As you might know it was my birthday this week & for the first time in years, I’ve actually celebrated my birthday over a couple of different days!
It has actually been nice to have a lot of different birthday celebrations with different people.
So the first little birthday celebration started a couple of days before my actual birthday, when my friend Carolin was on holiday in Copenhagen, she had brought a birthday present for me, which she gave me when we spent time together.
She had gotten me this amazing scented candle & a very pretty & lovely card, if you are a regular reader of my blog or follow me on any socialt media, you know that I LOVE scented candles.
To honest it is one of the best scented candles I have ever gotten, as you can see the scent is Bakery Cupcake & it smells absolutely heavenly, just like walking into a bakery! This was such a lovely, kind & thoughtful present & I just love it, & also I got some very good coconut snacks from Primark 😉
My birthday was on a Tuesday & cause my parents live an hour away & my dad works until 7 o’clock in the evening, they couldn’t be with me on my actual birthday, so instead they came to see me on Monday, cause my dad now has Monday’s off. They stayed in my apartment & had dinner ready for me when I came home from work & gave me my birthday present.
My parents have always been very supportive of all my temporary & permanent hobbies & sometimes crazy ideas, & they are very supportive about my blog & my love for photographing, so they got me the most amazing gift.
They have given me a day course with a Danish Fashion Photographer. She is a freelance fashion photographer & she has taken photos of Kate Moss, Josephine Skiver & photos backstage at shows like Burberry, Alexander McQueen & many more. I can’t wait & of course I’ll share the experience here on my blog.
Tuesday it was my actual birthday, which I celebrated with my friend Christina, when I got off work. We went out for dinner at a burger place called Cock’s & Cows, it was a very nice. After that we went to a park & just relaxed & enjoyed the sun, cause the weather was amazing, it was a really nice way to be celebrating my birthday!
My friend Kirstine’s birthday is also in May, her birthday is on May 31th, so this year we decided to throw a birthday party together. We have known each other for around 10 years now & have a lot of common friends, but also some who has never met each other.
The party was very succesfull & we all had such a great time, it is amazing when you can just put all your friends together & they can all have a good time, even though some of them have never met each other.
I got a lot of lovely presents yesterday, which I want to show you!
From my friend Kirstine, whom I throw the party with, her sister & her friend Nurit I got two fashion posters & a gift card for a department store.
I’m planning on putting the posters on the wall behind my couch.
From our common friend Nielsen I got this little box with a Hand Cream, Body Lotion & Shower-gel, I don’t know this brand, so I can’t wait to try it.
From my friend Christina I got a gift card for Starbucks (she is starting to know me too well & knows all about my crazy Starbucks addiction), also I got very lovely& personal card with an invitation for a picnic, which she is going to throw for me, I can’t wait for that.
From my friend Trille, I got this lovely vase, I just bought a new table, where I think it will look amazing on!
From my friend Katrine I got this very lovely & sweet card, it was very personal & thoughtful, also in the card was my present.
She invited me to a fashion & portrait photo exhibition by Mario Testiono & dinner afterwards. She is as passionate about photographing as me, so I can’t wait for us to go see the exhibition!
So as you can see I did a lot of birthday celebration this year, it was actually a very nice way to celebrate my birthday, surrounded by friends & family on different occasions, maybe I should make this a thing each year!
Have a lovely Sunday
