30 Before 30 - An Update!!

'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.'  Read original post - here 30 Before 30

So, The last time I posted, and set myself the 30 Before 30 Challenge I had 207 days to go - now where am I at....  207 61 days left!  Have I achieved any of my goals yet?  Let's have a look.

30 Before 30 Challenge


  1. Say hello and meet my best friends baby, she is due in October - 4 weeks to go!!!
  2. Choose a Tattoo and actually go through with it - Does Henna Count?
  3. Visit NewYork - (half way there - it is booked)  59 Days until I land in New York City
  4. Have a private reading with a Psychic
  5. Take a photo a day from now until then and keep a log of them - Getting there, have missed a couple
  6.  Read a book a month (starting tomorrow, suggestions for the first one please?) Well this is a fail already - I should have read 5 by now, I have only read 3
  7.  Reach 1500 Blog followers (would be amazing) ONE MASSIVE THANK YOU to you all.
  8.   Give up carbs for 30 days - I DID 16 and then failed.  I am starting this on 1st October in a bid to lose a stone before my birthday.  
  9. Try Cristal champagne
  10. Lose a stone (at least.. 30 also brings 2 sets of bridesmaids duties)  HOPING THE CARB FREE OCTOBER WILL HELP
  11. Own a designer handbag
  12. Eat a Bagel outside the Tiffany flag ship store
  13. Join the Anthony Nolan Register
  14. Have High Tea
  15. No meat for 30 days 
  16. Give Blood
  17.  Join the local Church - My Grandma is forever on my case about this.  However, our village Minister has left so I can't do this until they have a replacement, not an excuse, a fact
  18. Buy a large jigsaw and do it - Visiting Amazon in... 15 minutes
  19. Watch the God Father Collection - Sounds like my weekend is sorted
  20. Get married
  21. Start a family
  22. Buy a House
  23. Be amazed
  24.  Choose a signature lip stick and perfume. - I am almost there - it is the scent I'm having the hardest trouble with, trying to decide. 
  25. Hand write a letter to a friend
  26. Love and accept my body (that depends on nos 8.10)  
  27.  Find out my correct bra size - I was in Marks & Spencer a little while ago and the queue was massive - I will head back soon
  28. Take up a form of sewing and have evidence of completed work - Making a trip to Hobby Craft is on my todo list. 
  29. Buy Roller Blades and use them
  30. Realise that life really does begin at 30 - Ask me in 61 days!

THE COUNT DOWN IS ON

  1. Hello! I have only just come across your blog but this post got me super excited! I blog at 25to30.co.UK - the entire blog was set up to record my 100 things to do between 25 and 30! Whilst yours is a 1 year challenge I love reading other people's lists of this kind of nature! I was even more chuffed to see that we have several of the same ideas! I am currently half way through a meat-free September, I have a photography project on my list (not yet started) and I also have the roller blades on there! There are several other very similar posts, I want to read 100 books over 5 years (also failing), have a tarot reading, have high tea at the Savoy and visit the USA, among others that are really similar to some of yours :) good luck crossing them off over the next couple of months (and serious good luck to your best friend!) I shall keep an eye out for more progress :)
