Birthday Update

Firstly, I'd like to say a massive Thank You to everyone who left a comment wishing me a Happy Birthday, you are all so kind and these wishes just made my birthday all the more special, so THANKS TO YOU ALL!!

My birthday evening was spent in London, as we were going for a meal and then staying at a hotel near Tower Bridge.

This is me just before going out, with champagne in my mug to celebrate, as I forgot to bring glasses with us!!

I'm wearing my body con black and grey dress from Jane Norman with my Jean Paul Gaultier waistcoat over the top and patent peep toe shoes by Clarks. The necklaces were birthday gifts from my mother in law-I did not keep the Kenneth Jay Lane ones from QVC, as they weren't really 'doing it' enough for me-just as well, as I love the ones she bought!!

The back view of my JPG waistcoat!!



Brick Lane was our destination for dinner and its a great place for a night out-including shopping, LOL!! Papadoms was our restaurant of choice after I'd bought myself a dress first!!

Round the corner from the Truman Brewery is a lovely little boutique called Traffic People. I bought a lovely pink silk dress in their sale for only £15-I will do a post on this boutique and also the dress later, as its such a gorgeous place.




After a gorgeous Indian meal, we walked back to the hotel, so I could get changed into flat shoes, which then resulted in a change of outfit too, LOL!!



I'm wearing my new grey Uniqlo tee, Jean Paul Gaultier waistcoat and my Diesel denim skirt. We then had a beautiful walk from Tower Bridge to London Bridge, crossing it and walking back on the South Bank to walk across Tower Bridge. We then stopped off in a pub right by the hotel for a nightcap-or four and then headed back to the hotel.

So all in all, a lovely 40th birthday and this morning after an all you can eat breakfast, we checked out and I went to.................... the boot sale of course, LOL!!

You look incredible in the first picture- trim and terrific! Love the LBD with the brown panelling-very, very chic getup, and pearls are the perfect accessory to go with it.
