Budget Bucket List

A couple of days ago, the lovely Elle got in touch with me and told me she had nominated me to take part in Money Supermarket's 'Budget Bucket List' competition. The aim is to include one extravagant bucket list item, along with another more humble purchase. The competition is open until August 2nd so you all have plenty of time to enter, and you can find out a little more by clicking here

1. Have my own studio space.

This would be one of my more extravagant choices! I would love to have my own studio to work from, because at the moment everything you see me produce comes from a small sketchbook, laptop, and mouse. Don't get me wrong, I love working digitally but sometimes I miss working on massive landscape pieces and that definitely isn't possible in my small flat! If I never get the chance to work from a studio, a cute little art room would also be amazing. Tying in with this, I think it would be brilliant to invest in some better storage solutions just to try and keep my apartment a little tidier and more organised - I really hate having art materials all over the place. 

2. Conquer my fear of flying so I can travel abroad again!

Again, this is an expensive choice. I am genuinely terrified of flying, airports, and just the general stress of travelling abroad. I used to quite enjoy it when I was little, so I don't really know how I've become so scared! Anyway, my boyfriend has lots of family members who live in Australia, and his Mum is currently living in Adelaide so it would be really great if we could ever go and visit. Obviously, this isn't going to happen unless I can pluck up the courage (and money of course!). Does anyone have any tips on how to get over a fear of flying? I think I would rather be sedated throughout the whole thing aha.

3. Invest in some more baking supplies. 

Okay, so this one is definitely a lot more mundane, but it's still something I would love to do. Baking is quite a recent fascination of mine, and it's nice that I can finally see myself improving! I've actually managed to make some edible cakes! I would really like to invest in a couple of new supplies so I can fuel my sugar addiction even more. 

So, that's it! I would like to nominated Jennie, Marta & Mollie to take part (only if you fancy it) as I would love to know what you guys would include on your lists.

  1. I love your choices! I hate travelling, going on an airplane scares the hell out of me as does going on a boat but i need to get over that and go and see people aboard at some point! Good luck!! xx

  2. I'm beginning to think we're the same person! I would love a little studio space too, if I was really lucky I would love to set up my own little darkroom so I can process and print my own pictures again, that's the one thing I miss from college! And I'm also terrified of flying, I think it's the thought of knowing you can't get off until it lands once you've taken off. Argh!

    Thank you for nominating me sweet! I'll get thinking and pop up my entry post soon!

    1. Aha! We do have so many things in common! It would be amazing to have your own darkroom; I miss college too because it was nice having so many materials/utensils to use whenever I pleased. Yes! I feel exactly the same way, at least on a train you can get off at the next stop.
      I can't wait to see your list! <3 xxx

  3. I'd love to see the work you could produce if you had your own studio!! Eeep. Dream big C, this can definitely happen if you want it to.

    As for flying, I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for you! I wish I could help, do you have a fear of crashing? I don't really think about the fact I'm in a plane, I just sorta relax and go with it. I was scared as a youngster! I'd hold your paw and go with you to Oz. <3

    I love baking too, I hope you win!!

    1. Aaw, thank you so much for this comment Tara! I think it's the fear of being trapped inside and not being able to get out, but I have no idea what triggered it off! I also start feeling really sickly just being in the airport, checking in etc - it's weird!

      Wah - that's adorable, I'd feel more confident travelling with a seasoned jet-setter such as yourself!
