These bras are my favorite brands. I'm not big on Victorias Secret, I am however all about Gap Body. These were a few of my newest purchases for the year along with a bunch of super cute underwear, tons of socks, and lots of vitamins. Oh and of course after I decided to give up alcohol as my New Years resolution, the first weekend into it had to be a pre-planned wine tasting trip. I decided to be realistic and chose to 86 hard liquor instead, leaving room for wine and champagne only. But then I realized Maria's bachelorette party in San Diego next month, Coachella in April and then her wedding in the Philippines all sort of require vodka/jager to happen and I'm not setting myself up for failure. So now I changed my new years resolution (again) to just not getting any parking tickets. I swear I spent a fortune last year.

I got lots of fun gifts for my birthday and the best one I received was a MacBook Air. I've been wanting one for a couple of months now so it's time to retire my old MacBook. So unexpected and so appreciated. I am very content with how 2011 turned out. 2012 is going to be a fabulous year. :) My only resolution-- is to quit with the exclamation points. I tend to get exclamation point happy when it's really just an empty overstatement. It's usually okay to use but in most cases I've just been so used to punctuating my simple sentences/tweets/captions for instagram this way so it doesn't sound so serious. Now, I think it's time to stop that. Period.
My camaraderie with females is extremely high and am blessed to have a small close knit gang and various friends that factor into different areas in my life but aren't part of the same group. With these girls above, I have managed to celebrate my birthday with them consecutively for the past few years and it makes me really happy they wouldn't miss it for the world. We were stumped on deciding what to wear since every year we try to stick to a theme to make it more festive and found that difficult. Somehow surprisingly we ended up having matching shoes which was so unplanned but pretty cool. My mom wanted to host a small dinner for us which was nice since it was a good change up from our usual outings in the city and plus my BFF Tomiko is super pregnant so staying local for her was much more convenient. Had an amazing limo ride to the city that took us to Twenty Five Lusk, my favorite spot for drinks in SF then hopped around what felt like a million places afterward. I finally came to the conclusion that my partying days are over and that my career in this area will end at 27. I am satisfied I've experience enough (at least in SF) and that resume is now complete. I am so so excited to be 28 and I started it with such an awesome day. Here's what I wore for the evening...

My girlfriend Maria is having her civil wedding tomorrow and the big shabang will take place in the Philippines next year in April. I'll be wearing a similar dress like this only without the tights to cover my bug bite bruises from last month (I can't believe they've lasted this long). Anyway, another velvet piece I like. I actually wore this to the Sara Bareilles concert a few weekends ago. I seriously want to freeze time-- it is slipping by way too fast! On the upside, I am very excited for a gazillion things in the near future, mañana to start with-- can't wait!!
