Shoe # 27 – Happy Birthday

So tomorrow is my birthday. I used to like that but lately, I got hit by the fact that I’m so close to turn 40 that I started to have a mid-life crisis type of thing. I see every single wrinkle on my face every time I look in the mirror, I just notice the “parenthesis” mark next to my mouth and I feel I need a face lift. All of this plus the fact I’ve never lost all the weight I gain during my pregnancy.

Celebrating a birthday it’s not so fun for me anymore. I didn’t want to do anything but end up calling 3 other couples for a Taco Night at my place yesterday.

This is what I wore:

WHAT: Banana Republic black bow shoes
WHEN: Saturday, October 15th
WHERE: Birthday party at home
WITH: Pants and top from Banana Republic*, Aldo Accessories bracelet, Guess watch, earrings and necklace from Iran (gift from hubby from last time he went to visit his family), headband from World Market (last year’s birthday gift from a friend)
* I just notice I’m almost like a Banana Republic live catalog!

Now, remember when I said here that sometimes I can’t resist to the matchy-matchy thing. Well, look what I did yesterday:

I matched my nail polish with my pants!! I was dying to use those pants and I was also dying to try this polish that I asked my friend to bring from Brasil (Colorama Militar) because nail polishes in Brasil are waaaaay cheaper than here in USA. I know the bottle is smaller but who can finish a whole bottle of polish anyways. This color is a copy of the famous Chanel Khaki Vert and I think Colorama did a pretty good job. And I paid less than $3.00 while the Chanel ones costs waaaaaay more (I think in USA it is around $25.00). I’m pretty happy with my Colorama 😉

And here is me blowing the candles with my little helpers:

Here with me are my husband, my daughter and the little boy is the son of one of my friends.

PS.: It’s not 52 on the candles, it’s a 25. These were the only candles I found in the house so I thought it would be funny to to put them together. I turned 25 long, long time ago…tomorrow is the 12th anniversary of my 25th birthday!

Cheers!
