oh, Its my Birthday!!!!

Hi Lovelies,

Oh I have had a beautiful couple of days.

We celebrated with the family on Saturday Evening and I must admit that I had maybe one glass of bubbles too many! But we were having soooo much fun, and our neighbours came out to play too, so it wasn't just me!

You do not have to know me too well to know that it only takes a couple of glasses of wine to make me drunk. I blame it on being short, obviously! The alcohol doesn't have anywhere to go.

So it was a slightly jaded Jools who departed early yesterday morning for the journey to Babington House in Somerset.

Well a Birthday AND a Wedding Anniversary definitely calls for it to be a Chanel kinda day. I used my 2.55 with a vintage shawl from Kate & Butterfly

We stopped at Mulberry at Shepton Mallet. There are surely not many better places to shop! Where else can you sit and have a cup of tea in between looking at discounted Mulberry pieces (and they have cake!), oh AND the Summer sale had started two days previously!

What is in the Bags!

Mulberry Blue Printed Silk Twist Front Dress

I love the buckle detailing on the Belt. The belt is as soft as butter and the dress is silk!

A pretty Amazing discount :) PC and the Girls bought me this for my Birthday x

In the section where the tea rooms are, there are further reductions!
I couldn't believe it when I saw these little boots high up above the clothes at the back of the store.

I am a sucker for Electric Blue and these were sitting there.
I tried them on and they fitted perfectly! My very own Cinderella Moment!

Electric Blue Mulbery Postman Lock Ankle Boots!

They had been reduced to £295 (from £450) and NOW they were £135!

Well all the excitement meant that we needed a hair of the dog so we then continued to the Hotel Bar

This was our bath for the evening, which is in the bedroom! 

and this was our wet room downstairs

In the afternoon, we had a massage and the girls went swimming, we then
chilled out in the bar with my filthy Fifty Shades book - Complete and Utter Perfection!

Jools Wore the Westwood Dress for Dinner

with my favourite Louboutins

and when we woke up at Babington this morning on my Birthday it was just heavenly.

I have the most amazing friends, and I got some beautiful cards and gifts, and I am going to show you those tomorrow - I will take pictures of them in the morning.

Thankyou for all the lovely Birthday messages - I am a very lucky girl to have you all - and
I do know it!! x

Thanks for reading x

Where is this place that the Mulberry shop is? I need to go there! I loved the Postmans Lock boots when they were on NAP but in this colour they are gorgeous and the dress is divine! Glad you had a great birthday honey xx

Sounds like you did have an amazing Birthday! Outfits of course are gorgeous and yes, even if I'd have seen the boots I probably would have said to Steve that they were perfect for you! Happy, Happy birthday! x Liz
