My Summer Bucket List

summer bucket list

I know that we are already flying through summer but I thought I would do a summer bucket list for what I would love to do before summer ends.

Go strawberry picking

Sunbathing and basically just gaining more freckles

Eat lots of lemon gelato

Go to the beach

Paddle boat in Centerparcs

Make daisy chains like I did when I was younger

Wear more bright summery clothes

Eat lots of watermelon


Watch a sunrise or sunset

Go on some bike rides

Enjoy Prague in August

Play tennis in Centerparcs

Take lots of photos

Go swimming

Read tonnes of the books that are on my bookshelf

Drink homemade lemonade

Have lots of picnics

Walk around local parks

Keep the scrapbook I do for my boyfriend updated

Eat BBQ food as often as possible and not feel guilty about it!

Buy lots of flowers and admire them before my cats inevitably eat them

What is on your summer bucket list?

    I love your bucket list and mine it’s almost the same..the thing here where I live is that it’s very hot and most of the time I don’t do anything because I can’t function because of the heat hahah

  12. July 3, 2017 / 11:12 pm

    Nice list!!! I’m off to Prague in October πŸ˜‹

      Oh really?! That is amazing! Hope you have a great time! xx

  13. July 4, 2017 / 2:39 am

    There is NOTHING like having lemon gelato or watermelon in the summer! It is a little luxury we have to enjoy while we have it.

  14. July 4, 2017 / 5:48 am

    What a lovely list! You and I shall spend the summer eating lemon gelato together (:

  15. July 4, 2017 / 5:56 am

    I’m going strawberry picking on Wednesday! Wohoook.

  16. July 4, 2017 / 6:14 am

    Oooooo! The strawberry place I normally go to released that their berries didn’t really make it through the crazy weather we had so they had very few, very small berries. πŸ˜“ Hoping to be able to go next year!

    • July 4, 2017 / 1:03 pm

      Nooo πŸ™ Ah that sucks! Hope you can do it again soon xxx

  17. July 4, 2017 / 7:03 am

    I love the idea of strawberry picking. I’ve been wanting to grow my own strawberries for the longest time! But maybe I can go fruit picking instead – mangoes grow where I live!

    • July 4, 2017 / 1:02 pm

      Really?! Ah I’m so jealous that is so cool! I really want to grow my own too! xxx

  18. July 4, 2017 / 9:33 am

    Your cats love gardening too? Lol sounds like you have awesome plans. Now you have me craving watermelon πŸ™‚ we share a few Summer goals, I really want to go swimming. xx

    • July 4, 2017 / 12:52 pm

      Hahaha!! They are little nightmares really. Watermelon is just the best, I love it xx

  19. July 4, 2017 / 9:45 am

    Star gazing, I’ve always wanted to do that myself it sounds so peaceful :). I haven’t had lemon gelato that sounds delicious. How you feel about BBQ is how I feel about hispanic food, I plan to eat a lot of it without feeling guilty myself lol. For me, I wanted to plan a couple of road trips and maintain exercising. I actually played tennis for the first time in over a decade yesterday and it was a lot of fun! Sipping on homemade lemonade while reading a book sounds lovely,so does a picnic. I hope your able to do most of them, if not all!.

    • July 4, 2017 / 12:52 pm

      Lemon gelato is my absolute favourite! Yesss girl, that sounds great?! Road trips sound amazing – what a great shout! All of these ideas have got me so excited for summer! xx

      • July 7, 2017 / 3:29 am

        yes, summer time is a lovely time to do all these things :). yumm I’ll have to try it, though I don’t think it will compare to gelato from Spain. I love your inta pictures btw, Spain looks so beautiful and your outfits are so cute.

        • July 7, 2017 / 5:36 am

          Ahhh no it will never compare, that’s for sure!! πŸ™ ah really!? I was thinking of doing a Barcelona lookbook?? What do you think? Xxx

          • July 7, 2017 / 11:43 pm

            yeah :/ looks like I’ll have to go to Spain for the real thing. Yes! that’s a great idea πŸ™‚ I’m always down for fashion inspiration, I’ve been trying to come up with new looks for the summer.

  20. July 4, 2017 / 5:35 pm

    Strawberry picking sounds lovely. And then the tarts and cheesecakes that could bake away at the end of the session. Yum πŸ™‚ xx

    • July 4, 2017 / 10:33 pm

      That sounds amazing, what a great idea! xx

  21. July 4, 2017 / 6:44 pm

    I love seeing other’s bucket lists because it gives me inspiration. I think I’m going to have to make one of these. Glad to find your blog!

    Summer means summer holidays (in most of the cases). Time to charge batteries and have a proper rest. That`s definitely number 1 on my list. I may borrow some of your ideas as well πŸ™‚ Great post πŸ˜€

  30. July 27, 2017 / 1:42 pm

    After reading your summer bucket list I’ve been completely inspired to make one! I’ve been forming one in my head but what an amazing idea to make it a blog post! I think at the end of the summer I’ll even do an update with images of what I’ve managed to do and how enjoyable it was x

    • August 17, 2017 / 9:16 pm

      That sounds like such a great idea! xx
