My birthday is in 4 days. I started celebrating officially this past weekend. I knew I wanted to take birthday photos in this amazing sequin Antik Batik dress that I picked up from Reciproque in Paris. I use the 125th St 1 train station atleast 3 times a week and I realized it’s painted in the same colors of my dress and thus this early Birthday Shoot was born!

Dress: Antik Batik | Heels: L.A.M.B.

I’m celebrating my birthday every weekend this month. It’s a monumental one. I’m turning 3o. I honestly can’t believe it. I remember when I was 15 just wanting to drive away and live on my own and make my own money. Now I’m far from my small home town of Durham North Carolina, and living in Harlem, in a city I’ve loved since before I ever came here. The best feeling is speaking to my grandmother and having her tell me she’s proud of me. A lot of people made sacrifices so I could live my dreams. I worked very hard for everything I have and I am proud of the woman I have become. I am blessed to have such amazing friends and family who are 100% behind everything I do. I am grateful for it all and for every day of the 29 years I’ve been on this planet.
