A LITTLE BIT OF LEOPARD!

Sorry for my lack of posting and blog commenting, it was my birthday on Friday so I have just been enjoying the festivities (expect a couple of haul posts soon). I had a really nice day, the lovely boyfriend went out to get croissants for breakfast, before presenting me with a dress from Romwe that I really. He then took me shopping for a few extra treats and then for a lovely Italian meal in the evening. We finished the day off watching The Woman in Black, which is a right fright-fest, and after all those Harry Potter movies, I have finally realised that Daniel Radcliffe is a good actor after all - he has the most wonderfully expressive eyes.

So anyway, this is what I wore for our little shopping trip, just a simple jersey dress, statement tights and my old faithful Converse.

Dress, Boohoo - same here.
Tights, Topshop - similar here.
Belt, H&M - similar here.
Necklace, PunkyPins - same here.
My old faithful Converse







 Even though my boyfriend really made my day buying me some gorgeous wedged trainers, I still felt myself being a little down in the dumps after the day. When people you consider good friends don't take ten seconds out of their day to wish you happy birthday, or make even the slightest effort it can leave you feeling quite lonely.

So anyway, how was everyone's weekend? Wasn't it just heartbreaking for Andy Murray? Still I was so proud of him and I'm sure the best is yet to come!

    1. Thanks Laura,
      Doesn't it suck, it makes you wonder why you bother - but I will still do the same though because I don't want to change just because someone is selfish!

    It sounds like your boyfriend spoiled you! x

  11. Sounds like you had a lovely birthday with your boyfriend, don't let your friends get you down, a couple of mine are still supposedly 'in the process of buying' me a birthday present almost 2 months after my birthday! :P I might have to give the Woman in Black a try although I'm quite a wuss with scary films...
