Before I'm 25

July 01, 2013

Hello ♥

Now that it is July (I know, where has this year gone?!) it is officially the month I turn twenty-four. That means that I'm one year away from being a quarter of a century, an age I think that should be properly recognised. For that reason I have decided to make a list of 50 things I want to complete in a year (and nineteen days!). 

It was really tricky to come up with so many ideas. Some of them are just "dreams" whilst others are completely achievable goals. Having said that, I have tried not to list things that are just not going to happen, like ideally I would like to go Paris in the next year but with everything else on my list I wouldn't be able to afford it!

I would like to keep monthly updates of what I have managed to achieve and I'm hoping that I can do a good number of things on my list. Do you think I can do it?

  3. I believe in you! You can do it in time for your birthday! Have you ever seen 'Some Like It Hot'? Anyways, there's a quote from there that made me think of your post. "A quarter of a century, makes a girl think..." Hope you have a great month!


    1. Thank you :) I've actually never seen Some Like It Hot. Maybe it should be on my list of watching 50 movies I've never seen before (15)!
