I wanted to go into my birthday this year with an open mind and an open heart. I found out that this is the best way to approach anything. Thats how I went forward with my LA trip and it turned out to be the best one.
Turning 20 didn't really hit me till a few days before. The though of going into a new decade of my life did frighten me a tad but again, you just have to be just chill about it. Think of it this way, you made it to 20. Or the more depressing way... You're half way to 40 already.
I think my mind was mentally ready to enter 20, having made blogging and youtube my career path, it has made me grow in so many ways that I wasn't expecting. It's bought a side out of me that's like 'Oh yeah! I can totally do this and great!'. My body however, is still in a 14 year olds stage and I have finally come to the term that I'm not going to grow anymore, but thats ok. I'm at a stage in my life where I feel comfortable and know how to love my body. Just can't believe it took me this long to do so. I think the main part is that I have a partner who also loves my body and appreciates it and doesn't want me to change or fix something I don't need to as I grow older.
Talking about Oliver, he has done super well with my presents this year. A birthday haul video will definitely follow and I might even do a blog post if I have the time! He got me my dream ring from The Great Frog london (featured in photo 1), the WANG X H&M sweater, perfume and lipstick from Lipstick Queen! I couldn't of been more happier. This year has totally been the year where I had received the most presents ever and that everything really worked out. I surrounded myself with the most loveliest of people and the best company I could ever ask for.
I first went to SKETCH london, and oh my golly gosh! It was magical! You were just transported into a whole different world that I never knew existed in London! Me & my friend went for a quick afternoon tea then I had to dash over to a shoot with Bryant Lee! You can view the photos in my previous post! It was so lovely shooting with Bryant and I also met Zoe! They were so lovely I had to invite them to my dinner in the evening. Quickly after that, a stop by my tattoo studio for a little painful treat! I opted for a bumblebee and a 'cross-fingered' hand. I love them both! Little editions to add to my sleeve as it's coming along nicely!
Ended the night at Central & Co with the best cocktail I've ever tasted! If you guys go in there, you have got to try the 'Elder club'. It's a mixture of gin, elder flower and lemon and something else that was magical. Seriously couldn't ask for a better day. I hope my 21st birthday would be as amazing as this one has been. Just have to remember not to stress about it and just go with the flow!
