My Birthday!

Well its that time of year again, kid going back to school, students back to uni, leaves turning beautiful jewel colours and my birthday!! Hurrah!
The best excuse for cocktails!!

The day started off with a cake that had been rescued, by my husband, Indiana Jones style from the local sorting office as we had missed the van by two minutes!

Clearly I’m very young!

The cake is vegan, as I’m sure some of you know I don’t eat dairy or eggs, and its a delicious Spice Apple flavour! From Baby Cakes Direct .

And here is my outfit for the evening; I think I need to face up that I’ll never be a fashion blog- I always forget to do outfit posts- hence this one in the toilets at Obsidian! Top and skirt both Mode Merr from PinParade and belt from Reiss. Nails are the free Mavala Elle Red in the September issue of Elle. Well impressed as lasted 4 days without chipping!

And here is the killer cocktail that we all ended up having (after my brave friend Clippy was the first). Here is the description from the menu;
ABSINTHE WITHOUT LEAVE – We take five different rums, including Appleton VX, Sailor Jerry, Goslings and Wray & Nephew Overproof. Shake with pineapple, orange, lemon and passion fruit and strain into an absinthe rinsed cocktail shaker. Sounds crazy, it probably is! We have a house limit of two per person, nobody goes AWOL on our watch!”
Er, well we didnt go AWOL exactly but I literally have no more photos from the night- I guess that means we had a ball!
My hangover preventer- I have one of these before bed, and I’m not too bad in the morning!!

    Happy Birthday – Autumnal birthdays are great – mine’s nearer Halloween though. Was a digit on your cake really missing, or is it just a cunning ploy to keep us from knowing how old you are?

    That cocktail sounds seriously dangerous!

    I love rum but sounds eye wateringly strong!

    Happy birthday!
