Learning To Live Alone

Whilst growing up, I realised how important it is to enjoy your own company. Many childhoods are filled with constantly being surrounded by people, whether that be at school, going to your friends' house for tea, spending time with your family around the dinner table, drinking a litre of cider in the park, that cost £3 and you had to convince your older sibling to buy because you were underage, to doing your weekly food shop with your university housemates. 

Only a snapshot of moments from your adolescence are spent alone, and to be frank, they're probably your lowest moments - for me this means shutting yourself away in your bedroom and crying because things are getting that little bit too much, to sitting in silence stressing about an essay that's due faster than words you can type.

2017 So Far

I want to start this post by saying, how on earth is it nearly August???? I know everyone says this, but I cannot believe how bloody fast this year is going. Everything is flashing before my eyes which is completely overwhelming. 

Recently, my anxiety is all over the place. I've literally been up and down like a yo-yo and had no idea why. Thinking about it now, it could potentially be because time is flying by and I feel like I don't have control of it. Now I'm working 9-5, I do tend to find myself living for the weekend - despite trying to fill my weeknight evenings after reading Sophie's post and always hating the idea for only truly fulfilling two days of a week. I feel like time is slipping through my fingers. 

Because of this, I decided to do a reflection post of 2017 so far. At the beginning of the year, I wrote a post about my goals for the year

My LVL Experience at House of Beauty

For my entire life, I have always been envious of people who have long, lucious lashes - it's something that I definitely wasn't blessed with growing up.. Instead, I was blessed with short, straight eyelashes, that cannot hold a curl. Another thing I wasn't blessed with, was the ability to apply false eyelashes. My eyes are always too small for lash sizes, and despite my attempts of cutting them to size, they would never hold to my eyes, or start to fall off about an hour after wear. I have tried various styles, brands and sizes of lashes, but nothing ever lasts long. So I gave up, and instead I learned to live with the lashes I was given, until... 

I found the LVL Lash Lift!!

Why I Value Friendships I've Created Through Blogging

When you're a child, you can't wait to grow up. The thought of living with your friends, or on your own sounds amazing, finding a boyfriend/girlfriend and falling in love is the absolutely dream, and the thought of having your own house and spending weekends decorating with your loved one is something you spend hours daydreaming about.. When in reality, adulthood is pretty bloody difficult isn't it.. Of course, there are tons of incredible moments, but I think every single one of us sometimes daydreams about how simple life was back then.. instead of worrying about if you'll ever be able to buy a house, which party to vote for in the election, or if you'll be stuck in the job, that is bareale, but not the job you dreamed it would be..

I think the most prominent thing changes between being a child and an adult, (apart from the obvious things of course) is the ability to make friends. When you're a child it is the easiest thing, you approach someone you like the look of, ask if you can play and there we are, before you know it, you're round their house for chicken nuggets and potato smileys. When you reach adulthood it isn't that easy.. sure you can make friends through work, but they're just your work friends. How often as an adult do you create, genuine and meaningful friendships with a stranger? Barely ever. This is where my blog comes into it.

When I first created my blog, I did it because I was fed up of having no hobbies, I wanted to use my creativity somehow, and be able to express my feelings and opinions on things through an outlet that seems somewhat therapeutic. I first created my blog in 2013, and I never knew how much blogging would grow, and become something that is clearly seen in the mainstream media. One thing, that I didn't ever dream of, is that it would allow me to create some of the most genuine and trustworthy friendships I've ever had.
