Happy Birthday to Me! And a Blog Survey for all my amazing readers!!

Hi everyone!! SO today I’m celebrating my 20th birthday. Yup that big scary number that means I’m leaving my teenage years behind forever and am now officially an adult with no escape. Because today’s a special day, I;m doing a little survey to see what you all think of my blog and so I’d really appreciate it if you could fill it out and let me know your thoughts (I’m also trying to raise money for WWF so if you would like to donate xx). Thank you all in advance! xx

20 before 20

Turning 20 is a pretty significant milestone, more so than a lot of people make it out to be. Why? Because you’re no longer a teenager! You’re leaving the teens behind and heading into the big and scary 20s where things like full-time employment, mortgages, marriage and even kids start appearing (depending on what part of your 20s you’re in obviously) … scary how grown-up that sounds doesn’t it? Today I’m going through a list of 20 things to do before you turn 20, seeing as that big day for me is only 2 weeks away … AHHHHHH!!!

Party Planning 101 – the Checklist to Success

I’ve always loved celebrating events. Birthdays, Christmas, other holidays or just random reasons to throw a party. Something about it just gives me a buzz. Party planning though, particularly for birthdays, can sometimes be more of a nightmare than a fun celebration. There is so much to organise, so much to buy, so much to make and arrange again and sometimes time can run away from you, and the whole thing just ends up being a headache-inducing horror. I’ve had those parties, and they can ruin party planning for a lot of people. But, there is a way to try to keep control over your party, so that you are the one in charge and running the show, not the other way around. By giving yourself a checklist to follow, you don’t eliminate all the stress of party planning, but you can get rid of a lot of it. Because there is a list to follow and a process to help you make sure you don’t miss anything significant. Today I’d like to share with you a checklist to success for party planning, seeing as I’m in that cake and balloons mood already for my own birthday. Now it is only a rough checklist, so feel free to adapt or add to it as you need, but I hope that with this list in hand, party planning will at least be a little easier for you the next time you do it.
