21st birthday... and a return to blogging

Oh hi, still remember me? Don't worry, I don't blame you in the slightest if you don't. Obviously I've been away for a significant amount of time due to various life circumstances (well, actually just one job that completely consumed every inch of my existence) but I recently decided it was a great time for me to have a fresh start (having just graduated and all that) so I moved my life back home ready to start all over again. I'll have to admit I'm currently struggling downsizing from Manchester big city life to being back where I started out but on the plus side it means I actually have some time to invest in my little corner of the internet again!

I thought I would start off by just sharing a few snaps from my birthday, I was 21 on Sunday and instead of engaging in any wild activities I actually just spent the day completely chilling with my family and then struggled with an intense food coma for the rest of the evening. Rock and rollllll. It was a really lovely day though, I started out by opening all my cards and presents with my family and then mum made us all a vegan cooked breakfast - cute.

Princess paper, obviously.

I was super lucky and received so many nice girly gifts but in particular I think that my vegan chocolate box, animal face pants and vintage opal ring deserve a quick mention.

Name me one person that doesn't want a cute panda face on their butt.

My mum also made me this glorious vegan chocolate and raspberry birthday cake from this Jamie Oliver recipe and as you can see it turned out pretty perfectly. It was the icing on the cake to a lovely chilled day (pardon the pun) as we spent the night catching up with family friends over wine, cake and crisps.

I hope you've enjoyed these little snippets from the day and I promise I will be back with much more interesting content soon! Stay tuuuuuned.
