Would 8 year old me be proud of me right now?

So I saw an interesting question quite a lot of people have posed and it’s would 8 year old me be proud of me right now at this point in my life if they could see me? So I thought I’d find my own answer to this because no one else can answer this for me obviously 🙂

When I was 8 I wanted to be a baker with my dad, a gymnast, a ballerina, an army cadet, a teacher and a vet just to name a few but you name it I have probably wanted to be that profession once in my younger years.

But how did it all turn out so far? Well I believe that if 8 year old me could see me now, they would be proud and there’s many reasons for this…

1. I’m at university, something which I always looked up to my siblings for and I knew since I was little I wanted to go to university to get a degree and the job I always wanted.
2. I have met someone who I think the world of and they think the world of me back! When I was little I would think about meeting someone significant and falling in love like it was in the movies I’d watch and books I’d read. 8 year old me never really believed in fate or even knew it existed but I can say in my opinion that now I know it exists and I think little me would be proud of this discovery.
3. I have travelled and intend to travel to many other countries. When I was little I dreamed about travelling to all the different countries, spinning my globe and pinning my finger on a random place when it stopped spinning was something I loved doing! (Although most of the time my finger ended up pointing to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean!)
4. I have finally gained the confidence boost I needed, when I was in primary school and also a part of secondary school I was called “Mary mouse” because I was so quiet and I was scared of everything! But now that part of me seems like a distant memory 🙂
5. In general I’d say I have come a long way, I have learnt a lot, experienced a lot and just overcome obstacles and such which 8 year old me never would have even realised existed. Along with this 8 year old me would’ve been happy to know that my little family back then has now expanded and I am an auntie to 5 lovely children as well as being a godmother and having a closer relationship with all my siblings and parents among other achievements 🙂

So my answer is probably yes 8 year old me would be proud of me if they could see me now because I’m exactly where I want to be in life at the moment, working towards what I want and growing up twelve years on I have gained a lot.

I do have a picture of me at 8 but I won’t post it because it’s too cringy! but thank you for reading, feel free to follow or like 🙂

10 Little Things About Me

Okay so I thought I would do ten little things I may not have mentioned before about me and I hope this helps you to feel like you know me better 🙂 Enjoy!

  1. I used to be Hello Kitty crazy – Quite literally not long ago everything I had was Hello Kitty, some may see it as babyish but quite a few people saw it as cute and I liked it so went with it. Now I am older I sort of fell out of love with the idea of Hello Kitty now I just buy my nieces pieces of clothing and things with it on instead of myself!
  2. I am not a big fan of the sun – This sounds weird, but sometimes I do not like the sun at all and would prefer if it rained or snowed. Although I am partial to some sunbathing when it is sunny outside!
  3. I was to scared to read the Goosebumps books – FACT. The front covers scared me and I never read them at all and probably wont ever.
  4. I am rather tall – Around about 5’8 – 5’9 something which I love and hate at the same time.
  5. I always used swap career aspirations – Until now I have always swapped career aspirations, you name it I wanted to be it once. Nurse, army soldier, firefighter, baker, lawyer, teacher… the list goes on but I think that partly is because when you’re growing up you do not know what you want to be therefore you imagine most jobs in a blissful and spectacular way when in reality there are advantages and disadvantages in every occupation. Now I am set on being a fashion journalist/editor and I am working towards that!
  6. I have a double jointed thumb – It sounds gross when you say it, but if you Google it or whatever all it means is my thumb can move back further than usual, hard to explain I am sure there are some YouTube videos you can watch that would explain it better visually 🙂
  7. I love pets – I used to have to 2 Russian Dwarf hamsters, a goldfish named Jaws that came from the circus and a German Shepard dog 🙂
  8. I used to be a tomboy – I cringe every time I think back to how I dressed and looked.
  9. This time last year I was worrying about… – Getting into University and getting a job!
  10. In A level we studied Frankenstein and Dracula, out of the two Franky was by far the best book and I learnt Dracula was just a book about sexually frustrated people according to my teacher.

Well that’s all hope you enjoyed 🙂

Who Says Maternity Wear Can’t Be Fashionable?

Okay I am not pregnant but I have noticed a lot of people explaining that they cannot find anything fashionable to wear whilst pregnant, however this is not true as there are many colourful and beautiful pieces out there for mothers to be to wear! I am writing this post for my sister in law in Japan who is expecting my to be niece or nephew! I know she likes to read my blog posts and has said she loves fashion as well so I thought I would write a special maternity post 🙂

Expecting a child is beautiful and you should feel beautiful too whilst you are expecting! If you love fashion then there is tons of options, such as the midi dress it comes in all shapes and sizes which is perfect because most retailers do special maternity midi dresses that still accentuate your bodies curves and are not to restrictive on your little baby bump. Also a great buy is loose fitting blouses and shirts which show elegance and beauty whilst still being comfortable.

As well as this tunics are often a good choice pick for mothers to be as they are flattering and come in a range of patterns and colours as well as being comfortable and easy to wear. When you’re expecting you want maximum comfort with a splash of fashion to make the perfect outfit if you love fashion and these two examples are great to go by! I personally would not wear high heels if you are quite heavily pregnant as I would swap them for comfy fashionable flat pumps or canvas shoes 🙂

Things I Miss From My Childhood

So everyone has things they miss from their childhood right? You may agree on some of these things with me, I myself was born in 1993 and the thing’s I am about to list are things that I loved when I was growing up! 🙂

Here it goes 🙂

  • Watching cartoons– Remember Arthur? Little bear? Rupert? Those shows made my childhood! 
  • Sega Drive – When I first played on my SEGA drive I never knew I’d grow up to love video games so much, thinking back to the graphics and quality of games to now is crazy!
  • Pokemon – I miss the mornings I got to watch Pokemon whilst getting ready for school, it was too cool.
  • Inflatable chairs – One of the best things ever…I had an inflatable green chair, I remember when everyone was going crazy for inflatable things, I even had a backpack! After I blew it up of course first.
  • Tamagotchi – Not the new ones that are around today but the really old kind of tamagotchi and I got my first one on holiday and it was baby pink and in the shape of an egg, my parents brought me and my siblings all one and I loved mine thought it was incredible.
  • Films – I once watched a film with my dad called The Tenth Kingdom, as scary as it was this was a great film still and even to this day after 13 years of it’s release and of me watching it I still remember the key parts!
  • Barbies – I had various barbies but my favourite was one that was mermaid whose tail changed colours in the bath and one where I could highlight her hair with some accessory thing I got with her, I miss these.
  • Stick on earrings – Those tiny little stick on earrings that came in the shape of moons and hearts, I liked them but they often got stuck in my hair or somewhere and I usually only ended up with one left…
  • Beanie Babies – I collected them for a long and perilous amount of time, there are bags of them at my parents house.
  • Jelly shoes – I proudly can say I owned a pair of silver glittery jelly heeled shoe sandals that I wore everywhere, even school. Apparently they sell them in some retailers now for adults so may just grab a pair! 🙂
  • Furbies – I had a furby and it was grey, I loved it till it kept me up all night every night with its talking and squeaking…then it found a nice home in the spare room away from me.

Well that is all for now guys hope you liked that little insight 🙂 Subscribe/follow or like 🙂
