Another Year, Another Start

Happy New Year guys! I wish you all the best in this new year and hope that it is filled with many blessings, joy and happiness. 2013 had it’s ups and downs for me but I am truly grateful to be alive to see another year, and to get another fresh start. This was my very first time going out to celebrate as I usually just bring in the new year with a party at my place or celebrating with my family. My boyfriend and I along with a few other friends attended a private surprise birthday party very close to the festivities in Times Square. We had an amazing time and I am really glad that we went out and tried something different. I decided on a smokey eye accentuated with glitter and a nude lip to go along with my simple, yet still sexy not so little black dress. I was feeling very Audrey Hepburn-ish, couldn’t tell me nothing lol.
