I turned 22 on Saturday and to celebrate, invited a handful of friends over for a ‘bring-a-bit-with-you’ buffet. We all had to play musical chairs throughout the afternoon as there weren’t enough seats for bottoms! But it all worked out fine as there was always a couple of people in the kitchen prepping something tasty. It was such a lovely afternoon – we all ate delicious, special foods that everyone had lovingly made with their own hands. Ranging from a delicious ham platter by Carrie and my stinky cheeseboard, to Mariell and Josteins scones and teeny madeleines wrapped in polka dot cellophane and a velvet ribbon. We drank prosecco, pimm’s and raspberry vodka and had a jolly good chin-wag. The best way to get older – thank you everyone!

      Hi Rosie!
      Wow, thank you! 🙂
      The dress is from ASOS, it was in the sale and isn’t normally my kind of thing but the colours and print were just perfect so I had to! 🙂
