Photo Every Hour: Birthday Edition

On the 22nd February I celebrated my 22nd birthday, as it was a Sunday I decided I wanted to spend my day in the most relaxed way possible and just chill and enjoy myself. My day consisted of food, naps, and lots of cuddles and was spent with my boyfriend Josh. I thought it might be a nice idea to do my first Photo Every Hour post and document my day, the idea behind this is you take a photo for every hour that you're awake, so without further ado, here is my birthday!

Breakfast in bed while watching an episode of the American Office that I love where Jim & Pam get married. 

Opening cards and presents from my family and friends. 

Two of my favourite things; putting on makeup and watching Josh play Alien Isolation on Playstation. 

Cuddles! And a bit more Alien playing. 

Lunchtime trip to Caffe Nero for a caramel latte, brie and bacon panini and a slice of red velvet cake, it is my birthday after all! 

Back to Josh's and into my super cute and comfy cat PJs from my mum, then chill out with a book, my favourite chocolates and a Tropicana. 

After being ditched while he did some work I summoned the boyfriend back for more cuddles!

If you can't have a nap on your birthday then when can you?! 

Waking up from my nap and catching up on some youtube videos, with a few cheeky Lindt balls of course. 

A phone call from my mum while Josh plays a bit of Fifa until I forced him off. 

And sent him to make dinner! Although I don't feel to bad because it was just a chuck in the oven job we'd picked up from M&S, but it was so tasty! 

Not as tasty as this beautiful chocolate and vanilla cheesecake. Heaven! No candles to blow out though. 

I ended the day back at my house where I put on my fairy lights, lit a candle and got cosy in bed with my book ready for an early night and a good sleep. 

It may not look like the most exciting birthday but it was exactly what I wanted and perfect for me. I couldn't have asked for a better day. Let me know if you enjoy these Photo Every Hour posts, I'd love to do more and as Im super nosey I'd love to see what you guys get up to in a day!

  15. When was your birthday? Did I wish you a happy one? If not Happy Birthday!
    Sometimes you don't want a hectic day and just want to lounge about with a slice (or 6) of cake. I hope you had a lovely day and saved me some of those cheeky Lindt balls ;)
