I am officially one year older today than I was last year, even though I feel like I'm still in my twenties - don't know if that's a good or bad thing, but least I feel pretty great and besides, age doesn't scare me at.all.
When you arrive into your 30's it feels like there's a bit of an expectation of you, that you should be married, have children, own property or at least have a high flying career...
Somehow, although these things are all very important to me, I have learned to let go & realise that things in life do not always go to a certain timeline and that life marches to the beat of your very own drum.

I'd be the first one to jump around and stomp on the balloons if I were in a room like this!
Being a winter baby, as much as I'd love a beach style al fresco lunch or dinner with friends, I'd happily settle for a picnic somewhere with a warm blanket, good wine, good food and great company.
A birthday celebration is not a celebration until you're with friends and family. I'm really looking forward to landing on British soil soon and being hijacked by my friends for some serious good times, hugs & laughter!

There'll be plenty of eating, talking and most likely drinking! Can't wait. (Cue me squealing with excitement!)
So today, I'm going to be celebrating life! I am truly blessed & grateful to have a great family, Mr. Perseus, fab friends (that includes you blogger buds too, y'know?!) and good health.
I have also been blessed with the greatest gift of all, so I'm extremely happy.
Today I want to wish you all a super stylish and sparkly weekend!
lots of love,
