It's official. I am an adult. But does that mean I need to start acting like one? HELL NO. To celebrate my descent into the dark side of my twenties (aka my 28th birthday) my pals and I partied Bollywood style in the Bank Holiday sunshine. 

We attended an Indian Summer themed festival ran by The Shanta Love Club whose top secret experiential events are as fun as they are fantastical. Armed only with a 'ticket to ride' we draped ourselves in sari's, jangling jewels and bundles of bindis before boarding a coach which transported us from Hackney Wick to a magical woodland wonderland.

In amongst the trees we twirled around to the amazing live acoustics of The Wax Collection and danced the night away to everything from Tiesto to TLC in a marquee littered with stuffed tigers, enchanted tree trunks and even a cardboard VW Campervan.

I'd love to disclose the day's debauchery but what happens at Shanta stays at Shanta. Instead I'll simply say a MASSIVE thank you to the Shanta man dem sugar who made it a birthday I can just about remember and never want to forget.

Are YOU all over a bit of themed fun an' all???
