February Wish List ’22

Can you believe it’s already February? I can’t to be honest. I’ve been quite excited though for a new month. January wasn’t exactly great for me (as I mentioned in my January favourites here) for various reasons so a new month and a fresh start has been very much needed. I’ve always been an autumn girl but not going to lie, I’m really excited for spring for lighter nights, new baby animals being born and the excitement of Easter chocolate and roasts… Just a shame that’s a couple of months off yet. πŸ˜›

I’m back with another monthly post and of course this is my wish list. If there is one thing I’ve said to myself for 2022, it’s to be better with money, which I really was in January! I didn’t spend much and due to that I came out in February with some decent savings and more. That being said, January payday couldn’t have come quickly enough! Six weeks was long!

I want to state here that this months wish list was a tough one for me as two of the items listed are either ordered or pre-ordered months ago. I felt like I couldn’t come up with any items to add to the list, which is a rarity for me. That being said, all items listed are amazing (to me anyway) and I can’t wait to share them with you!

  • PokΓ©mon Raihan Nendoroid – (link)

This is a pre order I’ve had for a while now (since May 2021, holy shit!) and I’m really excited for it to arrive. As regular readers will know, I collect Nendoroid’s and around ordering Raihan I decided that I finally needed to complete my Pokemon Nendoroid collection, once and for all! This being said I’m still missing three (Cynthia, N and Champion Red) which are some of the hardest to buy unless you’ve won the lottery. Raihan isn’t exactly a character I adore but he’s pretty cool nonetheless so I needed him for my collection. He’s due out in February so I’m looking forward to him arriving. I’m sure I’ll talk a little more about him in one of my monthly posts.

  • Geeky Clean Extinct Airlines Bubblegum & Candyfloss 3 in 1 Soap – (link)

I don’t know what’s happened but I appear to have run out of shower gel! We have the dregs of a bottle of Lush Snow Fairy, as well as a huge bottle of Australia Body Care tea tree body wash. I really want to try more brands for my shower gels and with Geeky Clean being an independent geeky beauty company I’ve tried and loved before, I’m definitely going to treat myself to a bottle of their 3 in 1 soap. This sounds like it’s going to smell like their Bard scent, which is a dupe of Snow Fairy, so hopefully all year round we should have the sickly sweet scent in our bathroom! Not going to lie though, I feel the Β£6.00 to be quite steep, but I’ll give it a go and if it’s not good/not worth the money I just won’t buy it again!

  • Tallulah’s Threads Love Bug Lilac Dress – (link)

This is actually an item I bought on payday a week ago and I have zero regrets! I’ve been eyeing it up for a while now and with how shit January was and a decent discount code to boot, I decided to treat myself! Tallulah’s Threads is a brand I’ve heard of for years now but was never keen previously as smock dresses never used to be my thing. Also, the dresses aren’t exactly cheap and younger me didn’t have much money to spend, unfortunately. I was never keen on the smock style of dress when I was younger as in my mind, (pretty sure everyone thinks this?) it always makes you look bigger than you are due to them being oversized. Back in the day I would have hated that idea, but now I don’t mind a smock dress hiding my body a bit. Plus, I think they’re fucking cute! I own two smock dresses (Disturbia and Fearless Illustration) and I adore them! They’re comfy, perfect for lounging around or hanging out with friends and with a belt around the middle they can be synched in! I also fell in love with the colour and pattern on this dress. It reminds me of spring and if there’s one thing I really want to do, it’s dress cuter! I’m already planning how I can style up this dress and I’m so excited for it!

  • Bravissimo Valentina Bra – (link)

If there’s one thing I am in desperate need of, it’s a new bra. Since Covid I’ve been mostly living in bralettes, which are super comfy and support a little, but the time has come where I need to wear a normal bra at least three days of the week and currently, I only have one… Well two if you take note that I have the same bra twice, because I fell in love and bought a back up… Anyone else own back up bras of their favourites? Anyhoo, when I spotted that Bravissimo were bringing out a Valentine’s Day/heart collection I FELL in love! I’m definitely going to take myself to Bravissimo very soon to try this cutie on and purchase, unless I purchase it online and hope for the best. Either way I need it. I really want the pyjamas that Bravissimo has brought out too, but I don’t need anymore so I’ll be giving those a miss. I keep wanting to order this online, but at the moment I may just hold off until me and Dane take a trip where there’s a Bravissimo store. That being said, I don’t want to wait too long in case I do miss out on it. I’ve done this before with previous bra styles and been gutted afterwards.

  • Pokemon Cafe Gacha Set – (link)

This is something I saw on Instagram last weekend and I’ve fallen in love with the gacha set that resembles the Pokemon Cafe items you can eat and drink! As regular readers will know, in January 2020 me and Dane went to Japan for a two week holiday and of course we ventured to the Pokemon Cafe (which you can read about here). Two of the gacha items in this set we actually drank/ate which has just taken me back to when we visited the Pokemon Cafe. I’d love to own all of these to keep with the gacha we obtained whilst we were in Japan. I need to try and source them all, which is proving a little tricky. 😦

  • Fluffy Cinnamoroll Backpack – (link)

First of all, I have a feeling this backpack isn’t a real Sanrio item… I’m wary of this. However, it’s so damn cute and I’d love to get it! In 2020-2021 I discovered fluffy backpacks (Loungefly Meeko and Loungefly PomPomPurin) and I adore them so much. They’re so comfortable to wear, look and feel lovely and just fit with the kawaii aesthetic I hope to achieve in the future. I know that Loungefly have a Cinnamoroll backpack as well which I didn’t like the look of when it first came out. Since then it’s really grown on me and before Christmas I could have snagged it for a BARGAIN on Vinted, but left it… I’m not gutted though, as I genuinely love this fluffy one more. I’ve found this backpack on Amazon recently for a decent price and went to order, BUT as I’m trying to be better with money I left it for a rainy day. Maybe if I have a shit day or two towards February payday, I could get it then? πŸ˜›

So there we have it guys, my monthly wish list for February!

What items do you guys have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments below.

Until next time guys, take care and have an amazing weekend! πŸ˜€

July Wish List β€˜21

I can’t believe we’re already over a week into July! I also can’t believe Halloween is just around the corner too, as well as Christmas. Not going to lie, I love summer but damn am I excited for autumn in September! I have so many plans this year. πŸ˜›

I feel like July on my blog is turning into a strange month for posts. Nothing has really come out in the pattern/order I wanted it to and this is just purely because June felt like a long month for me and a tiring month at that. A lot of stuff was happening and although I had a week off work, I don’t at all feel rested.

My Twitch streams are keeping me busy too and I have so many ideas swirling around for the future of Twitch and more… I want to “announce” it here (if you will…) and say that I’m hoping to do YouTube in the future. I don’t know when, but I have so many ideas going around my head after a friend of mine planted the seed.

That aside, I’m really excited for this months wish list! Some items are pre-ordered and some I’m really hoping to order… More below of course. πŸ˜›

I hope you guys are having a lovely weekend and if you’re watching the football (I’m not :P) I hope you get the results you hope for. πŸ™‚

  • Pikachu Tonal Chain Wallet by Loungefly – (link)

If there is one thing I kind of lack in, it’s shoulder bags. I only really have one (my fake Samantha Vega Sailor Moon shoulder bag) which is my go to, as well as one of my favourite bags as Dane bought it for me back in 2015 when we went to Hyper Japan. The fact it’s still lasted six years later is great! However, I would like something else to use alongside this and this Pikachu Loungefly bag looks to be the one for me! It’s available from the Pokemon Center USA website, but I’m going to source elsewhere me thinks. It’ll be one to use if I’m just popping round to friends, or going out for food/drinks. Think I might treat myself to it at the end if the month!

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2022 Day-to-Day Calendar – (link)

I found out about this through Twitter and pre-ordered is straight away! As many of you know, I LOVE Animal Crossing (I stream it twice a week on Twitch too :P) so when I saw they were bringing out a little day-to-day desk calendar I was tempted. However, when I found out it have villagers birthdays featured on the day in question, I kind of knew I had to get it for my desk! It’s out at the end of the month and you can pre-order one yourself from Amazon now. πŸ˜€

  • Smoko Pearl Boba Tea Beauty Fridge – (link)

As regular readers will know, I LOVE Smoko and the items they have out, especially the Asian food and potato characters. I’ve been eyeing up the fridge on their website for what feels like years now, so now it’s come to Urban Outfitters in the UK I would really like to pick it up! I very much doubt I will though, but I wanted to show it off to you guys in case you want to get it! πŸ˜€

  • Pokemon Plamo Collection Mew Plastic Model – (link)

This is something that has been on my wish list for quite some time now and I’d still really love it! I think it would be so much fun to get, make a video of me putting together/stream me putting it together. I’ve not seen anyone in the UK selling this, but I have found it on From Japan, as well as Amazon Japan (linked above) so I think as and when I want to make an order from either in the future, I’m going to pick this up. I want to keep this little cutie on my desk next to my Sylveon capchara (can see and read about it here). I think there’s loads of these you can choose from too including Pikachu, Eevee, Gengar, Mewtwo, etc. If you search for “Pokemon Plamo Collection” on Amazon Japan you’ll see them all. πŸ™‚

  • PomPomPurin Bell Charm Netsuke Strap – (link)

This is something I’ve been after for a while and actually found it through a seller on Etsy, but wasn’t 100% sure so left. Now that ARTBOX has it in stock I may order it when payday comes at the end of the month! I’d pop this bell charm on my Loungefly PomPomPurin backpack! I’m planning to show that off on my blog in the future, which will be so cute! πŸ˜€ I do really love ARTBOX, but I’ve never actually made an order with them!

  • The Sad Ghost Club Sad Ghost Plush – (link)

Finally we have a pre-order item that I ordered last week after it released. The owner of SGC decided to bring out a plush of the Sad Ghost and I couldn’t resist! For those who may never have heard, SGC “We’re a small creative project making comic books, apparel and merchandise to spread positive awareness of mental health.” which I adore. It makes me feel less lonely and understood when their posts relate to how I’m doing that day with my anxiety and depression. So, when I saw that they’d brought out a plush of the little cutie, I had to order! This little guy will sit with my plushies in my plush cabinet! If you’re really interested in getting your own Sad Ghost, please make sure to snap him up now because it’s only a limited edition item with one run!

Anyhoo guys, those are my wish list items for July! I’m on a spending ban this month in all honesty due to buying my new car, but I’m going to start spending less now, because I need to. I think I’ll have a few treats a month and then that’s it! πŸ™‚

What items are on your wish lists? Do you like what’s on mine? Let me know your thoughts in the comments down below!

Until next time guys, I hope you’re having a lovely weekend and take care. πŸ™‚

April Wish List β€˜21

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely bank holiday so far. At the time of writing this, I’m really excited for my Easter roast that I’m cooking with Dane as well as our chocolate eggs. I’m also planning to cook some mini egg brownies or cupcakes and send half over to my parents and keep half ourselves. I’m not sure which to bake yet, but brownies are looking to be the choice at the moment. I’d buy some cream too to pour over the top, or maybe some custard? OOFT!

Anyhoo… Enough of yummy food. This months wish list pretty much contains items I’ve bought/pre-ordered or hoping to pre-order VERY soon. I’m still looking to be on a spending ban in April because I’m finding it really handy to keep track of what I’ve bought and when, as well as WHY I’ve bought something.

An example of this being March. At the start of the new spending ban month, Black Milk Clothing had brought out their second Pokemon collection and I know I wanted to pick up a few pieces from it. They’re both limited and wouldn’t be brought back, so I bought them. I think items that are limited edition, or rare items found on eBay are acceptable within reason.

Another example, I found one of my holy grail Loungefly bags and it wasn’t cheap. It was a reasonable price considering, but not cheap. I’d seen a piece from Black Milk Clothing’s latest collection (The Thirteenth Tarot) that I wanted to buy, as well as a piece from the first Pokemon collection in the sale. I haven’t bought these pieces due to buying the bag. Granted, I didn’t need any of these things but… I wanted the bag.

Anyway, I digress! I’m really excited to talk about the items on my wish list this month. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing this months wish list post! πŸ˜€

  • Oyasai Fairy and Manabu Vegetable Knowledge Book by PonkichiM (link)

This is something I didn’t think I’d ever own, even though I really wanted it. PonkichiM is a Japanese artist I discovered well over a year ago now thanks to Twitter and now I’m able to own their art book which is full of their cute vegetable animal hybrids that the artist calls faeries. I told my friend Emily (who I met through Instagram) about PonkichiM a while ago and she fell in love with the artists designs too, which did not surprise me! So, when Emily told me she was going to order the knowledge/art book from Amazon Japan and wondered if I wanted one. I jumped on it and when it arrived at hers I paid her for it. πŸ™‚ Her boyfriend was kind enough to bring it over and post through the letter box and it’s GORGEOUS! I’ll be showing this off in my April favourites later this month for sure. πŸ™‚

  • Loungefly x Sanrio Pompompurin Mini Backpack and Purse

I decided to merge these two items together as I have a STORY to tell in regards! So, I’d pre-ordered both of these items through Geekcore and they were both due to come out in April. However earlier this week I received an email saying that this and a few other designs had been cancelled in the UK due to failing quality control… Which sucked. I’d not exactly had the best day so to hear this news was devastating to me… 😦 I’ve had a full refund and I’ve pre-ordered through an America seller I’ve bought from before. I don’t 100% know when these will be out, but I hope sooner rather than later as I cannot wait for these to arrive. They’re gorgeous fluffy bags and of course feature my favourite Sanrio character, Pompompurin. I do feel I’ve paid far too much now to get him into my life, but I guess it’s… Kind of worth it… :’)

  • Kaymiibo Animal Crossing Sanrio Homemade/Custom Amiibo (link)

I do feel bad buying fake amiibo cards, but at the same time I don’t when Nintendo is pissing their UK fans about. There. I said it. We were all told by Nintendo UK the end of March, but the worldwide release was the 26th March, which we assumed would be the same here. I waited all day to order a pack of cards, as did others, but nothing dropped. I started to come to a realisation that IF the cards had of come out that day, I probably wouldn’t have gotten any anyway, due to the fact SO many people want to get a packet of these cards, as well as scalpers trying to snag them too. So, I decided to buy some of the custom made ones and when the real cards released, I’d get those too. You know what? Nintendo UK decided to release the cards on the last day of March, without much warning and they sold out quickly, with some cancellations and refunds given to people by Nintendo due to overselling. I know they also released some more packs on the 1st April. I missed both drops and was gutted. I have some big plans for my Sanrio cards and items, which I’m so excited about!

  • Pokemon Center Nickit Plush

If there was one Pokemon from Sword and Shield that I fell in love with and called my favourite from that gen, it’s Nickit. The cute little fox Pokemon that specialises in dark moves. I just fell in love and caught one as soon as I could in the game. Sadly it didn’t follow me all the way to the end, but for the start of my journey in Shield, it did me good. I’d waited patiently for a Nickit plush to come to the Pokemon Center and FINALLY it is time! I’ve pre-ordered my plush through YY Kawaii (Instagram – yykawaiimerch1) which I’m excited to have arrive in the upcoming months! Make sure to use code “YYCOFFEE10” to snag 10% off of the website!

  • Nintendo Switch New Pokemon Snap (link)

Finally we have a game I’m SUPER excited to see come out at the end of the month and that is the New Pokemon Snap game coming to Switch! I never got to play the original Pokemon Snap on Nintendo 64 as I never owned one and neither did any of my friends. I always have a fond memory of going to Dixons with my dad and running to the back of the shop to play on the N64 that was set up at the back of the shop withΒ Pokemon SnapΒ inside that you could play. I never got the chance to play it every time I ran to the back of the shop, because there was always a kid, or at least a group of siblings stood there hogging it. So, this coming out will be like a part of my childhood I missed out on. πŸ™‚ Eventually I’ll snag the Pikachu N64 ANDΒ Pokemon Snap so I can play it myself, at home, without the worry of some selfish kids preventing me. πŸ˜›

So there we have it guys, that is my wish list for April and I feel like I’m already skint. πŸ˜›

I’m so excited for April, Easter break so far has been amazing, I’m looking forward to my roast and Easter eggs, as well as Dane’s birthday in a couple of weeks time. πŸ™‚

What do you guys have on your wish lists for April? As well as if plans you may have for April too? Let me know in the comments. πŸ™‚

Until next time all, take care and HAPPY EASTER! πŸ˜€
