Friday was spent with girlfriends! I rarely “go out”, but I did enjoy this evening.

I wanted to wear something colourful and “sexy” but not club “sexy”. I also wanted to look good. I did wear a navy blazer so it looked like I was coming from the office :p. I was coming from my home office, so I think that counts.

I decided to layer some chain necklaces I made and recycled glass bead and wood bracelets. You can never have too many accessories. I think that they really show the world your personality.

I felt like going all out and applying makeup. I used eyebrow pencil put on a pink lipstick with a bit of gloss. Why? Because.

I met up with my friends Becky Kung of Velvet & Vino and Daniela Codreanu who has a blog of the same name! We attended at department store event that was in support of breast cancer. They had drinks, a fun photobooth, and hors d’oeuvres. Then it was off to dinner at Alloy.

The atmosphere in the restaurant was higher-end and welcoming. It actually reminded me of a restaurant that I would frequent in Accra. There was a mix of textures throughout the restaurant: white, patterned cinder block walls with sleek rectangular mirrors, smooth white half round chairs and tall, organic pink orchids. We sat at a white granite table under an amazing arrangement of light fixtures.

The restaurant started us with olives, hummus and pita bread.

I had the free range chicken supreme with miso soy, potato koroke, and bok choy. The chicken was actually moist. I was pretty impressed. The soy was excellent, but the potatoes were a bit salty for my taste.

Daniela and I shared dessert (No picture. Sorry!). We got chocolate & chili fallen soufflé. At first I was hesitant to mix chocolate and chilli, but I was pleasantly surprised. I wouldn’t have it again; however, I am glad I tried it.

Overall, all the food was decent. I would say that the atmosphere and company was what really made the dining experience enjoyable.

Finally, I had to check out the washrooms. You can really judge the caliber of a restaurant based on the washroom. It was a well decorated and clean space with very nice hand towels!

It was very nice going out. I enjoyed it so much I may actually go out more often!
