21!

01/07/2014

 Jumpsuit: New Look         Shoes: ASOS         Necklace: gift
Bracelets: Pandora and Nomination

Today I turned 21! Now there's absolutely no way that I can avoid the fact that I'm officially an adult, which is rather scary. I also don't like the fact that my next big birthday is 30... anyway, moving on!

I got back from Glastonbury yesterday (highlights post coming soon), and I'm off to Berlin on Friday, so I decided against having a big bash on my actual birthday. Instead, I had a lovely relaxing day with my family, which included going for a delicious meal at our favourite restaurant - a little place called The Fishpool near Delamere. I wanted to dress up a bit, even though it was only a very small gathering - it is my 21st, after all! So I donned this floral playsuit, which I picked up from New Look a few weeks ago. It's SO comfy, and pretty much universally figure-flattering.

Amongst a few other lovely presents, I was very excited to receive a new lense for my DSLR! So, of course, I decided to test it out in these snaps. I'm completely in love with the fantastic depth of field, though these photos don't quite do it justice - still getting to grips with the focus! I take my blog photos myself, which means lots of running to and from the camera as I don't have a remote. It also means getting the focus just right can be a bit of a nightmare! Practice makes perfect, eh?

I thought the garden would make a nice backdrop for a change, too!

  5. A day late but happy birthday!! You look gorgeous. Waaah I'm 20 next and i hate that, I think i'll cry when I reach 21! I remember when I was little i'd write stories and all the characters would be 21 because I thought that was the 'cool adult stage' and now it just scares me. Can't wait for the Glastonbury post!
