30 Things Every Woman Should Have Before She Turns 30


I just wrote of the most depressing blog posts ever, so it’s time to lighten up. It’s Friday! I’ll be 30 in about three months. I’m praying I don’t go into that reflective mode that so many 30-year-olds go into where I knitpick everything I haven’t done by 30. But if I do, here’s a list to start with. This reposted from Jovian Zayne’s blog, Word Up, Haay, but taken from The Frisky by Wendy Atterberry.

1. Clothes that fit the size she is now, not the size she was five years ago

2. A weekly income that covers the rent (or mortgage payment)

3. An orgasm

4. Always enough toilet paper

5. A hair stylist she trusts

6. A favorite song, porn site, image, movie or fantasy that always gets her in the mood

7. Health insurance

8. A signature drink

9. A healthy relationship with her parents

10. Bras in the correct size

11. Enough alcohol in her home to offer drop-by guests a cocktail

12. An emergency hangover remedy

13. A voter registration card

14. A wardrobe that includes the perfectly flattering little black dress, a great pair of heels, jeans that make her ass look great, and a cute hat that hides a bad hair day

15. A yearly appointment with her gynecologist

16. The name of reliable movers to give her friends when they ask for help relocating

17. The gumption to ask a man out

18. A group of girlfriends who get it

19. A set of tools (and the ability to use them … even if it’s just to hang a piece of art)

20. A balanced checkbook

21. No interest in men who just aren’t that into her

22. A vacation to look forward to at least once a year

23. A good bulls**t detector

24. The courage to stand up for herself and her beliefs

25. A favorite sex position

26. A set of hand towels so guests don’t have dry their hands on her bath towel (gross!)

27. Enough self-love to avoid and break off unhealthy friendships and relationships

28. A commitment to exercise

29. A retirement fund

30. A great vibrator

*And if you’re already past 30, it’s late, but not too late to tackle this list!

  1. Trust me turning 30 is not that bad. I’m 32 and I went through the whole “Oh no, I’m turning 30 what should I/could I accomplish next?” When I examined my life I realized I accomplished everything I wanted to do. Except a great coat. A girl needs a great coat!
