I’ve been off-line for a few days doing something very important: celebrating my birthday! I’m a very lucky girl and came home to freshly baked funfetti cupcakes by my fiancé and opened some amazing presents (hello, how gorgeous is that pink zebra wrapper paper?) My favorite gift? A new instax mini camera! It was a hit at the bar; I snapped some instant photos and handed them out to friends as ‘party favors.’ Here’s hoping the rest of year 28 is as fun as this weekend was!


I had an amazing birthday weekend. My friend threw me a fabulous cocktail party on Saturday night, I had a relaxing Sunday, and then I took Monday off for my actual birthday and had a long lunch that turned into cupcakes that then turned into more cocktails. See that cupcake below? It’s a cinnamon chai cupcake with sticky caramel and pecans. Yup. Be jealous.

Plus I got some awesome gifts, like all new bathroom linens and Kate Spade’s Twirl perfume from my family, a chevron bag that has my name written all over it, and an adorable print of stacked suitcases from a friend’s etsy shop. I’m still playing around with hanging up my new print in different spots in the apartment, I can’t make a choice because I want one in every room.

The present that takes the cake is my new Dwell Studio Draper bedding from my boyfriend, I’ve been talking about that set for months and am SO excited to wash them tonight so I can get them on my bed and take some pictures to share!

Thanks to everyone for all of the sweet comments here and on Twitter, it was a spectacular birthday!

Have I mentioned that my birthday is on Monday? I’m a giant brat about my birthday and always demand that people make a big deal about it. Some people think it’s unreasonable to act like that when you’re an adult, but i don’t hang out with those types of people. I hang out with awesome girls who are indulging my brattiness by throwing me a party this weekend!

Anyway, I brought up the topic of birthdays because they remind me of cupcakes, and I wanted to show you these really cute cupcake wrappers. I’m not in charge of my birthday celebration this year, it’s in the hands of those kick-ass girls, but I still really want to buy some polka dot cupcake wrappers… perhaps I’ll throw a Valentines Day party??
