Things I want to have achieved before I'm 21

Things I want to have achieved before I'm 21

I will be celebrating my 21st on the 10th May 2016. Yep, not long at all. There are a few things I want to have achieved by then and I thought it would be a good idea to share them with my blog.

1. Get a new car. I'm looking into this now, hopefully soon I will have this! Obviously I need to sell my current car too!

2. Get a tattoo. Again I'm currently looking into this. I really hope I get this done and it doesn't hurt too much! I don't want to give too much details away because I don't want anyone to know until I've got it.

3. Go and visit my friend Shannon. This is probably more of an anxiety thing because at the moment the thought of staying somewhere for a couple days is a little overwhelming but I am so determined to overcome it! Plus I really miss her so that would be great.

4. Blog regularly again. I don't mean as regularly as I used too because I just don't get time anymore but maybe once every few weeks just for my own sake?

5. Sleep less in the day! I'm not sure why I want to do this before I'm 21 but I waste so much time sleeping when I could be out living life!

6. HAVE MORE FUN! I seem to forget that I'm only 20 and I'm allowed to fuck up. I need to go to more parties and make more friends and just live a little.

I think that's all I want to have achieved before I'm 21, I know I've not got long to change these but I can do it! 2 months and my life will be different!



I've been trying to blog for weeks now. Sadly, no matter how many blogs I read or how much I ask my Twitter followers for motivation, I find myself unable to post something new. At the beginning of the year I started a new job, made new friends and selfishly stopped thinking about my blog. I kept telling myself "don't just quit your blog", "think of all the people who read your blog now", "remember how hard I worked last year to make your blog interesting". I just didn't care, I had nothing interesting to put on my blog. 

I'm currently struggling with blog post ideas because if I'm honest, I'm bored of reading blogs. It's starting to get very repetitive. I don't tend to read beauty posts or fashion posts. Monthly favourites, wish lists and empties are getting boring and old fashioned! If I'm not enjoying reading posts like that then why would I want to write them? So if I'm not going to write posts like that, what am I going to write? 

So I'm taking a bit of time to have a think about what I want to say on this blog. I know you all like the anxiety posts but I don't want to become 'the anxiety blog' because that's not me and I don't want it to define me. 

I'm not sure when I'll be back, it'll probably be soon but I just want to plan a few posts and get myself back on track before I start blogging again. 

Meanwhile, don't forget to enter my small giveaway which closes on the 29th February. 

Thanks for all your support.

Up Up and Away, Newton Faulkner GIVEAWAY!

Up Up and Away, Newton Faulkner GIVEAWAY!

So as you know I love discovering new music and obviously the best part of it being able to share it on my blog. I was recently approached by a lovely lady who asked if I had heard of Newton Faulkner. Um... YES! My 14 year old self used to LOVE him! I remember one year I was gutted that he was attending a festival near me and I couldn't go.
