10 THINGS THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE AN ADULT



Early twenties are a bit of a weird phase, we are meant to be adults but most of us feel more like children. In spite of moving out of my parents' house a few years ago and living in a whole different country away from all my family, I rarely ever feel like a grown up; let alone an adult who has their shit together. 

These past couple of months, however, I feel like I have grown up a lot. I have realised that sometimes when I do certain things I stop for a second and congratulate myself for giving off the impression of knowing what I am doing. 

"Congrats, you don't behave like a teenager anymore"

It's little mundane actions that I have started doing, things that I would imagine all these successful badass businesswomen doing. Here are ten of them.

  • Willingly waking up before 7am
  • Actually using my planner every day
  • Using mouthwash, daily
  • Doing laundry every weekend and separating whites and colours
  • Having a skincare routine and following it
  • Buying real food and vegetables instead of ready meals or take out
  • Keeping track of my finances
  • Remembering to pay bills
  • Meeting friends for a coffee
  • Having a go-to smoothie recipe
  • Bonus one: Having a Starbucks gold card, because every self-respected women definitely has one...

THE BEST PLACE TO BUY JEWELLERY ONLINE

Every girl has a sweet spot for jewellery, there is something about pretty earrings, necklaces and bracelets

that make us happy and they are also an essential part of any outfit. However, jewellery is one of those things that I often overlook and kind of 'forget' to buy. For example, when planning an outfit I'll think of the dress, heels, hair, make-up, even nail polish colour! But I'll rarely think of what jewellery to wear it with until I've got the outfit on. Not only that, but I really don't like going jewellery shopping. I find it too tedious and hard, not too mention it is also rather expensive. 

I recently came across easewholesale.com*, which is a wholesale fashion jewellery store. They have all kind of jewellery imaginable as well as a wide variety of styles so there is something for everyone. To make it even better, their prices are not outrageous - who wants to pay $30 for one necklace? Certainly not me.


I personally love their bangles as bracelets are my favourite accessories anyway. I have really been into simple and dainty bangles, they add a fancier touch to the outfit but they're not overwhelming, making them perfect for every day wear. I have specially been loving silver and rose gold accessories, as I find that if it's gold it can look cheap unless it's from a high-end store.

Something else I love from this website is their collection of rings, I am constantly buying new rings because I keep loosing them (I'm trying to get better at this...). As with bracelets, I always go for rather simple silver or rose gold rings, I like to wear loads of them at the same time - it looks so cool and edgy!

Overall I really love this website and it is definitley one of my go to places to get accesories from. I know that sometimes wholesale jewellery from china can be a bit dodgy and not very trustworthy, but everything from easewholesale.com does really look nice and not cheap at all!

DETAILS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY IN THE MORNING




As I have mentioned in my Becoming a Morning Person post, I am more of a morning person. I enjoy waking up before the sun is out and when it feels like the city is still sleeping. It is peaceful and quiet, two words that are rarely used to describe a city like London.

I love mornings in general, they are easily my favourite part of the day, but there are certain things that make me love them even more. Tiny details can make a huge difference! 

Breakfast in bed

Trust me when I say this, there is nothing I love more than eating my oatmeal and sipping on hot coffee in bed. This is something I only get to do if I wake up early enough so you can bet I'll get out of bed early to prepare my favourite oatmeal and a good cup of coffee in my favourite mug, anything tastes better if it is enjoyed in a warm cosy bed. 

Sunlight

By the time I have finished eating my breakfast it's not dark anymore. Being in the UK thought, sunrise doesn't really mean that the sun is out. It just means it is slightly less dark and very gloomy. In the odd days when the sun is really out and the sky is blue, I am instantly ten times happier and also so much more productive!

Reading

I have always loved reading, I would devour any book I had when I was younger - even though I am not such an avid reader right now, it's still something I really enjoy. I recently got a few books that I will show you guys in an upcoming post but the one I am currently reading is Inside Vogue: A Diary Of My 100th Anniversary by Alexandra Schulman. It's a very light read, but I find it fascinating how different her life is to what I know and I also find it very inspirational and motivating. 

Fresh Flowers


Nothing beats waking up to see a wonderful bouquet of fresh flowers on your nightstand or anywhere in your room. It's not something I always have but I sometimes treat myself to some beautiful flowers and it instantly lifts my mood. 

Sunrise

I don't always get to see the sunrise, as it is cloudy many days here in London but when I do you can bet I am incredibly happy. I have always been enchanted by both sunrises and sunsets and, since I am usually indoors when the sun sets, I love to make some time to contemplate the sunrise.

WORKOUT CLOTHING HAUL


New year, new me! 

That's what 90% of us say every January 1st. We want to eat healthier, quit smoking, hit the gym more often and, overall, we just want to become an even better versions of ourselves. I personally I am kind of happy with my diet, which is not perfect but life is too short to eat 100% clean and brownies are too good. However, I have been wanting to workout more this year as it is something I do actually enjoy once I get into it - we all know the hardest part is dragging your feet to the gym.

One thing that makes drag my ass to the gym is cute gym clothing and gym wear. Whenever I wear cool leggings, or sporty t-shirts I just feel super badass and ready to hit all those weird-looking machines at the gym. 

If you have been following me for a while, you'll know I rarely wear something other than black, grey or white. Therefore, when I saw the Ivy Park collection I knew I had to have them so  you can imagine my excitement when I finally got these two pieces. 


The Ivy Park Tape Tights* are probably, not only the comfiest, but also the coolest leggings I own. I love that they are quite plain so are very easy to style, and the writing on the sides adds a badass touch. I usually wear them with my black Nike trainers and a simple, slightly over-sized jumper. It's the perfect casual but cool outfit for a day running errands or at uni writing my dissertation. 

I also got the Ivy Park Tape Vest* which is the perfect t-shirt to work out in - loose, comfy, black, not too thick and sleeveless. Oh, and it also makes you feel like you've got your shit together because wearing something Beyonce created has that effect on you. I usually wear it with a bright sports bra to add a pop of colour, and off to the treadmill I go! 

I have been a bit obsessed with workout clothes recently (more than normal) so expect more hauls like this in the near future! Maybe having a drawer filled with beautiful leggings will make me go to the gym more often!
