Hello! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Today, I realized that I have officially made it to the six-month mark of blogging. Whew! That was not an easy feat. Blogging has opened up a whole new world of friendships, creativity, and self-reliance for me. Around this time last year, I remember asking myself if I was accomplishing the goals I had set out for myself in this lifetime. I realized that I wasn't, but that I was the only one stopping myself! That was a major revelation...a story for another day. I always think of birthdays as a time to reflect on the year that has passed and also as a time to evaluate my life in a major way. I also think of birthdays as bittersweet because with age (and wrinkles), also comes wisdom lol! However, I realized that getting older doesn't have to be something you dread if you are constantly making positive changes in your life towards your goals and happiness. How do you celebrate birthdays?
It's important to have something fun to look forward to on your birthday to celebrate as well! So, you can imagine how excited I was when I received this birthday card from Sephora for being a Beauty Insider with a fabulous gift from Nars (with a purchase)! Are you a Sephora Beauty Insider?

The store I selected to get my birthday gift from for being a Beauty Insider was the Sephora location at South Coast Plaza Mall. I chose to shop at that location because of the great customer service I always receive. There were a few other items I picked up while I was there (you have to purchase an item in order to receive your gift), and I will share a post about those items later on. However, I am just thrilled about trying on these new Nars Lip Pencil colors in Cruella (Velvet Matte) and Rikugien (Satin) when I go out for dinner and dancing this weekend with my friends to celebrate!
A Special Thank You to Sephora and Nars for Making Birthdays Fun Again!
Hope you Make It a Great Week:)
