11 Things I Wish I Could Tell My 13-Year-Old Self


I'm turning 23 in September, which means it's been nearly a decade since I started my teen years. I've still got a long way to go and a lot to learn but, if time travel existed and I could visit myself all those years ago, here's what I'd have to say.


01: That hairstyle where you leave one long piece of hair out the front of your ponytail isn’t a good look

02: It might not feel great right now but broken hearts do mend, and the first is always the toughest

03: You won’t grow up to be a {insert latest job idea here}, or if you do your mind will change 1000 times on the way, so don’t stress so much


04: Dying your hair every five minutes isn’t doing it any favours

05: Try not to be so worried about what’s going on behind your back, your real friends will – and do – come through for you in the end

06: If you put your phone and your laptop down for an hour the world will not end and that boy will not disappear {and if he does, he definitely isn’t worth it}

07: In the future you’ll win running challenges at your gym and be invited to play netball for an Island first team – you really can do it if you put your mind to it, so don’t be so scared of losing that you don’t play the game

08: Don’t let people get to you. It’s a lot easier to let things go than you think

09: A hoodie and trackies tucked into Ugg boots is actually a really terrible look, even if it is Jack Wills

10: A belly button piercing is a bad idea: it’s uncomfortable, easily infected and actually doesn’t look so great. You’ll get rid of it in a few weeks

11: Most importantly {and the piece of advice you most definitely will not listen to}… stop being so concerned about boys and enjoy your friendships. Those boys won’t last but those girls will, and you’ll be forever thankful for them.


Until next time,

    1. I totally agree... I wore elasticated waist band trousers and t-shirts with animals printed on when I was 13, but now they're out in better outfits than me! Thanks for stopping by lovely :)
