23, Happy Birthday to Me

Today is a special post as it is my 23rd birthday!
This is what I got up to today.
This afternoon we went to the Sanderson hotel in London for afternoon tea, Mad Hatter style.
We were offered a variety of tea flavours from rhubarb and custard, to strawberries and cream.

I chose apple crumble flavoured tea. I don't actually drink tea, but it tasted pretty decent.

We were then served a variety of different cakes, scones, sandwiches and quiches.
My favourite sandwich was the smoked salmon one.
The little 'drink me' bottle changed flavour from apricot to a creamy foam.
The clock cake was a little jammy victoria sponge. Lovely.
I was then surprised with this little birthday cake!
It was such a lovely afternoon tea!

In the evening we headed over to London Bridge.

We went up to the view from the Shard, which is the tallest building in London (and Western Europe I think?)
The view was amazing, and we timed it to watch the sun go down.

Overall, it really has been a 'happy birthday'.
