Two gals + one birthday (21 again) + one sensational hotel room with pampering = a birthday extavaganza!
As a birthday gift to Helene I offered to make her look fabulous and take her photo. I wasn’t sure if she’d think it was a great present or me being a total Terry Tightarse. Thankfully she thought it was awesome (phew!). So I introduced her to the amazing make up artistry of Andrea at Shu Uemura (just to make sure she was feeling really ace) then we trotted off to the Blackman hotel to take some snaps.
Helene was really excited, and a little nervous (feeling a little older having just reached another birthday), but quite frankly, this lady was made for the camera! Look how fabulous she looks.
Topping up on the new lippy from Shu Uemura…. nice.
What a great way to celebrate your birthday, having your photo taken in all your fabulousness. I couldn’t think of many things better. Until, after we’d sat down to snack on some cheese and crackers, popped a bottle of bubbles, it came to us.
We should behave like rock stars and jump on the hotel beds! so much fun, (and a tad exhausting when you are turning 21 AGAIN).
