Last week was crazy! I had my graduation ceremony on Monday 21st and on Thursday 24th July I turned the big 21. It was a mix of emotions all week as I was quite sad to leave my uni town Huddersfield fully and also happy to move forward in the future and enjoy my 21st celebrations. The week was jam packed with lots of buffet food which has gained me a few pounds.
As a treat I designed my own cake from Slattery’s in Whitefield, Manchester who specialise in creating cakes for all occasions including birthday cakes and wedding cakes. I have been an avid fan of Slattery’s for years and I was incredibly impressed with how they turned my idea into a lovely cake. I chose to have a traditional jam sponge birthday cake and chocolate cupcakes. The cakes never fail to be absolute delish from here although (I honestly never want to see another piece of cake for a good while) I love cake but after continuously eating a slice a day for the past week has made me feel rather bloated.
For presents I received a Body Shop tea tree facial set which I will be reviewing soon, some owl earrings from my lovely boyfriend, chocolates and more beauty products. I also received a lump sum of money from parents which I am intending on using to pass my driving test. I also received money from relatives which I have already spent on perfume, a playsuit and a big faux fur vintage jacket which will be featuring in a fashion post soon.
I would like to thank everyone who sent me lovely messages last week, I had an amazing time but for now it’s back to my job search.
What are your memories of your 21st birthday?
