My 30th Birthday Celebration Weekend in London

It’s fair to say that I thought about my 30th birthday a lot in the lead up to it. I had lots of thoughts about turning 30, but also spent quite a bit of time thinking about how best to celebrate. It seemed like a birthday worth marking in some way, but I wasn’t sure whether to have a big party or use it as an excuse to go somewhere exciting. As it was, we left it quite last minute to arrange anything but I couldn’t really have asked for a better weekend. It also reconfirmed for me that if my twenties were about working out the things I enjoy, then my thirties should be about embracing those things as that’s exactly what we spent the weekend doing.

Review: Dishoom, London

When I’m visiting somewhere I love stumbling across new places that I’d never have found otherwise. It’s a great way to explore and makes everything feel a little more spontaneous. However, if I’ve heard good things about somewhere then I’m not going to be one to turn down an opportunity to go. After all, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush right?! When I was last in London my friends suggested heading to Dishoom for dinner and I just couldn’t resist it, despite the fact I knew it was going to be very busy without a recommendation. I’d only attempted to go once before and had been put off by the queue then, so decided that this time I would wait it out.
