Twenty FOUR

 I kind of sort of mentioned my birthday on this blog and it was yesterday! I turned 24 on February 11 and boy was this past week was a week. I never get sick but on Wednesday night I admit defeat and I was sick. Without being too gross, my head was in a toilet for about half a day. I was in and out of my mind,  couldn't sit up, and could barely drink water. Getting sick was an interesting way to end my 23rd year of life and begin my 24th.. I had to quickly cancelled all of my plans for my birthday because the thought of food made me sick. This week was such a weird week. I was so sick I couldn't stand and the smell of food made me nauseated. My office mates brought me a cake and I couldn't even stand near it to blow out the candles!

The office cake. They're such sweeties.

And while I was sick in bed and couldn't eat food on my birthday, it was still a birthday success. Why you ask? Because my wardrobe is very happy.

I received all of my Jason Wu for Target purchases by my birthday.
The blue floral skirt is not pictured but I did get it. Can't wait to wear them all :)

When my family asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday, I shouted shopping! I may be too weak to eat, but I'm never too weak to shop!
Yes, my sister and I both went make up free because we were both recovering!

We then looked at pretty clothes & pretty shoes but I was good and didn't but everything I wanted.
 Giuseppe Zanotti booties beauties

Dries Van Noten pumps that I resisted. 

My birthday cream puff.

My birthday cake with lots of candles.

I spent the rest of the night listening to one of my friends perform with his band. That was the best present ever because I felt like a proud stage mom (even though he is older than I am...) Hope you're all having a great weekend so far!

  6. I hope that you're better now, about a month ago I had a stomach bug so I can sympathise, I had mine at night and had to have a bowl next to me incase I woke up and couldn't make it to the toilet! I could barely drink water without gagging either, but after being sick you just feel so dehydrated that you have to (although then I brought it back up again, eww). Anyway I'm glad that you still managed to have a nice time even if you couldn't blow out the candles on your birthday cake. Your shopping goodies look lush! xx

  7. Aww sorry to hear you were so sick but it looks like nothing can keep you from shopping ;p And you got some sweet treats too!
