twenty-six candles

there really is no turning back. i am not getting any younger and the best thing to do is just to enjoy life as it comes ---- making to sure to make the most out of every moment and make a fool out of myself, if needed. so for my twenty-sixth birthday, i dyed my hair to a really light shade of brown, bought myself two books --- haruki murakami's 'norwegian wood' and nicholas sparks' 'dear john' (yes, i'm sentimental like that), spent the weekend at the beach and danced under the rain!

harry was so sweet and gave me a bouquet of lilies and three pairs of sandals. just what i asked for! after the 3 hour ride from the beach, my family and i had dinner at a filipino restaurant and ended the night eating frozen yogurt -- our latest obsession. 

printed boho dress - thrifted
pink headband - torn off from my fringe shirt
necklaces: round imprinted - gifted from gelie | dogtags - custom-made
bangles: gun-metal and blue - props | wooden - raw materials store
