Fluffy1

It’s Friday!!! 😀

I wore this fluffy lilac jumper for birthday drinks with my friends last week. It’s very warm (almost too warm) and I was a very popular hug candidate in it, which is always nice! As it’s a bit more cosy and shapeless than what I usually wear, I paired it with as much bling as possible to glam it up.

Treggings: M&S

Booties: Zara

Bracelets and rings are all old.

My friend bought me the starry dangly earrings about 12 years ago and I still love them and wear them all the time. And the hearty Vivienne Westwood earrings were my birthday present this year from my bf.

The necklace (aka my new favourite thing) is from Claire’s Accessories and was a gift from my nieces, as I mentioned last post!

Facebook has started doing these little slideshows of the photos on my phone at the top of my feed, which really annoys me (I’m constantly terrified I’ll accidentally upload the most recent batch of “do I have back rollies in this?” mirror selfies that I’ve just taken at any given time) but I thought the fading effect of these pictures was cool!

My nails are painted in gel varnish from Avon, and it’s really good! It goes on very smoothly and lasts a long time before chipping. 🙂

My friends totally spoiled me! I had a homemade cake, a store bought cake and an inflatable crown! (As well as presents!) It was a great night. 😀

(Although I have made it clear that I do not want the same style of cake next year- I’m keeping that number on the DL!)

This was the cake after the meringue numbers collapsed and it was given to me backwards, so instead of ’29’, I am now officially ‘P smooerrsh’.

My rubbish attempt at taking a car selfie in my inflatable crown. Bow down b*tches!

BDAY6It’s that time of year again- the time when the lure of presents and my horror of becoming a grown up wage war against each other, leaving me a conflicted and confused bystander.

So far however, the presents are winning! 😀

BDAYYes, it’s my birthday today and my adorable nieces, who share my affinity for all things colourful and sparkly, gave me this box of jewels hand picked by themselves from Claire’s Accessories. (Not entirely by themselves, I hope. Being 5 and 3 years old, I’ll assume my sister was there with them. And that she paid.)

Anyway, how spoilt am I?! 😀 I decided to wear the most blingalicious one today, in honour of my agedness.

BDAY2

I also wore my tiara  (so sue me, I wear tiaras on my birthday! And on Oscar night. And my nameday. And whenever I wear a robe because that makes me feel crazy glamourous. And sometimes just when I’m feeling blue.) for breakfast but took it off before leaving for work. 😦 Now that I’m old, I have to conform to society’s interpretation of what makes a person seem “normal” and “sane”.

Harrumph.

BDAY NAILS

I painted my nails for NYE, in Ciaté’s Raspberry Collins with a layer of Rom-Com Rouge red glitter over the top. It’s not the most mature, but I like it!

I’m at work today (grr) but going out for dinner tonight (yay). I’ll probably change into what I wore last Valentine’s Day for that, as it’s funky and I can wear my most stretchy trousers with it. Steak and cheesecake here I come!

Happy New Year everyone! Here’s hoping 2016 is the best yet!

Love,

2015 charms

Every year, my parents bring my sisters and I good luck charms for the new year. This year we all got the above bracelets and the little gold pendants with the tassel, both of which I love! In Greece, the New Year’s Day tradition is that each family buys a cake (a Vassilopitta), in which there is hidden a coin or a charm (or sometimes both!) and whoever gets the charm in their slice will have good luck all year. This year my eldest sister won (she always wins…) the pendant on the right.

In other news…..

It’s my birthday today! 😀

I’m at work so am wearing a black top and black treggings (my base for about 90% of my outfits), with my M&S leopard print soft jacket with power shoulders.

Birthday leopard(Ok, they’re not mega power shoulders but it’s my only item of clothing with shoulderpads so I feel very 80s in it!)

LEOPARD

I was wearing emerald green earrings when I left the house this morning…

…but then I met one of my best friends for lunch and now I’m wearing these gorgeous earrings (that happened to match all the other jewellery I’m wearing today perfectly!) instead….

(Both pairs of earrings are from Sublime.)

I have a really good feeling about this year actually (ok, I say that most years but I really mean it this time!), I think 2015 is going to be a good one! 😀

Happy New Year everyone!

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!! And to stave off the horror of turning the ripe old age of 27 I am wearing:

-A tiara. Obvs. (Although technically I am not wearing it today as I am at work and, allegedly, a grown-up. I did wear it all weekend though :-D)

-My BCBGeneration bracelet (previously seen here)

-A very bright pink shirt (no one’s ignoring me today) from Express in New York, which was an amazing shop with H&M-esque prices (and everything was 40% off the day I went so I bought a million things!)

-My trusty M&S treggings

-My short-sleeved Monsoon jumper which I like to think adds a dash of Clueless to all my shirts

-A gold leafy hairband that I got for my birthday (which arrived with a big sign on top telling me that I’m going to see Beyonce in March! Woo, thanks guys! It later transpired that my genius friend had accidently cut said sign out of what she thought was a scrap envelope but turned out to contain her brother’s university degree! Oops.)

-My new glittery shoes from Office that I bought in the boxing day sales

-Mid-life crisis: model’s own

Hope you all have as great a day as I intend to!
