Center of Attention

Last weekend was fully dedicated to celebrating my 27th birthday with my friends and family. Saturday was spent with the "Golden 20s" party and sunday, my actual birthday, my family, my godchild and her mother J. came over for coffee and cake. We had a small celebration and of course I used this to dress up once again :)




I wore a pretty black and white cocktail dress and my big ribbon headband. To add some color, I paired it with my bright red cardigan and I felt like the belle of the ball in this outfit :)



What I wore

Dress & Headband: Seppälä; Helsinki
Tights: Esda
Home socks: Handmade by Mr.B's mom
Cardigan: H&M
Necklace: Heirloom from Grandma

I also would like to give you a closer look at my presents. Lots of people gave me handmade gifts and put a lot of thoughts in making my day very special. 


Blanket: knitted by my mom
Amiguromi (little kitty figures): made by my best friend J.
little bag and fortune cookie with gift card: knitted by my friend A.
pillows: sown by my mom

other presents: Flowers for my apartment, gift cards to Ikea & my favorite jewelry store and a japanese Tea pot and cups set. 

The best gift of all had to be the dancing course together with Mr.B. though! I love all of the presents, but the dancing course made me cry. He knows how much I love dancing and taking a course together means a lot to me. He himself is in for a challenge though, as leading me is not the easiest thing to do :D
