When we left off, I was counting down my memorable moments of the year 2013, first half. In this episode of Bina’s Closet, we look at the second half, where posting was .. few and far between.
In July of this year, we moved house! I’m not a big fan of moving, and I really miss my little flat in PSC, but our home here is far bigger, and we managed to have a few good get-togethers! The number of outfit photos from this time is almost nil. So my favourite is .. the only one! This was just before I cut off all my hair!
August marked my thirtieth birthweek. I had a great time – two parties, and a week of little surprises from my lad. He did me a little cupcake treasure hunt, and had cute cards each morning to make sure the Birthweek went well. My birthweekend was super as well – dins at Machiavelli on the Friday, and an awesome do at our place on the Saturday.
Kaiju shirt! If you haven’t seen Pacific Rim, you TOTALLY should.
In September, for my thirtieth birthtrip, we went to NYC! It was amazing! I’d never been before. I got to see Times Square, and a taping of The Chew! I also had the most amazing amazing meal at Perilla. We also ate at Kin Shop, The Smith, Marea, and two rando-restos that were totally disappointing – but I never got glutened the whole time. The tasting menu at Perilla is a meal I’m certain I will remember for the rest of my life, it was amazing.
We were instructed to wear bright colours, so I paired a top my sister got for my birthday with a bright blue blazer. It was pretty okay.
In September we went out to Au Diable Vert to trek around their trails. I’m not big into nature, but this place was beautiful, and we had a wonderful day. I’ll devote a post to it, later!
October! I have no outfit photos for October. I do, however, have the instagram I snapped after The Run for the Cure: http://instagram.com/p/fIWbVhM0F2/
I love my kitties
December was a brilliant month, full of holiday cheer! Our company Christmas parties were great. My best days this month were pretty food-centric! On the 21st, we celebrated with Jules’ family, ate boar and an amazing balsamic pickled onion side that was just super. Christmas Eve, I came home from work to tartare, oysters, and foie gras, and on the 28th, my mom and grandmother, et. al. came round, and I cooked up a Korean-inspired feast!
New Years’ Eve, we hit a party filled with Cards Against, Jungle Speed (!! fantastic game), and the Werewolf game whose name I don’t know. It was a great time.
Here’s hoping 2014 is just like 2013, only better.
