This is the post I was telling you guys about, all about my 21st birthday.
I wanted everything to be low-key - no clubbing or massive parties, I've just been working too hard lately with finishing off my uni work, I just wanted to chillax.
I had plans with my friends on my actual birthday, so the day before my family threw me a pink tea-party!
The table was full of my favourite nibble-y food, from sushi to pizza!
And everything was pink - the tablecloth, cups, balloons, flowers, and my Mam even produced a lovely bottle of pink champagne!
NOM NOM NOM!
LOVE the home-made messages on the balloons!
They surprised me with a proper birthday cake - a GIANT cupcake!
(Mam originally had spelled 'Happy Birthday' as 'Happ Birtday' which made me laugh)
Just before blowing out the candles.
I wished for a year full of dresses marked down from their original retail price!
(Darn it, now it won't come true?)
On my actual birthday, I got up at the crack of dawn to open my presents, and I've put together a little video so you can see everything I got.
My family and friends were so generous!
Then I went out with my friends Sam and Hattie (who got me the kawaii lunchbox stuffed with extras!) to Stateside Diner in Newcastle for alcoholic milkshakes.
And on the night-time I went out for tapas with my Mam, Dad, sister and my Uncle Paul (who got me the Vivienne Westwood perfume) and it was delicious.
It was their first time having proper Spanish food and I KNEW they'd love it.
Me and my sister got a bit giggly on the Sangria.
This is what I wore to the resteraunt:
DRESS: River Island sale, £10.
NECKLACE: Lady Luck Rules OK sale, £3.
EARRINGS: Can't remember.
FLOWER: New Look, £4.
CLUTCH: Vivienne Westwood, £Birthday Present.
TIGHTS: Asda, £3.
SHOES: Office, £40.
POINT OF FASHION: Mediterranean.
(I'm part-Italian, so I think this look really suits my dark features?)
Right, so now you're all up-to-date!
Except I am celebrating Carla's 21st: The Sequel with Silly Old Daniel next week, because he couldn't fit my birthday around his heaving social schedule. The diva!
Regular readers will recognise Daniel as he's one of my best friends.
But he also has a BRILLIANT blog which is a mix of celebrity, music, personal and general flamboyance.
Be sure to check it out, I think he's hysterical! :)
PS: Oh, and passing on the generosity to you guys - the girlies over at BuyItRightThere.co.uk who sell Ugg boots have given me a voucher code to pass on.
