21 today!

I am 21 today! 
Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday & everyone who made my day so special.
These are a few of the things I was lucky enough to be given...
(And I should mention they're all taken on my brand new Canon 500D! Thanks mum & dad!)

This bracelet is from my grandparents. It's my great-great-grandmother's - from 1885! 1885! - which my grandma had restored for me. It really means a lot to me to have something with so much family history.

This is a choker & was a present from my aunty. Last year she gave me a vintage ball gown and the necklace goes with it. The stones are so beautiful!

This was part of an insanely awesome present from my four best friends. Along with this were a pair of earrings, a 'High Tea' cookbook, a really cool Sportsgirl beaded bag, and a kind of cut-out mobile (which I will try and remember to take a photo of once I hang it!). I love it & they picked out such perfect things for me, they are amazing!

Time for bed now, I have been rather spoiled today and am quite exhausted!



  1. Such awesome gifts! You definitely deserve them. I hope you had a wonderful birthday!
