Quarter of a Century

     Here we are again, another year older. I turned 25 earlier this week, and every year as I age, it makes me reflect on life and where I am. I mean, I do that all the time on this blog anyways, but my mind drifts into that area again whenever I consider how old I am now. And 25 feels like a fairly significant one - halfway through my twenties, halfway to fifty, quarter of a century... After 25 I feel like we only really celebrate each decade as the milestones.

Outfit - Birthday Party

     Well, it's been a while since my last outfit post, hasn't it? I'm not working to such a strict schedule for posting as I used to, as although it did make me post regularly, I felt I was starting to sacrifice quality for the sake of quantity. But anyways, it was my birthday party last weekend, so I figured I'd share the outfit I chose for that. It wasn't a 'party' as such, rather just a bunch of friends going out to a couple of pubs for the night. They're locations I've been to before, pretty regularly, so it wasn't anything too fancy or exciting, but I wanted to dress up a little more than usual since it was a more special occasion. This dress is a favourite of mine, as I love the colour and lace patterns, and it's comfortable to move around in. The boots are also my standard going out shoes, comfy as well as cute. The cardigan and tights are a must for Scottish winter weather these days. And the jewellery was some of my favourite pieces too, all silver to match each other, with the rings being the ones I wear all the time, and the earrings are just big and fun. I liked the idea of the 'tree of life' symbolism as I get older as well!

Cape Town | South Africa

     Alright, strap in guys, because this is a long one! This is also my final post from my South Africa trip, which concluded in the capital of Cape Town. As I explained in the last post, Hermanus brought the group tour to an end, with just the drop off in Cape Town the following morning. Beyond that, everyone had decided for themselves how much longer to stay there for. I had booked two extra nights, giving me an afternoon, full day, and morning (roughly 48 hours total) to explore the city before I'd have to head to the airport for my flight home. So, there's a lot I managed to squeeze in!
