Happy B I R T H D A Y to M E ♥
It’s official…I am 26 today + although I am another year older I am still a kid at ♥ so I am celebrating my birthday at the most magical place on earth – DISNEY! Spending my birthday with my partner in crime AND Mickey + Minnie, could life get any better? I think not hehe 😉 People have always said your mid-twenties into your thirties are your best years because you begin to feel comfortable with the skin you are in, you stop taking shit from people + you learn more about yourself each + everyday. Well I always learn new things everyday + every year I feel a bit wiser but this year…I truly found happiness + what my aspirations, goals + dreams are in life.
This year was a big one for me.
I found my best friend + partner in crime, we went through being long distance while he was away in London, I actually traveled outside the country to visit him, we went to Paris – one of my dreams, I bought my first Chanel (in Paris) + my first Mercedes, I landed my dream job doing what I love working from home, connecting brands with perfectly paired influencers AND I am now celebrating my birthday and anniversary in Orlando having the time of my life. I must say…this year, life has been pretty damn good.
So what have I learned from becoming another year older (and hopefully another year wiser) :p Well, I have a few things..
One: Never take shit from anyone…seriously. Whether it is your family, friends, boss etc. Stand strong, stand up for what you believe in + stand up for your morals + what you feel is right. As you get older, you don’t just sit + take it, you strive for more, you stand up + want to be heard + respected, you want to be YOU.
TWO: Take care of yourself, put yourself first. This means whether it comes to your health, happiness or anything else, you must put what is best for you above whatever else is happening in life. I used to over extend myself + never say
NO to any project or event etc. Now I learned that me being worn out + exhausted isn’t doing anyone any good, so I make sure to balance + take time for me.
Three: Never take life too seriously. I used to be a notorious worry wart. I had anxiety over absolutely everything + it stopped me from feeling 100% confident with who I was + what I was doing. What changed this? As corny as it sounds…my relationship. I used to think what people thought of me + my relationships were more important than what my thoughts or feelings were. Fast forward a year later I traded in fancy dinners for Wednesday half price games at Dave & Buster’s + would rather spend my weekends relaxing watch South Park than being out + about every second of the day. It’s funny how once you get older you learn more about yourself + what truly makes you happy…this year, that was my number ONE lesson in life. Sometimes what you think will make you happen doesn’t + instead life surprises you with plans that make you wonder what you were missing out on in life before!
Now for the fun part! My birthday look!
I fully jumped on the body suit bandwagon because they help suck everything in + look great when paired with my favorite skater skirts. For this look I picked a white lace body suit (also perfect for Valentine’s Day) + paired it with a white skater skirt.
I had to add some birthday flare to this look with these bedazzled platform heels from Betsey Johnson (because every gal should sparkle on her birthday)!
My birthday wish is to connect + get to know all of you who follow my adventures!
