November Wish List ’18

Why am I bothering to write a wish list so close to Christmas? Meh because I can, I guess! 😛

I apologise if this list is full of waffle, I really do but meh I’m kind of struggling to come up with things I want to get with Christmas being around the corner. It’s also crazy to think the next wish list I write will be for December, I mean where has the year gone?!

I’ll try my best however with my wish list, some items might be pre orders I’ve made, where others might just be items I’m going to have to lust after until after Christmas. I have to be careful not to buy anything that Dane may have already bought me… 😛

  • WoodWick Sea Salt Caramel Candle – (link)

I LOVE WoodWick candles and although I rather like Yankee Candles, WoodWick are definitely my favourite. I love that they crackle as they burn and they’re also made out of soy wax so they’re actually better for you, breathing in wise. I’ve owned quite a few mini jars of the seat salt caramel scent and it is by far one of my favourites. I’d love to own the massive jar, but like Yankee Candle’s these aren’t the cheapest. So worth the money though! This may end up on a Christmas list or I might even buy it myself in the New Year.

  • Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee! & Poke Ball Plus – (link)

Oh man I am SO EXCITED for this game to come out this month! I’ve had it on preorder since it was announced back in May and I cannot believe in less than 2 weeks it will be out! Out of the two I preordered I decided I wanted Eevee, as having a little Eevee around with me sounds so adorable! I also ordered the bundle with the Poke Ball Plus with it too! I gave this game a go with the Poke Ball Plus at EGX in September and it was so good and it just made me so glad that I ordered it with the game. I’m especially excited to play this game with Dane, as it’s two player.

  • Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream – (link)

I’ve been after a cuticle cream for the longest time and I’ve always heard nothing but good things about the Burt’s Bees one. I even tried it years ago when in store and it seemed like something good to pick up. I think I wanted it more for when I used to use gel nail polish all the time, which in turn I would like to get back into using again. This is something I’d love to pick up on a whim soon.

  • Persona 5 Morgana Sega Prize “Nesoberi” Lying Down Plush – (link)

This is something I actually have preordered from YY Kawaii and I honestly cannot wait to get it! I’ve been after a Morgana plush for the longest time, but the one I really want is either hard to find or costs a fucking bomb! This one is quite a nice size and will either sit on our bed or on my cuddle chair downstairs. Either way I am so excited to get this now. 😛 I’ll definitely show it off on social media when I have him.

  • Himouto! Umaru-chan Vol. 3 – (link)

I LOVE this manga series and although this volume came out in October, I didn’t actually realise this until late in October so I made sure to order a copy ready for November time. I don’t plan to buy anymore manga after this as I’m unsure if Dane will buy me any for Christmas or my birthday. I do have some that I plan to add to my wish list in December mind, so keep eyes peeled for that next month if you’re interested.

  • Spyro Reignited Trilogy on PlayStation 4 – (link)

This is another game I’m really excited for this month! I was gutted back in September when it got pushed back but meh whatever, it’s going to be out in a couple of weeks now and it’s going to have been worth the wait for sure. I’m excited to play through all of the games and reminisce about all the hours, days and summer holidays spent playing these games. I plan to play the second Spyro game first as this was the first one I played back in the day.

  • Hell Bunny Full Moon Mini Dress – (link)

I’ve never owned a Hell Bunny dress myself, but I have always been intrigued by them. I saw a picture of this style floating around on Instagram and thought it looked really nice! I recently only managed to remember about it and ventured to the website to check it out. It’s not the cheapest dress in the world, not going to lie… But it’s definitely a dress I’m going to keep my eye on for the future as I would like to own something like this again, especially for both work and days off.

So those are what items I have on my wish list for this month! I know it’s nothing special and most of it I’ve got on preorder, but meh sadly a lot of stuff I don’t want to add to my list as I want those for next month.

Next month is December. That in itself is bloody scary!

What things do you guys have on your wish lists? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having an amazing weekend!

The Body Shop Coconut Bath Bubble – Review

From hardly any reviews on my blog, to LOADS! Aww I do love writing reviews and I always forgot how much I love writing them.

I’m back with yet another The Body Shop product to talk about and today it’s going to be another bath product. I recently spoke about the strawberry bath bomb on my blog and after using the bath bubble, I just knew I had to share how amazing it is with you all!

As I mentioned on my review of the bath bomb, I am still always trying to find brands that amazing bath products that won’t leave your bank account crying afterwards. The Body Shop is doing such a great job with creating amazing bath products and whenever I pick up new ones, I’ll definitely be sharing them with you all!

At the same time as I bought the strawberry bath bomb, I decided to pick up one of the bath bubbles too. I picked up the Coconut Bath Bubble as I found it sounded the most appealing to myself. Whilst the strawberry scent from The Body Shop will always be my favourite hands down, I also love the coconut scent too. I used to use it all the time as a teenager and it was my go to whenever I shopped in The Body Shop.

Like the bath bombs there are various different scents you can pick up for the bath bubbles including coconut, moringa and pink grapefruit. Like the bath bombs these don’t break the bank and only cost £1.50 each.

Like the bath bombs these are only 28g but for how small they are they really do pack a punch and leave you with a bath full of bubbles, scent and colour.

The bubble bar itself is in such a cute little heart shape, which I wasn’t expecting! I don’t know if the other two scents also share this shape, but if they do that would be so cute! It’s also this gorgeous baby blue colour, which really shows when you pop it into the bath. Of course it smells of coconut and I know this sounds odd but it just smells of The Body Shop coconut, a creamy scent that reminds me summers abroad and sun cream. I love it!

Like my Lush bubble bars I use a sieve/strainer to make sure I get the best bubbles possible! I sometimes crumble said bubble bar up into the sieve but I found the coconut bubble bar was quite strong and hard to break so I ended up just popping the whole thing into the sieve and running it under the hot tap.

The blue bath colour really does begin to show through pretty quickly, which took me by surprise! These aren’t big bubble bars but they really aren’t messing around when it comes to the colour payoff in the bath! You can see when you move the bar away from the water how it continues to foam up and bubble, which entertained me for a while.

Even halfway through me running this under the tap it was still really hard to break up and make crumbly, so I had to continue with this until I managed to break it up. It’s a really strong blue colour and I can understand why it gave off such an amazing blue to the water now, as well as loads of bubbles.

Oh my God, look at all the bubbles and all the blue water! I felt like a mermaid to be honest with you and I was loving it!

The water itself had a lovely delicate coconut scent, nothing too strong or too weak, which I really loved. The water was somewhat conditioning on the skin, but nothing like the Lush bath bombs and bubble bars. It did the job though and I felt so pampered after using it. It left a light scent of coconut on my skin too, which would be lovely to compliment afterwards by using either The Body Shop coconut body butter or body milk (which I used to use constantly as a teenager!), or the coconut body mist or eau de toilette.

Since trying the coconut bath bubble I’ve bought three more since as I just love using them so much. I am actually so happy that The Body Shop have brought out stuff like this as like I said on the strawberry bath bomb review, I really don’t want to keep buying and supporting Lush anymore, so if I can support better brands who also won’t rip me off, that would make me so happy!

What do you think of The Body Shop bath bubbles? Would you give them a go? Have you already? Let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope your weeks are going well so far.

ESQIDO Lashes Gel Eyeliner Pencils – Review

I am back today with another review about the brand ESQIDO Lashes!

In May I was asked by ESQIDO Lashes to review a pair of their lashes, I was honoured and as I haven’t worn lashes in years I thought it would be fun to do, as well as something different. I loved them so much and have since worn them a few times around the house for my own pleasure when feeling a bit bleh.

You can check out that review here!

ESQIDO Lashes recently reached out to me again to express how much they loved my review on their lashes and how they wanted me to write a review on their new gel eyeliner pencils! Although I don’t wear make up anymore, I wanted to give them a go. I used to wear eyeliners all the time, so still to this day I know a good eyeliner when I see one! 😛

Like I did on the lashes review, any items that have been gifted to me to review will have a * next to them.

Before I start to talk about the gel eyeliners I was sent, I’ll tell you a little bit about the company.

When I first viewed the company online my first thought was, “Oh wow! It’s an American store!” I know this sounds silly to think this, but alas, I did. However, the eyelashes arrived super quickly in the post and via Royal Mail. I think they must have a warehouse in the UK seeing as these arrived from Northampton! My reason for the whole American lark is due to their prices being in dollars. When looking into this further, it turns out that ESQIDO has shops and stockists all over the world, which I think is so amazing and it honestly makes me feel so privileged to be working with them.

The one thing I really love about the company is the fact that they offer a 60 day returns and exchanges policy. 60 whole days and considering they’re eyelashes, I’m even more surprised. I think it’s such a great policy for people to be able to get the most out of their new set of lashes and if they aren’t happy with them, then they can send them back. I also agree with this policy because these lashes aren’t the cheapest in the world and if you aren’t happy with them, then damn right you should be offered your money back! I can only assume that this offer applies to the gel eyeliners too.

Although ESQIDO Lashes are known for they mink lashes, they also stock gel eyeliner pencils too, which if you haven’t gathered by now, is what I’ll be reviewing today.

Experience the benefits of a gel eyeliner with the convenience of a sharpenable pencil. With intense color payoff, ultra-smooth glide, and a waterproof, long-lasting lightweight formula, the ESQIDO Liner is your new holy grail. Get the eyeliner in black or brown.

A creamy smooth glide & pigmented formula for perfect cat eyes or winged liner.

The ESQIDO Eyeliner is specially formulated for all day wear, and to deliver continuous flow with smooth even lines. Packed with product in a retracting mechanical body, combined with a silicon ring closure to provide an airtight seal, the eye liner is made to last.

It’s a fine line between great work, and your greatest work. The Liner includes a precision sharpener, so you’re always ready for your finest hour.

A little goes a long way. With a highly pigmented formula and a twist dispenser, you’ll be able to make the most of the Liner.

Key Benefits

All day wear, pigmented formula, continuous even flow that covers in one perfect coat, dries matte, retractable and sharpenable gel pen, pairs well with any makeup look.

Safe Formulation

5-free and latex-free. Formulated WITHOUT formaldehyde, parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. Fragrance free. Suitable for sensitive eyes.

Making the most of your ESQIDO Eyeliner:

Apply on inner lid to seamlessly blend in with your ESQIDO false lashes

Apply and smudge/blend before it sets for a smokey effect

Colors Available in Black or Brown

Volume 0.5g

Features Built-in sharpener, airtight ring seal, twist & retractable dispenser.

They even list the ingredients on the website, which I thought was amazing!

Ingredients (Black)

Cyclopentasiloxane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Synthetic Wax, C30-50 Alcohols, Plymethysilsesquoixane, Silica, Polybutene, Microcrystalline Wax, Acetylate Glycol Stearate, Triethoxycapryllsilane, Mica (CI77019), Iron Oxides (CI77499), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI77510)

Ingredients (Brown)

Cyclopentasiloxane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Synthetic Wax, C30-50 Alcohols, Plymethysilsesquoixane, Silica, Microcrystalline Wax, Acetylate Glycol Stearate, Triethoxycapryllsilane, Aluminum Hydroxide, Mica (CI77019), Titanium Dioxide Oxides (CI77891), Iron Oxides (CI77491, CI77492, CI77499)

I was sent both of the Gel Eyeliner Pencil in black* and the Gel Eyeliner Pencil in brown* to review for my lovely readers.

Both the gel eyeliner pencils are currently (date of writing this review 09/09/2018) on offer for $10.00 each, when they usually retail for $16.00 each. So if you like the look of these by the end of the review, you can go and grab yourself a bargain whilst the launch offer is in place!

The gel eyeliners themselves arrived so quickly and I couldn’t wait to give them a go. The first thing I did was check out the packaging. It isn’t as luxurious as the lashes packing, but if does the job.

Like the website the packaging contains the ingredients, the contents and weight of the product, which colour you have purchased, expiry date, how to use and the funniest part for me, it tells you not to freeze the product… I’ve never heard of anyone freezing an eyeliner before but I wouldn’t be surprised if someone has. 😛

The eyeliner itself is simple but looks and feels really nice. It has a matte feel to the packaging which gives it a good hold and feels comfortable and like you have a good grip on it. The base of the gel eyeliners have a ring with the colour of the shade you’ve picked, which is a simple and nice touch, leaving the rest of the eyeliner pencil looking clean. I love the white packaging the most, as I just said it looks clean.

When you take the lid off of the pencil there’s the silicon ring closure which is there to make sure that the pencil never dries out. I’ve never seen this with an eyeliner pencil before, nor a lip pencil to be honest with you. It’s such a genius idea, even for something so minute.

The one thing that interested me the most about reviewing these gel eyeliners is the packaging, not even the product! I love how they’ve made the packaging and if anything, it shouts unique to me straight away just purely due to how you can sharpen the pencil.

This is a twist up eyeliner so you twist at the bottom and it causes more eyeliner to appear. Everyone knows how these work, it’s pretty straight forward. However, with eyeliners like this that I’ve owned in the past, they’ve always been blunt or awkward to sharpen due to the gel texture. However, ESQIDO Lashes thought ahead and attached a sharpener to the bottom of the pencil! You wouldn’t even know it was there though, which is a good thing.

You just pull out the bit at the bottom and hey presto! You have yourself an eyeliner sharpener. This is easy enough to use, clean and click back into the bottom of the eyeliner pencil. However, one issue I found was if you forgot to pop this back in, or misplaced it, it would be frustrating! It is a tiny piece and some people may find this lose able. Other than that, I LOVE IT!

Finally onto the gel eyeliner themselves!

They’re a gel consistency and texture so they’re really creamy and smooth to apply and incredibly pigmented! With one swipe they apply perfectly first time and don’t need to be touched up at all. Due to the tip of the liner you can do lines at thick or as thin as you please. The creamy texture also makes them easy enough to create designs with, if you’re that way inclined.

They’re quite lightweight for such a long lasting and pigmented formula and really took me by surprise. You wouldn’t even know they were there! They’re also waterproof so will last ages. I tried these on the back of my hand and nothing was making them budge to be honest with you, not even the hardest of rubbing and smudging.

I found that if you plan to smudge these out and work with them to give yourself a smokey eye look, then you’ll have to work fast as these dry really quickly! They’re really nice to blend out though and work easily.

Personally whilst this might be great for most, I’ve never been a massive waterproof eyeliner and mascara fan. I like to think I can get stuff off easily as and when the time comes for removal. I don’t want to be scrubbing away to remove stuff, thankfully this isn’t the case with these eyeliners.

When I went to remove the eyeliner swatches off the back of my hand with a baby wipe it was pretty hard to do and it definitely required a bit of force. However, with a good make up remover it came off like a dream, my favourite one to use for any make up is the Garnier Micellar Water.

I’ve never in my life worn a brown eyeliner so that was the shade I was interested in the most, especially to compare it to the black one. I’d still not opt for brown however, I always used to rock black eyeliner growing up, so I’ll always sway to that shade. 😛

So, what did I think of the gel eyeliner pencils overall? They’re pretty amazing to be honest for the price, both at the launch off her $10.00 and the regular price of $16.00!

Would I buy these again for myself? Probably not, but that’s because I don’t wear eyeliner much these days. These on their own will last me aggges now. They’re certainly worth the price and I’d definitely pick these up for family members to pop in stockings and gifts as fillers. My best friend Gabriella loves make up and I could imagine these would be perfect to add to her collection, whether she’s doing make up on herself, or someone else.

Overall these are amazing and I highly recommend them to people who want to try a new gel eyeliner pencil, or just wish to pick up something new to try.

Would you pick up one of the ESQIDO Gel Eyeliner Pencils? Make sure to let me know in the comments, as well as which colour(s) you’d pick up out of the two.

I also want to thank ESQIDO Lashes for sending me another cute little gift review package! They’re such a lovely company to work with and I cannot recommend them enough to people wanting to pick up some new eye make up pieces! 😀

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

Wish List Wednesday – Rainbow Fashion Collab Post!

Today’s wish list Wednesday is such an exciting one and it’s for one reason in particular! This is a collab post with the one and only wonderful blogger, Estelle over at Estellosaurus.

If there is one rainbow queen who I know it is her! I love her outfit posts and I always end up going to look at one piece of clothing she’s wearing in said post online.

It’s because of her that I recently bought myself a new rainbow cardigan and she’ll probably be the cause for many more rainbow purchases… She’s definitely a bad influence. 😛

So we decided to work together to do a collab post and I have been so excited to get it written down! We decided that I would do a wish list Wednesday about rainbow fashion pieces I want and Estelle is going to talk about the rainbow fashion pieces she owns. I would have done the same as Estelle, but sadly I only own two items, which are both my amazing rainbow cardigans! 😀

So without further ado, bring on the rainbow goodies!

  • Monki Rainbow Stripe Tee – (link)

I’ve had my eye on picking up a rainbow stripe tee from Monki for AGES but every time I’ve had a look at one it’s either sold out completely or sold out in my size! When I recently visited Bristol with Dane I had a look in the Monki shop inside Cabot Circus and got super excited! Sadly the rainbow stripe tee wasn’t in my size and it looks really cropped too, which sucked. I’m going to keep the hope alive though for a nice striped rainbow tee like this one!

  • Monki Crew Neck Rainbow Jumper – (link)

This jumper really does remind me of the one that Lazy Oaf brought out and it looks AMAZING! I would love this jumper to rock to work on Monday’s and Friday’s throughout the colder months, as well as over weekends with friends or lazy days in with Dane. I especially love that the sleeves are a little tighter, because although I love baggy sleeves that can hide my hands, it can be a bit of a pain when working. My only issue with this jumper is that it looks cropped… So I’d want to see what it looks like in the Bristol Monki store before buying!

  • Boohoo Rainbow Stripe T-Shirt Dress – (link)

I’ve been after some more t-shirt dresses for a while to wear with my normal black leggings, as well as with my Black Milk Clothing leggings and whilst I’m on a massive rainbow love and high, this top would be awesome to wear with my black leggings all casual and such! I wouldn’t be able to wear this for work, it would purely be for when I can’t be arsed to dress up and want to be comfortable. I could imagine it  being a great t-shirt dress to wear on sick days too. 😛

  • Rocks N Rainbows Ringer Tee – (link)

This is a really cute tee but I wish it was in the UK! I know you can order from the Dolls Kill site and get them sent to the UK, but you know… 😛 ANYWAY! This isn’t technically a rainbow item, but it has a rainbow on it so that counts… Right? 😛 I really love this tee for both work and casual because it’ll just go and work with anything and everything! I especially love the red around the collar and sleeves, it’s a really nice touch and works really well! It also isn’t a bad price either, which I’m always happy with. 😛

  • Club Exx Dark Rainbow Anodized Boots – (link)

Oh man I just had to add these boots to this list! I know they’re not shouting in your face that they’re rainbow, but fuck me are these sexy boots! I love a good pair of Dr Martens boots and live in them throughout autumn and winter, but these are just something else. To me my Docs are my, “Don’t piss me off…” boots, whereas these would be, “Don’t fuck with me!” boots. You know what I mean? They’d just be awesome to wear throughout the autumn months and possibly spring too.

  • Lazy Oaf Pastel Stripe Rainbow Cardigan

This is a cardigan I have been lusting after for the longest time, but these days it’s a bit of a struggle to find unless you remortgage your house first! It was the original Lazy Oaf rainbow bored cardigan that kick started everyone off on the rainbow cardigan craze and I can honestly understand why! Since then, everyone has been either lusting after that cardigan, the one I’m talking about or any others for that matter! I still want this one and as soon as I find it for a decent price, it WILL be mine! I love wearing cardigans for work, as well as in general and this is such a muted and gorgeous colour that I just need it in my life! HEY if you’re selling one and want a decent price for it, DROP ME A COMMENT ASAP! xD

  • Run & Fly Unisex Rainbow Jumper – (link)

Finally we have another jumper on this list and it’s the last thing I’ll be talking about today. This is actually a unisex product and honestly I LOVE unisex and men’s clothing, it’s always so much more comfortable than women’s. This is such a vintage looking jumper and I feel like it’s something you’d have seen someone wear in the 60’s or 70’s. Or even something from the 90’s that someones picked up in a charity shop. This would be super cozy to wear throughout the autumn and winter months, both at work as well as over the weekends for chilly evenings out. It isn’t cheap at £30.00 but I would like to pick it up in the near future.

So those are all my rainbow goodies for my wish list Wednesday! I’m not a massive rainbow magpie, but I do love me some signature rainbow pieces!

I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to Estelle for agreeing to do this rainbow themed collaboration with me! Make sure to head over to her blog to check out what she’s written! I posted her link at the start of this post, but I’ll pop it here too.

Please make sure to go and give Estelle some love, not only is she an amazing and adorable blogger, but she’s also an absolute gem and lovely to talk to. I love that I’ve met her through blogging as she’s definitely one of my favourite bloggers and become a very good blogging friend in such a short period of time.

Anyhoo, I’m off for the day! I hope you all have a lovely day and until next time, take care all!

Petty Bones Club – I’m A Brand Rep!

I have been so excited about writing this blog post with you guys the past couple of weeks now and it is safe to say that I can now FINALLY talk about it!

As you can see from the title today’s blog post is about Petty Bones Club, who were originally called Ayloulou Apparel and who I’ve spoken about in the past on my blog, which you can read here.

If you follow me on social media you will have seen that recently I announced that I had become a brand rep for Petty Bones Club! AHHHH!!! This is like a bloggers dream come true, well for me anyway.

Not only am I excited and happy to be a brand rep, but I am so happy to be a brand rep for Petty Bones Club, whose designs I have loved for nearly a year.

So on today’s blog post I will be talking about the goodies I was sent in my Petty care package, as well talking about what it means to be a brand rep for them.

First of all I’ll talk about what I was sent.

In my package I was sent three stickers and six pin badges. I feel incredibly spoilt, especially considering some of the badges are ones I’ve had my eye on buying for AGES!

The two badges I’ll talk about are the Pokemon messenger ones. There are four altogether in the collection and I was sent two of them. As you can see I got the Charmander* and Squirtle* pins. I love the designs so much as they’re adorable and show each Pokemon’s personality. I love how each of these pins have certain coloured metals to match the colour scheme of the Pokemon.

As you can see there’s gold for Charmander to match the orange, yellow and red theme and silver for Squirtle to match the blue theme. I also love that the backs for these also match the colour of the Pokemon, it’s those cute little touches that really make it for me. I’ve never seen that before and I love it so much.

I honestly cannot wait to use these pin badges and pop them on my cardigans for work, especially in autumn and winter. I recently bought myself another rainbow cardigan so I’ll definitely be rocking these cuties on it throughout the rest of the year!

Another Pokemon pin I was sent was the Sailor Scout Sylveon* which I’ve actually had my eye on for ages!

The PokeScout badges are a mixture of Pokemon and Sailor Moon, which is such a cute concept! I’ve never been anyone do this to date and it’s such a great and original idea! I know Petty Bones Club have a couple of different PokeScout designs out including Pikachu and Vulpix, as well as a Kickstarter which recently finished. I really want the Eevee PokeScout!

The pin badge itself is just perfect and is a gorgeous gold metal which really suits it. The Sylveon has a little crescent on their forehead too which really gives it a slight touch of Sailor Moon, which I like. As I said I’m not a massive Sailor Moon fan so this is perfect for someone like myself.

This next pin is for sure my favourite out of the bunch of goodies I was sent, for various reasons, which I will bore you with. 😛

It was thanks to the first two Studio Ghibli pins that Petty Bones Club that I not only discovered this brand when they were originally called Ayloulou Apparel, but it’s also what started me collection pin badges!

I just fell in love with the Haku pin badge that Petty Bones Club came out with and I had to have No Face too.

SO when I opened my Petty care package and found the Catbus* pin in there, I was so happy. Since then I’ve worn it a few times and had so many compliments on it!

I love how all the Studio Ghibli pins by Petty Bones Club have glitter on them and the glitter on the light in the Catbus windows works so well! It’s also got the gold metal, which again works really lovely with the colour scheme of Catbus.

This is a pin badge I am really excited to wear alongside my other two Studio Ghibli pins, as well as in the autumn months. I’m going to try and hint here (as well as other parts of social media…) for Petty Bones Club to make a Totoro and Soot Sprites!

The last 2 pins that Petty Bones Club sent me are the same ones and they’re the Machamp x Hercules pins, which are so quirky!

As you can see it’s a mash up of Disney and Pokemon which in turn have created this pin badge, which is pretty cool. But you know what the best bit of these are? I’ll be giving these away very soon so keep eyes peeled! 😀

Finally the other things I was sent in my Petty care package, were some adorable stickers! These are a cross over between Sonic and Mario! They’re all adorable and I especially love Tails as Princess Peach. These are going to be stuck into my 2018 journal.

Although you can’t buy the stickers of these on the store you can buy the pins, which I’ll link here… Sonic X Mario, Knuckles X Luigi and Tails X Princess Peach.

So those are all the lovely goodies I was sent from Petty Bones Club!

Now I just want to briefly write a little thank you to Lauren over at Petty Bones Club for picking me to be one of her brand reps. It is an honour to be perfectly honest with you and I really hope I make her proud!

If you love the look of Petty Bones Club pin badges then make sure to check out their store, which I’ll link below as well as go and visit them over on Instagram.

I now have an awesome discount code you can use on their store, which is COFFEE10. Don’t worry if you lose this post on my blog and cannot find the code to use, it will be on the side of my blog from today!

Until next time though guys, take care and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

May 2018 Collective Haul!

I don’t know how managed to collect so much stuff over the course of a month but I have! I haven’t written a haul post in forever so I thought it would be nice to do one today. I just feel like I’m accumulated loads of goodies, some of them are gifts as well which I’ll mention when I get to them. I thought it might be a good idea to write about all the shit (hahaha :P) I’ve purchased recently. I love reading haul posts, especially collectives ones so I thought you guys might have liked to read this too! 😀

  • Barbie x Missguided American Flag Joggers.

Back in May Dane dug out all the McDonald’s Monopoly vouchers he’d gained and he had LOADS of Missguided ones at 30% off. I decided to take the plunge and have a look on the website for what I could treat myself to. Now, Missguided really isn’t my sort of style. I looked for ages for a dress (or two) that I could pick up for work but they’re all going out bodycon style and urgh… I’m too fat and old for that shit now. 😛 I went for a look at the Barbie pieces to see what they might have cute over there and I found these joggers. On my weekends I’m really becoming a joggers/leggings and a geeky top sort of gal when it comes to popping out for errands. I picked these up in a size bigger than I am as I wanted them baggy… I should have ordered my size in all honesty. These are HUGE but at the same time it means they’re really comfortable.

  • Primark Spider-Man T-Shirt.

This t-shirt was bought on a whim after venturing into my nearest Primark store. I’m sucker for a new t-shirt and I especially am when it comes down to anything geek and nerd related! I picked up this t-shirt because of how simplistic and yet adorable it is! I don’t like that the patch is on the side that I wear my braid on, as it means my hair gets caught on it sometimes. I’ll live though! This was only £8.00, which I find a bargain, even for Primark!

  • Black Milk Clothing Midnight Owl Skater Dress.

This was a purchase that I am so happy I made! I love Black Milk Clothing and I especially love their skater dresses. They always make me feel so pretty no matter what and I always get complimented on them. I picked this one up on a whim from eBay, in a size bigger than I usually get, which actually fits really nicely! It’s safe to say, it’s going to now be my go to dress for work, in general and even for special occasions. This only cost me £25, which included P&P. To buy from Black Milk Clothing it would have cost me $85.00 AUS, which converts to £48.42, that wouldn’t even include how much I’d have to pay to ship it to the country and possible charges on top of that as well. URGH, buying through eBay really is the best way! I plan to wear this to a friends wedding in July and I wore it for mine and Dane’s anniversary too. I’m after some more Black Milk Clothing skater dresses now, I honestly can’t get enough of them. I’m scouring eBay daily now for whenever new items are added. I have my eye on a few, but we’ll see what happens.

  • ASOS Lady & The Tramp Sweater.

This was a random purchase on Depop that I made recently, which was also my first Depop purchase! I remember when the matching sweater and joggers of this came out on ASOS 4 years ago and being a Lady & The Tramp fan, I picked up the joggers (which I still own and wear!). I went to order the sweater a week later, but it was sold out. Zoella had worn this set and everyone went mad for it, yuck (I’m not a Zoella fan…). ANYWAY after years of finding this sweater online and it selling out, I finally took the plunge and bought it! It only cost me £13 with P&P which I was so chuffed about! The original cost of this was £30 so I was right to wait 4 years for it… I guess. 😛 It’s weird that I found my wish list post back from July 2014 where I was talking about how I wanted this sweater! I feel so fucking old right now.

  • Snot Girl Volume 2.

I mentioned this comic book series recently on both my May favourites as well as on my June wish list. I remember picking up this comic book a year ago after a YouTuber raving about it. I didn’t realise the story line was going to go the way it has and due to that I love it so much and if I felt that way after reading volume 1 then oh my fucking God this volume is crazy! I won’t say anything in case I give anything away, but this comic book has gone from what I thought was going to just be about a blogger and her drama, but it’s fast turned into some sort of horror/thriller style story based around a blogger. It is so damn good and I would love to see this go into a TV series of a film in the future like how Scott Pilgrim did.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Volume 6.

I feel like I’ve spoken WAY TOO MUCH about this series lately and it’s kind of making me sick now to keep talking about it. 😛 This is a manga series I love and adore and have bought as soon as it’s come out so far for all 6 volumes. I pre ordered this just before it came out and read it as soon as I got it. This is a series I really love and I especially love how now I’m further than the anime series is. I’ve not quite finished reading it yet, but I will do VERY soon. 😛

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life Volume 2.

Another manga I have spoken WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT recently, but can you blame me? It’s amazing and adorable! Also at the same time it’s very strange how the story of Kanna and her friend Saikawa is and this shows more throughout this series. If you love Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid the anime version then you NEED to read this manga series at least! I know so many people who love Kanna, and I can’t blame them really. She’s so adorable and innocent.

These items below are now all gift related!

I recently had some issues with Lush Santa’s Christmas shower cream. It’s a bright red colour and obviously due to what they’ve added to the product to make it this colour, it’s stained various parts of my bath, as well as my shower puff and even my armpits (only for the day though). So I wrote to them on Twitter to complain. They were really helpful and offered to give me my money back, but that meant sending the product back and 1. I couldn’t be arsed to do that and 2. Why the fuck should I have to send it back?! What are they going to do with it that I can’t do myself? AKA throw it away.

They were lovely enough to also offer to sent me some goodies as a sorry, which I opted for. They asked me to list them some products I either love or would like to try. They were nice enough to send me one of my favourite products, as well as new one I’ve been wanting to try!

I just want to quickly add here that I know a lot of shit has been going on and happening around Lush lately due to their recent and disgraceful campaign. I don’t agree with it whatsoever. I also want to add I haven’t bought from Lush since I picked up the Santa’s Christmas shower creams just after Boxing Day. I need to really address my thoughts and feelings on Lush lately, but we will save that for another post!

  •  Lush Supertramp Bubble Bar.

This is the product I mentioned being one of my favourites. I remember back in 2015 when me and Dane went to London and it was the first time I’d been to the Oxford Street Lush! This was an exclusive to the store at the time and as I loved Tramp shower gel back in the day, I knew I had to give the bubble bar a go too! The bubble bar to me is better as it isn’t as strong and it’s one I love to use when I’m feeling under the weather with hayfever or a cold. It really clears my head. I’m so happy Lush sent me this and even happier that if and when I need to buy another bar of it, I now can on their website.

  • Lush Oaty Creamy Dreamy Oat Milk Shower Cream.

This was the product I wanted to try as I haven’t really heard much about it, but when seeing how it’s made in the past it looks really moisturising! It smells amazing to be honest and really surprised me. I was expecting creamy oat and vanilla scents, but this smells heavily of lavender, which is in fact one of the ingredients. If you love lavender, you’ll love this! It’s not a thick shower cream like Santa’s Christmas and you only need a little of this for it to go a long way. This is definitely a shower cream you’d ideally want to use before bed, but I love using it in the morning on my days off as the scent does perk me up. I’ll probably buy a big bottle of this for my mom at Christmas as she loves her lavender scents.

This wasn’t a gift from Lush but actually from my manager at work! It’s belated birthday present and I am oh so grateful for it! She gave it me just before I broke up for my week off work and I used it the next morning before going to work.

  • Lush Plum Rain Shower Gel.

This is a shower gel from Lush I’ve wanted to try since it came out, but I just never have. When my manager gave it to me I was so happy and excited! So much so I opened it up for a sniff at my desk. 😛 She had heard of me saying how much I love Snow Fairy and popped into the store to try and get one, but alas being a Christmas product they didn’t have it in stock. I can only assume that the staff recommended Plum Rain to her and if so, they did a good job! Then again, what else could they really recommend?! Their shower gel selection is so shit these days! I mean come on Lush, why did you discontinue The Comforter?! Surely it wasn’t doing poor in sales… I find it hard to believe myself… ANYWAY this has a gorgeous fresh scent and it actually reminds me of Christmas due to The Body Shop’s old sugar plum shower gel! This doesn’t smell as sweet as theirs though. Either way I love using this in the mornings as the scent really does wake you up!

So that was my collective haul! I know it doesn’t seem/look like a lot but bloody hell I’ve been spend happy lately! I was also going to mention mine and Dane’s anniversary presents but I’ll save that for a separate post.

I was also going to mention some of the pin badges I’ve bought from Ohayou! Clothing through their Kickstarter and Patreon but I’m going to save those for a separate post as well as I think they deserve some love all on their own! 😀 Not only will I be talking about pin badges but I intend to talk about all of their items I own so far, as well as items I’d like to own! Stay tuned for that, it’s been a post I’ve been meaning to write for the longest time!

What have you guys been buying the past month or so? Make sure to let me know down in the comments!

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

June Wish List ’18

I cannot believe we are now officially halfway through 2018. Where did May go?! I think most of it was spent enjoying the hot weather and having bank holidays to even realise it was going, going, gone!

Now it’s June and I REALLY struggled with my wish list this month. I’m so naughty, all the books I was lusting after and added to this list I have now bought as I really wanted them. Other than that it was so incredibly hard to try and come up with stuff to add to the list.

It’s mine and Dane’s fifth anniversary in a couple of days too so you’d think I’d post items that I’d be all, “YEAH I’D LOVE FOR DANE TO BUY ME THIS HINT HINT!” but I doubt that’s going to happen! 😛

URGH enough chitty chat, let’s get on with the wish list for this month.

  • Nintendo Switch Mario Tennis Aces – (link)

I haven’t actually bought myself any games for mine and Dane’s Nintendo Switch yet and we’ve owned it since March! I’ve had my eye on the new Mario tennis game since it was announced in March, not long before we’d bought our Switch funny enough. I’m a sucker for tennis games and for years have wanted the Mario tennis game on 3DS. This would be so much fun to play solo as well as with Dane! I’ll definitely be picking it up, especially from Smyths where you can save £5 off of your pre orders.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Vol. 6 – (link)

As regular readers of my blog will know, I’m loving the manga series of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid! I loved the anime, which was out last spring/summer so when I heard about the manga coming out in English, I picked it up to read. Since then, as soon as it comes out I order it! This has already been pre-ordered so I cannot wait for it to arrive now.

  • Living Dead Clothing My Neighbour Skater Dress – (link)

I’m a massive sucker for the dresses that the likes of Black Milk Clothing and Living Dead Clothing come out with, although I am yet to try the latter. I remember when Living Dead used to have their Studio Ghibli designs, but they didn’t stick around long. Recently I noticed two of the designs I wanted before were back AND they’re both in dresses, this one included. I really want to order it as a massive treat to myself, but for almost £50 before shipping, my soul is dying a little inside at the thought of it. I’ll see though if I fancy giving myself a massive fucking treat in the future.

  • Snotgirl Volume 2 – (link)

This has already been ordered and I cannot wait for it to arrive! During my May Favourites I wrote about how I’d loved reading volume 1 of Snotgirl so as soon as the second comic book came out I KNEW I had to order it right away! I can’t wait for this to arrive now so I can read it sooner rather than later.

  • Kidrobot Marvel Deadpool Riding A Unicorn Plush – (link)

I don’t quite know how, but recently I stumbled across this plush online and holy fucking shit how cute is it?! This is a massive Deadpool plushie that is riding a unicorn, but the best bit is that it vibrates/rumbles when you hug it or clap at it. Why? Well, why not? 😛 I don’t need this, but I REALLY want it! It’d be so awesome to cuddle! This also comes in a smaller version too, which may be the better one to opt for. 😛

  • Lime Crime Plushies in shade Cherry Soda – (link)

Since these were announced agggges ago I’ve wanted to try the Lime Crime plushies lipsticks, especially the shade Cherry Soda, but as of yet I just haven’t ordered it. There’s only one place that stocks this limited edition shade and that’s Cult Beauty. I do want to order it… BUT I don’t really wear lipstick anymore… 😦 I might treat myself to it soon enough though.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life Vol. 2 – (link)

ANOTHER manga and it’s also another Miss Kobayashi one… It’s also one I’ve pre-ordered. 😛 The Kanna’s Daily Life series is adorable and I really do love being able to read more about the baby dragon of the family. This is only volume 2 and I cannot wait to read it, like I said I really do love this series.

  • Nana Ebina Nendoroid – (link)

This is the final item on this months wish list, purely because I want her so damn much and she’s now available to buy. Nana Ebina is from the anime Himouto! Umaru-Chan and is school friends with Umaru and in turn is my favourite, so when I saw they’d announced a Nendoroid for her I was so excited! She’s an anxious character in many ways but she’s so sweet and adorable. I didn’t realise she came with the blue and white cuddle pillow cat from the show either but apparently she does! I’m hoping deep down that for our anniversary Dane has bought me Nana Ebina… I’ll report after our anniversary! 😉

So that was my wish list for June! I’m sorry it wasn’t anything too exciting, I’m rather boring lately when it comes to buying things. 😛

What’s on your wish lists for June? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, I hope you’ve had an amazing weekend!
