Currently #10

It’s July and it has also been WAY TOO LONG since I last wrote a currently list! List number 9 was way back in March. It honestly feels like yesterday when I was writing that one which I’ll also link here if you want to go and check it out! 😀

Due to the minor issues that have come up on my blog with Photobucket (which I wrote about recently here) not allowing my images to show anymore (IN MY HEAD IT’S ACTUALLY A FUCKING CAR CRASH AND I’M BURNING…) I’m trying to quickly get a blog post out there for you awesome lot!

It’s my day off and I could easily say I have done sod all, but I’ve actually done LOADS of housework and had to pop out with Dane this afternoon to run some errands and get the McFlurry that I’ve been craving for God knows how long (FYI before anymore suggests, no I am not pregnant. I’m just a fat bitch and love ice cream. :P) so that was pretty awesome, especially considering how hot it is today.

So now after playing Persona 5 for a couple of hours and cooking me and Dane dinner I’m now sat at the computer with every window open, my headphones on and my random playlist of music on.

Let’s get on with currently number 10! 😀

Watching – I can’t honestly say I’ve watched anything major recently. Me and Dane finished RuPaul’s Drag Race season 9 and my girl Sasha Velour won, which I was so damn happy and proud of! She definitely did the best throughout the competition in my opinion so I’m just so chuffed. Me and my best friend Gabriella have already said we’ll be going to see her live when she comes to the UK. Oh man I cannot wait for that day! We also finished watching Attack on Titan season 2 and it was fucking amazing! I didn’t feel bored at all throughout and if anything was on the edge of my seat after every single episode. Dane is up to date on the manga series at the moment which is quite far ahead of the anime, so after every episode ended I would turn to him and ask him to explain what’s going on and what will happen next. I won’t talk too much about it as I know whilst a lot of UK fans have watched it, I also know some who read my blog and haven’t. I don’t want to spoil any of it for you lovely lot, just hurry up and watch it already! 😉

A show we did binge watch last month however was GLOW, which is a Netflix exclusive show created by the same people at Orange is The New Black, which we also binge watched last month and for your information, Piper still annoys the fuck out of me. ANYWAY! GLOW is about the Glamorous Women of Wresting and is set in the 80’s. From looking for a gif for this post I discovered that this was an ACTUAL thing in the 80’s, which I think is pretty cool! At first I wasn’t sure if I would like the show as the trailer didn’t really do it any justice after watching. I also worried I would dislike the main character Ruth. She’s an aspiring actress who can’t seem to get a break and a role that she so badly wants. That is until she joins GLOW. Some other stuff happens along the show and it just makes the show great! My favourite character by far is Sam, who is the director of GLOW. He’s got a sarcastic and dry sense of humour which I love so damn much. At times I just wanted to reach into the screen and pat him on the back… and maybe a cuddle. They’ve already announced a season 2 by the looks of it and judging by how season 1 ended it needs to have another season! I cannot wait to be honest as I already know it’ll be amazing. I already miss all the characters.

Reading – I’ve really not been reading as much as I used to and instead have replaced that with playing Persona 5 and focusing loads of my blog. This is also mainly due to manga series I’m reading being finished or having to wait for new volumes to come out. I did however recently buy Your Name (Kimi no Na wa in Japanese) manga, to coincide with the anime movie with the same name. I finished the first volume recently and it is amazing! I’m really excited to read the rest as they have added a little more to the manga than they did in the anime. I also recently bought volume 3 of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid. I really love the manga as again, it is telling  more of a story than the anime did. Volume 3 also appears to introduce a new dragon that watchers of the anime won’t have seen yet! Other than that, that is all I have read recently. I still have K-ON! to read but I want to save those for my holiday. I can’t see this happening however. 😛

Listening – I haven’t really listened to any new albums lately, not even the new cKy album, which I have shocked myself with! Sadly I just haven’t felt like I’ve had time to sit down and properly listen to it. I might however get Dane to download it tomorrow if not over the weekend for us to listen to together after I finish work over the weekend.

I have found myself listening to loads of anime and game music however, which I’m loving! One of the opening songs from Gintama has stuck in my head and I love it so much! There is a full version of this song but I thought I’d just show the one from the actual opening. This is an anime Dane has been watching so when I heard this song I instantly fell in love with the chorus. It’s just so damn catchy and sounds so positive. Also as weeabo as this sounds, Gintama is a little itty bitty titty hot. xD

Otherwise any other music I’ve been listening to lately has been a mixture of Nirvana, Daft Punk and random bits and pieces on both my YouTube account and on my iPod.

Eating – Mmm food huh? I haven’t really been eating properly lately due to my mental health acting up. I find if anything I’ve not eaten anything special and just binging on carbs, but that’s the norm for me! 😛 Me and Dane have eaten less takeaways lately which is great of course! 😛

Me and Dane did recently visit an amazing milkshake and waffle place with our friends Lee and Sam and it was amazing. I went for a Ferraro Roche waffle and surprisingly I ate it all! Me and Dane also shared a Nutella milkshake actually out of a Nutella jar, which had a brownie on the top! It was really nice but a little too sugary for myself. Otherwise it was great and I can see us all going there again in the future.

Wearing – God it’s been so damn hot that I feel like I’ve hardly been wearing anything! Been living in dresses and my short pyjamas pretty much. I bought a couple of Pokemon pairs from Primark recently and I still wear them to death and wear them loads. I’ve also been wearing the cKy baseball tee I bought at their gig to death! I love it so much and a part of me can see me taking it on holiday to wear to chill out in in the day and evenings. I also bought myself a Pikachu dress recently and I’ve only worn it once so far but I intend to wear it again very soon. For how much I paid for it it’s so damn comfortable and makes me feel great when I wear it.

Wanting – Oh what don’t I want? To win loads of money on a scratch card, to have more holiday time from work so I can do stuff to the house and speaking of the house new windows! A holiday to Japan is also another thing I desperately want right now. There’s all sorts I want though to be honest. I’ve fallen in love with a few pieces from the VANS x Peanuts collection, as well as some Killstar dresses. OH and don’t even get me started on some of the latest Nendoroid releases that both me and Dane want. It’s all just money though at the moment. Right now though all I want is a break. A break from my anxiety as my head is on and off a mess right now and it pisses me off something awful. 😦

Wow so that was my currently number 10! I love that I’ve written that many over the past couple of years now and it makes me so happy. I’m not going to stop here though, I’ll continue writing these as I really love to be able to keep you guys up to date on things I’m currently loving.

Of course I would love to hear what things you’re currently loving. Make sure to let me know in the comments tomorrow if not over at my Twitter page @maybeecoffee

Until next time take care all, I hope you’re having a great week so far. Not long not and it’ll be the weekend!

Holiday Wish List

It’s only a whole three months away now, which is going to FLASH BEFORE MY EYES! Legit it probably will flash before my eyes… 😛 I’m trying to keep myself on a spending ban until the holiday is over due to wanting to save money FOR the holiday. However I do want to pick up some new bits and pieces to take with me. You know the usual holiday stuff… Bikini, shorts, skirts, sandals… Etc etc etc!

I’m not going to lie, I was super excited to write this post for weeks after eyeing up LOADS of bikinis, but now the sales have hit so many of them have gone and I am GUTTED. This list isn’t going to be as big as I originally planned it to be… But oh well! 😛 I tried really hard to be honest to get a decent list together! Just goes to show I didn’t need as much as I thought I did. 😛

  • New Look Pool To Party Turquoise Sequin Wrap Front Bikini Top – £14.99 (link)
  • New Look Pool To Party Turquoise Sequin Tie Side Bikini Bottoms – £9.99 (link)

I  have had my eye on quite a few bikini sets from New Look so far this year, as I mentioned in my May wish list (which you can read here). That has sadly sold out online now due to it going in the sale, so it’s one I’ll have to keep my eye out for in stores. ANYWAY This bikini set is better in my opinion though to be honest as not only can you wear it by the pool but teamed up with a pair of shorts you could wear it out and about. I wouldn’t do this myself as I feel conscious about my stomach. BUT it just looks so pretty! I definitely want to get it for my holiday. It just looks so pretty for a summer holiday and has a mermaid look to it. As well as that I love the fastening across the back as it means you don’t have to piss around with tying two straps, just the one around the neck. I’ll definitely try and get this one instead of leaving it too late like the other. 😛

  • Vans X Peanuts Skates Crewneck Sweatshirt – £55.00 (link)

This is definitely one of my favourite items on this list. I was actually going to add it to my July wish list but NAHHHHH I want it for holiday and to be honest it’s definitely an excuse to get it before I go, or at least try and find it for sale whilst I’m over in Fuerteventura. It’s a sweatshirt with loads of cute pictures of Snoopy on, as well as Woodstock. I’d rock this with jeans and shorts and probably wear it to death throughout the autumn and winter season. 😛

  • Iron Fist Deerly Dress – £45.00 (currently in sale for £26.99) – (link)

This is a dress I had my eye out for buying and wearing to a wedding, but I wasn’t able to go to that so I never ended up buying it. I love Iron Fist dresses, they’re amazing quality for the price and really comfortable to wear. I’ve taken and worn an Iron Fist dress on holiday before and it was perfect for evening wear as well as day wear due to the gorgeous red colour. As the name suggests it does have a deer theme to it, which is the print. There is the white spots you would find on a deer, as well as some little white skulls which I love, it really gives that Iron Fist feel to it.

  • Vans X Peanuts Slide-On Sandals – £25.00 (link)

I have a love and hate relationship with sliders right now. They look awesome, especially these and even some holographic ones I’ve eyed up online. BUT SERIOUSLY what the fuck are these ugly fluffy sliders everyone is wearing right now? Can we burn them? 😛 But I have seen a few pairs I like the look for but the most tasteful ones I’ve found to date are these Vans X Peanuts collaboration ones! They’re black (tick!), they have Snoopy and Woodstock on (tick, tick!) and they’re Vans (TICK, TICK, TIIIICK!)! What more could I ask for? 😛 I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for them to go into the sale. 😉

  • New Look Pool To Party Turquoise Sequin Swimsuit – £29.99 (link)

I am not a fan of wearing swimming costumes/swimsuits as I love tanning and wearing a swimsuit won’t help you tan! Well your legs and arms yeah, but sweet FA else. This however is something I would like to wear in the daytime and evening with a skirt or a pair of shorts to make an outfit. I wouldn’t want to pay the full price for it mind as I find it’s a bit expensive for what it is! It does look gorgeous though and honestly it just looks like a great piece of evening wear.

  • Killstar Dye Fast Woodstock Maxi Dress TIEDYE – £44.99 (currently in sale for £29.99) – (link)

I’ve had my eye on picking up another Killstar dress for ages but always left it due to saving money. I definitely want to get another one for the holiday and I’ve had my eye on the rainbow tie dye for ages! There’s two styles for this print, the maxi dress and the sun dress (which you can find here). I like both dresses for various reasons but I seem to be swaying towards the maxi dress more for various reasons. This would be lovely to wear more so in the evening when the sun is down than in the day. This is mostly due to the pentagram print on the back, I wouldn’t want that tanned into my back. 😛

  • Vans X Peanuts Riffs Dress – £60.00 – (link)

This is the last item on this list and one I’m 50/50 about, mainly due to the price! I’ve wanted a denim dress for at least two years now but I can’t seem to find a decent one anywhere. They’re either too thin, too thick or don’t suit my shape. Of course this one may happen to have the same issues I’ve encountered before, but I just love how this has pictures of Snoopy all over. It’s just so different and something I wouldn’t mind grabbing for the holiday. It’s just so expensive sadly. 😦 Sooo we shall see!

That’s my holiday wish list! I know it’s nothing special, but I’m quite laid back with holidays, especially to Fuerteventura. 🙂

Do you have any shops I should check out for holiday pieces? Please share links in the comments down below or over on my Twitter account @maybeecoffee

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

MCM Comic Con – Birmingham

On Saturday me and Dane went to the Birmingham Comic Con and it was one of my favourite ones to date! Maybe not over Hyper Japan for obvious reasons… 😛

It was pretty much a last minute decision to go after umming and ahhing for a couple of weeks and due to this we weren’t able to grab priority tickets like we did back at the 2014 Comic Con. This being said it turned out well as we booked our parking in advance so we didn’t have to pay after etc etc. We got there an hour early and had to wait what felt like 10 minutes to be let into the convention. Then we had 6 hours of browsing around the stalls, doing some shopping, admiring all the amazing cosplayers and have a good time.

Before I go onto what amazing cosplayers I met and had pictures with throughout the day I want to show off what I wore as I loved it so damn much and got loads of compliments on it!

A few weeks prior to Comic Con I did my weekly eBay search of Black Milk Clothing bargains and came across this Adventure Time dress. These came out YEARS ago and are now museum pieces, meaning they aren’t coming back unless Black Milk decide to release a limited amount. I wanted this dress back when it first came out but due to money and such I didn’t get it. What probably would have cost near to $100 AUS dollars I go for £35. What a bargain! Of course the pattern as you can see is Lumpy Space Princess who I adore!

It’s a skater dress so it flares out a little which I find to be the best style for my figure. The material is lovely and think meaning if it needs to stretch a little the pattern on it won’t get ruined. I teamed it up with a long white t-shirt as I knew it would be too cold outside to wear it without anything underneath. All about the layering in the winter time! I also teamed it with black tights (which I wish had been thicker!), my triumph Dr Martens boots, my new red coat from M&S and a navy choker.

So when we were ready to go we set off to Comic Con!

This was one of my favourite comic cons I’ve attended to date for one reason, all the amazing pictures I managed to get with cosplayers! I’ll be talking about who I saw in the order I saw them!

The first cosplay we spotted was this amazing Totoro from Studio Ghibli My Neighbour Totoro, which is one of mine and Dane’s favourite movies. I never usually have pictures with anyone at conventions as I often feel too shy or they walk off and I never get chance to have a picture at all. However I shoved my way in the best I could and got my picture.

The next cosplayer we saw was another Studio Ghibli related one, which is from my favourite movie, Spirited Away. This person was dressed as No Face and was definitely one of the best cosplayers I saw all day! I’ve never really seen anyone dress as No Face before so I was so excited to see him. Again like Totoro I waited for my turn to have a picture and got it. By this point I was like a little kid, I was so happy!

This next cosplayer felt kind of official due to where you had to stand to have a picture and although there wasn’t an official queue, it did feel like you were queuing to have your picture with him. Of course it’s Deadpool and oh my God he was a legend! Of course it would have been better if it was Ryan Reynolds, but hey it was a guy dressed as Deadpool, a proper costume too not a shitty morphe suit! No offense to anyone who wears/wore a Deadpool morphe suit… 😛

When I went over to him I didn’t expect him to talk, but he did! He say hello, asked if I was okay and even complimented me on my dress and said, “Purple really suits you!” WHAT A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING!

Ahem… Anyway! He got me to put my hand in a backwards C shape to form a heart and thus our picture was taken. I loved how chatty he was and how into the role of Deadpool he was. It was amazing and I hope everyone got the chance to get a picture with him who loves Deadpool just as much as I do. OH and he even has his little unicorn. 😛

This cosplayer was one of the hardest to get a picture with and I’m so glad I did to be honest, even though I did feel like a pain in the arse. I was tired, as was Dane and I couldn’t be arsed to push and shove to get a picture BUT by not doing this a lot of people were being rude and barging their way through. One girl in particular was very rude and as I went over to have my picture she barged past me. I ended up calling her something very nasty (begins with a C…) and walked off. Later on however I saw the Totoro again and this time with the cosplayers family who were dressed as Satsuki and Mei and not only did a somewhat get a picture of them all together, but I finally got my picture with Totoro.

After taking some photographs of me by the big MCM Comic Con sign we were just about ready to go home when we saw the last cosplayers we had pictures with and by far the best ones we had pictures with. Dane had wanted to get a picture with a Stormtrooper (or two) all day and we never got the chance to. So we saw them having pictures with some other people and went over to have ours done too. Dane had his picture taken first which he loves, but then it was my turn and it got funny very fast!

They had proper Stormtrooper armour on that also had voice changers inside so they sounded like the ones from the movies. They told me to get down on my knees as I was being arrested and proper went for it! The officer in black wasn’t there beforehand but when he saw how I was having my picture taken he got into the picture without me knowing… Until I saw the picture anyway! I loved the two pictures that me and Dane got with the Stormtroopers and a part of me wants to pop them in a frame at some point so we can remember what an amazing day we had.

Haul wise we bought each other a couple of Christmas presents, as well as some pictures for the house, but in Dane and Natalee tradition we always get at least one picture drawn of us, which is this one. We both love it so much and it’ll go in a frame and put in the house somewhere.

After a long day we came home cooked some dinner and relaxed. We had a lovely time at Comic Con and it was definitely better than the first one we attended together in 2014. My only negative about it this year was how many fake Nendoroid’s were flying around. One stall in particular annoyed me as it just sold nothing but fake items. You could tell they were fake too… I wanted to say something to some guys buying them but I couldn’t, I didn’t want to worry I would be kicked out for being rude or offensive.

Other than that it was amazing and I can’t wait to either attend Comic Con again or even Hyper Japan next year!

Did you go to an MCM Comic Con event this year? If so let me know which one and which cosplayers you saw and loved! You may have even attended Birmingham like I did! If so what did you do there? Make sure to leave all your comments down below!

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

September ’16 Wish List

Gosh I really struggled to get this wish list put together this month and I really don’t know why! I did feel like I was lusting after more things coming up to September but alas that doesn’t appear to be the case.

I managed to scrape a list together mind and I can actually see September being a very naughty month for me… I would have included the Kat Von D items I’m hoping to pick up from Debenhams mid September but I want to have a separate post for that.

But for now here is my wish list for September, woohoo!

 photo September 2016 Wish List_zpswkbnq9hz.jpg

  • Beauty Bakerie Matte Lip Whip in She’s Just Jelly – £15.95 (link)

As regular readers of my blog will know I love wearing lipsticks and especially liquid lipsticks. Although I love my Jeffree Star Cosmetics liquid lipsticks I am always open to trying other brands. I have heard nothing but great things about Beauty Bakerie and would love to give their matte lip whips a go! I’ve had my eye on She’s Just Jelly which is a lovely dark purple shade, which will be perfect for autumn and winter.

  • Oh K! Cherry Blossom Hand Cream – £6.50 (link)

I’ve heard quite a bit about Oh K! recently from various bloggers and it looks like such an adorable brand, very kawaii! I have wanted something from the range for quite a while now but I hadn’t quite seen anything I liked the look of until now. I love hand cream and can never get enough of it, I put this down to my eczema… But how adorable is the packaging for this hand cream??? It’s an adorable panda and I would make sure to keep reusing the pot after using the hand cream up. Plus it has a cherry blossom scent, can’t get any better than that eh? I’ll be keeping my eye on this and picking it up when I need a treat.

  • Blink-182 California Album – £4.99 (link)

I have listened to this album already… Many times in fact and I love it so much! I haven’t listened to an album like this for a long time where I just want to keep listening to it, so I’m really pleased about that as you may have guessed. The band just seem better off without Tom DeLonge and instead with Matt Skiba. I always preferred +44 because their music just wasn’t kiddy and silly all the time. If you loved +44 like I did then you will love Blink-182 now Tom has gone!  I don’t know if I’ll buy this as a CD, instead I might just pick it up on iTunes. I can’t believe how cheap CD’s are now!

  • Soft Kitty Clothing Pastel Pika Dress – £17.00 (link)

I’m a sucker for lycra clothing, usually Black Milk Clothing but 1. they’re super expensive and 2. they haven’t yet released a Pokemon collection. I recently discovered Soft Kitty Clothing through a seller on Depop and decided to check out the clothing on their website for myself. Well there really are some little gems on there, including this dress. I’m a massive Pokemon nerd so this dress is really up my street, and at £17.00 it’s a complete bargain too. I don’t know if I’ll ever buy this to be honest as whilst I am brave enough to wear all sorts out and about, I don’t know if I would be able to feel confident in this dress… I guess teamed up with some nice shoes and a cool jacket I could pull it off… We shall see. I would love if they made an Eeveelutions or Mew dress.

  • Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask – £10.57 (link)

If you haven’t heard or seen people talking about this mask on blogs and YouTube then you need to crawl up from under your rock and get searching. This is a Korean face mask that everyone seems to be trying at the moment. It’s a mask that reacts with oxygen to foam up and expand, and let me tell you it looks really cool! I’ll pop the link to where Bunny over at grav3yardgirl tried it. I really want to give this a go as not only does it look cool but it actually sounds like an awesome face mask to try.

  • Village Candle Wax Melts in Sugarplum Fairy – £3.90 (link)

Village Candle are a brand I haven’t tried before but Dane has and they are beautiful candles. Just as good as Yankee Candle’s to be honest. Near to where I live someone was selling these in a store so I got to smell pretty much all the scents. Sadly when I went to go and purchase this she had left and was only selling online from then on. Was a real shame to be honest but meh at least I can buy from her online. Sugarplum Fairy is a scent that I can’t really describe… All I can say about it is that it smells sweet and reminds me of something I would have smelt and fallen in love with as a child. I’m burning wax tarts like crazy of late so I would love to add these to my collection in the future.

  • Build A Bear Pokemon Eevee Set – £48.50 (link)

I have saved the best until last for this post and this is definitely something I will be buying as soon as I am paid (in 6 days!!!!!) as I really want it! I heard about the rumor of an Eevee joining the Build A Bear store but I didn’t quite believe it… That is until pictures leaked. Due to all the leaks and excitement around this teddy Build A Bear decided to release it early. AHHH! At the time of writing this post the Eevee came out today, and has already sold out in America. I know it’s expensive but there is a reason for that. You get the Eevee, two outfits, a voice box inside so it can speak and a limited edition Pokemon card exclusively for Build A Bear. I really want to order this right now, but I’m skint so I won’t be able to. Plus it’s now out of stock in the UK… Sad times. This is so damn cute! I’d end up keeping it downstairs in the living room to snuggle into whilst watching TV with Dane. I’m such a big kid, I don’t even care!

So that was my wish list for September! What goodies do you have your eye on this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

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

May ’16 Wish List

Hello May, we’re nearly halfway through the year! Surely you aren’t due yet? Oh, what? You are? Oh right. I’m hoping that May will bring plenty of awesome things, as well as some better weather considering there has been some snow!

I am going to try to continue with a spending ban, only buying things I actually need, and every two months I’ll treat myself to some Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks. Woop woop!

There are more clothes on here than I imagined there would be, and there would be even more if I had included the Star Wars clothing Hot Topic have just come out with! I’ll save that for another day.

  • L’Occitane Almond Velvet Hands SPF15 – £18.00 (link)

I mentioned a few days ago on my April favourites how I love L’Occitane’s hand creams, and when I found out they were bringing a new version out of the Almond one, I was even more excited. This one is a little different as it includes SPF15, and it’s said to leave your hands looking smooth, and basically not old. 😛 My hands look haggard lately due to my eczema flaring up, so I imagine this hand cream would help them look a little more youthful. I would love it for the summer. Plus who can say no to the lovely light pink tube!?

  • M&S Denim Playsuit – was £ 39.50 now £19.75 (link)

I wouldn’t really describe this as a playsuit, more of a pair of short dungarees… I love them! I’ve seen them when popping through my local M&S and they do look really good quality. They’re currently in their sale, which is how I discovered that their price had gone down. I think I might try to pick these up soon as I would wear them to death in the summer. I’d team them up with a geeky t-shirt, tights, and my Jake Dr Martens. I’d look proper geeky and everything! 😛

  • Fujifilm Instax Share Printer – £129.00 (link)

I have a cool and funky DIY idea in mind which I want to do soon, and I need this awesome printer to do it with! I want to make a photo frame where there is string inside, with pegs attached onto it, and on the pegs I would attach pictures of me and Dane, but Polaroid  ones of course! This isn’t cheap, but considering you can print any pictures you want, it’s pretty nifty. I don’t know when I’ll get this, as it’s pretty expensive. But nonetheless I would love it at some point in the future.

  • PuppyCat Wallet – £34.99 (link)

I love Bee and PuppyCat, both the show, as well as the comic book! So when I found this wallet on Amazon a couple of months ago I instantly fell in love with it. I don’t need a new wallet, and to be honest I don’t wish to replace mine anytime soon but this one is just too cute not have in the future. I’ll be keeping my eye on it as a treat, or a gift idea. I like when people buy me wallets… I don’t know why.

  • MAC Cosmetics Versicolour Stain in shade Resilient Rose – £20.00 (link)

I have been pretty excited for these coming out since they were announced, and when I recently popped to my local MAC counter I decided to swatch a couple of the shades, including this one. I loved the other shades I checked out, but this cherry red won me over! I won’t be buying this anytime soon due to how expensive this is, but fingers crossed in the future that I can pick it up as a treat. I’d apply it over a lip liner or on its own. This isn’t as long-lasting as a liquid lipstick, but the stain it left behind on the back of my hand didn’t wash off properly for a few days, which was a good sign for me!

  • Hot Topic Studio Ghibli Spirited Away No-Face Girls Sweater – was $44.50 now $33.37 (link)

I have been in love with this jumper for a long time, since seeing someone on my Instagram wearing it! I nearly ordered it at the start of my holiday last month when I felt like crap, but left it due to wanting to save money. I love Spirited Away, it’s definitely my favourite Studio Ghibli movie, so what better than a jumper with No Face on, eh? I’ll definitely buy this in the future, and team it up with leggings, and my Jake Dr Martens to really geek it up.

  • Pokemon TCG Mythical Pokemon Collection: Mew – £29.94 (link)

I used to play the Pokemon trading card game when I was growing up, and I loved it! I soon stopped mind the older I got. Over the past couple of years I’ve wanted to take it back up again and play with people, but alas as of yet I haven’t… Although now that Pokemon have brought out the mythical collection’s, I want to start the old hobby up more than ever! These aren’t cheap though, and considering there’s 12 to come out in total this year… I could be pretty poor if I do take the plunge and get them. Oh woe.

  • Killstar Bad Habits Dress – £34.99 (link)

I’ve always lusted after clothing by Killstar. They’re very gothic looking, and beautiful, so right up my street pretty much! I have a dress similar to this that I’ve owned since I was 20 but that’s starting to see its last days now, and I’d love an upgrade! I’ll be keeping my eye on it in the future for a naughty purchase.

  • BB-8 Droid by Sphero – £129.99 (link)

I’ve wanted this adorable BB-8 since it was announced before Christmas, but alas I don’t own it yet. I can get this £100 brand new which is awesome, but even so if I was to buy this for myself, it would be a very expensive and luxurious gift to myself. I know Dane wants this too, so at some point soon we could buy it and split it. Maybe as a treat to ourselves in June for our third anniversary together? We shall see!

Those are some of the items I am lusting after for May. I am pretty sure I have missed things, but as I cannot think of them right now they’ll have to be missing until June now, which I’m sure will be here before I know it!

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

Until next time all, take care and I hope everyone is having a great week.

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?

  • 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.
