Monday Must Haves: May 9, 2016 The Birthday Edition
Happy Monday, friends! I hope you guys are having a great day so far! I definitely am, because this week is my birthday week! So this week's Monday Must Haves are going to be about how to make your birthday week (because your birthday really deserves more than just a day of celebration) awesome!
Every event, especially birthdays need an official hashtag! Why? That way when you look back on Instagram, Twitter, and whatever other social media you might be using you can do a quick search and see what awesome things all of your friends posted! For my birthday this weekend we have a very original hashtag of "#Megans24." I just went onto Twitter and Instagram and made sure no one else had used that hashtag, and I'll be telling people at my Disney party to please use that on all pictures and tweets!
There's no better occasion than a birthday to pull out your favorite black dress! No matter how your spending your birthday, with friends at dinner, hanging out at Magic Kingdom, or just hanging out at home, that little black dress is going to make you look fabulous!
There are a few essentials when it comes to birthday makeup. One is a flawless base, which I always reach for NARS Sheer Glow. The next is great brows, which I grab the Anastasia Brow Wiz because you can be extra precise in filling in your brows! Then you need the perfect mascara, and right now I'm loving Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes to give long, voluminous lashes with not a lot of effort. And last you need the perfect lip color. The color I always reach for on a night out, or if I want to look extra fierce is NARS Dragon Girl, which is really the perfect red for almost any skin tone!
Makeup is really subjective though! Wear as much or as little as you want. Wear colors that make you feel great. It's your big day after all!
Birthdays require the perfect playlist. This is where Spotify is going to be your best friend. Whether your driving a few hours away for a girls getaway, or need a "get ready to go out" playlist, Spotify has everything! One song I'm loving right now is the new Calvin Harris and Rihanna song "This Is What You Came For"! It's the perfect dance jam/ car party song!
If there's one thing I love the most about birthdays (besides spending time with my friends and family!) it's food! It's the perfect excuse to eat as much as you want of whatever you want! I'm really excited because for my birthday weekend my family, two best friends, and I are headed to Walt Disney World and we have breakfast reservations at Boma! If you've never been to Boma, you must! It's one of the best restaurants on Disney property, especially at breakfast. What I love most is their carving station with the best ham, and all the pastries, because I'm all about getting more carbs!
I usually don't have an Etsy must have, but I thought I would share something I'm doing this week. From now, until Wednesday, May 11, 2016, at midnight, my Etsy Shop is having a sale! Use the code "BIRTHDAY24" for 24% off your order of $15 or more! My shop is closing Thursday morning, until Monday morning at 9 AM while I'm celebrating my birthday. There are styles that won't be coming back, so if you love something now is your time to get it!
Well that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves! If you've tried any of these things, or have anything you think I should try let me know in the comments! Also let me know what your birthday must have is!
