I turned 21 on Wednesday 23rd May.

instead of rambling on and on about time flying and growing up and all of that. I'm just going to post pictures from the party i had last friday, which was glitter themed. (I had glitter tequila jelly shots and a pint of glitter to glitter bomb people with and glittery cake and glitter nails!!!) It was beautiful. I just typed the word glitter SO much! :)


I think the reason why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can’t do coke at 25. I need to be in a LTR at 27. I can’t vomit from drinking at 26. I just can’t! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We’re obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our shit together. It’s kind of sad actually because I don’t think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We’re so concerned about doing things “the right way” that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young.

  1. love this post, I'm 25 in a couple of months and I just don't care anymore! I will act like I'm still 18 and I'm vowing to enjoy myself as much as I can.
    Might have a glitter party of my own xx

  2. do it! it is 100% a good idea even if it has been a week and me, my flat, my flat mates and the whole uni campus is still covered in glitter :) xxx

  3. I loveeee this idea for a party. And that dress is amazing. Happy birthday for that day! x
