Belated birthday update (with a video!)

Hello lovelies. Thanks for your comments. I just adore all my nephews. They make me so happy. As I mentioned before I was going to give a belated update on my birthday. It was an Instagram day but I wanted to document everything. 

Jason and I took the day off. He surprised me with some lilies and cheesecake. 

We had breakfast at Max Brenner at Southbank. Glad I got a cappuccino instead of hot chocolate. There was even a piece of chocolate in the coffee!

We got waffles for two. Delicious but filling. 

We walked over the bridge from Southbank into the City. They have the farmers markets every Wednesday. Lots of food. I wanted to take more photos but there were so many people and it was a stinkin' hot day (meaning I wanted to be in air conditioning and all the hot food was making feel worse). 

Afterwards, we went over to Paddington just beyond the city. This is Rara Superstar. I have mentioned this shop a few times. 

This was a random juice place. So tiny but quaint and the juice was refreshing on the hot day. 

There are a lot of pretty buildings in Paddington. I would go to this art classes just because it's held in a cute place. 

Some amazing stores! 

When we got home I was surprised to see this package from lovely Alyssa. 

SO beautifully wrapped. 

The butterfly ring she gave me. 

My awesome pinwheel pen she gave me. It was such a beautiful and thoughtful package! 

At night we went out for dinner to Sugo Mi. It's delicious. For some reason I forgot to take photos of the rest of the day. All in all it was fun and adventurous. 

Now this video was done in the afternoon with my messy hair because it was too hot to leave it down. I hate being in front of a camera and I felt so awkward doing this so please don't judge me too harshly :P

Have a wonderful rest of week.
