Friday DIY Roundup

Happy Friday!

Yesterday was my birthday. I had scheduled a post filled with cakes recipes but for some reason it didn't publish- oops! Prepare to salivate next week.

I debated how I should spend my birthday, and decided I wanted to do something for myself, and something for someone else. I went to a hair salon (the salon uses Hairborist products, which I highly recommend. They're organic, gentle, not tested on animals, and leave your hair silky smooth) and finally had the subtle ombré I've been wanting for ages. I had a sicilian lunch with my partner, then we drove to the local animal shelter and walked dogs. It was a beautiful, sunny day. The dogs looked so happy, and so did I.

I'll be celebrating with friends and family over the weekend, the low-key way, with crudités, a big cake, a beach fire, a piñata and some dancing to an old record player that belonged to my great-aunt.

What about you? Fun plans for the weekend? Do tell! I wish you a beautiful, sun-filled weekend.
