  1. Great list! Good for you for trying all these wonderful things 🙂

  2. Thanks for reading my blog. I LOVE your list. I’ll be cheering you on.

  3. #35 – Word of advice – do not go cheap on (red) lipstick. Unless you want it wear off easy or end up on your teeth. Also, go matte. Seems to last longer. Try Lancome’s new matte line. I have a red lipstick from them that I wear almost daily. I have always felt that very woman should have a tube. Most definitely.

  4. To piggyback on #33, how about Take a Last Minute Train? It’s an entirely different way to experience a place – more up close and personal. You get a view both gritty and glamorous – fun inspiration for a great writer like you! I’m really enjoying your blog and wish you all the best, Terri

    • Sorry for the late reply, and thanks for commenting. We don’t have much of a rail system here in Central Florida, but I did once look at the minimal train schedule for the next day, picked a town and booked a ticket. It did in fact give me quite a few pages of notes and observations. Thanks for reading 🙂
