When I was younger, I used to wish everyday that I had friends in my life that I could call whenever I needed something. I always wanted a Blair Waldorf, or a Carrie Bradshaw, in my life. During my time in school, I always felt so insecure and sheltered, which limited me from going out and meeting new people. I’d go to a party with a few girls and immediately run to the back of the room, fearful of what people would think of me.
When I transferred to online school my junior year, I immediately started to gain more confidence. I started meeting new people, and all of a sudden realized how many incredible people had come into my life. My three best friends since childhood are still in my life, and are the only three people I know I could call if anything in the world happened. You don’t need a million best friends; you need one or two honest, trustworthy friends, and as many acquaintances as you wish. True friends are hard to come by. When you find them, never let them go.
I celebrated my 19th birthday with my closest friends this past weekend in Boston, and splurged on this new GUESS dress. Most of my friends are older than me, so ONEHOPE sent them champagne to drink, and me to photograph. I went to high school with a girl named Hannah, who offered to make me an unreal custom birthday cake which my boyfriend and I carefully drove down to Boston with. I highly suggest never traveling with a 60 pound cake.
Hannah is a dime, and made me a beautiful birthday cake in two weeks with the aesthetic I was aiming for. I wasn’t expecting the cake to even taste good because of how beautiful it was, but the cake was absolutely delicious. I love pumpkin and chocolate! Click her name to find more cakes from her, and DM her if you want a custom cake (for any occasion). She doesn’t disappoint.
Thank you to Hannah and my crew for surprising me with the craziest birthday party: I couldn’t be more blessed to have y’all in my life.
P.S. I highly suggest planning your own surprise party. That way, you can decide on the cake flavor.
