...A birds eye view of my birthday weekend...

I started the weekend looking and feeling good...had the brows done...used a little make-up...glossed the lips and took out my thrifted faux fur...
...signature drinks were served at the party...don't ask what was in it...don't know...but, it was good.  It was served up in my birthday glass...that is now missing...
 
I rocked the mic...
 
 My cuz hosted the party...a ladies night/aquarius celebration...
 We had a little male entertainment...No pics of me...what happens at the party stays at the party.
 I woke up like this...the next day...make-up smashed...wearing a crown.
 This is my birthday haul...Love from my Mini...she hit up my favorite thrift store and her favorite shoe store...I love this girl.  She knows her mommy so well.

The next day Mini and I went to my happy place. 
IKEA...this is just a sample of some of the things that caught my eye..




 Photo bombed...
I love this planter for my terrace...I am so ready for spring...WTF.






 The next day I decided to try my hand at this ombre cake....and guess what?


 I found a tip on Youtube...those ladies can really bake...I cut off all the crust from the cake...it gave the cake a more uniform dimension...I was going to throw out the scraps...when it hit me, I could freeze it and use it to make cake pops later...so that's what I did...
 I did it!  I really did it!
The cake and the frosting finally got along...a vegan recipe...and it is now my go to...now that I have the base down...I can now get creative.  Shoe cakes, handbag cakes, character cakes...it's all in my future..
I just want to thank everyone who came out to celebrate and party this weekend...I had a blast...love ya.
