Turning 21

I've been umming and aahing about whether I should actually write this post or not. I haven't really written a personal post before. Anyway, I turned 21 about a month ago and it was a fantastic experience - if only I could turn 21 more often!

This will be a picture heavy post about my birthday party and the gifts I received. Also, as another first, I'm going to include some pictures of myself. I've never done that before on my blog, so I'm quite nervous!

(if you follow me on instagram chocolate_squeeze then you'll see some of the same photos here, sorry!)

Soo I had my party before I actually turned 21 due to various reasons. Here's a snap of my hair and makeup done (by myself, of course!), before I threw the dress on!

I'm not sure what that dark shadow on my neck is...maybe from where I was holding my phone!
What's on my face?
Face of Australia primer
Pure Cosmetics mineral foundation
MAC Beauty Powder Blush in Feeling
Maybelline New York Colour Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze
Maybelline New York Master Precise Liner in Black
Ardell Demi Wispies
Arbonne lipstick in Jam

Party accessories

Setting up for my party

I had a photographer at my party, so I thought I'd throw in a few party snaps. The theme was dress to impress...

My two boyfriends. (not really, just the one in the middle)

 My dress was covered in sequins! I bought it off Asos.

 I took a bunch of random props which were a great idea - some photos came out looking really funny! (LOVE the glasses!)

 This is my...sober face?

My gal pals from high school!

Birthday haul! 
Obligatory birthday alcohol, some jewellery, nail polish, wallet, clutch, wine glasses and random bits and bobs...that grey thing at the front is a brain cell - a gift from a friend who I did my bachelors degree with, I thought it was very clever!

Anndd a shiny new Toyota Yaris, courtesy of my parents! She is a bright red beauty. I've had her for a week now and everything is going well. 

Phew. I hope you enjoyed this photo heavy post, a little insight into something about me that isn't so much beauty related. Plus, now you can see what I look like! Do you think I should do more personal posts in the future? 


  1. Aww happy birthday Sarah! You look great! x

  2. Love the car! I've always wanted a Yaris :) great photos I love the dress you worn! You look stunning :)
