Celebrating My 26th Birthday!


(Jeans – Exact, Top – Exact, Boots – Similar, Ring – Exact)

UPDATE: Unfortunately there was a major problem with the server that my blog runs off of today and it meant that I have lost all of my content from Monday, including my birthday post. I don’t remember every single thing that I wrote in the blog post and obviously the lovely comments that you left me are missing as well. I just wanted to say thank you for bearing with me today and for those of you who emailed me to tell me my site was down too. I appreciate all of the previous birthday wishes that you gave me and even though they are no longer on this post, they are still in my mind. You are welcome to leave the comment again if you wish though!


I had the best birthday ever yesterday! It was one of the nicest I have had. I went for a lunch time meal with my mum, brother and Adam at one of my favourite restaurants, The Real Italian Pizza Company. I go there often as I’m sure you already know since they make the best pizza with no cheese, but yesterday they were so kind to me! I didn’t know that the staff had planned a surprise with a chocolate cake and candle and sang happy birthday to me. It was so sweet of them and it just made my day! That’s the cake just below by the way! After the meal, we shot these outfit photos and of course it started to rain, like it does every single year on my birthday, without fail.

For my outfit, I chose something comfortable and casual, opting for my Citizens of Humanity Rocket skinny jeans in Axel which I am absolutely in love with. The rise is perfect, they are super skinny all over and so stretchy. They are now my favourite black jeans that I own and you will definitely be seeing these a lot more! I paired the jeans with my French Connection baseball style top which Adam got me as a present, my Zara black ankle booties and also a Butler & Wilson eye ring that I purchased for myself as a present. I also had my beautiful Forever Friends balloon from Adam too! It’s so pretty!

After that, I went home and had my actual birthday cake and then headed out to spend the evening at the Botanical Gardens park to feed the squirrels and pigeons. That’s one of my favourite things to do as it relaxes me so much. The weather was nice for the evening too, so the photos that we took came out really well. You will be seeing those soon. Once the sun had set, we came back home and I watched Tinkerbell on my laptop as that’s one of my favourite movies! So all in all, I had a wonderful day and I can’t thank you enough for taking the time out of your day to wish me happy birthday on my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google + and via email. It’s so kind of you! Let me know what you think of this post and you can see photos of my presents below too!

Here are my lovely presents that I got too. I got the Cambridge Satchel Mini in Black Glitter from Adam. We went to the boutique in London to pick one up and it was actually in the sale for half price so it meant I could get other gifts too! Like the top that I am wearing, which also happened to be in the sale for only £11.50 and then I got the Butler & Wilson fish necklace and lips ring. I love them all! As a surprise with the balloon too, I also got the little Blue Nose Bears; the lamb, triceratops, axolotl and poodle. I also bought myself two Pixi lip balms and a Dr. Weils for Origins serum (I will be showing you these products soon). From Adam’s mum I got the glitter nail polish, shower gel and adorable little doggy purse. I can’t show the other gifts though since I got money and I’m saving up for something special! I’m sure lots of fashion bloggers would love them too! Hint, it’s boots!
