Eight. Oh.

Spent a busy weekend in Newcastle seeing family and celebrating my grandmother's eightieth birthday with a family dinner at an Italian restaurant. It was so lovely to see my cousins and everyone; I don't get many opportunities to go up and visit these days, especially since I work on a Saturday so don't have a full weekend spare normally. Thankfully I managed to bag this one off work, got my hair cut (it was getting out of control, I was finding it hard to see out of my left eye due to the size of my fringe, haha) and sped up the the North East ready for the celebrations!

The necklace I have on here is one of the items I bought from my one and only time shopping at Forever 21 (in Dubai), and the ring is also from Dubai - from one of the silver souks in the old town. The stone is amber, and I absolutely love it. It doesn't have a smooth finish, and there is tiny bugs and a mosquito set inside it, which I just find so amazing!

  5. Love the cake. I think is so emotional to print a picture of a person as a baby and then in his actual age. It's so strong to me.

    Anyway, nice hair do!
