In fact, the fear started when I turned 25 and then it just kind of intensified and then calmed down once I hit 29, I thought well, maybe this is the traumatized acceptance phase? (It was.)
Then, my 30th birthday finally came and you know what? It was awesome! I felt more content and happy than I had for a long time and I realised I wasn't doing too badly...and I wasn't THAT old, not really... certainly not in the grand scheme of things.
Which is proof that the thought of something is usually worse than it actually is.
I'm now 31 (32 in a few months time) and you know what? It still ain't that bad...and edging slowly up to 40 isn't scaring me one bit, because I've realised that Holy Grail of, the older you get, the less you give a f**k!
& That, my friends, is where this list comes in..., if you're in your 30's and aren't taking life seriously, then this is for you, believe me, keep reading, you're in for a treat! #whereareallmy30sbi*chesat
To be honest, I've never really bought cheap makeup. I don't wear a lot of the stuff anyway, but I find buying and trying new products addictive (so this idea definitely intrigues me....what!?) and applying makeup is very meditative! So, if you're the same, then why not treat yourself now that you're in your 30's!? Show those 20-somethings who the main b*tch is by applying their blood to your face... #seemslegit
Ooooh, high heels! My mortal enemy!
It's a great idea, but spinal damage isn't really my thing, so I'll pass. Plus, I've kind of given up on heels, since I hit my 30's, I love my flats and trainers more than life itself! #boringmuch
Well, this is a brilliant idea! However, I lack the knowledge of money fraud (damn it!) BUT, I did quit my terrible job, went freelance and started my own business when I turned 30! I realised that I didn't to work 'for' someone ever again! & I've not...and now the place where I used to work is closing down. #gome #nothingtodowithme
A brilliant idea for a new business, ladies! & you heard it here, first!
Honestly, though, relationships and especially being single gets easier after you turn 30 because you realise that you hate men, love your own company and #foreveralone is now the dream instead of the problem. Being single is absolute bliss, believe me!
I haven't attempted this, but my guessing is that they really won't notice and it'll give you the chance to go off and live your best life. They'll be happy that you're being weirdly quiet and not giving them sh*t, so you'll be both be happy!
I'm not sure they'll 'love it', but it'll certainly 'spice' things up, don't you agree!? The perfect remedy for a long, drawn-out, boring marriage!
Perfect idea! Let everyone get their judgements out of the way in their usual 'twee', passive-aggressive manner that people seem to live so much, and then BURN them. I can imagine that would be quite healing.
This is true, 'Why Do I Have Heartburn?' is my particular (and daily) favourite. #killmenow
In all seriousness, I always had mad coloured hair when I was in my 20's, it was every colour you could think of...and 'a friend' actually told me that when I turned 30, that I shouldn't have crazy coloured hair anymore! So I dyed it purple...AND pink at the same time. #becausef*ckyouandyouropinions
Oh my! Why didn't I think of that when I was concerned about my eye bags and wrinkles!? Brilliant idea! It's also the perfect way to stop people from approaching me and trying to talking to me... #winwin
Oh yes, a hat for the sh*te hair days and sunglasses for the 'not slept in 6 weeks' eye bags. It's the essential over 30 tips.
Hey! I agree totally if an outfit works for you, then stick with it, don't let your 30's stop you! All I do is rotate 2 outfits and talk sh*t now, and it is THE LIFE.
Or anything, really! A sandwich board is the perfect, easy way to get your opinions and demands across with minimal effort. It's the perfect life tip!
Hey! I gave up wearing shorts when I was about 19, this is not a problem for me. #leggingsarelife
Well, I guess it would save time on the leg shaving, which is always a good thing because really, nobody ain't got time for that sh*t in their 30s!
Ah, okay...totally noted, but my stomach and abs are my best feature. I'm lucky enough to not have had kids yet, so my abdomen is currently flaunting itself undamaged, so I'll pass on this one!
I personally think fishnets are for life! #sodthoselobstertraps
What!? Over-sized glasses are the BOMB when you're over 30, erm, 3-day hangover and eye bags anyone!?
I didn't need to turn 30 to realise that flats are the best thing to ever put on your feet! (Apart from fluffy socks, of course!)
This is such a cute idea, but I have a better one, just down the bottle of vodka and live your best life! It's what I do and I'm okay.... (honest!)
