My Birthday Surprise :)

Hello dolls :)

I haven't blogged for a little while as it was my birthday this weekend just gone and I had the most amazing time! I was already really excited and I didn't expect what actually happened. I got lots of lovely treats and dolla, so I can go and splurge on some lovely treats for myself (& blog about them of course!). Basically it was my birthday on the 10th of June and I spent Friday - Tuesday being the birthday girl! Greedy huh?!

Basically my mum came up on Friday and we went for a lovely meal and she bought me some of the beloved American Apparel disco pants I have wanted for ages. I was having such a dilem over the red and black ones, but I ended up opting for black just because I know I will get loads of wear out of them. The red ones are too gorge to leave alone though, so I'm thinking of splashing out on them too!

On the Saturday night, I went out with my friends from uni as I would be turning 22 (eughh) at midnight, so obvs needing a celebratory tequila or ten right?! I wore an outfit I have previously posted, as I haven't had chance to wear it yet, and I was busting to get my skirt out for the world to see :) please excuse my tip of a room!

Skirt: H&M

I had such a fun night and got very drunk. Therefore I spent my birthday day, in bed, eating McDonald's and having a Disney sesh, perfect hangover day in my eyes. My best friend had arranged for me to head round to hers later on for a 'surprise'. I presumed we would be having some food and a few drinks, so I whacked on a smart/casual outfit and headed round.

I knocked on the door and next thing I know I had party poppers in my face and there was balloons everywhere! I was getting videoed for some reason and I was like, 'what the hell is going on'. They (my best friend and her flat mates) read out a speech to me, which was hilarious, then led me to a cupboard with 'Birthday Surprise' wrote on the door. I was still like what is going on, opened the door and my friends from home jumped out ! Amazing ! I was so made up and then I started crying, I am too emosh its cringe! They had all kept it a secret and came all the way up to be with me on my birthday :) how cute!

The best thing about all of this, my boyf is in Fiji and planned it all with my best friend <3 I am so blessed to have good people in my life. I got lots of lovely goodies and they had put together all my favourite songs on a playlist, as well as lots of champagne for us all to celebrate with. Next thing I know, I am whisked off to one of my fave resteraunts - Chiquito's, and I get a yummy meal and catterpillar birthday cake - YUM! As it was a Sunday we had a few drinks in some of the bars in town, then went back to the flat to continue the party with lots of drinking games. I had such an amazing day. My friend had even kindly brought up my new ASOS dress that I had sent home, which I LOVE.

Birthday gyal !

To top things off, I woke up the next day so blaaamin excited as I had got tickets for Jay Z and Kanye at the M.E.N for that night. I'm not even joking it was literally one of the best nights of my life, on par with when I went to see Beyonce (and held her hand *died with happiness*) and I never thought I would say that. I had standing tickets and I ended up right at the barrier of the second stage, so I was really close! I LOVE the Watch The Throne album, plus they did looaads of their old stuff, I think there was 40 songs all together and an encore of N*ggas in Paris five times! Amazing! Sorry if you don't appreciate this type of music but I really had such an amazing time! We hit a club afterwards then crashed and burned as soon as we hit the pillow! Exhausted. Here is what I wore for the gig and my quick change & shower (I felt disgusting!) for the club afterwards.
