I really can’t believe it’s already September! The month of September will always hold a very special place in my heart not simply because it’s my birthday month but because this is the month I decided to start http://www.stylbug.com. I’m planning a very special blog post for my one-year blog celebration later this month so definitely stay tuned for that!
As with every birthday comes the nostalgic feelings of new beginnings and tranformations under way. You’re not only one year older but you’re also hopefully a little wiser too. This past year has probably been the roughest year to date. Everything from graduating grad school, to relationships, to finding my self-confidence and dealing with depression; I can honestly say that 24 wasn’t easy at all. Through all the tough times though, I’ve had amazing moments with friends and family that I will cherish forever. I went on incredible trips to Palm Springs, Solvang and took a few weekend getaways to Santa Barbara. I went on new adventures, tried new foods, played up my look and totally switched up my personal style. Oh yeah, and I started a little YouTube channel too!
Nearing the end of 24, I’ve decided to live more fearlessly than ever, wake up everyday with a grateful heart and most importantly, have fun. I have some super exciting plans for my birthday this year and I’m really looking forward to celebrating the BIG 25.
I decided to create a Birthday Wish List and share some of the things I’ve been dying to have. Check it out below!

The idea of customizing my very own sunglasses is something I’ve been wanting to do for so many years. When I saw these bad boys I absolutely fell in love with the shape of the frames. I did a little customization and created a personalized tint, color and design.
I’m super picky about my denim and the moment I saw these pairs of BDG jeans, I knew I needed to add them to my collection. When buying denim, I normally stick to BDG simply becuase of the incredible fit and quaility. They suit my bodyshape really well and they last forever!

I’ve been DYING to get my hands on this palette! Knowing Urban Decay makes incredible eye shadow palettes I just know this one won’t disappoint. I can see myself wearing literally every single color for everyday looks and even more glam eye looks.

If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for planners and agendas! My planner is my baby and my everyday lifeline. I literally don’t leave the house without it! I’m a super busy gal and I’ve grown accustomed to writing things down and making daily goals and plans. Since my planner is so important, I always make sure to get one that I’m absolutely in love with (since it’s in use everyday of the year). Ban.do never disappoints and when I saw this one on their site, I knew I had to have it!

You’re probably well aware by now that skin is a major priority of mine. I tend to spend more time and money on my skin and the products I use day to day. Face masks have become apart of my weekly skin care for years now and I’ve stumbled upon a few faves. GlamGlow has definily proven itself and worked wonders on my skin! I’ve only gotten a few travel size, samples of GlamGlow’s Supermud Clearing Treatment mask and I fell in love. This mask reduces my pore size and helps combat any blemishes – it’s truely incredible.
I hope you enjoyed my birthday wishlist! As always, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your constant love and support. Cheers to 25! I’m looking forward to an incredible year of love, positivity, wellness and much success!
Sending so much love and happiness to my love bugs.
