On July 27th, I'm a loser! Growing up and being a little self-centered, I wasn't a huge fan of 7-27 because everyone in my family - Mom, Dad and sister - had something to celebrate. My Dad was born on July 27th. Then, in what must have been a momentary loss of sanity, they decided to marry on July 27th. THEN, in what surely was a cruel twist of fate, my sister arrived into this world 11 years later on, you guessed it, July 27th!
Anyway, now I kind of love it - it's a festive, fun day for us all to enjoy together, after all. So, since we did a little round-up on my Dad for Father's Day, today I'd like to share a few things that my baby sister Laura - 26 years old today - thinks are just great:
Laura loves - LOVES - the color pink. She's wedding planning right now, and you can bet your peonies there's going to be pink of some shade in the color scheme. These pale pink Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps might be just the thing to peak out from underneath a white gown next June...
Being completely ungifted in the art of nail polish self-application myself, I am awed by L's ability to paint her own manicure... and with such fun colors to boot! Not sure I can pull off Lavender at the office, but until she's a full-time lawyer, she certainly can!
If it doesn't glitter like a Disney fairy princess on the way to the ball, don't even bother!
This Kate Spade bracelet is a perfect combination of ladylike kitsch and glittery glam. When it comes to Laura, the more rhinestones, the better.
Of course, these are just a few things Laura enjoys. Others include online shopping, steak, Taylor Swift, baking insanely delicious cakes, Angry Birds, bowling, and sushi.
Happy Birthday, baby sis!
