Birthday recap

Hey y'all! Time has been seriously flying since my last post. And my big birthday is already dusty, spider web covered history but I thought I would still kindly share it with you in today's quick comeback post. And I swear this time I really mean it when I say "quick" because I'm already working on a review where I'm putting a certain beauty device to the test for the very first time in my life. So be prepared for my experience with that "mysterious" gadget but right now I'm going to share a few words about the birthday.

The right day of my big 3-0 was June 14, a Tuesday and also a regular 8,5-hour workday. So I decided to celebrate my birthday on June 18, the next Saturday after the actual day. And since it (obviously) was my biggest birthday so far I picked a cosy little café called Kohvik O (see their online home here) for the extensive feast and family gathering. It's around 30 km from my hometown and there were 11 people around the three round tables.

The menu included parmesan breaded chicken with mint sauce, fresh salad and potato chips for the main course, good old Brita cake for dessert and antipasti, cheese and fruit selection plus lavash rolls for snacks. Kohvik O's food was delicious as always and I can assure you everyone was at least slightly groaning after we had finished. In fact - I kind of miss the main course. Those potato chips with mint sauce were really awesome!

Anyway, the first group of photos, taken at the café, is Pillery's Photography's colourful creation and you can visit her beautiful home page here, Facebook page here and Instagram account here. But the very first photo of today's post was taken with my phone during an almost 24-hour-long blackout we were "lucky" enough to experience after we got home from the party.

Below I also have a second bunch of photos* where for one thing you can see my very simple outfit of the (birth)day. Everything except my good old thrifted jacket came from Tenerife and was super cheap. And then there are 5 random snaps of some of my lovely presents to illustrate today's thematic and slightly relieve some potential curiosity.
*mostly taken by me during the previously mentioned blackout, except those quick outfit snaps the husband took with my phone

So I hope you enjoyed this quick birthday recap and like I already mentioned - a review is coming up next time. Our long-awaited summer vacation is also finally here and so will shortly be our day trip to Helsinki and other cool things. Till next time... which will hopefully definitely come sooner than a month!
