birthday part deux

i had dinner with my friends liz, priscilla & yang at this place in pasadena called 'pop' to celebrate my and liz's birthdays (she turned 21 a couple of weeks ago). i found out about it when i was googling a recipe for champagne cupcakes, and it was one of the first things that popped up. plus, there are $4 bellinis and mimosas if you go between 4 and 7 on a wednesday!

it's a champagne and dessert bar. unfortunately, after dinner we didn't have any room for dessert (dang) so next time we go, we'll have to try some. the place is so cute! there are chandeliers, plush booths for dinner seating, and the tables have retro and vintage themed findings under glass.

bellinis, mimosa, sparkling wine & truffle goat cheese bruschetta (yum!)

me and priscilla laughing after i open my gift from liz because i got her the SAME EXACT COCKTAIL SHAKER.

oh god. i look crazy (drunk). just so you know, liz got that martini glass and shaker for me. they're empty. promise.

i love my friends.

let's end this post with a few birthday outfits, yes? and my nails.

birthday dinner with the family (sunday): white bow headband + top (forever 21), jeans (paris blues), open-toe pink skimmers (betseyville)

birthday dinner with my sister, tritia (tuesday, my actual birthday): tiara (gift for my 17th birthday, haha), plaid dress (kensiegirl), wide black elastic belt (forever 21), black sandals that everyone seems to have (classified)

birthday dinner with friends (wednesday): black and white silk gingham dress (betsey johnson), black booties (birthday gift from my friend yang, remember? charlotte russe), black bow headband (forever 21)

glittery champagne nail polish ('angel' by hard candy) with white accents and heart stickers. most of the stickers peeled off today though. :(

it was more like a birthweek than a birthday. and grandma wants to take me to get delicious fatty cheeseburgers at charlie brown's on sunday. yes! i'll celebrate for as long as i can. ;)

i just realized i still haven't eaten the tiramisu dad got for me. agh.

Happy Birthday! What ever gave you the idea to search for champagne cupcakes (and where can I find some!LOL)

Sounds like a fun place.

lol, thanks!
my friend told me that she made some champagne cupcakes for her birthday and i wanted to make some too. my friend told me it was basically a white cake mix with half a cup of champagne in it. i couldn't find any places that sold them, so i tried to look up the recipe. ;D
