When I moved to NYC fifteen years ago, I was finally able to express myself and start to live as the woman I really am. It's a journey that still has many miles to go, but I'm here to share my thoughts, hopes, dreams and confusion. Also you know, some cute pictures too.

Cocktail Party with Friends
So this weekend was super fun! I hosted a cocktail party and had a few friends over. Recently, I got a new Betsey Johnson dress recently and I totally love the way it looks. Plus I just feel amazing wearing it! It's got a great shape, movement and feel to it.
In fact, I love this dress so much that I went out for a walk after the party and took a few more photos.
Now it's a perfect dress for a cocktail part, but now I just have to figure out when I can wear it again. See, I need more parties to go to.
For my makeup, I tried for a smokey eye, which I think came out pretty well. And since my dress had red and my heels were bright red, I found a NYX matte lip color that looked great but wasn't too long wear. I kept having to reapply/touch up my lip color. My Sephora lip cream stain was actually a much better lip color for long wear.
Throughout the night I got a ton of compliments on my dress, shoes and makeup. And of course my friends and I looked totally hot!
It was a good night. Even when I spilled my cosmo and had to clean it up!
It always makes me feel so amazing to be a girl and I especially love being with my friends too and being treated as one of the girls. I just love being a woman and being in that social role where I'm treated as a woman. It's like finding the perfect fit!
