Being 20-something is not easy.

Hmmm so where to start - as the title of my post 'being 20-something is not easy', this really is an under statement. In fact I guess you could say no matter you age things are never easy unless you are building up your career and therefore are on the right path to achieving what you want. Life is all about getting that dollar - regardless of age - we are judged upon that sole factor 'income' and 'degrees'. To me having a degree is fantastic yes - but what you do with it after achieving it is what really matters to getting on the your right road to success and this is not always easy, especially when jobs are not that easy to come by in the field you want to pursue.

I remember the days when I thought working in an office would suit my lifestyle - I found office work to be pretty draining and the repetitive workload made me realise this was just not me. Fashion however was something entirely different and has since became a huge part of my life - be it blogging around the city - hunting down statement pieces to inspire others. This was somethin' I was totally diggin' and it kind of clicked that this was something I would possibly pursue further down the road. Ultimately sometimes things are not planned and 'fall' into place. Without that passion and drive factor you have to ask yourself is this something I really want to pursue later down the road? If it's not then it is never too late to change it - even with the risks involved.

Remember Carrie Bradshaw in SATC saying 'When I first moved to New York and I was totally broke, sometimes I brought Vogue instead of dinner. I found it fed me more.' This is totally relatable in some cases when it comes to changing your path. I am sure it is completely worth it in the end when you are doing something you love with drive, passion and power. Ultimately doing something you love is far better than doing something you hate.

Here's to all the millennials doing what you love.

Stop killing your dreams and follow your heart.

I felt like mixing it up and thought why the hell not do a more personal post which maybe some of you can relate to. As I have grown I have realised how life is really nothing without taking risks. Go and chase that dream you had to start your own business, or that dream of becoming the next international designer - who says you can not do so other than your own doubts? It is so sad to me to hear the word 'settling' forming into a conversation with a friend, family member or someone I barely know. I know life sometimes gets the best of us and hey responsibilities come to the forefront - but there is a reason to keep fighting and chasing after what you deserve - as long as your breathing keep going and pushing to your best self. I have always had an ideal approach in my mind that I would have a dream job by 24, be settling into my first mortgage paid property, climbing up the property ladder and so on. It was not until now I realised nothing comes that easy - unless your extremely fortunate that is. It is SO easy to sit back and look/over analyse all of the negatives and see what you have not achieved YET and let that get the best of us. But the settling 'category' was something I did not want to fall under. So here I am today chasing towards that dream job and trying to have a more positive outlook rather than just seeing all the negatives and obstacles to get there.

More importantly, do not forget that it is possible to achieve a lot more than just settling if you are not willing to let the 'risk' factor take over - and use your mind, spirit, passion and positive thinking to drive you forward - these very things will lead you onto the right road. I promise.

Here's to all the 20-something's chasing after THEIR dream and taking all risks to achieve it - regardless of self doubt.
