On my birthday morning I was awoken with breakfast in bed, to get some energy, because my husband was taking me out for a walk… somewhere… He wouldn’t say! Continue reading “Birthday dream for a history geek”
Why you should treat yourself to a dinner at Acanthus Restaurant
As you might have already seen on Insta, I have recently celebrated my 27th birthday, and my lovely husband, instead of just taking me out for dinner, surprised me with a mini getaway to The Randolph Hotel.

Harry and Megan are getting married on 19th of May, giving us an extra excuse to celebrate all things British, drink gin and eat fresh scones and finger sandwhiches.

Today is International Day of Happiness, which was introduced by the UN in 2012 to recognise ‘the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives’ as well as to be a useful reminder that the happiness comes from family, friends and good emotional well-being rather than money and fame.

Let’s not dwell on the fact that I am now on the wrong side of my twenties, that I will turn thirty before I know it… Instead, why don’t we have a look at how great my birthday celebration was, and announce a winner for the best birthday message. Continue reading “Hello, I’m 26.”
We’re getting closer to the end of 2017 and I would like to review it – to savour the memories whilst they are still clear and write them down, so that I won’t forget.
What a year it has been! So much has happened, so many boxes have been ticked, so many great memories and realisations #adulting 🙂
So let’s start.
I’ve started the year dressed as a police officer, and 12 days later (don’t forget, my birthday is on 12th of January!), I was the karaoke princess celebrating hitting a quarter of a century at the Mad Hatter.
All in all, my month was fantastic, so 2017 had a really good start.
