Those of you who are regular followers of my blog, will be well aware that my 21st birthday was actually a good six months ago. In contemplating this I have therefore realised that I only have six months left until I turn 22…which is my scary age. Trust me kids, one day you are categorised as a “mid-teen” and the next minute you are ticking the “mid-twenties box. Still with the same confusion and misdirection as the sixteen year old you knew, yet expected to make “grown-up decisions.” Something I am not very good at!
Anyways off topic. So yes, my birthday was rather a long time ago, however I have not yet posted a proper description with glamorous photos as I usually do. Seen as my 21st was truly the most special birthday I have ever, and probably will ever have, it only seems appropriate to show off a little!
My Birthday lasted a whole week, with one of my best friends flying in from abroad on the Monday morning with celebrations not beginning until Saturday. My excitement first kicked off after a long work shift, when I arrived home in the early hours of the morning to find the living room partially decorated by my lovely mum, who was tucked up asleep upstairs. I found balloons, champagne, flowers and fairy lights all lit as I walked through the door. It was the best return home from work a girl could have asked for!
The following morning, my now wide awake mum, said she had another surprise for me and mysteriously drove me to a little cottage the other side of town. We knocked on the door and I was introduced to a lovely lady called Jennie, whilst still extremely confused over who this lady was and why I was at her house. Walking into the kitchen, it was a maze of rolling pins, cake tins, icing sugar and boxes. It soon became clear to me that this lady had made me a cake! However the cake that was revealed was nothing like I was expecting. This really was the most special part of my birthday! Isn’t it beautiful!?!
I spent ages looking for the perfect dress for my 21st. I just felt like it was a really big deal and better than my 18th as this was going to be the last special birthday until i turned 30. Which I probably won’t really want to celebrate! Therefore the dress had to be different, and not something I would wear on a usual night out. After three months of looking I had given up hope, simply finding dull, dark on trend winter dresses in all of the high streets and webpages. However in my final shop after a miserable Sunday afternoon of giving up hope, I had finally found it! Tucked away on the sales rack in UK store Republic (which is now USC for those English girls…) and only £30.00 down from £75.00.
It was sparkly, one of a kind and looked amazing with heels. I felt wonderful in it! Following the initial amazing surprises, I had a group of my favourite girls come around for champagne, followed by a meal out at a restaurant and then a night out in the clubs. It was a magical week and I was completely spoilt and so grateful for it!
Have you ever had a birthday that was truly magical?! Let me know I’d love to hear about it!
Lots of Love
