10 Day You Challenge - Day Four - Seven Wants


Day Four: Seven Wants
Right, don't expect any Pageant-style "world peace" answers here, this is pure unadulterated materialism. Here are the top seven things on my wish list RIGHT NOW.

1: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. (Available from Amazon, €6.50 approx)
Scarlet is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles series. I read the first in the series, Cinder, this week and I'm hooked. Imagine the classic Cinderella story, only set in New Beijing, where Cinder isn't a servant girl who daydreams about pretty dresses, but a badass Cyborg mechanic who holds the key to the survival of the entire world. Her stepmother hates her, the city is rife with disease, and the handsome Prince has a very difficult decision to make. Scarlet is a new take on Red Riding Hood, and I can not wait to read it.

2. Rebecca Minkoff Blake Satchel. (Available from, approx €165 on sale)
I love browsing the Rebecca Minkoff site and looking at all the pretty bags. This is the one that keeps drawing me back in - the studs, the colour, the leather, the shape - sigh.

3. Lancome La Vie Est Belle. (Available from debenhams, €80 for 75ml)
I'm seeing this perfume everywhere at the minute and it's only increasing my longing for another bottle. I bought my first one on my honeymoon last year and it ran out ages ago. It's only just occurred to me that if I save €4 a week for 20 weeks, I can have a 75ml bottle of this before Christmas. Wooohoo!

4. Babymoov Changing Bag. (Available from, €57.99)
Look at it. LOOK AT IT. It's the most beautiful changing bag I've ever seen. I love the shape, the colours, the structure - it's a thing of pure beauty. Whether or not I can manage to save for it is another story, but it's been on the wishlist for a while and I WILL get it, even if this baby is Junior Infants by the time I do. It's gorgeous.

5. Blue Comic Boom Snood. (Available from New Look, approx €7)
I'm going through a very mature comic print phase, and I want that snood. Unfortunately it only seems to be on the UK site, but if I see similar I'm definitely going to pick it up (after my spending ban lapses).

6. Wonder Woman Converse. (Available from Schuh, €55)
I love these. I love converse, I still mourn my grey & black all-stars that I left in someone's house over 12 years ago. I love the print, and they look so comfortable. I seem to always wear either boots or ballet pumps, so it'd be nice to have some converse again.

7. Angel Series 1-5 on DVD. (Available from Amazon, approx €42.50)
I've never actually watched the last series of Angel, and I really want to. This would be ideal for winter when baby arrives and I'm up at all hours of the night.

Sigh - this was fun and awful all in one, but I find sometimes when I write things down, I'm more inclined to work harder to get them. Wait and see, come Christmas, I'll be stinking of La Vie Est Belle while rocking my changing bag on one arm, satchel on the other, and wearing the converse that my husband will hate.

Yep. Positivity, man. Positivity.
