instagram diaries: birthdays etc.




My birthday was nearly two weeks ago now, and while the actual event was fairly low key, I’ve been receiving the birthday love for a lot longer. I’ve been known for drawing out my birthdays for as long as possible and I only think I’m getting better at it with age.
1. Pre-birthday rooftop drinks at Lady Lamington
2. My friends really brought their A-game when buying cards this year
3. D.I.Y. paper pinhole camera and Fifi Lapin card, all the way from the UK
4. Camera earrings!
5. Pom pom garlands at the Finders Keepers Markets
6. Treated myself to a neon bangle at the Finders Keepers Markets

    Belated happy birthday Soph. I just got a ton of gifts myself & it's nowhere near my birthday. I must admit I'm a little jealous of yours, such pretty stuff!

      There are some equally lovely gifts that aren't shown – like a Totoro toy and galaxy socks. I feel quite spoilt >.<
