Birthday trinkets

I'm kind of a birthday brat. In our house I designate the whole week leading up to my big day the "birthday week". I know, I know, it is one of the busiest weeks of the year and here I go and make it ALL mine. I think it is a Christmas baby thing.

The one really good thing about holiday birthdays is that there are a lot of glitzy items floating around the thrift stores! So I decided to use some of them as birthday decor instead. Tinsel garlands are particularly cheap (25 to 50 cents a bagful)  and so I've got some ideas for those. As well as gold ribbon and a lovely pile of vintage pink floral ribbons. I'll show you what I did with it all later this week.

Amid my preparations I also dyed my hair a dark chestnut brown. I am feeling extra dramatic and glamorous with these new dark tresses.

And when I was supposed to be finishing my holiday shopping I scooped up a perfectly pink birthday skirt from Urban Outfitters. Don't worry, I got my holiday shopping done too~

And finally I want to congratulate my friend Angelica on the birthday of her brand new baby boy, Corbin this past weekend!!! Welcome to the holiday birthday baby club Corbin.
