this past month has been hectic. from moving, to traveling, apartment searching (in new york… the drama), bae searching for his dream job, crazy airbnb hosts, living out of a suitcase… I mean the list really goes on, and gets crazier. I’ve bounced back from all of the craziness, and I can truly say how grateful I am. no matter how many up’s and down’s I’ve had, this past month has taught me to live in the moment, oh, and don’t cry at work, not when you’re the happy, funny girl. It’ll freak everyone out.
In the true essence of living in the moment, I’ve blocked all the noise around me to celebrate…

birthday cards from my loving friends & family
birthday’s have always been special to me. I remember growing up, and having parties. the entire family would come to my house, everyone would sing the “happy birthday” song and I would make a wish and blow out the candles. my parents would give me great gifts, and my siblings and cousins would hug me all day. It was always a great time. I’ve always looked forward to april 3rd, and 31 years later… ain’t shit changed!!
i seriously have the greatest friends… they came from all over the country to celebrate with me. One even surprised me!
Happy 75th Birthday to my IDOL, Tina Turner… the Queen of ROCK & SOUL! When I was 17 years old, I listened to Tina Turner’s debut album Private Dancer, and fell in love. Her strong voice with her Rock and Roll style surprised me. After reading her autobiography, and watching “What’s Love got to do with it” I became completely obsessed with her.

my FAVORITE TT quote, and my motto…
If you are unhappy with anything… whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.
3 things that I LEARNED from TT:
Fringe is your BFF
Love ain’t got nothing to do with it
Women RULE the world
Outfit of the Day… TT Inspired
it’s no secret that my favorite holiday is MY BIRTHDAY. Look, I’m just happy to be here. So, let the planning begin…
And the destination is… Tulum, Mexico— I have to get there before it turns into CANCUN. For the past three years I have been trying to get to Tulum. But something always “comes up.” Now, I’m making it a priority.
