Happy Birthday to me!

So, yesterday I turned 30! My boy took me out for a lovely day around town. We started off at Cafe Boheme on Old Compton Street for a spot of lunch, pan seared Sea Bass with wilted spinach and a glass of champers then weaved our way through Soho towards Oxford Street to hit the shops. I was on a mission to find a dress for my party on Saturday night, but it being the summer sales, I was hugely put off by the crowds plus it was peeing it down. I wasn't being my usual self and I couldn't find anything, everything I tried on made me feel, dare I say, older!? I know 30 is not old but it's the first landmark birthday that really hits you. My search for eternal youth took me to American Apparel (there is nothing like mingling with leggy dancers in skin tight outfits to make you feel closer to youth and vitality). I wanted to get a fierce and sexy dress and it came in the form of their 'Cotton Spandex Jersey Tube Dress' a steal at £22.00. Despite being skin tight its actually slimming and lengthening as its a block of colour. Being so risqué with the style I decided to play it safe with colour and went for black. I've got a gorgeous nude silk, floaty floor length shirt to put over it with massive nude heels. Red nails and lippy will be the icing on the birthday cake. Later in the evening we decided to hit the town again, this time in our native North London, we popped in to The Southampton Arms for a swift Cider and Roast Pork Bap then went on to the main event, Argentinian Rib Eye Steak at Camden's La Patagonia. Needless to say I'm heading to the gym this evening to try and get into that dress! Dress images
