A pretty girl’s guide to hobbies in your 20’s

Have you ever been stumped by the question, "So, what do you do for fun?" We've all been there. You stammer, maybe mutter something about Netflix, and an awkward silence follows. It's a surprisingly common struggle, especially in our 20s.

Your twenties are a whirlwind. You're building a career, navigating new relationships, and figuring out who you are as an adult. It's no wonder hobbies often get pushed aside.

But here's the good news: 2024 is the year of self-care. We're prioritising our well-being, relaxation, and yes, even fun.

This post is your guide to rediscovering (or discovering for the first time) your passions.  We've curated a list of elevated activities that will help you invest in yourself and make the most of life.
