Well lovelies, it happened, last month I turned 30. It is something that I wasn't really looking forward to. People ask me why I was so bothered about it and my answer is simple. I had children early 20s so they vanished. I am however looking forward to my 30s and what the will bring.
As you know, I set myself a 30 before 30 challenge months ago. Well here is how I did.
30 Before 30
Say hello and meet my best friends baby
Little Oscar was born on 15th October 2013 and he is absolutely gorgeous
Choose a Tattoo and actually go through with it
Fail! I still haven't quite decided what I want to get, I have an idea but it isn't enough to make me go through with it quite yet. I did however get a Floral Motif on my foot while I was on holiday in April so it was almost a pass.
On 15th November, my Husband and I arrived in New York City and a decade long dream came true.
We had the most amazing time. New York is absolutely magical and I hope to return one day.
Have a private reading with a Psychic
Fail! I would still love to do this, I have a telephone number for a lady that is meant to be amazingly accurate, however, I think i'm a bit of a chicken.
Take a photo a day from now until then and keep a log of them
I could not absolutely say for sure if I managed this - I do take a lot of photos so I'm saying PASS
Read a book a month
Ahem a total of 8 books should have been read - I managed 3. I should have said magazines!
Reach 1500 Blog followers
Thank you all so much I have achieved this goal and I am so grateful to you all.
Give up carbs for 30 days
I managed 16 consecutive days
Try Cristal champagne
I haven't tried Cristal yet, I will have this on my 40 list
Lose a stone (at least.. 30 also brings 3 sets of bridesmaids duties)
Since starting the list I have lost 10lbs.
Own a designer handbag
Fail! Though I was given a McQueen Scarf for my Birthday from my Sister
Eat a Bagel outside the Tiffany flag ship store
Breakfast at Tiffany's - we certainly did!
Join the Anthony Nolan Register
I promise come January this will be done!
Have High Tea
We definitely did this one in style, the day before my 30th we had High Tea in the Plaza Hotel. My waiter sang Happy Birthday to me along with the Grand Piano - was amazing and the tea was delicious. Picture above.
No meat for 30 days
Who was I trying to kid.
Join the local Church
Fail! Though I have been twice this year

Buy a House
We live in our amazing house with one amazingly hefty mortgage
I am amazed a lot! But never more so than on the days my children were born
Choose a signature lip stick and perfume
Many of you will know that my signature lip colour is red and it is most definitely Mac Ruby Woo.
My signature perfume is definitely Ghost Cherish
