A very British birthday

London birthday-00011-DSCF1469

I celebrated my 25th birthday while in London. It was the day after the royal baby was born and it was a day i’ll never forget. I got to hang out with Dylan, my sister and my sweet niece and nephew all morning. We went to Hyde park, got soaked in a freak rain storm and ended up at Laduree in Harrods. We sipped on tea and picked out a plate of multi-coloured macaroons, and got surprised with a birthday cake and a song from the lovely french staff.

Dylan and I spent the rest of the afternoon shopping on Oxford street and ended the day at Byron with my sister and brother in law. You may remember Byron from this post I did about 2 years ago! Their focus is burgers and beers and they get it so so right. I’m also obsessed with the little design details on everything.


Post-getting-caught-in-the-rain-curls! How cute is my niece?
