'Before I Sail' Wishlist

The Betty Stamp is going into re vamp mode, I'm setting sail on the big blue for 5 months and will have zero access to my kitchen :( Boo hiss boo. BUT before I / you get my / your knickers in a twist, I'm going to be travelling and exploring the delicious delicacies of Mexico, Hawaii, Peru, Tonga, Samoa, NZ, Oz, Bali, Java, you name it, and I plan on snapping and stealing recipes from these stunning countries to share with you beautiful people.

I have 12 days left in the UK …. 12! (AH) so am trying to cram as much in as possible, splitting my time between family in Somerset, William in Leeds and friends in London. So much to do! So I thought I'd have a wishlist brain storm as you might like to take part in some of these shenanigans too!

Kiss Me Kate
To watch William in Opera North's Kiss Me Kate. If it's half as incredible as Carousel last year, I know I will be sobbing. One of my favourite things to do = watch William perform. He's magical and mesmerising (not that I'm bias…)

Birthday Cake
Baking my brother the best birthday cake he ever did see! And snuggling with my family for an entire weekend before I say some teary goodbyes.

La Boheme ENO
I'm gutted I'll miss this but if you've never been to the London Coliseum nor heard any Puccini then this is your Winter ticket. You only need listen to the recorded clips on the website to fall in love with the stunning voices of Corinne Winters & Zach Borichevsky. I'm currently sat in Costa plugged in, covered in goose bumps. Plus their new contemporary version is in English - you have no excuses!

Harry Potter World
My brother's birthday present to me - boy does he know me well. The thought of going next week is filling me with so much childish giddiness I can hardly contain myself. To wear a lightning bolt on my head or not to wear a lightning bolt on my head…that is the question…

I plan on watching as many series on Neflix as physically possible before I venture into the land of zero wifi and foreign lands. Orange is the New Black is ticked off, Mr Selfridge and Sons of Anarchy are next on my list. Hand me the popcorn!

Bikini Shopping
Pretty self explanatory…I haven't worn a bikini yet this year, (hello crash diet). I started my collection with this block one from River Island and I loooove it. Thank you and grassy ass River Island.

Happy hump day all! Let me know if there's any adventures you think I should cram into my list.

  1. Lightning bolt it up! I visited a month after it opened and we were in the minority who didn't dress up. Go for it. If I go again then I'll definitely be Lunaring it up.

    1. Aaaaahhh it was so freaking amazing! Knackered now, and the name of your blog has just given me an idea of exactly what I want to do!! :) xx
