Some Nails, Outfits, and Faces Of My Birthday Celebrations

Hey Guys

Apologies for my mini absence but I've spent the last two days celebrating my birthday :) - I was 34 yesterday can you believe that!! - About 10 years ago I would have thought that 34 was ancient - not now though funny that lol. Anyways I've taken a few pics over the last few days of my nails, make up and some outfits so I thought I'd share them with you :)

First up nails - I wanted a nice neutral polish that would take me through the two days no matter what I wore so I went for this one

Nails Inc Porchester Square is described as one of their hero shades and I can see why - it's a gorgeous mousy, greige shade that was just about perfect in one coat :)

Nice isn't it ? a great colour for when you just don' know what to go for :) Next up outfits :) on Monday night I went out for a meal with one of my besties Dawn, we went to the Chiquito in the nearby Metro Centre - I love Mexican food, and they always have gluten free options on their menu -even better there was a promo on which I believe runs from 5pm every weekday evening where you can get 2 courses for £9.99 each bargain :) We had a really nice meal and then popped round the shops for a little while, where I bought a couple of bits with Mummy Lou's money lol I wanted to wear something smartish but comfortable so I went for this :)

What I Wore
Indigo Jeggings - Moda at Asda
Nude Vest - Top Shop
Dual Fabric Navy Blue Shirt - Next 
Nude Patent Ballet Pumps - Atmosphere At Primark
Gold Tone Circle and Oval Hoop Necklace - Cyprus
Floral Ring Stack - Peacocks

I also took some pics of my make up they didn't come out fabulously well because of the lighting conditions - hail !!! it's MAY!!! - anyways it's not that interesting anyone I just went for something really neutral and believe it or not I wore the same make up yesterday and on Monday x

I love the blouse but I'm not sure it's that flattering on me the shape of it makes my hips look massive - never mind 

So that was my birthday in nails, face and outfits, I had a lovely couple of days and I was well and truly spoilt rotten - I'm not sure about doing a birthday pressie haul for obvious reasons so I'll leave that up to you - if you would like to see some of the goodies that I got let me know in the comments xx Thanks for reading and I hope you've all had a great start to the week xxx
