cleanse, exfoliate, moisturise, sunscreen. always.

 dont cut your own hair. ok.. actually we KNOW you are going to cut it, but at least use decent scissors and dont do it when you have your period.

 cramps do not neccessarily go away after you have babies.

Parenting children is a very hard job. Parenting your parents is too.

 Value your health and fitness.

 take care of your feet.

 never wake a sleeping puppy.

 adopt all your pets from shelters.

 sleep when you are tired.

Put the milk away within a minute of finishing with it

Don't eat white bread regularly. Go for the ones with the fibre and the seeds. Know however, that it is much harder to tell if these breads have gone mouldy. If in doubt throw it out.

Never apologise if your laugh is "too loud".

If it feels right, then it probably is.


  1. My laugh is always going to be "too loud" for some. My life lesson: I don't need those people in my life.

  2. WE LOVE loud laughing people!! they are our favourite kind! NIce life lesson there too!
