Happy (Belated) Birthday to Lil J - aka Brigadeirozinha

It is mindblowing how time flies...

Twelve months ago (and two weeks - I am very late in posting this) Lil J arrived in this world, turning it upside down (in a good yet crazy way).

These Melissa by Vivienne Westwood shoes are a present from my sister, aren't they too gorgeous for words?

Of course I made brigadeiros...and beijinhos de côco (the coconut/white ones)

It was a cupcake and tea party theme

So I made cupcakes, of course!

My sister painted this as a birthday present (in addition to those cute shoes) for Lil J
A M A Z I N G!

When I saw this skirt almost a year ago, it was too cute to resist, I kept it all this time waiting for her to fit into it, she wore it to her birthday party...

My aunt made the giant cupcake at the top - isn't it precious?
The white cake is my wedding cake - yes, I kept what wasn't eaten in my freezer (although being fruitcake I could have kept it outdoors)

And it was over all too soon...


  1. Gorgeous! Our niece's 1st birthday is coming up soon also, but we're at a loss as what to get her!

  2. Time sure flies. She is adorable, Happy BDay Lil j!! Your sister's painting is adorable!

  3. Happy birthday to the little one! She is absolutely precious! And I love her birthday party theme! Looks like she will grow up to be a fashionista like mommy! (And your whole family is super talented!)
