In The Mood For

{celebrating my birthday this Saturday}

When I was younger the days leading to my birthday were lived in excitement and anxiety and I would be eager to debut the new clothes my mother would prepare for that special day. Until today I haven't lost the feeling of great anticipation towards the celebration of life and I still insist on the tradition of wearing something new on that day. Tomorrow I'll be forty-one and although I had higher plans that fell through I still feel very grateful for what I have accomplished until now - for my loving family, some good friends that truly like me despite my flaws and my adorable readers that keep me going through their inspirational and supportive comments. Today the never dying child within me, is jumping with joy, because the cake smells deliciously and tomorrow there'll be a new pair of boots awaiting me! ;)I wish you a lovely weekend! I'm in the mood for...

{getting ready for a major cut for the first time}

{getting the table ready with a DIY project to welcome my guests}

{Chanel Les Beiges Bonne Minne Sheer Colour - my newest favourite -  nº30}

{a new pair of boots bought 50% off - I love finding great goods at greater prices!}
