Our 21st Today! | 21 Things We've Learnt

As I'm writing this post, I'm sitting here with the biggest chunk of cake - not just any cake, an incredibly, stunning hand made unicorn cake! With a cup of tea of course because it's our 21st! Yep, we are officially big girls. So I thought I'd write one of those reflecting-back-on-life posts because let's face it, that's what we all do on birthdays. Another year older and hopefully a lot wiser.

1. Not Everyone is Horrible - I've met shitty people, we've both dated shitty people but guess what? Not everyone is the same. Not everyone is this world is malicious but unfortunately, some are. Trust people when they've earned it. Keep faith that some people are kind.

2. Take Up New Opportunities! - Speaks for it's self! get all the experience you can get!

3. Don't Like Something? Give It Up! - Including jobs, people or something else. Don't be miserable. There is always something out there.

4. Live Life To The Fullest - This is in connection to number 3, do things that make you happy!

5. Love Yourself - Because you deserve it!

6. Put Yourself First - This is important. Take care of others but don't forget about yourself either. 

7. Never Give Up Hope - I've felt lost so many times but the best thing you can do is get back on your feet and be positive. Harder said than done.

8. Be Yourself -  We fully embrace our alternative style and we've never felt better within ourselves or style! 

9. Art & Music is Our Passion - No matter what, we always draw & make music and it makes us feel at peace. Art is such a creative thing and never fails to cheer us up or inspire us. 

10. Health is so important! Having the flu taught me this, especially in this last year.

11. Having a Blog Makes Us Happy - We love our little space in the internet - the ultimate escape from the real world!

12. High End Make Up Is Worth It! Urban Decay makes me the happiest girl ever and also makes me feel like the ultimate badass makeup queen. Definitely worth spending my money on! 

13. Metal Music is Superior. 

14. Red Wine is Surprisingly Amazing! - Having never tried it before, I found out a week ago that I love the red stuff! 

15. My Family is Everything - I don't know what I'd do without them!

16. Heartbreak Gets Easier - I thought my heart would be broken forever but with time, it's healed. 

17. Bad Relationships Aren't Worth It - Cut those toxic negative people out of your life. All they do is hurt you over and over again.

18. Travelling Is The Best Thing You Can Do - Spending our money on experiences is so important to us.

19. Bubble Baths Are The Best - There is nothing better than getting a bath and putting on cosy pyjamas afterwards!

20. Time goes so fast - Make the most of it! 

21. I couldn't do this life without my twin sister - I love you so much Rach! 

There you have it! What have you learnt this past year?
