We Only Regret The Chances We Didn’t Take

We Only Regret The Chances We Didn’t Take

‘In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.’ You don’t want to look back at your life and remember all of those wishes and dreams that never came true, because you didn’t try. Instead you need to make them reality! If you […]

‘Normality is a paved road…’

‘Normality is a paved road…’

Normality is a paved road_

‘Normality is a paved road: it’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.’


Why be normal? Why be a follower? Truth is, you shouldn’t. It is your life, so live it how YOU want to. Don’t live your life for anyone else! There’s no point trying to impress those around you. Throw yourself into your life full force. It is all or nothing. Take your dreams and make them reality! Life will be harder at times, but you have to brave through it, and look towards the light at the end of the tunnel. Make the most of your life, and do what makes YOU happy!!

Stop Wishing, Start Doing!

‘Stop wishing, Start doing!’ Many of us dream about what we want to do in the future, and what we would’ve done in the past. Some of us dream big, some small. Although, instead of watching every little opportunity pass by, we need to do […]

Iced Chai Tea Recipe

I hate all hot drinks with a passion, although I’ve always wanted to like them. Instead, recently I bought some chai tea bags, with the idea to make some iced tea. I made this for the first time earlier this week, and had to make it again for you all to try out, as it is so nice!

Step 1: Put the milk, sugar, and tea bags into a saucepan.

Step 2: Bring it to a boil, whilst stirring frequently.

Step 3: Once boiling, remove it from the heat, and allow it to stand for 4 minutes.

Step 4: Chill it in the fridge for about 1 1/2 hours, or until completely cold.

Step 5: Pour it into a mug/glass (in my case I used a mason jar), and add some ice cubes, cinnamon and nutmeg on top of it.

And that is seriously how easy it is! I think the hardest thing is the wait for it to cool, but it is really worth it!! This drink tastes AMAZING, and I know what I’m going to be having all summer long!!

I hope you all enjoy this recipe just as much as I do, and let me know in the comments how you get on!!

"If plan A doesn’t work, don’t worry."

“If plan A doesn’t work, don’t worry, the alphabet has 25 more letters” This is a great quote to keep in mind. It is actually quite similar to the first quote I posted, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll still land among […]

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door


This is such a motivational, inspirational quote. To me this quote is saying, that things don’t always come easy, but with determination and focus you can find your way around anything. This is telling us that when opportunity doesn’t knock, you need to take control. Create those opportunities yourself. Not everything in life will come easy, and it will take a lot of hard work, but with that motivation you will get somewhere. If you have your mind dead set on what you want, and you go out of your way to get that, it will happen!

As well as ‘building a door’, sometimes it just takes time to try to search for that door needed. There are plenty of opportunities around, waiting, you just have to get out there and take them!

XOXO
