Summer School

on

From friendships to bad habits; here are a few things I have learnt this summer:I finished school ages ago & my friends laugh when I say “you learn something new every day” probably because I say it every day, but it is true! I genuinely think the if you open your eyes, ears and heart you will learn so many things; about the world, others and most importantly yourself. So here are my 5 lessons of the summer so far


I am a really good friend. I don’t mean this in a conceited way either. But it is true! I take pride in being there for the people that need me. I don’t rack up all the things I have done for my mates or anything but from the friendships I have and what my friends do for me? I have to be amazing tbh (cos they are)

I have amazing friends. They proof-read my blogs, take my photos, keep me company on shoots and at radio. I used to say that I didn’t have many but a holiday with 9 of my closest mates and I realise THAT WAS A LIE! I am lucky in that my siblings are my friends too but one thing I have realised over the years (so not just during this summer) over the break-ups and makeups. Through highs and lows? My mates are there no matter what they are going through so shout out you guys!

My natural hair isnt EVERYTHING. Yes it is wicked and I am happy I made the decision to kick the creamy crack but it doesn’t define me. You may have noticed recently that I have it out less than ever before, because I am tired of only being recognised for that (by some people)
There are other interesting things about me… Trust me

I am inconsistent but I am trying to be better. Whether it is blogging and stopping or exercising regularly. Some habits are so easy to keep; like watching Love Island for instance but ones that I am trying to form for the good of me are difficult to maintain. I’m working on it and hopefully we will all benefit from this.

My idea and evaluation of success has changed drastically– very quickly. I blame falling in love… Lol.. I’m laughing but I’m serious (will explain this one in another blog because it deserves its own page)

Coffee: Iced vanilla coconut latte like all the real bloggers drink!


Of course I don’t expect you to have learnt the same things as me but I will say that you should try to take a sec each day and think about what it has taught you. It’s quite fun (:
