Birthday Style

My birthday was yesterday. The day was pretty relaxing and I was showered with birthday wishes throughout the day so overall the day and my birthday weekend in general was a good one. But honestly, I was not handling the days leading up to my birthday too well! Another year older and not exactly what I pictured my life to be like if you asked me years ago or even if I could describe my dream life to you at the moment. So after a few days spent wallowing last week, I woke up with a renewed sense of purpose over the weekend. I’ve decided to spend this year trying to make things happen. If life doesn’t want to make things easy peasy for me then I’ll just have to make things happen myself.

For my birthday outing on Saturday night with some friends, I decided I wanted to go to a karaoke place. We used to go a lot back in college, years ago, and I thought it would be fun to revisit. This place we went to wasn’t as nice as places we used to go to that offered full menus and bottle service in your private room. This place still offered private rooms — it was pretty bare bones but it was fine for the evening since I really didn’t want to make a big deal out of my birthday. I just wanted to use my birthday as an excuse to get some friends together to hang out. So my friends brought liquor and surprised me with a cake!

Moving on to my birthday style – the night was fairly casual so I decided to just wear jeans, flip flops and a floral tank top with criss-cross cut-out straps.

    1. Thank you! You’re so right! And I feel like we get comfortable and busy in our day to day that it’s only things like birthdays that make us realize we haven’t done what we wanted!
