30 Before 30 Challenge

This year I say good bye to my 20s and I don't feel ready for it at all.  My 20s have brought me the happiest times of my life so far - I met and married my sweetheart, we have created a home together and I have my 2 babes to be thankful for.   However, I do feel I missed out on other things. Don't get me wrong, I have no regrets but perhaps I would have done a little restructuring with my timings. 

So,  207 days of being a 20 something lady left and it is about time I embrace this and have a little fun along the way.  I have set my self a '30 before 30' challenge - I am also not completely deluded, I have set more realistic goals, that are just a bit of fun.   There was no point saying I would do a bungee jump or climb Kilimanjaro (i'll save them for 40...).  I have cheated - but only slightly, numbers 20-22 were such big things before 30 that they count.

  2. Good luck with all your plans! I want to get a tattoo and actually go through with it too, i'm just nervous!


  3. Good luck!! I tried a 35 before 35 list....didn't make it hahaha. #2 made me laugh! I've wanted one for at least 10 yrs and finally got one about a month ago and love it!! Your list seems very doable :o) Have fun!!

    1. I have good intentions lets hope i have the will power

    2. You'll do it!! Here's a link to what I finally decided on for my tattoo (hope it works)

  6. I tried to do this and failed miserably although I may do a 40 before I'm 40... I'm 31 so got plenty of time to hit them! Good luck with your challenge x

  7. Haha this post was awesome! Even though I just turned 20 this is a really great idea :) I have tried giving up carbs before and I nearly died! I love the designer handbag goal though ;)
    I am a new follower by the way!

  8. This is a great list! My 30 before 30 is basically all about travel - go here, go there, see this, see that sort of thing!

  9. Great idea, good luck! I think I am going to make a list like this too. I would definitely include in mine getting a tattoo, having a psychic reading and visit New York!xx

  10. I absolutely love this list - you've got a such a wide range of wonderful things to do and achieve. I especially like 24 (to choose a signature lip colour and perfume - I need to do this to!) and 17 (join the local church) :)

  11. This is such a good idea! Love the find out my correct bra size! I swear every time I get measured they tell me different size, it drives me crazy! xx Rena
    Kiss and Make Up

  12. Get the tattoo, girl! Just make it something meaningful. I have 4 and I love them all! But it's good to make a to-do list... helps keep things in perspective.

    Great post! And your blog rocks! Check mine out. Maybe we can follow each other :D

  13. I have been wanting to do something like this for a while, but haven't actually sat down to write out the things I want to do. I think this is such a great idea, and you've inspired me to finally do it!

  14. Really enjoyed this - what a great list. I hope I do a lot of these things before I'm 30 too :) xx

  15. I love the idea of this! I hope you get to do all that is on your list!
    Im turning 20 next week , hate saying goodbye to my teenage years!

    Check out my new blog:

  16. My favorite is #13. I've always wanted to know what it's like to be hypnotized!! I'd have to have someone there I trust too, because you never know... such an inspiring list! I have only 2 years left before I turn 30, so I need to get cracking and making my own list now!

  17. such a fun post idea! my favourite is no 29! wish i could justify investing in rollerblades haha x
