C’est ma vie: Birthday week

As much as I like reading beauty and fashion blogs, I’ve always loved it when bloggers do vlogs or ‘my week in photos’ type posts that give us a sneak peek into their lives. My life isn’t too interesting, but I thought it would be nice if I could include my readers and friends in some of the fun aspects of my life. So here goes my first attempt!

So, my birthday was two days ago on the 13th of December, but the celebrations began a week earlier on the 6th, with my baby shower! It was a traditional bangle ceremony where all the women closest to me (family and friends) came and blessed me and the baby by putting bangles on my wrists.

It was a lovely morning and I loved being pampered by friends and family alike!
This was followed by another major occasion – my 3rd wedding anniversary on the 12th. It was the first one that my husband and I have spent apart which sucked, but my parents and brother did their best to keep any sadness at bay. Right from a card at midnight to flowers as soon as I woke up to a delicious Thai dinner, they really pulled out all the stops!

We got home from dinner and settled in to watch a movie, so that everyone would stay awake to usher in my birthday at midnight. And you know what else midnight brought with it? A cake!!! I am seriously super lucky to be part of such a loving family!


That wasn’t all though! We went out again on 13th night! My parents bought me some jewellery and then we all went for an Indian dinner, which was the perfect end to the perfect day (and week!). I don’t have any pictures of us from dinner, because we were too busy eating, but I did take a quick snap of the food!


And that’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this little window into my life. Stay tuned for the birthday haul/gift post(s) that are coming up soon! 😀

(P.S. I haven’t said this explicitly on this blog anywhere but I’m currently 8 months pregnant and staying at my parents place in India, waiting for the arrival of my little one. It sucks to be away from my home in Lyon, France and my husband but there was no way I could have managed the last few months of this pregnancy on my own!)
