Me and My Technicoloured Cardigan

Please, please, PLEASE excuse the title of this blog post, but you have my dad to thank for that! Well in fact, you have my dad to thank for the blog post in general to be perfectly honest with you.

I mentioned this cardigan recently on my March wish list post (which you can read here) as I had recently stumbled across it on ASOS and wanted it so badly, however they didn’t stock my size at the time.

So, me being the patient person I am (well… Sometimes…) saved it to my favourites on the computer, as well as on my phone. Sadly, my size never did come in stock and before I knew it, the cardigan was sold out.

I was gutted, GUTTED. I even went to Twitter and dropped ASOS a tweet asking if it would be back in stock. They told me they weren’t sure but to keep my eyes peeled.

Now let me tell you, I certainly did my eyes peeled. Like a hawk to be perfectly honest with you! Every chance I got I went onto the page to check if it had come back in stock. Last week I noticed it had come into stock, BUT it was in a size XS. Hell, to the no am I that size so I was grumpy about it. Then a couple of days later it came back in a size M and whilst I MIGHT have squeezed into that size… I didn’t want it. Again, I went into a grump and felt like giving up my hopes of it ever coming out in my size again.

HOWEVER, on Sunday night it did in fact come out in an XL and whilst this isn’t my size, I don’t care about having a size bigger. YES, I have just admitted that I’m an L… Well in this garment anyway. 😛

I was in a spot of trouble however, I’m trying so badly to save money and although I wanted this cardigan really badly and it wasn’t expensive at £35… I was tied.

I’d added it to my basket and was making the steps of going through payment and I stopped. Could I really justify buying this? Did I want to worry about stressing about money? That point was one moments my brain reminds me that I’m an adult and I have responsibilities.

I asked Dane for his opinion and his answer reflected the adult in my mind, he obviously said no.

By the time I had ummed and ahhed about what I was going to do it had sold out. Again, I was gutted that I had somewhat got my hopes up for getting it… But if it was meant to be, it would have been by now.

Later whilst talking to my dad, I had a quick peep at the item again as I was vaguely talking to him about it and guess what? The XL was in stock AGAIN!

I quickly asked my dad, “Hey you didn’t get me anything for my birthday, did you? Well that cardigan is back in stock… Want to buy me that?”

I didn’t expect the answer I got, so when he said, “Yeah I can do. Order it and I’ll send you the money.” I was overjoyed!

So, the title of this post is thanks to him. When I showed him what the cardigan looked like he said how it reminded him of the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat which I liked.

My dad was a hippie back in the 70’s so I’d like to think he would approve of me wearing stuff like this. I remember years before him seeing a coat by Joe Browns that he wanted to buy me as it reminded him of something he’d have worn back then. Sadly, he never bought it for me as whilst I may have worn it, it would have only been a handful of times.

I feel like the unicorn and mermaid trends have come and are still sort of sticking around, BUT I feel like in 2018 there will be a rainbow trend hitting and it’ll hit hard this spring and summer along with the 90’s and grunge trends!

As many people will know, Lazy Oaf brought out their rainbow cardigan last year, (sadly it’s currently out of stock) and EVERYONE went mad for it! I did to be honest with you but by the time I’d even heard about it, it had sold out. Now at £75.00, in my mind it’s a bloody rip off for what it is. Fair play if you can afford and justify the price, but personally £75.00 could be a two weeks food shop for myself and Dane.

Not just that though, after looking more and more at the Lazy Oaf cardigan I can’t say I like the shape of it… It looks snug and comfortable from the back, but from the front it looks frumpy and dis-proportioned. On the stock photo the buttons don’t even look like they’ve been done up properly, if that makes sense? Let’s also add, the model looks fucking miserable on the Lazy Oaf website.

I gave up on the idea of ever getting the Lazy Oaf one. As I said, it had sold out everywhere and whenever I looked on eBay and Depop for people selling it, people were either charging more for it than it originally sold for or they were selling fakes. I must give it to people on Depop, they were honest about them being fake, BUT they were using photos bloggers had taken and obviously used on their posts or social media. A good example of this can be the one of YouTuber/blogger Helen Anderson with someone else. It’s a shame this image has technically been “stolen” to be used to make people money online. Yuck, not cool!

So now I had my own rainbow cardigan! I ordered on the Sunday night and my cardigan arrived Thursday. VERY quick for free delivery, which I was equally happy about! It arrived whilst I was at work so I was excited to get home to see it.

Let me tell you, when I opened the package and saw the gorgeous and colourful rainbow stripes looking up at me, I felt happy. There is just something about rainbow stripes that remind me of when I was a child and throughout my early teens.

When holding this in your hands this cardigan can feel quiet heavy… I hope that makes sense! However, when you wear it it is weightless and let me add, extremely comfortable!

As I mentioned before, I picked up an XL when usually I’m an L and whilst this cardigan is oversized, I didn’t expect it to be as big as it actually is! I worried it was a little too big, but to be honest it makes it incredibly comfortable.

It doesn’t remind me of a cardigan to be honest due to the size and if anything, it’s more like a huge blanket!

I wore it for the first time at work on Monday and oh man I loved it and I loved that everyone else did too. I feel like pieces like this can really brighten people up, especially yourself. I had a crap drive to work that morning due to the snow so wearing that cardigan was lovely.

I also wore it out the day after on my day off for my dad and daughter day so it was lovely to finally be able to show it to my dad. To say he loved it is a massive understatement.

This is definitely one of my favourite fashionable buys in a long, LONG time. It’s so unique in every way and even has distressed sleeves and at the bottom of the cardigan itself.

What do you think of the rainbow trend that has appeared? Do you love it, or hate it? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, I hope you guys have had a great week so far and it continues that way!

March Wish List ’18

Another month has come and gone and yes, I know February is a short month anyway BUT BLOODY HELL! I can’t believe it is March! I’m excited though for spring this year, which I’ll be writing a blog post about VERY soon! 😀

This months wish list was very hard to write as at the moment there isn’t really anything I’m wanting for. I’ve made a naughty purchase this month already, which I’m hoping to also write a blog post about soon!

Until then, you’ll just have to deal with my Marsh wish list post! I hope you enjoy. 🙂

  • Honey Punch Oversized Cardigan In Rainbow Stripe – (link)

If any regular readers have been watching my blog since before Christmas you’ll have seen that I was lusting after a duplicate cardigan of the rainbow one from Lazy Oaf. When Lazy Oaf brought out their version it went crazy online and sold out super quick. I was gutted I never got the chance to even contemplate buying one, but for £75 HELL TO THE NO. I then went out looking for fakes from China… Which I don’t really want either. On a random search on ASOS I found this awesome one by Honey Punch! It’s distressed on the bottom and oversized. I actually prefer this one to the Lazy Oaf one and it’s half of the price! Sadly it’s currently sold out in the size I am/want so I’ll be waiting for it to come back in stock and as soon as it does, I’ll be ordering! Since starting my office job I LIVE in cardigans now and I’d love to rock a rainbow one to work.

  • Pandora You and Me Ring – (link)

This ring came out as part of the Valentine’s Day collection, which is around the time I noticed it on the website. It’s so gorgeous but at first it did make me wonder if it was an engagement ring… It’s not. 😛 I really, REALLY want this ring but I’m trying to save money right now and just buy things that don’t cost much or things I REALLY want. If that makes sense… Either way I was tempted to pick this up this month as a treat to myself but I’m going to wait. Mine and Dane’s 5th anniversary will be here before I know it and I know he wants to get me a piece of jewellery in the future so we shall see what happens.

  • New Look Tall Red Ditsy Floral Soft Touch Skater Dress – (link)

Okay I probably don’t class as being “tall” (I’m 5’5 so I’m “average”) but I’m finding lately when I buy dresses they can come up short, which is frustrating! I want to start buying tall skirts and dresses if possible and of course if they look good. I would love some new dresses for work as although I’m loving what I have right now, I do want some fresh pieces for the spring and summer months. I love wearing red and this looks gorgeous for the money! I may not get it this month but I’ll keep my eyes peeled on it for the future.

  • Orange: The Complete Collection: 1 Manga (link)

I love manga so every month whenever a new volume comes out of a series I’m reading, I’ll order! But this month I want to pick up something new to read, Orange being one of them! I’ve heard nothing but good things about both the anime and the manga. I would buy both collection 1 and 2 but I want to try and keep being good, so I’ll only order this one for now and get the next one next month.

  • New Look Black Crepe Scuba Pinafore Dress – (link)

Again, another dress for work. I’m really into pinafore dresses at the moment but I haven’t really had a good look for anything right now! I really want one for work to team up with my long sleeved striped t-shirts! I love the look of this one from New Look as it looks so comfortable. I’d team it up with tights and a nice pair of flats for a chilled look. I wouldn’t say no to a thick chunky cardigan too when days are a little on the chilly side!

  • Sass & Belle Lima Llama Trinket Dish (link)

I really NEED a trinket dish for my jewellery at the moment as now I’m wearing it daily it just pretty much sits on my dressing table, which isn’t the nicest way to treat Pandora and Thomas Sabo now, is it? I had my eye on a Pusheen trinket dish last month and recently spied a cute bunny one from Asda, BUT llamas are kind of doing it for me right now… When me and Dane got the house we went out and bought little bits and pieces for the house, one of these being a llama planter. Nearly 2 years later and I STILL haven’t put anything in it. Instead it sits empty of my bedroom shelf. Last month I picked us up a new washing basket, which has llamas all over it! So why not add to this obvious llama themed for upstairs by getting a trinket dish? I just want something to keep my bracelets, necklace and ring on really.

So those are all the items on my wish list this month! I could have included more manga but I’ve already ordered it/plan to now I’m paid!

What items do you have on your wish lists this month? 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 weekend.

Bikini Wish List Wednesday

I know I usually schedule posts for every 3 days (unless like recently where I was a lazy bitch and left a new post for a week…) BUT I wanted to do another wish list Wednesday post before I go on holiday.

I’m in desperate need of a new bikini and whilst the Iron Fist one I currently own is amazing and does a great job when wearing it, I would like something new that reflects my personality… I know that sounds weird, but hear me out throughout the post as to what I mean!

I also wanted a new bikini because whilst I loved and felt comfortable wearing my Iron Fist one on holiday, I didn’t feel that it stood out and I really want one that will! Especially when going down to the beach, which I hope to do more of on this holiday.

There is a sort of theme around all the bikinis I’ve added to this list too, I am aware of that after putting the image together. 😛 Enjoy the wish list!

  • Boux Avenue Cabaret Triangle Bikini Top – £28.00 (link)
  • Boux Avenue Cabaret Bikini Briefs – £16.00 (link)

Sadly (as you can see) this bikini isn’t cheap. It’s actually quite expensive for what it looks like from the pictures, BUT IT’S PURPLE AND LOOKS ALMOST HOLOGRAPHIC! I also don’t see many bikini tops that allow you to buy your bra size as apposed to UK dress size or S, M or L. This would be a nice bikini to wear around the pool at my house, as apposed to the beach, but it would also be really nice to wear with a pair of shorts and a sheer jumper. It is expensive though for what it is and due to this I’d want to not only have a look at in person in one of their stores, but I’d also want to try it on before buying. I think I’ll wait for this to go in the sale though. £44.00 is a lot for a bikini in my mind…

  • Soft Kitty Clothing Mermaid Bikini – £15.00 (link)

I really love the look of this bikini as it reminds me of Ariel from The Little Mermaid but again, it’s that mermaid print that I love so much appearing again. This is the cheapest bikini on this list and it looks really good quality too! The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it states not to swim in pools with chlorine, which I understand but at the same time that kind of sucks. I would wear the bikini top during sunbathing as it can be a bandeau but I don’t know that for sure. I can’t see this being a bikini I pick up, but if any of the ones on this list aren’t available before the holiday then this could be a last resort.

  • River Island Mermaid Metallic Bandeau Bikini – £16.00 (link)

This is a bikini set I’ve had my eye on for a while now but it always seems to run out of stock or is sold out in sales. It’s only available on ASOS now but for £16.00 this is a decent price in my mind for a River Island bikini! I’ve been after a bandeau for a while to be honest for sunbathing in, as well as going out and about. As you can tell I have a metallic and holographic theme going on with these bikinis and this one is such a gorgeous petrol colour!

Missguided Blue Metallic Harness Bikini – £25.00 down to £12.50 (link)

There seems to be a trend this year with harnesses on bikinis and whilst I love it, I find it may also be impractical when tanning due to lines being left behind everywhere. I wouldn’t wear this for sunbathing in, it would definitely be one for going to the beach or shopping. I love the bottoms more than anything as they look so flattering and comfortable! These are so cheap in the sale that a part of me feels like ordering them now. 😛 But I won’t, I’ll wait to buy the bikini set I’m talking about last on this post.

  • Boohoo Manhattan Hologram Triangle Tie Bikini – £18.00 (link)

I want a bog standard holographic bikini and this is probably the nicest one I have found, which is from Boohoo. They sell loads of stuff like this on eBay but I don’t trust the quality of eBay sellers stock. You can’t go wrong with Boohoo though and for £18.00 you can’t go wrong really. I’d wear this to go swimming in the pool, the beach and even to sunbathe in. So we shall see!

  • Killstar Arabella Halter Top – £19.99 (link)
  • Killstar Arabella Posing Shorts – £14.99 (link)

I’m saving my favourite item on this list until last! If there has been a bikini I have really fallen in love with, it’s definitely this one by Killstar. I was actually meant to order this and a dress with the same pattern when I got paid a couple of weeks ago, but I left it and bought a PS Vita instead… Priorities! 😛 BUT I will either be ordering this when I get paid next month, or September just before the holiday. Probably August though… 😛 I love mermaid printed things thanks to Black Milk Clothing and their gorgeous mermaid print leggings, which I own two pairs of (you can read and look at me wearing the one pair here) and love to death! I always take those with me whenever I’ve visited Fuerteventura, so why not wear a bikini with the same look to it? This one just looks sexy yet comfortable and flattering at the same time. I was worried this would actually cost more but when you compare the price of it alongside the Boux Avenue one, it’s a bargain really! This definitely isn’t a bikini I would wear when watching to catch the sun and tan and I’m sure you can see why! It’d be more something to wear on hot days whilst walking around with (again!) some shorts or even my Black Milk mermaid leggings. I just need this bikini in my life! 😛

So those are the bikinis I’m lusting after at the moment! There are so many things I want to buy and wear for the holiday and whilst I’m not low on funds at the moment, I don’t WANT to be low on funds either.

We shall see… I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing a haul of what goodies I get for the holiday.

Do you have your eye on any bikinis? If so please share them with me! 😀 Also, are you going on holiday this summer? Let me know where you’re going in the comments.

Until next time, take care all everyone and I hope you’re having a great week so far.

May Wish List ’17

I swear this months wish list should be called “holographic/metallic wish list!” as most of the items on here are just that. That and holiday related items too. As I mentioned in one of my posts recently, me and Dane are going on holiday this year which is super exciting! I didn’t mean to find so much holographic and holiday related stuff to be honest… I kind of just ended up stumbling upon stuff out of boredom last week… Oops! 😛 Oh well, it makes for some reading today for you guys. ^_^

  • New Look Turquoise Metallic Lattice Longline Bikini Top – £16.99 (link)
  • New Look Turquoise Metallic Tie Side Bikini Bottoms – £12.99 (link)

I discovered this bikini recently through a Google search whilst looking for holographic/metallic bikinis. I don’t really need a new bikini but I wouldn’t mind picking up a new one for my holiday in September. This is gorgeous and is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before to be honest. Not only does the design of this look unique and have a grunge style to it (which I LOVE!) but it’s also a beautiful turquoise metallic colour which is the perfect holiday and beach colour. Although this is gorgeous and probably my perfect bikini for Fuerteventura it’s kind of impractical for sunbathing in due to the lattice design. Due to this I’d probably use this mostly for popping down to the beach and on very hot days to the shops. Of course I would pick up both the top and bottoms. I’ll definitely be buying these on payday next week so I don’t miss out the chance of getting them!

  • Your Lie in April Part 2 Limited Edition Blu-ray – £44.99 (link)

I LOVE Your Lie in April and especially around the start of the year when I first started watching the anime series, as well as reading the manga. Since then I’ve finished the manga and been awaiting part 2 of the blu-ray to come out and be added to my collection. I haven’t actually finished watching the anime yet as I wanted to binge watch it all on the blu-rays with Dane, so of course I am really excited to be able to finally do this!

  • New Look Silver Holographic Mini Backpack – £17.99 (link)

I don’t NEEEEED a new backpack but it never hurts to add a new addition to your collection… Does it? I’ve owned backpacks similar to this from New Look before and they’re definitely some of the best ones I’ve owned to be honest. They’re comfortable, look great and are a bargain for how much wear you get from them. I really am on a holographic kick at the moment, like a holographic magpie so I couldn’t help but eye up this backpack. I’d love to try and pick it up in the sale (if it goes into sale obviously) before I go on holiday, but we’ll see what happens. I’d want to try and cutesy this bag up by popping a couple of badges on it and some cute Japanese gatchapon keyrings.

  • Truffle Collection Truffle Flatform Holographic Sliders – £14.00 (link)

Again I was looking for some holiday ideas and the first thing I thought to search for was (yet again!) holographic themed items. I found this flatform sandals and I’m unsure what I think of them to be honest. I don’t love them enough to buy them as soon as possible for the holiday, but I don’t know if I hate them enough to not warrant myself buying them at all. I would love another pair of shoes to take with me to wear around the house, to the beach and in the evenings as something light but I have my flip flops to do that. I’m definitely more of a Vans slip on trainer and flip flop girl when it comes to going to Fuerteventura. If these went to a dirt cheap price I’d definitely pick them up as they’d be great to wear casual in the day and dressed up in the evening a little. I think what puts me off the most is that they’re white. Black would have been SOOOO much better!

  • Forever 21 Holographic Windbreaker Jacket – £24.00 (link)

When I saw this jacket it just reminded me of the 90’s and of the style of jackets my mom and brother used to wear… But not holographic obviously. 😛 For the final time on this blog post I’ll be talking about something holographic… I do apologise about how much stuff there is on here that’s either that or metallic. Again due to the holiday I was having a look around to see what else I could find on Forever 21’s website to buy in the future and this jacket looks cool! I’d want to pick it up to wear over the summer, as well as for the holiday. As cool as the turquoise colour is I don’t know if the jacket itself would look good or even feel comfortable. I’d want to go in store and have a look at this first before buying it, or at least read a handful of reviews.

  • Good Smile Company K-ON! Yui Hirasawa Nendoroid – Prices vary depending where you buy.

Finally we come to the last item on this list and it’s one that me and Dane both want to try and find next month! We were really naughty this month Nendoroid wise and bought quite a lot in one go. We’re part of a Nendoroid group on Facebook and someone on there was selling all of her K-ON! collection so erm… We bought all of the ones we needed. We picked up four out of five she was selling which means the only girl we need now is Yuki! She’s the main character of K-ON! and is Dane’s favourite character. We’ll try and keep our eyes peeled for someone else on that group to sell a Yui Nendoroid or we’ll end up buying a new or second hand one from Japan. These Nendoroid figures came out years ago, not long after they started being made so they’re not as easy to get a hold of now, but this being said they’re cheaper.

So that’s my wish list for this month! I really need to stop spending money now and put it in savings to have towards the holiday. I don’t really want anymore manga at the moment so I’ll definitely be saving money not buying those. I’ll also be saving money not buying much else too because besides the stuff on this list I don’t want anything. 😛

What items do you have on your wish lists? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time take care all and I hope you’re having a great week.

February Wish List 17

I’m still on a “spending ban” so I don’t actually know why I’m making this post… 😛 I’m not going to lie, my wish list posts are probably my favourite to write as I like to share some awesome new stuff that I want to add to my home, as well as to my lipstick and geeky collections.

So sod the spending ban! I’ll continue to do these posts until I don’t want to write them anymore! There won’t be anything too special on the list this month however… Just stuff I want to buy and cannot. Le sigh.

  • ASOS Reclaimed Vintage Black Sabbath Long Sleeve Top – £35.00 (link)

I recently discovered this piece thanks to Zoe London as she bought it herself and was talking about it in a video. To be honest though a lot of fashion YouTuber’s have bought this piece lately and it’s just made me want to get it myself more and more. Sadly it is out of stock at the moment… I’m hoping it’ll come back in stock in my size so I can erm… Maybe order one… ONLY A MAYBE CALM YO’ TITS!

  • Good Smile Company Deadpool Nendoroid – £42.99 (link)

As regular readers will know me and Dane love and collect Nendoroid’s and from the day it was announced we knew we would be getting the Deadpool one. I mean look how cute he is! We were planning on buying him this month ready for what we thought was his release date at the end of the month. Sadly that isn’t until next month… We can still pre-order him though as we intending on getting him as a Valentine’s treat to ourselves. 😛 What an excuse eh???

  • Disturbia Kiss My Ass Acid Wash Shorts – WAS £29.95 – NOW £22.95 (link)

I’ve wanted these jeans for quite a while now after I found someone selling them on Depop. I didn’t actually know they were still available to buy from the actual store until recently when I decided to check out their sales. I would love a new pair of denim shorts as I haven’t bought myself a new pair for quite some time now. I’d pair them up with geeky t-shirts and tuck them in. I doubt I’ll get these due to spending ban, but they’ll stay on my wish list for as long as possible.

  • Ray Ban Glasses – £98.00 (link)

I went for an eye test the weekend just gone after about two years of going without one and sadly my eyes have worsened, which means that I need to get a new set of lenses… Probably frames too it depends. I looked for ages in the opticians that I went into for a new pair and the one Ray Ban pair I liked were bloody expensive and the second pair I liked were nice but seemed really cheap. I had a mooch online and found Glasses Direct who sell designer frames at really good prices! They also sort out your lenses for you too, including thinning them down, which is what mine will need doing to them… Due to the blindness and all. I’ll hopefully get some soon but we shall see! I do really like my current frames so I don’t know why I should change them… A lot of people don’t want to put new lenses into them though which is annoying!

  • Nintendo 3DS Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World – £34.99 (link)

If there’s a Nintendo character that I really like (apart from Pokemon of course…) it’s definitely Yoshi! He’s just so damn cute and adorable and I just wish he was real. I especially love the little woolly Yoshi that was realised to coincide with the wii U version of the game a few years ago and really wanted to get one myself to put in my bedroom at the time. NOW the 3DS is finally getting its own version of this game which is really exciting! I gave the demo a go recently and really did enjoy playing it, so much so I’d love to pick it up today if possible as that’s when it comes out! 😛

  • Pusheen Colouring Book – £9.99 (link)

I’ve been after this colouring book FOR AGGGGGES as I love Pusheen so much! I guess I just want something I can faff about with and just relax with instead of playing games or reading, as sometimes I’m not always in the mood to do either of those. This being said, surely this colouring book with mostly consist of grey? 😛

So that was my wish list for February! Although I’m on a spending ban there are probably a couple of things off of the list that I’ll end up buying due to needing them (glasses), Valentine’s Day gift (Deadpool Nendoroid) and because I fancy a new game (YOSHIIIII!) but we shall see… We shall see.

What are on your wish lists for the month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

September ’16 Wish List

Gosh I really struggled to get this wish list put together this month and I really don’t know why! I did feel like I was lusting after more things coming up to September but alas that doesn’t appear to be the case.

I managed to scrape a list together mind and I can actually see September being a very naughty month for me… I would have included the Kat Von D items I’m hoping to pick up from Debenhams mid September but I want to have a separate post for that.

But for now here is my wish list for September, woohoo!

 photo September 2016 Wish List_zpswkbnq9hz.jpg

  • Beauty Bakerie Matte Lip Whip in She’s Just Jelly – £15.95 (link)

As regular readers of my blog will know I love wearing lipsticks and especially liquid lipsticks. Although I love my Jeffree Star Cosmetics liquid lipsticks I am always open to trying other brands. I have heard nothing but great things about Beauty Bakerie and would love to give their matte lip whips a go! I’ve had my eye on She’s Just Jelly which is a lovely dark purple shade, which will be perfect for autumn and winter.

  • Oh K! Cherry Blossom Hand Cream – £6.50 (link)

I’ve heard quite a bit about Oh K! recently from various bloggers and it looks like such an adorable brand, very kawaii! I have wanted something from the range for quite a while now but I hadn’t quite seen anything I liked the look of until now. I love hand cream and can never get enough of it, I put this down to my eczema… But how adorable is the packaging for this hand cream??? It’s an adorable panda and I would make sure to keep reusing the pot after using the hand cream up. Plus it has a cherry blossom scent, can’t get any better than that eh? I’ll be keeping my eye on this and picking it up when I need a treat.

  • Blink-182 California Album – £4.99 (link)

I have listened to this album already… Many times in fact and I love it so much! I haven’t listened to an album like this for a long time where I just want to keep listening to it, so I’m really pleased about that as you may have guessed. The band just seem better off without Tom DeLonge and instead with Matt Skiba. I always preferred +44 because their music just wasn’t kiddy and silly all the time. If you loved +44 like I did then you will love Blink-182 now Tom has gone!  I don’t know if I’ll buy this as a CD, instead I might just pick it up on iTunes. I can’t believe how cheap CD’s are now!

  • Soft Kitty Clothing Pastel Pika Dress – £17.00 (link)

I’m a sucker for lycra clothing, usually Black Milk Clothing but 1. they’re super expensive and 2. they haven’t yet released a Pokemon collection. I recently discovered Soft Kitty Clothing through a seller on Depop and decided to check out the clothing on their website for myself. Well there really are some little gems on there, including this dress. I’m a massive Pokemon nerd so this dress is really up my street, and at £17.00 it’s a complete bargain too. I don’t know if I’ll ever buy this to be honest as whilst I am brave enough to wear all sorts out and about, I don’t know if I would be able to feel confident in this dress… I guess teamed up with some nice shoes and a cool jacket I could pull it off… We shall see. I would love if they made an Eeveelutions or Mew dress.

  • Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask – £10.57 (link)

If you haven’t heard or seen people talking about this mask on blogs and YouTube then you need to crawl up from under your rock and get searching. This is a Korean face mask that everyone seems to be trying at the moment. It’s a mask that reacts with oxygen to foam up and expand, and let me tell you it looks really cool! I’ll pop the link to where Bunny over at grav3yardgirl tried it. I really want to give this a go as not only does it look cool but it actually sounds like an awesome face mask to try.

  • Village Candle Wax Melts in Sugarplum Fairy – £3.90 (link)

Village Candle are a brand I haven’t tried before but Dane has and they are beautiful candles. Just as good as Yankee Candle’s to be honest. Near to where I live someone was selling these in a store so I got to smell pretty much all the scents. Sadly when I went to go and purchase this she had left and was only selling online from then on. Was a real shame to be honest but meh at least I can buy from her online. Sugarplum Fairy is a scent that I can’t really describe… All I can say about it is that it smells sweet and reminds me of something I would have smelt and fallen in love with as a child. I’m burning wax tarts like crazy of late so I would love to add these to my collection in the future.

  • Build A Bear Pokemon Eevee Set – £48.50 (link)

I have saved the best until last for this post and this is definitely something I will be buying as soon as I am paid (in 6 days!!!!!) as I really want it! I heard about the rumor of an Eevee joining the Build A Bear store but I didn’t quite believe it… That is until pictures leaked. Due to all the leaks and excitement around this teddy Build A Bear decided to release it early. AHHH! At the time of writing this post the Eevee came out today, and has already sold out in America. I know it’s expensive but there is a reason for that. You get the Eevee, two outfits, a voice box inside so it can speak and a limited edition Pokemon card exclusively for Build A Bear. I really want to order this right now, but I’m skint so I won’t be able to. Plus it’s now out of stock in the UK… Sad times. This is so damn cute! I’d end up keeping it downstairs in the living room to snuggle into whilst watching TV with Dane. I’m such a big kid, I don’t even care!

So that was my wish list for September! What goodies do you have your eye on this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

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

February ’16 Wish List

We’re down one month of 2016 already! Only 11 more to go and it’ll be Christmas and New Year all over again. 😛 I was a little spend happy throughout January, so I need to watch my money this month and be good. Lipsticks won’t help me buy a house, sadly. This being said, there are a few bits and pieces I am still after this month, and it never hurts to lust after things, does it?

  • Benefit The POREfessional: Instant Wipeout Masks – £24.50 (link)

Benefit have a few new goodies coming out for their POREfessional range, one of them being the Matte Rescue gel, which I was so excited to try and pick up! These are little face masks which you can use all over the face. They’re like nose strip style shape and size, BUT they aren’t pore strips. They’re a liquid face mask which you can apply to the nose, chin, forehead, and cheeks, as they have up to 10 uses from what the woman told me on the Benefit counter. I would have bought some when I was there the weekend, but they’re not cheap and these will be a product I’ll pick up as a real treat to use once every fortnight. I don’t really have issues with my pores, I just have an oily t-zone. My boyfriend would probably love these mind. I want to look into these more though, they sound cool.

  • New Look Black Turtle Neck Cold Shoulder Jumper – £22.99 (link)

I’m a huge fan of the cold shoulder look on long sleeved, black garments and I REALLY DON’T KNOW WHY! Is it a trend from the 90’s that I love? Or grunge? What is it people, can anyone tell me? I have a black long sleeved t-shirt from New Look that shares the cold shoulder look, and it’s one of my favourite black t-shirts to wear now. So why not add a jumper into my wardrobe to throw on when it’s nippy? Not only do I love the cold shoulder look, but I happen to love turtle necks too. I think it’s the whole wrapping up warm aspect for me. I wish I had gone in New Look and had a butchers for this when I was in town last weekend, but I never thought of it at the time. I would love to pick this up though to rock with a skirt, some denim shorts, or a light wash skinny fit jean. The Dr Martens in this wish list would look great with them too, as well as my Jake Dr Martens (post about those here)

  • ASOS Swing Dress In Star Print With Eyelet Detail – £15.00 down from £30.00 (link)

I wouldn’t have known this dress existed if it wasn’t for Hannah Gale, who recently featured it on her blog, as well as one of her vlogs. She looks gorgeous in it and I loved how she teamed it up with a belt and some boots (you can view how she dressed it up here). I don’t know how the hell I would dress it up if I bought it, but I’d rock it all over the spring and summer months. I showed it to my boyfriend and he isn’t sure on it, but that being said I will keep my eye on it and see how I feel. It looks beautiful on Hannah, but it might not look as nice on me. :’) It just look so airy, and the perfect dress to wear if you want to look great, but feel like shit.

  • Dr Martens Serena Faux Fur Lined Boot – £110.00 (link)

I have wanted a pair of these boots for years… Since before I even met Dane and I met him three years ago this year (God that’s flown by!). I’ve found a pair cheaper on eBay, and although I would jump at the chance to buy them usually and still say, “BUT IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!” I need to be a little more realistic now. I need to save money, and I still have my Jake Dr Martens, which I only got in September when I finished university. I love those Dr Martens… BUT yellow Dr Martens with silly faces on aren’t always practical… Especially when I just want to rock some black clothing and look like the inner goth that I am. 😛 I shall see how I feel in the future, but Dr Martens want to be something I rock more this year and onward. They’re amazing boots, and a shoe brand that I really adore.

  • Marvel Deadpool Men’s Varsity Jacket – £29.99 (link)

I wanted to save the best until last, and it’s hard to choose between this and the last item! As everyone knows, the new Deadpool movie is out next week and let me tell you, I am so fucking excited! I have been a fan of Ryan Reynolds for 10 years, and Deadpool is my favourite Marvel character too. I came across this having a nose for some present ideas for my boyfriend and have fallen in love. I don’t really need anymore jackets, but this one is just too nice to pass up. I love wearing my boyfriends jackets, they’re just so comfortable and as this is a man’s jacket I could get away with buying a small size and rocking it with some skinny fit jeans, and boots or Vans. It isn’t expensive either for an official licensed product!

  • Pokemon Yellow on 2DS and 3DS – Price TBC

This is the item I saved until last. The only thing I know about it is that it is due to come out on the Nintendo eShop on 27th February, the same date the original three Pokemon games (Red, Blue, and Yellow) came out 20 years ago! I don’t know how much they’ll be, I imagine something like £10-£20. Anymore than that would be a bit of a rip off to be honest… I will be getting Pokemon Yellow, as this was always my favourite to play. I know my boyfriend is going to get one too, so we can play and trade Pokemon together. Anyone who isn’t going to be buying these bad boys, WHY NOT? I’m hella excited.

So that was my wish list for this month. I need to save money so the only things I can really see me buying is the Deadpool jacket, and Pokemon Yellow. Two nerdy things I am super excited for this month.

What goodies are my readers after this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and hope you’re having a great week.
