Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a while since I wrote on here, but I hope everyone had a restful end of the year.
For today’s blog post, I wanted to share some of the things I wanted to do in 2022 (purely for inspiration!) This year, I’m putting more focus on doing things that make me happy, and taking care of myself more as I get busier. For me, this means indulging in self-care rituals, and exploring more of the world around me as I love seeing and trying new things. I haven’t seen many bucket list ideas for the new year, so I hope you enjoy reading my one!
1. Visit a new place in the UK
I love exploring new places, and something I’d love to do more of is explore new places in the UK! I would love to take a road/train trip with my friends or family this year, maybe more than once if I can. The destinations that are top of my list are the Lake District, Devon, Bath, Cambridge, or anywhere by the coast.
2. Go roller skating
Fun fact: I’ve never been roller skating before! I’d love to try it sometime, even though I have the balance of Bambi every now and again. I’ve recently been looking around London for places to roller skate: Rollernation in Tottenham seems to be the most popular, where you can rent skates, eat and get drinks there!
3. Visit new exhibitions and museums
I believe that exhibitions and museums can 1. be beautiful, 2. be a source of inspiration, and 3. be a great learning experience. There have been some incredible exhibitions in London recently, but I didn’t really take the opportunity to visit them while I could, so I’m making it more of a priority this year. One that I would still like to see while it’s here is the Van Gogh Immersive Experience in Liverpool Street.
4. Try new restaurants and have new food/drink experiences
I’m a BIG foodie. BIG. HUGE. So, I’m going to try and save up some money to spend just on trying food places that are new to me. I’ve jotted down a few places in my notes that I’d love to try, ranging from Ave Mario to Flat Iron, to trying cuisines I’m not as familiar with in restaurants such as The Ivy Asia and Dishoom. London also has loads of great places that I haven’t tried that focus on a unique experience, such as Alcotraz and The Alchemist, so I’m also keen to try some of them. I’m aware this is a more expensive addition to the bucket list, and I probably won’t get through all the places on my list, but with the right savings and a dream, who knows!
5. Do more activities
As I mentioned before, London is host to great experience-based places, and it’s quite shameful as a Londoner how many I haven’t been too. So, I would like to make it a priority to get out there a bit more in my spare time and enjoy an activity-based date or group outing somewhere fun! The places I’d love to try are Gravity (home to e-karting, bowling, golf, an arcade and more), and Electric Shuffle.
I would love to hear what’s on your bucket list for 2022 or if you have any recommendations for something on my bucket list! Let me know in the comments below.
It’s been a while! But I’m back with a slightly different topic than usual: I’ve been really into the Autumn fashion this year, and some stores have really nailed it, and in some cases, at an affordable price. I was on the hunt for basics, and I got my hands on a few that I […]
Starting university can normally lead to one of three things: excitement; fear; or a bit of both. For me, it was definitely the third. I had no idea what to expect on this new journey, and it didn’t help that I wasn’t the most confident person. You almost want to watch a trailer of your […]
I’m finally back (hopefully with a bang), starting off my Oxford series from when I stayed there back in late August. Oxford is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen in the UK to date: its beautiful Gothic and Baroque architecture are the star of the show for me, but there’s plenty […]
