// 27 Before 28 Challenge with Freebie //

Whoop whoop, yesterday I celebrated my 27th birthday!!


Last year on my birthday, I shared a post called 26 before 27 challenge (you can read it here). Let me tell you, I FAILED miserably… I think it seemed like a good idea at the time, but then I never fully committed to it like I planned it out in my mind.

This year, I decided to push the reset button and start over again. I made a copy of my free … BEFORE … sheet, which can be downloaded in my previous post (here’s the link) and re-made my list of 27 things to do before my 28th birthday.


Like I mentioned in my previous post, the items on this list aren’t goals that I want to achieve, it is more a list of fun things to do and experience throughout the year before my next birthday. This year’s list might include a few items from my previous year because it is still something I really want to do. Let’s get to it then…


#ONE – Plan an epic UK adventure.

#TWO – Learn to cook 27 new dishes.

#THREE – Read at least 10 books, cover-to-cover.

I would love to hear from you, so let me know what you have added to your list? Maybe I can get some awesome ideas for next year.
