Birthday Baubles of Delight!

Why, yes, I am the birthday girl!
And I was in fact born on Friday the 13th, so am always thrilled when my birthday falls on a Friday!
Here is a rather looong (nearly 9 mins!) video of me opening my birthday treats when we got home from work this  morning!
I didn't realise when we started that it would turn into a bit of a marathon....

For my birthday morning at work I wore:
Frock-opshopped in Sydney
belt-garage sale
Tights-Trade Me
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's, opshopped
Scarf ring-60's, opshopped
I was rather exhausted after all that pressie opening, so G tucked me into bed for a wee rest, which is where I am right now!
...with one of my new necklaces and earrings, of course!
Thank you all so very much for your lovely comments yesterday!
You perked me up no end, and I was further perked up when we decided to go and see this:
last night!
Loved it!

I also came home to a prize that I had won (and quite forgotten about) a while back on the very lovely Hannah's blog!
Lovely treats, made extra lovely by the timing of their arrival!
So I was feeling most splendiferous when I dressed my self sort of approriately for the movie....I really felt I needed a cape....
...but I couldn't find my 40's fur one (somewhere in the garage still) I went with my vintage nurses one instead!
Worn with:
Frock-fab crimplene, from sweetie Alex
Tights-retail, complete with growler eaten holey crutch
Boots-Trade Me
Handbag-gift from Justine
Necklace-from my prize parcel!
Headpiece-the very clever Claire !
Note: I repeated that slightly Victorian inspired hairdo again!
Tonight we go out for dinner, and to a burlesque show!
I still don't know what I am going to wear!
More pix to follow!

Oooh! Those boots! That cape!! Hey now! Watch were you put that thermometer, Darling! ;^) Glad you got a good pile of pressies to unwrap.

I'm such a movie slacker (we rarely go out, mostly rent them) but I need to go an see Sherlock Holmes! Yep, I've got a total fan-boy crush on RDJ... I could just LICK him for days!

Sue said...

What a fabulous birthday you had, and the lovely G, big smooch to him!! So enjoyed your video, it was like being there, and I so enjoyed seeing every gift getting torn open, non of that nancy picking delicately at the sellotape. Good for you. 3 cheers for Helga!!! Hip hip.....

Misfits Vintage said...

I laughed! I cried! I held my breath with anticipation! I clapped my hands and blew you kisses! I cheered for Super-G! It's the best movie I've ever seen!


You look, of course, SPLENDIFEROUS in both wonderful outfits (though of course I especially love the floral pink frock as I was THERE when you found it).

And I ADORE the pic of you tucked up for an afternoon nap. What a wonderful day - I only wish I were there with you. How about a second birthday in 20 sleeps???

LOVE YOU, Birthday Girl! Sarah xxx

Happy Birthday to you, happy birthdaaaaay (I'm in a Stevie Wonder phase at the moment) - hope you had a fantastical day!
Love the video, especially all the squealing and gasping and flapping, you are the most excited present-opener EVER! I love your face when G brought out the extra 3 pressies! And that tooled baG, Helga, it's magnificent. You are a lucky girl!
Beautiful outfits, SUCH a sexy minx you are tucked up in bed, and your nurse's cape works so brilliantly with your regal hair do and the headpiece (which is fabulous).
All in all - I feel exhausted just looking at all the gorgeousness and need a little lie down to recover! xxxxxx

Miss Magpie said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY you Gorgeous beast. Glad you had a fabulous day. I love your birthday outfits.

You know the 2 bits with trains in Sherlock Holmes? They filmed that here in my home town at the railway centre with fuck off huge blue screens to block out the housing estate behind! The screens completely pissed off the residents of said housing estate cos they were up for about 2 months, I found it all very amusing as I don't live on said estate. I didn't get to see anyone famous though bah.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my always gorgeous friend.

Pearl Westwood said...

What a fab birthday outfit, have a wonderful time xxx

Trashsparkle said...

Holy Feck! You wear a cape to see Sherlock - looks fab, quite see the logic.... therefore what exactly is your opinion on "outfit-appropriate-for-going-to-a-burlesque-show"???? My worst fears will be realised when you show us the pics!!!!;)

Glad you've had an incredible, amazing, lovely Birthday Fest!!!! xx

VainGlorySinner said...

Happy Birthday lovely!

You got some fabulous presents, especially all the skull jewellery, eeeek! Great parcel of goodies from Vix too!

As soon as I saw the shape of the bubble wrap that the Sleek makeup palette came in I knew immediately what it was going to be, and then I thought it has to be the Acid palette because of it's bright and colourful shades that would match your personality perfectly.. and it was! I can't wait to see those luminous shades on your eyes! Yet another reason why Vix is THE best at present giving!

I loved it when G pulled out all those presents from behind the sofa! You were like a giddy little girl! The tooled leather bag is f*cking beautiful!

It was so sweet seeing the way G looks at you, he really loves and worships our dear Helga - he's a real sweetie!

Your birthday girl outfit was perfect! xxx
