it's the small things

so today- after checking my PO box every single day- i received the package i knew was on its way from my mom, sister and cousin in honor of the 25th birthday i celebrated last week. it was like christmas morning when i got home to rip it open! for the most part i knew what the contents would be, but my sister, Mirelle, and my cousin (well..more like my other sister) Lindsay, went shopping for me. they are two of my all time favorite shopping partners because they don't mind waiting in line to try tons of clothes on, they are honest about what looks good and what doesn't and they deal with my indeciciveness. so Mirelle told me they went to the mall and put themselves in "Miyan mode" and picked out a few suprises. I was beyond ecstatic with that they chose!!! they hit up some of my favorite stores, Forever 21, Charlotte Russe and Victoria's Secret and this is what i got:





My "little" brother, Ben, has begun his college adventure at Texas A&M this fall and we are oh so proud, hence the cute Victoria's Secret tee.
Then there is this beautiful, sheer, sleeveless champagne colored top that I can already imagine pairing with my new black jeans that I got yesterday from Mango :)


My next suprise is this one sleeved top that I probably wouldn't have even picked out for myself, but I tried it on and it's beautiful on! It's flowy and bright and fun.


Mirelle & Lindsay picked out some gorgeous earrings and golden cuff.


They sent and wrote sweet happy birthday wishes in this cute weinie dog birthday card. And of course they sent me necessities: October issue of Cosmo, Bare Minerals makeup that I was running out of, Burts Bees chapstick (Im addicted!!!), mascara, razor blades- because makeup and razor blades are super expensive in Israel. Oh and can't forget Jergen's tanning lotion, since it's beach weather no-more, gotta keep that glow...


Thanks you mom, Mirelle and Linds for my birthday presents! It was so nice!!
