Another year older...

There's not long left of my 24th birthday but I've had a nice quiet week of celebrations with my family and friends.

I actually had my cake super early on Sunday since my family were all together and it's family day in our house. My mum and I always share a birthday cake since we share the same birthday.

The cake says Mum, my Chinese name and then Happy birthday underneath!

On Wednesday my grandma treated my mum and I to a newly opened Chinese buffet restaurant. I'm not the hugest fan of buffet in general but the desserts are always fun. The jelly tasted like Rowntree's fruit pastilles!

Waaay too much cream but pretty to look at!

My grandma bought me this really cute red cropped blazer. I plan on wearing it tomorrow with a black dress to party it up with friends. Pictures will definitely ensue! Unfortunately outdoor pictures have been impossible these few days...terrible British weather for you!

My parents bought me the Fuji Instax Mini 25 that I have been tweeting about a lot! I didn't think I would get it in time for today but amazingly, the postie delivered it first thing! I'm obsessed with it already. Waaa. It's amazing.

Of course I had to take one as a momento of our birthday with my mum and then I got pretty snap happy.

Today I had lunch with friends at Wagamamas and I tucked into some Seafood Ramen. Not that you get much seafood. Still yummy though.

We finished off the day at Starbucks where we succumbed to our old age and bonded over some tea and hot chocolate!

Looks like I will be spending a lot of money on film! I can't wait to share more on here. I'm already on the hunt for some of the novelty hello kitty film...after all I have the hello kitty cam!

  1. This is the third method of me wishing you Happy Birthday! Glad you had a great day, that camera is so cute! I am so glad I finally have white walls in my house, though I have to wait until my housemate is at Uni to take pictures, it's been okay so far...

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
    Gosh Chinese cakes are awesome it's been too long since I last had one. I'm so envious of your camera i've had my eye on that for the longest time, toy cameras are my weakness especially if they're Hello Kitty!

  6. Happy Birthday!! I looove your camera! I've got an old spice cam - yep a polaroid camera from the original spice girls merchandise range. When they split up I tore of all the stickers though which i regret very much now. The films are soo expensive though! But they are fun. I also bought some of the Barry M stuff, probably only a couple of hours before you left your comment.. it's amazinggg! :) x

  8. Happy Birthday :) That cake is such a Chinese cake!! We always get those kind of cakes on birthdays instead of the normal, sweet icing ones. And I think they always put WAY too much cream on them! The camera is adorable and your grandma has good taste! xx

    Dude, that Hello Kitty camera is absolutely amazing. And I loveeee Chinese sponge cakes. So delicious. I think I'm the only one that does in my family, haha. Everyone else prefers ice cream cakes. ♥ I hope you had an amazing wonderful birthday. Your grandma is so fashion savvy to get you that blazer. SO CUTE.
