My lover took me to a lovely fancy restaurant for my big day. I got all dressed up in a black and white dress, opaque black tights, and dark red pointy low heels. With an hour of makeup and a spritz of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, I was ready to go. 🙂
I kept my eye makeup neutral but my lashes long, and I used a more springy orange blush by NYX. On the lips, I used a recent favorite of mine: Marc Jacobs lip creme in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. I even got a compliment on my lips when we went to a bookstore after our date!
My sober face. 🙂
I did not feel comfortable taking my phone out at the restaurant to snap pictures of our plates. They were beautiful, though! I had the grilled swordfish in a green tea honey glaze with bok choy and butternut squash orzo, and for dessert I had a green tea honey creme brûlée. Everything was amazing. The swordfish, which I had never had before, was so sweet and perfectly cooked. Lover had a steak and sorbet and the bill. 😉
I felt positively glowing the whole time. I’m so proud of myself for my six months, the clarity I have found, the stability I have created. And I have such amazing support.
