A few weeks back on July 1st, I celebrated my birthday in style. It’s funny because as I was growing up, I was really never a birthday person believe it or not. As I became an adult, I wanted to make my birthdays a little extra special. This year I spent a few days at the beach in Ocean City, NJ where I had a chance to enjoy myself every moment. I love how my birthday falls around July 4th because that means I get to celebrate watching fireworks. I had a chance to experience awesome fireworks at the beach for the first time. When returning back home in Philly, I concluded my birthday celebration eating out at one of the best soul food spots the city has to offer, which is called Relish.
Relish is a modern southern restaurant that offers live jazz shows and a stylish dining experience. I got to tell you that the food was on point! Now I know why they say soul food is the best comfort food because it truly is. If you ever visit Philly, try this restaurant out. Believe me you will not be disappointed.
The deets on a few of my dresses I wore. The black floral dresses is from Shopbop. It falls off the shoulder, which gives it a feminine classy look. The shoes are from Report and they are so comfy for heels. I can literally wear these anywhere. The orange floral dress is from Nordstrom. The dress also falls off the shoulder with front middle ruffles.
A birthday toast to another fabulous year and always looking forward to the great things that are in store for me.
Are you celebrating a birthday this summer?
