Another Birthday came round, who cares that I’m another year older? I certainly don’t, I still feel the same as I did at 11.59pm on the 4th January. Age is just a number after all, it’s how you choose to live your life that matters and who you choose to spend your time with. And for me it would involve plenty of cats, unicorns and the colour pink.
This year I decided not to have a birthday cake with candles, instead I chose to have iced doughnuts with multi coloured hundreds and thousands on top. I started off the day by having one (or two) with a huge mug of tea while still in my polar bear pjs, snuggled up in bed. With thoughts of “Oh this is the life” running through my head, I opened my birthday cards and presents from friends and family. It’s funny, every one of my cards was pink, I do believe people know me well.
I had very kindly received some money for my birthday and a few days before I’d gone shopping in the sales. There has to be one advantage of having a birthday so close to Christmas, quite a few of the items I’d had my eye on before had been reduced to half price. I’ve totally fallen in love with this faux fur biker style jacket from M&Co and would you believe I found these adorable pink gloves with a faux fur cuff on Amazon. The pink cord mini skirt was an absolute bargain at £8 from Sainsbury’s clothing brand Tu and the roll neck jumper I picked up from River Island.
I wore this outfit with my burgundy knee high boots when I met up with a couple of friends for coffee and cake on the afternoon of my birthday. Even better, one of my cups of coffee was free from collecting my 15 stars on my Starbucks card, just in time for my birthday.
I’d already decided I didn’t want a big party this year, we’d both had a busy Christmas and I just wanted to spend the evening with Adrian.
We went out for pizza and then he took me to see The Greatest Showman at the cinema, if you love musicals and Hugh Jackman I’d definitely recommend watching it. Afterwards we came home and had a few glasses of Prosecco to finish off what was a wonderfully relaxed birthday.
How will you be celebrating your birthday this year?
