Checking Off That Bucket List.


So I don't know if you've noticed but I have a bit of a bucket list and I thought I'd start to share with you when I've accomplished something on it instead of just marking it off! In the past two weeks I've managed to cross three things off! Shall we have a look?
Learn to make Lemon Curd
Lemon Curd is my favourite spread ever, I may love it more so than I do strawberry jam! I've always watched my gran make it and last week we planned to make it together but instead I ended up making it alone with her watching over me making sure I didn't make it too thick! Haha. The end result had the perfect taste it sweet with an under tone of bitter lemon which is just perfect if you ask me. I can't wait to share how to make it with you all this week!

Have at least Four tattoos
Get my Thigh tattooed
On Thursday I was up bright and early and off to Skins & Needles our local amazing tattoo shop where I was booked in with the lovely Lauren to finally get my thigh done! I was so excited yet terrified the horror stories I'd heard about thighs were haunting me. When Lauren showed me the design I knew I loved it straight away, it was exactly what I'd imagined. I was absolutely amazed watching her as my other three are in places I couldn't really watch whilst getting done (back, ankle &ribs) so watching this was amazing to me. I have to admit I wasn't prepared for the pain, the majority of it wasn't too bad until we got closer to the end but come on tattoos are going to hurt, if you think they're not you're a bit of an idiot. The inner thigh bits and the high up the thigh bits were the worst, inner thigh at the top was awful, it was so worth it though because I'm absolutely in love. Sitting for Three hours was a long time but I did it with only a five minute break, I'm so proud of myself for not crying because I'm a super massive wimp haha. It's been more painful since though I'd say, my thigh is slightly bruised and it hurts to touch and such which is a bit annoying but once it's healed it'll be totally worth it! So Thursday saw me complete two bucket list items in one!

Do you have a bucket list? Do you have any tattoos what do you think about the pain?
