10 Day You Challenge: 7 Wants

Today's challenge requires me to tell you 7 things I want right now:

1)Enrapture Amplify Jumbo Waver - I am just DYING to have one of these! I reeeally hope I get one for my birthday, I keep dropping hints to Jon! :)

2) An Indian Takeaway - I am STARVING right now and could just murder a chicken tikka madras with pilau rice! :)

3) Naked 2 Palette from Urban Decay

4)To be able to lose weight :( Or at least to just have the ability to control my own weight. I have graves disease and I am treated with steroid based medication, so my weight goes up and down completely of its own accord - back at the start of this year it went down and it was great! Now, its back up again and I feel horrible :(
 Its so horrible to have gone up two whole dress sizes in the space of 4 months even though my eating habits haven't changed, and not be able to do anything about it :(

5) To book the amazing cruise I saw - 24 nights! 12 nights on the fab Independence of the Seas from Southampton stopping in Puerto Rico, Coca Cay and St Maarten, and finishing in Florida. Overnight stay in Florida, train to New York City, overnight stay in Manhattan, and then on board the Queen Mary 2 back to Southampton. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!

6) Bundle Monster stamping plates - I tried stamping for the first time last night with a very cheap set from Ebay just to see if I enjoyed it....and I DID! Now I'm dying to have the BM plates! :)

7)Sleep in rollers - I can't seem to find any anywhere! I keep checking Boots and Superdrug but they never have them in stock. I so want nice curls in the mornings :(


  1. Had to lol about the take away, you've made me hungry now! Mmmmmmm I love tika or korma, I can't handle anything hotter.

    I'm so happy you love stamping and I'm really looking forward to seeing some stamping mani's from you x :-)

    1. Lol sorry! :P I like tikka too but I do love hot sauces from Indians...yum!

      I just put up my first stamping attempt, its not great but was fun lol!


  2. Sorry to hear about the weight roller coaster. I hope it gets better soon.
    Hope you get to go on that cruise, that sounds like so much fun, and if it had a couple more days in NYC that would be brilliant!

    1. Thanks, it'll only get better once they finally figure out if they're operating or killing the thyroid with radio iodine treatment. I wish they'd just hurry up and decide.

      I hope so but I'm not too sure coz we already have one booked for this year that needs to be paid for, and the deposit for this one is DOUBLE what we usually pay! :/
      It looks SO amazing though. I'd be happy enough with 48 hours in NYC, I'm sure I could fit in everything I wanna do in that time - if you cruise there and back with Cunard you only get like 6 hours, so this is def the best deal without flying! :)



If you're feeling generous, please consider leaving me a comment as they brighten up my days and make me feel all warm inside!
