As my friends keep reminding me, as I have recently turned 25 I am now closer to 30 than I am 20! Quite frankly, this kind of scares me as time seems to have gone so fast since I was 16 and seems to go quicker each year. As such, I felt the need to make a list of things I’d like to do before I turn 30. Hopefully I can achieve quite a few of these, so even if the time goes quickly, I’ll feel like I’ve achieved a lot with it!
- Go on holiday to Cornwall (I used to go there every year, but I haven’t been for 11 years this year!)
- Go on holiday to Wales where Dave and I went for our honeymoon
- Go to France for the day
- Go to France for a holiday
- Go wine tasting
- Go to the beach and make sandcastles with Autumn
- Have a go at making cheese
- Win a blogging award
- Complete my degree with the Open University
- Possibly expand our family(!)
- Go ‘up North’ (I’ve never been further north than Norfolk!)
- Own something designer
- Master winged eyeliner
- Do 5 fundraising things for charity
- Go for a woodland walk with Autumn, stepping on crunchy leaves and collecting some of them to make a picture with
- Go to the zoo with Autumn
- Decorate the living room
- Move house
- Go off-roading
- Learn to crochet
- Have the toned tummy I’ve always wanted for once in my life!
- Take Autumn to the cinema for the first time
- Play in the snow and make a snowman with Autumn
- Teach Autumn how to ride a bike
- Teach Autumn how to write her name
- Bake cookies and fairy cakes with Autumn
- Go to Harry Potter world again
- Go to Peppa Pig World with Autumn
- Go back to Chinatown in London

Like like an awesome five years ahead! #postsfromtheheart
Great ideas, have a fantastic time achieving them! #MarvMondays
Turning 30 is so long ago for me now! The one thing I wanted to do was be married and I was – just! #postsfromtheheart
I never made a list of things to do before 30 and suddenly I only have 3 years left… feels a bit scary but yeah, maybe it’s about time I make a list as well 🙂 and getting clear skin is for sure on my list as well!
Great list, I love lists like these. Lots of things on here that would be great to tick off your list. Hopefully you’ll blog about them and share them with us when you do 🙂 Great post, thanks for sharing it on #MarvMondays. Emily
This is such a great list! I turn 30 this year and this is just such a great list to go by. You got 5 years! They go by too fast.
I hope so! 🙂 Thanks for commenting.
Thank you! I’m hoping that I manage to tick most of them off 🙂 Thanks for commenting x
Hooray! 🙂 Thanks for commenting x
My skin is such a pain! If you do make a list, tag me on twitter and I’ll read it 🙂 Thank you for commenting x
Time seems to go quicker the older I’m getting, it’s scary! I hope you manage to achieve some of your goals by your 30th birthday and thanks for commenting and sharing. I really appreciate it 🙂
Yes I certainly will! One of my goal this year is to eat healthier for the sake of my skin and I read a cookbook ‘Eat beautiful’ about how to nourish the skin from inside out. I found out that gluten, dairy and sugar is the reason my skin is not great. But I find it so hard to stay away… ?Im like a magnent to bread butter and jam kind of stuff ?
Oh, that sounds great! I went dairy free for a few months in 2015 and it did wonders for my skin! The problem is, I love cheese so much! It’s scary how much of an effect those kinds of foods have on the skin. I really must start trying harder again.
These are great things to do before 30. I really wanted to make a list myself, unfortunately, time got away from me and I will be 30 in less than a month. I am now working my way towards doing a list of things to do before 40. 🙂 x
Time does have a habit of doing that! It sounds great – as you’ll have 10 years, there’s more room for ambition! 🙂 x
Great list, it sounds like you have a fun few years coming up! I’m working my way through my 40 before 40 lists and it’s a really great way to remember that your goals don’t have to just be the important stuff – they can be the fun things too. #brilliantblogposts
Great varied list, looks like you’ll have a fun filled 5 years ahead. Lots of these I haven’t yet done and I’m 31! #coolmumsclub
I find it soon hard to be dairy free even if I love almond/oat/rice milk and I’m not particularly interested in cheese… but Im so obsessed with butter and cream that kind of stuff… ?Im so ashamed ?
Impressive list! You must have spent ages finding the right pics with the items! Some are so easy to do and you inevitably will do them…others are going to need a bit of planning and effort!
I achieved my ‘before thirty’ goal…just…I conceived my first baby on my 30th birthday 😉
Thanks for sharing with #coolmumclub
Thank you, I’m hoping I’ll tick most of them off! Thank you for commenting x
Hahaha, don’t be! Dairy products are pretty amazing 🙂
Haha, it’s brilliant that you just about got there 😉 Thank you, I’m hoping to work my way through most of them 🙂 Thanks for commenting xx
Thank you for sharing your link on #beechat your blog is great! I love lists like these. Crocheting seems like such a fun hobby. I’ve recently started knitting again and I made a massive dusty pink scarf. Its such a fun thing to do when you’re watching the tv etc (I’m usually quite restless so it keeps me busy). My mum says your skin gets clearer when you get older – I’m still waiting for that lol. You should visit Scotland – Edinburgh is really cultured & historic, the highlands are absolutely beautiful & Glasgow (where I live) has lots of things to do!
What a lovely list of things to do, I hope every single one of them comes true for you, you deserve it. These days I am much nearer to 40 than 30 but a I would still like to do lots of the things on your list. Thank you so much for linking such a well thought out list up to #PostsFromTheHeart
Great list! I loved Cornwall, especially the domes. Harry Potter would also be on my list #blogstravaganza
These look like great ideas. I have less than 6 months until 30! I had planned to be in the best shape of my life… your toned tummy reminded me… I’d better get off the sofa! Ha! #Blogstravaganza
I never set any pre-30 goals but sounds like you’ve got a list that is certainly achievable. Used to go Cornwall as a kid in my dad’s caravan and it’s beautiful so highly recommend you do that. And if you want a trip up north, Liverpool and Chester are worth visiting, particularly as you could do both during the same trip. #blogstravaganza
Fab list!! It’s a good idea setting goals because when you achieve them it gives you such a buzz! I am a list maker and ticking off something is like a little bit of happiness. Although I’m nearly 40 and I dont think I will ever master the art of winged eyeliner!! xx #Blogstravaganza
This sounds like a great bucket list! Enjoy ticking them all off 🙂 #blogstravaganza
Sorry, I’m not sure if my commented posted, but this sounds like a super bucket list! Enjoy ticking them all off 🙂 #blogstravaganza
What an amazing this, I could totally steal a few ideas for myself! I would absolutely love to visit Harry Potter World, I’ve never heard a bad report yet! Thanks so much for sharing with #Blogstravaganza, hope to see you again next week xx
Wow, that sounds lovely! I’ve tried knitting before, but haven’t been able to get the hang of it very easily but I’ve been told that crochet is easier!
I would love to visit Scotland too – if I don’t visit in the next 5 years, I’ll be adding it to my list of things to achieve before 40! The lochs look absolutely beautiful. xx
Thank you so much and thank you for your lovely comment 🙂 x
Oddly enough, even though I’ve been to Cornwall almost 10 times, I’ve never been to the Eden Project! I’ll have to go some time. Thank you for commenting 🙂
Haha, there’s still time if you can find the motivation! 🙂 I’d like to do it, but I think I like chocolate more!
Thanks for your comment x
Thank you – I’m actually going up to Manchester for a blogging convention in September, so I’ll be able to tick that one off this year! 🙂
Thanks for commenting
It does – I also love ticking off lists! 🙂 Something tells me I won’t master winged eyeliner by 30 either, but I’ll give it a good go! 🙂 Thank you for commenting xx
Thank you and thanks for commenting 🙂 xx
You’re more than welcome to steal a few of these for yourself! 🙂 My parents bought tickets for hubby and I the year before last for my birthday and it was amazing! We were there practically all day and there was so much there we could have gone again and spotted about a million different things. It was amazing, one of the best presents I’ve ever received! 🙂 I hope you get to go there some time.
