Birthday ♥ + Awesome giveaway!

Another year passes, another reason to look/feel/act younger than I actually am...


I hate having to feel this way as a woman...instead of the distinguished, mature, desirable aging of a man, time is every woman's mortal enemy...

In reality, I'm not too bummed out by turning 27. ;) Thanks for all the words of encouragement from you lovely ladies! I know age is just a's just that sometimes I feel a lot younger than I actually am... I might have once thought that I would be married with kids at 28 but sometimes, life doesn't go exactly as planned - the unpredictability is what makes things so beautiful though. You never know what's around the corner!


Just thought I'd share a few photos from my b-day weekend with you :)

Aaww Happy Belated birthday Irene! :D You finally got your hand on Laneige's water sleeping pack huh? ;D Love your FOTD! So simple and cute =)

Liana said...

happy bday! looks like you got some great stuff! haha, i feel the same way you do about aging (ps. im the same age as you!) but i try not to think about it and instead see it as a positive thing-you're old enough to do whatever you want, but look young enough to get away with it! :)

Irene said...

@LittoMokaa - Thanks!!! :) And unfortunately, the Water Sleeping Pack was STILL sold out when I purchased - so that is just the eyecream :(

@Liana - I had no idea! You still look like you are in undergrad dear (and I mean that as a compliment ;)) Haha...that's a great what to think about it too!

sophia said...

Oh my I love those lashes on you! I love how they're more towards the outer eye, looks really pretty! And you look so cute sitting there opening your goodies :)

What kind of laneige products did you get?? And omg you got so many Dolly Wink! Isn't their packaging fantastic??

And yes.. I agree ~ you never know what's around the corner! Life can be unpredictable at times, and you find you're in a place that you never imagined you would be :)

Happy Belated bday!!!

Jo said...

Happy belated birthday Irene! No worries! You don't look 27 at all.

What a coincidence! My birthday just passed a few days ago too and guess what? You've someone here older than your 27 year-old self! Haha.. Yours truly at 28! =( I feel so old whenever I blog hop and see every gorgeous babe in their early 20s or even teens!

I feel like you too! I think age is just a number and I feel energetic and am doing a lot more stuff than I used to a few years back. It's like raring to fulfil all dreams before I get even older.

Enjoy your weekend!

Rachel said...
