From Japan Pokemon Eeveelutions Haul

Almost a couple of months ago now, I decided to write about From Japan on my blog with a review of the proxy service, as well as showing you guys my haul from my second order. You can read all about that here.

I’m here again with yet another haul! This time it’s from my first order I made with From Japan in April, as well as my third order I made in June.

I know you guys loved when I spoke about From Japan before, so I knew when my first and third orders arrived I wanted to share what goodies I bought with you all!

I really hope you enjoy this post today, it’s such a hot weekend so grab a cold drink (or even better an ice cream!) and get in front of the fan as you read this post. ๐Ÿ™‚

I mentioned on my From Japan review previously that I’d made my first order with them back in April and I was still waiting for my goodies to arrive! I’d decided to ship via surface mail, which is notorious for taking MONTHS. Alas, my order took almost 3 months to arrive, but better late than never and it was definitely worth it!

First things first, if you’re happy to wait ages for your goods to arrive, surface mail with tracking is fab… But I definitely prefer airmail! Your goods come within a week and they always usually have tracking too.

Anyhoo, the first item I want to talk about on my haul post is the Pokemon TCG playmat from the Eevee Sweet Choices collection. Itโ€™s so cute and itโ€™s actually from me ordering this that I decided to get my own desk in our front room/office.

The packaging it came in was great and it even arrived in its original packaging! The playmat is in perfect condition and has now found it’s place on my desk, which I adore so much! It only arrived on Thursday but in the short time I’ve owned it, it looks great on my desk and I’m so glad I finally made the jump at not only ordering it, but using From Japan to get it.

As far as I’m aware this playmat was a Pokemon Center USA exclusive, so I can only imagine the person who owned it in Japan before me must have imported it. It’s been a longgggg way! ๐Ÿ˜›

Shortly after my second order arrived, I started to order items for my third order. I’ve been after the Eeveelutions Pokemon Dolls from 2017 for quite some time now. I bought Flareon back when they released, then Espeon and Umbreon a year or so later and finally Vapreon shortly after that through a Facebook group.

I was still missing most of the Eeveelutions and had been keeping my eyes peeled on Facebook groups, eBay and stores similar. When I was in Japan in January 2020 I looked in stores too, the only Eeveelution Pokemon Doll we came across was the Vaporeon one, which I already owned.

I’d already starting searching for the remaining Eeveelutions I was after on From Japan, with some showing loads of results, others showing very few and one not at all! It was definitely a challenge and I wanted to share with you some of the struggles I faced this time. FYI none of these struggles are any fault of From Japan!

To try and find the Pokemon Dolls I was after, I searched for just that both in English and Japanese. As I mentioned on the previous post about From Japan, you can use Google Translate to help you with getting the rough translation. This result showed not only plushies, but figures too. This took some time when trying to just locate certain Eeveelutions, but it made for something chilled to do whilst watching something on TV.

Whenever I found the Eeveelutions I was after, I would add to my watch list/favourites and order when the time was right! Sadly, some orders were cancelled and fell through. This could either be due to someone ordering the item(s) before me, or just because of proxy seller issues.

The Eeveelutions I needed to complete my collection were, Eevee, Jolteon, Glaceon, Leafeon and Sylveon.

Eevee was the easiest and cheapest out of the five to get hold of! Before shipping I only paid 800 yen for this, which in pounds is ยฃ5.36. Complete bargain!

Jolteon was the hardest to get hold of. I’d actually found someone selling the American version (tag was different) for ยฃ45! I was close to buying it, just because I was beginning to see no light at the end of the tunnel, but glad I didn’t. I was refusing to ship all of the Pokemon Dolls I’d bought to me until I’d found this one. You get 45 days to ship your goods to you, something I was starting to get closer and closer to. Alas one day I was randomly having a search around From Japan for this Pokemon Doll and low and behold… I found it! I didn’t hesitate to order and worried a few days after that it may get cancelled for reasons. Thankfully this didn’t happen and as soon as it arrived at the From Japan warehouse, I shipped my goods to me! This Pokemon Doll only cost me 2,200 yen, which in pounds is ยฃ14.72.

Glaceon wasn’t straight forward and if anything was kind of stressful. The person who had listed the cheap Eevee Pokemon Doll also listed a Glaceon for roughly the same price. However, the order got cancelled as someone else had snagged the bargain ice Pokemon quicker than I had. I quickly ordered a back up I had in my watch list/favourites, which was painful considering how much more it was. I paid 2,700 yen which in pounds is ยฃ18.15. It was worth it though!

Leafeon was one of the easiest I ordered alongside with Eevee as it never got cancelled and it seemed to be a popular Eeveelution Pokemon Doll for sale too, making it really easy to find. It’s such a cute Pokemon Doll, it’s one my friend Sarah (Raiin Monkey) owns so whenever I see it, I always think of her. I paid 2,600 yen which in pounds is ยฃ17.40.

Sylveon was fairly easy to get hold of, but it was also the most expensive! It appears whilst people love Sylveon, they also don’t seem to love it as much considering how many of them were listed on From Japan. The prices seemed to rise every time a new listing was made for it too, which is crazy! I paid 3,851 which is pounds is ยฃ25.77, quite the price jump from the previous Eeveelution Pokemon Dolls, but totally worth it!

These arrived a week after I paid for airmail shipping and they arrived in a bubble wrap style package. I expected a box to be honest with you, but due to them being plushies it worked out fine! Some of the plushies (as you’ll see from the photos above) had tags, which I didn’t expect from some of them!

As always, I’m really happy with all the goodies I bought from From Japan and they’ve all arrived in perfect condition.

I posted a reel on my Instagram page all about buying these and it has done SO WELL, which has really made me smile. I’ll pop it above so you can see it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A lot of people have already asked when I’ll be making a fourth order with From Japan… But I don’t know the answer to that question yet. I’m trying to be good with money since I bought my car. I am planning to use From Japan more in the future to buy my Pokemon goodies (old and new) as well as more! In the future, would you guys like to see a post of my From Japan wish list? ๐Ÿ™‚

What do you guys think of the goodies I ordered and had arrive From Japan? What’s your favourite? Who is your favourite Eeveelution too? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

I know the UK is not only a very warm place right now, but a bit scary too with restrictions being lifted from tomorrow. So, until next time please take care all and feel free to drop me a DM on Twitter/Instagram if you ever need someone to talk to. โค

June Wish List โ€˜21

I am officially off work for a week! HORRAY! This has been much needed as I can’t actually remember the last time I was on holiday for more than a few days or over a long weekend. Work has been busy lately so it’s much needed! I’m excited to spend time with Dane, as well as some much needed catch up time with friends.

I do have some amazing and exciting news to share with you all for this month wish list post… I made affiliate on Twitch on Tuesday! I always said I wanted to aim for gaining affiliate at the end of May, but I got it on the first day of June instead, which is close enough. ๐Ÿ˜›

It’s also mine and Dane’s eight year anniversary on Tuesday. The years have flown by! It’ll be nice just to spend the day together. We’re planning to have a chilled day and have a picnic style dinner with drinks and yummy snack foods. ๐Ÿ˜€

I have decided in June that I’m actually going to be on a spending ban due to being aย littleย bit too spend happy in May. I have zero regrets for a lot of the items I purchased and pre-ordered but yeah, I’ve been a bit silly. ๐Ÿ˜›

This month there are a few items on the list that are pre-orders and one that is a HUGE wish list item… Pretty sure you’ll already see which one that is, huh? ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Smoko Astro Tayto Night Light – (link)

As regular readers may know and remember, I LOVE Smoko and their cute AF original characters and homeware items. It all started off with Elodie the Unicorn and has slowly moved over to Asian food related items and Tayto. A cute coach potato with big goals in life. Recently he’s been sent off into space, ASTRO TAYTO!ย  As Smoko is located in America, I always keep eyes peeled on Firebox’s website for any new Smoko releases. Last week Astro Tayto was added to the website and I had to fight the urge to order him there and then. I’d love to get him for my desk, at least in our bedroom to be with the other Smoko night lights I own!

  • Studio Ghibli Kikiโ€™s Delivery Service Jiji & Soft Toy Jiji Clock – (link)

I’ve had this item bookmarked in my “wish list” folder for quite some time now, but due to the price I’ve just not made the plunge to order it. I would like a clock in our office as we don’t actually have one and a Ghibli themed one would be to die for! This one is of Jiji and toy Jiji together, which I think is such a cute idea personally! Kiki’s Delivery Service has fast turned into one of my favourite Ghibli movies over the years and it was only from being in Japan in January 2020 that made me realise how much I love it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sanrio PomPomPurin x Miki Takei Mini Letter Set – (link)

I decided in 2020 with everything that went on with lockdown that I would really love to write letters to some of my friends as a reminder of how much I love them, how proud I am of them and sometimes share some old and funny memories too! I bought a wax seal stamp set last year/early 2021 too so I’d love to seal letters with that! As many regular readers will know, I LOVE Pompompurin, the cute little pudding dog created by Sanrio. This letter set is so fucking cute and I definitely want a couple of packs in my life so I can write to my friends.

  • JeanaDraws Lakko the Otter Apparel, Bag & Pins Kickstarter – (link)

This is a Kickstarter that I backed at the end of May and also one that doesn’t begin to fulfil until the end of the year in December. I wanted to mention it on this months wish list though because I wish I could have the cardigan I’ve backed for NOW! There are various items to back for, including knitwear, a plushie bag and enamel pins. As shown in the image I’m backing for he brown cardigan. I do love snuggling in cardigans in the colder months and I think this one is perfect for me with both working from home and out and about. I’d also really love to back for the Lakko bag too, but this isn’t my style, sadly.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Tohru and Kanna Plushies.

These are pre-order items from YY Kawaii back in January and I cannot wait for them to arrive this month. Regular readers will know that Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is one of my favourite anime and manga series. When I saw these two cuties available for pre order I wanted to snag them to keep in our bookshelf with all my copies of the manga. I think they’re due around the end of June so I’ll soon be showing them off on Instagram when they’ve arrived.

  • Hot Topic Studio Ghibli Kiki’s Delivery Service Oversized Cardigan.

Another Kiki’s Delivery Service AND cardigan item! I saw this for sale on Hot Topic a while ago and fell in love with it, however I didn’t like how much it might cost me to get it to the UK, so I left it. I recently discovered it for sale on a website based in the UK, so in the future Iย mightย buy it from them, if not a personal shopper I use in America. It’s a cute and simple cardigan, I like the fact it’s cream as I don’t own anything like that. Most of my cardigans are rainbow colours. It would be nice to have a neutral one for the summer months.

  • Maybe a new car…?

Finally… Iย MIGHTย be getting myself a new car this month. I spontaneously starting looking at cars online and I’ve discussed with Dane. I wouldn’t get a brand new one by the way, but I’d definitely opt for a car with a good age against it. My current car is amazing and gets me from A to B, but I think it’s starting to show it’s age of late. I want a car me and Dane can share so if he doesn’t want to use his, we can always use mine in confidence. Plus, it would have something nice like that! I said when I returned from Japan I would get myself a new car, but then COVID happened and messed up my plans. We shall see… I’ve seen one I like which we might go with. You never know. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, there we have it! My wish list for June! I’m really excited for June to be honest with you, the weather is already gorgeous and we’re already getting plans organised with people who we’ve missed during lockdown and COVID.

Not only am I interested in what you guys have on your wish lists this month, but do you have plans with loved ones and friends this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time guys, take are and I’ll see you next time!

Japan Haul #1 – Pokemon Center

Guys it is officially the first post of my Japan trip and I am so excited to share it with you today!

I decided to kick start this post with two things I love, hauls and Pokemon. YES I will be sharing with you guys not only the goods I picked up from the Pokemon Center, but a quick glimpse of the Pokemon Center’s I ventured to as well as some random Pokemon bits and pieces too.

As a lot of you know, I am a massive fan of Pokemon and have been since the young age of 9 (I lose track of how old I was but I think I was roughly this age?). I’ve never looked back and it’s still a massive love of mine 21 years later.

Of course when I went to Japan I HAD to go to the Pokemon Center… More than one to be fair. ๐Ÿ˜› I ventured to the Tokyo DX, Tokyo Station and Shibuya (Parco). Me and Dane did try to go to Mega Tokyo in Sunshine City, but this was closed. They’re currently refurbishing it for renewal, which will reopen in Spring this year! Sad that we missed out on that store… They did have the Pokemon Go Lab, which is a Pokemon Center… But full of Pokemon Go merch! We walked past and had a glace,but we weren’t bothered about going in to be honest with you… We don’t play Pokemon Go as much as we used to… Although we may get back into it for some fitness.

Years ago I discovered the Pokemon Center existed in Japan back in around 2011 when I finished university. I had loads of time on my hands and found out LOADS about it! I wanted to go, be there and experience it myself. I’d search for YouTube videos, just so I could see what it was like and imagine I was there. I never thought I’d get to go to the Pokemon Center myself, so being able to go with Dane was something magical for me and I was so excited.

The first one we went to was the Tokyo Station one, which is tiny! I was fascinated by all the plushies they had in there and wanted to buy so many. They also had a limited coin machine you could get a printed brass/copper coin from too for just 200 yen. I didn’t get one on my first trip. I went back and picked one up.

Just an FYI with this post, I won’t be including prices, as most stuff I honestly don’t remember… I just remember buying lots of stuff I wanted and paying a lot of money… ๐Ÿ˜›
I bought a few plushies from the Tokyo Station Pokemon Center including a Cyndaquil plushie and a Poke Doll Mew plushie. Surprising, Cyndaquil is one of my favourite Pokemon and out of all the games, it’s also my favourite starter to choose from too.
Later that day we ventured over to the Tokyo DX Pokemon Center, as we had the Pokemon Cafe booked (which I will be talking about on another post soon!) for the evening and Tokyo DX is right next door!

Just entering the building that takes you up to the Pokemon Centre and Cafe is amazing. There are four pictures that line the sides of the room which are COVERED in loads of different Pokemon and a lift in the middle. You have to take the left up to the 5th floor in order to get to both the Pokemon Center and Cafe. The doors open behind you when you reach the 5th floor and you’re met with a massive Snorlax, Mew and Pikachu statue in front of you with the Pokemon Cafe on the left and the Pokemon Center on the right of it. I was in awe and felt like a little kid. I was FINALLY at a Pokemon Center and I knew then that I was going to enjoy this moment the best I could. I took as much in as possible.

We had plenty of time to look around the Pokemon Center before our slot at the Pokemon Cafe was due, so we made sure to spend as much time shopping, taking photos and admiring the store as we could.

When you enter the Tokyo DX store they have a history wall to showcase and celebrate all of the Pokemon games that have come out, so from Red, Blue and Yellow back in 1996 to where we are now with Sword and Shield! It was amazing.

As well as that, outside where the area is for the statue (which separates the Pokemon Cafe and Center) there are little silhouettes of all Pokemon to date that cover the wall around the area. This was pretty cool to have a look at and we made sure to glance over as many of the silhouettes as we could! They have so much space leftover too to add anymore Pokemon, which is really cool. They clearly thought the idea through before doing it, which is amazing!

One thing I took advantage of at the Pokemon Center is the birthday discount you can get. If you visited the Pokemon Center (apart from the Tokyo Station, the other two I mentioned above did this!) on the month of your birthday you could get a birthday card, a crown AND 5% off that day in the Pokemon Center, amazing eh?! I made sure to take advantage of this. I just needed to show my passport as proof and I was okay. You get to write down what name you would like in your card (I did this twice I did one with Nat and the other with Natalee) and they get a crown for you too. On the back of the birthday card is the discount, which you MUST use that day (and I assume only in that store too?), which I made sure to do!

I don’t think I grabbed the discount when I visited the Tokyo DX store for a second time, which I was a tad annoyed about as I bought more than I intended to… OOPS!

I’ll talk about each store for now and of course, mention what I bought from there too.

First of all I’ll share what I picked up from the Tokyo Station store.

Mew Poke Doll Plush – I LOVE the Poke Doll plushies from the Pokemon Center and as I already own four of the Eeveelution Poke Dolls already, I know I wanted to get this Mew to add to my collection. Mew is one of my favourite Pokemon’s and when I saw and looked at this cute little Mew, I knew I had to pick it up. It’s eyes are huge, so kawaii!

Cyndaquil Poke Plush – Cyndaquil is actually my favourite starter Pokemon and has been since I first played Pokemon Silver in 2001. I knew that during our Japan trip I would pick up a Cyndaquil plushie at some point. I ended up getting two in the end (the second one was from a second hand store, so won’t be included on this post) which I wasn’t shocked by. At first I picked up one of the Pokemon Fit plushies but when I saw a bigger plush for just 100 yen more, I decided to pick this one up. It’s flame back is so damn fluffy and bushy! I couldn’t have asked for a better Cyndaquil plushie to be honest with you.

Dratini Plush Keychain – This was something I had been eyeing up loads during the whole holiday, as I had seen it through YY Kawaii when the campaign it came from first came out. I put off buying it until the last couple of days we were there. I wanted it, so I decided to pick it up! It’s a cute little Dratini plush keychain that has found its home on my Kanken backpack. If the weathers rubbish (which, let’s face it, has been awful lately!) I’ll take it off and pop it into my backpack until the weather improves. In Japan a lot of people (both men and women of all ages!) had plush mascot keychains on their bags, which I loved seeing! I’ve hardly seen it since getting back to the UK and it makes me sad. I like to think someone will see my backpack and my Dratini will make them smile. ๐Ÿ™‚

As I mentioned previously in the post, I ventured to the Pokemon Center in Shibuya, but to be honest with you I only bought one thing (which is why I’m showing this Pokemon Center next)! The Pokemon Center itself was incredibly impressive with the Mewtwo in the glass tank, as well as some of the exclusive Shibuya goods. However, as we had previously ventured to the Tokyo DX Pokemon Center, this was incredibly underwhelming… Size wise anyway and the sort of items on offer.

Eevee Roll Cookie Tin – I had looked for this cookie tin in the Tokyo DX store, but all of the Eevee ones had gone, with only the Pikachu ones left. I like Pikachu… But not as much as Eevee! These have been opened by me and Dane and eaten some of the yummy treats! The roll cookies come in chocolate and honey flavours and they’re gorgeous! You didn’t get the chocolate ones in the Pikachu tin. I don’t know what I’ll be doing with the tin after all the goodies are eaten. ๐Ÿ˜›

So, I have saved the best until last… In terms of Pokemon Center’s… I found that Tokyo DX was my favourite out of the three I went to as it was the biggest and hence had more variety! It also had loads of artwork to take photos with. OH and the Pokemon Cafe was next door. ๐Ÿ˜› I visited this Pokemon Center twice, as I just felt the need to go again to spend my monies. ๐Ÿ˜›

I’ve been so excited to share with you guys all the goodies I bought and what better item to start off with, than with an adorable plushie! ๐Ÿ˜›

Mew Sekiguchi Plush – I have wanted this plushie for about 4 years, so when I saw it in the Pokemon Center I knew I had to grab it! It wasn’t cheap, but I knew I was expecting to spend a lot of money in the Pokemon Center anyway so… Yeah. ๐Ÿ˜› I think this was 2,900 yen, which in pounds works out around ยฃ20. This is so fuzzy and squishy which is amazing! It’s definitely something that stands out in my plushie case (it’s a book case full of plushies :P) which I love. I honestly regret not picking up the Eevee, Umbreon and Espeon Sekiguchi plushies too. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Pokeball Random Mini Plush (Eevee) – This was a spontaneous item I picked up from the Pokemon Center and it was purely because me and Dane thought it would be fun to have a go and see which Pokemon we get! We could have gotten two different Pikachu’s, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Vulpix, Gengar, Snorlax, Mew, or Eevee, which is the Pokemon we got! It’s adorable and I couldn’t have asked for a better Pokemon to have inside the Pokeball. ๐Ÿ™‚ The Pokeball clips into itself so it’s easy enough to open and close. I hate it open on my plushie case with the Eevee inside.

Eeveelution Puzzleย – Me and Dane love doing puzzles together so when we spotted this Eeveelution one, we knew that we had to pick it up! It’s not a massive one, but it’s one we will make up and hang up in the house somewhere. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mofu Mofu Eevee Mirror – I didn’t really need a new pocket mirror for my backpack, but I fell in love with the Mofu Mofu Eevee collection and whatever I found with the Mofu Mofu design on, I wanted. I started using this mirror when I got back to the UK and sadly, my first outing with this and using it, my perfume bottle leaked and it’s ruined some of the pattern on the front. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ This being said, it’s still kawaii!

Mofu Mofu Eevee Bento Lunch Pouch – I wanted so much more from the Mofu Mofu collection, especially the lunch related goods. I knew I couldn’t buy them all however, so I just picked up the lunch pouch, which I’ve been using for work to take my lunch in… Obviously. ๐Ÿ˜› It’s so damn cute, it makes me happy to take my lunch to work in.

Eevee Cookie Tin – If there was one thing that the Pokemon Center has loads of, it was cookie tins! If anything, I regret not buying more. ๐Ÿ˜› I picked up this Eevee cookie tin, as I’ve seen it around for years and knew I wanted to pick it up. The cookies inside are chocolate, with white chocolate in the middle. This is really nice, but to be honest they do leave a funny aftertaste in your mouth.

Camera Strap – July last year I treated myself to a new camera, a mirrorless one at that both for my holiday to Japan, as well as in general. As much as I love my digital SLR, it can be quite a chunk to carry around. Anyhoo, the camera strap that came with my new Sony camera is horrible and would cut into my neck… Not good! I noticed this Pokemon camera strap for sale and decided to get it! It has some of the more popular Pokemon on the strap itself, as well as a handy lens cap holder too! This was great to have whilst we were travelling around Japan and just wanted to keep taking photos, without the worry of losing the lens cap. I love this strap so much, its one of my favourite purchases during the holiday

Just an FYI – I bought a LOT of stationary related stuff from the Pokemon Center! I’ve been using it a lot for my Dungeons & Dragons sessions, as we as writing down notes here and there for my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love stationary and have always wanted stationary from the Pokemon Center, so it was just something I knew I was going to buy a lot of. ๐Ÿ˜›

Mofu Mofu Eevee Notebook – I have too many notebooks… I needed this one though. It’s adorable! I don’t quite know what I’m going to use it for as of yet… Maybe blog related stuff whilst I’m out and about? Dungeons & Dragons in the future? I don’t know… ๐Ÿ˜› I just needed it! The designs on the front are adorable, with all the Eevee’s doing different things such as sleeping on books, holding quills in their mouths and sitting in teacups. Cute! There’s designs in the book too, with the Eevee holding the quill in it’s mouth again.

Mofu Mofu Clear File – I bought quite a few clear files whilst I was in Japan, but this is my favourite one by far! I actually bought this to keep my files in for Dungeons & Dragons, but as of yet I haven’t had the chance to use it. The image on the front of the two Eevee’s is so adorable, I’d frame it to be honest! ๐Ÿ˜›

Mofu Mofu Eevee Pen Case – I didn’t need a pen case… But due to how much stationary I bought whilst I was on my holiday, I kind of had to! That and the pencil case I use currently for all my stationary items is from when I was studying my GCSE’s at school… Which was 15 years ago now! That pencil case is great, but I wanted something smaller and more refreshing! This one is a perfect signs for everything I bought on the trip, and I really enjoy taking it out with me. It’s so cute to bring out of my bag when I want something to write with. The image of the Eevee’s cuddling together on he one side is so kawaii!

Mofu Mofu Eevee Mechanical Pencil and Pen – The blue design is the pen, the red is the pencil. There were four designs/colours in total including the blue and red ones I own, as well as a brown (pencil) and green (pen I think). I didn’t really want anymore mechanical pencils as I have a pink one I really love (well… loved until I bought my new ones in Japan :P) to use so I didn’t need another mechanical pencil. I picked up the pen, which is black ink and was happy. When I went back to the Pokemon Center, I ended up picking the pencil up too and I don’t regret it! The pencil writes really well and I much prefer it to my pink mechanical pencil to be honest with you! The designs on them both are gorgeous with the fluffy, happy Eevee designs all over.

Mofu Mofu Eevee Washi Tape – I decided whilst I was in Japan that I would become a washi tape collector… Purely because I’m working on a scrapbook soon about our trip to Japan and wanted to use cute patterned washi tape to make the scrapbook look pretty inside. Of course I couldn’t not pick up the mofu mofu design, which is just loads of cute Eevee’s running along the tape. I haven’t opened this yet and don’t plan to until it comes to me using it.

Pikachu Mechanical Pencil Lead – Due to now owning a total of four mechanical pencils, it’s always good to make sure to have plenty of pencil lead for these! I couldn’t get a mofu mofu Eevee design (they didn’t make one…) so instead I picked up a cute Pikachu design instead, which is kind of similar to the mofu mofu design. This came with quite a lot of 0.5 size led inside already, but as I owned some already from my first mechanical pencil, I decided to add them into this holder. I’ll never run out of led now!

Eevee, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Dragonite and Mew B-Side Label Stickers – Finally we have some stickers from the Pokemon Center. I’d heard about the B-Side label stickers from YY Kawaii and had always wanted to buy some… But never did. However, when I was in the Pokemon Center, I went overboard! I bought three when I went for the first time and then another three when I went the second time! There were cheap at 350 yen (ยฃ2.43) but the more you picked up, the more the price wound up! I picked up the Eevee, Dragonite and Mew stickers as these are my three favourite Pokemon. So, when I visited the Pokemon Center again, I knew I had to pick up the rest of the original Eeveelutions from Gen 1 as they were at the till I was being served at. I have zero regrets, I just don’t know where to stick them now. ๐Ÿ˜›

Overall, that is my haul from the Pokemon Center’s in Tokyo! I did buy more Pokemon goodies which were official from other stores, secondhand, or from kuji’s both me and Dane played on. I’ll be talking about those in another post in the future.

What did you guys think of the Pokemon Center’s I ventured to? As well as the goodies I picked up? What would you pick up from the Pokemon Center if you had the chance to go? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time all, take care and I hope you’re having a lovely weekend so far, I’m poorly at the moment… Which sucks. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

October Favourites ’18

At the time of writing this blog post I am in the middle of packing for a little weekend to London (which I mentioned a couple of weeks back here) to see my friend Sophi, as well as go around London for some shopping and coffee and bubble tea dates. ๐Ÿ˜›

I can’t believe how quickly this month has gone though, but at the same time I feel like it’s really dragged… Maybe it’s due to autumn setting in with darker nights and such like that. Meh, it’s November and with that it is almost Christmas too. Damn.

This months wish list wasn’t too bad to write to be fair, I sometimes worry I struggle to try and think of beauty and lifestyle things each month that I’ve loved.

So, enough of me rambling, on with the favourites!

  • Carex Unicorn Magic Shower and Bath.

I have been loving this bubble bath throughout the month. It’s definitely bath season again and I have been loving having a good soak on my weekends off work, especially Sunday’s! This unicorn magic range by Carex is amazing and I have honestly been loving it and for just a ยฃ1 for each item, it’s such a bargain. I picked the hand wash and shower and bath up from Savers for that price, but I’m sure you can find them in Poundland and such for the same money too.

  • Lime Crime Plushies in Cherry Soda (review).

I recently reviewed the two Lime Crime Plushies that I own and I love them both SO MUCH! They’re definitely my go to lipstick at the moment as I love how they feel, as well as how long they last. I couldn’t get along with Cherry Soda at first, which really disappointed me as this was the shade I really wanted the most from this collection. Finally, I have started to get along with it and I’m so damn happy! It’s a gorgeous cherry red colour and it’s just beautiful. I especially love how these colours give a sort of blotted effect to the lips.

  • The Body Shop Strawberry Softening Body Butter.

I’m really loving The Body Shop lately and I do not apologise for featuring at least one product every month lately for the past God knows how many months! ๐Ÿ˜› This month I have been LOVING the strawberry body butter, which I’ve been using on my hands at work and on the go. I know it’s a body butter, but I just don’t get along with The Body Shop hand creams that much. They’re just not “strong” enough for my eczema. I got this free in a gift set due to spending a certain amount in The Body Shop and I do love it. It’ll definitely be something I’ll pick up in future to use for my hands. Of course I can only imagine this is amazing for the body too!

  • Newtons Labs T-Zone Spot Zapping Gel.

This has been a GOD SEND to me lately! I don’t know why but my face just broke out in zits for what felt like a month, which was horrible. I always get zits around time of the month and that’s normal to me. It’s a sign of (sadly) what is to come and I am used to that. A whole month of them though? IT SUCKED! They were all on the left side of my face, as well as my jaw line which I found so odd. It might be where I rest my head on my hand at work or something, I don’t know. I just pop a little bit of this one before my moisturiser in the mornings and as and when I need it. It’s only 99p from places like Body Care and Savers and it lasts AGES! Definitely worth picking one up if you still get the odd zit on and off. Honestly kids, I’m nearly 30 and I still get zits! ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Dior Addict Eau de Parfum.

This is one of my favourite perfumes and I always graviate to it when the colder weather comes. It’s such a gorgeous and unique scent and one I really love. My mom bought this for me when I was 25 and thankfully it hasn’t gone off! She bought it me for my birthday when we went to Fuerteventura together for our birthday’s. I don’t know how to describe the scent to be honest with you, it’s strong and bold and it’s something that definitely stands out. It’s floral but to me it smells kind of sweet as well. It’s definitely a mature perfume and I’d be surprise if anyone 21 and under wore it! Dane loves this too, so I like when I’m wearing it and he comments. ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Favourite TV Show – Big Mouth Season 2.

I remember me and Dane watching Big Mouth when it first came out and we was in Fuerteventura at the time. It was hilarious and definitely something different at the time. It recently came back for a second season and it’s just as funny as the first! I especially love that in one of the episodes they had a sexual education approach to it, it worked so well and they did such an amazing job. I think shows like this need to definitely be shown in schools, swearing or not it gets the message across (in a very funny way) about puberty and basically the flaws of being a teenager. I really hope this gets another season next year!

Favourite Film – Sierra Burgess Is A Big Loser.

I remember seeing the trailer for this on Instagram and I KNEW I had to watch it! It reminded me of a book I would have read growing up. I didn’t realise it was a film until me and Dane put it on. Netflix usually shouts TV series to me so that’s what I expected this to be. Alas it’s a film and one I rather liked. I wouldn’t say loved, but I’ll touch on that. It’s a good film, especially being set now but at the same it’s so bloody cringe it’s crazy. I definitely recommend watching it, as it was a good watch but I don’t feel like I need to watch it again. I do wonder if it would have worked better as a TV series… But do we have too many teen drama series on Netflix right now? Nah not really. ๐Ÿ˜› Let’s put it this way, this isn’t like My Mad Fat Diary, that show is amazing. ๐Ÿ˜›

Favourite Book – Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life.

I recently bought volume 3 of this manga and like all the others, I LOVED it! The art style of the manga is always amazing and for a spin off series I actually find it’s better than the original! Kanna has been a massive hit with all sorts of people and when you read the manga and watch the anime you can really see why. She’s adorable and I certainly fell in love with her, so it’s no wonder that they created a manga series based on her! They’ve now released pre orders in the UK for a manga series based off of Elma, who is my favourite dragon out of the bunch! She just reminds me of me with her love of food and the fact she works in an office, haha. If you love Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid the manga or the anime (or both), then you need to read Kanna’s Daily Life!

Favourite Podcast – My Dad Wrote A Porno.

Okay I know this isn’t music, but it’ll do! I discovered this podcast randomly online and I just had to listen as it’s bloody hilarious! This guys dad has written a porno and with the help of his two friends is reading it for us all to hear! I started listening to it towards the start of October and it’s hilarious. I didn’t actually think I’d still be listening to it now! I’m currently on series 2 and book 2! If you fancy a giggle on your way to and from work, then give this a listen. It’s pretty cringe but fuck it’s hilarious! Obviously if you don’t like listening to sexual sort of stuff, meh you won’t want to listen to this. I have an iPhone and if you search in the podcast app, you’ll soon find this to listen to!

Favourite Game – LEGO DC Super-Villains.

I was going to actually mention Kingdom Hearts this month but to be honest with you that game has made me rage quit various times, it hasn’t been a favourite… Although I have enjoyed playing it! This game came out just over 2 weeks ago but me and Dane have played it together almost daily! I’m so glad he’s wanted to play this with me so much, as I worried he’d get bored with it after a few days. I do love playing the LEGO games and I’ve mentioned my excitement for this game quite a lot on my blog lately (which you can read about here). It plays really well to be honest and it’s definitely up there as one of my favourite LEGO games to date! The detail in the customisation is incredible and so in depth. Both me and Dane have made out super-villains and at the time of writing this post, the story has BLOWN UP and some serious tea has been spilt. ๐Ÿ˜›

SO those are my favourites from October! I still can’t believe it’s November now! This year has seriously flown by and it’s crazy. Next month I’ll have been in my job a year, Christmas will be around the corner and soon enough after that I’ll be turning 29. Urgh.

What favourites have you got from October? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time take care all and I hope you’re all ready for the weekend.

Lime Crime Plushies – Review

Woohoo I haven’t written a review in what feels like FOREVER. I’ve been sitting on these and waiting for the right time to write a review on them and it finally feels like time to get something done and out there.

As I always do with reviews, I’ll talk a little about the company, the products and show plenty of pictures of the items.

So I’m binge watching The Office whilst I write this, so let’s get on it!

 

Lime Crime have been around for 10 years now and at first everyone went made for their products, but a while ago people were boycotting them. Over the years I’ve on and off wanted to try and use their products, but always been apprehensive due to various different things.

Years ago me and my friend Claire were talking about make up brands we love and she was telling me about how much she loved Lime Crime’s Velvetines liquid lipsticks and even showed me some. I loved the texture of them, as well as the how long the product lasted. I wanted to order one but I was really into Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks at the time and for a year I couldn’t wear any lipstick products due to an infection/eczema on my lips.

Thankfully I can now wear my favourite lip products again, but from having the year hiatus from them it’s made me realise that I don’t really like liquid lipsticks anymore, or at least not half as much as before. I still love my lipsticks, lip creams and lip tints but I really did miss how long lasting liquid lipsticks are.

When Lime Crime announced their Plushies back in January this year, I got a little excited to see what new product they planned on bringing out. When they revealed it and showed swatches of the lip product I knew I eventually had to own it!

I’d on and off wanted to buy some lip products from Lime Crime in the past, including their Diamond Crushers but every time I went to websites and added them to my cart I just never really ended up going through with it. I’m glad I didn’t in the end as I don’t think I’d have worn them.

After months of even being undecided about the Plushies, I FINALLY ordered not one, but two shades and they have fast turned into my go to lipsticks to wear for work and on days off.

I ordered Cherry Soda and Gum Drop from Beauty Bay quite a while ago it feels now and since then I’ve worn both shades a handful of times. I’ll be talking about both shades, how they look and how they both wear as I feel they’re both somewhat different.

Experience the softer side of a bold matte lipstick with Plushies, the new generation of nude lips. Non-opaque, soft focus formula enhances natural lip color while making your lips look as plush as a teddy bear! This highly pigmented and long wearing soft matte lipstick keeps its just-applied look for hours. Choose from our selection of 18 different shades, our collection of soft matte lipsticks has something for everyone. Offering a burst of creamy color and full coverage, this formula goes on silky smooth and sets to a beautiful matte finish. One coat is all you need for that coveted my-lips-but-better effect, or build to your liking for more intensity. Show off your beautiful natural lips with the blackberry scented Plushies from Lime Crime.

Plushies are a liquid lipstick but softer in texture and feel and are made to look more natural to application and colour payoff. They remind me of a lip tint but more opaque, which I really like! These feel really velvety when worn but last ALL DAY! They’re so much more comfortable than a liquid lipstick too, well in my opinion anyway.

Make your lips look as plush โ€“ and playful โ€“ as a cuddly toy with Lime Crimeโ€™s new generation of nude lip colours. The velvety matte, soft-focus formula enhances your natural lip colour with touch-proof, hassle-free, all-day wear (itโ€™s so comfortable, youโ€™ll forget youโ€™re even wearing it) and itโ€™s infused with an irresistible candied blackberry scent. The super-sweet shades range from sheer golden brown โ€˜Butterscotchโ€™ to deep red โ€˜Jamโ€™ via sheer berry โ€˜Gum Dropโ€™. Theyโ€™re utterly irresistible!

Before I talk about the shades, I want to quickly talk about the packaging. It’s so cute and playful and reminds me of something you would have seen in the 90’s/00’s, which is what Lime Crime is all about! The tube itself contains 3.5ml of product which is clear so you can see the product inside. The lid is a gorgeous baby pink shade with a cute white teddy on. Such a lovely touch and the rubber feel of the lid makes it feel comfortable and easy to hold when applying the shade.

The first shade I’m going to talk about is Cherry Soda, which is actually a limited edition shade made only for certain stores. It’s a soft cherry red and is such a gorgeous shade of red for all times of year, especially autumn and winter! This is the colour that I’ve always wanted to get out of all the Plushies but at first this colour was one I just didn’t feel like I could get on with and due to that I worried I was going to regret my decision of buying it. More recent however I’ve really got along with Cherry Soda and it’s such a fabulous shade, which I cannot wait to wear more of during the Christmas period this year!

Cherry Soda applies really nicely without any patchiness or streaks throughout, but before now it has done so I feel like you need to apply this in one go and not layer, otherwise that patchy look will be there. I just love how delicate this red shade looks, like just bitten lips which is a trend I have ALWAYS loved! I love bold shades, but to have a bold shade and it also be delicate and blotted looking is really nice and a total game changer.

The second shade I picked up is Gum Drop. I’ve always liked the idea of picking up this shade as it reminds me a little of MAC Rebel, which is one of my favourite lipsticks! It’s a sheer berry colour and looks so perfect if you want to experiment with a dark berry shade, but don’t want it to be too out there and in your face! This is definitely a shade to wear during autumn and winter, berry doesn’t really shout spring and summer to me. ๐Ÿ˜›

Unlike Cherry Soda this has always applied like a dream and has rarely been patchy or streaky. At times it has been but it’s nothing a bit of blotting can’t deal with! Like Cherry Soda, this also looks like a blotted colour but the colour also packs a punch, which I really liked. Something that I noticed on both of the Plushies is that they have a fruity and sweet scent to them, but I couldn’t put my finger on what exactly they smelt of. When I searched for it online, it turns out it’s blackberry sweets, which I think is really cool! Blackberry does seem a tad random to me though… These are also meant to wear like liquid lipsticks, which I tend to find they do to be honest with you! I’ve worn these at work all day and they’ve lasted well. If anything they’ll start to wear down on the inside of my lip and this will usually happen after drinking loads of water/hot drinks and then eating lunch.

They feel really velvety on the lips too and you wouldn’t even know they were there!

Overall I LOVE Lime Crime’s Plushies and they’re definitely a game changer for me. As I said before, liquid lipsticks aren’t really my thing anymore but I wanted something like them with a good staying power. The blotted and nude look and payoff of the Plushies really works for me and it’s something that I’d been after for the longest time. Of course I picked up the brighter colours but they have LOADS of nude and natural looking shades, there is just something for everyone.

I have my eye on more shades in all honesty, including Angelic (sheer muted mauve) and Sorbet (fire red).

What do you think to Lime Crime’s Plushies? Have you tried them and if so which shade(s) do you like? Do you want to try them and if so which shade(s) do you want to try?

Also make sure to let me know which Lime Crime products you like the look of, own etc!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend and are having a good week so far.

YY Kawaii Collective Haul

I cannot tell you how many months I’ve been trying to write this blog post now! It must have been 3 months at least. It’s just taken so long as I’ve either had to wait for stuff to come out and be sent to me, or I’ve ended up pre-ordering more things and decided to wait for them to arrive so I could do a huge collective haul. Finally all my stuff has arrived now so I can do this post, yays!

I love YY Kawaii and have done for as long as I can remember. She stocks so much awesome stuff from Japan, including two of my favourite things, Pokemon and Persona 5, as well as many other things.

I’ve mentioned YY Kawaii in the past on my blog (which you can read here) and I won’t be stopping talking about them anytime soon.

I hope you enjoy this little collective haul anyway. I’ll pop loads of links to YY Kawaii’s website as well as social media pages at the end of this post.

Just a heads up, I’ll be talking about the stuff I bought in the order I bought it.

  • How To Keep A Mummy Mii-Kun Plush

This is something I had pre-ordered before from YY Kawaii but sadly when she went to pick up the plushies they had ALL sold out so I was given a refund. So as soon as the chance to pre-order came up again I KNEW I had to get in there quickly! Then July came and so did Mii-Kun. I was so excited to receive this plushie and when I did I fell so in love! It now sits by my bed and has so far appeared on one of my blog posts (which you can read here) as he just looked so cute with my pin flag! He wasn’t cheap considering his size but he was oh so worth it! He’s just the perfect size, especially if you would cosplay with him! I don’t think these are available anymore, but I’ve since seen Mii-Kun’s for sale online.

  • Persona 5 Joker Plushie Keychain

When this Joker plushie first went up for sale and pre order I was going to order, but a part of me was put off due to the size. I wanted a bigger Joker plush really. Then I saw people posting theirs on Instagram and I was a bit bummed, but it’s when YY Kawaii did a live video on her Instagram page showing the Persona 5 plushie keychains off that I really regretted not getting one. So I asked YY Kawaii if she could get anymore and she said she still could, so I put in my pre-order and waited for him to arrive. Joker and Mii-Kun actually arrived together, which was amazing! Joker for a while lived by my bed but now he’s on mine and Dane’s manga shelf in our living room. I wouldn’t want to keep him on a bag or anything as I’d be scared he would fall off! I wish I had bought Ryuji and Anna too now. It’s something I’ll definitely keep my eye on in sales etc in future!

  • Persona 5 Morgana Sega Cafe Exclusive Strap/Keychain

I legit ordered this just after my Joker plushie keychain arrived. It was funny because literally not long before YY Kawaii popped these up for sale I had looked at them on eBay in Japan and seen how expensive they were! I’m so glad I ordered it though, even though I’d done sod all with it! I was going to pop it on my car keys or even my Loungefly Star Wars backpack (which you can read about here) but the back of the design isn’t covered, so for how much I paid I worried the back would be scratched off and ruined. It’s happened with straps and keychains in the past and I’ve been gutted. I didn’t want that to happen again! So for now Morgana has been living on my Joker plushie keychain! I’m tempted to turn it into a necklace, but meh I don’t know. We’ll see!

  • 2018 Pokemon Collection Kuji Prize Eevee Bowl

When I kept seeing the 2018 Pokemon Collection kuji online on both YouTube and Instagram, I KNEW I had to have one of the bowls from the kuji! I asked YY Kawaii if she was able to get hold of any prizes separately and luckily she was able to get some of the bowls. I asked for the Eevee one and I was so excited for it to arrive! It’s not the biggest bowl in the world admittedly but either way it’s so cute! I’ve been using it for little snacks such as crisps, pretzels, M&M’s etc. I do really love it but I’m glad I only got one. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • 2018 Pokemon Collection Kuji Prize Vaporeon Strap/Keychain

Again like the bowl, I was so excited for this collection and honestly I wanted everything from it. I most of all wanted the Flareon strap/keychain but sadly YY Kawaii wasn’t able to get a hold of it due to how popular it was. Instead I opted for Vaporeon instead! Granted I didn’t need a new strap/keychain but this cute little Vaporeon was hard to say no to and it now lives on my car keys! I love the little jangling noise it makes against my keys. It’s actually quite relaxing.

  • Persona 5 Sega Prize Morgana Cushion

This is the last item on this list and is one that arrived yesterday, but I missed the parcel and had to go and pick it up this morning before work. I knew as soon as it was put up for pre-order that I had to have it. I’ve become a huge Persona 5 fan this past year and now that Morgana is coming out as plushies and such, I really need all the Morgana merch! This pillow is way bigger than I thought it was going to be and I am pleasantly surprised! I opened the parcel this morning before I headed into work and it is huge! You’ll see from the images just how big it is. Not only is it large in size but it is so squishy and soft, I’ve sat here cuddling it whilst writing this post. I cannot wait to use this as a cushion to rest my head on both upstairs in bed as well as on my cuddle chair in the living room. It’s just perfect and it’s definitely one of my favourite things on this haul alongside Mii-Kun.

So there are all the goodies I picked up from YY Kawaii these past couple of months! I wish I could have more on this list but I am trying to be good with money. ๐Ÿ˜› I do have some bits and pieces on a wish list in the back of my mind… ๐Ÿ˜› Hopefully they’ll become a reality in the future.

As I said at the start of this post, I’ll pop all of the links for YY Kawaii down below.

What do you guys think of my haul? Have you shopped with YY Kawaii before? If so let me know, as well as what you’ve bought.

Until next time, take care all and I hope your week is going well.

June Wish List ’18

I cannot believe we are now officially halfway through 2018. Where did May go?! I think most of it was spent enjoying the hot weather and having bank holidays to even realise it was going, going, gone!

Now it’s June and I REALLY struggled with my wish list this month. I’m so naughty, all the books I was lusting after and added to this list I have now bought as I really wanted them. Other than that it was so incredibly hard to try and come up with stuff to add to the list.

It’s mine and Dane’s fifth anniversary in a couple of days too so you’d think I’d post items that I’d be all, “YEAH I’D LOVE FOR DANE TO BUY ME THIS HINT HINT!” but I doubt that’s going to happen! ๐Ÿ˜›

URGH enough chitty chat, let’s get on with the wish list for this month.

  • Nintendo Switch Mario Tennis Aces – (link)

I haven’t actually bought myself any games for mine and Dane’s Nintendo Switch yet and we’ve owned it since March! I’ve had my eye on the new Mario tennis game since it was announced in March, not long before we’d bought our Switch funny enough. I’m a sucker for tennis games and for years have wanted the Mario tennis game on 3DS. This would be so much fun to play solo as well as with Dane! I’ll definitely be picking it up, especially from Smyths where you can save ยฃ5 off of your pre orders.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Vol. 6 – (link)

As regular readers of my blog will know, I’m loving the manga series of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid! I loved the anime, which was out last spring/summer so when I heard about the manga coming out in English, I picked it up to read. Since then, as soon as it comes out I order it! This has already been pre-ordered so I cannot wait for it to arrive now.

  • Living Dead Clothing My Neighbour Skater Dress – (link)

I’m a massive sucker for the dresses that the likes of Black Milk Clothing and Living Dead Clothing come out with, although I am yet to try the latter. I remember when Living Dead used to have their Studio Ghibli designs, but they didn’t stick around long. Recently I noticed two of the designs I wanted before were back AND they’re both in dresses, this one included. I really want to order it as a massive treat to myself, but for almost ยฃ50 before shipping, my soul is dying a little inside at the thought of it. I’ll see though if I fancy giving myself a massive fucking treat in the future.

  • Snotgirl Volume 2 – (link)

This has already been ordered and I cannot wait for it to arrive! During my May Favourites I wrote about how I’d loved reading volume 1 of Snotgirl so as soon as the second comic book came out I KNEW I had to order it right away! I can’t wait for this to arrive now so I can read it sooner rather than later.

  • Kidrobot Marvel Deadpool Riding A Unicorn Plush – (link)

I don’t quite know how, but recently I stumbled across this plush online and holy fucking shit how cute is it?! This is a massive Deadpool plushie that is riding a unicorn, but the best bit is that it vibrates/rumbles when you hug it or clap at it. Why? Well, why not? ๐Ÿ˜› I don’t need this, but I REALLY want it! It’d be so awesome to cuddle! This also comes in a smaller version too, which may be the better one to opt for. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Lime Crime Plushies in shade Cherry Soda – (link)

Since these were announced agggges ago I’ve wanted to try the Lime Crime plushies lipsticks, especially the shade Cherry Soda, but as of yet I just haven’t ordered it. There’s only one place that stocks this limited edition shade and that’s Cult Beauty. I do want to order it… BUT I don’t really wear lipstick anymore… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I might treat myself to it soon enough though.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life Vol. 2 – (link)

ANOTHER manga and it’s also another Miss Kobayashi one… It’s also one I’ve pre-ordered. ๐Ÿ˜› The Kanna’s Daily Life series is adorable and I really do love being able to read more about the baby dragon of the family. This is only volume 2 and I cannot wait to read it, like I said I really do love this series.

  • Nana Ebina Nendoroid – (link)

This is the final item on this months wish list, purely because I want her so damn much and she’s now available to buy. Nana Ebina is from the anime Himouto! Umaru-Chan and is school friends with Umaru and in turn is my favourite, so when I saw they’d announced a Nendoroid for her I was so excited! She’s an anxious character in many ways but she’s so sweet and adorable. I didn’t realise she came with the blue and white cuddle pillow cat from the show either but apparently she does! I’m hoping deep down that for our anniversary Dane has bought me Nana Ebina… I’ll report after our anniversary! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So that was my wish list for June! I’m sorry it wasn’t anything too exciting, I’m rather boring lately when it comes to buying things. ๐Ÿ˜›

What’s on your wish lists for June? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, I hope you’ve had an amazing weekend!

I’m Going To Comic-Con!

Image taken from weheartit.com

Yep you read the title correctly, I’m going to Comic Con this year… The Birmingham one of course!

As I have mentioned over and over, from time to time on my blog I am a massive nerd and my boyfriend shares this passion with me. We wanted to go to Comic Con in Birmingham earlier this year in March but it was last-minute and we were pretty poor at the time, so we ended up leaving it. This sucked whilst I was on my way home from Coventry on the train, as it passes Birmingham International, and as Comic Con is held at The NEC (which is practically next door to the airport) there were loads of people dotted around who had attended Comic Con.

We both said how we would go when the next Comic Con came around and now eight months later and we’re actually going! The tickets are booked, neither of us are working and we have some spending money to burn. We’re ready!

Due to how nerdy my boyfriend and I are, I can see me buying my boyfriend loads of Christmas presents, as well as some presents for one of my best friends. I won’t lie, I can see me buying myself some bits and pieces too…

Image taken from weheartit.com

Mish Mreow who is one of my favourite bloggers attended Comic Con in March and when she posted (you can check her posts here, here and here) some pictures from it, I was green with envy! The first image she posted was of loads of Pokemon plushies and I squealed with excitement! I know already that either my boyfriend will spoil me rotten and buy me quite a few for Christmas, or I’ll spoil myself rotten and buy myself some as a treat… Either way I’m going to be coming home with a Pokemon plushie!

My boyfriend is a huge Attack On Titan fan and he has actually gotten me into it since our holiday to Bristol and I couldn’t thank him anymore. I am going to be spoiling him to plenty of Attack On Titan goodies this Christmas. He does read my blog and he knew before reading this post that I would be spoiling him. So I am hoping there will be plenty of Attack On Titan goodies to choose from, as if I can pick him up some presents next weekend, then that’ll keep me happy!

My manga of choice at the moment is Nana, but I’ve had to stop reading it since the summer, due to no stores selling the next books I need! So I’m hoping that at Comic Con they’ll have the books that I actually need. Fingers crossed!

Now, some of you may be wondering if I’ll be cosplaying? Sadly my answer is no. I used to cosplay on and off when I was younger, but as I’ve got older I’ve found it’s more fun to watch people do it, than join in. Plus I can’t be bothered to spend loads of money on a cosplay outfit and instead invest said money in merchandise!

Are any of my readers going to Comic Con, or have you been before? If you’ve been before please let me know what it’s like in the comments, I want to know what I have in store for me!

Until next time, take care all and have a good weekend.
