Birthday part 3!

Posted on: 08 November 2009

Right this is the final post about my birthday week! On my actual birthday, I spent the daytime with my mom, grandmother and sister. It was a lovely day, very chilled and relaxed...
Long sleeved tee (Heattech by Uniqlo) Lace crop top, skirt, belt and shoes (Topshop)
On the evening I went for a meal with friends who came bearing gifts! It was the funniest thing because they had not told one another what they had bought me. As I opened the gifts, they realised that they had all gone with the same theme and it was hilarious! Check it out!
I now have so many cupcake storage boxes, candles, ornaments and kits that it makes me giggle. Right now, I'm using the big cupcake as a jewellery box! So pretty, I love them all!

After we went for a drink at the pub where I succumbed to my old age and chose to have a nice Baileys Latte!I saw Thursday as an extension to my birthday and as it was Bonfire Night we went to uni to celebrate. Every year the uni puts on a spectacular free fireworks display.
Despite the rain, my classmates and I spent the night watching the fireworks, getting wet and having a thoroughly good time!
So that's it for one year! I feel so lucky to have had such a wonderful birthday this year. A big thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes. You're all amazing and thank you so much for still coming back to read my random posts!

>>A very quick update to tell you all that should you be in London Town, get yourself to the SHOWStudio exhibition as there is now one live shoot per week until the end of the exhibition. Last week Natalia Vodianova was in for a special two day shoot and I'm told that there are lots more special events happening too...

So on Thursday from 10am-8pm there is a a shoot for a new fanzine 'Re-Bel' photographed by Bella Howard (has done shoots for iD, Dazed and Nylon to name a few) and styled by Rasharn Agyemang. Check out her blog here and if you're not in London, check out the live Streaming from 12pm!

  1. Hey sweetie, thanks for comment you left on my blog :) it'd be so lovely to meet you if you could come to the meet-up! KB from 'I want you to know' is helping me organise things as she said you're the main person she'd love to meet as well! It's definitley happening, even if we can't get some big glamourous event together in time... we'll just take over a pub and be all rock & roll!

    Sounds like your birthday this year was so much fun! All the cupcake prezzies made me giggle :)

  6. Looks like a great celebration, it's given me some ideas for my 23rd (aaaaaaah) next year. So cool that your friends know you so well and got such great presents. I should get a cupcake recipe book, it'd definitely save me some money after the amount i've been buying (there should be some pics at some point this week). Hope Uni is ok, and have a great week!

  27. The cupcakes are so cuuuuttttttteeeee!! How funny that they all went with the same idea! Your fireworks pictures are spectacular and as for my carboot, it is just ridiculous - you can barely fit anything in there! It makes for a VERY uncomfortable journey to leeds festival haha :) x

  51. Free fireworks?! That is so cool. I've glad you got to see a spectacular light show for your birthday. And I think the best part about any birthday is spending it with your family :)

    I can't believe your friends ended up getting you similar gifts. That's really funny and cute. The cupcakes look delicious even though they're fake.
