I had a great day and spent time with most of the important people in my life. My birthday always makes me realise how lucky I am to be surrounded by people who I love and who love and care for me.
Had breakfast with my boyfriend and our flatmate in Neutral Bay. I just love Chaos Cafe - we always get great service there and the food is fantastic, especially for the price (especially being lower North Shore). There was an adorable 2 year old at the table next to ours and she decided she would give me stickers, then proceeded to take them all back haha. Then as we left her Mum told her to give me one back, so she did smilingly. Adorable.
I wore my new shoes that Tom bought me for my birthday. The boy has good taste.
He also got me another little surprise - a book about the history and construction of shoes. There's a section on prominent footwear designers and before I even said anything, he said "Don't worry, I checked and Mr Louboutin features in there" hahaa
Last night we headed to Stitch Bar for a few drinks and a feed. I wore a Forever New dress, Louboutin No Prives in Jade Patent, Chanel double flap, 2 Arty rings and a whole heap of random gold costume jewelry (please disregard the horrendously dirty mirror).
Was so good to see all my friends (some of whom I haven't seen in close to 2 years). Stitch Bar was also great - excited by the retro sewing machines everywhere (I feel like I'm the only person under 30 who can sew and thus gets excited by sewing machines) and the staff were great and accommodating. Apologies in advance for the cropping - I don't want to violate my friends' privacy by posting pics of them publicly but I also know this detracts from blogposts. Any tips on how to maintain a balance?

Am having dinner out with my family tonight which I'm looking forward to. In the meantime, it's back to the books to study for my exam on Wednesday.
