New challenges for 2019

The first day of 2019 is almost gone. After a quit New Years Eve we met each other at our annual social New Years Day neighbourhood party. I wore one of my LBD and made a plate filled with pigs in a blanket. (an idea of eldest daughter).
Besides ideas, plans and challenges for my homemade wardrobe I’m everyday working on 10k steps/day challenge.

It’s almost 2018. I started this year with a bucket list of 15 items. How many items are completed after 365 days. Time for my Round-up Bucket list 2017. I start with the items that are still on the list. Traveling with a mobile home, eating french fries in Belgium in a so could ‘frietkot’ and using all the giftcards. That doesn’t sound too bad.

Bucket list 2017 goal settings

Bucket list 2017 goal settings – why

Bucket list 2017 goal settings are my personal goal settings for 2017. In 2015 I made a bucket list too. I had 10 items on my bucket list and at the end of 2015 I had done 5 of them. One of them was starting my blog. Last December I decided to make a bucket list for 2017. During 2016 I had some personal ambitions that were still unfulfilled and I decided that I wanted to assign this open-ended goal settings.

On the 8th of December in the last year Paprika Patterns released  a new sewing pattern: the Zircon dress and I had the change to write a review for this dress.

2016 open ik met een nieuwe jurk. Een van de kledingstukken die nog steeds ontbrak aan mijn kledingkast was een LBD.

Paprika Patterns kwam vorig jaar op 8 december met een nieuw patroon: de Zircon Dress en ik werd gevraagd om een recensie voor deze jurk te schrijven.
