Books and Lifestyle Wish List | May 2022
With my birthday coming up and a chance in circumstances, which means I can once again afford a treat or two! Today I thought I would share my books and lifestyle wishlist for the summer.
Here are some of the things currently on my wish list:
Weighted Blankets have been described as a ‘hug in a blanket’. They’re inexpensive and good for anxiety. Supposedly they can help with sleep and relaxation, and that sounds good to me.
I’m currently doing my annual re-reading of the Harry Potter series. I’ve yet to pick up the MinaLima edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone; to be honest I’ve not even looked at it, so it’s as much of a surprise as possible. I’ve been to the MinaLima shop and gallery in London, and it’s a fascinating little place. I’d love to see more of their work from the Harry Potter world.
This is incredibly cheesy, but I and my family are massive Eurovision fans. And we also adore the stupid Eurovision movie with Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams. I listen to this soundtrack a lot more than I probably should, but it’s typical cheesy, euro-pop and very catchy. I saw that there was a vinyl record and it’s been on my wish list for a while.
I’ve always liked statement earrings, and for years I’ve admired these geometric face earrings. They’re a tad bonkers, but very pretty.
Careering is the latest novel from Daisy Buchanan, author of Insatiable and a well-known journalist. I like the premise of Careering, it feels very current – especially in the world of publishing – and follows a character experiencing burnout and unfairness at work.
Another contemporary novel set in London. The plot follows an aspiring singer as she undertakes an affair with an older more experienced man,
I’m running low on perfume, and a recent favourite is Ghost. This was very popular when I was at school, but I’ve only recently started wearing it myself.
And finally, an adulting wish. I need a new set of plates and bowls. All of mine are chipped and have seen better days. Time to find a new set I think.
