As I took a few pretty pictures from my birthday weekend, I thought it was only right to pop them all into a little blog post and share what I got up to, as well as some of the cute things I was lucky to receive!
Me and my boyfriend had a little bank holiday trip to London but if you didn’t know, I live in the beautiful city of Bath and took this little snap of SouthGate shopping centre before we went to the train station. The rainbow umbrella design is genius, it still looks vibrant and Summery whilst also managing to ironically depict the British Summer weather, which isn’t the greatest let’s face it.

Whilst in London, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit Peggy Porschen, aka. the girliest cake shop ever, which currently looks even prettier with the pink floral display running around the entrance. The cake was delicious and I also bought one of the cake recipe books, but I think I was mostly fascinated by how pink and pretty everything was!
|Bob Bob Ricard|
We also had a fancy schmancy dinner at Bob Bob Ricard, because if you can’t pretend to be posh on your birthday, when can you?! At the table was an actual Press For Champagne button and if I could’ve taken it home, life would be complete.
|Marc Jacobs | Remarcable Foundation|
A birthday isn’t complete without subjecting your boyfriend to a teeny bit of makeup shopping, it’s basically the only time you can do it mostly guilt free! I had no idea Marc Jacobs makeup line was sold in the UK, but I instantly picked up the Remarcable foundation which I’d been dying to try for the longest time. It’s has the most insane pigmentation that I’ve ever seen, a tiny dot goes the longest way!
|Bombay Duck | Belle Cake Stand|
I was also given the prettiest blush pink cake stand from Bombay Duck as a gift from my sisters. I think everyone in my family has cottoned on that I love baking by the amount of cake I practically force feed them. My Mum also bought me a pretty pink stand mixer, so I can finally rest my old wooden spoon and become part of the 21st century, woo.
|Birthday Treats | Truffles & Teddys|
Lastly, whilst we were browsing Harrods like total London tourists, my boyfriend treated me to my favourite Pink Marc De Champagne Truffles from Charbonnel et Walker, I almost went for the Sea Salt Caramel Truffles which also sounded delicious, but I obviously gravitated towards the pink ones again (eye roll). He also bought me a super soft cute pink teddy bear because if he hadn’t bought it, I definitely would’ve! Anyone would think I had just turned 12 not 23…
