Cleaning

Today I have been cleaning out the study and the top of my wardrobe to make room for my over flowing room. It has been quite tiring going through things and going up and down the stairs with items. But it is looking better and I think I will try painting the study sometime soon before I go back to uni. Thats in about 2 weeks eep!

Anyway I thought I would show what I received for my bday. There will some things that I can't show because I haven't uploaded them onto the computer. So here they are:

This is what I received from Jason. My lovely Mombasa dress that I love, some awesome dance sneakers! yay!, the sweetest and cutest ballet flats!, a Narnia musical biscuit tin (hehe!) and he made me a cute little bookmark. All in all a fantastic present.

This is what I received from my oldest bro, sis in law and the 2 boys. I got a Shiseido skincare pack, Shiseido blotting paper (I needed this stuff too!), a cute strawberry printed belt, a sweet little pink necklace and my adorable nephew Isaiah made me this little green bead bracelet!!

I received this one from Jenn. She got me an awesome Crabtree and Evelyn travel pack which contains a mini lotion, body wash, hand lotion and soap all in a little drawstring bag. This is great for my trip to the philippines at the end of this year. The other thing is a glass latern which I used at my bday party. It's soo pretty with the glass pattern looking like vintage wall paper and white top and bottom. And she also gave me a pink candle that is meant for the latern but I used a different candle on the night as I wanted to take a photo before it was used =).

This next present was from Kristina. It's a lovely Puma woman gift set. It has body wash, body lotion and an Eu De Toilette in it. It smells so fresh and florally. It's gorgeous.

And this present is from Laura. She made me a mixed cd which unfortunately doesn't work but the cover art and everything about it is soo lovely! She got me a beautiful black photo frame which is just gorgeous. A beautiful wrought iron jewellery holder shoe. An awesome book about making handcrafted things. She put in a few red heart lolly pops and she made me a bday greeting that she created and printed for me. It's all so beautiful!

I wasn't able to show my parents present because it is the digi camera and there is a sweet necklace but I don't think I have taken a photo yet. The present from my other brother which is an Extended edition of Narnia bought via Amazon because we can't get it here. Something from Thara which I can't really put a photo of =p and the one from Brodie and Emmi. They are coming. Or the one from Jason's mum. It's all coming soon.

Anyway, I received such lovely things and my friends are gorgeous girls! The photos do not give them justice I'm still learning how to play around with my camera.

Post bday weekend

My bday and everything to do with it is all finished! On my actual birthday Jason and I went to Chermside to look and we had lunch at Wagamamas. One of my new fave resturants. Most of the day was quite casual and we pretty much just chilled. Then at night my family and I had take out for dinner. So it was laid back and casual.

Then on friday night, Jason and I met with Laura and Josh to have dinner at Toscanis. We then watched 'The Holiday.' It was great! I loved it. The last movie I watched was in Sydney and it was Apocolypto. That movie had an awesome story line but very gory. I still loved it despite the goryness.

Laura stayed over and the next day we bummed around until Jason and Jenn came. We decorated and set up my yard for my little bday butterfly tea party =). I wanted to have something with just a few girls.

It was so much fun just hanging out with them, talking, laughing, eating and everything. It was a fantastic night!!

Here are a few photos. Laura took heaps with her awesome fancy camera so I'm waiting for them. But here are a few from mine.
It's not super clear. This was after the eating so you can't see the lovely set up we did. These are the lovely cupcakes that my parents bought from the Greenflea Markets in West End. They are beautiful and taste heavenly. I'm a huge fan!
This is the little box I used as my thank you for coming present. I just bought one of those cheap look a like chinese take away boxes and decorated it. Another blurry pic. What's with me and blurry pics?? Anyway, that is the pink version of a necklace I made for the girls. This is the purple version of the necklace I made for them.
And these are the tiny teacups and saucers I used to out little earrings in. I put the butterflies on them. And these are the pairs of earrings I made. I love making things for people.

There are other pics I will put up another time. xox

My bday!

Yay it's my birthday today. It's still kind of early morning. I'm excited but not really either. I guess thats what happens once I've past the over 21 years stage. I wanted to go to the beach like the last 2 years but today it's cloudy and might rain as well. Sigh. Oh well I will still have a great day doing other things.

Hmm, so far I have gotton a digital camera (this was christmas and bday) from my parents, an extended narnia dvd from my bro Alvin (which we ordered from America coz it can't be bought here), and from Jase so far he has bought me a sweet dress, some dance shoes and there is something I will be receiving today.

Argh the sun comes out then goes away so it makes it hard to decide what to do. Oh well I'm sure I will have another post up soon about today.
