Giveaway details at the bottom of the post!
My birthday and Valentine’s Day are really close together. I really wish they weren’t! Chances of getting 2 presents two weeks in a row, pretty slim. We’ll see what Valentine’s Day bring this year but my birthday weekend was great! I got a grapefruit cupcake from Ms. Cupcake at Greenwich Market. Fantastically sweet and sour at the same time!

My husband took me for an amazing lunch at Hakkasan Mayfair. I got a black forest martini. Martini’s are my favorite cocktail and this one tasted like cake!
New Special at Lola’s for February, (gutted I missed the January Toblerone) Black Forest. I wasn’t really blow away with this one. To me it tasted like their chocolate cupcake but just with a cherry on top!
Some of the best scrambled eggs (and decent American style pancakes) at The Cabin Bar & Grill in Chiswick (recently relocated from Fulham) for a birthday breakfast with my friend.

Now on to the good stuff! It’s the dead of winter and to help with the winter blues CSN and their really fabulous office furniture site are sponsoring another fantastic giveaway.
