March Goals

If I was being really honest about March goals one of them would be to pick me up some new clothes. Like the women’s joggers from Jack Wills as I am dying for a new pair of sweats. But I want to maintain some sort of ambition in March so I’ve had a little think about what I want to achieve next month.  AKA I don’t want to sit on my bum all month seeing how much of Netflix I can get through. Spoiler: it’s a lot.

I started 2018 with a spring in my step ~ like I do every year ~ and surprisingly I haven’t lost my footing just yet. Yes I’m still awful at budgeting and sometimes I can’t remember the last time I ate a vegetable (no one tell my mum lol) but I haven’t lost my zest for 2018 just yet. So in the spirit of positivity, the fact the year is moving incredibly quickly and my April holiday to Ibiza is not that far off anymore, I thought I’d think about March and what I want to achieve

Cheers To The Teenage Years

I am officially a twenty-something. Well barely, I’m just in, but I can finally connect with a huge number of people online who like to categorise themselves in this term – along with not knowing what the fuck you are supposed to be doing.

Whilst I was 19 I had no clue what I was doing but now I’m a twenty-something and I don’t know what I’m doing. Yay! I feel like turning twenty has been coming a long time – the last of my friends to hit the big two-oh and most of my friends are now turned/turning 21 – but I do feel a bit sad to be leaving the teenage years behind.

10 Little Things #32

Hiya, this post is the first to come to you from 20 year old Kirsty. Officially in my twenties now ladies and gents. It doesn’t feel any different to being 19 and whilst I am slightly mourning being a teenager no more, I am excited to have finally joined the twenty-something club – if barely.

Aside from obsessing over my age, I’ve had a bit of a bad week. You know days where you just cannot be bothered with anything? Luckily it was reading week so I could avoid going outside but I spent more than I would care to admit of my time slobbed out in bed with some sort of food stain on pyjamas, having a bit of a wail about life.

The Ascension Of Melanie Winters

From the age of 12 till about 16, I exclusively read science fiction & supernatural novels. It started with the Twilight books that took my generation by a storm and I fell into a hole of stories filled with the most magical and crazy things that would never happen in real life.

I’m still yet to meet a sparkling vampire who only drinks animal blood and can read my mind, but like, whatever. As I’ve grown older my reading tastes have grown into a love for thrillers, deep mysteries and non-fiction collections but that doesn’t mean I ignore my reading bug roots and forget all about the science fiction genre.

A Birthday Wish List

The time has come, I’m about to turn another year older. I’m finally saying goodbye to my teenage years and entering the next decade of my life ~ what the actual flippity, flipping hell. I though I’d whip together a wish list of all the things I kinda fancy for my birthday and might treat myself too because it’s my birthday.

It gives me an excuse to trawl the likes of ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Etsy for all the pretty things because I’m a bit of a magpie and like shiny things. Urban Outfitters is probably my favourite shop right now for everything ~ fashion, accessories and interiors and everything in that store sings to me.
