19 Things I’ve Learnt In 19 Years…

Firstly, I hope my readers have had the best Christmas! I apologise for my absence (it’s been 2 whole weeks infact) but this Christmas break I’ve been quite ill twice, trying to get college work done, as well as have a break and see friends and family, which has left no time to really do anything interesting let alone even get dressed out of PJs! (Unless you do want PJ outfit posts, because I could easily get at least 5 of those out within the week… I wonder how many readers I’ll get for that?!)

As you are reading this, it is my 19th birthday, so I decided that today was the day to maybe do a slightly different post in order to celebrate it and get a lot more personal than I usually do also by sharing 19 thing I’ve learnt 19 years. I thought I’d also share some pictures from over the years too kind of for myself to look over and rediscover to see how I’ve changed over the years and my time blogging, considering I’ve been running a blog since the age of 13! (Some are even from my old blog meaning bad eyebrows! Oh’ and they are not in age order either.) Enjoy.

1. Life’s too short to care

2. Take risks & be brave

3. Never be ashamed of doing something you love

(Although part of me thought it was so proud of myself for the paper wanting to run a piece about my blog, part of me dreaded that everyone from my school would see it, which is not okay because I worked really hard for it.)

4. You don’t have to see your friends everyday for them to be your friends

5. Be honest

6. There is more to life than school- honestly, in hindsight, it’s nothing

7. It’s okay to not know what you want to do & change your mind

8. It’s also okay to put work last & have a life

9. Say yes! (When appropriate)

10. Make the most of every memory

11. Take lots of photos of them & do more with them than upload them to Instagram

12. Appreciate all who love you

15. You have to make fashion & make-up mistakes

16. And general mistakes

19. Moisturising is important

(Bet you thought I was going to end on something profound didn’t you? I just couldn’t deal with how deep this post was all getting!)

I hope you enjoyed this different, and slightly shorter post due to me being so busy. My plan for my 19th year is to 1) buy my blog name and due to that, 2) put so much more into growing this blog, and really enjoying it.

Until next time,

Maisie x
