Happy 25th Birthday To Me

25 aka quarter of a century. Maybe turning 25 won't be so bad. I can still choose if I want to be wise and mature, or young and care-free. I have every excuse to have a quarter life crisis. 25 means lower car rental rates (even if I don't have a driver's license lol). I can totally justify buying expensive cosmetics; gotta keep that skin young! I am still a "young adult" and have 15 years before "middle age". 30 is the new 20, haven't you heard?! I'll always be ten days older than my future husband but I still look pretty young for my age. I get to celebrate with pizza, family and friends, and most importantly cake!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know I turned 25 this past Sunday (if you haven't guessed it from the massive balloons). It rained throughout the entire day and it obviously completely ruined the plans I had of going to Canterbury for the day; I had in mind a walk along the canals, boat tours, photos from the university hill and basically a walk down memory lane having lived in the city for three years whilst I was at uni. I still very much want to take this trip, perhaps later in the month. But instead, I ended up having lunch with the family at Lakeside, which is a twenty-minute drive from our new home in Essex, followed by a movie session with the fiancé to see Passengers. I expected the movie to be a lot more sci-fi and "actiony" but it was romance through and through! Not that I'm complaining, Chris Pratt makes it all worth it. Yes, it wasn't exactly what I had in mind for my big day but it was just as lovely. Sometimes less is more and I had a great time with my loved ones and that is what birthdays are all about.

For the past two weekends we have been extremely busy with the move, leaving little time for much else but I am glad and grateful we all found the time to celebrate my birthday and enjoy it as a family. I thank God for blessing me much more than I deserve and despite all the jokes, I know I'm not getting old, I'm just getting better. This is the year I get married to the man I love, the year I start my own family, the year I go on my dream honeymoon! Needless to say, I can't wait to see what this next year has in stores for me and I very much look forward to sharing these special moments in our lives here on the blog too! 

What did you do this past weekend? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading beauties and for all the birthday wishes I received on Instagram!
Wishing us all a happy week ahead!
