21 years Young



Notting Hill Carnival was amazing! I went down with 2 girl mates from uni, and i cant even describe how amazing the vibe was. We just turned down strret's and were met with thousands of people dancing to dancehall, garage and raggae. At one point we were so crushed i was grinding with about 7 people. The food was lush, and the parade was quality. Out of 1Million people i saw a mate from uni, Ben. Just standing behind me watching the parade.. I want to go next year and make a full day of it. i was only there a few hours, and without a camera, i have to survice with google images of the day!
My Birthday was yesterday. I am no 21, offically able to hire a car in another country and now offically an adult. Its a scary through, especially when i thought by 21 (while i was at the age oif 16) i would have everything i ever wanted. Job, car, money, someone i love. But in reality i am still broke, just been dumped and now starting a new career in teaching. My birthday was ok, as my friends tried to make the effortt but when you are told you are 'too fat' and 'i just dont fancy you anymore' - it kind of brings a downer on things, especially from someone you care about.
So single, and free. I have my sewing mahcine, and Bestival is in a few days. I am making my costume now and thanks to a great 50p dress from oxfam, i have made an amazing cushion cover for my new house!


The buttons i used for my grey cardigan ( trhe same as a £30 one in Miss Selfidge)

Monday

Carcrashing and Carnival



I am addicted to Fabric Paints. I bourght some 90's style high top gym shoes from primark for £6 and blue, gold and pint paint and now they look retro! The dye cost me £6 and now i have some ace traieners that no one else has. I also used the pink and gold to make alex a t-shirt which represented 'globalisation' and where he was from. It was just cirlces and lines but it looked wicked. I am egtting a sewing machine for myu brithday which means i can start altering jeans, and dresses that i dont wear because they are out of fashion. I have a gret cardigan which i got for £4 and i am taking the grey plastic buttons off and replacing with gold vintage ones which cost me £1.40 from a fabric shop. It will then look like a £30 one which is going for sale in Miss Selfridge.
Most people are going CARNIVAL this bank holiday weekend. I would love too, but i am going to reading to spend some time with my girl mates. Alex told me all about it and wat goes on, it sounds amazing. I wanted to go to Nottinghill Carnvial on my birthday a few years ago but enver did. I wish i could it looks amazing...

I also had a car crash on wednesday which i wrote my car off in. It was pretty bad, had to cliimb through window to get out, head on collioson.
I cant wait for uni to start again, i feel it is putting a strain on my relationship not only with alex but my family. I need my own space, and i need my own freedom to do what i want when i want. I hate that i have to arrange to see my own boyfriend, it looses the romance in things.

Tuesday

Birthday Blues.

Its my 21st in 3 weeks. My boyfriend, 2 best friends from home can not make it they are away on holiday or just cant, and my uni mates are scattered across europe and beyond! Like my 18th i can see myself in bed by midnight, eating birthday cake with my hands.
Its so disheartening when for everyone elses birthday i make such an effort.

Cupcakes.


cupcakes are the best things in the world. My friend had some for her 21st, and now i have decided for mine i want a cupcake party. I have been baking recently with my man, he loves it more than me. I love icing and pretty things, even ediable butterflies, and oi have been getting my stitching out aswell! I think i will make a good mum one day...
