Hey guys! Wassup. So today I'm sharing something a little out-of-character for me, I HAD A BERFDAY PARTY. A few of my favorites (missing a few!) and I gathered for a birthday-turned-galentine's ish party at my friend Allison's (who y'all may know from Parlor or @Blondentrepreneurs) house mostly to celebrate my cake, which was from the amazing Milk Bar dessert haven in NYC (and LA and other neat cities) and drink rosé. Y'all not only was this cake gorgeous but it was (a good prop) and DELICIOUS. They also have the cutest little mini version for two you can order for Valentines! One of my other faves Jamie Meares of Furbish + I Suwanee fame gave the assist on styling the tablescape. Isn't it gorge? Something fun that we discussed over the course of conversation was that the placemats were Furbish from a minute ago but she styled them with new goodies which gave them new life and sparked new joy. (Speaking of placemats, these are the most.) It made me go check out what I haven't used in a while to think of new ways to style them. Anyway, another item of note, Allison is the consummate hostess and a tremendous cook so we stayed out of her way with the food - and I'm glad we did, she did this gorgeous salmon in her Instant Pot!!! If you don't know Instant Pot I suggest you hit the Googles, it's like a tiny hybrid Crockpot but it does things (safely), in like, lightning speed. It's wild. 10/10. Rounding things out were my fave rosés - Jacqueline Leonne (the BEST) and duh Yes Way Rosé. We all did fun nails over at PAINTBASE to pre-game and I feel like everyone was wonderfully on theme. I also love the cute Self Portrait mini dress I was shuffling around in - which is also PERFECT for Valentine's Day should you be celebrating it. The zipper detail and ruching make it super flattering. I'm adding a gallery of some other Valentine-inspired goodies below for your perusal. In summary, we had the best time. I so enjoyed spending some focused time with my friends talking life, being silly, throwing confetti at each other and taking a million pictures because hashtag content.

  3. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers? Stretch Film Manufacturer

  4. Happy birthday! I feel birthdays are always worth memorizing when something changed is done on that superior day. So absolutely, that is one exclusive way that we celebrate my birthday. Facebook advertising agency
