101 in 1001 Days #8

Time for another update for my 101 in 1001 days list. It's been a couple of months since my last up date, and I've managed to make some progress. In some weird twist of fate, I feel like this update has a real 'spring cleaning' vibe to it, with pretty much every area of my life getting an overhaul. Some things are fully crossed off, and others are definitely a work in progress, so let's have a good ol' look.

Make an in-goings/out-goings list and use it
I've created the spreadsheet, as you may have saw on instagram, but I've marked it as 'in progress' as I haven't been using it for a full month yet, and therefore it doesn't qualify for a full ticking off. As I'm hardly months away from leaving uni, I thought now would be a really good time to assess my spending, so I can have a good look at what I need to cut back on. Joe reckons I'm an impulse buyer, so I guess the spreadsheet will reveal all!

Renew my passport!
Possibly the most exciting thing on the list, but Joe and I finally renewed our passports. We actually did this in January, with hopes of travelling to Italy in April, but those plans have been put on hold for now. Which is annoying. I'm hoping that Joe will agree to us having a short holiday somewhere once I finish uni/start real life. Fingers crossed my constant "ooh we can go [here] for only [somuchmoney]!" will work on him soon.

Join the gym/gym class
Well, I have successfully joined the gym, AND attended gym classes. I know, right? I'm pretty freakin' amazing. Actually, not amazing at all, as I've gotten fatter since joining. My gym buddy keeps reminding me that muscle weighs more than fat, but yeah, let's not kid ourselves here. My next step is sorting out my eating habits, but sadly I didn't put that on the list.

Spend the day with my nana
This actually happened a few months ago when I went up north to see the fam, as my nana lives up north with the fam. We went out for lunch, and had a jolly good time. Even jollier as my nana didn't have to cook - which is something I wouldn't wish on an enemy, sorry nana!

A work in progress, but it's something that needs constant reviewing if we intend on moving to Bristol in a few months. I decided to make a dent in my ever-growing make-up stash, and invited Joe's little sister round to delve in. It's pretty ridiculous how much unopened make-up I actually had, considering I never wear the stuff! I even started getting rid of clothes I haven't worn in ages, but I definitely need to do this again.

Start a perfume collection
A new addiction to the collection - Beyonce's Midnight Heat. I know a lot of people stick their noses up at celeb fragrances, but I think it makes a really nice 'every day' kind of scent, although I'm sure with midnight in the name, it's intended for some sort of late night rendezvous. At £10 for 100ml, I couldn't say no to this. The joys of staff discount, ey?

Do a 'Photo An Hour' post, properly
I managed to do February's post, all thanks to setting hourly alarms on my phone. You can see the post here, if you'd like to relive my life. I'm hoping to do the one for this month as well, as I'll hopefully be having a fun day. 

Do you have a bucket list?
