It’s my birthday! Yay!!.. or something or other? No really as much as I pout about how I’m getting so old (I know I’m really not) I always remind myself that growing older is a privilege. Life is what you make of it and this past year has been one of the best!
To celebrate my birthday, my hubby took me out for some dinner, drinks and jazz in New York City this past weekend so I thought I’d share with you what I wore as well as all my makeup deets! I kept it very simple yet romantic and perfect for a special occasion or date.
So grab some vino (if you’re of age) or your favorite fall beverage, and enjoy my attempt at casually posing for the camera.
my BDAY OUTFIT
This dress was exactly what I was looking for! I wanted something a bit sexy, but still classy and I wanted lace (I’m a sucker for lace!) I saw this on Asos.com and went “YAAASSSS!” If I could do it over again though I would go a size down (I ordered a UK 6) because it did fit a bit loose (I’m also 5’1” for reference).
I paired the dress with some really special nude heels because special occasions call for one-of-a-kind shoes, right?! Just ask Cinderella 😉
my BDAY MAKEUP
I kept the makeup very minimal; I wanted the focus to be a healthy, glowing complexion! I achieved it with a little help from my MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Foundation (you can find my review HERE) and I dowsed myself in none other than Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. I also wore it as my lid color and used ‘Lt. Brown’ from Lorac’s Pro Palette II to define my crease. That was seriously it for my eyes! I wore my all-time favorite Ardell Natural 120 Demi for lashes and smoked out my bottom lash line with ‘Cocoa’ from the same Lorac palette.

How cute is this *Ankit wall canvas? I had so many of my dreams become reality this past year so I thought it was quite appropriate! I don’t know where this year will take me but I can’t wait to make even more of my dreams come true! Let’s just say I’m ready to work hard, and play even harder!
Any other September birthdays out there?? Let me know below!
*TheAnkit.com was kind enough to send their Make Your Dreams Reality Wall Canvas to me for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own.
