Life Lately – Busy Little Bee

To think the last time I wrote a life lately post it was in January… That was nearly 5 months ago… When is the year going to slow down?

If there is one thing that I feel I haven’t been on my blog lately, it’s busy bee… Like the title of this post states. If anything it feels like the complete opposite. My blog has been quiet lately with most weeks just having one post a week, instead of my usual two to three. This change is just due to how busy I am right now… Seriously!

Not just that, but I’ve kind of taken a step back from being so fixated on my blog. What I mean by that is:

“I MUST get a blog post up today!”

“I MUST work with brands that I want to work with and attend events I’d love to attend!”

Even so much as saying to Dane, “I CAN’T do that today because I have loads of blog stuff to do!”

You catch my drift?

When did my number one hobby become my side job?!

My blog is and always has been a place for me to go and talk about things I love and enjoy, not to stress over. I never want to have a day when I have a crap and stressful day because I’m having a life. That just takes the fun out of it!

I’m pretty sure you guys are wondering, “So Nat? How come postsย have gone from two to three a week to mostly just one recently?”

Well, I’ve been asking myself this same questions and I feel like I’ve finally found an answer. More than one in fact:

Reason 1 – To be blunt, for almost a year I was hardly doing any work in my previous job, so most of the time there was nothing to do and I had loads of free time to work on my blog and posts. Of course since starting at my new job I don’t get that now, which is great! I honestly love being busy! I can work on blog posts during my break, which I do sometimes… But to be honest with you, I like to just chill out, talk to my colleagues and playย Animal Crossing: Pocket Campย on my phone.

Reason 2 – Since the start of 2019 I feel like I have a life… This sounds bad… Maybe even borderline rude but hear me out! I’ve worked with Cov Bloggersย loads this year so far and made some amazing new friends through it, especially Amy (Writing into the Ether) who I meet up with often to go on double dates to play board games, as well as go geeky shopping around Birmingham and Coventry. I also meet up with one of my best friends weekly to go to pole fitness classes together. I love it! I finish work, have dinner and she pops over for a natter before we head to the class. I just love having that time once a week with her to have fun with pole fitness, as well as catch up on things. I’m just having more me time right now, as well as more me and Dane couple time, as well as seeing friends.

Reason 3 – I’m just calming down with going bat shit crazy in regards to blog related matter. I’ve pretty much cooled down because I’m kind of facing fact that blogging won’t really be a job for me… As much as I want it to, it just won’t. I’m at that age where I just can’t be arsed to chase job dreams. I have a great job right now and I love being an admin. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do and to be fair, I’m good at it! Don’t change something that isn’t broken!

So, what does the future hold for There Might Be Coffee?

Nothing any different to before, to be honest.

I’m still the same Nat. I still write the same nonsense as before, it just might be that some weeks I don’t have as many blog posts up as other weeks.

When I originally thought about this post I had made the note that I would stick to writing one post a week and have special posts be up two or three times a week. This being said, apart from this past week, I easily had 2 posts up a week with no real issues… It’s tough to say, “I’m going to have one post up a week!” and then bring you guys the old fashioned two to three and vice versa.

I may just stick to one post a week for now but always try to aim for two. I guess it depends how busy I am. For example this week I was stupid busy, which is why I only had one post up this week. Monday was the only day in the week that I could write. Tuesday I played D&D, Wednesday I was with my mom, Thursday I went to pole fitness and Friday I wanted a fucking rest. As for the weekend I wanted a mixture of rest and me time. Yesterday I had a long lie in, one I haven’t had for that long since I was in my early twenties. Just goes to show how shattered I was! For the rest of the day I mostly played games and did housework. Turning my laptop on didn’t even occur to me and I’m glad to be honest. This morning I have so far played games, watching some Nintendo E3 2019 footage and then got down to working.

I’m sure I don’t have to remind my readers but this ISN’T my job. It’s my hobby, granted my number one hobby but nonetheless, still a hobby. This hobby has helped me find people with similar interests as myself who I have befriended along the way. It’s also helped me work with amazing companies and gain more confidence and I love it for that and more. I never regret starting my blog and I’m not at a point in my life where I want to stop it altogether either. It’s my baby. ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted to mention what I want to do for the remainder of the year with my blog, including some TLC and even some exciting blog series coming up! I’d also love to revamp my blog at some point, but I don’t know when that will be. I’d love to try and have my own domain, as well as get a layout for my blog that will make me scream, “KAWAII!” every time I go onto it. Again… We’ll see.

As for exciting things coming up, as I wrote last month I’m now working with YY Kawaii as a brand affiliate, which I’m so over the moon about!

I also plan to try and grab you guys some awesome discount codes for a couple of brands I hope to work with on future blog posts. I’m just so excited to start working with brands I know and love! I already have an awesome discount code lined up with a brand who sells D&D products, so keep eyes peeled for that in the future. ๐Ÿ™‚

Outside of blog related stuff life is pretty nice right now. I’m enjoyed my new job, I’m opening up to more things I love too, thanks to the amazing people around me (thanks Dane and Amy for getting me into boards games even more and especially D&D!). Speaking of D&D I’ll soon have a new series on my blog dedicated to this where I talk about what made me want to play it and why, how I build my character and about my character, where I buy dice and accessories from, etc.

The best bit of news though is the fact me and Dane are FINALLY going to Japan after 6 years of talking and dreaming about it! I don’t want to talk too much about it on this post as I plan to have a whole new 6 part series on my blog in the run up to our trip to Japan. This will be starting soon so make sure to keep eyes peeled for it.

Exciting, eh?!

Honestly I just want to say a huge thank you to all of my readers, friends, Cov Bloggers and even companies who have and continue to work with me. Honestly I love and appreciate you all so much and I don’t think works can describe how happy you make me feel. You all make me feel like what I do with my blog is worth it every single day and that’s why I love you all so much.

Without you guys, There Might Be Coffee wouldn’t be here. It would still be under my horrible old blog name with posts that weren’t true to myself. With time I’ve become someone I always wanted to be and I love that I can be that person here too.

Please let me know in the comments what you’re excited for on my blog, as well as any posts you would love me to write!

Until next time all, take care andย I hope you guys are all having a wonderful weekend so far and aren’t getting soaked by the horrible rain we’re having right now.

Life Lately -Urgh Can 2019 Slow Down?!

I just want to address that I didn’t realise I hadn’t written a life lately post since August 2018!

I didn’t think it had been so long to be honest with you, but it’s obvious that from August until now things haven’t been too bad. Not that things are bad when I do a life lately post, but I usually tend to do them when I want to address some things with you guys – my readers.

I’ve got myself a cup of earl grey tea and I’m binge watching a TV show I’ve come to adore since my Christmas time off work. I think you should grab yourself a lovely drink and get settled down for this blog post. ๐Ÿ™‚

To start off this post I’ll be blunt. January hasn’t been shit but it hasn’t been perfect. It’s been exhausting. My jokey wording for January is like a bad shag – yeah it’s good for the time but leaves you unsatisfied and you wonder why you bothered in the first place.

2019 is the year I want to try and have my blog better than ever and I know we’re only into the first month of the year but deep down I already feel like I’ve fucked up somehow.

Without going into too much detail (because I’m private in some ways and all that) I got a promotion at work, a very good one at that. It was fab being offered it as finally after working on and off since the age of 14, I’ve finally been recognised and been shown I have some potential. It’s amazing and I love it. However, with responsibility comes the realisation of being an adult… Even though I experience that anyway, but you know what I mean!

Due to this new responsibility I’ve been busier than ever and my blog has been pushed away due to this. This sucks. I love my blog, it’s what I look forward to doing after days at work and over the weekend. I love writing my geeky content, reviews and especially working with companies to promote their amazing products.

I also love chatting to bloggers and followers on my Twitter and Instagram about all sorts and even that I feel like I’m pushed it to the side due to being tired and busy.

I just feel like since the start of the year my blog has taken a MASSIVE step back and this upsets me. It’s my hobby at the end of the day and my main one at that. It upsets me that something I am so passionate about and love is being shoved on a dusty shelf until I get around to looking at it again from afar. It really fucking sucks.

When I have been coming to looking at my blog and doing work on it I feel like the content I write and publish is shite, utter shite. Boring shite at that that no one cares about. I know this isn’t true though. My fabulous friends and followers are commenting on posts still and I love you all to the moon and back for sticking with me.

There have been a few tough moments for my blog, the worst being back in 2013/2014 when my blog had really taken off, but so had my anxiety and depression. I used to come home from my job at the time and just lie in bed, with something playing in the background as I mindlessly thought about how shit my life was and whether or not I wanted to carry on.

Alas 5/6 years later I’m in a much better place than I was and I can’t believe how I am now. My younger self would never believe that I could ever be better. Granted I’m not 100%, but I’m in a much better place.

I know this post has been utter waffle, but I just wanted to get it out there that I know my blog content hasn’t been amazing this month and that I’ve been fairly quiet on social media, but it’ll get better.

Throughout February I’m going to try and post my usual sort of content from reviews, beauty, lifestyle, geeky stuff and maybe some fashion too.

Are there any posts you’d love to see on my blog throughout February? ๐Ÿ™‚ Make sure to let me know in the comments!

I am rather excited for next month for coffee dates, seeing Sabrepulse play as well as many more things. What plans do you have for February? Make sure to let me know about that in the comments too.

Until next time all, I hope you’re well and have had a fab weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

Life Lately… Writers Block

Image taken from weheartit.com

Urgh seeing as I can’t seem to get my act together to write all the posts I was excited to do when I got back from holiday, I’ve decided to do a life lately update instead. Boring, I know but better than nothing.

I’m currently stuck at home in immense pain due to a trapped nerve/pulled muscle in my thigh and I’m really not loving life. I’m in pain standing, walking and even sitting. The only time I didn’t see to be in pain was when I was lying in bed asleep… Typical! Even then I had a very strange sleep last night due to a mixture of weird and upsetting dreams.

I won’t talk about what happened in the last dream of the night but don’t you hate in dreams when you’re trying to escape somewhere and you can’t get out? Or when you’re hitting someone you hate and your every punch, slap and gun shot to their body isn’t affecting them at all? Yeah, I hate that too. ๐Ÿ˜›

ANYWAY! Enough of me moaning about my crappy dreams and my even crappier leg! Let’s talk about life lately. ๐Ÿ˜›

I had an amazing 2 weeks in Fuerteventura to be honest and I wish I hadn’t had to come home, but at the same time I really missed my home. Mine and Dane’s lovely little home that me and Dane have created together the past year and a bit.

Image taken from weheartit.com

Since getting back home a couple of weeks ago I just feel like I haven’t had a moment for myself… Yet anyway. If I haven’t been doing housework and catching up on stuff around the house (aka cleaning, chores, etc) I’ve been busy with work. As many readers will know, I work full time and my latest shift finishes at 6pm. That’s then 4 hours (I’m boring and go to bed at 10pm) that I have to have dinner and chill out with Dane. Blog work doesn’t often become a part of them 4 hours to be honest.

I also recently had some first aid training which was so exciting to do and I was looking forward to it the whole holiday, as sad as that sounds. A week later I haven’t done anything yet but I am nervous about the moment I get that first call saying they need someone to help. This being said, I will have a more experienced first aider with me, which is great!

SO with all that stuff going on I’ve either had no time to write for my blog or whenever I have sat to do blog related stuff I’ve just felt too mentally drained to write anything. I also find myself getting distracted too. I’ll go into that in a while…

I have so many drafts though of Fuerteventura related posts but I’ve probably written “notes” on them for now and that’s it. I’m gutted that I haven’t even gotten both of those posts out by now!

I just feel like I can’t be arsed to write blog posts the past week when I know I can do something else instead. For example play my PlayStation, watch American Horror Story or even do some housework, as boring as that sounds!

Image taken from weheartit.com

The past week as well I’ve been looking online for Christmas present ideas as since me and Dane coming home from Fuerteventura there’s Christmas stuff everywhere now, as well as Halloween. We can officially say that we have started our Christmas present shopping for one another and it’s such an odd feeling. Christmas is just 68 sleeps away. WHAT?!

That aside I really do feel like I’m rambling! But as I was saying, since getting back from holiday things are really slow, especially my brain. As I said, I have all these ideas for blog posts but it’s just getting them written, pictures taken and the post to get bloody published.

It’s happening with my Instagram account too (which you can view here) but I am trying to use the stories whenever I can’t post about anything. I’m going to try and give myself a kick up the arse though to improve. I think due to the holiday I’ve come back being a bit relaxed.

SO I thought I would update on what posts you’re expecting to see before the start of November when my monthly posts will be up.

  • Fuerteventura Favourites
  • Fuerteventura Haul
  • Barry M Matte Me Up Metallic Lip Kit in shade Avant Garde – Review
  • MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in shade Model Behaviour – Review
  • Things I Will & Won’t Miss About Fuerteventura
  • Halloween Decorating & Evening Ideas
  • DIY Pin Badge Art
  • Things I Want To Start Doing
  • Sulphate Shampoo Reviews

That’s just some examples of stuff I want to get written and publish on my blog, when it will happen I don’t know and the order I’ve posted them above isn’t the order they’ll be in. Just keep eyes peeled and if there’s any posts you want to see ASAP then drop me a Tweet @maybeecoffee

I do apologise for how quiet it’s been on here the past week as well as my ranty life lately. I feel like there’s not much to talk about interesting really. My life is pretty damn boring to be honest! ๐Ÿ˜›

Anything interesting happening to you guys lately? Please let me know in the comments down below, or over at my Twitter!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re all well!

Life Lately… A Roller Coaster!

Wow it has almost been a month since I wrote a life lately post! Just goes to show how busy I was with getting on with life that I haven’t really written a massive update.

I’ve just got back from a late shift at work and I’m sat in the living room, with Dane cooking me dinner as I binge watch YouTube videos. OH WHAT AN AMAZING LIFE I DO LEAD. END OF POST! ๐Ÿ˜› Sadly due to being so busy the weekend and the late shift yesterday I am a day late posting this… It’s worth the wait though… I hope. xD

I joke of course, this is intended to be a long read so make sure you have a hot drink handy to cradle as you read. Or at least save this post for your work break or a long journey. I hope it is as long as I am anticipating… THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID.

The first thing I want to talk about is how I went to see cKy on Friday night and how fucking amazing they were! I’ve been listening to them since I was fourteen years old and have always wanted to see them live.

SO when I saw at the start of the year that they had announced a UK tour and a date in Birmingham, I KNEW I had to go! At first Dane wasn’t so sure as I think he imagined it would cost a fortune due to it being cKy. I knew it wouldn’t be too expensive due to the original venue so when we found out it would only cost us ยฃ15.00 each Dane was more into the idea. I was going to go all along anyway so yeah. ๐Ÿ˜›

So the morning the tickets went on sale I was at work so Dane booked them. It did sell out but the venue changed to a bigger one so that more tickets could go on sale… I assume anyway!

I swear the couple of months we waited to go to the gig really flew by and I was so excited and nervous the day of the gig. Of course I was excited to finally go and see a band I’ve been waiting to see live for over 10 years. But I was also really nervous because of various things. Due to wanting to see them play for so many years the anticipation of being able to make sure me and Dane got a good place to sit or stand was making me anxious. I also wanted to try and meet the band before or after too, which again was making me extremely nervous.

Well I needn’t have been nervous and anxious as the gig itself was amazing! Me and Dane decided to sit towards the back by the bars so that we could get a good view and sit down without being bashed around. I do regret not being near the front but at the same time I got the same sound and a great view of everything that was going on just as well.

Before the gig we picked up some merchandise from the stand. I picked up a baseball t-shirt which I cannot wait to wear! The material is lovely and soft and when I tried it on it looked awesome. Dane got himself a t-shirt too but he picked up the tour one which looks awesome! I can see me stealing it. ๐Ÿ˜›

After the gig we hung around for a bit inside the venue and picked up the support bands CD, they were amazing and the singer/bass player had a double bass AND is left handed! I’m a left handed guitar/bass player so whenever I see lefties like myself it makes me very happy. ๐Ÿ˜›

We went around the back of the O2 Academy to see if any of the band mates were around and low and behold there was Jess! My favourite member of cKy! I didn’t actually think I’d be able to meet any of the band, let alone my favourite. I went down and after allowing people before me to “have their turn” in talking to Jess, having pictures and things signed it was my turn and I was shaking with nerves. I’ve always been nervous when meeting celebrities like anyone is but I don’t ever remember feeling this nervous before. I was shaking all over and I didn’t know what to say!

Jess was lovely though and both me and Dane had a chat with him about when he last toured with cKy, how they played Download years before and even about what he was doing that night after the show. I even recommend some bars in town for him to go and drink at. It was awesome and he signed my ticket as well as having a picture with me.

I went home feeling on top of the world and the 14 year old Nat who was starting to come out of her shell was ecstatic and like nothing could get her down. That’s somewhat how I’ve felt in my 27 year old self since Saturday night… ๐Ÿ˜›

OH and you know what? The next day Chad liked a comment I left on one of the videos cKy put up on their Instagram from the gig. This just added to how happy I had felt the night before. Sorry about the obvious phone call that I print screened what Chad liked… I was on the phone to my dad at the time. ๐Ÿ˜›

That was the biggest thing I wanted to talk about in this post BUT I also want to talk about a couple of other things!

Friday I picked up a new PS4 game as I hadn’t bought myself one since Mafia 3 and Pokemon Moon. I picked up Persona 5 and it’s one I have quickly fallen in love with! I know I love Pokemon but I haven’t been able to get into Moon that much right now sadly… Persona 5 reminds me of Pokemon a little bit to be honest but with an anime element to it. I’ll be writing more about it in my monthly favourites at the start of June but I’ll pop a trailer above so you can see what it’s all about. It came out recently so it hasn’t been out that long, but it’s been out in Japan since September/October last year! :O This seemed to be sold out for a while in the UK as wherever I looked online it either wasn’t available or was only available in limited edition steel cases which cost a FORTUNE! :/

Some good news (not that there is really any bad news in this post… Well not yet anyway!) my lips are finally looking like they’re healed after 3 fucking months of hell, pain and torture! Basically I hadย angular cheilitis, this whole post here explains what was wrong. After that post however I had to go back to the doctors to get some more treatment as the one I was given worked, but only to fix my eczema. I was given an anti-biotic cream which has worked marvellously! Although this being said the infection did come back and I had to apply the cream again last night. So far it looks like it has healed. I’m hoping so for various reasons…

Due to how sore my lips have been I haven’t been able to wear ANY lip products bar lip balms… Yep no lipsticks at all. I have really missed not being able to wear any and to be honest due to how the infection can contaminate lip products I am now kinda too scared to wear any of my lipsticks in case the infection hasn’t gone or returns… I’m going to give it until June to wear anything else.

Image taken from weheartit.com

As many people will know lipstick is the only make up I really wear and due to this it’s my “thing” especially since I’ve dug deeper into it and experimented with it by wearing darker colours. If there’s a lipstick I really miss wearing it’s definitely got to be my MAC lipsticks, which I am craving to wear lately. I really fucking sucks.

You watch though, as soon as I start wearing my lip products again I’ll be writing ALL THE LIPSTICK POSTS! ๐Ÿ˜›

I don’t think I really made a post about this but me and Dane are going on holiday in September! YAY! We’re both super excited for it as we weren’t planning on going on holiday until we could afford to go to Japan. My parents were kind enough to offer to pay for us to go and have it as an early Christmas present. Of course we need to get our own spending money but that isn’t a problem! We have already started saving and we’re doing really well so far. EEEP SO EXCITED! By the way, we’re going to Fuerteventura again. ๐Ÿ˜›

Speaking of “holidays” me and Dane were going to book ourselves a short couple of day trip to London for our anniversary but sadly we aren’t going to now… We got super excited about all the places we would go and visit, as well as places to go shopping and have food at. The reasons for not going ahead with it are money, money and money.

Not only do we have our holiday to think about and save up for but we also have bills to think of. I have my car insurance to renew again soon and of course having our own house isn’t cheap… So yeah.

We can always go to London at the end of the year around Christmas time, or in the New Year for my birthday. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is another bit of good news! I’ve started to be more active on my Twitter and Instagram pages which of course is good news! I was really anxious with using Instagram for my blog to be honest due to all the hashtags and well dickheads on there. ๐Ÿ˜› Sadly due to this I won’t be putting any pictures of myself on there. The only place I do that is on my personal Instagram page, which is private. ๐Ÿ˜›

Don’t forget if you want to give me a follow on either of those accounts it’s @maybeecoffee for Twitter and @theremightbecoffeeblog for Instagram.

Finally I want to talk about what makes this life lately post a roller coaster… My mental health isn’t good right now. It’s actually gotten bad enough that I am seeking getting counselling… Again. Urgh. Also that picture by The Latest Kate is so accurate for how I feel in life right now… I just wish I could think that way when I have bad days.

Image taken from The Latest Kate

This isn’t something I was expecting to have to do ever again and whilst my mental health isn’t bad in suicidal sense (although I DO feel suicidal from time to time… Yuck.) but bad in the sense my anxiety is just awful right now. I’m constantly overthinking things from work, home, friends, everything to be honest. I’ve been worse to be honest but it’s bad this time in the sense it is affecting my health. Even my doctor has told ย me due to stress and anxiety my bodies immune system is down. Not good.

So yeah. The few people I have spoken to about this has all said how proud they are of me for accepting that I need to do this for myself right now. I just hope it helps to be able to talk to someone. I feel like I bug my best friend Gab (hey! *waves*) and Dane with my problems… Even though deep down I know I don’t.

I’ll be keeping you guys updated with that stuff anyway to be honest. ๐Ÿ™‚

Other than that everything is… Weird. It’s a mixture of good and shit right now. I’m living for the good though! I’m trying to just live for the moment and have the best time I can with Dane. We both have a week off together soon so we can celebrate our anniversary. I don’t think we’ll be doing all that much other than going out for a couple of adventures, see some friends and chill out at home. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well my coffee is now bone cold and although I like cold coffee I think that means this post is over. ๐Ÿ˜›

How have my lovely readers lives been lately? Drop me a tweet about how you’re doing, or comment down below. Either way I’m happy with! I love getting comments and tweets. They make me happy. ^_^

I hope you all enjoyed today’s read and I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Until next time take care all!

Life Lately… A House Update

Let’s just say that life has been pretty damn busy of late, and when I say busy, I MEAN busy! Me and Dane have officially owned our home for over a month now, which sounds exciting, but in reality it has been fucking stressful. Anyone who ever thinks that buying a house, doing it up, and everything else that comes with it is straight forward then you’re in for a shock.

 photo Photo 17-06-2016 8 01 58 pm_zpsho7jl9fz.jpg

Buying a house is hard work, and if you aren’t willing to put that effort in, then forget about buying one. Rent because that would be a hundred times easier than buying one. Purely because of all the paperwork that comes with it before you even get the keys. Then after that, (of course depending if you buy a new or pre-owned home) you then need to think about decorating, and any renovation you may need to do, hell even in a new home you may need to do this!

Oh and did I mention money? Make sure you have plenty of it, because so far we have spent thousands on ours, and I don’t just mean the deposit.

Our house wasn’t perfect, it has proven to be a lot of hard work, and stressful. Due to these two elements it has really had an effect on my mental health. My depression hasn’t been all that great some days, and for about a week I started to have symptoms of post natal depression… I know that usually comes during/after pregnancy but that is the only thing I can relate my initial feelings of the house to.

I didn’t feel like I wanted the house anymore, and often pushed it away or didn’t want to do anything to it. It was a sad period, and one I soon came out of and am glad to say I haven’t gone back to.

I hope to do a buying your first home post in the future with a guide of what to expect, what not to expect, etc. You get the point. Buying a house is hard, especially when it’s your first one and you don’t have a clue what the hell is going on. I read some blog posts on what to and what not to expect and they did help a little. A huge piece of advice I read was, “Don’t get too excited about the first house you see, because chances are you won’t get it.” This is so true! I will go into more about that in the future though.

As I said at the start of this post, we have had the keys and been working on our house for over a month now, and are we moved in yet? Erm… Nope… BUT we should be this week! We pretty much have everything done and ready, it’s just a few little things here and there, but mostly the bathroom now, which was one of the last things we decided to focus on.

We didn’t realise how much work we had cut out for us until we were in there. I will be writing a separate post on all that however, as I want to do a before and after style post.

As well as the house I haven’t really been doing all that much else… Plenty of shopping for the house to be honest, and working I guess, and I went out with my friend Sophie for a sushi and shopping day. By the way, yes I was sat in a bath in the above picture… With my yellow raincoat on. Buying a house has apparently caused me to act like a bored child on a Sunday morning in Wickes or B&Q.

Other than the house I don’t have much else exciting that has happened… I ordered the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Summer Bundle which was very naughty of me due to how much I paid… That could have gone on house stuff… Meh you only live once I guess! If you want to get your hands on the bundle head over to Beautylish, as they calculate your Royal Mail handling fee, etc into the total. Plus they have two bundles left, so get ordering!

I am also swimming in Deadpool goodies!… Well… Kinda. Dane bought me a Deadpool notebook, as well as some Deadpool festival style bracelets, which I love. OH and speaking of the mercenary himself, Good Smile Company also recently showed us what the Deadpool Nendoroid is going to look like. I want him SO MUCH. All the excitement in our house right now.

I want to show off in this post so much right now all the amazing artwork I have bought for the house so far, but I can’t… I just need to wait to give all the tattoo artists who drew said artwork the credit they deserve!

I’m going to end this blog post with an apology for being so quiet lately. I’m sure regular readers of my blog will understand, and for people who have stuck by me, and supported me I thank you from the bottom of my heart. We haven’t finished yet, but we are definitely getting there now.

Take a picture of me with a sea lion! I recently re-discovered that this existed, and it’s caused me to miss my home in Fuerteventura. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

How is everyone doing lately? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below! I’d love to have a natter with you! Oh and don’t forget that you can always drop me a tweet if you do so wish! My handle is @maybeecoffee

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

M.I.A. & This Week…

Oh dear I haven’t posted for over a week now… *smacks self on hand repeatedly until no longer feels bad and due to this arrives back to continue writing post hours later*

I do have my reasons though! I’m currently on holiday from work, and I’ll be returning back on Wednesday. I planned to sit around doing stuff at home, and writing loads of blog posts to last me at least a fortnight, but alas this hasn’t happened. For a change I haven’t been stuck in the house like I assumed I would be, and went out pretty much everyday!

Monday I went for a day out in town with my friend Sophie to eat sushi, do some nerdy shopping, got stuck in the rain, and chilled out at hers in the evening. It was lovely, and it’s days like that with her that I really do enjoy.

The new Matcha Roll from YO! Sushi. For how much it cost it wasn’t really worth the money…

Tuesday I wasn’t very well for pretty much most of the day so I spent it in bed playing Spyro 2 on my PlayStation and catching up with season 8 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Seriously love that show! Later on in the afternoon Dane came over after work to stay the night. He had the rest of the week booked off as holiday, as it was his birthday Thursday.

Wednesday we had a VERY busy day! I had planned to bake Dane a cake for his birthday, and was supposed to go out and buy everything on Tuesday, but alas I was poorly. But it didn’t matter as we had a lovely day together on Wednesday! We discovered a new shopping centre to go to instead of our usual ones, had lunch at Ed’s Diner, and got all the stuff we needed for his cake! I’ll be writing a post on this for tomorrow, as his cake was just too amazing not to talk about… Well in my opinion anyway. ๐Ÿ˜› It took almost three hours to make, so it better have been good!

Ed’s Diner shakes are the best! I had the Biscoff one, delicious. ^_^

Thursday was Dane’s birthday and it was a really nice day. We went to a local farm that we always enjoy visiting (you can read about it hereย and here) and saw the cutest little bunny there! We really wanted to buy him, but alas we don’t have the room for him right now, which sucks. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ We went for a meal at Frankie & Benny’s too, which was amazing! Dane loved all the presents he was bought, and was mostly bought Deadpool related goodies. I also bought him the Darth Vader Nendoroid that he needed for his ever-growing collection. He was really pleased with him, which is good because he was hard to find! ๐Ÿ˜›

Not going to lie when I say that it makes me sad looking at these pictures of the bunny, just because I fell in love with him so much. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Friday was another good day. We spent the morning in bed chilling out, reading our comic books and manga, and decided to go out to Forbidden Planet in Coventry, as well as IKEA. Just to get us out the house really. I’m currently reading the Sword Art Online Progressive manga (and by the way, I am LOVING it!) and Dane as usual is reading his Deadpool comics. For the rest of the day we pretty much chilled out, and played Xbox One games.

Sword Art Online Progressive manga. I’m currently on book 3, and loving the series so far!

Saturday more of a chilled out day, and a bit stressful due to trying to decide whether or not to buy the bunny we had seen Thursday, but alas it hasn’t happened. Which is a shame but meh… We hope he’ll go to a loving home. He was so damn cute! For the rest of the day we chilled out, read more manga and comic books, and played more games. Was legit a very chilled out day. I was meant to try to get some blog work done, but alas it didn’t happen. I did however order myself some new Jeffree Star Cosmetics liquid lipsticks! WOOHOO! I picked up his new shade Scorpio, and Redrum! I cannot wait for them to arrive, I’ll be making sure to review them. ๐Ÿ˜›

Sunday is today and I intend to get LOADS of blog work done! Me and Dane are contemplating going out to get out of the house for a while… But personally I don’t think I can be arsed. I have at least three or four posts I want to attempt to get writtenย today, and then loads Monday and Tuesday too before I’m due back at work Wednesday. We shall see what happens!

Again I apologise for not being very active this past week on my blog, and to be honest I’ve just wanted to relax over my holiday from work, even though I didn’t do that at allllll! I promise to be back and active on my blog from today.

I hope to have a post up today, but if not today, then tomorrow for sure!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’ve had just as good a week as I did.

Currently #4

I’ve kinda been updating you on my life recently due to so much happening what with Christmas, New Year, and my birthday, but I wanted to do a currently post so I could update you all properly on how things have been recently, aside from busy with all the holidays mentioned above!

I’ve been excited to do another currently list for ages! So here is currently number four.

Watching: I have been watching all sorts recently. Mostly a mixture of Mrs. Brown’s Boys, and Making a Murderer, but come on, who isn’t watching that? I do really like Making a Murderer but at the same time it frustrates me so much to watch, that I have to take breaks from it just to think about what the hell is going on! My boyfriend got me to watch the first episode on my birthday, and I was pleasantly surprised to see what it was about. I hate jumping on the bandwagon to be honest, but I’m glad I did as it is a very interesting documentary. I need to finish it mind… Might do that today. I got Mrs. Brown’s Boys as a reward from my old job for doing so well in my customer service and such. That will be one perk of my old job that I’ll miss, the rewards you would get! I really like Mrs. Brown’s Boys, it’s hilarious and the Irish humour is spot on. The movie isn’t that great however… My dad also loves this so we’ll be watching it together soon I hope. There are a couple of clips I love from this show, and I couldn’t pick one so I’ve added two above for you to watch, and a crappy one because I can’t find said clip anywhere online!

Playing:ย As I am yet to write about, I bought a PlayStation 4 after Christmas and I am so happy that I did! With that I have been playing plenty of games on there. The one I’ve been playing the most (and actually 100% completed last night) isย Life is Strange.ย I’ve played it before, but I bought it for my PS4 to get the trophies, as well as remind myself what happened in the story. I loved it, and I’m sure I’ll play it again at some point in the future. As well as that I’ve been playingย Little Big Planet 3ย with my boyfriend, which has been loads of fun! We played it loads on my birthday and it was nice, really nice. I can’t wait for him to get back from holiday so we can play it again soon. Until Dawn is another game I’ve played a little of, and I intend to play more after I’ve written this blog post as I really crave playing it right now! As well as tonight when I get home from pole dance fitness.

Listening: I’m pretty damn bored with my music at the moment. Like REALLY bored. I haven’t had something come up on the shuffle playlist that’s made me think, “Damn I haven’t listened to that artist for a while!” and put them on later, or the next day. I’ve been looking around YouTube for some new artists to check out, and Nightcore is one I have gladly discovered. They take songs and speed them up a little to make them sound sort of chipmunk like, sort of reminds me of Japanese music for some reason… Which is why I like it! I have been listening to a couple of the songs, and I intend to download some soon for my car. The second video I have linked I listened to for the first time today and it made me cry, as it made me think of how I feel about my boyfriend. So it’s officially my song for him. ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheesy? Yes. Fucks given? Zero!

Eating: CRAP! Honestly I haven’t been eating that great at the moment. Not even in the sense of I’ve been eating rubbish like junk, but I’ve hardly been eating lately and it isn’t for bad reasons either. I just haven’t really had the energy to. I’ll eat little tid bits and that’s it. I cooked myself something though a few nights ago and it was lovely. I do want to start eating healthy again, like I was when I was dieting, but I don’t want to at the same time. I like having my treats. I have however been drinking lots of tea, and I don’t know why. I blame it being cold and not wanting to drink coffee all the time.

Wearing: I got some new PJs for Christmas (which you can see here) so I’ve been wearing them loads since receiving them! As well as that I have been notoriously wearing my 101 Dalmatians Vans (read about those here) as they are hella comfortable! I can’t wait to rock them more in the summer, as I think my shoes for winter will have to start being my Jake Dr Martens (can read about those here), as I’ve been neglecting them a little lately.

Wanting: SLEEP! Lots of bloody sleep at that! I am constantly tired at the moment, and I don’t know why. On my days off work I plan to have a lie in, and I never have one. On days where I start work late I usually end up having my lie in then. I like waking up early to get things done… But I do love my sleep. As well as that I am lusting after Black Milk Clothing leggings, the fox ones… Which I have mentioned time and time again. I am still after them… YES! I am going to see about ordering them with my birthday money when my boyfriend comes back from holiday, but I’m not sure yet. They are a lot of money. Sadly. As well as that I am lusting after the new MAC Cosmetics Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks, especially shade Oh Lady… WHICH IS SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE! Soon… Soon.

Other than all those things I’ve been pretty chilled at the moment. I’m trying to sort my blog over the next month so that it can be better this year than ever before! I have recently changed my profile picture on the right (as I’m sure you can see) and I intend to do some more changes soon.

What are your currents at the moment? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and see you soon.
