turning 23 was a lovely event : ) when i made it to my parent's home the day before my birthday, my mom had decorated it with lots of flowers & bunting! i invited a few friends over for a little potluck lunch.i got inspiration for the cake bunting from here.on my birthday morning, i had yummy quiche!then i spent the day with my mom (girls' day out!) shopping in the city. we stopped at rare device to see sarah mcneil's art show.then we checked out some zines at needles & pens.& of course we had to stop at the curiosity shoppe & little otsu.lastly, we stopped by gravel & gold for the first time! it was such a lovely store. i loved it.we ended the day eating baked falafel wraps, coconut noodle soup, & vanilla bean ice cream in pomegranate juice at herbivore. (i'm wearing my new vintage yellow top!)it was a fantastic day & i bought some really cute things that i will show you in a post coming up! thanks for all of your birthday wishes!!
