My 33rd birthday!

Event – My 33rd Birthday!

June 7th 2019

Wow, this was over a year ago! To think, I’m now 34 and spent this birthday in lockdown. I believe that’s how most Australians have spent their birthday this year!

I decided to spoil myself for my birthday. M and I had already started to plan what I was going to do for my birthday before he passed, but I didn’t feel right doing any of that, so I decided to just let myself go and have as much fun as I could!

My 33rd Birthday!

I booked a hotel in the city for two nights! Melbourne is full of amazing places to stay but I decided on the Rendezvous Melbourne because it’s close to Flinders Street Station. I had a birthday party planned for Friday night, so I booked for Thursday to Saturday. I wanted to get in and have time to explore the city before my party and then not have to worry about getting home afterwards.

Finding a venue in the city was hard. So many places you had to pre-book and pay a decent deposit. I couldn’t afford that, but after searching around and contacting a few places, I found The Lame Duck. Lets just say, I hit the jackpot! The Lame Duck was everything I could have wanted and more!

Plus size alternative birthday outfit

June in Melbourne = Cold! This coat was a birthday present from my parents. It’s so soft and beautiful! I saw it in a Myer store and fell in love. Stalked it online until it went on sale and snapped it up. It also came in leopard print, but I figured the black was more classic and would get more wear.

My friends and I

It was great being surrounded by friends! I, of course, had the huge worry no one would turn up, but all up if I remember correctly, I had 11 people turn up (including myself). Including my longest friend Kylie, who I’ve known since I was like 5! We were neighbours for most of our early lives. I was super lucky she was in Melbourne at the time! (That is her and I in the photo booth picture at the start of the post!)

Now, the Lame Duck, as I mentioned, was THE BEST! It was a retro, neon bar with a pool table, photo booth and celebrity cutouts. The DJ played a fantabulous array of 70’s and 80’s music. Exactly my jam. I’m usually not much of a drinker, but I let my hair down and got quite drunk. Their cocktails were A+

All in all, I had a brilliant birthday celebration! I was spoiled by my friends and felt extremely loved!
