Two birthdays in May: The Beauty Look Book turns two! Time has flown by so fast I cannot believe it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to each of you who have been a daily inspiration to me. I cannot express my gratitude to those who have shared their passion, thoughts and love for beauty with me through this small blog. I thank each and every one of you who visit and comment each week. Thank you for your support!

Also, this past month, another birthday occurred and I am no longer a twenty-something. I have been beyond spoiled with so much. The best was a surprise birthday dinner from my family: specially catered with delicious food, wine and cakes and a fun How-Well-Do-You-Know-Sabrina-Trivia-Game. We had an evening full of laughs.

Trivia Game – designed by my sister:

This one was the one my husband filled out. He got question 5 wrong!!! He was so confident he was right because he hears and sees the words “miu miu” on a weekly basis. Can you guess the right answer?*

I had a few other birthday outings with close friends (and a couple more to come soon) and I was spoiled with beautiful flowers, thoughtful gifts, delicious dinners – all of which made turning 30 so much more fun (and less painful) than I had expected.

* Answer is Kate Spade, thanks to my sister for my high school graduation (a loooong time ago!)
