The PrettyGreen 2012 Bucket List

With the passing of the years, there comes a reality that there are certain things in life that we may sadly die having not accomplished. They might be as simple as seeing the cherry blossom in Tokyo, or as random as learning to do a cartwheel.

But we think we should never give up trying or hoping and we should strive to achieve everything in life no matter how big or small.

So, this year we’ve created our own Bucket List and are tasked with helping each other tick something off that list (to help make things a little easier every PrettyGreener has £100 to help make it happen).

We thought you’d be inspired and amused by the list, our favourite’s being Jack getting a middle name, Ben T making marmalade whilst shooting people, Strings setting himself on fire, and Em’s trying to gatecrash the Olympics to swim in the pool.
