Happy 16th Louise!


Saturday was my Sister's 16th birthday (lady gaga above) so we had a fancy dress party. It's actually depressing how much taller she is compared to me! Almost everybody turned up which was lovely as everyone made the effort to dress up a little and just generally be there! The weather stayed okay all day. We was all really surprised it didn't rain! My Mum dressed as Marilyn and my Dad was Bob the Builder (even played the theme tune when he walked in after changing... hilarious!). There was Woody from Toy Story, Anne Boleyn, Wonderwoman, Katy Perry, Greek goddesses and loads more! There was even a Smurf family but I'm not sure I'm allowed to put their pictures on here so you can just imagine two adults and two children walking in painted blue with a blue t-shirt, white trousers and the white Smurfs hat.. SO FUNNY!

Had a really good night though and was even treated to a BBQ the next morning/afternoon as a way to "get over the hangovers". Too much cider but all for a good cause...of course! ;) I'm also allowed to finally reveal that me, my Mum & Sister have tickets to go and see Jessie J in March. It was a surprise from my Mum to both me and my Sister however I had to book them so I of course already knew about them. Jessie J is literally the biggest inspiration to me ever! Her whole album got me through "the break-up". Amazing what music can do!

P.S: Well done to Lucy for winning my customised Levi shorts giveaway! I have emailed you!
