My 21st Birthday!


Yep, I turned the big 21 last week and I was lucky enough to be able to celebrate my birthday out in the sunny Caribbean! The cruise was my main present this year and it was totally amazing! I promise I'll finish the last 2 days and get them posted soon!


I was also lucky enough to have been baked the most gorgeous cake by Tony's little sister! Doesn't it look yummy! I wish I could have stuffed some of into my suitcase to bring it home!

When I did arrive home at the weekend I had a little celebration with my family too. I had a delicious chocolate cheesecake from English Cheesecake Company (my favourite - check them out they give you free cakes!) 


*nom nom nom*
After we'd eaten I got to open my presents! I got a little diamante 21 key ring to add to my car keys, a gorgeous Swarovski pen, a pair of diamond earrings, a gel skin for my Kindle and a beautiful Swarovski bracelet. I think I'll be getting a new phone too, hopefully soon because mines on it's way out!

Revision doesn't seem so bad when you're using a pretty pen!

You may spot a cute little nail art sticker on my thumb there! More about those coming soon :)


I absolutely love this skin for my Kindle, it goes everywhere with me and I've been carrying it around in a pretty ugly black case so it's nice to finally have it looking pretty. Plus the colourful design with all the books is so me! I'll be doing a mini review of GelSkins soon because I've used the company a few times and I'm always impressed!


This bracelet was from Tony and was a total surprise and coincidentally it pretty much matches the earrings my mum got for me! I just need an occasion to wear it for now :)

I didn't go out for my birthday this year, so it wasn't nearly as crazy as my last birthday where we ended up accidentally planting a car into a wall at 4am! (Don't worry no one was hurt!) I really enjoyed just having a chilled birthday and spending time with my family both here in the UK and out in the Caribbean.
