Happy Easter everyone! 

This year my birthday weekend just happens to fall over Easter. Yay me an extra 2 days to celebrate. 

I usually have a whole week of celebrations, regardless of whether it’s a ‘special’ birthday or not. Any reason to go out and be social is good enough for me!

I also have 4 months of making up to do in England. So they’ll be a few new places I’ll be experimenting with as well as hitting up some of my favourite old ones. 

I’m currently on my way to Bournemouth for a night with my besties.
  

Today’s outfit:

   
 

*Top: New Look *Coat: Prinark Waistcoat: Wearall *Jeans: Topshop *Shoes: Converse *Sunglasses: Rayban *

 
Don’t be deceived by the sun its still chilly! I’m taking my coat as a safe bet, it’s always much colder by the sea . 

Tomorrow I have a bottomless brunch booked at One Canada Square in Canary Wharf and for bank holiday Sunday were back at one of the famous Essex hubs: Faces. 

Keep your eyes peeled for a Bournemouth and brunch post :o)

What are your plans over this weekend?

Afternoon Tea at the Marriott Hotel

To celebrate National Afternoon Tea week last week, I headed over to the Marriott hotel for a sophisticated birthday celebration for one of the important older ladies in my life.   I have to say, there was a time when the image of afternoon tea consists of a group of 60 year olds sitting in a circle sipping cups of tea and pointing their pinky finger out, while discussing current affairs. These days it is hard to find a hotel around London that DOESNT do afternoon tea. It’s become something of a craze, is our generation swapping the vodka for earl grey?  Now one of the questions that are always on my mind for this sort of thing is what do you wear? This can be a tricky one. Whilst you want to dress up for this occasion, I dare say mini skirts and stilettos are a good choice for these sorts of places. Bearing in mind that these hotels are 4-5 star establishments, the safe bet is to go for a smart-casual look.
