Our Journey


Can you believe this is my 300th blog post since this little blog started all those years ago? It started off with my bucketlist (hence the URL) as I wanted something to do with my life as I felt left behind (nothing has changed there). Although I have crossed a lot off my original list, this evolved into something bigger and I found a passion for writing that I didn’t really know I had.

I have been reminiscing about previous posts and I wanted to share with you some of my favourites!

My Trip To The Rodeo

So Much Kindness

My Ritz Experience

San Francisco…..

My First Liberty Shoot

I love writing about my life and sharing parts of it with you, I like to use my blog share my experiences and hopefully inspire you on your own journeys. I will be 29 soon, which means I start my 30th year on Planet Earth and what am I planning to do with it? I have no clue, but I am sure with Matt, my family and my friends by my side I know it will be another great year!

So why not hit the follow button on the side so you can join me and see what happens, in the mean time I would like to say a MASSIVE


Keep Smiling!

Milestone Birthday!

For those of you that have followed me since the beginning of my blogging journey will know that this all started because I wanted to do 30 things before I turned 30 and on my Bucket List (which is still tucked away) was to throw a massive party for my 30th Birthday! When Paperless Post, an American (don’t worry they ship to the UK!) online stationery & card company, contacted me to see if I had anything planned for my next milestone birthday, I thought this would be a great opportunity to show you my thoughts and show off their beautiful products too!

Of course my 30th Birthday would have to be a bigger and better version of what is turning out to be my annual Cocktails & Cupcakes night, I took some time to browse through Paperless Post website, its so easy to search for what you are after and when I found their Kate Spade range, I had no doubt I would find something for me! The only problem was, I couldn’t pick just one invitation card, can you help?

The venue would have to be Southend Barns, my cousin got married there last summer and it is stunning! I would have tables smothered in cakes in the main barn, with places to sit for family and friends, making sure there was ample space for a dance floor and hundreds of marshmallows available for toasting on the fires outside!

Of course the most important part of the party would be what cake we would be serving, I have found some amazing recipes on line that I just had to share with you!

Bourbon Cupcakes
Pina Colada Cupcakes

Pimms Cupcakes
Champagne Cupcakes

Now, every birthday girl needs to look her best so I have done a bit of wishful shopping and found some dresses that I love that I think would be perfect!
