21 is a big number isn’t it? Well its the last ‘big’ one people take notice of till you’re 30. I thought I would share what I got for my 21st birthday. I love reading posts and watching videos like this, so I thought I would give it a go.
I was very lucky this year and family and friends were extra generous with their gifts. I was given a few pieces of jewellery this year. I’ve only just got my ears pierced very recently, so I haven’t really changed my earrings very often. So I was so excited receive a pair of Green Quartz Earrings from Sarah Hickey from a friend. I probably wouldn’t have picked these out myself because I haven’t worn anything but my small silver stud Swarovski crystal earrings. Time for a change!
I also got a ‘J’ necklace made by a brand called Silver Origins based in Cornwall.
Two of my Aunties pooled together to get me a very special White Gold Diamond Cluster Necklace. I was so surprised when I was handed this. I really wasn’t expecting something so special.
Of course to fulfil my beauty junkie needs, I asked for a few bits on my birthday list. I was running very low of my favourite serum, the Kiehl’s Hydro-Pluming Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate so asked for a cheeky bottle. The other day I saw a post on Instagram that said that the Urban Decay Naked palette is being discontinued. This reminded me of the fact that I really don’t have any palettes where all the colours are totally wearable. Then I remembered I swatched the Naked 3 Palette and really liked it, so asked for one.
I also got the limited edition Jo Malone Tropical Cherimoya Cologne. Normally it takes me a very long time to choose a fragrance I like. However this particular one is so up my street with it’s warm fruity scent.
My sister asked me what I wanted two days before my birthday and I was completely stumped with what to suggest. Then I mentioned that I’ve been getting back into baking recently baking lots of cakes and macarons and re-watching lots of old seasons of The Great British Bake Off, so then I realised I need more tools, so asked for a thermometer, piping bags and also baking mats.
