It's my Birthday...

April is my birthday month and this year I'm 28. Robert wanted to make my birthday special, so he planned a whole day in London for us. He booked us both tickets to see Disney's The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre and made a reservation at The Sartoria on Savile Row, Mayfair in London.

All ready for London. 

We live really close to London so we are able to jump on the train and in 40-45 mins be in Central London. Which I personally love because we get to do all of the fun things that London can offer without living amidst the hustle and bustle of the capital! Robert had booked tickets for the matinee so after a chilled morning at home we decided to head to the train station.

I really love anything Disney related and so I was super excited to go and see The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre. I have seen it before a couple of years ago and know it was a fantastic production so could not wait to share the experience with Robert. I honestly believe it is a production that you can see over and over again as it really is breathtaking!

I won't say too much about the production itself as I don't wish to spoil it for anyone that has it booked, however I do want to share with you all my favourite parts and characters within the show. 

Firstly as a massive Disney fan I have seen The Lion King 15769779707 times, so for me the production had to stick to the film as much as possible, and in that sense the show really does not disappoint. All the iconic parts and characters are present in the production and I believe that is what makes it truly magical. 

My FAVOURITE  part of the show is 'The Circle of Life' scene right at the start. The costumes for all of the animals are incredible and they join the stage from various doors and entrances and even join the stage by coming through the audience. Which enables you to see the costumes at such close range and the amazing work that has gone into creating them. It really helps immerse  you into the story from the word go and only gets better from there on in!  

I highly recommend for any Disney fan or theatre lover to book tickets to see this show because it really is worth every penny! 

Robert has booked us a reservation for dinner later on in the evening, which gave us time after the show to just have a wonder around and have a relaxed evening rather than rushing from one place to the other. The show started at 1:30pm and with the interval finished at around 5:30pm (just to give you an idea of how long the show is on for and if you are planning a trip to London you can make your reservations to suit you).  

Sartoria - Birthday Meal :)
I was actually super nervous about this reservation as Robert had only told me we were going to an Italian restaurant on Savile Row and that it was slightly posher then our normal kind of dining place. I don't know if it is just me, but I don't always enjoy going to super posh places as I feel like I don't really belong there?

Having said this though, I actually enjoyed every single second in Sartoria and cannot wait to go back again with Robert!

THE nicest Spaghetti Carbonara I've ever had.. 

How cute is this Tiramisu :)

Sorry that my photos of my food are a little dark and they really don't do them justice at all however  this was the NICEST Spaghetti Carbonara and Tiramisu I have EVER tasted. If you go to Sartoria for dinner then you should definitely try these!
I am so lucky to such a lovely husband who spoils me and makes my birthday so special. It was a wonderful day and I hope you have enjoyed sharing my day with me. 

Lots of Love
