Turning 23 was a monumental age for me so in honor of my birthday I decided to have a #birthdayfestivities weekend week started on October 1st and ended on October 4th.
This is a photo heavy post!
On Thursday, I went to the Glendon Bar & Grill for happy hour and the Ace Hotel Rooftop to celebrate my birthday with a fellow classmate who also shared the same birthday as me. I had a wonderful time because it was the first time I actually went to a rooftop lounge. I know, surprising right? Considering that I live in LA! I stayed there for a few hours then proceeded to attempt to attend Zanzibar. It looked a little dry so my sister and I came back home and went to Diddy Reese and stocked up on some cookies to conclude the night festivities.
On Friday, I FINALLY walked around a large portion of the UCLA campus with my sister. Since I am soo far from everything and barely step foot on main campus it was a huge deal for me. We trekked to the School of Business, to the Arts School and some other campus buildings which unfortunately I cannot remember. I never really appreciated the beauty that is UCLA because my school is soo far from everything so it was wonderful to get the chance to explore!

On Saturday I attended the Getty Museum with my family and later on that evening I attended Beso Restaurant in Hollywood. I had a great time with my family and friends. I was even surprised that my family had bought me a cake [pictures below].

To end off the weekend, we attended the Room Bar in Santa Monica. We only stayed for an hour but within that short time frame I had a blast. All in all I had a wonderful birthday weekend. I can already feel the blessings that will come my way at this age.
