It was a great week. A really fabulous, awesome week! I turned 23 years old on Monday and it was honestly one of the best birthdays in a while. It felt like my birthday for once, and my sister baked me cupcakes and I got the most adorable Kate Spade bag as a present from my mom.
The weekend was fun too -- I had a birthday brunch and all my best friends from college came and celebrated. It was good food, laughs, and endless amounts of mimosas.
Actually, now that I think about it, I haven't really "blogged" about life since before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving was fabulous and the entire weekend was really great. Food and family and a few birthday cakes is always a plus in my book.
I shopped a shit ton on Black Friday and throughout the weekend, and on Cyber Monday. I don't know if I'll blog about everything but I'm sure you will see my purchases here and there in reviews and monthly favorites. I already have some great posts planned for next week--it may be an entire beauty themed week but I've never done that and I have a lot of beauty products that I want to talk about.
Aside from having a great week (I also have off from work today, it's my mom's birthday, and my family is coming over to celebrate tonight), it was also my first time working Black Friday/Cyber Monday at a retail company. Working e-commerce on Cyber Monday was INSANE! I have never experienced anything like it but it was sort of thrilling. I'm a social media coordinator but help out with customer service so it was really crazy on Monday. It was really interesting though.
