It's Your Birthday

Pucker up, The Stylist turned 10 today.
The wee lassie is growing up and it's simply glorious to watch.
Especially through sparkly pink sunnies.


And she's very happy to contemplate the future with her new purple shades.


She had a super-fun sunny outdoor party yesterday and today she and I turned the volume down a bit with some Valley market browsing and lunch in Chinatown.

I bought her the purple sparkly sunnies (her favourite colour) and she wore them all day with her embroidered Mexican cotton frock, the lovely blue necklace gifted to The Stylist by the goddess Krista and plenty of "tattoos".


The glorious beauty of my favourite puta, La Dama, may have subconsciously fed our hearts and minds with the power of Dia de los Muertos.


Leather vest, pink and purple sparkly sunglasses - Etsy
Refashioned 1930s onsie into top - eBay
Headband - more in my shop Sassy Vamps!
Leggings - Black Milk
1960s beauty case, bangles, bracelets and earrings - thrifted
Sugar skull necklace - Creative Markets
Docs - retail





Patiently waiting for yum cha and green tea.

The Stylist never fails to marvel at lovely people who bring trolleys of strange and wonderful  food for her to sample.
If there's something she doesn't fancy, mama's always there to lick the bowl clean.
And there's always yummy green tea to settle the tum.


The spicy calamari and the seafood dumplings disappeared in minutes.


Full to bursting.
Now we just have to roll down the street back to the car.



Happy birthday to my lovely girl, a talented photographer, wonderful artist, comedienne extraordinare and bundle of funnage.
Oh and since I'm certainly not dead yet, I'm linking up to Patti's Visible Monday.
I hope you too have enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing Sunday my lovely friends:).
Baci,
Desiree xo
