Giveaway Time!

Giveaway details at the bottom of the post!
My birthday and Valentine’s Day are really close together. I really wish they weren’t! Chances of getting 2 presents two weeks in a row, pretty slim. We’ll see what Valentine’s Day bring this year but my birthday weekend was great! I got a grapefruit cupcake from Ms. Cupcake at Greenwich Market. Fantastically sweet and sour at the same time!

My husband took me for an amazing lunch at Hakkasan Mayfair. I got a black forest martini. Martini’s are my favorite cocktail and this one tasted like cake!

New Special at Lola’s for February, (gutted I missed the January Toblerone) Black Forest. I wasn’t really blow away with this one. To me it tasted like their chocolate cupcake but just with a cherry on top!

Some of the best scrambled eggs (and decent American style pancakes) at The Cabin Bar & Grill in Chiswick (recently relocated from Fulham) for a birthday breakfast with my friend.

    my best vday present was about 20 years ago when i was first living in Ireland , i was a new young mom and feeling very home sick for my family back in the USA. My husband left for school but came back about an hour later ( I was still in bed) and he left a bag of coins on the table with a note saying " Happy Valentines Day, I love you, now here is a little something for you to call someone you love" You see we did not have a phone and had to use the payphone around the corner, so he gave me a bag of coins to make the phone call to my mom. We are married now 25 yrs, and that is the one that is most special to me

  5. My favorite Bday present was an ice cream cake! MMMM

    Just found your blog yesterday and I love it. The best birthday present I got was from my parents when I turned 16- I was going through a rough patch, and they got me a beautiful pearl necklace. It is so special to me!

  17. My favorite birthday gift was receiving a dollhouse at age 7 from my parents. It was just something I had really wanted for a while but had never asked for because I knew it was on the pricey end. Somehow they knew and really made my day special :)
