This is it

Spur of the moment afternoon tea with my folks because why the hell not. 

It is the little things that we remember - like some my fondest childhood memories are picnics with mum and dancing to children songs one Halloween evening. The simple things matter the most. Your family will be there for you no matter what. Friendships blossom if you nourish it. Be kind to everyone you encounter and smile. Blast the cheesiest music guilty pleasure you have at the highest volume. Dance while said music is playing. Stop and enjoy a cup of tea in silence every once in a while. Open your window and let fresh air in. Homecooked meals are the best especially if shared with good company. Eating out alone will do wonders for your soul. Same with going to the movies alone. There's a different kind of satisfaction in being comfortable in your own company. Appreciate your tutors and the people you learn from. They want you to succeed. Let them help you. Wear the clothes you want. Stop caring about what other people think. Don't step on anyones toes to get to the top. Don't forget the people who helped you get to where you are. BE KIND TO OTHERS. Be mindful. Be grateful. Eat, drink, and be merry. Eat healthy. Be curious. Never stop learning. Buy that pair of shoes you've always wanted. Surround yourself with things that inspire you. Let art make you feel. JUST FEEL GODDAMNIT. Feel something. Anything. Everything. It's all about DA FEELS guys. Crush on that celebrity and read fanfiction. Send appreciation letters to your heroes. Create. Embrace change. Strive to excel. Don't be average. I hate average. Don't settle. Dream big. Wear floral crowns or whatever makes you feel pretty. Fill your environment with fresh flowers and pretty things. Do it. Do that thing you've always wanted to do. Don't be afraid to tell someone you love them. Write them a fucking love letter if that helps. Make mixtapes. Take care of nature and the environment. Same goes with pets. Support local artists who gain next to nothing for their work yet do it anyway for the love of it. Appreciate everything you have. Gratitude goes a long way. Get rid of your sense of entitlement. Work hard and reap what you sow. Eat that cheesecake. Cry while watching wedding videos. Support your fave band. Be one with the crowd and music. Question. Let go. Defy gravity. Do what you love. Let your passion light your eyes. Take control. Never stop living.

Life is short. Pity we don't realise that until we are reminded of it yet again in horrible ways. 


  1. Hey pretty girl in her floral headband..... if my daughter could grow to have as much emotional maturity and self belief as you I will live out my years a happy parent. Love your blog and thanks for reminding me what life should be all about.

    1. Wow thank you Flick. This means a lot coming from you. Thanks for being such a good mentor and giving me that extra push in the direction where I want to go. I wrote this because I was upset about a good friend's mum passing away. I felt like I needed to write something that I could look back on whenever I lose my way. Here's to living out our passions!:)

  2. Life may be short girl but we're going to make every minute a good one! Living out our dreams and making the most of everything that comes our way!

    So happy I am blessed enough to have an amazing friend like you to share my dreams with!
    Watch out world we are coming! x
