26 Things I Want To Do Before I’m 26

Last month I turned 25 and it really made me realise how quick time flies by (when you’re having fun and all that jazz!), it feels like I left school yesterday but in reality it was 8 years ago which is so daunting. It’s made me realise now more than ever, how important it is to live out your dreams, because if you don’t, who will? We’re forever putting stuff off until tomorrow, next week, next year then before you know it years have flown by and you didn’t do what exactly it was you wanted to.

I’ve decided to set myself 26 goals that I’d love to achieve before I hit 26, some are personal goals and some are physical achievements, some smaller and others more of a challenge, it’s nice to set ourselves goals and see how much we’re capable of achieving! If I don’t hit all my goals it’s no biggie but here’s what I’m aiming for…

1.) Die my hair a fun colour

2.) Stop caring what people think (starting to get quite good at this one, but as you get older you realise that sometimes other peoples opinions don’t matter as much as you once thought they did).

3.) To get a new tattoo (Soz Dad!)

4.) See the northern lights

5.) To go on at least 3 solo trips

6.) Appear in a magazine (an absolute dream of mine!)

7.) To be really happy with my body and be at my physical peek (hello personal trainer *weeps inside!)

8.) Spend more time exploring London (I spend so much time running around that city like a headless chicken but hardly ever stop to appreciate the sights)

9.) Visit Canada – so desperate to get to that country!

10.) To start painting and being creative more (the one thing I really miss since leaving university!)

11.) Go to a festival abroad (thinking Coachella/Outlook?!)

12.) To spend my money more wisely on my wardrobe and invest in statement pieces

13.) Improve my time keeping skills – because I’m always late and it’s not okay #SozBoutIt

14.) To hit 50K on Instagram (eeep, that might be a tad ambitious but I’m gunning for it!)

15.) Spend more time with my friends and family, after all that’s all that really matters in life – making  memories that will last a lifetime

16.) Focus on myself more

17.) Return to New York

18.) To own a YSL/ Givenchy/ Chloe/ Gucci bag (all the bag #GOALS)

19.) Invest more time and knowledge into my diet and eat cleaner

20.) To become a kick ass #GIRLBOSS

21.) Do either Paris or New York fashion week

22.) Attend a film premiere (and wear a super fancy dress on the red carpet, yes please!)

23.) To do something out of my comfort zone (I want to leave this one open, so I’m not signing up to a bungee jump before I can take it back, ha!)

24.) Get my freelance work going and to have worked with at least 3 clients

25.) To be more organised and manage my time better, this way I’ll get way more done!

26.) To make 25, my year! I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a good one!

I’m going to print this list off and stick it on my wall so I can remind myself of my goals everyday and what it is exactly that I’m striving for!

What are your goals for this year? Are any of yours the same as mine?

    Such a good idea to make goals like this! It's so crazy, school seems like just a minute ago for me too but it was seven years wahh. I'm making a goal to use more of my weekends and time off next year to explore new places!

    I think you live inside my brain! That list is EXACTLY what I want to accomplish (before I'm 30 because 'hello broke student!'). Ha. That being said, I might be accomplishing #3 sometime in the next couple of months 😉
