Part 2 of my Hooray Thursday: Big Birthday Wish List!

More of my birthday wishes are for the family we are building. And sharing them with you as an inspiration already feels like it is going to become a reality pretty soon.

Part one of my birthday celebration was spent with family over Italian dinner, drinking wine, lots of laughter and photo ops. Part two is happening this weekend on our little city escape. I will share them both with you next week! xo

Thank you so much for all the birthday greetings!!!

Much love, Jaycelle xoxo

Mac_Dy_J&B_eng-2419I discovered Lana del Rey just recently before our first engagement photo shoot. I instantaneously loved her song “Young and Beautiful”. It’s hauntingly beautiful. It’s mature and sexy. She quickly became my style peg for this first shoot.

All these years, me and my B took tons of photos together. Most are twee-tums, cutesy-tootsie photos and for our engagement shoot, I wanted something different. Something different from the “usual” us.

Mac_Dy_J&B_eng-2426(1)I’ve seen the world
Done it all
Had my cake now
Diamonds, brilliant
And Bel Air now
Hot summer nights, mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child

Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

He’s my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds

“Young And Beautiful” by Lana del Rey

Hooray Thursday: Big Birthday

Post Content

Having a birthday wish list was part of my little tradition since 2009 and most of them were fulfilled and granted (see the others here and here). I missed to write one last year, but having my B proposed to me was the greatest wish I could ever ask for, exactly on my birthday last year — I got engaged!

This year, another lifelong wish was granted — after a year-long of preparation, we already tied the knot and I’m already B’s missus. *swoon*

So writing my birthday wish list now does not only apply to me, but to my now-husband.

Warm Gray, White & Wood Living Room{ warm gray, white & wood living room }

Under the Stairs Storage{ make use of under the stairs as storage }

Tidy Kitchens{ tidy kitchen }

Entryway{ an entryway in our apartment }

Gallery Wall{ lots of lovely photos for our gallery wall }

Yes — most of my wish this year is to rearrange and redecorate our love nest! *grins*

I have more birthday wishes, so stay tuned for the Part 2 of my Hooray Thursday: Big Birthday Wish List.

Happy birthday to all the November celebrants!!! *kisses*
