September Wish List ’17

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

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

But no more chit chat, wish list time! 😀

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

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

  • Primark Pusheen Sweatshirt.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Currently #7

Woohoo we are well into June now and I can only put the month going by so quickly down to the house! Me and Dane have been really hard at work with the house, which sadly means my blog has been rather neglected lately… I do apologise for that, but I hope my regular readers will understand my reasons why.

However I have just started back at work, so whilst a part of me doesn’t have ANY time now (because of still working on the house) I do have a more time on my hands to get a couple of posts written and scheduled a couple of days a week.

So I thought I would do a not home related post, and instead do a currently one instead, as I haven’t done one for a while.

Watching – I haven’t really had much time to watch a whole lot due to the house, but at times I have managed to catch up on my Netflix and 4OD in the mornings and evenings.

I’ve found myself watching a lot of Only Fools and Horses, which has surprised me to say the least. I do really enjoy the show, but sadly Netflix only has two series on, and a series with all the specials. I want all the series damn you! I was contemplating buying all the series on DVD to just binge watch when we move into the house… But we shall see.

I’ve also been watching a lot of 24 Hours in Police Custody, as I hadn’t realised there was a new series out until my friend Gabriella told me about one episode she had watched. I love TV shows like this, and seeing bad people go daaaawn (down).

A new TV series I’ve been watched recently is The Preacher, which I think is exclusive to Amazon Prime. It’s based off a comic book, and let me tell you it is amazing! Dane told me about it due to Joseph Gilgun playing a main role and thought I might want to watch it. I love Joseph Gilgun, he’s such a talented actor, and definitely one of my favourites. If you aren’t sure who he is, he plays Woody in This Is England, and Rudy in Misfits. He’s really funny in The Preacher as he plays a vampire. I would recommend it to everyone to check out. It’s basically about a preacher… What more can I say?

Reading – I’m naughty… I haven’t really been reading because I’ve not had any time TO read anything. The only thing I’ve really been reading lately are home magazines (can you tell I’ve just bought my first home? It’s so bloody obvious!) just to gain some ideas for the house, both decorating and interior design related. I’m currently flicking through the latest edition of Style at Home which is my favourite one to pick up. It’s cheap at £1.99 and there are loads of great ideas in there from both the writers of the magazine, to average people like you and me, which is what I like about it the most. I think it’s a great magazine to pick up for new home owners like myself, or even if you’re renting and want to get some ideas of how to spruce your place up a bit.

Listening – At this moment in time I’m listening to Nirvana’s first album Nevermind, and it is pretty much all I have listened to the past fortnight. Oh dear… I am obsessed with it to say the least and have especially been playing it whilst decorating the house. Don’t know if Dane or my dad approved, but it is tough! I have always liked Nirvana since a young age when my brother first showed me some of their songs, but I never really listened to their albums until recently. Why? I honestly don’t know! I’m terrible when it comes to music, I listen to bands who no longer exist, or don’t make any more music. I never listen to newer bands. I think it’s because all the newer music is so shockingly shit these days. I don’t know…

As well as Nirvana, I’ve also been listening to a lot of Nightcore. I really wish I wasn’t, because it’s not like I can pay to buy an album. All of their music is on YouTube, which is a pain to download! I’ll admit when I’m moved into the house and settled, I’ll be downloading enough Nightcore songs to make at last two albums, if not three! I find it the most relaxing music to listen to whilst traveling to work, as well as when I’m in work on my break.

Eating – I’ve had chip shop so much whilst me and Dane have been decorating the house. I also forgot how gross Pot Noodle are, I only ate one and decided that one was enough! I’ve also discovered that Tesco sandwiches are amazing, and having a Tesco Express down the road from my house is lethal. So yeah, that’s mostly what food me and Dane have been living off of the past couple of works whilst we’ve been working on the house. I am craving some proper home cooked food.

Wearing – I have legit lived in my old skinny jeans, Fuerteventura hippy pants, old baggy tops, and my Evanescence hoodie for the past two weeks. I mean, what is the point in dressing up when all I’ve going to be doing is painting the house, and probably getting more on me than on the walls? Okay that last part was a joke. But anyway!

I actually forgot how much I loved my Evanescence hoodie until I got it out of the back of my wardrobe recently. I bought it at the first gig of theirs I went to back in 2011 and I remember only paying £5.00 for it because the guy selling them wanted to get rid of them before the end of the night. I ended up buying an XL, which I quickly regretted as at the time I was into wearing all my skinny fit clothing. However I’m not back to wearing baggy clothing and this suits me down to the ground. I’ll probably wear it loads for work now, alongside my new raincoat, which I will be talking about very soon!.

Wanting – The one thing I REALLY want right now is for my house to be done, so that me and Dane can move in. At this moment in time we’re probably halfway to finishing it. Currently the living room is done, and the kitchen will be in just a few days. Me and my dad plan to get the bedrooms done in the next couple of days as well. I guess it just sucks with me being back at work in just a few days too. We’re saying end of June, start of July we’ll be moved in!

I also want to win the lottery so I can pay off the mortgage, and go on a massive IKEA shop and not cry at the bill afterwards. Other than that I actually don’t want much, if anything just stuff to do with my house.

So that was my currently list for May/June, although mostly June to be honest due to the whole house palaver. Again I apologise for being quiet on my blog lately, the house has taken up a lot of my time, and sadly my house is more important. It’ll all be worth it though in the end!

I guess I just want to say thank you to my readers for sticking around with me, and even hello to some new ones! I’ll be back to my usual schedule very soon.

What is on your currently list? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and have a lovely weekend!

October Wish List

Wow hello October! It’s not officially autumn and thus my favourite time of year! I’ve also officially been at university for two weeks now and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t enjoying it. However due to going to work and to university day after day, one after the other I haven’t really thought about buying myself anything and if I have it has been for university. However with some thought I finally put together this wish list and the majority of it is things I would like for university, as well as things I can benefit and use in my own time too. Surprisingly there aren’t many autumn items here but I’ve been so busy with university to even look at stuff to buy or lust over.

So whilst the list is small, it’s all things I want and well, sorta need.

 

  •  Yankee Candle Ghostly Treats Candle.

I love Yankee Candle’s and I also love Halloween so whenever they’ve brought out their Halloween range I have usually always been rather disappointed, purely for the fact that I’m not a fan of Witches Brew and whilst Candy Corn smells nice, it isn’t something I would buy. HOWEVER this year Yankee Candle have brought out a new scent to join their Halloween collection, Ghostly Treats. Basically it is the same scent as Fireside Treats but in this gorgeous Halloween themed jar. I can see me buying it as soon as I use up all my none Yankee Candles, as from now on the only candles I’ll be buying is Yankee Candles, as well as trying a Flamingo Candle.

  • Fox T-Shirt by Element.

I love shopping in Two Seasons, they have such great skate, surf and snow clothing and I always go and check them out when I’m near one of their stores. They recently gave out a 20% off code to use in store, so my boyfriend and I headed to the Coventry store to check out what we could pick up. Alas nothing really took our fancy and we ended up leaving our discount codes unused. I did see one thing I thought about picking up but I left it, it was a gorgeous clutch bag by Element with the same fox print on the front as this t-shirt, but at £30 I couldn’t justify it. Only a few nights ago did I pop onto Two Seasons website to check out what nice clothing they had out for autumn and winter this year when I stumbled across this t-shirt. I love foxes and I’m especially a sucker for any clothing with foxes on! I can see me picking this up for university, as well as for my holiday in the New Year as it would look amazing with a pair of baggy jeans here, and a pair of denim shorts abroad.

  • Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Lacquer in Breathtaking Apricot.

After writing a post (link here) in September about how much I love the Maybelline Color Elixir’s I decided that I wanted some more shades and I have two in mind from over the pond that I need in my life. One is Vision In Violet and another is this one, Breathtaking Apricot. These are only available from America and as regular readers may know about me is that if I want something, I go to eBay for it and on this occasion I was lucky. For less than £10.00 I can pick up both shades, yes BOTH shades and also from a UK seller, not bad eh? I love these lip lacquers and they’ve actually replaced my MAC lipsticks because they’re so quick to apply, last ages and make my lips feel and look moisturised and gorgeous. These have especially proven great for university as it means I don’t have to worry about my lipstick feathering or fading away and looking weird. I’ve of course had a look at swatches of this shade online and it’s definitely one I have wanted from day one of the Maybelline Color Elixir’s being for the past year, so I can see me picking it up very soon, especially for my holiday in the New Year.

  • Adventure Time Jake’s In Here Hoodie.

I’ve mentioned this hoodie on a wish list post before (link here) and it’s found its place on a wish list again as I just want it that much! I want this for 2 reasons, 1. Because it looks amazing and 2. Because with university I am currently living in one hoodie, so I am in need of another one now! The hoodie is just super cute and it looks really warm and good quality for the money. I’m hoping to pick one up on my week off from university.

  • Yankee Candle Moon Pie Swirls Candles – Set of 2.

Oh how I love QVC, especially when they sell Yankee Candles. Yes another Yankee Candle, but I don’t care it’s autumn and that only means one thing, CANDLES and plenty of them! This is a special edition on for grabs from QVC, especially considering that this candle isn’t available in the UK, only in America, plus the fact QVC are giving them away makes me laugh. For £25.00 you’re getting two medium candles which would usually cost nearly £10 more if you were to buy them separately. The Moon Pie swirl candle is said to be a mixture of both Yankee Candles Whoopie Pie and Buttercream candles, which I can tell you both smell delicious! I know if I were to buy this set then I would keep one and give my boyfriend the other, because I’m a nice girlfriend! 😉

  • Shopaholic To The Stars by Sophie Kinsella.

I LOVE the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella and I have fond memories of university because of it. I started to read it in my first year and went on to finish it just as I left university. It was an enjoyable series and one that I have waiting in anticipation for to continue after the last book, which may I add came out four years ago! I don’t care if they hardback copy costs £9.00, as soon as I spot it in the shops, I’ll be picking it up and starting to read after I finish my current book (An Abundance Of Katherine’s by John Green).

So that was my wish list! My boyfriend suggested that I try and do a university wish list, but considering that I’ve already bought all my stationary and such I wasn’t really able to do such a thing, but with the t-shirt and hoodie I would like to think this is included in what I would like/need for university.

What do you have on your wish list this month? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’ve had a great week.
