Today is the day, a day of celebration, reflection, and thankfulness. It’s my birthday! I am over the moon excited. Honestly, not for the gifts or the praise but for the air that I breathe. I know a lot of people who did not live to see this milestone and I’m beyond blessed to be able to celebrate life today. I like to spend my birthday mornings with just me and my thoughts. That’s a little harder to do these days as my girls are just as excited to celebrate my birthday as I am. I’m expecting a few songs and dance moves this morning. I try my best to let my birthday be as peaceful and relaxing and do all the celebrating on the weekend. This year I planned a day of shopping and a weekend of dancing. Remember the blog post from this Monday where I discussed goal setting and removing goals from the list. That is my plan this weekend and I can’t wait to share with you what the big plans are. They are quite “colorful”.
I wanted to do something a little different as it relates to birthday pictures this year. As you know by now I deemed this week Chimere’s week. Yes, I celebrated all week. Why not? Any who, I wanted to do grown and sexy for this years pictures but still keep it classy and for me that always means black. No matter how hard I try I can’t stray too far away from the color black. I love this dress because it hugs your curves just right and the train is gorgeous. It was a tad bit hard to walk upstairs with it but after you master the extra fabric you will love it. I haven’t worn a red lip in so long I decided to wear a throwback favorite, Mac’s Ruby Woo. Any avid makeup lover has this in their collection. I actually have three. Don’t judge me lol. I kept this look simple and paired it with my favorite patent leather pumps and a bracelet. I actually lift my ring at home but hey, I think I still pulled it off. I will be sure to enjoy this day and spend it with the people I love, let’s celebrate!
