I think that right now is the perfect time to start thinking about summer. You know what, it feels like winter has latest forever. Then, why not start planning your perfect summer now so you make sure that you make the most out of it? I've listed some bucket list inspiration down bellow.

Do something new every week
You can easily fall into the trap of writing a fancy bucket list and never end up ticking anything off. Therefore, I think it's a good idea to write down a simple list of things and do one of those things once a week for the whole of summer. That way you end up feeling like you've achieved something and get to have all the fun.

Have a beach party
I think summer and then I think beach. They're both just destined to be together. Get a few friends together and head there for a fun day out. You could play beach games, like volleyball and even have a little campfire or BBQ at the end of the evening (you know, if that's allowed on that particular beach).

Watch a sunset
This is one of the most beautiful things to do and all so relaxing. With the warmer and longer days, summer is the perfect time to enjoy the view. This is also an actively that can be beautifully enjoyed alone and it can give you some much needed time for relaxation.

Outdoor yoga
Yoga is a great way to relax and there's something refreshing about doing it in the open air when it's sunny. I went to the park to do it last year and I 100% plan on doing it again this year. I just hope the weather picks up sometime soon.

Go to a water park
It's been so long since I have been to a water park and I really want to go back to one. It's a great way to have some childish fun and giggles. Take a friend and have some fun splashing around in the waves.

Make your own ice-cream
I had an ice-cream maker... like ages ago now. It's so much fun making your own ice-cream and experimenting with different flavours. I mean, why go to the shop when you can make it yourself, right?

Go camping or glamping
I've always wanted to have a camping experience. Last year I was looking into glamping sites but it never ended up happening in the end. This year I'm going to try to make it happen because I think it would be so much fun.

Meet some new people
I think it's always nice to meet new people because it opens your mind to new ways of thinking. You could try joining a club or finding new people online (as long as you're safe of course).


I've been a little bit obsessed with aliens lately. They're just so cute and I've been watching The X-Files. It's a really nice slouchy design and feels nice against the skin. Also, the collar detail adds a bit of interest to the design.

I'm also loving this super cute cactus plush. I've always had a special place in my heart for cacti. They're just so cute right? Here are some of my favourite cacti related products:
