My B’de 2014

10th August, 2014.

My Cinderella moment… just before the clock struck 12.

Happy B’de to me…




The final click!DSCN8715


The center-spread. The watches I gifted myself two days back and perfume my classmate gifted. Mary was right on time this year for my birthday. My fave Wenger’s butter-scotch cake and a glass of water. The wine candle was hunted for lit singly. DSCN8717

Breakfast on b’de morning. Strawberry flavored oats!DSCN8727

Issey Miyake I have been lusting for since November last year. Gifted the belated present the following day – 12th August, 2014. The rest of them are my all time faves. Best fumes since over ten years.


Whatever else I bought when I went out to get the spirit!DSCN8737

Double take. Butter scotch cake paired with butterscotch ice-cream. Didn’t Sundae as had planned, barely recovered of typhoid only a week back.DSCN8753

“Get some cherries in a cup for ma’am. She loves nibbling…”
“Since when?”, I thought.
The person I know since many years at Wenger’s gives me freebies on my visits. You are looking at those… This was my second cake after a week on 17th August, a bigger one this time. I loved nibbling the red ones alright!DSCN8759

I have never bought any singly before. I either gifted to people buying none for self or bought in pairs for someone while coupling one for self too. My first ever time pieces again bought in pairs over two days… this time, all for self

This pigeon fairy visited just a few days later to extend their wishes. This isn’t the first time I held a pigeon and on my b’de. The custom recurs on special days and b’des.DSCN8766

    Nice birthday choices, Olivia. That butterscotch cake sounds scrumptious! I like that your pigeon friends let you hold them on occasion. Doesn’t it feel like a special blessing when a wild bird or animal lets you pet or hold them? I love that. I always gift myself on my birthdays too. 🙂 Blessings and hugs…

      Totally Gayle! I feel they come around to wish me. For this, I consider myself to be special. I find it serenely strange how these feather fairies let me per them.
      Now I’m sitting on diet of oats… That cake has to disappear off me 😉

      Thank you for your blessings, hugs xx

    You are special for sure…don’t forget it! Your feathered fairies were sent there to remind you of it 🙂 xoxo

    Yes of course I forgot to mention the little feathered friend of yours, I care for the wildlife and birds of all kinds in my backyard, but my feathered friends come close but I have not been able to pet them,,,,, The point is you were chosen and you are special..
    Many more blessings to you

    Happy Birthday and many, many more.

    Wow! There are more goodies in this post than I can count.

    I’ve followed your sites for some time. As if I’ve watched you grow and mature. I have never loved someone; I dare to say no one more that you; as I love myself, my “Kindred Spirit”, INDEED; from across the world yet so near.
