3 essential adulting things to learn

Adulting is so boring sometimes but, I’ll let you into a secret, it actually feels so good when you understand how to do something super adult-y. I’m talking the boring shit that your mum or dad always used (and still sometimes do) for you. Here are three adulting nightmares that we’ve overcome in the past year or so that I thought I’d offer some boring (but helpful) tips on. =&0=& Utilities are the one thing that no one wants to pay for, right? It’s so annoying. But, it’s even more annoying when you overspend on these things and don’t know how to save money. We learned the hard way and now we know exactly how to use our water heating without using the ‘boost’ button that costs loads of money! Yay. Some home shit that I’d massively recommend learning about is storage heaters if you live in a flat. These can rinse your money SO BADLY. We got a nasty surprise with our electric because we didn’t know how to use them properly so it feels awesome going into winter actually knowing what we’re doing now. Top tip:  Ask your landlord or estate agency people for all of the info on your boiler, your heating appliances and everything else that you might not know exactly how to use before you get a nasty bill. =&1=& Spending money on car stuff is the worst and remembering when to do it is even more annoying but it’s easier to get stuff sorted and spend £100 than to be stuck on a country road broken down when it’s raining. Check your brakes, change your tyres when you need to, get your service done like your dad always tells you too and don’t forget about your MOT because you could get in trouble for not having one if you get into an accident or anything. Top tip:=&2=&

The year runs away with us so quickly, doesn’t it? All of a sudden it’s September at the end of the week and we’re only a few months away from Christmas and then the dreaded New Year’s Eve rolls around and it’s back to making resolutions we might not keep. Stress!

I’ve had a think about the things that I want to achieve by the end of 2017. This year’s gone so, so quickly for me as I’m sure it has for everyone else but I’m determined to get some stuff done over the next few weeks and months!

6 series to binge watch if you don’t like Game Of Thrones

Yuhuh, I went there. Jon Snow, who? Sorry to all you hardcore GoT fans I’m just not down. It’s not that I don’t *like* it – I just wasn’t into it when it first kicked off and now you guys are so far in I couldn’t possibly catch up. Dungeons and dragons just aren’t really my thing so it was never going to be a huge hit with me. BUT. This is not to say that I don’t love me a good series. I do, and I’m going to tell you what’s hot in my world when it comes to binge watching.

But, there are so many things that people demonise these days like Instagram, the internet and hashtags like #inspo because they’re bad for people’s self confidence. I totally agree that it goes too far sometimes but I think that Instagram and Pinterest especially can be amazing for motivation and inspiration for yourself!
