November Favourites ’17

It’s December and it’s definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas! This year I even have not one, but two advent calendars and I have work to thank for both of them!

November for me was a mixture of a shit month and an amazing month, the latter outweighing the two. As many of you may have read, I left my old job in retail/hospitality and joined my new job in admin! I’ve just wrapped up my third week and I am still loving it. I just can’t believe how quick those three weeks have gone and I am now well and truly into the Christmas spirit!

This past week though I have been so drained that blogging has sadly taken a back seat. Even my favourites post this month is late being written due to this, so I do apologise for my silence the past week. Blogging will be back on schedule after today, I promise.

For now it is time for me to do the first out of both my monthly posts, the first of course being my favourites!

  • Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel.

As soon as me and Dane got back from our holiday in October, I knew it was time to get the Snow Fairy out of stash of Lush goodies! I always buy in the Boxing Day sales or get gifted a massive bottle of this glorious pink goo every Christmas/Birthday and I always save it for when Christmas is upon us. It just reminds me of Christmas and the closer we get to Christmas, the more excited I get! This scent is just Lush to me. Although not Snow Fairy, The Godmother shared it’s scent with this and that was the first Lush product I ever bought, so that already has a close spot in my heart. I love this shower gel though, but I’m so gutted Lush discontinued the large 1kg bottle this year.

  • Lancome Miracle EDP.

I always forget that I own this perfume, until recently! This is an old perfume to be honest and one that is probably WAY out of date by now. I’ve owned it since Christmas 2012 when my brother bought it for me. It smells so strong and whilst this isn’t a bad thing, it’s definitely changed from what it once was. I decided a week ago that I would use up as many perfumes as possible and just re purchase ones that are my favourites, as well as any new ones I REALLY want. I have way too many perfumes and there’s only one of me. This is a gorgeous and strong EDP though and one that I can only highly recommend for women in their late 20’s and up as it’s a pretty mature scent.

  • L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

This hand cream is amazing and I always forget this. The day I started my new job I decided I would start using this again and my hands are so grateful for it. I don’t really use it throughout my shift, as I use another one but this has been helping my hands in the morning before I leave for work and if my hands are super dry. I still have my massive tube as well, which lasts FOREVER! Best hand cream for sure, always helps my eczema during the cold months.

  • MUA Lip Liner in shade Dark Thistle.

This is a lip liner that I bought to accompany and work with any raspberry pink lipsticks I own and to be honest whilst I LOVE wearing it with those, I especially love wearing it on it’s own with a bit of gloss or lip balm. This is pretty much how I’ve worn it the past couple of weeks and probably how I’ll continue to wear it! These lip liners only cost a £1 and not only do they last ages on their own, as well as with lipsticks but they’re also super comfortable to wear AND even come with their own sharpener. I definitely want to invest in picking up more of these.

  • Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry.

I picked this up for my holiday to Fuerteventura back in September and throughout the whole holiday I used this constantly, only to come home and not use it. I threw it into my handbag the first day of my new job and since then that is where it’s stayed. I use it all the time at work and due to my office being warm this melts a little which makes it so much easier to use than it usually is! You can apply loads of this and it really does keep my lips feeling moisturised and soft. I’ve heard that Carmex have brought out a sugar plum flavour, which I intend to pick up asap!

So now my beauty favourites are done, time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month!

Favourite TV Show – The Sinner.

This is a show that Dane told me about ages ago and had found online for us to watch. I never watched it and neither did he. When we found out it would be on Netflix we jumped at the chance to watch it. We binge watched it in a mere matter of days and the story is amazing! I didn’t know it was based off of a novel until I was searching for the trailer above, but it honestly doesn’t surprise me! It’s a thriller about a woman who murders a man on a beach and no one knows why. You find out more about her past as well as present as the story goes on and it really does keep you on the edge of your seat. If you fancy something to binge watch like this, please watch! I’ve also linked about the main song of the show as it’s amazing and as soon as I finished watching the show I went to find it so I could download it!

Favourite Film – The Boy & The Beast.

I have literally just finished watching this film. For ages now Dane has been trying to get me to watch this and for ages I said, “Nah I don’t want to, I won’t enjoy it.” Well it just goes to show how well Dane really knows me, it would seem more than myself as I loved watching this film. I thought it was going to be full of karate and kung fu style stuff, which is wasn’t. That’s why I thought I wouldn’t like it! It’s by the same people as The Wolf Children, which is one of my favourite anime films, so I shouldn’t have been surprised that I loved this film. This is currently on Amazon Prime Video to watch as subbed.

Favourite Book – Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Vol. 4.

I’VE STARTED READING AGAIN! I took some manga with me to work recently and actually read some, woohoo! It’s nice being able to get back into reading again as I’ve really missed it. It’s especially nice to have my lunch at my desk and read a manga. I have a feeling I’ve got some manga for Christmas this year so I need to make sure I read loads now before then to make sure I have time to read that too. 😛

Favourite Song/Album – Radio Bam.

If there’s one radio show (aside from any Tim Shaw has hosted!) I wish could come back, it’s Radio Bam, even if it came back as a podcast! I always forget how funny and random this show is and not only is the music amazing that Bam Margera plays throughout the shows, but the stories him and his guests (mostly the cKy guys) tell are so damn funny! Well, to me anyway. I’ve downloaded 100 episodes (there are 302 in total) and I’m currently listening to episode 17. The thing that made me think about downloading and listening to these again is the rush hour traffic I get stuck in on my way to work. I love listening to music on the way to work, but if I could listen to an episode of this instead, it would definitely make for an interesting change. I’ve popped up a funny moment above, I will say the show IS OFFENSIVE so this sort of thing won’t be for everyone, it is however for me, so sorry. 😉 The clip above is definitely one of my favourites.

Favourite Game – Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Sims 4.

Oh man this month has been about ALL THE GAMES for me! Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp came out and if you don’t know it by now, I’m a HUGE Animal Crossing fan! I’ve played all the games so when Nintendo announced a phone game, I knew I’d fall in love. When it came out in Australia and I saw my friends in the UK playing it, I was insanely jealous. So when it finally came out recently I downloaded straight away and since then I’ve been addicted.

As well as that I’ve also been addicted to playing Sims 4. Me and Dane played the demo of it on the Xbox One and although we enjoyed playing it, we didn’t like the way it played on the console. During Black Friday we picked it up online for less than £20 and we don’t regret it one bit. We’ve played it loads since and will probably spend most of tomorrow playing it together in bed, as well as on Sunday!

Finally I finished The Fractured But Whole and oh my God what a fucking ending! Although I’m not 100% sure/keen about the game play in the second game, I definitely love the story so much more! You can really see why it was getting delayed for so long, the guys did an amazing job with it and now I can’t wait to play it all over again to try and get all the trophies, like a sad git I am! 😛

So those are my favourites from November! I can’t believe in 30 days we’ll be looking to start a New Year. This year has gone by way too fast, can time just stop for a little? 😛

What were your favourites from November? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

November Wish List ’17

Only this wish list now and the next two will be Christmas and birthday ones, how crazy is that?! I’m actually a mixture of excited and bleh about Christmas at the moment and sadly this is due to money issues. That being said due to that this months wish list is going to be full of stuff I won’t be buying… BOO YOU WHORE!

Due to this, this months list isn’t a big one either and I actually really struggled with putting it together. I honestly wish I had money… 😦

  • Yuri!!! On Ice Logo Cardigan – £41.99, currently £24.99 (link)

I eyed up this cardigan on Crunchyroll ages ago but I didn’t quite like the price of it, but recently I saw it for sale on EMP and not only would it work out cheaper due to no import charges, but also it’s on sale at the moment which is always a good thing! I nearly bought this a couple of weeks ago but left it due to lack of monies. I love Yuri!!! On Ice, it’s such a heartwarming and lovely anime so it’d be lovely to own a piece of merchandise from the anime. I especially love the little pork cutlet bowl on the bottom of it. They would be great for layering up during the winter months!

  • Kat Von D Sinner’ Lipstick & Fragrance Travel Duo – £24.00, currently £21.60 (link)

I’ve been after the Sinner liquid lipstick shade by Kat Von D as it’s a gorgeous dark purple shade but I don’t know if it’ll come out as it’s own shade, or if it’ll always be a little limited edition style shade that comes in this travel duo. I’m not massively after this set, just the liquid lipstick so I wouldn’t want to pay nearly £25.00 for it.

  • Ohayou Clothing! Sweet ‘Vee T-Shirt – £17.99 (link)

I love Ohayou Clothing! they’re definitely my favourite independent store right now and one I recently picked up a new varsity jacket from! It has a cute Umbreon on, which just makes me really happy. So when Chrissy came out with this kawaii Eevee design I just fell in love with it! She’s so adorable playing with her 3DS and eating Pocky! I’d love this design on a sweater instead, but I feel like this tee would have a lovely relaxed feel to it and would work perfect with leggings or tucked into a skirt.

  • Bershka Oversized Kurt Cobain Sweatshirt – £29.99 (link)

I saw this sweatshirt when I was in Fuerteventura and immediately fell in love with it! I didn’t buy it due to how heavy it was and also the fact that I could pick it up in the UK for the exact same price. It’d be great to wear with thick tights in the colder months and Dr Martens boots or even brothel creepers. I’d love to pick this up before my birthday to wear for then, but I may try and wait to pick it up in any sales… £30.00 is a decent price, but of course if I can get it cheaper, I’ll damn well try! 😛

  • Elodie The Unicorn Ramen Bowl – £24.99 (link)

When I saw that Firebox was stocking this ramen bowl I was seriously overjoyed! This bowl is by Smoko a company whose designs are so adorable and I would honestly buy them all if I could afford it! 😛 I remember eyeing up this bowl on their recent Kickstarter campaign, but due to how expensive it was going to cost me to buy AND ship the item(s) I wanted to back I left it. Now that Firebox is stocking it I know for a fact now that I can pick it up without worrying about paying loads of shipping as well as import! I love ramen and although I prefer to cook it “properly” it would be nice to have a cute little unicorn to eat it out of. 😛

  • Loungefly x Pokemon Eevee Mini Backpack – $78.00 AUS (link)

The final item on this list is the one I REALLY want but it is literally impossible to get right now… Not even due to money but because it would appear it’s an Australia exclusive… WHICH SUCKS! It’s hard enough being able to get hold of the Loungefly x Pokemon merchandise as it is, without making it even HARDER! So the only way I would get hold of this bag is by someone in Australia buying and shipping it over for  me… Which sadly won’t ever happen! It’s just an adorable little backpack in a mint green shade, which is covered in little Eevee’s! I love the Eeveelutions so you can’t really go wrong with this backpack if you’re a Pokemon fan!

So those are my wish list items for this month! I know it’s nothing exciting, but to be honest most of the stuff I want I’ve either spoken about or I’ve popped on my Christmas wish list for Dane… He’s my personal Father Christmas! 😀

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

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

November ’16 Favourites

Woohoo it’s now December and we are so close to Christmas. Honestly it’s going to be here before we know it. Then it’ll be New Year and then my birthday. JEEZ I’M GETTING OLD!!! But either way I am back on my blog after being absent for well over a week! I’ve either been too busy with life or too tired from it to do any writing for my blog. It would seem that when you move out life gets nothing but busy!

Well anytime is better than no time, so here is one of my last favourites posts of the year!

  • Australian Bodycare Skin Wash

I’ve loved using this shower gel for as long as I can remember and it’s one I go back to time and time again. It’s one that I often use if my skin has broken out badly, or if I’m feeling under the weather and need a pick up. Lately though I have had a horrible allergic reaction on my thighs and tea tree seems to be the only thing helping it (as well as Sudocrem). I always forget about how much I love this and I really want to try and pick up more of Australian Bodycare’s products next year.

  • Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in shade Bauhau5

I bought this last month and it has fast turned into one of my favourite liquid lipsticks! It’s just so damn comfortable to wear and it looks beautiful. I’ve wanted it for years so it was definitely worth the wait to pick up whilst I was in London. I’ll be writing a full review of it soon but it’s definitely the liquid lipstick I’ll be wearing throughout Christmas.

  • Blistex Triple Butters Lip Balm

Due to the cold my lips have really taken a beating and even at the moment they’re really sore and split various times. This is either from just neglecting to pop any lip balm on my lips for one part of the day, or due to wearing liquid lipsticks. SO I’ve been in the need of a rich and caring lip balm. I used to use Blistex a lot when I was younger and it did a great job, so I decided to pick some up recently. Boots had a 2 for £3.00 offer on all their Blistex range so I picked up an intense balm and this Triples Bitters lip balm. This smells amazing and it reminds me of white chocolate and strawberries. I LOVE it so much! I use it around the house when my lips feel dry but I may start using it for work too.

  • Garnier Skin Moisture Match Wake Me Up

Not only have my lips been super dry but so has the skin on my face. I find when I put my translucent powder on top of late that it would be showing up all the dry patches on my cheeks which was just off putting of course. So I dug through my beauty drawer and brought out this moisturiser. I’m so glad I did as it really did help to banish those dry patches on my cheeks which I was so pleased about. Recently I have gone back to my Clinique moisturiser which is my God send so now this will go back into my beauty drawer.

  • Bath & Body Works Cherry Blossom Body Spray

This is one of the many Bath & Body Works products that my friend Sophi brought back for me from her trip to America! She was very thoughtful and picked me up a couple of Cherry Blossom scented miniatures, including this body spray. Since she gave it to me I’ve used it most of the month before going to work. It smells lovely and will definitely be one I’ll use on warm summer days.

So those were my favourite products throughout November! What products did you love using last month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

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

November ’16 Wish List

Wish lists are getting harder to write now… You know why? Well Christmas is just around the corner and usually in November you stop buying things so that people get the chance to buy you something you want. Well that’s what I know me and a few of my friends do anyway…

Due to that this months wish list was really hard to write. I kept writing ideas down only to then think it would be better suited on my Christmas wish list next month. I eventually came up with some items but due to lack of funds, presents to buy for others and needing to give people ideas for myself this months list won’t be all that great. Sorrrrrrrry (not sorry :P).

  • Bee & Puppycat Vol. 3 – £12.25 (link)

This comes out at the end of the month and I am so damn excited! As Dane has Prime I always ask him to pre-order things for me so I make sure to get them in good time. As this is included on Prime I asked him to pre-order it for me recently. I love the Bee & Puppycat show so I love the comic books just as much! I just wish they would come out a little sooner and quicker though. I really love Bee and hope to cosplay as her at an event one day.

  • Lush Bubbly Shower Gel – £4.95-£16.50 (link)

I recently bought a little bottle of this when I went to the Lush Coventry beauty blogger event (you can read about that here) and since then I have fallen in love. I want to pick up a large bottle when I’m down in the Oxford Street store in a couple of weeks. It has a lovely fresh scent to it that reminds me of Fanta orange. I love to use it some mornings to perk me up. I’ll be reviewing it very soon!

  • Pusheen Self Stirring So Lazy Can’t Stir Mug – £12.99 (link)

I love Pusheen and there’s so much Pusheen stuff I want to get but it’s just about finding stuff I want to buy which I’ll ACTUALLY use! I wouldn’t mind this for Christmas really, as whilst I have a lot of cups and mugs in my cupboard I don’t have a Pusheen one and I definitely don’t have a self stirring one. This also comes with a lid so it’d be great for on the move like before work, on the way home from work, to the shops, etc etc. Also it’d be really nice to make hot chocolates in due to the self stir action.

  • Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in shade Bauhau5 – £16.00 (link)

I was meant to mention this on my wish list last month but I forgot! How dare I! I would have added this to my Christmas wish list next month as I would love at least some money to go and buy one of these myself. However as I am going down to London in a few weeks I may as well pick one up whilst I visit the first Kat Von D counter! That’s if there is any left… I really hope there are to be honest. I have my eye on Bauhau5, a raspberry pink shade. I’ve had my eye on it since I ever heard about the shade, so I know I want to pick it up eventually.

  • Pokemon TCG Dragonite EX Box – £18.99 (link)

I’m a Pokemon nerd through and through and I remember back in the day being obsessed with the trading card game. Me and my friends in my street would play the game all the time and spend our pocket money on new packets of the cards and open them together. That’s some of the nicest memories I hold and remember from a couple of summers during half term. I’ve recently decided that I want to start playing the games again and intend to start collecting the cards again next year. I saw this on a website being advertised and as Dragonite is one of my favourites, I fell in love! I hope to get this for Christmas, or as a treat beforehand.

  • The Pretty Reckless Concert Tickets (no picture added and prices vary depending where the show is held!)

I kind of have to include this on here because it is under my wish list and the tickets come out tomorrow! I’ll be ordering them when I finish work as I really want to go and see The Pretty Reckless live again. I’ve loved them since I saw them support Evanescence all the way back in 2011. I’ll be going with Dane and as of yet we haven’t been to a gig together yet so I’ll be excited to go. AHHH! 😀

  • Pokemon Moon on 3DS – £32.00 (link)

This is the final item I’ll be talking about on the list because it is the one I am most excited for! It is of course Pokemon Moon which I have been super excited for since it was announced. I recently got to play the demo for it which I really enjoyed and after seeing the three new starters final evolutions I am even more excited for it. I guess I’m just glad I only have a couple of weeks to wait for it. I’ll be pre-ordering it closer to its release date. I can’t wait for this! 😀

So that was my wish list for November. I know it was nothing special but I’ve saving all of that for next month and my Christmas wish list! I need to start putting a list together to give people ideas of what they could get for me. Might go and do that now… 😛

On that note, what do you have on your wish list for this month? Apart from plenty of money due to Christmas! 😛 Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

November Favourites

I am currently on holiday, but that isn’t stopping me from getting my favourites post written and scheduled on time like I always do! I’m actually writing this up the early hours before I fly… I’ll still get a lie in of course, but I won’t allow for my blog to miss out on posts… So my sleeping is missing out instead.

That probably makes zero sense, but it makes perfect sense in my half asleep, exhausted state. I graduated earlier today which was amazing, but more on that when I get back from my holiday as I want to talk more in depth about how it went, as well as show off what I wore.

So onto my favourites for November. Still cannot believe it’s December now! Not long until 2016.

  • Victoria’s Secret Body Mist in Snow Mint.

This is actually from last Christmas, but this is just how long it has lasted me since I bought it a year ago. This is a limited edition scent that only comes out for Christmas in Victoria’s Secret. I love the smell of this, it reminds me of sweet candy canes! I’m a massive fan of mint scents so when I first gave this a sniff it was right up my street. This has come back out again this year too, so if you like the sound of it you can pick it up! The packaging is different now however, so make sure to keep eyes peeled for it. What I love the most about this body mist however is how long it lasts for! I find most you’ll spritz yourself with them, and the scent disappears after a couple of hours. I’ve sprayed this on me before going to work, and when I’m getting changed at home after a long shift I’ll still smell of it! Due to this I especially love to use this after a late bath before bed, so I can smell of it all night.

  • Lily Flame candle in scent Fairy Dust.

Oh my I have been after this candle for years! First in the tin, then as the reed diffuser, and now I finally have it in the glass jar version! I picked this up on a whim when I was in Waitrose one afternoon after work. I always go and have a nose at the candles in there as they always smell amazing! They had this beauty and I just couldn’t leave without it. I can’t even describe the scent to be honest. It’s floral, but a little musky and sweet too. I hate floral scents to be perfectly honest with you, but I think this is the sort of candle where if you hate floral, this is a must have because it has all those notes, but just something else in there too! This wasn’t cheap to be honest at £12.00 but when I want something comforting after a long day at work, this has been what I go to. I definitely want to get the reed diffuser soon.

  • Lush Reindeer Rock Soap.

I love Lush, as regular readers will be aware of, and I especially love this soap. So far this year this is the only Christmas item I have picked up. Not even joking. Why (after I was so hyped about everything)? Because I am on a Lush ban! My boyfriend actually bought this soap for me after he treated himself to some goodies from there, and kindly offered me to have one thing. I picked this. I kinda wish I had picked up Yog Nog soap instead, but I am happy with my choice nonetheless. I picked up a bar of this last Christmas and the formula and colour of it has definitely changed somewhat. The one last year was burgundy, this year it’s a rich, dark purple. I don’t know which I prefer to be honest! Either way I’ve been using this soap none stop and I’m actually sad I can’t buy this whilst on holiday otherwise I would pick one up there to use as well.

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in shade HoeHoeHoe.

I LOVE this lipstick, and to be honest I can’t wait to review it when I get back from holiday! It’s a beautiful deep red shade with pink and purple shimmer running throughout. I haven’t been able to wear it as much as I’ve wanted to due to a very painful cold sore, but before and after that I wore this all the time. I have noticed it isn’t as good as Jeffree’s permanent line (this one is out for Christmas as limited edition) but I’ll save all those details for a review!

  • L’Occitane Shea Zesty Lime Hand Cream.

I first picked up this hand cream about a year ago as a sample in a magazine. So I had one full size tube… Then I picked up a free one thanks to a voucher in the same magazine, making me the owner of two full size tubes, and then after all that my mom went in store to buy something and got given a set for free, with a matching lip gloss/balm! So now I own three of these bad boys. It was so long ago that I got these that I completely forgot that I owned them, and to be honest they have done my hands wonders these past couple of weeks. The weather has dropped in temperature and my eczema prone hands have really taken it hard. The Lush hand cream Love & Light (review here) really hasn’t done anything for my hands which I’m rather sad about. Thanks to L’Occitane my hands will keep soft and supple throughout the winter. I really want more of these in the future, especially the vanilla scented one!

So those were my favourites for November! What were you all enjoying using last month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and see you when I get back from holiday!

November Wish List

It’s now November, and less than a month until my holiday. Woohoo to that! It’s also coming closer to Christmas, which I am once again extremely excited for this year! I’ve already started my Christmas shopping for before I go away on holiday.

I don’t really want much this month, due to Christmas coming up, plus it’s official that November is the month to not buy anything so that you don’t buy something someone has already bought you for Christmas. But writing a wish list doesn’t hurt… Does it? To be honest I’m already on planning on a few of these items with my holiday coming up, as well as just wanting to get my hands on them!

  • Black Milk Clothing Fox Leggings.

I love Black Milk leggings and I own a pair of their mermaid leggings, which I adore! I also own a dress, which I’ll be wearing for my graduation at the end of the month. Whilst I love Black Milk though, I also love foxes, a hell of a lot more to be honest. I remember seeing Black Milk post a picture on their Instagram of someone wearing these leggings and I got super excited about them, only to discover they were a museum piece, and hadn’t been around for years. You can only imagine how disappointed I was. Then only a month or two later they re-released the fox leggings and I was super excited about it! These are actually on my Christmas list, but I don’t know if anyone will actually buy them for me… It’s not cheap importing from Australia to be honest, so I usually pick up my Black Milk pieces from eBay. These are just gorgeous though, and I’d wear them to death with baggy jumpers, sweatshirts, and anything else really. I’m keeping everything crossed that I can get them before they sell out and become a museum item once again…

  • Jackass T-Shirt.

I am a huge Jackass fan and have been since it came out, which is a really long time! However, throughout all those years I haven’t as of yet owned a t-shirt with the classic skull and crutches logo that everyone knows Jackass for. Why? I don’t even know! Primark recently brought out this t-shirt, and when I went into the Coventry store to look for it, I had zero luck. Someone has bought a bunch though and put them for sale over on eBay for a pretty decent price. So I am contemplating picking one up that I can wear on my holiday. I’m not one for wearing all summery style pieces on holidays, I love wearing quirky things that show off who I am, and what I love. So this will be ideal dressed up with some shorts for daytime, or jeans for a relaxed evening look.

  • Vans Disney 101 Dalmatians T-Shirt.

I’m in LOVE with the Disney 101 Dalmatians collection that has recently come out with Vans, so much so I already have a pair of the shoes from the collection. Go me, huh? I plan on owning most of the collection before it eventually leaves us, and as you can see on this list I have two items, this and a backpack. I am hoping I can pick up this t-shirt before I go on holiday so I can wear it in the daytime when it’s a little chilly or I pop out shopping with my dad for the day. Hell, even for drinks! Like the Jackass t-shirt I would team this with shorts or jeans. As I plan to wear the Vans shoes that I bought too, I would of course worry it might look a little too over the top… So I may have to switch to flip-flops that day! It’s not cheap though at £40.00… But student discount will help my wallet a little…

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Hoe Hoe Hoe.

After buying Masochist about a month ago, I am officially in love with Jeffree’s liquid lipsticks! So when I saw that he was releasing some new shades for Christmas, I began to get excited. He’s bringing out five in total and out of them all Hoe Hoe Hoe is the most beautiful… In my eyes anyway. It’s a gorgeous red shade that packs a punch, especially as it’s full of pink shimmer. Something that hasn’t yet been done in the liquid lipstick world! I cannot wait to pick one up, and I will do as soon as Cocktail Cosmetics put them up on their website. I might take this on holiday to rock on nights out, but otherwise it will be a definite must for December, Christmas, and New Year.

  • Nintendo 3DS New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward.

This game was only announced recently and already it’s due out towards the end of the month. I’ve owned the Style Boutique games on both the old Nintendo DS, as well as the first game in the new 3DS series, so I kind of need the second one as well. This comes out just before my holiday so I intend to pick this up for my holiday so I have plenty to do whilst I’m sunbathing, and chilling out in the mornings and evenings. It has a different style of gameplay from the original ones, which I really like the sound of! I think I may have to pre-order this very soon.

  • Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne.

I recently read a review of this by a blogger, and it’s safe to say that after said review, I now need to read this book. It’s about a girl who is dealing with OCD, and how she deals with it when she starts at a new college. Of course it is a young adult novel, which is always the genre I sway towards and pick up. I write this style of work myself, so I love to read it too. I think I’ll be picking this up for my holiday, as I already have one book to take with me to read, so I want to make sure I have another to read. If not, I’ll at least be picking it up in the future, as it sounds like an amazing book!

  • Vans Disney 101 Dalmatians Backpack.

There were originally two backpacks announced in the collection, this one and a red one with little pictures of dalmatian puppies all over it. I wanted the latter, but it hasn’t yet been released on the Vans website, or anywhere else for that matter… Which I am pretty gutted about! However, they have released the other backpack, which is pretty cool! I could do with a new one in the New Year, as my current one is looking like it has seen better days. This isn’t exactly cheap though, which is a shame as it is just a bag… Plus whilst I do somewhat like it, I also still prefer the other one and knowing my luck, I will buy this one and then the red one will come out shortly after… So we shall see!

So that is my second to last wish list of the year! It’s crazy to think there is only one more and then it’ll be 2016! This year has gone by so damn quickly. Phew!

What items are on your wish lists? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

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

Disney x Vans 2015 – 101 Dalmatians Collection!

If there is a collection I am super excited for, it’s the Disney 101 Dalmatians collection that Vans will be bringing out this fall! I squealed when I saw this collection being announced last week and I have my eye on pretty much everything from it.

As well as 101 Dalmatians, Vans will also be releasing The Jungle Book AND Alice in Wonderland collections too. Do I hear excited squeals? I think I do!

Vans have previously worked with Disney to bring out a collection in the spring and summer which included Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Disney Princesses, as well as Disney Villains. Good eh?

Vans have been bringing out some amazing collaborations the past couple of years, the last one being Star Wars, and the one before being Marvel. As well as that they have also teamed up with Iron Maiden and The Beatles to bring out some cool collections.

I remember however when the first Disney collection was coming out, and I hoped so damn much that 101 Dalmatians would be included, so when it was revealed and there was nothing of the sort involved, I was gutted. So you can imagine my joy when this was announced, and it has been nothing but be what I imagined!

I am excited to share with you all the collection that has been revealed so far, and how damn excited I am for it. I was like this when Adventure Time teamed up with Dr Martens, and I’m just as happy with Vans and Disney bringing out this collection… If not more excited!

This is the teaser image that Vans leaked just before the actual press release about the collection itself. I didn’t see this until after the press release, but isn’t it just so cute??? Little dalmatian chewing on a Vans slip on? Be still my beating heart…

As you can see the collection is pretty red, white, and black which was pretty obvious to be honest. There will be two variations of shoes out and whilst both look awesome, I’m opting for the red pair which will look cool all year around! I am hoping to get these before I go on holiday to wear throughout that. The high top pair look cool too and if this happen to go cheap enough in future sales, I may have to pick them up…

Alongside the classic Van’s trainers, of course there are some apparel and accessories with this collection which I am so happy Vans are bringing out, which as you can see are just as adorable as the shoes.

There are two backpacks coming out, one which is black with a repeated pattern of the dalmatians on it, as well as a red one with cute little pictures of dalmatians on, I’m loving the latter myself as it isn’t so in your face as the black one. But both are just as cute! There is also a hat sharing the same pattern as the black bag, this isn’t really my thing but I’m sure loads of people will be rocking it! I’ve also heard rumours around that there will be a keyring coming out, but I haven’t seen this on any of the promotional images yet.

With the apparel there is a raglan tee, as well as a sweatshirt that I both want! You can never say no to cute t-shirts and such like this, and me being a huge 101 Dalmatians fan, I would totally rock these throughout the year. As well as those there will also be some cute socks being released, and by the look of it some boyfriend boxers, very cute!

I think out of the three collections coming out that this one is the best one. It’s just so adorable and cute, and fans of all years will fall in love with it.

Sadly I don’t know a date that the new Vans Disney collection will come out in the UK, but if it’s anything like America I can imagine at the end of October, if not in November at some point. Perfect timing though with Christmas just around the corner!

I apologise for not talking about The Jungle Book and Alice in Wonderland collections, but I don’t really have much interest for those. There are plenty of blogs and websites around talking about those if you just Google though!

So, do you have your eyes on the next Disney X Vans collection? If so, which one? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

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