A whole year & another birthday

For as long as I’ve had this blog, I have never failed to post a little something on my birthday. So, it’s a bit late this year – my birthday was on Saturday – but I’ve put this together: it’s basically a few pics going back over the last 12 months. To be quite honest, I’ve enjoyed this short walk down memory lane, though I appreciate none of you will know the moments and stories behind the pics so this is really for me rather than anyone else. I’ve gone from blonde back to Brunette this year and it feels right as I’m in a really good place right now, I’m back to being me – fully and unapologetic-ally.

Here are all my blurry and not at all professional snapshots.

I was on my way to a ‘free speech’ rally in London (yes, again!)

Not sure why I was looking so angry – I was tired is probably why

    1. I almost mentioned you by name when writing the blog post – I was going to say, well…nobody knows what is behind the pics but some won’t care – thinking of Rob in particular 😁

  1. Merci pour cette série de selfies. Très beaux yeux et superbe silhouette…
    Si je peux me permettre de donner mon humble avis, je trouve que tu es un peu plus jolie en brunette qu’en blonde.
    Et avec un peu de retard : Bon anniversaire !
    Bise.

    1. Oh, mais c’est trop! Merci, surtout pour les yeux parce que c’est la seule chose dont je suis fière (physiquement) oui, oui, je l’avoue, mes yeux sont ma petite fierté 😉
      Et puis, je suis contente de savoir que d’être brunette me va bien puisque c’est ma couleur naturelle, et celle que je préfère aussi.
      Merci encore! Bises aussi.

  2. NOT just Rob, add me too as the happy one who is getting more out of your birthday celebrations than you – thank you for this. The beautiful faces of Nathalie. I like you blonde or brunette to be honest, which is weird as I never liked blondes until I saw what you could do blonde. I think it’s because you are just so much more than color. You can wear things, do things that others simply cannot get away with and everyone loves you for it. I am glad for another year of you – I am glad for you full stop. The beauty fest has me smiling from ear to ear my talented and lovely friend xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx I hope you had a wonderful day xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and have a wonderful year ahead xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    1. Haha! Yes, I know you like the pics too and since I’m shameless with them…😁
      Once again I can’t really say very much apart from: I’m not worthy…but I’m honoured you should have so many lovely things to say about me.
      I did have a great day and hopefully it’s going to be a really good year as well. Thank you, lovely one. So much 😘💜

    1. Aww, you’re so sweet 🙂

      Mermaid rears, uh? Hahaha So you’re one of them 😉

      I’m so pleased you like the duffel coat, I have a collection of duffle coats – someone I know keeps calling me Paddington because of it. 🐻

      I hope you haven’t been reviewing it all this time because you must be mighty bored by now 😂

      Thanks so much again 💜

      1. I’m definitely one of them!! 😉

        Paddington? I LIKE it… could just see you being a little bare.
