An Overview of My Birthday

Hello everyone, as the title of this post suggests . . .  I’ll being giving you guys a bit of insight on my birthday this past Thursday.

On Thursday morning I woke up 17 and the day was been filled with happy birthdays, hugs and just generally lots of love. It’s really nice to have a refresher of how much people care and I’m really grateful to have the life that I do and to have been blessed to have lived as long as I have.

My favourite part of birthdays is the cake:

German chocolate cake with caramelized coconut on top.

I had fun that day.

Bye everyone and I hope that you’ll enjoy your birthdays as well.



#2014BloggerChallenge – New Years Inspiration

“May Light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For,
May your arms Never Tire.”

― D. Simone


Hey everyone, ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! (Happy New Year!)

This is my first post of the new year and my first ever post for the #2014bloggerchallenge. Wow, it’s really 2014 already, I can hardly believe it!

But, in disregard of me living in December 34th, the first topic for the #2014bloggerchallenge is based on new year’s inspiration. The quote that I put above is basically the epitome of what inspires me for the new year. The new year for me is a chance to continue on and it’s a continuing chance to do want you want to do and fulfil your goals and dreams!

And there’s so much that you can do in life if you only try, a new year symbolises a chance to do that.

So don’t let this year be like the last – even if the last year was the best you’ve ever had – let this year be better than all the others. Work harder and play harder! There are 362 days left in this year, and there are just too many possibilities out there. So I urge you not to waste those days – not a single on. Life’s too short to spend time doing nothing. Do something.

Thank you guys for listening to my rambling, and I still haven’t heard from you guys what your New Year’s resolutions are. So, what are they? Let me know.

Bye guys and I’ll talk to you in the next post.



Day 10 of Christmas – A Little Chit Chat


Tomorrow – which is in about an hour – is Christmas Eve. Now, there’s a little tradition in my family in which we leave all our Christmas shopping until the night before. Sounds absurdly stressful doesn’t it. Well, it’s not really. I’ve been doing a bit of scouting around downtown when I’ve had the chance – which isn’t much –  and so tonight, it’s on. I’ve been in need of a few beauty essential and I plan to use Christmas Eve as an excuse to splurge.


And, also I think I’ll pick up a bit of something something for you guys as well. Do I see a giveaway in the near future? Gasp! Are you excited?

Anyway wish me luck.

Christmas Eve here is kind of like a big event here, like a party that everyone’s invited to and so everyone gets all dressed up to go out. I’ll be doing a OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) post later tomorrow so you guys can see what I’ll be wearing.

So this is it for day 10, WOW, this whole little blog series went by really quickly.

Bye babes, I’ll talk to you guys in the next post!
