Shout out to birthday queen Monique Samuels! Not only did The Real Housewives of Potomac mama look amazing on her big day, but she got all dressed up for a special cause. To ring in the new year, Monique hosted the live auction for Adoption Together's annual Taste in Potomac event on October 6, which helps the organization raise awareness and funding to find homes for children in foster care. This was the second time the mama has hosted the event in Potomac.
For the occasion, the birthday 'Wife dressed her eight-month baby bump in a one-shoulder purple dress embellished with a thin, sparkly gold belt at the waist. She accessorized her ensemble with matching sparkly gold heels and a sequin clutch. As for her glam, the RHOP socialite wore her hair sleek and straight and sported a pretty purple smokey eye with a pink pout. "It’s my birthday!!! 35 feels pretty darn good! Blessed to see another year," she captioned a cute video on Instagram.
Glow on, girl.
It appears Monique's B-day was also filled with a few surprises: "My husband got on stage and surprised me by having the audience sing Happy Birthday and giving me flowers and a beautiful cake," she wrote. Aw.
You sure do make 35 look fab, Monique!
