You live, and you learn


  1. Wanting to be someone else can turn into an unhealthy obsession; be yourself, don’t feel you have to compete with other people.
  2. Pizza is always the answer, there doesn’t even need to be a question!
  3. All relationships should be balanced; give and take are key 50/50.
  4. Obsession about anything isn’t healthy.
  5. Being good at doing your own makeup is a skill you will perfect over the years. 14 year old me did not have a clue! 23 year old me still doesn’t really, but at least she doesn’t use Miss Sporty foundation anymore.
  6. Not everybody should go to University.
  7. Don’t be that person that always flakes on plans.
  8. Keep true to your word, if you say you’re going to do something then you bloody well better do it.
  9. Read often.
  10. Be polite always.
  11. Always remember your P’s and Q’s.
  12. If you ever make a mistake just own up to it before it’s too late.
  13. Honesty is the best policy…most of the time; although people don’t always appreciate the truth, but that’s just human nature.
  14. Travel on a budget and travel at a cost.
  15. If you’re not sure about how to do something don’t be afraid to ask for help.
  16. Live both for the moment and the future.
  17. Money is great but having time to spend with yourself or family and friends is even better! Money is not everything!
  18. Find your signature scent; perfume is delightful.
  19. Always be kindest to those closet to you.
  20. Always try to be happy for people even if their choice isn’t necessarily the choice you would take. Sometimes your opinion is not needed, learn when to be quiet.
  21. Never dumb yourself down.
  22. Don’t sell yourself short.
  23. It’s OK if you don’t know what you want to do with your life.
  24. You’re never too old to learn something new.
  25. Never ever slut shame or body shame.
  26. Don’t expect others to do things for you. As the saying goes “If you want something doing, do it yourself”.
  27. LOVE YOURSELF (in a none self involved way of course.)
  28. Cocktails, cocktails and more cocktails.

A few of these rules i already follow, and a few of these I’ve decided to follow from today! I will hold my hands up to not following a few of these in the past, but i feel in order to lead a truly positive life i need to change the way i think and the way i am.

You may not agree with my rules so i would love to know about any rules or mantras you follow in your life!
