September Wish List ’20

We’ve been into September almost a week now and I am feeling autumnal and excited for Halloween, Bonfire Night and especially everything else this season brings.

September so far hasn’t been too bad and I’m really loving how each day you can see summer begin to fade and autumn start to show it’s true colours… Aka orange, brown and yellow. πŸ˜›

In regards to my September wish list, I toyed with having this up either this weekend or next. I felt it would be too long for a post if I didn’t have it up until next weekend, so here we are… Two posts in one week! πŸ˜€ Don’t think it’s going to become a habit though… It’s not. πŸ˜›

I don’t really have much to talk about sadly as it feels like it hasn’t been too long yet between my two monthly posts… I’m just super excited for autumn and Halloween at the moment, so please excuse how spooky this months favourites are. πŸ˜› I even made the background orange for autumn… πŸ˜› I hope it isn’t too bright for you guys. xD

  • LittlestSpookShop Halloween Hijinkery Print (link)

Recently I discovered Littlest Spook Shop through YouTuber SimplySpooky and I have fallen in love with their ghost designs. I honestly want them all, but sadly I don’t have a clue where I would keep them in my house. I also have to add the fact Dane isn’t a massive fan of them… Purely because they’re ghost and gothic/Halloween looking. There is one design I may pick up in the future to keep by my side of the bed which is the Always Cosy Club design. It’s definitely me and it’s a print Dane likes too. However, the print I like the most from their Etsy store at the moment is the Halloween Hijinkery print. It shouts Halloween and the little ghosts are absolutely adorable! I think if I was to pick up this print I’d want to stick it up on my plushie cabinet. πŸ™‚

  • BeaconCandlesUK PokΓ©mon Lavender Town inspired Scented Candle (link)

Everyone knows I’m a massive fan of candles and Pokemon, so when I heard of a UK seller merging the two together, I had to check it out. Lavender Town is one of my favourite places in the original Gen 1 Pokemon games and I think it’s obvious why. The scent of this candle is kind of obvious with lavender, vanilla and cedarwood. It sounds so lovely, especially for cold evenings. Cubone is also one of my favourite Pokemon, so for there to be a Cubone skull and crossbones on the top of this candle, is morbid but cool at the same time. This isn’t something I’ll pick up anytime soon as I have LOADS of amazing wax tarts from CushtyCo to burn, as well as some leftover Yankee Candle jars. This is definitely the kind of thing I will ask for when Christmas and my birthday is around.

  • UNIQLO Lady and The Tramp T-Shirt (link)

Regular readers (and friends) of my blog will know I’m a MASSIVE Lady and the Tramp fan and have been since I was old enough to watch Disney and understand it. I knew UNIQLO were releasing a Disney collection soon, so I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for the collection to launch. I don’t 100% know when this came out, but I rather like it. It’s simple, not in your face with the design and it’s pink… A colour I don’t own much of in my wardrobe. I love the design across the chest as the black and white design fits perfect against the pink. It’s the classic scenes from Lady and the Tramp when the two are having the spaghetti meatballs. I’ve never bought a UNIQLO item before and have always wanted to. Maybe this will be the first of many pieces? I’d rock this tucked into a skirt or mom jeans. πŸ™‚

  • Quirkory Lunar Plushie Spookies Enamel Pins – Tab and A-ghostin (link)

Heads up, this is a pre-order item at the moment and I made sure to pre-order my goodies as soon as this went live on Quirkory’s Etsy store! As regular readers will know, I LOVE Quirkory and they’re by far my favourite independent store out there (make sure to check out my two posts about their enamel pins here – Eeveelutions and Animal Crossing) and I’ll always support them the best I can. So, when they redesigned their Lunar Spookies enamel pins in a cuter plushie form, I knew I had to pick up a couple. I went for Tab the bat and A-ghostin the ghost. They’re so plushie, kawaii and right up my street! I honestly cannot wait for these to arrive for Halloween and autumn. I already know I’m going to display all my Halloween pins throughout October.

  • Black Milk Clothing Ghosties Longline Evil Tee Dress (link)

I have been a fan of Black Milk Clothing since 2014 and I’ve never looked back. I recently made a MASSIVE order from their Pokemon collaboration in July and I have zero regrets… Hint hint I’ll be talking about the pieces I bought this month. πŸ˜› However, Black Milk have now announced and shown sneak peaks of their Halloween collection and I’ve seen one piece that I really do want in my collection. The Ghosties dress is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE! The little ghosties all over it are so cute but I feel like this dress isn’t too in your face in regards to the spooky, Halloween design. I really don’t need to be buying Black Milk pieces again so close to the Pokemon ones, but come Monday night when this goes up in the store… I may just get it. πŸ˜›

So there we have it guys, this months wish list! I’m actually trying to watch my spending again, as I have some stuff to do on the house, as well as Christmas being here before we know it!

I don’t know why I’m soooo excited for Halloween this year, but I’ve been itching to go to Homesense and/or TK Maxx to look at all the Halloween goodies and how me and Dane can decorate the house this year. I actually think it’s due to being in the house so much that is giving me that “decorating” itch. πŸ˜›

What items do you guys have on your wish lists? Do you like what I added to mine? Make sure to let me know in the comments below.

Until next time, take care, stay safe and I hope you all have a great weekend!

Ohayou Clothing! Pin Badge Collection – Part 1

You know when I say, “This is a blog post I’ve been meaning to do for a while!” on some of my posts? Well I usually mean a couple of weeks… However this time I mean months. I’ve been meaning to write this post FOR MONTHS.

Now in this circumstance I have been meaning to talk about Ohayou Clothing! in general for YEARS now and I honestly mean that! It’s taken me so long to write about this brand and Chrissy the amazing owner because I’ve wanted to make sure what I write and post about her is exactly spot on and be perfect.

I have finally decided exactly how I want to talk about Ohayou Clothing! on my blog and I am so bloody excited to be honest with you! I’ve been working on this blog post mentally for months now, since the Eeveelution Kickstarter launched in March.

Instead of talking about any of the clothing I own by Ohayou Clothing!, I thought I would start on my ever growing pin badge collection and at the moment Ohayou Clothing! is dominating my pin flag… Soon enough I’ll have to get a separate pin flag purely for her marvellous pins.

ANYWAY enough chin wagging, it’s time to FINALLY get on with my first (of I’m sure many) Ohayou Clothing! post!

When Ohayou Clothing! announced her Sleeping Eeveelutions Kickstarer campaign I was so excited and made sure to back her campaign as soon as I could! She had a few issues with her Kickstarter due to copyright issues with Nintendo and Pokemon and it had to be frozen for a while. However, it was all sorted in the end and her Kickstarter continued and it did so well. I’m so proud of how much she made with the campaign! It’s definitely a Kickstarter I’ve had a pleasure being a part of.

When the campaign came to an end, it was time to decide which pin design you wanted and the one I settled on (after a bit of a struggle) was the sleeping Vaporeon pin. It’s so adorable and cute! I love how all of the sleeping Pokemon pins have themes based on their type. Of course Vaporeon being a water Pokemon it’s sleeping on a beach. It was tough to be honest having to pick just one pin as my reward (I only opted to back one as my pin obsession was pretty nonexistent then…) only allowed me to have one pin. I just love Vaporeon though and the beach scene reminds me of Fuerteventura, which is my second home.

After these pins were released and sent to their new owners, Chrissy opened up a secret shop on her store for people to come and buy brand new sleeping Pokemon pins, as well as seconds pins.

Seconds pins are pins that have been sent with issues, such as wrong colour, marks on various parts of the pin and basically just anything wrong with the pin that you can think of!

Although I had my heart set on the Vaporeon pin all along, I did fall in love with the Mew pin that was brought out as the first unlocked reward. So when Mew came out as a seconds pin, I knew I had to order! It recently arrived in the post and I have to say, I wouldn’t even think it was a seconds pin! It looks just as good in quality as the Vaporeon pin, as well as some other pins I own by Ohayou Clothing! The one thing I love about the Mew pin is that it’s surrounded by Japanese sakura (well it looks like that to me anyhoo! :P) and it’s just so cute! I can’t wait to wear it throughout winter to be honest with my cream jumper.

When I ordered my Mew pin I decided to order the Spyro pin that Ohayou Clothing! designed recently. I wasn’t going to to be honest as the smart adult in my brain was saying, “No Nat, you don’t need that!” whereas the nostalgic youngster in my knew she had to have it.

Spyro is a massive part of my gaming life as I used to play it when I was younger during the summer holidays with my cousins. We’d take it in turns to go around each world and attempt to complete them 100%. I loved it!

So I knew I needed the Spyro pin badge in my life! It’s so adorable and I cannot wait to wear it over the summer and winter months for work. The remastered Spyro games are out in September so I’ll be rocking this pin on jumpers throughout that month for sure.

The thing I love the most about this design is how much of a rebel Spyro STILL looks, whilst giving the pins design a cute kawaii feel. Also, look at that glitter, it’s so fabulous! πŸ˜€ I know not everyone knows what half of the Pokemon are anymore who are out, but everyone who was around in the 00’s will know who Spyro is.

Finally I’m going to talk about the Pin Dream pins I have from Ohayou Clothing! so far. NOW when I started writing this post towards the end of last week, it was before some sad news from Ohayou Clothing about her Pokemon designs and pins.

Like when the Kickstarter was around, Nintendo and Pokemon have got to Ohayou Clothing! again and told her she has to stop making and selling Pokemon designs. I am gutted to be perfectly honest with you. Due to this, the Vaporeon pin will be the last Pokemon pin for the Pin Dream pins. I was so excited for the rest of the Eeveelution doughnut designs to come out, but that aside I’m angry on behalf of Chrissy. There are plenty of other people out there who are inspired by Pokemon and their designs to create their own designs and images of certain ones. There are loads of Kickstater campaigns out there that are producing Pokemon inspired pins, as well as hundreds of Etsy stores and even Redbubble. So why is Ohayou Clothing! getting it and no one else appears to be? Well, yet anyway.

Either way I will continue to support Ohayou Clothing and Chrissy with her store, as well as with her future Pin Dream designs!

For now though, I will talk about the first two pins she came out with for her Pin Dream Patreon. They’re both Pokemon pins and I love them so damn much, as I said, I’m just gutted I won’t ever be able to own all 9 pins. 😦

The first pin was an Eevee doughnut pin and I knew I wanted it so much! The design of it is adorable, from the sparkly brown doughnut, to the fluffy tail dangling down, and the adorable little tongue that Eevee is sticking out. There is nothing wrong with this pin and it definitely ticks all the KAWAII boxes.

Chrissy always packages all her parcels perfectly and with the Patreon Pin Dream’s you get a couple of little extras too as a thank you for supporting her. With the Eevee doughnut I got a sticker of Eevee sleeping as well as a Glaceon badge.

The second Pin Dream is the Vaporeon doughnut and sadly I haven’t had the chance to wear it and show it off yet. This only arrived recently but I’m sure I’ll wear it at some point soon for work or in general. This pin is just as gorgeous as the Eevee one with the blue glitter doughnut this time. Not going to lie the Eevee pin is definitely cuter than Vaporeon, but the blue makes up for that! πŸ˜€ This will be lovely to wear on my red coat during the winter season.

Like with the Eevee pin (as well as all of her packages to be honest…) the Parteon package for Vaporeon came with some lovely little extras again, including an Eevee and Vaporeon sticker, as well as some Japanese candy, which was really yummy. πŸ˜›

So, that’s my pin collection from Ohayou Clothing! so far.

I am gutted about the whole Pokemon palava with Chrissy, especially considering she had so many cute ideas coming up with Pokemon, including Cubone and Dragonite, which I was excited to get during her designing stages.

I really hope in the future that Nintendo and Pokemon chill out and allow Chrissy to continue being amazing. OR they could just offer her a job to designs some new merchandise for the Pokemon Centre in Japan. πŸ˜›

What do you guys think of Ohayou Clothing’s! cute pin badges? πŸ˜€ Which do you like the most? Maybe you already own some of her merchandise! She doesn’t just design pins, she designs clothing, as well as homeware. I live in my Eevee and Umbreon varsity jackets when it isn’t hot! πŸ˜€

Let me know in the comments what you think of Ohayou Clothing! AND if like me you don’t agree with how Nintendo and Pokemon are treating her, then join me in talking about it online on Twitter and Instagram.

Oh by the way, do you guys like my little Mii Kun that has recently come into my life? πŸ˜› I’ll be talking about him properly soon, but I love him so bloody much! He’s from the anime How To Keep A Mummy, which you should watch if you love cute anime series.

Here’s a little bonus picture I posted on my Twitter page…

He looks so realistic here. I love the plushie so fucking much and I really hope to feature him more when it comes to talking about anything kawaii and Japan related. πŸ˜›

Anyhoo, until next time I hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
