Red trousers and birthday celebrations

I know you all don't see me wear trousers that often, but let me tell you that I'm really loving these red trousers! They were a birthday present from my brother Daniel, and I love how they make me look long and lean.

In the afternoon, I bought some cupcakes to surprise a friend on her birthday, don't they look deeeelish?! I thought it was a cute coincidence that the Red Velvet cupcake (my favorite!) combined with my outfit today ;)

Today I celebrated one of my best friends' birthdays by going out for sushi dinner and bringing her a huuuuugggee present. Inside this big box, there were several smaller wrapped gifts that she had to dig out amongst all the stuffing. She was SO excited every time she found a new present inside the box ;)

Happy birthday once more Maite, you are a magnificent friend. Thank you for everything!

  3. Oh Marie, you are just the sweetest friend a girl could have! That's totally what I think, at least. :) You're so lovely in all that you do! And those cupcakes look scrumptious. I hope your fiend had an amazing birthday!

    This outfit is so incredible. I never consider wearing pants but I would totally wear this outfit because those high waisted pants are just stunning. I love the big jewel necklace and earrings, too!
