Hello my friends!
It was my birthday the other week, and I wanted to share what I did. I’ve previously done this, I believe I did one two years ago…anyways, let’s get to it!
On my actual birthday, I had uni which is great and had an assignment due haha. It’s been a stressful month for me because uni is just crazy at the moment, but I’m super close to graduating.
On the weekend though, I had a little picnic with my close friends in the city, I initially planned a bigger event with more people, but because of Covid, amongst other things, I decided to keep it small. I haven’t been able to see my friends much this year, though we barely see each other a lot throughout the year because we’re all studying/working/socialising.
I kept my makeup quite natural-ish for the day, because I planned to wear a mask on the bus and on the way home, so I didn’t want to go too overboard. Here is what I wore, and I loved the result! Super glowy, and what I would call natural glam I guess haha, not too glamourous but I just loved the look at the end of the day!
We met up at Martin Place in Sydney and made our way to the Royal Botanical Gardens and had a great time, it was a bit gloomy that day, but the sun came out a few hours later. We just drank, ate and caught up with each other!
Afterwards, we walked back to Pitt Street Mall and I decided to go to Myer because it has a Mecca inside, and redeem my birthday gift. I’m only Level 1, so I got the little mask set – which I suppose is fitting, because I could bring it to my little staycay.
The following weekend I spent away with my boyfriend, another person who I haven’t seen that much of this year. We stayed at an Airbnb in a lovely suburb which had a gorgeous view of the water and the opposing buildings – it was like a skyline.
We bought food to cook in the Airbnb, and we also ate at a burger joint not too far away from where we were staying as well. The weather was not great unfortunately, it was hot, then raining and storming, but I had the best company so I didn’t mind haha.
I don’t have a lot of photos to share with you all, because they’re pretty personal and I mostly took videos over the weekend.
Overall, it was a great birthday, given the circumstances of this year. Every year I reflect on the year that went by, and I always determine whether it was a great year, by all the new things I experienced when I was that age. I would say being 21 has provided a lot of challenges, new experiences and growth, which has all shaped me to be the person I am today. I hope being 22 brings me many more blessings in my career and my personal life!
Thank you for reading today’s post, a bit more personal than usual, though I usually don’t share too many personal details of my life, but I hope you enjoyed this one!
