My little Bucket List for 2015! :)

This year, I thought that instead of doing New Years Resolutions (that I always seem to fail in the first month), I should compile a little bucket list of all the things I'd like to do in 2015. I don't know if you already know, but I actually have a full Bucket List post that I like to update all the time, so I thought it would be good to try and tick some of those off my list this year!




- Complete 5 Pinterest inspired projects.
I'm absolutely obsessed with Pinterest and have been pinning ideas on there for the past few years, but I've been way to busy at university to actually carry any of those ideas out myself. I've got everything from cooking projects, to sewing projects to beauty products and my aim is to create at least 5 of those this year.

- Dye my hair pink.
 Last year I managed to go from jet black hair to blonde, and now I'm still blonde I'd like to grow my hair out a bit and dye it pink! It's something I've always wanted to do and I should probably do it before I get too old! :)

- Read 5 books.
I know that sounds like not many, but I don't read AT ALL and I never really have. I've bought myself a few books recently and I'd like to get through them, including Gone Girl and The Fault In Our Stars. I'm gonna aim for 5 but hopefully I can read more than that!

- Find a job I love.
I've had a job and a fashion internship since graduating from university, but I need to find a job this year and hopefully it'll end up being one I love! If I could get one just like my internship at Oh My Love, I would literally be over the moon!

- Be happy with my weight again.
I'm still carrying a bit of uni weight (way too many beers and pizzas were consumed through-out my three years at uni), so 2015 is the year to get back in shape and be happy with my weight again!

- Go to the Holi Festival of Colour.
I'm obsessed with India and used their intricate garments and bright colours as inspiration for a few of my projects at university. I first heard about the real Indian Holi Festial of Colour when watching the Indian episode of Karl Pilkington's An Idiot Abroad, and ever since I've found out they do a similar day festival in the UK I've wanted to go! It's not even that expensive, I've just been busy every time it's been on, so I'd really like to go!

- Save up for a Macbook.
I have a laptop which works, but it's pretty slow and can just about handle Photoshop and the internet being open at the same time. I need to get a job and save up for a Macbook which can handle Final Cut Pro properly. I have around 20 videos which I have shot and I'm yet to edit and upload to YouTube because my laptop won't let me and Joe's always on his computer!

- Post 10 YouTube videos.
As I said above, I'd really like to edit and upload some videos this year, as well as create some new content, so my aim is so get up 10 YouTube videos, but hopefully if I do end up getting a Macbook at some point I could upload more regularly than that! :) I have so many fun ideas for my YouTube channel!

- Go to Amsterdam with Joe.
Since starting this blog post, Joe has actually surprised me with a trip to Amsterdam as my Christmas present! We have wanted to go together for the past 5 years! He's been twice before with friends but I've never been before so I'm really excited :) we're going early January so if you have any fun places for us to go, please do let me know!

- Get a new tattoo.
I only have one tattoo at the moment, and it was done by my friend when we were 17 years old. Since then, I've never really had the money spare to get anymore, and there's SO many ideas I have to get. I want to get a job in the new year to pay for things I actually want, like a Macbook and some of my dream tattoos!

- Go to Fright Night at Thorpe Park. 
This is just another simple thing I'd like to do, but me and my friends have been saying we'll do it for years! I'd be absolutely terrified, but I love Halloween and I need to go one year! 

- Sort out all of my clothes.
Since coming back from univeristy I've had quite a few charity shop journeys with bags full of clothes, but I've decided I really need to get rid of 50% of my clothes, just for space and peace of mind! I read a quote on Pinterest the other day which said 'Cut down your wardrobe by asking yourself the question "If I was shopping right this second, would I buy this?" If the answer is no, then it goes.' I also saw an interesting article on How to create the perfect capsule wardrobe which says you can have between 24 and 37 items of clothing! I may end up with a few more than that, but a wardrobe overhaul is definitely needed! :)

- Go to Download Festival.
Slipknot, Five Finger Death Punch, A Day To Remember, Marilyn Manson, Lamb of God. Just a few of the reasons I'd like to go to Download Festival this year. I went to Reading Festival this year and saw some amazing bands, but the atmosphere just wasn't my scene at all and I didn't get to see my friends most of the time as they were seeing other bands! My best friend and I stayed together the whole time so I'd love to go to Download with her and some others this year round!



Thank you for reading :)

  26. Pink hair is fun! Difficult to maintain because it fades so fast, but I find Beyond the Zone to be the best when it comes to hair dyes in alternative colors. My only new year resolution is to blog more often! :o)
