The Birthday Weekend

My 23rd birthday was just a few days ago (Feb 27th) and this year was pretty special. I never know what I want to do for my birthday other than celebrate it in some way and this year was no different. I knew I wanted something simple ( I had a party last year and my sister never showed up, kind of a bummer) and I only wanted my two closest friends to be there. In the end I had planned sort of a weekend vacay in the middle of the week. haha.

We kicked it off with a girls night in - lots of wine, too much sushi, cupcakes and The Wolf of Wall Street on the TV. We laughed a bunch and got a little crazy but it was probably the best night I've had in a long time.


The next day was a little more chill, we drove to my hometown and had brunch at a tea room. It was magical. Seriously. I felt a little bit like a princess with my scones and macaroons. (I watch too many disney movies, i swear haha) My sister and my mom joined us and it was really great.

Later that night we went out for dinner at this amazing burger bar called The Works. I first tried them a few months ago and I have been obsessed since. They have the most ridiculous burgers (mac n cheese on a burger??) but they are so crazy good. Not to mention the deep fried pickles.

I was pretty spoiled this year, my mum and my boyfriend pitched in to get me a new camera - the Canon G16 which is a compact DSLR that is much easier for me to carry. Not to mention the adorable canvas with my favourite couple Mickey and Minnie.

It was a pretty spectacular birthday and I had the best time. Usually something goes terribly wrong each year but not this year (just a little hiccup) so i'm incredibly thankful.
I felt loved and I couldn't have asked for anything more.

  1. Everything looks so yummy! And those teacups are sooooo cute! The couple at the burger place doesn't look in love though....


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I read and try to reply to every single one!
