officially now 21

Hello my lovely dears !

Again, sorry for the lack of updates, I've had a very busy past few weeks what with it having been my 21st birthday and also my boyfriend's the following week ! Unfortunately I didn't manage to get my beloved dress from my previous posts from Nasty Gal as when I went to order it, it said SOLD! As you can imagine I was hugely disappointed as I'd had my heart set on it. Fear not I found a wonderful replacement in this little number from Topshop, that I purchased in the Oxford Circus branch in London.

I was lucky enough to receive not only one, but two gifts from Tiffany's for my birthday. The 'return to Tiffany's heart tag charm bracelet' and a Tiffany's heart key pendant. It was so great to receive such classic presents as I didn't previously have any special pieces of jewellery before and it made me feel pretty special! I also received a gorgeous angel wing's necklace from Thomas Sabo from my best friend which she informed me signified hope and light, I will definitely be thinking of her and our great friendship when I wear it!

These are the two Tiffany's items below in case you wanted to have a peek!

excuse the scar, I burned myself on a baking tray like a fool!

I had a great week of celebrations, starting with a meal with my bestest friends at the Italian restaurant, Bibi's where we all ate, drank and were merry, and enjoyed some entertainment from an Abba tribute act (hilarious i might add). The following day I went to a Japanese restaurant called Little Tokyo's in town with my mum, stepdad, auntie and my boyfriend. The food was amazing as always, I love a good bento box. Then the following night I had drinks and a buffet at my house along with my amazing birthday cupcakes that I made with my mum before heading out into Leeds for a night out with my friends, from which most of the pictures below are from. After that I spent the weekend at my dad's in Wilmslow and had a great time over there, I feel that this truly was a special birthday.

The princess cupcakes that me and my mum made ourselves completely from scratch !

Oh and a tip for the girls, I used the Nadine eyelashes from the Girls Aloud collection for Eyelure which I must say are FANTASTIC. I received so many compliments about them, and the best one was that they looked so natural. A definite reccommended product !

So now I feel that I've reached the all important age. An adult. A decision maker for real this time. At this moment it only stands to be just over a month before I move away to Madrid for 9 months for my year abroad for universirty. I'm feeling somewhat unprepared and feel I still have a lot to do.. one being checking out what shops there are for me to spend my hard-earned money in whilst I'm there !

I'll leave you with some pictures from my birthday, next post following soon!
