Guess what? Yesterday was my birthday!!!!! yeeeeey!! I find it super cool that my birthday and my daughter's are only nine days apart, if only she had hold on in there a little longer LOL.
I'm now officially 29 years old, a year shy from the dreaded 30 *deep sigh* Goodbye sweet twenties I had blast, wish I could be turned into a vampire and stay 29 forever now that would be awesome except for the part about drinking peoples blood ewwww creepy LOL (currently watching Vampire Diaries season 3, so far so very Good!!) random. Otherwise I have no regrets, I didn't blow any candles I think that would have been one too many candles on the cake LOL but I did make lots of happy wishes and lots of Thanks giving prayers, God has been good to be over the years and am very thankful! I celebrated very low key as usual...got treated to lunch at Serena by a good friend, she and the boyfriend who is out of town had been working on my birthday all week without me knowing and I always know haa! it's not easy to surprise me LOL and am usually terrified I may not like the surprise (am a control freak and a bit OCD sometimes can't help it) so this was a sweet surprise and I absolutely loved it...Thank you Beatrice and Rey for making my day that extra special and for everyone who took time to wish me a Happy Birthday all over the social networks I appreciate the love...
|I got these beauties sitting pretty on my desk...|
|Cake Cake Cake...deliciously soft, moist and crunchy just the way I like it.|
Note to self: always take outfit pictures BEFORE eating NOT after an all-you-can-eat-buffet especially when wearing a dress like this hahaha I was sooo full sucking it in was impossible!
|I'm wearing: Dress ~ Thrifted (Old), Shoes ~ ALDO from Viatuzi, Watch ~ Montine via Emirates, Leather studded Cuff ~ ebay Lookbook store, Handbag ~ VJ Collections|
I have been saving this dress for a special occasion and it doesn't get any special than my birthday hahaha! I loooooooooooooooove this dress!! the beautiful mustard yellow colour, the gold buttons and the very Victoria Beckham cut ooh la la it's just super chic and classy with the buttons adding a hint of edginess! Now if I told you that I got this dress from Tandika, in perfect condition and for less than one thousands TZS about two years ago would you believe me? because that would be the honest truth, I really really love my cheap thrills treasure hunts...the gold buttons are in perfect condition not scratched or faded at all! and I have it dry cleaned to make sure they stay that way...Here's a little tip, no matter how cheap you bought something give it the care it deserves, if the label behind says dry clean only then by all means dry clean it,even if dry cleaning ten times more than the dress it self which is usually the case with me hahaha.
Because my dress was already loud on it's own with the bright yellow colour and the gold buttons and the fact that my hair extensions are super long, I chose to keep my accesories very simple with only my watch and my chunky studded cuff and black pumps...no earrings or necklace. as much as I love being a bit over the top sometimes, there's a thin line between over the top and just plain tacky!
Happy Long Weekend!
