This time last week it was my birthday! Birthdays are my favourite times of the year. For me I view it as the start of the new year and technically it is! I know so many people who view their birthday as a day to dread, they forget that this is their very own personal new year. I don't know anyone who views new year as negatively as people sometimes view their own birthday. Birthdays are meant to be full of joy, excitement, celebration and cake. Lots of cake.
I have somewhat of a birthday tradition - my mum and I go shopping! When I was younger clothes shopping was something to be treasured. It wasn't something as a commonplace as it is today - we only ever really went shopping for clothes on birthdays or Christmas. So even though now that I'm older and shopping has become a widespread phenomenon is my family's household - it is still very magical to me.
This year we were quite restrained and didn't buy the whole of Oxford St. I am trying not to buy things that will bore me too quickly - instead trying to choose things that I will want to wear forever. I think this jumper counts as one of them. I know I have a gazillion turtleneck jumpers already but this one is different. It may actually be my favourite. No, it is definitely my favourite. The oversized neck, colour and overall slouchy, comfy feel to it just makes it a joy to wear. Kind of thanking the weather for being so out of whack that I can get some good wear out of it before I will have to retire it until the Autumn. The best part - it was on sale.
If you want to see more of what I bought and also what wonderful people gave me, watch the video below :)
