it's my party and i'll cry if i want to..

dress: phase eight (birthday gift!)
heels: primark
bracelet: cutey jewellery (giveaway win)
I'm having a rather lovely birthday. Well, it's been a fairly normal day at the office, but was preceeded by an early-morning panic trip to buy icing sugar to finish the cake I was taking into work with me (as is tradition).

This beautiful Phase Eight 'Rosie' dress was one of my birthday presents from my sister - I've been admiring it for months now on the website, so was very excited to open it indeed! The bracelet was a prize; a little while back I won in Emily's giveaway. It's a Cutey charm bracelet and I was so pleased when it arrived, it's got a cute little tortoise charm on it which couldn't be more perfect. I hadn't worn it yet but decided the colours in the charms would go nicely with the dress. Thank you Emily!

I haven't got any birthday plans as such - haven't really got time for any as these next few weeks seem to be so very full, but I have put together a (very) little giveaway in honour of my birthday, which I will be posting before the end of the day!
