Why hello there everybody, it's been a while huh? I am SO sorry that I didn't warn you that PagesByMegan would be having a little bit of titty-faceing applied to it over the last few days, which meant we were down for around four whole days... DUN DUN DUNNNN! However, this has been something myself and the wonderful folk at Gatto have been working on for some time, so when the free weekend came up, we jumped at the chance to do the maintenance. I'll be talking you through the changes so stay tuned a little later this week to find out exactly what is different.
So, here we are aptly relaunching on 4th July which just so happens to be my 24th Birthday. I've had the most perfect weekend, celebrating with my closest loved ones, but with today being my actual birthday, I thought I would share 24 things that I have learnt in my twenty-four years on this planet... Enjoy!
1- It's OKAY to be different.
HELL YEAH IT IS! As hard as it was throughout high school to truly honour this motto, at twenty four years of age I can honestly say that I'm okay with being a "cool nerd" juxtapositions and all.
2- Sriarcha goes with EVERYTHING!
You saw that one coming didn't you. This is something that I have learnt in the last year of my life and one that I have George to thank for. But my god is it true; bacon, avocado, sausage, pizza, fish, eggs, toast... THE WORKS! Sriarcha is the king of the condiments.
3- Friends aren't always the friends they seem to be.
Friends will come and friends will go, friends will also turn into psycho obsessive freaks of natures but thats when it's time to let them go...
4- Hangovers really do get worse with age
Need I say more?
5- There is nothing a bubble bath can't solve
6- Something will always turn up
A motto that my mum has championed for as long as I can remember but holy moly is it true! Need to move to London next week? Sure the perfect flat will show up! Miserable at your job? No probs you'll deffo get another job... Positivity is key my friends.
7- Let them stare
People will always be intrigued by something you have chosen to grace your body with, but embrace it and let them stare, you can't please everyone after all and as my old man says "You're not wearing it, I am, so what does it matter!?"
8- True love DOES exist
And you may well end up with the guy from the band who you've always fancied... 😉
9- I will always get a spot the day before a big event
Cheers skin... Nice one
10- If there is a toe to be stubbed, I will stub it.
11- Work hard, spend hard
You've worked for it... Buy the shoes
12- No matter how hard you try, white bread will always bloat you... WHYYYYY!?
13- Be yourself
Like SRSLY, there is no one else out there quite like you, so you might as well embrace it!
14- There is no such thing as having too many shoes
15- Always forgive, never forget
16- THIS video, never gets old.
17- Your mum is ALWAYS right
I hate to admit it, but its extremely true. Those days when you were a no-it-all-teenager and your mum was "sooo boring" well, no actually she wasn't she just knew what was best for ya, love you momma!
18- If you're still thinking about it one month later... Buy it!
19- Tequila is not your friend
I just wish I'd remember this on a Friday night.
20- I don't really suit short hair
Please remind me of this next time I try to lob it all off.
21- People will always let you down
... But it's the ones that make it up to you that count.
22- There's a song for it
No matter what your mood there is always a song to suit
23- Mondays will always SUCK
Even when you can work from home, Monday will always come as a shock
24- You can always change direction
Your life is in your hands, it's okay to say no and it's okay to start over. This is something that I find tricky each and every day but I'm learning every single day that I can do whatever I set my mind to; if something isn't going the way you planned it to, stop, write a list and go kick ass.
Girl… YES! This was so lovely to read. You forgot the blueberries! I’m turning 24 next month and going through a bit of a “shit, what am I doing with my life” phase. Your positivity is something I definitely need to read. I’m moving home soon and excited to have my momma around all the time. Also… Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY and the blog looks siiiick! X
