My birthday!

Well this post is a bit late but with the week I've had I'm sure you'll forgive me! This year we played it a bit low key with a nice trip into central London followed by dinner at TGIF!



My birthday outfit, love this jumper! Got it from Pull and Bear so cosy and warm.

First stop was at Starbucks around the corner from our house where Dan surprised me with a skinny soy chai plus a little message hehe.

In the morning we stopped at one of my favourite bakeries where Dan bought me a yummy nibble for my breaky.

After a nice healthy lunch at Wholefoods we continued shopping on Oxford street as well as Soho, then in the afternoon I made a bee line for Selfridges where Dan bought me my long awaited peanut butter ├ęclair which I've been craving for ages! For a peanut butter lover this was out of this world yummy, very naughty but so worth it.

TGIF was so much fun! I ordered a massive glass of long Island ice tea to start me off. Sadly though as an expert in long island ice teas it didn't have as much of a kick as I'm use too, but at 7 pounds for a massive glass I was happy with what I got. After my first tipple I treated myself to a classic cosmopolitan which was cute, pink and delicious! For dinner I ordered a half portion of their famous Jim Bean ribs which were so moreish I had to stop myself from licking the plate. Dan ordered a steak (of course!) with all the trimmings (including a strawberry milk shake! hehe).

Afterwards we made our way to Soho where I finished off the night with a scoop of ice cream at a cool little nook on Row street. This place has been dubbed as the best ice cream in London, they've got everything from traditional vanilla, vegan chocolate to rosemary and honey which is said to be their top flavour and is the little beauty I picked. Definitely recommend this little shop to all who visit!

 A few bits and bobs from Mac I was in desperate need of! Excited to finally be able to grab them with the help I some much appreciated birthday money.
 A quick snap of my totally cute birthday card from Dan!

What better way to count down the last few minutes of my birthday then in bed with a big old slice of birthday cake hehe.

I plan to make 22 bigger and better then 21! I've got big plans for this year, full of music (of course!), food, wedding plans, blogging and much much more.  Bring it on!
