dainty necklace / iced starbucks / bouquet / celebratory balloon / recent mascara fav / all time favorite snack
T G I F.
Longest hardest week ever... and it's over! I cannot be happier.
Despite the whirlwind of work, there were small bits (and one huge news) that made me very happy.
This dainty necklace. (Love mixing metals)
Drinking more iced starbucks while it's still warm. (Passionfruit tea lemonade!)
Maybelline Falsies Volume Mascara. (Accentuates individual lashes. Writing a full review on this next week.)
My favorite TV junk food fix. (American snacks are considered fancy imports and are extremely overpriced in Hong Kong. I was excited to find my favorite Rold Gold Pretzels on sale - tastes extra good because it's rare and special here)
And finally... the good news. A good friend of mine had her baby this Wednesday. It's a boy! It feels so grown up to have a friend give birth... for the very first time. I headed straight to the hospital after work that day to see her and the new little one. Of course I couldn't go empty handed - a friend and I ordered a last minute bouquet and grabbed a cheesy "NEW BABY!" balloon on the way.
He is the most beautiful bundle of joy I've seen. And I'm so glad the new mommy is doing so well too.
Before I left the hospital, I asked the new mommy: "how did it feel? did the birth make you and hubby feel more in love?"
She paused, then smiled: "I feel like... we're really a family now."
Warmth beyond words. :)
