My Christmas Eve Birthday!

Hello everyone  I hope you are all having a lovely day! I know I am because today is my birthday!!! Yayyy! Unlike some people who think aging is a terrible thing I am trying to focus on the positives. Many people didn't get a chance to see the end of this year and I am blessed, alive and fortunate so I am having fun celebrating!

Now I know people may be wondering how having a Christmas Eve birthday works in terms of the whole gift protocol. Well here is how I make it work, no double gifting! Just kidding! I am thankful for everything I receive and everything my family does for me.

 I usually begin my birthday festivities a few weeks before my actual birthday. This year I began celebrating while on a cruise at the beginning of December and I just carried on celebrating!

Aside from taking me on a relaxing cruise, my amazing hubby also gave me a new phone, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and I am still figuring out how it works. Goodbye Blackberry and hello functionality! I may do a review on this phone soon.

He also bought me tickets to go to L.A and attend the Makeup Show in March! I am looking forward to meeting other professionals in the industry. 

My sister  Amanda and I celebrated my birthday together and the little sweetheart spent hours in the kitchen whipping up cupcakes from scratch. She even made me a card which was adorable and so thoughtful! 

My sister and my mom bought me this beautiful new vanity table for my birthday. I love the color because it matches with my bedroom furniture. When I set it up I will do an updated makeup storage post.

A couple of days before my actual birthday I had a pre-birthday lunch and we gorged ourselves on scrumptious foods at a restaurant called Union Social.

Parmesan rosemary fries 

Chicken and veggie flat bread

Pineapple, orange cocktail

Creamy garlic linguine with chicken 

Cranberry cocktail

 Tonight for my actual birthday I went to dinner with my hubby, and we are spending a romantic night in a beautiful hotel suite. There isn't much to do or many places open the day before Christmas but we manage to always make the most of it.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas Eve and excited for tomorrow! I am off to enjoy the rest of the night.
