52 // 30 Before 30

I turned 29 last month and much like Pheobe Buffay there are some things I want to achieve before I turn 30 next year, some just because they will be pushing me forward, some for fun and some because I feel I really should have done them by now hah. And they happen to mostly fit into the themes of the mood boards that I did at the start of this year. I’ve already made a start on some and I started a bullet journal which I’m hoping will help me keep track of getting these things achieved.



  • Visit Sabine in Munich
  • Visit New York (this might just have to be booked).
  • Girly weekend.

  • Start a retirement fund.
  • Enter awards for work.
