There should be exceptions made for every birthday girl right? WRONG! Well, I couldn’t let you guys down and so with a little bending of the rules I managed to make this vlog!
If you were watching my snapchat you’ll know I was struggling to think of how to throw a fun birthday party. The weather was pretty dire in London and so I asked my lovely cab driver for ideas:
Me: ‘What are the chances it will rain this weekend?’
Cab driver: ‘100pc’
Me: ‘Right. Well, What do you think I should do for my birthday?’
Cab driver: ‘Throw a pool party’
Laughing it off at first, he began describing the scene and in my head I started conjuring up this incredible pool party with all my friends.
Cab driver: ‘You’ll need good music, lots of drinks, food and people’
This got me thinking, ‘Where in London could I find a huge pool indoor and outdoor (heated of course ;)) that we could have to ourselves?’ Quite the challenge but I’m no quitter! By the next day I’d found the perfect location and sent out all my invites. To my surprise (it was father’s day and quite far from London) most of my friends said YES!
Only two problems:
1. The location is exclusive to members only. Not a single one of us (20 in total) were members. This meant running the risk of being thrown out and my party plans coming to an abrupt end. Just imagine the embarrassment for a second.
2. There was a strict ‘NO PHOTOS, VIDEO OR SOCIAL MEDIA’ policy?! Yikes! As a blogger and YouTuber this is akin to opening a pack of Starburst only to find out they’re all yellow and there’s NO pink/red ones!
I won’t give away the rest of the story as you’ll have to watch the video and find out. But its safe to say: Rules are there to be broken and this Ipanema girl with her inflatable pink Flamingo has no intention of growing up anytime soon!
