Weekly Wishes

I wish...
I could live in New York full time. Those of you on the Cocoa Kisses mailing list might have heard that I'm going to be visiting up there for a few days towards the end of the month and I cannot possibly explain how excited I am. Something about that city is mesmerizing, hypnotizing, like no other place on Earth. It's my perfect fit, my high-speed dream world, my late night walks through the park and early morning bagel runs. I miss it and all the other wandering souls that it takes in.

I wish... I could play the guitar. I've had late night dreams since I was a little girl of jamming out acoustic tunes on the beach or of strumming happily on a ukulele while strolling through the park.

I wish... someone in my immediate family or circle of friends was a world renowned chef. Sometimes I have these insatiable cravings for having wild dinner parties filled with crazy, out of this world food - the kind that only a highly trained culinary artiste would be able to make. Think late nights spent laughing and drinking fizzy drinks while making zucchini lasagne and coconut thai noodles. Think chocolate macaroons filled with super sweet sorbet and mango ice cream for dessert. Think Nutella and banana crepes in the morning stacked up so sweetly like tiny cakes and frosted with homemade whipped cream. It would be culinary perfection!

I wish... for a henna set! I've always thought that the delicate henna patterns traced across palms is one of the most beautiful things in the world.

What do you wish for this week, bunnies?

I wish... my boy was back from America.

I wish... I didn't have to work on Saturdays.

I wish... I had heaps of black bangles that I would wear from wrist to elbow on both arms.

I wish... I didn't have to wait to found out some things.

Love your blog by the way. I'm a new reader!

I wish...I could work up the nerve to go to Fashion school in London.

I wish...I could make and decorate the most amazing cupcakes.

I wish...that my boy was here, not renovating his house.

I haven't gotten a Cocoa Kisses e-mail, I thought I signed up... I'll try again!

I wish that sunburn wasn't acquired so easily... *wistfully touches face* Ooowww.

I wish I could see my boy more often. Silly school/NHS/extracurriculars :p
