But secretly we can all agree I’m probably more like a 15 year old, or at least that’s the way I feel sometimes 🙂 I decided to throw a party so that I could get everyone I love into one place to spend some quality time with them all. I was so grateful that there are friends here from years ago, my mom flew in, my best friend from New York came, along with some new people that have come into my life!

I managed to have friends from high school all the way to the newer people that I have met recently in LA.

My boyfriend and I decided it would be really fun to to get a photobooth, which everyone took advantage of greatly. It was SO much fun!

The big surprise of the night was of a movie showing all my photos with friends, my modeling pics, yoga, and more. Below is him sitting with most of the lovely ladies at the party! Lucky guy!

We both live in LA now which is pretty cool. It’s amazing where life takes you and the people you meet along the way.

I chose not to go along the vegan route because it’s not necessarily how everyone else in my life eats, so we had beautiful fresh food that consisted of a menu I put together. there was this huge fish (no idea what it was because I don’t know my fish as I don’t it it), as well some meat dishes, cheeses, pizza, salads, grilled veggies and more. Yum!

Dancing the night away!

I know people probably think I’m pretty serious when they see my youtube vids or on Insta, but I’m a pretty fun outgoing chick (as seen below haha).

My amazing friends, Julia and Shayna.

Overall, what an amazing birthday. I am so grateful to have the people in my life that I do. One of the best things about this birthday is all the exciting projects I have coming up and knowing that 28 is going to a spectacular year. I wanted to thank YOU all for keeping me inspired to share my stories, everything I learn, and being able to help so many of you. It has made me extraordinarily blessed and I will always be grateful for this.

With Love, N
