14 Things I Love

Today is the soppiest day of the year, of course it’s Valentine’s Day and it’s definitely like Marmite… You either love it or you hate it, there is no in between really. Well I say that but I’m one of those in between people… I hate Valentine’s Day for various reasons, but I don’t love it. The only thing I like about it is being able to buy Dane a card and write a soppy as fuck message inside for him. I wasn’t going to this year, but alas on a mini food shop I ended up picking up a card. DAMN!

some_text

So instead of a soppy post like some people may be posting today, I decided to write about 14 things I love instead… 14 stands for the date by the way. 😛

  1. Pokemon – Everyone knows this is one of the things I love and I have done for nearly twenty years now! I love every aspect about it including the games, anime, the figures, etc etc. I could go on about what I love about it. It’s just such an interesting series and is one of the many things that takes me back to my childhood. Mornings spent watching the anime on SM:TV Live, as well as playing the first and second generations on my Game Boy Color during the weekends off school and summer holidays.
  2. Perfume/fragrance – I love wearing perfume, even though on the rare occasion I won’t be in the mood for it, so I won’t wear it. I wear all sorts of different ones, but some of my favourites to name are Thierry Muglar Alien, Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, DKNY Red Delicious, Gucci Envy Me and Dior Addict. I’m sure I can think of more than this mind!
  3. Food – I have always loved food, especially savory food. I would eat bags of crisps over a bar of chocolate any day! I love to eat food, cook food, watch food being cooked, thinking about food, everything you can think of to be honest. I especially love Japanese food, as well as Italian food as well. OH and you can never go wrong with American food as well. One of my favourite things to cook is probably my homemade piri piri fries, just because I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love them.
  4. Lipstick – As the only make up I wear is lipstick I love them so damn much. I love all sorts of lipsticks of course, especially liquid lipsticks. When I first starting to wear lipstick properly I opted for dark pink shades, which moved onto red, then various pink shades and lately I wear a lot of dark shades such as dark raspberry pink, various purple shades and even a dark purple/navy shade lately. I can only see me going darker too! I can’t stand nude shades or light pink, they don’t suit me at all and look awful on me.
  5. Holographic – I am a holosexual through and through and it reminds me of growing up as a teenager and wanting all these things… But sadly I wasn’t able to have them. Due to the whole 90’s trend coming back, of course holographic stuff has too. I only really pick up any holographic goodies if I really like the look of the, and I don’t know why but the holographic look just makes me so happy!
  6. Foxes – These are my favourite animals with dogs and otters coming second and third. I don’t know what it is about them that I love, maybe it’s that they’re ginger… Maybe it’s that they’re cunning… Maybe it’s because they’re fluffy? I don’t know but I think they’re beautiful animals!
  7. Studio Ghibli – One of my favourite anime film studios and the same place that has made one of my favourite films, Spirited Away. I love how creative and unique the stories and characters are that come out of Studio Ghibli, as well as how beautiful the art style is as well. Me and Dane own all of the Ghibli movies to date and I love watching them throughout the year, but especially with people who have never seen them before. I love seeing people fall in love with them.
  8. Lady and The Tramp – I do like Disney but there’s only a handful of the films that I really love and fan over. Lady and The Tramp is my favourite Disney film and one I’ll always keep close to my heart. I just remember watching it when I was a little girl and falling in love with Lady, Tramp and the other dogs. Jock is definitely one of my favourites too! The story is just beautiful and at the time was probably a story line seen in romantic movies, so the fact they brought it to a children’s film was so good.
  9. Goodsmile Company Nendoroid’s – These are little figures based on Japanese anime and manga series, however it has shifted more over to the Western trends such as Disney movie characters (Frozen, Star Wars, Marvel etc) and even some game characters (Animal Crossing, Metal Gear Solid, Uncharted, etc). Both me and Dane LOVE Nendoroid’s and we are constantly eyeing up new ones to buy… They’re not cheap though so they’re definitely a treat whenever we get any. I need to do a post soon about which ones we’re both lusting after.
  10. Duvet Days – This is definitely something I love! I don’t get them as much as I used to due to being busy with work, or the house, or other things. BUT saying this I am currently sat up in bed typing up this post, watching The Last Leg. At this moment in time I cannot possibly complain. 😛 I just love duvet days where I can lie in bed for at least 3 hours on my iPhone scrolling through YouTube and Instagram. These make perfect weekend mornings for me.
  11. Coffee – As a trained barista I love knowing how to make a perfect cup of coffee, but do you know what is even better? Having my own coffee machine to make coffee shop style coffee at home! I LOVE IT! Apart from loving coffee in that way, I also love coffee flavoured things, as well as coffee beans covered in chocolate. I am that weirdo who loves the coffee Revels and Roses. 😛
  12. Bubble baths – I swear I was a mermaid in a previous life! Before all these trends of “being a mermaid” came around I always joked about this. I LOVE baths and I could spend hours in the bath reading books, scrolling through YouTube and Instagram on my phone, and even doing some writing in my journal. Even as a child and teenager I would sit in the bath for hours on end and just add more hot water whenever I felt chilly. Showers I’m not so arsed about, but baths are just heaven to me! I’ve always had a fascination with water too and I don’t know why to be honest, so much so I’ve written stories about water before and various novels as well.
  13. My best friend Gabriella – I mentioned her recently on my Galentine’s Day post, which you can read here. I’ve known Gabriella for nearly 10 years now and I tell you it has FLOWN by! But I love her so much, she is like a sister to me and we get on so well. We talk daily and whether we’re feeling great or like shit we’re always there for each other no matter what. We’ve both supported each other the past month about different things and if I’m ever in the shit and need someone and Dane isn’t around, I know she’ll be there for me no matter what. I love her so much. :’)
  14. Dane – I said Valentine’s Day is soppy but I don’t recall saying there wouldn’t be any on here… 😛 But of course I love Dane. He’s my boyfriend, my best friend, my soul mate and the best person I have ever met. He’s always there for me no matter what and even when I’m a miserable bitch and take stuff out on him, he’s always there to give me a cuddle and be understanding of whatever has happened. I just love him so much, I can’t even describe it. He’s my light in the dark, the apple to my pie and as I’ve started to joke, the stink to my fart. 😛

So those were 14 things I love! I’m sorry this post isn’t anything special but I wanted to do something for today but only worked something out at the last minute. 😛

What 14 things do you love? Please make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time all, take care and whatever you’re doing today, have a lovely day. ^_^

The Chocolate Quarter – Review

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 05 11 pm_zpslmpa20ug.jpg

This review is way overdue on my blog and I feel bad for only getting around to writing it now. To be honest I wanted to save eating all these yummy chocolates that I’ll be talking about today for a rainy day… Today isn’t a rainy day, but I am in the mood for something sweet, and so is Dane who will help me try these chocolates today.

Back at the start of the month I attended a blog event at The Chocolate Quarter, down in the jewellery quarter in Birmingham. The event was amazing, and one of my favourites to date. We go to learn about chocolate, sample some of their goodies, as well as make some chocolates of our own! You can read all about the event here.

At the end of the event we were offered 10% a box of chocolates, so instead of £6.00 they only cost us £5.00. This including the four we made during the event, AND a special Star Wars chocolate to celebrate May 4th (or May the fourth be with you – AKA Star Wars Day) I thought this was a complete bargain for 10 chocolates.

From top to bottom I’ll talk about the chocolates I bought with a description from The Chocolate Quarter website, and then do a small review of each. Oh hello sugar rush! 😛

Now that I have shown them off with their descriptions, it’s onto the reviews! I will be reviewing them in the order that I have shown them above.

Coffee & Cardamom – I LOVE coffee chocolates so I knew I had to pick this one up when I read that it contained coffee… However I was slightly disappointed because I couldn’t take any coffee! Dane could however, so maybe my taste buds just aren’t doing as good today. The centre was a nice creamy/gooey consistency, but not the sort of gooey that goes all over your chin and down your favourite t-shirt. I liked that! The look of this one was plain but also really cute with the little gold coffee bean design on top. I would buy this again, as although I couldn’t taste the coffee, it was still lovely due to the creamy centre.

Sea Salt Caramel – I love salted caramel flavoured things. The nicest salted caramel chocolate I ever tried was some that my friend Gabriella bought me from Thorntons for my birthday last year. Well I can’t decide which I like best! They’re both nice in different ways to be honest. Thorntons has a gooey centre, whilst this one is a chewy caramel centre which has chunks of salt inside. To be honest I think I do prefer Thorntons for various different reasons, but this just ticks all the boxes for me and I would definitely buy this again! The salt is really salty tasting and I bloody love it!

Cappuccino – I have so much to say about this chocolate. It is the best one in the box, both for appearance and for how it tastes. As you can see this is in the shape of a gorgeous little coffee cup with cappuccino inside. It’s dark chocolate which makes the cup itself, and white chocolate to make the foam. However when I bit into this it also had some caramel at the bottom of the white chocolate, whether this was to hold it in place (which I’m sure it was…) I don’t know, but damn it was a nice surprise! I shared these chocolates with Dane, but I really wish I didn’t have to because I could have eaten this all to myself. I will be buying this one again in the future! Especially for my dad as he loves chocolate, novelty things like this, and he drinks cappuccino so it’s a win win situation!

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 06 59 pm_zpsqlxz1k43.jpg

Irish Cream – This is definitely one of my favourites from the bunch. Oh boy do I love this chocolate! It’s got a lovely strong taste of Irish Cream in there, alongside the smooth and creamy centre. If you love alcoholic chocolates, and especially love chocolate such as Bailey’s (which for the record is one of  my favourites!) then you will love this! The look of it is simple with some white chocolate on top, but I like how simplistic it is, considering it packs a punch when you eat it! Gold stars to The Chocolate Quarter for this beauty.

 photo Photo 17-05-2016 1 07 15 pm_zpspl2aaid5.jpg

Freshy – This was one that I pondered over buying for quite some time. I love my lemon and lime tasting things due to how refreshing they are. This is a white chocolate with a lemon and lime citrus mousse in the centre. We liked this one but we weren’t overly keen. Personally I found it was a little sickly due to the white chocolate, but I’m more of a dark chocolate lover so this is probably why. Dane commented saying that he wasn’t sure if the lemon and lime worked with the white chocolate. The one thing I like about this however is how it looked. It reminded me of a marble effect which I thought was really clever. If I was offered this I would eat it, but to buy it again myself… I would prefer to pick up something else.

Another one of the chocolates I mentioned I was given after the event was a Star Wars one, and out of the four we could choose, I decided on a Stormtrooper. This was your bog standard milk chocolate, nothing in the centre etc. It was yummy and I would buy these on their own to be honest, and keep them in a jar in the fridge for rainy days.

So what did I think of all the chocolates overall?

Like? Cappuccino and Irish Cream. These two were perfect chocolates for me, and I adored them so damn much.

Dislike? Freshy. What a massive let down in comparison to the others. I’m glad this was the first one I tried because it set me up for some amazing goodies later on.

Would I go to The Chocolate Quarter and buy from them again? A definite yes! I really want to buy the two I liked again, as well as try some of the other ones they have up for grabs, oh and the ones I got to try for Father’s Day at the event.

Here is a list of ones I want to try next time; Jewellery Porter, Smoked Bacon, Dairy Free Peppermint, Pistachio Halva, and Sea Salt Praline.

Overall I really do love the chocolates I bought! They were all yummy, and are now in a happy place in mine and Dane’s bellies.

Will you be checking out The Chocolate Quarter anytime soon? If so which chocolates do you have your eyes on buying? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

A-Z: Get To Know Me!

I recently found a post of the same title by Be over at Love From Be (link) and I just loved the post so much. It was just a nice and different way of getting to know the blogger you enjoy reading, or have just discovered. So I thought I would give it a go myself! Make sure to go and check out Be’s blog, as she’s so lovely and down to Earth.

Anime – I love anime so much, it’s something I have enjoyed watching from a young age, and the older I’ve got the more anime shows I have found myself watching. Some of my favourites are Elfen Lied, Nana, Azumanga Daioh, Himouto! Umaru-Chan, Sword Art Online, and Fullmetal Alchemist.

Blogging – I didn’t want to have to use this as the letter B, but I really couldn’t think of anything else! I love my blog. It’s my number one hobby, and something I would love to turn into my job in the future. I’ve been running my blog for four years now, and I continue to carry on with it for as long as possible.

Coffee – Well, the title of my blog does have the word coffee in it! I do really like coffee, so much so I worked in Costa Coffee for nearly three years. That is probably the first time I’ve admitted to working in Costa on my blog. 😛 My favourite coffee is vanilla flat white. I love my coffee strong! 😛

Dirty Sanchez – One of my favourite shows has to be this. I love not only that the guys are from the UK, but I also love how they do some worse off stuff than what Jackass have ever done. I’m sad that they aren’t still around, but I’ll always think of Dirty Sanchez as one of the shows I grew up watching and loving.

Evanescence – My favourite band for over ten years now. I fell in love with them when I first heard “Bring Me To Life” on KERRANG! Radio. I ended up buying their first album Fallen and listening to it none stop. I still have that album to this day! I have seen them live twice, and hope to go again in the future. I’ve also met all the band mates (apart from Amy!) from the Evanescence album days. My favourite song is “Imaginary”.

Fuerteventura – This place is legit my second home. I’ve been going there since the age of 5 and I love it. I didn’t go for 10 years and it broke my heart, I forgot how much I loved it and how amazing it was there. I really want to live there one day… But we shall see. I would want to work in a cocktail bar, or hell even run my own on the beach! 😛

Gaming – I’m a gamer. Not a hardcore one, but I still love to play my games! I’m also a console collector too, and I currently own 7 consoles (Nintendo SNES and GameCube, Playstation, PS2, PS3, and PS4, and an Xbox 360), as well as my handheld collection of the original Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS Lite, and my Nintendo 2DS. Go me! But I love playing games. Currently obsessed with the LEGO games. I can’t wait for the Star Wars one to come out.

Hyper Japan – I went to my first Hyper Japan convention last summer in London and I loved it so damn much! It wasn’t as good as I was hoping it was going to be, but I still enjoyed myself. I really hope that me and Dane can attend the winter one this year, seeing as we went to the summer one last year.

iPhone – I own an iPhone 6 and I love it to bits! It’s by far the best phone I have owned to date, and I just love it. It feels nice to hold, is great to look at, and to be honest my new phone case just makes me happy. I only got it in the post yesterday when I got home from work and it’s just so adorable. Who can say no to a sleeping Mew, huh?

Jackass – Another one of my favourite shows. I grew up watching this too funnily enough! I would skip school to stay at home eating toast and watching TV shows on MTV. Or I would stay awake all night watching them on Viva. God those were the days! I was gutted when Ryan Dunn died too by the way. It really hit home as he was my favourite one on the show. I’m sad that this has also come to an end, but I love Bad Grandpa, it’s amazing!

Kawaii – A Japanese word for cute. I love cute things and often say kawaii about them to try and be cute myself. It rarely works and I end up looking like a complete loser. 😛

Lipstick – This is really the only makeup I wear, and I’m pretty damn proud of that! I love lipstick, and I’ve recently started to get braver in wearing darker lip shades than I already wear. I love liquid lipsticks the most right now. My favourite brand being Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I also love my MAC lipsticks too, my favourite shade will always be Rebel. I love wearing reds, dark pinks, and purples. Can never get enough of them!

Manga – I love reading manga. I started to read it back in 2011 when I finish university and had time on my hands. I started with Elfen Lied, then moved onto Azumanga Daioh, and Nana. I currently have some Nana to finish reading and then I’ll be moving onto the Sword Art Online series. I need to read the Attack On Titan manga too… But I only have enough time on my hands for one thing at a time.

Nendoroid – These are the awesome figures that me and Dane collect, and we really do love them! We have a nice little collection going at the mostly, which are mostly Dane’s. I only have 3 at the moment whilst he has (from memory) 10 figures… My collection is really lame in comparison! Good Smile recently announced they were creating a Deadpool Nendoroid, so me and Dane are really excited for him!

Ocean – I love the ocean. I love how beautiful it looks and sounds with the colours, and the crashing and gentle swishing noises. I finally got to swim in the sea/ocean on my holiday last January with Dane and I loved it so damn much! I can’t wait to do that again someday.

Pokemon – Since the age of 6 I have loved Pokemon, and that love is still just as strong now 10 years later. I still play the games, lust after the cute plushies (as you’ll have seen from my recent wish list post here), and get excited when any new news comes out to do with the franchise. I don’t care if I’m a 26-year-old woman, I love Pokemon! 😛

Queens Of The Stone Age – One of my other favourite bands, and one I really want to see soon! I have always ended up not going to see them live due to having no money, no one to go with, or them playing too far away from home. When they tour again however I won’t let the chance slip away!

Red – Not my  favourite colour (that’s purple) but it’s my colour of choice clothing wise! I love the colour red and how bold, and sexy it looks. It also suits me due to my warm yellow skin tone, as well as my brown hair and eyes. I’m after a gorgeous red rain coat at the moment, but alas I haven’t found much.

Studio Ghibli – This is my Disney. You know everyone loves Disney movies? Well I love Studio Ghibli movies. Me and my boyfriend between us have pretty much all of the films on DVD and whenever a new one comes out we try to go and watch it at the cinema. My favourite is Spirited Away, it always has been and I’m pretty sure it always will be. I do rather like Grave of The Fireflies, even though it’s a really sad film.

Teachers – Another TV show I grew up watching! This used to be on Channel 4 back in the day when I was still at school myself! It always made me want to be a teacher deep down due to how much fun all the teachers had both in and outside of school. Alas that hasn’t happened… My favourite season is probably season 2, but I love them all!

Image taken from We Heart It

Umaru – I am legit Umaru… Constantly hermitting away in my room playing games, eating crap, reading manga, and lusting after things I can’t afford to buy. I’m not cute like her though… Just a very sad 16-year-old stuck inside someone 10 years older than herself… Oh dear. 😛

Vitamin D – This is an odd one, but I actually recently found out I have a vitamin D deficiency… Which of course sucks but I’m currently on medication to help it. The little pills I get are tiny blue ones, which remind me of The Matrix. 😛

Writing – I love to write. I do it for my blog, I write books and stories in my spare time, and I even studied critical and creative writing for my masters degree (as well as for my BA too…). So it is safe to say I love writing. 😛 Need I say more than that???

X (I apologise but I couldn’t think of anything with this letter…)

Yankee Candle – I love these candles! They’re my candle of choice whenever I go to buy any new ones, so I’m always burning them at home. I currently have Christmas Eve burning at the moment as I’m trying to use up all my  tea lights and votives. 🙂

Z (I apologise but I couldn’t think of anything with this letter…)

Image taken from We Heart It

So that was my A-Z about me! Thanks again to Be for posting about this, as if she hadn’t I might not have gotten the chance to have a go at it myself. I also apologise if any of my answers were lame… 😛

Will you be having a go at talking about yourself through an A-Z post? Make sure to let me know if you do so I can read yours!

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

October Wish List

Finally after months without one, I finally have a new wish list out!

I’m currently sat in Xscape in Milton Keynes, watching my boyfriend and his friend snowboarding. I’m sad that I’m not able to join them, but my time will come.

So whilst they go off snowboarding, I’m sat in the cafe watching them on the slope and writing up a wish list post. I’m using my boyfriends MacBook Pro, as he has Photoshop, which I lost on my old laptop when it died on me.

So, I have plenty of lovely things to show you, so let’s get on with the post! 😀

October Wish List

  • Heart Elbow Patch Jumper from ASOS – £22.00.

I noticed this jumper from ASOS months ago and have been pinning over it ever since. I have pleather skater skirt just like what the model is wearing in the picture, so in the autumn and winter months I’d be wearing that sort of outfit out during the day and in the evening. I think this jumper would also look lovely with a tartan skirt of some skinny fit jeans, teamed with boots of course, or creepers. I love the little heart-shaped elbow patches, they just make it look really girly and cute. You can also get this in black with brown elbow patches, but I didn’t like the black and brown combination.

  • Sweetheart Dress by Wal G from Topshop – £30.00.

This lace dress by Wal G comes in loads of different colours, but I opted for the bordeaux shade, as I thought it would look gorgeous throughout the autumn and winter season this year. I love lace dresses for this time of year too. For it being stocked in Topshop I was amazed at how cheap it is and if it wasn’t for being so poor at the moment, I’d have bought it by now. This would look lovely during the day and the evening as it would look great with a pair of boots, creepers or even some spiked flats, of course with my spiked pleather jacket to match. I’d mostly wear this dress with my navy military coat, or what I like to call my Sherlock coat. 😛

  • Burgundy Fox Print Jumper from New Look – (Was £24.99 when I wrote this post) £12.00.

When it comes to chilly weather, you can NEVER have enough jumpers and with bonfire night and even the Christmas German Market looming upon us before we know it, I’ll be needing as many snuggly jumpers as possible and as burgundy is one of my favourite colours and foxes one of my favourite animals… It’s as if this jumper was made for me! It looks super soft and snug and as soon as I get spare cash I’m going to go into New Look to try it on. I’d definitely team this with black skinny fit jeans and shorts, as it’ll look and feel lovely. Teamed with boots and a warm coat and I’ll be toasty warm all autumn and winter!

  • DC Rebound Hi Se from DC Shoes – £35.00.

I love DC SHoes as a company, so I of course love their footwear! I’ve owned a pair of DC Rebound Hi shoes since I was 18/19 years old and they’re still lasting me now, however they’re white and very much neon and even though I love them so dearly, I would like a darker coloured pair that I can wear throughout the colder months. I’ve been keeping my eye on these since May and every other month the price of these has gone down. Eventually I will buy these, I love the navy and white, but I especially love the red bandana style pattern on the shoe itself. It’s only minor on the shoe but it looks so nice. I saw someone wearing these on a train ride to my boyfriends a couple of weeks back and even though the woman who wore them had smaller feet than me (size 3 at a guess, I’m a 7!) they looked very comfortable and I regret not asking her if they were as comfortable as they looked!

  • Cut Out High-Waisted Black Skirt With Shoulder-Strap from Choies – £25.99.

I follow meowismful’s blog via Bloglovin’, but I’m also a subscriber to her YouTube channel and when she spoke about this skirt on one of her haul videos, I just fell in love with it! It’s really grunge and I think it would look beautiful teamed up with jumpers, quirky t-shirts and worn with creepers is a must too! I think I’d be inclined to wear this skirt all year round and as it’s a one size fits all, I’d certainly hope it would fit me, as I have quite a big bum and skirts sometimes ride up, it can depend on the material. This does remind me of something I’d have seen being worn by someone on Tumblr, which gives it a massive thumbs up in my books!

  • Pinnafore 2 For Dress from Warehouse  – £35.00.

I saw this dress over on alittleboatsailing’s blog two months ago and just fell in love with it so much! There’s something gothic about it that I like and I think it would be lovely worn in the winter time with my big red coat and my boots, it would give it a bit of edge I think. However I did go into Warehouse to buy this but they didn’t have any left in my size, so I was told, “If you go onto the website you can get Warehouse to send us your size for you to buy from here.” So as soon as I got home I did just that, that was back towards the end of July and my dress still hasn’t been shipped to the stored I needed it to go to, which to me is just wrong and bad customer service. This has put me off buying this dress a little bit, but that being said it’s so damn pretty that I just need it in my life!

  • Vans Sk8 Hi Marvel Spider-Man Trainers – £65.00.

When I heard about this I went to go and look at them on Schuh’s website straight away and let’s just say, I fell in love and contemplated getting myself overdrawn… Bu I was smarter than that and have waited patiently for them. I know these are on my Christmas/Birthday list for someone to buy me or for myself to save up for and sadly buy myself as some sort of self present. I heard that the design on these is perfect and that they look better in the flesh than they do on the pictures and they were right. The front of the shoe where its red is suede and has a beautiful web print on them, perfect for any Spider-Man fan, like myself. As you all know I love Spider-Man and to have these to wear out and about would be a dream come true. I love Vans trainers, they’re so comfortable and my 7-year-old Vans trainers haven’t let me down yet and are as comfortable as they were the day I bought them back in 2006. I’d wear these trainers with skinny jeans and maybe baggy jeans. These are what I would wear when I’m not feeling up to making an effort or if I’m walking around a lot. I wonder if I’ll get them for Christmas… *hint hint* 😉

  • Natural Bamboo Cute Fawn Handmade Phone Cover from and by Little Doe – £18.99.

I’m a fan of Little Doe’s jewellery, she likes foxes and deers like myself and when Scarlet posted a picture of this phone case on her Facebook page, I was hooked instantly and knew I just needed this cover for my iPhone! It’s made out of natural bamboo and has a gorgeous picture of a female fawn on it. You can have it customised too by picking from a selection of colours (pink, black, red, lavender, yellow & mint green) that you would like to have for the fawns rose, I’ve already decided that I would like mint green for mine. You also don’t have to own and iPhone 5 to become an owner of this gorgeous case, it’s also available for the iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy S4. I can’t wait to get my hands on one and when Scarlet announced she would be bringing out designs with foxes on, I felt ecstatic! I can’t wait! 😀

  • Barry M Matte Nail Paints from Barry M’s website, Superdrug & Boots – £3.99 each.

When I heard that Barry M were bringing out matte nail paints I was pretty excited about it and the fact that they’re all named after coffee related things just made me laugh… Because I work in a coffee shop of course! So anyway, you get five different shades to choose from and whilst I don’t want all of them, I probably want most! You have Espresso (matte black), Crush (red wine), Caramel (coffee brown), Vanilla (light grey) and Mocha (a dark brown). All the shades are beautiful but the ones that are catching my eyes the most are definitely Espresso, Crush and Vanilla. I could see me wearing Espresso to death over the winter period as I love wearing black nail polish and for Espresso to look matte and leather like when you wear it, it appeals to me a lot. By the time this post goes live, these polishes will be available to purchase in both Superdrug and Boots stores.

Well that was my wish list for this month! I’ve really missed making wish lists and as my boyfriend is lovely enough to let me use his MacBook Pro to write-up and edit posts together for images, I think my wish lists will see a quick return to my blog!

What have you seen that you hope to add to your wish list for October? Let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you have a good weekend.
