Turning 27...

So this weekend I turned 27. Yes, 27! I'll be completely honest, I'd been pretty devastated about it for about a week. Before anyone judges me, I know I'm not like dead old, and I don't class myself as feeling or looking old either. It's just the thought of 'shit, where did the last 7 years go'. I remember when I'd just turned 20, and thought the time in my 20's would be the best, and they've just flown by. Yes they have been great years, and I've done a lot that I wanted to do, and have travelled to some amazing places, but there's still so much left to do.

My best friend recently made a '30 things to do before I'm 30' list - and I thought this was a brilliant idea. I think it would make turning 30 slightly less depressing, because at least you'd have accomplished all these goals.

Anyway, now I've turned 27 I'm actually okay. So I'm going to celebrate with some cake and prosecco while playing with all my presents. All my presents this year actually summed me up pretty well; I love the gym, I love to drink and I love anything Mulberry (and of course the chocolates and gift cards are every girls dream). I also got a few more bottles of prosecco (these had already been drank by the time I came to take the picture), and some nice smellies which I'm looking forward to using!

Here's what I got for my birthday this year….

Gym Bottoms: Missguided Active
Gym tops: H&M
C Candle: Next / MyVoucherCodes
Mulberry purse and gloves: Mulberry

These leggings from Missguided are actually the comfiest gym leggings I have ever worn. I've got a few nike pairs that were double the price, but they are no wear near as comfortable as these ones, I seriously did not want to take them off! Going to the gym in nice comfy clothing honestly makes such a difference, so if you're looking for some new gear, I would definitely recommend looking at this range.

My best friend got me the gorgeous 'C' candle from Next and it smells soooo good. I love Next's home range - they always have such fab collections. MyVoucherCodes currently have an unmissable deal on - if you recommend a friend to Next, you both can get £20 off when they place their first order - I know, amazing right?! Check out more details here.

I'm not going to be superficial, but these presents did make me feel a lot better about turning another year older and now being classed as 'late 20's'. I don't know if it was just the drink that made me feel better or what, but whatever it was, I like the feeling!

Here's to being 27….
