And Just Like That.....Turning Twenty Six

I could go into reams and reams of wisdom on my birthday and talk about the changes of the last year and how I feel more settled and content than ever but you’d be bored and I’d never get to bed for never finishing writing it.

So instead, here’s 26 Pinterest worthy quotes I’d like to see take on the form of my twenty sixth year. Here’s to the next 365.

The Importance Of Friendships In Your Twenties.

When you're in your teens your friends, the amount of them and the calibre of them were seemingly the most important thing in the world. If you had few friends you were a loser, if you had loads of friends you were popular and if you were part of the 'cool' ones then all the better. 

And then you leave school and go to university and graduate and start working life and those friends you had probably aren't your friends anymore and the rest of the world certainly doesn't know you were part of the popular crowd. Very quickly you're taught that actually it's the quality of friends you have that matters most over the quantity and having lots of friends isn't the be all and end all anymore. 

But your friendships in your twenties are just as important as those in your formative years - they're just important in a different way. 

Twenty Four Things I Did In My Twenty Fourth Year.

Guess who's birthday it is! Ya girl turns 25 as of about 1.15am today. 

Twenty five years old. I have officially left the young voters age bracket if we have another general election and if I made my X Factor debut now I'd be in the Overs category. Twenty four felt like a very 'non' age to me, like a bit made up? Twenty five sounds like a nice solid round number so I'm hoping it'll be a happy, successful year full of adventure (and maybe some holidays or clothes or summin fun). 

***FREE*** Bullet Journal Printables.

Can I emphasise enough that they're free?

Last weekend I wrote about my first week using my bullet journal, a pink bargain from TK Maxx (read the original post here) and being the photo heavy post that is was, the one thing that commented on more than anything was how pretty it was. 

So FYI if you are new to the blog I am trained and qualified and practising as an illustrator so design and illustration and doodling and making things look pretty is literally my business - it is how I make my money. After having 217489237592375 people tweet me like "ugh I wish mine could look like this' or saying they were pinning images to copy later I soon realised that actually if you haven't naturally got an artistic flair but want your BuJo to look a certain way, drawing like this or handwriting nice fonts and banners is actually quite difficult. 

Thus the idea came into my head for this post and subsequently turned into me having a massive surge of inspiration and designing all kinds of new projects for my Etsy shop which are all at the printers.
