{cake & candles}

Had mentioned in passing that it's a week of celebrations and today is the first -- getting ready for tonight's plans, for today is my birthday . . . Will be back tomorrow with more lovely things to share.

Have a beautiful Wednesday, everyone!

Hope P spoils you rotten and looking forward to hearing where he took you out to celebrate :-)

PS - go on - take a picture of you outfit (or a a part of your outfit for the evening :-).

Let me guess ......mmmmm..... way too high skinny heels, a dress in black or muted tones ( designer of course) I think - or (maybe pants beacuse its cold there.) diamond studs or pearls ...and hair?

out or up ? Cant decide.

I think down ( or half up half down) - lads always love hair down :-)

Happy birthday and many hugs to you:-) :-)
