As midnight neared, those looking to extend the celebration made their way from the main dining and fashion show area and back to the Coco Mar bar, where DJ Gringo was pumping out tunes and where the stage was set for the perfect after-party! And although the majority of event attendees disappeared off into the night (boo!), a group of more than 50, elected to stay, enjoy a few more drinks and dance the night away!

As the clock struck midnight and as te 27th of January became the 28th of January, I (your resident writer, editor and party girl) turned 29 years old – and thus the Fundación MIR Magical Splendor for Life After-Party became my unofficial Birthday party!

Celebrating with friends: Happy Birthday to me!
