4.2.13



well - I can't believe January has gone.. why does time go so quickly..

a week today I will be 30..

i have mixed feelings about it - age is just a number - time does and cannot stand still, nor would I want it too.. I love getting older, I feel more confidant and without question I know myself so much better now. I don't have lists of what I want to achieve, I don't have regrets about what's been and gone - it's all been a journey.

But it's still 30.. but it does seem a little too old! sigh

I have no idea how I'm celebrating - Oli is planning, or not planning.. I'm not sure which! and as a control freak this is not a nice feeling! I know there should be a dinner - I don't know if anyones been invited and I have no idea where!

What I do know is that in 15 days I'll be heading to New York and one of my favourite girls - a birthday treat to each other. I am so excited! We've been once and fell in Love - this time I want to go and get to know it a little better.. Any tips would be amazing! From food, to galleries, walks, parks, bagels and Burger's!

Hope you're all good.. I'll be back

  3. Went this time last year and been aching to go again! Try a little stroll along the high line (http://www.thehighline.org/) if you didn't get round to it on your first visit. Have a great trip!

  5. So, somehow I totally missed that it was your 30th!! So sorry, I hope you had an amazing day! What did you end up doing? I agree with you about the getting older thing, I used to hate it but now I really embrace it, I love the confidence boost you get from knowing who you really are and the feeling of learning more and growing wiser ;) ha! True though. Regarding New York, I have been a few times and fall a bit more in love with that city every time I go... I would recommend going to the top of the Rockefeller Centre instead of the Empire State building as it has way better views - and you get to look out AT the Empire State! Amazingness. xx

  6. I just moved to new york and I would recommend checking out Brooklyn, it is full of wonderful bars, restaurants and fun little places to shop. Also try the upright citizens brigade for comedy, the sidewalk cafe on a Monday for a weird and wonderful open mike night, the lincoln center for plays (if you sign up under 34 year olds get in for cheap) and the moth for spoken work/poetry... and just wander around downtown... or see art in the museums... there is so much to do

  7. I must confess, I usually yawn through holiday snaps but these are completely gorgeous, I took in every single one! A belated happy birthday to you. I have age-related mini-meltdowns with every passing year and hate myself for it. I really look forward to reaching that stage of wisdom and confidence that seems to come with age though. Chloe x
