These blog posts all seem to start the same way, but on Saturday, I hopped on a train to London for another Aussie party, then a variety of tube trains – thanks TFL for shutting down everything out of Paddington except Bakerloo – and then another train to St Albans, as I was staying with the lovely Sarah (who didn’t force me AT ALL to say that) We had some lunch, then headed back to hers, picking up her friend Sha on the way. We all got ready in Sarahs room – its been such a long time since I got ready for a night out with other girls! Back on to the trains and tubes, and we ended up in Thirst with Lil and Christina. If you’re in London, I definitely recommend Thirst. Strong cocktails for less than a fiver!
The award winning (hee!) Vanessa stopped by to say hi, which was a bit more exciting that I let on. She is one of the most awesome people on Twitter, and her blog is such a great read – I was so pleased when she won a Cosmo Blog Award last week!
We went on to the venue (battling through crowds of tourists, the horrors), the Century Club. A lift took us up to the rooftop where we were met with the above – some Aussie “hunks” with glasses of champagne. They kept us well watered and fed with much champagne and yummy nibbles constantly being shoved in our faces. (A good thing too, because if there hadn’t been so much food, we would have been a lot more drunk! As it was, yeah, lets not talk about that)
There was an area set up where you could get your hair, nails or make up done – I had my hair done in curls by a chap who was apparently on the Great British Hairdresser (can you tell I don’t really watch much TV?)
It was a seriously fun night, lots of chatting to EVERYONE, and even some dancing (I fully blame Sarah for this)
Thank you Holly at Aussie and Sarah (both above!) for such a lovely weekend. More drinks and dodgy dancing again soon, please!

Looks like a fab party ;)
Yo. Posing Aussie “Hunk”. You ain’t all that. I like my men to be a little tubbier (HA, husband is a waif.). Now give me your hoodie, since you don’t seem to want to wear it.
