34 things I have learnt in 34 years

Since I have just turned 34 I thought it would be good to tell you some things I have learnt in those years that I think are lessons for life and can apply to anyone of any age too.

Feel free to take note of these on paper or your phone

Ok so let’s jump right in

1. Not to be afraid of where you live

2. Nobody is perfect

3. Time stops for nobody

4. Never judge someone by face value

5. Take life one step at a time, don’t rush it.

6. Older people have valuable advice…that’s why they get called wise owls

7. Never feel pressured, stand your ground

8. Memories are so very precious, go make them

9. Sometimes it’s worth risking it for a chocolate biscuit

10. Always be proud of who you are

11. Cluttered rooms means cluttered mind

12. Be the friend you’d like to have

13. The first person you fall in love with should always be yourself

14. True friend stand the test of time and distance

15. Budgeting your money will help you in the long run

16. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or advice

17. Document…so you can look back at a later date and reflect

18. Say yes more

19. Spend time with your loved ones…share the love

20. Don’t lose that bit of your inner child

21. Not everyone is going to like you and that’s ok

22. You are not defined by a number

23. Finding out what love and heartbreak feels like and learn from it

24. Thoughts are powerful so make them positive

25. Nobody has their shit together 100% of the time

26. It’s never too late to learn a new skill

27. It’s best to have a handful of great friends than lots of half ass friends

28. Take time for you

29. Don’t ever try to fit in, you were born to stand out

30. Use your creativity and run with it as far as it will go

31. Remember how fortunate you are

32. Life is not a goal it’s a journey

33. Laughter is the best medicine / therapy

34. If it’s not ok it’s not the end

I have so many lessons that I literally would be here all day typing away. Please know that in life you need to have picked up things along the way that makes you think yes that makes so much sense, and then apply them accordingly.

Thanks for stopping by

Hello October my old friend

I’ve waited for you all year October.

I love October because….

  • It is now officially autumn
  • It gets darker sooner so can get all snuggled up under fluffy blankets.
  • It’s my birthday in this month
  • Halloween… When not all the trick or treaters don’t come and there’s sweets left over.

It also not the best month for one reason: I lost my brother last year. So it’s always going to be a little bit sad. But I like to remember the happy times I had with him.

What’s your favourite month and why?

Fierce Female Friday Week 2

This is Hannah who is a mental health nurse by trade, beginning to branch out as a mental health and wellbeing coach.

She’s a mum of 2 and step mum of 4, ages range from 2-18. So home life can be extremely busy,but all good fun.

So let’s get to know Hannah

and what makes her a fierce female

What makes you feel powerful?

I always feel stronger after meditating and finding my inner strength, allowing all the stresses around me melt away. I also look at myself in the mirror and tell myself I am awesome

What 3 strong women do you look up to?

Michelle Obama is an inspiration. I loved reading her autobiography. She is such a down to earth woman who is humbled by all the amazing opportunities that have opened up for her.

Sarah Steckler founder of Mindful Productivity because she is again really down to earth and open about her own struggles through life.

My mum because she has so much confidence in herself. We may not always see eye to eye but her inner strength and conviction is something I aspire to achieve in myself

What advice would you give to someone needing to find their inner fierceness?

I try to remind myself of all the positive things people tell me about myself. And remind myself that if I were to call others all the horrible things I call myself, no one would like me! I highly recommend meditation to help calm the mind and then focus on the positive messages in their life

Please feel free to go follow Hannah on her socials and her blog

Thank you for stopping by… Join me next week to see who else is a fierce female.

Leopard Print Obsession

It’s been a fair few years that I’ve been obsessed with leopard print and I somehow have just added a little handbag, trainers and some boots to it too. So I thought I’d share a few pics I found on my phone and then some pics I took of items I have to hand.Whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter. I’ve got my footwear covered.Over the years I’ve of course took a selfie or two and these feature a bit of leops.Then of course you can’t not accessorise without adding it to the mix. These are my bags and make up pouches.


I don’t think personally it will ever go out of fashion. My mum said it was around in her days and that’s years ago 😂

Do you love or loathe it… I guess it’s not to everyone’s taste

Those Autumn feels

Today it really has felt autumnal, to the point I heard my mum say those magic words

“Hol, shall we put the heating on?”

Autumn is actually my favourite season. I love how you can get nice and cosy under a blanket with the candles and if you’re lucky enough an open fire and watch all the TV you like.

I have even started looking on Pinterest for fashion inspiration for this colder weather so I thought I’d share a few bits I like with you.

There will be more autumn themed posts throughout Sept and October so keep an eye out

Til next time… Much loves

Monthly favourites August

Summer is nearly over… I am actually secretly glad as I am a lover of wrapping up and all things autumn.

August has been a scorcher again and I’ve got a little tan which is a first for me

As you know my favourites posts I really look forward to writing and seeing what bought me joy that month.

Here is what I’ve been loving

CONFU FOLDING HAIRDRYER

My other hairdryer had lasted a good 4 years which is a record as I kept breaking them at one point.

I didn’t want a super powerful one as my hair is short so I saw this nifty fold up one for £25 and thought it was perfect for when you go away, and it’s rose gold too.

IPAD PENCIL (APPLE DUPE )

5CAF8B49-F48C-448D-AE61-35B2A587113B

So I downloaded a few sketch apps and then thought I can’t do it with my fingers 🙈 silly me and a plain stylus just wasn’t cutting it. So this Apple Pencil dupe for £27 works on my iPad and also my Huawei and I believe it works on a Samsung phone too and probably an iPhone. I really do love it and I believe the actual apple pencil is £129 or there abouts. So a bargain indeed.

MILANI BIGGER LASHES MASCARA

C52C394A-0D97-4399-A8C3-259CF5D8C461

I have been using this mascara over a few months and I have to say for £10 it’s a lot better than the likes of benefit and L’Oréal. It gives me the full lashes I want without using falsies.

WATERMELON ICE LOLLIES

1FB878F4-C864-49CA-813F-508BF80C6876

I’m a sucker for a lolly. No pun intended 🙈

so when we came to do our big shop last week i saw these were on offer £1 for 4 so you can probably guess they didn’t last long.

if you like watermelon and like an ice lolly like me go pick up some of these.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

2F3FE08C-0200-4E45-A68E-B8EA284A3E52

I guess we are all one of a kind…it’s a funny but true quote.

Lastly I thought I’d include a song that I’ve loved singing along to

I mean anything that Ed sings is amazing in my eyes…. Blow is by Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars.

Those so called friends

Do you have those people who you know will be at the end of the phone… If you ring them / message or knock on THEIR door.

But no way would they go out of their way to fit you into their day.

Don’t be made a fool of, or walked over. They’ll make you a laughing stock of you without you knowing.

Be with the ones who will change their plans if you needed them.

The ones who laugh along with you, because they love spending time with you.

Prioritise your people accordingly

Til next time 😘
