I’m creeping closer to 40… to be exact [at the time of writing this on a balmy Friday]
… I have 52185600 seconds,
… or 869760 minutes
… or 14496 hours
… 19 months
… or 86 weeks
… and finally 604 days left.
Basically, I have enough time to add a little bit of fun to my life.
So I thought… what are 40 things that I want to do before I turn 40?
And it’s totally doable… If I just did about two things each month… that would get me there!
My list of totally random [and not really work related] things that I want to do for my 40th bucketlist:
1// Capture Aurora Boreolis
2// Enjoy tuscan wine, in a tuscan villa, eating pasta made by a local italianmama
3// Drink starbucks in Seattle
4// Attend a business retreat in an exotic location / have a workcation somewhere interesting
5// Run my own business retreat in my home
6// Eat authentic italian gelato in italy
7// Drink a glass of dom perignon
8// Eat something I’ve never eaten before
9// Walk in the high street of New York
10// See a broadway / theatre play [in a pretty dress]
11// Attend Adobe Max Conference in October in LA!
12// Take up surfing again
13// Run 5 km with friend
14// Plant lemon tree
This lovely lisbon lemon tree was bought in Fort Beaufort [from the awesome baddaford farm stall], and is now nestled happily between my pear tree and apricot tree… with a gorgeous jasmine + plumbago bush backdrop!
15// Have an established herb garden
16// create my “restoration garden”
17// Re-upholster my couch creatively
18// Salvage and repurpose something cool
19// Buy another antique piece
Take the strengthsfinder test
My strengthsfinder test results… have you done yours yet?
21// Develop design skills further
I love how design is constantly evolving, and so am I.

35// See something in a theatre
36// Do something crazy with my hair [short / color]
37// Have another professional photoshoot
38// Learn how to create the perfect smokey eye
39// Own a pair of designer jeans
40// Random acts of kindness for strangers
Full disclosure… I found it harder to come up with these [instead of all the awesome things I want to do, create, and experience in my biz], but I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with this list!
Ok, your turn! What’s on your bucket list?
Do we have any in common???
