Aztec Print Dress - Warehouse*
Sunglasses - Topshop
Bangles - Primark
Sandals - Primark

This is my new favourite dress. Its a definite 'chuck on and go' dress, is ridiculously comfy (it even has adjustable straps), and so, perfect for a BBQ. I  do find that Warehouse sizes come up a little small, so I'd definitely size up if you get this! Dans birthday is today, so on Saturday we had a BBQ and invited family and friends over to get fat with us. I made a tonne of stuff from scratch (thanks to my friend Cerys for showing me how to make guacamole), and it was incredibly satisfying to watch everyone tuck into it, whilst I kept a topped up Pimms nearby, complete with sparkles and a cocktail umbrella. Why not, eh? I also attempted to decorate the garden a little bit with some birthday bunting, but these balloons* from balloonmonkey.co.uk stole the show and gave Dan a nice surprise when they were delivered that morning. They were delivered in a plain box with confetti and tissue, and he thought I'd bought him flowers (I can't believe he didn't guess with the weird lightness of the box)! 

My family are starting to move to other parts of the country, and because of Dans job and most of our friends jobs, we don't see each other half as much as we'd like, so it was a treasure just to get everyone together again, and laugh at my dad wearing my Annabelles half wig looking like Ozzy Osbourne, and my 5 year old niece pretending to be honey boo boo child with it on. Mmm, only the Bartons. Also, how much does my dog look like Dobby with those nervous ears? 

Do you have any amazing food ideas for BBQ's?
When was the last time you had one?
