AFTER celebrating her 21st birthday with family and friends on Saturday, it was time for Lucy Essex to step out of party mode and head back to work this week.

The bubbly young Maclean woman said she partied in style, kicking off the birthday celebrations in her hometown before venturing to the Yamba Shores Tavern and partying till the early hours.

"It was a really good night," she said.

"My mum and dad helped me plan my party. It took over a month and there was a lot of organising involved."

Lucy admitted that she was spoiled with many gifts and presents form her friends and family on the weekend.

Among the birthday presents were goblet mugs, decorated with the number 21 to celebrate the occasion, gift vouchers and jewellery from her mum.

This week, post birthday celebrations, Lucy said she plans to chill out with her friends and enjoy life as a 21-year-old.

Lucy works at Subway in Grafton Shoppingworld and is currently saving money to travel overseas next year.

She said New Zealand and Europe are the top destinations on her list to visit.

"I have always wanted to travel overseas and I can't wait to go," she said.

"It's going to be so much fun."
