Quarter of a Century


For some reason, it’s such a scary thought that I’m half way to 50. Maybe I’m just over thinking things. Yesterday was the day I’ve reached this milestone. I’m pretty sure I turned 21 just yesterday but that just shows how fast time flies these days. Need to make each day count as at this rate, 30 is just right around the corner. Let’s not think about that just yet.

Oh yes I did celebrate this coming of age in style! Just putting this out there but how nice does my tan look? It’s the little things. I got a lot of compliments wearing this dress from ASOS and heels are an old Zara favourite. I’ve been wearing a Gerard Cosmetics liquid lipstick which I will be reviewing soon. Let’s just say, I love it!

I am grateful for everything and very grateful for the people in my life. Rather than making this a soppy post, I’m just going to say, here’s to many more memories and adventures with loved ones. There’s still a lot to learn about myself and life but that’s one big adventure itself.

    Those days in your 20's are the best. No responsibility (in terms of other people) and lots of free time with the ability to go out day and night, suffer in the morning but persevere 😉

    Happy birthday! x
