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! πŸ˜› 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. The last time they played a tour in the UK was in 2003. I didn’t even know of them at that point! Since then the only times they have played in the UK are festivals, and I think that was only once at Download in 2009… Or at least around that time.

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 Β£15.00 each Dane was more into the idea. I was going to go all along anyway so yeah. πŸ˜›

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. πŸ˜›

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. πŸ˜›

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!

 photo 6_zpsjjto44wv.jpg

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… πŸ˜›

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. πŸ˜›

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 hadΒ 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.

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! πŸ˜›

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. πŸ˜›

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ˜› 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. πŸ˜›

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 Β 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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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

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!

The Geeky Girl Tag

Good morning all I hope you’re well! It’s nearly the weekend now and I thought it would be nice to do a tag post so that newer readers can get to know a little bit about me. As well as that a couple of weeks ago I hosted my first Twitter chat which went better than I could have hoped! It was geeky themed, so what better tag to take part in than a geeky one! πŸ˜€

I found this tag Β over on Marvel Steph’s blog. You can check out her answers on her post here.

So on with the tag!

1. What is your must-have tech gadget?
Got to be my iPhone 6. It just does so much stuff and I use it for so much of late including blog related work, shopping, talking with friends. What more do I need to say really?

2. Which house do you belong to in Hogwarts?
Urgh a Harry Potter question… I’m not a Harry Potter geek, not because it isn’t any good but just because I’m more into my Japanese related stuff, a big example being Pokemon. Whenever I’ve taken tests though online for fun I’m either Hufflepuff or Gryffindor.

3. Who is your favourite Doctor?
Urgh another question about something I have no interest in… I’m not a Doctor Who fan at all! It’s really not my thing. The only episode I have ever watched was the Adipose because they’re just so damn cute! πŸ˜€

4. If you could have dinner with any fictional character, who would it be?
I’d want to go and have tea and cake with the K-ON! girls and then watch them play some songs! ^_^

5. What is your gaming system of choice?
It differs really, I mostly use my 2DS but I play my PS4 and the Xbox One too. πŸ™‚

6. If you had a super power, what would it be?
I’d want to be able to disappear, like Simon’s power in Misfits.

7. What is your favourite fantasy world?
I love Bioshock so much for Rapture. It just looks so chilling and haunting but with a beautiful side to it. I also love steampunk fashion behind it. I love when Infinite came out because it gave a new environment to the series, and another gorgeous one at that.

8. If you could be any fictional race, what would you be?
I don’t think I’d be any to be honest… I like being human. πŸ˜›

Image taken from weheartit.com

9. Star Trek or Star Wars?
STAR WARS ALL THE WAY!

10. List your top 5 geektastic movies or TV Series.
Movies:
1. Deadpool.
2. Shaun of The Dead.
3. Star Wars.
5. Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit.
TV Series:
1. Stranger Things.
2. Black Mirror.
3. The IT Crowd.
4. Dexter.
5. South Park.

11. List your top 5 favourite video games.
1. Anything Pokemon.
2. South Park: The Stick of Truth.
3. The Lego games.
4. Minecraft.
5. Heavy Rain.

So that was the geeky girl tag! :DI tag all my fellow geeky blogger girls to take part! Please make sure to link your posts in the comments so I can read your answers. ^_^

Until next time take care all and have an awesome weekend! I know I will be, I’m seeing cKy tomorrow. πŸ˜€

April Favourites ’17

Easter holidays are over, all the chocolate eggs have been sold or are still on sale in the shops, and Mini Eggs won’t be back until New Year… This is the saddest thing for me. I fucking love Mini Eggs! πŸ˜›

But we’re into May now and happy May Day! I’m off work for a change and I intend to spend the day doing sod all and chilling out with Dane. I might make us sausage and mash… Love it!

ANYWAY! With a new month of course comes my monthly posts, including my favourites. April was a funny month, but I discovered a lot of new items this month gone and luckily stuff I needed… Not just buying for the sake of it. πŸ˜›

  • Imperial Leather Marshmallow Shower Cream.

I’ve used this in the past and I’m pretty sure it has featured on my monthly favourites before. It being featured on here again just shows what an amazing product it is! I actually forgot how good it was until I recently started using it again. It smells beautiful and leaves your skin not only smelling yummy but feeling lovely and soft too. For only a Β£1 you cannot go wrong!

  • Vaseline Lip Therapy with Cocoa Butter.

It’s shit to admit but my lips are STILL bad. Well they appear to be on the mend now and better than before but still bad… Urgh. I finally got some decent answers from two doctors recently and was given the right treatments. Alongside using the treatment creams I’ve also been slathering on this Vaseline in between applications to keep my lips nice and moist… Ew I hate that word but it’s the only word I can use right now and it be accurate. This tub is for around the house, as I bought an aloe vera one for out on the go and for work. I don’t like that one as much as the cocoa butter though to be honest. I find the smell to be fresh, but that doesn’t apply when on the lips. I feel like the cocoa butter scent is lovely both in the jar and when applied to the lips. You can never go wrong with cocoa butter to be fair! I love this better than the original Vaseline though to be honest! πŸ˜€

  • Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Gel.

I needed a new eye gel last month and wanted to make sure to get something that would cool my eyes whilst hydrating them throughout the day. I wouldn’t usually go for a low budget eye gel due to the whole, “It’s not going to do sod all…” but I thought for Β£1.50 it wouldn’t break the bank to give it a whirl! I hate eye creams and have always opted to buying gels if I can. This one is amazing and really does soothe and cool tired eyes either in the morning before work or after a long day in the evening. Either way I love this and I think I’ll end up buying another soon for mine and Dane’s holiday in September!

  • Barry M Molten Metal Nail Paint in shade Copper Mine.

When I was off work during April I decided to paint my nails as due to the job I do I’m not allowed to wear it whilst working. I have a couple of these Molten Metal polishes but this one is my favourite. I find the copper shade suits my yellow skin tone the best and it just looks gorgeous too. The formula is lovely and it lasts ages before chipping! Even whilst doing loads of work on the house last week it hardly chipped. This was without a top coat too! I’ll be reviewing these very soon as they deserve a review. I plan to get myself the new holographic shade that recently came out. These are on 2 for Β£7 at the moment so I’ll be getting that and another shade.

  • Radox Feel Heavenly Bath Soak with Coconut & Milk.

Finally we have a bubble bath on my monthly favourites. I still use my Lush products, don’t get me wrong but more often than not I find if I overuse them it actually causes more harm to my body than good. That and I try to make my money last at the moment. ANYWAY! This bath soak was bought on a whim that I wanted something nice and light to use on days off work and before bed. This is a gorgeous bubble bath where a little bit goes a long way, but I always add a generous amount to my bath to create LOADS of bubbles. I always find this leaves my skin lovely and soft after use. It’s amazing.

So now my beauty favourites are done, time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month!

Favourite TV Show – Sirens (UK version).

This is a show I recently started to re-watch. It was out YEARS ago… (looks on Wikipedia) Holy shit 2011 was when this show first aired. I feel old. Very old. ANYWAY! As the title may give away this show is about 3 paramedics and it shows what they get up to during their shifts. It also shows a couple of members of the Police and Fire Service too. This is fiction I’ll have you know and is actually a comedy. I love it so much though, it just makes me laugh. There are some serious notes in it however and with that it does remind me of Only Fools and Horses. One moment it can be side splitting funny and the next bringing a tear to your eye. If you’ve never watched it and you fancy giving it a go then I think you’re only options now are going to be watching it online for free, or as a shitty YouTube upload. I’m being naughty and watching it online for free… Hey! I’d buy it if I could!

Favourite Film – Your Name (Kimi no Na wa).

Last month me and Dane went to go and watch this after he found out it was showing in the Mockingbird cinema in Birmingham’s Custard Factory. He booked it that day and that evening we were off to watch it. Oh my God it wasn’t even what I was expecting it to be to be honest. I knew what the basic plot was for the film but it has a lot of twists and such throughout the film. I don’t want to talk too in depth as I worry it could spoil the film for anyone who hasn’t seen it. You can watch a trailer here if you like the sound of it. BUT to be honest if you haven’t heard about it by now, whether you’re an anime fan or not then where have you been hiding? It keeps being spoken about how it’s the best anime film for quite some time. πŸ˜›

Favourite Book – K-ON!

As regular readers of my blog will know I have been reading nothing but manga since the start of the year and whilst it is an expensive thing to keep on top of, it is so damn worth it! I recently purchased all of the K-ON manga to read and whilst I am only somewhat through the series, I am in love with it. It’s just great to see some of my new favourite anime characters come to life on the pages of the manga as well as through the anime series. I’ll be reviewing in the future!

Favourite Songs – George Michael “Freedom! 90” and “Careless Whisper”.

This is kind of random I suppose but a few nights ago I just started listening to songs from the 00’s… Which led to songs from the 90’s and for some reason that then led me to listen to some of George Michael’s best singles. Of course he died at the end of last year which was a real shame. He was a talented guy in every way! I have always had a place for “Freedom! 90” and I don’t know why… I especially love the music video as I think it’s so clever, alongside the song as a dig at the music industry. πŸ˜› Thanks to Deadpool now whenever I hear “Careless Whisper” I just think of Ryan Reynolds singing it at the end of the film. HA! πŸ˜› BUT instead of popping either of the songs mentioned above I thought I would attach Seether’s cover of “Careless Whisper”. It’s amazing in my eyes and they did a really good job!

Favourite game – TsumTsum.

This is a game I have owned for as long as I’ve had my iPhone 6 to be honest… I remember when I went on holiday with my dad in November 2015 playing it whenever we were near a WiFi connection! ANYWAY… This is a game I have been playing nonstop this month and it’s one I always forget that I love to play. It’s a game that you can actually pay to play in Japan as an actual arcade game. I would love to play it like that! I’ve attached a video above of Sharla playing it! It’s just a great, free and relaxing game to play. It’s one of those where you need to match up 3 plus of the same Disney character to get rid of them, get a high score, coins etc. With those coins you can buy new characters etc. If you love Disney and love the Tsum Tsum’s then you’ll love this!

So those were my favourites from April! I can’t believe how quickly the year is going by though to be perfectly honest. Next month me and Dane will have been in our house for a year and I don’t know if I like that or if it scares me a little. Time is going wayyyyy too fast and I don’t think I like that. It also means next month marks our four year anniversary which IS exciting and I don’t mind that. πŸ˜› It does feel like we’ve been together longer mind.

What products were you loving throughout April? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time take care all and I hope you have a lovely bank holiday Monday. I know I will be. πŸ˜›

I’m Hosting My First Twitter Chat!

Image taken from weheartit.com

Oh and it is so damn exciting! AHHHH!

GirlBoss Network recently put a tweet out there on their Twitter account (obvs!) asking for people to come and host chats for them. Of course I dropped them a tweet and asked if I could take part soon if not in the future. They said in the future at the time but the next day I got a message on Twitter asking if I could host this Sunday!

I’m a mixture of excited and nervous. I’ve never hosted a Twitter chat before so I’m nervous about not doing things I should be, or that my questions will be lame. Of course I am excited to take part in a chat that I’m hosting.

I love taking part in Twitter chats, especially blog related ones. It’s lovely to be able to talk and discover new bloggers through the chats. Of late I haven’t taken part in as many chats as I used to, but I intend to change that as of this week!

So, MY Twitter chat? What’s the topic going to be I hear you all ask? Well it’s going to be geek and nerd themed, OF COURSE!!!

I’m going to try and think of some questions from tonight now that the chat topic is set in stone.

The chat will be hosted for an hour and starts at 12pm this Sunday (20/04/17) over on my Twitter account @maybeecoffee

If you’re wondering what the Twitter handle is for GirlBoss Network, it’s here @GirlBoss_Net

So yeah I thought I’d share this exciting little bit of news today instead of a usual blog post!

If you have any questions to ask about the Twitter chat I’ll be hosting then please ask away in the comments down below or over at my Twitter account (@maybeecoffee).

I hope everyone’s weeks are going well so far! Me and Dane both have a week off work to get on with some finishing touches on the house, including the garden, hanging up some pictures, blah, blah, blah. OH and whilst I was mowing this grass this afternoon it started to snow… πŸ˜› It only went sunny AFTER it was finished. TYPICAL!!!

I’ll soon be writing a post about the artwork I have in the house, I’m so excited for that!

Would you guys like me to do a house tour next week if possible? Make sure to let me know!

Until next time take care all and have a lovely evening… Hopefully snow free! πŸ˜›

TV Shows I’m Loving At The Moment

Now I wouldn’t exactly call myself a coach potato but I feel like this is pretty much an accurate term for me lately. As of late after both me and Dane finish work we either sit and play games online with friends or binge watch various TV shows. Mostly the later though…

There just seems to be so many TV shows out lately with new series that we need to watch! There’s so many that almost everyday we have a new episode to catch up with. This sounds worse than it actually is… πŸ˜›

So come and have a read about what TV shows me and Dane have been binge watching lately. You never know, you may just get some inspiration for what you can watch yourselves. πŸ˜‰

  • RuPaul’s Drag Race – S9 (Netflix)

I’ve been a fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race for as long as I can remember and as soon as a new season comes out I always make sure to keep up with the episodes. Spoilers are one of the reasons why, but it’s mostly due to wanting to keep up with which queen(s) are doing the best. I’ve always watched the show with Dane, which is really nice to be honest! I didn’t think he would be interested in giving it a go due to what it’s all about, but he loves it! My favourite in this season so far is Nina Bonina Brown. This being said though I’m not a massive fan of season 9 so far… It just seems like the queens don’t give much of a shit, or give too much of a shit. No one is really standing out right now for me. I just hope someone does soon! I want another Jinxx Monsoon! She’s my favourite queen! For the first time in the UK this is available on Netflix as and when a new episode airs. I used to have to look online for videos to watch when it came to getting my RuPaul new show fix!

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid – S1 (Crunchyroll and Funimation)

Out of all of these TV shows being mentioned in this post this is definitely one of my favourites. I’ve mentioned this show on my blog before. It’s about a dragon who is pretty much adopted by by a human and who falls in love with said human. More dragons come to the human world, another one who comes to live with them and others who live with other humans. It’s a very funny show and heart warming at the same time. I’ve started to read the manga of it and it is amazing!

  • Attack On Titan – S2 (Crunchyroll)

Both me and Dane have been waiting what feels like forever for season 2 of Attack On Titan to come out! We both love the show and we’ve been worried that the next season would never come out. It’s been out for a couple of weeks now and it’s amazing. Dane pretty much knows the basics of what is going to happen due to reading the manga. I haven’t yet read the manga for Attack On Titan and I’m unsure when and if I will. If you loved the first season of Attack On Titan then make sure to watch this season!

  • 13 Reasons Why – S1 (Netflix exclusive)

On this list this has to be my favourite one on the list! As soon as me and Dane watched the trailer for this on Netflix we knew that we would want to watch it! It’s based off a novel of the same name and the show is said to be loads better! The show is about Hannah, a girl who has committed suicide and records 13 tapes explaining why she killed herself. It’s an emotional roller coaster and to be honest it made me feel really low at the end of it. It’s an amazing show though and one I recommend everyone to watch as soon as possible! I might pick the book up in the future to read if I fancy it. This is a Netflix exclusive so if you want to watch it you need to have a Netflix account… Or you can be naughty and find it online to watch.

  • K-ON! – S1 and S2 (DVD)

Like Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid this is another one of my favourite TV shows on this list. Dane recently became interested in watching K-ON! and popped it on for us both to watch one day. Since then we have been hooked and it’s definitely become a massive new love for us both. We haven’t finished watching season 2 yet, but I’ll be sad when we do however. I was going to buy Dane all of the seasons on DVD as well as the film on blu-ray but I left it in the end. I’m sure we’ll buy them on our week off together next week. I’ve bought all of the manga of K-ON! and I’m loving it so far!

  • Masamune-kun’s Revenge – S1 (Crunchyroll and Funimation)

This is a show I have loved and then been bored with… Which is strange! Dane has felt the same way about it as well. We usually stop watching things we get bored with, like anyone would be to honest. The only reason we have kept on with it is because we have watched so much of it already. It just doesn’t feel like it is going anywhere right now and we’re about 10 episodes in. I was going to buy the manga of it to read but I am so bloody glad I haven’t… This show just doesn’t feel like it’s going to have a decent outcome. This being said it is good… But I don’t recommend it. I would recommend all the other shows on this list more!

  • Peter Kay’s Car Share – S1 and S2 (BBC iPlayer)

This is one I haven’t really watched with Dane. He’s not particularly interested in stuff like this and although I’m not a MASSIVE fan I do love this show! It reminds me of the summer I was at university studying my MA and when Dane practically lived with me for 3 weeks whilst my family was away on holiday. It was lovely and pretty much a test drive for what it would be like if we lived together. So when season 2 came out recently I had to watch it as soon as possible! As the title suggests it’s about a car share. He drives and his colleague keeps him company in the car. You see their relationship grow from just colleagues to friends, to possibly something more. I was disappointed to learn after watching episode 4 that that was it… No more episodes for season 2. I mean what the fuck Peter Kay?! I say this due to how the last episode of season 2 ends. I can’t say anything without giving away any spoilers, but it’s a mixture of really shit and the perfect cliffhanger. Both season 1 and 2 are on BBC iPlayer at the moment so go and check them out if you’re interested.

  • Eromanga Sensei – S1 (Crunchyroll)

This is a new anime to be added to Crunchyroll recently and it’s one people either love or hate due to what it’s about. I’m watching it for a mixture of reasons. 1. The main female character is so fucking adorable and 2. I like the fact that she’s a manga cartoon artist and that her brother (the main male character) is a manga/light novel writer. These are both the sorts of job roles and creative talents I give my characters when I write. The part about the show that is riling people up is the fact that the two main characters are siblings (well adopted siblings…) and they’re meant to have a relationship together… Awkward… This aspect doesn’t appeal to me at all but the story line otherwise really does. It’s only 2 episodes in at the moment so I’ll see how it goes, but so far this relationship side hasn’t really shown. A few creepy bits have though… Otherwise it’s pretty funny at the moment and I’m enjoying it.

So those are some TV shows I’m loving right now! I feel like I have a show a day to catch up on, which is really sad but it gives me something to look forward to after work I suppose!

It’s not on this list but I’m currently watching Sirens, which aired on Channel 4 6 years ago! WOW I FEEL OLD!!! What TV shows are you loving and binge watching right now? Are you watching anything that’s on my list? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time take care all and I hope you had a lovely Easter and are equally having a lovely week.

Y U NO REVIEW?

I legit made this meme just for this post today! Oh what a sad loser I am. πŸ˜›

So regular readers are probably wondering why I haven’t written a review since my Barry M liquid lipstick one in February (link here if you wish to read it), well I’ll tell you.

The main reason I haven’t written any for a while is due to my lips and how fucking sore they have been the past two months. I have mentioned in previous posts how I have had really sore lips and how it was cold sores, alas this wasn’t the case.

After months of trying to get appointments at my doctors and various tubes of lip balm I FINALLY got an answer for what is wrong with my lips, as well as some medication for it.

I haveΒ angular cheilitis which is basically another term for sore and dry lips. HOWEVER mine is so bad it has turned into an infection and I’m not using fungal cream to get rid of it. Urgh. I can’t complain though, at least it is starting to heal… Well I hope anyway!

Sadly it appears to have been caused by stress, so I’m hoping when it has healed and gone away that it won’t come back. I am constantly stressed at the moment, which in turn sucks. 😦

So this is why I haven’t been able to review lip products, but it has also prevented me from reviewing any face products due to either not feeling comfortable taking pictures for posts, or I’ve worried about using certain products in case they caused the sores to flare up and get worse. Example of this being face masks, which I have wanted to review for AGES now.

I know this sounds like a huge excuse but the sores on my lips are pretty ugly to look at and due to them I haven’t felt all that confident in my looks lately. Both me and Dane recently discovered Snapchat on an evening out with some friends when they were showing us all the pictures they had taken with the filters. We now love playing with the filters together when we’re at home. We don’t use it otherwise to be honest. Due to being able to hide behind these filters most of the pictures I have shown off online had been of me as a bunny.

I have just honestly lost my confidence in my appearance since these sores came on my lips… Not that I had loads of confidence to begin with. I mean, how do I know someone isn’t thinking, “Urgh what the fuck is going on with her lips? She got herpes?” or even as cringey or crude as it may be for some to read, “Fuck she’s sucked some infected cock if she has sores like that on her lips!”

No this is not even the case and although I doubt most will be thinking these things, some will! People do think things like this.

The sores may also make me look unclean, which I’m definitely not! I’m a cleanaphobe and I like to try and stay as clean as possible, especially if it means I’m leaving the house. I have a wash everyday and if I don’t it’s because I’m not well enough to or I feel like crap. These days are VERY rare.

So that is the main reason I haven’t been reviewing anything lately. I like to take pictures with me wearing/using the products most of the time and due to the sores it has put me off taking any pictures and thus not reviewing anything.

I know I don’t have to show my face when reviewing certain things but I like to do just that to be honest. I like to show off how a lip products looks on my lips and the same goes with showing off how a face mask looks too. I don’t see why more bloggers DON’T do just that to be fair.

As well as not feeling and looking all that well, I haven’t really had much time to write review(s) due to the shifts I’m currently working and I haven’t felt all that great mentally… But that’s for another blog post.

This one I have pretty much rambled! Until my lips are good again I won’t be able to do any beauty reviews, HOWEVER I will be trying to write some reviews for films, anime and manga.

I want to try and make my content more geek and nerd themed because that is who I am and I don’t want to just become a beauty blogger. I want to get the hashtag going for geeky and nerdy bloggers too!

If you’re one of those make sure to drop me a hi over on my Twitter account @maybeecoffee so we can chat all things geeky and awesome!

Sorry again for the ranty post, but I just wanted to set the record straight as to why I haven’t written any reviews lately.

On that note! What would you like me to review? Lip products? Face powder? Perfume? Lush? What? Tell me and I’ll see what I can get up on my blog soon.

Until next time take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week.

April Wish List ’17

Another new month means another new wish list and boy was this month hard to put together. Although I’ve been naughty recently and bought quite a bit of manga, I’ve also been really good and bought sod all else! No make up, no clothes, no stickers or badges or cups or any other random rubbish! Just manga, which I’m happy about, and I’m pretty sure the same is going to happen this month too. My wish list this month isn’t huge, but it’s enough for me. πŸ˜›

  • Sugarpill Cosmetics Pretty Poison Lipstick in shade Dark Sided – Β£16.00 (link)

As of yet I haven’t bought a Sugarpill product but I really would love to try the lipsticks! They sound beautiful and they definitely look it. They recently released their Pretty Poison lipsticks, which are dark and all gorgeous shades! They’re also limited edition, ahhhh! There are four shades altogether and I’m after the purple shade which is called Dark Sided. I love my purple lipsticks and would love a dark yet creamy purple lipstick in my collection. This being said I am trying to stop buying lip products this year as I have WAY TOO MANY. We shall see…

  • Good Smile Company Nendoroid Star Wars Boba Fett – Β£43.99 (link)

As regular readers will know I LOVE Nendoroid figures, as does Dane and we’ve been collecting them for three years this year now. We have a lovely collection growing and we both just want to add more and more to it. We pre-ordered the Deadpool Nendoroid and now my new pre-order is set on Boba Fett. I don’t know why but I’ve always loved his character since I was a kid. I think it’s due to how calm and collected he is, yet determined. This being said he’s still a bit of a wimp. I mean come on Boba Fett, your death? REALLY?! Ahem… This Nendoroid figure of him is gorgeous! It’s very well made and even comes with a carbonite Han Solo too.

  • K-ON! Group Notebook – Β£8.80 (link)

I recently discovered the anime K-ON thanks to Dane and I REALLY love it! Since watching the first season I really want to read the manga, grab some cute merchandise and try to grab all the Nendoroids! I found this cute notebook on Crunchyroll and would love to have it to keep in my car to jot blog ideas on during my breaks at work and when out on the go.

  • NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in shade Twilight – Β£9.00 (link)

Before any regular readers get excited that I’ll be experimenting with more make up, that won’t be the case sadly… πŸ˜› I’ve seen loads of people experimenting with highlighters lately to make their lipsticks pop. This is something I REALLY want to do and I’ve been on the lookout for a powder like this for ages. I haven’t as of yet seen anything like this in store, but they do it online so eventually I’ll be picking this up to try, if not a duplicate at a cheaper price. It’s a gorgeous white powder with a blue shimmer. AMAZING!

  • Tony Moly Panda’s Dream So Cool Eye Stick – Β£8.30 (link)

I love Korean beauty and I’m always craving more and more products from there, especially brands such as Tony Moly and Etude House. I already have the brightening eye base and when my current eye cream runs out, I’d love to give this a go! I’ve heard great things about it and with the warmer weather coming up it’d be nice to use during the warm clammy days.

  • K-ON! manga Volumes 1-4 – Β£7.99 (link)

As I mentioned above I’ve really gotten into the K-ON anime so I would love to read the manga too! There’s only four volumes so it’s not going to break the bank either, which is good. This manga is said to be disliked by fans of the anime as it’s nothing like it. I still want to give it a go though and see how I get on! It’s meant to be in a similar style to Azumanga Daioh, which is one of the first manga books I read. I want to order these now but I’ll definitely wait until I finish some of my other manga books first.

So that was my wish list for this month! I apologise that it wasn’t anything special or heavily beauty or fashion related. I’m starting to realise that I need to be more realistic when it comes down to writing my monthly wish list posts. I’m currently on a “spending ban” and not buying stuff I don’t need. The only exceptions are books and Nendoroids… Oh and any beauty stuff I actually do need. E.g. Clinique goodies for my skincare routine.

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

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