In April 2009 I wrote a post where I outlined 30 things I want to do before I turn 30 on December 23rd 2010. Well it is almost exactly 6 months until I turn 30 and I really need to get moving or else on the 22nd December I will be madly sculling a bottle of Moet in high heels while trying to give myself a brazilian...

Most relieved day of my life ever! I'm still a crap driver though.

7. Travel to New York
Me at 30 Rock. Love, love, love New York.

8. Ride in a limousine

I don't have any pictures of the limo ride, but the picture below is of me and AJ at the Grand Canyon because we got a limo to the airport, where we got a helicopter to the Grand Canyon for AJ's 30th birthday.

12. Go to an amusement park and ride a rollercoaster
Picture below is not the actual rollercoaster, but another ride I went on at Disney, but I did go on several rollercoasters!


  1. That is quite a list! Good luck and have FUN!

  2. Great list! Have fun ticking each one off!

  3. Great list!
    Hair house warehouse has a reallly good range of salon products.
    Go there.. heaps to choose from.

    Also.. a brazillian.. anyone who says it hurts that bad.. is seriously a sook..
    I had my first one 2 weeks ago, went to a salon I knew was good but I wouldnt have to go back all the time.. and yeh.. seriously amazing.
    Anything they see for you.. they've totally seen worse before.
    Its fun and it feels amazing afterwards.

  4. That makes me a sook then, as I will never go back for another Brazilian. Worth doing once perhaps.

    Good luck with your list... maybe reorder it in terms of cost? Some items are very expensive but you could definitely work on the free/cheap ones.

    Don't think I've commented lately, but I check in on you at least once a week and your weightloss has been amazing! You look awesome xxx

  5. Ummm hellooo, I think it should have been YOU kitting yourself out at the Pleasure Chest in New York missy! ;-)

    I love this list and think you're awesome for having ticked off what you have.

    If you need company for #s 6, 16, 20, 27 and 30 please think of me!


  6. ps. I love that last pic of you and AJ. You look so unbelievably happy!

  7. I can help you out with the Brazillian and spray tan. Seriously.

    Moet to me, tasted like pure cat piss in a bottle.

    I love the class ambition, the day spa indulgence and the orgasm deal and skinny dipping.

  8. It's an ambitious list, right enough, but you're getting some great things crossed off -- most of all your driver's licence! That had to feel good!


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
