This was my philosophy for managing my finances before I started working full time: spend. everything. In my first year of university I’d end up blowing (maybe too much) money at clubs, in my second year my flat and I were ripped off by our estate agent and thus I spent the year swimming in my overdraft and in my third year I traveled to Rome, Miami, The Algarve and Malta using my student budget and internship money. Would I recommend it? Well, it really depends. Some people think ahead and start saving as soon as any money hits their account; but I was personally told to do the above, i.e. blow it all and start worrying about finances when I had a regular, stable income. Once I started working, of course I had to rethink my philosophy. I had to start “adulting”. Managing finances is something we all do differently and something a lot of people want to know about, so I thought I’d share a few major rules I (try) to stick to, to make sure I’m “adulting” as effectively as possible.

2017 Advice Favourites

fashion, blogger, advice, motivation, style, inspiration, self motivation, self development

I started writing advice posts because I thought these would be the types of posts I would’ve valued growing up. I’m not exactly ancient (I’m only 22), but when I was super young we were still using dial-up internet, wifi wasn’t really a thing and touch screen phones totally weren’t cool (did they even exist is the question). Social media was MSN, MySpace, Bebo and Piczo. You definitely didn’t jump on the internet if you wanted any type of advice, you just sort of worked through things as you grew. But now, the internet is so accessible; be it on our phones, laptops or at work, we spend the majority of our time on the internet and a lot of us look towards the internet for advice (e.g. “how do I gain more confidence?” or “how do I get an internship?” or even “how do I reduce by body fat percentage?”), so with a little bit of experience under my belt, I made this one of my focuses. Here are my favourite 2017 advice posts…
