Birthday Weekend

Helloo lovelies, Did you all have nice weekends? 
Well it was my birthday weekend and i had a lovely time. It would have been a bit better with a tad more sleep but it was still a lovely weekend. My poor son was still teething and ratty and my step son had croup till 2am one night then coughed consistently till 4am Saturday night. Poor thing seems to have a chest infection. BUT everyone stayed well enough for me and hubs to leave the kids with my mum and go out for a fancy-pants meal. I had a few glasses of vino and we had a wonderful time. The next day my sister and mum took me to Frome to a vintage market. I was in my element! I could have wandered the wonderful cobbled streets for hours, unfortunately the weather was against us and poured down the whole time. But i managed to snap up a few little lovelies as a few pressies from me to me.
However, the only outfit i managed to snap was my birthday-day which was hairdressers and a few errands. I took the plunge to get my hairstyled in a way i've wanted for years, and i LOVE it! 
I haven't had a fringe (bangs) since i was about 10 so this was a big change and i was so happy with the outcome.











Jeans & Blouse :Very
jacket: Newlook
Shoes: my fav as you can prob tell by the amount i wear them: Seychelles
Bag: Next

This is pretty much straight out the hairdressers. I very much doubt i will be able to re-create this...ever!
You know me by now, the perpetual messy haired mama :)

Here's a few snaps from my birthday weekend:
Beautiful vintage bears that i could just not leave in the shop

vintage knitted bag

fantastic street band in Frome

Hubs and i before going out for our meal

In the fancy pants restaurant everyone wore black/grey or silver.. i wore this... and loved it.... never one to blend in

new shoes


aww handsome hubby.. scrubs up well!

Well thats it in a nutshell i guess. I had some wonderful pressies, beautiful jewellery sets, 2 wonderful dresses, Marc Jacobs perfume (from my list, yay) and some other bits and bobs. I felt very lucky :)
We also put up the dec's and tree.. more piccies to come.
Hope you've had a lovely weekend all!
Rachel
