14 Things I Learned In 2014

1. Regardless of how you feel about Kylie Jenner, you WILL invest in many nude lipsticks and you WILL love them.

2. Your face ain't finished unless you've got some kind of contour going on.

3. Charlotte Tilbury is God.

4. Matte lipstick is the best thing ever. It's just so long lasting and, oh look, you can't actually get it off. Beautiful. Worth it.
5. All photo's look better if they're square... Even if they're rectangular but then you use some ingenious app to make them square. Edgy.

6. A mug of tea/coffee is the most 'instagrammable' if it has your initial on it... This goes for basically anything. 

7. Rose gold everything

8. You can wear trainers with literally any outfit. And you will.

9. The iPhone six bends if you put it in your pocket and sit on it. Oh, and it's big.

10. Tweeting complaints about your purchases and '@'ing the company in it will always get you a quicker response than emailing them. Unless it's Christmas, in which case you're beyond help. Sorry.

11. Getting favourite happy on Twitter will make you look like a bit of a creep. But it's okay because you're so happy and fun and love everything.

12. It is always worth deleting/blocking those who winge/ indirectly bitch & moan on social media at the first opportunity, you'll feel better for it. (& then continue to search for them on said social media sites just to see if they're still being annoying. Yup, you were right)

13. After graduating you will have less money than you ever imagined and you'll have to move back home and get a job in a shop.. Unless you're every single one of my fabulous successful friends... Not bitter.. Nope.. Not one bit.

14. Despite living at home and having no space to put anything it is still perfectly acceptable to go on a 'homeware haul' because : all drinks are better from a kilner jar, and even more so if you have some paper straws (must be red & white striped). Cute and totally necessary.

  4. Haha this made me laugh so much!! Kylie Jenner definitely doesn't have the copyright on nude lipsticks so we can all rock them! xx

    1. Aha awh thanks Jordan! I felt a bit nervous to post it as it's different to my usual 'stand awkwardly in the garden' posts haha but I'm glad it made you laugh!
      And you are SO right. Nude lipsticks for all!!


  5. I completely agree with number 7 & 12! Deleting people who winge is one the most satisfying things you will ever do :) Also, you have such a lovely blog!
