101 in 1001

A little while ago I saw that Jenny from Breakfast at Lilly’s was doing something called the 101 in 1001, where you set yourself 101 things to do in 1001 days, obviously I had to give it a go myself. I did a bit of googling and saw that quite a lot of people are actually doing this so I can’t wait to join in! I’ve been planning this post for a little while, I wanted to make sure that everything I put on the list was realistic so that I’ll definitely be able to get some things ticked off. I am so excited to start now!

    This is such a cool idea! I haven’t ever seen it before! I think I may have to do one for myself too 🙂
    I love that you picked some big challenges just mingled in with things that are fun and easy to do, like a facial. Good luck with the wolves!!
