The little things: twenty something

Since I celebrated my twenty fifth (!!!) birthday last weekend, so my little things are mostly about that day. I wanted it small and only with my closest friends and it was perfect! My sister and I made some delicious sweets the day before. And at midnight my father, boyfriend, sister and sisters boyfriend sang me four different birthday songs all at once! Hihi. Going through the pictures of that weekend still makes me smile.

In honor of the fact that Android users can now use Instagram (Hooray!) I collected my faves for you in Instagram style. Hope these will make you smile with me :)

What are you looking at?

1 MAKING the most delicious chocolate cupcakes with my sister. Enough calories for the whole week, but so good! 2 BIRTHDAY sweets: little cupcakes made by our niece Roos, homemade coconut cookies (granny’s recipe), my moms mandarin cheesecake and the chocolate cupcakes. Yummy! 3 CELEBRATING this special day with the lovely Loraine :) (how do you like my butterfly dress?) 4 PERFECT and cute cooking book i got from my daddy. It looks like a scrapbook and has the best recipes in it. And THE book of The Selby for some inspiration on the coffee table. (Without coffee because i don’t want any coffee on my books!) 5 TWO perfect gifts. A golden retro Casio watch from the boyfriend and an simple and elegant bracelet from my family. It has a little cross (on its side) in the middle and stands for ‘Hope, love and protection’. 6 & 7 GETTING the apartment ready for spring which means: cleaning (made Domo smile), organizing (all books by color. Yes i know) and some DIY projects on our wall. We’re collecting some favorite prints and things to spice up our wall. Work in progress.

Enjoy the little things!

Love, Sari

Wishlist: best friends

Ph / A Beautiful Mess

Of course it’s not the best friends I’m wishing for, but those cute Iphone cases i bumped into yesterday. Yesterday iΒ celebrated my twenty fifth (yes!) birthday and my best girlfriends came over with an insane amount of presents AND a homemade “Hummingbird” birthday cake! Lucky me! It was amazing having them and my dear family all together and this picture was the perfect one to end the day with.

Now i only have to wait for my Iphone (for about 3-4 months, but the waiting is fun ^^) and buy me and my girls a pretty case!

Have a lovely sunday and stay tuned for a special birthday post!

Love, Sari

The little things: Birthday flowers

Since it’s my little sisters birthday, i wanted to share some happy little things with you! My day on the other hand didn’t start that happy. Dutch trains are (mostly) a disaster so my trip to that same sister took a little longer. Too bad, i have so much songs to sing and gifts to give ;) Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Love, Sari
