I have to admit, just a few months ago, the thought of turning 26 scared me a little. I have always had a fear of getting older and the thought of heading into my late 20’s meant that my life was pretty much done. I have since learnt to come to terms with embracing getting older, I mean, there’s no way around it, is there! Once you become comfortable in your own skin, life truly does become so much better. And, I have to say, this had to be one of my best birthdays yet!

I didn’t want to do anything too crazy this year, I have been in summer mode so planning and organising an event just sounded like too big of a task. I didn’t want to make a huge fuss- just a dew drinks, some giant blow up pool toys and some of my favourite people to celebrate with. This was the perfect recipe for a fun night. I am pretty lucky to have the friends that I do. Celebrating at home is only fun when you have great people surrounding you- and I definitely have that! The older you get- the more you begin to realise how important the people are that are always there for you. Surround yourself with kind hearted and fun people always, and do things for each other without expecting something in return.

P.s My cake was made by my mum and it was made up from three different layers, and yes she also made the Macarons herself! I was so impressed by her efforts! She only started making these cakes a few months ago and she is doing so well with it!
