It’s my birthday!

Hooray! I turn into a 5 year old whenever my birthday comes around. I count down to it for at least a month, get so excited I can’t sleep (although it may have been thanks to the mexican food I ate last night this time…), and try and eat as much cake as physically possible on the day. I don’t know why I love it so much… I suppose I do love presents and the fact that I can act like a princess for the day and everyone has to be nice to me. But I think it is also the fact that, despite cynics who say “You’re only a day older than you were yesterday.”, it is a day in your life when you can reflect upon what you achieved that year and think about what exciting things will happen in the next. For me, I have quit a stable job and started my own business, learnt how to sew and fallen in love with socks. In my 26th year (yikes) I will live in Paris, improve my french and eat a hell of a lot of food. It’s all quite exciting and even though I haven’t yet managed to eat a single crumb of cake yet today, I’m quite happy.

You’ll be pleased to hear my dad bought me a stack of socks for my birthday – all with different colours, stripes, spots, shiny bits. Also I got a bag o’ buttons. So look out world – the Zaum Menagerie is coming to a store near you!

What can I say? I care about our environment. That’s why I feel a-okay about just having spent a little too much money on Elroy Apparel clothes. I stumbled across them and fell instantly in love. So much so, I had to go downstairs, into the cold, grab my purse and buy some things. Their clothes are made from organic, sustainable products and look quite beautiful (in the pictures anyway). Fingers crossed I haven’t just wasted a whole lot of money but I’ll be sure to let you know when my new coat arrives.

Elroy Coat

This will be me in 7-21 days. Except my cheeks will be naturally flushed due to excess excitement.
