April Wish List β€˜21

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely bank holiday so far. At the time of writing this, I’m really excited for my Easter roast that I’m cooking with Dane as well as our chocolate eggs. I’m also planning to cook some mini egg brownies or cupcakes and send half over to my parents and keep half ourselves. I’m not sure which to bake yet, but brownies are looking to be the choice at the moment. I’d buy some cream too to pour over the top, or maybe some custard? OOFT!

Anyhoo… Enough of yummy food. This months wish list pretty much contains items I’ve bought/pre-ordered or hoping to pre-order VERY soon. I’m still looking to be on a spending ban in April because I’m finding it really handy to keep track of what I’ve bought and when, as well as WHY I’ve bought something.

An example of this being March. At the start of the new spending ban month, Black Milk Clothing had brought out their second Pokemon collection and I know I wanted to pick up a few pieces from it. They’re both limited and wouldn’t be brought back, so I bought them. I think items that are limited edition, or rare items found on eBay are acceptable within reason.

Another example, I found one of my holy grail Loungefly bags and it wasn’t cheap. It was a reasonable price considering, but not cheap. I’d seen a piece from Black Milk Clothing’s latest collection (The Thirteenth Tarot) that I wanted to buy, as well as a piece from the first Pokemon collection in the sale. I haven’t bought these pieces due to buying the bag. Granted, I didn’t need any of these things but… I wanted the bag.

Anyway, I digress! I’m really excited to talk about the items on my wish list this month. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing this months wish list post! πŸ˜€

  • Oyasai Fairy and Manabu Vegetable Knowledge Book by PonkichiM (link)

This is something I didn’t think I’d ever own, even though I really wanted it. PonkichiM is a Japanese artist I discovered well over a year ago now thanks to Twitter and now I’m able to own their art book which is full of their cute vegetable animal hybrids that the artist calls faeries. I told my friend Emily (who I met through Instagram) about PonkichiM a while ago and she fell in love with the artists designs too, which did not surprise me! So, when Emily told me she was going to order the knowledge/art book from Amazon Japan and wondered if I wanted one. I jumped on it and when it arrived at hers I paid her for it. πŸ™‚ Her boyfriend was kind enough to bring it over and post through the letter box and it’s GORGEOUS! I’ll be showing this off in my April favourites later this month for sure. πŸ™‚

  • Loungefly x Sanrio Pompompurin Mini Backpack and Purse

I decided to merge these two items together as I have a STORY to tell in regards! So, I’d pre-ordered both of these items through Geekcore and they were both due to come out in April. However earlier this week I received an email saying that this and a few other designs had been cancelled in the UK due to failing quality control… Which sucked. I’d not exactly had the best day so to hear this news was devastating to me… 😦 I’ve had a full refund and I’ve pre-ordered through an America seller I’ve bought from before. I don’t 100% know when these will be out, but I hope sooner rather than later as I cannot wait for these to arrive. They’re gorgeous fluffy bags and of course feature my favourite Sanrio character, Pompompurin. I do feel I’ve paid far too much now to get him into my life, but I guess it’s… Kind of worth it… :’)

  • Kaymiibo Animal Crossing Sanrio Homemade/Custom Amiibo (link)

I do feel bad buying fake amiibo cards, but at the same time I don’t when Nintendo is pissing their UK fans about. There. I said it. We were all told by Nintendo UK the end of March, but the worldwide release was the 26th March, which we assumed would be the same here. I waited all day to order a pack of cards, as did others, but nothing dropped. I started to come to a realisation that IF the cards had of come out that day, I probably wouldn’t have gotten any anyway, due to the fact SO many people want to get a packet of these cards, as well as scalpers trying to snag them too. So, I decided to buy some of the custom made ones and when the real cards released, I’d get those too. You know what? Nintendo UK decided to release the cards on the last day of March, without much warning and they sold out quickly, with some cancellations and refunds given to people by Nintendo due to overselling. I know they also released some more packs on the 1st April. I missed both drops and was gutted. I have some big plans for my Sanrio cards and items, which I’m so excited about!

  • Pokemon Center Nickit Plush

If there was one Pokemon from Sword and Shield that I fell in love with and called my favourite from that gen, it’s Nickit. The cute little fox Pokemon that specialises in dark moves. I just fell in love and caught one as soon as I could in the game. Sadly it didn’t follow me all the way to the end, but for the start of my journey in Shield, it did me good. I’d waited patiently for a Nickit plush to come to the Pokemon Center and FINALLY it is time! I’ve pre-ordered my plush through YY Kawaii (Instagram – yykawaiimerch1) which I’m excited to have arrive in the upcoming months! Make sure to use code “YYCOFFEE10” to snag 10% off of the website!

  • Nintendo Switch New Pokemon Snap (link)

Finally we have a game I’m SUPER excited to see come out at the end of the month and that is the New Pokemon Snap game coming to Switch! I never got to play the original Pokemon Snap on Nintendo 64 as I never owned one and neither did any of my friends. I always have a fond memory of going to Dixons with my dad and running to the back of the shop to play on the N64 that was set up at the back of the shop withΒ Pokemon SnapΒ inside that you could play. I never got the chance to play it every time I ran to the back of the shop, because there was always a kid, or at least a group of siblings stood there hogging it. So, this coming out will be like a part of my childhood I missed out on. πŸ™‚ Eventually I’ll snag the Pikachu N64 ANDΒ Pokemon Snap so I can play it myself, at home, without the worry of some selfish kids preventing me. πŸ˜›

So there we have it guys, that is my wish list for April and I feel like I’m already skint. πŸ˜›

I’m so excited for April, Easter break so far has been amazing, I’m looking forward to my roast and Easter eggs, as well as Dane’s birthday in a couple of weeks time. πŸ™‚

What do you guys have on your wish lists for April? As well as if plans you may have for April too? Let me know in the comments. πŸ™‚

Until next time all, take care and HAPPY EASTER! πŸ˜€

February Wish List ’21

I honestly can’t quite believe it’s February already… 2021 is already flying by and it only feels like yesterday that I was going back to work after the Christmas/New Year break!

I have to be honest here and say, I am on a spending ban! I spent a lot of money before Christmas and I suffered during January due to it. It’s not all bad though as it means I can save up for stuff in the future, especially things to do with my house!

Some of the items on this months wish list I’ve pre-ordered, with one item arriving already which is pretty good! Seriously though guys I’m on a MAJOR spending ban this morning and I might even do it going into March as well, just to try and save lots of money to do stuff to the house. πŸ™‚

  • Kittynaut Soot Sprite Enamel Pin (link)

I really love Kittynaut’s designs, especially the Studio Ghibli related ones. I really like the look of this Soot Sprite enamel pin, which reminds me of a collar pin. The Soot Sprites look so cute and happy with their sugar candy! I’d love to wear this with a shirt on the colour to add something different, or maybe even on a sweater on the neck. I’m definitely going to look in ordering this via their Etsy in the future!

  • Razer Base Station V2 Chroma in Quartz (link)

I mentioned in my monthly favourites that I recently picked up the Razer Kraken Quartz gaming headset and I LOVE IT! I don’t just use it for work, I use it for personal too whilst playing games with friends, D&D sessions with friends and also phone calls with friends via Discord and Messenger. At the moment when I’m not using the headset I wrap the cord around it and keep it on our shared desk. In the future I would really love the Razer Base Station in the matching Quartz colour as not only would it be able to hold my headset on the desk, but it also looks like you can have some USB items plugged into it too, due to the ports at the base. This isn’t something I would buy soon, I’d prefer to wait a while, especially if I can get my own desk in the future.

  • Persona 5 Strikers PS4 (link)

To think when I was in Japan in January 2020, this game was coming out late February 2020. There were no talks of it coming out in the UK and people worried we wouldn’t get it. I knew we would deep down and it’s FINALLY coming out in the UK at the end of February! I made sure to get my copy pre-ordered so I don’t miss out. I pre-ordered from Gamersheek as they have the BEST game prices out there! Plus, if you see a game cheaper elsewhere, but would prefer to buy with Gamersheek, they’ll match the price for you. They’re my go to for games in 2021! Honestly I am really excited for Persona 5 Strikers, but I am disappointed the name “Persona 5 Scramble” wasn’t kept like how it is overseas. If you’d like to read a review all about Gamersheek, make sure to check out this post from last year where I spoke aboutΒ Persona 5: Royal.

  • MartithArt Foxtober Throw Blanket (link)

I’ve had my eye on this blanket for quite a while now and I’d still love to get it but meh spending ban. πŸ˜› I love foxes and I love being snuggly and warm so this blanket is perfect for me. MartithArt appears to have created this during “Foxtober” which I can assume is a drawing challenge for October. The designs are gorgeous and the size of this blanket looks like it would be perfect to pop on my lap whilst working at the desk to keep snug and warm. I’ll definitely pick this up in the future, but not yet due to spending ban.

  • Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Kōrin Kimono Ver. (link)

This is an Nendoroid figure I pre ordered MONTHS ago through YY Kawaii (yykawaiimerch1 on Instagram). I saw it and I knew I had to have it quite frankly. We only own one Miku Nendoroid figure, which is the snowboarding Miku from back in 2016. As Dane is a snowboarder (and I’ve done a little!) we knew we had to get her! However, with the kimono version she just looked so pretty and it sort of reminded us of our Japan holiday too from January 2020. I’m already unsure where she’s going to go once she arrived, but I’m tempted to have her in the office so I can look at her whilst I work. She’s due to arrive in February! Would you guys like to see her reviewed on my blog or Instagram page? Let me know. πŸ™‚

  • Pin & Tonic Sakura Fox T-Shirt (link)

Pin & Tonic is an independent UK artist/store that I’ve always seen floating around social media in the past and eventually followed. I recently got wind of their fox and tanuki/raccoon designs AND a sale on their store, so I went to check them out. I stumbled across this sakura fox t-shirt and have fallen in love with the design! It’s the perfect mixture of my favourite animal, my favourite tree and sakura reminding me of Japan too! I would love to pick this up in the future, as it would be lovely to wear. The colours work so well!

  • Bravissimo Flora Bralette (link)

This is the final item on my monthly wish list and one item that has arrived. This is by far one of my favourite purchases of 2021 so far (spoiler alert, I’ll be talking about it in February’s favourites!) as it’s the most comfortable bra I’ve ever bought! I bought quite a few new bras at the start of 2021 as I knew I was due some new ones, I opted for an old favourite, as well as a new design. I love both, but since working from home wearing a bra all the time is something I’ve… Not… Done… Just being honest! I’ll be honest, I’m not a small busted lady anymore so sometimes my boobs just need a break from the wire, especially if I’m sat at my desk all day and potentially slumping and uncomfortable etc. I’d heard nothing but good things about non-wired bras, but never understood the appeal. I decided to get one myself after seeing good reviews about the flora bralette from Bravissimo. It’s amazing and when payday comes at the end of the month I will be buying another. I’m not going to talk too much here as I want to talk more about it at the end of the month. πŸ™‚

Anyhoo, those are the items I have on my wish list for February! As I’ve said various times throughout this post, I am on a spending ban this month so I’m going to be good. I may even continue it into March, but that won’t stop me from creating another wish list next month! πŸ˜€

What do you all have on your wish lists for February? Make sure to let me know in the comments below!

Until next time all, take care and stay safe. πŸ™‚

Birthday/January Wish List ’21

Happy New Year guys! I hope you all have a great New Years, even if it involved you staying it. Not going to lie, some of my best New Year celebrations have been in my own, or someone else’s home.

At the time of writing this we are three days into 2021 and so far so good. I’m back at work tomorrow (4th January) and I feel rested after doing next to sod all the past eleven days and whilst I’d like some more time off, I do feel like being back at work will start to give me stuff to do again during the day.

As well as heading back to work, my birthday is also looming (6th January) and I’m going to be turning 31… I wasn’t arsed about turning 30 last year, but for some reason adding one more year to that has kind of deflated me a little. πŸ˜›

2021 is going to be a year where I start to experiment and “live” a little more. I want to do more with my resin making hobby, including starting to create pieces to sell! I’m also toying with starting to do gaming/chat streams over on Twitch… We shall see as this is a big step.

I’ve not set any resolutions for 2021 but I have said I’d like to read more manga, as well as continue with doing my Beatsaber VR workouts. My mom also bought me a bread maker for Christmas so I’ll be making more bread in 2021 too!

I’m not going to do the whole, “things will be better in 2021!” because I’m happy to take it as it comes. If it’s similar to 2020 with the way COVID has been… Then so be it. As long as I can be safe in my home with Dane and talk to my friends and family via Facetime, Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger, then so be it!

As it is my birthday in a few days I wanted the first post of 2021 to be a wish list post, with goodies I’d like to pick up/receive for my birthday… Mostly goodies I’d buy myself, especially considering two of the items are this list are things I’ve either pre-ordered or ordered. πŸ˜›

So, I hope you’re ready to see lots of kawaii goodies! πŸ˜€

  • Her Universe Kiki’s Delivery Service Jiji Hoodies Cardigan (link)

I verrry much doubt I’ll get this for my birthday or with my own money. I’ve spent so much money before Christmas panic buying from American independent artists and with a 6 week wait until payday, I’m kinda poor this month. πŸ˜› However, I really love this hooded cardigan by Her Universe that I had to mention it this month! I live in cardigans, especially when I’m actually working in the office so I’m always on the hunt for new ones that express who I am, whilst being acceptable to wear. I don’t know if this one would be, but it’s gorgeous. I’d wear it with my tartan trousers, as well as skater skirts and leggings. I’ve never ordered from Hot Topic before, has anyone in the UK before? Please share your experience for the future! However, I may do a big Her Universe order in the future… πŸ˜‰

  • The Sad Ghost Club book by Lize Meddings (link)

I’m a MASSIVE fan of The Sad Ghost Club and view it daily on my Instagram account. The Sad Ghost Club is described as “a club for anyone who’s ever felt sad or lost. It’s the club for those who don’t feel like they’re part of any other club.” and for years it really has helped me when my anxiety and depression are bad and I need to feel less alone. I’ve even sent the page to friends to follow to see if it helps them to feel less alone too. It was announced back in October 2020 and I pre-ordered it as soon as I saw it landed on Amazon. I haven’t read much in 2020 and plan to change that in 2021. I want to spend more time away from technology and with my head in a good manga/novel/comic, including this one. πŸ™‚

  • Pokemon Center Fit Plushie – Dragonite (link) Save 10% from YY Kawaii’s website with the code “YYCOFFEE10”

If there is one plushie I wish I could have picked up last year (as if it’s been a year guys…) when I was in Japan, it’s the Dragonite fit plushie from the Pokemon Center. It wasn’t available to buy whilst we were there and I was gutted. Dragonite is one of my favourite Pokemon and I always have one in my party in the games. I currently have a level 100 Dragonite on Pokemon Shield. πŸ˜› Anyway, I finally bit the bullet and reached out to YY Kawaii about ordering on with her. It should arrive in January and I can’t wait to add it to my collection! I’m planning to keep it on the top of my plushie shelf alongside the plushies I bought in Japan.

  • Pokemon Mew Funko Pop (link)

I just want to get this out there that the link I’ve attached (Double Boxed Toys) has sold out of this figure…BUT I haven’t found it elsewhere for sale in the UK yet… Anyway, I REALLY need this funko pop in my life! Like Dragonite, Mew is one of my favourite Pokemon and whilst I don’t own or really want any of the Pokemon funko pops, I really want this one. I think it’s a pop I would take out of the box and keep on my plushie shelf alongside all my Japanese goodies. Otherwise, I’d keep it in the box eventually for the day I can have my own desk at home to keep it on. πŸ˜›

  • Animal Crossing Mega Isabelle Plush/Pillow (link)

This is something I keep wanting to pick up… But I keep thinking about money too. As many of my regular readers and friends know, I LOVE Animal Crossing and have done since I first discovered it in 2008 when I played Wild World. With New Horizons releasing, a lot of Animal Crossing merchandise has come out in the UK which is amazing. One of these items includes this amazing Isabelle plush/pillow that I really need in my life! It’s not a bad price currently on the website/store I’ve linked and I do keep umming and ahhing about picking it up. I’m going to wait and see my birthday pass in a couple of days and then toy with whether to order it. It’s available at loads of places so it’s not like it’s going to sell out and then I’ll never get it. πŸ˜›

  • Stami Studios Whale Texting Enamel Pins (link)

Finally we have some enamel pins to talk about. To be honest with you all, I think 2021 is the year where I need to have a declutter of my enamel pins, as well as stop buying so many! I’m actually toying with selling some soon. Let me know in the comments if this is something you’d be interested in seeing. I have quite a few Pokemon themed ones I’m contemplating selling. ANYHOO I’ve really fallen in love with Stami Studios designs this year and some that she has released of late have given me some nostalgic feels. Whale texts are something I used to send to my friends all the time back ten plus years ago off my HTC phone. I loved it and I’d love to do it again this year for fun. Due to this, this is why I’m so in love with these designs. You can buy all three designs separately or together. If these are still in stock at the end of January when I get paid, I’m buying these for sure!

So there we have it guys, my monthly wish list for January, as well as my *gulp* 31st birthday.

One of my friends asked me before New Year what I was thinking of doing for my birthday and I had no idea. I knew I wanted to do some baking (currently torn between red velvet cupcakes and a Japanese strawberry shortcake) as my mom’s birthday is the day after mine. So I would be baking for both of our birthday’s really. Alongside that I’m planning to cook some Chinese food for dinner, as well as make some resin goods on Tuesday night that I can continue with on my actual birthday. I’m excited to just have the day with Dane to cook/bake together and do our one hobby together too. πŸ™‚

I’m not gutted about having a lockdown birthday because I don’t know what I would have done out and about anyway! If anything it means when everything has calmed down and we start to go back to “normal” I can do something exciting.

Do you guys have much planned during the third lockdown here in the UK? What items do you have on your wish list for January too? I know we’re all skint at this time of year, so have you bought any sales items? Let me know everything in the comments! I love reading and replying to your comments. πŸ™‚

One more thing to say before I finish this post, I’m taking part in Japanuary over on Instagram! It was created by Cakes With Faces and all you had to do is share a post daily on your social media platform (Instagram for me) with images and some text in relation to the day. I’m really enjoying this challenge so far and it’s keeping my Japan trip alive almost a year on. πŸ™‚

Anyhoo that’s all from me today! I hope you’re all safe and well and 2021 has treated you nice so far. πŸ™‚

Until next time, take care all and Happy New Year!

Christmas 2020 Wish List

Can you believe it’s Christmas Eve already? We all say it don’t we? “This time next year we’ll be doing it all over again!” and here we are. πŸ˜›

Christmas this year is a strange one for all of us. Last year I wasn’t really in the right frame of mind for Christmas, but that was due to the mixture of excitement and nerves about going to Japan in January. My head was just in a space of preparing for the trip. This year at the time of writing this post (a few days prior to Christmas Eve) I’m not feeling festive… Not even with everyone’s (and my own) Christmas presents wrapped up in front of me, ready to be delivered to their homes. It’s obviously due to COVID but I’m hoping come Christmas Day both me and Dane will be feeling festive and merry as we cook our dinner together, drink as much as we feel in the mood for and just enjoy the day together… Which will be a first.

Christmas to me is about showing your loved ones how much they mean to you, and I don’t just mean with gifts. Christmas is a time of celebration and being together as a family, no matter how big or small. This year is different as some people may be on their own at home or with their small family and cannot be with bigger families this year. I’m sad not to see my parents this year, especially my mom after what a rubbish few months we have had. However, we have a plan and we know it’ll work. We’re just going to Facetime each other when we’re due to open each others gifts and have a drink, etc etc. It’ll be good. I’ve already spoken to my mom this evening (I’m not writing this on Christmas Eve!) and we’re happy enough with what we plan to do.

I have to say, my mom has sent two MASSIVE boxes… I wonder what she’s bought me… πŸ˜›

I want to add my yearly reminder here about taking care of yourself over Christmas. It’s really hard for people this year with COVID, but I’ve been there at Christmas where my mind is in a dark place and I’ve needed someone to talk to. You are not alone. I’m going to pop some contacts below for the UK of who you can reach out to this time of year. Please use them if you need to, they’re there to help. Plus, my DM’s are always open on Twitter (maybeecoffee) and Instagram (theremightbecoffeeblog) if you need someone to talk to.

Anyhoo – onto the wish list for this year! I want to add here, whether I received the items mentioned or not, I am always grateful for whatever I do receive. πŸ™‚

  • Yotsubato! Danbo Nendoroid (link)

Since our second Christmas together me and Dane have always bought each other Nendoroid’s for Christmas, which has ranged from just one, to four as the years have gone by. This year isn’t any exception BUT we know what character we’ve bought one another. However, I don’t know if Dane has bought me a surprise one… Which could be Danbo! This is a Nendoroid I was going to buy this when we were in Japan in January but I ended up leaving it. It’s from a manga that I haven’t read but have always meant to. Danbo is a cute cardboard box, but his eyes light up! Very cute and one I would love in my collection. πŸ™‚

  • Firebox/Smoko Tayto the Couch Potato Rechargeable Night Light (link)

Last Christmas and birthday Dane bought me some of the night lights from Smoko/Firebox, a dumpling and a bubble tea. They’re amazing pieces for our bedroom and are really bright. I often pop them on in the evenings when I want to relax and chill out. Plus they’re hella cute! So, when I saw that Firebox had the couch potato variant in stock, I knew I had to ask for it for Christmas this year! This is rechargeable too, whilst the ones he bought me last year need batteries, which is even better! πŸ˜€ I’m hoping he’s bought it me so I can add to my growing collection of kawaii night lights. πŸ˜›

  • Pandora Japanese Akita Inu Dog Charm (link)

I usually ask for Pandora around Christmas and if I don’t ask, I usually get anyway… Usually from my parents. πŸ™‚ I was asked if I wanted any jewellery this year and this is one of the first things that came to mind as it reminded of our mine and Dane’s trip to Japan this year in January. It’s hard to be gifted jewellery this year because, let’s face it… I’ve become a hermit in 2020 due to COVID and jewellery just isn’t something I’ve really worn for most of this year. 😦 This charm is really cute though!

  • Pikachu Resin Mold (link)

As I’ve mentioned briefly on my blog this year, both me and Dane got into working and making resin pieces this year. Something Dane asked me if I wanted as gifts were resin molds, as at the moment I don’t really have many and would love more to experiment and play with! I’ve been after the Pikachu resin mold for a while and it’s one that I definitely added to my Christmas list! I have so many ideas of keyrings I could make and that does include the standard yellow Pikachu we all know and love. πŸ˜›

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid The Complete Series Blu-ray (link)

Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is one of my favourite manga and anime series and it’s thanks to Dane that I actually discovered it when I did. I was having a nose around Amazon and noticed that you can buy the series on Blu-Ray now! :O I know season 2 of the show has been delayed due to what happened to Kyoto Animation in 2019. I would love to receive this for Christmas to binge watch over the festive period, as well as for my birthday less than a week after New Year. I do love receiving anime Blu-Ray for Christmas. πŸ˜›

  • PunfunStudio Eeveelution Heart Shaker Resin Mold Set (link)

The final item I want to mention on my wish list for Christmas time and it’s another resin mold, however this is a set and it’s actually something that arrived today and Dane has given to me early. I sent him the link for this resin mold set that contains all nine of the Eeveelutions (Eevee, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon and Sylveon) holding a heart. These are shaker resin molds though! So when you work on them you can pop some glitter, beads etc inside and then pop oil in, cover with a plastic film to seal everything in place and hey presto! You have a shaker keyring/charm. However, I think I’ll be making dry shaker charms to start off with, just to get used to how they work and such. πŸ™‚

So, that is everything that I added to my Christmas wish list this year! That list would have just been something I gave to Dane to give him ideas for Christmas. I don’t tend to do this for my family, his parents etc. They tend to get me surprises, or ideas Dane has given them.

Whilst I may always show you guys my wish lists for Christmas every year, I always get excited to give my gifts to Dane, my parents and loved ones/friends. I’m excited to see their faces when the get their gifts and tomorrow will be no exception, especially with Dane… Who has been bloody spoilt this year. πŸ˜›

What do you guys have on your wish lists this year for Christmas? Realistic and non realistic. Unicorns can be included. πŸ˜‰

I just want to finish off this blog post by saying – MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all have a lovely day, even with the circumstances and get to see your loved ones online if not in person. πŸ™‚

Until next time all, again Merry Christmas! πŸ™‚

February Wish List ’20

It’s that time of month again where I share with you guys what items I have on my wish list for the month!

Well… After an amazing 2 weeks in Japan last month, I REALLY did struggle to add stuff to my wish list for this month. It wasn’t easy and I had to have a big think about what items I would love to pick up for myself this month… Maybe… If I can afford it after Japan. I also booked my tickets for My Chemical Romance in June, so I am very much skint until payday at the end of the month. πŸ˜›

So please bear in mind, this list may be bland and boring… Or it might be exciting, we shall see!

  • Pandora Disney Lady and the Tramp Heart Dangle Charm (link)

There are no two ways about it, I NEED this charm for my Pandora! It’s funny that Dane bought me the Lady and Tramp charms from Chamilia for Christmas and then BAM, Pandora realise their own charm… Ha. Either way this dangle charm is really cute and perfect for Valentine’s Day, which is only a couple of weeks away now. I’ll definitely be treating myself to this charm, but probably not until payday towards the end of the month. I really hope to see more of my favourite Disney characters from Pandora in the future! A cute little Lucky dalmatian, anyone?

  • Persona 5 Manga Volume 1 (link)

I have been so bloody excited for this manga series to finally hit the UK and it did in January! I did pre-order this through Amazon but again (this isn’t the first time…) they failed to deliver my manga on time, even though other stores have this in stock. So instead I ordered from Wordery… I’m just going to go back to Wordery in regards to ordering my manga. They’re just so much more reliable. ANYWAY! I’m excited for this to arrive now so I can read it. I know I’ll be waiting ages for the volumes to hit the UK, but I don’t care – it’ll be worth it!

  • Mango Mom Slim Jeans (link)

I bought these jeans just before I went on holiday to Japan and oh my… They have really changed my life! πŸ˜› I know that sounds dramatic, but honestly I do love these jeans. I bought them a size bigger too after trying them on as I wanted some jeans that were mom style, but baggy and comfortable. These are clearly too big for me, so much so I need to wear a belt to keep them from falling down haha. This being said, I still love these and I already know I want to pick up another pair. I need to venture to town soon so I intend on picking up another pair of these then with some birthday money I still have in my purse.

  • FoxLeap Lady and the Tramp Lady Pups and Scamp and Angel Enamel Pins (link) and (link)

I’ve already pre-ordered these to be honest with you… I just had to. I love FoxLeap’s enamel pins and I especially loved the Lady and The Tramp one that I backed in their Kickstarter campaign last year (which you can see and read about here). The quality of the pin is amazing, let alone how gorgeous the design is. Lady and The Tramp is my favourite Disney movie, so I just had to order the Lady Pups and Scamp and Angel pins too… It would be rude not to! πŸ˜€ If you would like to see a review of these once they arrive, please let me know!

  • Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Limited Edition Console (link)

Literally this morning as I write up this blog post (31st January), Nintendo FINALLY announced a Switch console to coincide with Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Fuck. I always said if Nintendo dropped an Animal Crossing Switch, I would buy… Of course I really want to buy this but Dane has a Switch and I have a Switch Lite… So it’s tricky. I keep thinking in my head how I could have it for at home in our bedroom to play games on – but the problem there is that you can have multiple saves across multiple consoles, which in itself sucks! I’m so badly torn as to whether to pick up this Switch or not. I love my Switch Lite and I definitely wouldn’t replace it. It’s light weight, easy to travel with and it’s cute! BUT I AM ALSO SO DAMN TORN! 😦

I know this isn’t a long wish list this month, but honestly this is all I could think of! As I mentioned at the start of the post, due to just getting back from Japan I now own a LOT of stuff and I’m feeling the pinch a little due to it. However, there are still things I would love to buy come payday. πŸ˜›

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 all, take care and I hope you’re having a great week so far. πŸ™‚
