22 things before I'm 22.

This would have been more timely posted around my 21st birthday. However, I have only recently had the idea / realisation I am old. This list is inspired by many an outside influence and is in no particular order but some are definitely more realistic ambitious than others. I have six little months, I shall be keeping you posted.

1. Pass my driving test

2. Design business cards

3. Spend the day in Somerset House

4. Have a champagne picnic

5. Take up the piano again

6. Go to London Fashion Week

7. Customise a whole outfit

8. Overhaul are you dressing up or dressing down?

9. Have a five star spa weekend

10. Have cocktails with my two sisters

11. Go ice skating at Somerset House

12. Spend the day on Portobello road

13. Host a dinner party

14. Buy a film camera

15. Have the best portfolio going

16. Take an impulsive trip abroad

17. Bite the bullet and do a vlog

18. Actually go to the Angel of The North

19. Go on a Camden pub crawl

20. See Rihanna, Foals and Slow Club

21. Have a sweet summer

22. Decide on an actual life plan

Feel free to share your suggestions.

  2. Aww this is such a refreshing lovely idea and I always find putting things down in writing makes them so much more affirming and practical. I hope you manage to cross them all off :) So with you on this 'actual life plan!' x

    visiting Thailand is probably the biggest thing on there, are you already planning on going? It would be amazing xx

  7. Is it wrong that I now associate visiting Thailand with The Hangover 2?! Oh dear... :P I'm sure a majority of that list can be achieved in 6 months, I particularly hope you get to go to LFW and an iPad would definitely be a snazzy piece of technology to own :) I'm wondering if I should do a list like this before my 18th xxx

  11. I definitely need to make a list like that. Getting a film camera is a GREAT idea, I've been using my dad's old one for more than a year now, and I love it! Every picture is such a surprise!
