My good friend Herlene tried to organize a lovely surprise for me for my birthday. Because she wasn’t in the country for the actual birthday, she wanted to plan a brunch in a fabulous location  and surprise me with makeup and photography for my blog (she fancy! Y’all know my makeup on here is usually self-applied. This occasion was the first time I had worn eyeshadow since Carnival!)

Well I’m too much of a control freak for that which Herlene soon realized and revealed the whole plan to me when she figured out that I would need to direct this whole photoshoot action lol! But still it was a wonderful birthday gift and I think the pics from our girls brunch truly communicate that. My friends Nichola, Hannah and Joanna all joined Herlene and I in the shenanigans. Many of the pics were actually not blog appropriate because they featured our faces contorted into different (horrible) facial expressions, so deep and juicy was the old talk.

We went to Dianne’s Tea Shop in Maraval, a recently opened emporium for those who appreciate leisurely brunches, high tea (scones! clotted cream!) and quality time with friends. (Disclaimer: We intended to get pics of food as well but greediness took over and all the dishes were half finished when we remembered! Nobody wants to see a half eaten brunch.)

All who know Dianne’s DH Gift Shops, won’t be surprised that she has also filled her tea shop with lovely imported snacks and small items to immediately make any home chicer. Dianne deserves special mention for having the patience and grace to let us photograph all throughout her gorgeous reflective white and silver space. Thanks Dianne!
