Birthday Girl.

Top - New Look 
Skirt - River Island
Boots - New Look 
Tights - M&S  

I turned the grand old age of 23 on Sunday! This is what I wore on Saturday when I went for some drinks. I wanted to feel dressed up a bit but not too much as it was only a pub outing. There are close up of the boots when I last posted them. They were much more comfy with the addition of insoles, so hoping to wear them more now. The top I had been after for a while after seeing it on the New Look website. I never saw it in my local store or the Glasgow one I found it in Bristol. The button was missing off the back so managed to get 10% offI will do a post (or posts) on my trip to bath once I have got all the photos together as some are on my boyfriend's camera.

Ring - Accessorize
Necklace - birthday gift

When I found the ring I needed it as I enjoy owls and cameos so it's mean to be. I thought it was really unusual as well. The Alice in Wonderland  inspired necklace was a gift from my friend and I love it so much! I don't know where she got it from but if anyone is desperate to know I can find out. The detailing is beautiful and is a working watch too. Think she was trying to tell me someone about being on time ;) 

These are the first outfit photos I've taken on a self timer as I only have a tiny desk sized tripod but to get the background I like then I need to use my bed and boxes. I thought it was fine until I looked back and some photos were blurry and very squint. I want to figure out a way to get better shots using a tripod. I don't have a remote either. I don't think I can get one for my camera as it is only a compact. Anybody got tips for make shift tripods or tips for taking self timer shots?


  1. Happy belated birthday, Christine! Have you tried looking on the JOBY camera accessory site for a tripod? you can get small ones for compact cameras. there's all kinds on there. the site url is joby.com - hope it helps x

  2. I love this outfit and your jewellery's cute :-)

    1. Thanks. Now noticed that the box the necklace came in says Regal Rose on it so it must have been from there!

  6. This outfit is adorable. Hope you had an amazing birthday! I used to do my photos with a compact camera and I tended to try and find a solid surface I could just place it on (bins, shelves, trees, anywhere) then run backwards and forwards checking the photos and altering the settings till I got the best one xo

    1. That is pretty much what I try to do but seems to take so much longer than when someone else takes them for you. I think it's something I just need to try to practice and hope to get better.

  7. Oh wow, what amazing photos!!! So lovely!!
