March Favourites ’18

Happy Easter everyone! I do apologise that this post is a day late (well I’m being naughty and putting it up as if it was actually on time… ;P) but it was my first Easter that I’ve had a 4 day weekend and not had to work! I also spent it chilling with Dane, as well as with friends and family which is the best way to spend it.

Now I’m finally getting the chance to work on my monthly favourites whilst I watch some gaming YouTube videos. Finally, here are my favourites for March!

  • Palmolive Naturals Milk & Honey Shower Gel Cream.

Not long ago I picked up this HUGE pump shower gel cream and I only got it for £2.00/£2.50 from Morrison’s on a food shop and at first I regretted it but this was near to half price so I was pretty happy at the bargain I grabbed. ANYWAY I started using this at the start of the month and it’s lasting agggges! You only need a little and it foams up gorgeously as well as leaving you smelling amazing and feeling lovely and soft. The milk and honey Palmolive shower cream reminds me of Fuerteventura for various reasons, the main one being back in the day when we first had the house there we took loads of “home comforts” and this was one of mine that my mom bought for me, so the scent always reminds me of my younger years there. Now it’s coconut scents that do it for me! 😛

  • Diesel Loverdose Eau de Parfum.

I’ve been using my Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet EDT for what feels like forever and halfway through March I decided it was time to start using something else, something that I love to the moon and back. Loverdose by Diesel is one of my favourite perfumes and this is actually my second bottle now! It reminds me of my best friend Jacqui as when it first came out she got a bottle for her birthday and showed me it. Now when I wear it it reminds me of her. It has a unique fragrance and reminds me of a mixture of liquorice (which is actually contains!) and tequila. If you’ve never given this gorgeous perfume a sniff, then get on it! Even if you don’t like liquorice, you’ll love this. 😛

  • Collection Velvet Kiss Moisturising Lip Cream in shade Rosie.

Whilst on a quick shopping trip to Superdrug in March I was having a nose around the Collection stand for my staple eyebrow gel and noticed the lip creams. I used to use these back in the day when they first launched and during the summer months I used these to death! I decided it was time to pick up a new one, but instead of going to the shades I used to use (Cotton being one of them) I decided to pick up the red shade Rosie. I love wearing red lipsticks and I actually haven’t worn lipstick properly for months. Since buying this I’ve used it about a handful of times alone and with a lip liner and it’s so good! It lasts ages and feels so comfortable when wearing it. I’ll definitely be reviewing this in April. You can check out the review one of the old shades Fairy Cake here for the time being.

  • Nails inc Nail Polish in shade Dream Dust.

I feel like I haven’t worn my unicorn Nails inc polishes for ages! So I decided to grab Dream Dust to wear every other week throughout the month and throughout Easter. I forgot what a gorgeous shade Dream Dust is to be honest with you. It’s a shimmer gold glitter with a mauve base shade. It’s so shimmery and is definitely an awkward shade to remove but whatever! It’s a shade you can wear throughout the summer, especially for holidays! This lasts a long time too so I’ll definitely make a habit of wearing it more often at work. I loved Nails inc polishes back in the day when I was a student but then I sort of fell out of love with them. Since picking up the Beauty of Dreams gift set before Christmas last year (you can read about it here!) I’ve realised that Nails inc are still an amazing nails polish brand, if not even better now than they used to be!

  • L’Oreal Hair Expertise Sleek Smooth Intense Shampoo.

I recently started using a new shampoo and this is actually the same if not similar to one I use when I’m in Fuerteventura (which you can see here) as it’s just one of the best and affordable! When I came home I searched for this shampoo straight away and bought that as well as another type of sulphate-free shampoo. Since starting to use this shampoo my hair has felt so smooth and looked less frizzy too. I’m so glad I started being sulphate free with shampoos this past year as it’s really helped my hair and to be honest since finding budget friendly shampoos, it’s helped my wallet too. 😛 I really recommend the L’Oreal sulphate free shampoos if you want to give this type of stuff a go as they’re super cheap from Superdrug and more often then not, on offer too.

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

Favourite TV Show – Violet Evergarden.

I feel like I’ve mentioned this anime on my blog in the past and I’m pretty sure it was when Dane wrote a post on here with me not long ago (you can read it here). He introduced me to this anime when it first started but like he always has a habit of doing, he got me to start watching it at episode 3. I watched a couple of episodes but I just couldn’t feel like I was getting into it. Then a couple of weeks ago he said he’d watched episode 10 and that I needed to as well. We started watching the anime together from beginning to episode 11 and oh man, I have fallen in love with the show. Every single episode is also heartbreaking and I was silently crying at most if not all of the episodes. I’ll copy and paste the synopsis as I’m awful when writing what stuff is about without worrying of ruining it!

Synopsis (source: Anime Expo) – There are words Violet heard on the battlefield, which she cannot forget. These words were given to her by someone she holds dear, more than anyone else. She does not yet know their meaning. A certain point in time, in the continent of Telesis. The great war which divided the continent into North and South has ended after four years, and the people are welcoming a new generation. Violet Evergarden, a young girl formerly known as “the weapon,” has left the battlefield to start a new life at CH Postal Service. There, she is deeply moved by the work of “Auto Memories Dolls,” who carry people’s thoughts and convert them into words.

If you fancy giving this anime a go you can find it over on Netflix where it’s in English. It’s being aired at the same time as in Japan, which is amazing. It’s such a beautiful anime both in the way it looks as well as the story line.

Favourite Film – 10 Cloverfield Lane.

I remember going to the cinema to watch Cloverfield and all the rumours around it of people running out of the cinema to be sick due to the motion controls of the camera. FYI I was fine. 😛 I loved the film at the time and have since then watched it about a handful of times. When 10 Cloverfield Lane was announced I wanted to go and watch it, but no one else was really arsed. Years later it was put up on Netflix and me and Dane decided to give it a go. This is a film that really keeps you on the edge of your seat for various different things! You’re constantly wondering what is happening outside, as well as inside the bunker that the three characters are staying in. You have some awesome character development which is quickly snatched away from you by the time you start getting to know them and liking them. If you haven’t watched 10 Cloverfield Lane, then I definitely recommend it!

I Am A Hero Omnibus Volume 1 by Kengo Hanazawa

I Am A Hero Omnibus Volume 2 by Kengo Hanazawa

Favourite Book – I Am A Hero Omnibus Vol. 1 and 2.

This was one (well technically two) of the presents I got Dane for Christmas just gone and after he read Vol. 1 he gave it to me to show me some awesome scenes in the book. I checked them out and as it was halfway through the manga I decided to give it a read for myself and now I’ve ended up reading more than Dane has considering he’s only read the first volume and I’ve now read both the omnibus volumes he owns. It’s about a zombie apocalypse that hits Japan, with our “hero” being an anxious manga artist who sees things late at night and dreams of being a huge manga artist once again. It’s so well drawn and very realistic, you’re just hooked on it and want to keep reading. I actually finished the second omnibus volume in almost two hours… FYI it is a huge book! That and I’m a slow reader. 😛 Hopefully he won’t read this post but I intend to get Dane the rest of the omnibus volumes for his birthday.

Favourite Song/Album – Various…

Meh I wasn’t really sure what music to mention on my blog this month as I’ve just been listening to all sorts really… Mostly stuff I’ve heard on the radio at work, as well as some oldies I love. I’ll post above some of the songs I’m loving and quickly why below.

Dua Lipa – New Rules – I don’t know what it is that I love about this song and originally I was into an 80’s remix I heard on the radio first. I just find the song is really catchy and Dua Lipa has a lovely singing voice too.

Joyce Manor – Make Me Dumb – I first heard this game on Forza Horizon 3 as Dane bought it aggggges ago to play on his Xbox One and since then I’ve loved it! It’s such a catchy and upbeat rock song and due to that I just had to have it on my iPod for drives to and from places.

Paloma Faith – Crybaby – I don’t know what it is about this song but I love EVERYTHING about it! Paloma Faith is an artist I’ve listened to more of since 2016 and her voice is amazing, as well as her lyrics. This song is one that you’d listen to when you feel like crap and you need some encouraging words to listen to. It’s not a slow sad song, it’s an upbeat “pull yourself together, it’ll be okay” type song and I think that’s what I love the most about it.

Favourite Game – Miitopia.

YES FOR ONCE IT ISN’T PERSONA 5 ON MY LIST! Sorry I love Persona 5 so it will come up a lot on here… In fact be prepared to hear about it next month as the anime series for it starts in less than a week now! 😀 Anyway… I got myself a new 2DS XL recently (which I’ll be writing about at some point on my blog) and I feel like since picking this up, I’ve been picking up my DS a hell of a lot more now I have a new one. I’m going to put it down to the screens being shit loads bigger and better at that! I picked up this game the day before I flew to Fuerteventura in September last year and Dane loved the look of it so much he got himself a copy too! Basically you play the hero and an evil guy has come and taken everyone’s faces, so you need to go and fight him and his minions to get them back. As the name suggests, it’s based on your Mii’s, the little customised characters you create on your 3DS and Wii, I don’t think the Switch has really bothered with it. I was close to finishing it before we came back from Fuerteventura but never did. HOWEVER, since picking up my 2DS XL I’ve played more and oh man, I forgot how much I love it! It’s an RPG game but it’s such a lax one at that, which is why I love it so much. Basically if you loved Tamodachi Life on the 3DS and you love RPG’s then you will love this! They do have a demo on the Nintendo eShop so check it out.

PHEW finally I have my favourites from March written down and done! I swear I can’t believe how quickly the year is going already and it’s my last day off of the Easter holidays too. SAD TIMES! 😛

I’m off to go and chill out, whilst attempting to eat some of my chocolate eggs. I bought myself one this year and received one from my manager as well as Dane’s parents. I’m not a massive chocolate person, so my chocolate eggs will probably last months. 😛

How many chocolate eggs did you get for Easter? Also, what are your favourites from March? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and Happy Easter!

March Wish List ’18

Another month has come and gone and yes, I know February is a short month anyway BUT BLOODY HELL! I can’t believe it is March! I’m excited though for spring this year, which I’ll be writing a blog post about VERY soon! 😀

This months wish list was very hard to write as at the moment there isn’t really anything I’m wanting for. I’ve made a naughty purchase this month already, which I’m hoping to also write a blog post about soon!

Until then, you’ll just have to deal with my Marsh wish list post! I hope you enjoy. 🙂

  • Honey Punch Oversized Cardigan In Rainbow Stripe – (link)

If any regular readers have been watching my blog since before Christmas you’ll have seen that I was lusting after a duplicate cardigan of the rainbow one from Lazy Oaf. When Lazy Oaf brought out their version it went crazy online and sold out super quick. I was gutted I never got the chance to even contemplate buying one, but for £75 HELL TO THE NO. I then went out looking for fakes from China… Which I don’t really want either. On a random search on ASOS I found this awesome one by Honey Punch! It’s distressed on the bottom and oversized. I actually prefer this one to the Lazy Oaf one and it’s half of the price! Sadly it’s currently sold out in the size I am/want so I’ll be waiting for it to come back in stock and as soon as it does, I’ll be ordering! Since starting my office job I LIVE in cardigans now and I’d love to rock a rainbow one to work.

  • Pandora You and Me Ring – (link)

This ring came out as part of the Valentine’s Day collection, which is around the time I noticed it on the website. It’s so gorgeous but at first it did make me wonder if it was an engagement ring… It’s not. 😛 I really, REALLY want this ring but I’m trying to save money right now and just buy things that don’t cost much or things I REALLY want. If that makes sense… Either way I was tempted to pick this up this month as a treat to myself but I’m going to wait. Mine and Dane’s 5th anniversary will be here before I know it and I know he wants to get me a piece of jewellery in the future so we shall see what happens.

  • New Look Tall Red Ditsy Floral Soft Touch Skater Dress – (link)

Okay I probably don’t class as being “tall” (I’m 5’5 so I’m “average”) but I’m finding lately when I buy dresses they can come up short, which is frustrating! I want to start buying tall skirts and dresses if possible and of course if they look good. I would love some new dresses for work as although I’m loving what I have right now, I do want some fresh pieces for the spring and summer months. I love wearing red and this looks gorgeous for the money! I may not get it this month but I’ll keep my eyes peeled on it for the future.

  • Orange: The Complete Collection: 1 Manga (link)

I love manga so every month whenever a new volume comes out of a series I’m reading, I’ll order! But this month I want to pick up something new to read, Orange being one of them! I’ve heard nothing but good things about both the anime and the manga. I would buy both collection 1 and 2 but I want to try and keep being good, so I’ll only order this one for now and get the next one next month.

  • New Look Black Crepe Scuba Pinafore Dress – (link)

Again, another dress for work. I’m really into pinafore dresses at the moment but I haven’t really had a good look for anything right now! I really want one for work to team up with my long sleeved striped t-shirts! I love the look of this one from New Look as it looks so comfortable. I’d team it up with tights and a nice pair of flats for a chilled look. I wouldn’t say no to a thick chunky cardigan too when days are a little on the chilly side!

  • Sass & Belle Lima Llama Trinket Dish (link)

I really NEED a trinket dish for my jewellery at the moment as now I’m wearing it daily it just pretty much sits on my dressing table, which isn’t the nicest way to treat Pandora and Thomas Sabo now, is it? I had my eye on a Pusheen trinket dish last month and recently spied a cute bunny one from Asda, BUT llamas are kind of doing it for me right now… When me and Dane got the house we went out and bought little bits and pieces for the house, one of these being a llama planter. Nearly 2 years later and I STILL haven’t put anything in it. Instead it sits empty of my bedroom shelf. Last month I picked us up a new washing basket, which has llamas all over it! So why not add to this obvious llama themed for upstairs by getting a trinket dish? I just want something to keep my bracelets, necklace and ring on really.

So those are all the items on my wish list this month! I could have included more manga but I’ve already ordered it/plan to now I’m paid!

What items do you have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

March Favourites ’17

Wow it’s April already? I know I say this every month of every year but this year really is going fast already. It’s April now and with this month comes Dane’s birthday as well as us having some time off of work to do some stuff to the house. I can’t wait for mine and Dane’s week off together to be honest.

So it’s time for me to talk about my favourites from March, yay! AND don’t forget I now talk about lifestyle favourites every month now too. Double yay!

  • NSpa Fruit Extracts Strawberry Shower and Bath Gel.

I recently picked up this shower and bath gel on a random visit to Asda. I love the NSpa products and have never faulted them for their products, especially the shower and bath gels. I’ve tried various flavours but I’d never seen the strawberry one until that visit. We snapped it up straight away and both gave it a go in the shower the next morning. Oh my it is amazing! It smells just like strawberry lace sweeties which Dane loved. It reminds me of The Body Shop strawberry shower gel but this isn’t as nice. BUT I did find that this one is more moisturing! It’s also BRIGHT RED which is amazing, especially if you pop it into the bath. It smells amazing first thing in the morning and really wakes and perks you up for the day ahead. I definitely recommend giving it a go if you love strawberry flavoured things.

  • Blistex Relief Cream.

I mentioned last month in my February favourites (which you can read here) that my lips are suffering quite a lot lately and are constantly sore, uncomfortable and splitting. Since buying this lip cream it’s not been so bad, BUT my lips are still very sore and splitting. I’m going to blame stress and being in the cold quite a lot at work right now. If it doesn’t go though in the next week I’ll be going to the doctors as it’s becoming a joke now. It isn’t cold sores, it’s just weird. xD

  • Marc Jacobs Oh Lola EDP.

I recently dug this out of my perfume box recently and I actually forgot how much I love the scent. It’s very floral and refreshing and not only does it remind me of summer days, but also of Bristol, where me and Dane went for our first anniversary together. I think when this is finished I’ll be repurchasing it in the future. I want to get through quite a bit of my perfume collection at the moment so I can try some new scents.

  • Superdrug Refreshing Hydrogel Eye Patches.

I found these in Superdrug of late when buying my mom’s Mother’s Day present and I couldn’t pass up the chance to give them a go. I bought three as they were on a 3 for 2 offer and they don’t break the bank at almost £1.50 each. I’ve given two of them a go so far and they really do help if you have tired eyes. I haven’t found they help my dark circles but they don’t really claim to help with this. I’m currently working very early shifts right now so after a tired week of that these really do help when used before bed. I leave them on for a good 15-20 minutes whilst reading a book or playing with an app on my phone. Lovely!

  • St.Ives Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub.

I mentioned this back in August on my favourites and I’m mentioning it again because I was recently reminded how good it is. I have always used it with a wet face and hands and although it did scrub my skin and leave it feeling lovely and soft, I didn’t feel like it was leaving me as soft as I wanted to be. However I recently tried it without wetting my face and hands and I find that it works so much better! You are supposed to use it on wet skin but meh. Although I have sensitive skin I don’t scrub too hard and don’t have any issues. It leaves my skin feeling baby soft and gorgeous. My love for this scrub has been renewed!

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

Favourite TV Show – K-On

Dane recently introduced me to K-On, an anime about a group of high school girls who meet through the band club at school. You see them as they all develop as a band and how they do with their music. We’ve now finished season one and are soon to start season two. I love it so much! All the girls are adorable and the songs throughout the show are catchy and right up my street. My favourite character is Mio, the bass player who is the mature one of the group, but who is also scared of most things, especially singing on stage. 😛 I love her for that, as well as her being a left handed bass player like myself.

Favourite Film – A Silence Voice

I was so excited to go and watch this anime film! I wanted to book the first showing with Dane but sadly due to him working we weren’t able to. It looked like we had lost our only chance to go and watch this in the cinema but with a random Google search I found out they were doing one showing at The Electric in Birmingham. I booked it straight away and not long after I did it had sold out. This is definitely one of my favourite films of the year (including Logan) and I wish I could go and watch it again! I’ve attached the trailer above so you can see what it’s like.

Favourite Book – A Silent Voice

I had wanted to read the manga of this whilst I was reading Your Lie in April, as it was advertised at the end of each volume. I had already bought the first two volumes before we went to watch the anime film version, however just before going to watch it I ended up buying all seven volumes as I knew I wanted to read the rest after reading the first two. It has fast turned into my favourite manga series and I cannot wait to write a blog post about it as well as the anime when I finish the series. It’s about Shoya a cocky school boy who becomes a bully when deaf girl Shoko joins his class. She ends up leaving the school and he’s left on his own as a punishment for his actions by the rest of the children in his class. Years later he learns sign language so he can apologise for his actions years previously and from there we see how their friendship grows, as well as many more. It is a beautiful manga and one I recommend everyone to read.

Favourite Song – Sex Whales & Phantom Sage – One Day.

I LOVE songs that are brought out by NCS for so many reasons! Most of them I find are of the chilled electronic style which I love and are free to use. I can’t recall where I heard this song, but I’m pretty sure it was from a blogger or YouTuber. Either way it’s amazing and very chilled, something I can see me blasting throughout the summer both at home as well as on the move. I’m hoping to start doing YouTube videos this year and NCS songs are what I’d be using on any future videos.

Favourite Game – ???

Erm I can’t lie I haven’t played any games this month… Most of my time has been focused on reading manga in all honesty… Is that bad? 😛 I really do need to pick up Pokemon Moon again though! As well as some of my Lego games. We did buy Lego Worlds when it was released and whilst Dane loves it, I’m not a huge fan. I’m not used to playing Lego games like that and as silly as it sounds it creeped me out a tad. 😛

So those were my favourites from March. It was hard to think of stuff I loved this month apart from the shower and bath gel and the Blistex cream. Only because I just didn’t take much notice really. That and due to my lips being sore lip products other than balms or creams are a no no, which makes me very sad. 😦

What were you loving throughout March? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

March Wish List 17

I should really call this wish list the “Japanese and geeky shit” wish list as apart from the two 101 Dalmatians mugs that’s pretty much all it is!

I’m not going to lie I haven’t made this months picture for my wish list look all that great… It just looks so clumpy and I hate it. BUT I blame all the manga books I put into it. I mean come on there’s 7 volumes clumped together there! 😛

So I’ll just run with my wish list this month. I am still on my spending ban however and if I buy anything off of it it’ll be the manga as currently manga is quite a big percentage of my life right now.

  • Pokemon Center Easter Pikachu Plush (Sadly no link right now and prices vary)

This collection was announced not long ago and as soon as I saw this little cutie I just fell in love! I know it’s childish but I need her in my Pokemon collection so badly. I just love how it isn’t in your face Easter either. The cute little flower crown and kawaii eyes. You cannot go wrong! I don’t know how big this is though, but I would like to think it’s a decent size.

  • A Silent Voice manga Vol. 1-7  – £8.99 each (link)

This is a manga I discovered through looking at the adverts in the back of Your Lie in April manga books. It’s about a deaf girl who starts at a new school and is bullied by one boy in the class and his friends. She leaves and years lately he’s being bullied himself for what he did to her. He bumps into her and learns how to say sorry in sign language. From there they become close and I think it’s a whole love thing. I love manga like this and when I heard that it had been made into an anime movie it made me happy! It’s out this month and me and Dane are going to try and see it at the cinema. I’ve linked the trailer above.

  • Disney Store Disney Animators’ Collection 101 Dalmatians Mug – £8.99 (link)

I love Disney mugs and even though I don’t need anymore (nor do I have the room for them!) I would still love to get more of these. I just like being able to have a nice collection in my cupboard, especially considering most of my Disney mugs are 101 Dalmatians related. This one is really nice and it looks huge! I like how Pongo and Perdy are the main characters on the mug with sketches of their puppies around the rest of it. I’ll definitely be having a look at this mug when I go into a Disney Store next.

  • Sword Art Online Progressive manga Vol. 5 – £9.99 (link) (OUT 21/3/17)

Another manga and a volume I’ve been waiting to have come out for about a year now! It won’t be out until the end of the month but it’ll be worth the wait, especially as I’ll pre order it when I get paid next week. I love Sword Art Online and I especially love the Progressive manga, which focuses around Asuna instead of Kirito. I just hope they don’t wait another year for the next volume to come out…

  • Pokemon Center Easter Pikachu Phone Case (Sadly no link right now and prices vary)

This is probably the main thing I actually really want (besides from manga!) on my wish list this month! The Pokemon Center phone cases are amazing and very sturdy for what they are. Plus how cute does the Pikachu look on it? I mean COME ON?! The only issue I am having with it at the moment is the price… I’ve found that it’s been a tad pricey on places like eBay. We’re saying between £30-£50 which is of course a joke! I love my Redbubble Mew case that Dane bought me and that only cost about £20. We shall see what happens basically….

  • Disney Store 101 Dalmatians Glazed Mug – £9.99 (link)

Finally we come to another 101 Dalmatians mug and one I have mentioned before on my blog. This one isn’t as nice at the other in my opinion but of course I still want it for the same reasons as the other. I would want to buy myself one of these mugs and one for Dane so that we sort of match. But even so these mugs with the glaze on the bottom are really sturdy from when I’ve seen them in store beforehand. You can’t go wrong with a sturdy mug! 😛

So that’s my wish list for this month! As I mentioned before I am still on my spending ban and don’t really intend to buy anything I don’t need. I have been a little naughty on and off this past month but meh. I’m not as bad as I was before so it’s not going all too badly. 😛

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

Until next time take care all and have a lovely weekend.

March ’16 Favourites

Hello April, where did you come from? This year really is flying by, and quite frankly I’m pretty happy about that right now… But I can’t say why yet. 😛 SORRY (not sorry)!

 photo March Favs_zpsjoz3h9xo.jpg

  • Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola! EDP (link)

I bought this perfume nearly two years ago when I went to Bristol for a long weekend for our first anniversary. I had wanted it for ages, so when I picked it up for a bargain I was super pleased! It’s a lovely light scent, which lasts agggges! I’ve been using it loads at work lately for the transfer from winter to spring. The bottle itself is beautiful, but due to how clunky the lid is, I often take it off when I take it out with me. I would recommend this scent for anyone, as I find alongside Decadence it’s one of the nicest scents.

  • Antipodes Deliverance Hand Cream (link)

My friend Poppy bought me this for Christmas, which I only recently received from her. It’s a gorgeous light hand cream, that really packs a punch! Lately my eczema on my hands is REALLY bad and this hasn’t worked on its own. However when I used this alongside my eczema cream it works like a charm. It smells beautiful and zesty too, which I love for when the summer comes around.

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Unicorn Blood (link)

I bought this liquid lipstick from my friend Claire (from memory) in February, and I really do love this shade! I’d had my eye on it from the day Jeffree Star announced it, but was never able to pick myself up a tube due to it being forever sold out! I bought it from Claire (check her blog out here) for £10! BARGAIN! I don’t wear it alllll the time, but I do love it when I do. It applies like a dream, and lasts ages. OH and it doesn’t stain either. I’ll be reviewing this very soon.

  • Snow Fairy Shower Gel

How can this not be on my favourites? Like every month of the year!? I’ve been using this every other day when I fancied using it, and I always forget what an amazing shower gel it is. It smells gorgeous, the scent lasts ages, and my skin always feels and looks gorgeous after use too. I just need to get a body lotion of this now, and I’ll die happy. 😛 I still have my one 1kg bottle of this, as well as two 500g bottles. So I think I have enough to last me until Lush bring this out again in October. 😛

  • Miss Sporty Clear Mascara (link)

I have used his clear mascara on and off since I turned 14, so well over ten years now! I’ve used it on my eyelashes, as well as on my eyebrows, but I just use it for the latter now. I have big eyebrows (as you can probably see…) and it can be hard to keep them in place sometimes, so I use this clear mascara to keep them in place. It’s cheap as chips at just £2.99 too! It helps keep my brows in place all day, so it can’t get any better than that.

Those are my favourite beauty products from March! What products did you love using throughout March? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all, and here’s to April! 😛

March ’16 Wish List

Okay this is seriously a wish list this month because I SERIOUSLY need to watch my money now. I need to adult and only spend money on house related items… How boring. 😛 I’m hoping to do a wish list Wednesday post on house related items, so keep your eyes peeled for that in the future!

But for now, I’ll just be talking about all sorts of cute, and quirky items that I want for myself. Oh and FYI, I never bought a single thing off of my wish list last month… 😛

  • Benefit Posie Tint – £24.50 (link)

I have to first of all say, I know there are going to be LOADS of lip products on this months wish list… Oh boy. BUT I picked up a sample of this lip tint and I have fallen head over heels in love with it. I am literally using this nearly everyday for work. A little bit goes a long way, and it leaves a gorgeous just bitten pink stain on the lips. I am just so in love. I will buy this one day, I just don’t know when at this moment in time. DAMN having to be a grown up and save money!

  • OPI Hello Kitty Collection Nail Lacquer in Starry-Eyed For Daniel -£12.50 (sadly no link as most stores have sadly sold out…)

I have been lusting after this nail lacquer for quite some time now… BUT I keep telling myself I don’t need anymore polishes, especially when I don’t really wear them anymore. I have my eye on quite a few of the lacquers from this collection, including this one, Charmmy and Sugar, and Say Hello To Hello Kitty. But I doubt I’ll pick any of these up, at least not any time soon at least. It is such a pretty collection coming up to spring and summer, and it’s been a long time coming OPI collaborating with Sanrio. I hope they bring another collection out in future with the rest of the Sanrio family!

  • Bee & PuppyCat Vol. 2 Comic Book – £10.76 (link)

I LOVE Bee & PuppyCat and after recently discovering that there was a comic book out of the popular cartoon show, I just fell harder in love with the show. The second volume of the comic book is currently on pre-order, but as it’s out in less than a month it’ll be mine before I write and publish my April wish list… Because I have that shit pre-ordered! OH YEAH!

  • Sugar Bunny Shop Doki Fox Yamiiko Sweatshirt – $25.00 (link)

Oh.My.GLOB I love this sweatshirt and I legit want it in my life… BUT MONEY! Y DO I HAVE NO MONEY?! Eventually this will become mine, when I don’t know, but it will be one day. It’s the gorgeous Sugar Bunny’s Doki dumpling fox on a sweatshirt, what more could I ask for? I love foxes as it is, but I especially love her Doki fox, he’s just so adorable. Dane bought me some of the stickers from her store a few Christmases ago and I keep them safe in my diary. I could imagine Dane buying me this for our third anniversary together… But we shall see what happens…

  • Lancome Juicy Shaker in shade 400 Mint To Be – £18.00 (link)

I’ve actually bought one of these already… *smacks hand when meant to be saving money* NAUGHTY NAT! But I bought one of the purple shades. This one however is a gorgeous blue/clear sparkly shade, and one that is also limited edition. I actually regret not buying this one considering what it is… But meh I’m sure I’ll be able to pick this up on another occasion. These are gorgeous and lovely to wear for work, and I know already they’ll be a real hit with teenagers, and especially in the summer when people are going on holiday. I’m going to be writing a review up in the week on the shade I picked up over the weekend.

  • Benefit Puff Off Eye Gel – £22.50 (link)

I have been lusting after this throughout February and I actually went to buy it a week ago, but it has sold out in the Boots store I visited! I received a sample of this when I picked up my Matte Rescue and I fell in love. It’s a lovely creamy gel texture, and when applied to the eye area it helps it feel cool, perfect in the morning! I don’t know when I’ll pick this up, as I recently purchased a miniature of Benefit’s It’s Potent eye cream, which I am loving at the moment! So I’m not in as much hurry right now as I previously was. I still can’t wait to get my hands on this though.

  • Nana Manga Vol. 16-21

I’ve spoken about this manga on my blog before, and it is by far my favourite. It’s also incredibly hard to get hold of these days, but my boyfriend finds me good copies on Amazon all the time… Thank God! I am currently on 13, but I know after I’ve finished writing and schedule this post, I’ll be reading it for a while before I go to sleep. I am so close to the end of the series, yet so far away! I know kind of what happens at the end, which sucks, but meh. I’ve watched the anime for the series, which I fell in love with too and own on DVD. I just can’t wait to get the rest of the volumes so I know that I’m one of the lucky few who owns ALL of the series. This is something I will definitely be buying off of this list. I can’t live without my manga.

So that was my wish list for this month! What goodies do you have on your own wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below of what you have your eye on.

Until next time all, take care and I hope you’re all having a great week so far.

March Wish List

Afternoon all, I hope you’re well! I’m here again with one of my favourite posts, my monthly wish list. I really enjoy sharing with my readers what I’m lusting after each month, even if I’m poor and need to save money! Since Valentine’s Day I’ve been on a spending ban as I need to save money to try and move out, as well as bills and such but the odd treat may not hurt, especially if they don’t cost a lot of money. I shall see…

There are quite a few items from Etsy in this wish list and I do apologise for this, but I have been loving Etsy lately!

  • Etsy Eeveelution Zip Bag.

I have been looking on Etsy lately for Eeveelution related items, as Pokemon don’t sell much of this over in the UK so it can be really hard to find and if you do, it can then turn out to be pretty expensive, which sucks! Etsy isn’t exactly cheap due to how expensive delivery can be from over the pond, BUT the stuff you can find can be beautiful. This zip bag being a great example. I mean LOOK how cute the Eeveelution’s are on it? I would definitely use this for when I have a long day at university and want to keep loads of little bits and pieces with me, such as sanitary towels (for time of the month!), make up, perfume, pens, etc. If this was big enough I’d even think about using it on a night out to give me a quirky look.

  • Yankee Candle Large Jar in Celebrate.

Easter is looming and with that all the shops bring out their limited edition products and chocolates, and this includes Yankee Candle. I’d heard about this candle coming out and it sounds delicious! It’s meant to smell like a lemon cake, which I personally love and have owned candles in the past with this same scent. This is selling out everywhere and I’m really not surprised to be honest. I haven’t yet been able to give this a smell, but when I do I can see me falling in love and wanting to buy. I don’t really need anymore Yankee Candle jars as I have loads at the moment, but I want to make sure I pick this up whilst it’s out to buy. I don’t actually think this is limited edition but I do feel like it won’t be around long. Yankee Candle would be silly to take this away mind as it sounds lush!

  • Esty Eevee iPhone 5 Customised Case.

I love my iPhone and when I got it over a year ago the one thing I was excited about the most was all the amazing cases I could put on it. Since then I have owned various lovely cases (mostly fox themed!) and like most people, I always crave more. I love Pokemon and have been after a Pokemon themed case for a while, but the official ones are hella expensive! My friend Gabriella (hey hun!) has been recommending Etsy to me for ages now so I ventured there for a mooch of some cheap and customised Pokemon related items and this is one I have found. You can get all sorts of customised cases on Etsy but the one that got my attention was the Eeveelution ones and the Eevee one stood out the most. It’s so cute and imagine using this whilst out and about? The  only thing I don’t like about it however, is the price. At over £20 including delivery it is shocking… But I’ll probably has this as a treat in the future.

  • eBay Galaxy Skirt.

I love Black Milk, however I don’t like their price tags and whilst I own one piece of Black Milk clothing, I got it for a bargain! These bargains aren’t easy to come by however and I’ve began to think about buying some similar knock offs. Oh naughty me! I’m not rich like some people so… Anyway… I love galaxy print and I always have, so when it came out everywhere I should have been happy, but I was actually annoyed. Now that phase has died down I’m getting back into it again. I would love some purple galaxy leggings or a skirt and this skirt is ideally the sort of thing I would like, especially with spring and summer looming. This won’t break the bank and will look gorgeous dressed up with black tights, a black or even navy t-shirt tucked in and some boots. I don’t mind paying less than a tenner to be honest, it’s better than over £50 for a Black Milk one.

  • Etsy Eeveelution’s Phone Charm.

Like I’ve already said about my iPhone, I love it. I’m pleased to finally have a phone that won’t just do good things, but can look good too! Recently places have created and brought out phone charms that you pop into your phones ear jack. They’ve been out since the iPhone 4s came out and have continued. I’ve bought one in the past and it really did give a personal and unique feel to my phone. When I found these cute Eeveelution’s ones on Etsy I know I wanted one. You can actually pick these up at a decent price from the official Pokemon Center but I really like the look of these customised ones as they give a lovely personal touch. I would get the Sylveon one myself as it just looks so cute.

  • Sugarhill Boutique  Curious Fox Jumper.

I’ve been eying this jumper up for months now but never bought it as it was too much money for £45.00 in my opinion. However now the sales are on it’s only £25.00, which is a bit more acceptable for me. This comes in grey and black, but I think the black looks better, and plus it’s the only one left out of the two. This would look gorgeous with all sorts, especially jeans and a skirt. I would wear this loads for uni as it looks so comfortable and snug. I don’t think this is even selling in my size anymore, but I shall keep my eye on it.

There is another item on my favourites, but this will be mentioned in a separate post on Saturday, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for this as it’s a very exciting thing I will be talking about! All I shall give away about it is that it’s footwear and Adventure Time… Keep tuned!

What’s on your wish list this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

I hope everyone’s week is going well, as well as March so far.

Until next time, take care all.
