My Birthday

Another late post! Sorry i've been on a roll with late posts lately.

Wanted to share a recap of my Quarter of a Century birthday with you all that was on December 29th. I had two celebrations, both with two different group of friends. I feel that as you get older, doing crazy things is not really on the list anymore, i much rather be spending time with my family and friends. I wasn't ever big on the clubbing scene or the nightlife, but for my birthday i really wanted to try drinking a lot! (which didn't really happen the way i planned).

On December 28th, i had dinner with some friends at a restaurant. Afterwards, we went to a bar for some chatting and we ended up playing some truth or dare pool and darts. It was a really fun night.

On my actual birthday, the bf and i went out to buy some lotto's and scratch cards to test my luck. Out of all that i bought i only won $4....meh...gambling never really worked out for me anyways.
Had dinner at night with some friends, there was a snowstorm that night so a lot of people couldn't make it.
After dinner, we went karaokeing for the night time happy hour. A lot of people left early though, leaving the bf and i there ourselves singing until 3am. It was a good night overall, i just wish it could have been better.

How do i feel being 25? Now let me tell you i started feeling 25 after i turned 24! It's stressful (only because i let stress get to me). I don't want to grow up.

Here are some nifty things i got over the holidays

My co-worker gave me these drying drops by OPI, and wow, they do dry really fast! and a BUTTER nail polish. Heard so many nice things but never tried. I really like the texture, very smooth!

 wearing it on my nails

My bf gave me this beautiful MK watch for my birthday. I've been eyeing it fr a while. I love MK watches, i want them all!

A friend gave me this Clinque  eye shadow kit. Lots of lovely colors, haven't tried it yet though.

My girlfriend gave me this Kat Von D makeup book called "venusta impetus" (anyone translate please?). Shape like a book, it looks amazing!

so many pretty colors!

and a hidden lipgloss underneath

 Also my sister in law gave me this beautiful Michael Kors scarf. It's really big and meant to just be put over your head and have that chunky neck scarf look. Haven't used it yet, afraid of it getting dirty!

Lastly, i got my first Lush purchase! I was so excited going into the Lush store. I wanted to get my hands on the holiday bath bombs but they were all sold out.

Instead i got two (buy one get one free) so white bathbombs and they gave me a free angel's delight sample. Can't wait to try out these babies! i wish i had a jacuzzi!

  6. Omg Sandy your birthday seemed amazing and all those great presents! <3 lovesss!!! I know you said it wasn't great but I hope next year will be better! That's sweet your bf stayed with you to sing K until 3 am haha Oh as for the drying drops, how fast do they dry your nails?! I'm always on the look out for things to quick dry my nails, Im currently using Seche Vite top coat which takes about 10mins to dry then I can even have a shower!

    That watch is beautiful and all those beauty goodies! But I think my favorite overall is that scarf you got! (oh and you imac from your bf for christmas! haha)

  7. you look so beautiful! Happy belated bday!!


  8. Happy Belated Birthday Sandy! You look so stunning, like a bombshell, seriously! Ah you got so many nice things during Christmas. I know what you mean about not wanting to use something nice to avoid ruining it haha. Kind of takes the fun out of wearing it. I've wanted to buy some Lush bath bombs for a long time too. But because we only have one bathtub (my other is just a shower), it's not feasible to take a relaxing bath while knowing that my family members are waiting to use the bathroom outside. Plus they always tease asking "what's taking so long in there?" Hahaha!

    Ooh, you're moving into a new place? With you bf? Omg that's amazing! I can't wait to have my own place one day :D

  9. glad you had amazing night!
