The Birthday Fashion Palate

Kicking off the new year with my birthday is not a bad start to 2012! Having a Birthday so close to the holidays can be kind lame sometimes, but this year I was determined to make it the party of the year! And how do I do that? Have a NYE themed Birthday party of course. And that I did. After all I need an excuse to wear my $8 glittery Zac Posen dress! I had a blast celebrating my birthday week with the people closest to me. And I was suuuuper busy too.

Not only was I baking the day of, but I had my hair done at Halo-A Dry Bar in Palo Alto, Ca.
And then I had my makeup & eyebrow wax professionally done by Pauline at Studio Joule in San Jose,Ca. (Which BTW there will be a fab future giveaway from my favorite spa/makeup haven: Studio Joule!). Pauline did a grayish smokey eye on me with a glitter eyeliner and a Pop of Art Pink lipstick by Kate Spade.

I was baking up a storm. Here's what I made:

Champagne Cupcakes & Confetti Cookies.

I made a little fun set up on my dinning table for my Bday snackies! Gotta have the party poppers.

I found the confetti cookie recipe from Momofuku Milk Bar recipe book. I've never been to their Milk Bar in New York, but after tasting these I can't wait to visit! Crisp yet unbelievably chewy with sprinkles, ugh so good.

 Dinner at Blowfish Sushi at Santana Row. Got this delicious little ice cream platter!

 Celebrating with my friends! Shown here is my hubby Jeff and one of my long time besties.
Notice the awesome glittery mini hats! I kind of bedazzeled mine out and added a few feathers.
