    What I wore….Birthday Getaway to Miami

    Soooooooo…….. where to start!!! I haven’t been much of a traveler in fact, come to think about it, never even been a birthday person as well. Traveling was never my go to source of entertainment and relaxation besides, I have been all over the world through my books. lol You won’t find any cheaper flights than the ones you take through your imagination.lol.

    FALLing in love

    Although it still feels like Summer, mentally I am at Fall because that is my favorite season!! The weather that balances the summer sun and cool breeze is such a delight and an inspiration (too much?) lol One thing I love besides the obvious perfect weather is the fashion.
