Chapter 27, presents & Amsterdam

On November 3rd I turned 27. I know, i know.. apparently I don’t look so old and while we're on this topic can I just point out that it’s amazing how time flys and feels like I left school yesterday! Nevertheless this birthday was a little different and I would like to say it was one of the best birthdays ever which seems a little OTT but I personally think it was probably because i've enjoyed this year so much.

Celebrations began on October 31st and although i've been told it's bad luck celebrating something before it happens, I believe in the law of attraction so no bad thoughts or vibes were there whilst celebrating.

I was taken to dinner at Duck and Waffle in London and had a great evening, after this was over my presents came along with instructions of the order to open them in. My card had a list for the 5 presents and reasons behind them. This was the most important to me as gifts are nice but when someone puts thought into getting them thats what means the most to me.

Originally I wanted to go long haul for my birthday but after asking a few friends at such short notice it was a bit much to expect them to pack up and leave without much planning so i chose a city break in Amsterdam instead. Your'e probably assuming I smoke but i don't No i don’t but it seemed like a cool destination and it definitely was.

 I took a flight on my birthday afternoon and met a friend at the airport as she landed before me, we made our way to The Park Plaza Victoria, a beautiful hotel in central Amsterdam. everything was literally a stones throw away. 

These beautiful roses were in my room awaiting my arrival along with this champagne and stormzy's "birthday girl" lyrics on the tags. 27 Roses for my 27th.

The hotel had extremely attentive staff who were always more than happy to help, along with amazing facilities such as a 24 hour indoor swimming pool, sauna and gym that I most certainly made the most of. (excluding the gym)

I’m grateful that I was able to have this experience and for those that were able to share it with me. The people I have in my life are everything to me which is what made my day so special and I’m extremely thankful for them. 

Thank you to everybody else that wished me a Happy Birthday whether it was a text, a card or a message under my pictures on social media. Chapter 26 was indescribable and I’m ready to make Chapter 27 even better, who’s with me?

talk soon,
