Birthday Girl

Chloe7 Chloe4 Chloe8 Chloe2 Chloe5 Chloe3 Chloe9 Chloe6 Chloe1So as I’m sure you’ve guessed today is my Birthday and for the first time in god knows how many years, the sun is shining.

Turning 27 has left me feeling slightly strange, I think it’s the feeling of comfort. With every year I feel like I know a little more about myself and that no matter where each year leads me. Everything will be OK. I remember oh-so-well, how painfully insecure I was this time 10 years ago. How much I cared about what others around me thought. Yet now, it’s difficult for even those who set out to ruin your day (which the internet is so rife with) to do so.

Being a young girl was so hard, the smallest things meant so much, friends betrayed you, boys broke your heart but now I know they were all lessons, preparing you for the strength you’ll need to live a truly wonderful life.

You only realise how far you’ve come, when look back at the footprints you’ve left behind.

    Happy birthday, Lydia! I have no doubt you’re having a lovely day. I cannot get over my jealousy for those gorgeous Chloe boots, what a dream they are!

    Lydia what you said is so inspiring and I recognize a lot of myself in it when I was younger. I’ve turned 27 too recently and I’m so much happier with myself at this age than I was 5 or 10 years ago. I really believe it all has to do with self-confidence. Happy birthday to you & I hope you have a lovely day – and that your blog will continue to inspire me for years to come! <3

    First of all, happy birthday!
    And I must say, the entire time I have been reading your blog I have always thought that you are about 22-23 years old.
    You have aged well!

    All the best!
