A very vintage hen...

My lovely friend Sarah is getting married, and so yesterday a big group of us went out for the day to celebrate. We started off at Drink, Shop & Do near King's Cross - I'd heard loads about it but had never been, and it was brilliant! We had tea and cakes and we made fascinators with ribbons and buttons and netting. It was great fun and a really good hen do activity as it got everyone talking and it meant we all left with our fascinators on, looking like a hen party, but a fairly classy hen party! 

The tea and cakes were lovely and they were really generous, and the Bellini cocktails were fab.

And here's the fascinator I made!
Then we headed to the park for a picnic - yep, yet more cake and fizz! We also managed a fab celeb spot, as Kate Moss and Jamie Hince walked past with their dog! 
And finally, after a bit of glamming up, we went into town to the Firefly bar, which hosts the Saturday Night Swing Club every week. The bar is spread over three floors and in the middle is a room dedicated to dance lessons - every hour you can just show up and they'll teach you the basics, and then you can go off and dance away to your heart's content! Everyone dresses up in 50s gear and members of the London Swing Dance Society show up every week - which is brilliant because you'll be dancing away and suddenly a proper bona fide swing-dancing man will grab you and twirl you around the floor and make you feel like you can dance really well! It was so much fun.
