Wish List Wednesday – Deadpool 2

This is a post I never thought I would make and HOLY SHIT am I excited for Deadpool 2! I loved when it came out and I still do love that film. Me and Dane discussed for ages if Ryan Reynolds would return to do another film and we weren’t shocked when it was announced. We booked to go and see it at the end of April and I cannot wait to go and see it next week with Dane. We’re going to make an evening of it, go watch the film and have a meal. I’m so excited!

If you’re an old reader of my blog you’ll know that my boyfriend Dane did a wish list Wednesday post for me 2 years ago when the first Deadpool came out. If you’d like to read that post, you can find it here.

Now we have another film out, I thought it would be fun to do a wish list post myself this time! I’ve wanted to do this since we finally booked the tickets to go and watch the film. I cannot explain how excited I am for it. ARGH!!!

Anyway, enough! On with the wish list!

  • Deadpool 5-Pack Ladies Socks – (link)

First of all for an officially licensed product, 5 pairs of socks for £6.99 to me is such a bargain! I’d love to get these as I’d wear them with my Vans at work for whenever I wear my short trousers (I don’t have a clue what they’re called!) at work. I recently started to wear my Eeveelutions socks like this for work and it’s cool thinking that I’m bringing a bit of my geeky self to work, without being out there about it, you know? Also as well as that these would be great to wear around the house, as well as out and about.

  • Deadpool Mystery Minis – (link)

My friend Sophie brought these to my attention quite some time ago and I’ve always had them at the back of my mind, but when doing some research for this post I stumbled across them and remembered how much I did want them a few months back. I’d still love one or two of these to have on my desk at work and in my car. You can buy a whole set of them from forbiddenplanet.co.uk but I don’t need to do that. I’ll just get myself (and maybe Dane for shits and giggles!) a couple to open for a laugh.

  • Loungefly Marvel Deadpool Tattoo Flash Print Mini Faux Leather Backpack – (link)

Oh man if anyone knows me, they’ll know I love Loungefly. Even recently I bought myself a new Loungefly bag (which you can see and read about here) and I love my Pokemon Loungefly bag to bits (which you can read here)! When I discovered Geek La Chic recently through Estellosaurus I had a nose on their website and discovered that they stock Loungefly bags! I’m not going to lie, they’re bloody expensive in comparison to some websites out there (GAME and EMP come to mind right now) but man, would I LOVE a Deadpool Loungefly bag. Deadpool is my favourite Marvel character, I have to show that love through Loungefly at some point in the future.

  • Deadpool Notebook – (link)

I don’t need a new notebook… But if this was being sold for cheaps I’d want to pick it up to keep on my desk at work. My 2017 journal was Deadpool and I loved it so much! I currently have a 101 Dalmatians Cath Kidston notebook as my 2018 journal right now and sadly I don’t use it half as much as I did with my Deadpool one. I really need to tbf.

  • Deadpool Wipe Your Feet Door Mat – (link)

Me and Dane already own a Deadpool door mat, it isn’t this one BUT I think we both need this one now. We want to get a door mat for our back door and this is just the best timing ever. I’m going to pick it up at some point in the future. Why not have Deadpool for both our front and back doors, eh?

  • Deadpool Katana Umbrella – (link)

I don’t need an umbrella, but how amazing is this one? The picture above isn’t really doing this justice. When you open it you have a picture of Deadpool, of course. The main thing I love about this umbrella is that you can carry it across your body! This would be handy to have when out and about, as the one thing I really hate doing is carrying an umbrella! It’s so tedious and it can’t be just me who feels like that?! It looks like a huge umbrella too, which is even better.

  • Deadpool Geeki Tiki – (link)

This is by far my favourite item on this wish list! I mean, do I really need to say fuck all about it? Look how awesome it is!!! I’m not a massive tiki glass person but only in the sense of I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy one, BUT these are awesome. I’ve already had a nose at what others you can buy, but my favourite just has to be the Deadpool one. I especially love that it’s red, which would match with my kitchen perfectly! I wouldn’t just keep this for alcoholic drinks, I’d use it for any drink imaginable.

  • Deadpool Ladies Eyes Tee – (link)

I’m really after a new Deadpool tee lately. I recently had a look at the ones that Primark have for sale and whilst they’re pretty good for the monies, they’re nothing special. I love both the colour and style of it and it’s one of the best I’ve seen for ages. They do this for men too, as well as women.

  • Deadpool Spatula With Removable Mask – (link)

I think I’ll end up buying this because 1. It’s cheap and 2. It’s absolutely amazing! I mean look at it! I’m never going to say no to adding a Deadpool spatula into my kitchen in all honesty. I might try and pick these up soon and actually gift them to Dane for a giggle for our fifth anniversary next month, which I can’t believe that in all honesty, it’s really flown! I love that you can change Deadpool’s faces on this though, I wouldn’t know which to use really. 😛

So that’s my wish list Wednesday this time and as I’ve already said, it just HAD to be Deadpool related! I’m so stoked to go and watch it next week. It’s officially out Friday 18th but I know it’ll be around from Tuesday 16th so if you haven’t booked tickets or made plans yet, get on it! Deadpool 2 will be here before we know it.

Will you be going to watch Deadpool 2? If so let me know after you’ve seen it what you think! Is there any Deadpool merch you’ve seen lately and think I need to know about? Let me know in the comments, as always.

Anyhoo, I hope you all had an amazing bank holiday Monday, as well as an awesome weekend. Until next time, take care all and see you soon!

Wish List Wednesday – Joanie Clothing

Oh man, I don’t feel like I’ve done a wish list Wednesday post for the longest time… *looks* Nope I haven’t done one since towards the end of November (which you can read here if you want to) which is probably due to have zero money… Not that I have free spending money now. 😛

Ages ago through a blogger I discovered Joanie Clothing and recently I’ve been looking into the brand again to buy myself some nice dresses for work. Over the weekend I ordered myself a couple and I AM EXCITED to get them! I’m just hoping they fit well for how much they cost to be honest. I’m kind of fed up of buying dresses off of the high street and not lasting very long.

I decided it would be a good time to do a with list Wednesday post and why not do it about Joanie Clothing?!

As with all my wish list Wednesday posts, I’ll talk about each item in enough detail as I’m happy with.

So, on with the wish list! 😀

  • Martha Cat Print Dress (link)

I actually saw this dress second hand on eBay, which I wanted to pick up but sadly I didn’t get to it in time and missed out. Due to this I was going to pop it into my basket when I made my order as it’s currently on sale, but left it due to it being on eBay. This is a gorgeous blue dress with kitty faces all over. I especially love the collar, I’m always a sucker for stuff like this. This would for sure be lovely to wear for work, as well as in general for weekends out with Dane in the sunshine with a chunky cardigan over the top. My main worry with the dress is sizing on the bust area, I’ve seen some fellow bloggers review and post about this dress online and I’ve seen gaping across the bust area… BIG NO NO!

  • Zooey Swan Collar Dress – Pink (link)

I’ve ordered one of the Zooey style dresses in the sale and honestly I am in love with the style of this dress! They have quite a few different colours, but I really love this peachy pink shade the most. It’s just very spring/summer looking and is definitely the sort of colour I need for my wardrobe! In all honestly though, I also love the blue version (which you can see here) and I think deep down I would feel more comfortable wearing this one. But who knows, we shall see! 😛

  • Edith Scallop Stripe Tee – Yellow (link)

I’m always after some short sleeves t-shirts when it comes to work to wear with both skirts and trousers. This tee is so adorable and would go with my hounds tooth and checked trousers so well, especially throughout the spring, summer and autumn months. The only thing I don’t like about this tee is the price. It’s pretty expensive for what it is and in all honesty I could grab something similar if not the same for a much cheaper price on the high street.

  • Martie Navy Stripe Shirt Dress – (link)

I’m partial to a nice striped dress and t-shirt every now and again and this dress would be great as an all year one to wear on weekends off and at work. I love the colours of it but I mostly like how the stripes are horizontal across the top part and vertical at the bottom. It makes a nice change from stripes just being in one direction… If that makes sense? 😛

  • Clara Polka Dot Dress – (link)

Alongside stripes, I also love spotty dresses! This navy dress with white spots and peter pan collar is adorable and one that can be worn anytime of year! It also has pockets, which is what I like to hear when it comes to dresses! I’m a massive fan of peter pan style dresses, especially skater dresses too, which is what this is. It’d look adorable with a black or burgundy cardigan and some brown brogues in the summer.

  • Gogo Blue Floral Dress – (link)

This is the last item on this wish list and one I’ve ummed and ahhed about for a while as to whether to add to this list or not. I just had to thought. It’s such a 70’s inspired dress and I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about that time that I love and wish I could go back in time to enjoy. I especially love the fashion styles and prints from then and this dress just shouts 70’s summers in the UK and discotheques! This dress seems to nice to wear in general, but I’d totally rock it whenever possible. The print just looks so cheerful and uplifting. The perfect dress for a Monday morning when you need a pick me up, or a Friday shift before the weekend strikes!

So that was my wish list Wednesday about Joanie Clothing! As I write this I am incredibly gutted that I missed my parcel with my Joanie Clothing goodies in. I’ll now have to wait until tomorrow morning to pick said parcel up on my way to work and try them on when I get home. MEH!

I’m hoping the two dresses I bought are okay… I plan to write a post about what I bought, as well as a review of the company themselves!

Do you like Joanie Clothing? If so which piece(s) do you own? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

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

April Wish List ’18

Easter has come and gone and I hope you had an amazing Easter with your family and friends! Me and Dane had a lovely long weekend together, that was very much needed after he’s been away from work.

I cannot believe it’s now April and this month I’m hoping will FINALLY be the first time this year that we don’t have any bloody snow. I am officially ready for spring.

It’s also Dane’s birthday this month, so whilst I have my wish list post with plenty of goodies on, I need to pick up Dane’s birthday presents all the same.

Let’s not waste too much time, on with the wish list (which sadly isn’t anything special this month)!

  • Nintendo 3DS Style Boutique 3: Styling Star – (link)

I recently picked up a new 2DS for myself and oh man I love it! I can’t wait to talk about it on my blog soon to be honest with you. ANYWAY I noticed recently that Nintendo have brought out a new Style Boutique game and since the first one back in 2010, I’ve played all of them to date. I really want to get this one soon after recently playing the demo. They’re just so relaxing to play and not the hardest in the world either.

  •  Official Nintendo 3DS XL Persona Q Shadow of the Labyrinth Travel Case – (link)

As I just mentioned above, with buying myself a new 2DS I need a new case to keep it in. I’m loving this limited edition Persona Q one and I REALLY want it! It’s not cheap though sadly and that puts me off sadly. 😦 I’m going to see how I feel when I’m paid. I’ve had a search around for one similar if not the same one at a cheaper price, but sadly I’ve had no luck.

  • Pokemon Center Original OTEIRE Please Memo stand clip Pikachu mini figure – (link)

This is something I was hoping to pick up around my birthday, but left it. I still want it to be honest with you. Now I’m feeling settled at work I would love to have a little picture of me and Dane on my desk. Not a normal one, but one of our commissioned pieces of us, specifically the one we had drawn at Hyper Japan. It’s our favourite and to look at it on a daily basis during my shift would cheer me up, even more so on a cute Pikachu picture stand.

  • Nichijou Manga Volume 5 and Volume 6 – (link) and (link)

As I’ve said previously, I always like to order at least one manga to read in the month. I don’t know if I will order any this month as I want to catch up on manga I currently own. I also plan to order Dane loads of manga for his birthday so… ANYWAY! I started reading Nichijou at the start of 2017 as I received some of the volumes for Christmas 2016. I also received some for Christmas/my birthday just gone and it’s time for me to continue reading it. I can’t just keep waiting for Christmas and birthdays to read it. 😛 They’re not expensive really and there’s only 10 volumes at the moment so before I know it I’d have them all. We shall see though.

  • Nintendo 3DS Detective Pikachu – (link)

The final item on this months wish list is yet another 3DS game. I remember hearing about this coming out and was super excited, especially with recent news out about Ryan Reynolds voicing Detective Pikachu in the movie that is being made. SO when I heard the Pikachu’s voice in the trailer for the game… I was extremely disappointed and put off buying it. However, I keep seeing trailers on my Facebook as well as having a look at YouTube myself for videos of game play and I rather like the look of it… I can ignore the voice of Pikachu and how brash it sounds. I’ve wanted to play games like this for ages, so maybe this one can be a first insight into games like this, eh?

Well, those are all the items I have on my wish list. I couldn’t really think of what I wanted to add here this month as I need to be good to be honest. We shall see what happens, but I don’t think I’ll be buying myself lovely things, it’ll be Dane being spoilt in April!

What items are on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you had a lovely time off for Easter!

March Wish List ’18

Another month has come and gone and yes, I know February is a short month anyway BUT BLOODY HELL! I can’t believe it is March! I’m excited though for spring this year, which I’ll be writing a blog post about VERY soon! 😀

This months wish list was very hard to write as at the moment there isn’t really anything I’m wanting for. I’ve made a naughty purchase this month already, which I’m hoping to also write a blog post about soon!

Until then, you’ll just have to deal with my Marsh wish list post! I hope you enjoy. 🙂

  • Honey Punch Oversized Cardigan In Rainbow Stripe – (link)

If any regular readers have been watching my blog since before Christmas you’ll have seen that I was lusting after a duplicate cardigan of the rainbow one from Lazy Oaf. When Lazy Oaf brought out their version it went crazy online and sold out super quick. I was gutted I never got the chance to even contemplate buying one, but for £75 HELL TO THE NO. I then went out looking for fakes from China… Which I don’t really want either. On a random search on ASOS I found this awesome one by Honey Punch! It’s distressed on the bottom and oversized. I actually prefer this one to the Lazy Oaf one and it’s half of the price! Sadly it’s currently sold out in the size I am/want so I’ll be waiting for it to come back in stock and as soon as it does, I’ll be ordering! Since starting my office job I LIVE in cardigans now and I’d love to rock a rainbow one to work.

  • Pandora You and Me Ring – (link)

This ring came out as part of the Valentine’s Day collection, which is around the time I noticed it on the website. It’s so gorgeous but at first it did make me wonder if it was an engagement ring… It’s not. 😛 I really, REALLY want this ring but I’m trying to save money right now and just buy things that don’t cost much or things I REALLY want. If that makes sense… Either way I was tempted to pick this up this month as a treat to myself but I’m going to wait. Mine and Dane’s 5th anniversary will be here before I know it and I know he wants to get me a piece of jewellery in the future so we shall see what happens.

  • New Look Tall Red Ditsy Floral Soft Touch Skater Dress – (link)

Okay I probably don’t class as being “tall” (I’m 5’5 so I’m “average”) but I’m finding lately when I buy dresses they can come up short, which is frustrating! I want to start buying tall skirts and dresses if possible and of course if they look good. I would love some new dresses for work as although I’m loving what I have right now, I do want some fresh pieces for the spring and summer months. I love wearing red and this looks gorgeous for the money! I may not get it this month but I’ll keep my eyes peeled on it for the future.

  • Orange: The Complete Collection: 1 Manga (link)

I love manga so every month whenever a new volume comes out of a series I’m reading, I’ll order! But this month I want to pick up something new to read, Orange being one of them! I’ve heard nothing but good things about both the anime and the manga. I would buy both collection 1 and 2 but I want to try and keep being good, so I’ll only order this one for now and get the next one next month.

  • New Look Black Crepe Scuba Pinafore Dress – (link)

Again, another dress for work. I’m really into pinafore dresses at the moment but I haven’t really had a good look for anything right now! I really want one for work to team up with my long sleeved striped t-shirts! I love the look of this one from New Look as it looks so comfortable. I’d team it up with tights and a nice pair of flats for a chilled look. I wouldn’t say no to a thick chunky cardigan too when days are a little on the chilly side!

  • Sass & Belle Lima Llama Trinket Dish (link)

I really NEED a trinket dish for my jewellery at the moment as now I’m wearing it daily it just pretty much sits on my dressing table, which isn’t the nicest way to treat Pandora and Thomas Sabo now, is it? I had my eye on a Pusheen trinket dish last month and recently spied a cute bunny one from Asda, BUT llamas are kind of doing it for me right now… When me and Dane got the house we went out and bought little bits and pieces for the house, one of these being a llama planter. Nearly 2 years later and I STILL haven’t put anything in it. Instead it sits empty of my bedroom shelf. Last month I picked us up a new washing basket, which has llamas all over it! So why not add to this obvious llama themed for upstairs by getting a trinket dish? I just want something to keep my bracelets, necklace and ring on really.

So those are all the items on my wish list this month! I could have included more manga but I’ve already ordered it/plan to now I’m paid!

What items 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 and I hope you’re having a lovely weekend.

Barry M Under The Sea Nail Paint in Butterflyfish and Jellyfish – Review

Urgh just a couple of days ago I had written half this blog post and popped out to see some people. Then come this afternoon I have come to continue with said post and it’s gone. It didn’t save and I have done everything I could possibly do to get it back, with zero luck. URRRRGH! So I am having to start again. Yuck.

As many of you may have seen on my February wish list that I’ve been eyeing up the new Barry M nail paints for quite some time now, in fact every since they announced their new Under The Sea range back a month ago via a live Instagram video. I watched a couple of times in awe of the new nail paints and knew I needed them  in my life.

When they finally came out a couple of weeks ago at the end of January/start of February I picked up two shades that I had been lusting after.

I’ve been using this on and off since then and it’s definitely something I will wear loads when the spring and summer months hit us! Of course I had to share my love of these through a review.

I picked these up on an offer in Superdrug. If you spent £7 you would get a free Strobe Cream. WOOHOO! Even though I don’t wear highlighter I’ll definitely use this over liquid lipsticks to give them a pop! Otherwise these cost me £3.99 each, which for a nail paint is a really good price in my mind.

Under The Sea nail paint is a duo chrome nail polish that shifts in colour in the light. There are currently four shades to choose from, I picked up two of them.

Butterflyfish on the left and Jellyfish on the right.

Butterflyfish

Butterflyfish not in direct light

There’s Angelfish (a pearly pink shade which shifts to silver), Pinktail (a pink shade which shifts to orange), Butterflyfish (a blue shade which shifts to pink) and Jellyfish (a purple shade which shifts to green). The latter two are the shades I picked up.

Before I talk about the shades themselves and how the formula works, I want to quickly touch on the design of the bottle lids. Barry M aren’t really OTT when it comes to their packaging designs for their nail paints and that isn’t exactly a bad thing. Good looking products are always a must, especially if you keep them in your handbag and show them off when out and about. But who takes nail paints out with them? 😛

These however are aesthetically pleasing to look at when they’re in your nail polish collections! They have a white lid with metallic blue sea designs on them, which includes seaweed, starfish, seahorses and fish. Very cute! It also makes them easy to find when looking in your collection for these to dig out and use!

Now that I’ve briefly spoken about the design of the nail paints themselves, I’ll go into the formula and look of the polishes when worn!

One thing I love about the Molten Metals collection is how thick the brushes are for them all and this is the same when it comes to the Under The Sea nail paints too! It means you don’t need to keep applying loads of little coats with a thinner brush. Instead you only need one or two strokes of colour applied, which is great! I have small nails so this means I only need two or three max.

The pigmentation of this isn’t anything “amazing” but it definitely does the job of being a lovely iridescent polish, no matter how sheer! The colour shift still works with one and two coats as well, although I do prefer three coats to give it a stronger pigmentation to the colour.

Butterflyfish – one coat

Jellyfish – one coat

I find with this polish that you can get away with one dip into the bottle to get a good finish all over, but due to how sheer it is on the first coat I found I dipped into the bottle a couple of times, just to ensure I had enough on the brush to give an even coat all over the nail. I found throughout all coats of polish that I had to keep dipping into the bottle to make sure I had enough on the brush to get enough on the nail. This was a tad disappointing, but so worth it!

Butterflyfish – two coats

Jellyfish – two coats

With a second coat you really start to get a good colour payoff and pigmentation! As I said before however, I do prefer three coats of polish when it comes to these polishes. I just love a strong look to the nail, especially now I can wear nail polish alllllll the time. 😛

Butteflyfish – three coats

Butterflyfish – three coats

Butterflyfish – showing the pink duo chrome effect

Jellyfish – three coats

Jellyfish – three coats

Jellyfish – showing the green duo chrome

I’ve seen people posting on Instagram of them using these polishes over different coloured polishes including black, white and shades with the same base shade(s) as the polish in use. For example people used a light blue cream shade with Butterflyfish over the top. It looked gorgeous! I’ll definitely be giving this a go myself with a black polish underneath!

NOW with the chip test! I never use a base or a top coat and this is for a few reasons… 1. I don’t own one right now and 2. Every time I ever do or have my polish never dries and doesn’t look good after a while.

I wore both of these shades to work and after four days they started to chip. This wasn’t a bad amount of days really considering I type loads at work, write a lot and do bits and pieces around the office. I also found that cleaning the bathroom after applying these polishes lasted REALLY WELL! I was pleasantly surprised!

Overall what do I think of these nail paints then? Well, they’re bloody stunning and I love them so much! They’re definitely going to do well throughout spring and summer this year and this type of finish with nail paints and polishes is on the rise!

Jellyfish on the left, Butterflyfish on the right.

I can’t decide which of the two shades I love the most though to be honest! Out of the two I love the look of Jellyfish the most, but when wearing them I feel like I look at Butterflyfish more! I couldn’t tell you really to be honest. I think they’re both gorgeous in different ways! Butterflyfish seems more shimmery to me, whilst Jellyfish is more metallic looking. Either way, they’re both gorgeous! Fuck it, I can’t pick one!

If you do want to pick one up for yourself, you can find them on Barry M Cosmetics official website!

What do you think? Have you given the Under The Sea nail paints a go, or do you want to? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

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

Wish List Wednesday – Work/Office Wear

I don’t feel like I’ve done a wish list Wednesday for ages and I’ve really missed doing it! Expect loads with Christmas coming up, as I’ll be working on present ideas for all sorts, which I should be teaming up with Sarah over at Raiin Monkey to do some posts on!

With my new job I recently went on a mini shopping trip to pick up some bits and pieces as I had pretty much sod all! You can read about what I picked up here. I’m already craving some new pieces though and I won’t be able to grab anything for a while, so I thought I would take the opportunity to do a wish list of what goodies I want.

  • New Look Black Velvet Skater Skirt – £12.99 (link)

On my recent haul I picked up the normal black skater skirt and it’s so comfortable so now I want the velvet version! It’ll definitely be really nice to wear throughout the winter, especially with a nice mustard jumper and a red shirt. It’s also a really decent price too, which you can’t moan about!

  • Killstar Wicca Flats – £44.99 (link)

I don’t really need a new pair of flats as I have a pretty much brand new pair that I bought for my graduation 2 years ago! Now I wear them for work and they’re okay, but they’re not the best to be honest. They’re a little bit too big for me and I can’t drive in them. I want a new pair of flats to just wear casually anyway in and outside of work and I’ve had my eyes on these for a while! I won’t be paying full price for them as for flats they’re really expensive, but if they’re on offer I’ll soon pick them up.

  • Her Universe Studio Ghibli Kiki’s Delivery Service Jiji & Lili Town Pattern Blouse – $44.90, currently $35.92 (link)

This is a brand I’ve recently discovered and it’s so damn amazing! I’d know about it through Hot Topic for a while but never realised it was a brand until I was gathering items for this post. It was actually Vikki over at Cuteek who linked me to Her Universe when I was asking on Twitter about work clothing. There really are some great pieces for work on the website and I wish I could afford this shirt right now. One day it WILL be mine! It’s part of the Studio Ghibli designs and this one is of the cats Jiji and Lili Town from Kiki’s Delivery Service. This was one of the first Studio Ghibli movies I watched so I have a place in my heart for Kiki and Jiji. This shirt would be really nice to wear with a black skater skirt and boots.

  • Killstar Santeria Distress Knit Tunic – £49.99, currently £24.99 (link)

Another Killstar item and this one is a knitted tunic. Killstar do gothic pieces, some of them can definitely be wearable and this is one of them. It’s just a basic tunic pretty much but it looks so snug and comfortable! I’d team it with leggings and boots or flats. I wish I could grab it whilst it’s on sale, but sadly I doubt I’ll be able to. This being said though, this has been on sale for quite some time, so fingers crossed! My only concern with this is I would worry the knit wouldn’t feel nice to the touch, I’d hate that so much!

  • EMP Jawbreaker Fishnet Collar Dress – £41.99 (link)

This dress is so expensive and it makes my bank account hurt. BUT it’s also gorgeous and definitely the style I’ve been after for my new job… Just with normal sleeves instead of fishnet. I’m not going to complain though as it’s gorgeous! I will wait for it to drop in price though as for what it is, nearly £42 is a bit too much for my liking, but again when this goes in the sale I’ll definitely pick it up!

  • Hot Topic Her Universe Studio Ghibli Spirited Away Confetti Wrap Dress – $49.90, currently $39.92 (link)

Another Studio Ghibli piece by Her Universe and it’s one I would love to have for work! My favourite Studio Ghibli film and one of my favourite films is Spirited Away so anything to do with that film is always something I want to own if I can. I’d love to be able to own a dress with Haku on as he’s my favourite, but I love No Face just as much! Like the Kiki’s Delivery shirt, it would be lovely to be able to wear a piece like this for work and on days off to show my love of the Studio Ghibli movies.

  • Sainsbury’s TU Navy Checked Print Wide Leg Trousers – £20.00 (link)

I actually came across these on one of my work breaks last week! I was looking for some plain t-shirts to pick up for work as Sainbury’s do some really nice ones for good prices! Instead I ended up finding these tartan looking trousers, which are wide leg. They’re elasticated like the houndstooth ones I picked up from New Look, so I definitely need them in my life! I’d team these with a cream or mustard yellow jumper.

So those are the pieces I’ve been eyeing up to buy for work! I know it sounds incredibly sad, but I’m still so happy with my new job and I know it’s going to be so dangerous now I can wear my own uniform! I can wear nice clothes, so it’s going to be a constant excuse for me to buy a pretty dress. 😛

Do you work in an office? If so where do you get your pieces for work? Please leave me links below as I would love some ideas of where to shop for things!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you week is going well!

November Wish List ’17

Only this wish list now and the next two will be Christmas and birthday ones, how crazy is that?! I’m actually a mixture of excited and bleh about Christmas at the moment and sadly this is due to money issues. That being said due to that this months wish list is going to be full of stuff I won’t be buying… BOO YOU WHORE!

Due to this, this months list isn’t a big one either and I actually really struggled with putting it together. I honestly wish I had money… 😦

  • Yuri!!! On Ice Logo Cardigan – £41.99, currently £24.99 (link)

I eyed up this cardigan on Crunchyroll ages ago but I didn’t quite like the price of it, but recently I saw it for sale on EMP and not only would it work out cheaper due to no import charges, but also it’s on sale at the moment which is always a good thing! I nearly bought this a couple of weeks ago but left it due to lack of monies. I love Yuri!!! On Ice, it’s such a heartwarming and lovely anime so it’d be lovely to own a piece of merchandise from the anime. I especially love the little pork cutlet bowl on the bottom of it. They would be great for layering up during the winter months!

  • Kat Von D Sinner’ Lipstick & Fragrance Travel Duo – £24.00, currently £21.60 (link)

I’ve been after the Sinner liquid lipstick shade by Kat Von D as it’s a gorgeous dark purple shade but I don’t know if it’ll come out as it’s own shade, or if it’ll always be a little limited edition style shade that comes in this travel duo. I’m not massively after this set, just the liquid lipstick so I wouldn’t want to pay nearly £25.00 for it.

  • Ohayou Clothing! Sweet ‘Vee T-Shirt – £17.99 (link)

I love Ohayou Clothing! they’re definitely my favourite independent store right now and one I recently picked up a new varsity jacket from! It has a cute Umbreon on, which just makes me really happy. So when Chrissy came out with this kawaii Eevee design I just fell in love with it! She’s so adorable playing with her 3DS and eating Pocky! I’d love this design on a sweater instead, but I feel like this tee would have a lovely relaxed feel to it and would work perfect with leggings or tucked into a skirt.

  • Bershka Oversized Kurt Cobain Sweatshirt – £29.99 (link)

I saw this sweatshirt when I was in Fuerteventura and immediately fell in love with it! I didn’t buy it due to how heavy it was and also the fact that I could pick it up in the UK for the exact same price. It’d be great to wear with thick tights in the colder months and Dr Martens boots or even brothel creepers. I’d love to pick this up before my birthday to wear for then, but I may try and wait to pick it up in any sales… £30.00 is a decent price, but of course if I can get it cheaper, I’ll damn well try! 😛

  • Elodie The Unicorn Ramen Bowl – £24.99 (link)

When I saw that Firebox was stocking this ramen bowl I was seriously overjoyed! This bowl is by Smoko a company whose designs are so adorable and I would honestly buy them all if I could afford it! 😛 I remember eyeing up this bowl on their recent Kickstarter campaign, but due to how expensive it was going to cost me to buy AND ship the item(s) I wanted to back I left it. Now that Firebox is stocking it I know for a fact now that I can pick it up without worrying about paying loads of shipping as well as import! I love ramen and although I prefer to cook it “properly” it would be nice to have a cute little unicorn to eat it out of. 😛

  • Loungefly x Pokemon Eevee Mini Backpack – $78.00 AUS (link)

The final item on this list is the one I REALLY want but it is literally impossible to get right now… Not even due to money but because it would appear it’s an Australia exclusive… WHICH SUCKS! It’s hard enough being able to get hold of the Loungefly x Pokemon merchandise as it is, without making it even HARDER! So the only way I would get hold of this bag is by someone in Australia buying and shipping it over for  me… Which sadly won’t ever happen! It’s just an adorable little backpack in a mint green shade, which is covered in little Eevee’s! I love the Eeveelutions so you can’t really go wrong with this backpack if you’re a Pokemon fan!

So those are my wish list items for this month! I know it’s nothing exciting, but to be honest most of the stuff I want I’ve either spoken about or I’ve popped on my Christmas wish list for Dane… He’s my personal Father Christmas! 😀

What items 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 and I hope you have a lovely weekend!
