20 THINGS I'VE LEARNT ABOUT MYSELF IN 20 YEARS

Since I recently turned 20, I feel like a know a fair amount about the sort of person I am now... though I definitely don't have my life figured out by any means! I also find posts that allow you to find more about the blogger interesting so thought I'd share 20 things about me here.
I love exploring and travelling - Whether it's a completely different country or even just a new place within somewhere I'm already familiar with, I want to visit as many different places as I can!Learning has always been something I've enjoyed - I actually really liked school but besides that, I just like to learn and expand my knowledge as much as possible.I'm generally a pretty calm and chilled person - Most of the time I'm a very laid back person and don't get easily stressed or angry.I'm a hard worker but also equally good at procrastinating - I always work hard at whatever I do but I would probably get it done much quicker if I didn't procrastinate as much!I e…

EMBARRASSING STORIES FROM MY CHILDHOOD

I always remember reading your typical tween magazines and flicking straight to the 'cringes' section, something about the ridiculous confessions always made me laugh and I thought why not take some inspiration! I'm going to share a few of my own embarrassing stories from my childhood...

1) The first time I saw candyfloss I thought it was a tissue and went to wipe my nose on it - thankfully my mum stopped me!
2) During my first year of school an older kid told me to lick a some poison ivy and I was too scared to stand up to them and did it. But the worst part is I then shut myself in the toilet and prepared myself for the poison to set in...clearly it didn't have quite the expected effect
and I finally accepted that maybe I was overreacting!
3) This one time at Christmas I had finished my chocolate and was jealous that my younger sister still had some left. So I shut her in our parents room and bit her ear just to get her to give me hers. Evil wasn't I!
4) When I was …

A LONG AWAITED TRIP TO BRIGHTON

After seeing the popularity of Brighton grow massively I kept talking about how much I wanted to visit. I have seen so many videos and photos that it was like I already knew my way around! Finally I organised my train tickets and my sister and I headed off on a 3 hour train journey.

Since I knew there were a lot of places I wanted to visit we made sure we grabbed a quick lunch to fuel us for the endless walking to come. We then walked down to the West Pier and ate on the beach with the bandstand and i360 in sight. We then decided to bite the bullet and began walking the mile journey along the beach to Brighton Pier itself and I have to say it didn't disappoint. It was pretty packed with and had a huge range of souvenirs, food and attractions - I of course ensured I took various photos of all angles because if you don't post on social media were you really there? (I hope you got my sarcasm there!) Anyway I proceeded to stroll around, clutching my belongings because even though t…

JULY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Firstly, how are we already in August?! This year seems to have gone so fast and all the months have sort of blurred into one, however I always enjoy reading monthly favourites so here are some of mine for August!

Stationery: Okay, I admit it. I'm a sucker for stationery. I genuinely owe a huge chunk of my revision to Stabilo Boss highlighters. All those endless mind maps were completed using these and somehow it actually helped me to remember a lot of the information. I also enjoy trying to feel and appear organised  (even when I'm not) so these highlighters are something I often grab for. I couldn't not put it in my favourites really...though they may be quietly booted off this list when I receive my results later this month! Pick up a pack of 8 from Amazon using the link at the bottom of this page!
Movie: Troian Bellasario aka (Spencer Hastings) has a new movie out and after loving her in PLL I was intrigued. She is a great actress and this movie conveys a poignant and ed…
