Piling on rings

I just love piling on rings as a simple yet a chic way to complete an outfit or even to completely change its mood.

Hello Kitty Pink Party♥

Everyone of us have our own childhood dream...  I am a big Sanrio fan! I remember whenever we go to Unimart in Greenhills shopping center i always wanted to stop by Gift gate.  To buy a pencil with pencil cap of course or even a small memo pad or sticker...My favorite characters were My Melody and of course Hello Kitty.  I still have some of them... like my mirror and comb compact, old pencils and stamp.  

I have always wanted to have a Hello Kitty Theme Party. ♥  So i promised myself, i'll do it on my 40th birthday.  I was really excited in preparing it! (Well, i really enjoy party planning.) I started with the concept... what i really want..!?  I wanted the party to be intimate... with my family, close friends.. those who made a mark / were with me in my 40s.  


The planning was exciting... i did a couple of research online... i even went to Divisoria with my brother to find the stuff i need.  For my menu: it should be Japanese even though Hello Kitty was British. - Chicken Teriyaki, Pork Tonkatsu, California Maki, for Beverage: Four seasons and Dessert: Stramberry ice cream with pink pretzel (should be pink).  Aside from that i baked brownies and of course it's Pinoy's tradition to have pancit for long life... i cooked spaghetti.

My Grade 1 best friend Ena brought some eggnog and a cute Hello Kitty Cake... aside from that i ordered Hello Kitty Cupcakes from my College friend Jo Venes.

On the tables, i decorated it with a balloon centerpiece (i personally made) and glass vase with candies.  Purple and pink shawl feathers on our stair's railing made it more fabulous!  I also displayed some of my HK collections...

For the favors i made some big bow Fuchsia Headband plus an additional HK ballpen/keychain...

There was also an acoustic jamming with my former band mate JR and my guest singer Pam... well of course i sang a couple of songs too...

It was really a fun birthday... even my Highschool best friend Tweet flew to Manila from Guam just to attend... 

Overall it feels GREAT! Being with the people close to my heart... celebrating with me... and having a party... that i have always wanted...
