Life Update | 30 Before 30!


It's my 26th birthday soon (Eek!) and back in 2014 I set myself the challenge of completing 30 things before I reached 30 years old. Since it's getting closer and closer by the year and now that I only have 4 years to go, I thought it was time to "get my head down" a bit and start trying to get some of my wishes crossed out!

Compared to last years check-up when I only had one thing crossed out, I'd like to say I've done pretty well! I've gone out of my comfort zone a few times and tried to be more spontaneous which is something that's still on my list as I think there's always room for improvement. I did have a few day trips on my own and my new boyfriend and the one  I'm most pleased with myself for doing is buying a diary and actually sticking to it!!

Obviously I'm still a long way off finishing my list and since my life has changed since I first started this, I thought it would be better if I changed a few to reflect my new aims and ambitions!
