Birthday Wishes, Give With Love, xo

On 13th October 2013, I started a birthday tradition, whereby I selected a group of charities to raise awareness and funds for.  I asked friends and family to kindly make a donation in lieu of gifts.  In my twenties, I had reached a point in my life where I no longer needed to accumulate more things.  I love presents just as much as anyone, but the truth was I didn’t need them.  I would rather friends and family give what they would have spent on a birthday present to a charity instead.  So, with that in mind, I used my blog as a platform to help raise awareness for the selected charities over the years.  This year, the theme is blue.  It is the commonality between all three charities I would like to highlight this year.  Blue is representative of the ocean, which directly correlates to both Force Blue and Grand Cayman Eco Divers: Coral Nursery Conservation Program.  Having spent nearly my entire life living on an island, I am drawn to the ocean.  I …

Birthday Wishes, With Love From Boston xo

  Hello from Boston! Today I am celebrating my birthday in my favorite city, Boston.  A little birthday tradition of mine is to help create awareness for some amazing charities.  This year, since I am in Boston I would like to give some love and attention to some incredible charities here.  I can’t forget about home, so I will also be sharing three of my favorite charities in the Cayman Islands which I have had the privilege of working with for some years now. Birthdays, tend to be days of reflection…  I just want to be able to say that I have lived and know that I gave this life all I had.  I have traveled and that has been grand! I am truly blessed to have met so many incredible people in this life.  I look forward to more of life’s adventures and I can’t wait to meet more wonderful people along the way.  I am so very thankful for my friends — they are the family we choose.  My family is the best, …

Birthday Girl Wishes xo

    Hello everyone!  I hope you all are having a beautiful day!  The weekend was crazy beautiful from a Masquerade Ball (will soon have a post on that with the behind the scenes of making the decorations) and then a pre-birthday party in 1920’s fashion. For me it’s the end of a beautiful era my roaring twenties are officially over.  Last night I celebrated the end of my twenties in true roaring twenties fashion (flapper girl costumes included) with a Gatsby themed party with some of the most amazing people I know! Thanks for the memories! Pink Champagne and Red Velvet Cupcakes was the way to end the night, and also makes a spectacular Birthday Breakfast. Now it is time to embrace and celebrate a new decade.  As far as I am concerned age is just a number and we are as old as we feel.  In the wise words of one of my favorite writers: “We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.” – George Bernard …
