Oh heyy!

On the 19th March, 2018, I turned 22. It’s no surprise it was a complete birthday come down considering last year I spent my 21st birthday in DISNEYLAND PARIS!!! This year, the 19th fell on a Monday, meaning I spend the day in university – fun! …NOT!

Naturally, I spent the days leading up to my birthday reflecting on my life so far, and where I would like to be in a year from now. This is a list of 22 things I have learned by the age of 22!

  1. If I do not end up working in the fashion industry, my course has been the biggest achievement of my life so far, and I will always be thankful for that.
  2. I would live anywhere else in the UK other than London.
  3. I am not someone who enjoys the gym, no matter how much I wish I did.
  4. Roaccutane is the best and worst drug I have ever experienced, but the results make up for the side effects in the end.
  5. I actually want children(!!!). I’ve spent my whole life not wanting children, but within the last year the clock has started ticking and it’s all I can think about when I envisage the future.
  6. I find it really difficult to find ‘boy’ names I like for a future child of mine.
  7. I want to see the world, but I need to remember there is no rush, no rush at all.
  8. I wanted to start a youtube channel when I was 16, it could’ve lead me down a different life path completely but there is a part of me that still wishes I did.
  9. I HATE LEMON FLAVOURED THINGS. In particularly; lemon juice, lemon cake, lemon candles, lemon sorbet etc, etc.
  10. The Big Bang Theory and Friends will never get old!
  11. Don’t set your hopes too high for tv finales – Pretty Little Liars was SO RUBBISH!
  12. People in life don’t always put as much effort into friendships as you do. This doesn’t mean they’re horrible people, BUT if they don’t make you happy, you’re not out-of-order to let go of them. (Does that make sense???)
  13. Learning to drive is pretty important, even though I did not listen to anyone that told me that when I was 17.
  14. I loveeeee family more than anything in this world, family come first, always.
  15. I like really girly chick-flicks, and that doesn’t make me any less ‘cool’.
  16. Earrings can be so fun, be brave and have fun with them gurllllll.
  17. Fashion design is not necessarily about designing for what you would wear personally, but about the brand and what would sell.
  18. Birthdays are a big deal, anyone that doesn’t make you feel special on your day are not worth your time.
  19. I’m a pretty great Auntie to my Niece and I can’t wait to be equally great to my future Nephew (Due: 30th August)
  21. I feel empathy for others more than I think is normal.
  22. The song ’22’-Taylor Swift is old now. Noone remembers it exists and will not play it to you on your 22nd birthday 😦


I hope you enjoyed this post.

Thank you so much for reading!

  1. 🙂 good lessons. Not sure if birthdays r a big deal tho. I’ve stopped celebrate them 10 years ago or so…too boring 🙂 sometimes I have party & big meet up, but very seldom. After a while it loosing the meaning. I’m just buying presents for myself 😂 and go on trips 🏖🌊☀️
    But from other side…I’m 40 lol when I was 22 I also thought the birthday is a big deal 🙂


    1. I get that it’s just another day, and I didn’t mean presents haha, it’s just the way I feel appreciated on that day. If someone I consider to be a friend, can’t be bothered to wish me a happy birthday I find that just a little out of order☺️It reflects my point about people not putting as much into a friendship as me! But I’m all ears and continue to learn throughout my life, thank you for the comment 😊
