My 24th Birthday Celebrations



This weekend was packed with amazing food, great company and loads of fun; what better way to celebrate my 24th birthday! I had the best time and it truly was one of the best birthdays I've ever had. Not only did I have the most beautiful (and fitting) birthday cake made by the talented Alessandra Cake (here), the cutest decor and the tastiest food, my fiancé surprised me with the best gift a blogger could ever receive, the famous and much hyped Olympus Pen E-PL7 camera. Of course, I will be doing a full review of it here on the blog once I've learned how to use all of its features, but in short: A-mazing! Other gifts included make-up, lingerie, clothes, perfume and pretty much anything else girls love so thank you to all of my lovely friends!

For the occasion, I chose this ASOS Purple Dress (here) and I love how it matched the whole party theme. It has these beautiful velvet details both at the front and back and the bell sleeves make it a lot more interesting and boho looking. You can tell I went for the girly look not only with my outfit but with the entire decor, after all turning 24 isn't old at all and I wanted to have a bit of fun with it.


On Saturday night we got together with a bigger group of friends and headed to L'Artista, which in my opinion has the best Italian food in town. The prices are incredible affordable, portions are massive and the food is truly authentic (I'm half Italian so I'm very picky when it comes to Italian food). The restaurant's atmosphere is enjoyable, the decor is fun and they truly make you feel special on your birthday by singing Happy Birthday at the top of their lungs- Italian style. It is located just a few minutes away from Golders Green tube station so if you haven't been yet, I most definitely recommend paying a visit. Next time I'm there, I will be sure to take some pictures of the food and place and share a review here on the blog.

For this night out, I wore a Vero Moda Denim Dress (here) with flared sleeves that scream retro and are very 70s, and my trusty Clarks Over-The-Knee Brown Boots* (here).


Needless to say, this weekend was a big one and I can't believe how blessed I am to have such amazing people in my life to make occasions like these all the more special. Thanks to everyone who wished me happy birthday over here on the blog and on Instagram, and if you haven't entered my Urban Decay Giveaway yet make sure you do so HERE, it closes on the 1st of February and it is open internationally!

Thank you for reading and have a nice week ahead beauties!

xoxo

  3. It sounds like you had a great Birthday. Although it wasn't my own, I got to help celebrate one of my good friend's birthdays this weekend too and it was so much fun! I do love a good birthday celebration...Yay to you getting the Olympus Pen E-PL7, it's a great camera, I still need to learn how to do more with mine but it seems to take great photos without even trying!

  17. Can I just wish you happy birthday again? It sounds to me like you had an amazing day filled with the people you love and truth be told - I've never had (proper) italian food so that's a really big plus in my book. I'm so happy for you too, it looks like you got some amazing gifts (the camera, and mac and guylian - god, so good!). I just really wish you all the best in life, you deserve it so so much!

    I spot ferrero rochers too and that's making me want to get up and go get some. But nope. I'ma try to fight it.

    Once again, happy birthday love! May you have all the happiness in the world <3
