Nothing can compare to spending your birthday with your loved ones. I used to go on holiday over the duration of my birthday but you just don't get that warm feeling you have when you're surrounded by the people you care about.
My birthday started off quite hectic as I was stressing out trying to get everything sorted and decorated. Luckily my other half as well as a couple of my friends helped me out (if you're reading this - thank you so much!). I couldn't have spent it with better people and I'm so happy that it went really smoothly. Wearing my new favourite dress that I bought especially for the occasion definitely boosted my happy meter! I mean, the birthday gal just has to look good, don't you think?
My birthday was split over two days; the first where I held a barbecue and the other where my partner and I went to the kitty cafe. We coincidentally went on the same day as International Cat Day and I loved it so much! I went there last year and I've been meaning to go again, and I'm so glad that I brought my DSLR with me. I don't think I can ever go back to using my phone camera now unless it's for selfies and outfit shots, although I'm still a bit of a n00b so if you have any tips then please let me know!

All in all, my birthday was amazing, and super chilled for once. I'm really sad that it's over - it went so quickly! Now I'm really really looking forward to Halloween tehehe. I've already started looking at outfits etc for the whole of October and I can't wait for Autumn.
How do you normally celebrate your birthday? I love having the whole weekend to celebrate, but it's difficult when it falls during the week. It's weird because I never did anything much for my birthday until a few years ago but now I relish in the moment. I just love spoiling myself - well, I have a pretty good excuse for it!
That's all for this week, until next Sunday ♡
