I’m not quite sure but the idea of commitment right now at this point in my life scares me. Not that anyone is there in the first instance and the only thing I’ve really commit to is an overpriced two year iPhone 7 contract. *sigh*
BE YOUR OWN BAE
I’m slowly getting out of my quarter-life crisis and a few things have happened in 2016 to make me realise life is way too damn short. I can happily admit I’ve come into my own this year; I’m slowly learning to go with the flow and if it means flying solo – who cares? I am my own bae after all. Here are a few ways you can be your own bae too:
Coffee, those shoes you’ve been eyeing up for week, a new book. As much as I’m trying to save, it’s also important to not completely deny yourself…
Staycation or vacation; getting out of your everyday surroundings is the best way to gain perspective, challenge yourself and find inspiration. I travelled solo to Milan earlier this year and it really helped me find confidence within myself and realise that my hand doesn’t need to be held every step of the way.

I cannot stress the importance of this; look after YOU. I wrote a post here and here where I’ve spoken about my favourite self care tips and how I implement them into my life.
Help others, it doesn’t have to be monetary donation, sometimes the gift of time is greater.
Learn/listen to something that discuss relationships in a positive (and negative light) for example…
The Receipts Podcast – I absolutely LOVE this series featuring four smart and funny girls discussing the perils of relationships, being a female and life in general.
Sex & the City – One of my guilty pleasures; I reckon I’m the Miranda…
BKChatLDN – Be warned some of the opinions on here are trash but it’s a good watch… ♻️
At the end of the day, the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. If it means taking a break from certain things or certain people to find out what you want or don’t want, so be it.
Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
