40 Before 40 Bucket List

Happy New Year you amazing lot.
This is my very first post of 2016. I’m been a busy Bee sorting out my life and rebranding which has been fun but tiring at the same time … and I’ve not even finished yet. Organising my life has been a mega deal for me recently and its helped so much – Can I add I now own 3 planners, one I actually made myself.
Last year was such an awesome year for myself and my family including personal and work, I’m really looking forward to seeing what this year brings us.


What I’m looking forward to in 2016
Turning 30, Yep I’m going to be 30 this year.
– Hayden is turning 4
Becoming a student again
– Traveling

I wrote a list a while ago about all the things I want to do before I was 40 I think it’s about time to put it in action. Realistically I don’t know if I will be able to get everything on my list completed but I’ve given myself 10 years to give it a good old try. I’ve tried to add a whole list of things that I’ve always wanted to do and I’d be so chuffed if I managed to get at least 10 of them completed. I’ll tick all the ones I complete when I complete them – Wish me luck!

  1. Great post. Turning 29 in a couple of days so I can relate kind of. I will be writing a similar post soon. Good luck with these.

  2. What an amazing list, I hope you get to complete them all. We swam with dolphins in Mexico and it is one of the most surreal experiences, definitely a must x

  3. Some great things to tick off your bucket list – I hope you get a big chunk achieved this year 🙂

  4. I’d love to see what you come up with for “Be in 2 places at once”. A list of some very adventurous things, I hope you manage to achieve them all 🙂

  5. I just turned 31 last Friday, and think I might make one of these lists myself.

  6. OOh I want to win blog awards too! I would like to try skydiving it must be such a thrill to dive over the ocean and scenery.

  7. I may just use your list and tick them off for myself too.. well I might take off the sky diving part… and I’m not sure the top 250 IMDB films would be trashy enough for me either lol x

  8. This is amazing! I am adopting this list!

    xx, Elise

  9. Brilliantly list, I hope you get to do all that’s on your list .

  10. Happy New Year to you too! That is great list. I have one I wrote when I was 15 that I still have and check things off. Swimming with dolphins is on my list too 🙂 x

  11. Fantastic! Oh to be turning 30 again! I’m going to be 40 at the end of this year and last April I wrote a 40 before 40 list of my own. I’m crossing them off one by one (one of them was drink coffee in Paris, and I just happened to climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower where I had my best coffee in Paris!). Best of luck crossing off your list – you’ve plenty of time to do it in! Me – I have 11 months….

  12. No way are you going to be 30 this year?? I’m sure you’ll do amazingly!

  13. What an amazing list maybe I should be making my own given I only have 4 years before the big 40

  14. I have a before 40 list too and we have a lot of the same ones :O)
    I will say though, please be careful with the swimming with dolphins one. I am sure you will be, bit most of the places people do it in hotel resorts and it is so incredibly cruel.

  15. I have a before 40 list too and we have a lot of the same ones :O)

  16. That is a brilliant list and if you get to do half of them it would be an amazing achievement x

  17. That’s a great list! I would love to experience Disney World too! I know my children would love it and I would probably love it even more. 🙂 x

  18. Good luck with your bucket list! I’m 29 this year and have started my 30 before 30 list, with my aim to do the last one the day before my 30th.
