A lil peak inside my birthday…
The night before my BD we headed to my parent’s for a delicious, home-cooked meal ( & OMFG! Julie baked the most insane, organic mini cupcakes! ). We celebrated with my family, cousins, & Pixy.
On my actual birthday, I did whatever the hell I wanted. It started with an intense Pilates Proformer class with my girlfriend, who set up the studio with chocolate stuffed raspberries, strawberries, orchids, & a candle. Such a sweet surprise!
After our workout we headed over to Whole Foods. I have a severe addiction to their ‘Sunshine Kale Salad’ & the ‘California Quinoa.’ Annnnnd our local WF serves champagne…so what’s a birthday girl to do?
Duh. Enjoy a glass.
…along with a few added splashes of Synergy’s Kombucha ( the ‘Maqui Berry Mint is to die for ). Champs + Kombucha= the best thing ever.
A workout & champagne before 3 pm?
After that my God mom set up a lovely table of the most thoughtful goodies & I hung out with the most gorgeous girl in the world ( Pixy ) while blogging. Later that night Michael & I went to dinner at the most amazing restaurant, Mister A’s ( if you’re ever in San Diego, try it & thank me later ).
Seriously the food was spot on. I started with their organic vegetable salad full of purple cauliflower, lettuce, tomatoes, & broccolini. The salad was dressed in organic ( yes, organic ) dressing! So delish. And then for the entrée I had the vegetarian medley: pesto risotto, sliced zuccini with fresh marinara sauce, & a beet salad. For cocktails: a basil, cucumber gin-infused martini.
Then we went home & watched Mary Poppins…
Ya, like the “spoonful of sugar” Mary Poppins.
Team normal…? IDK.
Anyway, my birthday was relaxing & beautiful! Thanks to everyone who made it special. Enjoy the pics! xx.L
P.S. Another Kombucha cocktail can be found here. And a big thanks to iTAN for my BD spray tan! X.

Glad you had a great day, girl! But…SAY WHAT? Is that a new flavor of kombucha? I’m addicted to the Grape Divine flavor (just drank one about an hour ago), but I’ve never seen that flavor before! It sounds amazing! I’ve been drinking the Synergy line for years. How I have not seen that flavor is truly baffling me right now. I’m in Whole Foods practically every day.
HAPPY BDAY LOVER!!! Glad it was great <3 your family rocks!
Hey Lauryn, happy belated!
Love your blog and I’ve been reading it for a while now! I was wondering if you could share some other blogs you really like or ones similar to yours! Let me know if it’s easier for me to send you an email 🙂 xx
Love from Mass
Is the Whole Foods salad in their salad bar or come prepackaged? Looks delicious!
That kombucha flavor sounds amazing! Added in champagne- bonus points. Glad you had a wonderful birthday!
It sound like you had a perfect birthday!
The wrapped cake in your shots looks amazing! And champagne with kombucha is clearly something I need to try!
Thanks Bethan! The champagne and Kombucha is amazing :-)! You’ll love it!!!
Aww it sounds and looks like you had an amazing birthday! I had mine recently too, and love that you can do whatever the hell you want to for the day 😀
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I have a HUGE obsession with Whole Foods Raw Kale Salad (kale,pine nuts, olive oil, dried cranberries) but now need to try the Sunshine Salad sounds amazing! Thank you for sharing your special day 🙂 Love + Shine CourtStar
The table with wrapped presents, flowers, and balloons looks very enticing, you must have a wonderful Godmom! Happy birthday, Lauryn, I’m glad you were able to spend it the way you wanted!
