21 Things I Learned at 21

Well, Enthusiasts, I made it to 22.¬†And it’s been quite the year.

If you’ve been following me on this journey, you will know that every year I make a list of all the lessons I’ve learned. If you haven’t been following, here is 17, 18, 19, and 20. And what you’re reading here is 21.

21 Things I Learned at 21

The ripe age of 21 tested me in ways I never knew. I graduated college. I got my first adult job. I dealt with heartbreak for the first time. I bought a car. I learned a lesson about friendship. I became really good at making avocado toast. And each of these experience taught me about the person I am, and who I strive to be. I’m a lot stronger than I give myself credit for, and I hope the lessons below show that.

The days that defined my 21st year of life will always stick with me, to remind me of the path I’ve taken where I am. And with Year 22 happening in only a few short hours, I can’t wait to see what it has in store for me. Continue reading

Favourites Friday #71: Old New Favourites

A little nostalgia hurt no one. Or at least that’s what I’ve been telling myself.

This week, as I’ve been loading up on audiobooks for my car and trying to get the most out of my library card, I have been taking a trip down memory lane with all the books that made up my adolescence. Whether they helped me through a tough time, or simply made me laugh, it’s been nice to revisit them as an adult. Continue reading

Favourites Friday #70: Lazy Girl Hacks

Does the idea of getting up and spending an hour getting ready sound like too much of a commitment? There’s nothing wrong with being lazy, especially when it comes to getting ready for the day.

Even as a morning person, I struggle with getting ready most mornings. Any product that can make looking pretty easy (and take very little time) is considered good in my book. I thought I’d share my go-to’s for mornings where I just want to lie in bed, but I’ve got places to go. Continue reading

An Enthusiastic Day in the Life

One thing I love about being in my early twenties is that my life is constantly changing. A year ago I was in school, living with a group of girls and trying to cram homework and socializing in whenever I could. Six months ago I was living at home with my parents spending most of my day dogsitting our enormous Labrador puppy. And now I’m working full-time and living in suburban Portland.

Lots of change.

A Day in the Life

With all these changes I have watched my daily routine change. It’s interesting to see how I arrange my schedule around what life is throwing around me to still accomplish everything I need to and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

Today I thought I would share my daily routine in order to get everything done, while still enjoying my youth. Continue reading

Favourites Friday #68: Sweet Pink

It’s the first Friday of spring, and I am ready for this weekend! Lazy mornings with a cup of tea, a stop at my favourite creperie, and hours on my sofa reading library books. What could be more perfect?

68

But before I can get to the good stuff, I have to reflect on all of the lovely parts of this week. The theme happened to be pink – not that I’m complaining – and it led to a lovely and feminine week of enjoying everything I love about being a woman with simple pleasures.

Let’s take a look! Continue reading
