Officially Joining the 101 in 1001 Movement

I read a lot of different blogs around the internet and one blog in particular caught my eye because of its adorable name. Pink Champagne Problems is written by a girl in NYC and on her blog she had a list of 101 things she'd like to do in 1001 days (the idea of 101 in 1001 was created by another blogger Mackenzie Horan).  It's so true that the list is way better than a bucket list since it puts you on a shorter time frame. It also fits my obsession with making To Do Lists...so natch I wanted to create my own 101 in 1001. It seems this was most popular back 2013 but there are a lot of people still doing them! Here is my list.

  1. Goodluck for filling your list, what a fabulous idea! I'm actually really interested by this idea, it might make my new year a bit more satisfying. Did you add the fittness/career/finance sections yourself or was that already set? xx
