51. Make a list of 100 things that make me happy
I posted these on my blog in 10 separate posts over the past year - generally I'm a bit of a pessimist ; i always expect disappointment and assume the worst so for change i wanted to try and focus on some of the little things that make me happy. I really enjoyed posting these and they seemed to go down well too.

52. Try a completely new drink at Starbucks
I don't have a Starbucks local to me so whenever i do go i tend to stick to what i know - either a Caramel Hot Chocolate or a Gingerbread Latte but i decided i wanted to branch out and try something new and in doing so i have found a new favourite - Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, it is absolutely delicious and writing this is making me really crave one.
53. Take photos more of anything and everything - document memories!
This is still kind of an ongoing one but I've definitely started taking more photos of things - especially since i got my iphone and instagram (follow me here?), I've found that having those makes it so much easier to take photos on the go.
54. See another artist/comedian or band live
I went watching Bruno Mars back in November (post here) it was a fantastic evening and Bruno Mars was incredible to watch live. He really put on a show and i honestly couldn't recommend his shows enough.
55. Have my Nails done at a Salon
I was lucky enough to win on a voucher for a local beauty salon on a raffle so i took full advantage and got my nails done. Ive never had my nails done professionally before so it was a lovely treat and i loved how my nails looked after it.
56. 365 Challenge: Blog everyday for 1 year
If you've been following my blog for a while you'll know about this one. I decided to challenge myself to blog everyday for a year and throughout 2013 that is exactly what i did. It was a heck of a lot of work and i don't quite know how the heck i managed to do it as I'm now finding it hard to maintain a few posts a week but I'm really proud of myself for being so organised and completing it.
57. Fill a jar with good memories for 1 year, read them at the end
Like the '100 things that make me happy' list i wanted to do a memory jar so that at the end of the year id be able to look over all the great things over that had happened over the year - even really small things that might seem silly to others but any moment that made me smile as i thought it would be a really nice thing to read at the end of the year and a great way to remember all the good things rather than the bad. I loved this and I've decided to do another one for 2014
58. Change My Hair
At the beginning of this year i decided to chop off my long hair and go short. I was really glad i did it at the time as i just felt like my hair just really needed a good cut. Three months later, i am really missing my long hair but cutting it was what i wanted at the time so I'm glad i did it.
59. Watch 150 movies i’ve never seen before.
I love watching movies so i thought having a goal like this would be really fun to have, as i love finding random films and some that aren't so well known. Ive discovered some really good films through this and I've really enjoyed the many movie days i had.
60. Win a Pub Quiz
Technically, we came joint first but I'm still counting that as a win. We've been coming second for a few weeks in a row so it was really nice to finally win - well joint win. Fingers crossed we win again next time!
So that is the next 10 things off my list; i know some of these are quite minor but they are things i wanted to do nonetheless. I'm really looking forward to crossing off some more!
