#Personal – Birthday Celebrations!

Birthday dessert gefeliciteerd

A bit over a week ago I turned 21 years old, that of course had to be celebrated. My parents took me and my boyfriend Chris out to my all-time favorite restaurant in The Netherlands: Pure Passie in ‘s-Gravenzande. Gefeliciteerd means happy birthday in Dutch by the way.The past week it was also time to take my little kitten Gurt to the vet to get his shots. Take a look at my week in pictures and watch out that you don’t drool on your computer!

Birthday Make Up
My birthday make up for the evening

restaurant pure passie
A little amuse on the house made out of a celery mouse, hazelnut crumbles and a radish. Pure Passie uses local products for almost all of their dishes. I wrote more about this restaurant here, and for my Dutch readers: the owner writes a blog too on which he gives you a behind the scenes look into the restaurant. If you go to his blog leave a comment that The Beauty Suitcase send you there!

main course pure passie
Mackerel with all sorts of veggies – the waiters explained it a lot better – for starters.

Stoofpeertjes pure passie restaurant
Veal with stoofpeertjes – a Dutch side dish: Wilder Gieseman pears stewed in wine, water, cinnamon and sugar – as our main course.

Amuse pure passie
Another amuse on the house before dessert, made with a lot of delicious things of which I can’t remember the names!

Pure passie dessert
My favorite part of going out to dinner: dessert.

I was secretly hoping for this dessert, but unfortunately it was only included on the a-la-carte menu – we had the three course surprise menu- as it takes to much time to prepare. Picture taken from the Twitter of Pure Passie’s chef and owner.

kitten to the vet
Later that week little Gurt had to be taken to the vet. Poor thing had no idea what was about to happen and happily crawled in the travel basket I prepared for him.

cute tabby kitten
Happy to be home again! Poor thing started hyper ventilating in the car and the vet said that he even had sweaty paws…

Kittens sleeping together
“The best thing about being back home? Sleeping with my adopted mom. I copy her every move!”

Chris got me marzipan for my birthday, because my real birthday present hadn’t arrived yet.

Marc Jacobs Honey parfume
A few days after my birthday he whatsapped me this picture of my real birthday present: Marc Jacobs perfume! It smells so good, I’m debating if I should or shouldn’t post a review since it’s more of a summer scent….

Peppa Pig Advent Calender
I love watching the SacconeJolys on youtube. They love Peppa Pig and got me hooked to, so I got this Peppa Pig advent calendar. #kidatheart

Have a good week!

    The food looks really healthy and so refined! Fun that it looks like it’s from the garden (radish in a pot and wood mushrooms). Poor Gurt, he’s just a small thing.

    • Well your comment did go into the spam box… One link to your blog is ok with me, but I think with four you kinda over did it. I’ll remove the other links. Thank you for your comment.
