Birthday Fun

Me again…

I hope you’ve all had a lovely week.

It’s been a week since my last post and in that time I HAD A BIRTHDAY!

🙂

I try to practice gratitude everyday but around my birthday I’m always just super aware of how lucky I am for everyone/thing in my life.

Here’s what I got up to…

 

Saturday 29th July

Afternoon Tea at The Oblix

(Up the Shard)

I decided I wanted to have a nice chilled birthday this year as I tend to over plan and then get a little bit overwhelmed, so I celebrated the weekend before instead with some of my friends and family so that I could just play it by ear on my actual birthday weekend.

The Gluten and Dairy free Afternoon Tea provided for my cousin Megan. Although their scones are vegan they weren’t gluten free so unfortunetly Meg couldn’t join in on the scones…HOWEVER what she could eat was lovely and filled her enough anyway!

Our scone decorations and the first time I’ve had honey comb at an afternoon tea!

Traditional afternoon tea cost £42

Afternoon Tea including a glass of champagne was £52

And Megan was only charged around £24 for hers due to the absence of scones

(non of the above prices include service charge)

Apart from a couple of taste preferences among some of our party we were very impressed with the experience!

The food was great, the views and the restaurant was lovely and the company was awesome so it was a thumbs up from us!

If I had to rate our all round experience I’d give it an 8/10

Friday 26th July

Dinner at Ours

(South Kensington)

This place has been on my bucket list for a good 3/4 years now so when my friend Sophie couldn’t make afternoon tea we decided it was the perfect excuse to have a seperate celebration of our own and went for dinner the Friday before my birthday the following week!

A little birthday surprise! hehe

 

Although I’ve wanted to eat here for a long time I have to admit I was slightly worried it would be one of those places that are great for a photo but let you down with the food and although it was pretty pricey it was completely worth it in our opinion and the perfect “occasion! restaurant!

A STRONG 9.5/10

 

Saturday 27th July (MY BIRTHDAY!)

Wall Climbing at Vertigo

After some birthday breakfast my little sister took me to Vertigo for a morning workout and adrenalin rush!

There were lots of different climbing walls as well as a step tower and two different leap of faiths.

It was exactly the chilled birthday I hoped for

🙂

 

I wanted to include WHAT I GOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY in this post but I’ve decided to do a separate one as I’m currently away for the week and would like to include more than the content I already have!

So that will be coming next week!

🙂

How do you like to spend your birthday? Or don’t you like to?

Comment how and where you spent it, you never know…it might inspire me and others on how to spend their next birthday too!
