101 in 1001: Take 2

If you were following me in 2013 you may remember a post I did called 101 in 1001 Days Challenge. The idea is that you write a list of 101 things you want to do within 1001 days. I have removed my old post as I got a little embarrassed reading it - it's weird how much you can cringe just looking at something previous you wrote. However, I thought I would reboot it and see how I go this time around. I hope you'll join me.

    Katrina Sophia

    1. It's almost a mission to grow your hair really long! Best of luck x

  2. Fit into that blue and white dress. - one of my favourites ^.^

    My long hair and I have a love hate relationship. It takes so much time to make my hair look good and presentable.

    I wish you best of luck with your list. And I hope you enjoy your journey even if you don't accomplish everything in 1001 days. You've got a whole life ahead of you.

    P.S. Excuse my bad English. I'm not a native speaker.

    1. I've always been so close to fitting into it - it's just that the zipper at the back doesn't go all the way up!

      I definitely understand the love/hate relationship with your hair, but I actually find that my hair at it's current length is so much easier to make look good and to manage. :)

      Thank you very much for your comment Anastasiia, your English is perfect!

  3. #91! I wish I had thought of that one myself! Haha. Damn it. I just completed #54 though and it really does take a bit of thinking on the topics! Can't wait to see how you go :)

    1. Thanks lovely! You could always add #91 to your bucket list :)

    Go camping with friends.

    Get my provisional license.
    Go on a road trip.

    and for all the right reasons, too. I say heck yeah to Youtube videos, and all these underestimated acts of love. If you're ever in Perth I'd love to show you around (though there's not much)!

    1. Thank you for the lovely comment. I will definitely take you up on that offer if I manage to get there in the next few years! x

  5. I love your list. I am currently scrambling to finish up mine (I have until sometime in 2016).
