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! 😀

  • 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. 🙂

  • 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. 🙂

  • 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. 🙂 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. 🙂

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. 🙂

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

7 Games I’m Excited For

If there is one thing I would love to write more about on my blog, it’s games and how much I love gaming! I love it just as much as reading manga, watching anime and even writing on my blog! 😛

I really want to start writing more about games and I intend to write more about it all from now on, but please bear with me as it might take me a while to these kind of blog posts written.

For now though I will be writing about games I’m excited for in the future. I won’t just be talking about 2018, but I’ll be going into 2019 too as a couple of games I’ll be mentioning here won’t be out until then.

I really hope in advance that you like this post!

  • Marvel’s Spider-Man – Out September 7th 2018 on PlayStation 4

What a way to kick start this list! When this was first announced I was so nostalgic and excited! One of the first games I played fully on my PlayStation was Spider-Man and I loved it so much. Looking back I actually think it was this game that started off my love of superheroes and comic book characters. When E3 showed a trailer for it this year it just made me even more excited for it to come out. This is a game me and Dane have on pre-order already and we cannot wait to play it together. I’m not going to lie, I also wanted the limited edition Spider-Man PS4 that is coming out with the game too, but meh money. The game just looks impressive and I really hope it brings back the nostalgic feels of 10 year old Nat playing the first PlayStation Spider-Man game in her bedroom after school and on weekends.

  • Super Mario Party – Out October 5th 2018 on Nintendo Switch

If there’s a game me and Dane have always loved playing together on both the Nintendo Wii and the 3DS it’s the Super Mario Party games! They’re great for playing on lazy Sunday’s, at parties and just in general when you want to play a game but don’t have a clue what to play exactly. We’ve wanted some more games for the Switch but we’re a bit stumped as to what 2 player games we can get, but now we’ve noticed this is coming out we’ll probably get it around Christmas time!

  • LEGO DC Super-Villains – Out October 19th 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

I’m a saddo, I love the LEGO games but who COULDN’T not love the LEGO games to be honest with you?! They’re really chilled to play, funny and great for anyone of any age to play. Since the first LEGO games came out I’ve played the majority of them. Over the years I’ve not bought them as much to play but I love specific ones such as Harry Potter (even though I’m not a massive HP fan!), Star Wars and LOTR’s and The Hobbit. I remember playing the first LEGO Batman game where you could play as both good and bad characters. I loved being able to play as a villain so the fact that we now have a game dedicated to it is pretty awesome! 😀 I’ll definitely be pre ordering this sooner rather than later!

  • Spyro Reignited Trilogy – Out November 13th 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

I’m not going to lie, as I was starting to write this post yesterday I got an email from where I pre ordered this from letting me know that the release date has been pushed back. I’m gutted but it’s for decent reasons! Toys For Bob have stated that it won’t be perfect for their original release date (21st September 2018) so that’s the reason for pushing it back. I’m still gutted though, I was so excited to play this game on my day off work as well as for that weekend. Meh I guess I’ll just have to wait. It just kind of sucks that it’s out a couple of days before Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee. I can’t play two games at exactly the same time! 😛 I loved the Spyro games growing up, especially Spyro 2 and I was super excited to play it! Alas I’ve got to wait now until November… Unless I dig out the original and give that a go.

Pokemon: Let's Go! Eevee! + Poke Ball Plus

  • Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! & Pokeball Plus – Out November 16th 2018 on Nintendo Switch

This is definitely the game I am most excited about on this list! I remember when the first trailer came out for it and Dane woke me up at 6am to show me the video on his phone! I was pissed off that he woke me up so early, but when I realised what it was for I was ecstatic! I love that there are 2 versions to choose from, but I knew I wanted Eevee. I pre ordered this as soon as I found it at a decent price for both the game and the Pokeball Plus! Smyths is the best place to get it from as you save £5.00 on your order if you go and collect in store. I’m glad it’s now a new story and really like that they’re following Pokemon Yellow. The thing I think that I love the most is that it’s two player so me and Dane can play the game together! It’s amazing that they brought this into the game and it’s something I’ve wanted the Pokemon games to have for the longest time. I honestly cannot wait to play this with Dane when it comes out! This is a game I’ll be talking about for ages on my blog when it’s out.

  • Persona 5: Dancing In Starlight – Out 4th December 2018 on PlayStation 4

YES THIS FINALLY HAS A RELEASE DATE! Ahem… Apologies… BUT I have been so on edge about when this game is coming out and I didn’t think it was going to be until 2019 to be honest with you. Thankfully it’ll be out before the end of 2018 and I am super happy about that! I loved Persona 5 so much and it’s for sure become one of my favourite game series alongside Pokemon! This is out in Japan now and has been since May (from memory…) which is pretty cool, but it means trying to avoid any of the story etc. I’m currently playing Persona 4: Dancing All Night and so far it’s been more story than game play, which is bleh. I wouldn’t mind story in Persona 5 though! 😛 This is something I really want to pre order but… I probably shouldn’t. I know this would make an ideal Christmas present for someone who doesn’t know what to buy me, but all the same I WANT IT! 😀 We shall see, I’ll soon update you guys on if I’d pre ordered it.

  • Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth – Release date TBC out on Nintendo 3DS

This only recently got announced at the start of August and loads of Persona fans have been excited for it and since it being revealed, the community has gone CRAZY! I’m not going to lie I’m yet to play Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth and I really want to download it asap to play! I wanted to actually pick up the physical copy of the game to play but it costs too much these days, which in turn sucks. With the Persona 5 babies being in this game I really need to get it to play! As I said in the title, it’s yet to be given a release date here in the UK, but as soon as I find out, I’ll be pre ordering it for sure.

So there are my seven games that I’m actually really excited about coming out! Whilst writing this post I was talking to Dane about which games I was going to add and asked him to give me a hand as I was worried I was forgetting some games. Alas I was and he reminded me of quite a few! He asked me if he could mention a couple of games he’s excited for too, so I said he could to round up this post.

  • Shenmue I & II – Out August 21st 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

I played the first Shenmue back on the Dreamcast and it was a groundbreaking game for its time so when I saw it up for pre order on the Xbox One store I ordered it straight away.

  • Battlefield 5 – Out October 19th 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC

I have always preferred the Dice Battlefield games over the COD series, played BF1 for a short period but got bored after a while. Whilst I am ignoring the historically inaccuracies I am hoping the game play is a return to form.

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 – Out October 29th 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

There is very little I need to say about my anticipation for this. Play the first one and watch the trailers, this game will be excellent.

  • Fallout 76 – Out November 14th 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC

The first multiplayer Fallout game. Count me in.

Thanks to Dane for adding some of the games he’s excited for! I’m equally excited for some of those too, but he’s far more excited than I am. 😛

What games are you looking forward to playing? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

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

2015 Top 5 Favourites!

Well at midnight tomorrow 2015 will be officially over, and a part of me is so damn happy. I hated this year for various reasons, mostly due to stress, and my anxiety going from good to worse. Alas, 2016 is looking bright already and I really hope it is my year to improve myself and begin a new and exciting life with my boyfriend.

However, something I did like about 2015 was my blog, and how much it has gone from strength to strength. One of my regular monthly posts being my monthly favourites, and I couldn’t go without mentioning all my favourites from the year.

So here are my favourites from 2015!

  • Benefit The POREfessional Face Primer

If there is a product I have discovered this year and truly fallen in love with, it is this one. I used to only use this on my t-zone where my skin would look shiny. This has a matte affect to it, so it was leaving my oily t-zone go away. However, I didn’t find it was working just on my t-zone so I started to use it all over my face, and it worked a hell of a lot better! I’ve nearly finished my first tube now, but I have another one already which I bought before I went on holiday. I have used this throughout the year, and it’s always done wonders for my skin.

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Masochist (review)

I LOVED Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks this year! I haven’t owned Masochist and Hoe Hoe Hoe THAT long, but even so I love them. I get nothing but compliments about them from people at work, people in general, family, and friends. They just stay on all day long, and look gorgeous and eye catching too. I hope to own more of these in 2016… I’m after the Valentine’s Day shade next, and Abused.

  • Dior Addict Eau de Parfum

My mom bought me this perfect at the start of the year whilst we were on holiday and it is probably one of my most reached for scents this year. I really can’t describe what it is like. So I’ll just insert a quote from The Perfume Shop here, “A sophisticated oriental fragrance with a floral heart, for the passionate, intuitive woman who ignores dictates and follows her own rules. The Dior Addict attitude is best incarnated by its compelling heart note of the Jamaican ‘Queen of the Night’ a rare and elusive flower that blooms only for a few hours and is considered the soul of enchantment. Intensely seductive.” It is a very unique scent and reminds me of a mature, sweet smell. It’s right up my street either way, lasts for ages, and I can’t wait to wear it more throughout 2016.

  • L’Occitane Zesty Lime Hand Cream

I own so many of these hand creams and I only realised recently whilst having a clear out of my beauty drawer. I took one on holiday with me to use everyday and it was really lovely to use. I haven’t been using it so much at home since I got back from holiday, but this seems to be one of the only things that keeps my hands lovely and soft, even with my eczema flaring up! It also smells absolutely amazing, really zesty as the name suggests, and fresh. I have the lip balm to match, which is really to use nice in the summer, the same with the hand cream really.

  • MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Pressed Powder

I received this powder for Christmas from my mom last year, and I still have some left! Even if I have hit pan… This is an amazing pressed powder and one I was going to repurchase, but my mom has bought me a new one by Laura Geller. It’s just so smooth to apply to the skin and a little bit really does go a long way. I use it over the top of my POREfessional primer and it sets it for the day! It has a handy mirror inside too so when I used to have this for on the go it was really handy. I intend to finish this soon and I’ll probably buy myself another one soon enough, as for just over £20 it is a complete bargain for how long it has lasted me!

So those were my five favourite products from 2015! I would have mentioned more, but I wanted to make it look more condensed down to beauty products I really loved, and couldn’t really live without in 2015.

I will of course continue with my monthly favourites, the next one being at the start of February now! They will remain to be 5 top items of the month, like what I did throughout 2015.

What were your favourite beauty products of 2015? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until 2016, take care all and have a Happy New Year! ^_^

December/Christmas Wish List

Yes it’s finally December, the month of Christmas and splurging on the ones you love! I’m currently not in the UK, instead I’m basking in some warmer weather on holiday. However that doesn’t mean that I’m not thinking about Christmas looming and what presents I wish to buy for my loved ones… Of course what gifts I would like to receive myself.

As I do every year, this is my December/Christmas wish list! It was pretty hard to do because there isn’t much I want that I haven’t already mentioned in previous wish lists.

  • Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel

If there is one thing I love about Lush Christmas, it’s when they bring back their old classic Snow Fairy. I’ve only ever owned one huge bottle of this stuff, which surprises me as I love it so much. It reminds me of the children’s medicine Calpol, in both the shade and scent. Now Lush have brought out their huge 1kg bottles, I want to get one for Christmas as a present is possible, or I’ll treat myself to some before Christmas. Either way, I’ll be getting some yummy Snow Fairy in my life this year!

  • Yankee Candle in Christmas Eve

Regular readers of my blog will know how much I love Yankee Candle’s. Lately I haven’t been burning them as much, but as soon as I’m back from my holiday I’ll be burning my Christmas scents in preparation for the big day. I have my eye on three of the Christmas scents, but this one is at the top of the list. I’ve smelt Christmas Eve year after year and always lusted after it. It smells fruity, yet warm. Not a sickly scent at all! It doesn’t particularly remind me of Christmas to be honest like some of Yankee Candle’s other scents, but even so it is still a lovely scent and one I would like to add to my collection.

  • Pokemon Center Chiku-Chiku Sewing Vulpix Plush

I love Pokemon, and due to how much I love it, I hate that I can’t live in Japan to be able to regularly visit the Pokemon Center stores. However, some lovely people over there as well as in the UK will buy products and sell them to desperate and sad people like myself. eBay is one of the places that is great for picking up Pokemon Center items, and it is there where I have seen this adorable Vulpix plush. I am such a huge nerd when it comes to Pokemon, so I’m even more so of one when it comes to plushies. My favourite part about this one is the tails, they just look so adorable and realistic. I just need this plushie in my life!

  • Pandora Christmas Puppy Charm

Every Christmas, birthday, and anniversary I ask for a Pandora charm, or at least hint as it which ones I like. It’s a good time of year for an extra special treat like this and this year Pandora have brought out some really nice Christmas charms, including this one. The majority of charms on my Pandora bracelet are all animal themed, this wasn’t done on purpose either. I love puppies, so this cute little Christmas puppy charm is a must have for me! With his cute little Father Christmas hat on too, what more can you ask for?

  • Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet EDT

At the time of writing this post (a week before it’s due to be published!) I should have bought this for myself either at duty-free before getting on the plane, or even whilst I’m on my holiday as a treat to myself. I don’t need anymore perfume to be fair, but I am a perfume collector, it has to be said. Plus I don’t intend to take any on holiday with me, so I shall be picking this up to keep me happy during my two weeks away. I used to really dislike EDT perfumes due to them not lasting that long, or having a strong scent, but these days I sometimes opt for them due to those reasons. I don’t know if it’s due to age, but strong perfumes sometimes give me headaches of late and it kind of sucks. So I often opt for something lighter. Some EDT perfumes tend to last just as long as EDP so I don’t see the issue myself. This will be lovely and light to wear throughout the day, and in the evening for when I don’t fancy anything heavy.

  • The Unloved DVD

I love this film! I would watch it online monthly without delay but these days I cannot seem to find it lately. I didn’t know it was available to buy on DVD until recently, and now it’s something I want to add to my collection. I contemplated picking this up myself but I may as well leave it for someone to buy for me, or even pick up myself if I get any Christmas money. It’s written and directed by Samantha Morton (most known role being Minority Report) and is based on her experience in the UK care system. It is true at times due to this, and is such a wonderful, and hard-hitting film. I recommend everyone to watch it if you haven’t done so already.

  • Olivia Burton Woodland Squirrel and Bunny Watches

Just to get things straight first of all, I don’t want both of these. I like them both yes, but I just can’t decide which I prefer, which is why both are featured in this post. In the blogging world Olivia Burton watches are big, and a must have item. I myself am not a huge fan of watches. I wear one yes, but I’m not obsessed with how it looks and such. I never really have been. As long as it looks lovely, doesn’t get in the way, and most importantly tells me the time… I’m happy! Everyone was obsessed with one of her watches that featured a bee (this one to be precise) and it is gorgeous, don’t get me wrong but it didn’t appeal to me. I recently had a look around the website just to be nosey, and see if she made a watch with a fox on… Although she doesn’t have one with the little orange, sly cutie on, she does infact have some woodland animal themed watches, two of them that I now have my eye on and will be talking about on this post. First of all we have the squirrel watch, a gorgeous dark brown and gold watch with an adorable squirrel on the face. This is a simple and classic watch, with a cute twist, and reminds me of the sort of thing I would wear in autumn due to the colour scheme. The second watch is a cute little bunny watch, a more girly watch than the first due to the rose-pink and silver colour scheme, and who can say no to the cute little bunny? This one is a must have for any girly girls out there, and bunny lovers alike. This is definitely a more spring and summer watch due to the colour scheme. I am swaying more towards the squirrel due to the colours, but I also then sway to the bunny as it just looks that little cuter to me. I guess I just wish that Olivia Burton would bring out a fox watch! Then I wouldn’t have this dilemma…

Either way, that is the end of my December/Christmas wish list! I could have probably put more on here, but alas I guess I don’t really want all that much.

So, what are you after for Christmas? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time all, take care and I’m off to soak some more rays!

Lush Halloween & Christmas 2015 LEAKED! Part Two – Christmas

It’s here! Part two, and it’s going to be a long post. There is more information about the Christmas products than there is about the Halloween ones. Apart from the gifts, everything that is on offer looks to have been leaked, which is pretty exciting! I don’t know what September 15th will hold, but from what I have read from official UK Lush stores on Instagram, the winter range (Halloween and Christmas) will be out at the start of October, SO we have less than a month to wait! Exciting huh?

Without further ado, I’m going to share with you all what we’ll be getting awesome for Christmas this year.

Bath Bombs (and one Bath Melt):

Ignoring the bath melt at the bottom, this is the line up for the bath bombs! Not including Lord Of Misrule (as that’s a Halloween product) there are 10 bath bombs all together, 2 of them being new, whilst the rest are returning products.

I am of course really happy to see that So White is back for another year as it’s my favourite bath bomb from Lush and always reminds me of Christmas time. I remember when it was teeny, but it’s really evolved over the years, which is great to see. Alongside that I’m happy to see the return of Shoot For The Stars, as I loved it when it first came out, but never got to try it last year. I’m also glad to see that Father Christmas and Golden Wonder are back, as I got to try Golden Wonder thanks to the Boxing Day sales, and luckily have one left, which I’ll be using soon! It’s such a gorgeous bath bomb and I’ll be stocking up as and when I can. As for Father Christmas I wanted to try that so much last year as it shares its scent with Snow Fairy, my favourite from Lush! I’ll be making sure I try it this year.

The one product I am SUPER excited about is Yog Nog. Oh my GOD! I loved the soap last Christmas and bought myself some when I did some shopping in Lush, and you know what? I STILL own it. I haven’t used it, and it’s still in the packaging. I intend to start using it soon, but now that there will be a bath bomb out with the same scent, I’ll be buying these up as much as possible. Inside the bath bomb there is a luxury bath oil and also contains some bubble bar grating so this bubbles up when popped into the bath. Isn’t that just the perfect bath bomb???

There is only one bath melt being released this year, which is of course Snow Angel. I’m quite sad to see there will only be one as I really wish Lush would bring back the old Snow Fairy Bath Melt. That was probably one of my favourite Lush products from Christmas in 2009/2010 and they never brought it back. Sad faces all round.

Bubble Bars & Resusable Bubble Bars:

I’m really excited for some of the newbies that are coming our way with the bubble bars! There are 5 altogether, 3 of them being new and all of them sound amazing! I always love the bubble bars that Lush come out with, but this year they just look and sound really lovely.

Every year I love that Lush bring back Candy Mountain, even though it is just a nicer looking version of Creamy Candy. There are quite a few bubble bars that have gone this year, so Lush have had to make sure they replace them with goodies, which they have done! I’m going to be trying ALL the new ones. Five Gold Rings sounds really creamy and delicious, and looks really nifty too. I just hope it isn’t too glittery, otherwise I may just have to leave it… I hate when bath products are glittery, I get covered in it! Peeping Santa is another one which sounds delicious! It sounds like it’ll smell of yummy strawberries, and you can never go wrong with something like that. It would probably go really nice with So White Bath Bomb to give you a fruity bath! Finally the other new bubble bar that I am excited about is Bar Humbug. I’m not the BIGGEST fan of liquorice scents, but I’m pretty sure with Christmas around the corner this will be perfect. I’ll definitely give it a smell before I buy it mind, just incase I don’t like it.

I love reusable bubble bars, and I’m super excited to pick up Magic Wand! I’m sure this has been out previous years but sadly I’ve never bought it before, something I’m going to make sure I do this year! It’s said to share its scent with Snow Fairy, so I can’t pass this product up!

FUN:

I can’t say I am the biggest fan of FUN. I’ve used it before and enjoyed it, don’t get me wrong and really liked it, but I would prefer to pick up other products over FUN. The main thing I love using it for is to shave with. I recently used some of my boyfriends Pink FUN and I loved it. So maybe I’ll see if I like the look of one of these. I can’t really imagine how any of these will smell to be honest, but I’ll be giving them all a sniff, and see what I think. I love how creative you can get with them all though! It makes for something cool to pop into a friends stocking, something I might do with my friends and family.

Shower Gels & Jellies:

If there is one thing that I get excited for every year it’s Snow Fairy Shower Gel. Ever since I can remember I’ve bought at least a tiny bottle of the good stuff to keep me going. I still have my bottle from last Christmas, something I’m probably going to keep for when I go on holiday as a treat to wash with in the evenings before nights out.

I’ll be picking up loads of huge bottles of Snow Fairy to keep me going throughout the year! I’ll also be keeping my eye on it in the Boxing Day sales, I missed out last year, which was a shame. Alongside that I may pick up one of the jellies, I’m unsure at this moment in time as I’ve never been that bothered about Snowman, but Santa’s Belly does sound rather nice for winter! I’ll give them a sniff and see how I feel!

Soap:

I’m never a huge fan of the soap from Lush, as the majority of it leaves me with bad allergic reactions, however there are a couple of the Christmas soaps that I can get away, and I can’t resist either to be honest! There are 5 soaps, only one being a new face this year. Last year I picked up Reindeer Rock and Yog Nog, two soaps I LOVED so much and ones I’ll be picking up again this year. Reindeer Rock smells of The Comforter Bubble Bar, which is really comforting. Yog Nog reminds me of cheesecake, which again is comforting. Old Father Time is the new soap this year, which really isn’t something I’ll be buying, sad to say.

Shower Products:

Bar the roulade, I love everything on this page! Christingle Body Conditioner sounds like a gorgeous and menthol mint conditioner, which will be good for cooling down in the summer, and maybe even in the winter. I love mint scents, and Intergalactic Bath Bomb (review here) will work perfectly with this one before I go out for Christmas parties, or maybe even after a day of Christmas shopping. Either way I really can’t wait to pick this up and I can see me stocking up so I have enough to last me through the year. The Salt And Peppermint Bark Shower Scrub looks and sounds amazing, not to mention delicious. This would be great to use alongside Christingle and Intergalactic to give me a proper minty scent and feel! Icing On The Cake does sound delicious, but I’m not a huge fan of the roulade, so I’ll more than likely give this a miss.

Body:

I’ve never used Dusting Powders before but I’ve always wanted to. Last year I was going to pick up First Snow, but I left it as I didn’t think I would use it in the end. Now that Lush will be bringing out Fairy Dust I’ll be making sure I pick some of this stuff up! I would wear it before nights out, and for days out with my boyfriend. I’d be tempted to buy it and take it on holiday with me to wear in the evenings, something I still might do. I’m so excited to give Fairy Dust a smell though! I can see it flying off the shelves alongside Snow Fairy.

Face & Lips:

I’m not all that fussed about the face and lip products this year, but that’s mostly due to the fact I already own both the lip products from last year and the year before. Although I would love the Santa Baby Lip Tint in the new tube form! I may just pick this up to replace my old tin version. I might try and grab a sample of the Cranberry Festive Fresh Face Mask as I don’t feel it will do much for my skin but it would be lovely to try.

Sadly those are all the Lush Christmas products for Lush 2015! As I have said previously, I can only imagine what America get is exactly the same as what we get too. I hope so anyway as there are some gorgeous products that I can’t wait to get my hands on.

So, now you know what products are out for Christmas, what are you most looking forward to buying? I’ve already stated mine, I want to hear yours. Make sure to let me know your thoughts on the 2015 range in the comments section.

Until next time, take care all and keep those eyes peeled for Lush news!

Lush Halloween & Christmas 2015 LEAKED! Part One – Halloween

I’m super excited to write this post at the moment! I had recently discovered the leaked Halloween products, but in the past ten or fifteen minutes I’ve heard about Christmas leaks, and boy are they good! I haven’t been this excited for Lush Christmas products since 2009! I know it’s probably naughty sharing leaked products with you all, but honestly I am just too on the edge of my seat to wait for an official announcement.

As these leaks are from America, I’m not even 100% sure if we’ll get these over here in the UK, but I’m pretty sure we will, and maybe more considering Lush is from the UK originally. But I just couldn’t help but share, I know a few blogs from over the pond are at the moment, so I don’t see the harm in doing the same. I’ll be talking about which items I’m excited about and why.

I want to say thank you to Golden Glamor for all the pictures and information on these leaks, she’s been very thorough about everything, which is amazing and due to that I have copied and pasted some of her information here, as she just explains it all better than I do! You can read her Halloween post here, and her Christmas post here.

So here it is, Lush Halloween and Christmas 2015, let’s start with Halloween first for part one of this two part post.

I apologise that the picture for this isn’t that great, but it’s the only one that is lurking around the internet at the moment. Lush Halloween this year is mostly Lord Of Misrule themed, which I should have seen coming to be fair! As usual, the bath bomb will be making an appearance, which I think is staying around until after Christmas. There will also be the Oxford Street exclusive shower cream and Aliens and Monsters FUN coming to stores, which is pretty exciting! I’ve never been a HUGE fan of Lord Of Misrule I’m more into my sweet scents, but I want to give it a chance this year. I really do like the smell of the shower gel. Alongside those three there will also be Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar which I’m sure came out last year and has a boozy citrus scent to it. The one product I am most excited about though is the bat shaped shower jelly Nightwing! No one knows quiet yet what it’ll smell of… Hopefully not Lord Of Misrule! 😛 There are rumours it will replace Sweetie Pie for Halloween and smell of blackcurrant. It would be pretty awesome if that were the case, AND if it is I’ll be picking up multiple pots to last me for as long as possible!

So the list includes (thanks to GG for this list):

Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb
Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar
Lord Of Misrule Shower Cream
Nightwing Shower Jelly
Aliens and Monsters FUN

Of course there will be gift sets too (thanks to GG for this list):

Pumpkin Heebie Jeebie – includes Sparkly Pumpkin and Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb
Bat Heebie Jeebie – includes Nightwing and Lord Of Misrule shower cream
Firecracker – includes Cinders, Experimenter, and Lord Of Misrule Bath Bombs
Full Moon KnotWrap – a super adorable, spooky knot wrap with a purple moon and bat outlines.

I’m pretty damn excited for Halloween! I don’t know when it’ll be out in the UK, but I imagine towards the end of this month. I know where my earnings will be going. 😉

So now we’ve spoken about Halloween, we can talk about Christmas… BUT due to how big that post is going to be, that will be up on my blog tomorrow. I feel mean making you guys wait, but oh well, it’ll be worth it! It’s going to be a very Lush themed week on my blog this week, but is that really a bad thing?

What do you think of the Halloween products that Lush are bringing our way this year? Are you a Lord Of Misrule fan and mega excited about all the goodies? Or do you hate it, and wish Lush had brought out something different? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time though, take care.

2015 Movies I Can’t Wait To See!

This is a really spontaneous post but after having a nose on what is coming soon on my local cinemas website, I felt the urge to make this post… As well as a list for myself of what films are coming out that I want to see, and when.

I have five on this list, one that I have already watched online but am desperate to watch in the cinema. I’m not going to hang about when writing this post, I’m just going to dive straight in. I’ll post pictures of the posters for each film, as well as a trailer for it.

Inside Out – Release date for UK – 24th July 2015 Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

This is probably the highest film I wish to see on this list… But that being said, I’ve already seen it. Yes I did the naughty thing and watched this online as soon as I found a half decent copy. Although I have seen it mind, I want to watch it again, properly. It’s officially been out a couple of days in the UK and at the time of writing this I’ll either have been to see it the day it came out, or I’ll be off to see it next week at some point. I love Pixar, so this is a must have to watch in the cinema for me. As I write this post I’m currently watching it online and it’s just such an amazing film. I hope I could write a full review for it in the future, but she shall see! It’s just a typical Pixar film that makes you think, and will make you cry too.

Max – Release date for UK – 7th August 2015A precision-trained military dog, Max serves on the frontlines in Afghanistan alongside his handler, U.S. Marine Kyle Wincott. But when things go terribly wrong on manoeuvres, Kyle is mortally wounded and Max, traumatised by the loss of his best friend, is unable to remain in service. Shipped stateside, the only human he seems willing to connect with is Kyle’s teenage brother, Justin, so Max is adopted by Kyle’s family, essentially saving his life. But Justin has issues of his own, such as living up to his father’s expectations for him; he isn’t interested in taking responsibility for his brother’s troubled dog. However, Max may be Justin’s only chance to discover what really happened to his brother that day on the front, and with the help of a tough-talking young teen, Carmen, who has a way with dogs, Justin begins to appreciate his canine companion. Justin’s growing trust in Max helps the four-legged veteran revert back to his heroic self, and as the pair race against time to unravel the mystery, they find more excitement – and danger – than they bargained for. But they each might also find an unlikely new best friend…in each other.

This is one I have been looking at on and off the past few weeks. It’s not something I am super excited about, but it does look like a good cheesy movie to have a cry at. I thought my boyfriend would love the look of this due to the dog being a breed he wants, but alas he isn’t that fussed either. However if we want to go watch a film and can’t think of anything we wish to watch, I could imagine us going to see this. It just reminds me of Marley & Me, which ironically shares the same producer as Max does. I don’t know if this is based off of a book, but it just looks like a good tearjerker.

The Diary of a Teenager Girl – Release date for UK – 7th August 2015 A teenage girl begins a complex love affair with her mother’s boyfriend in this whimsical American indie drama. Minnie (Bel Powley) is a 15-year-old living with her mother in 1970’s San Francisco. With her sexuality blossoming, the teenage artist begins an affair with her mother’s boyfriend, Monroe (Alexander Skarsgard). Minnie’s mother, Charlotte (Kristen Wiig), meanwhile, is an ageing hippy, gleefully indulging in a hedonistic lifestyle with her wayward daughter. But despite all of Minnie’s misadventures, it’s the middle-aged Monroe she keeps coming back to… Adapted from an acclaimed graphic novel, this innovative indie drama bubbles with visual ingenuity and quirky characterisation. First time writer/director Marielle Heller’s movie about the hedonistic attitudes of the 1970s party scene has been wowing audiences in the States, with Indiewire calling the film “genuine, poignant and hilarious”.

Oh my, this definitely my sort of film! I love drama style films aimed towards young adults as these sorts of films are always ones I loved watching when I was younger and make me feel really nostalgic. This one is about a young girl who starts to think about sex and soon finds herself falling for her mother’s boyfriend, only to have sex with him (I think…) and she documents her experience with sex and how it makes her feel. It just looks like a great coming of age story and right up my street!

Absolutely Anything – Release date for UK 14th August 2015Absolutely Anything follows a disillusioned school teacher, Neil Clarke (Pegg) who suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wishes, a challende bestowed upon him by a group of power-crazed aliens (voiced by Cleese, Gillam, Jones, Palin and Idle), watching him from space. As he struggles to deal with these new found powers and the events that subsequently arise, he calls upon his loyal canine companion Dennis (voiced by Robin Williams) to help him along the way. Mishap after mishap finally leadds him to the ultimate conundrum that all men dread and at which many have failed…should he choose the girl…or the dog…?

I totally forgot about this film until I found it on the coming soon page! This is a film I have been excited for since just after Robin Williams died. Not only does it star him (I think it’s his last film role…) voicing a dog, but it also stars Simon Pegg, who is one of my favourite actors. It’s one I know me and my boyfriend will go and watch as since the first trailer came out we loved the idea behind it, and especially Robin Williams’s amazing voice acting for the dog. I cannot wait for this to come out!

Paper Towns – Release date for UK – 21st August 2015Adapted from the bestselling novel by author John Green (“The Fault in Our Stars”), PAPER TOWNS is a coming-of-age story centring on Quentin and his enigmatic neighbour Margo, who loved mysteries so much she became one. After taking him on an all-night adventure through their hometown, Margo suddenly disappears–leaving behind cryptic clues for Quentin to decipher. The search leads Quentin and his quick-witted friends on an exhilarating adventure that is equal parts hilarious and moving. Ultimately, to track down Margo, Quentin must find a deeper understanding of true friendship–and true love

This is a film I have been excited for since it was announced. I love John Green and after how well The Fault in Our Stars did in the cinema, I can only imagine this one will be as just a good a success! I haven’t read the book yet, but I hope to get it read in time to go and watch the film. If not then I won’t be so bothered to be honest and I can just read it when I’ve watched the movie. I won’t lie though, I’m not as hyped up for this movie as much as I was for The Fault in Our Stars… I don’t know if that’s because EVERYONE hyped up that movie. But to be honest, I’m super excited about Looking for Alaska being turned into a movie as that’s probably my favourite John Green book. I would like to go and watch this film with someone I know has read the book besides myself, but I can’t see this happening, sad to say.

Snoopy And Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie – Release date for UK – 25th December 2015Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state-of-the-art 3D animation. Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle ­ and flying ace ­embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.

I remember my boyfriend sending me a 30 second trailer for this film months and months ago, probably around Christmas last year and I was so excited! Every time we have been to our local cinema and seen adverts and posters for it, we’ve realised it’s out soon and get even more excited about seeing it. However only prior to writing this post did I actually look up a trailer or two for it. At first I was a tad meh about the trailer and film in general, not feeling it too much, but when I watched the trailer that I’ve here and I’ve safely fallen in love. Peanuts was a huge part of my childhood and Snoopy is a big love of mine, so this movie is definitely something I need to watch when it comes out. I’m unsure about the release date, considering that’s Christmas Day… But I can work with that if that is the case!

So those are the movies I am excited about for the rest of 2015! There will probably be some more that pop up but I’m just going by what I found on my local cinema website as I stated earlier on in this post. These are just the main ones I’m looking forward to this year.

So, what movies are you wanting to watch in 2015? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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