Every year I still get excited for my birthday. When the one-month-mark passes the real countdown begins. And when we get to two weeks prior all bets are off.
For me, birthdays are about doing what you want — having a special day just for yourself. When I was in school I would always stay home on my birthday and do something special. Now that I’m older, I still try to take the day off if I can.
This year there are a few items from J.Crew on my wish list, some new lipstick colors from Topshop, and a David Yurman ring I have had my eye on for a while. There will also be the usual pampering at Spa Adriana.
But today is actually the birthday of my good friend Cathy. I met Cathy when I was working at my last job and we hit it off right away. Even though I left more than two years ago, Cathy and I chat regularly and get together for coffee and brunch when we can. Cathy is so much fun to be around and has an infectious personality. She is a wonderful friend and a special person.
Happy Birthday Cathy! xoxo

I love that C Wonder bag!! 🙂 I’m kind of looking for a new tote for class and work… 🙂
I love that J Crew vest. BTW, have you tried the topshop lipstick? If you have, how do they compare to other brands.?

Thank you! I actually ordered a couple of lipsticks from Topshop, but haven’t tried them yet. I will definitely do a post with my thoughts soon!
