Things to Achieve While I am 26


I have been 26 for almost a week and I honestly cannot believe it! Where is time going? Yes, I guess me saying that officially makes me an ‘old’ person! But seriously?! Anyhoo, while I am 26 there are some things that I would love to achieve and I figure sharing them with all of you will keep me motivated! So here it goes; all of the things that I would like to achieve before my next birthday.

Be healthier

I’m not saying that no junk food will pass my lips but I would certainly like to eat better and exercise more. Both of which I am already doing but I would definitely like to keep it up and even improve.

Be Social

I get really anxious in social situations and I really don’t feel comfortable around new people so I am going to try and change that. I mean I am not going to try and be a social butterfly but a few small steps here and there will make a huge difference.

Change it Up

I want to try and be more adventurous with my makeup. I have such beautiful makeup and yet I always stick to the same thing. I need to stop worrying about others and just go for it. I can honestly create so many more looks! I also need to start putting more effort into doing my hair.


I need to start cooking more and also planning my breakfast and lunch meals a bit more. I received Niomi Smart’s recipe book, Eat Smart, for my birthday and there are LOADS of things in there that I would love to try so I cannot wait to get started on that. I just need to find a free moment!


I would definitely like to do some travelling. Now, I do have plans for this but I would like to go above and beyond those plans as well! I cannot just stay in one place – I need to do things and see things, and meet people!

So there are just some things that I would like to achieve in the next year. Have you done any posts like this? What things would you like to achieve? Let me know in the comments below!

    This is a fab list of things to achieve and definitely doable! I keep meaning to take a look at Eat Smart, so thanks for the little reminder. I’d also like to get on top of my cooking game, so I’d love to do some research into healthier and more nutritious recipes.

      Thank you! I am definitely going to be making loads of food from the book and talking about them on here 🙂
