Millennial mindset πŸ’Έ

After I posted my No spend Feb video back in Feb (funny enough πŸ™ƒ) I had a lot of positive feedback and people telling me how I gave them inspo to try and save a few pennies.

The outcome from my quiet month was great and I really noticed the difference but here we are nearly 5 months later and I’m back to my old ways.

Why is it in this day and age money just doesn’t seem as precious and valuable as it once did?

I obviously mean this not as literal as the words may read but we definitely have more of a “treat yourself” mentality which just seems to be okay? Me myself, am super guilty of it – I wake up one day and go “right you need to save this this and this next month so stop” or I could wake up the next and go “I’ll be fine though, I always am”

Is there one attitude that’s better to have or should we be living in the now?

When I think what my mum had when she was my age I freak myself out – a baby a job and a mortgage. I’m just here cuddling up to my unicorn teddy every night hoping to wake up looking like someone from Love island πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Savings and me basically don’t exist and I don’t really get wether I should be panicking or should I be realising my wage just about sees me through one month to the next and it’s virtually impossible to put anything away.

I do pay into a pension though so I’m basically safe right? πŸ™ˆ

The real question from this post is; is the mindset of us millennials the way it should be? Or should we be saving that extra Β£3.40 from the Instagrammable flat white we’ve just bought for the future.

Are you guilty of having the “millennial mindset” or are you savvy?

Speak soon,

Independent woman πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

All the ladies who independent throw your hands up at me πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

If you didn’t already have that song in your head by reading the title – you do now, thank me later.

Beyonce is most certainly the queen in all senses and is all for power to the female; even after it came out that her husband has cheated on her in the past, she still portrays confidence and being independent like no other.

Recently another well known scandal has been Khloe Kardashians baby daddy allegedly cheating on her.

Now I’m sorry but 100% the first thing that springs to my mind is THERE IS NO HELLA HOPE FOR ME IN THE WORLD IF THESE CRAZY ASS MEN BE CHEATING ON THESE ANGELS?!

So all these scandals and obviously well known occasions of people cheating on each other – (male and female I may add, both are guilty) just got me thinking for this post.

Is coming across as a super independent person a turn on or a turn off? Does being independent in a relationship make your partner feel unwanted or is it needed? Does your confidence take a knock if you have been cheated on or can you still be independent?

Being confident and independent is always something I think about when meeting a new partner. Is it daunting for someone to approach you if you’re giving off alla the feels that you can get by on your own?

We could be the most confident person in the whole entire world or feel 2ft tall some days – but does the way we carry ourselves affect a potential or current relationship?

I wouldn’t class myself as confident 24/7 but I would however say I’m independent.

My independency would be more in the sense of I can make my own decisions, I can go places on my own, I can buy my own shit, I rely on myself.

is that because I am single and that’s all I know? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

If any brave man does approach me one day at least I know I can safely say I’ll be going into something as an independent woman.

Speak soon,

Lotsa love
