Can't believe I've not posted in almost two weeks! Life's been super busy but i'm eventually finishing up my first year of sixth form college so I should be able to post more often over summer!
Anyways, as I'm writing this, my 17th birthday was last week (the 23rd of June to be exact, put it in your diary for next year haha!). I had such a lovely day with my boyfriend, friends and family! I took a few pictures throughout the day so thought I'd share them with you all. Also sorry if the picture quality isn't that great, my camera and SD card decided not to work on my birthday so I had to just use my trusty iPhone camera! Anyway, enjoy...
So, in my family, the night before our birthdays we set out all our cards, presents and cake (this year I got a flake one, chocolate cake's my fave) on the table the night before and my mum usually decorates the dining room of our house with banners and other decorations. So that when we wake up we can come downstairs and open everything before we go out for the day. This year was no different! I was so lucky with all the lovely gifts and presents I got off family and friends. If you're wondering what those gifts are I'm hoping to upload a 'What I Got For My Birthday' video over on my youtube channel this week. So please make sure you go over and subscribe to that: here. Along with following all my social media accounts (links on the right of my blog) to keep up to date with when I upload videos and blog posts.
I then had to go into college to attend some lessons unfortunately. However luckily I finished early at one o'clock and my boyfriend, Tom, met me on the train and we headed into Manchester. Ignore how awful I look in the picture above, unfortunately I didn't take as many pictures over the day as I would've liked! Once in Manchester we went and got Pizza Hut buffet for dinner (my favourite meal ever) and Tom gave me his gift. He'd wrapped it in such a beautiful wrapping paper and gave me a lovely card. I'll give you a sneak peak into my video, but he got me an amazing grey backpack from Zara and i had a massive surprise when I opened the bag to find a pair of black toms packed inside. It was such an amazing, thoughtful present, I'm so grateful and lucky. However after the meal we then went and had a little bit of a shop around the centre of manchester.
We then went for tea at 'The Gourmet Burger Kitchen' in the food court at The Trafford Centre. Only Tom had been before and I think both me and my mum were surprised at how much we enjoyed it. The food was amazing along with the service we received. It was especially great for my mum who is a vegetarian and allergic to gluten, they had options to satisfy both these needs. So don't be put of by the idea that it's a 'burger' restaurant as I'm sure there'll be food options for all your party regardless of dietary requirements. After this we had another wander around the shops before heading home for the night.
So in conclusion I had a fantastic, relaxing day spent with the people I care most about. Thankyou to anyone who wished me a happy birthday, bought me a card or present or just in general made my day fantastic.
I'd highly recommend anywhere I visited in this video, especially the Gourmet Burger Kitchen along with the Trafford Centre if you've not been in a while!
