After spending 27 years of my life and never having had Afternoon Tea, I have managed to notch up two in one month! This time it was for my lovely friend and mother-to-be Sophie Jonas’s birthday. I’ve not known Sophie a hugely long time, she is a designer, and we met in December when I was modelling some of her creations in a fashion show. After that, she asked me to be a Brunch Belle at her monthly Burlesque Brunch, which involved me swanning around in not much at all, entertaining guests who were tucking into a full English before some real burlesque starlets put on a show. It was enormous fun, and I hope it continues after she’s had her baby and recovered!
Here are some examples of Sophie’s creations! Possibly NSFW…depends on where you work! They’re all in my Fashion Shows folder on Myspace.
Anyway, her partner Andy wanted us to come to tea as a birthday surprise for Sophie, and a lovely day was had by all. After tea we had a wander down to the Thames festival and came over all touristy! I have never done some of the touristy things in London, even though I’ve lived nearby all my life. We also stumbled on the set of Dorian Gray! Here are a couple of pics, you can see the rest on my Flickr.
