November Favourites ’17

It’s December and it’s definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas! This year I even have not one, but two advent calendars and I have work to thank for both of them!

November for me was a mixture of a shit month and an amazing month, the latter outweighing the two. As many of you may have read, I left my old job in retail/hospitality and joined my new job in admin! I’ve just wrapped up my third week and I am still loving it. I just can’t believe how quick those three weeks have gone and I am now well and truly into the Christmas spirit!

This past week though I have been so drained that blogging has sadly taken a back seat. Even my favourites post this month is late being written due to this, so I do apologise for my silence the past week. Blogging will be back on schedule after today, I promise.

For now it is time for me to do the first out of both my monthly posts, the first of course being my favourites!

  • Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel.

As soon as me and Dane got back from our holiday in October, I knew it was time to get the Snow Fairy out of stash of Lush goodies! I always buy in the Boxing Day sales or get gifted a massive bottle of this glorious pink goo every Christmas/Birthday and I always save it for when Christmas is upon us. It just reminds me of Christmas and the closer we get to Christmas, the more excited I get! This scent is just Lush to me. Although not Snow Fairy, The Godmother shared it’s scent with this and that was the first Lush product I ever bought, so that already has a close spot in my heart. I love this shower gel though, but I’m so gutted Lush discontinued the large 1kg bottle this year.

  • Lancome Miracle EDP.

I always forget that I own this perfume, until recently! This is an old perfume to be honest and one that is probably WAY out of date by now. I’ve owned it since Christmas 2012 when my brother bought it for me. It smells so strong and whilst this isn’t a bad thing, it’s definitely changed from what it once was. I decided a week ago that I would use up as many perfumes as possible and just re purchase ones that are my favourites, as well as any new ones I REALLY want. I have way too many perfumes and there’s only one of me. This is a gorgeous and strong EDP though and one that I can only highly recommend for women in their late 20’s and up as it’s a pretty mature scent.

  • L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

This hand cream is amazing and I always forget this. The day I started my new job I decided I would start using this again and my hands are so grateful for it. I don’t really use it throughout my shift, as I use another one but this has been helping my hands in the morning before I leave for work and if my hands are super dry. I still have my massive tube as well, which lasts FOREVER! Best hand cream for sure, always helps my eczema during the cold months.

  • MUA Lip Liner in shade Dark Thistle.

This is a lip liner that I bought to accompany and work with any raspberry pink lipsticks I own and to be honest whilst I LOVE wearing it with those, I especially love wearing it on it’s own with a bit of gloss or lip balm. This is pretty much how I’ve worn it the past couple of weeks and probably how I’ll continue to wear it! These lip liners only cost a £1 and not only do they last ages on their own, as well as with lipsticks but they’re also super comfortable to wear AND even come with their own sharpener. I definitely want to invest in picking up more of these.

  • Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry.

I picked this up for my holiday to Fuerteventura back in September and throughout the whole holiday I used this constantly, only to come home and not use it. I threw it into my handbag the first day of my new job and since then that is where it’s stayed. I use it all the time at work and due to my office being warm this melts a little which makes it so much easier to use than it usually is! You can apply loads of this and it really does keep my lips feeling moisturised and soft. I’ve heard that Carmex have brought out a sugar plum flavour, which I intend to pick up asap!

So now my beauty favourites are done, time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month!

Favourite TV Show – The Sinner.

This is a show that Dane told me about ages ago and had found online for us to watch. I never watched it and neither did he. When we found out it would be on Netflix we jumped at the chance to watch it. We binge watched it in a mere matter of days and the story is amazing! I didn’t know it was based off of a novel until I was searching for the trailer above, but it honestly doesn’t surprise me! It’s a thriller about a woman who murders a man on a beach and no one knows why. You find out more about her past as well as present as the story goes on and it really does keep you on the edge of your seat. If you fancy something to binge watch like this, please watch! I’ve also linked about the main song of the show as it’s amazing and as soon as I finished watching the show I went to find it so I could download it!

Favourite Film – The Boy & The Beast.

I have literally just finished watching this film. For ages now Dane has been trying to get me to watch this and for ages I said, “Nah I don’t want to, I won’t enjoy it.” Well it just goes to show how well Dane really knows me, it would seem more than myself as I loved watching this film. I thought it was going to be full of karate and kung fu style stuff, which is wasn’t. That’s why I thought I wouldn’t like it! It’s by the same people as The Wolf Children, which is one of my favourite anime films, so I shouldn’t have been surprised that I loved this film. This is currently on Amazon Prime Video to watch as subbed.

Favourite Book – Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Vol. 4.

I’VE STARTED READING AGAIN! I took some manga with me to work recently and actually read some, woohoo! It’s nice being able to get back into reading again as I’ve really missed it. It’s especially nice to have my lunch at my desk and read a manga. I have a feeling I’ve got some manga for Christmas this year so I need to make sure I read loads now before then to make sure I have time to read that too. 😛

Favourite Song/Album – Radio Bam.

If there’s one radio show (aside from any Tim Shaw has hosted!) I wish could come back, it’s Radio Bam, even if it came back as a podcast! I always forget how funny and random this show is and not only is the music amazing that Bam Margera plays throughout the shows, but the stories him and his guests (mostly the cKy guys) tell are so damn funny! Well, to me anyway. I’ve downloaded 100 episodes (there are 302 in total) and I’m currently listening to episode 17. The thing that made me think about downloading and listening to these again is the rush hour traffic I get stuck in on my way to work. I love listening to music on the way to work, but if I could listen to an episode of this instead, it would definitely make for an interesting change. I’ve popped up a funny moment above, I will say the show IS OFFENSIVE so this sort of thing won’t be for everyone, it is however for me, so sorry. 😉 The clip above is definitely one of my favourites.

Favourite Game – Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Sims 4.

Oh man this month has been about ALL THE GAMES for me! Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp came out and if you don’t know it by now, I’m a HUGE Animal Crossing fan! I’ve played all the games so when Nintendo announced a phone game, I knew I’d fall in love. When it came out in Australia and I saw my friends in the UK playing it, I was insanely jealous. So when it finally came out recently I downloaded straight away and since then I’ve been addicted.

As well as that I’ve also been addicted to playing Sims 4. Me and Dane played the demo of it on the Xbox One and although we enjoyed playing it, we didn’t like the way it played on the console. During Black Friday we picked it up online for less than £20 and we don’t regret it one bit. We’ve played it loads since and will probably spend most of tomorrow playing it together in bed, as well as on Sunday!

Finally I finished The Fractured But Whole and oh my God what a fucking ending! Although I’m not 100% sure/keen about the game play in the second game, I definitely love the story so much more! You can really see why it was getting delayed for so long, the guys did an amazing job with it and now I can’t wait to play it all over again to try and get all the trophies, like a sad git I am! 😛

So those are my favourites from November! I can’t believe in 30 days we’ll be looking to start a New Year. This year has gone by way too fast, can time just stop for a little? 😛

What were your favourites from November? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time all, take care and I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Birmingham Anime and Gaming Con (Haul Inc.)

 photo Photo 04-10-2016 11 54 45 am_zpsrq44mvun.jpg

On Sunday me and Dane went to the anime and gaming con which was held in Birmingham. The con ran on both the Saturday and the Sunday and although we wanted to attend both days, Sunday stood out to us the most. We’re so glad we only went for the one day though. We had a lot of house stuff to do Saturday and if we had attended both days nothing would have been done. Oh the joys of being an adult and homeowner eh? 😛

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 1 21 32 pm_zps3u3uretz.jpg

The con itself was amazing and everything we imagined it would be like and more, so I thought I would write about it today for you all, as well as share what we bought at the con as well. Sadly I didn’t get any pictures of the con as we were too busy enjoying ourselves. I’m awful at getting pictures at places like this. 😦

As old readers will know me and Dane have been to a couple of conventions now including Birmingham comic con and Hyper Japan and this one was very different to those two. For a start the con as tiny in comparison to both of those, but that wasn’t a bad thing! We liked that it was small as it meant we got chance to really look at what everyone was cosplaying as and even get the chance to talk to people if we wanted to. It also meant that we could look around everywhere without having to queue, there not being enough room to walk around and even the worry of forgetting about looking at anything.

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 11 02 15 am_zpsqsc6d5jk.jpg

We also never bothered dressing up for the con as we’re boring farts and never really bother with anything like that. We could have worn our South Park outfits but meh. I wore my Iron Fist dress with Dane’s plaid jacket, tights and some brothel creepers. I loved my outfit and whilst I was a little self conscious in it, I felt comfortable for the majority of the time. I of course had to wear my Sailor Moon Luna bag that Dane bought me last year at Hyper Japan. I forgot how much I love that bag!

When I mentioned to people at work that I was going to the con I got a lot of questions such as, “Ooo will there be Japanese food there?” and to be honest I wish there was. Sadly there wasn’t any food stalls there but there was food offered by the place it was held at which was good! It was lovely weather on Sunday and it would have been lovely to have an ice cream van outside of the con… But I know that isn’t the organisers fault, problem, etc.

At the event itself there was always something going on which was great. There was the main hall where there were dealers and artists, a stage and a video gaming room. A corridor away there was the activities room and bar where you could go for something to eat and drink, watch anime, chillout, have your photograph taken in your cosplay outfit, play some games (TCGing, board games and RPG) and talks and workshops. Later in the evenings in this room they held karaoke and parties which we wished we had gone to.

We attended a couple of the workshops which were really interesting! The one Dane was most excited for was about the yakuza in Japan and although Dane knows quite a bit about it, I don’t and it was very interesting for me to listen to. The guy who got up to talk about it was great too and went into a lot of detail. The workshop I was excited for was about plushie making, which sadly got cancelled due to the host of it being poorly. There is always next time!

The stalls that were around selling things were good, although a lot of them were selling fake merchandise. As readers will know me and Dane collect Nendoroid figures so we know a fake when we see one! It was sad that we spotted three fakes and then saw that they had all sold. Very sad times.

Speaking of which lets get onto what we bought at the convention! We bought quite a few things most of them being mine to be honest. 😛

We picked up two Nendoroid figures from a seller who was selling legit merchandise. She was reasonable with her prices too! I bought Isabelle from Animal Crossing and Dane picked up One Punch Man. They’renow living in our Dane also bought me a cute little Umaru secret figure box too! I got one of Umaru lying down on her tummy which is so cute.

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 6 05 50 pm_zpsdhpyvlzj.jpg

As well as fakery there were also some legit and lovely sellers at the event. Some who were selling their own work which is what we bought most of at the event. One guy was selling prints to people… A bit too heavily and forceful for us two. He was trying to get us to buy 10 prints for £40. Would have been a good deal if we wanted that many prints! We ended up buying one, this water Pokemon print for our bathroom.

As well as that we got two artists to draw for us, one of which isn’t actually finished yet. The first picture we got drawn was this chibi picture of me and Dane which is from one of our favourite pictures that we took not long after we got together. The artist is also going to draw and colour a digital image of us too, which we’re excited about! Another artist draw a picture of Dane from when he was in his band days. He would dress up in funny costumes whist on stage. This picture is from a costume he wore in Sheffield which of course is of him in a banana. It’s perfect and he loves it!

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 6 05 55 pm_zpsxx8f6swu.jpg

These are probably my favourite buys from the day, which are these two adorable Eeveelution t-shirts by Ohayou! who I’ve been a fan of for a while through Etsy. She does more designs than this which I really want to get. The two I picked up are one of a Sylveon print that says “dragon slayer” (if you don’t get it look it up) and one of an Umbreon looking sad… I couldn’t not take that t-shirt design home! The only thing I don’t like about these is the plastic feel of the print but it’s nothing serious. I’ll be wearing these all the time with some jeans, shorts and skirts. I plan to buy more of their goods in the future, or at least ask for them for Christmas. 😛

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 6 05 43 pm_zpsdmyn74ud.jpg

Alongside those goodies I picked up some little bits and pieces that were dotted around. I picked up some dog and red panda stickers, three Totoro pens, a Romantic Bear peel off lipstick (which I love! I have more of these on the way so I’ll be reviewing them all then), a pack of Eeveelution stickers, an ice verion of Ninetales sticker, a Lady Rainicorn sticker, a picture of Haiku in dragon form, and various badges.

As well as my opinion on the convention I wanted to get Dane to talk about his views.

Well, we had a really good time and were amazed at the incredible cosplay on show, but i think that was the biggest gripe for me. Too much emphasis on the cosplay aspect, not enough for those not so into cosplay to do. The talks were not very well organised and I felt sorry for a lot of the speakers as they had to alter their presentations due to technical errors and last minute changes and fillers. We didn’t watch any anime which is a disappointment as I was expecting a great chill-out atmosphere to watch anime and socialise. What we got was a tiny screen and a couple rows of chairs. To make people want to watch anything at an event you have to make it an improvement to what people may have at home. Personally, I can watch any of the anime shown on a much bigger TV, on a nice comfortable sofa with amazing sound. There was no incentive for us to take part.

I completely understand it is the very first one held in Birmingham so things may not always go to plan and there may not be enough funding to create the best convention ever. For the price we paid it was completely worth it and I can only expect to see it grow. I would like to see it in a bigger space with more artists and shops, more emphasis on gaming and the talks/panels, interesting food options and a more inviting experience for viewing anime.

Overall we loved our day at the convention and it reminded us how much we love going to events like this. It’s made us realise how much we really want to go to Birmingham Comic Con in November so we’ll be booking to go to that very soon!

January/Birthday ’16 Wish List

Is it my birthday in three days… I’ll be turning 26 and this saddens me. I am getting older, and with the years not only do I gain another wrinkle, another grey hair, and a saggier body, but I also gain other things. But we will leave that for another post because I now feel inspired to write it!

Back to this post however… With a new year, and a new month, comes a new wish list! A birthday one with that. I don’t really feel like I want much after Christmas, but I will try my best to try and come up with some things that I would love to receive, or buy for myself with birthday money.

So, list time! I love making these. ^_^

  • Topshop Lady and the Tramp Pyjamas – £28.00 (link)

As soon as I heard about these pyjamas being available to buy I instantly though “NEED IN MY LIFE!”. I love Lady and the Tramp, it’s by far one of my favourite Disney movies, so I’m a complete sucker for these of course. They’re pretty expensive for what they are to be fair, and whilst I have enough pyjamas to last me a life time, I may just treat myself to some more new ones, or ask for them for my birthday. We shall see.

  • Amazon The Hobbit Trilogy – Extended Edition Blu-ray – £44.00 (link)

I LOVE The Hobbit… More so than Lord of The Rings, but I put this down to me going to see all The Hobbit films in the cinema, I was never allowed to do this with Lord of The Rings as a child/teenager. I own The Lord of The Rings Trilogy Extended Edition Blu-ray’s so I have been eagerly waiting for The Hobbit’s one to be released so I could buy them all. I intend to have a marathon of this as soon as I get them. If no one buys me this for my birthday, I’ll soon buy it for myself… Possibly whilst my boyfriend is on holiday so I can marathon them the weekend he’s due to leave.

  • Amazon Sword Art Online: Lost Song Playstation 4 game – £24.99 (link)

As I mentioned on a post recently, I now have a PS4 and I love it so much! I really would love to get some more games for it, and this is one I have my eye on, out of many! Me and my boyfriend got to demo this game whilst we were at Hyper Japan and I really liked it! There are many more games out there I would have asked for instead, like Life is Strange, but this isn’t released for another 20 days yet! I love the Sword Art Online anime, and I really want to read the manga, so the game is right up my street!

  • AnimUK Animal Crossing Isabelle Nendoroid – £32.99 (link)

I’ve spoken various times in the past about Nendoroid’s and how much both me and my boyfriend love, and collect them. I wanted the Animal Crossing Isabelle figures ages ago, but they sold out and go for a lot of money now. However, they’ve re-released one of the two, and I intend to get one before they go again! It isn’t expensive either, and AnimUK are a great place to go to for Nendoroid’s as they don’t charge you for the custom fees that the official Good Smile Company shop do.

  • Loungefly Star Wars Boba Fett Brown Wallet – $38.00 (link)

I don’t NEED a new wallet, but I would really like a new one… I love the fox one I have by Loungefly but I fancy a change for some reason, and this Boba Fett wallet is one I’ve had my eye on for a while. It isn’t cheap however, and is impossible to get hold of in the UK without paying through the teeth for it from America. I’ll have to see if I REALLY want it.

  • GAME Sony PlayStation DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless Controller Darth Vader Edition – £49.99 (link)

With my new Playstation 4 I’ll need another controller for it so that my boyfriend can play games with me! I really wanted the limited edition Darth Vader PS4, but 1. it was too much money, and 2. it was sold out anyway so… The controller is probably the nicest part of the console itself, so the fact you can buy the controller is pretty awesome! It isn’t cheap, no but it’ll be worth it! I’d use this one, and my boyfriend could have the normal controller… Because he isn’t special enough for the Darth Vader one, of course. 😉

So that’s my wish list for my birthday, and January! I can’t believe I’m going to be 26 in just three days. Damn I’m getting old. 😛

What’s on your wish list for January? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and see you soon.

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.

October Wish List

I know I say this every month, but I just can’t believe how quickly this year has flown. It’s now October and a whole month since I finished university. My favourite month has passed, and it’s now only a couple of months until Christmas and New Year… And also until I turn 26. Oh woe!

I really need to watch my money this month, but at the same time October is appearing to be the month where everything I want to buy is coming out, so we shall see how that goes… But for now, here are the items I am lusting after this month!

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Masochist.

I have been lusting after one of Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks ever since they came out, but I have never splashed out and made a purchase because I’ve never really settled on one shade that I wanted. However now Jeffree has brought out the shade masochist I know I want this in my life. It’s a gorgeous raspberry pink shade, which is totally me and one I would rock throughout autumn and winter, maybe even spring and summer evenings. This has been available to buy since the end of September, but I’m going to wait for Cocktail Cosmetics to bring this out for sale on their website. It just works out cheaper all round. I know my mom really wants to try this shade too, so we’ll both be giving it a go when I buy it.

  • Disney Store Star Wars Sweatshirt.

I saw this recently on the Disney Store website and I really liked it, but soon forgot about it. Recently browsing around the website for some cute things I stumbled upon it again and it’s something I would love to pick up when the weather gets really chilly and I just want something to snuggle into whilst lounging around the house. I’m not the biggest Star wars fan in the world, but since a young age I was brought up to love Star Wars and I still do to this day.

  • Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer.

This is now officially out, and MINE! It came out yesterday and I made sure to pre-order it so that I would have it on my doorstep for when I got home from work. I remember this being announced at E3 and I was so excited for a new Pokemon game to be announced, but it wasn’t. This however made up for it. I love the Animal Crossing games and own them all apart from the wii version. I wanted to pick up the limited edition 3DS XL to go alongside this game but alas, I’m poor. I have however picked up the NFC Reader/Writer so I can scan the gorgeous new Animal Crossing amiibo Cards. I’ve also ordered those too and I can see them becoming an addiction… Which isn’t good when they cost £4.99 for one pack. So I ordered three packs for under £13, which isn’t bad. It’s a real treat and I haven’t been playing my 2DS lately so I’m excited to start if back up. My whole weekend will be spent playing this game me thinks.

  • Iron Fist Bat Royalty Dress.

I love a good Iron Fist dress, and as my holiday is coming up, as well as Christmas party season I do have my eyes peeled on picking up something new… I think I may have found it. This is a gorgeous black dress, with a sheer burnt out fabric that shows off some gorgeous gothic and Halloween style patterns of bats, moons, stars, and some other patterns. This isn’t cheap though, so I’m going to keep my eyes on the price to hopefully drop. I can’t find this for sale on Iron Fist’s website and have actually found this through a seller on eBay. I’d rock this with some tights, boots, and a snuggly jumper, or my spiked biker jacket.

  • Yankee Candle in Snowflake Cookie.

If there is a season of Yankee Candle’s I love, it’s definitely the Christmas ones. They just remind me of Christmas, as well as other things, and to me they just smell the best. I still have just under half of a jar of Candy Cane Lane left, which I refuse to use again until I get another jar  to burn. I just can’t wait to be able to pick up another Christmas candle to burn. I’m super excited.

  • Shopaholic To The Rescue by Sophie Kinsella.

I LOVE the Shopaholic series so when I read that the next installment would be out only a year after the last, I was so happy! I’ll probably pick this up before I go on holiday so I can read it whilst I’m there and this isn’t out until the end of the month anyway, so I have plenty of time to pick it up. The way the previous book ended made me so mad as it meant that I would need to wait for the next book to come out, which I thought would be in another couple of years. I’ll be buying the hardback again, as I just can’t wait until March for the paperback.

  • Skinnydip London Glitter Unicorn iPhone 6 Case.

I’ve been eyeing this phone case up since I saw it being spoken about over on Becky’s blog Milk Bubble Tea. It’s such a cute and beautiful phone case, and one that is selling out FAST. It has unicorns on it and water glitter inside so when you move the phone, the glitter moves too! These styles of phone cases are popping up everywhere at the moment, and now I’m lusting after one myself. This isn’t the cheapest phone case ever, but I have a discount code I can use on it, so I may just order it now it’s back in stock! I don’t know if I can resist this for too much longer.

So that is my wish list this month! I really don’t need to buy anything off of it as I’m so skint at the moment, and need to really start saving up for my holiday, as well as to try and get a deposit down on a house. Oh the joys of being an adult, eh?

What’s on your wish lists this month readers? Please let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time though, take care all and have a great weekend!

September Wish List

I’m so poor, I swear to God. I shouldn’t even be making a wish list! But it’s called a wish list for a reason… So it’s kind of acceptable, right?

I’m lusting after quite a lot with Christmas just around the corner and my parents offering to get me a gift for finishing my MA. But even so, I’m still poor and I can’t even treat myself after finally finishing uni. Oh well, when I have money I’ll treat myself for sure!

However, until then I’ll just have to lust after these gorgeous things. Oh be still my beating heart… There are quite a few let’s say luxurious items on my wish list this month and that’s because that is all I seem to be lusting over at the moment. Which in turn is extremely annoying!

  • OPI Nail Lacquer in Coca Cola Visions of Georgia Green.

I love me some OPI polishes and one of the collections I love the most definitely has to be the Coca Cola collection from last summer. I picked up some of the shades in January in the miniature form and I love them all! So when I heard that OPI were bringing out a couple of more shades to go alongside the collection, I wondered what they would look like, and of course they’re gorgeous. There are two and the one that I loved the most is this gorgeous metallic shade called Visions of Georgia Green. This looks like a pretty sheer polish and one I would wear throughout the year. I’d love to pick this up for when I go on holiday, but we shall see!

  • Christian Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet EDT.

I recently got this as a sample in the post and it really does smell beautiful! I remember giving this a sniff when I was on holiday in January and it didn’t seem to smell as nice then as it does now I have the sample. I’m very wary about EDT perfumes due to how weak they can smell, as well as how much they need to be topped up. It’s just a really fresh and light scent that smells beautiful. This isn’t cheap, but I think when I go on holiday I’ll pick this up in duty free, or whilst I’m away considering it’s a tax free island.

  • Nintendo New 3DS XL Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Bundle.

This is something I have already mentioned on my wish list, I’m pretty sure it was last month to be honest. BUT in August Nintendo finally announced that they would release a bundle with a special edition 3DS, as well as the new Animal Crossing game. I LOVE Animal Crossing, it really does make me happy and helps me to relax when I’m stressed out as well. My boyfriend has mentioned buying me this for Christmas, but I would ideally like it for when it comes out. It isn’t out for another month yet, so we shall see what happens.

  • Lush Granny Takes A Dip Bubble Bar.

I never liked the original bath bomb version of this. I found it smelt way too strong and if anything gave me massive headaches. However I really did like this one due to the scent not being a strong. It would be one of those treats to have after pole dance fitness in the coming autumn and winter times. I may treat myself to this soon, especially since my MA is now finished. But I shall see… I have plenty of Lush products to get used up.

  • Microsoft Xbox One.

This is a luxurious item and one I doubt I will get for a very long time… Probably Christmas if at all! Me and my boyfriend always play Minecraft when we’re at his with two of our friends and it’s definitely become a love of mine. Minecraft like Animal Crossing is such a relaxing game, and after being so stressed out lately, and my anxiety being really high, it has helped me calm down and unwind. When I felt poorly on Monday I played Minecraft and it really did help. So I would like my own Xbox One so I can play with my boyfriend and our friends from my own home, instead of just from his. Of course, this is expensive and the TV I have in my room would also struggle to run it’s graphics on it… So it would be rendered useless I guess.

  • Yankee Candle in Cotton Candy.

This is one of the special appearances that Yankee Candle bring out on a regular basis and one I have been eyeing up for a while. I gave this a sniff last month and it smells delicious! I was imagining it would be really strong and sickly, but it’s actually really light and smells like sugar. It’s a very nice scent, and one I would like to own soon for when autumn time comes. I think if I have any cash spare soon, and it’s still for sale, I’ll pick it up.

  • Vivienne Westwood Henry Winter Tartan Bag.

As old readers will know, I love Vivienne Westwood bags and it’s a brand I’ve always wanted to own something of, especially a bag. I saw my dream one at the start of the year, but I made the mistake of not ordering and missed my chance. However, I have soon realised not to let such a good deal in the sales slip by again so I’m making sure to keep my eyes peeled out for one of these bags for in the future. If I don’t get a new one, I’ll try and pick up a second hand one from eBay. I’ve eyed a couple up that I like the look of, but it’s about parting with such a large amount of money, without actually seeing said item first. I’ll have to see… But as I said at the start of this post, I’m pretty skint!

So, that’s my wish list for September, and boy what a wish list it is… What are you eyeing up this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time all, take care.
