I love London | Mariah’s birthday



I love where I live as I’m only half an hour from Central London – I don’t think I could ever live in the city, but there’s nowhere better for a day, or night out. Last Saturday was a busy one: I’d booked afternoon tea with my best friend Laura near Buckingham Palace and in the evening, we were out near Covent Garden to celebrate Mariah’s birthday! Of course, choosing an outfit and doing my hair and makeup was a nightmare, as I needed something suitable for both occasions.
What I wore –
Top: Lipsy
Blazer: New Look
Leather-look leggings: New Look
Boots: New Look
Earrings: Vivienne Westwood
My face –
Rimmel BB cream (in light)
Dior Star foundation (in light beige)
Maybelline FitMe powder (in natural beige)
Rimmel natural bronzer
Bourjois cream blush (in healthy glow)
Benefit The Porefessional
Urban Decay Naked 1 eyeshadow (from centre – half baked, smog, dark horse)
L’oreal 1 Seconde mascara
Magnifibres
Teeez eyeliner

I’m going to be writing a post about the afternoon tea, which was good. The location was beautiful and I enjoyed the food, even though it wasn’t very traditional. We were there for a couple of hours, but still had some time to kill until Be At One. Laura suggested a couple of drinks in Holborn at All Bar One. We ended up chatting to a group of guys on a stag do, which was a laugh – plus the rosé there was amazing!
Be At One was a really good night, I’d never been there before but will definitely be going back. It’s an underground cocktail bar with a constant flow of music and plenty of room to dance. Laura and I arrived early – the table was booked from 8pm until 3am, when the bar closed, but we were shown to the table on arrival, after getting a drink of course.

The cocktail menu is huge, there was so much choice. I only managed to sample a handful: strawberry frozen daiquiri, passion fruit frozen daiquiri, paradise punch, candy pants, pornstar martini and Japanese slipper. The frozen cocktails were my favourite, but they went down far too easily, like boozy slush puppies.
I had a really fab night, even though we had to leave at 11 to get the last train home. I’m sure Mariah and her friends continued to have a great time after we’d gone.
