Summer Journal Part II: NYC August 15, 2015

Header - Copy FINALI am birthday CRAZY! I am the type of person who will count down the days and make sure everyone is aware that my birthday is coming up. When I was younger, I use to start a countdown months and months before. Now that I have grown up a bit, I only start counting down a month or two earlier. I don’t know what it is but something about my birthday gets me so excited and happy. This summer has been quite interesting and somewhat of a roller coaster, but my birthday just made everything perfect and I entered a utopia. I know it may sound a tad crazy, but I will never-not be excited for my birthday. I can never wrap my head around people who are not excited and could care less about their birthday. I tend to get “birthday withdrawal” the next day and it sucks so much! Right when midnight hits and it is officially my birthday, I cannot sleep at all. I actually cannot sleep the day before, which does have its disadvantages.

My birthday this year was exceptionally special! My brother bought two tickets for New York and the crazy part was we only went for 24hrs. It was insane. We planned a whole day of activities to see New York City in one day and I would say we did pretty well, in terms of site seeing. In terms of luggage, all we had was one backpack each and it was perfect. All we had in our bags was identification, passports and a sweater (in case it got chilly). I loved not having so much stuff to carry, 24hr trips are the best.

In terms of fashion, I dressed very casually. A pair of ripped jeans, paired with a white t-shirt and my favourite sneakers. Of course, a red lip was the cherry on top. On the lips I first applied NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella and topped it off with Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 01.

Here are some pictures from my birthday in New York:
