Best Friend Tag!

I’ve been a bit quiet the past which, which I apologise for hundreds of millions of times! My reason for it is just because I’ve been too busy and tired after work and just wanted a bit of a break from blogging.

BUT I AM BACK and with a tag that I couldn’t wait to put up on my blog for you guys to read. I don’t know if I speak for many but I LOVE reading posts from bloggers that enable you to get to know more about the person behind the blog. I also love being able to find out more about them through their friends through posts and tags like this one.

Sadly I can’t remember the blogger who I found this tag through and when I tried to locate her blog my computer decided that it was a massive virus and blocked her blog. Oh dear. >.<

But yeah I wanted to do this tag to show all my bloggers what an amazing bestie I have and how much I love her! So we answered the questions to the tag via Facebook messenger and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. 😛

So I hope you enjoy this tag!

1. How and when did you meet?
Gabriella: On a forum in late 2008/early 2009. We used to talk on MSN, which shows how long we’ve been friends!
Nat: As Gabriella said we met on a forum that we do not name! I can’t believe it’s been 10 years next year! :O

2. What’s your favourite memory together?
G: That’s a tough one. I’d say meeting Benedict Cumberbatch together.
N: I’d probably say that day as well! I remember that evening so well, it was amazing.

3. Describe each other in one word.
G: Passionate.
N: Intelligent.

From back in 2010 when MSN was still happening!

4. What’s her dream job?
G: Something to do with acting or writing 🙂
N: A psychology teacher, Japanese translator/Japanese teacher or even acting or singing. ^_^

5. What’s her favourite makeup brand?
G: Oh god. Now that’s a tough one. I don’t think she has an ultimate favourite. She likes a lot of different brands.
N: Ooo I don’t know to be perfectly honest with you… I want to say Barry M but I put this down to her recently staying over and us looking at the Barry M goodies. 😛 Although I own a beauty blog, we rarely talk about make up haha!

6. What is something that annoys you about the other person?
G: I don’t think anything does really? I wish she’d have more confidence in herself, but I don’t consider that an annoyance.
N: To be honest that she doesn’t live closer because I miss her face all the time. Otherwise she’s perfect to me just the way she is!

7. If you could go anywhere in the world together, where would it be?
G: Japan! Preferably when we could see the sakura blossoms bloom.
N: Gabriella has already said it! Apart from Dane if there is one person I REALLY want to go to Japan with its Gabriella. I also want to go and see the sakura… I think we both need to plan something like this in the future…

Our last picture together, this was from Gabriella’s birthday last year! We are long overdue a new one. 😛

8. Favourite inside joke?
G: Ben and Tommy Cream Pie ice cream. XD
N: HAHAHA oh man I remember when we both thought of that! 😛 Oh man inside jokes… Anything rude and to do with men we fangirl over! Don’t think we can top Ben and Tommy Cream Pie ice cream though! I legit didn’t try and make a picture of that. 😛

9. Who takes longer to get ready in the morning?
G: Natalee definitely.
N: Yeah I always take ages to get ready.

10. Favourite season?
G: Summer, maybe?
N: Autumn for me. I love getting ready for Halloween and Bonfire night. September is my favourite month because of it. I’d like to say autumn or winter for Gab.

11. Favourite song?
G: I don’t actually know. We rarely discuss music.
N: Yeah we’ve never really discussed music much. I’d like to guess something by MCR though. I could be wrong…

Taken from the day we met Benedict Cumberbatch!

12. What is it like being best friends with someone who is obsessed with blogging?
G: I’m all for her having hobbies, especially ones that encourage creativity, and doing something she obviously enjoys so much.
N: Thank you sweetie! I love asking you to write for my blog too as I love having you be a part of something I love doing so much. 🙂

13. Heels or flats?
G: Flats!
N: FLATS! I do own heels and boots but I only ever wore them in my room as I was too scared to wear them out. I remember when we went to see Benedict Cumberbatch Gab wore heeled boots and I was all, “GIRL WHAT ARE THOSE ON YOUR FEET?!” Usually she wore Converse or Vans so I felt like I was witnessing a younger sister all grown up and going to the ball. 😛

14. Comedy, horror, or chick-flick?
G: I’d say comedy.
N: It depends I like a bit of everything. I love my drama films though, especially UK based ones.

15. What is something weird that she eats?
G: Marmite. It’s just gross.
N: Apart from Marmite Gab eats a lot of the same stuff as I do. I can’t think of anything to be honest.

Our first picture together! This was probably from back in 2011/2012!

16. You guys have anything matching?
G: I think we have a matching John Watson jumper? Other than that, I don’t think so.
N: You know what? I was thinking about that John Watson jumper the other day and how much I loved wearing it in the winter! With the brown elbow patches. 😛 I think we probably own some matching Primark/Asda pyjamas too but that’s about it. We need more matching clothes. Yuri on Ice maybe? 😉

So that’s the best friend tag! I had so much fun doing this post with Gabriella! I guess it’s a shame there wasn’t more questions for us to both answer really. I may create another one myself like this in the future to do a year from today? What do you guys think?

So who do I tag to do this post? EVERYONE AS USUAL! I’ll be tagging people via Twitter so keep your eyes peeled for those mentions. 😉

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

His & Her E3 2017 Highlights

Image taken from Latest News Explorer

So E3 2017 has come and gone and me and Dane made sure to tune in whenever we could, missing only two live shows, which we caught up on the next day.

I’ve never watched E3 so religiously before and only ever tuning into the conferences and talks after they’ve been live. It was pretty awesome to be honest cuddling with Dane to tune into the talks and at some points we even chatted to our friend Lee via Xbox Live whilst watching the Microsoft talked. We have now both said it will be a tradition to watch E3 every year.

BUT enough of that, let’s talk about what games we’re excited for and what we thought about E3 overall!

I’ll go first! I was tempted to try to do a top 5, but that shit isn’t going to happen. I may only want a select few but Dane wants loads of games… And I can’t say I blame him. 😛

I have to be honest and say my favourite conference out of all of them had to be a mixture of Ubisoft and Sony, I sway more towards Ubisoft however due to two of their announcements.

I am a huge South Park fan and have been eagerly awaiting for The Fractured But Whole to come out. I’ve been waiting a year longer than expected in the first place too due to Ubisoft pushing the release date back since late 2016. A new release date has been announced though AND Ubisoft showed off another trailer for the game!

The game play and story looks like it has completely changed from the one at E3 2016. I had heard rumours that Trey Parker and Matt Stone weren’t happy with how the story was going so scraped what they had and started all over again. Although I get pissed off with having to wait for the game to come out, I am grateful that Parker and Stone want what’s best for the fans. They’ve never worked so closely with game companies when South Park games have come out in the past and they’ve commented how they regret it due to how poor they turned out. As usual from the gameplay being shown and played at E3, the guys never fail to be rude and crude and make me piss myself laughing. The footage I’ve watched is set in a strip club! You even have to do a strip dance mini game and your just constantly farting on the guys crotch. NICE! The graphics look so much better than The Stick of Truth which already makes me really happy! It just runs smoother. I’m never ever arsed about that sort of stuff either. Like the first game your character doesn’t talk and is fully customise-able. The battles are completely different now from how they used to be. You still take it in turns to fight your enemies but you can move all around the area now to attack people, which I think is pretty cool! It also looks like you’ll be able to play alongside more characters than before which is exciting! I really can’t wait for this  game and closer to the release date I’ll be pre-ordering it.

South Park fans were spoilt though as after The Fractured But Whole we were given the above trailer for Phone Destroyer, which is obviously a phone game. I’m just so damn excited for what this game will bring! I’ve been after a decent game to mong out and play on my phone for ages, and alas it’s finally here!

One of the first games that was announced and I was excited for was Life Is Strange Before The Storm. I LOVED Life Is Strange when it came out and I was addicted to it for a while. I loved it so much that after playing it on Dane’s Xbox I ended up buying it to play on my PS4 too. This game is a prequel to the first and follows Chloe three years before the first game and won’t contain time travel, that’s Max’s thing. We follow Chloe after her dad has died in the car accident and basically from what I can tell, how she’s dealing with it and becomes who she is when she is reunited with Max. We see her befriend Rachel and if anyone else is like me when playing Life Is Strange, I was constantly asking myself, “What the fuck happened with Chloe and Rachel? Are they lovers? Or was Chloe being clingy due to what happened to her dad and thought it was more than what it was?” I’m really excited to find out all about Rachel though as she felt like a main character in Life Is Strange even though she wasn’t existent. From what I have gathered so far though from the gameplay she heavily influenced Chloe to become the person she was when Max saw her. We will find out in the prequel all about Rachel though! FYI this is not the second Life Is Strange, that is currently in development. I’m so damn excited for this game though and I WILL be getting it on PS4!

Holy shit this is a game I have been excited for for as long as I can remember now. Quantic Dream are the people behind Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, which are both two of my favourite games! They work exclusively with Sony and PlayStation, which in turn makes me happy as I’m a PlayStation girl at heart. 😛 Detroit: Become Human was announced a couple of years ago and since then has been worked on! I was really hoping for a release date to be announced after the trailer was shown at E3 this year, but sadly we still haven’t been given a date. From what I can gather from gameplay footage and trailers you play as various different droids who are trying to (as the name suggests) become human. They use their abilities to free the droids who aren’t able to control their abilities and basically make the world between them and human equal and fair. It looks amazing to be honest and the story behind it sounds unique and full of twists and secrets, like the previous games really. To think this game only started off as a way for Quantic Dream to show off what they were doing after Beyond: Two Souls. I’m so glad they decided to go with it though.

Do I really have to talk much about this game? It’s definitely one of my favourites that Microsoft announced during their conference. It’s a new game, Super Lucky’s Tale and it’s coming out towards the end of the year, only to Xbox One. It reminds me of Spyro and you know what? I REALLY miss games like that. I wish people would bring them back, and I’m hoping that this is just the start. It’s also equally appealing to me due to the main character being a cute little fox! I cannot wait to get this when it comes out! A part of me hopes it’s co-op so me and Dane can play it together, but I highly doubt that!

I don’t recall watching the trailer for this at first and due to that Dane was confused whenever he mentioned it to me and I didn’t get excited. “Nat you will want Ooblets!” he kept saying to me over and over again. He popped the trailer on to refresh my memory and I knew straight away that he was right, I would want it. It reminds me of Animal Crossing to be honest… But not as good as Animal Crossing will always have a warm spot in my heart. This will be on the Xbox One so that’ll be the platform of choice for playing this cute game.

Now that I’ve spoken about some of my highlights from E3 2017 it’s now Dane’s turn to take over the rest of the post and talk about his thoughts on the games announced this year, as well as the new Xbox One X.

From the looks of it I will be going against the grain with the populous and say I was and still am pumped from E3. Peoples excited reactions from this years E3 seems to have fizzled out and there are even some people who found this year to be wholly underwhelming. I completely disagree.

First things first is the elephant in the Microsoft shaped room with their new console.

It actually took me approximately 2 years into the Xbox One’s life before I made the transition from the Xbox 360 and I am glad I made the jump. I had serious reservations and complaints about the way Microsoft were handling their launch of the One and did not think it was worth my time and money. Since then they have gone back on many of their plans and with the announcement of the Scorpio (development name of the X) they have rebuilt my faith in Microsoft.

The best thing to do is watch the video above to find out about the specifications but it is all POWER!

In terms of games though there are way too many for me to list here so I will copy in the Xbox game showcase.

Natalee has already mentioned her big ones she’s excited for and I too am also excited for those games, particularly Ooblets and South Park: FBW but she has already spoken of them so I won’t say anymore. For me there is really just too many to discuss and I will most likely forget about some things but I will try to pick a few things out to share my excitement.

Crackdown 3. JUMPING, SHOOTING, THROWING and BLOWING SHIT UP.
The multiplayer for this game will be where it’s at. Making the most of the power of their Azure servers Crackdown is hoping to cause citywide destruction in an online environment. What can I say? I like blowing stuff up… and Terry Crews. NUFF SAID.

Player Unknowns: Battlegrounds is one I never expected to come to Xbox exclusively. I don’t have a PC good enough (yet) to play many games like this. I have always wanted to play a survival/arena game with my friends but the consoles are very limited with what you have available so this is a welcome treat. Here is the trailer from E3:

Sea of Thieves is one more multiplayer game that I have had on my watch list since it was first announced a while back. Open world, multiplayer pirating. There is not really anything more to say. Well, I should also mention it is a Rare (the developer) game who have a brilliant development record until Microsoft bought them out and forced them to do Kinect games. So hopefully this is a return to form for Rare which I am truly excited to go plunder with my friends when it is released.

Anthem was a surprise showing at E3, others may have been expecting a new IP from Bioware but I most certainly was not. This game was gorgeous and also online coop. This is one I am definitely keeping my eye on. I don’t really know much more than it is a 3rd person RPG in power suits. It looks good, take a look!

That’s the main ones from the Xbox conference that made me excited, I just can’t wait till November! I could talk forever about all the games on show so I have really tried to limit myself, but a few honorable mentions are:

Black Desert – Online RPG that looks pretty epic.

The Last Night – Funky retro adventure game akin to the original Flashback.

Cuphead – Bullet hell platformer in the style of the old-timey cartoons.

Ashen – Dark and desperate RPG.

Deep Rock Galactic – Mining with friends!

I am only going to really talk in detail about three more games. Two from the EA conference and one from the Playstation conference.

So first let’s go for the interesting epic that is Days Gone from the Playstation conference. Zombies may be overdone but this really overdoes it in a good way. SO MANY FUCKING ZOMBIES. It actually makes the zombie scary again, not like Dead Rising where the sheer amount is awesome but they are just cannon fodder to have fun with, but a true zombie horde.

I wasn’t so impressed with the Sony conference as much, put that down to me being a fanboy but this year it just wasn’t there for me. There are some games I know I am excited for but there just wasn’t enough for me. Here’s a few honorable mentions:

God of War – An epic story about a gratuitously violent beefcake with a child.

Spiderman – Shame its PS4 Exclusive! No achievements for me on my Xbox. 😦

Shadow of the Colossus (Remake) – Never played the original but damn I want to play this.

EA had a massive show, second only to Microsoft. One of their new and VERY intriguing announcements was their split-screen adventure A Way Out.

Games and their developers seem have forgotten what it means to play with your friends. You may have noticed the majority of my highlights are largely multiplayer, but these are mostly online multiplayer. Gone are the days of playing on the couch with your friends sharing a tiny little CRT TV. A Way Out says fuck that and forces you to play with someone and share the screen regardless of where you are. The story is there too.

Finally from EA is this.

I can safely say both Natalee and I are extremely excited for this. I had the first one and it did not live up to the hype. Yes it was one of the best looking games but there was no substance. EA have promised a single player campaign, free dlc and ALL THREE TRILOGIES. I cannot wait to be playing as the clone troopers in the frostbite 3 engine. The thought makes me moist with anticipation.

YAY after days of asking Dane to write his part of this post, he’s finally done it! 😀 I can safely say I am so damn excited for both Days Gone and Star Wars: Battlefront 2. They’re both going to be amazing games! Spiderman is also one I was surprised to see as a PS4 exclusive! This makes me really happy of course due to being a Playstation gamer. The gameplay for it was gorgeous and obviously is steps above games from back in the PS1 days, but it reminded me of the Spiderman game from back in the day. I loved that game so much and would spend hours after school playing it.

I cannot wait for November to come now so we can play new games together, as well as with our gaming friends Lee and Sam!

What were your highlights from E3 this year? Make sure to let me know in the comments, as well as over at Twitter @maybeecoffee ^_^

Until next time all, take care! I hope you’re enjoying the gorgeous weather, I know we are.

The Self Love Tag

I’m sorry my blog has been lacking of a blog post since my haul, but sadly due to being a mixture of busy and Dane taking too long to do his part on a blog post I wanted to get something out there before the end of the week!

We’ve been really busy sadly due to both being off work to chill out together and do work on the house. We have done zero relaxing and chilling and more WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK… 😛

Finally it’s Saturday night, I have some vlogs playing and I’m going to take part in the self love tag, which I found over on Sally’s blog Little Budget’s, which I’ll leave a link to here.

Here are the rules:

Answer all the questions honestly!

Tag 5 people you’d like to do this tag! I’m just going to put it out there, if you read this post you must take part in this tag! 😛

Anyway, on with the questions! 😀

1. What is something that’s getting you down at the moment?

Without going into too much detail about it, my job. It’s not what I want to do in life right now and without sounding like a dick, I am so much better than that. I have an MA for fuck sake and it certainly isn’t in the job I’m currently doing. Alongside that money, which again is down to my job.

2. What is something that makes you happy?

Spending time with my boyfriend and friends and writing for my blog. I know that’s probably classed as two things, but they’re both things that cheer me up no matter what.

3. Name 3 guilty pleasures.

Eating anything savoury, scouting eBay for geeky goodies and picking the ingrown hairs out of Dane’s face. 😛

4. What is something about yourself you want to improve?

I’d like to try and get back into shape again. I was toned as fuck when I first started my job and I looked hella good because of it! Now, whilst I have lost a bit of weight I want to be toned. I miss my minor two pack abs and hench as fuck arms. 😦

5. When was the last time you belly laughed?

Wednesday night/Thursday morning over at a friends house. We were playing games and we just hollered with laughter. It was amazing.

6. What is your biggest insecurity/fear?

I guess failing. I don’t want to end up looking back on my life and thinking, “Fuck Nat what did you do wrong?” I want to have a great job that not only pays my bills but enables me to do things I REALLY want to do. Examples being going to Japan, buying things I really want, paying off our mortgage, etc. As well as that I really do want to start my own family, but right now I’m such a mess that I just can’t and that fucking sucks. I just want to do well in life. 😦

7. Name a song that always cheers you up when you’re down.

Erm… I’m not sure to be honest I have so many! xD Right now the main song from Persona 5 makes me happy.

8. Name 3 things you like about yourself.

My eyebrows as they’re naturally amazing. My hair because it’s lovely, long and wavy. Finally… Probably (I know it’s two) but my boobs and bum. Over the years they’ve just got better and it’s nice to finally have a chest! That and Dane loves my bum, which is something I’ve always hated as I thought it was too big. It’s from him loving it that has helped me love it too. :’)

9. What is an achievement that’s made you proud of yourself this year?

I can’t say as I have one to be honest… I know that sounds dumb but I really can’t think of anything. So far this year it’s been a mix of massive emotions. If anything I know a few are proud of me for reaching out for help about my mental health, but I just feel like that isn’t enough to make myself proud sadly. So right now nothing has made me proud yet… Sadly.

10. Tell us your happiest memory.

Ever? Erm… Quite possibly when me and Dane went to Fuerteventura for the first time and went out together for little adventures in the day. Due to this it makes me really excited for September when we go again!

So those are my answers for the self love tag! Will you be giving it a go? If so make sure to comment on here and link me to your posts! 😀

Until next time all take care and I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend so far.

A Geeky Collective Haul

I can’t actually remember the last time I wrote a haul post on my blog… A part of me feels like it was May 2016 when I was brought back some stuff from Fuerteventura… *goes to do some research* Okay I tell a lie! The last haul I did was back in October 2016 when I did a haul of what goodies me and Dane picked up from Birmingham’s anime and gaming con (I’ll pop a link here if you want to read that!).

BUT the time has come for yet another haul and a collective one at that! I’ve got stuff in this haul that I’ve picked up for about a month and everything in it is geeky! 😛 I was originally just going to call it a Pokemon haul considering most of the stuff is Pokemon related. But meh I don’t wanna do thaaaaaat! 😛

  • Loungefly x Pokemon Tattoo Flash Print Duffle Bag.

This is definitely one of my favourite buys of 2017 so far and it’s a bag I have wanted for quite some time now! Everyone I know knows how much I love Pokemon so to be able to own a grown up handbag makes me happy. That and I also love the products that Loungefly come out with. I own a couple of their items and they’re all amazing. I didn’t buy this brand new from the website however, I’d need to take out a loan. 😛 I got this second hand from an eBay seller in the UK and it’s in great condition for how much I paid for it. It’s pretty much my anniversary present from Dane. I bought my bag and he bought himself something for the computer. So an all around win win situation! 😛 FYI I will be doing a post about this bag properly VERY soon! I’m too excited not to show it off on my blog. 😛

  • Nendoroid Gumi.

FYI I was too excited about displaying her to wait a week to take pictures for this post, so I do apologise for all sorts of pictures… 😛 This was another eBay purchase and one I am so damn happy with! I have wanted the Gumi Nendoroid for as long as I can remember, but the problem was being able to find her at a decent price! Due to her being a Vocaloid and her being made and released back in 2013 it makes her rare I suppose and she can be pricey to pick up. Someone had her up on eBay for bidding and I JUST won the bid! She’s second hand but I don’t care. She’s been very much looked after and loved so that doesn’t bother me too much! She’s going to go on display next to Deadpool in our Nendoroid cupboard.

  • Pokemon Center Eevee Collection Poke Dolls Vaporeon and Sylveon Pin Badges.

This was a random purchase and one I am SO glad I made now! YY Kawaii was advertising that she had some of the Eevee pin badges for sale and at the time I thought this was the only bit of merch I was going to snag from this amazing collection. Honestly this is the second Eeveelution collection I have bought from now and it is just as good as the last one. ANYWAY! I couldn’t decide on one Eeveelution so I picked two of my favourites, Vaporeon and Sylveon. In my opinion Sylveon looks the cutest out of all 9 for the pin badges! I have contemplated popping these on my Pokemon bag… But we shall see! 😛 I’m not 100% sure if YY Kawaii has anymore of these left to sell, I ordered mine with her over a month ago now sadly. You can always drop her a message and I’m sure she’ll be more than happy to help! If anything I regret not buying all of the Eeveelutions to be honest… But we can still try. 😛

  • Pokemon Center Eevee Collection Poke Dolls Flareon Plushie.

This is definitely something I am SO HAPPY TO HAVE! If there was one thing I really wanted from this collection it was a plushie as they’re all so cute. I knew I couldn’t have all of them and my only option was going to be to pick up one. I then had the hard choice of picking just one, JUST ONE! Do you know how hard that can be? Well I ended up picking Flareon as I found it was the cutest one out of the bunch. Then after settling on one I wanted it was time to find someone who was willing to sell it at a decent price. Again YY Kawaii came to my rescue and sold this little cutie to me at a great price! It’s so fluffy and now lives with the rest of my Eeveelution plushies in the living room, it makes  me so happy. A part of me doesn’t want to keep this in the cupboard with all the others, but on the fireplace next to my Vaporeon and Flareon picture and figures… I want it to be safe away from direct sunlight though… 😦

  • Tamagotchi 4U.

This is something I’ve wanted for a while after watching a couple of YouTubers I follow talk about them. These are only made in Japan and therefore are only available from there. I got this from a seller in the UK so it’s secondhand. I think it’s only had one or two owners which isn’t a bad thing! It wasn’t exactly cheap for what it is but it cost me less to actually buy this than our up to date Tamagotchi here in the UK! It’s a colour screen and sadly is ALL in Japanese. With a bit of Googling I’ve managed to work out what stuff means on here. The only problem I’m having with it so far is trying to work out how to keep my Tamagotchi alive whilst I’m at work… But that’s what the babysitter is for. Yeah there’s a babysitter in the game. 😛 Sadly when it came to taking pictures of my Tamagotchi it was telling me how the batteries were dead. Fuck sake. 😛 SO I attached a picture I took the day after I got it. 🙂

  • Primark Pokemon Pyjamas.

I wanted to get myself some new pyjamas due to the weather getting warmer and I thought why not get some Pokemon ones! I had to pick these up from eBay as 1. I don’t really get near a Primark store these days due to how busy I am and 2. They probably don’t stock these anymore. I didn’t pay much for them and let me tell you, they are hella comfortable! After getting the ones from eBay I ended up buying more when visiting an actual Primark store recently. I ended up buying a Pokemon pyjama top as well as some Pikachu shorts. The first set is from eBay and the second is from where I went into an actual Primark store instead of paying extra and being a busy/lazy bitch. 😛 I decided to go a size up when buying all of these and whilst I don’t consider myself to be a skinny moo, these are HUGE on me, especially the second set I bought. This isn’t a bad thing as it means that I’ll be comfortable, but i’m just saying it as it’s something to be wary of. I also picked up some Pikachu boyfriend boxers too but I don’t need to show them off.

So those are all the geeky goodies I picked up over the past month. I have bought a lot and thus spent a lot of money… *smacks hand* NAUGHTY NAT! YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE SAVING MONEY! No in all honesty though, a lot of this stuff to me felt like things that if I left them I probably wouldn’t get them again for a while, or at the price I paid. Examples of that being the Loungefly x Pokemon bag, the Tamagotchi (which I have discovered eat batteries like a motherfucker!), Gumi Nendoroid figure and possibly the Pokemon Center goodies too… So practically most of the shit on this haul. xD

For the rest of this month and well, until the holiday in September I’m going to be as good as I can with my cash! It’s now time to stop being daft and spending my money willy nilly and save it towards the holiday, as well as things for the house! Yesterday I bought some flowers for the garden, which is really exciting! I can’t wait for our house to be 100% done so that I can show off my favourite parts of it to you guys!

SO what items have you accumulated recently? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week so far!

The Blogger Tag

SOOOOOO sorry that I’m a day late for a blog post, but I got busy with life… And sleeping.

To explain why I never got a blog post written yesterday short and sweet, I was up for work at 4.30am, YES IN THE AM! Got back from work at 1.30pm, stressed out about my PS4 not working and thus had to wait for Dane to come home from work about 4pm to fix said issue. He fixed it around 4.30pm and I was fast asleep. Woke up at 8pm, watching him play some games, watched Soviet Womble videos on YouTube (which in turn is an AMAZING YouTuber and you should check him out here) and fell to sleep about 10pm-11pm. Sleep was legit the reason for no blog post yesterday! 😉

So when I was trying to come up with an idea of what to write today I stumbled across a saved post on my Bloglovin’ account that I’ve wanted to do for agggggges! It is as you can see, The Blogger Tag. I wasn’t tagged to take part in this sadly but I’m doing it anyway, because I am a blogger… And because I can 😛

This tag was found on Life For Me Lately which is run by the lovely Megan! I’ll leave a link to her post here so you can read her answers to the questions. 🙂

Question 1 – How tall are you?

As far as I’m aware I am 5’6 or 5’7… 😛 Not short, but not tall. 😛

Question 2 – Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

Erm… *calls Dane and asks if I have a hidden talent* Apparently he doesn’t know either. 😛 I don’t think I actually have any to be honest…

Question 3 – What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

Oh God all sorts! I hate when people follow you on both Twitter and Instagram, you follow them back because you’re a polite human being and THEY FUCKING UNFOLLOW YOU! Piss off people who do this because it is just do damn annoying! That and when you follow someone on Twitter you get that annoying automated message bullshit. Urgh go away. 😛 OH and I also hate when people review make up and don’t at least swatch said items. I want to know what it looks like outside of the tube, thank you please.

Question 4 – What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

People who feel the need to go around spreading other peoples business. That shit has nothing to do with you. Also people who can’t say simple things such as please, thank you and excuse me. Just piss off with your impoliteness. 😛

Question 5 – What’s your favourite song?

I can’t just pick ONE favourite… Well I could. The song I’ve added is one I fell in love with growing up and it definitely helped shape my love for French house/electronic music. OF COURSE I love my rock, metal etc too but I love this song so much. One of the guys behind making this song is Thomas Bangalter who is also half of Daft Punk… FYI he’s the dude who wears the silver helmet. 😉

Question 6 – What’s your favourite social media website?

Definitely Instagram! 😀 I love it even more since creating an account to coincide with my blog. If you want to follow me by the way it’s @theremightbecoffeeblog.

Question 7 – What’s your favourite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Usually catching up on blog work, playing Persona 5 (I’m addicted to that game right now) and having some of my favourite songs on whilst I clean the bathroom. I like to dance whilst I clean by the way. 😛

Question 8 – What’s your favourite junk food?

There’s all sorts I love to binge on really… As long as it’s savoury then I’m happy! So usually pizza, crisps and cheese.

Question 9 – Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I don’t have any pets sadly. 😦 I’d love a black miniature schnauzer though!

Question 10 – What are your number one favourite nonfiction/fiction books?

I’m always a sucker for Sophie Kinsella books, especially the Shopaholic series! Also love a bit of John Green too, my favourite being Looking for Alaska. OH and the Bridget Jones books are amazing.

Question 11 – What’s your favourite beauty product or tool?

Although I only have one I adore the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks and I REALLY want more. 😛 I also love the colour changing lipsticks by Barry M too! I want to review them both very soon. Speaking of Barry M I always find their lip liners to be the best as well.

Question 12 – When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I’m forever embarrassed! What do you expect from someone with anxiety? 😛 Erm… Probably one of the last times I was was at work. A colleague made me jump, which in turn made me squeal quite loudly. I stood there for a while smiling and trying to pretend that what happened hadn’t. Oh dear. 😛

Question 13 – If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Probably Red Bull… I’ve noticed I’ve started to drink that loads lately. Either that or coffee, can’t live without my daily cup of coffee. ^_^

Question 14 – What’s your favourite movie?

Ooo this is a hard one! Either Spirited Away, The Green Mile or Forrest Gump.

Question 15 – What was your favourite lesson in school and why?

It was either drama or English, I couldn’t pick one or the other. I feel like I enjoyed English that little more as I found people thought drama was more of a class to piss around in than actually learn.

Question 16 – If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Either Fuerteventura or Tokyo.

Question 17 – PC or Mac?

Although I would sway more towards PC I would also love to have both (well we do seeing as I own a PC and Dane owns a Mac) because Mac’s are better for editing (both photo and video) software than PC’s in my opinion.

Question 18 – Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse? (or kind gesture from a friend)

Dane gave me a quick kiss earlier on this afternoon. Nothing soppy, but nice all the same. 🙂

Question 19 – Favourite celebrity?

Erm… I don’t know to be honest… I love loads I can’t really pick one. Ryan Reynolds is probably my favourite to be honest but I love so many! Examples being Simon Pegg is definitely one, alongside Amy Lee, Dave Grohl, Johnny Knoxville, Joseph Gilgun, Iwan Rheon and more but I can’t think of them right now.

Question 20 – What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

There’s a couple but they’re more YouTube vloggers than bloggers. Inc Ninkcompoop, Lily Melrose and Miss Budget Beauty.

Question 21 – Who is your biggest inspiration?

I really don’t know to be honest… I’m supposed to say my parents and it’s not that they don’t inspire me but sadly my mental health is so bad right now that I don’t have any motivation to do a whole lot right now to even be inspired to do anything… If that makes sense? :’)

Question 22 – What is your favourite blog to read?

Definitely one of my fellow geeky bloggers! Either Raiin Monkey or The Mini Mermaid. I just find a lot of their posts that they write I’ll always find something I love, especially on their wish lists.

Question 23 – What is your favourite high street shop?

I don’t know really as I don’t buy clothes much anymore really… I find I sway from different stores and right now I’m loving the bikinis New Look are offering! I usually end up buying pieces from Topshop though. Either way I don’t have a favourite. If there’s a store I’m loving right now it’s Killstar!

Question 24 – Are you in education or do you work?

I’m working, full time sadly. 😛

Question 25 – One thing you are proud of?

I’m proud of owning my own home. It’s so fucking hard to do right now, but me and Dane have formed a great little team and we have our lovely home to leave and come home to everyday and that makes me happy. I’m also proud of what amazing best friends I have! Aside from the house I’m also really proud of my blog. I love it so damn much and I try to work on it as much as I physically can. It’s getting better as each month goes on and that itself makes me happy.

YES! That was The Blogger Tag! I tag everyone who reads this post to give it a go. Of course if you do I want you to leave your blog  links in the comments or over on my Twitter @maybeecoffee so I can come and read your answers.

I hope you’re all doing well and having a great week so far. What a shame about the weather though huh?

Until next time take care all!

Adventure Time With Animals, Part One! *WARNING PICTURE HEAVY THUS V. LONG POST*

Hello all! As I mentioned in my what I wore post  at the start of the week my boyfriend and I took a trip to a children’s farm for the afternoon.

We were meant to go on two occasions before this but the first time it was pouring with rain so we decided to stay in instead and the second time I had to go to work so it was cancelled.

Luckily though over the weekend we finally got to go and I can safely say it was worth the wait!

We went to a children’s farm called Hoar Park, Nuneaton and got there just after lunchtime, which seemed a good time to go as it was still quiet but busy enough that we weren’t the only ones walking around.

As well as the farm being there, there is also a cafe, children’s play area, art gallery, ice cream, cake and sweet shop, antique shop and many more little shops like these.

Before going into the farm we got ourselves some ice cream, my boyfriend decided to get chocolate and strawberry and I had coffee. The chocolate ice cream looked amazing and a part of me wishes I’d had a scoop of that as well, but I’ll save it until next time!

We had a look around a few of the shops and then decided it was time to go and see all the farm animals!

It only cost £2.50 each, which I thought was a great price for how many animals we got to see, plus you don’t get timed for how long you look around for, which I thought was even better! As well as that you could buy some food buckets for the birds, as well as the bigger animals (goats, pigs, deer) and these cost 50p each, so I bought one of each for my boyfriend. I would have had a go at feeding the animals too, but I’ve never been a huge fan of it myself, so I was happy enough taking photos and watching him feed the animals.

I have never in my life seen a black duck so when I saw one before we even paid to enter the farm, I was shouting, “It’s black! Why is it black?! I didn’t even know black ducks existed!” and I can honestly say I didn’t, but they’re now my favourite ducks! They’re more of a darkish brown-black with gorgeous feathers that turn from green, purple and blue shades in the right light, as you can see on my pictures. We also spotted some black ducklings, but they’re being saved until later in this post.

These three turkey’s were left to wander around amongst the visitors of the farm and I won’t lie, they freaked me out a tad. They seemed harmless enough and followed purely for food, but I like the scared child I am, I walked away from them as soon as I could and I was only brave enough to get close enough to them to take these three pictures.

Inside one of the chicken and duck pens they had a bird box for doves, which looks gorgeous and it was covered in doves and as we walked around the farm doves would be sat on different pens, every now and again flying away to go back to their bird box. I was lucky enough to get close enough to this dove to take a good picture of it. I really like this picture.

These were our favourite animals in the farm area, the little kids! Look how cute they are! Across from them were some adult goats, which of course were given our attention, but not as much as these little guys. They were adorable and kept running over to us for more food, as well as following us around their pen as we made our way to the other animals. We saw these last too before heading to some different animals (which we took most of our photographs of).

This is Marlon the pig and boy did he like being fed! If you held the food above his head and dropped it he would open his mouth and gobble up all the food you dropped into his mouth for him. My boyfriend had told me before we left to head to the farm about Marlon, but I didn’t quite believe it until I witnessed it for myself. Look at that happy face on the third picture, it’s as if he was saying thank you for the grub!

DSC_0057

These two guys were next to Marlon, look there’s a ginger pig, like my boyfriend… He’s not a pig… Just ginger. 😉

This deer was really cute and with a shake of our food bucket it came wandering over for some treats. It was really friendly and docile which was really nice seeing as the kids and goats all fought each other for food.

DSC_0076

The goat on the left was a bit of a dick and wouldn’t leave us alone.
However, the ginger goat was head-butting the poor little black and white goat because he wanted our food.

DSC_0070

This goat was nice, he didn’t have much of our food.

DSC_0068

A mountain goat, at heart and thus the overlord of all the goats!

DSC_0074

LOOK, IT’S RAMDALF THE GREY!

DSC_0071

This is the poor little black and white goat that kept being bullied by all the bigger goats. We tried to make sure he was fed the most as he deserved it, even if the ginger goat kept head-butting this poor little guy away. We liked this goat, he should have been with the kids!

This was another deer, who was double the size of the previous one. It also only had three legs and it seemed tired whenever it moved about. Nonetheless it was quiet and somewhat shy, but still very friendly. We stood by this deer for ages and fed it whilst we watched some commotion going on with the farms Jack Russell catching a rat next to Ramdalf.

We weren’t supposed to feed the donkey’s, but we ended up feeding one of them… But we noticed a family did exactly the same thing we did. The donkey’s were cute and like all the other farm animals, quiet and friendly when we approached them.

DSC_0098

DSC_0100

Next to the donkey’s pen was this wooden archway and I quickly took a picture of my boyfriend stood at the top of it. It’ll look beautiful when it grows a little more and has some leaves on it. Also, you know the turkey’s I mentioned earlier? The ones who were left to wander around with the visitors? One of the turkey’s sat next to one of the pens where fellow turkey’s were kept. This looked really sad, so I thought I would take a picture of it. Turkey’s need to stick together!

Then we moved onto the smaller animals… Which you will have to stay tuned for as otherwise this post will be way too long and so full of cute that it needs its very own post!

It’ll be on tomorrow, so stay tuned for that, it’ll be worth the wait!

Until tomorrow, take care and see you soon.
