Summer To-Do List


As well as a list of things I want to do to celebrate the Christmas season, I have a list of things I want to do to try and make the most of Summer this year. Summer is my most hated time of year (I’m sure you feel me, if you’ve had to sweat your way through a number of days where the temperature rises over 35 degrees) so if there is anything I can do to make it more enjoyable I will. Here is what I’m hoping to do this season –

– Host BBQs at our house with friends
– Make iced tea
– Go for walks along the coast
– Make a summer playlist
– Try fake tanning
– Make musk vodka
– Buy some pretty pot plants for the back yard
– Set up the courtyard with a little reading area in the sun
– Spend days up the river with friends
– Try and wear more colour

Spring/Summer Bucket List 2016

Man, if I could turn back time I would happily go back to last year where I had three whole months off work. Three glorious months. Instead, I will swelter my way through another working summer and hate every second of it. There is no denying my hatred of summer, but one way I’ve found to help make it slightly enjoyable is to write a “bucket list” of things I want to do.

– Make sweet tea on the weekends
– Grill out on the BBQ on nice evenings
– Go for walks along the beach on weekends
– Get a professional pedicure
– Host a dinner party
– Work on the garden to make it “summer BBQ” friendly
– Go down south for a long weekend
– Swim as much as possible
– Go to Adelaide for a mini holiday
– Go to the Wanneroo Show
– Watch the movies on my Halloween ‘to-watch’ list
– Make a summer-y music playlist to listen to while driving
– Read all the books on my summer reading list
– Try fake tanning

Hopefully I can get around to ticking all of these off of my list, the last time I wrote one I only managed to complete a handful of them. Wish me luck!

2016 Monthly To-Do List

I think it’s important to treat yourself every now and then. With that in mind, I decided to write myself a list of things to do throughout 2016 to bring myself (and those around me) some joy. I’d love to know what you have planned for 2016 – any fun “treat yourself” type to-do’s planned?

January: Kick start a healthy lifestyle for 2016. I’m feeling (as I’m sure most of us are) a bit sluggish following the holiday season. So the first month of the year will be dedicated to eating well and exercising regularly.
February: Celebrate “Galantines” Day. I’m thinking a nice bunch of roses this year. Because who wouldn’t want to spoil their girlfriends and make them feel extra special on this typically romantic holiday?
March: Spend the night in a hotel. Luxury!
April: Easter Book Haul! Who’s with me?
May: Take my parents out for dinner somewhere nice.
June: Treat myself to a trip to the salon for a fresh cut and colour.
July: Organise a birthday surprise, or a trip for Sebastian’s birthday.
August: Treat myself to a hydrating facial, or a hot stone massage.
September: Finish my online course. Hopefully I can achieve this a bit earlier on in the year, but this is my deadline!
October: Treat myself to a pedicure! A great way to kick start the summer.
November: Organise a small trip away for my birthday.
December: Host a Christmas event of some sort at our house. Perhaps a fun themed dinner party?
