Today is my birthday y’all! I am 27 years old. It’s not a milestone birthday, but actually as I typed that, I correct myself and say that any birthday that you are able to see is a milestone birthday. Thank you God for another year!
Looking back on last year’s birthday post, I would have never imagined that I would be here – and I mean that in the best way possible. I told myself last year that I would seize the day more. I am happy to report that I haven’t faltered from that mission. I haven’t waited for things and opportunities to come my way. I’ve gone out and sought them. If they weren’t there, I created them. Honestly, I didn’t even know that would be possible for me until I tried. Especially for this little blog. A blog that barely had a pulse and has now turned into a business. But it feels good, and I feel like I could cry (happy tears, of course).
To commemorate entering my 27th year of life, I decided I wanted to do an outfit post at Rick’s Dessert Diner, which recently changed locations in Sacramento after over 25 years (only a couple of blocks away). The interior still has the same nostalgia as the original, and even more dessert.
This year I’m going to have my cake… and eat it too, damnit! And in case you’re wondering what kind, it is chocolate fudge. 🙂

Thank you so so so much for supporting The Lipstick Giraffe. The support I’ve had has continued to push me to keep going – in all aspects of my life. If every year is as big as year 26 was for me, then year 27 is going to knock my socks off. I’m celebrating this week with a show, happy hours, and lots and lots of delicious food! Full report next week! 🙂
