30 Before 30; One Year To Go

So last week I turned 29, and had a wonderful birthday full of glitter, celebrations and chocolate (it was also Easter Sunday so I had double the excuse!). However since then I’ve been thinking about the fact that I’ll be turning 30 next year – EEK. That seems crazy to me. I mean, 30 is grown up, right?! I definitely don’t feel grown up at all. I honestly still almost say ’19’ when people ask me my age, and I do a little sob when I realise I’m way off.

But anyway, I plan on making this year AMAZING. I’m really determined, I’m giving myself a kick up the ass! There are so many things I want to do in this next year, before I turn 30; and I thought I’d share that list with you guys today 🙂

This is my 30 before 30 list, I have one year to complete it, it ranges from ‘big’ things to ‘small’ things, and these are in no particular order. WISH ME LUCK!
