Wish List Wednesday – Rainbow Fashion Collab Post!

Today’s wish list Wednesday is such an exciting one and it’s for one reason in particular! This is a collab post with the one and only wonderful blogger, Estelle over at Estellosaurus.

If there is one rainbow queen who I know it is her! I love her outfit posts and I always end up going to look at one piece of clothing she’s wearing in said post online.

It’s because of her that I recently bought myself a new rainbow cardigan and she’ll probably be the cause for many more rainbow purchases… She’s definitely a bad influence. πŸ˜›

So we decided to work together to do a collab post and I have been so excited to get it written down! We decided that I would do a wish list Wednesday about rainbow fashion pieces I want and Estelle is going to talk about the rainbow fashion pieces she owns. I would have done the same as Estelle, but sadly I only own two items, which are both my amazing rainbow cardigans! πŸ˜€

So without further ado, bring on the rainbow goodies!

  • Monki Rainbow Stripe Tee – (link)

I’ve had my eye on picking up a rainbow stripe tee from Monki for AGES but every time I’ve had a look at one it’s either sold out completely or sold out in my size! When I recently visited Bristol with Dane I had a look in the Monki shop inside Cabot Circus and got super excited! Sadly the rainbow stripe tee wasn’t in my size and it looks really cropped too, which sucked. I’m going to keep the hope alive though for a nice striped rainbow tee like this one!

  • Monki Crew Neck Rainbow Jumper – (link)

This jumper really does remind me of the one that Lazy Oaf brought out and it looks AMAZING! I would love this jumper to rock to work on Monday’s and Friday’s throughout the colder months, as well as over weekends with friends or lazy days in with Dane. I especially love that the sleeves are a little tighter, because although I love baggy sleeves that can hide my hands, it can be a bit of a pain when working. My only issue with this jumper is that it looks cropped… So I’d want to see what it looks like in the Bristol Monki store before buying!

  • Boohoo Rainbow Stripe T-Shirt Dress – (link)

I’ve been after some more t-shirt dresses for a while to wear with my normal black leggings, as well as with my Black Milk Clothing leggings and whilst I’m on a massive rainbow love and high, this top would be awesome to wear with my black leggings all casual and such! I wouldn’t be able to wear this for work, it would purely be for when I can’t be arsed to dress up and want to be comfortable. I could imagine itΒ  being a great t-shirt dress to wear on sick days too. πŸ˜›

  • Rocks N Rainbows Ringer Tee – (link)

This is a really cute tee but I wish it was in the UK! I know you can order from the Dolls Kill site and get them sent to the UK, but you know… πŸ˜› ANYWAY! This isn’t technically a rainbow item, but it has a rainbow on it so that counts… Right? πŸ˜› I really love this tee for both work and casual because it’ll just go and work with anything and everything! I especially love the red around the collar and sleeves, it’s a really nice touch and works really well! It also isn’t a bad price either, which I’m always happy with. πŸ˜›

  • Club Exx Dark Rainbow Anodized Boots – (link)

Oh man I just had to add these boots to this list! I know they’re not shouting in your face that they’re rainbow, but fuck me are these sexy boots! I love a good pair of Dr Martens boots and live in them throughout autumn and winter, but these are just something else. To me my Docs are my, “Don’t piss me off…” boots, whereas these would be, “Don’t fuck with me!” boots. You know what I mean? They’d just be awesome to wear throughout the autumn months and possibly spring too.

  • Lazy Oaf Pastel Stripe Rainbow Cardigan

This is a cardigan I have been lusting after for the longest time, but these days it’s a bit of a struggle to find unless you remortgage your house first! It was the original Lazy Oaf rainbow bored cardigan that kick started everyone off on the rainbow cardigan craze and I can honestly understand why! Since then, everyone has been either lusting after that cardigan, the one I’m talking about or any others for that matter! I still want this one and as soon as I find it for a decent price, it WILL be mine! I love wearing cardigans for work, as well as in general and this is such a muted and gorgeous colour that I just need it in my life! HEY if you’re selling one and want a decent price for it, DROP ME A COMMENT ASAP! xD

  • Run & Fly Unisex Rainbow Jumper – (link)

Finally we have another jumper on this list and it’s the last thing I’ll be talking about today. This is actually a unisex product and honestly I LOVE unisex and men’s clothing, it’s always so much more comfortable than women’s. This is such a vintage looking jumper and I feel like it’s something you’d have seen someone wear in the 60’s or 70’s. Or even something from the 90’s that someones picked up in a charity shop. This would be super cozy to wear throughout the autumn and winter months, both at work as well as over the weekends for chilly evenings out. It isn’t cheap at Β£30.00 but I would like to pick it up in the near future.

So those are all my rainbow goodies for my wish list Wednesday! I’m not a massive rainbow magpie, but I do love me some signature rainbow pieces!

I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to Estelle for agreeing to do this rainbow themed collaboration with me! Make sure to head over to her blog to check out what she’s written! I posted her link at the start of this post, but I’ll pop it here too.

Please make sure to go and give Estelle some love, not only is she an amazing and adorable blogger, but she’s also an absolute gem and lovely to talk to. I love that I’ve met her through blogging as she’s definitely one of my favourite bloggers and become a very good blogging friend in such a short period of time.

Anyhoo, I’m off for the day! I hope you all have a lovely day and until next time, take care all!

August Wish List ’18

Well this post is a day later than it usually is! I can’t actually remember the last time a wish list post was late, considering they’re one of the easiest to do! All you do is talk about shit you want to buy. πŸ˜› I did struggle with that a little this month though. I’ve been quite naughty with money of late, but at the same time I’m just having treats I’ve earnt each month really

This month was especially hard though because there isn’t much I want to buy really. Anything I had thought of adding to this list I’d bought before I went to edit the pictures. Mainly stuff for work, which I’ll be posting about later on this month in an August collective haul.

But for now I’ll talk about stuff I’m lusting after and whether I buy them or not, is another thing. πŸ˜›

  • Ohayou! Clothing Persona 5 Futaba Keychain/Charm – (link)

I have spoken time and time again on my blog about Ohayou! Clothing and her amazing designs and pieces that she sells. You can read about some of her pins I own here. When she posted on social media that she had designed Futaba from Persona 5, I was over the moon! As soon as she released the keychain/charm I had to pre order! I cannot wait to see what else she comes out with, especially from the Persona 5 series.

  • Daisy Street Oversized Rainbow Stripe Cardigan – (link)

I don’t even know how I discovered this cardigan, but I did and I’m not going to lie, halfway through writing this post I bought it. πŸ˜› I know I have my Honey Punch rainbow cardigan (which you can see here) but I wanted another one, which is shorter and easier to wear at work and out and about. Plus I’m always wearing that rainbow one, I don’t want to wear it out! I could never have too many rainbow cardigans to be honest with you. πŸ˜›

  • Nendoroid Persona 5 Joker

When this Nendoroid was announced a couple of months ago I was super excited, BUT when it was shown off in colour I AM EVEN MORE EXCITED NOW! This isn’t out for pre order yet and I don’t know if it will this month. I just know I want it and as soon as the Nendoroid store I use release it for pre order, I’ll be doing just that. I have Futaba pre-ordered and I’m so excited for her. I cannot wait for my little Persona 5 family!

  • Pinata Planter – (link)

This is a planter I’ve had my eye on for a while, since May to be honest. I have an aztec llama planter in my bedroom, which I don’t have a plant in to be honest… But that’s because I don’t know WHAT plant to put into it! BUT this pinata planter is so adorable and I’d definitely keep something in it. I’d buy a little aloe plant to pop in as me and Dane really want one. This is something I’d pop on a Christmas or birthday present ideas list.

  • Himouto! Umaru-chan Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 – (link) and (link)

I love my manga and this is one I have wanted to read for YEARS now, but it only came out in the UK late June this year. It’s been out in Japan for years now, ever since the anime started of the same name. I’m naughty and have already ordered both of the volumes and the sooner 3, 4 and 5 grow close to coming out in the UK I’ll be ordering those too. I cannot wait to start reading this manga, I’m so excited.

  • Daisy Street Relaxed Chunky Knit Stripe Cardigan – (link)

This is currently in the sale at ASOS and is either out of stock/sold out or in the odd size that someone is obviously returned. I was close to ordering this but missed out on a size I could have bought. It’s super cheap and is exactly the same as the bright rainbow one in this list, but this one is pastel colours. Estelle over atΒ estellosaurus has this cardigan and has posted it on her Instagram in the past. It’s gorgeous to be honest and is definitely a cardigan I’d like to add to my wardrobe for both in and out of work.

So that’s my wish list for this month! A day late, sadly… But I’m sure you guys won’t mind me being behind for one day. πŸ˜›

This weekend I have decided to do nothing but chill out with Dane, even though we’ve just been so busy doing this and that to really have time to chill out.

What have you guys been doing with your weekends and what do you have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all!

May Wish List ’18

Oh man another month, another wish list! Has to be said, how rotten is the weather?! I’m currently in bed writing this post on a spontaneous day off work (can’t complain at that, eh? :P) and watching the rain out of the window. I’ve had to pop out this morning to have some bloods taken for tests, so now I’m home with a big cup of coffee and listening to a podcast whilst I do blog work!

I need to be good this month to be honest, if anything I’ll probably just buy myself some games and that is it! If I end up being naughty and buying things, then so help me. πŸ˜›

  • Eevee Dangling Tail Enamel Pin by ToasterKiwi – (link)

If there is a new “hobbie” I have taken up since leaving my old job, it’s collecting pin badges/enamel pins! I have a nice handful of them now and wear different ones weekly, sometimes daily at work, as well as weekends off work. I stumbled across this cute little Eevee pin on Etsy during April and I did go to order it, but left out and decided to be good. It would just be so adorable to wear to work in the summer months on my rainbow cardigan (which you can see here).

  • PS4 Detroit: Become Human – (link)

Oh man I have been anticipating this game since it was announced in 2013, 4 years has come and gone and I am SO READY for this game now! I’ve always loved David Cage’s/Quantic Dream games so this is just another one I’ll know I’ll adore. It’s set in Detroit (obviously) and is about 3 characters, all robots with different stories. It reminds me of Heavy Rain in that aspect that you play as multiple people. I’m not 100% sure if all their stories link, but I have a pretty good feeling they do. The games out late May so I’ll be pre ordering it closer to its release date. Smyths Toys are amazing with game pre orders and you save Β£5 if you order quickly enough, which of course I’ll be doing! I know there’s a demo for this at the moment but I don’t want to play it, I want a surprise when the game comes out. I’ve watched a little bit of people playing the demo and let’s just say, that was enough for me.

  • Vans X Lazy Oaf Old Skool Platform Shoes – (link)

BE STILL MY BEATING HEART! I want these SO MUCH right now but I have to be a good girl and save money. I love a good pair of Vans and I find they last so well. If it wasn’t for the fact one of my oldest pairs of Vans (I’ve owned them for 12 years!) are covered in mud and in a shed at my mom’s, I would still wear them. I’ve wanted a platform pair of Vans for a while now and these are pretty kawaii and adorable to wear with jeans, and even skirts and dresses. They’re Lazy Oaf so I knew they wouldn’t be cheap BUT they’re also not badly priced either, in my opinion. I would like to buy a pair before they sell out. I’d wear them at work every now and then too if the time was right. I’ll see how I feel when I’m paid and if I’ll have any spare cash. There’s only one place I can actually find them in my size right now, which is such a shame. They sold out within a few days Vans, Lazy Oaf and even ASOS.

  • EMP Star Wars Collar Jyn Dress – (link)

I remember featuring this on one of my wish lists last year (August to be exact and you can read it here if you do so wish) and I never did buy it. I still do, as I would love to wear it for work! It’s the perfect length, would be great to wear in all seasons, as during the colder months you could wear a long sleeved top underneath it, which is probably what I’d do all the time. It has a hood on it, which is something different too and would be really funky to wear on evenings out with friends. When the hood isn’t worn up it has a sort of cowl neck, which I really like. This does feel like more of a dress for winter, but I’d love it for work. πŸ˜›

  • Monki Rainbow Ribbed Top – (link)

Recently I discovered Katystraub on Instagram and I am in love with her feed! She’s so kawaii and adorable. I’d noticed her wearing some rainbow striped t-shirts and loved it, so when I found out they were from Monki I had a good nose on the website. Sadly theΒ  ones she had were sold out but since then I’ve been keeping my eye on the website for anymore t-shirts like that to come out. I found this one the website a few days ago and I’m tempted to order it for work now to wear with skirts and trousers! When I’ve written this post I’m going to have a good nose on the website. πŸ˜›

  • Nails Inc Self-Made Mermaid Nail Polish Duo – (link)

I remember wanting this nail polish duo when it first came out, but obviously I never picked it up. I’ve been browsing eBay for second hand ones for a while and I’ve found quite a few for sale, BUT ALWAYS MISSED OUT ON BUYING THE DUO CHEAP! So annoying! I doubt I’ll buy it anytime soon, but I would love to pick it up in the future for sure. I forgot how much I love Nails Inc polishes and the duos are pretty good to be honest. The only thing that is putting me off buying the duo at full price is I don’t feel like the Nails Inc polishes last as long as they should for how much they cost.

So there you have it, my wish list post for May! I would love to buy everyone off of it, but I need to be good! It can be so hard though, you know? πŸ˜›

What items are you wishing for this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re ready for the long weekend. πŸ˜›

December Wish List ’17

Not going to lie, I didn’t know whether to make this wish list a Christmas with list or just a casual monthly one. Let’s just say I went for the latter! It’ll be Christmas Eve where I do my Christmas wish list, with a funny twist, so please keep your eyes peeled for that in the next couple of weeks.

But for now I decided to focus on thingsΒ  that I’d love to buy, but probably won’t (well maybe one or two things off of the list… ESSENTIALS YO!) due to Christmas being right around the corner. My wish list is a bit lame this month, but it’ll do the job! πŸ˜›

  • Carmex Skinny Dip Limited Edition Unicorn Sugar Plum – Β£2.59 (link)

I’ve always had a soft spot for Carmex but I always forget about how much I like it until I buy a new tube or jar. I recently bought the cherry flavour for my holiday a few months back and fell in love all over again. I saw online that Skinny Dip were teaming up with Carmex again to bring out not only a unicorn themed jar, BUT also a sugar plum scent/flavour! As soon as I see this in the shops I’ll be picking it up! I need myself a festive lip balm to apply. As sad as it sounds, I’ll probably pick up a couple to stock up! I love sugar plum scented things. πŸ˜›

  • A Polar Bear in Love Vol. 1 – Β£8.91 (link)

I recently heard about this manga from Akidearest, a YouTuber who talks about a lot of Japanese related stuff on her channel. Like myself and many other people, she also does a monthly favourites and this was one of the items from it! It’s about a polar bear who is in love with a baby seal, but the baby seal is just constantly scared that the polar bear will eat it. So it’s constantly running away! The polar bear doesn’t know though how scared the seal is so whenever he attempts to run away, the polar bear just goes after it for cuddles and affection. It just sounds adorable and from the previews I’ve seen, it also looks hilarious! I doubt very much I’ll be getting this for Christmas, so as soon as Christmas and my birthday have been, I’ll be ordering this.

  • Elodie the Unicorn Humidifier – Β£39.99 (link)

This is an item I wanted to pick up when it was a Kickstarter! I was going to get the full deal of the humidifier, ramen bowl, mug and planter. I was ordering it and getting myself psyched for it, when I found out it would cost Β£20 for shipping and that didn’t include any import I might be charged. Gutted, I left it. I’m glad I did however because now Firefox, a UK Based online store are stocking this! I’ll definitely be picking this up in the future to use around the house. I want to put essential oils in, lavender before and during bed time, and eucalyptus when me and Dane feel poorly. I know it’s not cheap at Β£40, but I want it and need it in my life and in my home! πŸ˜›

  • Romwe Block Striped Heart Patch Sweater Coat – Β£18.33 (link)

When Lazy Oaf brought out their BORING rainbow cardigan, the blogging world went crazy. YouTubers were buying it and then everyone else was until it was sold out and not really available anymore. I really wanted the cardigan but over Β£50 for a cardigan? Oh hell no. As bad as it sounds I scoured Depop and eBay for fakes, but as of yet I just haven’t found one I like the look of, or trust to actually look ANYTHING like the picture. So I left it. Then I recently saw Jess over at iamfoxxtailz talk about this cardigan and show it off in a lookbook (you can read her post about this cardigan here). I thought, “Urgh someone else lucky enough to have and afford the Lazy Oaf one…” But how wrong I was! In actual fact the one she was wearing was from Romwe! I looked for a solid week on the website for it and had zero luck, then whilst writing this post I looked again and eventually found it, IN THE COATS SECTION! This is not a bloody coat!!! I went to order it to be honest but it was saying it would cost me Β£6.00 postage, which sucks to be honest. Not only that but it’s one size, it could be too small for me, which would suck. I want the oversized look in this cardigan so I can snuggle into it at work, at home and when out and about. I’m tempted to just treat myself to the Lazy Oaf one, but fuck it’s so expensive. That’s a food shop to me. πŸ˜› We shall see what happens!

  • Inc.redible Jelly Shot in shade Watch Me Go – Β£8.00 (link)

I had a feeling that Nails Inc were going to come out with a lipstick line when they had two lip products in the Beauty of Dreams gift set (which you can read about here) and I couldn’t find them ANYWHERE online! It was just a sneak peak of what was to come as a week or two ago Nails Inc came out with Inc.redible, a new beauty brand that so far has loads of amazing lip products, including these jelly shot tinted lip balms. I really want to get my hands on the green one as it looks amazing both in the tube, as well as on the lips. It leaves a light pink stain which I’m always down with. I’ll definitely be picking this up as soon as I can!

  • Imperial Leather Foamburst Unicorn Marshmallow Shower Gel – Β£2.00 (link)

This is something I wouldn’t mind picking up to say I tried it and I probably will when I go into Boots next! I’ve used the foamburst shower gel before and they are amazing. They always remind me of when I was a kid when they first came out. Me and my mom both loved these and still do! I’m pretty sure she still buys the vanilla scented ones. Me and Dane have both used the marshmallow hand wash, shower gel and bubble bath by Imperial Leather so I’m pretty sure this marshmallow foamburst will be lovely to use on cold weekend mornings. For Β£2.00 I don’t mind giving this a go. πŸ˜›

So that was my wish list for December! I’m pretty sure there is more stuff I could have added to the list, but my mind has gone blank to be honest.

As I said as well, I will have a Christmas wish list up on Christmas Eve, which will be fun so keep eyes peeled for that! Anything I couldn’t add to this list will definitely be on that one!

What items do you have on your wish lists this month? Both in general and for Christmas, I want to know!

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