This is a little bit of a late post, but on Thursday 31st October, my partner and I celebrated our 2nd Anniversary (not wedding anniversary, I’m still working on that!)
He’d been taunting me with a surprise he had planned for weeks! In the morning he came through to the sitting room with a gorgeous leopard print suitcase and told me to pack enough things for the next day! Then we got in the car and drove about 30 miles outside of Edinburgh.
This was me excited before we left!
(I really need to learn to smile! ha ha!)
Then we arrived at the Macdonald Inchyra Grange Hotel and Spa near Falkirk! The hotel was gorgeous! It was in what looked like an old church which had been converted into a hotel.
This was our lovely room for the night:
How amazing is this sofa!!? I was honestly contemplating buying it off the hotel, i loved it that much! I took this photo to see if I could find a similar one anywhere when we eventually buy a house!
So, once we had put our things in the room we headed down for lunch in the restaurant. I had gammon steaks with chips and egg which was amazing. Full of flavour, which is not something you can always say about gammon! My partner had mushroom tagliatelle. I had a little taste of this and it was also amazing!
After lunch, we headed to the swimming pool. It was lovely and quiet! Everytime I try to go swimming in Edinburgh, the pool is full of babies and toddlers screaming! We had a lovely swim, sauna and steam room, then we relaxed on the heated loungers before heading back upstairs for a shower.
Then came my second surprise! He’d booked me 2 spa treatments!! My first treatment was a back, neck and shoulder massage which was amazing! That was the first time I’d ever had a massage but I will definitely be booking another one in the future!
The second treatment as a 30 minute facial. The hotel used Decleor skin products and it was my first time using these products. The therapist told me they are all made using essential oils and natural products. After the facial my skin felt lovely and soft! It also got rid of the patch of dry skin I had on my forehead which was a bonus. My skin is still feeling lovely even 2 weeks later! You can buy Decleor skin products HERE
After my relaxing time in the beautiful spa, we headed out to dinner to celebrate our 2 years together!
Please excuse my face! We took these photos before i had done my hair and make-up!
My dress is from Lipsy (£48). I also had a leopard print clutch bag from Accessorize, plain black tights from Primark and plain black court shoes from New Look.
My other half is wearing Primark Chinos, M&S shirt, and tartan tie with matching pocket square from Tie Rack!
We both had an amazing time and we can’t wait to do it again some day! In January we will be heading off on our very special holiday which we have been saving and waiting for for over a year! I’m so excited about it! It has always been my dream, when I turn 21 to go to New York and we are finally going!!!
Expect many excited blog posts about this as we get even closer! 50 days to go! 🙂
