Last week it was my birthday, and it’s been a bit of a different one this year. I turned 27 and although that doesn’t sound particularly old this year I definitely feel it. Suddenly it was the week of my birthday and I hadn’t even thought about what I wanted for it from my parents, and I spent some of the week away with work so it flew by even faster!
I started the day with a favourite breakfast of mine – chia seeds, almond milk, greek yogurt, fruit and a good dollop of peanut butter. It was lush!
I went into work and was met with this monstrous cake – who on earth can turn down what is essentially a giant triple chocolate cupcake. It got me through my 11am slump and my 3pm slump – normally I’m a fan of the ‘sugar is the devil’ saying but birthdays mean anything goes!
As I mentioned before there has been so much going on this week, one major thing that has happened is that I have finally bought my own house! I am massively scared but also excited, I can’t wait to own my own home, decorate it and essentially grow up!
As far as presents go, I had a gorgeous Champneys set from my aunty which was a lovely surprise, I’ve been working my way through my stash for quite a while and haven’t bought any bath products so this will be a lovely treat now that all of my budget will be going on house bills and items!
My mum has also been buying me a few things for the house, we are both fans of the citrus scent so she has got me a citrus candle to put in my kitchen, they’re great for getting rid of cooking smells and i can’t wait to get more of these to put everywhere all over the house!
She also picked these up from Home Sense, 3 beautiful silver bottles that will be going in my new bathroom! It’s a very plain white bathroom with a black tiled floor so it needs a bit of sparkle!
I went out to watch the rugby with a few friends (M included in the middle!)
There were a lot of shots to celebrate me buying a house, in fact the next day I did begin to question if it was even real!
As a birthday celebration I took a day off work and went for afternoon tea with my mum, it was absolutely amazing and I can’t rave about it enough. There will be a full post on this soon!
So there was my 27th birthday!
It was short and sweet and I definitely feel like this year is much more grown up. I’m super excited about having a house and although it is pretty small it will be all my own, so any blogs or website you read with interior design ideas please send them my way – I will be writing a wishlist post in future for the design ideas I would love to incorporate into my house.
