birthday brunching.


a couple of weeks back i met some of my favourite ladies for my birthday brunch at dandelion & driftwood. it's a favourite place of mine and with a menu that reads whoopie pies, candyfloss cupcakes and some of the best coffee blends around, it was a no brainer. it was a beautiful but breezy morning and of course i brought my favourite photographer along to snap some of the decadence. just a heads up that i couldn't resist posting a bucket load, so be prepared. thank you to my beautiful girls that made it that day, and to those who couldn't be there (because of work, london or paris commitments), you were there in spirit. these photos help explain why i think my 28th year could quite possibly turn out to be the best one yet. have a lovely week.
