TURNING 22


So... I guess I'm 22 now?! Today is my birthday and I couldn't think of a more "me" way to celebrate than by creating the most extra and unnecessary set of birthday themed photos because let's face it... I'm a bit over the top and a typical Leo.
I'm another year older and I feel like this has been the year where I have done the most growing as a person. I am so unsure about a lot of things that are happening in my life but the one thing I have complete confidence and assurance in is the person I am and how I choose to express this to the world. When I look back at photos from birthdays past, I just cringe! They aren't me and they just feel so... fake. You always want to look your best on your birthday because these are memories that you will have for the rest of your life. I was trying to "fit in" for the sake of a day and not stay true to who I am. If this year has taught me anything, it's that I should be proud of the person I have become and the way I look because I have been through hell this year and have somehow managed to come out the other side. My life has been a bit of a rollercoaster this past year and whilst I loved being 21, there was so much that happened that was probably the worst moments of my life. There have been times this year where I questioned who I was, how I looked and just felt pretty worthless. It was so difficult and painful to even remember such a dark time but I am slowly getting better, being kinder to myself and more importantly getting the professional help I need in order to be a better and stronger me.

In a way, this photoset sums up not only how I'm spending my birthday (being the centre of attention) but how I want to spend my year being 22. I feel like I'm finally in a place where I have never felt more comfortable with who I am. I'm ready to fully embrace my sense of style and just rock the shit out of it every damn day! I'm ready to stop apologising for who I am and to stand up for myself. I'm ready to be the true goth queen I know I am inside and take both this and my blog to knew highs this year. Creating content for my blog is when I feel my most me and when I truly am my happiest. This year I want to create my best content and not only that, have the best fun with it! I love being creative and thinking of different locations and getting to try locations I wouldn't necessarily have thought of. Shooting this photoset was probably one of my favourites because I just had the best time being completely extra af and over the top! I got to wear an outfit that I felt insanely cool in, I got to wear a freaking crown because it's my birthday and I WILL be a queen if I want to and just mess around and have a ton of fun! I'm hoping to take this message of just having a bit of fun and being truly myself into this year and hopefully being 22 will be the best year yet!

You guys asked and I delivered! This shoot was so over the top and so insanely extra but I'm an attention seeking Leo - so what did we really expect?! I'm kinda excited for my birthday and being 22. No expectations, embracing being different and to just see where the year takes me! This Goth Queen is ready to be 22.
