It’s my birthday!

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 17 - 2010

I’m 29, but I don’t look a day over 30.

The astute amongst you may have noticed that this isn’t my actual Birthday Cake (I’m sorry Evy… whoever you are).

This is because…

A).  Mr. L is a man

B).  Leila is too stupid to work out how to use a telephone to order me one

C).  I’m not *quite* sad enough to order my own makeup cake (just desecrate other people’s via Google Image search)

Still, as Mr L always says… “Don’t you already have enough makeup?”

.

P.S.  I don’t know about you, but that MAC looks kinda fake to me.

    Is it wrong that I want that cake, just to look at? Even though it isn’t my birthday?

    But fancy calling Leila stupid, naughty Mummy knows she’s a very smart cookie really, just a bit on the young side to be using the phone let alone ordering stuff :)

    A happy birthday to you! Mine was the 15th, and I also didn’t have a very elaborate cake. It was an ice cream cake, though, and that’s good enough for me!

    Haha, I was JUST researching what fake MAC palettes look like, and the minute I saw that cake I thought to myself “hm, that looks like a fake MAC!” …And then I realized that, yes, it WAS a fake MAC, but not the kind of fake I was thinking of. This kind of fake is probably more worth the money than the fakes I was looking at before. Happy birthday to you!
