24 Things I Love

I've been wanting to share more of myself on Smart Twenties, so here are 24 things I love.


I’ve been wanting to start sharing a bit more of myself on this blog.

Even though I write about a lot of things that are very personal to me, I feel like I haven’t really said much about who I am. And that’s mainly because I suffer from thinking I’m an extremely boring, average person with nothing new to say. But this isn’t really true of me (and it’s not true of you either) so I thought that even though I think I’m a pretty boring person I’d share anyway.

Since I turned 24 a few weeks ago, I thought I’d share 24 things I love (and yes, I know a lot of them aren’t actual ‘things’ but you get the idea). So here they are, in no particular order:

  • Anything to do with breakfast, especially oats.
  • Indoor greenery. Everywhere.
  • Laughing until I cry/my cheeks hurt from smiling.
  • Singing and dancing in my car like a crazy person.
  • Podcasts, interviews, commencement speeches, TED talks.
  • Reading the lovely emails and comments I get from the readers of this blog (thank you!)
  • Organising my bedroom and my life in general. I’m a fan of the plan.
  • A big glass of icy cold water with a straw.
  • Reading books. Listening to other people read books. Talking about books. Blogging about books. Having pretty books on my bookshelf.
  • Inspirational quotes. Plus anything Oprah has ever said. And Steve Pavlina’s blog.
  • Cats (because they make me love them by playing hard to get).
  • Dogs (because they’re always so happy to see you – but don’t get me wrong, I am a cat person).
  • Cider and vodka. Preferably not mixed together.
  • Spontaneous weekend trips.
  • The sound of rain (thank you rainymood.com).
  • Super deep, real, honest, meaningful conversations.
  • Hugging. Spooning. Cuddling. Snuggling.
  • Online TV (Grey’s, Kardashians, How To Get Away With Murder, Revenge, Suits, Rachel Zoe Project, Pretty Little Liars, The OC, Homeland, Entourage, Gossip Girl… I could go on).
  • Watching online TV while hugging/spooning/cuddling/snuggling.
  • Chocolate sultanas and bullets plus anything in or related to the caramel family.
  • Bikram Yoga.
  • Pretty flowers. In a vase. On my desk.
  • Meeting people that I click with straight away.
  • Travel – because it forces me outside of my comfort zone in the most exhilarating way.

What are some of your favourite things?

I’d love to know more about you too – what are some things you love?

Don’t forget that comments are always welcome and appreciated – I’d LOVE to hear what you think!
