make-believe: birthday.

June 28, 2012
on sunday i turn 28. it feels big. all i really want to do for my birthday is catch a few fireflies and eat cake. birthdays are for cake. there’s no two ways about it. a birthday without cake is like a night without stars. can’t have one without the other. well, you can, but that’s awfully sad to think about. a little bit of rosΓ© champagne and a festive ensemble aren’t bad birthday accompaniments either.  so, here it is, a make-believe birthday. but the real one is coming up, i promise.

1. festive blouse 2. firefly catching jar 3. birthday candles 4. sparkling rosΓ© 5. jewels 6. birthday cake 7. birthday clogs

    I so agree with that cake theory…except, any day without cake is bound to be worse than a day that involves cake πŸ˜› Oh and that is a beautiful blouse! Rhi xx

    Happy early birthday! I had my birthday a few days ago, and all I needed was a cupcake, a tasty cocktail, and a long walk.

    Love the blouse!

    I looked everywhere for these mason jars! I finally found them nestled in a small hardware store on Court Street in BK. Happy Early Bday!

    That t-shirt is so fun and sparkly. So is that necklace. And yes: birthday without cake just isn't the same.
