Last Sunday it was my birthday and it was a kind of non-event. The husband was neck deep in work and due to the lunar new year the post was delayed so no packages to open... But I did get a ton of birthday emails and messages, and my lovely family Skyped me and they all sang Happy Birthday, and I made myself a delicious birthday dinner and got to do some crafting (and watched Catfish - oh my!) so it was a pretty good day all in all.
Then, as a birthday treat to myself I escaped to Hong Kong for two nights! I may have mentioned this before but I seriously adore Hong Kong. It was sunny and warm and the sky was blue and the air almost clear (a rare occurrence). I got my hair cut for the first time in months and months (what a difference!) and had my nails painted a very bright hue and I looked at lots of pretty things. It was a lovely indulgence, I am a very lucky lady.
Here are some of my favourite shots from the trip (you'll find more on my Flickr, soon) - I especially love the one below of a gorgeous kid walking by some transparent lunar new year decorations. Kind of looks like she has a shiny pink aura bursting from her, don't you think?
