A few weeks ago it was my birthday so I decided to treat myself to a little trip up to London with my eldest daughter. We met up with Faye my best friend of 27 years for Dim Sum at Ping Pong followed by a wander round the Tate modern. Living a distance apart and both so much going on, I don’t get to see Faye nearly as much as I would like but when I do it is always just like old times again. Getting to a girly day out with my daughter is always a treat too. It was interesting to see the Tate modern although I will have to admit I was pretty puzzled by what is classed as art. It was great to see some of my favourites like Picasso and Monet there though. What can I say, it was an amazing birthday, I hope I don’t have to wait until next year to do it again.

I decided this trip would be the perfect opportunity to wear my lovely hat from Pachacuti, despite Mr S warning me that it was pretty windy out. Just as he warned a sudden gust of wind managed to flip my hat right off my head and much to my daughters amusement, it went rolling off down the street with me in hot pursuit shouting “stop that hat” to a slightly bemused looking passerby. Anyway I managed to catch the hat and I my daughter finally managed to stop laughing. The moral of the story ‘don’t wear you favourite hat on a windy day’ or ‘always listen to what you husband says’ but i’m so not going to do that!

I treated myself to the Ethletic baseball boots form Ethical Superstore with some of my  birthday money. They are easily one of the most comfy pairs of shoes that I have ever owned and I know I am going to wear them loads. Ethletic is an ethical fashion shoe brand that make fair trade baseball boots using organic and Fairtrade certified cotton, the rubber soles are FSC certified and sourced responsibly, and the rubber is fairly traded.

Here are just a few instagrams of my birthday
