October ’16 Wish List

Hello to autumn, Halloween, hot chocolate and of course October. Not my favourite month of the year but pretty damn close. I’m excited for so much this year due to living in the house. WOOHOO!

I have my eye on a few things at the moment but I constantly think that Christmas is looming so I may as well wait. Well it’s under 15 Sunday’s now until Christmas… WOW! Those will fly by. So it’s time to start thinking about what goodies I want from Father Christmas. 😛

I kid it’s too early for that!

 photo October 2016 Wish List_zpsjqkrlugo.jpg

  • Romantic Bear WOW Long Lasting Lip Colour 6 Pack – £2.75 (link)

These are such a bargain! You get 6 for that price, not just the one. Which is amazing! I think this is a cheap brand and I was cautious at first but after reading the reviews everything about them sounds pretty damn good from both reviews on the item on Amazon as well as from YouTubers. I have a feeling Dane may have ordered these for me whilst I’ve been writing this post due to how cheap they are. If he has I will be so excited for them! 😀

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

I nearly bought this in September but I had to be good and left it… That and I have a lot of Disney mugs in our cupboard at the moment. BOO! It’s a really nice sturdy mug that would be great for hot chocolates. I may still pick one of these up in the future… I love Disney mugs too much, especially when they’re 101 Dalmatian or Lady and the Tramp themed.

  • Pokemon Kanto Edition Monopoly Board Game – £27.53 (link)

I have been on the search for this in stores for MONTHS! I’m not even exaggerating that! Me and Dane want this as a part of our house and we have found every other Monopoly board game other than this. I did find it on eBay for £29.99 and ages ago on Amazon for a staggering £45.00! It’s currently under both those prices from a seller on Amazon and I’m hoping it’ll still be there on payday.

  • Berrisom Lip Tint Cleanser – £7.42 (link)

I never knew about this until I started to search for the lip tints on Amazon and it looks pretty good. It’s a cleanser that you use on the lips to remove the lip tint. It looks and sounds fairly straight forward to use and sounds like a good idea. If and when I get the Berrisom/Romantic Bear lip tints I’ll be picking this up too to go along with them.

  • Pokemon Center Original Kuttari Sleeping Cubone Plush – £13.55 (link)

I love these plushies that the Pokemon Center in Japan have released and I have two. A mew and an Eevee which Dane bought for me. This alongside Ampharos are definitely on my Christmas and birthday wish lists this year! Dane bought me Mew for Christmas last year and Eevee for my birthday this year so I’m hoping he will repeat this again. I want a nice little display of them in our  living room cupboard.

  • Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint 6 Pack – £14.03 (link)

These are the lip tint tattoos that everyone is talking about and either going crazy for, or aren’t that arsed about. I recently found some of these for sale in TK Maxx and went to buy one, but at £9.99 each I thought they were a bit pricey… I’m glad I never because for under £20.00 you can get all 6 shades which I think is great! Like the Romantic Bear ones I think Dane may have ordered these for me too. I hope he has as I have wanted to try these since YouTubers started to discover them.

  • Mafia III on PS4 – £39.99 (link)

I am so damn excited for this game to come out! Less than a week and it’ll be mine. I plan to get it the day it comes out so I can play it all of my weekend off of work. I swear I saw this for £35.00 earlier last week on Amazon and I wish I had ordered it there and then!!!

So that was my wish list for October! I actually forgot to add some Kat Von D goodies but that can be for another post I guess. I would have also added some Christmas Lush items but that can be put into a separate post for sure!

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

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

August ’16 Wish List

Ha I don’t know why I’m writing a wish list when I have no money to buy anything! I guess that is why it’s called a wish list. 😉 Either way I love making wish lists and skint or not I’m not going to stop making them anytime soon! This one has a couple of home related things on, woohoo.

 photo August 2016 Wish List_zpsutagvef9.jpg

  • Pusheen Handbag Mirror – £6.99 (link)

Recently I broke my handbag mirror, which I was really sad about considering it was a fox one. The mirror has broken in half and it’s currently awkward as hell to apply anything through it. I love Pusheen, have done for years so I am so damn glad that the merchandise is becoming easier to buy in the UK now.

  • Topshop Vinnie Mouse Shoes – £18.00 (link)

I only discovered these today thanks to the Instagram Disney Find! I would like some new flats as the majority of mine are all tattered and old, and who can say no to a cute pair like this that look like Mickey or Minnie Mouse? These aren’t cheap, but Topshop shoes are great quality and I don’t mind paying these sort of prices. I also love how they’re pointed, as I love pointed flats.

  • Deadpool Lanyard – £8.99 (link)

It’s not news that I love Deadpool, so whenever I see Deadpool goodies I want to buy them all! I would like a lanyard for work so I can keep my card on it, as well as my locker key. I don’t know when I’ll pick one of these up, but I intend to as soon as I can really. Can make sure I look cool at work! 😛

  • Marks & Spencer Tailored Fit Boxy Checkered Shirt -£25.00 (link)

I eyed this up recently when I was in M&S and it is beautiful! I think they have their autumn range in stores already going by all the darker colours, and knitwear that they have out for sale at the moment. I love checkered shirts and have gone through many in the past. This one so far has one negative review, so it’d definitely be something I would try on before I buy! I may have to look into picking this up for when September comes with its autumn weather. It would look great with a pair of jeans, or a skirt.

  • Pusheen Round Mug -£7.99 (link)

I think I have already mentioned my love of Pusheen, and it isn’t that I need anymore mugs, as I have loads (mostly Disney ones…) but how can I say no to this Pusheen mug? I know a few people I follow on Instagram who have this mug and it just looks so damn cute! I think I may need to treat myself to this in the future, as it would be lovely to have hot chocolates in with marshmallows and cream!

  • Maybelline Baby Lips Pop Art in Blueberry Boom -£2.99 (link)

I have two out of the three from this collection (you can check out the review for Grapefruit Zing here) so why not get this one too? That and I love blueberry so it’d be silly for me not to pick this up. I can’t find it in stores ANYWHERE so I don’t know if this is an online exclusive. I’ll be making sure to order it in the future, I don’t want to let this one slip through my fingers.

  • Disney Animator’s Collection Princess Mug – £8.99 (link)

I have been waiting for the new Animator Collection to come out in the UK for a couple of weeks now and it has slowly started to make its way over here. YAY! I don’t need anymore mugs, but I love this one. The Princess’s as little toddlers are so damn cute! My favourite one is Pocahontas as she is so damn adorable looking! I’ll probably pick this up too at some point. ^_^

So that is my wish list for August! I need to be good this month as I have spent way too much money lately. I’ll be spending the majority of the month in the house playing games and tidying our things away. Yay!

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 see you soon!

July ’16 Wish List

Oh hello July, can you please bring us some more lovely weather instead of all this vile rain!? Yes the weather has mostly been crap in June, but there was also some gorgeous weather too! Which I think a lot of people are forgetting about.

But enough about the weather, it’s now July and you know what that means? It’s time for a new wish list! This one wasn’t exactly straight forward to put together but I managed it in the end, and the majority of the items on said list are hella KAWAII!

 photo July 2016 Wish List_zpstet0lztf.jpg

  • Disney Pocahontas Meeko Pop! Vinyl – £10.99 (link)

I’ve expressed on my blog before how I’m not a huge fan of Pop! Vinyl figures, and would much prefer to spend quite a bit more money on Nendoroid’s. However, there are just some characters that Good Smile Company won’t bring out, and there are just some Pop! Vinyl figures I just cannot say no to. This Meeko one is so cute, and who can say that it isn’t, huh? I would want the Pocahontas one to go with Meeko too, eventually. May as well get the set.

  • H&M Porcelain Mug – £3.99 (link)

Due to the house I am constantly looking at home related things these days, mostly because I still have a lot of stuff to buy, but also because it’s kind of better than looking at clothes. I think this must be something that happens when you move out… Anyway! H&M have this cute matching cat set, but you have to buy them separate however. I probably have enough mugs bought for now, but I rather like the look of this one too! It’s not too in your face either, as the cats face is inside the cup itself, with some little cat ears on the outside. Very cute!

  • Jeffree Star  Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in shade Rose Matter – $18.00 (or £14.00 from Cocktail Cosmetics when in stock) (link)

I love the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks, FACT PEOPLE! I want all of the shades someday, but for now my collection has had to be told on hold due to the house. However, that doesn’t stop me from wishing after shades, especially Rose Matter, one of his newest shades. It’s a coral shade, which I love! However, I don’t really know if it suits my yellow skin tone… I’ll wait until I’m next in Cocktail Cosmetics Sutton Coldfield store to check this shade out.

  • Bee and PuppyCat Comic Book Vol. 3 – £10.96 (link)

I LOVE Bee and PuppyCat and it has fast turned into my favourite cartoon/comic book this year. Volume 3 isn’t due to come out until December, which sucks as it seems like so far away, but it’ll be well worth the wait! I have volumes 1 and 2 and have enjoyed them both a lot, so I already can’t wait for the third installment.

  • Deadpool Badge Pack – £1.99 (link)

I recently started using my backpack again, and as I used to collect badges when I used it beforehand, I thought I would start that little hobby up again. Now as I love Deadpool, I definitely need to add a Deadpool badge or two to my bag! I currently have some South Park, Adventure Time, and Kurt Cobain badges at the moment.

  • Disney Store Finding Dory Sea Otter Soft Toy – £12.95 (link)

I saw this little cutie when I was down in London visiting my friend Sophi, and I was going to buy him but I left it. I love otters, so to have a cute little otter plushie would make me really happy. BUT it isn’t a necessity, just something I am lusting after. Maybe if it ever goes into the Disney Store sale.

  • H&M Small Bowl – £3.99 (link)

The bowl is just like the cup, with a cats face inside and cute ears around the edge. Unlike the cup I would buy two of these, one for me and one for Dane, or guests. They’re just simple but really cute, something nice to perk you up in the morning to have cornflakes in before work.

  • Belle Muerte Hex Black As Your Soul Bath Bomb – £3.00 (link)

What hurts the most about this item is I want to buy one, but it is constantly sold out! I like how cheap it is mind! They have all sorts of variations, from this black one, to blood red, green, purple, etc. I know I’ve never been a fan of any bath bombs apart from Lush, but that won’t stop me from one day trying this one. Quite frankly I cannot wait!

  • H&M Plate With A Print – £3.99 (link)

Again, like the cup and bowl this is similar apart from the plate doesn’t have any little eats on it. This again will be nice for breakfast, as well as for lunch. I’d buy two of these to go with the bowls, for myself and Dane, or for a guest.

So that was my wish list for July! I know there isn’t anything super special on there, but to be honest since buying the house, I have a feeling my life might be a little boring. BUT every cloud has a silver lining, because I hope to do more house/home related posts from now on!

What items are 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 have a great week!

London Haul

 photo Photo 19-06-2016 9 04 53 pm_zps72nthk0b.jpg

Wow what a long week it has been since returning from London! Of course I do apologise for how quiet I have been the past two weeks, but as I said on my Twitter account, I have been way too busy with the house to think or have time to do anything with my blog. Sorry about this, but I know that my regular readers understand, and for this I love you all and thank you as much as I can!

I have just got back from London after visiting my good friend Sophi, and I had an amazing time! I ended up spending more than I intended to as we went shopping around London, as well as in Stratford shopping centre. So I thought why not show all my lovelies what I bought down in the smoke!

I said from the start of my trip to London that I wouldn’t buy any clothing, as I don’t need any, but I found that was the majority of what I bought. Oops! I picked up three t-shirts, and a coat.

 photo Photo 19-06-2016 9 09 20 pm_zps7salqyz3.jpg

The first t-shirt I picked up was this Rugrats Reptar one from the Nickelodeon shop in London. It wasn’t cheap to be honest at £20, but I thought it would make a nice treat and was a real throwback to my childhood as I loved watching Rugrats growing up. So much so that I still watch it to this day if I fancy a bit of a nostalgia trip. As you can see it’s a purple t-shirt, with Reptar on, as well as his name in metallic pink writing. You can pick this up online here.

The second and third t-shirts that I bought were both from HMV, not usually a place you would think sold clothing. They do sell t-shirts though, usually relating to bands, TV shows, movies, and games, etc. You get the point! These two t-shirts were both £12.99 each, however HMV have an offer where you can buy two for £20, which is a bargain really! So of course I took them up on that offer, because it would have been rude not to.

 photo Photo 19-06-2016 9 12 08 pm_zpsaefwhead.jpg

The Harley Quinn one is to coincide with The Suicide Squad, as it’s meant to be the same as the t-shirt she wears in the movie (which FYI I am excited to see when it comes out!). I just love the design of it, it’ll be something nice to rock in the summer with shorts… Like Harley Quinn really! A girl I work with (Hi Rhi! ^_^) has this t-shirt too, and I heard about it from her before my trip to London. As you can probably gather this is a woman’s t-shirt. Sadly any men out there who want it won’t find it in HMV. I would have linked back to this for people to look into buying from HMV, but it isn’t on the website sadly.

I also picked up a Deadpool t-shirt from HMV. It had to be done, as I LOVE Deadpool and I knew whilst I was in London I wanted to pick up some Deadpool goodies, or at least one. This was the only thing I actually managed to pick up, and I don’t regret it. This is a pretty straight forward tee with just a picture of Deadpool with his arms folded, nothing spectacular or special. I don’t mind that to be perfectly honest. This is a mans tee, sorry ladies they don’t have any specifically for us! I don’t mind this though as I picked up a smaller size so it would fit snug on me. You can find this on the website, and I have linked it here for you.

As well as the two t-shirts I picked up from HMV I also bought myself a few other things, not clothing related. I picked up these Kurt Cobain pin badges for my backpack, as during my trip to London I decided that I would start to use it again more often. I love Nirvana and Kurt so I though it would be cool to get some badges with his face on them. These were a steal at £3.99 and I can’t wait to pop a few on my backpack. I also picked up a DVD copy of Forrest Gump after visiting Bubba Gump Shrimp. It’s a film I’ve been meaning to buy and add to my collection for some time now, as it’s one of my favourite films. I put it on for me and Dane to watch when I got back from London, and I cried so many times that I ended up losing count. Oh dear. 😦 It was another bargain at only £2.99!

My favourite purchase of my trip to London was definitely my new coat, a yellow raincoat! I have been after one of Topshop’s raincoats for years now, and every time I saw one I liked the look of it seemed to sell out really quickly, if not straight away. I saw this one in the Oxford Street store and decided to grab it with both hands before I was never able to buy one again! I’ve bought it two sizes too big for me so it didn’t feel snug, but instead was more roomy and baggy. Reason being so that in autumn and winter I can layer up and not feel uncomfortable. I found from wearing it around London for a couple of days that this coat is incredibly warm, and will be perfect for rainy days! The hood is huge which I’m really pleased about, as I love any jacket, coat, or hoodie was a hood that swamps my whole face. I can’t wait to wear these with my Jake Dr Martens boots (you can read about them here) as they’re both yellow and will look amazing! With all this rain we’ve been having they’ll work perfectly together. Yay! You can fine this raincoat on Topshop’s website here.

I mentioned before that I went to Bubba Gump Shrimp whilst in London and shortly after having a meal there with Sophi, I decided I wanted to get some goodies from the gift shop. Before heading down the restaurant gave us our blue flashing glasses that we’d had drinks in. As Sophi already had a blue glass already, she kindly gave me hers so that me and Dane could have one each in the house. I love that she does things like that! I also bought two pint glasses from the gift shop, which were meant to be two for £10, but the guy only charged me £5.98 for two. I didn’t say anything and accepted how cheap they were! One is going to be for my dad whenever he comes to visit me at the house, and the other for myself and Dane to use whenever. They’re just bog standard pint glasses, which will come in handy for pop, beer, etc. By the way I do apologise for the pint glasses still being wrapped up. I don’t want to open them until me and Dane have moved into the house. But you all know what a pint glass looks like anyway! 😛

Of course I couldn’t go down to London and not pop into the Lush on Oxford Street. That would just be out of order, and it was one of the last shops me and Sophi popped into on my first day in London. I had promised Dane (and myself) that I wouldn’t buy anything… But I caved in and ended up buying two things. DOH! I took in five empty black pots and bagged myself a free pot of The Prince of Darkness face mask, which I was super happy about! I haven’t used it yet, but I hope to soon.

The two products I bought were Supertramp bubble bar, which is an exclusive to Oxford Street, and their newest bath bomb Lava Lamp (link here), which Oxford Street did release when they first opened last year, but discontinued it shortly after. I imagine to work on a better formula and scent for it… Who knows! Either way I thought I was going to go crazy and want to buy more, but alas I only really wanted to get my favourite exclusive, that being Supertramp, and I’ve always wanted to try Lava Lamp. I’ll be giving them a go soon enough and reviewing them. Woop!

 photo Photo 19-06-2016 9 22 52 pm_zpsmrlcrylv.jpg

The majority of the rest of things I bought were food and drinks related, either Japanese or American. I said that I would be coming back with loads of Japanese snacks, but I didn’t really think about bringing this much back! Boy do I have a lot to show…

 photo Photo 19-06-2016 9 22 58 pm_zps0zejm2ws.jpg

All my Japanese goodies are mostly from Japan Centre, but I also grabbed some stuff from an independent Japanese supermarket too. I bought two types of Pocky, banana and matcha (green tea), my two favourites! They cost less than a £1 each so I bought two of each, because why not! I also bought some random goodies too such as Pokemon wafers, a panda wafer, as well as three bottles of ramune soda! One is missing however due to me and Dane drinking it… Oops!

I also bought plenty of American sweets, mostly blue raspberry flavoured as they have always been my favourite. Just loads of random things. These were mostly from Gobstoppers in Stratford shopping centre, and I’m just going to say that I will never go there again. I will try the one in Birmingham to see what it’s like, but I judged the Stratford one so hard. They were selling out of date stock from over a year ago, AT FULL PRICE, the staff were rude, and they charged ridiculous prices for things you can buy in Asda for 99p. A complete joke, and I won’t be going there again…

 photo Photo 19-06-2016 9 23 02 pm_zpsrumn1bnv.jpg

Another sweet related place I bought stuff from was the legendary Choccywoccydoodah, which I had never heard about until my friend Sophi told me about it. We ventured into the cafe there, which was amazing, and to be honest (for me) the best part about it. The shop itself was lovely, with some beautiful creations, but at the same time I do feel like it was really tacky… Sorry (I’m not sorry…)! I ended up buying some chocolate, one little slab of dark (which you can buy here), and a larger slab of chocolate with green tea flavour (which you can buy here). I’m excited to try these, as the dark chocolate we had in the cafe was gorgeous! It was ridiculously overpriced to be honest, and I doubt I’ll ever buy anything from there again. I feel bitchy saying that, but it just seems a rip off for what you’re getting, especially when I’m not a huge chocolate lover anyway.

 photo Photo 19-06-2016 9 28 34 pm_zpsiff9tlm0.jpg

Apart from the goodies that I also picked up for Dane (a Fallout 4 Dogmeat Pop Vinyl!, a book, and some sweeties) that is all I bought! My friend Sophi gave me and Dane one of the nicest moving in presents we have received so far, with it being matching Disney mugs! Lady and The Tramp for me, and Stitch for Dane. We love them, and will be using them lots when we move into the house. She also gave me a medium Pink Sands Yankee Candle that she didn’t want, as well as a Charity Pot lotion from Lush that she didn’t want either. All the goodies! I intend to give her something very soon as a thank you for having me stay at hers whilst we were in London. That and it’s her birthday soon!

So that was all the stuff I bought whilst in London! I wish I could have ventured to more places that sold Japanese related things, but that will be for next time.

What have you bought nice for yourself lately? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

April ’16 Wish List

Oh hello April, you’re here early?! Easter has come and gone, and the kids are currently on their Easter holiday’s still. Spring is officially here too, the clocks have gone forward, and people are moaning about not getting any sleep. Oh wow is them! 😛

I’m still on a spending ban, and apart from buying my boyfriends birthday presents last month, I have been really good so far! Alas, a spending ban doesn’t stop me from creating my monthly wish list, so here is it for month number four of the year.

 photo April 2016 Wish List_zps15jvjrnz.jpg

  • Pokemon I Love Mew Plushie – £27.55 (link)

I remember these cute plushies being announced back before the start of 2016 and I just KNEW that I would need one in my life, mostly this one pictured about. The little cutie is giggling with its eyes closed and hands on its cheeks. I don’t think these are very big plushies, which is nice for popping on the side, or on your bed. There are various people on eBay selling these, at various different prices, and from mostly Japan. I love Mew, they’re my favourite Pokemon (alongside the Eeveelutions) so I kinda need one of these in my life. Childish as it may be, I don’t care. Life is short!

  • Deadpool Pewter Keyring – £4.50 (link)

I love Deadpool… I think people who come onto my blog know this from just reading my profile alone! I loved Deadpool before it was cool by the way 😛 I don’t like to hoard keyrings, this is something I used to do when I was younger and I’ve grown up from that now! I’ve been looking for a pewter Deadpool keyring for ages, and as of yet I haven’t been able to find one. Whilst my hunt for one has somewhat come to a stop, at the same time I’m still waiting, as this is out of stock at Forbidden Planet. OH WOE IS ME! This was actually one of the items I would have bought for my boyfriends birthday, but alas I wasn’t able to.

  • Lady and The Tramp Boypants – £4.00 (link)

There is a lot of Lady and The Tramp items in this wish list this month… I don’t know why! For once there just seems to be a lot of said items on the market at the moment… Which makes me happy! I have enough knickers to last me a life time, but I just can’t say no to anything with these two cuties on. Topshop don’t only do their 3 for £10 on their knickers, but they also do student discount. So whilst I’m meant to be on a spending ban, I may just have to treat myself to these very soon. You can never have enough knickers!

  • Reese’s Pajamas – £25.99 (link)

Just want to first of all say, these are from Primark but as I rarely go out shopping anymore and don’t step foot into Primark when I do, I’m having to resort to eBay for these. I love Reese’s peanut butter cups. Fattening, but oh so yummy! I know loads of people who love them too, and I’ve made my own “healthy” versions of the yummy snack. In the summer last year I picked up some short pajamas from Primark with the same Reese’s logo on. I love the look of these pajamas as they look snug and comfortable, with the awesome Reese’s logo all over the bottoms. I could just buy the bottoms for £14.99 but for another £11.00 I may as well get the whole set.

  • Lady and The Tramp Letters Mug – £7.99 (link)

As I have previously stated, I love Lady and The Tramp so when I saw that The Disney Store had a new mug up for sale, I just fell in love. I want to order it as soon as I get paid from work, or at least pop into the store and pick it up, alongside the Eve mug, which I’ll be talking about shortly. I love Disney mugs, and whenever I get my own house that’s pretty much what all my mugs are going to be! xD

  • Billabong Iti Jacket in Black Cherry – was £96.00 now £48.00 (link)

I am after a new jacket for spring and summer. I fancy something red or yellow. 😛 This is a winter jacket to be honest, but I still really like the look of it for autumn and winter time! It is pretty damn expensive at £48.00, so I am keeping my eye on it to see if it’ll go down even further. I’ve seen this in person and it is a gorgeous jacket and one that is perfect for seeing you from season to season. I love it in the black cherry colour, it’s a gorgeous colour and something different. You can also pick it up in Off Black and Grunge Green, so if you like the look of it but want a different shade to the dark red, you have a couple of options.

  • Shades of Kawaii: A Cute Colouring Book – £4.99 (link)

I LOVE colouring books, and recently me and Dane spend out evenings and days off colouring in together, and watching movies. They’re just so damn relaxing to do, and we just both enjoy doing them together. He has a Deadpool one which I bought him, and I have three, a dog one, a seasons one, and an animals one. Yeah, I have enough to last me a lifetime… But I’m sucker for anything Japanese and kawaii, so of course I really like the look of this colouring book. I can see us doing more and more colouring over the next couple of months.

  • Eve 3D Mug – £9.95 (link)

The other mug I said I was going to talk about from The Disney Store. I have the Wall-E mug that goes with this one, and when I finally get my own house I really want to get this mug so that I have the cutest (and my favourite) Disney Pixar couple ever. I love my Wall-E mug and how it’s a square shape, so it’d be nice to get this one too, which is a more “normal” shape. Perfect for hot chocolates, and cups of tea. It is more on the pricey side, but sod it. We only live once.

  • Lady and The Tramp Socks – £3.50 (link)

The final item on my wish list that I’ll be talking about is of course Lady and The Tramp themed. Oh boy! 😛 As you can see, they’re these lovely ankle socks, again from Topshop like the boyshorts. I don’t really need any socks, but meh I can’t deny these! Like the knickers Topshop do an offer on socks, 3 for £8 so I think I may have to take up this offer when I buy the knickers. 😛

So that was my wish list for April! I’m still on my spending ban, but I may have to treat myself to a couple of things on this list, it depends how I feel, and also how my bank account feels. 😛

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

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

Christmas Presents!

Merry Christmas one and all! Even if it is a tad too late to say now… Everyone is saying, “Happy New Year!” at the moment, aren’t they?

ANYWAY! Christmas has come and gone once again, and as you can tell from my absence the past couple of days, I’ve had a really good one this year. I spent the morning over at my boyfriend’s house with his family, which was lovely. We hadn’t done this yet, so it really did make a nice change. Then in the evening we came over to my house, which was super chilled out. Perfect Christmas!

I worked Boxing Day, which sucked but it was a laugh with my colleagues and we all talked about our Christmas Day’s, and what we got for Christmas.

Tonight I’ll be sharing what goodies I received for Christmas! As I’ve stated the past couple of years when writing these sorts of posts, I am in no way bragging, or showing off about what I received for Christmas. I love reading posts like this (because I’m a nosey cow!) so I always imagine people would enjoy reading mine too… Especially anyone who loves foxes, and anime/manga related goodies, as that’s what the majority was which I received.

I also want to apologise for crappy pictures. These were taken late at night, I was shattered after a busy day, and I knew if I didn’t get something taken, I would have nothing to write about now as I’ve literally not had any time.

So, here are my presents!

As you can see I received a lot of gifts, and this isn’t even all of it! Nope, there is more…

As I mentioned in my holiday haul post here my dad bought me this gorgeous Michael Kors Riley handbag! It has been my go to bag ever since the holiday, and I can see it being used pretty much forever now… I love using it for work as it’s so light to carry and it fits the right amount of items in.

One of the best presents I received for Christmas was nightwear. I haven’t received any for quite some time, so when my boyfriends parents bought me this fox slipper socks, and my boyfriend bought me these woodland animal pajamas, I was thrilled! The pajamas he bought me are so damn comfortable as well! I wore them from Christmas Day to this morning, and I wish I could be wearing them now. I love long-sleeved pajama tops!

My boyfriends family were really generous and lovely this year with their presents to me. My boyfriends brother and his girlfriend bought me Lush, and although my boyfriend states that they didn’t know which gift set I was after, they bought me the exact one! I’d eyed this set up only a week ago in Lush, due to it coming with Twilight Shower Gel, which is a limited edition product, and only comes out in the Lush Kitchen. I haven’t used it yet, but I can’t wait to.

My boyfriends parents bought me various little bits and pieces, from the fox slippers mentioned earlier, a cute little candle with squirrels on it, and this beautiful fox pillow. I snuggled it all morning after opening it, and it now sits lovely on my bed… I’m leaning against it right now, and it’s so fluffy and comfortable! They also bought me some Pandora, but I’m saving that until last.

My families gifts were lovely, and to the point. Alongside all these my mom also bought me a navy dressing gown, but I never got a picture of it, sorry. One of the nicest presents she bought me was this gorgeous fox mug! I had told her I wanted it from Avon for a while, and she offered to pick it up for me. Alas she told me it had sold out, and had secretly hidden it for Christmas. She also bought me a cute little fox purse. I’m unsure what I’ll use it for at the moment, but I’m sure I’ll soon find a use for it. The hair towels were a complete surprise, and I was keen on getting some new ones, so these pink ones will do just the job! I love using these towels to dry my long hair, they really do the trick. As my mom did last year, she has done it again and bought me a new face powder, only this time on by Laura Geller. So far since getting it a few days ago I’ve been using it and it’s lovely, I cannot complain.

My brother is great when it comes to presents, he always gets good ones, and usually he’ll get perfume. He never knows what perfume I’m after (because I don’t really talk to him about that sort of thing) but he always seems to get me something that I think, “Ooo that’s nice… Meh too much money…” and it makes me smile. This year he has bought me the latest scent by Marc Jacobs, Decadence. I can’t even describe the scent for this. It’s pretty unique, and reminds me of something that Thierry Mugler would come out with. The bottle for this does astonish me too, with its little handbag design. This came in a gift set with a shower gel, which I used on Boxing Day. I intend to wear this on my birthday.

My boyfriend bought me so much stuff! Like SO much stuff! But in return, I also bought him lots of things. The majority of what he seemed to pick up for me, they were fox themed. He’s never bought me this much fox related stuff before, which surprised me. He bought me a fox umbrella, and a fox car air freshener from a company called The Fox Project, a charity which helps foxes that have been hurt, and need urgent treatment. Along these he also bought me two pairs of fox socks from M&S, as well as a fox mug. Said mug now lives at his house, as I’m always pestering him for tea and coffee.

Alongside fox related items he had a habit for buying me lots of books this year (as I did for him too), and Umaru-Chan related goodies. He bought me two of these later items, one being a t-shirt, the other this adorable little notebook! I’ll be using that for work as a blog writing book. As I already mentioned, he bought me books, four in total. Three being books 10, 11, and 12 from the Nana manga, and one being the Pewdiepie book, This Book Loves You. I intend to go through it on my day off Wednesday.

As well as that he also picked up this cute little polar bear, as something I can snuggle when at his house, a Simon’s Cat calendar for next year, and a little Yankee Candle Christmas Eve votive candle.

He also bought me a special Pandora charm, but I’ll be going into more detail about that shortly.

These were two of the best presents I received from my boyfriend. I knew I was getting the Umaru-Chan Nendoroid, but the Baymax Pop! Vinyl was a complete surprise to me! I had told him I wanted it, but I didn’t know if he would buy him for me or not.

I am a massive fan of Big Hero 6, and Baymax really melted my heart. I can’t even remember how many times I cried when we went to watch Big Hero 6… It was a lot though! I’m not a huge Pop! Vinyl fan, I think the majority of the figures they release and sell look crap with how their paint work has been done. HOWEVER some of them do look amazing, and Baymax is one of these. He’s pearlescent in colour, and is bigger than normal Pop! Vinyl’s, which I actually really like.

As for Umaru-Chan she’s a gorgeous little figure, and one I fast fell in love with. I have spoken on my blog before about how much I love the anime that she originates from, and so when I got into the anime, my boyfriend knew he had to order the figure for me. I want to open her so badly, but she’s just too nice to open her. Instead I shall just gaze at her from afar and one day-dream of opening her.

Finally we have the two Pandora charms I was given this year. One from my boyfriend, and one from his parents. His parents gave me the little puppy charm (on the right) that is wearing a cute little red Father Christmas hat. It is such a little cute charm, and I wish I could have got some better pictures of it, but alas I couldn’t at the time. He’s sitting down, with his tongue sticking out. It’s a real cutie to add to my bracelet.

The charm my boyfriend bought for me is the fox (on the left) and it isn’t actually an official Pandora… But I don’t care about that! Pandora are taking too long to release a fox charm (you watch, they will now!) so when my boyfriend saw this one for sale on The Fox Project he snapped it up. It’s a cute little fox lying on a log, and I imagine trying to have a snooze. I love this charm so much because it really does stand out on the whole bracelet.

So that’s all… Wait… That isn’t ALL my presents? Is it?

My mom bought me a Kitchen Aid for Christmas. You know, like the ones they use on The Great British Bake Off? YES ONE OF THOSE! I was gobsmacked when I opened a massive present to not only see this, but a ceramic bowl, as well as a five piece kitchen/culinary set to use with the mixer as well. For weeks my mom has been lying about this massive box in the living room, saying it was something my brother had ordered… But it never budged. Until I came home for Christmas, and it had moved and was covered in wrapping paper. I am so excited to use it, even though I’m not 100% sure when I will yet. When I do, I’m sure I’ll have some sort of blog post about it.

Now, that IS all I received for Christmas. Although I did receive a wash set from my sister-in-law, and nephews, and I am yet to see what friends have bought me.

But yes, that is all my presents from Christmas ’15! What did you get for Christmas? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below, or even link me to your blog post about it if you’re a blogger.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you have a nice rest after Christmas. I would love one, that’s for sure. 😛

Christmas Present Ideas – Star Wars Lover

Oh my God I cannot believe we are less than ten days away from Christmas now! It has really flown by, and I will admit that I don’t feel in the festive spirit at all! This being said, I am still excited for Christmas itself to spend time with my friends and family, especially my boyfriend.

As I said before I went on holiday, I would be doing my present ideas posts until the Wednesday before Christmas. So far we have two down, and two left to go including this one. Today I’ll be focusing on the perfect gifts to give to a Star Wars fan, whether they be small stocking figures, or huge splurges for loved ones. There will be loads of choice on this post!

  • Darth Vader Latte Mug – £11.99 (link)

Who doesn’t like a good mug eh? Especially one that has Darth Vader on it saying he likes his coffee on the dark side… Well I’d love to receive this anyway. This would make a great Secret Santa present, or one for a brother who is hard to buy for, but loves Star Wars.

  • Men’s Stormtrooper T-Shirt – £29.99 (link)

This is very much so on the expensive side for a t-shirt, but totally worth it for how awesome it looks! I wanted to buy this for my boyfriend for Christmas, but it is on the expensive side for what it is, so I left it. I’ll probably pick this up for him next week when I get paid as a present for his holiday. He’s a snowboarder, and like most snow sports people do, he’ll be off on a holiday to do just that at the start of next year. This t-shirt will be perfect for that!

  • Yoda Bath Foam – £2.25 in the sale (link)

Marks and Spencer love Star Wars this Christmas, and whenever I have been in store that’s what makes up the majority of their Christmas range. They released three Star Wars bath foams this year, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, and Yoda. The only one left online (and from what I’ve seen in store) is Yoda… Which is to be expected really. This would make a perfect stocking filler for young ones, as well as for Secret Santa.

  • Millennium Falcon Tin – £15.00 in the sale (link)

This is another present idea I had for my boyfriend but it would be rendered pointless for himself. However any die-hard Star Wars fan would love this, and I’m sure the tin would be used loads too. I think this would be an ideal gift for teenagers. I wouldn’t know who else to buy it for to be perfectly honest.

  • Han Solo Ice Cube Tray – £9.89 (link)

It’s Christmas, alcohol is flowing, and soon enough New Years will be joining and the same will happen all over again. What goes lovely in an alcoholic beverage? Ice of course! What better gift to receive on Christmas Day than a funky Star Wars ice-cube tray? There are loads of different styles to choose from, but I opted for the Han Solo one as it just looks cooler than all the rest. There is a style for everyone though. I would choose R2D2 myself as he’s my favourite character.

  • The Force Awakens: Monopoly – £34.99 (link)

In my family we don’t do this, but I know a lot of families who sit around at the table together before, and after dinner, and play board games. Monopoly is usually a good one to play, considering how long it can go on for before someone wins. Over the years Monopoly have brought out various different limited editions boards, this one being one of their newest. I’m sure they have brought out a Star Wars board beforehand, but even so I imagine this will sell out the closer we get to Christmas.

  • Star Wars: Battlefront available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One – between £33.99 – £34.99

I am pretty sure that every Star Wars fan, and gamer alike will already own this, considering it came out a month ago. I’ve not yet played it myself, but I intend to this weekend when I see my boyfriend next. I’ve watched him play it on Twitch and it looks like such a beautiful game! This will be perfect for any man in your life, providing they don’t already own it.

  • Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Chopsticks – £9.99 (link)

I’m pretty sure I have mentioned these on my blog before, and if so they really are worth mentioning again. You can get these in various different colours, for various characters including Yoda, Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Obi Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalkers green lightsaber, Anakin Skywalker, Mace Windu, Count Dooku, and Kylo Ren from the new film. These make great stocking fillers for anyone who is a fan of Asian food. You can also get these in versions that light up, but of course they cost a little bit more money.

  • Vans Darth Vader Slip On Shoes – £34.99 in the sale (link)

I own these bad boys, and they’re some of my favourite shoes. I’m really pleased I could find somewhere online who were still selling these, considering they left Vans nearly a year ago now. These are unisex shoes so both men and women can rock these! If you like the look of these as a present for someone, I would snap them up now whilst they’re cheap, and available in most sizes. They also stock some Stormtrooper ones too, which look pretty cool. They’re the same price.

  • Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blu-Ray – £50.00 (link)

I don’t as of yet own the Star Wars movies on Blu-Ray, although I would like to own them all one day. For so many discs, £50.00 is a real bargain! If Star Wars fans don’t own this already, this will make an ideal gift for them for sure! Just make sure that they own a Blu-Ray player before you buy this… However this being said most consoles have Blu-Ray players inside of them, and Blu-Ray players don’t cost much to pick up anyway.

  • Death Star Mood Light – £19.99 (link)

This was one of the final things I found when researching for this post, and it’s quite a nice little light really. The Death Star is one of the iconic things from Star Wars and this mood light really does show this. This would make a lovely gift for a young child who is just getting into Star Wars, or even a nerd who wants to jazz up their office a little bit.

  • BB-8 Interactive Robotic Droid – £129.95 (link)

I saved the best present idea until last. I want this, my boyfriend wants this, my friend Sophie wants this, and I think everyone who loves Star Wars wants this little cutie. He’s an adorable little robot which you control through your mobile phone. It’s only tiny too to be honest, which makes it even cuter. I really hope I can buy one for myself after Christmas. This is a very luxurious present, but I think anyone of any age would love to open this on Christmas Day and play with it as much as possible, I know I would.

So that is my third present ideas post, I only have one more left! I couldn’t resist talking about Star Wars, especially considering it is due out Friday! Me and my boyfriend have already booked our tickets to go and watch it Saturday, and I cannot wait.

Are you going to see the new Star Wars movie? Do you hope to receive any Star Wars goodies for Christmas? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time take care all, and I hope everyone’s week is going well. We don’t have long until Christmas now…

Christmas Present Ideas – The Fox Lover

I love foxes, regular readers, friends, family, and just about anyone who knows of my existence will know just how much the cute little ginger guys (and girls!) will mean to me. I don’t know why I love them so much to be honest, I just know I always have, and that my love of them has only grown stronger the older I have got.

I will grow old and be a lady whose home you visit, and when you leave tweet “OMG I’ve just been to this old bags house and it was full of bloody fox things. Fox cups, fox pillows, fox slippers. Hell the woman had a pet fox!” That’s if Twitter still exists when I’m really old.

This being said, when me and my boyfriend get our own home, it will be full of all things foxy and geeky. That’s just the way we roll!

But I know I’m not the only fox lover around, so I thought I would come up with a good list of fox present ideas for anyone who also have a fox lover in their life, like me. Some of these present ideas will also be great for stocking fillers, or even Secret Santa gifts! I know I’d love to receive them all (I’m sure people have already bought me them… Or I already own them)! 😛

  • Sass & Belle Be Free Fox Tribal Adventure Plaque – £3.50 (link)

For anyone who owns their own home, or even just spends loads of times in a certain room of their home (their bedroom, office, etc) this will be the perfect gift for them. It’s a simple, yet pretty plaque that has a tribal fox on it, underneath it states, “Be Free”. The perfect mantra for that person who might lead a busy life. I would love this to hang up in an office myself, and for £3.50 it really won’t break the bank. The perfect gift for a younger person, or even a Secret Santa idea.

  • Avon Fox Mug – £12.00, on offer for £7.50 (link)

I already have this down on a wish list somewhere, which I think my mom is going to buy me for Christmas. This mug is perfect for any fox lover, especially for winter time. This little cutie has a removable wool cosy on it, which has always looked comforting in some way when on mugs. This will be perfect for cold mornings for tea and coffee, and chilly evenings for hot chocolates. I cannot wait to get this!

  • Paperchase Fox Compact Week To View 2016 Diary – £4.50 (link)

There is no gift at Christmas than a new diary to take people into the New Year with. Well, I find this myself anyway! This diary will be great for people of all ages. Children and teenagers for school, college, and university, as well as friends who have busy schedules. Plus it’s not huge either, so it’ll be perfect to chuck into a backpack, or a handbag for on the go. I would have this on my own Christmas wish list, but I have my filofax now, so all I need for that is some new inserts. This again will make a great Secret Santa gift.

  • Aroma Home Home Knitted Fox Slipper Boots – £25.00 (link)

These aren’t on the cheap side, but they do look (and feel from seeing them in store) worth the money, and would make an extravagant gift for a friend or a family member. If there is one gift I like to receive at Christmas it’s anything warm, from a dressing gown, pajamas, or a good pair of slippers. I would love some slipper boots like these myself. I think a teenager would love to receive these for Christmas, and we all know it sucks to get clothes at that age on Christmas Day.

  • TK Maxx Orange Plush Heatable Fox – £7.99 (link)

I actually own this, and I can safely say it is amazing! Not just for when I’m feeling chilly, but it’s also really good for when I’m suffering from period pain. It only takes a couple of minutes to warm up in the microwave and then BAM it’s ready to cuddle up with and keep you warm. This could make a great Secret Santa gift if you’re maximum spend was £10.00. Otherwise it would make a great stocking filler for a teenager, especially one who has recently started her periods and needs something to help the ache go away for a while. You can get these pretty much everywhere as well to be honest! I bought mine from TK Maxx but in store I paid £9.99 for mine, so it’s good it’s not a couple of quid cheaper.

  • John Lewis Midwinter Fox Snow Glove – £15.00 (link)

I eyed this up in store when I first visited the new John Lewis in Birmingham, and I LOVED it! The Christmas section in there isn’t massive, but it really packs a punch. When I spotted this fox snow globe I knew I wanted it. However, whilst I love snow globes I get extremely anxious owning them now. Years ago when I was four years old my mom bought me a snow globe from an old market by where we live. I had it for years and then one day it got knocked off of my shelf and smashed everywhere. I was distraught, I had a lot of memories with that snow globe. So I’m always wary of owning another. However, for people who collect snow globes, they will love this one for sure! It has a gorgeous little fox inside of it with a wreath around its neck. This isn’t cheap at £15.00, but for the price it would make someone a lovely present.

  • Sugar Bunny Shop Doki Fox Button Set – $5.00 (link)

I LOVE Doki Fox! A cute little character created by the people behind Sugar Bunny Shop. He’s a cute little fox who has a chick as a companion, and loves eating dumplings. These are great for a gift to a young fox lover, and especially as a Secret Santa present. My boyfriend bought me some of the stickers with this little cutie on last Christmas, and they really warm my heart. I would loved the badges to stick all over my backpack. They do deliver to the UK by the way, so don’t worry about international shipping!

  • Urban Outfitters Wooden Fox Bowl – £14.00 (link)

I’ve seen this in Urban Outfitters every time I have popped in with friends, and my boyfriend, and each time I have eyed it up and contemplating buying it. It isn’t cheap for what it is don’t get me wrong, but it’s really lovely all the same! Would be nice to keep on a vanity to hold jewellery in, or even keep on a sideboard by the front door for change. The possibilities are endless with something like this! Would make a great present for someone who might be moving into a new home before Christmas, or just after.

  • Claire’s TY Beanie Boos Medium Slick The Fox Soft Toy – £14.00 (link)

How adorable is this? I want to get him to keep for myself! The TY Beanie Boos are really lovely soft toys to buy for anyone of any age, but I will of course recommend these for babies and children. They’ll make lovely little stocking fillers for your own children, family members, or friends children. Of course you could buy these for someone of a more mature age too!

  • Alex Monroe Sterling Silver Fox Pendant in Silver – £126.00 (link)

This is a really pricey present but I wanted to include it on here as it’s a nice one for if you want to spoil a loved one, or a daughter. I would love this myself but it is really pricey… It would definitely be something extravagant. Opening something like this on Christmas Day would be a real treat for anyone, and to see a little fox appear in the presentation box is just something extra special. I don’t really have much to say on this, it kind of speaks for itself.

  • Claire’s Faux Leather Fox Purse – £10.00 (link)

This purse is adorable! It reminds me of the sort of purse my mom would buy me when I was a kid. Therefore making this a lovely present for a teenager. It would also make a great Secret Santa gift. If you get this for someone for Christmas, make sure to pop a silver coin inside for luck. I’m really old-fashioned and do this… 😛

  • Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom Animal Encounters by Will’s Wild Animal Encounters – Predator Encounter – £150.00 for two people (link and link)

This is the last present I will be mentioning as I am saving the best for last! This is something my boyfriend hasn’t booked me for Christmas, but for my birthday at the start of January, which I’m so excited about! It’s an hour of meeting cute predators, and having cuddles with them. You get to meet foxes and feed them chicken, so you definitely get up close and personal. They do offer some more similar experiences with foxes which you can find on the website. I’ll be making sure to take loads of pictures of this as and when it happens. But this would make a lovely gift if you want to treat your other half, a parent, or friend, or a sibling to something really special! They’re based up in Telford, Shropshire so it might be a trek for some, but totally worth it! At the moment Groupon have a couple of offers up there, so you can snag some of these at half the price. It’s a nice treat for after Christmas, and definitely a lovely surprise as well.

So that was my present ideas for people who love all things foxy! What did you think of it? If you liked any items on the list in particular make sure to let me know about them in the comments down below! Or even recommend some fox related products yourself.

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

May Wish List 2015

I swear to God, April has been a tough month and before May 21st, it’ll be even tougher. I’m towards the end of my second semester of uni and that means lots and LOTS of uni work! I have five assignments due in and I need to start working on my dissertation as soon as the 21st has gone. I’ve already started it, which is good of course.

Anyway, wish list. I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to be honest, and I had to have a think about what I had seen and lusted after. Some I have mentioned before, but I’ll talk about them differently this time around.

I think after the 21st I’ll treat myself to a few things from this list for working so hard… Yeah… Maybe if I’m not skint anyway!

  • Yankee Candle Tea Lights in Berrylicious.

I own this scent in a large jar (which I spoke about here) and it’s by far one of my favourites! However, due to how rare this candle is now appearing to be, I’ve decided to save it until I move out and have my own home to burn it in. The same can be said for my newest candle, Red Velvet (in a large jar! YAY!), which I picked up at the start of April. I have had my eye on the Berrylicious range in Yankee Candle’s sale for a bargain. I recently bought the Easter Vanilla Cupcake and bunny tea light holder in Clinton’s sale so I now have a cute little tea light holder to burn my candles in! So I might pick this tea light set up in the sale. Berrylicious is such a yummy smell and will be perfect for summer.

  • 101 Dalmatians Lucy Tsum Tsum.

Oh my Gosh, everyone is in love with these and at first I didn’t get why… Until I saw them for the first time in the Disney Store and now I know why. These little guys are so cute and adorable! They come in small, medium and large sizes. The large ones are huge and would prove good companions if you feel miserable and want something to snuggle into. I think they’d also work good on long journeys and you want to have a snooze. They look like pillows. However, I’ve only been interested in the small ones and they’re just as cute. I’ve had my eye on Lady from Lady and The Tramp but from having a look on the Disney Store website, I’ve discovered that they have 101 Dalmatians ones! This is my second favourite Disney film so I was instantly attracted. Lucky has always been my favourite puppy (for obvious reasons!) and as a kid whenever I found something 101 Dalmatians themed, I usually bought it. I was obsessed with it at one point and it was a bit crazy. But sod it, we’re all a little crazy aren’t we? But enough rambling! I’d love all the other puppies available too, which are Patch and Rolly. I can see me ordered these as a treat when I get paid at the end of the month.

  • OPI Nail Lacquer in This Colour’s Making Waves (from Hawaii Collection).

I love OPI and over the past couple of years they have become my favourite nail polish brand. Sometimes there are just collections and shades that come out that I really love and need in my life and this is one of them. This colour really is making waves over the blogging community and everyone appears to adore it. I’ve read review, after review and the more I have read, the more I have wanted it. I had a look at it in store the weekend and it really did appeal to me. I would have bought it there and then but I don’t think my boyfriend would have allowed me without a fight… SO I have decided to save it as a treat for when I’ve handed in all my assignments for semester two. That seems a pretty decent bargain to me! The shade itself is a shimmery teal with blue and greens in there. It reminds me of Fuerteventura (where I was somewhat brought up as a child) and the ocean looks just like this. It would just remind me of that and I miss that place like a fat kid on a diet misses cake. So I kinda need this in my life…

  • YY Kawaii personalised iPhone case.

I’ve mentioned this Etsy seller before and she is amazing! I really want her to customise a case for me! I was close to ordering one at the start of the week, but I left it. I’m going to wait until I get myself a new phone before I finish uni. I may as well, as whilst her cases look beautiful, they’re also expensive. So I wouldn’t want to buy one for my iPhone 5, only in three or four months time to get an iPhone 6. To then need to order another one. So I may as well wait it out and think about what I would like. I have some ideas and it’s definitely a nerdy Pokemon themed one, especially Eevee! I want a Starbucks cup on there, as well as some other cute little pink things and such. I can’t wait to order it!

  • Eve 3D Mug.

Who doesn’t love Disney Store mugs, eh? I love them and once a year I may buy myself a new one. I used to buy them all the time when I was in college and undergraduate uni but I’ve grown up a little since and been good and saved money. However we all need to be a big kid sometimes and when I fancy being just this, I look to Disney and Pokemon for my childish fixes. I have the 3D Wall E mug and I want the Eve one to match! I wanted this mug for about a year and every time I went into the Disney Store it was sold out, the Wall E one too! Then they told me it wasn’t coming back into store, but to check online. They’d all gone from there too. However last year on a random shopping date I FOUND WALL E! He was in the sale with £2 knocked off of him. If Eve had have been there too, I would have bought her as well. When I have my own home, all my mugs will be Disney and anime related. Because I’m cool that way.

  • Lanolips Lip Ointment in Apples.

I’ve been lusting after a Lanolips lip ointment for years, but due to how expensive they are… I’ve never picked one up. Plus everywhere I’ve looked, they’ve never had this one in stock. So I left it. However, Feel Unique now stock this one and it excites me very much! I’ve wanted to pick up the banana one too, but as I’m allergic to banana and it contains actual banana, I wouldn’t want to worry it would set off my allergies. This is expensive and it’ll have to be a very special treat to myself to pick it up.

  • How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran.

I can’t say I have loved Caitlin Moran’s books… I was bought How To Be a Woman years ago and I just couldn’t get into it. I don’t know if it was me at the time and the frame of mind I was in, but I just had to stop reading. I was so excited to read it too as the person who bought it for me said I was similar to Caitlin, but when I read it I kept thinking, “fuck off, I am nothing like this!” but I will someday give that book another go. However, I fancied buying this whilst food shopping as not only was it cheap, but the plot sounded right up my street! And the style of writing that I do myself. I will definitely buy it someday, but maybe not yet as with uni work, my reading has been put on hold. Which I’m pretty gutted about! I love reading so much.

  • TAFI Deadpool Leggings.

I love me some leggings and whilst I love Black Milk ones the most, they aren’t very purse friendly and whilst I often purchase mine via eBay (I make sure they’re legit, etc) I just want to find something new… Etsy is great for this and whilst some don’t look as good as Black Milk, some are designs that Black Milk haven’t even done yet. This is one of them. I rather like Deadpool and I’m super excited about the movie with Ryan Reynolds (who is also one of my favourite actors) these leggings are just perfect really. They look great quality and just look cool and I’d be able to dress them up with all sorts. Including postage, these would only cost me over £17. BARGAIN when Black Milk will cost you nearly £100 including postage! I recommend checking out TAFI if you want some cool leggings for a bargain.

So that’s my wish list for May! I do need to save money so I may only buy one or two items from this list. I need to save money for bills, uni, as well as for trying to put a deposit on my own home. It’s tough going but I guess this is being a grown up.

What’s on your wish list this month? Let me know in the comments!

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