    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.

    Styled by NOLA…
