The Day/Night Before.....

A Birthday Alone!


Ok so not quite alone but without hubby, which in my book is a huge thing I can tell you.

To make matters even worse I am working miles away from home and having to action a new store workshop, so I will not even be surrounded by familiar faces. I will finally get home for around 7ish only to have to set out at 5am again in the morning. And I won't get home till late tomorrow evening either..

Ok rant over.

Because I knew that I would be feeling rather rotten over the whole birthday thing I went out over the weekend and spent a few of my Debenhams vouchers. 

Heres what I spent them on:
Beige trousers £10
 These may not look that great on the hanger however they look (and feel) great on.
(even if I do say so myself!)

Trousers Topshop £5!
What a spot they were.

From £45 to £5!

I love the green colour and the trim on them.
Shoes £7
 I know they might look a little Bet Lynch but I really do need some flat shoes as I live in heels and thought these would be good with all of my black skirts/trousers.

Shoes £14
Again these are a little smarter than just plain ballet pumps

And nice and shiny too!

Dress £13
Whilst it appears a little old ladyish, I actually quite like that fact.
Plus I like the two tone effect.

The trouble was that I didn't only spend them, oops...

I also brought this:
Reduced Primark Dress

But it was a bargain at £5.

And I used my last boots no7 voucher along with a few points to buy this;
You can never have too many red nail varnishes!

But it did work out free!

Oh well everyone needs a pre birthday gift. 
Don't they???

And tomorrow on my actual birthday I shall be as happy as a sandman, promise!
