Here's a birthday haiku:
Birthday in Glasgow.
I am 28 years old.
Carla is ancient.
However in typical Carla-style I am still not dressing for someone who is knocking thirty, and instead chose to look like an eccentric French child to go for birthday doughnuts.
SKIRT: New Look
BAG: Kate Spade
BROOCH: Gift from my work pal, Ashleigh.
We had a wonderfully chill weekend, which was mostly spent eating and binge watching Drag Race. (Poor Nadia is trawling her way through the snoozefest that is season 7. Bleurgh. Apart from Trixie and Katya, obvs.)
We also watched Eurovision. Sweden was robbed.
Italian Catholic Mother and Papi B bought me this beautiful Glitterbomb jewellery I asked for.
(Turns out the Sailor Moon necklace is a bit defective, but Glitterbomb's customer service has been 10/10 and a new one should be on it's way to me soon!)
They also surprised me with my favourite gin, Mara Wilson's book and an amazing Zelda notebook!
Nadia bought me Too Faced's Better Than Sex mascara and a kawaii AF makeup bag:
And naturally as Glasgow one of my favourite UK cities for scran, we ate all the food - including a stop at my favourite ever burger joint Bread Meats Bread.
It was a fabulous long weekend, and I bought myself an extra present - the special edition of Fire Emblem Echoes which is beautiful and amazing.
I've been working all the hours I can lately to save for my Japan spending money, but can't wait to get stuck into the game when things quieten down somewhat.
It's somewhat bittersweet as it's the final game in the series to be released for the 3DS before the series moves over to the Switch.
