Payday Wishlist


1//2//3//4//5//6//7//8//9//10

Another payday another wishlist. We finally booked our honeymoon this month (hurrah!) so I had beach walks and cocktails in mind whilst online perusing, plus I have to look nice whilst schmoozing with Dolphins no? I'm planning on buying the pink dress and saving it from the shrinking waters of the washing machine until the summer, I don't want to be one of those women you see strolling through town showing off too much buttock. I hate how the appearance of sun also means the appearance of un necessary flesh : / Especially when a stray naked bingo wing grazes past you...
Last night I had a bit of a situation, I haven't "had tea" at anyones house for ages, the kind where you sit around a table with their parents like you used to do back in school, well I found myself "having tea" (or dinner if you're more posh than me) at my friends house where her mum kindly dished me up a portion of smoked fish. I'm not a fish eater and forgot that there may be unwelcome bones hiding within it, I started chomping away and got a whole mouthfull of little fish bones. Vile. but what do you do? As I was the guest conversation seemed to be directed at me and I couldn't stealthily spit it into a napkin as there wasn't one. I remembered her mum being a sucker for table manners. I panicked. I CHEWED THEM. Then gagged at the thought of swallowing them and spat it out ungracefully into my hand. Classy. So what is the general bone etiquette? Is it frowned upon to launch it out of your mouth back onto the plate? Do let me know!

  1. I have dandelion by benefit, it's literally my favourite makeup and completely irreplaceble from my makeup bag. buyitbuyitbuyit!

    as for bone etiquette.... definitely spit them out, better to look silly for a few seconds than choke on a bone! plus, if you have bones in yours chances, are everyone else will too

  4. Hmmm...I would possibly cough, and politely cover my mouth with my hand (like a polite lady), but stealthily deposit the bones into my hand. Then...I dunno...hide them somewhere and hope you never get invited back again.
    Also, I very much like the look of number 3 skirt.

  6. HA! this reminded me of when I used to have to go to a child minder after school, and one day she fed me beetroot, and I had never had it before, and thought it would be nice (because it's red, maybe?) took a huge mouthful, hated it, couldn't swallow it because I was literally gagging, so I ran to the toilet, spat it in, flushed it, the bloody toilet overflowed and poured beetrooty water all over their cream carpet! Whoops...
    Love the dress (5) and the wedges!! Where's the honeymoon?

  7. Yay for booking the honeymoon! And omg @ your story. I have no idea what I'd have done though... usually I poke around and get rid of the bones before I put it in my mouth. But I hate eating meat that comes with loads of little bones!

  12. Ahaha i love your little fish anecdote! I think you just have to take tiny bites and try and then if you find a bone, stealthily slide the bone out of your mouth, but make sure there isn't any half chewed fish flesh still hanging on there. Well, I think this is possibly the strangest comment I've left on a blog!

    Moving on.. lovely wish list. That pink dress is so pretty and I love the models own nail polish! Such a great colour. so exciting you've booked a honeymoon :) where are you off to? xxx

  18. Oh bleh I'm vegetarian, and usually I have no problem whatsoever with people eating meat/fish but that story made me squirm!!! Love the dress, hate that my Missguided dress is turning into a top every time I wear it. Frustrating!

  23. Oh gosh, I love that pink dress. I agree... too much flesh is knocking about in summer... undeeded flesh!

  24. Lovely picks - all the dresses are so pretty!

    I'm not a huge fan of fish food - I'd have no idea what to do if that happened to me except really want to spit them back out into a napkin/tissue or something! Wergh! I remember when I was eating dinner round the Boy's house and his Dad did try to get me to try some fish...I wasn't having any of it :P haha xx

  25. Ohh, that fish-bone story seems awful! I hate fish bones, I just can't eat them, I always get them, oh so unsophisticated, out of my mouth.

    But hell yeah, I love the wishlist! And yay for booking your honeymoon!
