I am thinking of things that I need right now. Okay ‘need’ is too strong a word. The feeling is more like a ‘craving’. But most things are just stuff I can afford but am putting off buying for some random reason. Here is my top 5.
1. A Haircut
Thick, beautiful hair is one of the perks of pregnancy and I am liking the condition of my mane at the moment. My look needs an update though and I am very much inlove with Zoeey Deschanel’s hair. She’s got the messy quirky look that’s seems easy to maintain. I don’t like anything high maintenance. And I want pretty bangs.
2. Colorful leggings
The weather is a-changing! Dubai is gearing up for the short cold months. I am lusting for these colorful tights from H&M. I am pretty sure I will be wearing a lot of black in the coming months (post pregnancy body) so these colorful tights will definitely give my wardrobe a boost without costing too much. Tights AED 26 in all H&M Stores in the UAE. Available in mustard yellow, petrol, red, burgundy, mint green, coral.
3. Cake from Bakemart or Limetree
Its been so long since I had cake. I love the honey cake or pistachio marble from Bakemart or the carrot cake (image from danderma.com) from Limetree cafe. But my sweet teeth (all of them) need to wait until I give birth because of gestational diabetes.
4. Instax camera
I just want a new toy to play with, but DH has his eye on me because getting this for myself is an unnecessary splurge. Image courtesy of photojojo.com. Fujifim Instax costs around AED 300 for the 7s.
5. Icecream maker
Been craving for frozen yoghurt my entire pregnancy but its just too expensive to have it everyday. An ice cream maker might be the answer to all my cravings. However, winter is almost here and it won’t be practical to buy one when its cold. So I’ll just wait for March to get one. Or is someone getting me one for Christmas? Image courtesy of souq.com. Hehouse ice cream maker worth AED 91.00
