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.

Jumper: H&M

Treggings: M&S

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,

Ok, I realise that December is technically winter but it is weirdly mild here in London (for which I am grateful, weathergods! Don’t smite me!), which means I can still get away with wearing my favourite autumn outfit! 🙂

Coat: Monsoon

Long sleeved t-shirt, treggings and shoes: Marks & Spencer

Necklace and bangle: Accessorize

Scarf: Zara

I really do love wearing this outfit- it’s super simple (all black + colourful coat = no thought necessary), it’s comfy, it’s work or bar appropriate, and the necklace makes it seem a lot more exciting than it really is. 😀

(I’ve had the necklace for years and it is so handy, I’ve worn it to fancy events with a black strapless dress and often wear it to travel. Maximum impact- minimum effort!)

Me on holiday in Italy a couple of years ago (with an H&M cardi that I also wear too much):

Yes, I took leaning photos in front of the leaning Tower of Pisa. I would be embarrassed but the ones I took pretending to hold it up were way worse…

I like to add a little bling to my Friday work outfit just in case I get invited somewhere fabulous in the evening. (This would be more likely if my friends and I weren’t all in complete agreement that a stuffed crust pizza and a Disney film make up the perfect Friday night! :-D)

Something about the fur lapels and the metallic collar made me feel kind of 70s disco-esque. Which can only be a good thing! 🙂

It was around this time that my phone started going crazy and doing this weird thing that it seems to enjoy:

…which usually results in comedy facial expressions…
