I literally can't believe it's been an entire year since my 21st Birthday, it's gone by so quickly, and so many things have happened in the past year! If you followed my blog a year ago you may remember that I was really sick on my last birthday, so this birthday, I made up for it big time! I spent my actual birthday at work (they got me a cake though - woo!), then last night I went to Barbarella with around 25 of my closest friends. You may remember I went to the launch party when it opened back in October, you can see that post here.
Now, I'm a huuuuge fan of Barbs, it's an awesome bar and club on the Fulham Road that feels as though you're having a party in your friends house. However, I started the day having my hair done by my amazing friend Daniel who works for Toni & Guy. I desperately needed it cut as I haven't had it done for about 6 months (bad, I know), so it was all gross. After cutting it he styled it for me too, and he did it all using GHD's - it amazes me what you can do with them!

FOTN: Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation, MAC Studio Fix Powder, Bourjous Blusher in Amber Rose, Max Factor Mascara, B. Liquid eyeliner, Inika eyeshadows, Bobbi Brown lipstick.
After getting my hair done I headed into London and went for dinner with Arabella at Aubaine on Brompton Road, Claire was meant to join us but she got stuck on a train on the way down from oop north. The food was lovely, Aubaine is such a great place for a chilled out dinner.
After dinner we headed to Barbarella for party timeeee! The one bad thing about birthdays is everyone insists on buying you a drink, so I got very drunk, very quickly. I had a really awesome time though and I'm so grateful to my amazing friends for helping me make up for last years disaster!
My dress is one I picked up when I was back in Australia recently. It's from Dotti, and is now in the sale :( Don't you just hate it when that happens!?

The staff at Barbs were amazing, everything just went so smoothly, and all my friends got in no problem no matter what time they arrived. And despite the fact I was so drunk I was asking them to hurry up and open the club area so we could dance, and then asleep on the sofa at one point, they weren't nasty about it like some clubs get when you're way too drunk. They understood it was my birthday and I was there to have a good time, and did what they could to ensure that.
After dancing and when our tummies started rumbling, we headed to VQ for food. I eventually got to sleep at 4am, and am now sitting on the sofa eating Thorntons chocolate birthday cake and watching Dreamgirls. I had a really awesome birthday, and am feeling very blessed to have such amazing family and friends!
