Despite the constant ID'ing to play the lottery, buy wine, or order an alcoholic beverage at a restaurant, I turned 29! While my real birthday was this past Wednesday, the 30th, in typical birthday-obsessed-girl-fashion we celebrated a "birthday week" with different events including friends and family. The last celebration and the most special was a mini staycation complements of my boyfriend. We went to the W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale and spent a nice 3 days relaxing and enjoying some quality R&R. Thanks for the best time Ryguy!

Packing essentials: good suits and a good read!
First swimsuit is Beach Riot (c/o PacSun) and the rest are Mara Hoffman. The amazing book featured on my iPad is titled "The Desire Map" by Danielle LaPorte - a great read for those seeking inspiration and purpose in their goals & actions. I highly recommend it.

Some pics of the beautiful view from our room:

Fulfilling a guilty pleasure with this gorge (to me from me) Phillip Lim Pashli Backpack:

The cutest towel from Forever 21, with just the right message for a mini vacation:

And of course two couples' selfies with my favorite person:
