It’s true, i’m a Five Guy virgin! I know, I know, I’m super late jumping on this band wagon, and considering there is one at the end of the road my office is on, i really have no excuse. It’s just every time i have walked past, there is some sort of crazy cue, or the people i’m with don’t fancy a burger. So it’s just sort of never happened. But last week i decided enough was enough! I was going to take the Five Guy plunge.
This year i was privileged enough to get an invite to the Joy AW15 Press Day. As you can imagine, i was super excited! You may remember that i did a post a while back about one of their events they held, so if that was anything to go by, i knew the press day would be great. I have always loved Joy’s stuff, so being given the opportunity to preview their next collection before anyone else had me grinning from ear to ear!
When the sun is out, pretty much everyone goes in search of a roof top bar/restaurant to catch the rays and get merry. I’m no different! As soon as the sun even begins to make an appearance i jump at the chance to find a beer garden or roof top for post work drinks. This weekend my delightful bestie Meems suggested we pop over to The Boundary, in the heart of Shoreditch, for exactly that, post work drinks in the sun.
In case you hadn’t noticed by now, i’m a bit of a foodie. By that i mean, I LOVE FOOD! So when i heard that Street Feast was returning to Dalston, just round the corner from my beautiful friend Simona, for the summer i couldn’t resist dragging her down there for some serious indulgence!
I have always loved Alice in Wonderland. I think the story is amazing, all be it a little crazy! So when i saw the posters up around the tube advertising Alice’s Adventures Underground, i knew i had to go. It also conveniently opened the same month as my birthday! So it was added to the growing list of birthday activities i already had arranged.
In my very fragile state i clambered out of bed and packed my overnight bag, making sure i remembered my swim stuff, gym stuff and a fancy outfit for dinner! We jumped in the car and after making a quick pitstop for recovery snacks made the quick 15min drive over to the AMAZING Foxhills!
This place is just STUNNING!!!!! As you pull in through the huge gates you quickly get your first glimpse of the manor house between the tree lined drive way.
All of my friends will tell you, i’m a bit of a birthday princess! I’ve always loved birthdays and do my best to make a big deal about other peoples, therefore it should come as no surprise that i like to do the same for my own! This year was NO exception! I had planned a big old night out on the Saturday, family brunch on the Sunday morning and then was being whisked away for an amazing birthday surprise on the Sunday/Monday (my actual birthday!)
The night started out as sophisticated as you could imagine!
April is just a month full of birthday’s for me! From the very start, and every week thereafter i have a birthday to celebrate. The second birthday i had was my darling friend Shay’s.
I love Shay, she’s one of those girls that you know your guaranteed to have a good night with, regardless of what it is you have planned. Hence why i was more than happy to head over to All Star Lanes on brick lane to help her celebrate this year.
