I have wanted a bicycle for a month or so now, after discovering mine was kindly taken to the tip, by my dad (Cheers!). There is a lovely cycle path where I live, that goes along the beach front, and down to the Marina. I have been looking on ebay, gumtree and in the local paper for a pre owned bike, but without much luck. I'm determined to find one to buy in the next week, so I can join everyone cycling along the promenade in the sunshine.
I have made a Wishlist of cute bike accessories. It is unlikely I will be purchasing a brand new shiny bike so these would be the perfect items to jazz up any bicycle. I have chosen two packs of bike spoke beads from Topshop. This bring back memories of when I was little, and everyone would decorate their wheels with these. Topshop have bows, stars and moustache shaped beads on offer.
The horn and cute 'iced' bell are bike essentials in my eyes. There will be no chance I won't be heard with these two. Another feature that many vintage bikes are modelling, is the wicker basket. This is my favourite item on my Wishlist. I already imagine myself cycling along in the sun, with a small picnic in my basket. It's a shame my dogs are not on the small size, they would have loved to be taken for a ride when they were puppies.
The bike locks comes with a little ornamental bird which is girly and fun, a far cry from a chunky boring bike lock. Cute as well as practical!
I came across this bicycle necklace on the lovely site of Oliver Bonas. I recommend having a look at the wonderful collection of jewellery, homeware and fashion. I adore this chic, little bicycle pendant', and it is ideal for this bike themed wishlist. I also love the Silver Marcasite Heart Necklace from Oliver Bonas, see here.
If I could have any bike (if only monopoly money counted as real money), I would pick this beauty. The style and colour is exactly what I would want. It's perfect! Don't forget the cute wicker basket which completes it. It will set you back a cool £499.99. Hence, the reason it is being featured as my Most Wanted. I can only imagine having a bike like this. :-) If purchasing a bike does not go to plan, I will look into renting a bike for a day!
