Five on Friday

25 August 2017|

It’s been a while since I did a Friday post, and this is my happiest one yet…All about my Birthday Week!

One // Birthday Morning. Nothing better than birthday morning traditions of tea and cake in bed, blowing out the candles, Happy Birthday singing, balloons, cards and gifts. The excitement to share with my baby girls just makes my year. Thank you MC for an unforgettable morning and best start to my day.

Two // Birthday Brunch. I am truly blessed with the bestest friends. A relaxed morning of brunch and bubbles with my favorite girls. And I had so much fun with the pink cactus theme. (more pics to follow soon)

Three // Night on the Town. It’s not often that we head out for a few drinks and enjoy a bit of dazzle but a birthday is a great excuse. A night of laughter, the most delicious gin cocktails and even a little bit of dancing.

Four // High Tea. One of my favorite annual birthday traditions – high tea at The Oyster Box Hotel with my gorgeous mom friends. An indulgent afternoon of sweet and savory treats, tea and bubbly on tap and more laughs and memories.

Five // Surprise Birthday Lunch. When one of your besties invites you fir a fine dining lunch experience on your birthday, you get excited but when you walk into said lunch and ALL your besties are at the table… your heart explodes! Such an awesome surprise and a delicious lunch at The Chefs Table.

Six // Spa Pamper. Another favorite birthday tradition is our spa pamper afternoon with my spa bestie. Cands and I both love a good massage and an afternoon at The Oyster Box followed by their curry buffet for dinner. We go in February for her birthday and August for mine, and spend our birthday vouchers.

How do you celebrate your birth-day or birthday week?
