Party in Paradise...

Another bank holiday weekend but this time jam packed with long sunny days, lots of partying and too much al fresco drinking...our favourite way to pass the time!

We kicked off with some Friday champagne and girlie catch ups...

Got our fitness head on for a Saturday morning (more like lunchtime) jog in the beautiful Victoria Park...

Followed by a few too many ice cold glasses of Marlborough at the newly refurbished Cat and Mutton. However our favourite part of the weekend had to be the fabulous Kensington Roof Gardens One Day party on Sunday...

Not only was it heavenly to rid ourselves of those dreaded Sunday blues but the sun was shining, the beautiful people were out in force and we were high up away from all the city bustle, partying the day away without a care in the world!

I've never been to the venue before but there is no doubt that I shall be back. The setting is beautiful with three different gardens to enjoy, we spent most of our time in the Spanish Garden which as it name indicates has an amazing Mediterranean vibe. Based on the Alhambra palaces in Granada you literally feel a world away among the ornate arches, creeping vines, dusted pink buildings with vivid turquoise peeling painted doors and palm trees decorating every view. 

We also couldn't help taking a little snoop around the Tudor Garden, English Woodland and up to the rooftop Babylon Restaurant which has incredible views over the gardens and London's skyline. Sadly as there were a few too many visitors with glasses of champagne in hand, the flamingos were grazing in private, however usually they can be seen roaming the gardens at their own leisure...I literally love this place!

Anyway back to the was the perfect combination of Ibiza meets Chelsea...amazing DJs, delicious cocktails (served in watering cans), a great upbeat vibe but with a slick and super chic crowd. I half expected the party to have an underlying pretentious air to it, but I can honestly say I didn't experience a whiff of it....everyone was super friendly and just there to have a good time.

Tickets sold out on day one so it was pretty busy but not jam packed, in my opinion the ideal number to avoid toe trampling but still bursting with atmosphere and fun. We literally didn't stop laughing and dancing all day, for us Mice it was the perfect Sunday bringing back memories of fun filled days partying in Ibiza. The only negative I can say is that it wrapped up at 8pm...we would have loved to have stayed all night long but I guess that gives us an excuse to go back!

Fear haven't missed out they are holding one of their legendary Love Brunch parties very soon on 17th May...think a boozy Vegas brunch affair with far too much champagne, DJs and dancing! Check out the site here and get your tickets here - be quick though as the early bird tickets are already totally sold out!!
