Girls Date! | F&B & The Fault In Our Stars

Evening everyone!

Recently me and one of my closest friends Katie went to the Showcase complex in Nottingham for a girly day and catch up. Since I've moved back home from University now, it feels so great to see all my friends back in my hometown as I've missed them so much. Even though I'm from Nottingham and was only at University in the city, most of them had gone away to literally all opposite ends of the country, meaning it was very hard to see each other! 
Anyway, Katie and I have always been close and as we've both been so busy with working recently, we decided to set time aside one Sunday evening for a catch up. Both of us had been desperate to see The Fault in Our Stars, and we figured we might as well go for some food first. So we settled on Frankie and Benny's.

Usually when I go to Frankie and Benny's, I go for pizza as I adore the pizzas there. However this time I decided to try something different, and went for the Bruschetta to start. Before summer school in Berlin last year, I had never even tried it! I don't know how, but since Berlin, I've been hooked on it. Just looking at the photo now is making me hungry!

For my main, I went for a Chicken and Chorizo Gnocchi Bake. I was a little hesitant at first as I've never had Gnocchi before - what if I didn't enjoy it? Thankfully it was mouthwateringly good - so much so that it is now going to be my regular meal whenever I go to Frankie and Benny's!

After finishing up, we headed over to the cinema and waited around impatiently to be let in to the screen. Now I've got to be honest here - I didn't know much about the film apart from that it was heartbreakingly sad. Or so I heard. Honestly, part of me was skeptical so I knew I had to find out for myself.

Boy oh boy this film did not disappoint. I can 100% honestly say I have never cried so much at a film before. I cried like a baby. Normally I would have been embarrassed at crying so much in the cinema, but there actually wasn't one dry eye in there! The film brings to light so much about living with terminal illness, and how it affects peoples families. The relationship between Hazel and Augustus was beautiful and upsetting at the same time, but what got me crying the most was the relationship between Hazel and her family. The thought of her leaving her family behind had me welling up, and even thinking back on this film now has tears in my eyes.

I think I might have to stop dwelling on this film before I start crying again (yes I'm ridiculously emotional). Thankfully though, I can report that the Benefit makeup I brought recently (see the post here) is 100% waterproof.

How about you? Have you seen TFIOS? What did you think?

Your meal and F&B sounds amazing! I really want to see The Fault In Our Stars as well but I'm currently reading the book so I think I will wait till I've finished it!
