My Bucket List

Throughout my teenhood, I’ve made many attempts to create a bucket list. But there’s something that I never really took into consideration – what goes on my bucket list should be something I actually really want to do that I want to remember for the rest of my life – not something that sounds cool and impressive.

After reading this post by Mali-Koa Hood, I decided that now I’m so close to entering my third decade and have matured since my last attempt, that I should write a bucket list. One that I can stick to with goals I actually want to achieve. Note that this is not in any particular order of what I want to do most or first.

Feeling Wanderlust; My travel bucket list

Having spoken to friends and scrolling through Tumblr, I’ve been feeling slightly wanderlust. I have the urge to just pack a bag and go where I dream to go. The only thing stopping me is money. However, it’s definitely got me in the mood to create my list of top places I’d love to travel to and, of course, I’m going to share that list with you. This isn’t in any particular order, just some of the places I’d love to visit.

  1. Primrose Hill, London 

Having watched many of Tanya Burr’s vlogs and seeing her visit this beautiful place in London, it’s definitely somewhere I would love to visit. It looks so pretty and picturesque – just think of the photos I could take!

2. Brighton

I’ve always seen photos of Brighton and thought it was a beautiful and interesting place to visit. When reading ‘Girl Online’ by Zoe Sugg, it definitely inspired me to take a trip there. I’ve yet to do so, but have already discussed the idea with a friend of mine. Another amazing place to take photos and explore.

3. California

This has been a lifelong dream of mine. Particularly visiting the original Disneyland. Los Angeles and Hollywood are just two of the places I’d love to visit there along with the Universal Studios park. California has been a place I’ve been wanting to visit for as long as I can remember and I seriously hope one day I can visit there.

3. New York City

One of the biggest reasons I want to go to New York is for the shopping in the city. I’d love to be able to afford a shopping spree there. A Broadway show and some sight seeing is definitely a must do on my travel bucket list for visiting there, too.

4. Sydney, Australia

Besides the fact that my favourite band come from this beautiful city, I’ve been told about so many amazing places that need to be visited. I also have a friend in Australia who loves living there. Although it’s one hefty flight and huge time difference, Sydney is definitely a place I’d love to visit! Although don’t expect me to try any Vegemite…

5. Ireland

ITR-PCL-00045299

My friend, Emma, has been to Ireland and always says how much she wants to go back. It’s another photogenic place and I’ve heard Dublin Zoo is a must! I’d love to be able to get a Ferry over and stay for a weekend.

Those are just some of the places I would love to visit. I may make a second post talking about more of my dream destinations are. Where would you like to visit? Have you been to any of my ideal vacation spots?

Lights, Camera, LONDON!

Hello, you.

So, Monday was a very big day for me. I packed up my bags and headed to London. No, not permanently, but just for 24 hours or so. It was the world film premiere for the new British rom-com, Love Rosie and yours truly managed to get two tickets! How crazy is that?

The journey to London was rather a nuisance. From the bus being late, to extreme lack of hygiene on the bus toilet and then a blown tyre as we drove through Earl’s Court to Victoria, it cut our journey shorter. I’ll admit, I’m very disappointed in Megabus for the amount of problems we came across but it also came as a surprise as normally the service is pretty good.

Trundling from our broken down vehicle, we headed to Earl’s Court station to catch a tube to Leicester Square. It was at this point my excitement could hardly be contained- so many famous films had premieres here. From Harry Potter to the One Direction rockumentary and so on, it was a real thrill to think that one of my lifelong dreams of attending a world premiere was finally happening and right at the heart of movie premieres. It gave me chills.
