Faux Fur Weekend

I had no idea I knew so many February babies, every other day its someone's birthday and they just have to celebrate it, resulting in my donning glad rags every weekend to go forth and party 

*sidebar* I am neither employed nor in school, I'm in a weird jobless limbo and I constantly need activities to fill the chasm that is my daily life. I may never experience such halcyon days again so trust I'm enjoying it to the maximum.

Before I go on, thanks to you guys that recommended shows to me in my last post, I live for my TV shows and I got some awesome tips. My favourite so far is Suburgatory, I'm usually not a fan of tween movies or shows unless they're depraved like Gossip Girl, but this one is actually quite good. I've bookmarked it in my viewing schedule, top marks.

SATURDAY

This past weekend I left the comfort of my black satin sheets for two consecutive nights. It was my friend Tuckers birthday and he was having a house do so I didn't really see the need to go all out dress wise. Wore the backless houndstooth dress I had on in a previous post and my delish shaggy faux fur jacket.

Zara faux fur jacket


I'm so in luurrrve with fur, I can't wait till I'm old and fabulously wealthy, I'm going to wear mink and chinchilla like its cotton.

I haven't really done the back to back partying thing since I was in Law School and I had no intention of going to a club but everyone was in such high spirits that I ended up being buoyed by the rest of the group and we ended up in a club where I proceeded to introduce myself to Jaeger bombs.

It did not end well.


This picture was taken at the end of the night, I'm surprised I even look sane, I sure as hell did not feel sane at the time.

Woke up the next morning rough as a badgers arse *in the voice of Marian Keyes*

What. A. Night.


SUNDAY

The next night it was my friend Jennifer's birthday and we had dinner at a Brazilian Churrascaria called Tropero.

I whipped out the faux fur again.

It was kinda sad because Jen is moving back to Ghana next week, my sidekick is going :(

*sigh*

After dinner we went to a place I shall not name, then dancing for a bit where everybody tried to teach me Azonto but I still couldn't get the hang of it. I pick up dances pretty easily, the Chicken Dance and the Dougie being some of my personal triumphs but this Azonto just seems to elude me. First of all it doesn't really look like they're dancing, more like they're just messing around.

Anyhoo I've armed myself with Youtube tutorials, this thing must be learned by force or by fire.

Fun weekend, this week promises to be even more epic, London tonight.

Can. Not. Wait.



This post is dedicated to my boo/neighbour/dessert supplier/party partner/movie buddy, Jennifer Bawuah, I'll miss you.

Ugh, I hate goodbyes.

Love and light xx

  3. I love me some Tropiero *dreamily salivating as I think good thoughts about all that meat*
    Would the club-that-shall-not-be-named be Espionage or somewhere seedy by the habour? No judgement here.

    Discovered your blog from word of mouth. Nice, you make Abz seem a lot more fun than the rest of us boring 3rd world ingrates (with our constant moaning about how everything is grey, so very GREY!)... I really should unchain myself from my workstation and get out more often.

  4. @Tito: Ohmydays I actually LOL'd when I read your comment. Killer. Yes I have hair, thanks very much.

    @TWP Fan: Lmao @ endangered species, I personally think I look like a bird but thanks for the vote of confidence.

    @LegalBeagle: Seeing as I'm stuck here for the meantime, I have to do something with my time.The name of the club would be Private Eyes actually, lap dances for all, lol.You live in Abz? Email me, we should totally get together.
