The beginning of 2016 has been non-stop celebrations and it all started with my fabulous SLAYCATION: my thirty-fifth birthday vacation in Aspen, CO! En route to Aspen, we ran into my friend Ne-Yo at the airport. It was a pleasant surprise since we used to work together and I hadn’t seen him in a while. My friends and I stayed at the St. Regis Aspen and their service was absolutely stellar! From the moment we stepped off the plane we were greeted by their attendants, their Escalade car service was always available to take us where we needed to go, and the fireplaces in our hotel rooms were quaint and cozy. For my birthday toast we experienced the “Champagne Sabering” – a St. Regis tradition. Not to mention, the outdoor bonfire with s’mores was delicious! We had my birthday dinner at the chef of Nobu’s other restaurant, Matsuhisa and Kenny G was there! He said “now Arian if you post this picture hashtag it Ebony & Ivory”….lol.

We skied at the famous Aspen Snowmass and I love to ski, so I thoroughly enjoyed skiing in the mountains. Overall, the atmosphere and ambiance provided a perfect winter luxury vacation! The biggest joy of all was spending the trip with family and friends, which was priceless! I will have a full video for you all to view soon, I made sure to capture the moments. Please remember despite anything that may be going on in your life, there is always a reason to celebrate!

Love Always,
