Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes! *BIG hugz*
On my actual birthday, I went out with my boyfriend and a bunch of very close friends to a Thai restaurant. The restaurant was wonderfully decorated (made me feel as if I was in a restaurant in Bangkok) and the food was authentic Thai. Most of all, the company was fantastic. I've known this group of friends for nearly 5 years. We used to live in the same student halls of residence the very first year we arrived in the UK. We quickly bonded and have remained close friends ever since.
There's that little black convertible dress, again. Did you recognize it? I wore it about 2 weeks ago to a friend's birthday party *click*. On Friday night, I pulled it out again and wore it to my own birthday dinner. This time, instead of turning them into sleeves, I pulled both straps to one side and wore it one-shouldered. I love this dress and intend to get as many wears out of it as possible.
I know gladiator heels are so two years ago, but I refuse to shove them inside a dusty cupboard just because fashion dictates that they are no longer "in". I fell in love with gladiator heels when I saw Sarah Jessica Parker wear them in Sex and the City. I love the pair I got because it makes me feel about 6 feet tall in them.
Here's a picture of the rings I wore. These rings were lovingly handmade by the boyfriend; one of the many birthday gifts he got me this year. He sneakily took one of my rings to measure my ring size without my knowing. Every time I was out of the house, he'd painstakingly wind the wire and beads together. I was very touched because he has never made jewellery before and though he bought the materials, he pretty much made these rings from scratch. I love them!
He requested for customized cuppycakes and specifically asked for handbags and shoes to be made out of fondant because he knows how much I love bags and shoes! Awww...they were so pretty I almost couldn't eat them. Almost. Because my friends came over after dinner and I decided to share some with them. Everyone was so high on sugar after that! hehehe...
Who knew that Thai food, cupcakes, Heart Attack (a card game) and Pictionary could elicit SO much laughter? As cliche as it sounds, I had such an amazing time, I wished the night would never end.
