Spring has sprung and slowly I am shedding off my bulky clothes. Friday our usual date night, I decided to wear some sexy blue jeans and a shirt that buttoned down nicely to show off, eh well a little cleavage. The Epicurean Man ( who by the way is a few years younger than I) proceeded to tell me “Naima can you please dress your age, you have to now dress like a forty year old Mom”. In that moment I gave him the look of DEATH as I rattled on about all the female friend’s who are forty plus Mother’s, he would never say to ” dress like a forty year old”. I mean really I am turning forty not a geriatric. Some-one needs to tell The Epicurean Man that forty is the new thirty lol.
Anyway, to make me feel better I have decided to throw myself a huge birthday bash . Since I am mad about anything Latin it will be a Havana Night’s themed bacchanalia. The whole works, a fabulous Cuban/salsa band ,Son de Brooklyn will be performing live, and there will be a cigar lounge with a cigar roller, mojitos, rum and cokes flowing all night long… 50 close friends gathered at my home to help me celebrate this momentous milestone. Gosh Taureans are quite dramatic, aren’t we haha
This weekend to get the ball rolling, The Epicurean Man and I ventured into Soho to one of our favorite spots Ideaya for mojito’s and empanadas and the un-expected key lime pie…yummy. It shall be an interesting next few weeks , tomorrow my partner Tamara and I take salsa lessons..stay tune .
