Welcome!
Hello There! I'm Kayleigh. A Twenty something adult from the heart of Sussex, just along the south coast of England. Thank you for taking a look at my corner of the internet. I love Books, Tea, Plants, White Wine, Home Interior and everything Disney! On my blog, you'll find lots of lifestyle posts on being an actual adult . . . anyone else feel like they aren't responsible enough? Adulthood is a journey that we are constantly learning new lessons or gaining new experiences as well as dealing with the struggles we may face. I'm a huge believer in positivity and trying to find the positive in a situation rather than focusing on the negative of the situation. I struggle with anxiety, I know what it's like to live with a head full of worries as well as the ongoing battles you face. If you want to know more, just let me know and thank you for taking a look around!

- - - Life's too Short For - - -

Life is short. FACT 

We don't know what moment will be our last or how long we have. 

We have many moments in life that are enjoyable ... going on holiday, having a child, a new job .... the list is endless. Life is too short for things you don't want to do or things you dislike. I thought I'd share a few things that I prefer not to waste time on.

HOLDING GRUDGES 

Life is too short to waste energy, thoughts or emotions on people who aren't worth it. People come and go in our lives, we learn lessons from these experiences and instead of letting it all build up, it's easier to let it all go and move on. 

IRONING 

Don't get me wrong, I iron clothes or items that need ironing. But I won't go out of my way to iron everything, like socks, underwear or things that don't need ironing. It just takes up too much time and I'd rather iron when I need something. 


NOT FINISHING THINGS 

Okay, I mean this in the term of a book you aren't enjoying, a cocktail you've brought and isn't nice, a slice of cake that seemed nice but actually is gross. If you aren't feeling it, there is no point in continuing. When it comes to a book, I can't stand having to force myself to read the next chapter, or taking a sip of that cocktail you really aren't enjoying but it's alcohol or eating a piece of cake that is suppose to be enjoyed because cake is life! 


DRYING AND STRAIGHTENING MY HAIR 

I used to be one of those girls who had to straightening their hair everyday and not leave the house with their hair wet. My hair had to be perfect, except perfect can damage your hair. I'll use heating tools for special occasions and style it if I'm going out for the night or a day out somewhere but for an everyday trip to the town or going to work, I'm happy to leave it natural and leave the house with wet hair! (I have a natural wave to my hair) 

FAKE FRIENDS

I don't have time for people who pretend to be friends with you. Either you want to be my friend or not. I've just had one to many experience with trusting people and then they show their true colours behind your back. Life is too short to waste time on people who don't matter. 

FAKE TAN 

Okay, I tried to fake tan once and it was a disaster. I attempted to tan my legs as I had bad tan lines. It turned out patchy and it didn't look good. I'll never try and do it myself again, I just don't have the patience. I hid my legs under jeans and prayed no one saw them! 


Those are a few things I don't have time for in life. 

What is your life too short for?
