My 19th Birthday in St Thomas!

On the 27th January I turned 19. I know I don’t look it, I could probably still pass for under 16, but hey let’s no get into that.  I thought that a ‘What I got for My Birthday’, would be quite good, as I’m trying to be more active, and do a wider range of posts, so lifestyle seemed like a good direction to go in.

So as well as doing a ‘What I Got’, I thought I’d include a little, ‘What I Did’. As it was an amazing holiday, and any chance to talk about it I am taking. So expect a lot of pictures!

 The Start of the Day

 The day started by going into my mum’s cabin to open my cards, as we’d brought them all with us just so there was something to open on the actual day, and I was surprised with some lovely gifts that my family had brought with them too.

From my mum I got a Pandora charm. It’s a cute little present with pink detailing. I had been eyeing this up over Christmas time, as I love the pink detailing, and the little heart that is attached to it.

From my mum’s fiancé, I received a necklace on a rose gold chain that has my birth stone attached to it. I love stuff like this, as I like the colour of my birth stone which is Garnet. It is so pretty and dainty, which will be nice for everyday wear.

I then received a gift card for River Island, which I can’t wait to spend, as I don’t tend to shop in there a lot, as the prices scare me a little, for some reason I’ll happily spend loads on makeup, but I just can’t do the same for clothes.

In St Thomas 

For the day we were docked in St Thomas, which is a beautiful island, and I mean beautiful.

When we first arrived we took a sky ride to the top of a mountain. The views just got even better. There were a couple of shops that sold little souvenirs, as well as a little place that sold drinks that were delicious. I had a raspberry smoothie and it was the best.

On the way back to the ship I was treated to a new perfume, as I actually don’t have that many.

Later in the day we went on a little sunset cruise, which was a little boat with other people from our ship and a few from other ones, which turned out to be more of a booze cruise, which wasn’t fun. I was the youngest on there by far, so it wasn’t great, but still really nice to the sunset.

Birthday Meal

We ate in the Italian in the evening, as I am a sucker Italian food. Let’s just brush over the fact that I had steak. I did get a little cake brought out, which said ‘Happy Birthday’ in chocolate, whilst the waiters sung.

As we didn’t eat the main dining room that night, the waiters in there insisted to sing the next day as well. I’m not one for being centre of attention.

as you can see, I handled it really well

I also got to have a little photo shoot whilst on the cruise as a birthday present. Which to be honest I was kind of dreading. It turned out to be great fun and the photos turned out to be great!

That’s pretty much it. I mean I know this is more of a ramble/ lifestyle post. Which I don’t do a lot of, but I thought it would be fun to do. Especially since it was such a lovely day. I also have a post on what I wore on the formal nights on the holiday.

So yeah, I hope you enjoyed this post. As I definitely enjoyed the day, and would like to thank everyone who made it possible!

Thank you for reading!
