I turned 21 on Friday, and thanks to the amazing people in my life, it was the best birthday I’ve ever had. I’ve never really had a good birthday before but this year, despite it not going according to plan (at all), it was so much fun.
On Thursday morning, I found out that the actual Iron Throne from Game of Thrones was in Sandton City for a few days, so I immediately dropped everything and went!
I’m so glad I had the time to go and see it. It was definitely worth it!
On Friday, I went for breakfast with my mother at a cute cafe near our house. Afterwards, the family gave me my presents, which included a beautiful antique vanity cabinet that I had my eye on for a while, and some Inglot makeup!
My boyfriend arrived around noon (he had taken the day off work) and we went to Ocean Basket for cocktails and lunch. When we got home, he helped me rearrange my room so that the vanity cabinet would fit and then we had a picnic outside in the garden until late. Unfortunately he couldn’t give me my present because the post office has been on strike for almost 2 months, and my present is stuck there, but he bought me beautiful roses and showed me what he bought me:
I really hope the corset arrives soon! I’m so excited to wear it for the first time!
On Saturday morning I had breakfast with my father at a retro restaurant in Lynnwood Bridge. After that, my boyfriend and me went to Sexpo, which honestly was a huge disappointment, but it was our first time going, so at least we know now. That evening, we went to Dark Noise’s Witches & Warlocks Party. It was a very quiet event, but all my friends were there, including some who drove almost an hour to be there and we had lots of fun. I also took my brother with because he was turning 18 on Sunday.
Sunday was basically my recovery day and time to finish projects for university, so I stayed in bed all day.
Thank you to everyone who made this weekend wonderful!
