June Wish List ’19

It’s June! The month of lots of spending due to mine and Dane’s anniversaries! However whilst this year won’t be completely different, it will be all the same. We won’t be spending as much money on one another as we usually do due to the fact we have booked Japan so we’re saving up to spend monies over there!

This means I would like to go on some spending bans as I would much prefer to have monies for when I go to Japan so I don’t feel like I can’t enjoy myself, you know?

Granted spending ban or not, I will always post my monthly wish list posts, as I love doing them so much! I can imagine this month being really hard to do as I can’t think of anything I actually want apart from maybe the odd item or two… We shall see anyway! ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Converse x Feng Chen Wang ERX 260 Mid (link)

I really want these high top trainers… Like really badly want them! I think if it wasn’t for booking Japan last week, I’d have probably ordered these by now. I would especially love to have these for Japan though as they look amazing! Maybe I’ll treat myself to them, or even hint to Dane for them as a partial anniversary present… ๐Ÿ˜› I’m going to Manchester next week so I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for any stores that MIGHT be selling there – although they do just look to be an online exclusive with Converse…

  • Persona Q2 on Nintendo 3DS (link)

I am beyond excited for this game to come out! Not going to lie, I haven’t actually played Persona Q, the first in this game series. I don’t know if I really need to play that one to enable me to play Q2 but either way I don’t care. The Persona 5 gang are in this game and that in itself is enough for me. From what I’ve seen and read, this is a dungeon crawler based game where you can pick a team from any of the Persona games (3, 4 or 5) and play the game pretty much. This comes out today – which I’m really excited for!

  • Renegade Bubble Tea Board Game (link)

This was a game I discovered at UK Games Expo last weekend and one that I regret not picking up in all fairness with you. I regret not buying this so badly and even regret not sitting down to play the game. We wanted to make sure we looked everywhere before buying things, hence why I didn’t end up getting it in the end. I was shown how it played however and it looks like a great little party game for all ages! As a bubble tea fan this is such a novelty game too and I just feel like it would be a cute game to own. As soon as I can, I’ll be picking up this game to add to mine and Dane’s growing collection.

  • Persona 5 Morgana Pop! Vinyl Figure (link)

I know I’ve mentioned this Pop on my blog before within my monthly wish list, but I’m mentioning it again this month because it’s ACTUALLY meant to be coming out this month! I’ll be shocked if it actually does and will hold my breath until that day comes. I really want this figure though. It’s adorable and I know it’ll be gorgeous to have on my fireplace in the living room, or maybe even my manga bookshelf.

  • Ines Dreamer Shop D20 Pink Choker Necklace (link)

I’ve been after a new choker for a while now, as whilst I do love wearing my fox necklace that my friend Sophie bought me I do like something a little geeky instead sometimes. I love the 90’s tattoo chokers and have done since they came out back in the day. Since getting into D&D I’ve been after a choker style necklace with a D20 on it. I haven’t been able to find one for a while, but FINALLY I found one on Etsy recently and after I’ve written this post, I plan to order it. ๐Ÿ˜› There’s one left so why not!

  • Illustrator Jake Eeveelutions Sweater from Kickstarter (link)

This item isn’t actually out to buy and was part of a Kickstarter recently held by Illustrator Jake, who I’ve mentioned on my blog before in a review of their Retsuko pin badge (which I’ll link here). I of course backed it and opted for the Eeveelutions sweater design. I’m actually really excited for the design to come out and be posted to me, especially if it’s this month! Sweater weather in the summer isn’t exactly a done thing here in the UK, but it bloody can be if it’s cool enough. ๐Ÿ˜›

So those are my wish list items for this month! In all honesty I spent quite a bit of money at the UK Games Expo over the weekend so I doubt very much I’ll buy much from this list this month.

In all honesty I do want to do my spending ban. Every time I go to buy an item I know I could get when in Japan, I’m going to just leave it etc.

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

Until next time all, take care and I hope you’ve had a lovely week so far. ๐Ÿ™‚

Wish List Wednesday – Killstar

If there is one brand I have really come to love over the past couple of months, it’s definitely Killstar! I’ve loved Killstar for almost 3 years in all fairness but I feel like only of late have I made more purchases with them. Throughout 2019 I’d love to buy even more pieces from them as I love wearing the two dresses I picked up in the sales (which you can see here) for both work, as well as in my own time after work and for my weekends off. ๐Ÿ˜€

For now though I’m going to show you guys what items Id love to pick up from Killstar soon! ๐Ÿ˜€ There will be a mixture of items from the website, obviously including clothing as well as footwear and home.

  • Wednesday Addams Dress – (link)

This is a dress I’ve wanted for years and STILL I haven’t bought it yet, which sucks. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I actually bought it second hand off of someone via Depop, but I ended up being scammed. Meh. So I am still on the hunt for this dress! When my size is back in stock on the store I may just take the plunge and order it. I’m sick of not having it now and would love to wear it for work, as well as meals out with Dane and friends! Can never say no to looking like Wednesdays Addams. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Hellda Knit Dress – (link)

This is a dress I wanted for a while like the Wednesday Addams dress, but the more I saw it in my wish list on the website, the less I wanted it. I thought it wouldn’t suit me, or that I already had something like it, which I doubt would be the case. So when I saw the gorgeous TheFodFairy over on YouTube showing it off on one of her latest videos, I KNEW I had to re add it to my wish list! I really want it for work in the colder weather! I do have a knitted dress just like this one, but I’ve owned it for over 5 years now so I need a much needed replacement.

  • Luna High Tops – (link)

If there is one thing I DON’T NEED it’s shoes. I would love a new pair of high tops as my white DC ones have seen better days and I’ve owned them for about 10 years now. How they’re still in one piece I don’t know! I’m not quite sure what it is I love about these high tops, other than everything! I feel like they’re an awesome cross between Vans and Dr Martens, which are two of my favourite brands. I’d love some of these to wear with dresses as well as skinny fit black jeans.

  • Starmap Comforter Set – (link)

I haven’t long ago discovered that this bed set exists and now I have, I REALLY want it! I have seen the price though and it hurts my soul just a little. ๐Ÿ˜› It’s definitely a set I’m going to keep my eye on though as I really love the look of it. It’s called a comforter set because it’s really soft and fluffy, which would make it perfect for during the cold winter months! I wish it wasn’t like this though all the same, as I’d want to use this bedding all year around, of course this wouldn’t be doable during the warm summer months. As I mentioned, this isn’t cheap and although I love Killstar, ยฃ90 for some bedding is rather daft…

  • Wonka Knit Sweater – (link)

Finally we have another piece of clothing and alas the last thing on this wish list! The first item I bought from Killstar was a striped jumper, which I still own and wear to this day! It’s actually the jumper I wore in the photos that TV Trev took of me (which you can see in this post). It’s a nice oversized jumper that can be worn on its own with thick leggings or some jeans. I love to wear them when relaxing with friends as well as my weekends off work. They have quite a few different colour schemes for this jumper, but I rather love the look of the purple one to be fair! I’d love to get all the different colour versions though. ๐Ÿ˜›

If there is ever a time where you finally decide to take the plunge and make a first order with Killstar, then feel free to use my unique code and save yourself 5% off your first order! ๐Ÿ˜€

What do you think of the brand Killstar and the items I’ve popped onto my wish list this evening? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

I do apologise if this is a rather short post, but I wanted to get a wish list Wednesday post up today and the first brand that came to mind to feature on here today were Killstar.

I know my blog has been a bit on the bland side lately, I’ll be talking about this on Saturday. ๐Ÿ™‚

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

May 2018 Collective Haul!

I don’t know how managed to collect so much stuff over the course of a month but I have! I haven’t written a haul post in forever so I thought it would be nice to do one today. I just feel like I’m accumulated loads of goodies, some of them are gifts as well which I’ll mention when I get to them. I thought it might be a good idea to write about all the shit (hahaha :P) I’ve purchased recently. I love reading haul posts, especially collectives ones so I thought you guys might have liked to read this too! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Barbie x Missguided American Flag Joggers.

Back in May Dane dug out all the McDonald’s Monopoly vouchers he’d gained and he had LOADS of Missguided ones at 30% off. I decided to take the plunge and have a look on the website for what I could treat myself to. Now, Missguided really isn’t my sort of style. I looked for ages for a dress (or two) that I could pick up for work but they’re all going out bodycon style and urgh… I’m too fat and old for that shit now. ๐Ÿ˜› I went for a look at the Barbie pieces to see what they might have cute over there and I found these joggers. On my weekends I’m really becoming a joggers/leggings and a geeky top sort of gal when it comes to popping out for errands. I picked these up in a size bigger than I am as I wanted them baggy… I should have ordered my size in all honesty. These are HUGE but at the same time it means they’re really comfortable.

  • Primark Spider-Man T-Shirt.

This t-shirt was bought on a whim after venturing into my nearest Primark store. I’m sucker for a new t-shirt and I especially am when it comes down to anything geek and nerd related! I picked up this t-shirt because of how simplistic and yet adorable it is! I don’t like that the patch is on the side that I wear my braid on, as it means my hair gets caught on it sometimes. I’ll live though! This was only ยฃ8.00, which I find a bargain, even for Primark!

  • Black Milk Clothing Midnight Owl Skater Dress.

This was a purchase that I am so happy I made! I love Black Milk Clothing and I especially love their skater dresses. They always make me feel so pretty no matter what and I always get complimented on them. I picked this one up on a whim from eBay, in a size bigger than I usually get, which actually fits really nicely! It’s safe to say, it’s going to now be my go to dress for work, in general and even for special occasions. This only cost me ยฃ25, which included P&P. To buy from Black Milk Clothing it would have cost me $85.00 AUS, which converts to ยฃ48.42, that wouldn’t even include how much I’d have to pay to ship it to the country and possible charges on top of that as well. URGH, buying through eBay really is the best way! I plan to wear this to a friends wedding in July and I wore it for mine and Dane’s anniversary too. I’m after some more Black Milk Clothing skater dresses now, I honestly can’t get enough of them. I’m scouring eBay daily now for whenever new items are added. I have my eye on a few, but we’ll see what happens.

  • ASOS Lady & The Tramp Sweater.

This was a random purchase on Depop that I made recently, which was also my first Depop purchase! I remember when the matching sweater and joggers of this came out on ASOS 4 years ago and being a Lady & The Tramp fan, I picked up the joggers (which I still own and wear!). I went to order the sweater a week later, but it was sold out. Zoella had worn this set and everyone went mad for it, yuck (I’m not a Zoella fan…). ANYWAY after years of finding this sweater online and it selling out, I finally took the plunge and bought it! It only cost me ยฃ13 with P&P which I was so chuffed about! The original cost of this was ยฃ30 so I was right to wait 4 years for it… I guess. ๐Ÿ˜› It’s weird that I found my wish list post back from July 2014 where I was talking about how I wanted this sweater! I feel so fucking old right now.

  • Snot Girl Volume 2.

I mentioned this comic book series recently on both my May favourites as well as on my June wish list. I remember picking up this comic book a year ago after a YouTuber raving about it. I didn’t realise the story line was going to go the way it has and due to that I love it so much and if I felt that way after reading volume 1 then oh my fucking God this volume is crazy! I won’t say anything in case I give anything away, but this comic book has gone from what I thought was going to just be about a blogger and her drama, but it’s fast turned into some sort of horror/thriller style story based around a blogger. It is so damn good and I would love to see this go into a TV series of a film in the future like how Scott Pilgrim did.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Volume 6.

I feel like I’ve spoken WAY TOO MUCH about this series lately and it’s kind of making me sick now to keep talking about it. ๐Ÿ˜› This is a manga series I love and adore and have bought as soon as it’s come out so far for all 6 volumes. I pre ordered this just before it came out and read it as soon as I got it. This is a series I really love and I especially love how now I’m further than the anime series is. I’ve not quite finished reading it yet, but I will do VERY soon. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life Volume 2.

Another manga I have spoken WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT recently, but can you blame me? It’s amazing and adorable! Also at the same time it’s very strange how the story of Kanna and her friend Saikawa is and this shows more throughout this series. If you love Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid the anime version then you NEED to read this manga series at least! I know so many people who love Kanna, and I can’t blame them really. She’s so adorable and innocent.

These items below are now all gift related!

I recently had some issues with Lush Santa’s Christmas shower cream. It’s a bright red colour and obviously due to what they’ve added to the product to make it this colour, it’s stained various parts of my bath, as well as my shower puff and even my armpits (only for the day though). So I wrote to them on Twitter to complain. They were really helpful and offered to give me my money back, but that meant sending the product back and 1. I couldn’t be arsed to do that and 2. Why the fuck should I have to send it back?! What are they going to do with it that I can’t do myself? AKA throw it away.

They were lovely enough to also offer to sent me some goodies as a sorry, which I opted for. They asked me to list them some products I either love or would like to try. They were nice enough to send me one of my favourite products, as well as new one I’ve been wanting to try!

I just want to quickly add here that I know a lot of shit has been going on and happening around Lush lately due to their recent and disgraceful campaign. I don’t agree with it whatsoever. I also want to add I haven’t bought from Lush since I picked up the Santa’s Christmas shower creams just after Boxing Day. I need to really address my thoughts and feelings on Lush lately, but we will save that for another post!

  • ย Lush Supertramp Bubble Bar.

This is the product I mentioned being one of my favourites. I remember back in 2015 when me and Dane went to London and it was the first time I’d been to the Oxford Street Lush! This was an exclusive to the store at the time and as I loved Tramp shower gel back in the day, I knew I had to give the bubble bar a go too! The bubble bar to me is better as it isn’t as strong and it’s one I love to use when I’m feeling under the weather with hayfever or a cold. It really clears my head. I’m so happy Lush sent me this and even happier that if and when I need to buy another bar of it, I now can on their website.

  • Lush Oaty Creamy Dreamy Oat Milk Shower Cream.

This was the product I wanted to try as I haven’t really heard much about it, but when seeing how it’s made in the past it looks really moisturising! It smells amazing to be honest and really surprised me. I was expecting creamy oat and vanilla scents, but this smells heavily of lavender, which is in fact one of the ingredients. If you love lavender, you’ll love this! It’s not a thick shower cream like Santa’s Christmas and you only need a little of this for it to go a long way. This is definitely a shower cream you’d ideally want to use before bed, but I love using it in the morning on my days off as the scent does perk me up. I’ll probably buy a big bottle of this for my mom at Christmas as she loves her lavender scents.

This wasn’t a gift from Lush but actually from my manager at work! It’s belated birthday present and I am oh so grateful for it! She gave it me just before I broke up for my week off work and I used it the next morning before going to work.

  • Lush Plum Rain Shower Gel.

This is a shower gel from Lush I’ve wanted to try since it came out, but I just never have. When my manager gave it to me I was so happy and excited! So much so I opened it up for a sniff at my desk. ๐Ÿ˜› She had heard of me saying how much I love Snow Fairy and popped into the store to try and get one, but alas being a Christmas product they didn’t have it in stock. I can only assume that the staff recommended Plum Rain to her and if so, they did a good job! Then again, what else could they really recommend?! Their shower gel selection is so shit these days! I mean come on Lush, why did you discontinue The Comforter?! Surely it wasn’t doing poor in sales… I find it hard to believe myself… ANYWAY this has a gorgeous fresh scent and it actually reminds me of Christmas due to The Body Shop’s old sugar plum shower gel! This doesn’t smell as sweet as theirs though. Either way I love using this in the mornings as the scent really does wake you up!

So that was my collective haul! I know it doesn’t seem/look like a lot but bloody hell I’ve been spend happy lately! I was also going to mention mine and Dane’s anniversary presents but I’ll save that for a separate post.

I was also going to mention some of the pin badges I’ve bought from Ohayou! Clothing through their Kickstarter and Patreon but I’m going to save those for a separate post as well as I think they deserve some love all on their own! ๐Ÿ˜€ Not only will I be talking about pin badges but I intend to talk about all of their items I own so far, as well as items I’d like to own! Stay tuned for that, it’s been a post I’ve been meaning to write for the longest time!

What have you guys been buying the past month or so? Make sure to let me know down in the comments!

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

October Wish List

I know I say this every month, but I just can’t believe how quickly this year has flown. It’s now October and a whole month since I finished university. My favourite month has passed, and it’s now only a couple of months until Christmas and New Year… And also until I turn 26. Oh woe!

I really need to watch my money this month, but at the same time October is appearing to be the month where everything I want to buy is coming out, so we shall see how that goes… But for now, here are the items I am lusting after this month!

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Masochist.

I have been lusting after one of Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks ever since they came out, but I have never splashed out and made a purchase because I’ve never really settled on one shade that I wanted. However now Jeffree has brought out the shade masochist I know I want this in my life. It’s a gorgeous raspberry pink shade, which is totally me and one I would rock throughout autumn and winter, maybe even spring and summer evenings. This has been available to buy since the end of September, but I’m going to wait for Cocktail Cosmetics to bring this out for sale on their website. It just works out cheaper all round. I know my mom really wants to try this shade too, so we’ll both be giving it a go when I buy it.

  • Disney Store Star Wars Sweatshirt.

I saw this recently on the Disney Store website and I really liked it, but soon forgot about it. Recently browsing around the website for some cute things I stumbled upon it again and it’s something I would love to pick up when the weather gets really chilly and I just want something to snuggle into whilst lounging around the house. I’m not the biggest Star wars fan in the world, but since a young age I was brought up to love Star Wars and I still do to this day.

  • Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer.

This is now officially out, and MINE! It came out yesterday and I made sure to pre-order it so that I would have it on my doorstep for when I got home from work. I remember this being announced at E3 and I was so excited for a new Pokemon game to be announced, but it wasn’t. This however made up for it. I love the Animal Crossing games and own them all apart from the wii version. I wanted to pick up the limited edition 3DS XL to go alongside this game but alas, I’m poor. I have however picked up the NFC Reader/Writer so I can scan the gorgeous new Animal Crossing amiibo Cards. I’ve also ordered those too and I can see them becoming an addiction… Which isn’t good when they cost ยฃ4.99 for one pack. So I ordered three packs for under ยฃ13, which isn’t bad. It’s a real treat and I haven’t been playing my 2DS lately so I’m excited to start if back up. My whole weekend will be spent playing this game me thinks.

  • Iron Fist Bat Royalty Dress.

I love a good Iron Fist dress, and as my holiday is coming up, as well as Christmas party season I do have my eyes peeled on picking up something new… I think I may have found it. This is a gorgeous black dress, with a sheer burnt out fabric that shows off some gorgeous gothic and Halloween style patterns of bats, moons, stars, and some other patterns. This isn’t cheap though, so I’m going to keep my eyes on the price to hopefully drop. I can’t find this for sale on Iron Fist’s website and have actually found this through a seller on eBay. I’d rock this with some tights, boots, and a snuggly jumper, or my spiked biker jacket.

  • Yankee Candle in Snowflake Cookie.

If there is a season of Yankee Candle’s I love, it’s definitely the Christmas ones. They just remind me of Christmas, as well as other things, and to me they just smell the best. I still have just under half of a jar of Candy Cane Lane left, which I refuse to use again until I get another jarย  to burn. I just can’t wait to be able to pick up another Christmas candle to burn. I’m super excited.

  • Shopaholic To The Rescue by Sophie Kinsella.

I LOVE the Shopaholic series so when I read that the next installment would be out only a year after the last, I was so happy! I’ll probably pick this up before I go on holiday so I can read it whilst I’m there and this isn’t out until the end of the month anyway, so I have plenty of time to pick it up. The way the previous book ended made me so mad as it meant that I would need to wait for the next book to come out, which I thought would be in another couple of years. I’ll be buying the hardback again, as I just can’t wait until March for the paperback.

  • Skinnydip London Glitter Unicorn iPhone 6 Case.

I’ve been eyeing this phone case up since I saw it being spoken about over on Becky’s blog Milk Bubble Tea. It’s such a cute and beautiful phone case, and one that is selling out FAST. It has unicorns on it and water glitter inside so when you move the phone, the glitter moves too! These styles of phone cases are popping up everywhere at the moment, and now I’m lusting after one myself. This isn’t the cheapest phone case ever, but I have a discount code I can use on it, so I may just order it now it’s back in stock! I don’t know if I can resist this for too much longer.

So that is my wish list this month! I really don’t need to buy anything off of it as I’m so skint at the moment, and need to really start saving up for my holiday, as well as to try and get a deposit down on a house. Oh the joys of being an adult, eh?

What’s on your wish lists this month readers? Please let me know in the comments down below!

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