Budget Bucket List

I was recently contacted by Money Supermarket asking if i would like to take part in their new Budget bucket list challenge. They decided to run this competition as the Government budget for this year means that more people are having to watch their finances than ever before. They want to show the nation that it is possible to make some of your dreams come true on a budget. Entering gives you the chance to win  £1,000 to put towards crossing-off an item on your list and the runners up will get £50. So here is my budget bucket list....

1. Afternoon Tea at the Ritz - Afternoon tea at The Ritz is an institution in itself, it is something quite iconic about Britain yet i have never done it, plus i get to put on a fancy dress and pretend i'm posh for the afternoon. I love afternoon tea, i get to eat pretty cakes, delightful sandwiches and scones with clotted cream and jam, i'm drooling a bit just thinking about it

2. Learn to Belly Dance - It is something that has always fascinated me and it seems something suited to a girl with a bit more junk in her trunk, i really do a have a belly that can dance, it just might jiggle for a few seconds longer than most people. It is very much about being proud of your body and loving it, this is an exercise i could get on board with.

3. Go to Loi Krathong festival in Thailand - Have you seen the film Tangled? If not shame on you, go watch it. It is all set around going to the see the lanterns taking over the sky, which i think looks breathtakingly beautiful. Loi Krathong is a festival along the same idea, The name could be translated as "Floating Crown" or "Floating Decoration", and comes from the tradition of making buoyant decorations which are then floated on a river but they also release thousands of lanterns into the night sky. Perfection.

4. Go to Cadbury World - My dad worked at Mars so i was never allowed to buy chocolate as a child as we always had it in the house and i was most certainly not allowed to buy Cadburys, much to my dismay, as i love cadburys, this is one for the child in me, i want to it be like Willy Wonka and make all my dreams come true.

5. Rent out a cinema screen - This is something i think i would probably do for my hen party, loads of my friends, sweets, cupcakes, oneises, watching musicals and singing along as if we didn't have a care in the world. 

6. Go to the Forbidden Corner - There is this magical place in Yorkshire that is a real life Alice In Wonderland. I've had friends who have been and said it was amazing. You can find out more here

7. Leave a lock at the 'Love Lock Bridge' in Paris - There is just something so romantic about this, it is the stuff of fairy tales, plus i would get to be in Paris!

8. Take my boyfriend to the Enchanted Forest - I did this when i live in Scotland and i would love to go back and do it again. It is a light and sound festival in a forest but again it just seems to magical. I can't even begin to describe it. More information here.

9. Take a Burlesque class - I love going to watch burlesque, it is sexy without being pervy and i think there is a real art to it and i would love to learn that, i have said before on Twitter that if i had a burlesque act, i would wear a costume covered in balloons and pop them one by one. 

I hope you enjoyed my Bucket List and i would love to see Rachel's, Emma's  and Leah's Bucket lists.
