Birthday weekend - Outfits, gifts and cakes

Hi Ladies,
so as promised, I will share with you the outfits I wore for my birthday, the gifts I received and my cakes! ^^

First I will start with the cakes that I boyfriend bought for me on the day of my birthday. Since my birthday was on a week day, we celebrated my birthday on the weekend. On the day of my birthday, he got me all my favorite cakes at Premiere Moisson. I prefer that he gets me pieces of cake with variety than getting me a whole cake which I can never finish.
  • Black forest
  • Tiramisu
  • Strawberry cheese cake
  • Creme brule

Onto my outfits... this is the first outfit I put together to go out with my girlfriends. A dark grey dress paired with a 3/4 pattern top. (My mirror is a bit dirty... sorry about that)

The second outfit is a black dress with pretty details on the collar paired with a green/turquoise cardigan.

For makeup, I did a simple look to match with the outfits. I'm still not that good with taking makeup pictures, but it looks prettier in person!

Then onto the gifts. I guess the fact that we're getting older and pickier, my family gave me money! In some ways, it's more practical this way so I can go get whatever I like. A few close friends got me the following:
Body Truffles set
  • Silky caress body creme in Fudge Brownie
    • Like the lightest touch from a delicate veil our Fudge Brownie body creme will cover your skin in a velvety layer of softness. The rich and luxurious blend of Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter will melt into your skin leaving it irresistibly silky sold to the touch.
  • Melting delight body bar in Fudge brownie
    • This luxurious, ultra-hydrating butter bar glides across your body leaving a lightly scented trail of intoxicating Fudge Brownie while soothing your dry skin with Cocoa Seed Butter, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil.
  • Stolen kiss lip butter in Fudge Brownie
    • A deliciously flavored, tinted lip butter to soothe and moisturize dry lips.

At first, I actually thought it was some kinky body chocolate stuff, but they're actually creams.

Another friend got me the following:
  • Cuccio naturale Milk & Honey butter blend set
  • Kahlua chocolates
  • Lindt petits desserts
The set contains:
  • Body Butter
    • A non-oily, intense hydrating treatment for silky smooth skin. Patented 24 hour time-release emollients moisturize skin every 2 hours.
  • Sea salts
    • Rich in minerals, natural sea sats gently exfoliate to reveal softer and silkier skin, while milk and honey extracts provide soothing and moisturizing properties.
  • Cuticle Conditioning Butter Stick
    • Moisturizes, conditions and repairs dry cuticles with Shea Butter, Olive and Jojoba Oils. No oily residue and 24 hour hydration.
  • Scentual Spa Elixir
    • Create an alluring aromatherapy environment. Use as a room spray or spray directly on linens and towels.

The scent of these products is sooo soothing and relaxing. The scent of spa! I will do reviews of them when I start using them, but it will take a while. I don't like starting new products when I still have something similar which is opened. I'll have to finish up my open products before starting these ones...
Till next time...~


  1. Happy belated birthday! It’s a wonderful idea to get a variety of cakes. Maybe I should consider that for my birthday too.
    Your gifts of creams look and sound so edible! I think if I were to use them on myself, I wouldn’t be able to resist eating them!

  2. Love all the goodies..your little black dresses are very sexy. Happy Belated Birthday.

  3. ohhh your boyfriend is so sweet for getting you different pieces of cake, i think that is so creative and you can try all the ones you like!
    love your outfit by the way and your gifts are so cute!

  4. I think it's a great idea your bf bought individual cake slices!!! Super sweet of him to remember all your favorites too! lol I like your outfit and my fav coordinate is definitely the first one! You got some awesome gifts! hahaha for my family, it's the complete opposite, if I ask them to buy me something they go "can't we just give you the money instead?" LOL but I have to agree money is a lot more practical than have my parents buy me something *shudders*

  5. Loving all the stuff you got. That's actually a great idea getting a just pieces of different cakes, most of what you got are my favorites as well:D You looked lovely:)
