On March 5th, I celebrated my twenty-first birthday. To some that might not seem that old, but thinking about it right now - it's hard to believe! I'm almost finished my third year at university, only one year left ... and I'm 21. Time has flown!
I was very blessed this birthday. I received so many lovely messages and birthday wishes, and I spent it with all of the loves in my life.
My dad was very proud of himself (and we were all proud too), he made my favourite cake, you can find the recipe here. It is a chocolate cake, with a strawberry whipped cream filling, covered in whipped cream!
We had tea and cake, followed by dinner at a really nice restaurant near my house at school.
My favourite things!
Cards are probably one of my favourite things, especially when they have such nice memories and thoughts written in them. I have every card I have ever been given.
I displayed all of my beautiful cards on the wall with some blu-tack!
For my birthday, my sister gave me this gorgeous iPad mini case from Kate Spade.
I fell in love with it a few months ago, and it is now sold out on the Kate Spade website.
Luckily, I found it on Nordstrom, shipped it to my friends house is the US, and her dad brought it back for me <3 So happy!
I am also getting a gold watch when I finally make up my mind.
I'm almost 100% sure that I want this Marc Jacobs one... but I also like the Kate Spade ones, and I also love having the date on my watch.
I'm also pretty indecisive about things, so that's where I am right now.
I received so many lovely gifts and cards for my birthday! I felt like the luckiest girl to have all these amazing people, old and new, in my life.
Thank you to everyone who had contributed to these past twenty years of my life, even in the smallest way.
Heres to my twenty-first - and maybe a trip to the US for a legal drink soon!
