some advice of mine that i should probably take



There's something about the closing of each Gregorian year that seem's to make us as humans particularly reflective about literally everything and I am no exception. One night recently when I was feeling particularly broody I typed into the notes page of my phone a few things I feel that I learnt this year. Don't get me wrong I'm still a damn mess and I have only put some of these things into practice but the others I like to consider a work in progress. 

1. You probably won't work if you can talk to your friends or family instead, so its probably an excellent idea to go and work somewhere quiet with no distractions.

2. Don't buy food if you have already brought food with you, (even if its a multi-pack chocolate eclairs)  its almost definitely a waste of money. 

3. Start the work the day you get it not the day before its due. 

4. Wash your face at night even if you're not wearing makeup even if your skin is already quite clear wash it and your skin will stay clear and feel fresh and hopefully be 10x penger. Also moisturise. 

5. You don't and shouldn't feel like you have to say yes to everything, if you cant decide in the moment say you'll let them know. 

6. Go to bed earlier, you'll never make it to the end if tomorrow without at least 7 hours. 

7. Plan your breakfast the night before and stop getting baffled by the contents of what your kitchen can provide you in the morning. But for the love of gosh, please eat breakfast. 

8. Layer the fuck up if you don't you will catch a cold, it's the UK not cali. 

9. You will come up with tons more shit ideas than good ones keep working there is a diamond amongst those. Work through the creative block and magic happens.

10. Don't idolise a boy he's probably brilliant but he's also just a boy not necessarily better than you, not necessarily worth more than you. chill the fuck out and focus on you, you're pretty brilliant too, love will find you someday.

  3. This is a fantastic list, and I am all about setting goals. Washing my face is sometimes a struggle because depression kills your motivation to do just about anything, especially the little things like preventing your skin from breaking out. I especially love no. 10: "Don't idolise a boy he's probably brilliant but he's also just a boy not necessarily better than you, not necessarily worth more than you. chill the fuck out and focus on you, you're pretty brilliant too, love will find you someday." Yes girl!!! That one is SO relevant to my life right now and something I definitely have to frequently remind myself. I wish you nothing but positivity this year!

  4. What a list! (does that sound middle-aged and sad?) ah I love a good list and this is one of them, number 4 is actually a struggle for me. I could avoid washing my face for the longest time and then be mad when I break out.

  5. lovee this list, literally need to listen to everything on it. I'm getting so bad at saying yes to everything then having to bail last minute. It always makes me seem like I'm super flaky, but I struggle to say no; I find myself being such a people pleaser sometimes. Happy new year my love (sorry it's a little late!) xxx
