It's my birthday tomorrow but as it's a weekday I decided to celebrate over the weekend. I had a fabulous time eating and drinking in Cardiff with some of my favourite girl friends, it was great to see everyone, I'm so pleased nearly everyone could make it ^_^

This cocktail is called a zombie. They don't tell you what's in it, they set it alight and you're only allowed two in one night, which is kind of scarey but it tastes amazing!

Today I'm going to Cardiff to spend some time with The Boy. We're gonna get sushi! Om nom nom. It's kind of a birthday tradition, not that we ever need an excuse to go for sushi though.

Check out these beautiful photos taken by Nick Tucker for Lisa Redman.

My good friend Terri works for Lisa Redman so I get to see a lot of the company's press. I'm always impressed with how elegant and flattering the collections are. There is so much attention to detail in every item of clothing. Swoon.

Birthday Treat

It's my birthday next week so I bought myself a little present.

Isn't she pretty?!

So Here's the Deal...

It's been quite a while hasn't it? I did only intend on taking a week off from posting but that kind of turned into a 'few' weeks; I just got out of the habit of blogging and into the habit of studying. Don't get me wrong, it hasn't been all hard work and no play; I've done quite a few fun things this past month that I've wanted to share but when I sit down at my desk to do anything other than study the fear kicks in and I know it's time to hit the books. I feel slightly guilty that I haven't posted in a while but I've come to the conclusion that I enjoy studying just as much as I enjoy blogging but obviously studying is far more beneficial. Therefore, I won't be posting as often as I have done in the past but I won't totally dissappear off the radar either. It's all about the happy medium, but isn't it always?
