I don't often do lifestyle posts but as it was my birthday this week I thought I'd do something different and share it! I turned 21 on Wednesday and had such a lovely day! I was a bit dubious about whether or not to do this post as some people think posting pictures of birthday presents can be boastful or just showing off but I'm in no way posting this for that reason - I just wanted to share my day with you all! Plus I'm a bit nosey and love seeing what other people got up to on their birthdays.
Unfortunately my birthday always falls at a stressful time and this year I had my dissertation due two days after, an essay five days after, and two exams to revise for! So it felt so nice just to take the day off from revision and relax. Also, all my uni stress explains why I haven't been posting much recently. I have so much I want to write about at the moment but my exams are my priority and when I finish uni in two weeks time (eek!) I will have plenty of time to bum around and blog!
Anyway! So on the Sunday my parents drove up to Nottingham from Surrey for the day with my sister and we had an early birthday celebration! We went out to Zizzi for lunch.
They also dropped some presents off which I weren't allowed to open until my actual birthday, but they let me open this one in front of them. It is a gorgeous charm bracelet and they also got me a heart and 21 charm to go on it! I love it and thought it was such an original idea as my Mum said she wasn't a fan of the Pandora charm bracelets and thought this would be more sentimental. Plus I can buy any gold charm off the internet and get it soldered on so I'm looking forward to building up a collection!
Then the next day my friends & I went to Hooters for dinner for all you can eat chicken wings! Eating there was quite an experience and it was on my bucket list to do before I finish uni so glad that one's ticked off. It was gorgeous weather so we all sat in my friends garden with a drink after and they surprised me with this birthday Alpen bar with a candle in (very healthy)!
Then on Wednesday it was my birthday! I woke up to some lovely presents and cards, my Mum also made me twenty one cupcakes to share with my friends!

My boyfriend also bought me a necklace & earring set and this lovely Satsuma body oil from The Body Shop!
I had a fantastic birthday and felt very lucky! I will be back to doing beauty posts very very soon and can't wait to get back into blogging properly again once uni is finished so keep your eyes peeled!
