Dear 14 Year Old Me...

Being the ripe old age of 22, I'd like to think I've learnt a few things since my early teenage years. Now this ranges from boys/best-friend troubles to horrific makeup mishaps so I've covered a few topics, but if you find something I've not mentioned, please leave a comment below!

Oh the nostalgia

So anyway, now I'm eight years older, and reasonably wiser (that's debatable), here are the eight things I wish I could tell little old me:

1. Hey there little Izzy, I've put this one first so you understand its importance. Stop plucking your eyebrows! They take forever to grow back and you'll still be paying for it in eight years time. Trust me, I would know. #EyebrowsAreSistersNotTwins

2. Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse is a right of passage when it comes to foundation. You'll buy it from Superdrug in the colour 'Sand'; it won't really match your skin tone or do an awful lot for your complexion but play along anyway because this is the start of your makeup journey.

This Mousse is not Dreamy as a MATTEr of fact ;)
 3. Just because Urban Decay sell bright blue and purple glitter eyeliners, it doesn't make it cool to put it all over your eyelid. Mizz and Cosmo Girl are lying to you. FYI I'm still in possession of these eyeliners. They hold a special place in my heart and I just can't bring myself to get rid of them...


4. It's a spot. Everybody has them at some point, and literally, nobody cares. Just whack on a bit of concealer and forget about it, you have far more important things to focus on. 

5. So you fancy a boy at school and he doesn't fancy you back; he even goes as far as to insult you and call you ugly. Please don't waste any time crying over him. (But do eat lots of ice cream, cause why the hell not.) Besides, you'll get the last laugh when he pops up on Facebook in about 5 years time. What's Facebook you ask? Well I'm about to tell you...

6. It doesn't matter how many people 'heart' you on Bebo or follow you on 'Myspace', it honestly does not determine your level of cool. There's a new social media platform coming your way called 'Facebook', and the front camera on your diamante-embellished Blackberry Curve is going to be used for something called a 'selfie'. (But more on that in a few years.)

Not even joking

7. Please don't be too sad that Gilmore Girls has finished, (#LukeAndLorelaiForever). There's a new girl soon to be gracing your television screen; her name is Serena Van Der Woodsen and she is so cool. 

P.S. Gilmore Girls is coming back, YAY!! 

8. Finally: keep singing and writing. You're going to start a little music channel on Youtube and people at school are going to end up seeing it. You'll get super embarrassed when one of the P.E teachers congratulates you on your homemade music video in the middle of the school cafeteria but keep at it. Who know's, you might even get to play Glastonbury one day...

 That's all from me for now. Make good choices!

Thanks for reading your Dose of Nostalgia




  1. Hi! This is Daisy Chris's daughter and I really love your blog! (I am reading them all from the beginning at the moment!) I was wondering if you can give me any advice on friendship as I've just had a massive argument with my closest friend :( x

    P.S. I'm 13 years old and thinking of starting a blog :) any tips on creating one for a first timer?? :D

    1. Hey Daisy!! Aw thanks so much, I'm glad you like the blog :) Ohh no, arguments are the worst! Well you can email or Facebook me about it if you want so I can find out what happened? My dad and I are actually popping round yours tomorrow lunch time; will you be there?

      As for the blog, you definitely should give it a go! It's such a fun way to express yourself and I'll definitely read it :D
      Find a few topics you're really interested in (so for me it's beauty and shopping and things), I have a friend that writes about books and baking, one that does purely fashion) and maybe plan out a couple of blog posts in advance? But pictures are soooo important, They make blog posts easier and more interesting to read and much prettier!

      Let me know if I can help with anything, my email is

      Lots of love xxxx

    2. OK thank you :)

      Unfortunately I won't be at home tomorrow lunch as my school finishes at 3:35 :(

      I would love to create a blog about friendship/life advice and tips and also maybe fashion. But I have no idea what to call it! :/

      Thank you

    3. Ohhh that's a shame that I'll miss you! :(

      Ah that sounds lovely! Well Daisy is such a lovely and interesting name maybe put it in the title. Like WhatDaisyDid or DaisyChainsAndPaperPlanes or something like that? I can have a bit of a brainstorm if you want?


    4. Omg I love that name DaisyChainsAndPaperPlanes! It would be very helpful if you could come up with some ideas for me actually but you don't have to!
