Looking back on my 20 before 20 list

Image
I turn 20 at the end of April and even saying that, well, it sounds kinda scary. I can't believe that I have (at the time of writing this) 44 days left of being a teenager. (I wrote this post a while back... now I only have 15!!!)

In some ways, I am apprehensive about "being in my twenties" and in other ways, I am so excited. I feel like my twenties will be the years I really come into myself after having a horrible experience being a teenager. The only reason I am sad about this part of my life ending is that I worry that I will get too caught up on what these years should have, could have and would have been if X,Y, Z didn't happen. I've come to realise though, that everything does happen for a reason, and I am looking forward to going into my twenties as strong as ever.


I thought it would be fun to look back on the list of 20 things I wanted to do before I turned 20, which I made last year as I turned 19. I filmed myself talking through the list for my YouTube…

If you are new around these parts, hey! I'm Tamzin, I'm almost 20 at the time of writing this and I post things on here about food, mental health, university life, and all things in-between! I am super passionate about all of the above and I often make YouTube videos about them too. You can check out my channel here - YouTube.com/tamzinlena.

Today I thought I would share with you my new favourite recipe that I have created. I have baked cookies and spoke about it previously on this blog, most notably the times I have recreated Tanya Burr's infamous ones. You can check out those blog posts here and here.


These cookies however, I believe are the best of the bunch. After a bit of trail and error, I think I have mastered it. That's not to say that these cookies can not be amended however. I am a big advocate of changing things in recipes to suit your needs and/or resources. I'll elaborate more on this later. For now, here's the basic recipe and method. I prepared m…

Getting ready for post-lockdown lashes! | falseeyelashes.co.uk

A few weeks ago now (pre-lockdown), I was sent some pairs of gorgeous eyelashes from falseeyelashes.co.uk. I got to wear a pair of them on a night out before all of this happened, and I will say, they are my favourite lashes to date! (The ones I wore were the eye candy ones!)




I cannot wait for another night out once all of this is over! The thought of being able to get all glammed up again, wear a gorgeous pair of lashes and be with my friends is keeping me going. Falseeyelashes.co.uk is currently open, so if you want to stock up on some of your favourite lashes, ready for that first night out back, why not head over to their website and browse their endless supply of high quality, stunning lashes? They have lashes to suit every taste. Personally, I really like fluffy lashes, if that makes sense! Light but still dramatic enough to really make my eyes POP! 
I hope life is treating you all well at the moment, I know it's tough, but let's just keep focusin…
