Last week end I had my birthday celebrations a little early, as my birthday is may 20th and fell on a wednesday this year. Two days worth of celebrations !
So I just turned 26. I'm always a little apprehensive about birthdays because I don't like doing celebrations for myself. I never thought birthdays were something much important, but it's still nice to go out anyways. In this last year a lot of stuff have happened so I thought this year might be worth celebrating.
So on saturday, I had planned to go to this japanese Izakaya in town which has a very cool real izakaya decor ! I had invited a few friends to come have fun with me. The food was good, we had good fun !
One of my friends was also back from a short stay in Japan so I got some yummy goodies !
Classic but good treats !
She also brought me back some very adorable socks that I had asked for :)
My other friend offered me a Sephora Gift Card, which is always welcome, because Sephora is heaven. And then after some fun, discussions and much food, we of course wanted some dessert, and went to get some frozen yogurt !
All these delicious calories <3
We had fun ! Everyone went home after our dinner, and I'm really glad my friends came and enjoyed their evening <3 I had to go sleep well as my family was coming over the next day, and that usually promises some needed energy.
My parents arrived with my sister after lunch time and came in to chat a little, while my dad installed my birthday gift.... An air conditioner *_* so now I can survive summer without becoming a little sweat puddle ! So exciting.
After that was done, we went downtown to walk around a little before dinner, and I ended up going into a hip-hop store with my sister (she's into hip-hop and all this kind of stuff can you believe it ahaha) and we checked out shoes and other things ! Then we walked down to the port to go eat at the restaurant, Zibo. I didn't know about it until my sister told me she tried it in her city, so we went at the one location in my city. And the food. It was amazing !
I shared this amazing shredded duck poutine entree with my mom, and it was glorious. The sauce was a little peppery and the duck was great. I loved it ! And for my meal I got a terriyaki noodles sauté that was as great as the rest. My parents didn't leave too late as they had 3 hours worth of driving to go back home, but I was OK with that as I had work early the next morning.
Overall I had a nice birthday week-end. It's still overwhelming thinking I just turned 26. I just don't like thinking about my age at all. Anyways, I suppose I don't have a choice !
Soon I'll post pictures of recent shopping and the new Moi-même-moitie collection as well ! :)
