As promised, here is my post about all the birthday fun I had last Thursday. On August 4, I turned 27 (wow time does truly fly when you are having fun) and I had a GREAT day! I did have to work that day but I didn’t mind. Growing up my birthday was always right smack bang in the middle of summer holidays which was awesome because got to celebrate it in another country with my family whilst on holiday, but it did mean you always had to have your ‘party’ way before or way after the holidays which didn’t make it quite so relevant if you know what I mean. Therefore working on my holiday these days, suits me just fine; that little extra attention is quite the treat I have to admit (OK yes I am a Leo so don’t judge me! Haha)

After my day at work where I was treated to cake, blowing out candles and being sung happy birthday to, I headed home to quickly get changed to meet my girlfriends in Clapham (South West London) for a lovely night out. We had wine, an amazing dinner, following by the yummiest cupcakes made for us my my friend and then headed out for a few cocktails.
Check out this super cute little shed that’s in the garden of the restaurant we went to in Clapham:
Thanks to all my girls for a lovely evening out xoxo
