18th Birthday celebrations | Photo diary

Thursday the 9th- My actual birthday!!

Birthday table when I went downstairs in the morning.

Staring at my new ring on the way to school. (Liv Purvis' Oliver Bonus collection!)

Obsessed with the colours in this photo! 

Just wishing Summer could stay forever. 

My face when I opened this :0. Such a lucky girl! 

I hope you enjoyed some of the highlights! 

I thought I would add that alongside the pretty pictures, there were a lot of moments that wouldn't have been so blog post worthy. It was a struggle at some points with the anxiety I had felt in the two weeks leading up to my celebrations. On most of these days, I woke up thinking I couldn't go and do whatever I had planned. However, with the help I had from my counsellor and the work I put in myself, I managed to do it and create some of the best memories. And I think that made this birthday a little bit more special.
