Nobody likes you when you’re 23.

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22.. wait a minute, that doesn’t seem right. No longer can I sing along to these T-Swift lyrics and mean it. I’m moving on in the world and Blink 182 are now who I’m connecting with lyrically because as they once said, nobody likes you when you’re 23.

Incase you’re putting 2+2 together and getting 5, I’ll spell it out for you.

Today is March 19th, which for me also means that I’m the birthday Princess today.

I know 23 isn’t exactly old at all, but I feel like it is. I’ve always felt like this though and I think it’s because my birthday is the first of my friends so I hit an age first before any of them. Well before any of them actually with the first being 5 months after me and the last of our group being 10 months after. I’m a bit of an odd one out with the 5 of them all having birthdays quite close together.

But enough about them because it’s my b-day.
I’m going to spend my morning of my 23rd hillwalking with one of my best friends and then spend some time with my gran and auntie.

Tonight consists of me going to see Little Mix (which I have not a single regret about, they’re so good) and then I’m going to get steam boat’d oot my nut. Which probably isn
‘t the best of ideas as tomorrow morning I’m heading to London and then Paris, but that’s for another post.

Happy birthday to me.

Hope you all have as great a day as I will! And I just wanted to say, thank you all so much for following my blog and actually taking time to read my posts and comment, it means a lot.


Is it March yet?

Just earlier today I happened to post about my travel goals and how I was planning this year to visit Barcelona or Paris as they’re basically within a stones throw of the UK.

Well.. Now I’ve got plans in process and it’s happening soon. 
It’s my 23rd (feel like I’m getting so old) in March and I had 3 weeks worth of holidays to take in work, which I’ve taken in March. This means my whole month is basically free and I thought if I don’t do at least a little travelling then, when will I? 

So I got thinking, where can I be going that will be a cheap trip (with America to save for I really probably can’t afford this, so needs to be as cheap as possible). I decided on Paris.

Wheels of planning are in process now. I’m going to go to Paris, probably just for the day or two and then London on my way home. I’m so excited, the last time I went to Paris was 7 years ago 2009 and it was a school trip so I’ve always felt I’ve never really experienced Paris to its fullest. I’m definitely going to make a change to that!!

Please help me out guys, if you had to visit Paris for the day what are all your must do activities, must see places, must eat/drink at?

Although I want the tourist aspect of it I want to see all the little nooks and crannys of Paris that most people probably don’t see.
Leave me a comment if you have any tips/advice!
