My 31st Birthday 22/02/12 Day One of 5 day birthday week! London Zoo, Gel Nails and the Waldorf Hilton

Hello Lovelies,

This is my second attempt at writing this post as for some reason I had scheduled it to post itself at 7pm yesterday and nothing happened and blogger deleted it? great!

So here is my first post about my 31st birthday day which was 22/02/12 I sure don't feel 31 at all, but I guess with a bad back I sure feel it some days. 

I did something for each of the 5 days so I shall be positing more about what I got up to and anything which might give you a good review on places to go and deals to purchase!

On Wednesday 22nd February I went to London Zoo in the morning, as I havent been there since I was little and being the biggest animal lover I know I thought it would be a lovely day out.

We managed to get an off peak travel card after 9.30am so that cut out some of the cost and because we had bought that, we managed to get two for one at the zoo too.

After the zoo I had a 2.30pm appointment to use a Wahanda voucher I had pruchased for gel nail extensions.  The voucher cost £18 instead of the usual price of £45 so it was a bargain, and I am extremely pleased with my nails. 

Once my nails were looking lovely we then looked around town and went to Liberty's which I don't think I have ever been too before.  We looked at the make up counters and my favourite Bobbi Brown but I opted for a Dermalogica skin care set which was a really good price.  Dermalogica is my favourite skin care brand!  We then popped to Abercrombie and Fitch in Savile Row, if you haven't been there before you must go you can smell the fragrances wafting through the street as you turn the corner!  We then had our Polaroid taken with a male model (he wasn't as nice as the last one we had a few months back)  The photo of the model and me is below. 

After a mooch around the shops we then went to Covent Garden and made our way to the Waldorf Hilton for a 3 course dinner and champagne.  This was another deal we had purchased from Groupon, it worked out as £18.00 each.  The food was lovely but the service wasn't that great they rushed us through each course, and when we were ready to pay we had to stand up and wave at them to get they're attention.

I shall list all of the links to the deals I purchased for my birthday treats below so that you can keep an eye on the many more posts that are coming. 

It really has been another great birthday to remember, with great friends and being spoilt.
I hope you enjoy this post! :-)
