Wish List Wednesday – Pin Badges

I haven’t written a wish list Wednesday for quite a while now, or at least I don’t recall… Actually it’s only been over a month. Jeez am I getting that old I forget so quickly? 😛 So I thought why not do one now! I seem to have grown a new love of pin badges lately and I actually don’t know why. I used to love them growing up and would collect them as and when I could, but sadly that little hobby died although I do still own all the pin badges I collected back in the day.

So thanks to beauty bloggers Instagram pages I have now formed a new hobby, pin badge collecting. They’re mostly all geeky ones too and especially Pokemon themed. So why not make a wish list post about what pin badges I want to have in my new collection and shape my new hobby!

  • PinPalzUK – Sailor Mew Pin -£5.00 (link)
  • SpaceCadetCollective – “Blottertung” Lickitung Pin – £9.94 (link) and “Kantodex” V Pin -$23.00 (link)
  • ReallyBigDill – Togepi Surprise Pin – £8.90 (link)
  • TheSundayCo – Pokeball Deathstar Pin – £5.72 (link) and Hey Gurl Pin – £5.72 (link)
  • CosmeticMermaidPins – Free to Good Trainer Pokemon Pin – £11.45 (link)
  • AgainstMarj – Cubone Pin – £8.29 (link)
  • SourAttitudeClub – 8bit Eevee Pin – £8.70 (link), 8bit Surfing Glitterchu Pin – £8.70 (link) and 8bit Ditto Pin – £8.70 (link)

I know I usually write about each item, on wish list posts but I really don’t feel the need to on this one. All of the pins are Pokemon related bar one which is Adventure Time. My favourite pin badge out of the bunch is the Kantodex pin by SpaceCadetCollective. It opens up and is glittery, what isn’t to love? I’d stick it on my bag or on one of my jackets.

Do you like pin badges? If so which ones do you own or are lusting after? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend.

MCM Comic Con – Birmingham

On Saturday me and Dane went to the Birmingham Comic Con and it was one of my favourite ones to date! Maybe not over Hyper Japan for obvious reasons… 😛

It was pretty much a last minute decision to go after umming and ahhing for a couple of weeks and due to this we weren’t able to grab priority tickets like we did back at the 2014 Comic Con. This being said it turned out well as we booked our parking in advance so we didn’t have to pay after etc etc. We got there an hour early and had to wait what felt like 10 minutes to be let into the convention. Then we had 6 hours of browsing around the stalls, doing some shopping, admiring all the amazing cosplayers and have a good time.

Before I go onto what amazing cosplayers I met and had pictures with throughout the day I want to show off what I wore as I loved it so damn much and got loads of compliments on it!

A few weeks prior to Comic Con I did my weekly eBay search of Black Milk Clothing bargains and came across this Adventure Time dress. These came out YEARS ago and are now museum pieces, meaning they aren’t coming back unless Black Milk decide to release a limited amount. I wanted this dress back when it first came out but due to money and such I didn’t get it. What probably would have cost near to $100 AUS dollars I go for £35. What a bargain! Of course the pattern as you can see is Lumpy Space Princess who I adore!

It’s a skater dress so it flares out a little which I find to be the best style for my figure. The material is lovely and think meaning if it needs to stretch a little the pattern on it won’t get ruined. I teamed it up with a long white t-shirt as I knew it would be too cold outside to wear it without anything underneath. All about the layering in the winter time! I also teamed it with black tights (which I wish had been thicker!), my triumph Dr Martens boots, my new red coat from M&S and a navy choker.

So when we were ready to go we set off to Comic Con!

This was one of my favourite comic cons I’ve attended to date for one reason, all the amazing pictures I managed to get with cosplayers! I’ll be talking about who I saw in the order I saw them!

The first cosplay we spotted was this amazing Totoro from Studio Ghibli My Neighbour Totoro, which is one of mine and Dane’s favourite movies. I never usually have pictures with anyone at conventions as I often feel too shy or they walk off and I never get chance to have a picture at all. However I shoved my way in the best I could and got my picture.

The next cosplayer we saw was another Studio Ghibli related one, which is from my favourite movie, Spirited Away. This person was dressed as No Face and was definitely one of the best cosplayers I saw all day! I’ve never really seen anyone dress as No Face before so I was so excited to see him. Again like Totoro I waited for my turn to have a picture and got it. By this point I was like a little kid, I was so happy!

This next cosplayer felt kind of official due to where you had to stand to have a picture and although there wasn’t an official queue, it did feel like you were queuing to have your picture with him. Of course it’s Deadpool and oh my God he was a legend! Of course it would have been better if it was Ryan Reynolds, but hey it was a guy dressed as Deadpool, a proper costume too not a shitty morphe suit! No offense to anyone who wears/wore a Deadpool morphe suit… 😛

When I went over to him I didn’t expect him to talk, but he did! He say hello, asked if I was okay and even complimented me on my dress and said, “Purple really suits you!” WHAT A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING!

Ahem… Anyway! He got me to put my hand in a backwards C shape to form a heart and thus our picture was taken. I loved how chatty he was and how into the role of Deadpool he was. It was amazing and I hope everyone got the chance to get a picture with him who loves Deadpool just as much as I do. OH and he even has his little unicorn. 😛

This cosplayer was one of the hardest to get a picture with and I’m so glad I did to be honest, even though I did feel like a pain in the arse. I was tired, as was Dane and I couldn’t be arsed to push and shove to get a picture BUT by not doing this a lot of people were being rude and barging their way through. One girl in particular was very rude and as I went over to have my picture she barged past me. I ended up calling her something very nasty (begins with a C…) and walked off. Later on however I saw the Totoro again and this time with the cosplayers family who were dressed as Satsuki and Mei and not only did a somewhat get a picture of them all together, but I finally got my picture with Totoro.

After taking some photographs of me by the big MCM Comic Con sign we were just about ready to go home when we saw the last cosplayers we had pictures with and by far the best ones we had pictures with. Dane had wanted to get a picture with a Stormtrooper (or two) all day and we never got the chance to. So we saw them having pictures with some other people and went over to have ours done too. Dane had his picture taken first which he loves, but then it was my turn and it got funny very fast!

They had proper Stormtrooper armour on that also had voice changers inside so they sounded like the ones from the movies. They told me to get down on my knees as I was being arrested and proper went for it! The officer in black wasn’t there beforehand but when he saw how I was having my picture taken he got into the picture without me knowing… Until I saw the picture anyway! I loved the two pictures that me and Dane got with the Stormtroopers and a part of me wants to pop them in a frame at some point so we can remember what an amazing day we had.

Haul wise we bought each other a couple of Christmas presents, as well as some pictures for the house, but in Dane and Natalee tradition we always get at least one picture drawn of us, which is this one. We both love it so much and it’ll go in a frame and put in the house somewhere.

After a long day we came home cooked some dinner and relaxed. We had a lovely time at Comic Con and it was definitely better than the first one we attended together in 2014. My only negative about it this year was how many fake Nendoroid’s were flying around. One stall in particular annoyed me as it just sold nothing but fake items. You could tell they were fake too… I wanted to say something to some guys buying them but I couldn’t, I didn’t want to worry I would be kicked out for being rude or offensive.

Other than that it was amazing and I can’t wait to either attend Comic Con again or even Hyper Japan next year!

Did you go to an MCM Comic Con event this year? If so let me know which one and which cosplayers you saw and loved! You may have even attended Birmingham like I did! If so what did you do there? Make sure to leave all your comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Currently #1

Hello and welcome to my first currently! I love reading these so I thought, “what the hell, it won’t hurt to do my own!” so here it is. I hope you enjoy this, I already can’t wait to do another one!

Watching: Recently I’ve been binge watching Teachers again. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve watching this series, but it’s by far one of my favourites! During my undergraduate study, I watched this religiously whilst writing my dissertation. It was just like watching my friends or family on a home video, or sat in the pub with them. It’s just a very mellow show that you can really get into, and fall in love with the characters.

Playing: Since Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer coming out I haven’t stopped playing it! It’s just so addictive and relaxing to play that after a day at work I like to just come home, snuggle into bed with a hot drink and play this until I need to leave my bed to pee or eat. That sounds grosser than it actually is!

Listening: I’ve been listening to Bloodhound Gang LOADS lately and I don’t even know why! I’ve always loved this band but lately I’ve just fallen in love with them more than ever before. I need to get more of their albums soon. I’ve been on the hunt for some more for the past few weeks, but I’ve not really had much luck on that… Doh! I’ve also been playing No Devotions new and first album Permanence. It’s a very nice album for autumn and a relaxing one at that. It’s nice to listen to on the way to work in the morning.

Eating: I haven’t really eaten anything different lately… If anything I’ve been binging on crisps… Not good! Mostly Quavers, and Marmite Walkers crisps. I love Marmite so much… Actually, if I’ve been loving a food this month, it’s Marmite on toast. Can’t go wrong! I’ve also been drinking quite a bit of Lucozade Pink Lemonade at the moment, mostly due to my pole fitness. It helps me during my classes. As well as that I’ve been drinking lots of Ribena too. Yummy!

Wearing: With me officially finishing uni at the start of September my boyfriend finally gave me my Adventure Time Dr Martens boots (can read about those here) and they’re all I’ve been wearing. It has been tough to be honest as everyone who has ever owned a pair of Dr Martens will know how painful they are to break in and trust me mine are proving painful, especially on my one little toe. Ouch! With a big pair of Dr Martens socks, and plenty of plasters they’re now starting to break a little more. I can’t wait for them to be perfect so I can rock them all autumn and winter!

Wanting: I’m really lusting after some Snow Fairy from Lush at the moment. I’m running low on shower gel so it’s an excuse to buy this gorgeous smelling pink stuff. Alongside that I can’t wait for the 101 Dalmatians Vans to be released so I can pick up a pair in time for my holiday. I’ll rock them alongside my Dr Martens! I also want Christmas to hurry up and arrive, as well as pay day so I can start my Christmas shopping. I’ve eyed up loads of gift ideas for my boyfriend now, and I just need the money for them!

What things are you currently into? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time take care all and I’ll see you soon.

Autumn is Looming…

Image taken from weheartit.com

It’s September, my favourite month of the year, and yet I don’t know why! I think it’s due to years of going back to school, college, and uni, and being able to see a new year as a fresh start to look cool, be confident, do well in my studies, and just sort my life out. Even though I’m no longer in education, I still see September as this fresh start. September means more to me than just that however, it’s also the start of autumn and the best fashion of the year comes about again. Hot drinks out in coffee shops are now no longer an excuse, but a necessity, and soon enough Christmas will catch up to us.

Every blogger and their dog are obsessing and talking about autumn at the moment, and whilst autumn isn’t officially here until the end of the month, it doesn’t hurt to start preparing, and with how the year has been so far it’ll soon fly by!

  • Hot Ribena.

This is something I recently discovered when I went away to the Lake District with my boyfriend and our friends. I drank loads of it before we went home and it was such a perfect comfort drink. Since then I have bought a huge bottle of Ribena light and in the mornings before I head to work I make sure to have a cup to warm me up. Mornings really are getting chilly now, something I had kind of forgotten about.

  • Baggy hoodies.

Preferably a significant others! Since I met him, I’ve had my boyfriends Funeral For A Friend hoodie, it’s one of the nicest hoodies I’ve ever stolen from someone (infact it’s probably the only one!) as it’s so baggy, soft, and comfortable to wear whether you’re going out for the day, popping out to do some errands, or something to wear around the house. As well as that I have my favourite hoodie that I wear, my fox Animal hoodie that I got when I went on holiday in January. I intend to take this hoodie with me again to live in whilst I’m there when it isn’t warm.

  • Relaxing evenings.

With nights getting shorter, evenings in are some of the best, especially before November and December when all the Christmas parties are around. It’s just nice to stay inside, wrap up warm with a hot drink, and watch movies or play games. My relaxed evenings of choice for this autumn are looking to be playing Minecraft with my boyfriend and our friends, reading, watching South Park, and continuing with my novel.

  • Shopping for autumn essentials.

I really need some retail therapy soon, when I’m unsure but after I handed in my dissertation last Wednesday, I had a look around the shops at all the lovely autumn pieces and fashion that is coming out for this year. I gravitated towards a lot of pieces in Primark, and was tempted to buy some bits and pieces, but I left it due to money. I can see me wrapping up in snuggly jumpers, ripped black skinny fit jeans, and of course my new Dr Martens boots.

  • Ankle boots.

If there is a shoe that was designed for a season, it’s the ankle boot for autumn. Whether it has a heel, a platform, or whatever other quirky design they’re perfect for when the weather is getting colder. My boot of choice this autumn will be my Dr Martens, my new ones to be precise. Back in March my boyfriend was kind enough to buy me the limited edition Adventure Time Jake Dr Martens (post about them here!), but with a catch that I wouldn’t be allowed them until I’d finished my masters… Well now I’ve finished I’ll soon be able to wear these bad boys! Probably this weekend to be exact. I’ll probably wear these loads, especially when the weather is icy outside in winter time. With all the burgundy and mustard shades flying around for autumn, these are sure to fit in.

  • Comfort food.

I love food, I’ll admit that. I literally see food and eat it. BUT since starting my diet before July I’ve learnt when to say no to certain foods again… Although recently I have been a tad on the naughty side. But with the weather getting colder again, I can’t help but eat that little more and I especially sway towards carbs… A lot of carbs! My favourite autumn food is definitely macaroni cheese. It’s just so warming and gorgeous on a cold evening in front of the TV or a games console. Pizza is also a good one, but I don’t mean takeaway, I mean a massive one you can cook yourself and share. It saves money too, as well as unnecessary calories. Not only is dinner the time for comfort food, but breakfast can be too. My favourite being pancakes with bacon, something I made for me and my boyfriend over the weekend. He had honey with his as we never had any maple syrup and I had mine dry… Because I like my pancakes savory. Another pancake breakfast I want to make this year is blueberry pancakes, with blueberry syrup. I’m not done talking about food yet! Something else I love to eat during autumn is soup, and lots of it! I make my Chinese chicken and sweetcorn soup most weeks in autumn and winter, but I still want to try and make something else. Sweet potato and chicken soup is one I want to try and make soon… I might give it a go this week, see how I get on!

I can probably think of loads more things to talk about in the run up to autumn, but alas I want to save more for when autumn is actually here!

So, how many of my readers are excited for autumn and this month? Maybe you hate the colder weather and months? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time though, take care all and I hope you all had a great weekend.

These Boots are Righteous, not Wrongteous!

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.

Dr. Martens x Adventure Time

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!

October Wish List

Wow hello October! It’s not officially autumn and thus my favourite time of year! I’ve also officially been at university for two weeks now and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t enjoying it. However due to going to work and to university day after day, one after the other I haven’t really thought about buying myself anything and if I have it has been for university. However with some thought I finally put together this wish list and the majority of it is things I would like for university, as well as things I can benefit and use in my own time too. Surprisingly there aren’t many autumn items here but I’ve been so busy with university to even look at stuff to buy or lust over.

So whilst the list is small, it’s all things I want and well, sorta need.

 

  •  Yankee Candle Ghostly Treats Candle.

I love Yankee Candle’s and I also love Halloween so whenever they’ve brought out their Halloween range I have usually always been rather disappointed, purely for the fact that I’m not a fan of Witches Brew and whilst Candy Corn smells nice, it isn’t something I would buy. HOWEVER this year Yankee Candle have brought out a new scent to join their Halloween collection, Ghostly Treats. Basically it is the same scent as Fireside Treats but in this gorgeous Halloween themed jar. I can see me buying it as soon as I use up all my none Yankee Candles, as from now on the only candles I’ll be buying is Yankee Candles, as well as trying a Flamingo Candle.

  • Fox T-Shirt by Element.

I love shopping in Two Seasons, they have such great skate, surf and snow clothing and I always go and check them out when I’m near one of their stores. They recently gave out a 20% off code to use in store, so my boyfriend and I headed to the Coventry store to check out what we could pick up. Alas nothing really took our fancy and we ended up leaving our discount codes unused. I did see one thing I thought about picking up but I left it, it was a gorgeous clutch bag by Element with the same fox print on the front as this t-shirt, but at £30 I couldn’t justify it. Only a few nights ago did I pop onto Two Seasons website to check out what nice clothing they had out for autumn and winter this year when I stumbled across this t-shirt. I love foxes and I’m especially a sucker for any clothing with foxes on! I can see me picking this up for university, as well as for my holiday in the New Year as it would look amazing with a pair of baggy jeans here, and a pair of denim shorts abroad.

  • Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Lacquer in Breathtaking Apricot.

After writing a post (link here) in September about how much I love the Maybelline Color Elixir’s I decided that I wanted some more shades and I have two in mind from over the pond that I need in my life. One is Vision In Violet and another is this one, Breathtaking Apricot. These are only available from America and as regular readers may know about me is that if I want something, I go to eBay for it and on this occasion I was lucky. For less than £10.00 I can pick up both shades, yes BOTH shades and also from a UK seller, not bad eh? I love these lip lacquers and they’ve actually replaced my MAC lipsticks because they’re so quick to apply, last ages and make my lips feel and look moisturised and gorgeous. These have especially proven great for university as it means I don’t have to worry about my lipstick feathering or fading away and looking weird. I’ve of course had a look at swatches of this shade online and it’s definitely one I have wanted from day one of the Maybelline Color Elixir’s being for the past year, so I can see me picking it up very soon, especially for my holiday in the New Year.

  • Adventure Time Jake’s In Here Hoodie.

I’ve mentioned this hoodie on a wish list post before (link here) and it’s found its place on a wish list again as I just want it that much! I want this for 2 reasons, 1. Because it looks amazing and 2. Because with university I am currently living in one hoodie, so I am in need of another one now! The hoodie is just super cute and it looks really warm and good quality for the money. I’m hoping to pick one up on my week off from university.

  • Yankee Candle Moon Pie Swirls Candles – Set of 2.

Oh how I love QVC, especially when they sell Yankee Candles. Yes another Yankee Candle, but I don’t care it’s autumn and that only means one thing, CANDLES and plenty of them! This is a special edition on for grabs from QVC, especially considering that this candle isn’t available in the UK, only in America, plus the fact QVC are giving them away makes me laugh. For £25.00 you’re getting two medium candles which would usually cost nearly £10 more if you were to buy them separately. The Moon Pie swirl candle is said to be a mixture of both Yankee Candles Whoopie Pie and Buttercream candles, which I can tell you both smell delicious! I know if I were to buy this set then I would keep one and give my boyfriend the other, because I’m a nice girlfriend! 😉

  • Shopaholic To The Stars by Sophie Kinsella.

I LOVE the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella and I have fond memories of university because of it. I started to read it in my first year and went on to finish it just as I left university. It was an enjoyable series and one that I have waiting in anticipation for to continue after the last book, which may I add came out four years ago! I don’t care if they hardback copy costs £9.00, as soon as I spot it in the shops, I’ll be picking it up and starting to read after I finish my current book (An Abundance Of Katherine’s by John Green).

So that was my wish list! My boyfriend suggested that I try and do a university wish list, but considering that I’ve already bought all my stationary and such I wasn’t really able to do such a thing, but with the t-shirt and hoodie I would like to think this is included in what I would like/need for university.

What do you have on your wish list this month? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’ve had a great week.
