21st Birthday

On the 24th October, I turned 21. I find that really hard to believe, I’m still that ten year old girl in her high trainers with velvet camel trousers on, fashionista or what?

In the morning, I woke up at Dan’s house (our shower at home is crap, and every birthday princess needs a decent shower on her birthday) and opened my pressies from him with tea in bed! He absolutely spoiled me, and he made my birthday so incredible special. This gorgeous HOMEMADE box is easily one of my favourite presents – isn’t it just beautiful? I’m so lucky!

My parents and sister arrived at around midday, we cracked open the Prosecco and opened a few more presents. My parents have bought me and Dan a trip to Rome in December, and I couldn’t be more grateful. I’m so excited to go and explore the city. If anyone has any recommendations, PLEASE let me know! I was also lucky to receive ‘Reveal’ by Calvin Klein. I got a taster of this perfume in Cosmopolitan, and hadn’t been able to stop thinking about it since. Coincidentally my parents had already got it for me. It smells incredible, you should definitely head for a sniff next time you are in boots!

My house girls had decorated my room and the living room overnight too! It was so gorgeous and lovely. They got me a Frozen umbrella (I now want it to rain ALL the time so I can use it!) and a Frozen calendar for next year which I am SOO excited to use. They also got me a beautiful october pandora ring with all of the girls! It is so beautiful, very grateful to have such lovely friends at uni. 

We went to Pinocchio’s in Canterbury (post here) for lunch and I cannot even tell you how much I love this place. It is honestly delicious! Some of the best Italian food ever!

My friends, Georgia from Mapped Out, and Candela, arrived and we went for our first drink of the day at the Students union whilst my parents and Dan did their own thing. Candela and Georgia made me the most incredible 'pink box' and you can see my absolutely massive princess chalice which was included, thank you so much girls! Me and mum picked my cousin Zoe up from the station and the house was complete. It was so nice to see her as I haven't properly been able to catch up with her in ages, and she brought me such a stunning necklace from Topshop, thank you Zoe!

Then it was time to get ready!

I had decided on a Disney themed party. I may be 21 now but who doesn't want to be a princess for the night?

My mum and Granny had made my beautiful outfit, and Georgia did my hair and makeup. 

We had a Mrs Potato Head, a Stitch, an Aristocat, a Minnie Mouse, a Flynn Rider, a Snow White, a Cinderella and a Peter Pan as well as lots of other disney favourites. Everyone made such an effort and I felt so touched!

I had the most incredible 21st birthday. I have the best boyfriend, family and friends! Thank you to all of those who made my birthday so amazing and special. I feel so lucky. On Sunday I had another celebration with my grandparents, so keep your eyes peeled to read about our Afternoon Tea at home!
