On Friday it was my Birthday!! Yay - Happy Birthday me! I am officially now 23 years old. I love birthdays and spending time with my best friends and family and today I booked the day off work and am spending the weekend celebrating with my boyfriend and family- bring on the cocktails! Now that I'm 23 I thought I'd share with you 23 things that I've learnt over the past 23 years! So here goes:

Family are everything

As long as you try your best, that's all that matters.

Friends come and go, but you always realise who your real friends are in the end.

You should ALWAYS follow your dreams

Eyebrows will grow back.

Having a boyfriend who is also your best friend is amazing.

It doesn't matter if you're different - being different is cool.

Holidays are like therapy and gold dust when you work 9-5!

Exercise is hard, especially when you've been a slob for a few years.

Seeing your friends and family happy makes me feel 10 times happier.

Trust is very important.

Being an adult is hard.

Blogging has given me a hobby and lots of new friends.

You won't always be as skinny as your once where - your metabolism changes.

University is and always will be the best experience of your life.

A hot water bottle, a cuddle and a bar of your favourite chocolate cures the pain that a period brings.

Joining a new workplace makes you put on weight (why is there ALWAYS food at the end of my desk - need to resist!)

A cup of tea (and a biscuit or 10) always cure's everything.

Say yes to more things!

You can never have too much makeup.

I've got a serious obsession with Pandora rings.

If you work hard you will be rewarded.

You must always life life to the full.

I have learnt so much about myself over the years and have made some incredible memories with my favourite people. I cannot believe I'm not 23 and have just moved into my 2nd flat with my boyfriend and have graduated from University with a first class honours in events management. Although there have been many ups and downs I'm so happy right now and cannot wait to make many more memories! Coming up soon there will be a what I got for my 23rd birthday post so subscribe so you don't miss that (shameless plug!) Here to being 23!
