25 going on 5: Dresses, ponies and hair!

Hey everyone! I couldn't wait to share this dress with you. I turned 25 today and have had a wonderful birthday weekend so far. First things first let me share the real reason for this post, this amazing dress. It's from Vanity Project by Limb Clothing, who were kind enough to send me such an amazing piece for my birthday. I cannot get over how amazing their dresses are, I already have a long list of ones I now NEED to buy. The dress arrived and it was love at first sight, just a note for any short people like me, I did take this up about an inch but I am 5ft (and a half) so for most people the length would be fine. This is the dress I am wearing. I think the Betty P dress is the perfect style for me, but I also have my eye on the day dresses next.

I honestly love this dress to pieces, I felt amazing in it all night. I also found the sizing on these dresses really accurate! Usually vintage style dresses are really small on me and I need to size up, but this fitted like a glove and was a UK 18. I feel the need to point out here as I keep praising them like mad, I actually approached Limb to work with them and am not under any obligation to endorse them and am not being paid for this review. I'm just really so impressed with them. This dress makes me feel like Joan Holloway minus the amazing red hair. Thank you so much Limb for being so wonderful!

My hairclip was very kindly made by my friend and fellow St George's trader By Sam Mercer. Look out for a post featuring her lovely stuff coming up soon but for now go check out her website! She's a real lovely lady and everything she sells is handmade. 

25th Birthday

Although my birthday is today, I celebrated it yesterday with friends. I treated myself to a colour and blow dry at my favourite salon Vintage Rocks. As always it was a wonderful experience and I just love being there! I had a blow dry done and although curls never seem to stay in my hair these curls stayed in all night. I really want to learn to do this myself because I loved it! I felt so glam. I also got a blue streak added to my hair - love it!

Birthday relaxing begins! At my fav @vintagerocksbelfast You'd love this @monitoress

Wahhhhh :') so cute! Cake for meee It's a good day ^_^ #nofilter #brighterthanthesun

Amazing cocktails, pressies and sushi from my favourite Belfast restaurant Sakura - and my new pride and joy from Ali, a cambridge satchel in neon pink! This photo doesn't even do it justice, it;s brighter than the sun! After dinner at Sakura last night a whole bunch of us headed to Tilt for cocktails and games. It was such a great night and it really made me so happy to be surrounded by so many wonderful friends. I was also completely spoiled with presents, spoiled!

Today Ali took me to The Merchant Belfast for afternoon tea which was completely delicious, and they even brought me birthday cake. After that, Ali took me to Build and Bear and bought me ponies, PONIES! Yes, I realise I am 25 and not 5 but sorry my love for ponies will never die. Especially rainbow and pink My Little Ponies. Ali keeps calling me a baby but he got Star Wars lego for his 25th so I think that's hardly fair! Also check out the amazing Game Of Thrones/Disney phone cover my little sister bought me, I love it! Dany is my fav.



Yum! upload

Treated to wonderful brownies from Life Is Sweet, you don't know brownies until you try these brownies.

25th Birthday

As you can see I was completely spoiled, I don't know why! I've had the best year ever with old friends and making new friends and I just love them all to bits, I can't believe they all did this for me. 

25th Birthday

Of course all the cards I got were amazing (especially Helen's, she glued together a 2 and a 5 card) but check out this pony. I feel like it's me in card form, thanks Dawniepants! Anyway - I am now off to eat more food and drink more drinks with my guy!

 Enjoying a birthday beer last night :)

I hope the huge amount of photos in this post wasn't too annoying! x
