"I'm eighteen; I'm a princess; and I'm a virgin. You know what? At this point in my life, I might as well be a unicorn. Happy freaking birthday to me."
- Meg Cabot, Forever Princess
Turning eighteen is kind of a big deal from where I am from, it is when you become legally an adult - but not really.
It is the same thing as turning 21 in US, or latinas celebrating their Quinceañera at 15.
Because I want to be as a raw as possible on my blog I am going to share with you some personal events, and this is one of them.
If you are not interested of my personal life feel free to click out and read other articles such as travel or other categories, "Lifestyle" might not be your thing. But if you are curious and enjoy reading here, thank you for your time.
If your sweet 18 is coming soon or maybe you just want to have all birthdays special no matter the age, this might bring some inspiration.
I'm going to cover the preparations for the space, dress, food and other.
It might have not been a huge fancy Kardashian party with 250 invites, fireworks and Drake singing but it was still very precious.
It was one of my happiest years and felt like my life was all figured out.
This post may contain a lot of pictures of the night but every each of them makes me happy so I’ll leave them here to share with the world.
I planned my birthday party months before the event. Even though I was born on the 19th of September I celebrated it on the 21st so it was on a friday night.
The first thing to do was to find the perfect place to attend it, I was a dancer all my life and was surrounded with other dancers, so my first issue was finding a big enough dancefloor.
After checking out many restaurants and fancy places, I found the perfect one, near my town, at Baile Felix, the restaurant is called Art Club.
What I liked about it was that the place was more of a amphitheater for the tables and the dance floor was huge. Luckily the place was free on the day I wanted to rent it because I did pay for it in early June.
I found a great DJ to entertain us with all his cool mixes and great songs;
And one of the best photographers in town: Gabriel Dan (https://www.facebook.com/PhotolinePhotography/?pnref=lhc).
Of course I had to have a chocolate fountain. Because..life is too short to not have one at one of your parties.
This party wasn’t possible without my parents support and I owe them the world.
All my friends, classmates and dance team was there, and it was magical. I was blessed to have every each of them.
Special gift from my dance team: Big pink teddy bear, which later I named Hime (means Princess in japanese)

And as a grand finale and one of the most important part, the birthday cake.
I had a total of 55 invites and I love each and every one of them.
