I read a really inspiring quote the other day—the gist of it was that in this exact moment, you’re the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be. So basically, if there’s ever a time to do something, it’s now. I’m approaching the end of my 20s (send help!), and while it’s scary, it’s also exciting. I’m a list-maker and love to plan everything. At the start of each year, my best friend and I create a list, titled ‘PROJECT SLAY’. It sets the tone for the year ahead—goals, travel plans, and splurges. Right now, I’m planning what I want to achieve by the time I’m 30, and that involves ticking off my fashion bucket list.
