Written by Katie Byrne


The team at TheDiamondStore.co.uk share their pre-turning-30 bucket list...

Time has a funny habit of flying by - meaning the hopes and dreams you had for your 20s can all too easily slip through the net. However, TheDiamondStore.co.uk is here to help.

The online diamond retailer has put together their ultimate thirty-before-30 bucket list for women across the UK - thirty crazy, funny and wonderful targets for every woman to have a go at. Simply read the list below, keep count of how many you've done and then scroll down to see what your answer says about you. Easy!

Plus, if you’re over 30, or a long way away from it, you can still take the test and see which rites of passage you have - or haven't yet - undergone: happy reading!

Take the ‘Thirty Before 30’ list challenge now - how many do you tick off?
