Happy Cinco de Mayo or should I say Cinco de Drinko?
This past weekend was full of fun festivities and the weather made the weekend that much better. Finally, we’re getting actual spring weather! Saturday we had a surprise Cinco de Mayo themed party for my best friend’s birthday! I love planning themed parties, they’re way more fun than regular birthday parties. Of course, it’s no party without photo booth props! I went onto Pinterest and searched for some free printables to make 🙂 Check out the picture I posted on my Instagram.
Sunday, my friend had a house warming brunch at her new condo. She had beautiful pink decorations and theeeeee food, so delish! For drinks, mimosas, margaritas, and wine was served. ♥ Her aunt made the best margaritas but refused to share her recipe lol. (Welp, this just means she’ll just have to continue making them for our get togethers, totally okay with that). 😛 I was able to squeeze in a 20 min nap before heading back out to my boyfriends for a cookout that evening. Talk about making moves! (You can always follow me on snapchat to see my weekend festivities @beyondhercurls).
Since the weather was so nice Sunday and I knew I’d be out the whole day, I decided to wear an extremely light top, I didn’t want something extra fitting just to get hot quicker. I wanted to keep my shoes and bag neutral since my top was so bright. I went with a white clutch and nude heels (you can never go wrong with nude heels). Thick block heels are definitely my go to’s when I have lots of plans and just places to go. For one, they don’t get stuck in sidewalk cracks, two, dig into the grass, and three, are just super comfy! Of course, I changed into cute sandals for the cookout. For the most part, you’ll always see me wearing dainty gold jewels, I just love it! My necklace actually broke that more (I was so frustrated) but I remade it. I made two knots towards the bottom of the chain and viola— wore it just like that!
As for my hair, well I just pinned one side up. 🙂 Note: I’ll be doing a hairstyles for curly hair post pretty soon (stay tuned)! **You are always welcomed to leave me ideas on post or anything you’d like to see on curly hair or check out my series: Curly Hair Diaries to see my curly hair journey**
