Birthday Trip to Blenheim Palace

On Tuesday 5th August 2014, I turned 21! I had a stunning few days with friends and family, featuring a night out, a trip to the casino after (I won big, +£2 is a sensible place to stop #gambleresponsibly), an afternoon tea date with the girls and a curry with my Mummy and boyfriend. The birthday celebrations took to the next day in the form of a trip to Blenheim Palace. Fun fact about me: I am obsessed with all places royal and regal. Palaces and stately homes are my thing; ask me about any of the different countries I've been to and you can bet I've squeezed in a trip to the nearest ornate once-lived-in-by-royalty pad. Lo and behold, my boyfriend got dragged to Oxfordshire. A beautiful sunny day, decor to make Marie Antoinette jealous (well, perhaps not), and gardens for miles, take a scroll through the photos below to get your own little look into how the other half (Winston Churchill and an awful lot of Dukes) once lived.

What I'm Wearing - Outfit:
Sunglasses - eBay, leather jacket - ASOS, dress - H&M, shoes - Topshop

What I'm Wearing - Makeup:
Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation, Natural Collection liquid eyeliner, Naked 3 assorted eyeshadows, Urban Decay Perversion mascara, Tanya Burr lipgloss in Afternoon Tea

All of these photographs were taken with my brand new Panasonic Lumix FZ200 bridge camera, which I am absolutely in love with. I hope you've all liked the photos and let me know if you're a fan of a stately day trip or whether I'm just 21 going on 70! Have you ever been to Blenheim Palace? Are there any palaces or stately homes that you think I should visit? Let me know!
