Yesterday was my fake 21st Birthday! I had my real birthday on the 26th of March but couldn't be at home because of uni. My mother and brother came to visit me for a few days but could only bring a couple of presents so yesterday I opened the rest, blew out the candles on my cake and went out for dinner with my family in Brighton!

I thought it'd be nice to show you what I wore for my fake birthday which just happened to include my lovely  navy Cambridge Satchel (as seen above) which I got for my birthday. I love that it has my initials on! I also wore my new Chanel lipstick and my lovely charm bracelet. I think I will do a post later this week on all the lovely new fashion related things I got for my birthday cause it seemed to be a real  theme this year. When in doubt, buy me something fashion related and I will be happy!

I can say with certainty that it was the best fake birthday ever. A nice day without the pressure of 
OH-MY-GOD-TODAY-HAS-TO-BE-AMAZING-CAUSE-I-ONLY-GET-THIS-ONCE-A-YEAR!

Anyway, let me know what you think of my satchel and my outfit and I'd love to know whether you've ever had a fake Birthday?

I love your Cambridge satchel! My parents bought me one as a Christmas gift a few years back and I just adore it. Mine's brown though and I just love your black one.

I've had a fake birthday before when I was younger, when I wasn't going to be around my family for that particular day. I can't say I didn't enjoy receiving my presents a day earlier!! That satchel bag is so nice, I need a bag like that in my life!

Also thank-you, I have only been doing these things for my own blog at the moment, but I'm open to collaborating with others! :) I know, those shorts are amazing - such a vibrant and such different print to anything I've ever seen before!
