30 Things to do Before I Turn 30

So if you have been reading my blog recently you would see that I am currently having an issue of what to do with my life next. In order to try and bring some order to my life and what I want to achieve I have made a list of 30 things to do before I turn 30.

I really enjoyed creating this list! It puts some things in to perspective for you and not only lets you see where you want to be but also what you have already done!

So below is my 30 before 30 list (with some little side notes for myself… encouragement if you will!!).

  1. Swim with Sharks
  2. Party in Ibiza (this year?!)
  3. See the Northern Lights
  4. Drink in a fancy Vineyard with good cheese and bread
  5. Go (full) skinny dipping 
  6. Visit 30 different countries
  7. Bungee Jump/Sky dive
  8. Get your motorbike licence (or have a couple shots on one!) 
  9. Learn to shoot a gun (and well!) 
  10. Climb a mountain
  11. Travel somewhere all by yourself 
  12. Camp somewhere beautiful 
  13. Splurge on an item you can’t afford but will last for years (Rolex, Louboutin…) 
  14. Take a cross-country road trip/big road trip
  15. Take surf board lessons 
  16. Attempt to learn an instrument 
  17. Throw a fundraiser/volunteer for a charity close to your heart 
  18. Live abroad 
  19. Learn how to ski/snowboard!! (or at least take a couple of lessons!)
  20. Spend New Years eve somewhere amazing (The Caribbean, Disneyland Paris….)
  21. Learn about your family history 
  22. Take as many “How To” “Beginner” classes as possible
  23. Get (more) tattoos 
  24. Read more Classic Books/History books  
  25. See you favourite singer/band 
  26. Be part of a TV audience 
  27. See a Broadway/Westend show
  28. Learn to fish 
  29. Learn (the very basics) of a Language 
  30. Do some form of run/challenge/marathon 

30.1…. You should probably do something that is more “Adult Life” too! Buy a house, find someone to settle down with… Get a pet!!!

So thats my list! Everything in bold is what I have done already but feel like are important and that I should continue doing or trying! Im currently 23 so have 7 years to get this down!!

Does anyone else have a list? I would love to read yours or see if we have anything similar! 


Travelling update!

Hello all!

I’ve officially been travelling for 2 weeks – how did that happen! 2 weeks to go!

So far we have seen Dubai, Bangkok and are in Koh Samui now. We leave for Sydney on Saturday and then go to LA and end in Las Vegas! 

So far this trip has been incredible, we have seen so much and been able to finally celebrate that we both got our degrees! 

I plan to post about my trip when I get home as I quickly realised when I got to Dubai I didn’t want to be on my phone typing up my experiences and not living them! However, and I’ll show it properly when I get back, I’ve been writing in a little diary small entries about each day so I won’t be forgetting anything and I’ve loved doing that! 

So for now, I leave you with a travelling cliche quote! True and cheesy – I adore that! Enjoy the rest of your summer guys! 


That’s us all ready to go! We are off on our mini world trip! 🙊 I am so excited to see some of the world! I don’t know how much I’ll upload when I’m away, depending on wifi I might just post when I get home but we will see! Speak to you all (maybe!) in a month 😁

Suprise day out 

It takes a lot to surprise me. Usually I suss it out and put on a big smile so no one thinks I knew about it! This summer, I have been surprised twice! Once at my surprise graduation party and secondly, yesterday.

 I was with my friend in the morning organising the last of our trip (6 days to go!) when my boyfriend said he was taking me out for a late lunch and he couldn’t tell me where we were going. He said it had something to do with one of his friends and that was my only clue. Immediately my mind went to work. At first I thought he was going to take me to his work to the cafe there. I wasn’t keen, their nachos are amazing but he would of been thinking about wakeboarding the entire time. Perfect date! Then I thought maybe he knew someone that worked on one of the food vans that are up in our area right now for the Edinburgh festival and we were going to the beach for some chips. This had me gleaming! Beach and chips?! This is my idea of a good date!

So he picked me up and we drove the back roads so I knew we weren’t going to his work. Phew! Then we drove past my little pretty beach with all the food trucks and I got confused. No beach and chips?

We drove for about another 10 minutes, me enjoying the views, when he indicated left. I came out my day dream to realise he was turning into Archerfield. I was in complete shock! If you don’t know, Archerfield has a golf course that’s in the top 100 in the world, has a luxury spa and cottages and overall has the reputation of being lavish and upper market… I was in a pair of jeans and jumper so I freaked out!! I knew we weren’t going to get into the golf club like this, not to mention there is a huge tournament on over the past week also. 

However, instead of following the road down to the club house, he made another left. We went down a lovely little road to a stone carpark. I seen more people in jeans and instantly relaxed but also felt confused. I’d never been down this bit before and didn’t know what was going on.

To my absolutely, delighted surprised there is something called the Archerfield Walled Garden with amazing walks around it, pollytunnels, green patches, a brewery, a shop & deli and the perfect pretty little cafe! I think I may of squealed out loud! I was completely shocked.How was I completely oblivious and missed this all?! 

We went in for lunch were we both had burgers and shared a meringue with fresh cream and strawberries. Incredible. So, so good! We almost cleaned the plates but we had eyes bigger than our bellies syndrome! We nearly ordered a meringue each as well, thank goodness we shared – they are massive!! The atmosphere of the Walled Gardens cafe was really comfortable and warm, the staff were so lovely to us and everyone around us. The building its self is gorgeous. It’s beautifully lit up and has lots of local pieces of art work. It’s a place you could come for afternoon tea with your grandparents, bring your friends for a catch up, have your kiddies with you or come on a little romantic date (my favourite personally). Working in the hospititaly industry basically forever (don’t forget, I’m only 22!) ive seen how hard it can be do offer an establishment that covers all this. They have really done it so well.

Afterwards, we went for a walk around the trail the Willow walk which has numerous  trees being shaped into fantastic structures! Such as the Willow Kirk, the Willow Den and the Willow spiral! I honestly can’t say who was enjoying themselves more, the adults on the trail or the children! 

We ended up detouring from the trail to get closer to the golf course to have a peak. After deciding that it was time to get back to the trail, whilst we were walking back up and discussing phone traffifs (I know, exciting!) when all I could do was say “Nick Nick Nick!!”. Turning around he sees me jumping up and down and pointing. To two deers! A male and female looking directly at us! I was so excited at how close we were to them I almost cried! 

Getting back to the trail after our fantastic deer experience we made our way to the wishing tree. This is one of my favourite parts of the trail. It’s a tree with lots of ribbons tied to it, each one representing a wish from someone who has been there. It’s such a beautiful concept whilst also being beautiful to look at – I completely love it. We tied our ribbons and made our wish. 

Heading back up to the cafe building we went and explore the The Walden Garden. It grows everything. Pea, rubarbs, kale, tomatoes, cabbages… Everything! They also have the cutest scarecrow I’ve ever seen. It’s so peaceful and lovely. You also get all the amazing smells from all the different plants growing!

So overall, this was in my top 3 of best date days out ever. I was compelelty surprised, got fed extremely well, got to go exploring in the lands, smell all the beautiful plants and I got to make a wish. If you are ever in Scotland and this area I 100% recommend going to the Archerfield Walden Garden. Perfect day out. I can’t wait to get back and see more of it! 

I’ve posted some of my pictures from the day below, so hopefully you can see how good the day really was! 

Has anyone else ever been before? Did you enjoy it as much as I did?! 😊

Work work work


This is 100% me! However, this is my last weekend working before I take off on my travels on Thursday! Eeek! 

Local Beauties 18 

These photos are from the start of summer when my sister and I climbed Traprain Law. I’ve lived all my life only about a 10/15 minute drive away from this huge hill and had never walked up it!! 

If I knew it had wild ponies at the top I would of been there every day! We picked such a good, sunny day to walk it for the first time. Saying that, I went back a few days later with my friend in the rain and the view was still lovely! 

The ponies are there to imrpove the quality of the land by gracing all year round. You can find the full story and power of the pony!! In this link here to our local newspaper. I love that they are not only lovely and add to the beauty of Traprain Law but actually help the land also!

Traprain Law, East Lothain – Scotland.

Does anyone else know of hills or mountains that have ponies on them for the land? Or any other any other animals? I love the entire concept! 

Puppies in the Garden

How cute are my puppies?! 😍❤️ some fun in the garden with Bonnie and Clyde yesterday in the sun! 

I haven’t shared some photos of them in a while so I thought I would because the are just the cutest!! 

Bonnies our girl and the cream one and Clydes our boy, the black one. It’s so hard getting a good photo of him as he just all blends unless he has that pink tongue out! 

Fantasy Land

Who’s to say that our world isn’t the right world?! Goodnight 😘🦄🦄

Going to bed with a smile on my face

It’s under 10 days until I go on my mini trip. I’ve worked my butt off and done it all on my own. I’ve gotten through uni with good grades and my life is filled with good things going on, not just for me but for my family and friends.Feeling completely  peaceful 💜

To anyone who isn’t there yet, you are strong 💕
