Birthdays, Beaches and Tea Parties… – Yours Truly

Today I turned 25! And I definitely don’t feel my age! I travelled down to Brighton to spend a long weekend with Joshua and our friends and frolic in the gorgeous sunshine!

My dress is a new find from Topshop (a sale bargain!) it’s so pretty with broderie anglaise detailing and it fits like a glove! I love the neckline and the little nipped in waist. My daisy necklace is also from Topshop, and I’m wearing my clogs again with my favourite box bag from Absolute Vintage…

We started the day early with our favourite pancake and fruit breakfast before heading down to the beach to make the most of the scorchingly beautiful weather!

On the way to the beach we stopped into a gorgeous flower shop on the lanes…I loved these bouquets of iris’s, such beautiful colours!

And I gazed with envy at these stunning bicycles…The red one is a dream!
After a humble picnic on the beach, eating homemade sandwiches and cheeky bit of wine, we ambled up to a nearby tea shop called ‘The Mock Turtle’, a name which I believe is based on one of the Alice in Wonderland novels. (Also check my friend’s reviews on best folding picnic table at here!) I love the wall to wall china inside the cramped little teashop, and the obscenely tasty cakes! I tried the banana cake which was just heavenly!

Nothing better than traditional afternoon tea, complete with mismatched china and a strainer set!

All in all it was a beautiful day, with good food, company and weather! I just can’t get my head around the fact I am now 25! Eep!

And now, finally (I’m so sorry for keeping you guys all waiting!) I can now announce the winner of the Material Girl magazine giveaway! Please email me your postal address ([email protected]) and I’ll be sure to pop the magazine in the post as soon as possible! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I loved reading about your plans! I’ll be running a couple more competitions throughout the rest of the summer too! More soon, including some of the wonderful gifts I was lucky enough to receive!
