August Wish List ’17

Another month, another wish list. Bloody hell I haven’t even started editing the image for this year and I don’t have a clue what to put on it! I know I’ll think of some stuff to shove on there though… 😛

My holiday will soon be in less than a months time and I don’t know if stuff on this list will be to do with that or not… Possibly… Highly likely. I want to pick up a few bits and pieces before we go and I’m thinking of doing that this month so whatever earnings I pick up in September, they’ll be strictly for the holiday!

Anyway enough of me waffling on (as per usual…), let’s get on with the wish list!

  • Star Wars Medium-Length Collar Jyn Dress – £32.99 (link)

I recently found this in EMP’s autumn magazine. FYI EMP is an alternative and geeky store online that specialises in clothing for men and women, as well as other things. I’ve been looking at loads of their clothes lately and been a fan of so much stuff, but I’m in love with this Star Wars dress that’s inspired by Jyn Erso from Rogue One. I’m not a massive fan of dresses with no sleeves but this one will be great to wear in the summer on warm evenings and in the winter with a thermal underneath or a long sleeved t-shirt. I mostly love that it has a hood on it as it’d be great to wear throughout the winter due to that. It’s not a bad price considering that it’s branded and Star Wars! I may get it for the holiday… We shall see. 😛

  • Attitude Clothing Purple Jelly Heart Choker – Was £10.99 Now £5.50 (link)

I’ve wanted a heart choker for as long as I can remember now but I’ve never found a decent one that I like the look of. Whilst browsing around Attitude Clothing’s website I found this (and the holographic one) in their sale. I don’t actually know if a choker would suit me. Not like this anyway! I love that it has a buckle to fasten it instead of poppers. For just over £5.00 I’d like to think this is a bargain to discover if it’ll suit me or not. I’d probably wear this/these on holiday in the evenings when dressing up and going out for drinks.

  • Good Smile Company Persona 5 Morgana Nendoroid – £44.99 (link)

I feel like me and Dane haven’t bought a Nendoroid for ages… Well aside from Dane ordering Elric brothers recently from Good Smile’s official website. I want to order Morgana as soon as I can, because if you’re not a regular reader you won’t know how much I love Persona 5. 😛 I LOVE IT TO THE MOON AND BACK AND TO THE  MOON AGAIN! So of course I need to add Morgana to our Nendoroid collection. 😛

  • Killstar Phaedra Skater Dress – £39.99 (link)

This is number one on my wish list right now and it will be until I buy it! I don’t know whether I’ll buy it this month or next but I’ll be definitely picking it up before the holiday. It’s a gorgeous skater dress with a mermaid scale print on it. It reminds me of the Black Milk Clothing mermaid print that started off the trend of people dressing as mermaids. 😛 I also love the slight bondage style look on the back in a star/pentagram shape. I’d rock this so much and yes it’s not cheap, but I haven’t bought myself a new dress since Christmas so I’d love to pick myself up something new.

  • Attitude Clothing Hologram Heart Ring Choker – Was £12.99 Now £6.50 (link)

I’ve wanted a heart choker for as long as I can remember now but I’ve never found a decent one that I like the look of. Whilst browsing around Attitude Clothing’s website I found this (and the purple jelly one) in their sale. I don’t actually know if a choker would suit me. Not like this anyway! I love that it has a buckle to fasten it instead of poppers. For just over £5.00 I’d like to think this is a bargain to discover if it’ll suit me or not. I’d probably wear this/these on holiday in the evenings when dressing up and going out for drinks. I’m a massive hologram/holographic fan and I’m sure if I like this one or the purple jelly more… I’m thinking the latter though! We shall see…

  • Sixtyseven Silver Tone Holographic Sliders – £12.99 (link)

I’ve actually ordered these now ready for holiday BUT before ordering them I hadn’t really found a pair of sliders that I liked the look of. I knew I wanted some holographic ones but wherever I looked they were either overpriced or look fugly. These ones aren’t only “designer” but also a decent price and look awesome! I cannot wait for them to arrive to try them on. I’ll wear them throughout the day and maybe in the evening depending.

  • Killstar Salem Choker – £17.99 (link)

I know that this choker looks very bondage, S&M, sexual, etc etc. BUT I think it looks cute and sexy all the same! I could see me wearing this one more than the purple and holographic heart chokers from Attitude Clothing. This would obviously be a piece of “jewellery” to wear in the evenings and with any grunge style clothing! I really want to pick it up for the holiday too. It’d look amazing with the mermaid dress! 😀

So that’s my wish list for this month. I’m trying to save my money though this month, pretty much all I’ll buy is a dress or two for the holiday, a choker and a bikini. I can’t wait for my holiday! I just want some new bits and pieces to wear there… And here of course!

What 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 as excited for the rest of the month as I am.

Bikini Wish List Wednesday

I know I usually schedule posts for every 3 days (unless like recently where I was a lazy bitch and left a new post for a week…) BUT I wanted to do another wish list Wednesday post before I go on holiday.

I’m in desperate need of a new bikini and whilst the Iron Fist one I currently own is amazing and does a great job when wearing it, I would like something new that reflects my personality… I know that sounds weird, but hear me out throughout the post as to what I mean!

I also wanted a new bikini because whilst I loved and felt comfortable wearing my Iron Fist one on holiday, I didn’t feel that it stood out and I really want one that will! Especially when going down to the beach, which I hope to do more of on this holiday.

There is a sort of theme around all the bikinis I’ve added to this list too, I am aware of that after putting the image together. 😛 Enjoy the wish list!

  • Boux Avenue Cabaret Triangle Bikini Top – £28.00 (link)
  • Boux Avenue Cabaret Bikini Briefs – £16.00 (link)

Sadly (as you can see) this bikini isn’t cheap. It’s actually quite expensive for what it looks like from the pictures, BUT IT’S PURPLE AND LOOKS ALMOST HOLOGRAPHIC! I also don’t see many bikini tops that allow you to buy your bra size as apposed to UK dress size or S, M or L. This would be a nice bikini to wear around the pool at my house, as apposed to the beach, but it would also be really nice to wear with a pair of shorts and a sheer jumper. It is expensive though for what it is and due to this I’d want to not only have a look at in person in one of their stores, but I’d also want to try it on before buying. I think I’ll wait for this to go in the sale though. £44.00 is a lot for a bikini in my mind…

  • Soft Kitty Clothing Mermaid Bikini – £15.00 (link)

I really love the look of this bikini as it reminds me of Ariel from The Little Mermaid but again, it’s that mermaid print that I love so much appearing again. This is the cheapest bikini on this list and it looks really good quality too! The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it states not to swim in pools with chlorine, which I understand but at the same time that kind of sucks. I would wear the bikini top during sunbathing as it can be a bandeau but I don’t know that for sure. I can’t see this being a bikini I pick up, but if any of the ones on this list aren’t available before the holiday then this could be a last resort.

  • River Island Mermaid Metallic Bandeau Bikini – £16.00 (link)

This is a bikini set I’ve had my eye on for a while now but it always seems to run out of stock or is sold out in sales. It’s only available on ASOS now but for £16.00 this is a decent price in my mind for a River Island bikini! I’ve been after a bandeau for a while to be honest for sunbathing in, as well as going out and about. As you can tell I have a metallic and holographic theme going on with these bikinis and this one is such a gorgeous petrol colour!

Missguided Blue Metallic Harness Bikini – £25.00 down to £12.50 (link)

There seems to be a trend this year with harnesses on bikinis and whilst I love it, I find it may also be impractical when tanning due to lines being left behind everywhere. I wouldn’t wear this for sunbathing in, it would definitely be one for going to the beach or shopping. I love the bottoms more than anything as they look so flattering and comfortable! These are so cheap in the sale that a part of me feels like ordering them now. 😛 But I won’t, I’ll wait to buy the bikini set I’m talking about last on this post.

  • Boohoo Manhattan Hologram Triangle Tie Bikini – £18.00 (link)

I want a bog standard holographic bikini and this is probably the nicest one I have found, which is from Boohoo. They sell loads of stuff like this on eBay but I don’t trust the quality of eBay sellers stock. You can’t go wrong with Boohoo though and for £18.00 you can’t go wrong really. I’d wear this to go swimming in the pool, the beach and even to sunbathe in. So we shall see!

  • Killstar Arabella Halter Top – £19.99 (link)
  • Killstar Arabella Posing Shorts – £14.99 (link)

I’m saving my favourite item on this list until last! If there has been a bikini I have really fallen in love with, it’s definitely this one by Killstar. I was actually meant to order this and a dress with the same pattern when I got paid a couple of weeks ago, but I left it and bought a PS Vita instead… Priorities! 😛 BUT I will either be ordering this when I get paid next month, or September just before the holiday. Probably August though… 😛 I love mermaid printed things thanks to Black Milk Clothing and their gorgeous mermaid print leggings, which I own two pairs of (you can read and look at me wearing the one pair here) and love to death! I always take those with me whenever I’ve visited Fuerteventura, so why not wear a bikini with the same look to it? This one just looks sexy yet comfortable and flattering at the same time. I was worried this would actually cost more but when you compare the price of it alongside the Boux Avenue one, it’s a bargain really! This definitely isn’t a bikini I would wear when watching to catch the sun and tan and I’m sure you can see why! It’d be more something to wear on hot days whilst walking around with (again!) some shorts or even my Black Milk mermaid leggings. I just need this bikini in my life! 😛

So those are the bikinis I’m lusting after at the moment! There are so many things I want to buy and wear for the holiday and whilst I’m not low on funds at the moment, I don’t WANT to be low on funds either.

We shall see… I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing a haul of what goodies I get for the holiday.

Do you have your eye on any bikinis? If so please share them with me! 😀 Also, are you going on holiday this summer? Let me know where you’re going in the comments.

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

Much Needed Retail Therapy – Haul

photo2024-02-20162052007204220pm_zpsavw1aw5x

Oh dear, I should really be saving my money… Especially when I’m getting closer to buying a house! I hate being a grown-up… >.<

I went out with my friend Sophie (HI SOPHIE!!! :D) for a much needed YO! Sushi, nerdy, and interior design window shopping. It was much needed as I’ve been so busy lately with work, and life in general that I haven’t seen her properly since after Christmas!

We had an amazing day, but I spent a little bit too much money… OOPS! I hope I don’t do the same again Sunday when I see Poppy… Fingers crossed. 😛

One of the items I picked up was from eBay, but I just HAD to mention it today as it was such a bargain I snatched up!

photo2024-02-20162052008201020pm_zpsk7kiugae

One of the first things I picked up before we went for food was this 2016 holographic diary, and pen from Paperchase. I don’t need a diary as I have my planner,  but that’s for important things, this diary is going to be my “Bridget Jones diary” where I write in it everyday. As it is now pretty much two months into the year, I’m using the first few months as random pages to write ideas for my blog, interior ideas for when I get a house, etc. It was 30% off in the sale too, which wasn’t too bad. I recently found my diary from 2013, which I never finished as I had a lot of stuff going on, and just forgot about it. I read through the pages, and it reminded me of things I have forgotten about. So I want that again, especially this year with all the exciting things that are happening!

We ventured into a couple of the comic book shops in town, Forbidden Planet and Nostalgia Comics. I picked this AMAZING comic up from Nostalgia, and I didn’t even know of its existence! Bee and PuppyCat is a cartoon by Natasha Allegri which started off as a cartoon, and has now been turned into a comic! I literally gasped out loud, and pretty loudly too when I saw this, and snatched it up with both hands. There was only one copy left, so I’m glad I got it. I love Bee and PuppyCat, which was inspired by Adventure Time’s Fionna and Cake. I’ll drop a video down below so you can check it out.

Naughty me bought Benefit… And I said I wouldn’t… Sigh. I decided to do the 4 minis for £15 offer, one of the minis I gave to my mom (a mascara) and I picked up the Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, It’s Potent Eye Cream, and Posie Tint Lip & Cheek Stain. I already LOVE Posie Tint and already know I want to buy the full product. I’m pretty sure I’ll be reviewing this at some point.

I also picked up The POREfessional License To Blot Instant Oil-Blotting Stick. I wanted to pick up Puff Off eye cream/gel, but they didn’t have any left in stock. So I decided to go for this instead. I used it this morning for work and it worked pretty well to be honest! I touched up with a bit of powder during my break, but I wasn’t as oily looking as I usually am, which I was really pleased about. Well worth picking up then!

I didn’t buy these yesterday, I actually picked them up after work. I was only going to buy the one item… I ended up leaving with all of these. Oh dear… I earned a lot of Boots points from it though so WOOHOO! I picked up a new face scrub for myself, and as I loved this so much last time I bought it I decided to repurchase it. It’s a 3 in 1 wash, scrub, and a mask I use the latter two. I didn’t know that Soap & Glory had brought out their Hand Food hand cream in the Sugar Crush scent! Yes it’s in a tiny 50ml bottle, but I don’t mind that at all as it can live in my hand bag, or on my bedside table happily! The main reason for me going into Boots in the first place was to pick up a clear mascara for my eyebrows. I’ve always used the Miss Sporty one and it’s always done me good, so like the face scrub, I repurchased it. Finally I picked up the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL lip gloss in shade Clearvoyant, which I’m sure you can guess is a clear shade. I’ve had my eye on it for a while now, but never seen it on offer until today. With £2.00 off I thought I’d finally pick it up for £8.00. I tried this not long after I got home and it feels and makes my lips look pretty nice. It has a fruity scent to it, and straight away I can feel my lips tingling and plumping. It’s nothing major from what I can see so far, but we shall see how it goes…

One of the first places me and Sophie went into after sushi was Tokyo Toys, (which I’m sure as you can guess from the name) is a store dedicated to all things Japanese, and kawaii! We bought a matching little black soot Totoro keychain, and I picked up a little Totoro holding a no face mask keychain. I was going to stick these little guys in my car, but I don’t want to now, so they’re going to sit with my massive Totoro plushie in my room. Yay!

Finally I’m showing off my eBay purchase, some more Black Milk Clothing leggings! Which I hope you can tell are mermaid leggings too. These are the Mermaid Midnight Leggings, which look black but aren’t 100% black. When you shine them in light the scales come up as a dark teal shade, which is pretty cool! These cost $80.00 AUD but I picked them up for £36, including postage and they’re BRAND NEW! I’m so damn pleased that I bid on them, and won them as I’d probably be kicking myself now. I’m going to wear them this weekend, and maybe get some pictures taken for a look book post.

So yeah, that’s everything I picked up when I went on my retail therapy shopping spree!

Have you bought anything nice recently? If so make sure to let me know what you’ve picked up recently.

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

Me, the Sea, and a Pair of Leggings

Can I just put this out there first of all and say how bloody hard it was to find a decent title for this post. I didn’t want anything The Little Mermaid themed, or mermaid for that matter, because that’s just been done way too much, and yeah I hate that shit.

Finally I came up with one which is actually some sort of meaning to it. I was intending to use some sort of lyric but I just couldn’t settle on one which sucked. I looked at certain band songs I’ve been loving at the moment but nothing really matched. So I just left it as something simple, and relevant.

One of the last days of our holiday in January 2015 we went out for a walk along the harbour and for a drink or two. There are huge rocks lining the sea which you can climb across, and sit on. I of course did the latter, alongside a bit of standing up too. I used to climb along these rocks all the time as a child, and it was a treat to look out at the ocean. The views are fantastic from those rocks, and some of the beautiful and fond ones I have of Fuerteventura.

I really love these pictures, and they actually cause me to miss Fuerteventura a lot. It’s my second home, and one I would live at permanently one day…

My outfit isn’t anything spectacular, I know. But my leggings are pretty much the whole outfit, the rest is just complimentary.

I’ve owned these Black Milk Clothing leggings for quite a while now, since 2014 to be exact and for ages I have wanted to write a look book post on them, but alas I haven’t until now. The pictures in this post are from my holiday to Fuerteventura at the start of 2015, again just over a year ago now. Which let me tell you, has flown by! Since then I’ve finished my masters, got a new job, bought a new car, AND gone on holiday to Fuerteventura again.

I don’t think I have ever spoken about my Black Milk leggings on my blog until now, so I may as well talk a little about them. They were find via eBay (oh I love eBay!) and at first i didn’t win the big, but someone pulled out and alas I was there with my money to snap them up. I think I paid just over £35 for them, which is a lot but considering how much they are direct from Black Milk, and custom fees it was well worth the money! PLUS you can’t buy this design anymore, so I have a limited pair. WOOP!

photo2020-01-20152042043203420pm_zpscwtclxdn

I teamed these up with my amazing Darth Vader Vans slip ons, which I wear quite a lot, even a year on. I wore these religiously on holiday as I had just bought them in the January sales for £20.00, a complete bargain. I wish I hadn’t worn socks with them at the time, but I think I was trying to avoid getting any sunburn on my fight. Oh and my feet were in really bad condition that holiday… So I was probably trying to hide how minging they were.

During that holiday I was a bit of a hippy with the way I had my hair, and the jewellery I started wearing. I wore loads of friend bracelets, and necklaces. My hair was forever curly, and wavy, which I loved!

I loved that holiday, and I remember on the way home crying because I missed it so much. The second time I went back in 2015 was November to December. I was pretty numb flying back, and didn’t get upset. But I still didn’t want to come back to the UK.

I hope to go back again soon, I really miss it there, and pictures like these remind me of why I love it so damn much.

I hope to buy myself another pair of Black Milk leggings soon… Hopefully another mermaid pair. Watch this space!

Do you own any Black Milk Clothing pieces? If you don’t, which pieces would you like to own? Make sure to let me know in the comments below.

Until next time, take care all and hope you’ve had a great weekend!
