101 Goals in 1001 Days

Happy New Year everyone,  I know I am a few days late but I hope you all had a great holiday! I took some time off from blogging to enjoy the festivities with my family and friends and to be honest I had lost my blogging mojo. I'm back now and ready to hit the ground running.

My first post of 2014 is going to be a little different, its my list of 101 Goals in 1001 Days. I saw this first on Aoife's blog Fashion Turn To The Right a while ago but am only getting around to putting my own list together. There are some great lists out there at the moment which have inspired me to make mine.
