Happy September

Remember this? The pretty necklace on my birthday wishlist...well guess what? I GOT IT IN THE POST!!

Penelope of  Hey Lovely and Our Tea Party was kind enough to send it to me. Do you realize how happy I am?
VERY VERY HAPPY!

 

Now, two very enchanting giveaways: Lizzie's and Nikki's! Lovely names, ladies! Oh and your wishcake! Lots and lots of lovely giveaways x

Postsecret.

This is one of my favorite poems of all time :) Are you strong enough? 
Do you know why the willow weeps?

 
I know the images have nothing to do with my post, but the photos are just too pretty!!
Yesterday, Sarah from Yes and Yes, posted this very thought-provoking post, well at least to me it was. But it is true, there must be this one person that has changed your life forever. Or a few. A person who has, be it intentionally or unintentionally, made you change your path. Take a turn you never thought you would, and your life changed. Just like that. I tried to think who that person is/was...but I think it will take me more than just one night of thinking. Who changed your life? and how? comment or even blog about it please!

 
Is it REALLY September already? Autumn? WOW! We don't really get autumns in Cairo, it's usually warm and then suddenly it's winter...yes, we don't have defined seasons, if that makes sense!

Yesterday was my S babe's surprise birthday party! We had iftar on a yacht, cruising the Nile. And it was beautiful! Because she is a great person and deserves all the best! Sara and I have known each other for..*counts on fingers* eight years now! She is a very talented person as well! Happy birthday, S! August babies are the best! x

I hope you are all having a lovely Tuesday x

Hello my dear, I'm glad you got the gift. A belated birthday present perhaps? Or just because you're amazing?

Hi Sara how lovely to get a present through the post. Every year my family in Brazil send me something for my birthday and it's always a nice surprise.
End of summer has been beautiful in the UK, and autumn is a lovely season to enjoy too.
