14 Things I Love

some_text

Today is the soppiest day of the year, of course it’s Valentine’s Day and it’s definitely like Marmite… You either love it or you hate it, there is no in between really. Well I say that but I’m one of those in between people… I hate Valentine’s Day for various reasons, but I don’t love it. The only thing I like about it is being able to buy Dane a card and write a soppy as fuck message inside for him. I wasn’t going to this year, but alas on a mini food shop I ended up picking up a card. DAMN!

So instead of a soppy post like some people may be posting today, I decided to write about 14 things I love instead… 14 stands for the date by the way. 😛

  1. Pokemon – Everyone knows this is one of the things I love and I have done for nearly twenty years now! I love every aspect about it including the games, anime, the figures, etc etc. I could go on about what I love about it. It’s just such an interesting series and is one of the many things that takes me back to my childhood. Mornings spent watching the anime on SM:TV Live, as well as playing the first and second generations on my Game Boy Color during the weekends off school and summer holidays.
  2. Perfume/fragrance – I love wearing perfume, even though on the rare occasion I won’t be in the mood for it, so I won’t wear it. I wear all sorts of different ones, but some of my favourites to name are Thierry Muglar Alien, Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, DKNY Red Delicious, Gucci Envy Me and Dior Addict. I’m sure I can think of more than this mind!
  3. Food – I have always loved food, especially savory food. I would eat bags of crisps over a bar of chocolate any day! I love to eat food, cook food, watch food being cooked, thinking about food, everything you can think of to be honest. I especially love Japanese food, as well as Italian food as well. OH and you can never go wrong with American food as well. One of my favourite things to cook is probably my homemade piri piri fries, just because I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love them.
  4. Lipstick – As the only make up I wear is lipstick I love them so damn much. I love all sorts of lipsticks of course, especially liquid lipsticks. When I first starting to wear lipstick properly I opted for dark pink shades, which moved onto red, then various pink shades and lately I wear a lot of dark shades such as dark raspberry pink, various purple shades and even a dark purple/navy shade lately. I can only see me going darker too! I can’t stand nude shades or light pink, they don’t suit me at all and look awful on me.
  5. Holographic – I am a holosexual through and through and it reminds me of growing up as a teenager and wanting all these things… But sadly I wasn’t able to have them. Due to the whole 90’s trend coming back, of course holographic stuff has too. I only really pick up any holographic goodies if I really like the look of the, and I don’t know why but the holographic look just makes me so happy!
  6. Foxes – These are my favourite animals with dogs and otters coming second and third. I don’t know what it is about them that I love, maybe it’s that they’re ginger… Maybe it’s that they’re cunning… Maybe it’s because they’re fluffy? I don’t know but I think they’re beautiful animals!
  7. Studio Ghibli – One of my favourite anime film studios and the same place that has made one of my favourite films, Spirited Away. I love how creative and unique the stories and characters are that come out of Studio Ghibli, as well as how beautiful the art style is as well. Me and Dane own all of the Ghibli movies to date and I love watching them throughout the year, but especially with people who have never seen them before. I love seeing people fall in love with them.
  8. Lady and The Tramp – I do like Disney but there’s only a handful of the films that I really love and fan over. Lady and The Tramp is my favourite Disney film and one I’ll always keep close to my heart. I just remember watching it when I was a little girl and falling in love with Lady, Tramp and the other dogs. Jock is definitely one of my favourites too! The story is just beautiful and at the time was probably a story line seen in romantic movies, so the fact they brought it to a children’s film was so good.
  9. Goodsmile Company Nendoroid’s – These are little figures based on Japanese anime and manga series, however it has shifted more over to the Western trends such as Disney movie characters (Frozen, Star Wars, Marvel etc) and even some game characters (Animal Crossing, Metal Gear Solid, Uncharted, etc). Both me and Dane LOVE Nendoroid’s and we are constantly eyeing up new ones to buy… They’re not cheap though so they’re definitely a treat whenever we get any. I need to do a post soon about which ones we’re both lusting after.
  10. Duvet Days – This is definitely something I love! I don’t get them as much as I used to due to being busy with work, or the house, or other things. BUT saying this I am currently sat up in bed typing up this post, watching The Last Leg. At this moment in time I cannot possibly complain. 😛 I just love duvet days where I can lie in bed for at least 3 hours on my iPhone scrolling through YouTube and Instagram. These make perfect weekend mornings for me.
  11. Coffee – As a trained barista I love knowing how to make a perfect cup of coffee, but do you know what is even better? Having my own coffee machine to make coffee shop style coffee at home! I LOVE IT! Apart from loving coffee in that way, I also love coffee flavoured things, as well as coffee beans covered in chocolate. I am that weirdo who loves the coffee Revels and Roses. 😛
  12. Bubble baths – I swear I was a mermaid in a previous life! Before all these trends of “being a mermaid” came around I always joked about this. I LOVE baths and I could spend hours in the bath reading books, scrolling through YouTube and Instagram on my phone, and even doing some writing in my journal. Even as a child and teenager I would sit in the bath for hours on end and just add more hot water whenever I felt chilly. Showers I’m not so arsed about, but baths are just heaven to me! I’ve always had a fascination with water too and I don’t know why to be honest, so much so I’ve written stories about water before and various novels as well.
  13. My best friend Gabriella – I mentioned her recently on my Galentine’s Day post, which you can read here. I’ve known Gabriella for nearly 10 years now and I tell you it has FLOWN by! But I love her so much, she is like a sister to me and we get on so well. We talk daily and whether we’re feeling great or like shit we’re always there for each other no matter what. We’ve both supported each other the past month about different things and if I’m ever in the shit and need someone and Dane isn’t around, I know she’ll be there for me no matter what. I love her so much. :’)
  14. Dane – I said Valentine’s Day is soppy but I don’t recall saying there wouldn’t be any on here… 😛 But of course I love Dane. He’s my boyfriend, my best friend, my soul mate and the best person I have ever met. He’s always there for me no matter what and even when I’m a miserable bitch and take stuff out on him, he’s always there to give me a cuddle and be understanding of whatever has happened. I just love him so much, I can’t even describe it. He’s my light in the dark, the apple to my pie and as I’ve started to joke, the stink to my fart. 😛

So those were 14 things I love! I’m sorry this post isn’t anything special but I wanted to do something for today but only worked something out at the last minute. 😛

What 14 things do you love? Please make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time all, take care and whatever you’re doing today, have a lovely day. ^_^

My Perfect Galentine’s Day

You’re probably wondering what Galentine’s Day is… Well I wondered the same thing myself recently when Eventbrite introduced me to the idea. I loved the idea and jumped at the chance!

Galentine’s Day is the day before Valentine’s Day and is a day to celebrate your best friends. I know what you’re thinking, another day, another “special” day for it. BUT I actually really like this idea as whilst Valentine’s Day to me is an excuse for shops to make money and couples to be even more sickly and soppy than they probably usually are this is a nice day to celebrate your best friends.

When Eventbrite told me about what the day means I instantly thought about my best friend Gabriella and all the things we could do together on Galentine’s Day.

With a week to go until Galentine’s Day I decided to come up with a list of things that me and Gabriella do on our days together and what you could do with your besties on Galentine’s Day too!

some_text

First of all I’ll write what we would do if we go out.

  • As we live an hour’s journey away from one another it’s always good to have a long catch up over a cup of coffee… As well as a bitch. We love bitching. 😛
  • Depending where we go will depend where we go for coffee, but our coffee place of choice is always Starbucks! You can’t go wrong with a lovely Starbucks coffee.
  • If there’s any around we’ll always go into a geeky shop or two. Wolverhampton is one of our shopping places of choice and Forbidden Planet there is amazing! It’s not the tidiest Forbidden Planet in the world but you’ll always find some goodies in there. It’s like a jumble sale full of exciting things.
  • We always have a nose in Primark for any snug jumpers, or t-shirts we can pick up. In the past we’ve bought matching jumpers that resemble one that John Watson would wear in Sherlock. We’ve also bought matching pajamas, because why not, you can never go wrong with Primark pajamas!
  • We don’t just go and look around geeky shops though, we do also look in shops with Yankee Candles as we love them! Gabriella’s favourite is Season Of Peace, a Christmas scent and mine is Sweet Strawberry. We both dislike cinnamon scents, they give me massive headaches and I’m sure they do the same thing for Gabriella.
  • Talking about joint loves is always a must and lately we’ve both been talking about Yuri On Ice, a new anime to come out of Japan. I’ll pop a trailer about it above so you can see what it’s about for yourself.
  • Sometimes we’ll go for food at Nando’s, which is a habit we have tended to keep doing when we go shopping in Wolverhampton. Can never go wrong with a “cheeky Nando’s”… Eww did I really just say that???
  • Something I love about going out shopping with Gabriella is when we head back to mine or hers. Depending if we have food out or not will depend on food wise when we get in…

So the best thing to do on a girly day out is go shopping in both of your favourite shops, maybe buy yourselves a matching treat to remember the day! Keyrings are good, as well as clothing. As I said me and Gabriella have bought matching jumpers and pajamas before.

Going for hot drinks is always a good thing if you want to have a long catch up, or a break from shopping. If it’s chilly outside it’s always great for having hot drinks! Although in the warmer months you may just want to drink colder drinks… Starbucks cold coffee and Frappuccino’s are the best for this!

 photo Photo 05-02-2017 4 06 43 pm_zpstr6o8sei.jpg

Then finishing the day off with a meal is always a nice way to rest after lots of shopping and gossip! Nando’s is one of our favourites.

some_text

However not everyone wants to go out for the day. Maybe the weather is rotten and you want to stay in? Well this is how we would have the perfect Galentine’s Day girly evening!

  • If we don’t fancy going out we stay in and watch films and TV shows, play games, chill out and eat and cook yummy food.
  • In the past we’ve had a marathon of our favourite actor’s movies (two in particular are Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy) as well as some of our favourite series, such as Sherlock and Lord of The Rings. We are yet to marathon The Hobbit trilogy.
  • We don’t just watch films and TV shows though, we also play games as well… Or we watch Dane play games and talk about whatever is on the screen. We’ve played the Lego games in the past… But we do mostly just watch Dane.
  • Whilst we do all the above things we have to have snacks and drinks! Some of our snacks of choice are Pringles, chocolate, soft drinks and of course coffee! We love coffee so much!
  • We also cook yummy food whenever we stay in and depending on our mood depends on what we cook. We’ve cooked pizza before but my favourite is Gabriella’s macaroni cheese recipe, which she recently showed me so I can make it from scratch at home. It’s the best macaroni cheese I’ve ever had and sadly I don’t make it as good as she does.
  • Of course we get into our comfiest clothes or pajamas and settle down for the evening. Sometimes I’ll light a candle but I always have a candle on in the house. Lately I’ve been burning salted caramel and mint chocolate scented candles.

Sadly I won’t be able to see Gabriella on Monday so we made up for that by going out yesterday instead. We went to Trentham Gardens and walked around admiring all the dogs that people had taken with them. We of course had a look around the shops, grabbed something to eat for lunch, drank coffee and chilled out. It was lovely and I had an awesome day. This is where I’ve taken all the pictures for today’s post!

some_text

Hopefully I’ll be able to have a proper girly day together with her soon. I’m so damn proud of Gabriella this past year as she has worked so hard for what she has right now and I knew everything would work out for her in the end. I am proud to call her my bestie. :’)

What would be your ideal Galentine’s Day? If you’ve got a lot of best friends and people to keep track of, whether it’s Galentine’s Day OR Valentine’s Day you could always set up your Galentine’s Day event and track registrations online. Make sure to let me know your Galentine’s Day plans in the comments down below!

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

27 Facts about Me for My 27th Birthday

some_text

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR NATALEE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

So as you may have gathered by now it’s my birthday and of course it is today. WOOP! I’m not going to lie I am writing this the day before my actual birthday as I plan to spend tomorrow chilling out… Well today now! I plan to have a lovely day with my family whilst Dane’s at work and then go out with them all for a meal in the evening. Saturday is the day when me and Dane will go on a little adventure together for my birthday. I’ll definitely be writing about that at some point in the week.

BUT for now I wanted to write something about myself for my birthday other than what I’ll be doing… So I came up with sharing 27 facts about me to coincide with my age. This was actually awkward as hell to do as I couldn’t think of a whole lot… But I gave it my best shot and I hope you enjoy this post!

some_text

  1. I’m allergic to bananas due to my hay fever allergy, which is mostly affected by tree pollen. If I eat bananas my mouth swells up and gets itchy. It sucks!
  2. As you may not have noticed already I LOVE Pokemon and have done since the first time I played Pokemon Red on my cousins Gameboy Color.
  3. Due to previously working in Costa Coffee I had a lot of training as a barista and officially trained to be one towards the end of my career there. I still use these skills in my current job and it’s a skill I am really proud to have.
  4. My favourite colour is purple and red is a close second due to it being the colour that suits me the most to wear.
  5. Due to how relaxing it is I love cleaning my bathroom and even in previous jobs I rather enjoyed it. I just pop my music on or Netflix/YouTube and get on with it!
  6. I love reading manga over novels, my favourite manga being Nana which I recently finished reading.
  7. I can’t choose one but my top 5 favourite films are Forrest Gump, Precious, Spirited Away, The Green Mile and This Is England.
  8. I love to write and although the past year I have hardly had any interest in writing a novel anymore, I have since then realised that I would instead love to write my own comic book with someone drawing the art for me.
  9. My top 3 favourite animals are foxes, otters and dogs.
  10. I have leguminophobia, which is a phobia of baked beans.
  11. When I order coffee I usually order a flat white with vanilla syrup.
  12. The only make up I wear is lipstick.
  13. The first anime I ever watched was Elfen Lied and it’s still one of my favourites!
  14. I really enjoy making cocktails, especially creamy ones… If that makes sense. 😛
  15. I’m hoping this year that me and Dane can add an addition to our family… NO NOT A BABY! We want a puppy. We want to get a miniature schnauzer.
  16. One of my favourite shops to buy from right now is Ohayou Clothing.
  17. I love anything Japanese but especially the food! Katsu curry is my favourite, alongside salmon sushi.
  18. I mentioned earlier that I love Pokemon, my favourite Pokemon are Mew, all the Eeveelutions, Cubone and Dragonite.
  19. I’m a console collector and currently own a SNES, PlayStation, PS2, PS3, PS4 and a GameCube. I also collect handheld consoles and currently own a GameBoy, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Advance, Nintendo DS Lite and a Nintendo 2DS.
  20. Jackass is one of my favourite TV shows, followed by This Is England and Teachers.
  21. I have too many baths! I just love them as I find them relaxing after a long hard day.
  22. Three bands I want to see before I die are Daft Punk, Queens of The Stone Age and The Bloodhound Gang.
  23. I want to go to Japan before both me and Dane turn 30.
  24. I collect Black Milk Clothing pieces. So far I have 6 and I love them all!
  25. Both me and Dane also collect Nendoroid figures by Good Smile Company. They’re cute little figures mostly inspired by Japanese characters, but more recently some characters from the west have appeared around too.
  26. I do pole dancing as fitness and have done for quite a long time on and off. Although I am currently not doing it I hope to save up enough money to buy my own pole to use at home.
  27. I’m like a magpie when it comes to anything holographic!

So that was 27 facts about me! As I said I did struggle a little but I hope you all like the facts I decided to share with you all.

Which one was your favourite to find out about? Plus tell me a fact about yourselves in the comments down below!

I’m sure I’ll be sharing what goodies I got for my birthday in a couple of days! I know I’m really excited to share what Dane has bought me as I’m super excited to see what I got.

Until next time take care all and I’m off to enjoy being old. 😛

Woohoo we are well into June now and I can only put the month going by so quickly down to the house! Me and Dane have been really hard at work with the house, which sadly means my blog has been rather neglected lately… I do apologise for that, but I hope my regular readers will understand my reasons why.

However I have just started back at work, so whilst a part of me doesn’t have ANY time now (because of still working on the house) I do have a more time on my hands to get a couple of posts written and scheduled a couple of days a week.

So I thought I would do a not home related post, and instead do a currently one instead, as I haven’t done one for a while.

Watching – I haven’t really had much time to watch a whole lot due to the house, but at times I have managed to catch up on my Netflix and 4OD in the mornings and evenings.

I’ve found myself watching a lot of Only Fools and Horses, which has surprised me to say the least. I do really enjoy the show, but sadly Netflix only has two series on, and a series with all the specials. I want all the series damn you! I was contemplating buying all the series on DVD to just binge watch when we move into the house… But we shall see.

I’ve also been watching a lot of 24 Hours in Police Custody, as I hadn’t realised there was a new series out until my friend Gabriella told me about one episode she had watched. I love TV shows like this, and seeing bad people go daaaawn (down).

A new TV series I’ve been watched recently is The Preacher, which I think is exclusive to Amazon Prime. It’s based off a comic book, and let me tell you it is amazing! Dane told me about it due to Joseph Gilgun playing a main role and thought I might want to watch it. I love Joseph Gilgun, he’s such a talented actor, and definitely one of my favourites. If you aren’t sure who he is, he plays Woody in This Is England, and Rudy in Misfits. He’s really funny in The Preacher as he plays a vampire. I would recommend it to everyone to check out. It’s basically about a preacher… What more can I say?

Reading – I’m naughty… I haven’t really been reading because I’ve not had any time TO read anything. The only thing I’ve really been reading lately are home magazines (can you tell I’ve just bought my first home? It’s so bloody obvious!) just to gain some ideas for the house, both decorating and interior design related. I’m currently flicking through the latest edition of Style at Home which is my favourite one to pick up. It’s cheap at £1.99 and there are loads of great ideas in there from both the writers of the magazine, to average people like you and me, which is what I like about it the most. I think it’s a great magazine to pick up for new home owners like myself, or even if you’re renting and want to get some ideas of how to spruce your place up a bit.

Listening – At this moment in time I’m listening to Nirvana’s first album Nevermind, and it is pretty much all I have listened to the past fortnight. Oh dear… I am obsessed with it to say the least and have especially been playing it whilst decorating the house. Don’t know if Dane or my dad approved, but it is tough! I have always liked Nirvana since a young age when my brother first showed me some of their songs, but I never really listened to their albums until recently. Why? I honestly don’t know! I’m terrible when it comes to music, I listen to bands who no longer exist, or don’t make any more music. I never listen to newer bands. I think it’s because all the newer music is so shockingly shit these days. I don’t know…

As well as Nirvana, I’ve also been listening to a lot of Nightcore. I really wish I wasn’t, because it’s not like I can pay to buy an album. All of their music is on YouTube, which is a pain to download! I’ll admit when I’m moved into the house and settled, I’ll be downloading enough Nightcore songs to make at last two albums, if not three! I find it the most relaxing music to listen to whilst traveling to work, as well as when I’m in work on my break.

Eating – I’ve had chip shop so much whilst me and Dane have been decorating the house. I also forgot how gross Pot Noodle are, I only ate one and decided that one was enough! I’ve also discovered that Tesco sandwiches are amazing, and having a Tesco Express down the road from my house is lethal. So yeah, that’s mostly what food me and Dane have been living off of the past couple of works whilst we’ve been working on the house. I am craving some proper home cooked food.

Wearing – I have legit lived in my old skinny jeans, Fuerteventura hippy pants, old baggy tops, and my Evanescence hoodie for the past two weeks. I mean, what is the point in dressing up when all I’ve going to be doing is painting the house, and probably getting more on me than on the walls? Okay that last part was a joke. But anyway!

I actually forgot how much I loved my Evanescence hoodie until I got it out of the back of my wardrobe recently. I bought it at the first gig of theirs I went to back in 2011 and I remember only paying £5.00 for it because the guy selling them wanted to get rid of them before the end of the night. I ended up buying an XL, which I quickly regretted as at the time I was into wearing all my skinny fit clothing. However I’m not back to wearing baggy clothing and this suits me down to the ground. I’ll probably wear it loads for work now, alongside my new raincoat, which I will be talking about very soon!.

Wanting – The one thing I REALLY want right now is for my house to be done, so that me and Dane can move in. At this moment in time we’re probably halfway to finishing it. Currently the living room is done, and the kitchen will be in just a few days. Me and my dad plan to get the bedrooms done in the next couple of days as well. I guess it just sucks with me being back at work in just a few days too. We’re saying end of June, start of July we’ll be moved in!

I also want to win the lottery so I can pay off the mortgage, and go on a massive IKEA shop and not cry at the bill afterwards. Other than that I actually don’t want much, if anything just stuff to do with my house.

So that was my currently list for May/June, although mostly June to be honest due to the whole house palaver. Again I apologise for being quiet on my blog lately, the house has taken up a lot of my time, and sadly my house is more important. It’ll all be worth it though in the end!

I guess I just want to say thank you to my readers for sticking around with me, and even hello to some new ones! I’ll be back to my usual schedule very soon.

What is on your currently list? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and have a lovely weekend!

I’ve kinda been updating you on my life recently due to so much happening what with Christmas, New Year, and my birthday, but I wanted to do a currently post so I could update you all properly on how things have been recently, aside from busy with all the holidays mentioned above!

I’ve been excited to do another currently list for ages! So here is currently number four.

Watching: I have been watching all sorts recently. Mostly a mixture of Mrs. Brown’s Boys, and Making a Murderer, but come on, who isn’t watching that? I do really like Making a Murderer but at the same time it frustrates me so much to watch, that I have to take breaks from it just to think about what the hell is going on! My boyfriend got me to watch the first episode on my birthday, and I was pleasantly surprised to see what it was about. I hate jumping on the bandwagon to be honest, but I’m glad I did as it is a very interesting documentary. I need to finish it mind… Might do that today. I got Mrs. Brown’s Boys as a reward from my old job for doing so well in my customer service and such. That will be one perk of my old job that I’ll miss, the rewards you would get! I really like Mrs. Brown’s Boys, it’s hilarious and the Irish humour is spot on. The movie isn’t that great however… My dad also loves this so we’ll be watching it together soon I hope. There are a couple of clips I love from this show, and I couldn’t pick one so I’ve added two above for you to watch, and a crappy one because I can’t find said clip anywhere online!

Playing: As I am yet to write about, I bought a PlayStation 4 after Christmas and I am so happy that I did! With that I have been playing plenty of games on there. The one I’ve been playing the most (and actually 100% completed last night) is Life is Strange. I’ve played it before, but I bought it for my PS4 to get the trophies, as well as remind myself what happened in the story. I loved it, and I’m sure I’ll play it again at some point in the future. As well as that I’ve been playing Little Big Planet 3 with my boyfriend, which has been loads of fun! We played it loads on my birthday and it was nice, really nice. I can’t wait for him to get back from holiday so we can play it again soon. Until Dawn is another game I’ve played a little of, and I intend to play more after I’ve written this blog post as I really crave playing it right now! As well as tonight when I get home from pole dance fitness.

Listening: I’m pretty damn bored with my music at the moment. Like REALLY bored. I haven’t had something come up on the shuffle playlist that’s made me think, “Damn I haven’t listened to that artist for a while!” and put them on later, or the next day. I’ve been looking around YouTube for some new artists to check out, and Nightcore is one I have gladly discovered. They take songs and speed them up a little to make them sound sort of chipmunk like, sort of reminds me of Japanese music for some reason… Which is why I like it! I have been listening to a couple of the songs, and I intend to download some soon for my car. The second video I have linked I listened to for the first time today and it made me cry, as it made me think of how I feel about my boyfriend. So it’s officially my song for him. 🙂 Cheesy? Yes. Fucks given? Zero!

Eating: CRAP! Honestly I haven’t been eating that great at the moment. Not even in the sense of I’ve been eating rubbish like junk, but I’ve hardly been eating lately and it isn’t for bad reasons either. I just haven’t really had the energy to. I’ll eat little tid bits and that’s it. I cooked myself something though a few nights ago and it was lovely. I do want to start eating healthy again, like I was when I was dieting, but I don’t want to at the same time. I like having my treats. I have however been drinking lots of tea, and I don’t know why. I blame it being cold and not wanting to drink coffee all the time.

Wearing: I got some new PJs for Christmas (which you can see here) so I’ve been wearing them loads since receiving them! As well as that I have been notoriously wearing my 101 Dalmatians Vans (read about those here) as they are hella comfortable! I can’t wait to rock them more in the summer, as I think my shoes for winter will have to start being my Jake Dr Martens (can read about those here), as I’ve been neglecting them a little lately.

Wanting: SLEEP! Lots of bloody sleep at that! I am constantly tired at the moment, and I don’t know why. On my days off work I plan to have a lie in, and I never have one. On days where I start work late I usually end up having my lie in then. I like waking up early to get things done… But I do love my sleep. As well as that I am lusting after Black Milk Clothing leggings, the fox ones… Which I have mentioned time and time again. I am still after them… YES! I am going to see about ordering them with my birthday money when my boyfriend comes back from holiday, but I’m not sure yet. They are a lot of money. Sadly. As well as that I am lusting after the new MAC Cosmetics Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks, especially shade Oh Lady… WHICH IS SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE! Soon… Soon.

Other than all those things I’ve been pretty chilled at the moment. I’m trying to sort my blog over the next month so that it can be better this year than ever before! I have recently changed my profile picture on the right (as I’m sure you can see) and I intend to do some more changes soon.

What are your currents at the moment? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

Currently #3

It’s been a couple of weeks since I updated you on my life, and my currently posts… But that’s because I’ve been too damn busy to! With me working longer hours, and just life being busy in general it has prevented me from doing my next currently, until now at least!

I’ve been really poorly the past couple of days and as a result I’ve been lying in bed, miserable, and resting up… Whilst catching up on blog related matters! So I have finally have time to get on track with my blog, as well as get posts written up for whilst I’m on holiday.

So here is my third currently list!

Watching: I’ve recently discovered RuPaul’s Drag Race, and it’s safe to say I am obsessed. I started season 6 recently, and when I’ve watched this and season 7 I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself! I also don’t know where I’ll be watching season 7 yet as I’ve been watching them all (well apart from season 1 which I watched online) on Netflix. God bless Netflix! I never really thought it would be my sort of thing, but I just adore it, my boyfriend has even enjoyed watching it at times! My favourite winners have been Raja, Sharon Needles, and Jinkx Monsoon, the latter being my favourite. They were all just so different and alternative, the style that I love anyway! I can’t wait to see who will win season 6 now.

Playing: I haven’t really been playing much since I finished Life Is Strange but one game I have been loving lately is TsumTsum, the phone app. I’ve spoken about it in the past on previous currently posts. I love being able to play it on the go, whilst walking to and from work, and before I go to bed. It is a really relaxing game and one that I think people with anxiety like myself should play. On the topic of games, Nintendo recently announced that they will be releasing all the original Pokemon games (Red, Blue, and Yellow) on the Nintendo eShop for people to play! I cannot wait to relive my childhood, and I intend to buy them all to play!

Listening: I’ve been listening to Daft Punk’s latest album Random Access Memories. It’s by far one of my favourites of theirs and one that holds a big place in my heart. It came out the year my life changed dramatically in both good and bad ways, so it holds a very big place indeed. There are certain songs on the album that I love, one being in a YouTube video above. I just love Daft Punk so much, they’re by far one of my oldest and favourite bands. I’ve actually written a review of this album, and it’s pretty in-depth for anyone who may want to read it, I’ll link it here.

Eating: There isn’t any food that I’ve been eating much of lately to be honest… If anything my eating habits have gone rather odd. I find myself not having much appetite one day, and then I’ll want to eat everything another day. I recently tried a chicken, bacon, and three cheese toastie from Greggs. It was amazing and the thought of it at this moment in time is making my mouth water! A food I have found myself eating a lot is egg and chips… I don’t know why! It’s just so easy and simple to make to be fair. I had it for dinner earlier in the week when I was poorly and I loved it.

Wearing: The cold weather is slowly creeping back and with this it has meant I’ve needed to bring out my big parka back from out of the wardrobe. I love how fluffy it is and how huge the hood is on it. As well as this I have finally started to wear my new 101 Dalmatians Vans (post about those here) and they’re so cute and comfortable! I can’t wait to wear them on holiday next week. Speaking of coats too, I have dragged out my red cape out to wear for Christmas parties and popped on my cute new Pokemon pin badge (can see that here) so it shows my nerdy side!

Wanting: There isn’t much I really want at the moment due to Christmas being just around the corner now (well just over a month away!) so meh I don’t know. There just isn’t much I am lusting after I guess. If there is one thing I want it’s more money to buy people’s Christmas presents, and time! Otherwise one thing I would like right now is the Skinny Dip London iPhone 6 Case with the gorgeous Glitter Unicorn pattern on it (can find that here) but I keep saying to myself to wait for it… I hope this has been bought for me for Christmas… 😛

So that was my third currently list! Which of these things are you currently doing at the moment? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all.

Netflix Tag!

1.What are your favourite things to watch on Netflix?

I love watching anime on there to be honest! I’ve watched Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, and Fullmetal Alchemist. I’ve been watching quite a bit on there lately but something I’m watching at the moment of House. It’s a really good show and I can’t believe it’s taken me over ten years to finally watch it.

2. What are you currently watching on Netflix?

House! xD

3. If you could have any series, old or new put on Netflix, what would it be?

I’d like Catfish on there to be honest because I really love it and it’s hard to find online to watch to be honest. South Park would be great too.

4. What is your one peeve about Netflix?

That there’s more newer shows on there than old. I want some older stuff on there too and maybe some British drama too.

5. What are your essentials for a perfect night in with Netflix?

A long series (possibly anime), green tea, and cuddles with the boyfriend.

6. Recommend one series or film for someone else to watch?

I recommend the anime on there to be honest as it’s amazing. Check out Sword Art Online! Also Pokemon, re-live your childhood.

7. Name a series on Netflix you keep meaning to watch but haven’t yet?

Erm… Probably the rest of Dexter. I’ve watched up to season four now.

8. Did you discover anything awesome because of Netflix?

I discovered how great House is, how much I love Fullmetal Alchemist and also how much I love Sword Art Online.

Very random blog post today but I fancied giving it a go! Do you watch Netflix? If so, why not take part in this quick tag? It won’t hurt!

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