So, for those of you that don’t follow me on instagram (sorry to those of you that do!) you won’t know that yesterday marked a quarter century of my life on this fine earth! And to say we celebrated in style was an understatement…
My beau SMASHED IT.
Champagne, beautiful gifts and THOSE homemade (like, entirely from scratch!) pretzels.
It was BEYOND.
Of course, I couldn’t help but share this loveliness with you, as well as 25 little pearls that I’ve learnt about myself and life in my years on this earth! Hope this gives you beautiful people some crazy-good Friday vibes.
I am feelin’ the love!
Ps. If you want any extra details/links on any of my lovely birthday gifts – just drop a comment at the end of the post and I’ll fill y’all in X
Seriously though, those pretzels were insane! So much so, that I demanded the recipe from my hubby (call me a diva, I know!). Y’all now officially need to get your bake on tonight!
Ok so, 25 thinks I’ve learned in 25 years:
one: marrying your best friend will be the best thing you’ll ever do
two: stretching is good
three: although picking off one’s nail varnish feels good at the time (like peeling off PVA when you were a kid) the aftermath is horrendous
four: blow drys are overrated
five: singing lifts the soul
Thought I’d include some of the birthday haul! That Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow is just INSANE, perfect for a natural bridal eye! And that Fossil lotus flower bracelet? Oh hey perfect bridesmaid gift. So gorge!
six: iced coffee is always a good idea
seven: mothers make fabulous best friends
eight: if the ponytail doesn’t work by the third attempt, it ain’t happening
nine: wool may sound like a good idea. But it’s kinda itchy
ten: less is most definitely more
eleven: silence is okay, in fact sometimes it’s preferred
twelve: dogs really are man’s best friend
thirteen: I can’t say no to denim
fourteen: listening is key
fifteen: it’s not about what you have. It’s about who
Jo Malone Orange Blossom is just summer scent perfection, it’s delicious! And those Real Techniques brushes? Just divine! If you’re looking to do your own bridal makeup, they’re the perfect (very reasonably priced) investment!
sixteen: there’s something to be loved in every season
seventeen: opinion is irrelevant
eighteen: fresh air heals
nineteen: more often than not, it’s a case of mind over matter
twenty: I am a sci-fi fan and there’s no point denying it
twenty one: even if it means slightly larger hips, midnight snacks are worth it
twenty two: you never really lose anyone, they’re still here with you
twenty three: I only like warm lighting, anything else is not ok
twenty four: I like to write in slang, a lot
twenty five: leopard print is as versatile as a nude
Big happy Friday love to you all! Have a sick weekend and we’ll see you fresh Monday morning for more awesomeness!
Peace + Love
