Birthday Adventures


Last week was all about birthdays.
This month Four Little Walls celebrates two years of blog life, yep, two whole years!

The 52 week challenge feels like a long time ago!

I've also celebrated my birthday, arriving at 27. Doesn't feel a whole lot different to being 26, the occasion was marked with some pretty spectacular cupcakes and a trip to a gin bar near Fleet Street.
Thanks to the sister for picking up these little beauties in Harrods ! (Fancy pants!) 
We pimped them up with some cute plastic critters and ate them for breakfast the day after. (Too full of gin the night before!)



My bestie and room mate also happened to spoil me rotten, we went to the V&A Museum to see the Pearl exhibition. Super busy but worth the queues and bustling to clap eyes on all the treasure, including some pretty impressive earrings that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor. 
There was a woman who loved her bling! 

Photo's of the exhibition itself were prohibited so instead I'll show you some snaps of the enchanting 'Travelling to Wonderland' installation I found in the museum courtyard.




Created by artist Xu Bing, the miniature land space was created around the pre-existing pool, layers of Chinese stone were placed around the waters edge to create a little landscape. As you walked around there were hundreds of tiny details, water features, clusters of mini houses, fish, farm animals and even some cheeky little people getting up to no good on their mountain ledges! 

I'd love to go back at night as I believe many of the features are illuminated with LED's , it's running until 2 March 2014 so if you happen to be in London, pop in and see for yourself !
