Last weekend saw me head down to London for an afternoon of nostalgia and partying at The 90s Brunch (a pop up brunch) to celebrate my BBFF’s (that’s Best Blogging Friend Forever) Lela London‘s birthday!

Now as a child of the 90s, I was truly elated about re-living what was probably the most awesome of decades ev-er – with everything from music to film, fashion and A lister romances (hi there Kate Moss and Johnny Depp) making the 90s rock.

I miss watching The Prince of Bel Air on repeat, my only problems revolving around which club my friends and I would be partying at that weekend and which boy I fancied most-and in these rather turbulent times, revisiting the decade defined by Cool Britannia and Cool Power was food for the soul.

Zig-a-zig-ah!

Channelling my inner-Sexy Spice (Geri was always the most kick-ass of the Spice Girls in my eyes), I headed to Clapham North to Fu Manchu Bar. Every fortnight a new party is thrown at a secret location so you only discover where it is a few days before. What a party. And when I say party, I mean PAAAAAAAARTAY!

It may be a daytime event kicking off at midday, but don’t let that fool you. With bottomless cocktails for the first hour, I was busting out the Macarena with Lela and her friends on the dance floor before long and partying like it’s 1999.

In between a 3 course 90’s inspired Chinese lunch, we partied to Britney, Ricky Martin, TLC and more. I never wanted to leave.

Michael, Lela and Colin. Colin Rivera has his own band and is moving to LA soon. You know when you meet someone and think, ‘This guy’s gonna be famous-I predict that for CR).

The day was so fun, it reminded me of the parties I used to throw as a teenager – fancy dress galore, inflatable props and karaoke madness.

They host The 90s Brunch all over the world, so make sure you head to their website and find out when the next party in your neighbourhood is taking place. I want to hit Dubai next! Come on Lela, get your inflatable donut and let’s go!

Post-brunch, I headed over to the 5* Royal Garden Hotel, whom I have recently started working with as their resident family-lifestyle blogger to meet my good friend and business partner Jessica Huie MBE for an early dinner.

Check out the sunset views from my cab.  London you beaut, you make my heart sing!

After a good ol’ girlie catch up (we were chatting so much we actually forget to take a pic together), it was down to business, and while tucking into the most delicious halibut, we got to discussing our next Turning Passion Into Pounds workshop.

Taking place on March 9th, this inspiring workshop (mine and Jessica’s third) is about giving you the motivation and insight to turn your hobby into a commercially successful business. Tickets are selling fast so make sure you get your’s soon on the British Library’s site!

Like Jessica, one of my personal passions is helping others to become digital entrepreneurs so I left the dinner feeling inspired and excited for what’s to come, as I made my way back to Kings Cross and back up north to see the fam!

There really is never a dull moment in London.

    I think the 90s were the decade that influenced me the most as I was a teenager for most of it and in my early 20s at the end. Seems like ages ago and just yesterday at the same time! The party looks like a lot of fun! #brilliantblogposts

    That looked like such a laugh. My wife went to a similar 80s event recently. Would love us to have the opportunity to go to a 90s one to celebrate our long lost youth! #brillblogposts

    Take me to a 90’s brunch party now – it sounds amazing! Ah, I feel nostalgic for those carefree days of watching Friends (for the first time!) and seeing Geri in her Union Jack dress at the Brits. What a brilliant idea. #brillblogposts
