Brooklyn Bridge Birthday

 photo IMG_8773683x1024_zps0ec9e96b.jpg
29 years ago today I was born. I'm so glad I was...these last 29 years have been pretty fun. I like life a lot. I mean yeah...i've been laid off a job, had my heart broken more than once, and my computer has crashed 4 times but life it still pretty damn good. I feel like I've accomplished a lot so far and can't wait to rock the hell out of this last year of my 20's. It seems the older I get the younger people assume I am. I can't tell you how many young...and I mean young guys hit on me everyday thinking im in my early 20's. I hope these Benjamin Button genes last forever. lol.

I had to do something great for my birthday so i finally did the Brooklyn Bridge + Balloons shoot I've always wanted to do. It was so fun and really breathtaking to watch the sun rise over New York City. It was the most magical morning and I was pretty amusing to the early bikers. I have a deep fear of bridges and this was a little terrifying for me but I wanted to do it and so glad I did!

Dress: ASOS | Shoes: Alexander Wang Aminata
I got this great waffle knit dress from ASOS a few months ago with the sole intention of wearing it for my birthday. I paired it with the early birthday present to myself, these Alexander Wang Aminata sandals. I am going to treat myself to some of my favorite things today which include Tonnie's Minis Carrot Cake Cupcakes and a mani-pedi and some champagne!
cheers to another year older and hopefully a bit wiser!
