The Birthday Update

Sunday, March 28, 2010
Happy Birthday to me in a month!

As you know I've been planning my Birthday party for a while now and .....
I think we may be getting close to finding a venue! A lot of places in New York are either closed down (due to the economy), too big of a club, too selective at the door to invite a lot of friends, have a crazy cover charge, or play womp womp music. This process has taken me a while but I checked out a venue last Friday that I LOVED and I'm just waiting for the Manager to confirm that it's available. It's beautiful. It's a private room on the second floor of this New York boutique hotel. Fingers crossed! We've almost got everything off the check list. The invites (via facebook and word of mouth) have been out and all we have to hope is that it works out with zero drama, hehehe.

Hair Concept

I love Aaliyah. If you couldn't already tell ... I adore her.
I already wear my hair a lot like her straight hairstyle.

I love her style, I love her music! This is one of my favorite looks from her. I love the wavy style of this hair do, I don't like tight tight curls so this wavy look is what i'm going for the night of my Birthday. Let's hope my hair stylist can get this right. I usually wear my hair super straight but it will be nice to have some body to it to create a little drama.

Makeup Concept

I love this look by Makeup artist, Joy. Check out her blog HERE. This
is exactly what I want to do for my Birthday. A strong dramatic smokey eye and a really cute lip color.
Don't you just LOVE her eyebrows? Her skills are amazing. Hope she doesn't mind me stealing this photo
from her site to show you guys : )

Wardrobe ??

I will say ... it's a dress! but not revealing it just yet, you'll have to wait until the day after to find out.
