Having read a post on The OMG Diaries blog, where Sophie complied a list of 101 challenges that she wanted to complete in 1001 days, I have been inspired write my own 101 in 1001 Days Challenge. It is like a mini bucket list with a timeframe!

Like Sophie, I have done a mix of personal, health, travel, financial and fun, but also I have 10 slots for suggestions from any of my readers, so get your thinking caps on and join me over the next 143 weeks as I try to complete as many as possible.

Start Date: 24th March 2018
End Date: 19th December 2020
