I created this list about March last year after seeing it on another blog. The idea of having things you want to aim to complete before your next birthday seemed kind of cute. I admittedly haven't done everything on my list, and won't deny that some things I didn't even bother trying.
Giving Blood is still something I want to do, but after getting my tattoos I wasn't allowed. I also still want to visit the zoo, and I've got two gigs already planned for this year.
Some things like figure skating and visiting all my friends at university never happened since things took a different path last year to what I expected and I finally flew the nest.
So heres what fun I did have this year...
Do a skydive - and survive! Me and Abi did a skydive in April to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. I can honestly say I have never felt more alive that I did that day. Free falling at 120mph and just seeing fields coming towards you is breathtaking.
Since starting my degree, I have had to do more photo shoots anyway, but it has made me a lot more confident. I loved this shoot with Abi in May and this is one thing that has definitely been instilled in me now.
So the idea this year was to get one tattoo. I got my anchor in April, on the anniversary of Titanic's sinking. This is secretly for my Gramp's because he is my favourite man in the whole world, but I don't tell him that, because he'd tell me off. 'Wanderlust' I got on my last day in LA in a little tattoo studio on Melrose Avenue. It's my promise to myself to travel somewhere new every year. This year I'm staying a little closer to home and going to the beautiful Amsterdam.
My trip to LA was by far the highlight of my year. I have the debate with my brother a lot that I don't want to go on holiday to lie by a pool. I want to see the world, I saw the Hollywood sign, the Walk of Fame and I'm so grateful that I went.
My plan to go shopping in London, started out with a little trip to London Fashion Weekend, followed by months yearning to go back. I went back with my Mum and sisters since I promised myself I'd visit the Olympic clock. I went from being a girl who had never been to the capital to a girl who knows thats where I'll be living one day.
