This is the outfit I wore to celebrate my 23rd birthday this past weekend. I organized a sushi dinner and invited some of my closest friends and family. Despite the constant food mistakes at the restaurant, we still managed to have a great time. No sushi dinner buffet is ever perfect... right?

The night before I also met up with another group of friends and we decided to have a taco night to celebrate a couple of birthdays including mine. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen these photos, but here are a few recaps (and yes, there was A LOT of dessert):

  

Overall it was a fantastic birthday! I'm optimistic about the upcoming year, and looking forward to seeing how it will unfold. One thing I do want to know is if 23 is the age you stop excusing yourself from doing things because you're "still young"? Am I officially... old?

Hi! Either you are here because you know me (personally or digitally), or you may have randomly stumbled upon this post, but I welcome you.

For a long time I have been talking about starting a blog. One where I can write about three things that inspire me the most: fashion, beauty and life.

Ever since I was little, I have always loved playing dress-up - back then it was with my mom's shoes pretending to be a teacher, but now I enjoy taking different pieces from my closet to see what I come up with.... if I think it looks good, I will share it.

I'm also a HUGE lover of makeup. I started a YouTube channel a few years ago and was surprised to see that people (that I never met) actually took an interest in watching and commenting on my videos. This would also be a place for me to share those videos.

I basically just want somewhere to document the important things (at least to me) that happen in my life. The photos above were taken by Maria Aguilar, a photographer and digital communications professional based in the GTA. She is currently offering an amazing Blogger Mini-Shoot Package for $65 (limited time only). The promotion ends August 1, 2012, and then the price will go back to $95. See below for details and book a photo shoot now!

 
I would love your feedback on everything! As I tweak away on the design of this blog and add more categories and pages, feel free to comment and let me know what you think. Also, connect with me on Twitter! I love meeting new people.
