10 THINGS I WISH I COULD TELL TELL MY FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD SELF

Embarrasing picture for you all to enjoy, I'm on the right.

1. Cutting your own fringe is a bad idea...

2. The boys you think you're in love with will disappear from all aspects of your life so don't be disheartened when they act like dicks.

3. Enjoy school because when it ends, life gets stressful.

4. Don't dye your hair black, it will take years to get back to a colour that doesn't make you look like you're on your deathbed.

5. Red patent court shoes that cost you £15.99 from New Look are not cool.

6. Savour having no responsibilities other than keeping your Tamagotchi alive. 

7. Don't bother with false nails because you won't be able to do anything practical with them on and will end up looking like an idiot.

8. LESS IS MORE. Use this motto in regards to most aspects of life ie.. makeup and alcohol.

9. Impulse is not a substitute for perfume.

10. Remember, while dealing with the dramas of secondary school life (of which there will be many) that none of it will matter to you in five years.

  3. Oh if only we could go back and try to get through to our younger self... I wrote a post about what I'd like to tell my 15 year old self last year... it's interesting to see what we thought was important and what really ended up being important... :-)

  10. I still cut my fringe, is that bad? xD

    Love this post, it really made me giggle. I wish I could tell myself that less is more too. Ooooh the clumpy mascara and inch thick foundation! *cringes*
