Things I Love: Birthday Eves

June 13th is my favorite day of the world to celebrate -- the day BEFORE my birthday. As I child I used to cry (BAWL) on my birthday eve because I would NEVER be THAT age again. Really? What a crazy kid I was, most kids probably couldn't sleep because of the excitement - NOT ME.
Today is particularly special to me because not only is the last day I will ever be 29 it is also the last day I will ever be a Twenty Year Old.
And man, was that one heck of a defining decade for me.
Doesn't even feel like that was me that did all that.
I've never felt more like ME, the Teenage Party-Animal, Rebel Without a Cause, w/a side of Nerdy, Introverted, Brainiac in there.
This last week of my twenties has been one of the best weeks of my life FOR SURE.
I'm beginning to realize that dreams often come true.
Like when my childhood dreams of meeting Simon Rex  came true?
...and yes I will be wearing that shirt again tomorrow in honor of Flag Day.

Or how about when my dream of going to a Fashion Show complete with Red Carpet and a Celeb appearance came true?
That happened.
And so did my dream of meeting a Fashion Designer.
Two in one day none the less for my first time, lucky to say it wasn't my last Fashion Designer encounter.

Oh and how about my life-long dream of living in LA?
Living that dream.
I have LOTS & LOTS of dreams I'm hoping to accomplish in this fourth decade of mine: brand Ambassador/Representative/Promoter, Stylist, Author, Fashion Designer/Collaborator are just some of the goals on my to-do list.
And that's just my start.
I want to Martha Stewart & Oprah this place up.
Maybe Paris Hilton it UP a bit too...
Lauren Conrad is definitely a roll model for me right now.
Oh and a BOYFRIEND might be nice as well, but that's just a cherry on top of this life I am living & loving SO MUCH.
And I *THINK* I have an idea of what I'll be wishing for when I blow out those 29 candles tonight...
I mean like Walt Disney taught us, when you wish upon a star, there's a whole new world, and that's where I'll be.
THIRTIES: I can't wait to enjoy the heck outta you!!
Thank you for all your love and support, y'all are amazing.
This blog & my online presence have been therapy for me, so thank you for listening.
Oh did I mention that I attended the MTV Movie Awards?!!
UMM I just about died!!!
It was literally a dream sequence for me.  I mean I went from throwing MTV award show parties to attending!!
Now that shit CRAY.

oh and Tacori sent my the fanciest earrings I've ever owned AND dubbed my style "Edgy Chic".
I cannot stop pinching my self and thanking my lucky stars, I am SO blessed and I only wish for everyone to feel this way.

Wishing you lots of dreams, smiles and blessings in your life.
YOU are only one that can control your happiness and where your life takes you.
FIGHT for the the best life you can make yourself - it's worth it.
I mean a year ago if anyone told me I'd be divorced, living in LA and attending award shows, I NEVER would have believed them.
BUT I would have wanted too!!
