I've completed another 10 things on my 101 things in a 1,001 days (see my list here, if your interested) I'm actually quite proud of myself because I've completed 50 out of the 101 things - i still have just over a year left to complete the rest so I'm very intrigued to see whether i will complete them all but id honestly be very happy if i managed to do around at least 75 of them!
So which ones have i crossed of the list lately?

41. Change my make-up storage
I was getting extremely sick of my make-up storage so after a while i settled on the Helmer Drawers from Ikea to house my collection and i was so happy to finally have it sort it all out. Ill be honest and say I'm as crazy about it anymore and I'm kind of wanting to change it again but for the time being it's a great solution to storing my ridiculous amount of make-up.

42. Buy presents for people for no reason at all minimum of 5 people
I included this into my list because i wanted to do something selfless, it's been a while since i completed this so i don't actually remember what i bought and for who but it was just little things, that i might have seen and got for someone.

43. Go a Zumba Class
Ever since Zumba got popular id always wanted to go to a class and see what it was like - I've not been back in ages but it was such fun and definitely a great way to incorporate exercises into your life.

44. Graduate University
I still find this one hard to believe, but i finished, passed and graduated university. As much as i wish id realised earlier that uni wasn't the option for me I'm still really proud of myself for sticking at it and graduating.

45. Get a Job
Well, self explanatory - i graduated uni and until i have a plan on what to do next i need a job. Thankfully after tearing my hair out for what felt like months, luck finally showed it's face and i got a job.

46. Complete a Project 10 Pan
I did end up changing two of the products from the original list but i still used up 10 make-up product which to me counts.

47. Complete 5k on a Cross Trainer
This was done on a sit down cross trainer, not the one where you stand up so i don't know if that also counts as cheating but i still did 5k on it, so to me it counts.

48. Watch a play at a local theatre
My lovely friend was in a show on a theatre local to me so i went to show my support and watch the show. I love going to the theatre, it's such a great atmosphere and even if the show isn't something id usually like i usually enjoy it anyways because i just love the theatre.

49. Stay overnight in a fancy hotel
My cousin's wedding was at a very fancy hotel and we spend the night there, it was such a beautiful hotel and very very fancy. I was referred to as mam and madam on different occasions, definitely different to the usual premier inn type places id stay!

50. Reach 500 Followers on Blogger
This is one of those milestones that I've been wanting to reach for so long and I've finally reached. I'm so grateful for each and every follower and to have reached 500 really makes me happy and makes me so proud of my blog that 500 people like it enough.

So that is the recent 10 items off my list that I've completed.
Are you doing 101 things in a 1,001 days or any challenges that are similar?

  1. Well done Natalie! Looks like an interesting project I might try it :) I also can't believe I managed to graduate and get a job haha. My cousin's wedding in Jan is at a castle - I'm so tempted to take a room there instead of one of the local cheapies ;)

    1. Aw thanks! Go for it, you should spoil yourself :)
