Birthday girl

Hello everyone! Here I am again nothing special just one year older…Yes, yesterday was my b-day, and a birthday post was all I could think about this morning….So let’s begin, shall we? You know how you see in all those cheese movie or youtube video how everyone wake’s up on they’re special morning super pretty and super full of life? And also how those particular days turn out to be surprisingly awesome minute by minute, filled with exiting things or news surrounded by presents everywhere… well THAT IS NOT WHAT HAPPENS IN REALITY ( WELL FOR ME AT LEAST) …NOPE NOT A CHANCE.

Let me tell you what really happened to me this year:

I had an awful night before … the kind where you hear some upsetting news and you end up eating your feelings?Which obviosly leads straight to n°2…

Film Title: Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Insomnia, anxiety…no way you are gonna get your 7 hours beauty sleep… by the way your not gonna get any sleep… ever…ok that is maybe to extreme but you surely gonna stay all night like this!

It’s morning finally… the all week has been sunny and bright … so when you open your window this is what you get.. ah reality so much better than expectations….

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, it starts with a wonderful piece of cake your favorite obviously and there it is finally a perfectly fancy true way to spend your birthday… that moment lasted less than 3 seconds oh yeah, thanks toothacke  for ruining breakfast !

Calm and tradition… as usual since birthday n°1 morning I spent it in doing absolutely nothing… which is awesome for lazy people like myself… later around lunch time I prepare myself for a nice stroll outside ( when the sun finally turns the day around…) but highlights even the fact that I have big swollen panda eyes, but hey no worries, it’s nothing that concealer and my strongest foundation can’t fix!! Lunch with mom and matter how old you are … tradition it’s tradition.. and everything it’s great!!

Everything is going so well… that for a moment…. it seems to good to be through… than again time flies when you are having fun and it’s middle afternoon when you decide to go get your birthday cake for your dinner party… yes it’s wonderful when you realize that they misspelled “josephine” into Josfphin… perfect


But hey, once again no big deal everything looks great… and people are kind enough to fix everything, right? The day is also coming to an end what else can go wrong…AND THERE IT IS… your CAR TEMPORALLY DIES…


Panic, anxiety, fear…and hysterical laugh…it’s saturday no one is working ( here at least…) and beside the fact that you were so proud of your savings, which was gonna lead into an awesome auto-birthday present (#loveyourself right?) you realize that now that is so NOT GONNA HAPPEN…


“Cry not cry.. it’s ok… it’s not ok… ok now I am having a mental breakdown…”

DINNER PARTY: your friends are half sick, anyway they spend with you the sweetest and funniest night ever… they make you smile and support you, IRONY IS CRUEL SOMETIMES BUT IF YOU CAN LEARN TO LAUGH ABOUT IT ‘S ALL GONNA BE OK. The night goes on with delicious food, hilarious story… and you feel how warm is to have amazing people that love you and appreciate you and most important believe in you even when you doubt yourself..


We live everyday just on the surface of things, loosing sight of where really is beauty around us, or what gives sense to everything. Sometimes are so use to hold our breath that we forget how simple and natural is to breathe in and breathe out…You know what I mean?
Well my birthday was not even close to the perfect idea of it, and that’s ok there is no such thing as perfect ( this is said a lot, but often not quite believed…) but I am sure that in years from now i am gonna remember it with a smile, and that is what makes ONE GOOD DAY.

Love J.
