    Write a bucket list and chase life again


    Whenever I used to think of bucket lists I thought about the terminally ill, the people who have been given a very limited time on this earth and were desperately cramming in memories and experiences before their time was up. Perhaps it’s the realisation that time is flying by ever quicker, that I’m about to leave university and be a fully fledged adult (kind of) but either way I suddenly had this yearning to make the most of my life, and in true Sophia ‘I must write a list’ style I decided to start a bucket list.

    I found this neat little book at Kikki-K, a brand embracing Swedish design principles and producing high quality, chic and stylish stationary. What I like most about it is its simplicity, the unassuming black design livened up with metallic gold writing. Inside you will find an index, 100 pages for your activities and motivational quotes to keep you inspired along the way. Although I could have just as well managed with simply 100 numbered pages it’s quite nice to have a layout that prompts you to explain why you’ve chosen a certain goal, and then a space below to record when you did it, who you were with and how you felt.


    My bucket list so far consists largely of places I want to travel and things I want to eat when I’m there (what can I say I love my food):

    • Go to NYC and eat a bagel
    • Visit Mexico and eat a taco
    • Have ramen in Tokyo

    but it also contains your more usual culprits such as:

    • Scuba dive
    • Sky dive
    • Eat at Le Gavroche (food again)

    I’m not in any rush to fill it up, but I make sure to add to it whenever I see someone doing, or experiencing something, that sends a pang of jealousy through my body because there really is no reason to live your life feeling jealous of others. Write down your goals, work hard towards them and live the experiences you’ve dreamed of.

    What would be on your bucket list? Let me know in the comments!

      This is an awesome idea, I love this little book. I might just need to do something like this, too many plans and they are all spinning around in my head. Putting them down on a paper makes them just a bit more real maybe? haha.
      Loved this!

      What a great idea and such a cute book to keep all your memories! Every year I pick a few things I want to do/learn. So far this year it was learning how to cook well in a pressure cooker!

        I’ve never used a pressure cooker but my flatmate makes the best pizza sauce in one! xx

      I absolutely love the idea of having a journal and documenting dream destination. It’s really hard to keep up with everything in my head lol
