Weekend bliss, birthday fun + BIG NEWS

So last weekend was another celebration for my birthday. I had to have an LA celebration in addition to Miami, right? It was also a small kick off party for our fabulous new crew and LA Woman website. This dinner had some of the most stylish girls in the city of Los Angeles. How blessed I am to have been able to celebrate with fabulous friends. I got some of the most amazing gifts (notice the beautiful kate spade box in my lap? loves.)
 I just love girlfriend get togethers.

Suzanne my beautiful adopted big sis + founder of LA Woman hosted the most amazing dinner, she made an incredible pasta and the cake was absolutely to die for!
Here she is working her magic little hands.
Here is the rest of the fabulous crew... and be sure to check out their blogs too!

So now for the big + exciting news...
The soiree was also a bit of a farewell party as I have packed up my things and am heading off to NYC next week! I am so thrilled to be making to be taking over to New York. It's something I have wanted to do forever. I have several projects in the works in Manhattan and I am ready to get those moving forward. So many exciting things happening.
I will keep you all posted on everything that happens of course. 
And don't worry, I'll be back in Los Angeles before you know it!
