it was 20 years ago today...

I had an incredible birthday weekend! I still can't believe I'm not a teenager anymore. I feel so OLD, like all of a sudden I need to turn into this wholly self-sufficient, responsible human being, and I feel so far from that.
The pictures from my birthday party on Friday night aren't the best quality, but c'est la vie.


(Half of the table, I kindof ruined this one, but I was starving)
Makeup done by Selam at Holt Renfrew on Bloor St (if you ever want your makeup done, she's incredible), private dinner at Sassafraz in Yorkville with my closest darlings, scallops, red wine, London Taphouse with other friends, tequila, McDonald's hamburger and finally, sleep. Spent my real birthday getting chocolate chip pancakes, going to Value Village and Indigo and then dinner with Mum and Dad at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.
Wearing a tutu blu dress, thrifted blazer, Aldo wedges and NARS lipstick in Schiap.
LOVE xx

  12. Happy Birthday!!! I know what you mean, I feel like I should be maturing and at least attempting to morph into a young Grace Kelly, but in reality I still feel like I'm eight sometimes!
    Haha and I love the pic of you eating, that's pretty much me in half my pictures, stuffing my face with something. Aha and your guy friend sitting down's face is priceless.

    PS can we trade hair for a day, please? =)

  28. Happy birthday! I'm turning 20 in 12 days, but I still feel young... My boyfriend is 27 and most of my friends are over 25. I'll always be the younger one. I hope I'll still feel like the younger one when I'm 50 or so ;) I've been accidentally saying I'm 20 for a while now.

    And also, wow, your face is so flawless.

  40. Hey now you have 20 years like me! I feel pretty old! Happy Birthday lovely! ♥
    Age of responsibility I agree, but too old to take things more adult life.. Finally, a new beginning. I hope you enjoy everything good in this age!
    And ah dinner with friends that seem so delicious and fun. You have many beautiful friends as well. Style everywhere!


    Good week Vic.
    Much love,

  117. hey, happy birthday! a little late, but anyway couldn't post on this entry without saying it! yeahh 20 can feel a little painful but then you get used to it sooooo easily! You get to meet people in their 20something and they just make you feel soooooooo young ;) 20 is soooo young, that missing teen thing is just great! Well I say this now, but it did take my time to get used to it!

    20 is such a cute number!
    enjoy!
