Wednesday, April 28
Thank you all for your birthday wishes, I had a fantastic long weekend of much celebration and indulgence. I don’t feel any different, there are no extra lines on my face (believe me, I looked) or white hairs on my head. I don’t have any sudden wisdom. I definitely have no wisdom when it comes to stopping on the cake/food/booze front. Ah well, I’ve got a whole year to learn my lesson, no? I feel content though. This birthday has shown me that I have many super awesome friends spread far and wide and I can’t wait to spend another year with them all.
I took inspiration from a picture in an unlikely magazine with this look. I’d never thought to pair this sombre grey tweed with a punch of colour but I really like it. The brown accents instead of the usual black belt make the whole look a little less serious too. Maybe it’s because I just finished season two of Mad Men but I’m feeling a little Mad Men-esque in this ensemble. I guess any tailored dress feels that way now.
You’ll have to excuse my eyes. I’m not hungover or have hay fever, it’s a weird thing that happens every so often. I’ve been to specialists and doctors and all kinds but we can’t figure it out. So bear with me for the next 3 days or so.
I had a super great time at my birthday dinner. It’s my second birthday in a row at Dos Amigos and it’s just so cool. I was really happy with my outfit too, I felt exactly like I wanted to.
We went up to Mary Cairncross Park on my actual birthday. It’s so beautiful up there and was so great to spend time with Mum. I got so much cool stuff, I'll be sure and debut it in the coming weeks. I'm one lucky kid alright.
