It only seems right to post this today, as it’s my birthday. (January 27th) That’s right, I’m now 24, and feeling older than ever. I made one of these posts last year, and thought I’d follow it up with another this year, as I find them fun to put together. Most of the things on this list are going to be simple things, and personal to me rather than a list for everyone to follow.
Also some of this list is me hoping we don’t spend the whole year in lockdown.
This is 25 Things to do Before 25
1 . Make Our House a Home
I can’t wait to get into my house and put all of our finishing touches to it and make it more homely and suited to us.
2. Continue to Lose Weight
I feel so motivated to do it, and I know that it’s doable.
3. Go To allllll of the Bottomless Brunches
They’re the best. Enough said.
4. Use My Planner
Earlier this month I bought a planner and I want this to be the year where I finally use one consistently.
5. Continue to Find My Style
Towards the end of 2020 I started to really make an effort with what I wore and discover what I do, and don’t like. This year I really want to expand on it.
6. Discover More Local Restaurants
With the pandemic local industries are struggling more than ever, and it’s always nice finding nice local restaurants.
7. See More of the UK
I can’t see myself going abroad this year, but there is so much of the UK I haven’t seen and would love to.
8. Up My Blogging Game
I’ve been really enjoying blogging and want to fully get back into it.
9. Save Money
With buying a house my savings are shot, so it’s time to build them up again.
10. Become Better at Replying to Emails
I don’t know why I’m so bad at this, I just get overwhelmed and struggle with it.
11. Read Five Books
Last year the goal was one, and as you can see, I’ve clearly pushed the boat out.
12. Experiment With New Recipes
I love cooking, and I have so many new recipes I want to try, but have never gotten around to.
13. Learn How to Make Cocktails
I never make an effort with drinks, but I’ve seen so many fun recipes out there and I really want to give them a go.
14. Hit Pan on as Much Makeup as I Can
I’m really trying to use my makeup instead of constantly buying new, and I would love to start hitting pan on more products or ideally get something used up completely.
15. Be More Proactive
Am I probably the most laidback anxious person you’ll meet. I know, it’s weird. I’m either one or the other, there’s never an in-between. I really want to start making an effort rather than letting everything happen around me.
16. Try and Keep Up With My Instagram Comments
I always read my Instagram comments, but I know I need to get better at replying.
17. Have a Massive Declutter
I have so much stuff here that I don’t want to take with me to the new house, so I can feel a massive declutter coming on.
18. Create More To-Do Lists
I always get so much more done when I create a list, and I need to get back into it.
19. Try New Foods
When I first got together with Jake as I was trying new foods all of the time and most of them became my favourites. I feel like I’ve gone back to playing it safe, where as I’d love to try more new things.
20. Get as Many Weekends Away in as Possible
I feel like the best memories come from weekends away, and I’ve really missed them, so I’d love to do more.
21. Drink More Water
I often get dehydrated headaches which are not fun, so I definitely need to start doing this one.
22. Find My Signature Scent
Don’t get me wrong I love the perfumes in my collection, but I feel like I’m yet to find the one. If that makes sense.
23. Actually Use the Streaming Services I Pay For
By this I mean Netflix. I always find myself watching something on YouTube, but at the beginning of January I put Netflix on and there is so much on there I want to watch. Even if they have taken Gossip Girl off…
24. Don’t Be Too Hard on Myself
I mentioned this in my 2021 Goals post, and I think it’s super important.
25. Enjoy It
I think if 2020 taught us anything it was to take nothing for granted and enjoy what you have.
There we have it, that is 25 Things to do Before 25.
Do you have a bucket list?
