My 22nd Birthday

Hey everyone! Having a great day? My uni started this week. I only attended it for 2 days and fell sick. I'm feeling a lot better now, thank God, so I thought it'd write about my 22nd birthday.

My birthday was actually fun this year! I spent the morning alone (my sisters were asleep, and my parents were at work) but I used that time to pamper my skin and took a very long jabeen-style shower. Shower makes me happy :-3.

I searched for my favorite chocolate cake recipe (I keep a recipe folder), which has chocolate stains on it ^_^. I always use it for birthdays. I also found a really great recipe for butter cream frosting. For the first time ever my frosting turned out nice and thick! And I made some mean roses. My birthday gift from God, I guess ^_^.

I've always wanted to make these roses on cakes! I'm gonna try a mint colored cake with peach roses next time, that would be a sight! <3 I wore the Nishat shirt my sister gifted me, it's a gorgeous cotton-silk type short kurta with ajrak print, and my little sister gave me a card (she always makes me a card on my birthday and they are always hilarious ^_^). I had already went out shopping many times during the vacations, and so I didn't ask for anything, but my parents still gave me money. I'll be spending that on some makeup or nail art supplies!

I actually wanted to go to the beach. But it was a weekday and my dad was too tired to drive somewhere far (the story of my life, just kidding ^_^), so we went out for a buffet dinner at Shan-e-Mughlia, 'cause it's near my place. It was seriously cold that day (it always gets realllyyy cold on my birthday) and the restaurant has no temperature control 'cause it's built in a garden. It was nice, still, and I ate to my heart's content, that's always fun, right? :-D. I lovedddd their pasta the best.

So, that was the day. Not much but I had a good time with my family ^_^. Now, what does 22 feel like? Not much different than 21! :-P But I got to quote Taylor Swift's '22' over and over again and probably bummed out a lot of people, so that was cool! :-D
