Well I've gone a bit quiet on the blog front for the last week or so, for no reason other than life keeps getting in the way and sometimes I've just not been in the zone!  
So today I thought I'd do a bit of a different, fun kind of post about the little life crisis that seems to hit when you reach the ripe old age of 25!  Let me know if you can relate to any of it!  

1.  Realising that life isn't all like a filtered Instagram photo.  Yes that restaurant we ate in was delicious and looked great with a nice filter on it, but what wasn't photographed was the previous hour when we were picking through our vouchers and discount codes.  Plus the unnecessary, calorie laden side dishes were conveniently cropped out. 

2.  Money suddenly doesn't last very long.  Annoying things like bills come along and ruin your planned Boots spree; and sometimes you find yourself suddenly cross and ranting about what your taxes are paying for.  

3.  You discover a whole new world of beauty products.  If you make it to the Boots spree I mentioned, then you may find yourself wandering down the skincare aisles and casually picking up products with the words 'anti-aging' on them.  Then comes the 'do I really need this already?  I'm only 25.  I'm 25, of course I need it.  Right?'  

4.  TV dramas become something to look forward to.  Which in turn prompts you to re-assess life and start frantically planning a night out.  Do you know who killed Lucy Beale?  No, me neither.  Nope.  Definitely did not tweet a running commentary of Eastenders last week either.  

5.  Homeware hauls are as much of a thrill (or even more) as a clothes/make up haul.  Ikea vs Topshop is a very serious and difficult decision to make. 

6.  If you're single, you think everyone is already getting engaged and/or having kids.  If you're married with/without kids, you think everyone else is single and out all night every night partying.  

Can you relate to any of these things?!  Obviously, if you're younger than 25 do not let this worry you, being 25 is great, it's not old and I'm always a believer of the saying 'you're as old as you feel' - which would make me around 17 ha!  xx



  1. I'm 23 and can relate to absolutely all of those - homeware is way more fun than clothes at the moment!

    I can only imagine what I'll be like when I'm 25 ;)

    Love Lo at Notebook 54 xx

  2. Haha I absolutely loved this post! I'm 22 (so maybe not mid twenties yet but getting there!) and I can relate to all of these. I am obsessed with homeware and actually get more excited about buying that than new clothes! And I get far too into dramas/soaps.

  4. I'm under 25. I agree that you're as old as you feel. I feel 11. I'll feel 11 forever for sure lol.

  5. Dude I'm 23 and I've been having some quarter life crisis for a few weeks now. I am married tho so I'm not worried about that, just general stress like 'where is life going, am I stuck in this job etc' ugh!

  6. I'll be 32 this Spring and I still can related to most!

  7. Haha Oh dear I am only 21 and I feel like this is my life. I definitely am always rooting around for the voucher code on my phone or tastecard haha, and also like 3 starters, mains with sides etc you know it. Plus eastenders is of course highlight of our evenings, we don't miss it hahah! And money? What even is that? Pay the bills and rent= no make up clothes, or skip a bill for fun times ;) xx
