So this is me. Nearly 26 years old and I think I am having a quarter century mini midlife crisis.
I have wanted to do this kind of post for a while and I didn’t know if it was really something that would fit my blog. However, recently I have been taking a bit of a step back from my blog to analyse and appreciate it. I have been thinking about doing more lifestyle posts and more about me ( of which you probably have seen over the past few weeks).
I thought I would write this list because If something is on a list you’re more inclined to actually do it. Life is certainly passing me by right now- it’s going so so quick and I feel there is so much more I could be doing! There is 4 years and 2 months until my 30th birthday, so ironically that is 50 months! 1 a month every month.
So here are my 50 before 30;
