I wore this red dress to my birthday dinner exactly eleven days ago today. Ron took me to Portofino Cucina Italiana in LA where our romantic 5-course meal was absolutely amazing! This red dress is one of my most favorite Forever21 sale buys because I only grabbed it so I have something to try on but I ended up loving it, and it has the perfect shade of red. Since I'm tall, it also has the perfect maxi length that I prefer.
In other news, I came across an article on HuffPost entitled "2 Ways To Be Happier" and immediately asked myself, what makes me happy. I thought of Ron, Fox and Chippy, my dogs and food. However, the article was not about tangible things, it is about how you can make yourself and other people happier. The article also emphasizes that happiness is a choice and that in can be found in two ways: by a shift in your perspective and recognizing something you are thankful for, and two, committing random acts of kindness. It's a pretty good read in my opinion...especially if you're having a rough time.
Before you leave, I am happy to announce that the ultimate cash giveaway is back! :) As always, it is organized by Oh My Gosh Beck! and will last for nearly a month. Good luck! :)
