I do know I (in addition to this complete planet) am only a blip within the grander scheme of issues within the universe yada yada yada nevertheless it was my first ever quarantine birthday and I actually wished it down for the data as a result of insta posts are so fucking fleeting. So here’s a fast replace on what I did for my birthday being below lockdown (not alone, fortunately, I had Aman to make me all of the fabulous cocktails) and ofcourse pics from the day too.
I had baked myself a wholesome, vegan, grain free, processed sugar-free cake the day earlier than as a result of I had 6 bananas that had been starting to get too ripe to be eaten as is and even utilized in my almost-daily smoothie consumption so this was one of the simplest ways to utilize them I suppose. I normally make muffins out of those so I adopted the identical recipe for the muffins however put it multi function baking tray. My suggestion – don’t do this. As a result of my cake turned out to be very dense and moist (most likely due to the 6 bananas as an alternative of the four I might’ve usually used for the recipe). Fortunately I like moist muffins bordering on pies and this really tasted improbable, particularly with the wealthy espresso glaze I placed on high of it (it was principally dalgona espresso or as Indians name it ‘phenti’ hui espresso traslating into crushed espresso)
Great products that you can use in your life.
I made certain I took a bathe a day earlier than too – incase I used to be feeling too right down to get away from bed or take a bathe on my precise birthday (I’ve at all times had a love-hate relationship with my birthday, largely as a result of I’m most likely fearful of getting previous however nonetheless prefer to have a superb time). SO I used to be up and prepared for the day after I bought away from bed on my birthday and fortunately not feeling down (I reserved these emotions for the subsequent day and boy did they make an entrance – I spent your complete subsequent day in mattress – partly as a result of I used to be hungover and partly as a result of, effectively, I used to be a yr older).
I made certain I dressed up a bit so I wore this further neon pair of skorts (shorts that appear as if a skirt), a plain white tee as a result of I really like these and a pair of further assertion necklaces, one with a neon trace to match my skirt – sure I went there. Did some cool make-up, placed on darkish purple lipstick coz I felt that was the state of my coronary heart that day and began consuming at 12pm I feel. We began with martinis, then went on to pina coladas, threw in a couple of beers within the combine and ended the evening with some bomb-ass LIITS. Someplace within the center I ofcourse lower the cake, Aman sang a shy little completely satisfied birthday for me (nonetheless admire it), I did a ‘houseparty’ (the app) with some shut buddies, bought completely smashed, solid the dialog on the TV display in order that it felt extra like actual life, had a midnight maggi and handed out by 1 or 2am.
All in all a reasonably good day I’d say. Missed doing what I normally do – that’s just about the identical factor however with my household.
Slept like a child and awoke with a monstrous hangover that, mixed with the hate a part of my relationship of my birthday, stored me excruciatingly depressing the subsequent day. However that handed and I used to be again to actual life the day after that.
Hope you guys had fun studying about my day. I’m nonetheless questioning what sort of stuff I can share on the weblog coz actually being in lockdown isn’t very motivating me sufficient to create new weblog posts though I normally love doing that. Did you want studying this sort of stuff? Would you prefer to learn extra stuff like this? Let me know as a result of I’m frankly fairly misplaced.
Keep robust hugs from me.
