Gifts from Thailand

My little sister was on a two week trip to Thailand some time ago, 
and here's some really lovely things I got as a souvenir.  
Silk shawl and canvas bag with sequin elephants, so cute :) 
We also got a bag of honey roasted peanuts  
- super yummy - 
we've eaten almost all of them !  google if you want to see those heehe!

Today is my birthday
and my sister rang me this morning singing
 the "Happy Birthday" -song. It was really lovely. thank you.
 Then I went for a cup of coffee and delicious mango cheesecake with my Mum.
She insisted on buying me something from cosmetics department,
and I chose Maybelline's cute pink Color Sensational lipstick.
The shade is 132 Sweet Pink, here's couple pics from 

EDIT: One reader asked whether it's matte or glittery, and it does have a nice shine !
I will post picture of it on my lips soon.

I'm not doing anything special today to celebrate, I'll just enjoy this free time and and eat some candies.

OH and I'm almost finished with this book I'm reading, Wicked Lovely [Ilki ihana] by Melissa Marr.
 I can tell that it's so great ! I wanted to tell you something about it, but I don't want to spoil,
so just get your hands on it if you can, and even love reading. There's even a movie [coming up?]

 I should do many things more often (sew, walk around out in the nature, clean my house :D)
and reading is among them.. But I've been catching up a lot,
 for instance I read Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys [Hämähäkkijumala]
and Bridget Jones's diary just some time ago.  
Do you enjoy reading books ?

Have a nice Tuesday!
I'm catching up with your blogs & answering to all comments little by little.

    lovely new goodies btw. and I think it's awesome that you have enough time to read so much. I wish I had too.. I really wish but oh well, my work simply doesn't leave me that much free time and I'm too tired after my workdays anyway. I hope I can read through at least one book in the plane while flying to Prague :P
