Hindsight is a beautiful thing. I wrote a post way back in 2015 titled ‘Why I Dislike My Birthday’. Fast forward 2019, growing up a little and embracing the what life has thrown at me, I’m ready for my next chapter… that being 29. Part of me is like ‘OMG I haven’t achieved anything’ and the other half is like ‘You should be so proud of what you’ve done’.
This year I wanted to spend my birthday at a spa but spas in London are overpriced (I’m talking £200 plus) so I thought, what is the one thing that makes me happy? Travel of course. So me being me, I booked a flight. There’s nothing like spending your birthday being totally selfish and doing exactly what you want to do… It’s your day after all.
I no longer desire to have a huge gathering, inviting people because they’d invited me previously, I want to be still, take in the moment and breathe.
The same goes for my friend’s birthdays. They serve as reminders to celebrate their lives and relish in their company. They’re not there for comparison to as society says we should be doing. I gave the wine glasses below inscribed with lyrics from the legendary Notorious BIG which sum up our love for Hip Hop and a refection of how far we’ve come.
You can find these beautiful Bordeaux glasses here. You didn’t hear it from me but they hold a whole bottle of wine each…

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
