Good morning guys!
Today is the day after the birthday and waking up 26 to be honest feels a little weird.. Yesterday I had the commotion of cake, presents and celebrations that I didn't have much time to actually think about it. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm
Not saying that 26 is old; I just don't know how I even got here! This year has been a whirlwind for me full of changes. I moved to Dublin, started a new job away from all my family and friends, I met someone who brings me unending happiness and im returning to college for a masters in September!
Hopefully 26 will bring change and even more happiness!
Enough rambling, here are some pictures of my day!
So firstly I got the best present off my family- you might have remembered me drooling over the Kenneth Cole Watch from Winters Jewellers in my last post? Well now it's MINE! I can't wear it until I get links removed but I love it so much!
I then hopped on a bus after the Bonniconlon show down to Galway to spend the day with Daniel!
You probably know at this stage that he got me a Nespresso for my birthday it's a gorgeous powder blue I love it! I've already drank 4 cups..
His Mum had banners all over the house and gave me a gorgeous gift-
It was weird not being at home for my birthday but I was in my second home so I had such a lovely day!
Next up I got all dressed up for part 2 of Daniel's present- Afternoon Tea in the House Hotel Galway! I had considered going to the G but it's just a bit far out and I wanted to be close to town! I love the House Hotel it's so girly inside and the staff couldn't help us enough!
Everything was so delicious!
Now the most important thing- my outfit!
So as a tradition I began myself I ALWAYS get dressed up on my birthday. It's the one day that it's all about you and know one can hate you for it so I really milk it! Last year I wore a green suit & changed to a tulle skirt that night. This year I raised the bar and went full Princess. Feck it.
The tiara was bought on ASOS about 3 years ago, it's actually really nice if you wear it flatter down with your hair up!
The Tulle Skirt was made by Jane & the ladies in the Ballina Costume Company, it's the skirt of my DREAMS! They can make them to order just contact them!
The bag is old ASOS, shoes are old Zara, sequin cape us Penneys from about 7 years ago- I've looked after it very well! And the tshirt I picked up in h&m!
I finished the day off with Prosecco & a movie as the weather was too horrible to go out in!
Anyone turning 26 and freaking out- don't worry! Age really is just a number all that matters is being surrounded by people who make you happy, and maybe the odd finger click diva moment for more Prosecco.. It's allowed on your birthday!
Til debt do us part,
^^^ yes, my name isn't actually Polly!
