Competition Winner

Back at the beginning of July, I published a blog post titled Does Good Luck Actually Exist? where I briefly touched on how many competitions I'd won recently but still wasn't quite sure whether it was down to good luck or not.

On July 5th I was lucky enough to win yet another competition with The Luna Cinema and Double Tree by Hilton. I won 2 tickets to attend an exclusive outdoor cinema screening and to say I am ridiculously excited is an understatement!

It's taken me a little while to post this blog post because believe it or not, there is a lot to organize!
The Luna Cinema is being hosted all over the UK this summer at some stunning locations. Unbeknown to me our prize is for 2 premium tickets which entitle us to reserved directors chairs, a complimentary drink and we're able to avoid any queues to the food and drink stalls. How cool is that?

Of course, before we could get too excited we had to decide on where and what film we'd like to attend and there are so many options! We managed to whittle it down to a handful of films including the original Ghostbusters, Back To The Future and The Goonies. There is even the option to watch Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone(!!) but unfortunately for me, S isn't a big Harry Potter fan so that choice was instantly struck off... Unless he wasn't able to get the time off work!

We've managed to settle on Ghostbusters at Lydiard House in Swindon on Sunday 13th August. Ironically, this is the day before S's birthday so we're using it as a way to start birthday celebrations off a day early. Yes, Ghostbusters is a film we've both seen before but I am still super excited for the whole outdoor cinema experience.

Here's just a few things I'm most excited for:
I mean, just look at it.

Seeing Lydiard House.
I'm not sure if it is classed as a 'stately home' but it looks absolutely beautiful. 

Being sat beneath the stars.
I find nothing more magical than being sat under the night sky! I have a huge love for stars, planets, the universe although I tend to freak myself out slightly over thinking things that I simply can not wait to begin celebrating S's birthday under the stars.

Albeit on the pricey side, I honestly can not wait to treat myself to a Sicilia Roots pizza. My mouth waters just looking at them. We are also taking a little picnic basket of treats to enjoy during the film.

The premier inn bed.
I never knew the fascination of a premier inn bed until I slept in one recently and oh my! it's honestly like sleeping in a cloud and definitely one of the things I'm most looking forward to doing after a 2 hour 15 drive.

The Cotswolds.
It's always been on my list of 'places I must visit in the UK' and the possibility of finally being able to go visit the Cotswolds excites me so so much! Granted, I'm aware it'll be S's birthday and wandering around the cute little village roads looking at quaint little cottages may not be his thing but I'm secretly hoping he'll agree to at least visit one or two places!

Of course, I'll be blogging my experience but I'm also considering doing a weekly vlog as well for my YouTube channel as I think we may have a super fun and exciting week planned.
