Happy Birthday to Me!


{Drawing by Lau, inspired by Sai}

I received so many amazing messages and lots of love on my birthday this year. Thank you, thank you, for all your sweet messages!

I wanted to share something that made me smile a really big smile.

My friend Sai wrote this on my Facebook wall this morning:  Happy happy happyyyyyyy birthday my little Mini!!! Magic and love and rainbows and unicorns to you on this day but most importantly on this whole new chapter of your life!

My friend Lau saw the message and decided she liked it so much that she went out and bought crayons, and drew it out for me  (above).

I don’t think it gets much cuter than that! I have amazing friends.

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who brighten up every single one of my days, not just my birthday.

Blueberry Pancakes

{pancakes, blueberry compote, buttery maple syrup}

These adorable and delicious-looking blueberry pancakes are straight out of Jamie Beck’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Don’t they look irresistible?

I, of course, will be attempting to make a version of these mini-cakes at home.

Simple message

My friend Pati found this image online (unknown source) and shared it on Facebook. I think it’s a simple yet powerful message, so here I am, paying it forward.

PS. I miss telling you about my happy things, now that I’ve completed the entire project. However, I’m working on a new idea that I hope to be sharing soon!

Blogger Spotlight: Home is where the heart is.


{Visit Home is where the heart is for more.}

I find that I become completely enthralled whenever I am going through an interior design magazine, or in this case, blog.

By the time I realized what was happening, I had clicked through at least 30 photos, trying to decide which home I’d choose if I could just pick any one of them.

This blog is a compilation of beautiful photos of beautiful homes. I hope the photos captivate you just as much. Enjoy.

Bob Harris

{See this and other Celebrity Caricatures @ Fubiz}

As I recently mentionedLost In Translation is one of my favorite movies. Having said that, the minute I found this I just had to share.

It looks exactly like Bob Harris (Bill Murray). His facial expressions are captured to a tee. This is one of the funniest scenes in the movie. I think this caricature is genius. I’m still smiling.
