February Wish List 17

I’m still on a “spending ban” so I don’t actually know why I’m making this post… 😛 I’m not going to lie, my wish list posts are probably my favourite to write as I like to share some awesome new stuff that I want to add to my home, as well as to my lipstick and geeky collections.

So sod the spending ban! I’ll continue to do these posts until I don’t want to write them anymore! There won’t be anything too special on the list this month however… Just stuff I want to buy and cannot. Le sigh.

  • ASOS Reclaimed Vintage Black Sabbath Long Sleeve Top – £35.00 (link)

I recently discovered this piece thanks to Zoe London as she bought it herself and was talking about it in a video. To be honest though a lot of fashion YouTuber’s have bought this piece lately and it’s just made me want to get it myself more and more. Sadly it is out of stock at the moment… I’m hoping it’ll come back in stock in my size so I can erm… Maybe order one… ONLY A MAYBE CALM YO’ TITS!

  • Good Smile Company Deadpool Nendoroid – £42.99 (link)

As regular readers will know me and Dane love and collect Nendoroid’s and from the day it was announced we knew we would be getting the Deadpool one. I mean look how cute he is! We were planning on buying him this month ready for what we thought was his release date at the end of the month. Sadly that isn’t until next month… We can still pre-order him though as we intending on getting him as a Valentine’s treat to ourselves. 😛 What an excuse eh???

  • Disturbia Kiss My Ass Acid Wash Shorts – WAS £29.95 – NOW £22.95 (link)

I’ve wanted these jeans for quite a while now after I found someone selling them on Depop. I didn’t actually know they were still available to buy from the actual store until recently when I decided to check out their sales. I would love a new pair of denim shorts as I haven’t bought myself a new pair for quite some time now. I’d pair them up with geeky t-shirts and tuck them in. I doubt I’ll get these due to spending ban, but they’ll stay on my wish list for as long as possible.

  • Ray Ban Glasses – £98.00 (link)

I went for an eye test the weekend just gone after about two years of going without one and sadly my eyes have worsened, which means that I need to get a new set of lenses… Probably frames too it depends. I looked for ages in the opticians that I went into for a new pair and the one Ray Ban pair I liked were bloody expensive and the second pair I liked were nice but seemed really cheap. I had a mooch online and found Glasses Direct who sell designer frames at really good prices! They also sort out your lenses for you too, including thinning them down, which is what mine will need doing to them… Due to the blindness and all. I’ll hopefully get some soon but we shall see! I do really like my current frames so I don’t know why I should change them… A lot of people don’t want to put new lenses into them though which is annoying!

  • Nintendo 3DS Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World – £34.99 (link)

If there’s a Nintendo character that I really like (apart from Pokemon of course…) it’s definitely Yoshi! He’s just so damn cute and adorable and I just wish he was real. I especially love the little woolly Yoshi that was realised to coincide with the wii U version of the game a few years ago and really wanted to get one myself to put in my bedroom at the time. NOW the 3DS is finally getting its own version of this game which is really exciting! I gave the demo a go recently and really did enjoy playing it, so much so I’d love to pick it up today if possible as that’s when it comes out! 😛

  • Pusheen Colouring Book – £9.99 (link)

I’ve been after this colouring book FOR AGGGGGES as I love Pusheen so much! I guess I just want something I can faff about with and just relax with instead of playing games or reading, as sometimes I’m not always in the mood to do either of those. This being said, surely this colouring book with mostly consist of grey? 😛

So that was my wish list for February! Although I’m on a spending ban there are probably a couple of things off of the list that I’ll end up buying due to needing them (glasses), Valentine’s Day gift (Deadpool Nendoroid) and because I fancy a new game (YOSHIIIII!) but we shall see… We shall see.

What are on your wish lists for the month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

What I Got For My 27th Birthday

 photo Photo 09-01-2017 11 03 40 am_zpsgfifd6yd.jpg

I can’t believe I hadn’t yet thought about doing this post… Until now! Whilst chilling on the sofa and enjoying a well deserved Sunday lazy day I thought, “Hey! I never wrote a post about what I got for my birthday!” and I surprised myself. I mean I wrote a wish list so why not add a post about what I actually got?

Well better late than never… It has been over a week though since I turned 27… Oh dear. Maybe with age I am forgetting? 😛

These presents above are a mixture of gifts I received from Dane and his parents.

 photo Photo 06-01-2017 8 01 43 am_zps6wvhsgxq.jpg

My favourite gift from his parents was this beautiful fox figure for the garden. I’ve been after something like this for quite some time now but hadn’t yet found anything I wanted and if I did it was shockingly priced (those are treats for in the summer when we do up the garden!) so I was really happy to get this. The detailing is gorgeous and it’s now sat outside by the back door. I hope we get some foxes in our garden when the weather improves… I love them so much!

 photo Photo 06-01-2017 8 01 40 am_zpsf8yg4oly.jpg

Dane’s parents bought me some lovely gifts but I was especially happy to see four volumes of Your Lie in April manga inside of one of the gifts (which was actually on my wish list!). Apparently I was meant to receive the Azumanga Daioh manga instead but I already owned this manga so Dane is going to send that book back to Amazon. Oops. 😛 With the manga was an iPad holder from IKEA and a can of red spray paint. I had said how Dane’s moms was really nice but how I would want one in red. So that’s why I had a red can of spray paint. I’m going to definitely be spraying it when we have a nice day!

Then we have the gifts that Dane bought for me! Above as you can see there are four volumes of Your Lie in April BUT there is also the box on the far right which is the Blu-ray for the anime series of Your Lie in April. I’m so happy to have it as the art for the box is beautiful and it’s limited edition which makes me even happier!

 photo Photo 06-01-2017 8 01 36 am_zpsdlt4n5gp.jpg

As well as getting Your Lie in April manga I also got the first two volumes of Paradise Kiss manga! AHH! I love Nana which is written and illustrated by Ai Yazawa who is also the person behind Paradise Kiss. I’ve watched a little bit of the manga and I really enjoyed it, so I know I’m going to love the manga just as much. Sadly like Nana they’re not easy to find and when you DO find them they aren’t exactly cheap… We shall see what the future holds in terms of picking the rest of the manga up as there are five volumes in total so I only have three more to pick up.

My final present from Dane (that I got on the day anyway…) and my main one is this gorgeous Frozen Elsa Nendoroid! I had shown Dane her ages ago as she was on sale on a website we buy Japanese items from and bless him he went and ordered her. I had a feeling I was going to get a Nendoroid for my birthday but I didn’t think it would be Elsa! I’m not one of these obsessed Frozen fans but as soon as she was announced years ago I KNEW I had to have her. She’s gorgeous and so beautiful to look at and I know I’ll need to get Anna soon to go with her. I swear I need to do a collection post about mine and Dane’s Nendoroid’s soon as we have twenty now and counting. 😛

For my birthday in the evening we went out for a meal for both mine and my moms birthday as hers is the day after mine! We went to Frankie & Benny’s and had a lovely meal, drinks and had a right laugh! It’s a shame we didn’t get to do much else. The next day however me and Dane went to Peak Wildlife Park which was amazing! However we left pretty late so didn’t get to spend all day at the park like we wanted to. We intend to go back in the spring.

But on with more gifts! My mom didn’t buy me anything and instead gave me some money whilst my dad and brother both bought me some charms for my Thomas Sabo bracelet, which I got for Christmas from my mom (which you can read about here).

 photo Photo 09-01-2017 8 26 05 pm_zpslbpokw6a.jpg

They both bought me some lovely charms and ones I had set my eyes on on Christmas Day when I was seeing what charms I could get in the future! My brother bought me both the robin and the lucky cat (which I recently found out is called a maneki-neko!) and they’re both so eye catching and different. The maneki-neko has definitely had loads of compliments and questions as to what it is.

Then on a daughter and dad day at the start of the week my dad bought me the fox charm which I’d hoped he would be able to get me. He also offered to buy me another charm too but sadly I didn’t see anything I was after in particular so we left it for another time.

I’m really loving how my Thomas Sabo bracelet is turning out! I’ll be writing up a wish list post for future charms in the next week or two.

This was one of my belated birthday presents from Dane, which he was intending on keeping a secret but wasn’t 100% sure if I wanted it still. I’ve been waiting for this game to come out for almost ten years and finally in late 2016 it came out! However whilst I was going to pre-order it and have it straight away Dane put me off due to some reviews he had heard about which were bashing the game and putting it down. This being said there were more positive reviews than negative and he bought it for me when it went down in price. Sadly due to so many people buying it we had to wait a couple of weeks for it to come out. It has been totally worth it though! We’ve been playing it together since we got it last week and I love it.

 photo Photo 09-01-2017 9 43 41 pm_zpsx0yag4ru.jpg

This is one of the final presents I got… I say got but I wasn’t gifted it. My aunt gave me some money for my birthday so I decided to treat myself to a new water bottle with the money. This is from The Disney Store and as you can see it’s a Baymax water bottle. It’s so amazing and I love it so much! I mostly use it for work as I like to keep hydrated during my shifts. It’s screw cap and fits a good amount of water in. I try to drink at least two of these a shift (I work 8 hours a day btw…) which I think is a pretty good goal! You can also pop lemons into this too but as of late I haven’t bothered with drinking lemon water. It’s something I’ll start doing again very soon.

So those were my presents I got (or bought with money…) for my birthday this year! I loved all my presents and I can’t say that I have a favourite… Although I do love how my Thomas Sabo bracelet is turning out! I loved everything though to be honest. I loved getting more manga to read, a fox figure for my garden, money and geeky things!

I just want to thank not just my family and friends for helping me have a lovely birthday this year, but mostly Dane for always being there for me. I’m so excited to start 2017 in our home and I’m even more excited for all the adventures we’re going to have this year.

How are all my readers doing? I miss your faces! Leave me some love down below or over at my Twitter (@maybeecoffee)/

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

July ’16 Wish List

Oh hello July, can you please bring us some more lovely weather instead of all this vile rain!? Yes the weather has mostly been crap in June, but there was also some gorgeous weather too! Which I think a lot of people are forgetting about.

But enough about the weather, it’s now July and you know what that means? It’s time for a new wish list! This one wasn’t exactly straight forward to put together but I managed it in the end, and the majority of the items on said list are hella KAWAII!

 photo July 2016 Wish List_zpstet0lztf.jpg

  • Disney Pocahontas Meeko Pop! Vinyl – £10.99 (link)

I’ve expressed on my blog before how I’m not a huge fan of Pop! Vinyl figures, and would much prefer to spend quite a bit more money on Nendoroid’s. However, there are just some characters that Good Smile Company won’t bring out, and there are just some Pop! Vinyl figures I just cannot say no to. This Meeko one is so cute, and who can say that it isn’t, huh? I would want the Pocahontas one to go with Meeko too, eventually. May as well get the set.

  • H&M Porcelain Mug – £3.99 (link)

Due to the house I am constantly looking at home related things these days, mostly because I still have a lot of stuff to buy, but also because it’s kind of better than looking at clothes. I think this must be something that happens when you move out… Anyway! H&M have this cute matching cat set, but you have to buy them separate however. I probably have enough mugs bought for now, but I rather like the look of this one too! It’s not too in your face either, as the cats face is inside the cup itself, with some little cat ears on the outside. Very cute!

  • Jeffree Star  Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in shade Rose Matter – $18.00 (or £14.00 from Cocktail Cosmetics when in stock) (link)

I love the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks, FACT PEOPLE! I want all of the shades someday, but for now my collection has had to be told on hold due to the house. However, that doesn’t stop me from wishing after shades, especially Rose Matter, one of his newest shades. It’s a coral shade, which I love! However, I don’t really know if it suits my yellow skin tone… I’ll wait until I’m next in Cocktail Cosmetics Sutton Coldfield store to check this shade out.

  • Bee and PuppyCat Comic Book Vol. 3 – £10.96 (link)

I LOVE Bee and PuppyCat and it has fast turned into my favourite cartoon/comic book this year. Volume 3 isn’t due to come out until December, which sucks as it seems like so far away, but it’ll be well worth the wait! I have volumes 1 and 2 and have enjoyed them both a lot, so I already can’t wait for the third installment.

  • Deadpool Badge Pack – £1.99 (link)

I recently started using my backpack again, and as I used to collect badges when I used it beforehand, I thought I would start that little hobby up again. Now as I love Deadpool, I definitely need to add a Deadpool badge or two to my bag! I currently have some South Park, Adventure Time, and Kurt Cobain badges at the moment.

  • Disney Store Finding Dory Sea Otter Soft Toy – £12.95 (link)

I saw this little cutie when I was down in London visiting my friend Sophi, and I was going to buy him but I left it. I love otters, so to have a cute little otter plushie would make me really happy. BUT it isn’t a necessity, just something I am lusting after. Maybe if it ever goes into the Disney Store sale.

  • H&M Small Bowl – £3.99 (link)

The bowl is just like the cup, with a cats face inside and cute ears around the edge. Unlike the cup I would buy two of these, one for me and one for Dane, or guests. They’re just simple but really cute, something nice to perk you up in the morning to have cornflakes in before work.

  • Belle Muerte Hex Black As Your Soul Bath Bomb – £3.00 (link)

What hurts the most about this item is I want to buy one, but it is constantly sold out! I like how cheap it is mind! They have all sorts of variations, from this black one, to blood red, green, purple, etc. I know I’ve never been a fan of any bath bombs apart from Lush, but that won’t stop me from one day trying this one. Quite frankly I cannot wait!

  • H&M Plate With A Print – £3.99 (link)

Again, like the cup and bowl this is similar apart from the plate doesn’t have any little eats on it. This again will be nice for breakfast, as well as for lunch. I’d buy two of these to go with the bowls, for myself and Dane, or for a guest.

So that was my wish list for July! I know there isn’t anything super special on there, but to be honest since buying the house, I have a feeling my life might be a little boring. BUT every cloud has a silver lining, because I hope to do more house/home related posts from now on!

What items are on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you have a great week!

Wish List Wednesday – Deadpool (Guest Post)

Hey guys! Dane here! Nat is letting me loose on her blog again to talk to you about the regenerat-ing degenerate, Deadpool.
Today the merc’ with a mouth arrives on the silver screen. It has been an incredibly long time coming; both Nat and I have been incredibly excited since its announcement over a year ago. Recently we have seen everyone go crazy for the ‘pool, it is everywhere and to me that is a very good thing for fans of the character. You can’t be anywhere and not see an advert on a bus or on social media. Personally, it is absolutely brilliant. The best thing they are doing with the movie is the “touching yourself” campaign for men and women, where Deadpool instructs you to check yourself for lumps and bumps and not even in a way that makes you think it’s an awful attempt to promote the movie.
Do I need to give you a background of the character? Just watch this video.

With the upcoming movie Nat has tasked me with providing you all with a few possible gift ideas that I would personally like and for that person who loves a bit of Deadpool. You could gift these for someone for Valentine’s Day, or even just as a general pay day treat for yourself. The possibilities are endless!

deadpool20wish20list_zpsmt36m9hv

Well the best place to start for a comic book character is obviously the comics. You can start with the Deadpool Classics as I believe that’s where he is first introduced. I’ve never been a big fan of comics as I never liked the art style of the older comics. I started with the Deadpool Complete collections which are a bit newer and I think are the ones which really show Deadpool as we all know it. I also have the Deadpool kills series, Night of the Living Deadpool and Return of the Living Deadpool. All good stories in my opinion, I have found myself reading through the collections as soon as I buy them. I have just enjoyed them that much. The weird and sometimes hysterically dark adventures have kept me invested with this character and it just makes me that much more excited to see him portrayed on the silver screen. I would like the Cable and Deadpool series next (and eventually all Deadpool related media) but I think the next one I’m going to buy will be the next volume of the Complete Collection and Deadpool Vs. Thanos as starting a new series would just confuse my little brain.

  • 12 Inch Figure – £259.99 (link)

Well who wouldn’t want this? Doesn’t it just look majestic? Yes it does, is exactly what your answer should be. Never mind the price, just means its proper quality. Am I right? 😀
For something a little more feasible and less stressful on the wallet. Imagine this bad boy sitting on your shelf/in your display cabinet. I want it. I want all the expensive figures at some point. Including the Star Wars Stormtrooper ones and there’s this Attack on Titan figure (link here) that would mortally wound my bank account. If you have the £300 to spare it would make an excellent addition to anyone’s collection.

  • Pop! Vinyl Deadpool Chimichanga Truck – £22.99 (link)

This I could live with and not feel like my bank account hates me. I have said before in other posts my uneasiness with Pop! Vinyl figures but I think this one would be pretty cool to have. It has the figure with Deadpool’s Chimichanga Truck. What is not like about that?

  • Clothing

For something to wear out there’s plenty of things out there, be it official or not there’s some decent quality stuff. Just Google “Deadpool clothing” and you will find an abundance of items but if you want to be saved that arduous journey of pressing Ctrl+T and typing that short sentence here’s a few items.

  • Varsity Jacket – £29.99 (link)

I love my varsity clothing, I have enough myself. My snowboard jacket is varsity, I have a Black Mesa (Half Life) varsity and a few other jackets to go along with them. For me the colour isn’t my thing as it’s too in your face but it still looks pretty cool. Natalee talked about this in her February wish list (link here) and I think she likes this item more so than me.

  • T-Shirts – starting from £14.99-£15.99 (link, and link)

For something a bit more subtle you can go for these t-shirts. I can see myself wearing these to show my support for the ‘pool.

  • Lego Keyring – Various prices on eBay, just search for “Lego Deadpool keyring/keychain”

This one is quite the unique one. Nat actually bought us one each as a little Valentine’s Day present, and they are pretty darn awesome. Merging the Lego and Marvel universes even further by this unofficial Lego figure. I can’t really see Lego ever bringing out this character officially as he is known to be aimed at a more mature audience, then again he has had more toned down appearances in other media including Ultimate Spiderman. So there could be a chance, but in the mean time I am happy to settle with this. His swords even detach and can be held! Whoever made this is pretty skilled, mega props to them!

  • Game (available on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4) – starting from £26.59-£28.00 (link)

I know that when it was originally released it wasn’t the best game in the world and according to newer reviews it still isn’t. It has been released for newer consoles and includes some of the up-dates and DLC bundled with it. I have watched Lets Players run through this game and it looks entertaining but the game play just seems… Bleh. I am also conflicted by the way Deadpool is portrayed. From memory he’s a bit wackier than I would like. Which yes Deadpool is crazy and can be quirky, but he’s not THAT bad. The game seemed to remind me of the Animaniacs and I just think that’s a bit too much for his character. He has some dark moments in the comics; he’s desperate to die, he has an intimate relationship with the Marvel personification of death (who is female) and he just wants to be seen as a good guy really. I haven’t actually played the game (yet) so my re-view could be somewhat unfair and my assumptions and prejudices could be preventing me from being exposed to great Deadpool media. For what it is, a cash grab by Activision to jump on the movie hype, it is a tad expensive and I will be waiting for a price drop or sale to happen before genuinely going to buy it.

So there it is a few ideas for the Deadpool lovers out there. I know I will be getting a few of these.

Both Nat and I are excited to see the film in a few hours, are you? Have you seen anything here that you think you would like to buy for yourself, if not someone else? Have you got any awesome Deadpool items you want to share with us? Feel let us know, and feel free to comment below and tell us what you think! Ciao! 😀

Thanks again to Dane for being on my blog! I love when he writes for me, as like Deadpool he is just so wacky, and hilarious. 😛

We’re off to go watch Deadpool now anyhoo, I hope you are too!

Until next time all, take care.
