HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know it's the 7th, but still, Happy New Year. I hope you al had a wonderful time over the holidays, and that you're all staying positive throughout January, however cold, sad and penniless you may feel, it's really not all that bad!

Anyway, I actually have some pretty big news to share with you since the last time I posted... I am now no longer a 21 year old. * Silence*. Yep, I'm getting well into my twenties now (time is going too damn quickly!), and I officially turned 22 on Sunday. Turning 22 made me realise how much more independence I want gain in 2016. I mean, I drive my own car, and I live away from home in Manchester at Uni, so I am fairly independent in a sense already. But this year I really want to accomplish the feeling of not needing anyone else's support to get by comfortably in life. No more dreaded student loans, struggling to buy food, and other people having to pay for you at fancy meals out, you know?

Don't get me wrong, having support is a truly amazing feeling, and I greatly appreciate all the support I receive, BUT, I think it would be an even better feeling to have that support, but not physically needing it. I'm rambling, but I hope you get what I mean. Basically, I will finally be graduating from university this year, and hopefully that will be followed with me getting a full time job and finally getting my own place (that isn't a student house), and I cannot explain to you how excited that prospect makes me. 

So this year, I'm 22, I'm graduating, and I'm aiming for independence. What are you aiming for this year?

  6. Happy new year to you too, and happy birthday! I totally get what you mean - this past year I've been able to help with the bills for my family and it feels really good. Love your outfit, by the way! I find that a dark green is hard for me to style because I think it's an awkward color, but you've paired it off really well!

  7. This is such a perfect winter outfit, cosy and chic! Love the leather skirt and knee high boots, toned down perfectly with a jumper, scarf and tights :)
    Welcome to the 22 club! I'm dreading turning 23 in a few months. I'd quite like to stay in my early 20s forever, thank you!
