Last weekend was my birthday weekend, well my actual birthday was on Monday (15th) but I decided to celebrate it across the 3 days as I had the weekend off and thought why not!?
On Saturday I went to London for the day with my boyfriend, and had the best day full of surprises.
We went early in the morning to avoid the rush and I couldn't resist a trip to Oxford Street for a spot of birthday shopping! (more to come). I must have bought something in every shop, as there is always so much choice in London.
After my shopping haul, my boyfriend surprised me with tickets to go inside The Tower of London. It was so beautiful, with various sections, learning about the history and also seeing the crown jewels. I loved it, as I love learning about history within the city and sightseeing.
We then headed to Chelsea to the famous little street featuring my favourite...pretty pastel coloured buildings. It reminded me of Notting Hill, which is where I visited last year. I adore the houses in London, as they are more town like and love how unique they are.
Around the corner, my boyfriend treated me to a hot chocolate and the cutest 'Chocolate heaven' cupcake on pretty pink cups and saucers..yes you've guessed it! Peggy Porschen café! This was my second visit and it felt so special to go on my birthday. Its just the most girliest and was the highlight of my day.
To end our day in London, my boyfriend surprised me again with an emirates cable car ride over the River Thames! it was so romantic and the best surprise. I loved every moment and definitely recommend a ride next time you're in the city, especially if you're visiting the O2.

On the Sunday I got to visit my cousin down in Somerset for a beautiful family catch up and birthday roast at The Railway Inn. I was surprised with a birthday dessert, as everyone who knows me well will know I LOVE dessert, especially if it includes chocolate!
On my birthday, I celebrated it with afternoon tea at Coombe Abbey Hotel with my mum. It was the most lovely setting, in the conservatory at the back of the hotel. We had scones, little sandwiches and different selections of cakes, with tea. It was lovely and took away the miserable rainy weather, which I didn't appreciate on my birthday!

To end the best weekend, my parents took me for dinner at Gusto. My favourite Italian restaurant of all time. To top it off I got a scoop of chocolate ice cream with a candle in it! Perfect.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
