25 Things I’d Like to Achieve Before I Turn 25!

Yes, it does suck being a December baby but today is the one day I get to go full-blown-Blair-Waldorf-princess-mode, so that is what I’ll be doing. So, while I’m out enjoying my Frankie and Bennies breakfast in the morning and my Cheese and Wine Party in the evening, I thought I’d leave a little blog post for you all…

I’m 24 this year (I feel so old) so I’m going to list 25 things I want to achieve or do before I turn 25. Considering I don’t have a lot to show for 2016 it’s probably going to be a bit of a tall order for just one year, but I’m feeling ambitious 😉

  1. Visit Paris with my Boyfriend (including Disneyland Paris for a day of course).
  2. Get my DA to 35 or above.
  3. Attend more blogger events and meet all my favourite bloggers.
  4. Start having regular freelance work rather than the odd bit every now and again.
  5. Pay off my 2018 Trek America trip as so far all I’ve paid is the deposit.
  6. Visit a new place in the UK, there’s so much on my doorstep that I’ve never seen before.
  7. Go to every single Slimming World weigh in that I can, even when I’ve had the worst possible week.
  8. On that note, not give up Slimming World at all.
  9. Get engaged. Okay I know I have no control over that one, but a girl can dream right?
  10. Learn how to do different hair styles, so I don’t do the same thing every day.
  11. Go on a family holiday (I think we are planning on going to Cyprus at the end of Summer).
  12. Be smarter with my money and finally start to save for a mortgage.
  13. Learn everything I possibly can about Digital Marketing and SEO so that I improve my blog and improve in my role at work.
  14. Reach 10k Twitter followers and 5k Instagram followers.
  15. Get a piece of work published somewhere that isn’t my own blog.
  16. Read 35 NEW I set this target last year and forgot to keep track, so I am actually going to do it this year.
  17. Start collecting something. I’m thinking maybe postcards from everywhere I visit.
  18. Make progress in decorating the house I’m currently renting. I’ve got loads of ideas…
  19. Visit Greece, or book a trip to Greece for 2018.
  20. Host bigger and better blogger events with the amazing Ashton Jade.
  21. Take my Boyfriend somewhere that is really nostalgic from my childhood. I’m thinking North Wales as we used to have a caravan there when I was younger.
  22. Stick to going to the gym, even if it is only once a week to begin with. Baby steps.
  23. Buy dinner for my parents and make it a surprise.
  24. Finally pass my driving test and buy myself a car.
  25. Enjoy the little things.

I probably could have written a list of around 100 things I want to do before I’m 25, so I wonder how many of these I’ll actually do?

    Happy belated birthday! (And to the other commenter on your blog post r.e. the cake; calories don’t count on your birthday, right? ;)) Good luck with all your goals for the next year! x


    My mission is simple. I want to help change the way travel looks, showing both brands and society that plus size people really do travel too. In a community where plus size travellers are made to feel unwelcome, I want to inspire and advise people like me on how they can make the most out of their own incredible travel experiences.Join me as I share my own personal experiences, my best tips and tricks and all of the challenges I face along the way. It won’t always be an easy ride, but it sure as hell will be a fun one.

    Together, we can change the way that travel looks today
