September Wish List ’20

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

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

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

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

  • LittlestSpookShop Halloween Hijinkery Print (link)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

July Wish List β€™20

It’s that time of month again where I share my monthly wish list with you all! I know I say most months that I’ve struggled to put a list together, but this month I really HAVE struggled. In all honesty this is down to me buying things as and when I have wanted them.

During lock down I have saved quite a bit of money, which is great, but at the same time it’s also been nice having money to splurge on things I’ve wanted for a while, but now I’m running out of items from my wish list, which is a mixture of funny and sad. πŸ˜›

Half of the items on this list are Animal Crossing related… But is that such a big surprise? πŸ˜›

I hope you enjoy this months wish list, it’s sadly nothing special, but it’s better than nothing at all, eh?

  • Fearless Illustration Danger Days Long Sleeved Top (link)

I don’t know why but I’ve really fallen in love with this top! I’m a sucker for baseball style t-shirts and have always loved them. They look great with anything, but especially jeans. I’d get this in the largest size too so I could have it baggy to tuck into my mom jeans and skirts. I know there is also a version with yellow/mustard sleeves instead of red, but I much prefer the red version. Also with the slogan on the top and it being called “Danger Days” it reminds me a little of My Chemical Romance… So this top could come in handy next June when I see them in Milton Keynes!

  • Sugar Bunny Shop Animal Crossing Marshal Textured Print (link)

I’ve always been a fan of Sugar Bunny Shop and whilst people have bought me things from her store, I’ve never actually bought anything for myself. I’m LOVING the Animal Crossing prints the owner of the store has designed and I’ve especially fallen in love with this Marshal print. I never understood the fuss behind Marshal, until he visited my campsite and decided to move to my island. He’s one of my favourites now for so many reasons, but mostly because he loves coffee. This print would go in my bedroom along with my other Animal Crossing prints.

  • Jenni Illustrations Froggy Chair Sticker (link)

This is another store that I have wanted to buy from for the longest time and never had. Well, recently Jenni opened up her store again with loads of new and old goodies. I decided I had waited long enough and made an order (which I’ll be showing you guys when it’s here, of course) BUT I made my order a little too soon. The next day Jenni added some more goodies to her store, some of them that I really wanted, including some Animal Crossing stickers, Blue’s Clues stickers and this Animal Crossing froggy chair sticker. It looks so adorable! I would have loved this for my iPad case or maybe even something else. With the amount of Jenni Illustration items in my wish list, I’ll be able to make another order in the future for sure!

  • Eltamagotchi Isabelle Animal Crossing Cereal Vol.1 Enamel Pin (link)

This is an enamel pin I nearly ordered recently… But I went against it due to the cost of it overall to the UK with shipping. It wasn’t cheap and it made me cringe. This isn’t a massive enamel pin either, so I’m going to wait until I either buy someone else a pin as a birthday/Christmas present. The other thing thatΒ slightlyΒ puts me off is the fact it sort of looks like a “traced” copy of the Isabelle design from Nintendo? I don’t know if that’s just me? I do really love the idea of Animal Crossing characters in the size and shape of cereal. It would look adorable in my Isabelle ita bag… I’ll see. πŸ˜›

  • Bobblejot Tori the Corgi Plushies Kickstarter (link)

First of all this Kickstarter campaign finishes Monday 6th July at 4.41pm, so if you like the look of this cute Tori plush by Bobblejot, then make sure to back the campaign before then! Okay, so I’ve been a fan of Bobblejot’s cartoon about Tori the corgi and Samuel the cat for as long as I can remember now, so when I heard they had brought out a Kickstarter with plushies of Tori, I KNEW I had to get one myself! Tori is an adorable young corgi who is finding out new things in the world, with the help of Samuel. I’ll link the Instagram page here so you can go and check out some of the cartoons for yourself.

  • TK Maxx GC Home Decor White Giraffe Artificial Succulent (link)

Finally the last item on my wish list this month is this giraffe artificial succulent home decoration from TK Maxx. I’m not one for keeping plants in the house and I couldn’t tell you why… I love some flowers every now and again, but succulents and house plants aren’t for me. However, I would like to start potentially havingΒ someΒ green around my house. This being said, I do not have a clue where I would keep this if I bought it… Maybe the office in the window or on the side by my front door? Who knows. I have fallen in love with the giraffe a little though!

So there you have it, my wish list for July. Again, I’m sorry there wasn’t anything “exciting” on there, but I like the items I popped on. I doubt very much I’ll be buying any of the items due to my bathroom being done. I’m going to be a little skint now until I’m paid at the end of the month. πŸ˜›

What item(s) do you like on my wish list? What items do you have on your lists? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and stay safe!

June Wish List ’20

I still can’t quite believe it’s June! So much has already happened in June and I’m a mixture of excited for the rest of the month and dreading what it could bring.

Yesterday marked me and Dane owning our home for four years. This has honestly flown by and it only feels like yesterday that we put our offer down on the house and waited those anxious months until we had the keys in our hands! It’s a really lovely feeling and it makes me so happy.

As well as that, on Monday it is our 7 year anniversary. We can’t do much for it, but we may have a lazy morning in bed, play Animal Crossing together and order a takeaway of Japanese food, because why not! πŸ˜€ I’m excited to just chill out and cuddle with Dane for the day.

This months wish list was hard to write in a way. I’ve found that due to lock down and not going out at all, I’ve save a lot of money… So, I’ve been really bad and ordered things I’ve wanted for ages. I’ve calmed down a little now as I have made some big home related purchases lately and need to be good with money now.

However, that doesn’t mean I can’t have my wish lists! One of the items on my wish list this month I’ve actually ordered, but I couldn’t think of anything else to add to the list. 😦

Anyhoo, let’s talk about the goodies on my wish list for June!

  • Pandora Poodle Puppy Dog Dangle Charm (link)

I do love my Pandora bracelet and when charms are released that shout out to me, I really do fall in love with them and want to buy them. This poodle puppy dangle charm is adorable and shouts me all over. When I was younger I owned two toy poodles, who I loved so much. I haven’t owned a dog for over 10 years now and whilst I would love a dog to come into mine and Dane’s lives, its not ideal right now. This charm is gorgeous and will definitely remind me of the dogs I had and have lost.

  • JeanaDraws Animal Crossing Dom Enamel Pin (link)

If there is an Animal Crossing villager I have quickly fallen in love with, it’s Dom. He’s one of the newer villagers who joined through New Horizons and he is adorable! However, he also seems to be like Marmite… You either love or you hate him. I adore him and I need him on my island at some point in the future. I would love a Dom enamel pin to show my love, but at the moment I’ve not found any artists who are making one apart from JeanaDraws. I discovered them through their sakura otter Kickstarter, which I sadly never backed and regret. An Animal Crossing itabag I bought at the start of the year is due to arrive soon… So I would love to pop a Dom enamel pin inside it!

  • Razer Kraken Gaming Headphones Quartz Edition (link)

I have been eyeing up buying a set of gaming headphones for quite some time now… But I don’t know why? I play a lot of games, but lately I am just purely playing Animal Crossing, with the occasional hour or so on Persona 5 Royal. However, at the moment with working from home, I would love a decent headset that I can use for both work and home that also looks cool. I know I can get a decent set of gaming headphones for a cheaper price, which is why I haven’t bought these and they’re just on my wish list at the moment. I shall see… I shall see…

  • Sukari Moon I Don’t Give a Fluff Enamel Pin (link)

Another enamel pin and this one is bloody adorable! I actually discovered Sukari Moon through this enamel pin, but the limited edition version of it, which is white and shimmery. I would love this pin to wear on cardigans, jackets and hoodies to show how I’m adorable, but I don’t give a damn at the same time. Of course I would also use and wear this on itabags and my Kanken backpack too. They also do a sticker of this too, which I would love to get.

  • Snotgirl Volume 3 (link)

This is the item I’ve actually ordered. I love Snotgirl and have already read volume 1 and 2. I’ve waited what feels like forever for volume 3 to come out, as it was due out October 2019, but it’s been delayed for reasons. I finally found it for sale through a third party on Amazon and knew I had to order before it sold out. I usually pick up my comics from Forbidden Planet, but due to lock down that isn’t an option. I also opt for Wordery for my manga and comics too, but they didn’t have this volume in stock. I am beyond excited for volume 3 of Snotgirl! It’s about an influencer with secrets about how she has allergies. Then she meets a girl and shit starts to hit the fan. I definitely recommend reading it, especially if you’re a blogger.

  • Toaster Kiwi Animal Crossing Marshal Stickers 2 Piece Set (link)

Finally we have another Animal Crossing item on the list. This one is some cute Marshal stickers. I never got the hype around Marshal until he moved to my New Horizons island. He’s absolutely adorable and he loves coffee! He’s me in an Animal Crossing villager for sure! He randomly came to my campsite too, so it’s not like I added him to my game through amiibo. These stickers by Toaster Kiwi are adorable and really make me happy to see whenever they pop up on my Instagram feed. I’ll order them in the future for sure.

So, there you have it, my wish list for June! I know the items I mentioned weren’t anything special, but it’s all I could think of for this month.

I know May was a month where my blog was a little quieter as I wasn’t feeling great. However, during June I hope to have loads of content coming out every week, which I’m also hoping you guys will love!

Some sneak peaks as to what will be in store are – Redbubble haul, some enamel pin reviews (not sure which yet), Etude House lip tint review and more!

What are you guys excited to see on my blog? Also, what item(s) do you have on/in your wish lists? Make sure to let me know in the comments below.

Until next time, take care all and stay safe!

May Wish List ’20

I can’t believe it’s May already, can you? As we all know here in the UK, we are still in lock down and we are until the end of this month… Did I hear a mass sigh? πŸ˜›

Personally, I’m taking everyday as it comes and making sure to keep myself busy, including working, playing games, blog work/ideas and talking to friends. My usual really… I’m also trying not to shop too much, although that’s kind of hard at the moment as that’s another thing I’m doing to keep myself amused and busy.

Window shopping is amazing, isn’t it? I have to say though, when it came down to doing this months wish list, I kind of struggled a little bit… I don’t know if it’s because I’ve bought most of the stuff I’ve wanted, or if it’s because I’m now actually missing going out for clothes and such.

Either way, I FINALLY got something together for today’s post, it’s nothing special but I hope you enjoy it either way!

The Body Shop Banana Bath Blend (link)

This is a product that came out recently from The Body Shop. I LOVED their banana range that has released a few times now, but only as limited edition. Now they have bath blends out permanently and in a banana scent! I definitely want to give these a go, however, the one thing that puts me off right now in the price. Β£8 to me is definitely on the expensive side and when you can grab a Lush bubble bar for less than this… It’s a bit much. I’m a bit surprised by it to be honest, as The Body Shop can tend to be better priced than Lush at the best of times. Either way, eventually I will pick this up! I really love having baths after work at the moment.

Pandora Disney 101 Dalmatians Patch Charm (link)

I really love that in the UK we now have loads of Disney items coming to Pandora. Originally it was just Disney parks who seemed to have them, as well as America. I only own two Disney charms, Dumbo and Lady and the Tramp, so I’m always happy to own more, including this cute little Patch charm. I do love 101 Dalmatians, so this would make a nice addition to my Pandora bracelet. It’ll be something I treat myself to in the future, I’m sure.

Fearless Illustration Raincloud Cardigan (link)

I’ve been lusting over this cardigan for the past month, so much so that I even created the design in Animal Crossing to wear (which Bones has been wearing and breaking my bloody heart!). I love cardigans like this and it definitely reminds me of my rainbow “boring” Lazy Oaf cardigan. However, it isn’t cheap and the size I’m after isn’t in stock where it’s at a decent price. I can definitely see me picking this up in future, even to wear to work during the winter months.

NaomiLordArt Seasonal Autumn Fox Sticker (link) and Zodiac Capricorn Fox Sticker (link)

I really love Naomi Lord’s work and have always wanted to buy some of her prints and stickers in the past for myself, but instead I always bought them for friends birthday and Christmas presents. I’ve actually now ordered these two stickers for myself as I wanted something from her store and these two designs are by far my favourite. I’m a Capricorn, love autumn and they’re both fox designs… What isn’t there to love?! I’m so excited to receive them to show you guys in the future. Also, if you like the look of Naomi Lord, make sure to go and check out my best blogger friend Sarah’s (Raiin Monkey) post all about some goods she ordered from Naomi Lord.

My Neighbour Totoro LED Night Lamps (link)

First of all, these are not official items by Studio Ghibli and I never like to recommend fake items, but I really do love these to be honest with you. I’m due to have some shelves put up next to my bed and I feel like these would be a lovely addition to those shelves, or even downstairs with our Studio Ghibli items. I showed them to Dane recently and he actually wants them on a shelf in the hallway, so when people come into the house they will be greeted with these, which is such a lovely idea to be honest with you. I would want both of these, as they’re both just as cute as the other. I wouldn’t be able to choose either one. I don’t think I’ll be buying these this month as I feel like I’ve already spent a lot of money through YY Kawaii and more, so I’d like to try and be good for a while until the next payday!

So that is my wish list for May! Apologies that it’s nothing special, the majority of items I have seen, lusted after and wanted to buy are items that are mostly through Redbubble and Etsy and are heavily Animal Crossing inspired or themed. I mean, would you guys like to see another Animal Crossing wish list? Please let me know!

I have so much exciting content coming up for May, but I feel like I don’t have enough time haha! What are you excited to see? πŸ™‚

What do you guys have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below, as well as what posts you would like and are excited to see!

Until next time, take care and stay safe everyone!

April Wish List ’20

I can’t believe we are already into April… This past year has gone by so bloody quick, it’s just a shame that coronavirus is around at the moment really. 😦 As I’m writing this I am nearing the first week of isolation and working from home. It’s been nice to be honest… I like staying in sometimes to have time for me and Dane but I also miss friends who I am meant to see. 😦

I’ve found that during isolation I’ve been online shopping a little… I can’t help it, I’m bored and want lovely things if I can’t go out for meals, coffee dates and shopping trips with friends! πŸ˜›

I feel like this months wish list is boring, but this is all I could think of to be honest with you all… As I said, anything I am seeing and liking the look of, I’ve been ordering/buying!

I hope you guys enjoy this months wish list!

  • Tarte Cosmetics Sugar Rushβ„’ Star Factor Cleansing Face Brush (link)

I noticed someone on Instagram using this face brush over and over again and it looks really good! I’ve used different face brushes in the past and whilst some were good and some where bad, I would like to try something again. Good ol’ fashioned hands is always great, but brush may help! This isn’t cheap at over Β£15 and especially the postage over Β£6! I was planning to buy it too but MONEY! This is an item I’m going to keep my eye on as I would definitely love to pick it up in the future.

  • Insert Coin Persona 5 Futaba Is AFK Coat (link)

I cannot express enough how much I WANT THIS COAT! As many of my readers will know by now, I love Persona 5 and have so much merchandise (inc clothing from Insert Coin) since it came out in 2017. I do have a parka, just like this one but I hardly wear it anymore as I just… Don’t? This Futaba coat looks really good and would be perfect to throw on throughout all the seasons! At the same time… I do wonder if it’s me. The one thing that really puts me off ordering it however, is the price. Β£99.99 is expensive for a coat in my opinion. I’ll wait for this to go down in price…

  • Artbox PomPomPurin CafΓ© Sweets Ballpoint Pen with Spoon Clip (link)

I have just written a blog post about the stationary items I picked up from Japan (which you can read about here) and here I am, wanting more! I saw this cute PomPomPurin pen from Artbox and it’s adorable! PomPomPurin is a little custard pudding, which I love to eat when I can get one! I don’t need anymore pens, but this is honestly adorable. I would love to pick up some more kawaii stationary soon.

  • Appleminte Isabelle Pin (link)

I’ve actually pre-ordered this pin now, but I just needed to. It wasn’t cheap to be honest due to the shipping from America, but I don’t care. In May I should be receiving an Animal Crossing itabag I ordered, so I want to make sure to fill it with adorable Animal Crossing related pins! Isabelle is sat down in her New Horizons attire, whilst holding a glass of vacation juice. SO CUTE! Definitely needed a pin of Isabelle in her new uniform, she’s the best girl!

  • Nintendo Switch Good Job! (link)

This game was recently announced during the Nintendo Direct Mini last week and since watching it I have wanted Good Job! on the Switch to play when I’m not playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Your dad owns the company and you need to work your way up the ladder to be next to him, it just looks so quirky and fun! I will pop the YouTube video above so you can watch the trailer. πŸ™‚

  • Lime Crime Lip Pops in Retrograde (link)

I was pretty excited for this new launch from Lime Crime. I love my lip products/colours and I also rather like Lime Crime (especially after they were sold to better people…) so I do try and keep up with what they have out. The new Lip Pops that they have brought out are satin finish lipsticks that you click to get more product to pop up and click to pop the product away. Probably makes ZERO SENSE the way I am describing it. πŸ˜› There are a couple of shades I like the look of, but Retrograde is one I am gravitating towards the most. It’s a sheer purple/blue shade which you can apply sheer, or build up for more colour. I haven’t seen these available in the UK yet, but I’ll be keeping eyes peeled for the future. With the lock down going on at the moment, there isn’t much point in getting any new lippies anytime soon.

  • Lisa Angel House of Disaster ‘Secret Garden’ Fox Jar (link)

Finally, we have a cute fox item on my wish list that I recently discovered through Instagram. I remember falling in love with Lisa Angel back in 2016 when I bought my house, fast forward almost 4 years later and I have found myself looking on their website again at the cute goods they have to offer! I really love this fox jar, it’s so kawaii and kitsch/vintage looking. I don’t know what I could keep in it though to be honest if I picked it up…

So, that is my wish list for April! I cannot believe we’re already into the fourth month of the year and we’re probably going to be stuck in the house for most of it…

What do you guys have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below, as well as what you’re up to during lock down.

Until next time all, take care and stay safe. πŸ™‚

February Wish List ’20

It’s that time of month again where I share with you guys what items I have on my wish list for the month!

Well… After an amazing 2 weeks in Japan last month, I REALLY did struggle to add stuff to my wish list for this month. It wasn’t easy and I had to have a big think about what items I would love to pick up for myself this month… Maybe… If I can afford it after Japan. I also booked my tickets for My Chemical Romance in June, so I am very much skint until payday at the end of the month. πŸ˜›

So please bear in mind, this list may be bland and boring… Or it might be exciting, we shall see!

  • Pandora Disney Lady and the Tramp Heart Dangle Charm (link)

There are no two ways about it, I NEED this charm for my Pandora! It’s funny that Dane bought me the Lady and Tramp charms from Chamilia for Christmas and then BAM, Pandora realise their own charm… Ha. Either way this dangle charm is really cute and perfect for Valentine’s Day, which is only a couple of weeks away now. I’ll definitely be treating myself to this charm, but probably not until payday towards the end of the month. I really hope to see more of my favourite Disney characters from Pandora in the future! A cute little Lucky dalmatian, anyone?

  • Persona 5 Manga Volume 1 (link)

I have been so bloody excited for this manga series to finally hit the UK and it did in January! I did pre-order this through Amazon but again (this isn’t the first time…) they failed to deliver my manga on time, even though other stores have this in stock. So instead I ordered from Wordery… I’m just going to go back to Wordery in regards to ordering my manga. They’re just so much more reliable. ANYWAY! I’m excited for this to arrive now so I can read it. I know I’ll be waiting ages for the volumes to hit the UK, but I don’t care – it’ll be worth it!

  • Mango Mom Slim Jeans (link)

I bought these jeans just before I went on holiday to Japan and oh my… They have really changed my life! πŸ˜› I know that sounds dramatic, but honestly I do love these jeans. I bought them a size bigger too after trying them on as I wanted some jeans that were mom style, but baggy and comfortable. These are clearly too big for me, so much so I need to wear a belt to keep them from falling down haha. This being said, I still love these and I already know I want to pick up another pair. I need to venture to town soon so I intend on picking up another pair of these then with some birthday money I still have in my purse.

  • FoxLeap Lady and the Tramp Lady Pups and Scamp and Angel Enamel Pins (link) and (link)

I’ve already pre-ordered these to be honest with you… I just had to. I love FoxLeap’s enamel pins and I especially loved the Lady and The Tramp one that I backed in their Kickstarter campaign last year (which you can see and read about here). The quality of the pin is amazing, let alone how gorgeous the design is. Lady and The Tramp is my favourite Disney movie, so I just had to order the Lady Pups and Scamp and Angel pins too… It would be rude not to! πŸ˜€ If you would like to see a review of these once they arrive, please let me know!

  • Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Limited Edition Console (link)

Literally this morning as I write up this blog post (31st January), Nintendo FINALLY announced a Switch console to coincide with Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Fuck. I always said if Nintendo dropped an Animal Crossing Switch, I would buy… Of course I really want to buy this but Dane has a Switch and I have a Switch Lite… So it’s tricky. I keep thinking in my head how I could have it for at home in our bedroom to play games on – but the problem there is that you can have multiple saves across multiple consoles, which in itself sucks! I’m so badly torn as to whether to pick up this Switch or not. I love my Switch Lite and I definitely wouldn’t replace it. It’s light weight, easy to travel with and it’s cute! BUT I AM ALSO SO DAMN TORN! 😦

I know this isn’t a long wish list this month, but honestly this is all I could think of! As I mentioned at the start of the post, due to just getting back from Japan I now own a LOT of stuff and I’m feeling the pinch a little due to it. However, there are still things I would love to buy come payday. πŸ˜›

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 all, take care and I hope you’re having a great week so far. πŸ™‚

December Wish List ’19

december GIF by Chibird

How are we already halfway through the first week of December? Oh God, this week is going to quickly and I know it isn’t going to slow down anytime soon either!

I was kind of torn this year whether to just add my wish list into a “Christmas wish list” post for the whole month or to separate them… I’ve decided to go for the latter! I have loads of items on my wish list this month purely for my Japan trip and even just for myself to be honest.

I hope you enjoy the final wish list of the year! πŸ˜€

  • Superdry Gracie Cable Snood Womens Scarf (link)

I could really do with a new scarf not only for the winter ahead but also for my trip to Japan. When I was looking around for a new snood, I found this gorgeous Superdry one! I’m not a massive scarf fan… In terms of “normal” ones and I much prefer a snood. I can just shove it on without any faffing about of wrapping. I really like the look of this one because of the soft borg lining inside. I can only imagine how soft and fluffy it will be during the colder months! I also really like the dark pink colour too. This being said, I would like to see this scarf in person before buying in case I don’t like the colour THAT much. 😦

This is a Kickstarter I want to back so much… But I don’t know if I can justify it. 😦 It finishes in 4 days time and I know I have those days to decide if I want to back, but even so… Dispel Dice are a company I have lusted and looked at since getting into Dungeons & Dragons at the start of 2019. Now they have a Kickstarter out with “affordable” dice sets I would like to back… There are just a few factors that put me off… Price and delivery. You won’t receive the dice until August 2021, which sucks! I’ll see if I decide to back these at the last moment. πŸ™‚

  • River Island Blue Button Front Denim Mini Skirt (link)

If there is something I don’t own any of and would love to wear more, it’s skirts. I either wear jeans, leggings, joggers or dresses. I discovered this skirt last month through Helen Anderson in her “TESTING SIZE 14 HIGH STREET DENIM SKIRTS” YouTube video and I have fallen in love! I wanted to try and pick it up in the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals but I never did. It’s something I’ll definitely take a look into picking up in the Christmas/January sales!

  • Elfen Lied Omnibus Volume 2 (link)

I love Elfen Lied, it’s definitely one of my favourite anime and manga series to date and was actually the first anime I watched and manga I read. So, to say it has some fond memories and a place in my heart is pretty accurate. I already own volume 1 of the omnibus and have even pre-ordered volume 3 ad volume 4. This is a series I plan to dig into and read on days off in the run up to Christmas, as well as during the Christmas holidays from work. πŸ™‚

  • Bravissimo Jessie Skater Dress (link)

This is a dress I REALLY want at the moment! I plan to try it on at some point this week as it’s something I would like to pick up whilst it’s on offer. It’s a gorgeous black dress, which will not only be perfect for work and the party season, but also great for my 30th birthday! I don’t have any “posh” dresses if you will and often gravitate towards the same one I’ve worn for 3 years now, which is a bit shit at the best of times… I just want something pretty I can wear for evenings out with Dane and friends. πŸ™‚ I’ve never bought clothing from Bravissmo but as I love their bras, I’m sure I’ll love this dress too!

  • Animal Crossing Isabelle Plush Pass Case (link)

With my trip to Japan getting closer and closer and mine and Dane’s Suica cards now in our possession, I would really like a nice pass case to use during my trip there! I’ve eyed up this plush Animal Crossing one which is in the shape of Isabelle’s head. It has a handy pull cord on it, so if you attach this to your bag, keys, etc you can easily pull it to wherever you need it to go. It’s not cheap however, but this is something I have asked for for Christmas from Dane too… It’s something I’ll keep my eyes peeled for whilst I’m in Japan too if I don’t manage to get one beforehand.

So that’s my wish list for December overall! I know his months is really boring, but I’m saving all the awesome wish list items for Christmas Eve’s post when I write about my Christmas wish list. πŸ™‚

I can’t believe we’re already into the 4th day of December and Christmas Day is 3 weeks today! How crazy is that, huh? 2019 has really flown by…

Aside from Christmas, what items do you have on your wish list? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below. πŸ™‚

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

November Wish List ’19

How is it November already? OH and how am I already back at work after a week off? It’s crazy just how quickly this year has flown. Can you believe there’s only 8 weeks until 2020? It’s mad, it really is! I’m rather excited for November, I have lots of stuff going on and after a week off work to relax and refresh, I’m definitely going into the month, full steam ahead!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this months wish list, I felt constant excitement throughout it for at least half of the items as they’ve already been pre-ordered and will be with me soon… AHHH! πŸ˜€

  • Pokemon Center Japan Dratini Neck Pillow (link)

I feel like I haven’t seen a collection from the Pokemon Center for ages that I’ve loved and the new dragon type Pokemon with their babies is absolutely adorable! As I’m going to Japan at the start of 2020 a neck pillow is something I would like to pick up for the trip. Me and Dane do own one, but I would like one of my own to use. I would love to pick this one up, but at the same time it’s expensive and I need to keep saving for my actual holiday to Japan! If this is available when I’m in Japan, I think I’ll definitely pick it up for the flight home.

  • Invasion Club Otaku Essentials Ita-Bag (link)

I discovered this Ita Bag through Attack on Mew over on Instagram and I really want it for my Japan trip now! It’s only recently come back in stock in the holographic design… If it wasn’t for the fact I’ve bought myself some new shoes, I think I might have ended up getting this! I would keep Persona 5, Animal Crossing and Pokemon pins in there to really showcase three of my favourite things! Invasion Club is a Japanese company, so I could have waited until I get to Japan to pick this bag up… However, the store is located in Osaka which is a JOURNEY from where we’re staying. 😦 I can see me asking for this for Christmas, or just picking it up myself. πŸ™‚

  • Pokemon Sword & Shield Dual Edition (link)

I cannot tell you how excited I am for this game. Like seriously I am itching to play it now! Especially now that leaks have now flooded social media of what the new Pokemon will look like. I don’t care about spoilers in all honesty, I’m going to see them sooner or later! I had a go on the 10 minute demo at the Pokemon Center in London (which you can read about here) and I honestly fell in love! After the shambles that was Sun and Moon, they’ve brought back the old roots that we know and love with Sword and Shield! I’ve bought both so that me and Dane can play together, but I’ll be playing Shield and Dane will play Sword. This is due to exclusives… I want the Galar Ponyta more than he does. πŸ˜›

  • Nintendo Switch Lite – Pokemon Zacian & Zamazenta Edition (link)

Of course me and Dane only own one Nintendo Switch, which is his… So, it was time for me to finally pick up a Switch of my own! I decided to go for a Switch Lite, but I can’t stand the 3 colours that Nintendo decided to come out with, however I really loved the colour scheme for the Pokemon Zacian & Zamazenta Edition. It’s blue and pink, you can’t go wrong! I’ll be getting this this week and I’ve even booked a half day off work on Friday so I can go and pick it up and play! πŸ˜€ Let me know guys if you would like to see a review on this! I might do a quick unboxing over on my Instagram page (theremightbecoffeeblog) when I get it, so keep eyes peeled for that!

  • Quirkory Galar Pony Lilac Metal Enamel Pin (link)

Quirkory have fast become one of my favourite independent artist stores since their release of the A profusion of Eeveelutions & Lunar Spookies Kickstarter campaign, which is full of gorgeous Eeveelution designs in the form of Greek Gods. When they announced this gorgeous Galar Ponyta design over on their Instagram page, I knew I had to buy it. It was for sale on their Etsy page, but sadly this is now sold out and I don’t know if it will be back in stock or not… You could pick this up on either a gold or lilac enamel, of course I went for the latter. I don’t own any pins on coloured enamel, so I knew I had to pick this up purely for how unique it is. That and the design is gorgeous! I hope this and the Eeveelution pins I backed arrive in time for my Japan trip. I honestly need them so I can show them off as much as possible! When all of the pins arrive I will for sure be talking about Quirkory over on my blog! If you love the look of what they do, I’ll pop their Etsy store link here.

  • TobySperring Persona 5 Morgana T-Shirt (link)

I love Persona 5… Everyone knows this by now, right? I love the fact that I am into a game series that actually has a decent amount of merchandise surrounding it. AND now that we’re getting Persona 5 Royal AND Persona 5 Scramble, there will be even more, which makes me a very happy nerd. However, I do love supporting independent artists too and every now and then I will have a search online for some cute AF Persona 5 goodies. This is one I recently discovered and I really love the design and the fact you can get it in a t-shirt makes me really happy.Β  It’s this cute design of Morgana in some blue pyjamas and talking to you about being tired and going to sleep. This is just Morgana all over, with his tagline being to tell Joker to go to sleep. Sadly however, the t-shirt is now sold out. 😦 I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled in the future for the t-shirt to come back in stock.

  • Pokemon Center Japan Dragonite and Dratini Plush (link)

Finally we have another Pokemon item and that is from the same collection from the Pokemon Center as the Dratini neck pillow. I wish, wish, WISH I could pick this plush up. For years (and even still!) I have wanted a genuine Dragonite plush and the fact I can now get a massive one, cuddling its baby Dratini is perfect… But I can’t buy it… I just can’t justify it. This would cost between Β£35-Β£50 to buy which is a lot of money considering I amΒ still making sure to save up for my Japan trip. If this is available there when I go, I’ll probably pick it up, but for now I’ll just have to go without… 😦 This whole collection is perfect and I really wish I could pick something up from it.

So there you have it, my monthly wish list for November! It was so Pokemon heavy and I honestly didn’t realise until towards the end of writing this post. There are only 2 items that aren’t Pokemon related and even then they’re of another gaming series I love AND something to house Pokemon related items in.

Legit me at myself because of all the Pokemon this month… πŸ˜›

I still can’t believe how quickly October went and I already feel like this month will fly! I have so much going on (good things!) and I honestly can’t wait. I’m rather excited for November for various reasons… Most of which are gaming related, both video and board. Would you guys like me to do a little catch up post soon to talk about what I’ve been/will be up to?

Also let me know what you have on your wish lists for November! I always love hearing about things people are wanting/looking to buy. πŸ™‚

Make sure to let me know everything in the comments down below!

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

August Wish List ’19

I really need to save. It’s so hard at the moment considering I’ve just had to fork out Β£250 for a part of my car to be replaced and erm… I kinda bought myself a new camera ready for Japan. Honestly I’m going to save up for Japan. I am. I NEED to otherwise I’ll be going to Japan with no sodding money to spend, or eat with. I have 5 months to go until we leave for the holiday and saving needs to happen NOW.

In all honesty though? I already really want at least 2 items on this wish list for work, as well as in general.

I will resist the urge and be good… I need to. πŸ˜›

Enough of me wallowing in poor pity, on with the wish list for August.

  • Aggretsuko Day/Night Pyjamas (link)

If there is one thing I love buying (and it’s definitely a weakness of mine!) it’s pyjamas and it’s purely because I live in them mostly when I’m at home. Providing I don’t have plans, as soon as I get home from work I’ll get my pyjamas on and get comfortable. These will be perfect for during the summer months, as at the moment I am just purely living in baggy t-shirts and night shirts. EMP has a pretty awesome Aggretsuko line up at the moment, including a couple of hoodies, pyjama bottoms and even some fake Converse.

  • Animal Crossing K.K. Slider Sticker by ncdoggGraphics (link)

I LOVE Animal Crossing and I am still stoked about the new one coming out on the Switch in March 2020. I love playing Pocket Camp daily and would love to grab some sort of Animal Crossing merch for when I’m in Japan. I love the “Yo” design of K.K. Slider and although I’ve added it onto this post as a sticker, I would rather love the hoodie or sweater design as I can only imagine it would so comfortable to wear around the house, as well as out and about when running errands.

  • Pokemon Holiday Night Kuji Travelling Pouch with Bottles (link)

This is something I’ve had my eye on getting (and in one case winning) since I saw it was announced a couple of months back. I took part in this kuji through YY Kawaii (yykawaiimerch over on Instagram). I’ll be talking about the prizes I won soon, as well as this travelling pouch, which arrived yesterday. Yes, I bought it because I want it for my holiday to Japan, as well as travelling in general. This is a good sized pouch and comes with three generous sized bottles that you can fill with your beauty essentials. I’m already planning what product I’m going to pop in there for travelling with. As I said, I’ll be writing a post all about these goods soon, as well as a little bit of information about kujis, how they work and which amazing ones YY Kawaii has coming up soon!

  • Aggretsuko Pencils (link)

I have discovered with my job that I love jotting down notes using pencil… I don’t know why, but I just have! I love Aggretsuko and since season 2 has come onto Netflix (also, they just announced season 3. Who else is excited?!) so I feel merchandise for this is becoming more and more likely everywhere. I don’t need any stationary anytime soon though to be honest. These would just be cool to have whenever I go into meetings and to perk my desk up a little. At the moment I’m using Pusheen pencils… I can’t complain. πŸ˜›

  • Cath Kidston Stanley Lamp (link)

This isn’t going to be something I buy anytime soon due to the price, but it’s a lamp I will be keeping a close eye on, as I would love it to be a part of my home. I don’t quite know where it would go… Potentially by the sofa in our living room… It’s so damn cute and I love it! I can only assume Stanley is the dog but it’s so gorgeous and you can see a lot of precision went into the design, as it’s just perfect. This is something I’ll keep my eye on during the sales.

  • Killstar Amaya Skater Dress (link)

I love a good skater dress, especially one from Killstar. This is from one of their new collections, which represents Japanese school style fashions and manga/anime designs too. This is something I’d love to be able to wear for work but due to the style of the dress (mostly the back with the hanging part) I doubt that would be doable… At least not during the warmer months when I don’t need to wear a cardigan, jumper or my work fleece. I’ll be keeping my eyes on it though, this is something I’ll definitely be picking up in the future.

  • Boohoo Cable Boyfriend Button Up Cardigan (link)

I know it’s summer and we in the UK are currently rocking the warm and muggy weather but I am already thinking ahead to the months when the colder weather will be back and I’ll be wanting to snuggle up into something during my shifts at work. My friend Amy (Writing into the Ether) rocks a gorgeous mustard cardigan and she’s inspired me get myself a mustard cardigan, after years of never bothering. I love my burgundy and mustard colours for autumn and winter, and whilst I own loads of mustard jumpers, I haven’t yet picked up a mustard cardigan. I’ve found this one from Boohoo, which I’m going to keep my eye on. I need to venture around more places first, including charity shops. I know what I’m looking for, super soft and baggy so I can be snuggled and cosy!

So those are the items on my wish list for August! I always worry my wish lists are boring, but you guys never seem to say anything other than the complete opposite!

What items do you guys have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know! Hey, let me know which items you’ve picked up this month too!

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

July Wish List ’19

Where did June go? I felt like it was only yesterday that I was preparing for a nice week off with Dane and then BAM HELLO IT’S JULY! Honestly though, how shite was June weather wise? It was well and truly awful to be fair and I’m glad we’re getting some nice sunshine right now. πŸ™‚

I’m currently sat at my dining table with a gorgeous cup of Ed’s Coffee House caramel coffee and I’m planning on writing as much as I can before I need to head out later for a D&D session! This months wish list was pretty hard to be honest with you as I’m trying to be good right now due to Japan coming up, (I know it’s 5/6 months away but it will be here before we know it!) which is boring but meh.

Anyhoo – I hope your enjoy this months haul! I feel like there’s so much Japanese inspired stuff there. πŸ˜›

  • Vans x Lazy Oaf Old Skool Platform (No longer available)

I know these are limited edition and no longer available (unless you pay an absolute fucking fortune!) but I still want them. I regret not buying them so damn much when they came out last year. Like stupidly regret it. Recently I noticed someone was selling my size on eBay at a decent price. They looked legit and when the seller offered to knock Β£10 off – I bought them straight away. Over a week later I was chasing the seller for my shoes and ended up getting a refund. I was so pissed off… I really wanted the shoes, especially for such a bargain. I’m still on the hunt for these and if you happen to find any in a size 7 for a decent price (no more than Β£60 with postage!) please let me know! πŸ™‚

  • Elfen Lied Omnibus Volume 1 (link)

I cannot tell you how happy I was when I recently discovered that this manga was coming out in English. Honestly my younger 16 year old self would have been over the moon with this coming out. Basically this manga has been running in Japan since 2002 – which is nearly 20 years ago now since it first came out. This was the first manga I read, as well as the first anime I watched. Elfen Lied is pretty much what got me into the things I am today, which is amazing to be honest with you so it really does mean the world to me to finally see the manga in English.

Now you’re probably wondering, “Okay hang on Nat! You said you’ve read the manga… But it’s only just come out in English? How did you read it then?” The magic of translation my friends! πŸ˜› Someone translated it years ago online so I remember when I bought my first laptop 10 years ago (FUCK I FEEL OLD!) I found the manga on a PDF reader and basically flicked back and forth over the pages, reading it. πŸ˜›

It looks like there will be four omnibus volumes overall, which the second one due out in October. I would love to see the anime redone – just like they’ve done withΒ Fruits Basket recently. I’d still love to see Elfen Lied Nendoroid’s released too. πŸ˜›

  • Pokemon Holiday Night Collection Ichican Kuji (link)

This is a kuji I’ve decided to do! I’ve never done one before to be perfectly honest with you so this will be a first! It just looks too good to resist having a go on. I’ve regretted not taking part in some of the Animal Crossing kujis in the past and that in itself annoys me. I’ve got this through YY Kawaii on her Instagram merch page (link and link) and the prizes are adorable! There’s a couple of plushies, some holiday travelling essentials, pots and towels. It makes a change seeing some “useful” items in a kuji as opposed to the usual charms, towels and random figures. I really hope I get some good pulls from this!

  • Insert Coin Clothing Persona 4 Teddie Pocket Tee (link)

I’ve already pre-ordered this tee, but I just had to mention it here today as it’s too good not to! πŸ˜€ I LOVE Persona 5, as my readers all know and I have had a go at Persona 4 Golden (which I am currently stuck on!) which I also really love. I’m reading the Persona 4 manga too, which I actually enjoy more than the game… But this may be due to the fact I’m stuck on it… πŸ˜› Either way I saw the cute Teddie pocket tee and just knew I had to have it! I recently bought myself an amazing black pair of mom jeans from New Look and I intend to wear them together loads throughout the summer, as well as the rest of the year. πŸ˜› Of course I would be a fool not to wear this to Japan too.

When this tee arrives – I’ll definitely be doing a post on why I love Insert Coin Clothing’s tees so much! I have this one, as well as their Persona 5 Morgana tee too.

I noticed this mug was going around my Twitter feed about a week or so ago and honestly I have fallen in love with it and I really need it in my life. I really don’t need anymore mugs, but if I didn’t pick this up I would honestly be a fool and regret it until I did. I LOVE Animal Crossing and as an ex barista I also love the coffee theme of the mug. It was always one of my favourite parts of Animal Crossing: New Leaf to daily go and work my shift at The Roost Cafe, as well as sit and drink some pigeon coffee. It looks like the mugs will go on sale on Sarah Dandh’s store on 10th July – so I’ll be making sure to pick one up. πŸ˜›

Finally we have one of my favourite independent artists out there, who has done it again with her recently Kickstarter campaign! πŸ˜€ As soon as I saw she was going to be addingΒ Animal CrossingΒ designs to the campaign, I put myself down for two pins and it will be both KK Slider and Isabelle who I opt for. I actually already have an Isabelle pin by Ohayou! but it won’t hurt to have another one, will it? I don’t have a KK Slider as of yet and look how damn cute this boi is! I honestly can’t wait to get these already as I’ll wear them together on my jacket(s) as well as potential ita bag in the future. This campaign has now finished, BUT Ohayou! is a good egg and will probably have them for sale in her store anyway. πŸ˜›

So that’s my wish list for July! Again, I honestly cannot believe we are over halfway through 2019 now. It’s scaring me as not only does it mean I’m getting closer to being 30 but it also means it’s closer to us going to Japan and I am SO nervous for that!

Which items do you have on your wish lists this month? Do you have your eye on any of the items I have too? Make sure to let me know in the comments below! πŸ˜€

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week, almost the weekend now, eh?
