Christmas 2015/My 30th Birthday

Hello Everyone!


Happy New Year! For those that celebrate, I hope that you had a wondeful holiday season!! My intention was to get this post up the day after my birthday, but honestly I was just too tired from the day before and then the New Year was fast approaching! I'm just get around to blogging and posting! I can honestly say that I had an AMAZING birthday!! It was my milestone birthday since I turned 30 on Christmas. Those who are close to me made my birthday very special. It was a day that I will always cherish and remember.



An early Christmas gift from my mama (She got me the items in the next  picture below as well). If you follow me on instagram, you know that I love to take baths and relax. Life can be so hectic and stressful sometimes and this year I'm going to work on pampering myself more.



Does anyone else have an obsession to Victoria's Secret makeup bags? lol



I got this a birthday gift for myself, but I had to quickly return it to Victoria' s Secret. Come to find out if you have an allergy to nuts, you possibly could be hypersensitive to Shea butter. Well I learned this hard way! I used this on my birthday and I had an allergic reaction to the point my skin felt like it was on fire and my joints ached! I had to take another shower to wash all the shea off! I'm glad Benadryl and Tylenol help reduce my pain and calm my symptoms. I'm unsure why I haf an allergic reaction to these products, but I think it was due the the products being primary made with Shea Butter. It's strange because I have other products that contain Shea Butter and I'm fine. If you have allergies please be careful with shea butter products!



Birthday Candles!




My mama made one of my favorite meals for my birthday: Pot Roast, Mac and Cheese, Peas, Potatoes, and Rice A Roni




My homemade birthday cake. Compliments again by my mama lol

    1. Thanks Margo! I'm thought it was so important to warn people! It's funny because I've used products containing shea butter, but this is the first time I used shea by itself.

  12. Happy Birthday! Glad you had a lovely day, I would never had thought that Shea Butter would have caused an allergic reaction. At least that was sorted out with medication. Congrats on being 30 xx

    1. Thanks Denise! I would've never thought that either! I felt so bad after I used those shea products! I'm glad I was able to feel better once I took Benadryl and Tylenol!

  13. Eek! Thanks for the heads up on Shea Butter, we suspect our little one is allergic to nuts so that's a good info to know. But that aside, you got some lovely gifts, Pilar and welcome to the big 3-0 club! xx

    1. Thanks Shireen! You're welocme! I still can't believe that I had an allergic reaction to shea products! All this time I've used products containing shea butter and I never had an issue until now! Like I mentioned I guess it's due the products being primarily shea that caused me to have an allergic reaction! I think I remember reading one of your posts when you thought your son had a nut allergy. I really love all the gifts!
