My Favorite Day of the Year

Why is today my favorite day of the year? Because, it's my birthday! I feel like I've been celebrating my birthday all month (that's the way to do it, right?!). I've been such a lucky girl I almost feel guilty celebrating this weekend, almost. Looking back I remember wishing for the weirdest things on my birthday. I've always been fond of the rain and I use to ask for it on my big day (I'm definitely having a wet day this year!).

Here are a few things that made me smile on my birthday week:
-Channeling my version of  Betty Crocker in the kitchen
-Arranging some of my favorite products for display.
-My new Botkier handbag and it's contents: lipsticks, Moschino eyeglasses, Ray-Bans, necklace c/o EmersonMade, sequin Coach pouch (a gift from the lovely Ely), and my HOBO wallet.
-My new rain boots c/o Shop Adorn
-Looking at a picture of a five-year old me and noticing that I still like wearing red bows in my hair!

{outfit: dress, headband, and shoes c/o Modcloth, jewelry vintage and random -stay tuned for my Modcloth Stylist feature}

Happy birthday gorgeous! It's funny when we see pictures of ourselves from when we were itty bitty munches and we see a characteristic that is still so strong now as adults!

I also did a post on where I go for my daily hikes - I know you're a fitness fanatic like me and thought you might like it :)

I hope you have had a truly idyllic birthday weekend, it sounds like you've had a fantastic week!

Love the 5 year old photo, I have one fairly similar, except with a pink bow in my hair - I still love wearing them now, I consider them to definitely brighten up your whole persona.

Hoping everything is going well with the glitter guide, I'm looking forward to its launch.
