Sponsored Post // My dream car with #TwingoFlamingo

I have some exciting news, guys! Two years since I last got behind the wheel, I'm learning to drive again. It's got to the point where I am just so frustrated with being held back by public transport (erm... and because both my Young Persons' Railcard and theory test certificate run out this summer). With the possibility that I may actually be driving shortly, my daydreams have turned to my ideal car. 

Turns out I'm not the only one thinking along these lines. Renault have released a new campaign based entirely around the idea of a dream car. If you've every wondered what it's like being inside my head, watch the #TwingoFlamingo video below. I'm not even kidding when I say I narrate my whole life in song. As Rich will testify! 

With this video in mind, I decided to create my own idea of my dream car. Unfortunately I'm not going to sing it for you, though. Trust me, it's better for us all if we don't!

My dream car would:

- be mint green. Obviously.
- have a Diet Pepsi dispenser. Which I would only use when stationary, of course! Hands on the wheel at all times while driving. I'm a safe driver, me!
- have a special seat for my boys so they could look out of the window as we drive.
- have heated massage seats.
- have the best mid-00s emo playlist the world has ever seen. (Who am I kidding? My actual car will have this!)
- burn Diptyque candles in a safe, non-naked-flame way. I haven't worked out how that would be exactly but this is my dream car, ok? It would happen!
- house a flamingo. It will really have a flamingo.

(By the way, I asked Rich what he thought my dream car would have and he said "an automatic driving facility?" Nice to know he feels so confident in my abilities!) 

What would your dream car have?

This post was sponsored by Renault but all opinions are my own.


  1. I like the sounds of a drink dispenser but mine would have to be coke and heated massage seats would be a must for any long drives!

  2. I'm obsessed with mint green cars, I swear! x

  3. My dream car would have loads of cup holders haha =]

  4. Heated massage seats = <3 <3 <3
    I would love a pastel pink car. Just a teeny bit obsessed with Pastels, I mean just a little ... ;)

  5. The mint green fiat 500s are SO nice! I have the sky blue fiat 500 and it's the best car in the world, so easy to drive and I've never had any problems with it! My licence plate also looks pretty similar to the word "smurf" (by accident) and because it's blue, people think it's personalised haha!

    My dream car is probably my car to be honest, maybe with air conditioning added in an a never ending supply of Frazzles? :)

  6. Mint green is such a brilliant colour choice for a car and I love the idea of it being able to dispense fizzy drinks too! I need to learn how to drive so badly, the days of buses are beginning to drag... Great post! - Tasha
