Last week I turned 25, and you know I went through the checklist of life, society’s expectations of where I should be in life, the type of job I should have etc etc; BUT I’ve realized I’m in a pretty good position mental health wise. When I graduated I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do and what career I wanted. Once I worked in the industry I realized it wasn’t for me and I’ve been working on myself and my mental health ever since. Your 20s are really hard, but why make it harder if you’re miserable? That’s what keeps me going.
My birthday also made me realize how lucky I am to have the people I have in my life. I’ve been super lucky to cross paths with you and have you in my corner (you know who you are). I have an amazing group of girlfriends of which we’ve been friends for almost a decade now, I have a strong/loving/generous man who made my birthday unbelievably memorable and perfect; and family that is always there -it’s been a hard year for us. I’ve also met some really amazing people through my man this year that I can’t be more grateful for knowing and getting to call them my close friends. You gals/guys rule.
This year I went for something a little more pocket friendly and went on a hunt to Forever 21. After endless fitting room selfies sent to my girlfriends I took this brick red top with cute cut-outs and obviously NEEDED this skirt for the summer. We went to The Boat in Kensington Market and it was ridiculously fun, but it’s also ridiculously hot in there so I kept that in mind when purchasing practically a bathing suit top.
Bring it on year 25!
