February Wish List ’21

I honestly can’t quite believe it’s February already… 2021 is already flying by and it only feels like yesterday that I was going back to work after the Christmas/New Year break!

I have to be honest here and say, I am on a spending ban! I spent a lot of money before Christmas and I suffered during January due to it. It’s not all bad though as it means I can save up for stuff in the future, especially things to do with my house!

Some of the items on this months wish list I’ve pre-ordered, with one item arriving already which is pretty good! Seriously though guys I’m on a MAJOR spending ban this morning and I might even do it going into March as well, just to try and save lots of money to do stuff to the house. πŸ™‚

  • Kittynaut Soot Sprite Enamel Pin (link)

I really love Kittynaut’s designs, especially the Studio Ghibli related ones. I really like the look of this Soot Sprite enamel pin, which reminds me of a collar pin. The Soot Sprites look so cute and happy with their sugar candy! I’d love to wear this with a shirt on the colour to add something different, or maybe even on a sweater on the neck. I’m definitely going to look in ordering this via their Etsy in the future!

  • Razer Base Station V2 Chroma in Quartz (link)

I mentioned in my monthly favourites that I recently picked up the Razer Kraken Quartz gaming headset and I LOVE IT! I don’t just use it for work, I use it for personal too whilst playing games with friends, D&D sessions with friends and also phone calls with friends via Discord and Messenger. At the moment when I’m not using the headset I wrap the cord around it and keep it on our shared desk. In the future I would really love the Razer Base Station in the matching Quartz colour as not only would it be able to hold my headset on the desk, but it also looks like you can have some USB items plugged into it too, due to the ports at the base. This isn’t something I would buy soon, I’d prefer to wait a while, especially if I can get my own desk in the future.

  • Persona 5 Strikers PS4 (link)

To think when I was in Japan in January 2020, this game was coming out late February 2020. There were no talks of it coming out in the UK and people worried we wouldn’t get it. I knew we would deep down and it’s FINALLY coming out in the UK at the end of February! I made sure to get my copy pre-ordered so I don’t miss out. I pre-ordered from Gamersheek as they have the BEST game prices out there! Plus, if you see a game cheaper elsewhere, but would prefer to buy with Gamersheek, they’ll match the price for you. They’re my go to for games in 2021! Honestly I am really excited for Persona 5 Strikers, but I am disappointed the name “Persona 5 Scramble” wasn’t kept like how it is overseas. If you’d like to read a review all about Gamersheek, make sure to check out this post from last year where I spoke aboutΒ Persona 5: Royal.

  • MartithArt Foxtober Throw Blanket (link)

I’ve had my eye on this blanket for quite a while now and I’d still love to get it but meh spending ban. πŸ˜› I love foxes and I love being snuggly and warm so this blanket is perfect for me. MartithArt appears to have created this during “Foxtober” which I can assume is a drawing challenge for October. The designs are gorgeous and the size of this blanket looks like it would be perfect to pop on my lap whilst working at the desk to keep snug and warm. I’ll definitely pick this up in the future, but not yet due to spending ban.

  • Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Kōrin Kimono Ver. (link)

This is an Nendoroid figure I pre ordered MONTHS ago through YY Kawaii (yykawaiimerch1 on Instagram). I saw it and I knew I had to have it quite frankly. We only own one Miku Nendoroid figure, which is the snowboarding Miku from back in 2016. As Dane is a snowboarder (and I’ve done a little!) we knew we had to get her! However, with the kimono version she just looked so pretty and it sort of reminded us of our Japan holiday too from January 2020. I’m already unsure where she’s going to go once she arrived, but I’m tempted to have her in the office so I can look at her whilst I work. She’s due to arrive in February! Would you guys like to see her reviewed on my blog or Instagram page? Let me know. πŸ™‚

  • Pin & Tonic Sakura Fox T-Shirt (link)

Pin & Tonic is an independent UK artist/store that I’ve always seen floating around social media in the past and eventually followed. I recently got wind of their fox and tanuki/raccoon designs AND a sale on their store, so I went to check them out. I stumbled across this sakura fox t-shirt and have fallen in love with the design! It’s the perfect mixture of my favourite animal, my favourite tree and sakura reminding me of Japan too! I would love to pick this up in the future, as it would be lovely to wear. The colours work so well!

  • Bravissimo Flora Bralette (link)

This is the final item on my monthly wish list and one item that has arrived. This is by far one of my favourite purchases of 2021 so far (spoiler alert, I’ll be talking about it in February’s favourites!) as it’s the most comfortable bra I’ve ever bought! I bought quite a few new bras at the start of 2021 as I knew I was due some new ones, I opted for an old favourite, as well as a new design. I love both, but since working from home wearing a bra all the time is something I’ve… Not… Done… Just being honest! I’ll be honest, I’m not a small busted lady anymore so sometimes my boobs just need a break from the wire, especially if I’m sat at my desk all day and potentially slumping and uncomfortable etc. I’d heard nothing but good things about non-wired bras, but never understood the appeal. I decided to get one myself after seeing good reviews about the flora bralette from Bravissimo. It’s amazing and when payday comes at the end of the month I will be buying another. I’m not going to talk too much here as I want to talk more about it at the end of the month. πŸ™‚

Anyhoo, those are the items I have on my wish list for February! As I’ve said various times throughout this post, I am on a spending ban this month so I’m going to be good. I may even continue it into March, but that won’t stop me from creating another wish list next month! πŸ˜€

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

Until next time all, take care and stay safe. πŸ™‚

December Wish List ’19

How are we already halfway through the first week of December? Oh God, this week is going to quickly and I know it isn’t going to slow down anytime soon either!

I was kind of torn this year whether to just add my wish list into a “Christmas wish list” post for the whole month or to separate them… I’ve decided to go for the latter! I have loads of items on my wish list this month purely for my Japan trip and even just for myself to be honest.

I hope you enjoy the final wish list of the year! πŸ˜€

  • Superdry Gracie Cable Snood Womens Scarf (link)

I could really do with a new scarf not only for the winter ahead but also for my trip to Japan. When I was looking around for a new snood, I found this gorgeous Superdry one! I’m not a massive scarf fan… In terms of “normal” ones and I much prefer a snood. I can just shove it on without any faffing about of wrapping. I really like the look of this one because of the soft borg lining inside. I can only imagine how soft and fluffy it will be during the colder months! I also really like the dark pink colour too. This being said, I would like to see this scarf in person before buying in case I don’t like the colour THAT much. 😦

This is a Kickstarter I want to back so much… But I don’t know if I can justify it. 😦 It finishes in 4 days time and I know I have those days to decide if I want to back, but even so… Dispel Dice are a company I have lusted and looked at since getting into Dungeons & Dragons at the start of 2019. Now they have a Kickstarter out with “affordable” dice sets I would like to back… There are just a few factors that put me off… Price and delivery. You won’t receive the dice until August 2021, which sucks! I’ll see if I decide to back these at the last moment. πŸ™‚

  • River Island Blue Button Front Denim Mini Skirt (link)

If there is something I don’t own any of and would love to wear more, it’s skirts. I either wear jeans, leggings, joggers or dresses. I discovered this skirt last month through Helen Anderson in her “TESTING SIZE 14 HIGH STREET DENIM SKIRTS” YouTube video and I have fallen in love! I wanted to try and pick it up in the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals but I never did. It’s something I’ll definitely take a look into picking up in the Christmas/January sales!

  • Elfen Lied Omnibus Volume 2 (link)

I love Elfen Lied, it’s definitely one of my favourite anime and manga series to date and was actually the first anime I watched and manga I read. So, to say it has some fond memories and a place in my heart is pretty accurate. I already own volume 1 of the omnibus and have even pre-ordered volume 3 ad volume 4. This is a series I plan to dig into and read on days off in the run up to Christmas, as well as during the Christmas holidays from work. πŸ™‚

  • Bravissimo Jessie Skater Dress (link)

This is a dress I REALLY want at the moment! I plan to try it on at some point this week as it’s something I would like to pick up whilst it’s on offer. It’s a gorgeous black dress, which will not only be perfect for work and the party season, but also great for my 30th birthday! I don’t have any “posh” dresses if you will and often gravitate towards the same one I’ve worn for 3 years now, which is a bit shit at the best of times… I just want something pretty I can wear for evenings out with Dane and friends. πŸ™‚ I’ve never bought clothing from Bravissmo but as I love their bras, I’m sure I’ll love this dress too!

  • Animal Crossing Isabelle Plush Pass Case (link)

With my trip to Japan getting closer and closer and mine and Dane’s Suica cards now in our possession, I would really like a nice pass case to use during my trip there! I’ve eyed up this plush Animal Crossing one which is in the shape of Isabelle’s head. It has a handy pull cord on it, so if you attach this to your bag, keys, etc you can easily pull it to wherever you need it to go. It’s not cheap however, but this is something I have asked for for Christmas from Dane too… It’s something I’ll keep my eyes peeled for whilst I’m in Japan too if I don’t manage to get one beforehand.

So that’s my wish list for December overall! I know his months is really boring, but I’m saving all the awesome wish list items for Christmas Eve’s post when I write about my Christmas wish list. πŸ™‚

I can’t believe we’re already into the 4th day of December and Christmas Day is 3 weeks today! How crazy is that, huh? 2019 has really flown by…

Aside from Christmas, what items do you have on your wish list? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below. πŸ™‚

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

February Wish List ’19

I can’t quite believe it’s February already! January really did fly by and to be honest I’m so glad as aside from mine and my mom’s birthdays it was fucking crap. The fact it flew by in a blur was shitty. I wanted to at least get a chance to see January before it was gone.

This being said, I’m using February as a, “this is the month I get my shit together for the rest of the year!” I hope it actually is.

For now however, I’m STUFFED with Korean BBQ and I’m re watching Shameless for the fifth time. I’m actually trying to save up right now so me and Dane can hurry up and book Japan for my birthday, but this being said I’m still going to write my monthly wish list post, because why not. πŸ˜›

As you may have already noticed, for the first time in God knows how many years my monthly wish list post isn’t up on the 3rd of the month. I’ve decided that moving forward that this post every month will now be up on the 4th of every month!

Without anymore delays, let’s get on with the post! πŸ˜€

  • Persona 5 Futaba Sakura Nendoroid (link)

I am so stoked for this Nendoroid being out now! I’m awaiting the delivery of mine from Gamersheek and I can’t wait for her to arrive. I pre-ordered her back in July 2018 so I’ve been waiting for her for over 6 months now. Soon as she arrives she’ll be going next to my Morgana Nendoroid and then before we know it Joker and Queen will be joining them! As soon as she arrives I’ll try and show her off on my blog. I don’t really talk loads about Nendoroid figures on my blog, as in like a dedicated post. Would you guys like that? Let me know if you would like to.

  • Pink Soda Sport Arden Panel Sports Bra (link)

I’ve been going to my pole fitness once a week with my best friend Jacqui and I always forget how much I miss it as soon as I start it up again. I also plan on starting the gym with Dane this month too so I could do with some more fitness clothing. I own one Pink Soda sports bra and whilst it isn’t the most supportive in the world, it’s super comfortable and does the job for what I need it for. I’d love to get this one soon!

  • Pink Soda Sport Fitness Tights (link)

I know these are called fitness tights… So is that another term for leggings? I could do with some more leggings, again for the gym as well as when me and Dane go for walks together. These match the sports bra that I want to get, so it would be nice to have the matching set in all honesty. I’m going to go for a mooch in JD Sports soon to see what goodies I can get from Pink Soda as I really love the brand.

  • Bravissimo Maya Balconette Bra in Plum (link)

If there is a brand I discovered and fell in love with in 2018, it was Bravissimo! I was actually meant to write about it back when I first bought my bras from them, but that never happened. I may end up doing that soon considering it’s been since around July time. I can have a good natter about my experience, as well as which bras I own and why they’re good. ANYWAY this is one of the new styles they’ve brought out in 2019 and it looks GORGEOUS! It looks super comfortable, the colour is really pretty and it just looks fab. It’s not the cheapest in the world, but if it feels comfortable, makes me feel sexy and well does the job, I can’t really complain.

  • Himouto! Umaru-chan Vol. 4 (link)

New month, new manga! I’m not going to lie, I hardly read any manga throughout January and this is purely because I was just too bloody busy. I don’t think I’ll pick up this manga until I’ve caught up with all the series volumes I have right now. This being said, I LOVE this manga so as soon as I can pick this up to read I will for sure! I need to finish watching season 2 of Himouto! Umaru-chan in all fairness.

  • Paperchase Valentines Pink Ombre Heart Pen (link)

This is such a random item on this list, but in one of my most recent emails about Paperchase’s Valentine’s Day collection I noticed this being advertised and I kind of fell in love with it. It’s obviously meant to be a lolly and even though it’s nothing special, I still love the look of it! I’d have it for work to brighten up my pen pot even more so than it already is. My only issue however is, I bet it’s not a black pen! Which I use the most in my job. πŸ˜› I MAY pick it up as for Β£3.00 it’s not a bad price. πŸ™‚

  • Laneige Two Tone Matte Lip Bar in Red Velvet (link)

I really want to try some more Korean beauty products in 2019, especially lip products. I feel like I need more lip tints in my life as I really love doing the “bitten” lip look. I stumbled across the Laneige two tone lip bars and fell in love. I intend to pick some up soon but the one I really have my eye on is this red velvet shade, which will look really nice in colour opaque, as well as blotted out. I don’t know why but the shade colour reminds me of something vintage, which I love even more! If I end up getting this one, or any of the lip bars, I’ll definitely review them! πŸ˜€

So that was my wish list for February! I’m trying to save money to be honest with you as I REALLY want Japan booked out the way, so I can spend the next 11 months saving up spending money. As soon as Japan is booked, you guys will definitely know about it. πŸ˜›

What are you guys wishing for throughout February? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having an amazing start to the week. πŸ™‚
