101 in 1001

As I’m wanting to share more of my life (beyond just nails and beauty products) here on the blog, I figured I’d share a list of 101 things I’d like to do in the next 1001 days. I’ve seen these lists on quite a few blogs I follow. Since I’m turning 30 this year, I figured it’s high time I start accomplishing some of the things I want to accomplish, seeing things I’ve wanted to see, and having the experiences I’ve always dreamed of. My list is loosely conglomerated into different categories, but here it is in its entirety, and I plan to track it here. I wrote it in my personal paper journal, so I won’t post photos, but I plan on utilizing my blog and my journal to track these goals and get things done!

Without further ado, here’s my 101 in 1001 list. I started my list a few days ago and plan to have this completed byMarch 26, 2019.
