Long time no see, my sweeties :) Or should I even say especially long time no see?
Well, I guess it doesn't actually matter anymore since I'm finally here and in proud possession of two different sets of summery photos and collages tensely waiting to be shared. Those pictures will conjointly partially show you what I have been up to in June, my summery birthday and holiday month.
So, for one important thing I celebrated my 27th birthday on the 14th (the right day) and on the 15th of June. By the way, my summer vacation also began on the 14th and that day additionally stood for crucial manicure, a required hectic hour in the office and a refreshing visit to the hairdresser (she used an exclusive technique called Flamboyage from Davines to make my tricolour streaks but you'll see those already in another post). Anyway, on June 14 we celebrated the special event together with my parents, brother and grandparents. And besides the always obvious barbecuing I made a chocolate truffle cake and our very first sandwich cake with ham and cheese (and garlic.. quite a lot of it, to be precise).

Fishbone dress | thrifted waist-belt | Oriflame bracelet.
When it comes to presents I received my very first Chanel nail colour (in beautiful coral shade 647 Lilis; Limited Edition, by the way!) for one thing and since it was a first I wanted to share it with you too. By the way, have you recently experienced "a first" in your life? It can be absolutely anything!
Talking about my birthday, we celebrated it once again on the 15th with my fiancé's parents and sisters. And once again we barbecued but additionally served vegetable salad with potatoes and mozzarella and banana-Nutella muffins (that I also made today for E.'s little relatives who absolutely loved those :).
All in all I had delightful time with the people who are close to me and this is definitely the best thing when it comes to birthdays. Nevertheless I didn't unfortunately take too many photos but you can still see two of my ensembles (including my fabulous thrifted vintage maxi dress) from June 14 and some other various b'day snapshots from both days.
On a completely different note my monochrome photos are slightly older but I still wanted to show you those as well because I quite like it how they turned out and they're from June anyway.
My next, once again colourful post, on the other hand will probably tell you about our day trip to Helsinki, Finland. It took place on June 18 and was one extremely
long-lasting exhausting yet eventful trip. So, keep your eyes open for that and I'll "see" you already next time (soon, I hope!)!
