September Wish List ’17

It’s September! My favourite month of the year and the month of our holiday! YAY! Due to that this months wish list isn’t anything special really and if anything is me adding some items I want to get as staples for my autumn and winter wardrobe.

This months wish list was really hard to be fair as I just can’t think of much I want right now. There’s just been a few big things I’ve wanted, but I’ll go into more detail about that as and when.

But no more chit chat, wish list time! 😀

  • Naketano Put The D On Me II Hoodie – £60.38 (link)

I actually stumbled across this hoodie when shopping with Dane recently. Sadly it was TK Maxx and at the best of times it’s like a jumble sale so whilst I found one I couldn’t find anymore. Sadly the one they had left was too small for me. I looked on their website and sadly they didn’t have the hoodie in stock on their either. ARGH! I did get a note of the brand and looked online at their official website and discovered that Naketano are a German brand. The best bit being that they had the hoodie I wanted in stock on their own website as well as on Blue Tomato, which is where I found it. It’s a gorgeous navy hoodie with red stars all over. It has a cowl neck which means it’ll be lovely to snuggle into when the weather begins to get chillier. It’s not cheap though as you can see from the price, yet TK Maxx was selling it for £29.99! I’ll be scouring local TK Maxx’s for this before I go on holiday.

  • Primark Pusheen Sweatshirt.

Primark are really upping their game with character clothing and merchandise and I would like to say I can’t get enough of it, but I haven’t bought any for ages! When I was out shopping with Dane I nearly bought a Marie sweatshirt but left it. I just want a cute and baggy sweatshirt to snuggle up in in my house whilst I do blog and house work. I didn’t see this when I popped in though and I had forgotten all about its existence until I looked on my eBay earlier. I wish I had looked for it now as I would have picked it up! I don’t know how much it’s meant to be from Primark itself, but on eBay it’s going for between £18.00-£25.00! Shit. I won’t buy this unless it’s from Primark itself.

  • Living Dead Clothing Aggretsuko Rainmaker – £39.78 (link)

This brand is very similar to Black Milk Clothing and a lot of people argue about whether one or the other is better. I can’t really comment as I’ve not yet bought any pieces from Living Dead. I want to though and I have my eye on a few pieces (I’ll have to do a wish list in the future!). The one thing that I really like about Living Dead is the amount of geeky anime and gaming related pieces they bring out. They’ve had Studio Ghibli and Pokemon related pieces out in the past and I wish I had picked some up. But they currently have some Sanrio pieces up for grabs in the final chance area of the website which is the newer member of the Sanrio family, Aggretsuko! She’s a red panda who works a shitty office job and spends her time after work singing metal on karaoke to take out the frustrations of said job. They have a crop top with her on as well as the rainmaker which is what I want more out of the two. These like Black Milk aren’t cheap though and due to them coming from Australia, shipping isn’t either. I would rock this with black leggings and jeans in the summertime and a long sleeved t-shirt underneath in the winter. Due to it being discontinued I’m torn over whether to buy or not… I probably won’t though. 😦

  • Marks & Spencer Striped Round Neck Jumper – £16.00 (link)

This is a jumper I keep seeing lately and it’s gorgeous for an M&S piece… 😛 A lot of their clothing is designed for the older lady but this one is pretty nice and can be worn with all sorts. I’m really after a jumper that I can wear with my new skater skirt (which you can see here). I’m after wearing stuff like this throughout autumn and winter this year, so I’ll be on the hunt for lots of lovely jumpers to team up with the skirt.

  • Disney Store Lady and the Tramp Tsum Tsum Bundle – £21.00 (link)

I saw these a couple of days in the Disney Store and I wanted to buy all of them! As old readers will know I LOVE Lady and the Tramp, it’s my favourite Disney movie so whenever I see merch come out for the film at the Disney Store, I have to buy. I already have the old Lady Tsum Tsum, but now I want the new one, as well as all her friends and enemies! I won’t get these until after the holiday though.

  • Dr Martens 8761 BXB Boot – £135.00 (link)

I don’t need a new pair of Docs… I really don’t. I saw these advertised recently on their official Instagram page and fell in love! I have a thing for Dr Martens boots with a steel toe, my Triumph boots have this same sort of look and it looks so chunky and amazing! I love the classic 1461 boots, but the chunky toe just gives them that edgy look. As much as I love my Triumph boots they aren’t the easiest to put on when in a hurry and I’d like some ankle boots that I can just shove on and go out the door in! These are going to be something I’ll treat myself to before my student discount card runs out. 😛 I’ll rock them throughout autumn and winter this year FOR SURE!

So that’s my wish list this month. It’s not the best wish list in the world but there’s a couple of pieces on here that I really want to get for my colder weather essentials. I don’t know if I’ll be buying anything whilst on holiday beauty and fashion wise. I’m sure I’ll have a massive list of goodies up I’ve bought when I’m back. Unless I buy the Docs before I go, I won’t be buying anything on this list anytime soon. Money that I get paid this month will be for holiday and bills. 😛

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

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’ve had an awesome week and weekend!

February ’16 Wish List

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

february20201620wish20list_zpsqrmi0fpw

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Currently #1

Hello and welcome to my first currently! I love reading these so I thought, “what the hell, it won’t hurt to do my own!” so here it is. I hope you enjoy this, I already can’t wait to do another one!

Watching: Recently I’ve been binge watching Teachers again. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve watching this series, but it’s by far one of my favourites! During my undergraduate study, I watched this religiously whilst writing my dissertation. It was just like watching my friends or family on a home video, or sat in the pub with them. It’s just a very mellow show that you can really get into, and fall in love with the characters.

Playing: Since Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer coming out I haven’t stopped playing it! It’s just so addictive and relaxing to play that after a day at work I like to just come home, snuggle into bed with a hot drink and play this until I need to leave my bed to pee or eat. That sounds grosser than it actually is!

Listening: I’ve been listening to Bloodhound Gang LOADS lately and I don’t even know why! I’ve always loved this band but lately I’ve just fallen in love with them more than ever before. I need to get more of their albums soon. I’ve been on the hunt for some more for the past few weeks, but I’ve not really had much luck on that… Doh! I’ve also been playing No Devotions new and first album Permanence. It’s a very nice album for autumn and a relaxing one at that. It’s nice to listen to on the way to work in the morning.

Eating: I haven’t really eaten anything different lately… If anything I’ve been binging on crisps… Not good! Mostly Quavers, and Marmite Walkers crisps. I love Marmite so much… Actually, if I’ve been loving a food this month, it’s Marmite on toast. Can’t go wrong! I’ve also been drinking quite a bit of Lucozade Pink Lemonade at the moment, mostly due to my pole fitness. It helps me during my classes. As well as that I’ve been drinking lots of Ribena too. Yummy!

Wearing: With me officially finishing uni at the start of September my boyfriend finally gave me my Adventure Time Dr Martens boots (can read about those here) and they’re all I’ve been wearing. It has been tough to be honest as everyone who has ever owned a pair of Dr Martens will know how painful they are to break in and trust me mine are proving painful, especially on my one little toe. Ouch! With a big pair of Dr Martens socks, and plenty of plasters they’re now starting to break a little more. I can’t wait for them to be perfect so I can rock them all autumn and winter!

Wanting: I’m really lusting after some Snow Fairy from Lush at the moment. I’m running low on shower gel so it’s an excuse to buy this gorgeous smelling pink stuff. Alongside that I can’t wait for the 101 Dalmatians Vans to be released so I can pick up a pair in time for my holiday. I’ll rock them alongside my Dr Martens! I also want Christmas to hurry up and arrive, as well as pay day so I can start my Christmas shopping. I’ve eyed up loads of gift ideas for my boyfriend now, and I just need the money for them!

What things are you currently into? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time take care all and I’ll see you soon.

Autumn is Looming…

Image taken from weheartit.com

It’s September, my favourite month of the year, and yet I don’t know why! I think it’s due to years of going back to school, college, and uni, and being able to see a new year as a fresh start to look cool, be confident, do well in my studies, and just sort my life out. Even though I’m no longer in education, I still see September as this fresh start. September means more to me than just that however, it’s also the start of autumn and the best fashion of the year comes about again. Hot drinks out in coffee shops are now no longer an excuse, but a necessity, and soon enough Christmas will catch up to us.

Image taken from weheartit.com

Every blogger and their dog are obsessing and talking about autumn at the moment, and whilst autumn isn’t officially here until the end of the month, it doesn’t hurt to start preparing, and with how the year has been so far it’ll soon fly by!

Image taken from weheartit.com

  • Hot Ribena.

This is something I recently discovered when I went away to the Lake District with my boyfriend and our friends. I drank loads of it before we went home and it was such a perfect comfort drink. Since then I have bought a huge bottle of Ribena light and in the mornings before I head to work I make sure to have a cup to warm me up. Mornings really are getting chilly now, something I had kind of forgotten about.

  • Baggy hoodies.

Preferably a significant others! Since I met him, I’ve had my boyfriends Funeral For A Friend hoodie, it’s one of the nicest hoodies I’ve ever stolen from someone (infact it’s probably the only one!) as it’s so baggy, soft, and comfortable to wear whether you’re going out for the day, popping out to do some errands, or something to wear around the house. As well as that I have my favourite hoodie that I wear, my fox Animal hoodie that I got when I went on holiday in January. I intend to take this hoodie with me again to live in whilst I’m there when it isn’t warm.

  • Relaxing evenings.

With nights getting shorter, evenings in are some of the best, especially before November and December when all the Christmas parties are around. It’s just nice to stay inside, wrap up warm with a hot drink, and watch movies or play games. My relaxed evenings of choice for this autumn are looking to be playing Minecraft with my boyfriend and our friends, reading, watching South Park, and continuing with my novel.

  • Shopping for autumn essentials.

I really need some retail therapy soon, when I’m unsure but after I handed in my dissertation last Wednesday, I had a look around the shops at all the lovely autumn pieces and fashion that is coming out for this year. I gravitated towards a lot of pieces in Primark, and was tempted to buy some bits and pieces, but I left it due to money. I can see me wrapping up in snuggly jumpers, ripped black skinny fit jeans, and of course my new Dr Martens boots.

  • Ankle boots.

If there is a shoe that was designed for a season, it’s the ankle boot for autumn. Whether it has a heel, a platform, or whatever other quirky design they’re perfect for when the weather is getting colder. My boot of choice this autumn will be my Dr Martens, my new ones to be precise. Back in March my boyfriend was kind enough to buy me the limited edition Adventure Time Jake Dr Martens (post about them here!), but with a catch that I wouldn’t be allowed them until I’d finished my masters… Well now I’ve finished I’ll soon be able to wear these bad boys! Probably this weekend to be exact. I’ll probably wear these loads, especially when the weather is icy outside in winter time. With all the burgundy and mustard shades flying around for autumn, these are sure to fit in.

  • Comfort food.

I love food, I’ll admit that. I literally see food and eat it. BUT since starting my diet before July I’ve learnt when to say no to certain foods again… Although recently I have been a tad on the naughty side. But with the weather getting colder again, I can’t help but eat that little more and I especially sway towards carbs… A lot of carbs! My favourite autumn food is definitely macaroni cheese. It’s just so warming and gorgeous on a cold evening in front of the TV or a games console. Pizza is also a good one, but I don’t mean takeaway, I mean a massive one you can cook yourself and share. It saves money too, as well as unnecessary calories. Not only is dinner the time for comfort food, but breakfast can be too. My favourite being pancakes with bacon, something I made for me and my boyfriend over the weekend. He had honey with his as we never had any maple syrup and I had mine dry… Because I like my pancakes savory. Another pancake breakfast I want to make this year is blueberry pancakes, with blueberry syrup. I’m not done talking about food yet! Something else I love to eat during autumn is soup, and lots of it! I make my Chinese chicken and sweetcorn soup most weeks in autumn and winter, but I still want to try and make something else. Sweet potato and chicken soup is one I want to try and make soon… I might give it a go this week, see how I get on!

I can probably think of loads more things to talk about in the run up to autumn, but alas I want to save more for when autumn is actually here!

So, how many of my readers are excited for autumn and this month? Maybe you hate the colder weather and months? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

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

Spring Tag!

Image taken from weheartit.com

I love spring, it means the weather is beginning to get warmer and lighter nights are just around the corner. Since getting back from my holiday I’ve been lusting after warmer weather and not needing to layer up and wear my parka. I just want to wear my pleather jacket again, as well as my dresses and playsuits.

It’s officially spring today! So what better way to start off spring 2015 on my blog, than a spring tag!

1. Favorite spring nail polish?
I like my cream and pastel shades for spring, and I’ll definitely be wearing my Models Own Speckled polishes (post about them here). They remind me of Mini Eggs, which I love. As well as that I’ll probably be wearing my Illamasqua Raindrops (review here) polish as I love that shade for spring too.

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring?
I’m swaying towards pinks this spring, mostly nude pinks as I’ve recently got into wearing this shade and I really like it. As well as that I always like to rock a hot pink shade too. You can’t go wrong with pink! One I’ll probably wear a lot is Miley Cyrus’ Viva Glam lipstick (review here).

3. Show us your favorite spring dress!
I have so many favourites! I love my Dr. Martens dress (lookbook here), as well as my Miss Selfridge playsuit which I wore on holiday and will continue to wear in the spring and summer in the UK. Here are some pictures of both dresses…

4. What’s your favorite flower?
I don’t reallllly like flowers to be honest and I put this down to having hayfever… But if I had to choose one it would probably be sunflowers and lilies.

5. Favorite spring scarf/accessory?
Favourite spring scarf is definitely my white skull one that I bought three years ago (wow time flies!). It’s light and perfect to wear with dresses in the spring and summer.

6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)
I am really liking the look of the 70’s trend, as I find the style that was out then was pretty nice and looked lovely. When it comes to make up and hair, I don’t really bother with those trends as I just wear my hair how I want to, and same with my lipstick too. Clothes wise, I am in desperate need of a make over! So I may go down the 70’s route!

Image taken from weheartit.com

7. Favorite spring candle?
I’ll burn anything throughout the year, but I think out of all my Yankee Candles the candles I’ll be burning most throughout spring will be Sweet Strawberry and Sweet Apple (post about them both here). They’re perfect for spring and smell delicious too. They’re simple too which is great for spring.

8. Favorite body spray/perfume for spring?
Ooo this is a tough one as I have so many I like to wear throughout the year. I think a few that I really like are Paul Smith Rose, DKNY MYNY, Marc Jacobs Oh Lola, Gucci Envy Me, and Lancome Miracle. They’re all light and floral and citrus scents which work lovely for spring.

9. What is spring like where you live?
Erm… It depends I suppose but usually wet! It rains a lot in the UK as it is, but it seems to rain more during spring than any other month. The thing I like about spring in the UK is how great it is to go into the countryside and awe over all the baby animals, as well as take in the sights. I especially love seeing cherry blossom trees.

Image taken from weheartit.com

10. What’s your favorite thing about spring?
Baby animals and cherry blossom trees for sure! They just both make me happy, especially when it comes to photography too. I also like how lighter nights come around and you can go out in the evenings with friends, family, partner, etc and just enjoy yourselves for longer. It’s also nice how it gets a little warmer out too.

11. Are you a spring cleaner?
Sometimes, not like hardcore but I would like to do a lot of spring cleaning this year. I’ve done a little already with my clothes, but I need to do some more. There’s probably loads of junk I could chuck away out of my room!

12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?
We don’t have spring break in the UK, but we do get Easter break. I’m not at uni during this time for two weeks and throughout that time I’ll be working, as well as doing my uni work. I may also use it to do my spring cleaning and have a bit of me and blog time. I won’t have any holiday’s coming up, but I would love to go out for a day somewhere nice for my boyfriends birthday, which is just after the Easter holiday’s.

So that was the Spring Tag! I really enjoyed doing it, and I hope my readers have enjoyed reading it.

Who do I tag? EVERYONE! If you take part in this tag, please link me back to said post via a comment so I can come and read it.

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

These Boots are Righteous, not Wrongteous!

So as I was explaining last weekend (post here), I was going to be getting my hands on the Jake Dr. Martens x Adventure Time boots and of course, I got them.

First of all i want to say how image heavy this post is going to be! I wanted to make sure to get as many pictures taken as possible to show the boots off the best I could.

I want to just explain here again how these are infact an early present from my boyfriend for completing/passing my masters at university. However, as this isn’t due until September, I have six months to wait until I can officially have these! So whilst they were at my house, before heading to his and being locked away, I thought I would write a quick post about them and show them off.

These came out on Monday 2nd and not even a week into their release and all three styles of the boots were sold out online, as well as in most stores. I was gob smacked! I was beginning to panic I wouldn’t get my own pair, however after calling the Birmingham Dr. Martens store and reserving a pair to try on and buy, I was relieved.

I just want to say, the guy who I spoke to on the phone was extremely helpful and was sad I wasn’t able to thank him on Saturday when I picked them up. So, thanks Phil you were extremely helpful and made a Dr. Martens and Adventure Time fan very happy.

I just want to talk a little about the boots before I show them off.

They were unisex boots, but that isn’t an issue, I find anyway. They’re not patent, but normal leather and because of it are incredibly soft. This will make them easier to “break in”, which is something I have found issues with my patent leather Dr. Martens, even though I bought them second-hand!

The guy who served us (my boyfriend was with me) was telling us how the collection has been in such high demand that stores have been calling each other asking for stock as they’d sold out of certain sizes, if not all in some stores. In fact, my boots were so in demand that I had a “queue” of four people after me waiting to try them on, that was if I didn’t buy them of course.

I’m really surprised that the collection has sold out so quickly. I knew it was going to sell out, don’t get me wrong but I didn’t imagine that in the first week of being on the selves it would be pretty much gone. This is great for Dr. Martens and if they don’t decide to bring out some more styles, then they’re being daft!

Another thing I want to mention is my concern that when I got to the store to try these on, I wouldn’t like them. Don’t get me wrong, they look amazing, but just because something looks good on the picture, doesn’t mean they’ll look good on you. I’ve always had this in mind when it comes to clothes and shoes, that’s just me. My boyfriend also shared this concern but we were both pleasantly surprised when I tried them on and they looked perfect. The yellow shade of the Jake boots seems like it might be in your face, but it isn’t at all. It’s quite a nice creamy yellow, which works perfectly.

Something I think is amazing about Dr. Martens is that they do student discount, as you wouldn’t imagine such a “high up” fashion store would. Because of this my boyfriend saved £13.00 on these boots, causing them to cost £117.00 instead of £130.00.

Any flaws I need to get off my chest before I talk about all the good things? Yes, actually. I have quite a few flaws.

One I want to get off of my chest is that whilst I think it looks awesome and gives the boot a bit more of personality, the strap across the top bugs me a tad. When I wear my Docs usually, I like them to have an eyelet or two open at the top so that they can slouch a little and have a more “comfortable” look to them, but sadly you can’t do that with these. But this being said, they do look quirky and different, so it isn’t necessarily a flaw… Just me being a fussy cow!

Another problem I had, was the price. Yes, I know I didn’t pay for these, BUT I wanted to buy my boyfriend a pair for his birthday next month and alas, I can’t. They’re far too expensive (unless I take out a loan, ha!) and I don’t think he would want me to spend so much on boots, even though he has on me. It isn’t just the adults boots that are expensive either, at £80 a pair, the children’s boots are shockingly expensive! But, that’s Dr. Martens for you. You do get amazingly quality for the money and I’ve paid lots for my triumphs in the past and they’re still holding up and are some of the most comfortable shoes I own.

So, onto what these babies look like!

As you can see they’re a gorgeous cream yellow and have some detailing on them, mostly in black.

You also have a pair of straps on each boot, which are meant to be Jake’s hands/fists, a very unique touch! On the outside of each boot you have a drawing of Jake’s arm so when the strap is across the boot, it looks like his hand is attached to the arm. Pretty cool huh?

On the front of each boot you have a different picture of Jake, on the left boot you have him sticking out his tongue, and on the right boot you have him smiling. Very simple, yet incredibly cute. As well as that, on each boot beside these faces, there are cute little ears.

These also come with two different coloured laces, one black (as you can see) and a pack of yellow. I’ll probably stick with wearing the black ones, as I find they’ll work better. As Dr. Martens sell so many different coloured laces, I could always try a different colour in the future if I do so wish

To wear these are pretty damn comfortable and in comparison to my patent leather docs, they’re a shit load better! They feel like they will dig in a little at the back when I first wear them out and about, but that is to be expected. With some thick long socks and plenty of plasters, I’ll be okay!

It looks like Dr. Martens really went all out to make sure this collection was perfect and I think they did an amazing job! To have seen these back in May/June whilst they were in the factory and to finally see them now in my own room, waiting to be worn, I’m actually glad they turned out perfectly.

To be honest these boots just remind me of when I tried for an apprenticeship at Dr. Martens and how gutted I was not to have gotten myself a place. I could try again, but would there be any point? No, because I know that isn’t the way I need to go.

I think my Jake boots will always remind me to be a kid at heart and have fun, no matter how serious things may seem to be.

What do I stand for?

I stand for being unique and not letting anyone tell you you aren’t stylish, pretty, skinny, or fat enough to be fashionable. Fashion is what you make of it, not the other way around.

I also stand for doing what makes you happy, with the people who make you happy.

So, those are my Jake Dr. Martens and I won’t be allowed them until September. They’re now back in their box, and will be kept safe and ready for when I finish my MA.

I can’t wait to have these ready for autumn and winter this year, they’ll go perfectly with all sorts when the chilly weather is back.

Do you like the Dr. Martens x Adventure Time collection? If so, which pair do you like best? If you don’t like it however, why not? Hell, have you even bought anything from the collection yet? If so let me know which boots you’ve bought!

Until next time, take care all.

Dr. Martens x Adventure Time

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock the past couple of weeks, then you probably know about Dr. Martens teaming up with Cartoon Network to bring us a very exciting collection for Adventure Time!

I knew about this collection coming out nearly a year ago. How? I tried for an apprenticeship at Dr. Martens in Nottingham, which I sadly didn’t get. On the day where I had my practical assessments and interview I saw the Adventure Time boots in there and of course I had to ask about them. They told me they would be coming out soon and when a few months later I asked in the Birmingham store about them, that’s when I found out they would be out for S/S 15.

The designs that they had when I eyed them up were the three pairs that have come out, which are Jake, Finn and a pair with loads of prints of Jake and Finn. However there was also two other pairs that haven’t come out with this collection, which were Marceline and Gunter. I can imagine these will be out A/W 15 or S/S 16.

If you haven’t seen these beauties yet, then I’m going to show you!

The promotional video for this is amazing and I like how they’ve incorporated their #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign with Finn and Jake.

Not only are these out for adults, but they’re out for kids too which aren’t cheap at £80 a pair! This being said the children’s pairs are super cute and I wish I could buy a pair to later on in life dress my own kid in.

These are unisex boots so come in sizes 3-13 in UK sizes, and this includes half sizes for 6 and 9 too.

So you can imagine my excitement when Dr. Martens officially came out with their news about the boots coming out. This being said, I’m on a spending ban and £130 is now a lot to me as I don’t earn much since cutting my hours down for uni.

I knew from seeing them at Dr. Martens in Nottingham all those months ago that I wanted either the Jake or Marceline pair. So I’ve always had my eye on them.

This collection officially went on sale on Monday and already the Jake pair have sold out, which hardly surprises me. The only pairs left are the Finn and Finn & Jake boot. I’m sure these will be available this time next week.

You can imagine how gutted I was when I saw the Jake boot has sold out, as these are said to have been made in limited numbers, so people who are still after these boots might not even get a pair now…

So I was double gutted, one because I couldn’t afford the boots in the first place and now the pair I want is sold out. Knowing how upset I was my boyfriend kindly offered to buy me the Jake pair as a “congratulations on finishing uni” present, which I course I won’t be allowed to have until September… Which I can deal with! At least I would have a pair!

So at this moment in time, we should now have them! I rang the Dr. Martens store in Birmingham and asked if they had any pairs in my size left and luckily they have ONE LEFT! They kindly reserved them for me for when I pop in today and I couldn’t help but be super excited for today so that I can finally get my hands on this pair.

Seeing as I’m not allowed them until September, I don’t know if I’ll be writing a post about these before then… I’m hoping I’ll be allowed to but my boyfriend has been really strict on when I can have these, and I can understand why. They’re an early present, but not early enough I can have them now! Damn!

Either way I haven’t been so excited for a collection in a long time and Dr. Martens pulled a good move bringing this collection out.

One thing I would say about this collection is that IF you want a pair, get down to your local store soon or order online (if you can of course) as soon as possible as these are going fast.

I do have a feeling they’ll bring out another soon, as I said before. In said collection I would love to see some Lumpy Space Princess boots! It would be cool to see some Fiona boots too, but I can’t see this happening.

What do you think of the Adventure Time collection? Do you love it, do you hate it? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all!
