Do you remember when you were five years old and you answered the question “who do you want to be when you grow up?” with the answer “a princess”, “an actress” or “a ballerina”.
When we were 10, we were asked the same questions and our answers would have been along the lines of “a vet”, “a scientist” or “a teacher”.
When we left school, the same questions were drilled into our heads and if you were lucky, you’d have answered with “a lawyer”, “a doctor” or “a police officer”. For those of us who had no idea, we were left to feel inferior and inadequate, as if the fact that we couldn’t make life-changing decisions about our own lives was so completely absurd.
Are we supposed to know what we want to do when we grow up simply just because we are considered to be ‘grown up’? My latest post is all about figuring out who I want to be when I grow up and whether our life choices need to always be set in stone.
So far this year has been incredible already and I’m so unbelievably excited for the rest of 2018.
I’ve always been one to make lists and I always love to have things to look forward to, especially if life is feeling a bit ‘bleh’ at any point.
I’ve put together a list of all the things I’m looking forward to this year and I’m sure you’ll be hearing all about my adventures over on this little corner of the ‘net.
The second installment of my travel wishlist posts is all about the various places in Asia that I want to visit. Matt and I are planning on travelling around the world next year and there are a number of countries in Asia that are high up on our list.
Asia is such a huge continent and there’s an abundance of beautiful things to see; I can’t wait to see all the pretty beaches, indulge in the most glorious dishes and experience so many different cultures.
Here’s my ultimate Asian travel wishlist.
For me, perfume is one of those beauty items that can be tailored to each individual person as every scent smells different on each person.
I’ve always been a huge fan of perfume, ever since my early teen years when I wore the likes of So…? and the Harajuku lovers collection – do you guys remember these?! They were the cutest little bottles and they smelled incredible!
My perfume collection today is a little more sophisticated and includes fragrances from the likes of Marc Jacobs and Chloé.
Change is a concept that intimidates almost everyone; it’s the fear of the unknown, the scary possibilities of what’s to come and the uncertainty of the future.
The concept of change used to be something that would scare the absolute crap out of me; can you even imagine going into something totally blind and not knowing what was going to happen?!
But in the last few years, I’ve become incredibly accustomed to change, I’ve even come to love it and embrace anything new that appears in my life. Which is why today’s post is all about learning to embrace change and accepting that it doesn’t always have to be terrifying.
