OOTD: BDAY || 23 Earthstrong

23 years ago…August 18th at 7:04pm…a young G was born into the world.

A young Goddess that is…

And in this lovely season of the Leo, I celebrate my birth and another year dwelling in this beautiful Earthly realm.

I am entirely GRATEFUL.

Grateful to have family & friends that genuinely care about me.

Grateful to be living my life in the city I have always dreamed.

Grateful for vision, creativity, and inspiration.

Grateful for all the love in my life.

I am as passionate & inspired as ever to fulfill my God-given destiny in the Earth, and live my dreams in the process.

And as I turn 2-3

{2+3 = 5}

I thank the Almighty Creator for all the grace upon my life and this year shall be a year of success, freedom, joy, & loving light! I declare it!

THE DAY

Had a lot of birthday fun! Triiin gave me the royal treatment. From delicious breakfast in bed, home spa treatments, an impromptu BDAY photoshoot, a beautiful homemade cake of perfection, plenty of blunts, wine, & tango lessons! Not to mention a delicious gourmet dinner and awesome gifts. I truly felt like a Leo lioness Queen.

My family sent their beautiful birthday wishes such a manner that there was no way that I could not feel the love. They also sent me a b-day package that arrived perfectly on today, but my apartment manager left her office early, so I couldn’t get it 😦 . However I’m still happy about the package and so excited to see whats inside! My mom always sends something right on time that’s just what I want/need. Some intuition on that woman… not to mention our connection 🙂 . (P.S. since first starting this post I have seen whats in the package! &it was right-on-time gifts, as usual 🙂 ). It’s my first birthday that we haven’t been able to see each other and I miss ’em! But I know they were all with me in spirit.

IMAGE , my friend & an amazingly dope artist, also played a part in making my birthday special! Not only did he give me the gift of a beautiful piece of art to hang on my wall, he gave me a beautiful handmade necklace to serve as wearable piece of art as well! He also took Triiin & I for a lovely day of drinks, desserts, and good vibes 🙂

Twenty One : The Birthday Post

As many of you may know, I just made 21 this past weekend. I am still reeling with excitement from all the festivities! ^_^ . On Friday I got my nails and toes done and went to dinner with my family. On Saturday (my actual b-day), I had an early dinner with my family and got to see a couple friends who came from out of town to visit me for the occasion. When I got home my lovely roommate had hung streamers from my door and had a bottle waiting for me. Later that night, my lovely and very awesome friends surprised me with a surprise party for my birthday!!! It was a glow-in-the-dark/blacklight party and it was sooooo much fun!! I also received many gifts with include but are not limited to, bottles of wine and liquor, the Hunger Games DVD, and my very own blacklight!!!!!! The next day my friends and I hung out and went on an excursion to a little place called Dago’s and shared quite the bonding experience. I just want to share my bday experience with you all as only photos can so….here goes!

Birthday Nails !

Hello my lovelies, I know it’s been a minute since the last time I blogged, but I’ve been uber busy (so bear with me). But guess what today is guys???? My birthday!!!! I am making 21 today and I am excited about it!!! I got my nails done and I wanted to share them with you all. I bought the pink color in a hair store for $1.18 and its called Pastel Pink. It looks like more of a “barbie pink” in my opinion, though. The ring finger color is Champagne (fitting for 21, ehh?) and I have a gold glitter with light pink hearts coating the Champagne nail. I chose a mix between a natural and stiletto shape, because I didn’t want my nails too pointy (no witch nails here!). The same pink color is on my toes. I thourougly enjoyed my super deluxe mani/pedi and I personally lovveee how my nails and toes turned out. Pictures are below, tell me what you guys think! 🙂

P.S. : There will be other birthday related post to show you guys my hair and my various birthday looks (there will be a few, SO STAY TUNED!!)

Until Next Time!
