impersonator who had the look down to a tee, and she brought a great Hollywood feel to the entire event. I picked up my welcome pack and drink before heading off to the VIP section to meet the other bloggers.
The interior of the new Hollywood Bowl is wonderful, fresh and attractive to all ages. They have some of the classic arcade games, an American diner, a bar next to the bowling alleys and two VIP sections for those private parties or team builds.

We all played a game of bowling in one of the VIP sections, while being treated to some of the delights they serve in the American diner. I was determined to prove to everyone how bad I was at bowling and I did exactly that, by coming in last! As the night went on Marilyn did an official opening and ribbon cutting. They got everyone involved in the photos and it was a great way to open the alley.

Once we had finished our game of bowling we all went over to explore the arcade games. These games have become more high tech these days with a swipe card instead of coins but that makes it so much easier!



The whole night was a great success and will definitely be going back to have a few games. I would just like to thank the whole team at Hollywood Bowl in Southampton for the invite and the wonderful night.

2017 Goals

Happy New Year everyone! 

As it is already the second day of 2017, I thought I better start to think about what I want to get out of this year. I am determined to make something of this blog and myself in the next 12 months!

2017 is starting off with another huge change in my life, but a happier one to last year. My husband is starting a new job, which is going to have him away from home up to 12 weeks at a time. This is going to be a massive adjustment for me, and of course him, because I am so used to having him around and someone in the house. Also I will miss him!
