Twenty-five before I turn 25!

Katie and I at the Blogcademy in our amazing ears


 Blogcademy, birthday lists and new friends ❤

I was lucky enough to attend the Blogcademy in Brisbane on the weekend and had an absolute blast! Such a great way to start my birthday month. In celebration of new friendships and a new chapter in my bloggy life, I decided I’m going to be blogging more regularly ! I met the inspirational Katie on the first day of the workshop and we hit it off!

This Sunday I leave my early twenties behind officially and begin my ‘mid-twenties’. After reading Katie’s blog I was inspired to do my own list of things to complete in a year before my next birthday. You can read Katie’s blog and her amazing adventures here

This post is dedicated to my new friend 🙂

  1. Happy upcoming birthday! Sounds like you’re gonna have an amazing year 🙂

  2. Oooh, fun! I kind of want to join in on 90% of this 🙂 There’s a study that showed that to do lists are more likely to “come true”, when you make them “already-grateful-for-definitely…” lists. So if you say “I’m already grateful for definitely throwing a tea party next year”, it’s more likely to happen. If this really works (never trust science), I kind of like the idea that our brain takes gratitude so seriously 🙂
