25 Things I’ve Leant In The Last 25 Years!

Dress: Coast | Shoes: ASOS (similar here)

Today I’m turning 25 (eeeeeep – birthday squeal!) I’ve booked myself in for a spa day by myself so I can relax for the day then I’ll be spending the evening with my closest friends and family… bliss! This year has thrown a few unexpected curveballs at me, but we learn and grow from everything that happens in our life. I have a feeling that 25 is going to be my year (here’s to hoping anyway!), here’s 25 things I’ve learnt in my time on this planet…

1.) Life isn’t always as black and white as it seems

2.) I love making lists (it’s a Virgo thing apaz!)

3.) Sometimes it pays off when we take risks, even when people doubt you, never doubt yourself

4.) Game of Thrones is the best series… EVER

5.) My time keeping is still appalling 

6.) Wanderlust is apparently real kids!

7.) The grass isn’t always greener.. true story!

8.) Kisstory will always have a place in my heart

9.) Hoes really ARE before bros (sass hand emoji)

10.) No matter how many times I watch The Green Mile / Titanic I will always cry

11.) True happiness comes from within

12.) I was destined to marry Tom Hardy and have his babies, I just haven’t figured out why it hasn’t happened yet!

13.) Being a basic is not cool, nada!

14.) I’m not as girly as I once thought and apparently I love wearing trainers, a lot!

15.) People use you as stepping stones for their own success, but it makes you quickly realise who your trues friends are!

16.) I’ll always be a daddy’s girl

17.) Dirty Dancing will forever be my favourite film, because well, nobody puts baby in the corner!

18.) I still can’t walk in heels

19.) Taking a bold career move led me to working my once hobby as a job – eeeeeep!

20.) Reading in the sunshine is my favourite pastime, ever!

21.) I’m addicted to stationary

22.) Peanut butter will always be my weakness

23.) I actually love spending time by myself, that solo trip was one of the best decisions I’ve made and I can’t wait to go again. Alone time is important and not as scary as I once thought

24.) I really do have the best family and friends, and for that I’m forever grateful!

25.) The world really is my oyster! <3

Now, I’m off to the spa to be pampered and enjoy some alone time before the gang descend!
