My Lemon Cake Living List + Giveaway!

I love Sue Watson's Love, Lies and Lemon Cake. I especially liked the bucket list. It's wonderful to have a list like that and I love achieving goals that I've set for myself. I've made my very own Lemon Cake Living List many years ago and would like to share it with you.

The things I've already done:

1) Climbing a lamppost. It might sound like a very strange thing to do, but I always wanted to prove to myself that I could do it.

2) Finding the love of my life. I've already found mine at the sage of sixteen, so that was one I could cross off very quickly.

3) Eating at a restaurant that has three Michelin stars. Bras in Laguiole is a fantastic restaurant. I was quite scared, because it's also very posh, but I loved it. I will never forget the experience. They also showed us the kitchen which was huge and very impressive.
4) Write a book. I added this to my list when I was fourteen, but it took me a long time before I actually had the courage to start writing.

5) Climb a rock and jump into the water to swim among the fishes. I did that as soon as I had the chance. Of course I was scared, but only the first time...

6) Cycling through Paris. This is one of the best things I've ever done!

7) Starting a blog to share the things I love with other people. It took me a few years, but here I am!

8) Visiting a fancy hair salon to get a perfect haircut. I'm glad this isn't on my list anymore. I chose a famous hairdresser who's popular among celebrities. I will never do that again, it was horrible! It took a whole year before my hair looked all right again.

9) Reading 200 books in one year.

10) Eating something scary. I ate brains and they didn't taste so awful, I actually liked them. It's not something I will choose to eat very often though.

11) Standing under a waterfall. It was amazing and I want to do it again!

The things I haven't done yet:

1) Sending my books to a publisher or agent. I've promised myself I will do that this summer after one more round of editing.

2) Drinking Dom Perignon champagne.

3) Living abroad. I want to experience what it's like to live in another country.

4) Learning how to play an instrument. I envy the people who can. I've had lessons, but I don't know if I will ever manage to do this.

5) Christmas shopping in London and New York. I want to spend that magical time somewhere else for a change.

6) Renewing my vows and organizing a second wedding. I would love to get married again. I liked the first time very much!

7) Buying a Mauboussin ring with money that I've earned.

8) Learning how to stand up for myself. I'm doing better, but it's far from enough yet.

9) Watching a beautiful sunset on a tropical beach.
