My Golden Birthday

Yesterday, I celebrated my 26th birthday, my golden birthday. And let me tell you guys, it was a good one! It was the perfect mix of relaxation and turn-up time. I started out the day with a run around Lake Merritt followed by an uh-maaaaazing 75-minute massage and wax. Afterwards, my dad surprised me from Sacramento and showed up at my door with a decadent birthday cake and huge bouquet of flowers! To seal the deal on this golden day, I met up with 15 of my friends at one of my favorite bar/restaurants, Make Westing, where we had a blast throwing around bocce balls and tossing back drinks and cilantro and lime popcorn. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday :)

Over the weekend I scored an amazing deal on this tie-dye maxi with see-through bottom from Express for $15! I went for a neutral tone and paired tan/brown wedges along with a natural tone leather satchel from Ethiopia. For jewelry, I wanted a pop of color so, I opted for turquoise beaded bracelets with a multi-strand necklace. 

Gold eyeshadow added subtle shine and sparkle and I continued the turquoise theme with turquoise eyeliner on my lower lid line.

It was too damn hot to straighten my hair so curls was the way to go.

My running buddy, Emily with my boyfriend, Jovan.

How cool is my younger cousin? Ladies, he's single!

Stylish duo, no? Hot couple alert!

I spy my favorite blondie, Shannon!

Turn-up girls Alisia Perez and Kharriyah.

These crazy kids are too funny! Natesha and Kaimel always keep me laughing. 

Me and my man :)

Flowers from Pops.

Such a decadent cake! Purely for the chocoholics.
