Sob! These are the five signs that mean you’ve entered adulthood

There comes a point in every girl's life that you realise you've entered adulthood. It can be the most scary and terrifying time of your life, but you'll survive, we promise. 

And if you're not sure about it yet, here are five signs your days of being young and foolish are over (for the most part):
