Goodbye 23!

Here we are again! My annual birthday post (just two days belated…). Instead of looking back at the end of the calendar year at all that happened, I choose to do so on my birthday and reflect on my past year of life. So take a look at some memories from this year that have a special place in my heart for one reason or another…

The year of 23 is really the year that I started blogging and I am still shocked at how many of you read my blog posts every single day. I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus but I want to keep the year of 24 going just as strong! On youtube too!

Lil mama got her tonsils out about two months after we got married and….I just…have never in my life experienced pain like this. My doctor literally said that childbirth will be easier for me because of the intensity of pain that I went through during recovery.

I worked for Kylie Jenner Cosmetics for awhile and got to wear very trendy clothes every day. But we weren’t allowed to even have our phones in the building so pre-work outfit pics are all I can share lol

I still don’t know what to call this costume…70’s disco chic??? Either way, it took me like two hours to curl my hair like that so….

After 5 years of living in California, I feel like I finally explored LA a lot more this past year. This was at The Grove during Christmas time.
