"And breathe . . . ."

So the dissertation is finally over! It was printed, bound and handed in on Monday a few hours before the deadline! phew! What a relief it's over and my holiday can begin! I felt that a commemorative photo was needed:

Looking very casual country chic with my gingham dress, but gold popping accessories (pumps, bangle) and accompanied by my green eyed dog brooch. The completion of the diss means that I can finally tidy (and clean) my room and start the renovation process.

Also have to mention a certain incident that was wedged inbetween last week and this, the birthday. Thankfully the weather stayed nice for my af
ternoon soiree with family and then dinner and cocktails in town. The country/1950's theme started with a blue gingham dress:

After which, a quick outfit change into a fitted coral applique dress with origami detailing:

So a succession of 1950's outfits that wouldn't look out of place on the Mad Men set! And I can't let the birthday posting pass without mentionning my amazing "Ace of Cakes" cake, made by my lovely mummy and sister! A true masterpiece:

Two little ducks for my 22nd birthday, daredevil ducks hanging off wires and Geof, my frog prince.

"It's my party and I'll cry if I want to!"

This might be the case if the dissertation is not finished by the weekend! But my tutor is back (and answering my many questions) so hopefully it will be done by the time my Birthday rolls around on Saturday! Another year older and so much wiser, well maybe not.

The only way is up!

Here's hoping anyway! the dissertation is still ongoing which is restricting my movements but have been out of the house. . . . . . . to have driving lessons! oh the perils of being on the road, well for other drivers anyway! Seems to be going well, especially the manoeuvres like reversing and parking!

Attended belated birthday celebrations for a friend at the weekend and the sequin dress got another outing, mostly due to how comfy it is (and of course how gorgeous it is!)

(sequin dress, ruched leggings, block heels, coral bangles)
