Happy Birthday to Me!

Delicious cupcakes my mother got me 

A few weekends ago I celebrated my 16th birthday with my friends and family. It was so fun and all I could ask for. The weekend was me in a nutshell, casual and comfortable but still fun! Saturday night was a blast. I thought I was going out tod dinner with my aunt and uncle but actually my aunt had contacted girls from my old school and surprised me with a little birthday sushi dinner! 

My Best friend Ally and I.

  I had never really had a surprise birthday gathering before so it was really fun! Thank god my mom told me the dress code was fun casual. I hate being surprised because then I don't know how to dress! Dinner was delicious, I had spicy tuna rolls, california rolls and some special roll with cooked fish in it.   

Later we went back to my aunts house who surprised us with take out Pinkberry! She really is the best! 

   On the night of my actual birthday I spent a peaceful night at home with my siblings, parents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. I come from a huge family and I havent spent a birthday away from them in years. 

My big present

My parents outdid themselves this year. In my family on your 16th you usually get a piece of jewelry. My parents gave me the most beautiful Hermes bangle! I have the best family in the world and I am so blessed. I am so grateful for not only my parents generosity but for the love they gave me on my 16th birthday.   


Wash Leather Rinse Repeat

       Leather has quite the rep if you ask me! When people think of leather apparel, they mostly think of Steven Tyler and the 90's. This image for you could either be good or bad, I happen to be quite fond of it. This season I am truly obsessed with leather. Jumping outside ones comfort zone and wearing leather garb can be quite a risk. The best way to integrate leather into your wardrobe is to slowly take small risks with subtle items. No one says you have to go to work tomorrow in your Britney red patten leather jumpsuit. Although I'm not gonna lie, that costume may or may not be my favorite Britney music video ensemble. There is a Kate Middleton way to go about wearing leather, not everything has to be extremely offensive Taylor Momsen. I am so excited to get out my leather pieces for this fall. Did I mention I'm wearing my free people leather skirt this weekend? Comment on how you like to rock leather.
