My Golden Day

natashaleeds-stylishlee-blog-anniversary-birthday-post-all-white-bandage-bodycon-skirt-crop-top-outfit-rose-gold-heels-mules-high-key-aviators-desi-perkins Good Morning and happy, happy, happy MONDAY! & a special hello to all my fellow Libra gals ♥

Since you received an entire years break from hearing me yap about my birthday. Please allow me to talk about it one more time, haha. All jokes aside, I want to start by saying thank you for all of your beautiful birthday wishes! I can’t begin to tell you just how much they actually mean to me, but just know they mean the world and more. This is our third time celebrating my birthday together and each time around you have all been incredibly kind, sweet and supportive. Thank you for taking the time out to send me such beautiful words and for making this day even more special for me.

Just a few weeks ago my girlfriend made me realize that this was the year of my golden birthday. Once that realization set in, I instantly became excited. The year 2016 is my golden year and I didn’t even realize it. For my gals out there wondering what’s a golden birthday, it’s basically an once-in-a-lifetime event that occurs when you turn the same age of your birthdate.

I remember as a child I told myself that day would never come and whenever it did I would be too old to even care. Well, to my younger self…I still care! Today on September 26th, I’ve turned 26 years old and I am still sharing the same feelings of excitement about my golden birthday like when I was 6 years of age ♥natashaleeds-stylishlee-blog-anniversary-birthday-post-all-white-bandage-bodycon-skirt-crop-top-outfit-rose-gold-heels-mules-high-key-aviators-desi-perkins

A few years ago I started a little tradition where I would go out for dinner with family and friends the night before my birthday so I could blow out my candles as the clock hit midnight. Well this year I followed tradition except rather than ringing in my golden day with family and friends I blew my candles out at midnight with only my husband Emanuel by my side. Call it fate or call it coincidence but 2016 truly has been my golden year. I got married to the love of my life earlier this year and now we are ringing in my birthday together…just the two of us. Cheers to that ♥

Fun Fact: I tried Krispy Kreme doughnuts for the very first time when I got married this past March. Ever since then I’ve been jokingly telling Manny that for my next birthday there would be no need for a birthday cake because I only wanted doughnuts from Krispy Kreme. Well guess who finally got her wish? Yes I have stacks and stacks and stacks of dough(nuts) to last me for the next few days. I really love the original doughnuts but since Fall is here I’ve fallen in love with the Salted Caramel Doughnut.

On a fashion-related note, I wore all white to ring in my birthday last night to signify another big leap I’m about to take [I promise you’ll know my secret very soon]. Right…back to what I wore out to dinner last night. Fitted, skin tight and body-hugging in all the right places! Wham Bam, thank you mam! HAHA! So I went with a basic, white, cropped top and paired it with a matching white, midi, bandage skirt from Guess.

I really wanted to pay homage to my golden day and since I love sticking to themes I just had to find something gold to wear with my outfit. That said, I went with my rose gold mules from Ted Baker and my matching rose gold choker that I picked up in Forever 21 just a few days ago.

Again, thank you, thank you thank you for always filling my love bucket up with so much kindness and support. Sending hugs and kisses. Talk Soon. Nuff Love, Natasha ♥

[P.S. Notice the NEW blog layout? I hope you guys like it! I was ready for some change and I have literally spent my last few days trying to get it all together. Since I did it on my own, there are a few kinks I’m still trying to figure out so please bare with me for any inconvenience].
