I didn't have a party or anything huge like that, but I did cook pancakes for breakfast (both savoury and sweet), watched the Bourne films, played Scrabble, built a Lego helicopter and ate Japanese food out in the evening. All the things I love.
So, after that recent post of all the things I wanted, I did indeed get some money which I managed to get a ton of stuff with! I got a new pair of shoes just like I wanted. I found the perfect pair of red brogues. I am absolute sucker for lace-ups and should to do a photo of all my pairs at some point. I actually have oxford heels as well, but you will not see them in the blog because I rarely wear them. I buy them because they are beautiful and then find out how uncomfortable they are. And then I just admire them for a few years before giving them away. These new red shoes are similarly uncomfortable with newness but I will put up with the bleeding for looking so splenidiferous.
I also got four scarves for my birthday! Four. My neck will never be cold again! One of these is featured below, and I intend to show the others in upcoming posts.
And, as I wished for on my list, I got Lego from both my boy and my sister who know me so well. I haven't had a chance to photograph them yet, but I will. I also got a tea set from his parents, a new Dianna Wynne Jones book and lots of dvds. Pretty much spot on. :)
This is what I wore on my birthday, doing that childish thing of wearing all my new things at once.
|I adjusted the colours here a little to make the jumper accurate. As I commented last time I wore it (in a ridiculously similar outfit) my camera refuses to get it the right colour.|
|One of my new scarves and my spare glasses (I feel weird with these on but they match my red theme)|
|I also bought myself some nail varnish from Topshop. Been after a brick red colour for ages.|
|New shoes! Shiny shiny brogues from Salt + Pepper|
|Coordinating these pops of red everywhere again. After my last post where I had so many nice comments on my engagement I also feel it is legitimate to share the ring again.|
|My dinner. Nom nom. I only thought of taking photos a few minutes in, so there was a lot more than this. Oh and Andy had food too! It wasn't just me. His hasn't arrived yet here.|
|Miso soup. Mmmm.|
