It was my birthday yesterday and also the warmest spring day London has seen in 5 years. I choose to believe that these are connected events. G planned a whole day of fun including a horseback riding lesson which was a dream come true. (Literally – I have dreamed about horseback riding since I was a kid and now I’ve finally experienced it!!) I also received messages and birthday wishes from near and far which only reminded me of how lucky I am to have the best friends and family in the world.
I’m back at work today but have birthday plans all weekend so the party isn’t over yet!
In the meantime…
The Health Edit: Birthday calories don’t count (it’s a proven fact) so I’ve been indulging in pizza, popcorn, candy and cookies to my heart’s content. Can’t stop won’t stop!
The Book Edit: I finished After You by Jojo Moyes and, though I had hoped the critics were wrong, it really didn’t compare to Me Before You which was disappointing. Today I started reading Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham. It’s half autobiography and half behind the scenes of the filming of the Gilmore Girls reunion so should be fantastic!
The Screen Edit: After patiently waiting for the new season of Elementary to make it’s way across the pond (and then missing it when it started showing here because I never watch commercials anymore and then forgetting which episodes I had and hadn’t already seen) I finally managed to download season 4 and I’ve been happily binge watching ever since. Johnny Lee Miller as Sherlock is entirely different than Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock but they’re both amazing and wonderful in their own ways. I also really love that the US version has a female Watson and the dynamic between Miller and Lucy Liu is great (as is her hair!) Highly recommend if you love Sherlock, drama, comedy, wit or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The Beauty Edit: I went for my first Biologique Recherche facial at Liberty on Monday and a full write up will be on the blog soon!
The Blog Edit: It’s my birthday week – I’m out and about enjoying the celebrations!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend 🙂
