I can still remember when I was a child I always counted the days till my next birthday. Waking up in the morning with excitement and anticipation of the presents, party, spending the day with my friends and family and all the fun that was waiting for me. Cake. Sparkles. Hugs. Kisses. Oh, and unicorns! It’s pretty hard to express this in words but I’m sure you can connect with this feeling.
My heart filled with similar excitement as I was packing my gear for Lola’s big day. Getting to the Chelsea Harbour Hotel, I found myself in a beautifully decorated, enormous lounge full of lights, balloons and sparkle. All ready for her 40th birthday, surrounded with the closest friends! Some coming for this day only all the way from Nigeria! How amazing is this?! Their speeches made her night really special, bringing back all the good memories. Dinner was mouthwateringly delicious and of course there is no cake without fireworks!
The other highlight of the day was the opening dance. Lola surprised everyone with stylish masks and the party began. If you have ever been to the Notting Hill Carnival in London, you can imagine how great this party was. I just wanted to dance with the crowd. Except for the last group dance where I couldn’t really follow the steps. Haha! This performance was totally in their blood and I enjoyed every moment of it. It was amazing to see all the love and happiness spreading all over the room.
Happy birthday, Lola! May all your dreams come true, may your life be filled with loads of love, laughter and good health! Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!
