#24th Birthday // Festivities & Outfit

Hello Loves!

I hope you all are having a fabulous summer so far!

My #24th birthday was on July 27th and I couldn’t have spent it anymore perfect. It was a food-stuffed, instagrammable, low-key day. I enjoyed every moment of it and as a gift from me to you, I will be sharing all of my birthday festivities and a glimpse of my outfit!


10:00AM – #Brunch

I started off the day with a delicious brunch from one of my favorite local cafés – Lola’s Café and oh boy! was the food DELICIOUS! Not only was every inch of my body super happy, but the presentation was out of this world. I loved how they had such a wide range of brunch food, from avocado toast to eggs and pancakes. *Nom, nom nom*

11:00AM – Balloon Surprise?!

I have always wanted the typical birthday balloon photoshoot and what do you know, my boyfriend surprised me with these super cute pink/white balloons just so I could live out my photoshoot dreams! #heisakeeper

The balloons went so well with my birthday look and I was literally the happiest girl that day! #boyfriendgoals

12:00PM – Birthday Freebies!

I mean you can’t spend your birthday and not snatch those birthday freebies from Sephora and Ulta, am I right? I am obsessed with everything I received this year, from the gorgeous warm toned eye shadow palette from Ulta to the mini Tarte products from Sephora. These are so great for traveling and every day carrying purposes! P.S. I’m such a big fan of NYX and Tarte makeup products! #happygirl

1:00-5:00PM – Birthday Photoshoot & Smoothie Break

If you know me personally, you know how much I love photography and capturing special moments with my camera. I dedicated a great amount of my birthday time capturing cute photos that I could share with family, friends, and my readers on how I decorated my bedroom and what I wore that day. Ya know, just your typical fashion/lifestyle blogger doing her thing!

For my birthday look, I decided to stay true to my personal style, which is girly chic. I wanted colors that were cute, girly, and playful. Since I am such a princess at heart, I decided to go with a modern day princess look. A blog post on this look will be up later this week! Prepare to put your princess hat on and sparkle!

8:00PM – Birthday Dinner

There is nothing more special than having a fancy smancy birthday dinner with your significant other. We went to Cento, and now it’s a restaurant favorite. The food was phenomenal as well as the interior design! The restaurant was definitely a 10/10 for food, service, and presentation! Also the staff was so kind to bring out a special birthday dessert with a mini candle to make sure that this #birthdaygirl had the chance to make a wish. #bestnightever

9:00PM – Birthday Gifts

Like any birthday, I ended the night with opening birthday gifts from love ones! My boyfriend first surprised me with balloons, which I mention earlier in this blog, then he got us matching Adidas shoes! I’m such a bougie, basic gal that matching couple shoes were so exciting for me. I love the photo we took together!

I then spoiled myself with a Louis Vuitton bag! I feel that we all work so hard each and every day that a well spent gift for yourself on your birthday is much needed and well deserved 🙂 And of course, these bow flats were needed in my life so I thought I would splurge on some new classy shoes as well.

Finally, my sister gifted me a super cute home décor present. I am such a huge interior design fanatic and I’ve been in the process of decorating my bedroom that this “Hello Gorgeous” matches my aesthetic very well. I love how it represents my personality and style!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! It was a day to remember and I’m so grateful for everything and everyone I have in my life <3

Lots of Love,
