5 Unique Items Tag

30 Mar

I’m starting this tag off, because I can’t find anything else like it on the internet and it is something I would LOVE to do. This is the unique items tag… Well not so much unique, but not something everyone will have in their room/home. You name five unique items in your room/home that not many people would have. They can be anything from a signed album by your favourite band, a limited edition frame, something from a different part of the world that not many Brits would own. You get the picture.

I love having unique and different things that I know not many would have and since being with my boyfriend, my collection of uniqueness has grown!

I really enjoyed walking around my room and picking things up to talk about. I do hope you enjoy this tag!

  • Nendoroid Penguindrum Princess of the Crystal.

This was one of my birthday presents this year from my boyfriend and one of the best I received. I’ve wanted a Nendoroid for years and this is my first one! These aren’t exactly in every home in the UK, considering they’re pretty nerdy and look like children’s toys. Yes, they are toys but if you ask me they’re for adults. These are made and sold in Japan and whilst they state on the boxes that they aren’t meant to be sold outside of Japan, they are all the time. I watched Penguindrum when me and my boyfriend first started talking so I have fond memories of the anime due to this. But onto the doll. I love this doll so much, she’s just so pretty! With her red hair and pink eyes she’s just adorable and she even comes with the three penguins that the three main characters have. So cute! This doll is pretty rare for quite a few reasons. One being that the anime isn’t actually that popular in the UK, but alongside that this doll was made and sold in 2012, three years ago! Plus this isn’t opened and to be honest I don’t intend to open it. I don’t care, I want her to stay special and rare.

  • Sooty clock.

This is probably one of the oldest things I own and I’ve owned it since I was 3 or 4. I remember the day my mom ordered it for me from the official Sooty magazine and she asked me which colour I would like. I still own it over 20 years later and I love it. It’s still in working order and the image of Sooty always makes me smile and reminds me of my childhood. I’ll definitely take this clock with me when I move out, I just love it too much to leave it behind. I doubt many 25 year old’s have Sooty clock’s in their rooms eh? ;)

  • Skribble This artwork.

This is a chibi version of me that was drawn by Skribble This. She was at Comic Con in Birmingham in November and me and my boyfriend loved her artwork that much we wanted some artwork done by her. I love the picture of me so much and it always makes me smile. It’s just so cute and definitely makes me look better than I actually am. She really did draw me how I wanted her to as well. I know in the future I want a massive piece of artwork drawn by her, but that won’t be until I move out.

  • Pokemon Valentine’s Day tin.

I love Pokemon, as regular readers will know so it was super cute when my boyfriend bought me this tin for Valentine’s Day this year. It came with loads of little chocolate cornflake bites inside and damn they were yummy! The tin itself is covered in male and female Pokemon and the cutest couple on the tin are definitely the Pikachu’s. They just make me happy when I look at the tin itself. I don’t know what I’ll be using it for, maybe some Yankee Candle wax tarts, or even something else. Either way it’s just so cute and would look lovely on a shelf. This came straight from the Pokemon Center in Japan (well my boyfriend bought it from a seller in the UK, but you know what I mean). So it has a little bit more of a special place in my bedroom than some of my pieces.

  • Totoro plushie.

I thought I would save the best for last and that’s my Totoro plushie. My boyfriend bought me this for Christmas, as he knows how much I love the anime film and also how much I wanted one of these plushies. Way before we even met I’ve always wanted one so when I opened this and it was THIS big I was over the moon. It’s a really hard plushie and you can give him a good squish when you really need one. I like to cuddle him whilst I read or play games as he’s just really comfortable. We have looked over whether or not this is official and we do have a feeling it is, but either way I still love it all the same. I would love the little white and blue Totoro’s to add alongside this one. Hopefully in the future!

So those are my 5 unique items. So who do I tag? EVERYONE! Give this tag a go, it’ll definitely make you think.

Do you own any of these items, or at least ones similar? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and I hope all my readers are well.

Wednesday Wish List – New Look

25 Mar

It’s not officially spring and what are you meant to do during this season? Spring cleaning! The first time in God knows how long, I actually did a little bit of spring cleaning. I started on my wardrobe and I found so many pieces of clothing that I hadn’t worn in years and wouldn’t wear again, as well as pieces that I have missed wearing.

As well as that, with the weather getting a little better I’ve started wanting to wear dresses and skirts more than my jeans and Victoria Secret pants. However when I did try some on last week I felt like I shouldn’t have bothered, as so many of my dresses either didn’t fit right, were too big in some places and small in others, or just looked horrible.

It did make me feel like shit to be honest and I think you need new clothes when you try on multiple pieces of clothing and hate them all.

So I think it’s time to sort my wardrobe out, there’s nothing worse than wearing the same clothes day after day and week after week. I’m meant to be saving at the moment but the odd piece of new clothing every now and then won’t hurt.

So I had a huge mooch around New Look’s website to see what I could get nice for spring, as well as summer.

  • Rust Stripe Print Crop Top – £7.99.

I was having a nose on New Look’s website and what trends were out for S/S 15, and this was one of the main ones for the 70’s trend. This would look lovely with some high-waisted mom jeans, as well as a high-waisted skirt or shorts. Of course I’d pair these up with my Star Wars Vans or my Chelsea boots. I won’t lie when I say I don’t have the best stomach in the world and I don’t have the confidence to wear cropped clothing because of it. BUT I want to start trying to be comfortable with my body and I think daring to wear things like this will make me better. If I really don’t feel confident one day I could always pop a vest or long-sleeved thermal t-shirt underneath. Plus at £7.99, this is a really good price! It’s dead set on the 70’s trend that is out for spring and summer this year.

  • Black Open Shoulder Swing Dress – £14.99.

I’m after some new dresses but not just ones I can wear in spring and summer. I’d like some I can wear all year around. I’ve been after an open shoulder dress for years and they’re never that nice to be honest. However I do really like the look of this one. It’s simple and black, a colour you can wear all year around and accessories with pops of colour. I also like how it’s a swing dress as I find with this style of dress it hides my tummy, which on days where I’m not feeling so great *cough* bloated *cough* it means I can cover up my belly and still look nice. I could dress this up with all sorts of things. My fake leather jacket, some flats or maybe even boots. It would be nice to wear during the summer without tights on a night out, or maybe even some patterned or coloured tights.

  • Green Check Contrast Chiffon Sleeve Collared Dress -£22.99.

This is probably the biggest thing I would like off of this wish list and something I may even have a look for and buy before the end of the week. It’s a gorgeous green checkered dress with sheer cream sleeves, perfect for any season! It looks very straight cut though and due to being curvy I don’t think this will look that great on me when it comes to trying it on. I also really like the collar on this dress, as that is something I have always been a sucker for when it comes down to dresses with them on. On the model this looks quite short, so I’m hoping it wouldn’t be the same issue with me. I’d team this up again with my fake leather jacket, as well as with some boots and flats. In the summer this would look great with a chunky pair of sandals for a grunge look!

  • Black Contrast Collar Skater Dress – £19.99.

This dress is gorgeous! It’s the perfect shape for my body and it looks beautiful with the white-collar. I love skater dresses, they just compliment my figure and in turn make me look and feel good. This is in black, which of course will work with everything and anything like the black swing dress too. This looks really short on the model and when I was showing these pieces to my boyfriend he commented on the same issue too. Like the swing dress too, I’d team this up with some patterned or coloured tights, as well as my boots or flats. I have two dresses similar to this one, but due to them both being from cheaper high street stores, they’re starting to see their last days now. So this would be a perfect replacement for both of them.

  • Blue High Waisted Ripped Skinny Jeans – £24.99.

I would love a pair of high-waisted jeans and for a while I wanted a pair of mom jeans, but I don’t even think these are in style and being sold anymore. These are also ripped at the knee, another look I’ve always wanted but never really bothered to pick up. New Look jeans are pretty good and if I did want to plan an outfit I would try the crop top alongside these, as they’d look great teamed up with a jacket or cardigan, as well as my Star Wars Vans. I would like some new jeans, especially ones I can style up as a majority of my jeans are very “skater” looking and what you would team up with skate shoes and not really much else.

  • Wide Fit Black Patent Studded Side Loafers – £17.99.

I really need some new flats and I haven’t been able to find anything that I really like. I’ve owned my current pair since 2012 so I’m in need for a new pair as soon as possible. I searched for “studded” in New Look’s search bar and when these came up in the results, I was pretty happy about it. They’re studded loafers and look really comfortable and nice. My shoe size changes when it comes to flats and I often go down a size so I would need to go in store and try these on. They are on the expensive size, but I don’t mind paying this much for shoes if they’re going to be a good fit and feel good too.

So that was my wish list from New Look.

I really want to start doing a wish list Wednesday’s post. Would my readers like this? If so let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all!

Spring Tag!

20 Mar

Image taken from weheartit.com

I love spring, it means the weather is beginning to get warmer and lighter nights are just around the corner. Since getting back from my holiday I’ve been lusting after warmer weather and not needing to layer up and wear my parka. I just want to wear my pleather jacket again, as well as my dresses and playsuits.

It’s officially spring today! So what better way to start off spring 2015 on my blog, than a spring tag!

1. Favorite spring nail polish?
I like my cream and pastel shades for spring, and I’ll definitely be wearing my Models Own Speckled polishes (post about them here). They remind me of Mini Eggs, which I love. As well as that I’ll probably be wearing my Illamasqua Raindrops (review here) polish as I love that shade for spring too.

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring?
I’m swaying towards pinks this spring, mostly nude pinks as I’ve recently got into wearing this shade and I really like it. As well as that I always like to rock a hot pink shade too. You can’t go wrong with pink! One I’ll probably wear a lot is Miley Cyrus’ Viva Glam lipstick (review here).

3. Show us your favorite spring dress!
I have so many favourites! I love my Dr. Martens dress (lookbook here), as well as my Miss Selfridge playsuit which I wore on holiday and will continue to wear in the spring and summer in the UK. Here are some pictures of both dresses…

4. What’s your favorite flower?
I don’t reallllly like flowers to be honest and I put this down to having hayfever… But if I had to choose one it would probably be sunflowers and lilies.

5. Favorite spring scarf/accessory?
Favourite spring scarf is definitely my white skull one that I bought three years ago (wow time flies!). It’s light and perfect to wear with dresses in the spring and summer.

6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)
I am really liking the look of the 70’s trend, as I find the style that was out then was pretty nice and looked lovely. When it comes to make up and hair, I don’t really bother with those trends as I just wear my hair how I want to, and same with my lipstick too. Clothes wise, I am in desperate need of a make over! So I may go down the 70’s route!

7. Favorite spring candle?
I’ll burn anything throughout the year, but I think out of all my Yankee Candles the candles I’ll be burning most throughout spring will be Sweet Strawberry and Sweet Apple (post about them both here). They’re perfect for spring and smell delicious too. They’re simple too which is great for spring.

8. Favorite body spray/perfume for spring?
Ooo this is a tough one as I have so many I like to wear throughout the year. I think a few that I really like are Paul Smith Rose, DKNY MYNY, Marc Jacobs Oh Lola, Gucci Envy Me, and Lancome Miracle. They’re all light and floral and citrus scents which work lovely for spring.

9. What is spring like where you live?
Erm… It depends I suppose but usually wet! It rains a lot in the UK as it is, but it seems to rain more during spring than any other month. The thing I like about spring in the UK is how great it is to go into the countryside and awe over all the baby animals, as well as take in the sights. I especially love seeing cherry blossom trees.

Image taken from weheartit.com

10. What’s your favorite thing about spring?
Baby animals and cherry blossom trees for sure! They just both make me happy, especially when it comes to photography too. I also like how lighter nights come around and you can go out in the evenings with friends, family, partner, etc and just enjoy yourselves for longer. It’s also nice how it gets a little warmer out too.

11. Are you a spring cleaner?
Sometimes, not like hardcore but I would like to do a lot of spring cleaning this year. I’ve done a little already with my clothes, but I need to do some more. There’s probably loads of junk I could chuck away out of my room!

12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?
We don’t have spring break in the UK, but we do get Easter break. I’m not at uni during this time for two weeks and throughout that time I’ll be working, as well as doing my uni work. I may also use it to do my spring cleaning and have a bit of me and blog time. I won’t have any holiday’s coming up, but I would love to go out for a day somewhere nice for my boyfriends birthday, which is just after the Easter holiday’s.

So that was the Spring Tag! I really enjoyed doing it, and I hope my readers have enjoyed reading it.

Who do I tag? EVERYONE! If you take part in this tag, please link me back to said post via a comment so I can come and read it.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you all have a good weekend.

These Boots are Righteous, not Wrongteous!

14 Mar

So as I was explaining last weekend (post here), I was going to be getting my hands on the Jake Dr. Martens x Adventure Time boots and of course, I got them.

First of all i want to say how image heavy this post is going to be! I wanted to make sure to get as many pictures taken as possible to show the boots off the best I could.

I want to just explain here again how these are infact an early present from my boyfriend for completing/passing my masters at university. However, as this isn’t due until September, I have six months to wait until I can officially have these! So whilst they were at my house, before heading to his and being locked away, I thought I would write a quick post about them and show them off.

These came out on Monday 2nd and not even a week into their release and all three styles of the boots were sold out online, as well as in most stores. I was gob smacked! I was beginning to panic I wouldn’t get my own pair, however after calling the Birmingham Dr. Martens store and reserving a pair to try on and buy, I was relieved.

I just want to say, the guy who I spoke to on the phone was extremely helpful and was sad I wasn’t able to thank him on Saturday when I picked them up. So, thanks Phil you were extremely helpful and made a Dr. Martens and Adventure Time fan very happy.

I just want to talk a little about the boots before I show them off.

They were unisex boots, but that isn’t an issue, I find anyway. They’re not patent, but normal leather and because of it are incredibly soft. This will make them easier to “break in”, which is something I have found issues with my patent leather Dr. Martens, even though I bought them second-hand!

The guy who served us (my boyfriend was with me) was telling us how the collection has been in such high demand that stores have been calling each other asking for stock as they’d sold out of certain sizes, if not all in some stores. In fact, my boots were so in demand that I had a “queue” of four people after me waiting to try them on, that was if I didn’t buy them of course.

I’m really surprised that the collection has sold out so quickly. I knew it was going to sell out, don’t get me wrong but I didn’t imagine that in the first week of being on the selves it would be pretty much gone. This is great for Dr. Martens and if they don’t decide to bring out some more styles, then they’re being daft!

Another thing I want to mention is my concern that when I got to the store to try these on, I wouldn’t like them. Don’t get me wrong, they look amazing, but just because something looks good on the picture, doesn’t mean they’ll look good on you. I’ve always had this in mind when it comes to clothes and shoes, that’s just me. My boyfriend also shared this concern but we were both pleasantly surprised when I tried them on and they looked perfect. The yellow shade of the Jake boots seems like it might be in your face, but it isn’t at all. It’s quite a nice creamy yellow, which works perfectly.

Something I think is amazing about Dr. Martens is that they do student discount, as you wouldn’t imagine such a “high up” fashion store would. Because of this my boyfriend saved £13.00 on these boots, causing them to cost £117.00 instead of £130.00.

Any flaws I need to get off my chest before I talk about all the good things? Yes, actually. I have quite a few flaws.

One I want to get off of my chest is that whilst I think it looks awesome and gives the boot a bit more of personality, the strap across the top bugs me a tad. When I wear my Docs usually, I like them to have an eyelet or two open at the top so that they can slouch a little and have a more “comfortable” look to them, but sadly you can’t do that with these. But this being said, they do look quirky and different, so it isn’t necessarily a flaw… Just me being a fussy cow!

Another problem I had, was the price. Yes, I know I didn’t pay for these, BUT I wanted to buy my boyfriend a pair for his birthday next month and alas, I can’t. They’re far too expensive (unless I take out a loan, ha!) and I don’t think he would want me to spend so much on boots, even though he has on me. It isn’t just the adults boots that are expensive either, at £80 a pair, the children’s boots are shockingly expensive! But, that’s Dr. Martens for you. You do get amazingly quality for the money and I’ve paid lots for my triumphs in the past and they’re still holding up and are some of the most comfortable shoes I own.

So, onto what these babies look like!

As you can see they’re a gorgeous cream yellow and have some detailing on them, mostly in black.

You also have a pair of straps on each boot, which are meant to be Jake’s hands/fists, a very unique touch! On the outside of each boot you have a drawing of Jake’s arm so when the strap is across the boot, it looks like his hand is attached to the arm. Pretty cool huh?

On the front of each boot you have a different picture of Jake, on the left boot you have him sticking out his tongue, and on the right boot you have him smiling. Very simple, yet incredibly cute. As well as that, on each boot beside these faces, there are cute little ears.

These also come with two different coloured laces, one black (as you can see) and a pack of yellow. I’ll probably stick with wearing the black ones, as I find they’ll work better. As Dr. Martens sell so many different coloured laces, I could always try a different colour in the future if I do so wish

To wear these are pretty damn comfortable and in comparison to my patent leather docs, they’re a shit load better! They feel like they will dig in a little at the back when I first wear them out and about, but that is to be expected. With some thick long socks and plenty of plasters, I’ll be okay!

It looks like Dr. Martens really went all out to make sure this collection was perfect and I think they did an amazing job! To have seen these back in May/June whilst they were in the factory and to finally see them now in my own room, waiting to be worn, I’m actually glad they turned out perfectly.

To be honest these boots just remind me of when I tried for an apprenticeship at Dr. Martens and how gutted I was not to have gotten myself a place. I could try again, but would there be any point? No, because I know that isn’t the way I need to go.

I think my Jake boots will always remind me to be a kid at heart and have fun, no matter how serious things may seem to be.

What do I stand for?

I stand for being unique and not letting anyone tell you you aren’t stylish, pretty, skinny, or fat enough to be fashionable. Fashion is what you make of it, not the other way around.

I also stand for doing what makes you happy, with the people who make you happy.

So, those are my Jake Dr. Martens and I won’t be allowed them until September. They’re now back in their box, and will be kept safe and ready for when I finish my MA.

I can’t wait to have these ready for autumn and winter this year, they’ll go perfectly with all sorts when the chilly weather is back.

Do you like the Dr. Martens x Adventure Time collection? If so, which pair do you like best? If you don’t like it however, why not? Hell, have you even bought anything from the collection yet? If so let me know which boots you’ve bought!

Until next time, take care all.

It’s Official, 100 Followers!

11 Mar

There it is, the proof of 100 followers. Am I happy? Of course! But at the same time, I’m not but, hear me out.

This is a huge milestone for me and whilst 100 followers may come “easy” to a lot of bloggers out there, this has taken me three years to achieve, that’s a long time! A problem I have noticed with my followers on here is that they’re up and down all the time and I never know if I’m going to be on 90 followers one week or not. Plus the way Bloglovin’ works with followers confuses me, as whilst it states 100 here, it states 105 over on my account. So, who knows!

I am worried that this number will change tomorrow, or at least by this time next week to be back to the late 90’s, which will suck but there’s nothing I can do about that.

A big thing I have wanted to do is a 100 followers giveaway, but to be honest I can’t even afford to buy my boyfriends birthday presents right now, let alone buy a MAC lipstick or anything else, so sadly a giveaway will have to wait.

This sucks as I honestly wanted to do one, but money is short and I need all the cash I can get.

But watch this space, I may be able to do a giveaway in the future and when I can it’ll be a great one! :D

But I just want to say thank you to all my followers so far for making me happy and feel like my blog is actually being enjoyed, as whilst I write on my blog for myself mainly, I of course do it for my readers too.

You’re all so lovely and leave me amazing comments, that I couldn’t ask for a better group of followers.

I hope you’re all having a good Wednesday and I’ll see towards the end of the week with an exciting post. ^_^

Until next time, take care all.

Dr. Martens x Adventure Time

7 Mar

Image taken from weheartit.com

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock the past couple of weeks, then you probably know about Dr. Martens teaming up with Cartoon Network to bring us a very exciting collection for Adventure Time!

I knew about this collection coming out nearly a year ago. How? I tried for an apprenticeship at Dr. Martens in Nottingham, which I sadly didn’t get. On the day where I had my practical assessments and interview I saw the Adventure Time boots in there and of course I had to ask about them. They told me they would be coming out soon and when a few months later I asked in the Birmingham store about them, that’s when I found out they would be out for S/S 15.

The designs that they had when I eyed them up were the three pairs that have come out, which are Jake, Finn and a pair with loads of prints of Jake and Finn. However there was also two other pairs that haven’t come out with this collection, which were Marceline and Gunter. I can imagine these will be out A/W 15 or S/S 16.

If you haven’t seen these beauties yet, then I’m going to show you!

The promotional video for this is amazing and I like how they’ve incorporated their #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign with Finn and Jake.

Not only are these out for adults, but they’re out for kids too which aren’t cheap at £80 a pair! This being said the children’s pairs are super cute and I wish I could buy a pair to later on in life dress my own kid in.

These are unisex boots so come in sizes 3-13 in UK sizes, and this includes half sizes for 6 and 9 too.

So you can imagine my excitement when Dr. Martens officially came out with their news about the boots coming out. This being said, I’m on a spending ban and £130 is now a lot to me as I don’t earn much since cutting my hours down for uni.

I knew from seeing them at Dr. Martens in Nottingham all those months ago that I wanted either the Jake or Marceline pair. So I’ve always had my eye on them.

This collection officially went on sale on Monday and already the Jake pair have sold out, which hardly surprises me. The only pairs left are the Finn and Finn & Jake boot. I’m sure these will be available this time next week.

Image taken from drmartens.co.uk

You can imagine how gutted I was when I saw the Jake boot has sold out, as these are said to have been made in limited numbers, so people who are still after these boots might not even get a pair now…

So I was double gutted, one because I couldn’t afford the boots in the first place and now the pair I want is sold out. Knowing how upset I was my boyfriend kindly offered to buy me the Jake pair as a “congratulations on finishing uni” present, which I course I won’t be allowed to have until September… Which I can deal with! At least I would have a pair!

So at this moment in time, we should now have them! I rang the Dr. Martens store in Birmingham and asked if they had any pairs in my size left and luckily they have ONE LEFT! They kindly reserved them for me for when I pop in today and I couldn’t help but be super excited for today so that I can finally get my hands on this pair.

Seeing as I’m not allowed them until September, I don’t know if I’ll be writing a post about these before then… I’m hoping I’ll be allowed to but my boyfriend has been really strict on when I can have these, and I can understand why. They’re an early present, but not early enough I can have them now! Damn!

Image taken from drmartens.co.uk

Either way I haven’t been so excited for a collection in a long time and Dr. Martens pulled a good move bringing this collection out.

One thing I would say about this collection is that IF you want a pair, get down to your local store soon or order online (if you can of course) as soon as possible as these are going fast.

I do have a feeling they’ll bring out another soon, as I said before. In said collection I would love to see some Lumpy Space Princess boots! It would be cool to see some Fiona boots too, but I can’t see this happening.

What do you think of the Adventure Time collection? Do you love it, do you hate it? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all!

March Wish List

4 Mar

Afternoon all, I hope you’re well! I’m here again with one of my favourite posts, my monthly wish list. I really enjoy sharing with my readers what I’m lusting after each month, even if I’m poor and need to save money! Since Valentine’s Day I’ve been on a spending ban as I need to save money to try and move out, as well as bills and such but the odd treat may not hurt, especially if they don’t cost a lot of money. I shall see…

There are quite a few items from Etsy in this wish list and I do apologise for this, but I have been loving Etsy lately!

  • Etsy Eeveelution Zip Bag.

I have been looking on Etsy lately for Eeveelution related items, as Pokemon don’t sell much of this over in the UK so it can be really hard to find and if you do, it can then turn out to be pretty expensive, which sucks! Etsy isn’t exactly cheap due to how expensive delivery can be from over the pond, BUT the stuff you can find can be beautiful. This zip bag being a great example. I mean LOOK how cute the Eeveelution’s are on it? I would definitely use this for when I have a long day at university and want to keep loads of little bits and pieces with me, such as sanitary towels (for time of the month!), make up, perfume, pens, etc. If this was big enough I’d even think about using it on a night out to give me a quirky look.

  • Yankee Candle Large Jar in Celebrate.

Easter is looming and with that all the shops bring out their limited edition products and chocolates, and this includes Yankee Candle. I’d heard about this candle coming out and it sounds delicious! It’s meant to smell like a lemon cake, which I personally love and have owned candles in the past with this same scent. This is selling out everywhere and I’m really not surprised to be honest. I haven’t yet been able to give this a smell, but when I do I can see me falling in love and wanting to buy. I don’t really need anymore Yankee Candle jars as I have loads at the moment, but I want to make sure I pick this up whilst it’s out to buy. I don’t actually think this is limited edition but I do feel like it won’t be around long. Yankee Candle would be silly to take this away mind as it sounds lush!

  • Esty Eevee iPhone 5 Customised Case.

I love my iPhone and when I got it over a year ago the one thing I was excited about the most was all the amazing cases I could put on it. Since then I have owned various lovely cases (mostly fox themed!) and like most people, I always crave more. I love Pokemon and have been after a Pokemon themed case for a while, but the official ones are hella expensive! My friend Gabriella (hey hun!) has been recommending Etsy to me for ages now so I ventured there for a mooch of some cheap and customised Pokemon related items and this is one I have found. You can get all sorts of customised cases on Etsy but the one that got my attention was the Eeveelution ones and the Eevee one stood out the most. It’s so cute and imagine using this whilst out and about? The  only thing I don’t like about it however, is the price. At over £20 including delivery it is shocking… But I’ll probably has this as a treat in the future.

  • eBay Galaxy Skirt.

I love Black Milk, however I don’t like their price tags and whilst I own one piece of Black Milk clothing, I got it for a bargain! These bargains aren’t easy to come by however and I’ve began to think about buying some similar knock offs. Oh naughty me! I’m not rich like some people so… Anyway… I love galaxy print and I always have, so when it came out everywhere I should have been happy, but I was actually annoyed. Now that phase has died down I’m getting back into it again. I would love some purple galaxy leggings or a skirt and this skirt is ideally the sort of thing I would like, especially with spring and summer looming. This won’t break the bank and will look gorgeous dressed up with black tights, a black or even navy t-shirt tucked in and some boots. I don’t mind paying less than a tenner to be honest, it’s better than over £50 for a Black Milk one.

  • Etsy Eeveelution’s Phone Charm.

Like I’ve already said about my iPhone, I love it. I’m pleased to finally have a phone that won’t just do good things, but can look good too! Recently places have created and brought out phone charms that you pop into your phones ear jack. They’ve been out since the iPhone 4s came out and have continued. I’ve bought one in the past and it really did give a personal and unique feel to my phone. When I found these cute Eeveelution’s ones on Etsy I know I wanted one. You can actually pick these up at a decent price from the official Pokemon Center but I really like the look of these customised ones as they give a lovely personal touch. I would get the Sylveon one myself as it just looks so cute.

  • Sugarhill Boutique  Curious Fox Jumper.

I’ve been eying this jumper up for months now but never bought it as it was too much money for £45.00 in my opinion. However now the sales are on it’s only £25.00, which is a bit more acceptable for me. This comes in grey and black, but I think the black looks better, and plus it’s the only one left out of the two. This would look gorgeous with all sorts, especially jeans and a skirt. I would wear this loads for uni as it looks so comfortable and snug. I don’t think this is even selling in my size anymore, but I shall keep my eye on it.

There is another item on my favourites, but this will be mentioned in a separate post on Saturday, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for this as it’s a very exciting thing I will be talking about! All I shall give away about it is that it’s footwear and Adventure Time… Keep tuned!

What’s on your wish list this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

I hope everyone’s week is going well, as well as March so far.

Until next time, take care all.
