The one with the Dr Who speech ...

These are my two different outfits from New Years Eve 2013 ... I wore one to travel to my friends house, have a meal and play some drinking games (with champagne i might add LOL) with there friends and family and then we got changed to go bring the new year in at a local pub ...

I didn't remember to get a full picture of my 2nd outfit - so If my friend has any pictures of me where you can see it properly I'll have to add them at a later date possibly.

I didn't choose to wear the butterfly necklace on purpose, as I was looking for something to go with my sparkly silver dress, I looked through my jewellery and this stood out to me, nothing else had felt right up until that point.

What do butterfly necklaces mean I thought to myself and promptly googled it :)

They mean change or a metamorphosis - how fitting I thought to wear it on New Years Eve - when the year literally changes into a brand new one!!

Candycane Nails ;P

What I Wore:
Dress: Vintage.
Bolero & Leggings: F+F @ Tesco.
Boots: Gifted.
Butterfly Necklace: Gifted, Orig: TU.
Earrings: Gifted.
Sparkly Headband: ??
Nail Art: Candycane by Avon.
Weird glowy glasses: Provided by pub haha.

Ive been thinking a bit about change recently, whilst watching the Dr Who Christmas special on Christmas Day, Matt Smiths Dr gave a little speech about change as he was regenerating into the "New" Dr ..... And it struck a chord ...

"Times change and so must I ... We all change when you think about it, we're all different people through our lives and thats okay, thats good as long as you remember all the people that you used to be"

Its true we do all change and grow as people over the years and yet remain the same person in other ways!
I'm not entirely the same person I was 10 years ago for instance, who can say that they are??

Although strangely enough the sparkly dress I am wearing is the dress I wore for my "Leavers ball" from school which was 15/16 years ago now - How funny??

What I Wore:
Top: Dorothy Perkins.
Skirt: Cherokee @ Tesco.
Tights: Marks and Spencers.
Butterfly Necklace: Gifted, Orig: TU.
Earrings: Gifted.

Hope that you all had a happy and safe night whatever you got up to and however you celebrated?

And I wish you all a happy new year - may 2014 be filled with much love and laughter!! :)
