When I started High School as a 4 foot something 12 year old I used to look up to all of the older girls in absolute awe and marvel at how they had it all figured out as they floated down the corridors with their perfect hair and high school boyfriends in tow (until I actually reached their age and realised that, wait a minute, I still feel 12 and they probs did too). Before long, there was one girl in particular who stood out to me and she instantly became my favourite. There's no denying that she was beautiful but it was way more than that. She seemed so kind and clever and carried big folders and textbooks around with her wherever she went which just really made me feel like she had it together. For all I know she could have been the school's biggest biatch and needed so many textbooks because she kept failing everything but whenever she smiled or said hi to me I felt so cool and important because omg this is not a drill, an older girl actually acknowledged me. Maybe it was because she just felt really uncomfortable that I kept staring at her and her bloomin folders, who knows. But the point is at that time in my life she was a role model to me and not an airbrushed, unattainable one famous for doing goodness knows what (or goodness know who), but a real life 17/18 year old girl who probably had absolutely no clue of my admiration for her.

From buying your first 'Sex Bomb' as a pre-teen and trying to hide the label from your Mum because omg it says S-E-X lolz, to splashing £6.95 on a fresh face mask that's going to make your 13th birthday sleepover one they're going to be talking about for years, purchasing from Lush is kind of like a right of passage. So it felt slightly strange attending a bloggers event at my local Lush where I've been prodding the shower jellies and eating the lip scrub testers since I can remember. Although I've always been aware of the fact that the store holds such a range of products that I'd probably love, it can be easy to get distracted by the amazing colours and smells of the bath bomb and bubble bar section so I was super excited to learn about some different products and their benefits, especially since your gals still on the lookout for a skincare routine that means I'll never have to buy concealer again.

It's no secret that I spend more time planning than actually doing. I love to plan, it makes me feel calm and in control and kind of like I'm doing this whole grown up thing right. And although I love the Internet and my phone is superglued to my hand as much as the next person, there's just something about buying a pack of really nice coloured pens and planning on paper that makes me feel like all is right in the world. So obviously, when I stumbled across the absolute babe that is the bullet journal a few months ago, I was desperate to get started (so much so that I paid for next day delivery for my notebook because I seriously couldn't wait a minute longer, lol lame).

Oh hey boos, welcome to quite possibly the latest June faves in all the land. I hope you'll still find it relevant despite it us basically being half way through July now, lol my bad. In my defence, I did set myself up in a comfy little corner of Starbucks with a basic gal Americano in hand ready to educate you about all of my true loves of the month until I realised that the trusty Starbucks wifi wasn't working and I had to make a sly escape to the nearest NYX counter. I tried. I've not done a monthly favourites in a very very long time but June is the best month of the whole entire year (no I'm not biased because it's my bday month, why would you even say that?) so it only felt right to dedicate a post to it and all the goodies it brought with it. There are loads of beauty bits and bobs that I've also been loving throughout June which I haven't included in this post, purely because I posted a Big Summer Beauty Haul a few weeks ago which is definitely your go to place if your money is burning a hole in your pocket and the spending spree itch is feeling strong, sorry to your bank account in advance.

I've done it boos. I've survived my teenage years and I'm literally running away from them in the opposite direction as fast as my lanky legs will carry me. Although it's slightly freaking me out that I'm now the same age as Kendall Jenner and yet still struggle to find motivation to shave my legs and have never tried avocado, I'm looking forward to what my twenties will bring (clear skin, please let it be clear skin). I'm not going to lie, a recipe for my adolescence would probably include 300g of raging, uncontrollable hormones, 2 cup fulls of irredeemable embarrassment, a heaped table spoon of bad decisions and poor judgement and a sprinkle of Maybeline Dream Matte Mousse foundation. Granted, it might not result in the tastiest cake but it does make for a pretty interesting learning curve. So here are 20 of the most important things I've learned from being a teenager and maybe if you're still in the prime of your youth, you could learn from them too and save yourself from some unduly humiliation or tears. Just trying to help a gal out.
