I think it is officially midnight on the East Coast, so I want to say a massive HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of the best people I know 💗 Lauren, my dear, I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for you! You are one of the brightest, most passionate, driven, hilarious, lovely, beautiful people I know and I hope you know how much to mean to SO many! You never fail to make me laugh, whether we’re talking about One Direction or venting about silly foreign boys. You inspire me in so many ways and are simply a wonderful friend and human! I can’t wait to travel the world with you and drink all of the Guinness imaginable.
I hope you are feeling so very 22 and have the best day! Love you lots and lots🍻💗
Let’s just think about people like pizza for a second. I’m 99.9% sure that almost everyone likes pizza, but not everyone likes it the same way. Some people like their pizza in a round shape, some like it in a slice, some like thick pizza, some like thin, some like doughy crust, some like crispy, some like loads of sauce, some like more cheese, some like toppings galore, some are fine with the straight up pepperoni—but the moral of this story is that we all love pizza, but everyone has their own perfect slice.
YOU will be someone’s perfect slice and until that time, just keep being yourself and loving life. It is about more than what you look like—looks fade. Continue to put yourself out there, get to know people, and the right people will make their way into your life. I have been attracted to boys in the past that aren’t the most conventionally attractive or whatever, but they were GOOD guys and personality/a sense of humour/a sense of self can go SO much farther than an attractive body, pretty face, or any of those superficial things. Remember that beauty ideals and all of that madness are perpetuated by society—you do not need to live up to anyone’s silly idea of perfection, you only need to be yourself. Keep your chin up my love x
I do off and on. I was massively into lifting before I left for England and for a bit while I was there, but I’ve sort of fallen off of that train. To be honest with you, when I was lifting my heaviest, I was still very slim but also healthy. It’s generally quite hard for most women to get ‘bulky’ in the sense that you may be thinking and often muscle causes a leaner appearance, as it is denser than fat. That means a pound of muscle is going to take up less space than a pound of fat. More muscle also allows you to burn more calories at rest than you would otherwise.
There are so many health benefits to lifting and I think you’ll see great results. However, people are blessed with different body types and their bodies may change differently—though I truly don’t believe that you will become ‘bulky.’x
I just finished running a few miles and now it is time for a bit of yoga.
I always have to force myself to workout after a long day of school and work but I always feel SO much better after doing so. Such a stress reliever after a long day :)
I’m then going to make some tea, eat probably the majority of the contents of my kitchen, and study, study, study.
HOPE YOU’RE HAVING A STELLAR NIGHT CUTIES X
Hello pal! First of all, you are so cute :)
I do like rice cakes and I like to eat them with—wait for it, such a plot twist—PEANUT BUTTER. I have a problem where I like peanut butter on just about anything. My favorite tea is Earl Grey, hands down. I go through the stuff like a madwoman. I am BEYOND excited for Christmas—it is my favorite time of year. I love the Christmas cookies and songs and it’s cold and it’s just so good. My favorite artists are always the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Elvis, and Bob Dylan. If we’re talking newer stuff though, Ed Sheeran, Passenger, and Arctic Monkeys. My favorite song at the moment is probably ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran. Hmmm I’m really feeling a massive horror movie marathon and would love to just sit around and do nothing and watch those all day.
Hope you’re having a good one xx
You are so cute and badass all at the same time and this makes me supaaaa happy! Congrats love, you’re killing it xx
