My 2017 Bucket List – How Did I Do?! || Life Lately

My 2017 Bucket List – How Did I Do?! || Life Lately

Back at the beginning of 2017, I decided to share my bucket list for the coming year online. The main reason being, in previous years I’ve written them in a notebook and either lost or filled that notebook and could not for the life of me remember what they were. That, or I’d had them on my phone and coming to the end of the year been like “not gonna happen but no one knows them, doesn’t matter”. So I thought I’d post them on my blog so that I’d feel a little more accountable. That, and I’m nosey and enjoy reading these kinds of posts.

On that note, here’s how I got on with my 2017 bucket list;

My 2017 Bucket List - How Did I Do?! || Life Lately

Almost There!

  • Complete a month-long makeup spend ban. Okay, so I only bought my foundation and a powder last month, which were running out. I’m gonna put this down as an “almost”.
  • Keep my planner up to date (and utilise it more!). For most of the year, yes. For the last month and a bit, no…
  • Make my wardrobe more “me” and donate anything I don’t wear. I’ve certainly started towards the first part, but I really need a wardrobe sort out. Maybe I can nail this over the next weekend or so?!
  • Go to Notting Hill Carnival. I didn’t get to go for a full day, but I saw part of it at Holland Park…
  • Read at least 20 books. I probably managed around ten. Better than nothing though right?
  • Put a decent amount into my savings. I mean, it depends on how you define “decent” I guess…
  • Visit Copenhagen. I’m putting this in the almost just because I booked flights but I’m going in 2018. Plus I couldn’t stand another travel one to be a complete fail!
  • Stop letting the idea of doing something on my own put a halt to something I want to do and be brave enough to go it solo. In most cases, I’ve managed this. But in terms of travelling not so much.

Maybe Next Year…

  • Go on at least five short breaks, preferably abroad. There’s no “maybe” I’m already planning getaways for 2018. (Although I didn’t get to go abroad, Mona and I did get to go to Moddershall Oaks which certainly counts. Other than that I had a few trips “Up North” and one to Glasgow, I’m not quite sure I can count those!)
  • Go to the top of Primrose Hill. I’m not sure why I didn’t manage to do this?! I’m already noting down for next time I’m near Regent’s Park…
  • Visit Kew Gardens. Much like with Primrose Hill, no idea why this slipped the net. It’s literally a 20-minute bus ride away. Oh dear!
  • Take a trip to Paris. Not so funny story with this one, I was looking to book a payday weekend and go solo. The same day I went to book there was news of a potential terror threat and my parents said they wouldn’t forgive me if I went, especially if I was alone.
  • Watch a tennis match at Wimbledon. Part of this was down to working in the Wimbledon area and now, well I’m not…
  • Go on a digital detox. Lol, next joke.
  • Complete a blog challenge such as “BlogMas”. As above, lol, nope. I barely managed to post as much as I wanted to never mind more.
  • See a play at the Globe. One that just slipped my mind (I should have paid more attention to this list huh?).
  • Brave walking over the glass floor on Tower Bridge. I kept meaning to book this with Becky but there was never availability when she was down. *sad faces*
  • Finally go to BYOC. I really do need to plan this one for 2018…

In total, I missed off a third of my list. I could be disappointed with that but with some being just visiting places in London that it slipped my mind to do – well, I’m not going to beat myself up over that!

How did you do with your 2017 bucket list?
