The Edit

Tuesday, 6 October 2015


I'm just going to put it out there in case it's not glaringly obvious yet - I love lists. I'm a listaholic. I can give you a list of why I love lists. So here's a list of 24 things from today. I have this birthdayzilla thing down to a T (I had a friend call me the night before to say happy birthday and said that they were calling now to get in early because if they knew that if they didn't call at midnight I'd probably be mad. Where is the lie tho) and today was awesome thanks to the great people I have in my life! Thank you for all the birthday messages. I am resisting the urge to post a selfie with #blessed as caption right now.

1. I had this on repeat as I got ready this morning. Ultimate happy song!
2. My lips were on fleek today special thanks to my new lipsticks. Kylie Jenner hu dat. 
3. First thing I saw at work today were the chocolates and lovely card from a beautiful colleague.
4. Got the cutest little bouquet of flowers from a colleague that he picked and arranged from his garden. Complete with foliage and all. I was v v v surprised and v v v happy!
5. Text messages and phone calls from friends just to greet me a happy birthday #feltspecial #lovehearingyourvoice
6. Visits and unexpected drop offs at work. My desk looked like this at the end of the day!
7. A bouquet of toffee pops thanks to my great mayt Khayt.
8. Getting taken out to lunch and having pancakes. I mean seriously... BIRTHDAY PANCAKES AM I RIGHT?
9. I was at work all day but had a real cool and fun photoshoot so it was all good in the hood!
10. My birthday outfit is a $15 top and a $15 skirt from The Warehouse. It was black. And quite lacy. And I want to wear it forever.
11. The amazing Mandy dropped off some afternoon treats (more flowers and in the vase I wanted for ages!) and said she was going to go get me some white sheets (as per the wishlist) from Bed, Bath, and Beyond but she didn't know what size bed I had. My heart melted when she said this <3
12. The very beautiful bouquet from Miss Daisy that was waiting for me in reception after lunch took my breath away.
13. After work, Simon and I went to Carls Jr for Oreo shakes. It was glorious. We also had fries. And I may have eaten a burger too. 
14. Perhaps the best part of the day was when Simon told me about his upcoming overseas trip to the US and I literally yelled out that he was going to be in America in the most glorious season of all - Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte season!!! That was the happiest I have ever seen him. We talked about it for about half an hour. He changed his profile photo to a Pumpkin Spice Latte. 
15. We had a shared morning tea at work today for numerous reasons and it was really nice and lots of croissants were had.
16. Polaroid selfies are always such a leap of faith when you click that button because you just never know if you're in the frame or now.
17. My brothers made me a card and gave me $20 birthday money. Best present ever!
18. Brand new speakers mean even louder music when I wake up and before I go to bed. Thank you mum and dad! 
19. For my birthday dinner I really didn't want to go out so we ordered my fave meal - BBQ pork and duck - with heaps of rice. Same spread I had last year. Might be a tradition in the making!
20. I had dinner in my fat pants and a big sweater. Fingers crossed not an omen for how this year is going to look like.
21. I'm kind of running out of things to say. 
22. Red velvet cake with cream cheese icing is the ultimate cake. Best part is I could only eat a small bite so there's basically a whole cake sitting there for the week.
23. I kind of really really like being 24 already.
24. Oh look, here's a #blessed selfie:
