Hello my angels, how's it going? It was my birthday on Tuesday the 9th of May and I can't quite believe that I'm now 22 years of age? It's bonkers. I had the most incredible birthday, surrounded by my family and the ones that mean the most to me. My mum went above and beyond with my gifts (which was totally unnecessary) and made me feel very spoilt and GRATEFUL.

On the morning of my birthday, I sat in bed with my Mummy and opened my presents. She also came into my room with two giant balloons that read 22, that was all I had asked for this year and I got them, so thanks mum haha! Then my Auntie popped over to see me and wished me a happy birthday before we had to get ready for London. 

My mum and I went to my sisters (Gracie) to see her new flat for the first time and to spend the day with her. We also went to Ping Pong for some Dim Sum and sweet mother of god, the food was INSANE, I really, really enjoyed it. Then we went shopping in Westfields before heading home for my BIRTHDAY CAKE!

When I went to sleep that night, my heart felt very full with love and happiness. I always cry on my birthday because I get so overwhelmed by all of the birthday messages and gifts etc. Is anyone else like that or just me? 

Fast forwarding to 3 days later. Me and my two friends took a trip up to Bournemouth for my birthday night out. If you didn't know, Bournemouth is my favourite place in the UK and it holds a special place in my heart as I spent a lot of my childhood there every summer. We were all so excited because we had never taken a trip anywhere with just us three before and it felt like we were in the movie, Crossroads. Plus, Danielle is a Mummy now, so she doesn't get to go out, ever. It was nice that she could let her hair down, just for 24 hours. 

It's safe to say that we had the BEST time ever. We laughed loads, shared secrets, ate, drank, partied and made memories. That is all I wanted for my birthday, to spend it with the people that I know genuinely care about me and document it all. I even had my own personalised snapchat filter that said "Charleigh's 22nd" for the night out, haha.

On the Sunday, we went out to breakfast and then spent the day down the beach and in the arcades. I have always been a water baby and I love being by the ocean, so it was only right that the socks came off, the jeans were rolled up and we had a little paddle in the water. 

Girls, I know you're reading this.. I just want to say a big thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this birthday so memorable and for my gifts. I love you both soooo much and I hope we continue to make memories like this weekend, in the future.
