Last week I celebrated my 32nd birthday. Birthdays mean a lot to me and I usually take time to reflect on my life, my goals, and my desires around my birthday. This birthday I felt incredibly grateful, I feel incredibly blessed in too many ways to count, and I thank God everyday for that. I remember a time in my life where I felt pressured to meet certain milestones within a specific period of time. While I have achieved some of those milestones, it’s powerful and sobering to see my life unfold in beautiful ways that I didn’t plan.
To celebrate my birthday, I bonded with a close group of friends over dinner, laughter and great conversation at Vandal, a chic and trendy restaurant in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Next, we went dancing at Negril Village. If you love Caribbean music ( and this Jamaican woman loves her reggae and soca), check out their lounge area on a Saturday night.
I wore a WoW Couture bandage dress that I found in Zalta Boutique, a hidden gem in Flatbush, Brooklyn. They sell a large variety of Bandage dresses if you’re looking.
I was so lucky to have my new favorite Brooklyn Makeup artist, glambypeachhie, do my makeup. She listened to what I wanted and SLAYED the look.
For my 32nd year, I am continuing my year of yes.
*I am saying Yes to blogging more consistently and continuing to build and create the vision that I have for my blogs.
*I am saying Yes to paying attention to my needs and desires more, knowing that my values are very important to me.
*I am saying Yes to continue to be more open to more of life adventures (travel more, push myself out of my comfort zone more, practice my faith more etc.)
