Life Edit: 30 Before 30 Bucketlist

Life Edit: 30 Before 30 Bucketlist, cover 15 things I want to do in my life (apart from travel) before I reach 30. Travel Edit: 30 before 30 bucketlist  lists the 15 places I want to visit before I reach 30 (God willing). When I entered my 20’s I did not really know what to expect, I guess I have always had to be an adult. I am the eldest of 3 and I always wanted to be a good example to my siblings so being in my 20’s never really phased me. I have gone through stages where people ask me for my ID and I get pissed off. Like do you know hpw long it took to reach 20’s (inserting laughing)? Other times I felt flattered that people still asking me for my ID thinking I was underage.
Now that I am nearing my 30’s I am actually pretty scared if I am honest. I know not everything goes to plan in this life and we certainly have to go with the flow and accept that or do something about it. But I had always thought by the time the 30’s come I would be a mummy, married and either be stay at home mum or working my ass off. I am not doing either except for working my behind off I do not feel that accomplished. Patience is not my strongest suit but I am practising it to the T. In the meantime I have a Bucketlist of things I want to get done before I am thirty in about 2 years time.

Life Edit: 30 Before 30 Bucketlist

  • Buy or start renting my own place
  • Attend a concert (either O2 arena or Wembley)
  • Watch a musical or attend a theatre
  • Face one of my fears – there are many maybe heights to start with..
  • Take a cooking or baking class
  • Learn how to drive (manual or automatic)
  • Buy a car
  • Go to Disney Paris
  • Take boo to Zambia/Malawi
  • Visit the Victoria Falls
  • Visit the States
  • Run a race for life
  • Do a 30 days challenge and complete it
  • Visit a winery
  • Go hiking or camping

These are some of the things I want to do before I turn 30, I am sure more will come to mind as the days go by.

Have you ever written a bucketlist before? Have you completed one before?



  • 30 before 30 is a GREAT idea! Do you mind me asking… how old are you?
    I’m going to be 28 this year and I completely feel you. Don’t get down about not being married a stay-at-home Mama at this point. See, I am the SAHM and I still itch for the work life, the fantastic income that I gave up and the social aspects of employment…the grass is always greener on the other side, you know? Don’t get me wrong, I love my babies and I love being home but the freedom aspects of your day are something that I long for once in a while too.
    I’ve got so many things like this on my bucket list too. I would love to do a 30 before 30 list sometime and, if I ever do, I’ll be sure to link yours as my inspiration! <3
    I've gotta start setting my priorities- thanks for the push!

    • I am 27 will be 28 this year and you’re so right grass is always greener on the other side. I appreciate your comment and has come at the right time. Thanks

    • I am 27 going 28 in 3 months and thank you. I think sometimes I get so carried away and forget to be happy with what I have already.

  • Sarah @ Must Have Mom

    I love your list. I think everyone should have a bucket list. Gotta enjoy the time you have.

  • Penny @ pennyspassion.blogspot

    What a fun list! Good luck getting this things accomplished.

    • Thanks Penny, I can’t wait to start accomplishing them

  • Analyn Benavente

    Love your list! I’m planning to do my own list too! I want to attend a concert one day! I’ve never been into a concert before, hoping I would before 30!

    • Thanks Analyn I hope you and I both attend a concert before we hit 30

  • mail4rosey

    There are safe ways to confront your fear of heights that are fun too. 🙂 I like your list. I love that Disney Paris is on it!

    • Thanks, I am thinking of safer options of conquering my fears

  • strangedaze

    That’s a great list. I am in the States but I would also love to go to Wembley Stadium! I admire your goals.

    • Thank you so much, I would love to visit the states one day


    Nice bucket list! I am already past 30 but I would like to try posting something like this. Probably 40 things to do before 40? Sounds good? ^_^

    • Sounds good to me and I think you should do it. Thanks x

  • CourtneyLynne Storms

    Ahhhh what a fantastic bucket list!!! Before I turned 30 I lived a very crazy life that I went way over my bucket list!! Now I’m all about trying to make a family bucket list! A list of things I need to do with my princess before she’s 18 😉

    • awww I am sure you will make a great list for you and princess.

  • Eeek I’m turning 25 this year and I feel old… I’m not even thinking about 30 yet but it’s great to have a bucketlist, I think I might just write one too.

    • hahaha how I miss my 25th birthday feels like yesterday lol. HBD in advance

  • chubskulit

    You are not alone with the fear of heights, speed and height are not my cup of tea. I am sure you will achieve these 30 things, just need to work on it.

  • These are definitely achievable if you keep at it! I think it would be great to confront your fear of heights!

    • Thanks Liz, I hope to conquer my fears one day

  • Michelle F.

    Those are some great goals you have in place. I wish I would have done this before i turned 30.

    • Thanks Michelle, never too late to set bucketlist

  • I love your 30 before 30 theme. I have a small bucket list but need to broaden it to include more travel time. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Thanks hun, hope you manage to broaden the list

  • These are great ideas. Oh, and PS–Your 30s are AWESOME. Seriously. It’s like the stupidity of the 20s is gone and you are smart, confident, and ready to have even more fun in your 30s. Enjoy!

    • I am glad to hear that Amanda I could do with more smarts than I have right now lol

  • I love your list! I am nearing that 30-year mark very, very quickly (as in, weeks away) and I have been thinking about bucket lists a lot lately. I think it’s time to create my own! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

    • Hope you manage to create one and HBD in advance

  • Robin Rue

    You have some really great things on your bucket list. I have a list, but it’s just a lifetime list, no time limits, so when I do them, I do them 🙂

    • I want to do a life time one one day but not sure what to add on it I feel like with timelines I have higher chance of doing it than without

  • There are some awesome things on your list. You’ll love the winery, the freedom of having your own place and car, and traveling to the States.

    • Thanks Reginia I hope to fulfil all of them
