Girl Crush: Gingersnap

Happy Thursday!

I'm so glad it's Thursday and boy oh boy it's a big day for me- got an important thingamabobber at work that I really want to do well on. But pay no attention to the man behind the curtain to me and my nervousness, it's someone else's big day today.

Meet Gingersnap.

If you've read my blog before- you've seen her here and there-most notably referred to as "Miranda" but her brazen hair and biting 'tude gave her the alter ego name. I like to post about her. She's my disgustingly wonderful friend who I am so grateful to have in my life. And today is her 26th-mother$%#*ng birthday!

Now... I know that beauty comes from within but what's better than a beautiful girl with beautiful insides (does that sound disgusting to anyone else but me??). But since I'm officially making her my girl crush post- I have to find a way to blend some points with some more pictures to show why she deserves this honor.

Why do I love Miranda? Let me count the ways....

She's of the animated face type

Obviously, Miranda's "Julia Roberts-esque" smile is contagious but so are her other features- love the lashy eyelids with or without makeup.

She dresses down with ease

Seriously, from scarves to braids to sneakers to adorable country dresses - she knows how to rock the casual yet fervently fashionable look.

She dresses for a night out with a purpose

She's always been influenced by a little westside til 'ya die...

She enjoys different things

Can't keep this one down- from downtown clubs to climbing trees in Costa Rica- she loves to do new things and explore her surroundings more than most people I know.

She's frippin' easy on the eyes

Seriously Mir- you're this pretty?

♥And can we please discuss the hair...

Yup- her name is Miranda and she has red hair- how cute is that? But how utterly and simplistically beautiful is her natural red?

But above all that, she's such a great presence in my life. We have so much in common yet I learn from her ability to soak up life as it rises above most people I know. Plus- she actually tends to read my blog on the 'reg- and sometimes even leaves comments - what a doll!

Happy Birthday my MirMirFoSho!

Did I mention she's on a plane to Germany as we speak for Oktoberfest "work"... b*tch!

I hope you spend today with someone as wonderful as her!

(PS wish me luck!)

Happy Birthday to her! One of my best friends has gorgeous red hair, too. If I didnt love her Id be jealous. Ok, I am jealous.

Aww she's so pretty! And a fellow redhead! It looks like she totally embraces her color. I was silly and stupidly dyed my hair a loooooot a couple years ago, but now I've grown to like my natural color.
Happy birthday to your friend!

Let me count the ways you love Miranda's company - er, - wait a minute -you already did that: She's relaxed, fun to be with, almost as pretty as you, adventurous, fun to party with etc. etc.. No surprise at all that you would want to hang out together when you want a break from your business world.
