oh, friday you are perfection.

in the true spirit of birthweek (a concept i introduced into my life last year whereby you extend the festivities of your birthday over as much of the week as possible) i got together with some lovely girls in london today for a blogger meet up and all around good time. i met up with hedvig and jill beforehand at the victoria & albert museum. and no, i didn't see the hotly discussed grace kelly exhibition. i didn't even look at one bloody piece of art the whole time... i just sat by the fountain and enjoyed the feeling of the sun on my back. (photographed above with the gorgeous hedvig - whose wearing: acne dress, kate kanzier shoes, ray ban wayfarers)

lounging by the fountain, i noted one negative of growing up: you can't take off your trousers and go prance around inside the fountain like a toddler (bummer).

coconut cocktail at the fabulous and seriously incredible yauatcha restaurant in london that hedvig recommended. honestly the whole place totally blew my mind - the food, atmosphere, service... it all was impeccable. i'm sure it didn't hurt that i had delightful company. plus we spotted jason bradbury from the gadget show playing with an ipad at a nearby table... i am so easily starstruck.

we held a little impromptu photo session on some poor guys door step in soho. i've got so many gorgeous photos of lots of amazing bloggers to show you. everyone was dressed so well and was so friendly and down to earth. it was so much fun to meet the girls who i hadn't ever seen (in real life) before - actually i think these are all the girls here in this shot. so, if you haven't met them before... i'd like to introduce you to carrie of wish wish wish, fiona of save our shoes, lucy of snippets of shiny thoughts, and olivia of my new favourite thing. more on all of them, as well as the other regular lovelies, soon...
p.s. i'm wearing topshop headband (yes, again - you seriously did not want to see what my hair looked like this morning - this is my go-to accessory now for bad hair days... i'm heading back to get one in every colour), sunglasses, and harem trousers, j.crew reindeer antler sequined t-shirt, gap re-invted cardi, and yellow espadrilles from some random american shop (which my mom has too! - remember mom?)
