Things I Want To Do..

Travel More
Ever since I went on a trip around Europe last July, I've had the travel bug. I've got a list longer than my arm of places I'm dying to see, and I really want to get round to ticking some of them off.
Worry Less
I think I've always been a worrier, and as much as I try to prevent it doing so, it does sometimes hold me back. As I'm getting older I've been realising how some things just aren't worth the stress, and that in time things do work themselves out. This one is definitely a work in progress for me, and one that I will continue to work on!
Read More Books
When I was younger I always loved reading books (especially Jacqueline Wilson!) and at some point I guess I just stopped. Lately I've been making a conscious effort to take some time out to read and I've really been enjoying it! It's like escaping to another world, distracting from life and giving your brain a rest. I've been trying to read before bed instead of staring endlessly at my phone for much longer than I should as I've found I always sleep better that way.

Live A Healthier Lifestyle
I know this is a cliché one, but it's really something I'm trying to do better at. Chips, chocolate and I have a relationship that I just can't break! I know for me, cutting everything out would be impossible because I am a total foodie, so I think moderation is the way forward. I've been trying to eat healthier in the week and relax more at the weekends, but lets be honest if I am really craving something I'm not going to deprive myself of it - life's too short to not eat good food! I also want to drink more water because I'm sure you all know how good water is for your skin, and I kinda need those benefits right now!

Go To More Concerts
I love going to see music live, it's one of my favourite things in the world! I really want to seize even more opportunities to see more bands perform.
Print More Photos
These days, most of the photos I take are on my phone or on my laptop, and that's fine, but it doesn't have the same feeling as flicking through a photo album or actually holding the photo in your hands (sorry iPhone, I do still love you!) I've been getting loads of photos printed lately and have been putting them into albums and it's so nice to reminisce over the memories as you sort them out. I really want to get myself a polaroid camera at some point too, nothing seems cooler than being able to take a photo then have it printed in your hands instantly and watch it develop!
Find New Places To Eat Out
My boyfriend and I are the sorts of people who find some really nice places we love to eat at and then go to them all the time without really branching out. Now I love going to these places, Nandos' will forever hold a special place in my heart, but I would love to try some new things every once in a while.

Redecorate My Room
I really want to redecorate my room and make it a brighter space to be in. My room is currently purple, but I'd love to paint it white/magnolia to bring a lot more light into the room. This might be an excuse to buy some new home bits and bobs too (not that I ever really need one!)


  1. A wishlist after my own heart 😍. First post of yours I read, but it seems like we have similar interests and your blog is so pretty!

  2. I found myself agreeing to all these points! Except for read more, I think I already spend too much time with my nose stuck in a book! Travelling and seeing more live music are at the top of my list of things I want to do, and I definitely need to learn to worry less.
    I really loved this post!

    1. Thank you so much :) I'm glad you enjoyed XX

  3. I love printing off photos, but I haven't done it in a while either... looking through iPhoto just isn't the same!

  4. THIS IS MY WISH LIST!! I really want to do all of the things on there. I hate hate digital pictures, they either get deleted by time or I just don't appreciate them as much as printed ones. I would LOVE to print out pictures or buy a polaroid camera :)♥

    Great post!

  5. This wishlist is everything! I really connect with wanting to travel more, I have the wanderlust bug baad! I also cannot wait to redo my bedroom when I move! I hope you get to do everything on your list <3
