#ALegacyOfMe: What Will You Be Remembered For?

What legacy will you leave behind in the world? That's a pretty big question, isn't it? Do you want to be remembered for your personality, for your smile, for your love of music or your outrageous fashion choices? The team over at www.slatergordon.co.uk have asked me to have a think about what legacy I would like to leave behind, as part of their #ALegacyOfMe campaign to raise awareness surrounding the importance of having a will. And it's really got me thinking. What would I like to be remembered for? What do I think people will remember me by?

1. The sweet smell of Yankee Candles. I love Yankee Candles and it's no secret amongst my friends and family. Most birthdays and Christmases contain at least a few Yankee Candles and whenever my family doesn't know what to get me, a Yankee Candle is their safest bet.

2. Every Michael Jackson banger. Again, it's no secret that I love Michael Jackson's music so, naturally, every time an upbeat Michael Jackson belter comes on I like to think that I would be thought of - whether that's me attempting to do a crappy moonwalk, blasting him out of my speakers or singing my heart out at drunk karaeoke.

3. Beauty and the Beast. Seriously, I have loved Beauty and the Beast since I was so young. Every opportunity to dress up at school, I was Belle. Every time I got to choose a film to watch, it was Beauty and the Beast. I had the yellow dress, the doll, the gloves, the ring, the book, everything. The funniest thing about it? I identified so much with Belle because she was the only Disney princess who read. My mum still wells up when she watches Beauty and the Beast now because of how much it meant to me when I was little - so I think it is something that will always remind my family of me.

4. That one time I was Tinkerbell. My five seconds of fame started and finished when I was 11 and I played Tinkerbell in the local village Pantomime. It was a pretty big thing, there was a humungous stage and I was in the newspaper. Ha... who am I kidding, no one remembers that (apart from my nan - she had the newspaper page framed).

5. My blog. My blog means a lot to me and has brought me some wonderful opportunities, so it goes without saying really that I would like to be remembered for this. I like to think that my friends and family would always scroll through my long ramblings and witty (ha) stories, and that my travel advice and lifestyle tips would be helpful to others for a long time after.

Of course this post was a bit of a jokey one - I didn't want to write anything too heavy or morbid, but on a serious note I would love to be remembered for my hard work that has gone in to my blog and a wonderful writing career (that is unfolding as we speak).

What do you want to be remembered for? What legacy do you want to leave behind?

  1. I think it's great to think about the legacy you would like to leave, I have no idea what mine would be though, I guess the kindness of my children would be high on the list.

  2. I think i will always be remembered as the person who had a 20k makeup collection

  3. Aww this is a sweet post. I like MJ music and yankee candles. xx

  4. Ahh I love your legacy! Beautiful inclusions! I would like to be remembered for raising awareness of babyloss, for fighting for better maternity care, for raising rainbows and proving there is a life after loss, and for being the best Mama to five very special children. xx

  5. That's a very interesting question. I'm hoping it will be for something good like my kindness and looking after my kids and family.

  6. I think I'd be remembered for moaning about getting no sleep and trying to blog, but being useless at it! LOL

  7. I'd like to be remembered for my loyalty, friendship and love given. Also my sense of style and flair and the fact that I lived for new adventures and experiences.

  8. Such an interesting post! I have no idea about mine, but would love to be remembered for being helpful.
