Turning 22 - Becoming a grown up certainly has its benefits!

Hello my lovelies! Firstly - sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry! I have been an awful blogger being absent for over a week now, this is to do with the new job taking all my energy completely out of me, then being given two interviews for Teacher Training next week and other bits and pieces. Pathetic excuses really, as know everyone has so much work going on, but still its my pathetic excuse for not writing in over a week again!
Skipping merrily along, secondly, as some of you know I turned 22 last week. I have officially passed the age of 'I'm young-free-no-responsibilities' life that I had a year ago in university and am now a responsible (well, responsible-ish) adult with a responsible (patience-trying) job and a career plan. How the times have changed! However, some of the student still lives on with dying my hair back to red, dressing like I did when attending uni (although slightly more formal...) and being mistaken for a student on a daily basis! 
Anyway, here is the way to be eased into moving from the golden age of 18-21 tick box...

 From the boyfriend's parents - Winnie the Pooh stickers, pinboard and chocolate :)

 One of the besties bought me tickets to see The Lion King, which was an awesome day out with The Three Musketeers :D
 My lovely new red hat from big brother!

 Benefit Make-Up from the PSM and parents! These are definitely the things that make me able to go into school and not frighten the pupils as much! Reviews to come but so far they are all amazing!

 The cookie birthday cake made by the boyfriend - AMAZING!

 Pandora charms galore from the boyfriend & parents - such a spoilt girl :)

 My own personalised copy of 'Alice in Wonderland' - one of the most awesome things I own!

 My new 'Fairytale Carriage' charm from the boyfriend, and the glass blue flower charm from my grandma!

 Chamilia 'Tigger' charm and blue glass charm from my parents, and penguin, polka dot and shoe charm from the PSM.

 Family birthday cake :) 

So those are only some of the pictures, but shows what an amazing haul I received on my birthday! I was a truly spoilt girl, and loved everything I received along with my new MAC foundation and two new dresses! I'll take pictures of these for a later post, but very much in love with my new dresses - wearing one currently and to give you an idea it has a polka dot silk bow tie and large peter pan collar... 

So the next posts coming up will be about: Christmas Times in Canterbury & London, New Dresses and Thanksgiving Times. 

How is everyone's week going? What do you think of Pandora?
