New York City - Part 1

12th December - I spent my birthday up in the air! I was jetting off to NYC, aka the Big Apple and the city that never sleeps! A second surprise was revealed at the airport as my sister approached us in the departure terminal- she was coming with us, such a fantastic surprise! After 8 hours of aeroplane food (surprisingly edible) and lots of inflight entertainment, the thought of a comfy hotel bed was looking better by the minute. But my third and final surprise was revealed once our taxi drove through Manhattan and it was revealed we were headed for Greenwich Village. Woop Woop, excitement levels pushing through the sky at this point!

Pre-Birthday Celebrations

Sunday the 9th of December, my family and best friend had all come round for a relaxed Sunday afternoon. Little did I know what they had in store for me. My Dad gave my a birthday card to open early (my birthday being the following Wednesday/12th). Encouraged by everyone goading  'open it now!'. Inside was a folded piece of paper and a birthday message from my Mum & Dad.

 I unfolded the paper to reveal the shot below. I was going to be flying to New York for my birthday, gobsmacked is the first word that comes to mind. An the second is tears, to say I shed a tear is an understatement I was balled over. My family had pulled off a surprise of a lifetime. Alas this was the first of many surprises to come, (all to be explained in a later post). Champagne and corn dogs were top of the menu, because we all were in need of celebration!

Florence + the machine

Firstly happy new year to you all! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and started your new year with a bang! The past holiday has flown by in my eyes, but then again it always does. (Sob!)
So I'm just going to briefly fill you all in on what I've been getting up to this December, as I sadly haven't had a moments rest to write any of the many posts I have in the pipeline yet, so keep your eyes peeled! 
December was kicked off by a trip to the O2 arena to see 'Florence + the machine',  an amazing gig to say the least. I was surprised by my family and friends with an early birthday dinner as it was later revealed I was going to be spending my birthday in New York City (surprised beyond my wildest dreams). Then wrapping up December by spending Christmas surrounded by family and friends. Whilst eating and drinking (a little too much), it really was the perfect end to such an incredible year. I just can't wait to see what this year has in store. 
I'm so excited to share with you guys what I've been up to in more details (and lots more photos). I just want to thankyou all for taking the time to follow my blog and keep up with my ramblings.. So thankyou!
I want to make 2013 the best year yet, so let the adventure begin!
