Happy Easter!

I can’t for the life of me remember if I’ve ever written and wished my readers a happy Easter… Well no time for the present!

It’s late Easter Sunday now and me and Dane have had a really lazy day together. It was Dane’s birthday on Friday so we did contemplate doing a long weekend full of outings and nice things that he’d want to do for his birthday. Alas we didn’t really do that today.

As I did last year I baked Dane a birthday cake. Last year I made him a Deadpool cake and this year I decided to do an Easter nest cake to coincide with the Easter weekend. It turned out better than I planned and I loved making it. I’ve only had once slice so far, but I intend to polish off the last piece Tuesday on my day off of work.

Today consisted of playing retro games on my PlayStation 1 and 2, which was a lot of fun! Played some oldies such as Crazy Taxi, Tomb Raider and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

I sadly didn’t get a copy of the Easter egg Dane bought before he smashed it and ate some, but we got a picture of mine! I haven’t eaten it still… It looks so cute and too nice to eat. 😥 I did however tuck into some Mini Eggs. Has to be done!

I also had myself a relaxing bath after starting out Easter Sunday dinner, which Dane finished off with a bit of assistance from myself.

For the first time ever I made my own roast potatoes and guess what? They turned out just as I hoped they would, if not better according to Dane! I’ve not made us a proper Sunday roast yet but I plan to give it a go very soon for my family. Me and Dane decided recently that for Christmas this year we’ll spend the day at home together and cook our Christmas dinner together. I know that’s a long way ahead to think of but it’ll be here again before we know it!

This Easter has been amazing and definitely one of my favourites. Not only was it Dane’s birthday, but we also spent a lovely long weekend together. We went for a birthday lunch with Dane’s parents, I baked his birthday cake, cooked our alternative Sunday dinner and we went to the Nature Centre in Birmingham together too and got to see the red pandas playing together.

It’s definitely been a weekend I’ve needed. The week after next we have a week off together to do fun things, as well as do some little finishing touches to the house. I honestly cannot wait.

Times like this remind me of how much I love Dane and just how much he means to me… Which is the world.

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you have had a lovely day, and weekend as a matter of fact.

Have you done anything special? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time take care all and I hope you enjoy the rest of the day.

March Wish List 17

I should really call this wish list the “Japanese and geeky shit” wish list as apart from the two 101 Dalmatians mugs that’s pretty much all it is!

I’m not going to lie I haven’t made this months picture for my wish list look all that great… It just looks so clumpy and I hate it. BUT I blame all the manga books I put into it. I mean come on there’s 7 volumes clumped together there! 😛

So I’ll just run with my wish list this month. I am still on my spending ban however and if I buy anything off of it it’ll be the manga as currently manga is quite a big percentage of my life right now.

  • Pokemon Center Easter Pikachu Plush (Sadly no link right now and prices vary)

This collection was announced not long ago and as soon as I saw this little cutie I just fell in love! I know it’s childish but I need her in my Pokemon collection so badly. I just love how it isn’t in your face Easter either. The cute little flower crown and kawaii eyes. You cannot go wrong! I don’t know how big this is though, but I would like to think it’s a decent size.

  • A Silent Voice manga Vol. 1-7  – £8.99 each (link)

This is a manga I discovered through looking at the adverts in the back of Your Lie in April manga books. It’s about a deaf girl who starts at a new school and is bullied by one boy in the class and his friends. She leaves and years lately he’s being bullied himself for what he did to her. He bumps into her and learns how to say sorry in sign language. From there they become close and I think it’s a whole love thing. I love manga like this and when I heard that it had been made into an anime movie it made me happy! It’s out this month and me and Dane are going to try and see it at the cinema. I’ve linked the trailer above.

  • Disney Store Disney Animators’ Collection 101 Dalmatians Mug – £8.99 (link)

I love Disney mugs and even though I don’t need anymore (nor do I have the room for them!) I would still love to get more of these. I just like being able to have a nice collection in my cupboard, especially considering most of my Disney mugs are 101 Dalmatians related. This one is really nice and it looks huge! I like how Pongo and Perdy are the main characters on the mug with sketches of their puppies around the rest of it. I’ll definitely be having a look at this mug when I go into a Disney Store next.

  • Sword Art Online Progressive manga Vol. 5 – £9.99 (link) (OUT 21/3/17)

Another manga and a volume I’ve been waiting to have come out for about a year now! It won’t be out until the end of the month but it’ll be worth the wait, especially as I’ll pre order it when I get paid next week. I love Sword Art Online and I especially love the Progressive manga, which focuses around Asuna instead of Kirito. I just hope they don’t wait another year for the next volume to come out…

  • Pokemon Center Easter Pikachu Phone Case (Sadly no link right now and prices vary)

This is probably the main thing I actually really want (besides from manga!) on my wish list this month! The Pokemon Center phone cases are amazing and very sturdy for what they are. Plus how cute does the Pikachu look on it? I mean COME ON?! The only issue I am having with it at the moment is the price… I’ve found that it’s been a tad pricey on places like eBay. We’re saying between £30-£50 which is of course a joke! I love my Redbubble Mew case that Dane bought me and that only cost about £20. We shall see what happens basically….

  • Disney Store 101 Dalmatians Glazed Mug – £9.99 (link)

Finally we come to another 101 Dalmatians mug and one I have mentioned before on my blog. This one isn’t as nice at the other in my opinion but of course I still want it for the same reasons as the other. I would want to buy myself one of these mugs and one for Dane so that we sort of match. But even so these mugs with the glaze on the bottom are really sturdy from when I’ve seen them in store beforehand. You can’t go wrong with a sturdy mug! 😛

So that’s my wish list for this month! As I mentioned before I am still on my spending ban and don’t really intend to buy anything I don’t need. I have been a little naughty on and off this past month but meh. I’m not as bad as I was before so it’s not going all too badly. 😛

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

Until next time take care all and have a lovely weekend.

Happy Easter!

Just a little post today to wish everyone a lovely Easter!

Don’t eat too much chocolate and make sure to have a yummy Sunday roast.

I’ve been spending Easter snuggled up with my boyfriend in bed whilst I do uni work. We bought ourselves some chocolate eggs to indulge in and boy have they been yummy! Think we’ve eaten too much though.

As well as that I’ve just been thinking about some exciting posts I want to write on my blog in the future.

I’m so pleased to have two weeks off of uni for Easter. It means I get to have a break, as well as get some of my assignments started.

But enough of me going on, here are some cute Easter related pictures for you to enjoy.

Things I Love About Spring

Image taken from weheartit.com

It’s been spring officially for a month now and I always forget how much I love it until it comes around late March.

Thanks to plenty of early shifts at work, weekends spent out and about with my boyfriend, as well as my curtains being able to stay open for longer due to lighter nights, I’ve began to notice loads of things I love about spring, which I thought I would share with you this evening.

ALSO I realise this post is very LATE coming up on my blog today, but I’ve been rather tired since finishing work this afternoon. However now I’m wearing my new onesie (which I will be posting about next week!), watching Goodnight Mister Tom, texting my boyfriend, and having a cup of tea I’m ready to get this post written and posted on my blog.

So I hope you enjoy it, I know I’m going to enjoy writing it!

The sound of rain, especially light and heavy rain.

I just HAD to include a picture from Bambi here! Something we have been seeing the past few days is rain, and plenty of it. We were told we were going to be getting some lovely weather for Easter and whilst it hasn’t been so bad it’s just a bit rotten at the moment, which is a bit of a shame. This being said, I do rather like the sound of rain, both light and heavy especially. I’m one of these people where if the weather isn’t too cold outside whilst it’s raining, I’ll open the window so that I can listen to it whilst I do whatever I need to. It’s just a relaxing sound and before now I’ve listened to those hour-long videos on YouTube of where you listen to sound effects whilst trying to sleep. Some of my favourite rain related ones are the sound of rain whilst in a car and in a tent. As well as how lovely it sounds, it’s good for all the new spring plants and flowers that are growing through beautifully!

Still being able to drink hot chocolate throughout the day (especially the evenings!) due to it still being chilly.

I love hot chocolate and as I work in a coffee shop, I have hot chocolate on tap, however I want it, whenever I want it. I don’t drink it every shift I work as that would take away the treat of having a hot chocolate in the first place, but when I do have one, it’s yummy! I especially love mint hot chocolate and honeycomb hot chocolate. I treated myself to a naughty mint hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows, it was amazing!

Burning candles, although that is acceptable throughout the year.

I love candles, especially my Yankee Candles! I received a large Sweet Strawberry Yankee Candle at the start of the year for my birthday from my boyfriend and only since the start of this month have I been burning it. It’s lovely to pop on a candle and watch it burn into late into the night, there’s just something nicer about burning a candle in the spring, than there is in the winter and I don’t know why! My boyfriend shares my love for yummy candles, and he’s owned two apple scented ones since the start of the year, so whenever I go to his for the weekend he burns his yummy Apple candle by Lily Flame. Can’t go wrong with candles, no matter what season!

Cherry blossom trees.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always liked something about cherry blossom trees. I don’t know why but they’re just so beautiful and symbolise spring perfectly. Cherry blossoms only last until the end of spring, which is a real shame as they’re so gorgeous and add something bright and colourful to the season and especially to the UK. On my drive to and from work, as well as wherever I go really I drive/walk past loads of cherry blossom trees at the moment. Some are a light pink, some are a dark pink, but no matter what they’re all beautiful! My two apple trees sprout beautiful white blossoms every spring, which makes me happy and as we’re growing a cherry tree in the garden now, we’ll eventually have some gorgeous pink blossoms of our own. I intend to go out with my camera and get snap happy whilst the blossoms are around. Cherry blossom trees are my favourite trees!

Lighter, thus later evenings.

A year ago I would have thrived off of this due to being able to go to the pub any night of the week (especially the weekend) and due to it not getting dark until nearly 10pm I’d be able to sit outside in the beer garden with people getting drunk and laughing my head off… Although I still want to occasionally go out and enjoy the lighter evenings in a beer garden with my friends, I don’t wish to get drunk, just merry. As well as that this past year has taught me that there is more to life than going out every weekend to get drunk. I’m 24 now and I’m not getting any younger, I sound rather soppy but I’m getting to that time in my life where I would like to start settling down, getting what I want from life and making the most of it. Now instead of going out every weekend to get drunk, I spend it with my boyfriend, and sometimes even our friends where we’ll go out somewhere nice for the day and in the evening too. With the weather picking up a little and the later evenings, it means late walks and merry pub outings will be occurring. As well as all those things I love the view from my window from the late afternoon until it finally gets dark, it’s just gorgeous and I can’t really put into words how much I love it.

SO those were all the things I love about spring! Well, the ones worth mentioning anyway! As well as all those I also enjoy new baby animals being born, Easter, being able to wear my spring clothing, and finally the joys of pollen soon taking its toll on my nose, throat and eyes (I hate having hay fever)!

So, what do you love about spring? Let me know in the comments!

I’ve really enjoyed writing this post and sadly it is a day late, but better late than never eh?

Well I’m off to write some more blog posts up, I’ve got a long night ahead of me. 😉

Until next time all, take care and hope you’re excited for the weekend!

Happy Easter!

Image taken from weheartit.com, but I know originally it’s from pusheen.com

This is just a quick post from me to wish all my readers a happy Easter, no matter where you’re from or how often you read my blog. ^_^

I’ve had a lovely relaxing day with my boyfriend, where we pretty much stayed in bed all day playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf all day, played with some Japanese DIY sweets we bought from Cybercandy yesterday, and ate cold leftover macaroni cheese that I cooked for us last night for lunch.

It’s not the traditional way to spend Easter with chocolate eggs and bunnies, crappy films on the TV with family and a huge roast dinner, but we like being different!

Image taken from weheartit.com

I do have a chocolate bunny in my fridge waiting to be devoured, but I’m waiting until I have a real chocolate craving… Which will probably be tomorrow after work.

Other than that I’ve had a lovely day and I wanted to wish everyone else a lovely day too.

I’ll be trying to write some posts for next week, I have some ideas I want to get written down and once again I apologise for being so quiet lately. It makes me sad that I don’t write as much as I used to. 😦

But let’s not get a downer started!

Now my boyfriend has gone home, I’m off to play more Animal Crossing: New Leaf, watch a movie and later on cook myself some noodles.

Until next time, take care and have a lovely Easter!
