In years past I've downplayed my birthday. In general, I'd rather celebrate someone else's special day than my own. But the past twelve months have been pretty exciting---definitely worth tooting my horn about! So today I'll be doing a bit of work (the next issue of Rue goes live in a week, after all) but then I'll be getting cakefaced.
As these photos prove, the tradition of the cakeface is one that I hold near and dear to my heart. Whether on my second birthday in 1984, or at a Rue shoot back in December, there's nothing like the feel of frosting on your skin to make you feel alive! So have a lovely Monday, everyone. I'll be back with our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow, when I come down from my sugar high. xo!
