Hello my beautiful fashion lovers!
Birthday celebration 2016 was an awesome one.  Quiet day filled with a memorable evening.  

Breakfast with my kiddos and husband was a delight.  Relaxed afternoon, prepping for an evening with my better half (well that's what I thought).  I was told to be dressed fancy and location was a secret.  Driving that evening down dark alleys and pothole roads with low gas (my husbands excuse for killimg time, oh I should've  known) only leading to an impeccable sight of the NYC scape.  Entering the venue was a real treat with Christmas decor flooding the lobby.  The elevator ride to the top of the building was an ear popping adventure.  Entering the diamond detail room took my breath away.  As the hostess led us to our seats, all I heard was screaming and lights flashing.  Almost thought Kim Kardashian came through the doors.  Only to find the few ladies closest to me, sitting in anticipation of my arrival.  I cried and laughed and was just shocked and overjoyed by the love; just thinking how they all went out of their way to celebrate with me.  They really thought I was aware of it, but I had no clue thanks to my hubby.  I spoke with each one of them earlier that day.  All of their schedules filled.  Little sissy and an interview that morning, one cousin had a root canal the other worked all day and even worked on my hair that day!  It was too good to be true.  I must say it was one of the best day of my life.  Thank you guys for being there and making me feel loved.  I love each and everyone of you and will never forget the evening you all planned for me.  

I had an outfit sitting in my closet for months waiting to be worn for my special day.  However, I didn't see it fit for a celebration (there was no sparkle).  So I decided to go with this shining goodness.  I kind of over did it with my signature pose, but who cares?

Heartfelt gratitude and love to those who wished me a happy birthday via social media, text and calls.  I was blessed by each one.

Be confident, be inspired and shine one...
