30......its not all that bad

If you follow me on Instagram then you will know by now that I got a rather amazing present for my 30th. The Artisan Kitchenaid has been on my wish list since forever.  Its one of those things you dream about having but you don't ever expect to actually own until my gem of a husband surprised me with one.  Its the pistachio colour in case you were wondering, and yes I have used it and it has revolutionised my life, no more icing dust covering EVERY inch of my kitchen!!
The surprises didn't end there though, my best friends and sister had arranged a spa day the day before my birthday at the Fistral Spa in Newquay.  It was such a perfect present, the girls know how much I love a good pamper. Fistral Spa blew my mind, pure indulgence and VIP treatment to the max, top marks to the staff there they made me feel super duper!  We started the day off with a swim, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna and then sat down with a magazine in the relaxation room for an hour.  Then it was time for afternoon tea where I had tremendous fun sampling the teeny tiny sandwiches and cakes whilst admiring the surfers from the window (the hotel overlooks fistral beach).  Then it was time for my pedicure which involved me lying back with a lavender pillow over my eyes whilst the therapist got to work on my toes.  I didn't want to leave.  That night I had the most amazing nights sleep ever and woke up feeling amazing as a 30 year old!!
I was adamant that I didn't want a party for the big 3.0. I just wanted to celebrate with a nice meal with my closest friends and that is exactly what we did and it was perfect.  On my actual birthday we went to lunch and had a lovely crisp cold walk along the beach followed by a birthday tea party with my family, it was all very wonderful, and extra brownie points for Dylan, he made that Cupcake Birthday Cake all by himself.  I had so many lovely thoughtful gifts from friends and family which I am so thankful for. 
Being 30 is pretty awesome!

  3. I'm two years away from 30, and find it pretty daunting, but if I have a birthday half as good as yours I will be a happy lady! Looks like you had an amazing time, and so lucky to have received a Kitchenaid! It's high up on my wishlist! Dylan did good with the cake too, it looks lovely xx
