Budget Bucket List

12 July 2013

Money Supermarket are hosting an amazing competition called 'Budget Bucket List'

It's funny because i have never ever had a bucket list, i normally decide that if want to do something i just it and do it. I have always assumed a Bucket List is something that people do when that have a mid-life crisis or they have dealt with a life and death situation. 

Thinking more an more about my Bucket List i realised that there is so much i want to do before i can't so here is my list:

The Extravagant List:

Volunteering Abroad

Summer 2010 i was arranging a 2 week trip to go to Brazil to volunteer, the trip would have cost a little over £1000 and i was able to bring my son with me. It would have been such an amazing opportunity  to help kids and women who need education, books and general aid that we in the UK take for granted and more importantly i would have been able to show my son how fortunate we are and understand other cultures. Unfortunately for them i got offered to work on my first feature film "Victim' which was an amazing experience and got to work some down to earth people. I have always wanted to volunteer abroad so this is defo something i need to do in the future.

Sky Diving

I know this is probably on everyone's list but this is something i have to experience. A few people i know have done this and have loved it!

Deep Sea Diving

I went to Turkey last year with my family and they had an excursion to go deep sea diving, instead we opted out and done something else... which i can't remember, but i have regretted it ever since. I love the sea and water, i am a bit afraid of what lies beneath but i would be so great to see all the pretty fish.

Work on a Studio Production

I work in the media and as i climb up the career ladder i would love the opportunity to work on a big budget film/programme. I enjoy the fast paced, crazy life that working in broadcast brings and exciting opportunities always arise, so hopefully something like this comes sooner than later. 

Work on a destination Production

This kind of ties into the above desire, all the productions i have worked on have all been based in the UK, i would love to work on a production on location, somewhere exotic like Bali...

Girlie Holiday

I would LOVE to go on a girlie holiday with all my smiles. We have never had one. We always say we are gonna do one but never get round to it! :( To be honest i don't care where we go as long as there is a beach, a pool and cocktails! 

Ok so on to my Budget Bucket list....

Speed Dating

I have always been intrigued by how these things work. I wouldn't necessarily go to meet someone but i reckon it would be fun to see the process and if normal people actually go to these things!

Sight seeing in London

Never been, have to try this as i wouldn't be a real Londoner! I want to do and see everything. Visit Buckingham Palace and take pictures with the guards, go on the london eye, ride on a double decker! You know the deal...

Attend a fancy dress party

Yep... this is one thing i have to do! I really want to dress up as Beyonce 'single ladies' or betty boop, or even a 1920 dancer... just dressing up in someone that is not me would be amazing, i get to play a completely different person. 

So that's my list... looking back it seems like a am quite a bore and don't do anything exciting! Which is probably true!

  1. I haven't been to London either! I can't even believe it. I'd want to go for a long weekend and see everything. Hit all the touristy spots first and then roam around and see what I can find.

    Great list and good luck!
