Birthday Weekend - Picture Heavy

This isn't a very fashiony post as I celebrated turning 24 by camping and a trip to the zoo - although I don't know if it's technically camping if the caravan has it's own shower, cooker, and fire? I still took it as an excuse to slob around in pyjamas and hoodies though! My birthday was actually on Thursday and I was ridiculously spoilt by the women at work (which sort of makes me feel bad calling them vulture washer woman), Tom, my family, and Char who completely surprised me with a parcel.
So here's some pictures from my weekend, if you don't like animals look away now...

I've eaten so much cake in the last three days, I can already feel this keylime pie attaching itself to my stomach.

Perfume curtosy of Tom


The caravan thinks it's a boat.



I sort of expected a Wolverine to look a little bit more threatening than this but apparently they eat deer so maybe they're like the hulk.








I had such a good weekend which I've extended to today with a day off, my plan is to watch the latest Jersey shore, catch up on Towie, drink a huge amount of tea, and have a mammoth blog catch up. Oh and whack some treatment on my hair, exciting.

  2. Ah, I love trips to the zoo. Some lovely pictures, but I do have a freak-out-phobia of bears, so I wont dwell on that. Eeek.
    Sounds like you made the most of your birthday x

  7. Thank you! It seriously took me forever to find blazers that a) didn't cost a million dollars and b) didn't make me look like a dude. It's coming into Summer here so I can't really wear them anymore :(

    Anyway I can't believe I haven't seen your blog before, because it's lovely, and it seems like you had a great birthday :)

  8. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Does that mean you're a Virgo like me?! I was 24 on the 31st August :)

    I also expected a wolverine to be far scarier. Kind of makes the X Men character seem a bit pathetic - "oh yeah, I'm a superhero named after a creature that looks like a cross between a beaver and a ferret... bad guys, be afraid!"

    Anyway, excellent animal pics. Did you know there's a place in Staffordshire called Monkey Forest where you literally walk amongst the monkeys! http://www.trentham-monkey-forest.com/information.php?id_cat=1
    I WANT TO GO! x
