birthday antics

My friends and I dolled up for a meal in Covent Garden/Playing Articulate with drinks and nibbles/My birthday haul/Creepers and Disco Pants
I'M SIXTEEN! Finally I am old enough to drive a tractor and do a whole host of other strange things that I couldn't do two days ago! It was my birthday yesterday, the 3rd April, and I would just like to quickly thank those of you who left me birthday messages/tweets - I loved reading them! I had an absolutely fantastic day and got loads of lovely things which you can vaguely see in the photos above - I don't want to boast but I know that some people are interested in what people get (I know I always am)!
On the actual day yesterday I met some friends for lunch at Costa for a bit, and then in the evening me and my family went for a delicious meal. On Saturday, for more general celebrations, me and my friends got dressed up and headed up to Maxwell's in Covent Garden. The atmosphere was brilliant and the food even better and we had such a good time! I was wearing a skater dress from Republic and my JC Lita-esque heels which I absolutely adore.


I know this is now turning into a bit of a ramble, but in other news I've got a job! It's working as a waitress/coffee maker at a new cafe/restaurant not too far from where I live. Although I've had a training day, my first official day's work will be this Saturday so fingers crossed all goes well! I'm so happy to finally have a job and to be earning my own money - all the more to spend on clothes which can never be a bad thing ;) 


I've been so busy this week what with job excitement, birthdays and revision (kind of.. not really) I haven't had much time to blog. Hopefully I will get some more time to do so next week, and things won't be so sporadic! Until then.


xoxo
