Twenty One.

So today I turned 21, eek! Where have the years gone? I still feel like I did at 18 except perhaps a more secure and confident person, which is always a good thing I think. I'm determined that this is the year I will figure out what I want to do with my life, so check back in a year and we'll see what happens!
face
♥ Revlon ColorStay - Ivory.
♥ Benefit Boi-ing & Benefit Erase Paste.
♥ ELF Mascara.
♥ Illamasqua Blush - Unrequited.
♥ Illamasqua Lipstick - Fable.

fableSince 21 is a milestone birthday I thought starting a charm bracelet would be the perfect present. It's something I can add to over time & I already have a couple of charms ready to add that I've had since I was tiny. Maybe one day I'll be able to pass this on to my children. I won't go into what the charms represent for me but I love it so much! ♥
bracelet
My beautiful Grannie has given me the necklace she wore on her wedding day & I am so in love with it. She gave me her engagement ring when I was 18 and I've promised to look after them and more importantly, enjoy them! ♥
necklace
I adore vintage jewellery. I think there's something so magical about having something that's older than you are. It has it's own history & memories that you can add your own to.
bear
Yes, I am 21 but I will always love getting bears as presents! Always! Look at his face, adorable ♥

I just wanted to thank everyone that's wished me a happy birthday! I love you all lots & starting a blog is one of the best things I've ever done! I'm going away for the weekend with the boy, yay! I'll be back next week to catch up on all your blog posts ♥

Love love love!
xoxo

  6. Happy 21st! :) You look gorgeous here. Oh the charm bracelet and the necklace are beautiful. I don't have anything that's been passed down to me, I think it's so nice to do that. Fable looks amazing on. What is the texture of it like? xo

    @emma - Fable is very very matte! Lots of lip balm needed but it's totally worth it!
