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! πŸ˜›

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 Β£5 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 Β£50 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? πŸ˜› 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. πŸ˜›

  • 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… 😦 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. πŸ˜› 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! πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ˜›

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!

Christmas Presents!

Merry Christmas one and all! Even if it is a tad too late to say now… Everyone is saying, “Happy New Year!” at the moment, aren’t they?

ANYWAY! Christmas has come and gone once again, and as you can tell from my absence the past couple of days, I’ve had a really good one this year. I spent the morning over at my boyfriend’s house with his family, which was lovely. We hadn’t done this yet, so it really did make a nice change. Then in the evening we came over to my house, which was super chilled out. Perfect Christmas!

I worked Boxing Day, which sucked but it was a laugh with my colleagues and we all talked about our Christmas Day’s, and what we got for Christmas.

Tonight I’ll be sharing what goodies I received for Christmas! As I’ve stated the past couple of years when writing these sorts of posts, I am in no way bragging, or showing off about what I received for Christmas. I love reading posts like this (because I’m a nosey cow!) so I always imagine people would enjoy reading mine too… Especially anyone who loves foxes, and anime/manga related goodies, as that’s what the majority was which I received.

I also want to apologise for crappy pictures. These were taken late at night, I was shattered after a busy day, and I knew if I didn’t get something taken, I would have nothing to write about now as I’ve literally not had any time.

So, here are my presents!

As you can see I received a lot of gifts, and this isn’t even all of it! Nope, there is more…

As I mentioned in my holiday haul post here my dad bought me this gorgeous Michael Kors Riley handbag! It has been my go to bag ever since the holiday, and I can see it being used pretty much forever now… I love using it for work as it’s so light to carry and it fits the right amount of items in.

One of the best presents I received for Christmas was nightwear. I haven’t received any for quite some time, so when my boyfriends parents bought me this fox slipper socks, and my boyfriend bought me these woodland animal pajamas, I was thrilled! The pajamas he bought me are so damn comfortable as well! I wore them from Christmas Day to this morning, and I wish I could be wearing them now. I love long-sleeved pajama tops!

My boyfriends family were really generous and lovely this year with their presents to me. My boyfriends brother and his girlfriend bought me Lush, and although my boyfriend states that they didn’t know which gift set I was after, they bought me the exact one! I’d eyed this set up only a week ago in Lush, due to it coming with Twilight Shower Gel, which is a limited edition product, and only comes out in the Lush Kitchen. I haven’t used it yet, but I can’t wait to.

My boyfriends parents bought me various little bits and pieces, from the fox slippers mentioned earlier, a cute little candle with squirrels on it, and this beautiful fox pillow. I snuggled it all morning after opening it, and it now sits lovely on my bed… I’m leaning against it right now, and it’s so fluffy and comfortable! They also bought me some Pandora, but I’m saving that until last.

My families gifts were lovely, and to the point. Alongside all these my mom also bought me a navy dressing gown, but I never got a picture of it, sorry. One of the nicest presents she bought me was this gorgeous fox mug! I had told her I wanted it from Avon for a while, and she offered to pick it up for me. Alas she told me it had sold out, and had secretly hidden it for Christmas. She also bought me a cute little fox purse. I’m unsure what I’ll use it for at the moment, but I’m sure I’ll soon find a use for it. The hair towels were a complete surprise, and I was keen on getting some new ones, so these pink ones will do just the job! I love using these towels to dry my long hair, they really do the trick. As my mom did last year, she has done it again and bought me a new face powder, only this time on by Laura Geller. So far since getting it a few days ago I’ve been using it and it’s lovely, I cannot complain.

My brother is great when it comes to presents, he always gets good ones, and usually he’ll get perfume. He never knows what perfume I’m after (because I don’t really talk to him about that sort of thing) but he always seems to get me something that I think, “Ooo that’s nice… Meh too much money…” and it makes me smile. This year he has bought me the latest scent by Marc Jacobs, Decadence. I can’t even describe the scent for this. It’s pretty unique, and reminds me of something that Thierry Mugler would come out with. The bottle for this does astonish me too, with its little handbag design. This came in a gift set with a shower gel, which I used on Boxing Day. I intend to wear this on my birthday.

My boyfriend bought me so much stuff! Like SO much stuff! But in return, I also bought him lots of things. The majority of what he seemed to pick up for me, they were fox themed. He’s never bought me this much fox related stuff before, which surprised me. He bought me a fox umbrella, and a fox car air freshener from a company called The Fox Project, a charity which helps foxes that have been hurt, and need urgent treatment. Along these he also bought me two pairs of fox socks from M&S, as well as a fox mug. Said mug now lives at his house, as I’m always pestering him for tea and coffee.

Alongside fox related items he had a habit for buying me lots of books this year (as I did for him too), and Umaru-Chan related goodies. He bought me two of these later items, one being a t-shirt, the other this adorable little notebook! I’ll be using that for work as a blog writing book. As I already mentioned, he bought me books, four in total. Three being books 10, 11, and 12 from the Nana manga, and one being the Pewdiepie book, This Book Loves You. I intend to go through it on my day off Wednesday.

As well as that he also picked up this cute little polar bear, as something I can snuggle when at his house, a Simon’s Cat calendar for next year, and a little Yankee Candle Christmas Eve votive candle.

He also bought me a special Pandora charm, but I’ll be going into more detail about that shortly.

These were two of the best presents I received from my boyfriend. I knew I was getting the Umaru-Chan Nendoroid, but the Baymax Pop! Vinyl was a complete surprise to me! I had told him I wanted it, but I didn’t know if he would buy him for me or not.

I am a massive fan of Big Hero 6, and Baymax really melted my heart. I can’t even remember how many times I cried when we went to watch Big Hero 6… It was a lot though! I’m not a huge Pop! Vinyl fan, I think the majority of the figures they release and sell look crap with how their paint work has been done. HOWEVER some of them do look amazing, and Baymax is one of these. He’s pearlescent in colour, and is bigger than normal Pop! Vinyl’s, which I actually really like.

As for Umaru-Chan she’s a gorgeous little figure, and one I fast fell in love with. I have spoken on my blog before about how much I love the anime that she originates from, and so when I got into the anime, my boyfriend knew he had to order the figure for me. I want to open her so badly, but she’s just too nice to open her. Instead I shall just gaze at her from afar and one day-dream of opening her.

Finally we have the two Pandora charms I was given this year. One from my boyfriend, and one from his parents. His parents gave me the little puppy charm (on the right) that is wearing a cute little red Father Christmas hat. It is such a little cute charm, and I wish I could have got some better pictures of it, but alas I couldn’t at the time. He’s sitting down, with his tongue sticking out. It’s a real cutie to add to my bracelet.

The charm my boyfriend bought for me is the fox (on the left) and it isn’t actually an official Pandora… But I don’t care about that! Pandora are taking too long to release a fox charm (you watch, they will now!) so when my boyfriend saw this one for sale on The Fox Project he snapped it up. It’s a cute little fox lying on a log, and I imagine trying to have a snooze. I love this charm so much because it really does stand out on the whole bracelet.

So that’s all… Wait… That isn’t ALL my presents? Is it?

My mom bought me a Kitchen Aid for Christmas. You know, like the ones they use on The Great British Bake Off? YES ONE OF THOSE! I was gobsmacked when I opened a massive present to not only see this, but a ceramic bowl, as well as a five piece kitchen/culinary set to use with the mixer as well. For weeks my mom has been lying about this massive box in the living room, saying it was something my brother had ordered… But it never budged. Until I came home for Christmas, and it had moved and was covered in wrapping paper. I am so excited to use it, even though I’m not 100% sure when I will yet. When I do, I’m sure I’ll have some sort of blog post about it.

Now, that IS all I received for Christmas. Although I did receive a wash set from my sister-in-law, and nephews, and I am yet to see what friends have bought me.

But yes, that is all my presents from Christmas ’15! What did you get for Christmas? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below, or even link me to your blog post about it if you’re a blogger.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you have a nice rest after Christmas. I would love one, that’s for sure. πŸ˜›
