Today is a very special day, and no it's not just because we ordered Nandos in for lunch. April 28th is the day of birth for the one and only Louise Pentland, who you might also know as the mega babe that is Sprinkle of Glitter off of YouTube.
Louise is one of our favourite people on the internet for loads of reasons. From her bubblegum hair to the magical little mini-me that is Darcy, we just can't get enough of her videos, so we figured it was only fair that we celebrate her special day in style.
So you grab the chocolate cupcakes, the pink balloons and the sparkly confetti, and we'll bring you 10 of Louise's best moments and her ultimate words of wisdom. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOUISE.
1. On remembering to listen to your own mind.
2. On doing what makes you happy.
"You can choose everything in your life. You can choose what you do, who you spend time with and who's opinions you take on board."
2. On dealing with negativity.
4. On moving on when things are difficult.
"Letting go takes courage and I'm glad I found it because life is so beautiful now. I hope if any of you are going through anything similar that you can find the courage to make the right choice. It's often hard to tell whether you should stick and work at something or when it's time to move on but think hard on it and you'll know.
"I'm sending you big loves if you are confused and scared, I've been there. Once you let go of the exhausting exercise of trying to change the unchangeable, you are free. It's incredibly liberating feeling to just accept a situation and move on, let go and carry on with your life. Anybody can do it, even if you think you can't."
5. On learning to love your body.
6. On gender equality awesomeness.
7. On recognising truly bloody ridiculous body image issues.
8. On being a mum.
"I made Darcy but Darcy has been the making of me. She has taught me a new kind of love and allowed me to find a new kind of strength. I walk with my head high and my heart full and one day when she's big enough, I will tell her how she made my life complete."
9. On finding the balance on life.
"Life is such a frustrating concoction of trying to be happy, trying to make other people happy, trying to succeed, trying to be humble, trying, trying, trying. My frustration is that I want to be all things 100% but with only 100 of those pesky per cents to go round, you gotsta spread them out a bit. That's the hard part... Something that trickled into my mind this evening as I watched my three year old sleep an easy sleep. I want to give her all of my per cents for always."
10. On losing someone you love.
Yaaaaay, love a birthday, we do.
