Reverse Bucket List

Louis Vuitton Speedy 30

A reverse bucket list is a bucket list of the items I have already completed. Of course this isn’t the full list. Incase you missed my bucket list, you can find it here.

Reverse Bucket List

  • Gamble in Las Vegas – I managed to win about $90 after only putting in $3 (2013)
  • Buy a real Louis Vuitton bag – I saved up to buy a Multicolore Speedy 30 in white (Champs Elysée, France 2011)
  • Ride around London in a double decker bus (2011)
  • Eat pizza, pasta & gelato in Italy – I don’t know who would go to Italy & not have any of these (Venice, Rome, Florence 2011)
  • Go white water rafting – it was so cold!(Inn River, Austria 2011)
  • Buy a brand new car – I am technically the first owner of the car, although is had 6,000km on the clock (2010)
  • Crochet a granny square afghan – I made the Spotlight Krista throw. Spotlight released a square a week. (2013)
  • Have my photo in a major newspaper (2011)
  • Ride in a helicopter – my first helicopter ride was the day I got engaged & I’ve had many more since (2011)
  • See the Pope at the Vatican City – The Pope can bless items that you have purchased & send them back to your hotel (Vatican City 2011)
  • Buy a Burberry trench coat – I am so glad I bought a good coat. It was absolutely necessary to have a coat of some kind in New York City in November. (Honolulu, USA 2013)
  • Own a cashmere sweater – now that I have had it dry cleaned I have barely worn it (Honolulu, USA 2013)

YouTube Limelight: Jenna Marbles

Each month I feature one of my favourite YouTube channels. Sharing the little things I like about them & of course the video I like best. This month is Jenna Marbles.
I can’t remember when I discovered Jenna but I have had hours of entertainment from it. Some of my favourite videos start with titles like “what girls/guys do/think”. Then there are many impersonations of celebrities.

This video seems appropriate as I am now in the last year of my 20’s & could take some of this advice.

The main thing I was walt to take away from this video is something that needs to be quoted. Karma is real but it’s not always your job to make sure it gets served.

Bucket List

A bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket, meaning die. This isn’t an exhaustive or final list, I’m sure there will be much more to add as I continue through life. I have tried to make them as specific as possible, although most of the specific goals have I already completed. Some require travel & planning, while others just require time. You will also notice that most of them are experiences rather than things.

 The Bucket List

  • Celebrate a white Christmas
  • Walk on the Great Wall of China
  • See the Pyramids of Giza
  • Write a book
  • See the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights)
  • See the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)
  • Experience a hot air balloon
  • Be a member of the audience on a TV show
  • Go to a masquerade ball (I already have a mask!)
  • Donate a week’s gross wages to a charity (in one transaction)
  • Make a quilt
  • Try starfruit
  • Play the stock market
  • See a fashion show
  • Pay off my mortgage in 12-15 years
  • Own a holiday house
  • Own investment property

I’d love to know what’s on your bucket list, we might share some of the same goals!

If you’re looking for things to add to your bucket list bucketlist.org has thousands of ideas. You can even keep track of your goals as well as get inspired by others sharing similar goals.

The Parcel: Spring 2016


I have been so slack in getting this review organised. I’ve waited ages to try most of the products & now that I am watermarking my photos it seems like such a chore.
