Growing up and supposedly having it all figured out...


I have recently been thinking about where I am in life and how it could have been different.

When I was 10 I was going to be a hairdresser.
When I was 13 I was going to be a forensic scientist.
When I was 16 I was going to be in media but do hairdressing on the side.
When I was 17 I was going to be a Sports Journalist, then an accountant, then a journalist again.
When I was 18 I was going to be a Sports Journalist after studying a History degree, then by going on a Journalist course.

When I was 18 I left college and went to work and none of the above happened.

When I was 18 I was unemployed and unable to get a I worked on an Ice Rink for some money...I don't even like Ice Skating. 
Then I worked in a school, then a background screening company then the Olympics.
When I was 19 I was a Team Leader on one of the biggest Sporting Events ever.

Then I was unemployed again.

Then I got the job I'm doing now, I'm still there and I'm happy.

What I am trying to say is things don't go to plan and it may work out well in the end. I'm not the hairdresser/forensic scientist/journalist/accountant I thought I would be, but I'm working and enjoying what I do.

Up until the age of 16 I thought that by 21 I would have it all figured out, how wrong was I?! I may go to work, drive a car and pay some bills but in no way do I feel like I am cut out to be an adult. I couldn't wait to grow up and be independent and cool (or so I thought) but I still wish I was in secondary school.

So, no, by 21 you don't have it all figured out, but it doesn't mean you're doing it wrong. Carry on doing what you're doing and it will all work itself out in the end...or so I hope! :)

Growing out my eyebrows...

Hello lovelies!

I am having to grow out my eyebrows at the moment due to the fact the lady didn't listen to me, got thread happy, and threaded them WWWAAAAYYYY too thin. Such agg right now! I used to have lovely thick eyebrows but slowly but surely a change of eyebrow lady meant I got thinner eyebrows.

I have been meaning to grow them out for a while but the regrowth has always made me sick because it looks so vile, but my dad laughing at how thin they are not filled in made me realise I really need thick eyebrows back! 

I do love the shape threading gives and its my preferred method of eyebrow shaping but I could cry at how thin my eyebrows are lately!

I suppose this will take a while so does anyone have any tips on how to grow them back faster? Or disguise the horrible looking regrowth? Any tips will be greatly appreciated!!! Hopefully when they do grow out and I get them TIDYED (eyebrow lady read tidy not thin out) up they wont ever be thin again...hopefully.

Has anyone else has some eyebrow disasters?

I love October.

The beginning of Autumn for me! Absolutely love the weather this time of year, not too hot and not too cold. I am a Winter baby and hate the humidity of the London Summer! I don't mind being on holiday where I am in a bikini and able to cool down in the pool or sea, but London Summer and having to go to work during the hot stuffy heat really aggs me.

Although the dark mornings and nights depress me, I love this time of year. Coming up to Halloween and Bonfire Night...Christmas will be here soon! After after Christmas my big adventure starts! Hate wishing my life away but hurry up January!

It's just the snuggle time, sit in a read a book in the heat time, watch soppy films in bed time. Ohhhh bring on the Autumn/Winter!

What is your favourite time of year?
