Dinner For Two At Radisson Blu Hotel

 This weekend one of my best friends and I went to dinner at the gorgeous Radisson Blu Hotel. I had entered a competition on Valentine’s Day which asked us to show a visual interpretation of what love is. I will show you what I entered at the end of this blog but the great news is that I won a dinner for two, a bottle of wine and roses at the gorgeous Hotel.

As Valentine’s day was in the middle of the week we could not make it but asked for the reservation to be moved to the weekend which was agreed but when we got there, nobody seemed to know about the competition and this was so annoying because we had to explain to the manager why we were there. After a few calls it was sorted and we go a buffet dinner and a bottle of wine but no roses. Bleh.

We were a little upset by the whole confusion but we tried to enjoy our dinner and we ate every single thing on the buffet! hahaha. Don't ask me about what happened the next day because yes, I had a running tummy! Didn’t really take many pictures while we ate though.
Before you ask, I hope I mentioned that my boyfriend works in another part of the country and we are currently in a long distance relationship. I would have loved to share this dinner with him but he wasn't here so the next best thing was this gorgeous girl who is one of the loveliest people in the world and has been my friend for years and years!

We went out dancing later, it was fun. I love to dance but to be honest I am getting a little tired of the club scene! I never thought I'd say that but it's true. I get tired early and when they play the same music over and over again, I get irritated. I'm  also sick of all the guys who think they are ballers and are used to women sleeping with them after a few drinks walking up to me and making advances. It's getting old.

 My picture submission for the valentine’s competition was a picture me and my boyfriend took on a weekend get-away in Lower Zambezi. You can read about it here and see more amazing pictures. My description of love was:

"Love is when two people with individual aspirations and dreams decide to take a step in the same direction, together."

Hope you like my outfit! I finally got wet-look leggings from Mr. Price. This is actually my second pair, got myself a pair on my birthday but lost them as I was travelling and never got to wear them :( The shirt is from Mudd Jeans and I just love it, so classy! And of course my favourite pair of yellow heels which never fail to add pizzaz to any of my outfits. Thank you for reading! Follow me on instagram and twitter @ghetogal

PS: I'm having g a huge problem commenting on other bloggers blogs or replying to comments. Anybody know how I can sort this out? It seems to be a problem many bloggers here are facing!


  1. As long as you spent that day with a loved one, it's all good! I like your outfit, especially the yellow shoes! :)

  2. You both had nice outfits, I like your friends' skirt!
    And I agree with Seun, as long as you were with someone you love, it definitely is worth :)
    Looks like you had fun, I'm glad :)
