My 2018 bucket list – personal + professional goals
Evening babes, I hope you have all had a lovely weekend ♥
Earlier this month I shared my very personal resolutions for 2018 and today I want to share my bucket list as well, I don’t know how much you guys are getting out of this, but for me it feels great to put these things into writing and it is also a great way to hold myself responsible – haha there is no taking it back once it hits the internet!
Get my drivers license
I have been putting it off for years, but after moving a bit outside Copenhagen and owning a house with a driveway, then I think it is about time that I finally got a drivers license!
I didn’t get it as a teenager when all my friends did because I had major surgery (scoliosis) and wouldn’t be able to drive + I have always had major anxiety about driving, so I just continued to put it off even when I had recovered from my surgery, but it is time to face my fears and go get that license!!
Improve my photography skills + learn how to use photoshop
It is embarrassing how little I know about photography and photo editing with the business I am in, so I have decided that I really need to step it up this year! I want to properly learn how to use my cameras and all their many settings + I need to learn how to use photoshop, so I can really take my photos to the next level.
Develop an ebook
I have been wanting to do an (recipe) ebook recipes ever since I first started blogging, but I have never gotten around to actually doing it. Last year my very first cookbook was published, so now there are no more excuses to put it off – if I can put together an actual physical book, then I can also do an ebook!
Hah I kinda wish I had a whole team of editors, graphic designers, photographers etc. to help me this time as well though ;)
I am currently in the process of brainstorming ideas and trying to come up with the perfect concept, let me know if you have any suggestions or wishes for the book ♥
Start a Youtube channel
I have been wanting to start a Youtube channel for quite a while now, but I have been putting it off because I am not really that fond of being in front of the camera and since English isn’t my first language, then I am quite nervous about my accent and language skills as well. I really want to give it a try though, so I have decided to film a couple of videos and see how I like it, if I am happy with how they turn out, then I will start my Youtube channel! Phew I have a lot of new things to learn and anxieties to overcome this year!!
Relaunch by Silah
My little sister and I launched an eyelash brand and accessories webshop a couple of years ago, but our individual careers started taking off and we kinda ended up neglecting the shop a bit. That is all about to change though, we have been working on new products for almost 6 months now and our plan is to relaunch the webshop and our brand entirely in 2018. I am so excited to show you guys what we have been working on ♥
I am on kind of a tight budget this year (unless I make a lot more money than expected, you never really know in this business), so I won’t be able to travel quite as much as I had hoped, but the dream is a girls trip to LA and Vegas in the fall + a weekend trip with my sister to somewhere in Europe in the spring, fingers crossed! I had really hoped for a NYC trip as well this year, it has been way too long since I have been there, but it sadly doesn’t seem very realistic right now.
Read at least 12 books this year
I know it does not sound like much to read 12 books in a year, but ever since I went to law school and had to read large amounts of law literature and legislation, then I completely lost my love of reading. I know it is still there and I am slowly finding it again, so to help me really get back into reading I have decided that I will need to read at least a book a month this year. Before law school I would read a good book in just a day, so it should be manageable to get through one a month – at least I hope so! ;)
Clean out my closet – completely!
My closet is such a mess and it has been for years! I organize it regularly, but it is still always a bit of a mess because I simply have wayy too much clothes, too many shoes, too much of everything! I am absolutely awful at cleaning out my closet and I hold on to everything even though I haven’t worn it in ages, so my otherwise really large closet is just bursting to the brim making it impossible to properly organize everything.
This year I want to get my sh*t together and finally completely clean out my closet so that I only keep the clothes that I actually wear + a couple of pieces that I might not wear very often, but that have a lot of sentimental value. Let me know if you know any good places to sell my stuff – an embarrassing amount of it still have tags on and I am saving for my travels, so I could use the extra $$
Get more comfortable being in front of the camera
As I have mentioned many times before I absolutely HATE being in front of the camera, it gives me so much anxiety that I barely know what to do with myself + my face makes this weird expression that is just not pretty. If any of you are Friends fans, then you know what I am talking about – Chandler face – I get a total Chandler face in front of the camera!!
It is really annoying and inconvenient to feel so anxious about being photograph being in this business and it is really holding me back, so it is something that I want to work on this year. I am not sure whether I will have much luck with it, but hopefully if I practice enough and just keep pushing through even though it makes me feel so anxious, then will be able to get more comfortable in front of the camera at some point.
Get into a proper skincare routine
I am the absolute worst when it comes to skincare and having a proper routine. I mean, most of the time I can hardly be bothered to remove my makeup at night – pretty gross, I know. I am so incredibly lazy when it comes to skincare, but also super nervous about growing older and seeing signs go aging (such a cliché!), so I really need to get my sh*t together and start taking better care of my skin. I already have all the products so now I just need to start using them regularly!
