What I’m Loving: Birthday Week Edition

As you all know from my last post on my blog I turned 23 on Sunday August 18th. I had a very chilled and relaxed birthday with not one but two naps! (more on that later on in this post!) I am very grateful for my family and friends that made me feel very special over this last week/weekend. I could not have asked for a better birthday (well maybe skipping out on the cold I had :().

Here are a few of my favorite things for last week/my birthday!


The first thing I want to talk about is my skydiving experience. I decided that I was not going to take any pictures or video because I wanted to soak it all in. I also didn’t want to worry about my DSLR camera being stolen while I jumped out of a plane!


So all I have to prove that I did actually skydive is a certificate and a t-shirt that says “I jumped!”. Hopefully that is enough proof and you will believe me when I say that it is the most terrifying yet amazing experience I have ever been a part of. I got to do a few twirls in the air aka “air donuts” which just made the experience even more amazing. If you are thinking about it let me tell you it is a once in a lifetime experience and you will not regret it.

Sadly I had a cold the day of my skydiving adventure. This made me have a different experience than what someone who is not sick gets to have. I had to sit down after we landed because all of the air that I got from free-falling was a shock to my system. I knew it was going to hit me harder than my friend but still voluntarily decided to skydive. Overall I can say I wouldn’t change a thing, even the fact that I was sick because I ended up having two great naps on my actual birthday something I haven’t done in about 18 years.


Since you all know I love me some beauty products I had to include my favorite four products that kept me extremely happy this past week. The first one should come to no surprise it is the Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in achiote this is simply beautiful! Next is my trusty never let me down concelear by Benefit, Erase Paste this stuff is my holy grail at concealing my under eye bags. The last two were featured in my birthday haul. They are the Deborah Lippmann glitter polish in Happy Birthday, very fitting for this week and the Laura Mercier lip gloss in Bare Pink.


One last Favorite I promise! I picked up these boots at Target and I am in love with them! They are something I wouldn’t normally wear but I decided that this fall is going to be all about experimenting and trying new things.


I am a sucker for the detailing and colors that these boots show. I think I may have found my new favorite fall boot.

I want to take this time to thank you for following my blog I have a little over 50 followers you all are amazing and I would have never guessed I would have so many people interested in what I had to say when I started this blog in January. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Has anyone else skydived? What was your experience like? Would you do it again?
What is on your bucket list? Are excited for fall? I am so ready for fall to get here!

See you on Wednesday!
