What's it been like during my first few weeks of being twenty-one, I hear you ask? Well life has been just the same, I have to say. Turning twenty was a massive transition for me, so I had a feelin' that this birthday things would remain just the same. My confidence has taken a bit of a dip recently, but as I've said before, I've really come into my own and and have been so much more content with my life since I've been in my twenties, so I'm hoping things continue this way for the year ahead. But, celebrating my twenty-first birthday finally gave me the opportunity to take pictures against this particular backdrop! Just a stone throw away from mine and my mum's flat, I walk past 'No. 21' almost every day and for the last seven years or so said to myself that I would shoot pictures here when I reach that age. It's been a long time coming, but it was most certainly worth the wait. Love, Jazmine.

  4. You're gorgeous and so is your outfit! And what a lovely story behind the fitting backdrop. I'm in the same boat....I'm turning twenty-one this year as well so it's quite frightening but exciting at the same time.

  26. Absolutely love this post Jaz, your photos are beautiful and I adore the composition. So lovely to read about how much more settled and comfortable you feel: I feel the same with regards to being in my twenties. 21 was honestly the best age/year of my life, I learnt so much about myself! Hope to see you very soon lovely one. xx

  35. You look absolutely lovely! The checks are so chic and I love your eyeliner. And what a perfect backdrop for this shoot!

    I feel the same about my twenties-- I feel like a completely different person than I was a year or two ago. While I still have more low days than I'd like to admit, I'm so much happier and confident than I used to be! Reading your blog always makes me feel better though. Your honesty is so refreshing :)

  36. Have you heard? Fashion designer Marc Jacobs is a cruel manipulator. He cruelly tortures a young designer called Angel Barta. He's been using her talent for 5 years. Read the shocking details and spread the truth! http://styleangelique.blogspot.hu/2013/03/marc-jacobs-thief-of-century-who.html
