It's my birthday and other general randomness

Yep, it's my birthday today! The trouble with having a birthday so close to Christmas / New Year is by the time my birthday comes around everyone is already partied out, including me! So instead of doing anything massive I spent the day with my family just doing a lazy Sunday lunch and coffee.
My mum and I posing before the food arrives. You can just make out the beginnings of my baby belly!

A couple of presents that must be shared on my blog are my Naked Palette 2 and Prada Candy (both from hubby).
I'm one happy gal, got my hands on NP2 :-)

In other random news, the husband and I had some time off from work and had a lovely time just chilling out (as captured on my iphone). We:
  • went to Victoria for a couple of days to attend a cousin's wedding
  • pretended to be tourists in our own town and spent the day at the Chinese Garden of Friendship at Darling Harbour 
  • drove around Sydney's northern beaches getting some sun
  • spent last night at the Sydney Festival First Night (my favourite summer festival, full of street foods and free street entertainment)
  • finally got my hands on Essie Mint Candy Apple on sale 30% off at Myer
  • went to Cabramatta to stock up on yummy summer fruits (seriously the fruit there is out of this world, and so cheap!)

And on a final note, heading back to work tomorrow, nooooo. Where have the holidays vanished to?

Did anyone else take time off around Christmas / New Year? Do anything exciting?

  10. Thanks Tali - it WAS nice and sunny here lately but this afternoon the weather turned and it's horribly rainy and grey. It always rains on my birthday, always, so I guess I expected it.

    Hope you had a good birthday too!

  13. Happy Birthday!
    A lazy Sunday lunch and coffee sounds like a perfect birthday to me. Having a birthday so close to Christmas can be a bit anticlimactic, we were still eating leftovers for my birthday, but it does give everyone the chance to by birthday pressies in the sales :)
    and make up for forgetting Christmas (like my hubby)

  19. We don't celebrate Christmas in my household, but my youngest sister and I do tend to have a little tradition for new years. It mostly centers around grapes, apple sparkling cider, pie and ice cream 8D;

    You look lovely! As always~
