October Favourites ’21

In the blink of an eye, October has flown by and I don’t know how I feel about that! xD October wasn’t the best month for me in regards to my mental health but the end of October, start of November has been really nice so far. Albeit with cute games coming out this week and some time off work with Dane… 😛

Of course I won’t go too much into my personal issues but instead I’m excited to share how exciting the first week of November has been for me! Not only did the Animal Crossing: New Horizons update and DLC (Happy Home Paradise) come out, BUT so did indie games Unpacking and To The Rescue! came out too, with the latter being a game I backed on Kickstarter. So, my week off mainly consisted of playing games with Dane, doing things around the house and catching up with people. It was great and very much needed. I’ll be talking about the games on a separate blog post at some point this month, so keep eyes peeled for that!

For now however, I want to share my monthly favourites with you guys! I hope you enjoy this months favourites.

Favourite Beauty Product – Badedas 3 in 1 Original Indulgent Bath Gel.

This is something my mom bought for me and Dane Christmas 2020. I’ve always loved the smell of Badedas as it was always something we had on the side of the bath when I lived at home. It smells really fresh, masculine and gorgeous, plus it always reminds me of my dad so it has a nice comforting/familiar feeling to it. I used some of this throughout the winter period at the start of 2021 and stopped when spring and summer hit. Now the weather is colder again, I’ve brought it out to use not only as a bath gel, but as a shower gel too! When I was poorly with flu later on in October, this helped clear my sinuses somewhat, as well as comfort me with the scent. I know it’s a bath gel both me and Dane used too with the flu (I passed it onto Dane…), so it’s definitely good it being in our cupboard! It’s a bloody huge bottle and it feels like it’s lasting forever! This isn’t something I’d buy for myself to be honest, but I did enjoy receiving it as a gift last year.

Favourite Film – Violet Evergarden: The Movie.

For any regular readers of my blog, you’ll know I LOVE Violet Evergarden and have done since it first came to Netflix in 2018. Violet is about a young girl/woman who has fought in the war as a child and comes out to be “adopted” by a post office owner. She begins training to become a ghost-writer and the feelings and emotions she lost during the end of the war slowly start to come back through helping people by writing their letters. Violet is also pained by the meaning of some words spoken to her during the war. I don’t want to say too much for fear of spoilers, but the movie basically ends a lot of questions that long time viewers will have been asking/wondering. It definitely answered these for me and Dane and my emotions were all over the place! We’re still asking questions after the movie, but we hope this won’t be the end of Violet Evergarden’s story and only the beginning of a new one!

Favourite TV Show – Squid Game.

Okay, now I know you’re either thinking… “YAY someone else who loves Squid Game!” or, “Urgh, someone else who loves Squid Game?” and of course I loved it. I heard all the hype around it on Instagram and Twitter and wanted to watch it before spoilers started to show, which I thankfully missed. Damn, Squid Game is a journey and it was one me and Dane completed over two evenings of watching nonstop. I don’t want to share spoilers, even if the majority of people HAVE seen it. It’s basically a Battle Royale style show about people competing in life or death situations to win a lot of money. It’s really good to be honest and much better watched in subbed (subtitles), not dubbed (voice over in your language), which I know a lot of people have watched it in.

Favourite Game – Dorfromantik.

This is a game that Dane introduced me to fairly recently and since then when I need a moment to relax and not think about stuff for a while, I pop this on. Dorfromantik is a game where you need to build a town/village with puzzle style pieces. Pieces will differ, whether they be pieces of river, railway track, farm, trees and homes. You need to pop pieces in certain places to make up targets, such as fifty trees altogether, or ten homes, etc. It’s such a relaxing game and I really do love to play it!

Just a few of my favourite things…

Black Milk Clothing Ghouls Night In photoshoot with Dane.

I want to say a massive thank you to Dane for doing the mini photoshoot on Halloween for my last blog post, which was all about Black Milk Clothing and their Ghouls Night In collection for Halloween. I was sick the week of Halloween with flu, as was Dane so we both felt a little sorry for ourselves. My original plans for the photoshoot I wanted to do was to venture out into the area(s) nearby and take photos in autumnal weather… Because why not! Alas, due to how we were feeling, those plans didn’t go ahead. Instead Dane suggested we grab some Halloween themed props and take photos in our office. We were able to change our smart bulb to various different colours to make the photos look better and personally, I feel like they came out amazing! I’ve received so many lovely compliments and comments in regards to the photos, which has made me so happy! I can’t wait to do more fun photoshoots in the future! You can read all about the Halloween collection here.

Rae Dunn boo ghost candle.

I fell in love with some of the Halloween merchandise offerings that TK Maxx brought out this year, including the massive DW Home ghost candle I bought in September (you can see it in my September favourites here). I’ve been on the hunt for the Rae Dunn boo ghost candle for the same amount of time and in October I found one at a decent price on eBay, so I ended up snagging one. I started burning it on Halloween and it has a lovely toasted marshmallow scent to it, but it isn’t very strong… Which is a shame. I mostly wanted it for the jar though, which I’m probably going to use for fake flowers. 😛

Halloween nails!

Guys you know me by now (well, I hope anyway!), I bloody love Halloween! Last yeah my Halloween nails were ON POINT and gave Beetlejuice vibes. This year I decided to go for orange and black and white stripes instead after getting some major inspiration from Pinterest. I wasn’t going to bother getting the stripes as I hadn’t booked in the extra time with my nail technician and instead I was going to get white with black glitter. However, my nail tech being the amazing person she is did it anyway and at no extra charge! She is such a star and I honestly always look forward to my nail appointments. I’m currently rocking glittery purple and green nails… Halloween isn’t done for me yet. 😛

BarleyBlossom Glow In The Dark Animal Crossing Halloween Timmy & Tommy T-Shirt.

Finally, I wanted to show you guys the Halloween Animal Crossing t-shirt I bought by BarleyBlossom. I wore this t-shirt on Halloween, as well as earlier in the week and it’s SO BLOODY COMFY! As you can see, Timmy and Tommy are dressed up as ghosts for Halloween. The white fabric glows in the dark, so when in a dark room the Nook brothers look spooky as fuck! I was planning to write a blog post all about my purchase, but when I was due to, BarelyBlossom was taking the Halloween goods down from the store, so unfortunately I didn’t see the point in sharing the item at the time if no one could buy. 😦 This being said, at the time of writing this (4th November) BarelyBlossom has listed two Molly pieces (t-shirt and sweater) where she is dressed up as a bat, so make sure to go and check it out!

So, there we have it guys! All my favourites from October! Honestly it really did go by quickly and I partially hope November doesn’t go as quickly. I’m not ready for Christmas yet… xD

How was October for you guys? What were your favourites from the month? PLUS are you all playing Animal Crossing now? 😛 Make sure to let me know in the comments below.

Until next time guys, take care and see you soon!

Black Milk Clothing Ghouls Night In

Tim Burton Halloween GIF

Image taken from GIPHY

First of all, HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone!

I haven’t written about Black Milk Clothing for a while now (since April!) so, this post is definitely long overdue. The Ghouls Night In collection came out mid September and I couldn’t pass up the chance of adding some spooky pieces in my wardrobe, especially as I recently had a sort out and made room in my wardrobe for some new pieces!

I was really good (in my opinion…) and only picked up three pieces initially… But Black Milk Clothing did do some restocks on some of the sold out pieces from the Ghouls Night In collection, including one piece I was really after, so I couldn’t not snap them up. So, I picked up four pieces altogether.

First thing I want to say here before I show off all the goodies I ordered is how quickly they arrived! Since directly starting to place my orders through Black Milk Clothing last year, my orders have usually taken around a month to arrive to me via Australia Post/Royal Mail. However, the two orders I placed from the Ghouls Night In collection arrived in a week! I don’t know if this is due to Black Milk Clothing wanting to ensure orders arrived in time for Halloween (as a lot of stuff they only shipped out after 5th October), or if delivery times from Australia have improved since COVID began last year.

Either way I’ve been so excited to share with you all what I ordered! Black Milk Clothing has somewhat helped me with my body image the past year and has also given my wardrobe a much needed kick up the arse, that it definitely deserved.

Eventually I hope to do a massive Black Milk Clothing collection post where I can show off all of the pieces I own, as well as share some of the grails I hope to find and buy in the future. Would you guys love to see a collection post in the future? Make sure to let me know what you think.

Now, onto the pieces I ordered from the Ghouls Night In collection!

Thought I’d throw a funny photo in from the shoot we did… 😛

  • Venomous Bishop Skater Dress (link)

This has fast turned into one of my favourite Black Milk Clothing pieces to wear! It’s the perfect all around dress, whether it be for work, days out, or even evenings out. I’m yet to really talk about the new bishop style, which has also fast turned into one of my favourite style of dresses from Black Milk Clothing to buy!

The bishop style in skater, (which is my go to in dresses) has gathered sleeves and even has pockets! I didn’t quite realise until writing this post that the reason behind the name of the style comes from the style of the gathered sleeves. The style first came out through The Blissful Life collection in the Tartan Magpie dress, which I snapped up too.

The print on this dress is a snake and from what I can tell the snakes head is only on the chest, with the rest of its body wrapped around the rest of the dress, which I love! I didn’t realise from the photos alone on the website that this is how the design was. The dress itself is incredibly comfortable as it’s made from Black Milk Clothing’s lightweight fleece-lined toastie fabric, which is perfect for the colder months!

I wore this piece to the office a couple of weeks ago and received nothing but compliments on it. It’s such a gorgeous piece and one that isn’t too in your face either. When I wear this in my own time I’m planning to wear with my Dr Martens boots to give it an edgier look! This dress would be great to wear at a gig… Maybe My Chemical Romance next year when they come to the UK? 😀

This piece is now sold out, as it was part of the 7 day unlimited and then limited after. They did also bring out a pair of velvet high waisted leggings with the same print, but these have now sold out too. At the time of writing this (22/10/2021), there will be the same print but blue brought out in the new collection, The Fast Life, so if you missed out before, maybe it’s your chance to snag that design again! There will be a dress, leggings and a sports bra!

This photo was so much fun to take! It took us a while to get the angle and the lighting right, but it was definitely worth it in the end!

  • Good Spirits Bishop Skater Dress (link)

This is a dress I fell in love with when Black Milk Clothing announced/showed it during the promotional stages before release. However, I kept umming and ahhing as to whether or not I should actually buy it, mostly due to already owning the Ghosties Longline Evil Tee Dress from the previous Halloween collection. This being said, I didn’t jump straight in with ordering from this collection, as the two pieces I picked up (bishop dresses) were 7 day unlimited, which meant I had the choice as to whether or not I actually wanted to pick the items up before they went to limited. In the end I went for it! The print is absolutely adorable, it’s in the bishop style that I love and it means I can get my spook on throughout the year and not wear out my one dress all the time!

The design on this dress is pretty simple to be honest. It’s a black dress with kawaii ghosts all over, pulling all sorts of faces from happy, shocked, angry, and the usual “boo” face you tend to get from ghosts. It’s a cute and playful design and one I’ve made sure to wear before I break up for work for my week off next week and I’m especially going to be wearing it next week during my week off work!

The same comments on the style applies here, as it did to the Venomous dress, the bishop style is gorgeous and I’ve been praising it to Sharkies (name for Black Milk Clothing community) constantly!

They did also bring out a hoodie jumper with the same print on it, which was something I contemplated getting instead of the dress. I didn’t bother however due to price, it was a limited piece AND the hoodie didn’t have pockets! Who buys a hoodie without pockets?!

  • Bats Purple Suspender Hosiery (link)

This is a definite item I wasn’t 100% sure if I wanted or not. I wanted the black variant of these hosiery but they sold out really quickly, I’ll talk about them a little more towards the end of this post…

I decided to get them as I do love me some suspender hosiery and having a funky purple pair with bats on was something I couldn’t really resist! These are limited too and now sold out, so they won’t be coming back anytime soon. The hosiery from Black Milk Clothing are really thick and OSFA (one size fits all), I’m an L in Black Milk Clothing (I do own M in some older pieces too) and these are very generous in size, so although I don’t know for sure how big these could go up to, I would say a size XXL might be okay!

This is my second pair of Black Milk Clothing hosiery and I love them! I’m already planning to wear them with my Disturbia strange oversized skater dress as the colours and design of the dress shout Beetlejuice to me! I’ve also seen a black dress from Black Milk Clothing I’d love to pick up in the future as I saw someone on Instagram pair this dress with the purple bats hosiery and they look amazing.

Legit my favourite photo from the photoshoot!

  • Ghost With The Most Cuffed Pants (link)

This is the item I ended up ordering from the restocks and I think out of the whole collection it’s the one I’ve been looking forward to the most. These are also my first pair of cuffed pants so I was incredibly anxious when ordering them due to sizing. Would the size L be too small? Maybe even too big? I was advised by a few people that the pants are generous in size, with some even saying the L would be too big. Alas I still went for the L for my own sanity and they arrived earlier last week. They’re definite a little on the baggy side and going down to an M wouldn’t have hurt, BUT this being said I love that they’re baggy as it means they’ll be lovely and comfy for meals out and more.

As you’ve probably gathered by the look and name of these pants, they’re heavily inspired by Beetlejuice, which I LOVE. I realised last year that Beetlejuice is my favourite Halloween movie. I loved the cartoon of the film as a kid and I think I was in my late twenties when I finally watched the film. Don’t ask me why it took me so long to watch it, because even I don’t know! I’m not the biggest Tim Burton fan, so maybe that’s why?

As you can see the pants are the black and white vertical stripes we all know and love Beetlejuice for, with the cuffed up parts of the pant having a green striped design with black bugs all over. It definitely makes the pants pop when they’re cuffed over. The only thing I don’t like about these is how high up they feel when the cuffs are over, but that may also be due to how high up I’m wearing the pants when I tried them on. These of course also have pockets, which is always amazing!

Either way I’m so glad that Black Milk Clothing decided to bring this piece back as I honestly love it! I’m planning to wear them on Halloween with my new Halloween Animal Crossing Timmy and Tommy t-shirt by BarelyBlossom.

Now I’ve spoken about all the pieces I bought from the Ghouls Night In collection, I want to take a moment to share some of the pieces I’m still hoping to pick up in the future, some limited and some permanent items.

Ghost With The Most Blazer

  • Ghost With The Most Blazer (link)

I honestly wish Black Milk Clothing would have restocked this blazer alongside with the cuffed pants as I could have seen me buying both in all honesty. The set would have looked so cool to rock for meals out with friends, cocktail evenings and more. This was limited so it’s not out of stock on the website. Fingers crossed for it coming out again in the future, OR someone selling online. I wouldn’t know which size to buy however!

Bats Black Suspender Hosiery

  • Bats Black Suspender Hosiery (link)

I mentioned previously against the purple bats hosiery I picked up that the black ones were the ones I wanted mostly. This being said, I do love the purple ones and still plan to pick up the black bats pair in the future. These will look really cool with my Halloween pieces I picked up, as well as colourful dresses!

Velvet Black Mini Strappy Dress

  • Velvet Black Mini Strappy Dress (link)

Finally we have this piece that I don’t regret not buying, as I’ve only really thought about it this week whilst I was drafting up this post! Someone on Instagram who works with Black Milk Clothing (mayumouse) posted a picture of her wearing this dress with the purple bats hosiery and I LOVE that look so much! It just looks so good with how she’s styled the outfit with a chunky belt too and I’m living for it! I would definitely love to re-create this outfit myself in the future so… We’ll see what happens! This dress is a permanent item so, it’s definitely doable.

So, there we have it guys! My haul from the Ghouls Night In collection. I really loved this collection and as I regretted not picking up more items from last years collection (Welcome to Halloweenia) I didn’t want to face that same regret this year.

I’m so bloody excited to wear my Halloween pieces around the spookiest time of year, as well as all year around. What do you guys think of the pieces I picked up? As well as the collection in general? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time guys – HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

October Wish List ‘21

I cannot believe we’re now over a week into October. It’s already flown and before we know it, it’ll be Halloween and Bonfire night, two of my favourite times of the year. 🙂

In October I’ve so far been on a spending ban, only buying things I need, as well as a Christmas present… Yes I said the C word in October! 😛

Image taken from Mental Health Foundation

I want to mention today how it’s World Mental Health Day and a reminder for anyone suffering with their mental health to reach out if you need help, not matter what!

I know I’ve been really struggling with my metal health the past month or so, it’s the reason why I’ve stopped streaming on Twitch, as well as other things. I know I have a lot of lovely people around me to talk to and I’m just trying to plod on each day and do the best I can. But, there are a lot of resources you can reach out to if you’re suffering:

Samaritans – 116 123 / samaritans.org

NHS Non-Emergency – 111 / 111.nhs.uk

Papyrus – 0800 068 41 41 / papyrus-uk.org

Mind – 0300 123 3393 or text 86463 / mind.org.uk

The Mix – www.themix.org.uk/get-support

Anyhoo, it’s time for me to show you guys what items I have on my wish list for this month. A couple of items I’ve got ordered and some I’d love to get when I’m paid at the end of the month… This being said, Christmas is on the way (here comes the C word again :P) so I might just see if Dane might buy me one or two things for me for Christmas. 😉

  • DarkDevil’s Designs Tempworker Patch – (link)

As many people must know by now, I LOVE Bee & PuppyCat, so much. I know DarkDevil’s Designs does bring out some Bee & PuppyCat fan merchandise and recently they’ve brought out this adorable Tempworker patch! I’d love to get it in the future soon and pop it with my PuppyCat amigurumi pieces, or even on a future Bee & PuppyCat enamel pin hoop I’m planning on making.

  • Lumichee Metal Mousemoth Hoodie – (link)

This is a hoodie I’ve wanted for about a month now and whilst I’ve really wanted to order… The price of the shipping is really high, which I know is no fault of the seller. This item is on my Christmas wish list as I would like it, but don’t know if I can justify getting it myself. It’s an alternative style looking hoodie with the faded black/grey look, as well as Lumichee’s original character Mousemoth, in metal rocker form!

  • Killstar Ghost Hinged Jar – (link)

Halloween is just around the corner and with that comes a lot of spooky and gothic homeware and more! Killstar is a gothic clothing and homeware brand anyway, so with Halloween comes the excuse for them to bring out more cute spooky goodies, including this ghost jar! I saw one like this recently from TK Maxx, but I left it as I wasn’t 100% keen, however I really do love the look of this one from Killstar! This is on my Christmas wish list, so it would be cool to own eventually! I think I’d use it for my cotton pads. 🙂

  • Black Milk Clothing Ghost With The Most Cuffed Pants – (link)

My favourite Halloween movie is Beetlejuice. I used to love the cartoon show as a kid, even though I’d never watched the film (from memory…). Years later when I was in my late teens, early twenties I decided to finally watch the movie and I fell in love with it! Beetlejuice is definitely the ghost with the most! I always watch it around Halloween and I even wanted to book an outdoor cinema “experience” so me and Dane could go and watch it, but nowhere is showing it, which is a shame. 😦 That aside, when I saw the Beetlejuice cuffed pants go for sale on Black Milk’s website, I HAD to order! I’ll be wearing these both for work as well as personal. They won’t arrive in time for Halloween, but that won’t stop me wearing them all year around. 😛

  • BarelyBlossom Glow In The Dark Animal Crossing Timmy & Tommy Halloween Edition Embroidered T-Shirt – (link)

This is an item I’ve actually ordered and I’m waiting for it to arrive. As I’ve said before, I love Halloween and as many readers of my blog should know by now, I love Animal Crossing too! So, to see this adorable design of Timmy and Tommy dressed up as ghosts, I was already sold, so when I saw that the white thread used for the ghost design glows in the dark, I was ecstatic. I ordered it as soon as I could on a black t-shirt. I’m definitely going to wear this on Halloween whilst me and Dane chill together. If my Beetlejuice cuffed pants arrive in time, I’ll pair these together. I’m planning to write about this t-shirt on my blog this week coming or next so I can show off this and the rest of the Halloween goodies from BarelyBlossom.

  • Stami Studios Greedy Ghost Pins – (link)

Another Halloween item on this list and it’s the last one too. Stami Studios enamel pins are bloody adorable and whilst I don’t have many by them, I have enough to know the quality is amazing. Stami Studios has brought out a few Halloween designs both enamel pins and clothing, including these greedy ghost pins! I want all three to be honest, I can’t pick one design. As you can see these three ghosts are all eating or drink snack foods, including drinking fizzy pop, eating an ice cream, and eating Pocky. I’m hoping to treat myself to all three designs in the future. 😀

So there we have it guys, that’s my wish list for October! I know it’s been a bit of a mish mash of clothing and accessories, with one homeware item. Of course, due to Halloween the majority of items are themed around that!

What items do you guys have on your wish lists this month? Also, what are your plans for Halloween? Any spooky movies you recommend me and Dane to watch over Halloween? Please let me know in the comments!

Until next time all, take care and see you soon! 😀

September Favourites ’21

I cannot believe it’s already October! This month has flown by and it’s been a mixture of good and bad for me. I won’t go into the latter but I’ll definitely share some exciting stuff me and Dane got up to during the month!

I’m quite glad for a new month to be honest, purely for the bad that’s happened and I especially cannot wait for Halloween at the end of the month, some time off for me and Dane as well as Bonfire Night too, even though that’s November. 😛

For October I have decided to go on a spending ban too, I need to start saving for Christmas, which will be here before we know it! I’ll talk more about that on next weeks post (wish list).

Without further delay, let’s get on with the monthly favourites!

Favourite Beauty Product – Blistex MedPlus Lip Balm.

I don’t know what happened at the start of September but at one point for about a week my lips were so dry, sore and sensitive! So much so, at one point I was anxious I had eczema/dermatitis on my lips! During mine and Dane’s week off we went shopping and I decided to pick up this Blistex lip balm in the hops it would help my lips, which it did, thank fuck for that! Quite frankly since buying this I’ve been using it on my lips when they feel sore or sensitive and due for a flare up. This was only £2 from Bodycare, but I know it’s around this price elsewhere too from places like Boots and Superdrug.

Favourite Film – Free Guy.

I literally watched this film the evening before writing this post as it’s on Disney+ (thanks Sacha for telling me! :D) and I was SO EXCITED for watching it! I remember when this film was announced, as well as a trailer, I was so hyped. Ryan Reynolds is my favourite actor, so whenever he’s in a new film I always tend to check it out. Free Guy is about Guy, a NPC (non playable character) in a Grand Theft Auto style game. One day he realises he can do more and is more than just a guy who works in a bank. It’s an amazing film and I highly recommend everyone to watch it, especially if you love Ryan Reynolds like me, as well as games. 😀

Watch Kenny vs. Spenny Season 5 | Prime Video

Image taken from Amazon.com

Favourite TV Show – Kenny Vs Spenny.

Kenny Vs Spenny is a TV show I kept (and keep) going to and from and I love it so much! It’s one that Dane actually introduced me to around the start of our week off together in September and it’s also one he thought I’d heard of. This is due to the fact it’s similar to Dirty Sanchez and Jackass, which are both right up my street. Kenny Vs Spenny came out in the early 00’s, which you can tell if you watch it. The show is hilarious though and is about Kenny and Spenny, two best friends who set each other challenges. The winner gets the loser to do horrible prank style stuff. Kenny is always cheating and due to that often wins over Spenny, so when Spenny wins it makes me so happy. I’m constantly rooting for Spenny. 😛 I highly recommend you giving this a go, all six seasons are over on Kenny’s YouTube account, which I’ve linked you back to. 🙂

Favourite Music/Album – Lil Nas X – Montero.

Lil Nas X’s new album Montero came out a couple of weeks ago and since then I’ve been listening to it on and off. I love some of the songs from Montero and I think Lil Nas X is such a legend! This isn’t my usual music genre of choice but I do really love this album. It’s got a little bit of everything in there (lyric topics wise) and I’m always there for that! I’d say whether or not you like this genre, definitely give Montero a listen as you might be surprised at just how GOOD this album is! I’m listening to it as I write this post this evening. 😀

Favourite Game – WarioWare: Get It Together!

Gaming in September for me has really been lacking due to a mixture of being busy and just not being in the mood. However, I have played a bit of the new WarioWare game on Nintendo Switch as Dane pre-ordered us both a copy. It’s been so much fun to play alone as well as together as it’s full of small quick paced party style games, which can be frustrating and funny all at the same time! This is the first time I’ve played a WarioWare game and I’m glad I’ve finally gotten to give it a go. If you fancy getting this game but want to see what you think of it, make sure to go to the Nintendo eShop and download the demo to try before you buy. 🙂

Just a few of my favourite things…

The Steamhouse Bakery.

I have been excited to talk to you guys about The Steamhouse Bakery and why (if you’re in the Midlands) you need to visit in on your next trip! I heard about The Steamhouse Bakery during lockdown last year ad have wanted to go there ever since. So, during mine and Dane’s week off last month we decided to go and we went all out… In a way! 😛 We had yummy coffee, bagels and of course had to get some cakes too!

We bought a bagel of each, but decided to share them so we could see what they were like! I went for The Workman (Smoked Bacon, Scrambled Eggs & Sausage) and Dane went for The Southern Gent (Roast Chicken, Bacon, Mozzarella, BBQ Sauce & Leaves). Both bagels were amazing and as you can see from the photos, you get plenty of food too! We were stuffed and couldn’t eat any dinner due to that fact. 😛 We also ordered some cakes, I had a Nutella and Bueno brownie and Dane had a Twix doughnut.

The Steamhouse Bakery have three stores, based in Leamington Spa, Worcester and Redditch. So if you’re in the Midlands (or live here like I do), there’s a chance on your next trip out to Worcestershire, you might be able to drop into one of the stores to try their amazing baked goods… And coffee. 😛

Holiday to Wales.

A couple of weeks before September, we decided to book a few days in Wales, just to get away and have a break. We haven’t had a holiday (as in get away from home) since Japan in January 2020 so this trip away was a little overdue. We did a tour of the coast of Wales travelling from Pembrokeshire, to Aberystwyth, and finally to Snowdon. During out time there we did lots of walking, visited our friends farm , walked on some beaches and stayed in a luxury cabin with a HUGE bath and double showers. It was a lovely break away and we’re already planning to go to the luxury cabin again in the future!

Black Milk Clothing Ghost Unicorns Sheer Romance Dress.

This photo is actually from the luxury cabin in question, but I wanted to show off my Black Milk Clothing ghost unicorns dress, as I LOVE it! This is the first time I’d worn it, which was just on the way home from Wales. I then wore it again for my dad’s birthday meal out! I LOVE the romance style of BMC’s dresses as it’s so flattering for my figure and I always feel fancy wearing them (I own two including this one). On our way home from Wales we stopped off somewhere for food and the woman who served us commented how lovely my dress was and how it had a pink glow around the restaurant as I walked around. Her comments really made me smile. :’)

Ghost Items!

I have to show off some of the new spoopy items I’ve received from orders and pre-orders, especially these two ghostie cuties! I love kawaii ghosts, I have done since I was a kid, so when Halloween comes around, I always like to snag a few spooky pieces.

The Sad Ghost Club brought out a limited edition plush back in July and I made sure to pre-order my own as soon as I could! My Sad Ghost arrived a week or so ago and it’s so cute and perfect. The Sad Ghost Club is something I really adore and their posts on Instagram really do help me when I’m feeling low. I feel like it’s been around forever and it’s always been something that comes up on my social media now, it’s sort of like a norm for me now. So, to have my own Sad Ghost as part of my plushie collection really does make me happy!

I also managed to snag this large DW Home ghost candle from TK Maxx… Well, technically I sourced it through a group on Facebook and someone was nice enough to pick it up for me and ship it. This candle smells like vanilla cupcake and honestly, the picture doesn’t so it just of just how big this thing is! It weighs a ton but that cuteness really does pack a punch. This ghostie lives on my bedroom window shelf and it makes me smile looking at it each morning and evening. I’m planning to light it soon… But at the same time I want to keep it nice! xD

Autumnal Gel Nails!

Finally I want to share my newest and current gel mani with you all! I know nails might not be some people’s thing and I get that, I do. But my nails mean a lot to me now. I’ve mentioned before on my blog (I’m sure…) how bad my nails condition used to be. I’d cut them down so short they would bleed and they looked tiny and more like children’s nails than a grown adults. Due to how often I cut them down, they didn’t get the chance to grow. This was down to my anxieties and I often cut them down to stop myself from chewing and biting them.

When I started going to my nail tech almost two years ago now, I wondered if getting my nails done with gel would be for me. Who knew it would be, eh? I bloody love my nails now and love seeing them look healthy, long and gorgeous all the time. I don’t have my nails long, because I do still like them neat and short. If I have them long, I end up chewing on them and the gel doesn’t last five minutes.

My friend Bintou (hey girl! :D) recently had her nails painted pretty much the same as mine, which in turn inspired me to go with some gorgeous fall colours for my recent mani! I love them so much and they’re definitely up there as some of my favourite nails! 😀

There we have it guys, my monthly favourites from September!

What were some of your favourite things last month? What are you looking forward to in October? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Roll on Halloween I say!!!

Until next time all, take care and I hope you have a great start to the month. 🙂

September Wish List ‘21

Not going to lie guys, I feel like my blog is a little all over the place this past couple of weeks! I usually schedule and get posts out on a weekend, but that hasn’t been happening recently. I do apologise, just life has been a bit messy of late. 😦

As always however, one of my monthly posts includes my monthly favourites! Most of the items on this list really are wished for, with one being a pre order I’m expecting this month! I’m on a spending ban for a while now so majority of the items mentioned this month won’t be bought and probably added to a Christmas wish list later this year. 🙂

I hope you guys enjoy the cute items on this months wish list and apologies that it’s a little late this month.

  • Good Smile Company Pokemon Marnie Nendoroid (with bonus!) – (link)

First of all with this Nendoroid I want to mention, this is limited and is no longer available to pre order. You may be able to find it for sale on the internet, but I’ve already seem it around for £80 plus, which is shocking!

I’m really excited for my Marnie Nendoroid! Aside from owning a handful of Pokemon Nendoroid’s at the time of ordering Marnie, this Nendoroid really did encourage me to try and collect the rest! I made sure to pre order the one with the bonus too, so I’ll get an angry Morpeko with it too! 😀

  • MossFrogPress Sausage Dog Enamel Pin – (link)

I’ve had this sausage dog pin on my wish list via Etsy for who knows how long now. It’s one I discovered through Instagram and I’m still yet to order. The reason I haven’t yet is due to the shipping from the USA costing more than the pin itself! This being said, I can see me getting it in the future when I fancy a treat. It’s definitely a pin I want in my collection, it’s just so bloody cute! 😀

  • Black Milk Clothing Good Spirits Bishop Skater Dress – (link)

Black Milk Clothing are bringing out their Halloween collection in a couple of days (late Monday night for the UK!) and this gorgeous ghost dress is part of the collection this year! I love the bishop skater dress style, it’s so flattering on me and makes me feel beautiful every time I wear it. So, when Black Milk Clothing announced this dress with the cute ghosts on it in the bishop style, I KNEW I had to have it! 😀

  • Mold Galaxy Bee and Puppycat Pallet Mold – (link)

I really want to get back into resin and this for sure isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned this mold on my wish list! I love Bee and Puppycat, so it would be wrong of me not to own a mold with them both on it! It would be cool to make some keychains of the two for myself, as well as to sell if people were interested! The shipping on this isn’t cheap however… So it may end up becoming a big(ish) Christmas present idea…

  • Dathie Poppy Kitsune Fox Enamel Pin – (link)

This is an enamel pin I’ll be ordering once I get paid at the end of the month. Back in 2018 I discovered this pin via the Kickstarter campaign that made it happen! Sadly I didn’t back the Kickstarter, which I’ve regretted since. I recently decided to have a look online to see if I could find the pin for sale and low and behold the person behind the Kickstarter still has some available on their website! I dropped her a DM on Instagram for a chat in regards and when payday rolls around, I’ll finally snag myself one. 🙂

  • TK Maxx DW Home Caramel Apple Candle – (link)

Finally we have a candle on my wish list! I do love candles, even though I haven’t bought one for AGES due to using up all my wax tarts from Cushty Co. TK Maxx have really gone for it this year in regards to Halloween goods and I’ve been loving seeing everything! I recently ordered myself through a personal shopper the ghost candle everyone has gone mad for (still waiting for it to arrive…) but I would love to snag this caramel apple candle eventually! I still have so many wax tarts to get through though, so this may never be mine…

So there we have it guys, my wish list for September! I know it isn’t anything amazing, but I’m loving all the cute goodies I’m getting and hoping to get soon or on payday. 🙂

What items do you love on the list? Also, what items are on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time guys, take care and have a lovely weekend. 🙂

July Favourites ’21

I feel like I always say stuff like this when it comes to my monthly posts, but seriously… How is it August already?! This year has really flown by, so much so I didn’t realise my boiler was due a service because it only felt like yesterday that it had had one! xD

This month feels like it’s been… Strange? My mental health hasn’t been very good to be perfectly honest but at the same time it actually improved due to dog sitting my best friends dog Eddie. I’ll be talking more about him later… 😉

I’m hopeful for August being a better month. I have lots of fun things planned with friends and I can’t wait to go on some mini adventures with some of them too.

Beauty.

  • Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap in Peppermint.

This is an all purpose soap that my mom recently gave to me in lavender form. She’d treated herself to some of the scents but had found she had too many. As I wasn’t using it due to having a lot of my on stuff to use, I gave it back to my mom. When I did however, she offered me another scent that she hardly had any of, the peppermint one. This came at a good time with the heat wave we experienced in the UK. This is a multi purpose soap that can be used as a body wash, shaving and even for cleaning around the home! I’m yet to try it for shaving, but so far both me and Dane have used it on the body. As this is peppermint it leaves a lovely cool feeling behind after rinsing off of the skin, which felt amazing during the heat wave! I don’t know if I would go out of my way to buy this soap as I feel for less money I could pick up the Original Source mint shower gel for a lot less money.

Favourite Film – All the Jackass movies!

As some of you may know I am a MASSIVE Jackass fan and earlier last week the trailer for Jackass Forever came out, so I was kind of an excited fan girl… 😛 I was so excited that I decided to binge watch ALL five Jackass films, including Jackass 2.5 and Jackass 3.5. I forgot about some of the scenes from the films so it’s always a delight to be reminded of some of them. I can’t tell you guys how many times I’ve watched the Jackass series as well as the films now. Whilst studying my undergraduate degree I remember watching everything over and over again as it helped me whilst I worked on my dissertation. To add here, whilst I’m really excited for Jackass Forever I’m not excited about a few things. 1. The fact Bam Margera and Ryan Dunn won’t be there (who are both my favourite Jackass guys) and 2. This is actually going to be Johnny Knoxville’s last Jackass film… Gutted! It’s obviously the end of an era in a way and the young 11/12 year old Nat probably didn’t even realise how much this show would change her life. I’ll be writing a post all about Jackass towards the fourth film, which comes to cinemas on 22nd October!

Favourite TV Show – Beastars season two.

Me and Dane literally binge watched season 2 of Beastars as soon as it came out on Netflix. We watched the first season last year and really enjoyed it! As I haven’t read the manga, I didn’t expect there to be another season coming out, so when it was announced a while ago I was surprised! This being said, I was intrigued as to what would happen in season two and other questions about Legoshi (wolf) and Haru (rabbit). For those of you who may not know, Beastars is about anthropomorphic animals where carnivores and herbivores are divided. We follow Legoshi during his time as a student where we see how this divide is affecting students, as well as adults outside of the school/college/university. I definitely recommend watching! You can watch it on Netflix, subbed and dubbed.

Favourite Music – Girl Talk – All Day.

All Day is an album my ex actually told me about over 10 years ago and I still listen to it to this day. It’s a mash up album with all sorts of genres mashed up to make one amazing piece of work. I love listening to this when I have stuff to do, whether it be doing paperwork, blog work or cleaning around the house, it’s the perfect album to put on and listen to. I especially love listening to it whilst driving. There are 372 songs used on this album. Honestly go and give it a listen if you’ve never heard of it before… I don’t think you’ll regret it. 😉

Favourite Game – The Greatest Penguin Heist of All Time.

This is a game that Dane introduced me to about three weeks ago now! It’s an early access game on Steam and it is fucking hilarious! If you can’t gather what it’s about from the title then… 😛 Obviously you play as a penguin and you’re off on a heist, the greatest of all time! This game can be played alone or in a group of four through private parties and it’s one that me and Dane have been really loving playing together, especially on streams. You play various different levels and each time you are set tasks to complete. You complete the tasks successfully, you make big penguin bucks which can be used to buy new areas to play, as well as weapons, clothing and more! As this is an early access game there are bugs and items still in development but this doesn’t bother us too much as it’s still crazy and fun to play. 🙂 If you fancy watching us play it on stream make sure to drop us a follow so you can watch us play games! We stream this game every Wednesday between 7pm-9pm. Dane’s Twitch and my Twitch.

Just a few of my favourite things…

New Black Milk Clothing pieces.

Okay so I found some Black Milk Clothing bargains online in July, but I also picked up the Snorlax Snoozing Snuggle Suit when it was re-released! It originally came out in the second Pokemon collection. I’d been nagging BMC via Twitter for ages to bring it back and it would seem myself and others would get their wishes (and nagging!) come true. I’ve owned it for a month now and I’ve worn it loads when the weather was cool enough to. It’s really comfortable and I feel adorable as fuck in it too! If there’s one thing I realised this year, it’s just how much I love BMC’s snuggle suits and how I need more. 😛

As I mentioned, I did pick up some bargains, two in fact! The Snorlax Apples Apron Dress originally came out in the second Pokemon collection and I snagged for £10 less than what BMC are selling it for! Although I’m yet to wear it out and about, I have zero regrets about buying it! It’s a gorgeous apron piece that I’ve teamed up with a strawberry t-shirt from TU Sainsburys. Apron pieces are some I’ve always been unsure of due to the length, but with leggings or a pair of tights with shorts on top, I’m sure it’ll be fine! I’m planning to wear this outfit soon, maybe on a day trip with a friend or for a picnic date with Dane! It’s the perfect outfit for spring and summer!

The second bargain I picked up is the Mew Sheer Midaxi Dress which came out in the first Pokemon collection. This is a piece I’d always lusted after but… Couldn’t justify the monies. I’d bought the Gastly Evolution Handkerchief Dress and felt that was enough for me. However, months later BMC put the Mew dress into the sale and I started to think more about ordering it. I put it off and just as I went to, it had sold out… I was gutted and it was clearly never meant to be. However, one morning whilst scrolling through the internet I found someone was selling the Mew dress on Vinted for a decent price! It was a size M, so a size down from what I usually buy and after some chat with the seller I placed an order. It arrived a few days later and fits perfectly! I’m so happy I bought it and I’m waiting for the right time to wear it… But with the way the weather is now in the UK I may need to wait a while. xD

Lucky art commission from Claire Likes To Doodle.

About a year ago now my amazing friend Claire/Claire Likes To Doodle would stream whilst doing art over on Twitch channel and as she would stream during the day I would join to watch during work for company. I saved enough channel points so I could ask Claire to draw something quick for me! I asked for Lucky from Animal Crossing and she smashed it! Recently I asked her if she still had that initial quick sketch she did for me and she did! I paid for her to finish it for me and paint him. I met Claire for coffee last weekend and was presented with this gorgeous piece. I love how Lucky has a cute little butterfly on his nose, as well as the bees around the flowers too! I’m currently catching loads of bees on Animal Crossing so I can make lots of bee models for my hive!

If you’re interested in getting a commission from Claire yourself make sure to check out her Instagram page and drop her a DM. 🙂

New clothing in general… 😛

I seem to have acquired some new clothing pieces over the last week of July and I have my reasons for this! xD I’d seen the Disturbia Strange Oversized Skater Dress making it’s way around social media for a while and after a lot of thought, I decided to pick one up! I’d seen and heard in a lot of posts and reviews of this dress that the sizing of it was incredibly generous and as my size(s) had sold out, I had to go for a size I haven’t been able to fit into for a VERY long time. Alas a few days passed and the dress arrived. I was so anxious to try it on in case it didn’t fit, but alas it did and it was still very oversized. This being said I don’t mind it, it feels really comfortable and with a belt around (as shown in the image above) you wouldn’t even know how oversized it is! I’m planning to wear this over the weekend.

This sweater literally arrived a few days ago and as you can see it’s a Space Jam Lola Bunny sweater from George Asda. To be able to order an item I’d wanted for AGES I had to order something else, so I decided to get this sweater. It claimed to be oversized and it had Lola Bunny on it so… Win win really! 😛 I used to love Lola Bunny growing up, so much so my dad bought me a keyring/chain with her on. I loved it! I remember being so hyped for a female bunny character and Space Jam but when it came down to watching the film, I was left feeling disappointed and a bit freaked out by the aliens. xD I plan on watching it again soon.

Dog sitting a cutie pie! ***WARNING IMAGE HEAVY***

Finally I’m here to show off this little cutie pie, Eddie, my best friend and her husbands dog! He’s a Shih Tzu Yorkshire Terrier cross, or a Shorkie for short. Me and Dane love him to death so when our friends were talking about where they could put him (aka a kennel/dog boarding) whilst they go on holiday we offered to look after him! We had him for a week and we loved every minute of it. I wanted to share with you guys some of the memorable and funny moments we had with Eddie during his week holiday at ours! We’ll be looking after him again in August and hopefully September which we’re really looking forward to!

This is our living room and for some reason a couple of days into his stay with us he got obsessed by our living room light. As you can see it’s mirrored and he kept staring at it one day after Dane had come home from visiting his family. Eddie was going crazy after a while, in the sense he was trying to get up to the light, whether it was via my airer or the dining table! We don’t 100% know why but we can only assume he saw himself in the mirror and thought it was another dog. We ended up wrapping the light with kitchen roll in the hopes he would forget about it, he didn’t. 😛

On his way home one day from work Dane brought Eddie a puppuccino from Starbucks. It’s basically just a cup of cream but damn did Starbucks give Dane a big cup! Eddie really enjoyed it but he kept wandering off thinking he was finished, when he wasn’t! We might treat him to one in August/September if we get time to. 🙂

Most of the time Eddie would nap, especially during the work day when I was busy and in the evening when me and Dane were chilling or streaming on Twitch. This was taken the day he went back home after his mini holiday with me and Dane. This was typical of Eddie to have a nap next to me on the sofa, or underneath my desk. Look at his cute little face!

The weather was mostly lovely whilst Eddie was staying with us and one afternoon whenever I let him out for a wee or was sorting my washing, he would sit on our decking (I know it’s seen better days…) and look out at the garden and take in all the smells! It was really nice to sit with him and relax, especially if I wasn’t having a very good mental health day. Taking this photo of Eddie has really added to me want to get a dog to sit and have chill moments with… As well as other reasons of course!

Finally my favourite part of having Eddie stay with us for the week was all the doggy cuddles we got to have… More so me than Dane as Eddie really did get attached to me. Every morning Eddie would come and sit on my lap during my morning meetings and then later on come for snuggles and cuddles on the sofa during lunchtime and then on the bed before me and Dane would sleep. These two photos of him are my favourites as he’s given me those perfect puppy dog eyes for fuss. I mean, who can say no to that face?

I know I said finally before, but the day after Eddie went home, I went to my besties for a hot tub party! Typical Eddie came for snuggles with me… 😛 I didn’t mind of course. 😛

So there we have it guys, those are my favourites from July, with Eddie being number one of course!

What were your favourites from July guys? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time all, I hope you’re having a great weekend and I hope August is a good and sunny month for us all. 🙂

June Favourites ‘21

Well, as regular readers will have noticed, this months favourites is late… I’m not sorry. 😛

I’ve been so busy lately that this is the only chance I’m getting to write my favourites for June, it’s rubbish but we can’t help how busy and crazy life can be sometimes.

But I’m here and I’m raring to go for today’s blog post about my favourites from June! I already can’t believe we’re nearly a week into July!

Beauty.

  • Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry and Sugar Plum.

This is an old favourite I’ve been reminded of recently when searching for a new lip balm to use. Carmex is a lip balm I used to use LOADS when I was working in my last retail job, as well as previous admin role. I didn’t realise I had some spare pots lying around in my beauty drawers so when I found these, I decided to give them a go. They don’t only smell amazing, but they feel great on and leave your lips baby soft! They also contain menthol so they leave a tingly cooling sensation on the lips, which might plump them a little too. The cherry one is still around, but the sugar plum version was limited edition MANY years ago (around 2017?) and I never ended up using it until recently! I much prefer Carmex to Vaseline so when these are used up, I’ll be buying Carmex more often!

So… Now it’s time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month! If there isn’t anything I’ve done I’m not going to mention.

Favourite Film – The Talented Mr. Ripley.

This is a film I watched at the end of June after seeing it on Netflix. I’ve never watched it but both me and Dane had watched a preview from the film and I added it to my list. I ended up watching it on my own whilst I did some work and I really love it! It’s about Tom Ripley, asked to go and find a mans soon, who he befriends. It isn’t all plain sailing though and shit hits the fan. I definitely recommend giving it a watch if you never have! Fun fact, Matt Damon claims this is his favourite film he’s been in to date.

Watch Viva La Bam - Season 1 | Prime Video

Favourite TV Show – Viva La Bam.

I don’t know why but towards the end of June I got the itch to binge watch season 1-5 of Viva La Bam. If you’ve never heard of it (although I’ll be shocked if anyone hasn’t…) it’s basically a spin off of Jackass in a way where Bam Margera terrorises his parents alongside with his friends. Basically cKy films, but a show! It’s clearly all scripted but this is a show I loved as a teenager. When I would skip school (yes… I skipped school!) I would stay at home and put MTV on during the day and watch random shows, including Viva La Bam. I also used to binge watch this and Jackass when I was working on my dissertation during my university days! When I was old enough to I saved up my pocket money/money I earnt through odd jobs and bought all of the box sets as and when they came out. Years later I still love this show and scripted or not, it still brings back a lot of memories. My favourite episode is season 1 episode 8, Scavenger Hunt.

Favourite Music – Random game music I use on Twitch!

I love having cute music play before my stream starts and I usually try to limit it to a couple of songs to get people hyped for the stream! Above are just three of my favourites that really do get me into a dancing mood before streams! Especially Monday and Friday streams where I bring my Cookie amigurumi (you can read about her here!) to hang out! 😛

Favourite Game – Doki Doki Literature Club Plus!

This is a new game purchase I made towards the end of June! Doki Doki Literature Club isn’t exactly a new game, but it was announced during E3 that Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! was due to come out at the end of June with loads of DLC and updates! Dane was shocked that I’d never heard of the game and encouraged me to get it when the time was right. So, I pre-ordered on my Switch and I’ve played it a few times since. It looks like a cute dating game, but it’s actually a psychological horror game! I’ve not yet reached the horror parts of the game, but after researching what I was expecting, it’s pretty fucking horrific! This game is NOT advised to be played by children, or people who could be mentally affected easily and the latter is why I why I searched to see what happens. I didn’t want to worry I bought it, played and it affected my mental health. I don’t think it will… This is a game I thought about streaming on Twitch, as a few people had asked me to as well. However, this isn’t going to be happening due to the disturbing themes. It isn’t worth it.

Quite a few of my favourite things…

Becoming a Twitch Affiliate!

As many as you guys may have seen from previous posts on my Twitter and Instagram, as well as potentially on my monthly posts in June… I finally made affiliate on Twitch! It was a proud moment for me and I as so fucking happy. It had been something I’d planned to get to by the end of May, so the fact I hit that target on 1st June was typical. 😛

Since then I feel my Twitch has continued to improve and I’m still enjoying streaming Animal Crossing and more! I also have a camera set up now, so you guys can watch me play games and chat away, which is always good! If you haven’t come to check out my stream yet, please pop by, it would be amazing to see you. 🙂

Finally wearing my Black Milk Clothing Butterfree dress!

I bought my BMC Butterfree dress back in September 2020 and finally for a meal and drinks out with my best friend and her bridesmaids, I got to wear it! It’s so bloody comfortable, flattering and made me feel so pretty and confident. I haven’t had the chance to wear it again since, but honestly I can’t wait! I’ll be wearing it at some point in the future when me and Dane go somewhere for a day out, as well as if we decide to go on holiday anywhere in the UK this year too. If you want to find out more about the dress, you can read all about it here.

My best friend got married!

Almost a month ago now, my best friend got married! It was such a beautiful day and many tears were shed due to that. I had an amazing time and was so happy to be a huge part of it with being her maid of honour really was an honour! Not going to lie though, I was so tired by the late afternoon and evening and I couldn’t wait to sleep. 😛 It’s just amazing how quick the time has flown already since the day and I’m so proud of my best friend! 🙂

I would have posted a photo from the day but I feel it isn’t my place, so you guys can have the one of me holding the flowers my best friend and her husband gave to me. 🙂

Gorgeous flowers.

In June my mom came over to help me with my garden and gifted me this amazing hanging basket she’d done up, as well as some flowers in one of my flower beds. Our garden is looking so beautiful and colourful and I’m so thankful for her help! I love how pretty my garden now looks and I cannot wait to do more in the future with it now. 🙂

I bought myself a new car…

So… I bought myself a new car! It was a very random and spontaneous thing but I’d been thinking of getting something new since I came back from Japan in January 2020. Due to COVID it didn’t happen and lockdown and working from home that also put me off as I wasn’t needing to drive anywhere. Finally I decided to bite the bullet and get something new! Originally I was going to buy a two year old car, but it didn’t feel like it was very… Me? So I settled on my gorgeous blue Citroen C3 and I love it! I’m hoping to do a post about it in the future, but I don’t know if/when that will be sadly.

So there we have it guys! My favourites from June! June was a good month, but I constantly felt hectic and busy so July will be nice to just try and relax a bit. 🙂

What were your favourite things about June? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time guys, I hope you’re having an amazing week and take care.

Black Milk Clothing x Pokemon 2.0

Back in February Black Milk Clothing announced that they would be bringing out a second Pokemon collection and I was SO excited for this! I counted down the days and watching their Instagram page like a hawk to find out what designs were coming out, as well as WHEN the collection would drop… Which dropped at the start of March!

I made sure to get my order in there and then for the goodies I wanted and I didn’t miss out on anything I wanted. However, I do regret not ordering a couple of items in particular that I’ll be sharing with you all in today’s post.

Considering I’d shown you all the first Pokemon collection from Black Milk Clothing and the Animal Crossing collection, I thought it would be nice to show you the pieces I snagged from the second Pokemon collection! I only grabbed two pieces, but they’re both so pretty and I’m really excited to rock them this summer. 🙂

Just a heads up, both of the pieces I picked up are limited, which means they’re limited edition and may not be available anymore to buy, OR might have certain sizes left in stock. I will address this when I talk about each item.

Another thing to bear in mind/address is that I always pick up a size L in my Black Milk Clothing pieces as they’re the fit I like. They’re not tight and they have a little bit of give with them, which is perfect for me. 🙂

For Pokemon 2.0 I personally didn’t feel that this collection was as strong as the first collection, but this being said there were aspects of 2.0 that really stood out and certain things the first collection could have done with. Examples of this being the evil tee dresses. There were SO MANY that came out of 2.0 and they were all gorgeous! I picked one up myself, but I could have easily picked up two. Alongside this three blazers came out with gorgeous print inside. I really loved these, but I’d have never worn them.

Some of the pieces were very hit and miss however and quite frankly I was incredibly disappointed by the fire starters print Black Milk Clothing had created and put out there. It looks like something anyone could photoshop and work on themselves at home. The fire starters are my favourite starter Pokemon so I was really excited to see what Black Milk Clothing would bring out. I wasn’t the only person to complain about this issue. Thankfully there was another design they revealed that I fell in love with!

  • Fire Type Floral Cuffed Shorts (link)

I recently bought my first pair of cuffed shorts from Black Milk Clothing (Isabelle Gingham Cuffed Shorts) and they’re so bloody comfortable! I’m looking forward to wearing them with tights underneath and a cute t-shirt or sweater. I fell in love with the floral fire starters design as it has that 60’s/70’s feel to it that I really do love! Plus I’ve started to bring more pink colours into my wardrobe, which these shorts are perfect for. The fire starters are dotted all over the design, with my two favourites Cyndaquil and Fennekin featuring in perfect places on my pair of shorts! I honestly can’t wait to wear these during the warmer months, especially as lockdown begins to lift again.

  • Psychic Type Longline Evil Tee Dress (link)

This is by far my favourite piece that came out of the Pokemon 2.0 collection and I couldn’t wait to snag it for myself! I bought my first evil tee dress when the Halloween collection came out in 2020 when I picked up the Ghosties Longline Evil Tee Dress and since then I really wanted to grab another one, so this Psychic Type version of the dress was good timing. It’s a gorgeous dark purple colour with lighter purple and blue swirls all over, as well as psychic Pokemon including – Mew, Mewtwo, Espeon, Slowpoke, Starmie, Indeedee, Ralts, Woobat, Meowstic, Espurr, Galarian Ponyta and Galarian Rapidash. It’s just gorgeous and would definitely be a conversation starter when out and about. I don’t know when I’ll wear this next, but I’m planning to rock it soon whenever me and Dane or friends go out and about.

Those are the only two pieces I picked up from the Pokemon 2.0 collection. I mentioned earlier regretting not picking up a few pieces, one of them being the Eeveelution Camo Cargo Pants and the piece mentioned below…

If there is one piece I regret not buying it’s the Snorlax Snoozing Snuggle Suit. I’d bought the Pokemon Dreams Snuggle Suit not long before the second Pokemon collection was announced and I have fallen in love with it. I wear if often, including after work and on days off. I didn’t quite realise how much I was going to fall in love with Black Milk Clothing’s snuggle suits and due to that I regret not buying the Snorlax variant too. I have reached out to ask Black Milk Clothing if this will ever come back in stock and they said maybe at the end of the year. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled on eBay and Depop in the future for this to show up. Honestly I need it in my life! What I love the most is the colour of it. This is my favourite colour and whilst I’m not the biggest Snorlax fan, he is a sleepy boy and I can relate to that on a big level. 😛

So, there we have it guys! Honestly I’m so glad that Pokemon has reawakened my love of Black Milk Clothing. I’ve really started to show off my love of dressing quirky and different during the past year and it’s something I’m excited to continue doing in the future, especially with lockdown and restrictions easing!

If you’d like to check out any of the previous posts I’ve written about Black Milk Clothing collections I’ve bought, I’ll pop them below:

Until next time, take care all and I hope you have an amazing weekend!

February Favourites ‘21

Can you guys believe it’s March tomorrow? I can’t. February went by really quickly and you know what, I’m not complaining about that. I’m going to be honest, February was a shit month for me and I’m really glad to see the back of it. My mental health was really tested for three weeks solid and there was a time where I was in a really low place. To be honest at the time of writing this (Thursday 25th) I still have a couple of days left of the month to go, so fingers crossed the rest of the month treats me well!

I just want to be honest with you guys. The first week I felt numb and empty and it was mostly PMS related but I started to think about life before lockdown, COVID and my parents. I really miss them. The first thing I’m planning to do when lockdown is over and it’s safe to do so is see my parents. I was also starting to think about how I miss my aunt who passed away in September. I think about her almost daily and yeah. It’s shit.

The second week I can’t talk about too much. My mental health was just bad, I was a nervous wreck and I just couldn’t stop crying some days. Just to get this out there, I’m okay now and these feelings have now passed… Thank fuck.

The third week (well this week really…) things just didn’t seem to go right. Dane was told to self isolate at the end of the second week, we’ve had some issues in the house and we’ve been irritable and miserable as fuck. Thankfully we’re both feeling a lot better now.

I just wanted to get that off of my chest. Just because I appear happy and cheerful on my blog and social media, it doesn’t always mean I am and the same goes to everyone. I’m quite good at putting an act on when the time comes. It’s something I’ve had to do my whole life in regards to my mental health.

I also want to say a massive thanks to the handful of friends who have been there for me this month when things were rough. I miss and love you all. :’)

Besides me feeling like shit, February was also a month where I decided to go on a spending ban. I’d been very spend happy in January and due to it being a long month (payday wise) I was kinda skint. The February spending ban went pretty well… Until shitty week two out of three where I ended up treating myself to some Black Milk Clothing pieces… Oops. 😛 Aside from that, the spending ban went really well and it’s actually inspired others to go on a spending ban with me too! I’m already planning to do it again in March AND people will be joining me for that!

Of course if you’re interested to follow along, or maybe even join yourself I’ll pop the template I’ve created for March above. I’ve been posting daily to weekly updates on my Instagram page (theremightbecoffeeblog) stories. Come and join in!

Anyhoo, enough of me waffling on about spending bans and more, let’s talk about my favourites from February. It may have been a crap month but I loved so much stuff and have been excited to share it with you all!

Beauty

  • The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel.

I’ve spoken about this shower gel from The Body Shop many times and I really do love it. I tell this story every time I talk about this shower gel, which I’m sure everyone is bored of now. 😛 Basically my mom used to always buy me a bottle of this shower gel whenever we visited The Body Shop (once every few months or so?) so whenever I use it, it reminds me of when I was younger. I had a £5 birthday voucher and I didn’t want to worry I lost it, so bought myself a MASSIVE bottle of the strawberry shower gel. It’s something Dane loves just as much as I do so it works out nicely. I’ve been using it loads this month and not only does it smell amazing, but it has left my skin feeling lovely and soft too. 🙂

So… Now it’s time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month! If there isn’t anything I’ve done I’m not going to mention. I haven’t mentioned a movie this month as I don’t actually think I/we watched one!

Favourite TV Show – Attack on Titan Final Season.

It saddens me to say that we are on the final season of Attack on Titan, it only feels like yesterday that me and Dane were watching it for the first time (we’d travelled to Bristol for a long weekend for our first anniversary)… That was almost seven years ago! I love the show and I for one am sad to see it come to an end. So far this final season has been AMAZING and it’s something me and Dane have either watched Sunday night before bed, or Monday morning before work. I don’t want to say too much due to spoilers but it’s amazing and very “WHAT IS HAPPENING!” Moments throughout. This is because I don’t/haven’t read the manga yet. I plan to in the future. I definitely recommend watching Attack on Titan if you never have and want to!

I just want to add here that I was going to also add another TV show I’m loving right now… But I’m going to wait until next month when it’s due to end. Spoiler, it’s RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 2… 😛

Favourite Book – Remina by Junji Ito.

GUYS I actually read a book! One book, but A book! This is actually a manga that Dane bought for himself that I ended up reading before him. It’s the latest manga from Junji Ito and it was a strange but enjoyable read. It’s about a young woman called Remina whose dad has discovered a planet, which he names after her. The planet isn’t good, shit goes crazy and people start to blame Remina for it, due to their shared name. For those of you who aren’t aware, Junji Ito is described as the “king of horror manga” due to his unique art style. It’s incredibly detailed and beautiful, although creepy all the same. This isn’t a long manga, but a lot of packed in there! I didn’t really like the ending, but I don’t know what else I expected really. This being said it’s amazing and I recommend giving it a read if you’re already a fan of Junji Ito’s work, or a new reader of his work like I am.

Favourite Music – Childish Gambino – Summer Pack.

I recently discovered the track “Summertime Magic” by Childish Gambino through a game and I have fallen in love with it. From that I also discovered “Feels Like Summer” as both songs were on an EP called Summer Pack which I really love. I’ve found myself listening to them whilst working, even whilst writing up this post on and off too. I’ve never really listened to Childish Gambino before but I’ll definitely listen to his work more in the future for sure! I’m not super excited for the summer yet due to everything going on in the UK at the moment with lockdown and COVID, but as and when we can have a fun summer again, these are songs I’ll be playing whilst cooking something on the BBQ and sipping on a cocktail!

Favourite Game – Ark.

Ark is a game me and a group of friends have been playing recently after we bought a server and with Dane and a friend of ours both needing to self isolate in February it’s been good for them to have something to do during the day, as well as in the week. I’d never played Ark before so I was feeling a mixture of excitement and anxious of what to expect. All I knew about it was that it’s a survival game surrounding dinosaurs. We’ve been playing it for over a week now and we’re all having an amazing time! 😀 I’ve become the one who looks after the dinosaurs and tidies up around the place. 😛 We have two robot stegosaurus’ which I called Daft and Punk. Yes, I’m a loser. 😛 It’s just such a fun game and I honestly recommend it to everyone who fancies something new to play. Plus, I’m pretty sure it’s free on Xbox too!

Just a few of my favourite things.

  • Creating an amigurumi – Animal Crossing Bizkit dog villager.

Not long after the third lockdown began in the UK I decided I would take up a new hobby and that new hobby was going to be amigurumi! I’d been mesmerised by it for quite some time thanks to Instagram and I thought, “Why not give it a go myself?” I’m not going to lie, the first time I gave this a go I was stressed out and anxious that I’d picked up a hobby I couldn’t actually do… My aunt always tried to show me how to crochet when I was younger and I never got the hang of it. Dane was really good and helped me so much with learning how to do some of the basics of amigurumi and if it wasn’t for that, I think I would have given up.

I worked on this project for a couple of days and didn’t go back to it for a few weeks after getting busy. I don’t know what happened but when I picked it back up I just… Got on with it and something that I’d struggled with so much the two weeks prior just came natural to me! I haven’t finished Biskit yet, but I plan to at the start of March. I’ve been a bit too busy lately to pick it up back but I only have a leg and his ears left to do.

Due to the amount of wool I have left I’m actually planning to make another one to either gift to a friend or keep hold of. In the future I would love to do some more projects similar to this including more Animal Crossing dog villagers, Pokemon and maybe even try and find a Puppycat (Bee & Puppycat) and Morgana (Persona 5) design to play with too.

If you’re interested in this design too and fancy giving it a go yourself then make sure to go and check out HanisCrochet! I bought my PDF pattern on her Etsy store and she’s been so lovely and helpful when I’ve gotten stuck or confused with the pattern. I’ll link back to the Biskit pattern here. The next one I plan to buy from her is Cherry so I can make one for Dane, as well as my friend Gabriella. 🙂

  • Pikarar photoshoot (read the post all about Pikarar here).

I’m not going to talk too much about this but I LOVED this mini photoshoot that me and Dane did for my Pikarar review! I had loved the mini photoshoot we’d done for my Black Milk Clothing x Pokemon collection post (which you can read here) so I knew I wanted to do another. Our front room is perfect for these photoshoots and I’m not going to lie, 2021 will hopefully bring more!

As you will have noticed on my blog, as well as on my blog social media pages my image has changed to be the one where I’m wearing my yellow Pikachu crane Pikarar t-shirt. I loved how natural the photo came out and I found by wearing something Pokemon and geeky related it’s more related to what my blog is about.

What do you guys think about the photos? 😀

  • Food – Pancake day,fFakeaway and Japanese ramen.

February was a month of me cooking some yummy meals and if there is one thing I really love to do, it’s cooking. Towards the start of February we had Shrove Tuesday/pancake day! I always make pancakes for me and Dane when pancake day rolls around and I knew we had to have them with bacon and syrup! They were really yummy and now I’m craving them again. 😛

I’ve cooked a couple of “fakeaway” meals during February including Nandos and this burger meal we did! The burgers are Linda McCartney’s vegetarian pulled pork burgers and they are AMAZING! I cooked up some chilli halloumi to pop on top and on the side, as well as some salt and pepper chips. This was such a lovely dinner and it definitely hit the spot.

Finally earlier this week I made ramen. It’s been BLOODY FREEZING this week in Birmingham and both me and Dane needed something to warm us up, so I decided to cook us ramen. I used Oumph! spiced kebab meat which is vegetarian and it’s okay… But it’s not something I’d pick up often as I find for the price it isn’t worth it. I’m not 100% vegetarian (flexitarian?) but I’m not someone who eats kebabs so I’d rather have this, if that makes sense? 🙂

  • Black Milk Clothing x Pokemon.

Pokemon Day was yesterday and can you believe Pokemon has been around officially for 25 years? I feel fucking old… 😛 I mentioned earlier in this post that I had splurged on some Black Milk pieces towards the end of February and pissed my spending ban UP THE WALL! One of the two pieces I picked up is the Pokemon Dreams Snuggle Suit that I’ve had on my wish list since the collection came out in 2020. I’ve been wearing this on and off toward the end of February and it’s so comfortable to wear during games evenings and chilling with Dane. Black Milk Clothing have their Pokemon 2.0 collection coming out TONIGHT (in the UK anyway…) and I’m planning to buy a couple of things from it. I’m eyeing up the Snorlax snuggle suit but… I don’t think I will. One is enough for me me thinks.

So that is everything from my February monthly favourites! As I said before, February was rubbish for me but writing this post I’ve seen some things I really loved and enjoyed this month, which has made me feel a bit better. 🙂

What were your favourites from February? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time all, take care, keep safe and see you soon!

January Favourites ’21

Guys it’s the first favourites post of 2021 and as I mentioned in the last favourites post of 2020, I’m going to make some changes.

The first change you will have noticed is my favourites post hasn’t been posted on 1st of the next month (aka February). Instead I have decided to post on the last Sunday of the month as it made more sense. I prefer to have my posts go up on once a week and on a weekend, with the occasionally post going up in the week.

Alongside that my favourites will not contain less beauty and more general/lifestyle items, which I started in the previous favourites post back in December (you can read my November Favourites ’20 here)I have decreased my five beauty items to just two now. I thought two was enough to talk about as sometimes I do discover new and older items that I always like to share with you all.

As well as that I will be trying to talk about more random favourites too, whether they be clothing, food, items I’ve purchased and more!

I hope you enjoy the changes I’ve started to bring to my blog. I just want to try and make it more geeky these days. 🙂

Beauty

  • Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion.

I’ve been using this moisturising lotion on my hands throughout the days to help the dermatitis on my hand. My new steroid ointment from the doctor has actually helped my hand the most, but when I first started to use the Aveeno lotion it really did help. My hands would feel so soft in the morning when I woke up and it was almost as if they weren’t mine! This stuff is amazing though and is specifically for people with very dry skin like myself. This one I bought in particular is actually for all over the body, but I use on my hands mainly. I recommend so much if you have skin complaints like myself.

  • Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Cinnamon Bear.

This is something I picked up in the sales just before Christmas and I’ve been wearing it on and off between Christmas Eve and now. I’ve never tried the Too Faced lip plumpers before and whilst I’m not arsed about my lips being huge it can be a bit different. Granted, this doesn’t plump my lips loads, but the colour itself is what I love the most. It’s a light red colour and really does give you a nice pop if you don’t want to wear lipstick but want SOME colour. Plus this will be great to apply over a lip tint for some gloss and that bit of plump. One thing I don’t like about this is the smell. It smells of cinnamon and quite frankly that doesn’t belong in ANY lip product.

So… Now it’s time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month! If there isn’t anything I’ve done I’m not going to mention. Aka reading – so favourite book won’t be mentioned and the same for music too. I haven’t listened to much different than usual this month.

Favourite TV Show – It’s a Sin.

If there is something I have been DYING to share with you this month it’s definitely It’s a Sin, Russell T Davies’ new drama on Channel 4/All 4. I am a massive fan of Davies work and whenever he has brought something new to Channel 4 I’ve watched it as soon as it’s live, this includes Cucumber and Banana. “It’s A Sin follows the story of the 1980s, the story of AIDS, and charts the joy and heartbreak of a group of friends across a decade in which everything changed.” Davies does a great job at writing realistic drama and It’s a Sin to me is his best work yet. This drama will make you smile, cry and feel heartbroken by the end of it. I watched it over a week ago and binge watched it in a whole day. I went to bed really early that evening as I was so mentally drained. We follow a group of friends who have all moved to London for similar reasons, whether it be to study, get away from family or for work. They all live together and all experience the same things, included AIDS. I don’t want to talk too much about this show because I don’t want to worry I spoil it for anyone. If anything it opens your eyes to how the gay community had to deal with AIDS as it came to UK. It reminded me of COVID a little. Give this show a watch, please and make sure to have a box of tissues handy because you’re going to need them. It’s free to watch on All 4 but be wary there will be adverts, but they’re worth it.

Favourite Movie – Saving Private Ryan.

I don’t know if this seems like a strange movie choice this month but I’ve chosen it because… It’s been out 23 years and I’ve never seen it… Everyone I’ve spoken to about it was very much surprised. 😛 Dane recently watched this one day whilst working from home and I only saw snippets due to working myself. However, towards the end of January we had an evening to cuddle and watch a movie. Dane decided to stick this on as I’d never watched it and it was amazing! The story is great (it also reminded me a little of 1917 with the plot) and the acting is AMAZING! To be honest, I find any film with Tom Hanks in is good and always worth a watch. The start of this film is brutal, but true. Throughout the film everything is just told and done really well. I know many will have seen this film, but I’m still going to refrain from sharing any spoilers in case. Since watching this film we’ve gone on a little bit of a war film binge. We’re not watching Band of Brothers, a TV series I’ve never watched. 😛

Favourite Game – Earth Defence Force 5.

Guys this is something else I was really excited to share with you all this month… Even though I’ve hardly played it since I started back at work after Christmas and New Year. This is a game Dane had heard about and thought about playing due to how bad but good it is! He showed me the trailer and said, “I think you’ll hate it…” but as bad as it looked, it looked and sounded comical and I was down for Dane buying it for us to play. This game is LONGGGG to play and from what I’ve seen on YouTube there are 11 hours of footage of people playing, that along is impressive. Me and Dane have spent all day playing this before and not even got through a big chunk of the game. Basically the aim of the game is to kill alien bugs that are attacking Earth. There are some weird frog looking things too, as well as a creatures that looks like Godzilla’s long lost cousins. This game isn’t amazing graphics wise but bloody hell it’s good fun with a group of people. The NPC’s random dialogue alone will have you laughing and telling them to shut the fuck up and stop being dramatic. 😛 I recommend it for sure!

Just a few of my favourite things

  • Razer Kraken Quartz Gaming Headset.

This is by far one of my favourite purchases of January. I bought a Turtle Beach headset back in July but it broke on me last week which I was pissed off about. As I took off the headset after a phone call at work the left earphone literally snapped off! I reported the issue to Turtle Beach and they advised me to reach out to Amazon for a replacement. Amazon don’t stock the headset I bought anymore, so they gave me a refund, which was good! 😀 I bought my Kraken headset the day my Turtle Beach ones broke. In all honesty, I’d wanted to buy the pink Kraken’s back in July but couldn’t justify the price at the time as I didn’t quite know when I was going back to the office at work. These are AMAZING! Both for calls for work, as well as music and calls for D&D games and general games evenings via Discord. They’re not cheap, but I highly recommend them to be honest if you need or want to use a headset like this often!

  • Ray-Ban Glasses.

I went to the opticians at the end of January and found out I need some new glasses due to a prescription change. I actually found out not only do I have an astigmatism but also that the prescription in my right lens is too high for me… I don’t know if this an issue on Boots part back in 2017 or Glasses Direct who I bought them from. Either way I don’t think I’ll go to Glasses Direct again just in case it was on their part. So, I decided to get myself some new Ray-Ban’s and I’ve gone for this opal brown pair and they’re gorgeous! They’re similar to what I have now but are a pinky brown colour. I’m really excited to go and pick them up next week! 😀 I’ll show them off to you when I get them over on my Instagram page (theremightbecoffeeblog).

  • Black Milk Clothing x Animal Crossing K.K. Long Sleeve Oversized BFT (review here).

This is a t-shirt I have really enjoyed wearing in January. It’s such a comfortable and baggy t-shirt and it’s one I’ve worn often during working from home. I often wear it with leggings or joggers for super comfort! A lot of people have asked me what design is on the front, as well as on the sleeves. You can never go wrong with K.K. Slider!

  • McDonalds Katsu Curry Chicken McNuggets.

In 2021 I have decided to only have a takeaway once a month. For January I was firm that our takeaway for the month would be McDonalds so that I could try the new katsu curry nuggets! I love katsu curry and I’m not going to lie, I have a soft spot for McNuggets too! These are REALLY good and the only way I can describe them is McNuggets but better! They’re crispier/crunchier and have a slight curry flavour to them. I have to say, I wish these were permanent. They’ll be gone next month around Valentine’s Day.

  • Danboard Nendoroid.

This is the final item I’ll be talking about this month and it was one of my Christmas presents from Dane, a new Nendoroid and one I’ve been after for aggges! Danbo is from the manga Yotsuba&! – which I haven’t read but always heard things about. It’s by the same author as Azumanga Daioh – which is one of my favourite manga/anime series. I almost bought this Nendoroid whilst I was in Japan but left it. I finally got some batteries into Danbo as his eyes light up! We’re really “funny” with our Nendoroid figures and like to keep them in cabinets so they don’t get damaged or covered in dust, however so far Danbo has sat on our desk so that I have a “buddy” during the days in the week whilst I work and Dane has him during the evenings and weekends. I do really love him and he makes me smile to look at whilst working.

So there you have it guys, my favourites from January! This month really flew by and I’m kind of excited for February now. I have my new glasses to pick up soon, we’re making some changes around the house, new hobbies to play with and more. I’m also excited it’s a shorter month as with my new glasses AND an MOT tomorrow (keep fingers crossed for me that nothing is wrong!) I’m already skint. 😛
