My 22nd Birthday in Pictures

Happy 1st December everyone and happy start of Blogmas – I’m not going the whole hog but I will be posting more frequently, ‘Imogen’s 12 Days of Blogmas’ style!

As you may know I turned the ripe old age of 22 on Tuesday and I wanted to share some photographs from all of my celebrations.

My Celebrations:

I came home the weekend before my birthday and went out for dinner at Tosca with my family, the meal was AMAZING. We finished the evening by watching ‘The Holiday’ – one of my absolute favourite films. On the Sunday morning my Mum, Dad and I all went for breakfast and my Auntie turned up as a surprise. In the afternoon we played the game ‘Dos’ (the new version of Uno) and ate numerous helpings of Colin the Caterpillar cake and Connie’s too!

On my actual birthday I was in University 9-5 (unfortunately) but I managed to make the best out of a ‘bad’ situation. Some friends and I went out to GBK for lunch and my friend Jas surprised me with the NICEST cake! It was raspberry and chocolate, I even got free onion rings as it was my birthday! I was thoroughly spoilt with presents and goodies from friends and family and even came back to a flat full of balloons and banners. Cameron had been busy decorating whilst I was at uni!

I ended the day going out for a lovely (very large) meal at Zizzi’s with Cameron and skyped my sister in Canada to open my birthday presents! I honestly had such a good birthday and I am so grateful to each and everyone of my friends and family who made it so special. The fact Cameron also bought a SECOND Colin the Caterpillar cake was an amazing surprise too!

Cue multiple photographs of me with cake!

I hope you all enjoyed this different style of post and seeing all the photographs from my birthday celebrations. I am aiming to post more frequently throughout December and already have some very exciting posts lined up so be sure to check out my blog more often.

      That’s so right, I don’t mind really, especially as this year I would have been sat on my own in an empty flat! I didn’t like the year I had an exam on my birthday though – no thank you! Thank you so much, have an amazing holiday season too! x

  9. Looks like you had such a good birthday! All the photos are so cute! I wouldn’t mind having uni on my birthday, in all honesty. My degree means we get half terms and mine in in May half term so I never get to see any of my uni friends. But, we make sure to make up for it when we return haha. Lovely post x

    1. Imogen Chloe says:

      Thank you, ah we get half terms as well but my birthday is always during normal term time. That’s nice you still celebrate with uni friends though! xx
