twenty two

A little Birthday tea with Dom & my Mum's homemade coffee cake, mmm..  (p.s sorry for the bad quality of this photo!)

Last Friday I turned 22, which sounds really weird to me because when I was younger I used to think anyone in their twenties was really old & a "proper adult" & whilst I am an "adult" in the eyes of the law I certainly don't feel like I'm a proper adult & thought I'd have achieved way more by now, but nevermind! 

Anyway I wanted to share some of my birthday photos as I had the nicest few days. I was spoilt rotten by Dom who took me for a meal at Jamie Oliver's Italian (order the funky chips - so so yummy!), followed by a trip to London a couple of days later for an afternoon treat at Laduree - the rose petal macarons are my faveee!

I didn't ask for much gift wise this year but I got lots of lovely bits & pieces, mostly home related things - yankee candles, pretty bathroom towels, cupcake themed items for my kitchen, cushions for the sofa & bed etcc. I haven't photographed all the bathroom/kitchen stuff, I'm thinking of doing a little flat tour if anyone would like to see that? I also asked for a couple of cook books as I want to try experimenting more when I cook meals for Dom & I but always struggle for ideas & inspiration! Super happy I got the Marc Jacobs Honey gift set, it will sit nicely next to my bottle of Marc Jacobs Daisy! The Cath Kidston baking set is the cutest, I can't wait to do some baking now, although I'm not sure I want to get the apron mucky because it's so pretty!

  13. Happy belated birthday. I'm the same. I used to think that 21 is like "well old". Now I'm 22 and I feel like I'm still 18.
