The Bucket List

My time has come to turn 25 *sob* and with depressing birthday celebrations approaching, it got me thinking about what I really want in life.

I have always had a “Bucket List” of things I generally wanted to achieve/do, or places I wanted to visit, and as depressed as I am with my life sometimes, upon reflection I ain’t done so bad.

The first half of my bucket list, and the things I have successfully achieved, are:

  • Get a degree in Journalism
  • Stand on top of the Empire State Building
  • See the Sistine Chapel for myself
  • Buy a bottle of Chanel in Paris
  • Learn to drive
  • Work for a magazine
  • Party on the White Isle (Ibiza to me and you…)
  • Learn to swim
  • Start a blog that has actual readers :-p

Not too bad really, but here are the things I want to do next, and they’re not completely out of reach:

Own a classic designer pair of shoes, aka Christian Louboutin

…which will be the perfect stepping stone to start my very own magazine

Once that has become uber successful, I want to travel the world and see the Northern Lights

and live in paradise for a much needed break…

I will then return to the UK and own this bad boy, which happens to feature in my all time favourite movies…

Then somehow, magically, I will meet, interview, and marry James Bourne. And as you can see in this picture, that there stood next to my future husband is co-editor of this blog, Ms Keeling. Who interviewed him, and stood so close they were touching in this pic. AND I WASN’T EVEN INVITED. Not that I’m bothered, but you know, he doesn’t even know I exist. And there she is. Look at her, right next to him and everything. #BadFriend

There is my ideal life, in pictures. Some of it is do-able, the best bits, probably not so much, but a girl can dream… right?

*EDITOR’S NOTE: I was actually enjoying writing this, until I got to the last point, and now I’m quite depressed. I should also take this opportunity to apologise to my darling boyfriend, soz babe, but we both know you’d pick Mila over me.*

*CO-EDITOR’S NOTE: Sorry Carla, in my defence I did mention you to him before┬ábeing completely overwhelmed at standing next to my future husband, Danny.*
