Welcome to club 30

15 things I have learned in my 30’s

As I approach turning 32, I Couldn’t help but reflect on years gone by & things I have learned being part of club ’30’….



  1. Treasure your family and friends. Don’t miss a chance to tell them you love them. Life is just too short.
  2. Surround yourself with positive, uplifting people and kick the ‘negative nelly’s’ to the kerb. We all like a little moan from time to time but listening to those who do it non stop? It’s just draining….
  3. Invest in good skin care. A cheap face wipe & occasional cleanse using that product that you found in the clearance section isn’t going to cut it. Work on the canvass in which you apply your brushes (make up).
  4. Keep learning. It feeds the soul. I love learning new things. If only I could go back to school now & watch that textiles lesson more carefully!
  5. Be kind always. You never know what anyone is going through at any given time. Sprinkle that s**t like confetti.
  6. Not everyone will like you. That’s OK. You can’t please everyone. You are not a bar of galaxy.
  7. Invest in good shoes. I’m not taking about the occasional sky scraper heel for the odd dinner out (if you can still walk in them at my age I applaud you haha) . I mean for day to day life. For work, for running, for looking after the littles. Do not commute to work/spend long amounts of time in Primark ballet pumps and get yourself down to Clarks. Look after your feet! (Not an AD)
  8. True friends are hard to come by (seriously) and you are never too old to make new friends. I met some of my best friends at University and have met some fantastic friends via Instagram in the last few years. The kind you meet up with and DON’T talk about social media.
  9. Weddings and babies bring out the best and the worst in people. People have been lost along the way. Makes me sad in parts but I am grateful for the time spent & lessons learned. 😊
  10. It’s ok to charge for your services whatever they may be. Hand made shell bracelets, psychic readings, personal training! Time is money and let’s face it we all need to pay the bills.
  11. Life is full of twists and turns. Accept change and roll with it.
  12. Your nose really doesn’t stop growing….
  13. Comparison is the thief of joy. Stop comparing your journey to others and concentrate on watering your own grass.
  14. Water in between alcoholic drinks is the way forward. Tonic water on ice is also the best hangover cure.
  15. Nobody is perfect. Learn from the past, live in the present and know that the best is yet to come!

Can you relate?

Until next time,


Lucy x
