February is always a fun month to me – it heralds the beginning of Six Nations, and it also kicks off my birthday month!
For the first time in years I threw a party for my birthday – the theme was “Party in the USA”, and there were surprisingly no Trumps, a few statues of Liberty, a baseball player… we threw on some hot dogs, made vodka jelly, had a Spotify shared playlist so people could contribute in the run up… all in all, it was AWESOME. 🙂
I felt super lucky to have had lots of my closest friends there especially some who I hadn’t seen in six years! It made me feel very loved.
A few of us went out to the world’s worst club in Putney where we danced the night away to bad music and drank Apple Sourz. Suffice it to say my old age didn’t not survive that hangover well but the polaroids are something I will treasure forever!
The following weekend, however, marked an even more exciting weekend – it was my actual birthday but that wasn’t the reason for my excitement.
My alarm was set for four am, I whipped up a little welcome banner and hopped in the car with Mum and Dad to head to Heathrow arrivals, eagerly awaiting the arrival of my brother and sister-in-law… and my twin nieces who I hadn’t yet met. Seeing them for the first time and getting those first cuddles is a memory I’ll treasure forever!
I also got to meet up with two of my all time favourites for a swift drink – Abbey and Hels! They both gave me the cutest birthday presents, they are the most thoughtful pair and I can’t wait to feature and use their lovely gifts! Thank you so much ladies!
Later in the month, Hels and I took a little trip to Kew to visit the Thai Orchid Festival – her post here, and mine here
And I saw out the month of February by hopping on a jet plane and undertaking the first travel of 2018 to Iceland to celebrate one of my favourite peoples’ 30th birthdays. I’m so excited to share my latest travel adventures with you!
I’m really sad to be saying goodbye to February – its been such a special month with getting to meet the Twins. I’m already planning my big travel adventure of 2018, and I’m sure it’ll include a little stop in Singapore!
How was your February? 🙂
What an amazing month for you, and I’m so glad I got to see you TWICE! Bring on many, many more dates!
The photos of you and the twins are absolutely gorgeous, and it was so lovely that you went to surprise them at the airport! I love all the Polaroids from your birthday party too.
Can’t wait for all your Iceland posts 💙
Love you xxx
So much going on – I don’t know how you do it all!!!
Gorgeous pictures xxxxx
It sounds like you had such a wonderful month, February for me personally wasn’t the best so I’m happy that it’s over and done with. I hope your March is as good as your February babe and I can’t wait to read all about your travels this year! Thank you for sharing 🌸✨

Such an amazing month for you. Must be so special to finally meet your nieces.
So glad to hear you had a good February. Happy belated Birthday! Seems like you made lots of lovely memories last month. Februaru went quite fast for me and had a couple of nice memories too. Your birthday sounds like fun and it must have been great to meet your nieces.
Sounds like February was a very good month for you and happy belated birthday if we didn’t greet you already! That’s so nice that you met your twin nieces for the first time, they are adorable! Thanks for sharing your great month of memories!

Hooray for a fabulous February! I’m so glad you had such special birthday celebrations and got to catch up with some old friends, I’m sure those Polaroids will be something that you treasure forever! I still have the Polaroid of you and I before we went to Hels’s wedding in my purse, it’s so cute! I can imagine the total joy of those first cuddles with your baby nieces, they are both absolutely adorable! I hope you’re able to see them again soon! It was lovely to spend some time with you as well, fingers crossed we will be able to meet up in March and April too! Another great thing that you did in February was to knock out a whole load of brilliant blog posts, round of applause from me on that front!!
P.S. I can’t believe I forgot to say it: “Great post! Thanks for sharing!” 😉
It sounds like you had a really great February! That is so exciting that you met you twin nieces. My sister is about to have her first baby, and I can’t wait to be an auntie! I hope you had a fab birthday 🙂
