Lifestyle advice is everywhere nowadays and, although I’d love to share some, I am the last person to offer any. That’s why I thought I’d share some of my trusty learnings that have led me to being the successful sleep deprived mess I am today. Warning, sarcasm included.
- The easiest way to feel good about your home, tidy one room and only stay in there.
- The only way to tell the difference between acrylic or stick on nails is if you tell people if they are acrylic or stick on nails.
- Same as above but for life, people only know what you tell them. (That point is actually wise and useful, so, you’re welcome).
- Have a corner where you discard all your ‘maybe it’s clean enough to wear again’ clothes. Mine is a chair.
- Changing your bed sheets it’s a whole-day-job, and it sucks.
- Always carry around deodorant in your bag. If not for you, then for someone else.
- Always keep a spare packet of toilet roll in an unused cupboard…you’ll need it.
- Everyone wears their bra for a week then puts it away for 3 days then wears it again like it’s clean…even though we know it’s not.
- Learn how often you need to wash your bra – I don’t yet know but it seems important.
- If you’re taking a selfie, clear everything away from behind you; if you want to give the illusion you’re super neat. Or own your mess – who cares?!
- No-one has time for ironing their clothes, really they don’t. Let’s not kid ourselves.
- Cleaning your house is only fun when it’s sunny, the windows are open and there is pop music playing. Or you’re angry.
- Have a room or space dedicated to the stuff you ‘don’t need right now but might need later’. Then you’ll never have to part with it but it won’t cluster your day-to-day life.
- ALWAYS pack a lunch for work the night before. It’ll make an excellent dinner when you ultimately forget it the next morning, plus you can buy takeaway for lunch.
