21st Birthday Meal

I think I mentioned before that it’s going to be my 21st birthday on Thursday (the day after tomorrow, yay!!), so this last weekend we decided to go out for a meal with my family: my mum, dad, Beth, Ben and grandparents on both sides. In the morning Ben and I had been up to Newcastle to move some things up there, and we met up with Ben’s parents who were visiting Ben’s sister there for lunch. So I got two meals out on Saturday! When we came home, we were greeted by the sight above: balloons and cupcakes!! I might have mentioned before but my dad owns a bakery so he’d stayed late one evening and made these for me, they’re so pretty =)
jacket: forever 21
top: new look
skirt: H&M
tights: new look
shoes: new look
This is the outfit I wore for my meal. Again I went for more autumnal colours, because I just love them at the moment =D And of course it was an opportunity to wear heels, so I did. You can also see my awesome accessory of a wrist splint…it’s getting super annoying now, keeping me awake and stopping me from typing properly, plus it still hurts! The hospital couldn’t find my x rays when I had to ring them back so we still don’t know if it’s broken, but the swelling, bruising and pain kind of suggests it is =( Anyway, I also took some real accessory pictures this time, see below.
So we have here my dragonfly necklace which was my 18th birthday present from Ben and I’ve worn it everyday since (3 years since I was 18, eek!!). And my Tiffany’s charm bracelet that was an 18th present from my parents, complete with a butterfly (coz they’re pretttty), suitcase (because I like travelling) and a book with a bookworm (because that’s me!).
Pictures from the actual meal, including my first present: Harry Potter puppet pals!! Created lovingly by my sister =D Then finally back home with the ‘Happy Birthday’ singing and candle blowing out!
I’ll have two more ‘birthday’ outfits to come haha =D One on my actual birthday on Thursday, then the one for going out in Newcastle with my friends on Saturday, so look out for those coming up, and more Greece posts to come still =D

    Yay, birthday! I always assume you’re older, you seem more mature for your age. Bummer about your wrist still, I hope you heal up soon!
