On the last weekend of February I had my first Hen Party. Being an International Woman, I’m being treated to a few!
My Edinburgh-based bridesmaid, Helen, organised a really fun weekend with all of my favourite local women.
And of course in my typical style, I Instagrammed a lot of it! Above is the cake that Helen put together – in my favourite shades, with a fabulous drunk Ariel on top. Hilariously, as I’d curled my hair on Friday night, my hair did end up resembling her on Saturday morning…
What’s a hen without a few penis marshmallows?
We spent Friday night playing Mr & Mrs, where I ended up drinking shots or taking forfeits, and as I got drunker, I got more answers wrong.. and you know where this is going.
By the end of the night I was too drunk to sit upright, and ended up being very gently put to bed. I was not a well woman in the morning.
But after a bit of sleep and some heavily-applied makeup, I was ready for part two. Afternoon tea at The Tower restaurant! Swanky. We were also joined by wee Elsie:
And I like this shot of me and Charly:
Then we moved on to Paradise Palms, which is actually a pretty awesome joint. We had an excellent waitress and after some fries, I started to feel pretty good. We were also joined by a work friend for a drink or two and played some dirty Pictionary (Dicktionary!) invented by Charly. She has an impressive knowledge of terms I’d never heard of.
After a wee bit there, we moved on to Las Iguanas for an amazing Mexican feast.
And then, karaoke! Finally, we ended Saturday on the dance floor.
Sunday we topped off the weekend with a very late brunch, where we were joined by another wee baby pal, Meriel.
All in all, it was a fantastic weekend and I felt very special. It was so great to have my favourite women join me for the silliness and chat.
