T R A V E L
As some of you may know my birthday was on the 9th of May and I turned 21! anddddd… I don’t feel any different lol! just joking, I feel like I am a woman now and in America i would be able to drink! This post is literally going to be like a vlog, but In picture form so it may be all over the place.
Anyway, if you don’t follow me on Instagram and snapchat (sophiatranterxx), you most definitely should as I share a lot on my stories!
So my boyfriend and myself do this thing, for our birthdays we do each other a birthday breakfast which means that we can have WHATEVER we want for breakfast and the other one has to make it. This year I had pancakes, with fruit and strawberry sauce. I then also had a skinny iced hazelnut coffee with that, as I am currently obsessed with it!
For my birthday, my mum very kindly surprised me with a spa day. So we got up super early and we headed to Bannatyne Spa in Ashford. We had 4 treatments, so we had a back massage, a face massage and a hand and arm massage. We then got a manicure and had afternoon tea. I just wanted to say, thank you to the two girls who gave us the best massages ever!
We were given a bag with a towel, flip flops and a robe inside to wear around the spa. We were allowed to keep the bag and the flip flops after, which was really lovely. The first thing we had done was like a lava stone chair thingie, and basically you sit on it and it is really warm on your back which is meant to be really good for you. My mum loved this one, she nearly fell asleep!
Then after this, we were called into this lovely chilled room where we were going to have our treatments done. As you walked in, they had calming music playing and it was so dark. Below are pictures of my bed that I was laying in while having these treatments done. Each treatment was 15 minutes and it was the best hour of my life lol.
My mum was in the bed next to me and I had such an amazing day with my mum.
You have to wear a swimming costume or bikini when you are in the spa, and this is the one that I wore. It is from Primark and I love it!
We had our back massage and it was the best thing ever. It was so relaxing! we then had an arm and hand massage and then we had a face massage. They were all so amazing and the two girls who did our massages were really lovely and kind. After this, we then got our nails done.
This is the colour that I went for! and it is GREAT!
I brought one of the products that Lily used on my face when she did my facial. I brought the Elemis ginseng toner and it is really good and very quickly became one of my favourite skincare products. I have been using it since I got it and I have been really enjoying using it.
After this we then had afternoon tea and… tell me that the picture below doesn’t make you happy.
RIGHT?! this picture makes me so happy because there is a lot of good food here. So we had little cakes and the little chocolate brownies you see on top there, with the raspberries, OMG.. BEST THING IN MY LIFE. They weren’t even brownies, they were just like a clump of chocolate that was goodie and just so YUMMY. Then we also had some scones and some yummy sandwiches!
The tea was so lovely and this made us feel even more relaxed after and it was a great touch to the morning so far.
After the spa, we then went home and started to get ready as we were going out for a meal. We went to Jamie’s Italian at Bluewater, which is a shopping centre in Kent and the food was delicious. I had a pizza (OBVS), had a couple of cocktails and had some squid! Do you like squid? because I love it!
This is what I wore…
After we had eaten, the lights got dimmer and they brought my cake out. I didn’t know this was happening and had no clue that my mum got a cake made for me..
I AM OBSESSED! I love it so much and was so happy with this cake. If you know me then you know that I am the biggest Harry Potter fan ever and this cake made me so so so happy! the lady who made it, did such an amazing job and I couldn’t thank her enough. She is really good at making cakes and she also made my sisters baby shower cake.
After the meal we all went home and were so full that we were feeling kind of sleepy! we just relaxed for the rest of the night. My room was such a mess because, let me tell you why.. I got so much stuff that I didn’t know where to put it all. I was struggling because my bed was full, I mean FULL of presents and I had been completely spoilt. After trying to put the presents to one side, I got into bed and I was sooo happy.
I had the best birthday ever and I got very spoilt! I will always remember this day. Thank you so much again to all of my family for making my 21st so special! my mum is the best person in this world so if you are reading mum, thank you again! my mum made my birthday the most special day ever and she put so much hard work into the day. Thank you to everyone also who commented on my Instagram pictures and on my Facebook wall. I was SO overwhelmed with the amount of likes and comments on my Instagram pictures that day. I received a lot of love and it made me very happy.
Do you have a special birthday that you will always remember?
