 My first post!
So I’ve not only have I been inspired to do this challenge but it has also gotten me to start my blog finally!
This is something I’m sure a lot of people do but in particular Avril (Blushful Beauty), and Aoife (Fashion Turn to the Right) have inspired me to actually track the things I want to do. I find if there’s a deadline, no matter how far away it always helps to get things done!

I may add to this list but for now I’m happy. This has really made me think of all the things I have done, want to do and want to do again. If you have done one of these, please leave a comment. Would love to read it.

Do you have a “bucket list” or things you want to do? Or have you completed some of your life goals? Would love to hear from you.
