A birthday to remember!

Saturday was my birthday (yes me and ross are both Gemini's - our birthdays are 11 days apart!). We often plan a holiday to celebrate our birthdays, last year we spoiled ourselves and flew to magical bali. This year as we have just moved to London we both chose a day to indulge in a few of our favourite things. Here are a few of mine :)

Visiting English tea rooms: We went to Soho's secret tea rooms and it was just lovely. We had tea (of course! Ross had Darjeeling), a round of very English salmon and cream cheese sandwiches (with cut-off crusts), Cream tea (scones with fresh cream and jams), and an amazing lemon meringue cup cake. The food was delicious and the atmosphere delightful. I felt as though I had stepped back in time to the 1940s :)

A wander around Portobello market, where the sun came out, we experienced more tasty food and browsed through antiques and vintage clothes... I purchased  two new dresses which I will preview later in the week.

After a beautiful day out we went home for birthday cake and a quick outfit change before meeting my best friend Neil for dinner at Yumyum - one of my favourite Thai restaurants in the UK - and then drinks. It was a perfect day and I was treated like a princess :)

Hope you all had a good weekend?
