This weekend my dear friend Tom flew over from Belgium to celebrate his birthday with us in London.
We celebrated it in true style with a massive party boasting drinks galore (courtesy of Absolut Vodka), tons of amazing little frosted toadstools made of cake and presented like lollipops, popcorn a plenty and retro candy mania!
We even had La Roux do a DJ set!
Oh all right: so AnOther Magazine happened to be celebrating it's 10th birthday on the same night, and we maybe/kinda/sorta just went to that. But we did achieve the main goal of the night which was to ensure Tom's alcohol and sugar consumption reached diabetes inducing heights.
The following morning, Christopher decided we should take the train down to Southend-on-Sea.
I've been meaning to visit some of the UK's seedy seaside cities for a while now, and Southend on a pissy rainy day did not disappoint!
Here are some photos:
There was even an amazing junk shop that sold these:
