Nineteen


On Thursday it was my nineteenth birthday. I think that nineteen's a bit of a strange age, personally. It's not as exciting as turning eighteen and yet you still haven't entered a new decade as you do when you turn twenty. It feels like a bit of an in between age, at least to me.

So this birthday was pretty quiet and I liked it that way actually. It's the first birthday I've not been with my Mum for which was a little odd but it was nice to celebrate with uni friends. I woke up on Thursday a little worse for wear from the night before shall we say but I refused to stay in bed all day on my birthday and so after a shower I wasn't feeling so bad.

I spent most of the day opening presents/watching my favourite tv shows and essentially avoiding doing any work possible. Because not doing any work on your birthday is completely acceptable, right? In the evening my friends and I went to Urban Burger in Exeter for dinner. Urban Burger is a really nice restaurant that, you guessed it, does incredible burgers. They also have a cocktail bar downstairs called Urban Underground so after having an amazing dinner we headed down for a quick drink before heading home. It was a really nice evening and a lovely day.

I was so so spoiled this year that I can't quite believe it. My lovely friends from home sent me the beautiful flowers pictured above on the right and a bottle of wine. My Mum got me a Longchamp bag which I have wanted for ages and my favourite Chanel perfume. My sister bought me the beautiful dress and cami crop top pictured above and my uni friends got me a bottle-sized wine glass which is both hilarious and amazing.

But I was most of all spoiled by my one of a kind best friend, Lish. This girl not only got me a card that is completely 'me', some stunning earrings and a Topshop voucher, but she also sent me flowers just from her. I can't even begin to describe how lucky I am to have her as a friend and she really made this in between birthday special. So thank you Lish for being the best friend ever and thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday, I feel so grateful to have so many wonderful people in my life.

I have no idea what the age of nineteen has in store for me but I'm excited to find out!

  1. Happy late birthday! I've just turned 19 too and agree with it being such a weird age- it also makes me sad that it's the last year of being a teenager haha. The flowers you received are stunning and it's lovely that you have a great friend that made your day extra special. Hope 19 is good to you :) x
