Happy B-Day To Me!

Today is my birthday! To welcome my 29th year on this earth, I had invited a few friends to have a party. So yesterday evening we drank mulled wine with absinthe, ate cakes, gingerbread and pie, and listened to good music. What a fun evening! It was so nice that many people were able to visit, for some reason I'm always thinking no-one wants to come to my parties, but every time I end up having fun and lots of guests anyway!

Here's what I wore (taken today, I was so busy yesterday I had no time for pictures! I had dark tights and let my hair down yesterday, and didn't have the pretty hairband yet):

Dress - ReStyle
Shoes - Iron Fist (I didn't have shoes the whole evening, we don't usually wear them indoors. But the pics looked poop without them!)
Belt - Second hand
Hairband - A gift from Kerttu and Arttu!

I think this will be my new place to take outfit shots, so you can expect a lot of armpit lights in the future ;P The large mirrors help a lot when it's so dark, they multiply the light from the flash.

I was also overwhelmed how nice gifts I got, everything was like made for me!

Anniina's card was hand-made, with pretty glitter glue, lace and buttons!
Kerttu and Arttu got a pretty pink card, if you look closely it has tiny naked
angels on it ;P

And my superb gifts! A Cramps album, mango lip butter from the Body Shop,
Stargazer nailpolish, the coolest hairband ever, a shirt from Desigual and
a set of coloured markers. There was also a bottle of Glühwein, which I
didn't remember to take a picture of, but it looks delicious! 

Just look at the nailpolish, it's super pretty!

My other half got me some roses (that I got to pick myself) and he hinted
that a mysterious packet might arrive later, how exciting!

This was the biggest gift and one that I instantly found a place for! Thanks Sari and Marko!
Sari is a professional framer and I had been thinking of ordering a custom mirror for my vanity
for some time, and this one is just perfect! Big, dramatic frames and a great colour scheme,
just my kind of thing :)
I big thanks for everyone who came, I'm so happy to have great friends to have a good time with!
