My 23rd Birthday OOTD…

There is no better way to spend your birthday than to put on a LBD, a sparkly one of course, and enjoy the day with loved ones. I did exactly that, and I thought I would share with you what I wore for the evening meal.

 

I celebrated turning 23 with my family at Qanat al Qasba, in Sharjah, which is such a beautiful tranquil place. Baby Z enjoyed splashing in the water fountain just under the giant Ferris wheel. (Thank goodness I carry a change of clothes, along with everything else under the sun, in my Marry Poppins bag, also known as the Changing Bag!)


My husband’s birthday gift, a beautiful black crystal Swarovski ring, went perfectly with my sequinned outfit, and I felt very spoilt indeed…apart from when I had to deal with a teething baby, but hey that’s all part of motherhood, and I am so blessed to have my little family. Anyway, you will have seen close up shots of my beautiful ring already, if you follow me on Instagram.


My feelings on being 23? It feels just right. For some strange reason, I feel my age, whereas in previous years I didn’t quite, and I am content with myself at this stage in my life. I am excited to see what this year has in store for me, and hope that the tranquility and happiness I felt on my birthday extends itself through out the year.
