Happy Birthday Keisha! I was happy to be asked to guest blog to help celebrate your birthday! What a great idea to showcase your favorite things. The favorite thing I was given was polka dots which just so happens to be one of my favorite things as well. Polka dots are so versatile and will never go out of style.
For the birthday girl Keisha loves sweets, I'll start with polka dots cakes and cupcakes.

However, I wouldn't suggest wearing the polka dot dress, shoes and handbags together. Too much of a good thing is sometimes Too Much!!

I hope you have a Happy Birthday and thanks for including me in on all the fun!  Many blessings my friend!
