There’s nothing like November

In my world, there’s no such thing as a calm November. It’s the stormy month, and it’s the birthday month, and I absolutely love it. Myself and two of my best friends had our birthdays one weekend after the other, so we celebrated with a joint party at Laura’s parents’ house back home in Falkirk. That was a brilliant night, completely chilled out and just what I needed before the grand finale the following weekend.

This weekend, I turned 23 the same day as I graduated with a Masters degree from The University of Edinburgh. The following morning (after partying till the AM), I was dashing off to a stunning Scottish castle to be bridesmaid for one of my best friends from uni, and my old flatmate, Jenny.

With everything from confetti balloons, to mojito birthday cakes and ring-bearing owls, I thought I’d share with you my mad November in pictures…
