So todays post is a wee bit different from the usual. Money Supermarket got in touch with me & asked if I’d like to take part in a little competition they have going on where you have to have a ‘big night in’ for under 50 squids! (if you want to read a little more about it you can here>link) I got very excited about the whole thing & jumped at the chance, after all, who doesn't like a good ol’ night in?!

As you can see from the pictures Liam, Jack & I decided to have an astronomy themed night. If you have been reading my blog/followed me on twitter for a while, you might already know that we are both astronomy geeks so a night like this seemed pretty apt!

Between watching a bit of ol’ Coxy (gotta love Brian Cox) playing with our new star projector & eating space themed snacks (flying saucers, starmix, rainbow drops & galaxy) in our home made fairy light den, we decided to venture into the garden & photograph some stars with my DSLR which was really fun & obvs we ended up making light trail pictures with our phones too haahaha (‘:

All in all we had a brilliant & money savvy night, thank you Money Supermarket! Staying in definitely beats going out!

What do you think of our big night in? Do you guys prefer staying in or going out on the town? What would be your perfect night in? :)
