October Wish List ’18

As I said a few days ago, how on Earth is it October already?! This year has flown by in a busy haze and I just want time to stop for a little bit. I’m writing this post over the weekend and I honestly can’t believe it’s currently 7.30pm! Where is my precious weekend going?!

What better way than to spend my evening doing blog work and listening to Radio Bam. I don’t mean for that to sound as sarcastic as it probably does. I love writing on my blog, I find it quite relaxing and it takes my mind off of anything that’s on it.

I haven’t really thought much about what items I’ll be talking about on my wish list today, but I worry it won’t be much, or at least anything exciting! Fingers crossed eh?

Well Christmas is around the corner, so I’ll definitely be needing to save monies anyway. 😛 I hope you enjoy this months wish list anyhoo!

  • Never Take It Off Can I Keep You? Necklace – (link)

I rather like NTIO and have done for years. I’ve even mentioned them on my blog before (which you can read here) and still wear the bracelet I picked up in March. I was having a nose at the Halloween collection and stumbled across this cute ghost necklace! I’d love to get it but the one thing that puts me off is it isn’t real silver, it’s plated. I sound so snobby, but I hate wearing plated jewellery, it turns your skin green! This is definitely something I’ll have to think about getting.

  • Insert Coin Clothing Persona 5 Shujin Academy Varsity Jacket – (link)

I have been pining over this jacket since it came out a couple of months back. I thought I’d mentioned it on my blog before, but alas I haven’t! The reason I haven’t bought it yet is due to the price. It isn’t the cheapest jacket in the world sadly at £65 and I’ve ummed and ahhed the decision on buying it due to that. As readers will know I went to EGX a couple of weekends back, (which was amazing by the way) which Insert Coin Clothing was also at. Sadly the size I wanted for this jacket was sold out so I couldn’t pick it up. The staff were so lovely and gave me some vouchers so I could pick up the jacket for a cheaper price, which is lovely! I can’t wait to get it for autumn and winter now.

  • Cath Kidston Otters A5 Softback Notepad – (link)

If there is a high street brand I have fallen in love with the past year it’s Cath Kidston. Their items are so adorable and vintage, you can’t go wrong at all. I especially love stuff that’s got cute animals on. I loved their fox collection so much when it was out! When I recently visited one of their stores I discovered they have quite a few cute animal collections out, including their Otters collection! This notebook is adorable and I’d love to have it as my journal for 2019! I have so many notebooks though, that I honestly don’t need anymore!

  • Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 and 2.5 Remix – (link)

Years ago I picked up this game on the PS3 but considering I don’t use my PS3 as much as my PS4 anymore I’ve not really played it, sad times. The first thing me and my best friend Gabriella did at EGX was go and play Kingdom Hearts 3, which I loved SO DAMN MUCH! I really need to pick this game up soon so I can play it before the new one comes out. I forgot how much I actually enjoyed this series. I don’t know if I’ll buy this just yet as I have so many games coming out for the rest of the year. I might just ask for it for Christmas and play it with Dane. Who knows… We’ll see!

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life Vol. 3 – (link)

After this post I’ll get this preordered as I want this when it comes out. I love reading manga so much and one of my favourites to read is the Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid ones. They’re recently announced that they’ll be releasing a manga series about Elma, one of the dragons and equally one of my favourite dragons! I can’t wait to see what happens to Kanna next, she’s adorable.

  • Joules Lunch Box – (link)

This isn’t anything special and whilst I doubt I need a lunch box for work, I REALLY love the look of this! If anything it would probably encourage me to make sandwiches for work instead of buying them once a week. It’d also be great to take leftover dinner in. 😛 It’s just adorable and it’s a decent price for Joules too, don’t you think?

So that’s my wish list for this month! What do you guys think to some of the items I’ve added to it? What items do you have on your wish lists this month?

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

Never Take It Off Bracelets

I do apologise for my blog being quiet for a few days, but this is due to personal reasons. I just wanted to use my weekend to spend time with Dane. and chill out together. This sadly didn’t involve doing any work on my blog.

Today however, I can!

Recently I decided to order myself another Never Take It off bracelet. I say another, let me explain. One of the first posts I ever wrote on here was about a Never Take It Off bracelet that I owned back when I was 22. I wore it for ages until I got a retail job and was forced to cut it off. I was heartbroken and gutted and I never bought another one because I knew I’d never be able to wear it. It was a gorgeous turquoise peace sign and I know it’s somewhere at my parents house. I think when I’m there next I’m going to try and find it so I can order new string and wear it again!

That is until recently when I decided I could and would finally be able to wear a NITO bracelet again and when I knew which one I wanted, I ordered and waited nearly 2 weeks for it to arrive. I was so excited for it!

It took me ages to decide which bracelet I wanted but in the end I decided on the No Fear bracelet, which I had seen years before and lusted after.

I’ll talk about the brand first and then go into the goodies I ordered and received.

I discovered Never Take It Off back when it first came to be around 2011/2012. It was through the artist Juliet Simms, who sung in a band that I love called Automatic Loveletter. It’s an American brand who make these gorgeous bracelets where when you put them on you make yourself a vow. You have to stick to it and never take the bracelet off.

“The Never Take It Off Vow Bracelets were created to bring strength to the process of change and choice. Each piece comes with a list of vows to encourage the individual tying it on to never give up, never back down and never stop trying. Never take it off…”

The NTIO brand is a stand alone and not affiliated with any exclusive band, person, artist or cause but provides a way to easily support or promote all Artists, Bands, Causes, and Designers and Events by providing a simple artistic and meaningful way to promote those brands. The NTIO Vow Bracelets were created to support Artists, Bands, Causes, Designers and Events with a message of hope, humor, help and happiness ❤ for every wearer and the artists who created them.

In the parcel itself you’ll get a card by the person whose design you have brought, mine was by Juliet so of course I got her card.

Alongside that you get a guide on how to tie your bracelet, as well as any other information about NTIO.

There are various different styles to choose from, as well as by loads of different people and if you got and check out the website, you’ll see why I struggled to decide on a bracelet for quite a while.

I settled on No Fear, a style I had been after a while. It was “retiring” which means it’s being discontinued and sold off cheap in sale. Not only that, but due to it being by Juliet and it being her birthday around the time of ordering, I got a discount code! ALSO due to this being a Valentine’s Day item, I also got a special choker/bracelet which is by Juliet and her husband Andy and it’s called Love Me.

Sadly both of these are now sold out, but there’s plenty of other bracelets to choose from!

So when Dane was home I asked him to help me tie my bracelet on and although I didn’t really make a vow, I said that I would continue to keep doing what makes me happy and try and save up as much as I can to do more things, including travelling to Japan!

I can’t see me wearing the pink choker/bracelet as much as I don’t know if it’s waterproof. It’s the kind of thing I’d possibly wear when going out for a meal or something like that.

The bracelets aren’t hard to tie on, but if you want to make sure they’re secure you’ll want someone to help you out!

I love them both so much though! They’re gorgeous and I cannot wait to continue wearing my No Fear bracelet more and possibly have people ask after it too.

The bracelets are wear and wash proof, which is really good considering you wear it constantly.

I know this isn’t a super long and detailed post, but I love my Never Take It Off bracelet so much and I was so excited to share it with you!
