It’s my 30th birthday today! Yup, it’s a big one. A special one. What makes it even more special is that I’m currently 35 weeks pregnant, so I’m got even more to celebrate now! In a matter of a couple of weeks, I’ll be a mom! A mom to a baby boy who has lived in my belly for what seems like forever. The best part of all is that I get to share this marvelous experience and love with my best friend. Nothing beats that.
I may be saying au revoir to my 20’s but I’m more than excited to take on this next chapter in my life. I’m going to have my own little family. What a dream come true.
Oh life and it’s crazy shitty curve balls. Just when I made a point to be more active, my husband suddenly needs to have surgery to get his appendix out. I’ve heard plenty of horror stories when it comes to appendectomies but luckily everything turned out great. Our lives were turned upside down for awhile but I’m grateful that he’s back to his old self again.
I had shot this look weeks ago before the craziness and now is when I finally get to post it. I’ve suddenly turned into this crazy Gucci hoarder but in all reality, these splurges were mostly gifts from my sweet husband. We like to spoil each other from time to time. What can I say. However, I did treat myself to these killer Gucci cat eye sunglasses, which are obviously my favorite style. I had been wanting them for quite so time now and my birthday was right around the corner so hell, why not?! For whatever reason, I can always justify a pair of designer sunglasses, with the price tag and all. There’s just my thing, you know? Shrug.
The anticipatedVeuve Clicquot Carnaval came and went so quickly. The event took place a couple of weeks ago and per usual, it was pretty amazing. I mean, who says no to endless champagne and rosé. Mix that with great music and your favorite people and you’ve really got the best combo ever. I shot some footage of the event here in Miami and put together a short video. You may or may not see a dance sesh in action. 🙂 Ejoy!
As you can tell, my impatience cause me to once again cut my hair. This time, way shorter than I wanted but luckily now I find myself obsessed with it. Short hair has become part of my identity and I really can’t imagine myself with long hair anymore. So bizarre, I know.
I purchased this little NICHOLAS number during ShopBop’s sale and I definitely came out winning. I’ve been wanting a burnt orange dress for awhile now, something fun and a bit out of my comfort zone (I do not own a single orange tone item!). This dress is IT. It’s long and flowy, has cut outs in the right places and the best touch is the neck tie with a bow detail in the back. My absolute favorite.
Basically, the perfect spring/summer dress to make you feel all kinds of pretty. Who doesn’t need that in their closet?
I never thought I’d be much of a sneaker girl but here I am, asking for sneakers for my birthday. Hah! What can I say? They’re comfortable and some of them are so cute, I just can’t resist. Puma has been my favorite so far, hands down. I’m sure the Rihanna Fenty collaboration kick started my love for Puma gear. No surprise there. Speaking of, who’s excited for the new release? I’ve already added March 9th to my google calendar. I desperately need to those pink slides and sneakers. Just too damn good.
I’m currently anticipating a few things. Veuve Clicquot’s Carnaval on Saturday (March 4th), which is going to loads of fun and flowing with champagne. Can’t be mad at any of that.
My 29th birthday is also around the corner, kind of excited about it. I usually get birthday blues but so far so good. Keeping things very low key, going to enjoy dinner with my favorite people. Very much looking forward to it.
I’ve been gone for a hot minute, yeah that’s an understatament. But you know, life happens. SHRUGS.
I’m currently contemplating what to write, all while swaying to some Foster The People and balancing a very sleepy pug on my lap. I guess I can’t complain. Life is pretty sweet. It’s been almost 4 months since I married my beau of 9 years. SWOON. I’ll get into all that in a separate post, where I’ll gush over my wedding and what a dream it was. Heavy heavy sigh.
In the meantime, I leave you with this total 90’s esque look. Black high-waisted pants with a silky top showing a little midriff. A dash of pink romance and some glittery gold, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
P.S I truly wanted to start this post with “I’ve been gone for a minute, now I’m back with the jump off”, but I don’t think you guys are ready for that..
P.S #2 If you sang the song in your head, without looking it up.. well I ADORE you. ♡
