Hey, guys! I apologize for the hiatus – I’ve been busy with my last days of work, and squeezing in more time spent with friends. I leave for school tomorrow morning, and probably won’t get the chance to see them again until January. :< Anyway.. I just wanted to make a quick, photo-heavy post on how I celebrated my 21st birthday a week in advance with my family yesterday. : )
We all had dinner at Century Super Buffet in Queens Village, which is conveniently close to where I live. I haven’t eaten there in years, but was not disappointed when I had my fill of COCONUT SHRIMP (<3) and other various Chinese dishes. The only thing that was lacking were their selection of sushi.
Afterwards, my friends took me out for a “special surprise”. The original plan was to go bowling, but instead we headed out to a coffee house in West Hempstead called The Witches Brew. The atmosphere and decor was amazing! We were seated in a dimly lit, semi-private area with swanky couches and other awesome furnishing. ; )
The whole coffee shop had a dark, gothic, and antique feel to it – definitely my type of place. My friends jokingly told me that this is where all the local hipsters hang out. :P The menus looked pretty cool, too, and had really creative names for many of their drinks and desserts.
I ended up ordering a peach smoothie, since I was still full from the buffet. SO GOOD. It was a heavenly blend of flavored syrup, vanilla ice cream, crushed ice, and whipped cream. <3 It completely convinced me to come back here again. ;D
I really had a great time last night. : ) There were too many photos taken to post onto here, though. But if you’re interested, click on this link to check out the Facebook album where I uploaded them all! :D
To be honest, I definitely think that running this blog has made a major impact on what people decide to give me as a gift. For example, no one would have ever thought that I would be into cosmetics two years ago! I guess this just means that I’m becoming more comfortable and outspoken with my personal taste and style. : ) Until next time! ^.^
