I am so super blessed to see 24, I’m in my feelings all over again just writing this post. My 24th birthday was amazing, It was literally everything I wanted it to be!
On my actual birthday, July 11th — yes 7/11 like the slurpee spot, yes like Beyoncé’s hit song (which I low key think she wrote for me) — I decided to treat my self to a spa day that I booked in advance. I enjoyed a full body massage, facial, pedicure plus an eyebrow wax and tint at Aveda Salon & Spa. Relaxed is an understatement. I spent three whole hours there and it felt like I was floating on cloud nine when I left. This will definitely be my new birthday tradition. No matter how I’m celebrating in the years to come, it will ALWAYS start with a spa day #TREATYOSELF.
I went from relaxation to dealing with the annoying task of renewing my tags. Word of advice, do it in advance, because who wants to go to the Secretary of State on their birthday? Luckily I didn’t have to, I came up with the grand plan of renewing them online after finding out there were more than 100 people in line at the SOS near my house (no thanks).
My day ended with dinner at one of my FAVORITE places with my favorite person (my man), at Brick Street Bar & Grill. They have the most beautiful set up on their patio for outdoor dining and live music. Oh, and their steaks are the BOMB, which is exactly what I ordered.
The next day was the big celebration! But before we got to that, my day was busy with a mall run, Ulta stop and birthday photoshoot. I spent hours at the mall finding shoes, makeup and accessories to go with my outfit. Then I spent a couple more hours getting ready. Finally we knocked out my birthday shoot, which came out perfect (thanks to my love), and headed to J Baldwin’s for my birthday dinner!
Everything was perfect, From the gifts (that I told people not to bring lol), everyone that was there, the food, and of course my beautiful cake! I’ve been on a birthday high ever since, and probably will be all month long. I’m grateful for another year of life, where I’m at in life and who’s in my life. I can’t wait to see what chapter 25 brings (actually I can because that means I’ll be nearing 30 lol).
