Tech/Lifestyle Wishlist

Hello! I know I haven’t been on as much of a beauty kick lately as I normally am – you can probably tell by the lack of beauty related posts. This wishlist is five homey, tech, life, gadgets I’d love to buy. We all have items we want but don’t need and unfortunately, I think that’s what’s making them more appealing!


1. Fitbit Zip – Magenta

In the past I’ve been one of those people who has said, “Fitbits are silly. What is the point of them?” They aren’t the cheapest, I’ve heard lots of people have had problems with theirs and they probably wouldn’t make them small enough to fit my wrist. Enter Fitbit Zip: you clip it on instead of wearing it on the wrist, it’s the cheapest of the Fitbit family, it’s simple and comes in a gorgeous bright magenta!

Why I want it: I’m curious to see how many steps I walk in a day. My iPhone has a pedometer as part of the health app but when I’m walking I don’t always have my phone in my hand.

Why I don’t need it: My phone has a pedometer and I’m not sure where I’d clip this so it wouldn’t get in the way when I sit down. The Fitbit website suggests clipping it to your bra which I guess could work as it is only small.

2. iPad Air 2/iPad Mini 4 in Gold

I have always been an Apple girl! I don’t like Apple because it’s ‘trendy’ or certain people use it. I find the technology simple, great quality and all the products I’ve owned from Apple have lasted well. I’ve had my laptop for four years now and while it still works fine and has never had any problems, I’ve been considering downsizing to a tablet. I would still keep my laptop for printing documents and anything else I couldn’t use the iPad for. Sometimes it would be nice to have more portability, if I’m watching videos in bed (which I don’t often do) I could rest the tablet on my desk or on my knee and it wouldn’t be as heavy. The iPad would also be handy for taking blog photos and storing them. I don’t store photos on my phone as there isn’t enough space.

Why I want it: It would enable more portability and reduce how much I use my laptop. I would be able to download the WordPress app and write posts straight onto the iPad. I have the app on my phone but only use that to reply to comments.

Why I don’t need it: Apple technology is always updating so it does make me question how long this would be usable for. My laptop can also perform most of the same functions.

3. Sunbeam London Collection Kettle – Blue

If you know me well, you’ll know how obsessed I am with anything related to England! When I saw Sunbeam had created a London collection I immediately wanted to own something from it. The collection comes in pastel colours and metallics but this baby blue caught my eye! There are two styles of kettle, this traditonal one and a smaller, pot kettle with the handle on the top. I prefer the traditional style as it holds more water.

Why I want it: The colour is unique for a kettle and I love England!

Why I don’t need it: I still live at home with my mum and she already has a kettle.

4. Sunbeam London Collection 2 Slice Toaster – Blue

Not only does Sunbeam make blue kettles, they make blue toasters too! It would be adorable to have a matching set. The toasters came with a 2 slice or a 4 slice option which is good if you have a big family because it means you can do more than 2 slices of bread at once.

Why I want it: Same reason as above, you don’t often see coloured appliances and I’d love to have these in my house.

Why I don’t need it: Again, same reason as above. Maybe I can convince mum she needs these and buy the set for her for Mother’s Day.

5. KitchenAid 5 Speed Diamond Blender – Raspberry Ice

I’m a very visual person and love colour and things that are different. Pink is my favourite colour and I’m sure there are plenty of women who would love a bright pink blender! It would go so well with that Fitbit! Juices and smoothies have become popular lately and I know lots of people use a Nutri Bullet to make theirs but I’d chose this blender any day.

Why I want it: Not going to lie, basically for the colour!

Why I don’t need it: I don’t have a house of my own, I don’t juice and my mum has a blender already.

I hope you enjoyed reading about the gadgets I’m lusting after butย really don’t need! Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and what’s on your lust list!

    The iphone pedometer works even if you don’t have it in your hands. I often have it in my purse and it registers my steps. The only issue is when I am not carrying my phone around with me. ๐Ÿ˜›
    I had a FitBit but I don’t use it anymore – I did love it for the steps as well as the sleep monitoring. I ended up developing an allergy to the wristband! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    We have a KitchenAid blender but it is just standard silver – there were SO many options but we just didn’t want to get sick of the colour (I wanted red, personally) That kettle though! Now I want it…

    I want one of those fancy mirrors with the various lighting settings like dawn, daylight, office light… but I don’t need it. ๐Ÿ˜›
