You only live once, but if you do it right once is enough

I am a firm believer in celebrating: I celebrate accomplishments (no matter how big or small), I celebrate my friends' achievements, I celebrate special dates, I celebrate life. Because really, it's all about the small things, those little everyday miracles that make life worth living. :)
So this year for my birthday party I went all out and organized the party of my dreams: it was all pink and gold and beautiful! It turned out to be the most perfect day ever, from start to finish. Everyone in my life did their part to make me feel so special and loved: from my coworkers, to my friends and even you guys! I just wanted to thank everyone once again for all the love and support. Now here's a few shots from my "Sweet Twenty-Six"!

I went for an all pink setting, with touches of gold here and there. Even the food was on theme: pink donuts, pink sugar cookies, pink cotton candy, pink Pocky and pink cupcakes that spelled out "HAPPY BDAY SARAH".

But my favorite part were the pink drinks! If you've never tried Belvoir's Elderflower and Rose Sparkling Lemonade if are missing out big time! I first tried it during a styling studio session last September during NYFW and it instantly became my new favorite drink. Plus the packaging in so cute, how can one resist?

Details from the party. My beautiful friend Katya from Flora Theory showed up with the most beautiful flower box I've ever seen. Seriously obsessed!

And here are my birthday gifts! Gucci Marmont belt, Valentino Rockstud sandals, Saint Laurent Sac du Jour tote and Hermes Kelly Double Tour bracelet! Spoiled is an understatement, I know.

This very pink post concludes my New York adventures. On this last day in the city my babe Yana and I met up with the lovely Katya from Flora Theory and we had an amazing lunch at Bluestone Lane in the West Village. Then we proceeded to snap some pictures with this gorgeous flower box by Flora Theory! The weather was absolutely perfect but the company was even better! So sad to be leaving this amazing city once again!
