This is a bit of a photo diary post for you. I had my birthday on Wednesday (26 on the 26th ooh er!) so I thought I’d share my day with you.
Here are two of my favourite cards from some family members…they know me well!
I borrowed M’s Lauren’s Way rollers for the night so that I could give them a go. It was an interesting experience putting rollers in my own hair. I’ve never done it before as M is definitely a lot faster and its easier to do someone else’s hair but wooooo, it took me over an hour to get them in mine! It was a big struggle as I’m blessed with a considerable mop on my head and needed so many rollers, plus it’s so long at the back I couldn’t actually reach the ends of my own hair! But I got there in the end and managed to put up with sleeping in them too which surprised me.
It wasn’t exactly comfortable but the rollers squashed enough that I could sleep if only a bit restlessly.
It didn’t curl my hair which was disappointing but I had lovely bounce and volume for the whole day and it was nice to have that ‘just blow dried’ look all day.
I treated myself to protein pancakes for breakfast, there were two of them so I smothered them together with Nutella and put a banana on the side for good measure and an extra energy boost for a busy day of shopping.
I met a friend who I’m planning to go to Thailand with later on in the year so we could make a few more travel plans, catch up over lunch and a cheeky birthday cocktail and go shopping.
This is a Jamboree Daquiri….lots of rum and berries and it was TASTY. We teamed it with a gorgeous home made fish finger sandwich and super crunchy fries and it was yummmm.
It was a lush day and although I didn’t buy much I did have my brows done and wander around Debenhams browsing all the make up (specifically Benefit, Mac and Urban Decay). It wasn’t long before we needed a pit stop and a frappuccino was the best idea ever, cold and sugary for a boost of energy!
I was an extremely lucky girl and was spoilt by my family.
I knew I was having the nude Dune handbag and Levi jeans as I’d already chosen them myself but the others I didn’t. My mum had sneakily chosen me a Michael Kors black satchel handbag which was an amazing surprise and I can see it becoming a firm fave!
I also got a full size bottle of my perfume, a Ted Baker pencil case, Naked 3 palette (eek!) and some gold Havaianas which I cannot wait to wear.
Every year we get a Colin the Caterpillar cake for our birthdays and this year was no exception so I have been tucking into pieces of that over the last few days.
We went out to a Pan-Asian restaurant for my birthday meal and it had such tasty food, the table set up was lovely too. Are you good at using chopsticks? I’m normally fine but was far too hungry!
Last weekend me and M went out with another friend for my birthday. There was lots of dressing up and getting ready before we went to a bar for cocktails.
M definitely enjoyed herself on the dancefloor! We were pulling some ‘shapes’ as I’m sure you can imagine!
It’s been a great week and I’ve got so much more planned. I went to Cabot circus with my mum on Monday, had a training session with my personal trainer, and to finish the week off, today me and M checking out a new eaterie in Cardiff and watching the new Captain America film. Cannot wait to see more of these films; I’m such a sucker for a superhero film!
What have you been up to? Do you have similar activities and rituals for your birthdays too?
Do you like my presents?
