F21 top and ring, Michael Kors crossbody bag, Seven jean shorts,
Home sweet home! I spent the week in San Diego - A few days of work and a few more to shop, visit the zoo, and hang with my Honorary-Canadian/LA-fashionista friend Annette from The VersaStyle. We spent the day shopping at the Fashion Valley, but shocked ourselves by leaving the place with absolutely nothing! Determined to do better, we made up for it by finding a few things on 5th Ave before having dinner at a quiant little Italian place. The San Diego Zoo was a must, especially to see the Pandas! I'm just a little obsessed.... and I was pleasantly surprised by how active they were. Zhen Zhen, a two-year-old girl and a little acrobat, did not stop running and climbing for the entire 20 mins I was there. I'm sure Cirque du Soleil would love to have her!

Aqua Couture dress, House of Harlow ring, Chanel Nail Vernis in Nouvelle Vague
Now that I'm slowly approaching my mid-20's, the dinner+club Birthday routine just doesn't appeal to me anymore. Instead, I celebrated my birthday this weekend with my favorite ladies over afternoon tea. It was just what I wished for: simple and sweet.
Every year around this time, I tend to feel that there's a lot more I wanted to accomplish by 20, 21, 22... But this year is different. I'm starting to identify with the saying "live for the journey, not the destination." It's true, we often set goals and beat ourselves up on days like New Years, Birthdays etc. But no one counts the incremental changes and accomplishments that occur everyday. I chose my birthday dress to reflect what I wanted for the year ahead - Bright and bold. This will be the year to take chances, stay positive, and see every opportunity as an experience.
I'll leave the contents of the box for a post all on its own...
A dozen helium balloons = major photo-op! I had a little fun before the girls arrived. It wasn't until they arrived that I realized these balloons were in baby-shower colors, oh well :)
