Twenty One

On Thursday I turned 21! I actually still can't believe I'm 21, now I have to act responsibly and I don't have an excuse anymore! My birthday couldn't have been more perfect, I'm so lucky to have such lovely family and friends who treat me so well!

So Thursday morning I woke up to possibly the best surprise I think I could ever have. If anyone knows me at all, they know I've been dreaming of having a Mulberry bag for years, it's literally been the biggest obsession I've had ever. So you guessed it, I woke up to a brand new BEAUTIFUL Mulberry bag, I can't believe how lucky I am I can't stop staring at it thinking 'This isn't the display bag I have to put back on the shelf, it's all MINE!'

I was also given the most gorgeous Michael Kors watch from my sister, God it's beautiful and I love it, never leaving my wrist. Anyway, I'm starting to sound a little too excited so onto my perfect day!

We hopped on the train again up to London and first stop was Bond Street. We went to Michael Kors as they fit your watch for free there so I got my rather large watch fitted to my rather small wrist and now it's perfect! Then we went to Mulberry in the quest for a little purse from my Grandparents. This next sentence is going to sound very spoilt but I have a big Mulberry purse but sometimes it's just a little too big and heavy if you're just popping out to the shops or dinner quickly, so I wanted a smaller one, of course from Mulberry.

I couldn't find the one I liked in Bond Street but found success in Covent Garden, meant to be I think so once that was purchased I was a pretty happy girl.

Then we toddled off to the central Covent Garden plaza for a light snack at a place I've wanted to visit ever since I saw it while wandering around Covent Garden, Laudrée. If you haven't heard of it before then shame on you!

Laudrée make the most famous and beautiful macarons, I'd say, in the world but I'm not sure if that's factually correct! They have outdoor seating right in the centre of Covent Garden so we went there for a hot chocolate and to sample a few of those beautiful bites of heaven (trust me they truly are heaven)

The hot chocolate is literally just melted chocolate, it's so rich and my God the macarons are to die for! We had vanilla, raspberry, pistachio and Strawberry sugar marshmallow which were just amazing, they're so sweet that it takes you so long to eat them! It was £17 for the two of us to have hot choc and 4 macarons so kinda pricey for a quick stop but it's so special, the waiters are so friendly and inviting and you get the best seat for the Covent Garden entertainment!

After that we went to the Stratford Westfield, it's HUGE and you could eat something different everyday there for probably a month there's so much food!

We went to Yo! Sushi and had some glorious sushi, some yummy gyozas and tempura, lots of miso soup and noodles. The perfect lunch before a massive dinner!

We shopped til we dropped and got some proper bargains in Zara, two blouses I've desperately wanted for so long were half price! We came home and were whisked off to our favourite local pub 'The Mark Cross', they do the most delicious food and the owners have a small chain around the Kent and East Sussex area. The burgers are so so yummy I barely look at the menu these days and go straight for it!

Anyway, the day was absolutely perfect and I couldn't have asked for more, I'm such a lucky girl! Thank you to all my friends for their birthday wishes!
