A birthday morning with Radley...24 September 2015
Good morning lovely people! So today marks my 2nd full day as a 29 year old (what the actual F) and I am still in shock that I am nearing the end of my twenties (again, what the actual F).
When I was 16 I assumed that by the time I was old at say, 29 - an age that is old to a 16-year-old - I would be shacked up with 2 kids and a lager lout hubby, but no, that route was not meant to be. Instead, I am living the dream in London with awesome housemates, a fabulous job for an even more fabulous company (Yes Endource!), enjoying gin cocktails with my truly amazing friends, events with brands that I love and just generally taking in all the city has to offer.
So even though I haven't stumbled across the love of my life just yet - although if he could hurry along sooner rather than later that would be much appreciated (love gods - I hope you heard that semi-desperate plea) or bought a house OR had a baby - all things that you want to do by the time you're 30, let's be honest, I must take a minute to take that pressure jacket off and remember all the fab things I have done, do and enjoy!
So with that PMA in mind I started my birthday in style and very luckily enjoyed a morning with Radley celebrating the rather lovely Keats Grove Collection. Myself and a collection of gorgeous bloggers started the morning at Keats House, which for those of you that don't know is the home of John Keats the English romantic poet. The house sits on Keats Grove in the very beautiful Hampstead Heath which is the inspiration behind the collection.
We began the morning by snapping away in true blogger style before being treated to a tour of the house, a lovely flashback in time where we all found ourselves getting lost in the tragic yet amazing story of John Keats. With the tour done, it was onto a calligraphy lesson with the incredible Megan, whose handwriting skills were second to none. When our time at Keats House had come to an end the morning was finished off in the stylish Aubaine where I enjoyed the most divinely tasting eggs, bacon and avocado toast!
So basically I just want to say a very BIG thank you to the amazing Radley who made my birthday morning a very enjoyable morning indeed.
