Wishful Thinking..


So today this post is a wish list, I currently am having some financial difficulties adjusting to leaving work back in January - hopefully in time these will be sorted with some budgeting etc :) so if you have any tips please let me know & link me up in the comments!

Being a blogger is honestly so tough when you are broke as you just see so many nice things that people review or write about etc and your like 'omg I want that' and 'oh its so beautiful' etc, we all do it! So I am really struggling at the moment and did some window (internet) shopping whilst having a lazy day.

I can't afford any of these but for now I can dream (no harm in that!), from the realistic to the not so realistic..

Lush Products - Link Here

So I have to admit I have never tried Lush before, I do love bath salts etc but haven't had any in years for some unknown reason. Lush is so big in the blogging community and with so many positive reviews I just really want to give them ago. This set is from there new Mother's Day range but I would be happy with any, just give me a nice relaxing bath to help me rewind when feeling stressed and sad.


I love flowers, anyone who knows me will know this. I have been given a couple of gorgeous huge bouqeuts before from the other half but only like 2 or 3, like honestly its £5 for a nice bouquet in Tesco! (I am actually not that fussy compared to what people may think!) Roses were always my favourite, but in the last couple of years I have grown a passionate love for Tulips, they are so beautiful and come in many colours. Having flowers in the house just makes me feel happier in general, something pretty and fresh to look at - as long as I don't let them die!

Urban Decay Make-Up - Link Here

This product is absolutely huge at the moment, Urban Decay Naked 3 Eye Shadow Palette. At first I was like really what is all the hype about? But the colours are just insanely beautiful, some lovely pinky colours which would create some amazing looks!

MAC Cosmetics - Link Here

More Make-Up? I am not really fussed with MAC at the moment as the prices are just far too exspensive for it all - although don't get me wrong I would love it all! But their lipsticks are so beautiful. There are far too many colours to choose from but at the top of my wishlist are Girl About Town, Creme Cup, Please Me, Peach Blossom, Candy Yum Yum, Plumful and Rebel.

Thomas Sabo - Link Here

Usually I am a Pandora or Tiffany girl, but for those who would buy me presents know which ones I like so have gone for something different to show you, something I don't have - Thomas Sabo These are some of their new charms ready for spring/mothers day I presume. I chose these charms as they all mean something to myself and Corey, plus they are super pretty :) This is a bracelet that all 3 could fit on!

Canon E0S 00D - Link Here

I already have a really good camera the Samsung NX1000, however, since becoming a blogger it isn't really good for what I need it for. So every bloggers dream a better camera to take pictures and possible start You Tube videos in the future! :) I have played around with this a fair bit every time I go into currys and the quality of close up pictures is just amazing if you know what settings to use (I would need practise!)

Disney World, Floria

It would literally be like a dream come true for me, I would really love to go with Corey before I have another baby really. We are hoping that it would be a joint holiday/honeymoon too. This was always be a long shot and will probably never happen with those prices but just how amazing would it be?! I went when I was about 4 years old and I remember barely anything, the only thing I recall with a King Kong ride which for all I know could be me dreaming haha! Although, to let you in on a little secret I am scared of people dressed up in costumes so apparently I screamed the whole time any characters tried to come near me and spent my whole time on the Tea Cup Ride!!

Brit Mums Live - Link Here

So this is a yearly Bloggers Event for parents. It is a 2 day event in London where you attend speakers, an award ceremony for bloggers (voting starts soon guys hehe!) and food etc. But the best part getting to meet lots of fellow lovely mummy bloggers and some really big companies too. Unfortunately the price is just painfully far too expensive so maybe next year I will be there girls :)

Also anything mummy related!! Whether it be some home accessories, jewellery or a mug with mummy on it - literally anything :)

So there you have it, my wish list :) Be sure to let me know what you think and name one thing that is at the top of your wish list right now?!

Love, Gemma xo



  1. I love wishlist posts! I am a lover of lush and haven't been disappointed yet :)
    I think DisneyWorld is always going to be an expensive holiday, there are lots of cheapER ways of doing it, I know thomsons do a package holiday staying in the Disney Allstars Resort for around £1000 per person including 14 nights in a hotel and disney tickets and flights too. (I only know this because I too have been dreaming about this getaway!)
    Hope you get some of your goodies... Mother's day is coming up! ;)

  2. Oh Gemma you and I have a VERY similar wishlist. That LUSH Mum box looks fab, luckily enough my fiance bought me one of their gift boxes for VD. I REALLY want a new camera for my amateur photography and blogging pics and I've been lusting after the Naked3 ever since it came out. Hopefully we can both cross these things off our wishlist soon xo

  3. You'd have an amazing time in DisneyWorld for sure! Great one to have on your to-go list!! And that darn Naked 3 palette hehe I don't have any of the Naked palettes but the colours are super pretty hey? Might buy one of them for my sister for her birthday this spring! :)
