its my birthday!

best uk fashion bloggers london style blog outfit of the day
Yayyyy, its my Birthday! I've finally hit the grand old age of 24! Yesterday I went for pre birthday drinks with some friends up in Angel. We went to my all time favourite bar The Four Sisters & also popped into John Salt for happy hour. Also had a cheeky The Diner meal to start things off as I hadnt been in ages. It used to be a place I went all the time but I've slowly but surely found other burger joints I enjoy more - But it is what it is!

I've felt overwhelmingly positive the past few days. I felt like I had an emotional crisis last year and felt more lost than I'd ever done. I have very few goals in life (which I don't think is a bad thing... it's just hard sometimes) so when you never know where you want to be feeling directionless is a odd feeling. I just feel like I've finally realised who I want to be as a person and that's a big deal. I'm finally happy and self assured again and I feel ready to tackle adulthood properly... well... a little.

I always felt weird having my birthday on Easter Sunday, I remember when I was younger and it fell on the same day I had a little tantrum as I wanted it to be all about me. But this time around I'm much more chilled out. I'm popping over to my friend Mandy & Bing's for a bit of Birthday Rules and just generally chilling out. I've made a little birthday word vomit video on my second channel if you wanted to here a bit more of my thoughts but for now Im going to get ready, eat some chocolate and enjoy being 24. Love you all, you da best xx

  3. Happy Birthday and Happy Easter Lily. Finding yourself and purpose can be hard at times, and when you feel directionless it can really take its toll on you. I'm so happy that you feel pleased with the direction your life is going in.

  73. I feel very similar to how you felt, im 24 this year and feel like I should have more goals - but I just dont! I would love for you to elaborate on getting through these periods of self doubt. I feel happy mostly but sometimes I just get caught in a downward spiral of worry and panic for no reason! would love to hear it from your perspective :)
