I turned 23 on Tuesday!!
As it was a week day I spent my birthday working. However on the weekend I had a combined birthday party with my housemate Florian (whose birthday is also in May).
Not many photos were taken, I was too busy hosting and flitting from person to person trying to talk to everyone there haha. I did take a few photos on my polaroid camera and my aunt took a few photos on her camera. Thought I would share a few photos that Belinda took 🙂
My friend Vanessa….we actually met years ago when we both followed the same band! When we were introduced again a couple months ago we spent the whole night staring at each other trying to figure out why each others face was so familiar. Later I did some facebook stalking and discovered she knows the members of the band and then it clicked where I knew her from 🙂
The best part about the party was the smoke machine that we hired!! Danny (the bargain king) managed to get the machine and lights for $70! I went upstairs to get ready for the party and I could hear the boys laughing their heads off downstairs. I opened my bedroom door and the hallway was full of smoke! Walked downstairs and the house was full of so much smoke it was pitch black and I couldn’t even see my hands in front of me!! Let’s just say we had to disable the smoke alarms 😛 So for most of the night the house was FULL of smoke…it was awesome! We were all dancing in the lounge room but couldn’t see each other so it was like being in your own little world and occasionally bumping into other shadows. So many people walked into the glass door when they tried to get outside hahaha
I made a Jamie Oliver number for the salad….it looked amazing and I had fun making it…I realised the next day that I never actually got to try it! 🙁 I shall have to make it again.
We had THREE birthday cakes on the night….can anyone else claim that they have had so many cakes on their birthday?? Our lovely housemate Irene baked a passionfruit cheesecake and a Ferraro Roche chocolate cheesecake and Danny made a chocolate meringue/mousse cake. All three were amazing but I was a bit more partial to the meringue/mousse cake as i love meringue and mousse!
All in all I had a fairly good birthday 🙂
Back to makeup, I will be filming another Tim Burton inspired makeup look soon so be on the look out for it!
And finally, here is today’s makeup:
Using makeup geek eyeshadows in – Country Girl, Taupe Notch, Vanilla Bean and Shimma Shimma.
Arbonne foundation in Honey Beige and the new Arbonne mascara Long Story in black.
Morgan Annie lipstick in Perfect Pink and NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in African Queen.
Tomorrow is the start of a long weekend here in Perth. It is Foundation Day. I didn’t even realise it was a long weekend so I’m not sure what I’ll be doing for it yet. I may go camping with a few friends or I might see my family. Even if you aren’t in Perth, what are your plans for this weekend?? 🙂
Whatever you do, I hope you all have an amazing weekend!
