Another Year Older..





It was my birthday on the 1st, I celebrated with two of my friends who organised the whole day to my surprise. I was very appreciative that they took the day into their hands, there is nothing I find more of a nuisance than planning your birthday/ the activity or occasion alongside the day you were born how many years ago, it is all so long. I understand why some people choose not to celebrate it as it is just another day. That being said I am glad I celebrated it! The one thing I did plan was to go the Chanel exhibition at the Saatchi Galllery, that was before we arrived to see the ridiculous 2 hour or more wait of a queue outside the gallery. ( Typical, the one thing I scheduled in for the day. Didn't go to plan). We strolled around Westminster, before walking through the Horse Guard Parade and I became pals with one of the displays horses (pictured above). My friends surprised me with a meal and some great cake at Franco Manca, where other friends from university also came and joined in the birthday celebrations. To end the evening I had one more surprise in store. Rushing to finish our pizza and cake at Franco Manca we rushed into an Uber to the South Bank just in time for… La SoirĂ©e! A circus show filled with laughter. I'm so grateful to my two friends who organised the day. Lots of love to you both!!

"A birthday is just another day where you go to work and people give you love. Age is just a state of mind, and you are as old as you think you are. You have to count your blessings and be happy."  - Abhishek Bachchan
