What is pink and sparkly and has a huge satin bow?

If you guessed, "Your birthday dress?" YOU ARE RIGHT!

Exactly one month from today I will be saying "goodbye" to my early twenties and "hello" to a quarter-century of life. Initially, I was devastated by this little fact. Weeks ago I thought to myself, "Ugh. Ick. 25." But, after a little consideration, I realized that 25 isn't all that bad. I have a great job, I'm pursuing my dreams and earning a Master's degree, I have wonderful people in my life... really, I am so blessed.

So, in good 'ol Lauren fashion, I decided that for my birthday I wanted to look like a precious, pink, sparkly cupcake... at 25 years old. I began my journey to find the perfect dress. I decided that I wanted to own my first Betsey Johnson dress. Her dresses are fabulous, but you really need an occasion to wear one. They are just too great for everyday wear.  As luck would have it, I found the dress. I won't reveal pictures (yet), but let's just say it is so "me." My good friend Kim is the only person who has seen it on me, and even she said, "You're the only person I know who could get away with this..."

I am so in love with it. I cannot wait to wear it next month. Here's a tiny sneak shoes.

Keep an eye out for your don't want to miss this.
