January Wishlist

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have noticed my posting birthday shots yesterday. It was my birthday yesterday. I am officially 31 years old and it feels amazing. Apart from me being down with an annoying cold all weekend, I had a great time. Every new year is worth celebrating and I am grateful to have the opportunity to so. I will be sharing more on my birthday later this week. So look out for a birthday outfit post soon. January is one of my favourite months of the year because it is my birth month and it introduces a fresh start to a year. Which is why I am always on high in January.

Say hello to my January Wishlist post, the first Wishlist post of the year! I have a few items I would love to get this month, and I would grab every one of them if I had an unlimited budget. But since I don’t have an unlimited budget, I can only wish to grab all these this month.

Hear a few at the top of my list this January.


Barbour Telescopic Umbrella Navy/Classic Tartan £65

I don’t have a decent umbrella and I find it so embarrassing at times. This Barbour Telescopic Umbrella Navy/Classic Tartan for £65 would be so useful. I like the classic design of the umbrella. It is crafted from 100% polyester yarn dyed classic Barbour tartan. This umbrella features an engraved wooden handle with a metal mechanism. It ticks all the boxes for me.

You can grab this stunning umbrella on Terraces Menswear website. What do you think of this umbrella?


KT Deco Black Oak Carcase Graphite Woodgrain Fronts 3 Drawer Large Chest Of Drawers £235.50 £157

I am badly in need of a few chest of drawers. There are a couple that need replacing. I came across this great website – Dandelion Interiors, and I found some many affordable household decor items. This KT Deco Black Oak Carcase Graphite Woodgrain 3 Large Chest Of Drawers being one of them.

This chest of drawers is designed to introduce comfort and character to any bedroom. It would suit my bedroom so well, with the beautifully co-ordinated woodgrain fronts and matching foil carcase. It offers a touch of modern class to the bedroom and will complement my existing décor, which is amazing. Do you like this chest of drawers? Please share your thoughts.

I am still in the process of sorting out my driving license. It looks like that would be sorted out for good this year, and I am looking forward to getting a new sleek car. We currently have a Range Rover, so I would ideally want a different type of car. I love my Mini Coopers and I am seriously crushing on some of the Mercedes-Benz models I have spotted as well. It is such a cool car brand. Do you agree?

There are so are so many cool options and deals available with companies like Yes Lease. This company is one of the UK leading car leasing broker, and they are known for their very low prices, great customer service and non salesy approach. So it is worth browsing their website (link above) for great car deals. I am seriously loving the deals available on their website.

What do you think of my January Wishlist? Are you wanting any of these items? How are you coping with the January Blues? Does it affect you at all? Please share your thoughts in the comments below. If you enjoyed reading this post, please share on your social media platforms.


Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely week.

How to Pass your UK Driving Theory Test

I have written about my current struggle with passing my driving practical tests and how  I have to retake the driving theory test, because my current theory certificate has no expired, (2 years already) which is annoying. As I prepare to re-take my UK driving theory test; I plan to pass the test once like I did previously, so I have been very busy updating my driving knowledge, and brushing up my skills.

Good we have a lot of driving information available for free online. In addition to the available information and free videos online, I have recently come across a comprehensive driving theory test FAQ put together by Pass ‘N’ Go — provider of driving lessons in Newcastle, Middleborough, Durham and Sunderland, and I found it super useful. It answered all the important questions about writing a driving theory test in the UK. I found it super information, and I am now 1 step closer to my dream car – The Mini Cooper!

Here is a brief summary of the driving theory test information available on Pass ‘N’ Go website.

My Dream Car

I am currently in the process of sorting out my driving license. I have been on this driving lesson fiasco for a very long time now, and I am looking forward to sorting it out for good.

I have had many driving lessons, passed my theory tesr, taken a practical driving test whilst heavily pregnant. Failed the test, and now I have to re-take my theory test (it is over 2 years), which means I have to start the whole process again. I am so sick and tired of the all process, I am eager to be done with it, so I can get my dream car.

Recently, I have been thinking a lot of what sort of car I would love to get for once I pass my test. Maybe it’s s because I recently came across this Cars of the 1980s Film and TV infographic by Vertu Lease Cars. I have been day dreaming of my dream car ever since.

There are many cars I would like to get, but 1 in particular has topped the list for years now, and that is a Mini Cooper. The car from The Simpsons, Homer’s Sedan, kind of reminds me of a good old Mini Cooper. I like my car to be efficient, compact but big enough, and stylish. A Mini Cooper ticks all these boxes and more. I think it is a super sleek car that would exceed all my expectations!


Mini Cooper Picture



The Simpson’s family Sedan car in The Simpsons TV show reminds me of a Mini Cooper every time I see it. I guess the front of car is quite similar to that of a Mini Cooper, or maybe I have just watched too many episodes of The Simpsons. The show is so addictve, I used to be a huge fan of it back in the day.

What is your dream car? Are you driving it? Are you a fan of a Mini Cooper or Homer’s pink Sedan car? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, let’s get talking.
