Birthday Girl

On Monday I turned 23 and it wasn't as scary as I thought. I had such a lovely day surrounded by my amazing family and friends. I was utterly spoilt and felt very lucky. I met my mum and nan for lunch and had my favourite noodle dish Yum Yum chicken. Yes it was just as delish as it looks! My dad whipped up the Hummingbird cupcakes, he's a bit of a dab hand in the baking department!

In the evening my mum put on one of her famous buffets where we end up still eating the leftovers days after. She always puts on the nicest spreads and the way it was demolished by family and friends showed they agreed! I'm not going out with friends until the end of the month. I have to choose payday as everyone is so skint after Christmas. Not that I mind as I get to drag my birthday out for two weeks!

A few snippets of my presents. This completely unflattering owl kigu was an amazing gift from my boyfriend. I absolutely love it even if it does make me look like a two-ton Tessa. In fact I am monging around in it now! My parents treated me to a beautiful Mulberry purse. It was a complete surprise and I can't stop sneaking a peak at it in my bag. It deserves a post of its own. I am going to do a birthday gift post in the next few days as I personally love seeing what other people got!

A massive thanks to everyone who wished me happy birthday!
