Hey, all 🙂 This post isn’t going to be about anything but me, me, and me. It’s more of a photo post than a writing post. The reason I’m sharing my 23rd birthday pictures is because this is MY blog so why noy give you a little glimpse into MY life. It’s a just a little break from reviews, how-to’s, trends, news, etc. It’s basically like when beauty gurus do vlogs instead of tutorials. Anyway, this birthday was the first one is 5 years that I’ve spent home aka NYC. From ages 18-22, I was either in Albany, Buffalo, or Miami. So, it was refreshing to spend this one with my family within arms reach.
Also, I wanted this birthday to be more low-key than my others. My last 4 birthdays consisted of clubbing and house parties. This birthday for me was a “coming of age” event, as I like to call it. Only because I didn’t want a crazy celebration. I had absolutely 0 interest getting turnt up. I actually would’ve been fine with wine and the spa hahaha. My preference actually would’ve been to travel, but that wasn’t in the cards this year. So, I opted for a dinner with my parents and my best friend. It was only right since I haven’t spent a birthday with my parents in years.
Anyway, here a few pictures of my night and just for fun, I’ll add a list of products I used for my birthday makeup just to add some beauty in here!
