In celebration of me turning 20 last month, here's 20 things I have learnt in 20 years. This post is inspired by the lovely Connor Franta & Karlie Kloss. 

1. Not everyone has the same views & attitude as you do and that is ok.
2. Embrace your weirdness!
3. You're not the only one who feels like they don't have their sh*t together. So breathe.
4. People grow apart. It doesn't necessarily mean people stop caring, we just start living different lives.
5. Being happy & healthy is the most important thing in life.
6. Things aren't always as bad as they seem to be. 
7. Things aren't always as good as they seem to be. 
8. What once seemed boring is now exciting. For example, lazy days.
9. Don't let anyone make you feel bad about your love for something.
10. Not everyone is going to like you. And that's ok.
11. Take time to pamper yourself.
12. When in doubt, dance it out. Who cares how you look dancing around your room?
13. If you love someone, tell them.
14. If you embarrass yourself, laugh it off. 
15. It's ok to fail, just make sure you take something away from it.
16. Eat the cupcake.
17. Read as much as you can.
18. Spend your free time with friends & family.
19. Cuddling a dog will make you feel 10x better.
20. Coffee is great...and so is wine.

Love, Becca x


  1. Ahh, turning 20 must be so exciting - but at the same time so scary as you are no longer a teen! I love 16, just eat the cupcake haha :)

  2. Embrace your weirdness! I love that one, I think everyone has a little weird in them and we shouldn't hide it. Happy late birthday :)
