18th Birthday Celebrations!

Hey guys!

As many, many of you know (because I wouldn't stop talking about it!), it was my birthday over a week ago.
My birthday celebrations was dragged out for a whole week and ended a couple of days ago.

It was all kicked off with a pamper session on July 18th with my mum and sisters. I headed to my favourite nail shop, had my acrylic nails refilled and a luxury pedicure, my mum and sister's had the same and it was so nice to bond with them.
It was also nice to see my mum relaxing and not having to worry about anything but herself!
So the whole day was just a girls' day and I loved it.

20th July.
The big day.
I turn 18!

I woke up to my new tablet and ripped (slight exaggeration!) it open and started making use of it straight away!
Sister jumped down from the top bunk to sing a song like we always do, her's was Beyonce - Flawless, "I woke up like this . . . we flawless" back in May and mine was Will.I.Am & Cody Wise - It's My Birthday, "It's my birthday . . . Ima spend my money".
Just a little sisterly tradition.

The day was then carried on with a Full English Breakfast, a couple movies, me being sang 'Happy Birthday' to, cake and then a huge Chinese dinner. 
I loved how my actual birthday was so chilled, I spent it with the family and it went exactly to plan!

Throughout the week, there was numerous shopping trips, family coming over to visit, birthday cards, money and birthday antics.
I did do a day of interning which was fun too! I love my internship, I work with amazing people!

Now, the day I was looking forward to. July 25th.
A day of alcohol, 18 year old 'bidniz', dressing up and all that.

The day started off great, I was excited about being 18 and being able to order a glass of alcohol and have the ID to show. However, as the day went along, it got worse and worse, to the point where I didn't even want to leave my house.
It rained pigeons and rats, my has was curled and the curls dropped due to the humidity.
Nothing was going to plan.

Luckily, I have an amazing auntie that dropped me and the bestie halfway so wouldn't be trotting around in the rain, by the time we'd got our halfway destination the rain had stopped and from then on, the evening got better.
I met up with everyone, we chilled in Trafalgar Square (saw a mahooosive rat) and then we headed to TGI Friday's in Leicester Square.
I ordered a huge drink (Bacardi Sweetheart) and drank every last drop!

I had an amazing night, we planned to head to a club but we were knackered so we agreed to save it for another day.

I loved how my 18th birthday panned out, it was a rollercoaster week. I was a queen, a grateful kid,  a diva, a spoilt brat, a grown woman (yes, I felt like that some days!) all in the space of 7 days!

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes, the gifts/money, the advice, I really, really appreciate it.
Life as a 18 year old is going to be an experience and a half but I'm sure I'll love it!
