AN INTENTIONAL LIFE
embraces only the things that will add to the mission of significance.
I WAS INTENTIONAL
when choosing you to celebrate my 29th birthday.
Thank you for accepting my invite.
COVID-19 TESTS ARE MANDATORY
I have already talked to everyone individually, but this is a kind reminder that if you plan to join the birthday festivities a Covid-19 test is mandatory. Please schedule a test within a week of your travel to South Florida. Once you take your test please practice major social distancing or simply quarantine. This is not just about protecting ourselves, we must be diligent with protecting our loved ones we will see after my birthday weekend and for the holidays.
MY PROMISE TO YOU:
I will politely snatch any invite if you do not follow the safety guidelines above.
I will follow the same guidelines and lead by example.
The house will be sanitized daily with EPA-registered disinfectants to kill germs on all surfaces.
No one will enter the house that has not taken a Covid-19 test.
Anyone who has additional plans outside of our group will forfeit their right to stay in the house.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. I appreciate everyone's willingness to oblige to my efforts to ensure our safety.
ONE OF MY HAPPY PLACES
Kevin's Market is legit one of my favorite places to be. It's good energy with healthy foods. We will go here as soon as it opens and Kevin will be ready to welcome us. We'll come here dressed for the boat.
Be ready to take pictures. This is a pregame. Liq is welcomed.
My favorites: Mystic Breeze & Tropical Tease
All smoothies are $7, ginger shots are $2, acai bowls are $10. All items available are not outlined on the menu below. Special requests are permitted.
VIP Lifestyle Miami
MOOD: F THEM KIDS, RESPECTFULLY
The 65' Numarine will be provided to us by VIP Lifestyle Miami, Miami's prestigious concierge service. We will be equipped with a captain and can make special requests if needed. On board we can bring whatever we want.
If you are prone to motion sickness please take Dramamine prior to us boarding the yacht.
WE WILL BE WATCHING THE SUN SET :)
birthday wish list
I NORMALLY DON'T ASK FOR GIFTS, BUT Y'ALL KNOW I AIN'T GOT NO JOB LMAO
Of course, a gift is not required, but it would be greatly appreciated. Some gifts cost more than others, so I'm perfectly fine with some of you partnering up to get the more expensive gifts. Don't surprise me lol. I want what is on my wish list. If you don't want to get a gift on here, but still want to give, then give me money.
If you can't buy a gift, that's fine too. You blessing me with your presence is enough.
black af Photoshoot
I'm paying for the photoshoot. I can select 2 of my favorite photos from the shoot for him to edit. Any additional photos requested for him to edit will cost $50. We can not get the photos he does not edit. Everyone is welcomed to take additional single pictures or separate group photos. Please keep in mind that any additional photo for him to edit outside of the two I select will cost $50 (I'm not paying for that).
There is a week turn around for us to receive the edited photos.
I can not wait for the photoshoot! The pictures are inspiration photos, not my precise vision. I want establishing the photoshoot vision to be a collaborative effort. We will schedule a zoom meeting to solidify details. The meeting must happen between Nov 1 - Nov 5. The photographer's name is Kevin, to see more of his work click the button below.
Our dinner will be catered by OMG Caters. The owner is a family friend and has cooked for us before. His food is amazing and caters to all palates. This group has strict dietary restrictions, so the menu hasn't been finalized, but I am accommodating everyone.
The birthday dinner will be planned by DB KREATIVE EXPRESSIONS one of the best event planners for intimate gatherings in South Florida. The decor will be shades of nude with a pop of teal! To see some of their previous events click below.
There is no set color you need to wear. If you want to coordinate with the decor that is solely up to you. Just make sure you dress to break a neck.

If Candace does your makeup she will charge $45 for a classic look. Her price increases for highlighting, conturing, and glitter. Candace has agreed to wear a face covering while doing anyones make up. I will find additional options for makeup artist and share them with the group if Candace is not your preference.
Q: TK do we, can you, will there, can we?
A: Please read everything before you ask me anything lol. My goal is to enjoy myself and not feel like a trip planner. This is why I took the time to create this page and the itinerary.
Q: Do you need help with anything?
A: I always need help with something, so don't be afraid to ask even if it appears as if I have everything figured out.
