Accidental Ombre

Hello Lovely Peeps, it's been a while! How the devil are you? What have you been up to? I've been having a rather crazy couple of months......some of which I'll tell you about today and some of which I'll tell you about over the next few weeks.

Last time I was here I was just about to have my hair extensions put back in by the wonderful Amber......well they're in and they're fabulous......


......I did attempt to dye it a bright red using Live Colour XXL: Red Passion.....


......as you can see it's not really turned out the way I had intended but I'm quite liking the accidental ombre I seem to have achieved! The curls took ages to do with my brand new green peacock GHD's (my wish list worked!) but I decided it was worth it for my birthday night out.

We went to Groovy Wonderland in Loop Bar which I loved (I had my birthday there last year) .....I'm mean whats NOT to love? 70's and 80's music, light up dance floors, my fabulous friends and the most beautiful cake ever.....


.......it's just as beautiful on the inside too......


......as made by the talented Louisa, plus four bottles of my favourite champers (Laurent Perrier Rose just FYI) turning up from a secret admirer! All in all I had an amazing evening and was thoroughly spoilt.

Now you may or may not remember that I've decided to enter into a one hundred day shopping ban which I was dreading but it's turning out not to be too bad.......this may have something to do with the aforementioned spoiling. You see I got given some brilliant presents for my birthday including a Selfridges gift card which let me go a little shopping crazy without actually spending any of my own money and therefore, I think, not breaking the shopping ban! Heres what I got....


......a rather gorgeous Michael Kors watch. I've wanted a chunky watch for a while now, the last watch I owned was a slim Gucci bracelet style I've had since I was twenty which is currently on an extended loan with Small Girl Type Creature.



This is one of my favourite perfumes ever and it turns out they are planning to discontinue it....le gasp! I will just have to go back and stock up on all the bottles they have left!


These rather stunning shoes are by Kurt Geiger and I love them, I actually saw Amber wearing them and decided I needed a pair all of my very own. They are surprisingly comfortable to wear but they really don't mix well with rain and cobblestones........I have the scars to prove it!


You may recognise these gorgeous lovelies from my birthday wish list (see I told you it worked!) I haven't worn them out as yet but I have a few different outfits planned for them.


Whilst I was in the Topshop concession in Selfridges buying the above shoes these grey lovelies also caught my attention and I had to take them home!


Last but most definitely not least I got myself the Mulberry Daria bag that I've been lusting over for years!


Of course I needed to get the matching wallet too!


As I've said Im not including any of the above purchases in my shopping ban so I'm also not including the shoes against my New Years Resolution of only eight pairs bought this year (good job really I've only got three pairs left!). So yes I've definitely had an amazing birthday this year, I'm a very lucky girl.
