Bikini Wish List Wednesday

I know I usually schedule posts for every 3 days (unless like recently where I was a lazy bitch and left a new post for a week…) BUT I wanted to do another wish list Wednesday post before I go on holiday.

I’m in desperate need of a new bikini and whilst the Iron Fist one I currently own is amazing and does a great job when wearing it, I would like something new that reflects my personality… I know that sounds weird, but hear me out throughout the post as to what I mean!

I also wanted a new bikini because whilst I loved and felt comfortable wearing my Iron Fist one on holiday, I didn’t feel that it stood out and I really want one that will! Especially when going down to the beach, which I hope to do more of on this holiday.

There is a sort of theme around all the bikinis I’ve added to this list too, I am aware of that after putting the image together. 😛 Enjoy the wish list!

  • Boux Avenue Cabaret Triangle Bikini Top – £28.00 (link)
  • Boux Avenue Cabaret Bikini Briefs – £16.00 (link)

Sadly (as you can see) this bikini isn’t cheap. It’s actually quite expensive for what it looks like from the pictures, BUT IT’S PURPLE AND LOOKS ALMOST HOLOGRAPHIC! I also don’t see many bikini tops that allow you to buy your bra size as apposed to UK dress size or S, M or L. This would be a nice bikini to wear around the pool at my house, as apposed to the beach, but it would also be really nice to wear with a pair of shorts and a sheer jumper. It is expensive though for what it is and due to this I’d want to not only have a look at in person in one of their stores, but I’d also want to try it on before buying. I think I’ll wait for this to go in the sale though. £44.00 is a lot for a bikini in my mind…

  • Soft Kitty Clothing Mermaid Bikini – £15.00 (link)

I really love the look of this bikini as it reminds me of Ariel from The Little Mermaid but again, it’s that mermaid print that I love so much appearing again. This is the cheapest bikini on this list and it looks really good quality too! The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it states not to swim in pools with chlorine, which I understand but at the same time that kind of sucks. I would wear the bikini top during sunbathing as it can be a bandeau but I don’t know that for sure. I can’t see this being a bikini I pick up, but if any of the ones on this list aren’t available before the holiday then this could be a last resort.

  • River Island Mermaid Metallic Bandeau Bikini – £16.00 (link)

This is a bikini set I’ve had my eye on for a while now but it always seems to run out of stock or is sold out in sales. It’s only available on ASOS now but for £16.00 this is a decent price in my mind for a River Island bikini! I’ve been after a bandeau for a while to be honest for sunbathing in, as well as going out and about. As you can tell I have a metallic and holographic theme going on with these bikinis and this one is such a gorgeous petrol colour!

Missguided Blue Metallic Harness Bikini – £25.00 down to £12.50 (link)

There seems to be a trend this year with harnesses on bikinis and whilst I love it, I find it may also be impractical when tanning due to lines being left behind everywhere. I wouldn’t wear this for sunbathing in, it would definitely be one for going to the beach or shopping. I love the bottoms more than anything as they look so flattering and comfortable! These are so cheap in the sale that a part of me feels like ordering them now. 😛 But I won’t, I’ll wait to buy the bikini set I’m talking about last on this post.

  • Boohoo Manhattan Hologram Triangle Tie Bikini – £18.00 (link)

I want a bog standard holographic bikini and this is probably the nicest one I have found, which is from Boohoo. They sell loads of stuff like this on eBay but I don’t trust the quality of eBay sellers stock. You can’t go wrong with Boohoo though and for £18.00 you can’t go wrong really. I’d wear this to go swimming in the pool, the beach and even to sunbathe in. So we shall see!

  • Killstar Arabella Halter Top – £19.99 (link)
  • Killstar Arabella Posing Shorts – £14.99 (link)

I’m saving my favourite item on this list until last! If there has been a bikini I have really fallen in love with, it’s definitely this one by Killstar. I was actually meant to order this and a dress with the same pattern when I got paid a couple of weeks ago, but I left it and bought a PS Vita instead… Priorities! 😛 BUT I will either be ordering this when I get paid next month, or September just before the holiday. Probably August though… 😛 I love mermaid printed things thanks to Black Milk Clothing and their gorgeous mermaid print leggings, which I own two pairs of (you can read and look at me wearing the one pair here) and love to death! I always take those with me whenever I’ve visited Fuerteventura, so why not wear a bikini with the same look to it? This one just looks sexy yet comfortable and flattering at the same time. I was worried this would actually cost more but when you compare the price of it alongside the Boux Avenue one, it’s a bargain really! This definitely isn’t a bikini I would wear when watching to catch the sun and tan and I’m sure you can see why! It’d be more something to wear on hot days whilst walking around with (again!) some shorts or even my Black Milk mermaid leggings. I just need this bikini in my life! 😛

So those are the bikinis I’m lusting after at the moment! There are so many things I want to buy and wear for the holiday and whilst I’m not low on funds at the moment, I don’t WANT to be low on funds either.

We shall see… I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing a haul of what goodies I get for the holiday.

Do you have your eye on any bikinis? If so please share them with me! 😀 Also, are you going on holiday this summer? Let me know where you’re going in the comments.

Until next time, take care all everyone and I hope you’re having a great week so far.

Wish List Wednesday – Home

I was going to do a WHOLLLLE post about the garden soon and show off some inspiration about how I want to do the garden, but I wanted to write a wish list Wednesday post up this evening, so I thought why not do it now?

Me and Dane are both taking a week off next week together to work on the house together. Just any little bits and pieces we want to finish off and in June we should be doing up the garden!

There will be all sorts on this wish list from furniture, pictures and even some home appliances! So get yourself a cup of tea and have a read. I know I have a cuppa whilst I write this and I’m binge watch K-ON! with Dane. This list is obviously from both of us but I’ll be the only one writing, unlike my last wish list Wednesday list which was about Nendoroids both me and Dane want. You can read that post here.

  • IKEA FLEKKE Day Bed – £349.99 (link)

Me and Dane are planning on putting a sofa bed into our spare room/office so that one of us can sit on it whenever the other is on the computer and for when we have guests over so that they have somewhere to sit. They recently brought out this specific bed in a dark brown colour, which makes us happy! It’s not cheap at nearly £350 but it’s so worth it! I’d want to get loads of pillows to pop on this as well as some cute plushies to jazz it up a bit. As there is storage underneath we could use that for all sorts of things which is great.

  • The Range Borneo Luxury Egg Chair – £249.99 (link)

I WANT an egg chair for the garden, I don’t know why but I do. They look so snugg to cuddle up on with a book and just chill out. This is of course what I want to have by the back door, or even on the grass by the shed… When we get the shed built. This one isn’t cheap however but it’s the nicest one I have found so far. We would of course look for a similar one but at a much friendlier price. 😉

  • B&Q Fresn Iridescent 3 Lamp Plate Spotlight – £30.00 currently reduced to £23.00 (link)

I’ve been after two of these spotlights for the upstairs and downstairs hallways since we bought the matching shade of these (which is here) for our front bedroom. Now they’re on offer, we have some cash spare to splash AND they’re on offer we may as well get them on our week off and get them fitted! Will mean we can get rid of the old ones that were here when we moved in.

  • Complexwish Sprited Away Print – From £8.09 (link)

I LOVE Studio Ghibli films and I especially love Spirited Away. It’s one of my favourite films so whenever I see any prints in relation to the film I more often than not want to buy them. This print is gorgeous to be honest and whilst I have a lovely one by Josie Sexton, I WANT MORE! I would pop this print in a frame and pop it up behind out bed. I’d probably get quite a big version of this print so that it fills the gap behind the bed. Either that or I’d end up putting it up above the fireplace in the living room.

  • Homebase La Hacienda Icarus Fire Pit – £53.28 (link)

Both me and Dane have always wanted a fire pit and now we have our own place we can do just that. We wanted to buy one last summer but never got around to it, so as the weather gets warmer we’ll be buying one of these babies for long and warm summer evenings in the garden. Homebase had loads when we popped in on Saturday and for the price this was one of the best ones we saw. We’ll definitely be keeping our eyes on it!

So that was our short and sweet wish list for home related matter! I do apologise that it wasn’t longer but there isn’t a whole lot we need for the house, we just need little bits and pieces now really.

I’m sure when it comes to it I’ll be posting some garden inspiration on here. I’ve been using Pinterest to gain some ideas, but so far nothing is really helping…

Do you have any home related items on your wish lists? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

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

Wish List Wednesday – Pin Badges

I haven’t written a wish list Wednesday for quite a while now, or at least I don’t recall… Actually it’s only been over a month. Jeez am I getting that old I forget so quickly? 😛 So I thought why not do one now! I seem to have grown a new love of pin badges lately and I actually don’t know why. I used to love them growing up and would collect them as and when I could, but sadly that little hobby died although I do still own all the pin badges I collected back in the day.

So thanks to beauty bloggers Instagram pages I have now formed a new hobby, pin badge collecting. They’re mostly all geeky ones too and especially Pokemon themed. So why not make a wish list post about what pin badges I want to have in my new collection and shape my new hobby!

  • PinPalzUK – Sailor Mew Pin -£5.00 (link)
  • SpaceCadetCollective – “Blottertung” Lickitung Pin – £9.94 (link) and “Kantodex” V Pin -$23.00 (link)
  • ReallyBigDill – Togepi Surprise Pin – £8.90 (link)
  • TheSundayCo – Pokeball Deathstar Pin – £5.72 (link) and Hey Gurl Pin – £5.72 (link)
  • CosmeticMermaidPins – Free to Good Trainer Pokemon Pin – £11.45 (link)
  • AgainstMarj – Cubone Pin – £8.29 (link)
  • SourAttitudeClub – 8bit Eevee Pin – £8.70 (link), 8bit Surfing Glitterchu Pin – £8.70 (link) and 8bit Ditto Pin – £8.70 (link)

I know I usually write about each item, on wish list posts but I really don’t feel the need to on this one. All of the pins are Pokemon related bar one which is Adventure Time. My favourite pin badge out of the bunch is the Kantodex pin by SpaceCadetCollective. It opens up and is glittery, what isn’t to love? I’d stick it on my bag or on one of my jackets.

Do you like pin badges? If so which ones do you own or are lusting after? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

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

Wish List Wednesday – Killstar

Woohoo it’s Wednesday and I thought I would do a wish list, seeing as I haven’t done a wish list Wednesday for quite a long time. I was planning to do one based on games that are due to come out later this year, but I decided to save that for another post and base this one off of one on a brand I really love the look of, Killstar.

For those who may not know Killstar was founded in 2010 and is a clothing company that creates stunning and beautiful gothic pieces for both men and women. They’re also from Glasgow!

 photo Wish List Wednesday - Killstar_zpsybakfvcd.jpg

  • Addams Dress – £39.99 (link)

This is the dress that led me to discovered who Killstar were. I can’t remember her name but an alternative fashion blogger wrote about this dress and did a lookbook with it. She wore it so nicely and I instantly fell in love with the dress. It’s called the Addams dress because it’s inspired by Wednesday Addams. Ha! Wednesday! 😛 This looks like the kind of dress you would wear for special events and nights out, hell no! I’d wear this out and about with brothel creepers and in winter a nice warm coat! This is a gorgeous dress and one I nearly ordered from their recent sale. Wah why didn’t I?!

  • Sorcery Hood Dress – £49.99 (link)

I don’t know what it is I love about this dress, but I think it’s the hood! I’m weird and love rocking up with a baggy hoodie on looking all gangsta and shizzle and getting ready to be kicked out of the shop because they can’t see my face. I’d love to say that’s a true story but it isn’t… 😛 ANYWAY! I probably wouldn’t wear this out and about as much as the Addams dress but it’d be nice to wear if I fancied dressing up with some Dr Martens to make it look edgy, or some heels to make it look more sexy than it already does.

  • Unicorn Tarot Kimono Dress – £39.99 (link)

Not going to lie this is probably my favourite dress on this list and I don’t really know why! I just love the unicorn tarot card print on the front, it looks funky and cool without it being too in your face about it. If that makes sense! I mostly love the style of this dress with the kimono look to it, as it’s a style I have always loved but never been able to find anything in said style that I really like the look of. Either way I really want this dress, but when it was in the sale last week it sold out in every size apart from XL, which is a size too big for me… So I ordered it anyway. It’s meant to be fitted so I thought meh sod it the extra room will probably be nice. We shall see!

  • Tartan Skater Dress – £31.99 (link)

Out of all of the Killstar dresses I think this is the most normal one… Like the sort of style and print etc that you would find in a high store shop such as New Look, or Topshop. I really like the print on this due to the tartan red and black print turning into a black print at the bottom. It gives it that nice gothic look that isn’t too in your face. This would be nice to wear all year around too, with no sleeves in the summer and with a nice white or black shirts underneath.

  • After Effect Knit Dress in Grey – £44.99 (link)

Finally we have this grey knit dress which I can just imagine me wearing when I’m having a can’t be arsed to do sod all day but I need to dress somewhat reasonable so I put this dress on. This is me pretty much every day! It’s a really nice day and instead of dressing summery I’ve got grey joggers, bunny slippers and a Deadpool tee on. BUT this dress is gorgeous at he same time. They also have this in black but I thought the grey one looked nice. The sleeves look really baggy too, so you can cover your hands with the sleeves. Hashtag shy hand! 😛

So that was my Killstar wish list. I was intending to have six instead of five items on this list, but when I talk about my recent Killstar purchase of the Kruger jumper (you can see it on my haul post here) I’ll mention a few more items that I wanna get in the future.

Have you ever heard of Killstar? If so what do you think of them? If you hadn’t heard about them before this post then is it your type of fashion? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

Wish List Wednesday – Yankee Candle and Yankee Candle Simply Home

I haven’t made a wish list Wednesday post for quite a while! So I thought, what the hell. I may as well make one! 😛 I didn’t know what on Earth to do one about mind, and then I realised I hadn’t had a nose on the Yankee Candle website for a while. Until now! I don’t need any new Yankee Candle’s anytime soon, but it doesn’t hurt to look, does it?

 photo Wish List Wednesday Yankee Candle_zpswqdnu3we.jpg

Blueberry Scone – £21.99 (link)

The delicious aroma of English scone with sweet blueberries, rich cream and a hint of vanilla.

I’ve been after this candle for years now, and I wish I had bought it last summer when I was eyeing it up in the Yankee Candle store near me. However, I left it and Dane bought me Hazelnut Coffee instead. I’d love to pick this up soon to light whilst I’m having chilled evenings over the weekend.

Vanilla – from £1.80 – £21.99 (link)

A pure vanilla fragrance that is both sweet and subdued, sugared yet creamy

This is a new candle from Yankee and it’s one I REALLY want! Vanilla scents remind me of my mom and when I was little, as that’s what she’s always loved, alongside lavender scents. I haven’t smelt this yet, but I can’t wait to! I don’t know where I’ll find it anytime soon to give it a sniff but I can see me buying it as soon as possible.

Strawberry Lemon Ice – £21.99 (link)

Refresh your home with the cool scent of just-picked strawberries and strips of lemon peel crisped in ice.

This sounds absolutely delicious! I haven’t smelt this one, but it’d be really nice for the summer to burn over the lighter evenings when cooking dinner for me and Dane. Or whilst we chill out and play games. I love Yankee Candle’s Sweet Strawberry candle, as well as their Sicilian Lemon candle, so I can only imagine I’ll love this!

Coconut & Vanilla Bean – £14.99 (link)

Breathe in the sensual scent of creamy coconut and pure vanilla whenever you want to feel warm, wonderful and contented.

I love this collection, and this is my favourite smelling one from the collection. However, I have always stopped myself from buying it due to either having too many candles at the time, or saving money. I’d love to pick this up soon mind… But we shall see! It’s a gorgeous creamy smelling candle, not for people who dislike coconut! The vanilla bean in here does mask that a little though.

Coconut & Lime – £22.75 (link)

What a happy combination! This uplifting marriage of coconut and lime makes every day feel brighter.

I have smelt this one before, but I wasn’t as keen on it as I was with the previous coconut scent. It has a nice tarte scent to it which reminds me of some sort of dessert. This isn’t at the top of my list, but for how big the jar is, and it being a two wick candle I’m pretty sure it would be a nice change from the usual Yankee Candles.

So that’s my Yankee Candle wish list… Now onto the Yankee Candle Simply Home wish list!

 photo Wish List Wednesday Simply Home_zpsvtycbsfp.jpg

Blueberry Cheesecake – £13 (link)

This deliciously fragranced large candle from Yankee Candle Simply Home is inspired by one of our favourite desserts! With the scent of mouth-watering blueberries drizzled over creamy vanilla cheesecake, it’s the best candle to satisfy your sweet-tooth.

I LOVE blueberries! I also love cheesecake, so I knew I would be in love with this candle! I really want to pick it up, especially for £13. I think the next time I’m in Asda I’ll pick one of these bad boys up. 😛

Peach Smoothie – £13 (link)

Summon up the feel of a lazy summer afternoon with this must-have Yankee Candle. The juicy, peachy tones will add a relaxing feel to your home, and in a large glass jar this candle features 110-150 hours’ burn time for a long-lasting appeal.

I’ve bought these before as a little wax tart, and it is a gorgeous scent! It has an amazing throw, and is a light and creamy scent which is perfect for if you don’t want anything too heavy.

Strawberry Shortcake – £13 (link)

A real summertime favourite, this scent will bring farm-fresh strawberries and shortcake into your home any time of year. Featuring a signature glass jar, the large design offers 110-150 hours’ burn time.

Like the Peach Smoothie, I’ve also had this candle as a wax tart and again it has an amazing scent, as well as a lovely throw. This is is really tarte and reminds me of the dessert itself.

Tangerine & Vanilla – £13 (link)

Make your home as fresh as can be with this gorgeous large Yankee Candle Simply Home jar. With ripe tangerine and a hint of sweet vanilla, it’s a strong, delicious fragrance that will embrace you as soon as you walk through the door.

Anything with vanilla in it sounds amazing to me, and tangerines and vanilla just sounds like a yummy summer pudding. This would be especially nice to burn during the day in summer time.

Shea Butter & Vanilla – £13 (link)

Wonderfully soothing this deliciously scented large candle from Yankee Candle Simply Home is fragranced with musky blend of shea butter and sweet vanilla. Perfect for when it’s time sit back and relax. Go on – you deserve it!

This sounds really lovely! The sort of scent I would burn during the day and into the evening on rainy days.

I’ll be picking up the wax tarts of all of the above that I haven’t tried yet, just so I can give them a go before plunging into the £13 large jar.

So that’s all from me and my wish list! What candles do you have your eye on at the moment? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

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

Wish List Wednesday – Deadpool (Guest Post)

Hey guys! Dane here! Nat is letting me loose on her blog again to talk to you about the regenerat-ing degenerate, Deadpool.
Today the merc’ with a mouth arrives on the silver screen. It has been an incredibly long time coming; both Nat and I have been incredibly excited since its announcement over a year ago. Recently we have seen everyone go crazy for the ‘pool, it is everywhere and to me that is a very good thing for fans of the character. You can’t be anywhere and not see an advert on a bus or on social media. Personally, it is absolutely brilliant. The best thing they are doing with the movie is the “touching yourself” campaign for men and women, where Deadpool instructs you to check yourself for lumps and bumps and not even in a way that makes you think it’s an awful attempt to promote the movie.
Do I need to give you a background of the character? Just watch this video.

With the upcoming movie Nat has tasked me with providing you all with a few possible gift ideas that I would personally like and for that person who loves a bit of Deadpool. You could gift these for someone for Valentine’s Day, or even just as a general pay day treat for yourself. The possibilities are endless!

deadpool20wish20list_zpsmt36m9hv

Well the best place to start for a comic book character is obviously the comics. You can start with the Deadpool Classics as I believe that’s where he is first introduced. I’ve never been a big fan of comics as I never liked the art style of the older comics. I started with the Deadpool Complete collections which are a bit newer and I think are the ones which really show Deadpool as we all know it. I also have the Deadpool kills series, Night of the Living Deadpool and Return of the Living Deadpool. All good stories in my opinion, I have found myself reading through the collections as soon as I buy them. I have just enjoyed them that much. The weird and sometimes hysterically dark adventures have kept me invested with this character and it just makes me that much more excited to see him portrayed on the silver screen. I would like the Cable and Deadpool series next (and eventually all Deadpool related media) but I think the next one I’m going to buy will be the next volume of the Complete Collection and Deadpool Vs. Thanos as starting a new series would just confuse my little brain.

  • 12 Inch Figure – £259.99 (link)

Well who wouldn’t want this? Doesn’t it just look majestic? Yes it does, is exactly what your answer should be. Never mind the price, just means its proper quality. Am I right? 😀
For something a little more feasible and less stressful on the wallet. Imagine this bad boy sitting on your shelf/in your display cabinet. I want it. I want all the expensive figures at some point. Including the Star Wars Stormtrooper ones and there’s this Attack on Titan figure (link here) that would mortally wound my bank account. If you have the £300 to spare it would make an excellent addition to anyone’s collection.

  • Pop! Vinyl Deadpool Chimichanga Truck – £22.99 (link)

This I could live with and not feel like my bank account hates me. I have said before in other posts my uneasiness with Pop! Vinyl figures but I think this one would be pretty cool to have. It has the figure with Deadpool’s Chimichanga Truck. What is not like about that?

  • Clothing

For something to wear out there’s plenty of things out there, be it official or not there’s some decent quality stuff. Just Google “Deadpool clothing” and you will find an abundance of items but if you want to be saved that arduous journey of pressing Ctrl+T and typing that short sentence here’s a few items.

  • Varsity Jacket – £29.99 (link)

I love my varsity clothing, I have enough myself. My snowboard jacket is varsity, I have a Black Mesa (Half Life) varsity and a few other jackets to go along with them. For me the colour isn’t my thing as it’s too in your face but it still looks pretty cool. Natalee talked about this in her February wish list (link here) and I think she likes this item more so than me.

  • T-Shirts – starting from £14.99-£15.99 (link, and link)

For something a bit more subtle you can go for these t-shirts. I can see myself wearing these to show my support for the ‘pool.

  • Lego Keyring – Various prices on eBay, just search for “Lego Deadpool keyring/keychain”

This one is quite the unique one. Nat actually bought us one each as a little Valentine’s Day present, and they are pretty darn awesome. Merging the Lego and Marvel universes even further by this unofficial Lego figure. I can’t really see Lego ever bringing out this character officially as he is known to be aimed at a more mature audience, then again he has had more toned down appearances in other media including Ultimate Spiderman. So there could be a chance, but in the mean time I am happy to settle with this. His swords even detach and can be held! Whoever made this is pretty skilled, mega props to them!

  • Game (available on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4) – starting from £26.59-£28.00 (link)

I know that when it was originally released it wasn’t the best game in the world and according to newer reviews it still isn’t. It has been released for newer consoles and includes some of the up-dates and DLC bundled with it. I have watched Lets Players run through this game and it looks entertaining but the game play just seems… Bleh. I am also conflicted by the way Deadpool is portrayed. From memory he’s a bit wackier than I would like. Which yes Deadpool is crazy and can be quirky, but he’s not THAT bad. The game seemed to remind me of the Animaniacs and I just think that’s a bit too much for his character. He has some dark moments in the comics; he’s desperate to die, he has an intimate relationship with the Marvel personification of death (who is female) and he just wants to be seen as a good guy really. I haven’t actually played the game (yet) so my re-view could be somewhat unfair and my assumptions and prejudices could be preventing me from being exposed to great Deadpool media. For what it is, a cash grab by Activision to jump on the movie hype, it is a tad expensive and I will be waiting for a price drop or sale to happen before genuinely going to buy it.

So there it is a few ideas for the Deadpool lovers out there. I know I will be getting a few of these.

Both Nat and I are excited to see the film in a few hours, are you? Have you seen anything here that you think you would like to buy for yourself, if not someone else? Have you got any awesome Deadpool items you want to share with us? Feel let us know, and feel free to comment below and tell us what you think! Ciao! 😀

Thanks again to Dane for being on my blog! I love when he writes for me, as like Deadpool he is just so wacky, and hilarious. 😛

We’re off to go watch Deadpool now anyhoo, I hope you are too!

Until next time all, take care.
