My Birthday Part Two



my actual birthday started with two of my closest friends coming to my house with a gigantic chocolate cake complete with candles and sparklers, which we lit in my kitchen while they sang happy birthday to me. the three of us spent the day op-shopping along the northern beaches which is something i really love because i don't go to the area very often, but there are three or four really big op-shops right near each other (and some other smaller ones too) and i always manage to find lots of wonderful things when i go to them!

luckily my birthday was no exception - i found LOTS and lots of clothes as well as a 3D puzzle of a globe, a video tape about nas & jay-z for 20c (i couldn't not buy it, despite not actually owning a VHS player..) and a little dachshund figurine because dachshunds are one of my favourite things in the whole world! then we had sushi train for lunch, i played with a super cute puppy and we drove to newtown for dinner with a few more friends at green gourmet. we were planning on having a night out but the weather was pretty miserable so we decided to get dessert at pie tin and watch movies instead. i'd never been to pie tin before but i was suitably impressed - not only did they have the biggest apple pie i've ever seen in my life, but they also had a chocolate peanut butter pie which, of course, is exactly what i got!















me wearing my lovely biscuit dress by caitlin shearer which she very kindly posted to me in time for my birthday. i'll definitely share some more photos of this dress soon, it's one of most beautiful things i've ever owned!






the following day was the helicopter ride and wandering around rozelle/balmain with my parents, so i shot the rest of my roll of film there.

  4. I am glad you had such a wonderful birthday!! I love hearing about your thrifting adventures - I usually have a difficult time finding things I like at thrift shops (I usually have better luck at garage sales).

    1. thank you! :) to be honest i never really go to garage sales much, probably because i never see them around. but i definitely would if i knew about more of them!

  5. Happy birthday! The photo of your cake is so unbelievably lovely and it sounds like you had all sorts of lovely adventures with your friends. Sushi sounds absolutely delicious right about now, I haven't eaten it in awhile so you've now reminded me of it! And hooray for receiving your biscuit dress! It is quite a lovely dress, especially the silhouette. I can't find many reasons to wear it during my boring school week, but I suppose I'll have to find a lovely occasion at some point. Love you photos as always :)

    1. thank you lovely! ^_^ & unfortunately i don't have that many occasions to wear mine out either, i'm always like that with my favourite dresses - i want to save them for special occasions which means i hardly ever get to wear them, it's a shame really. xxx
