26 while 26.

In keeping with my annual birthday tradition, here is a list of 26 things I would like to accomplish in the next 12 months:

1. Continue to grow my hair out. I still want long hippy hair by the time B and I get married.

2. Learn how to french braid. Could come in handy for my wedding hairstyle, ha!

3. Whilst we're on the topic of hair, please don't dye your hair back dark again. It looks really good natural with the random blonde highlights. :)

4. Get a few extra hours at work, or find some other way to make some regular "pocket" money. You're going to have a wedding to save for soon I hope. ;)

5. Keep going to the gym at least 3 times a week. It doesn't matter if you don't reach your goal weight, you just need to stay active and healthy and get your PCOS under control.

6. Find your clean eating niche and learn to embrace it. Whether that be a paleo diet, vegetarian diet, vegan lifestyle, or just eating relatively healthy in general. Find what works for you and makes you feel the happiest.

7. Make sure you still treat yourself on occasion, even if it's more than once a week. You don't need to be super strict with yourself if you are active and healthy most of the time.

8. Take your blog to the next level, as well as your instagram account. Whatever that new level is will be entirely up to you.

9. Become more active in the ASMR community, and work towards giving something back.

10. Finish furnishing/decorating the house. Try to sneak in some pops of colour even if B says no. ;)

11. Either get into a habit of spring cleaning once a week, or hire a cleaner.

12. Make sure that Nala is fully toilet trained, and teach her how to sit/stay.

13. Get Nala desexed.

14. When Christmas time rolls around, make sure to really get into the Christmas spirit and decorate the house like a crazy person.

15. Host some sort of gathering at our house once we get the new couch.

16. Walk the dogs at least every 2nd day.

17. Start wearing make up regularly again.

18. Curl your hair more often. It suits you.

19. Burn candles more often. Why bother having them if you're not going to use them?

20. Don't neglect your friends back home.

21. Go to Magnetic Island.

22. Visit Cairns.

23. Go to Airlie Beach/The Whitsundays.

24. Spend a proper weekend with Anita and Jaana in Mackay.

25. Go back home to visit family and friends in Brisbane, even if B hasn't been given his annual holiday yet.

26. Write a '27 while 27' list.

Wish me luck and we'll see how I went on my birthday next year. :)

  3. My dear Felicity! You are pretty darn insightful for a young 26 year old. I had similar thoughts as you and I am now 60 and planning new adventures in my life yet again. Please remember, we are all a work in progress......it's never finished. Having studied positive psychology I would like to offer you a tip. Life satisfaction is influenced almost solely about the way you think about yourself and the things that happen to you. Life isn't always easy but it can always be better. Here's one thing I would ask you to do this year. Instead of focusing on the things that you didn't accomplish last year.....what about listing the things you did accomplish on the list, leave off those that you didn't, and add things that you did that weren't even on your list!!! You will find out that you have accomplished much more than you thought and it will help you focus on your strengths, rather than your weaknesses. I hope this all makes sense. I wish you much happiness and think your name is the perfect definition of what all humans hope to achieve. Sincerely, Cathy

    1. Hey Cathy, thank you so much for your thoughtful comment and advice. I will indeed take this on for future to-do list review posts. :)

      P.s. I'm glad you like my name. ;)


  4. Great post Felicity and happy late birthday! I hope your day went well. Also, I just wanted to ask how you designed your blog and Fleur's blog with the uber cute bio, profile picture, and social media design? Fleur sent me by the way, she said you helped her design her blog. Please respond when you can. :)

    1. I just realized after reading more about you and into your blog that you are a professional blog designer. I'm sorry if I wasted your time, but I'm not able to afford many luxuries at this time. Once again sorry.

    2. No worries hun! If you google these things I am sure you will find the answers you are looking for anyway. :)


  5. Your 26 list is fantastic, I hope you have a wonderful year and get to achieve your list.
    (I think I might pinch some of your list because it really is a great list!).


Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment! I really appreciate it. :)
