So a friend and blogger, Ari has written a blog based on an article in US Glamour called “30 Things Every Woman Should Have and Should Know by the Time She’s 30” I’ve pinched the idea and decided to give it a go myself since I’m about to enter my 29th year. You take the list and comment after each one. So here goes!
I think all of my furniture has been bought by me and my husband, except the desk in my photography room.
That’s tricky because no outfit can be thought out correctly and then worn within an hour! It needs a minimum of at least a night’s mulling!
I have a few handbags I love to show off. Two Diors, a Gucci, an Orla Kiely and my current favourite is a Biba. My suitcase is functional not stylish – wouldn’t mind a new one! I have about 8 umbrellas. My newest is from Paperchase and has different types of weather printed all over it. My favourite was bought at Glastonbury festival two years ago when it was baking hot and there was no shade. It’s a sun with little sunbeams sticking out the top!
I am content to move beyond my youth, but I don’t want to start acting like an adult yet. I want to act like a teenager forever but I’ve learned from mistakes I made when I was a kid.
I have some stories. In fact I have a bad habit of telling them to the same person lots of times…. and they just look at me like ‘you’ve told me this twice already’….. I’m not done having fun yet though!
This isn’t something you have to think about yet, surely? You have to think about having the money to fund the now and the big things for the near future like a house and a car or a family. Once you’ve got those you can then think about your old age – but what’s the point of saving all your money for old age and not enjoying the lead up to it?
Yes, yes and yes. But I allow access to family if they need it. I have the control though – mwahaha!
Why would you risk padding your CV? I never have and never will. My CV is too long as it is!
I am lucky to say I have a rather large group of people I would call best friends and all of them would make me laugh and allow me to cry. That’s why they’re my best friends!
Yes, No and Yes. Why do I need a cordless drill?
Hmm… probably the Dior hangbags! Oh and some Jimmy Choos…….
I really do believe in the golden rule. Do as you would be done by. I think good people should get good fortune. It doesn’t work that way though. Good things happen to bad people. I know I deserve good fortune, but I also know that I may not get it!
Ha! I’m going to look 16 forever…. that’s my curse.
I have a very satisfying relationship. At this point in my life things have begun to change career wise. My prospects and my attitude to the future has changed and it’s exciting. Lots of things seem possible and I’m not scared about it.
I know how to fall in love. I know how to lose myself when I want to and be myself when I need to.
Not sure to be honest. I want to know what they would look like, but I love my freedom and the opportunity to get lost somewhere without consequences.
Quitting a job is simple, confronting a friend is awkward but fine if they’re your friend. I’m never breaking up with my man.
Yes. This took a long time to learn.
I’m a woman, what do you think?
I know the latter two. You don’t get tailors where I live, you get dry cleaners who can sew buttons on and fix zips. For tailors you need Saville Row. I don’t know the name of the secretary of state, but that’s because I’m British….. (bad excuse I’m sorry! I’m going to learn right now……)
No. And I don’t want to learn this.
I have a few places and that’s good with me.
My legs are amazingly long (34″) and that’s fine. The width of my hips gives me a nice hour-glass figure. I wouldn’t want to change the nature of my parents.
There wasn’t anything wrong with my childhood other than it took me 29 years before I was able to get on a rollercoaster! My parents knew when to tell me what to do and when not to interfere no matter how worried they were. My upbringing has allowed me to learn and work out who I am now.
Well yes, but that’s all to do with upbringing too.
I’ve never flossed in my life – that’s a lie, I tried it once and it was horrid so I never did it again. The rest of that list can go jump.
I’ve learned to not take things personally. I’m a very blunt person and feel honesty is the best policy. Lies will usually come back and bite you on the bum. Awkward things said plain and black and white can be made a lot less awkward. I learn the hard way who I can trust…. and don’t usually learn from these mistakes – hence honesty being the best policy!
Ack! I always apologise for things that aren’t my fault and I hate it.
