The final part to my birthday was celebrated with my dad, we had a lovely day out to Harrogate, followed by a barbecue, cannot go wrong!!
I was treated to lunch at The Bluebell just outside of Harrogate, where I had the most amazing fish & chips. Followed by treats at Betty's Tea Room, including pink lemonade and macaroons. I had never been to Harrogate, but the weather was so lovely and I did a good bit of shopping too.
Once I got home I was treated to my birthday presents including the matching pandora ring to my bangle, and a pearl Tiffany bracelet. My aunt and uncle also gave me a Marc De Champagne truffle and champagne set... beware they are beyond addictive. My dad's girlfriend also treated me to a wonderful homemade birthday cake, yummmmm.
Have you had a birthday recently? What are you planning? Leave me a comment below! :)

Soooo part three, (told you I celebrated my birthday in quite a few ways!). Friday 15th July was my actual birthday, unfortunately for me it was a Friday and everyone was working! However I did get to go to York for the day, lucky me!
As well as a bit of retail therapy, where I didn't actually manage to find anything I wanted, and when I did find something it wasn't in my size... I also had the most lovely lunch. We went to Bills, I had one of their "superfood salads"- check me out being all healthy on my bday! Combined with their delicious pink lemonade- try it, and for desert, their amazing chocolate brownie!
After that the weather faired up a little, so we took a walk through the park and had ice cream before getting the train home. My mum had put together a little birthday tea, with an improvised cake from my birthday party! I am so thankful for all of my presents, including a Kate Spade hand bag, Pandora bangle, Spa break courtesy of my best friend, and lots of Topshop vouchers. I was spoilt rotten!

From cake pops to photo booth props, polaroids to sweet jars, candles to pinatas and not to mention pass the parcel, gold cupcakes and helium balloons, my 21st Birthday party was my little project for months! I tried my absolute up most to make my party the girliest ever.
The venue was "The garden room" at Whitworth Hall just outside of Durham, a conservatory room which was the perfect place to hold my "Sparkling Afternoon Tea Party". I only invited 21 of my close family and friends, for afternoon tea, pinata wacking, adult pass the parcel, and a lot of Polaroid picture taking.
I went to the effort of finding pictures from each year of my life to create a photo line, found tea party themed photo props, added candles and sweet jars to my tables, created a scrap book for everyone to share and write comments about their polaroid snaps, and even made mini sweet jar party favours.
It was literally one of the best days of my life, and I felt so humbled to have such wonderful friends and family around who not only shared the day with me, but gave me the most beautiful cards and presents. I must mention, my beautiful two tiered genache cake (white chocolate & raspberry and lemon drizzle) was made by The Cake House in Spennymoor, and was literally the most wonderful cake I have ever tasted! My hair was done by Hair Haus Bishop Auckland and also my dress was from Topshop... back to one of my previous posts featuring my rose gold heels- I didn't even get to wear these in the end because once I put gel cushions in... they were so UN COMFY.
