happy birthday Susie + my first ever outfit post!

Today is my friend Susie's birthday, and last night a bunch of us went out for a birthday meal for her in Soho. It was thoroughly splendid. We went to the newly opened Giraffe, and partook in all the cocktails in the world. I had the most delicious homemade lemonade which was served in a mason jar - lovely! The food was divine: falafel burger with sweet potato fries, nyom nyom, and afterwards we obviously had birthday cake. I'm a bit sad that I didn't get a photo of it.

It was yet another Vixie creation, consisting of three layers of rich chocolate cake, with layers of choc chip fudge brownies and frosting between each of the cakes, framed on a silver plate by Tunnocks teacakes with sugar animals on top of them. On the very top of the cake, though it was already pretty tall, we had angel flame candles - whose flames burn the same colour as the candle! This was the highlight of the evening - though it could have been because of all the alcohol that had been consumed - and everyone was amazed at the green, pink, orange and blue flames! Plus the cake was pretty good too.

As it had been absolutely ages since I had been out socially, I was pretty nervous about the whole thing. But Susie is a good friend and I didn't want to let her down, plus it was up to me to bring the cake, so I had to be there. It turned out to be a really nice little group of us, and once I was there I was completely OK. The thought of going to these kinds of things is always much worse than actually going, and I did end up having a great time, even with people I hadn't met before or hadn't seen in ages.

As I don't have any pictures of the cake, the only other thing I can share with you is what I wore - woo, first ever outfit post! But I'm doing it a little differently, I'm afraid: I thought I would do a "what I wore vs what I wish I had worn" type thing, so here is my first ever (kind of) outfit post:

Glad you had fun. Was good to see you, even if only for 1 minute.

Hahaha, I couldn't find any nice trousers so I just left them out ;) but I would have made quite an impression, non?

It was lovely to see you too. Longer next time, please x
