Happy New Week / Month to you my lovelies. It’s my BIRTHDAY TODAY! It’s a new day, It’s a new dawn, It’s a new life and I’m feeling good. I have officially reached middle age.
When I was a little girl, my mother would dress my sister and I up for our birthdays. She would wear us pretty dresses and some of her 18 carat gold (sorry I had to be precise because I treasure/cherish every moment of it). I particularly remember the long chain necklace that would drop down up to my tummy, it was too long. Mama didn’t care, all she wanted to do was to dress us up and wear us “blings” for the day. That was mother’s love !
After “glaming” up, My Uncle would then take us to the market (not supermarket) to buy goodies for the party. We never had anything elaborate but we had parties that was big enough for me and my other siblings and our friends.
Now that I am a mum, I get to dress my children up for their own birthdays. Since they are boys and can’t wear dresses, I get to wear dresses on my birthdays like mama used to make me do. Dressing up on birthdays was one of my child hood memories that I love and I intend to keep forever.
Now onto the dress! With Spring officially around the corner, I decided to go all blush/pastel/monotone (one colour from head to toe) wearing a simple fitted dress, a nude pair of cut out patent leather heels, a quilted blush clutch and I finished the look with a 3 tone statement necklace. There is no better way to turn up for my birthday dinner than this. I loved the look, I have never felt prettier and happy.
You guys watch out because The Pastel Trend and The Floras are typical of the spring/summer and they will be trending. My eyes have caught a lot of gorgeous Pastel colours in the stores already. Everything is looking all beautfiul in the stores this right now.
Because I’m HAPPY !
This necklace is a 3 tone one made from silver, gold, and pearls. It is not new and it was the same one I wore for my birthday last year. I clean it after every use and place it into a jewellery box. I ensure the metal rest on soft tissue / cotton wool so the colour remains intact. The necklace didn’t come with a jewelry box by the way, I made one for it.
Here is the tip, when metals don’t touch while in storage, their life span last longer. That is how I keep all my necklaces whether costume or the real deal.
I can’t say it enough but I love nude heels. I love them even more when they are pointy toe like this pair I have on. If you are petite and would love to appear taller, default to nude heels, they help elongate your legs. The nude heels are Kim Kardashian secret tool for elongating her legs. See my article for choosing your own perfect nude heels here.
This blog post will be incomplete if I do not acknowledge my father in heaven. I am so excited and thankful to God for adding another year to me. I am nothing and lost without him. I am thankful for his grace, mercy, love, provision, protection, joy, peace, happiness, family , friends and everything He has done, everything He is doing and everything that He will do, amen.
And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long…Ps 35 vs 28.
You make me happier than those who have abundant grain and wine…Ps 4 vs 7.
Thank you God because of who you are.
