curated collections.

it’s birthday week at sfgirlbybay! yep, victoria and i are both getting a little older and wiser in the next few days, so i thought it only made sense to start celebrating now. i always start early because, i have to admit, i love my birthday! i totally milk the whole, “it’s my special day” thing, and so today i bring you a curated collection filled to the brim with one of the best parts of “my special day” – cake! chocolate cake with pink icing, vanilla cake covered in cherries, sweet little cupcakes, and a bunch of glowing candles (although i’m not going to tell you how many glowing candles). and of course, the best part about this lovely collection – no calories.

yum! that was goooood. ok, i’m off to get a jump start on “my special day” – and victoria, i suggest you do the same. happy birthday lovely lady!  ~ the jealous curator xo

    Happy birthday to the both of you! And my dear Jealous Curator, you’re making me drool all over my keyboard for some scrumptious cakes, and worst of all, it’s 11pm over here. Which means I’ll probably pig out big time at a bakery tomorrow.
    At least it will be worth it – I’m celebrating two kick-ass ladies’ birthdays! :)
    Have a good one girls!

  18. This is a beautiful post on cakes! Happy belated birthday, lovelies!
