Lifestyle | Achievements At 25

2015 is the year I turned the ripe old age of 25, or as my younger friends like to call it, a quarter of a century! At this age a lot of my friends are getting married, engaged, having babies & even though this hasn't quite happened to me, there are so many things I have achieved in my life & am proud of...

Throwback to when I first started blogging back in 2013.

1. After years of saving I'm officially a homeowner. It feels so so so so so good to finally have a house we can call a home.
2. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design. Granted I've not used it as a career, but I put the work in & came away with a fantastic qualification.
3. I have the best relationship imaginable with my boyfriend of four and a half years. We're going from strength to strength and it's great! I love being in love.
4. We've started our family with the cutest little puppy, I'm sure you'll have seen her all over my blog - She's a beaut & we're so proud of her.
5. I'm a complete home bird, but last year we moved to Leeds. Making new friends and adjusting to a new job had been tricky, but it's been so worth it! I'm so proud of being from the North East but I absolutely love living in Leeds.
6. I'm gaining a career to be proud of. I'll be posting more about this later on in the month.
7. I've traveled to various places around the world & seen some beautiful sights. I always want to travel more, but thinking back to the places I've been and the sights I've seen, it's incredible.
8. I've conquered fears. Stupid stuff from going to the dentist to riding down the scariest river rapids I think I've ever seen.
9. I've lived a pretty good life for a woman of 25. I've partied, laughed, cried, felt every emotion imaginable & it's made me into the kick ass woman that I am today.
10. I've raised money for charity. There's nothing like that fuzzy feeling you get when helping others.
11. I know who I am & what I stand for. I used to be ridiculously shy and now I'm a confident, independent (getting all Destinys Child) woman.
12. My little blog (duh, how could I forget?) I love this little slice of internet. It's the best thing I've ever done.
13. Knowing my body, when it's not working & what works best for it, health & clothes wise.
14. Eating healthily, and cooking a lot of meals from scratch. 
15. I can now manage my money like a boss! I think this comes hand in hand with saving for & paying a mortgage. Do i eat this week or do I get that cute top from Topshop. That's the way I look at things now. Boring I know, but it works for me.

What are you most proud of?

Lots of love | xclaireabella

  2. This is a lovely post - I turn 25 in a couple of months, so I definitely think I'll be stealing this idea ;) Congrats on everything you've achieved, so jealous of the puppy!
