Happy Birthday to Me! :)

Birthday dinner at our favorite sports bar!
Happy Monday everyone! I'd like to thank you for all the sweet birthday wishes I've received. Each one put a smile on my face, and I've definitely been feeling the love all day long!

As far as birthdays go, it's been an uneventful one. On a particularly awesome note, I got waaaayy more birthday presents than I expected! New sparkly sandals, a new dress, a very special birthday package from my bffl Steph, and 2 presents that really made my day!

I've been wanting a more subdued Coach purse for a while. The one I have is awesome, but it's bright pink.. and it's not really appropriate for every occasion. But the Signature Stripe Tote will be perfect! And I got the matching wristlet to go with it!

The next awesome present is the Sigma Paris Makeup Palette! I've been lusting over this since it came out, and my palette is super special to me because MakeupByTiffanyD gave it to me! I got it just in time for my birthday, and it is such a sweet and thoughtful gift. The shadow Tiffany created is Eiffel on the far left. It's a black with multi-colored glitter scattered throughout. You can enlarge the picture to get a better view of it! I've already taken TONS of pics of it and will have swatches up shortly. But in the mean time, I wore it to dinner tonight (picture above!) and the quality is amazing! If you're wanting it.. DO NOT WAIT! Buy it!

Lastly.. what birthday would be complete without cake, right?!

Chris made me a delicious dark chocolate fudge PRINCESS CAKE! Yes. I'm 26 and I have a princess cake. And it's AWESOME! It even has edible pearls on it! :D I love it and it is delicious!

Aaaaaaand that concludes my 26th birthday! I need to go paint my nails quickly before I go to bed. I have to be back at work at 6am. Yuck. :(
