The Birthday Girl Part Two



Close Up of My Makeup



Bruschetta

Since we will be out of town on my birthday, my parents and my sisters and I celebrated my birthday yesterday, instead. It was nice. I got to sleep in, have a cupcake for breakfast and open presents. My dear parents got me a new camera - a Nikon CoolPix L110 - and my little sisters got me a new card, and a really nice purple case for it. The camera is amazing. The pictures are so much bigger, and so much clearer than my old one, and the zoom lens is incredible. <3 The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I'd rather been looking forward to seeing that, so I was very happy, and I'd finished the book just in time (last night) for it, too! And then,for a perfect ending to the day we had bruschetta for dinner, and watched the second episode of Sherlock before bed. <3

For this outfit I also wanted something fun, but in this outfit I went with brighter colors than the last outfit, and busier look as opposed to the very simple look of the last outfit. I really love this dress - especially with the hot pink ties in the back - but I felt a little uncomfortable with how short it was without black tights, so I layered it over an old white skirt I've had for years. I really liked the way it turned out - maybe not quite as much as I did without the skirt, but I haven't fully decided yet.

I think my two favorite parts of this outfit is the headband and the bracelets. I got the headband months ago, but this is the first time I've worn it. It so reminds me of a bow that would belong on top of a present - which is why I loved it for this outfit. I also love the bold statement of the three gold bracelets. Seriously. Those are awesome. <3
