Fighting Evil By Moonlight, Winning Love By Daylight... SAILOR MOON!

Hey guys, some of you may already know but in the last year or so I have slowly been getting into Anime and Manga. My boyfriend introduced me to the world of anime and manga when we first started going out as he is very passionate about it. I always thought it was just darn right weird stuff, but he showed me the cute and funny side and I have grown to really enjoy it. My favourites being Chobits and Clannad (tears were shed!). 
Now recently I have started to read a bit of manga, and how confused was I when first started with the reading the wrong way and from right to left (I think that is right). Apart from card captor I also decided to give Sailor Moon a go. Now I have to admit I was kind of put off reading and watching sailor moon at first as everyone seems to love it.. yes I know weird reason! But after discovering an old waterstones voucher in an old handbag and it steal being in date I picked up the first two sailor moon manga's.
When I flicked through them in store and discovered CATS I knew instantly that I would like them (crazy cat lady much?). I have read book one and two and thoroughly enjoyed them and have book three which I am about to start. I am not going to say anything about the storyline cause I don't want to give away anything... plus sailor moon is a fairly big thing so lots of people know about it.
As soon as I started reading the Manga's I was instantly on Amazon hunting down the DVD's then got hurt by the prices... erm OW!! Anyway I found a way of getting hold of the first season and I am now on episode 9 and yes... I am in love with the series. Its fun and girly and not too deep, an easy watch and nice to sit down in the evenings and chill with.

So now I have discovered a love for sailor moon I thought I would share with you a wish list of sailor moon related items I WANT!!
Sailor Moon!

A Few Of My Favourite Things... Loose powder Foundation

Hey guys! Today I am starting a little series called "a few of my favourite things" where I will be showing you items I really enjoy and recommend. These will be mini reviews and will include all sorts of products that are not just make up but sometimes apps, books and things like that. I hope to do one of these post once a week so hope you enjoy the first one!

Sorry just had to include my Zoella make up bag,,, isn't it just adorable. Now to the product..

Today's product as the title suggest is a loose powder foundation. Now I don't always wear make up on a day to day basis as for work to be honest I just can't be bothered to apply make up! But I found this product is super easy to apply and pretty much feels like your not wearing make up!
Avon Calming Effects Loose Powder foundation is priced at £10.50 but can be often be bought for the bargain price of just £6, always worth keep checking the offers for it. 
I apply it with my real techniques brush ( I will be reviewing them soon too) and it applies easily and gives a fairly good coverage. I have never had that good of skin and its only as I have got older my skin is finally improving and not getting so many nasty spots. The avon loose powder covers what it needs to cover without looking flaky and gives a nice natural look. 
I wear the colour Ivory as well I am pale haha, but when first went to order I was weary as we all know pictures of colours etc in a book does not really give you much to go by, but ask your avon representative and they will happily source out a sample for you or recommend the correct colour. 

Hope you enjoyed the mini review if there is anything you think I can add to the mini reviews them please comment below.

Winter Boots!

Untitled #11

Hey guys, I am currently on hunt for a nice pair of comfy winter boots, these need to look cute with dresses as that's what I wear 99% of the time! So thought I would share with you today some boots I am been eyeing up... I get paid in a couple weeks time and intend to get myself some, so here are a few of the ones I have looked at. Hope you enjoy and of course I will show you what boots I go for when I come to get some.

These are cute little ankle boots... I like the two colours of these makes them a little more interesting. Also these don't look too chunky so will look nice with dresses. I personally don't like chunky boots with dresses its not a look I got for. Some people make it look really good though!

I really like these but not so much the price, the reason being I bought a pricey pair of boots last year and they did not last long at all and pretty much are useless now. These are in the sale from £45 to £30 but I only spotted them online and need to see these in person. I love the buckle type detail.

I do love these boots, but I find with new look shoes I struggle with sizes one size is either too big... or one is too small, never just right. Again the buckle detail is what drew me to these!

Nothing beats a good pair of chelsea boots, I like the little heal on these but to be honest I think they may be a little too plain. 

I REALLY like these, they look way more expensive than they are and are super cute. These are my favourites at the moment.

Hope you enjoyed the post, sorry its a sort one but work is mad at the moment!

A Gift From A Friend

Hey guys, first thing I want to say is that I got this box quite a while ago and have been meaning to do this post so better late than never!
One of my closest friends moved to live with her boyfriend and we spent a lot of time together and was super sad to see her go! But we stay in contact and talk nearly everyday haha, but we came up  with the idea to send each other a box of goodies every now and then. Full of little things we know the other person was like. So here I have my first box of goodies... if you would like to see what I got her then CLICK HERE and you will go to her blog with the post of what I got her.

First item I opened was this little mermaid figure, she knows little mermaid is pretty much my favourite film of all time! Its quite funny as I sent her a little mermaid item too!

Next up was some loom bands, we had been discussing how these have become the "in" thing and I said I hadn't tried them out yet so she sent a bag so I can make myself a little bracelet! 

Here we have a sleep mask, I sometimes find it really hard to sleep if a little light is on or something is flashing. So this will add to my little collection of sleep masks! Have to add this one is super soft.

Three items here, A little H keyring with a floral design, a cute spotty mirror (very useful) and lastely a little ID holder. She know I get the bus daily for work and I moaned once I needed to get something to hold my monthly ticket and this little ID holder is perfect.

Another set of three items grouped together as all the same design. Here we have a notebook and pen with a cute London design, I shall add I got this just before mine and Rohan's trip to London. Also a nail file... as I ALWAYS moan I never have one when I need it.

This super pretty scarf is awesome I really like the colours in it and actually wore this one today on my way to work. Its fairly thin but perfect for this time of year.

Now have to admit when I first saw this I was like oooh its small. I am not a small bag person at all. But I have to eat my words, I have used this bag LOADS since getting it. It goes with everything ideal if just going to the cinema... or popping to the shops. I LOVE it! Plus I have a thing for polka dots at the moment.

And last is a sofia the first dvd, this made me chuckle! Me and her are both Disney mad so this was a little fun gift! 

Hope you enjoyed seeing what I got in my little box, do any of your friends swap gifts or have you done a box swap before ?

Hatsune miku - inspired !

Hatsune Miku appeared on the David Letterman show VERY recently. As I am a big fan of vocaloid I decided to create an outfit inspired by her, I hope you enjoy it.

Hatsune miku - inspired !

Hatsune Miku is from vocaloid, she is a 16 yr old girl known for her bright turquoise hair. I discovered her while playing a game called project diva f on my boyfriends ps3. It's a very addictive rhythm game and I really cannot get enough of it. The vocaloid songs tend to be super cute although there is a few dark ones too. They are highly catchy and my new obsession. I have fallen in love with pretty much all the characters in project diva f. So I had to do this. 

Hair - Miku is known for her bright blue/turquoise hair. Yes it is a bit much to dye your hair just for an outfit haha. But if you want to add a little of colour to your hair why not have a bit of fun with hair chalks ! I have just put an order online for some myself. Body shop have also released some. 

Top - She wears many types of outfits but in her main one she wears a shirt type top. So I have picked this grey blouse top and paired it with a blue statement knecklace. This is to represent the tie she wears a little. 

Skirt - Her skirt is almost a skater style skirt so here I picked a plain black skater skirt. These are great little skirts which I personally wear all the time. You can pick them up from many places like new look primark and river island. If you want it to be a bit more miku style then add a turquoise belt. 

Tights/socks - Miku wears tight long boots, which are not very wearable for every day. So why not wear some cute black knee high socks or some tights that have the suspender effect. You could just wear normal black tights too.

Shoes - Seems she wears thigh high boots I found some shoes which I think would suit the outfit and still be keeping in with her style. So for this I have chosen either some black creepers or dr martens. You could also just wear some cute black ankle boots.

Personally I think this outfit is really cute and would make a cute autumn outfit, hope you enjoyed this post and have any of you guys heard of Miku before ? or Vocaloid ?

Bristol Zoo - An awesome day out!

Hey guys, I had the pleasure of spending the day at Bristol zoo on Sunday and thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures with you!

We both were concerned as on the Saturday morning the weather was super horrible, and did not want to spend the day walking around a zoo while it was pouring down with rain. But we were super lucky and the weather was lovely, the sun was shining although it was a little chilly. 

It was only £16 for the ticket and was really worth the money. The £16 is a special offer with the buses. If you catch a number 8 or 9 bus outside Bristol Temple Meads train station you can buy your ticket and your bus ticket for £16. This means you don't have to que up to buy ticket when you get there and takes you to pretty much outside the zoo front door.

We were super lucky as none of the animals were hiding away from us. When we got to the Lions it was 20 mins to feeding time so they were just waking up and roaming around the cage waiting for food. But one thing was really pleased with is we caught the gorilla feeding time and they all came out and I got some great shots of them!

I do think my favourite part of the day was the gorillas as we got to hear about there personalities and what there favourite food is. Its crazy how human like they are really makes you think. Apart from the gorillas another mention has to be made about the little dude above. A three week old baby meerkat! Now this little dude was really hard to get pictures of as I have discovered Meerkats are super protective. Every time a baby came out of a whole or little gap is was swarmed but the adults. There were three baby ones in the enclosure and were very well looked after, the adults pretty much hid the babies from you!

Hope you enjoyed my little post on Bristol zoo, if you ever get a chance to go I really recommend it. We spent 5 hours there!
I will try to work out how to put a little album up of the pictures I have taken so I can share some more cute animals with you.

And one more thing, thank you and hello to all my new followers, I have hit over 150 followers on Bloglovin and it really puts a smile on my face knowing you guys are enjoying my posts!

Items Recently Bought

Items Recently Bought

Hey guys, thought would share with you a little haul of some items I recently bought. I did take pictures of these but the lighting was super poor so hope you enjoy still. Above are pictures so you can see a little better what I bought.

Boxy Blue/Mint Top £6 (sale price) from New Look
This was the last one in stock in my local New Look and it was really meant to be. I has no tag or anything on it, so I took it to the sales desk to find out and was surprised it was only £6 cause the other colours seemed to be £8. So I nabbed it up, I was really drawn to the colour of this and also its a really nice fit. Recently bought a ankle length black polka dot skirt and think this will look super pretty with it.

Shell Contrast Collar Top - £5 (sale price) from New Look
Now I really liked this top when I picked it up but now I have tried it on I think I need the size down as it falls weirdly under the arm and bags out a little. Decided going to try the smaller size on and hopefully it will look okay. I thought this top would go with a lot of things because of the colour and I do love a bit of collar!

Mollie Makes Blogging Mag £9.99 from Whsmiths
Now I work in Whsmiths and I someone bought this magazine the other day. It caught my eye as there is not many blogging magazines about. This is a special edition one so its a one off, but I had a flick through and it looks pretty good. I will review it I think once I have fully read it.

A Year In The Life Of Downton Abbey £22 (rrp) I picked it up for £10 plus staff discount
I love Downton Abbey everything about it is all the things I love. I seriously think I was born in the wrong year haha! I have all the other Downton books so when I saw this one come in its a must. I again will review it once I have had a read.

Pop Vinyl Figure - Hatsune Miku (I ordered this so long ago I cannot think of the price)
Now this is the last but really not the least and there is a little story behind it. I pre ordered this a long time ago and its was first due out in June I think and it kept changing and being a month later and then again... and so on. So when I had an email last week to say it had been dispatched I pretty much jumped for joy!
I have been wanting to start a collection of Pop Vinyl figures for a while now but wanted to start with one I really really love. Hatsune Miku is pretty much my new obsession and I love vocaloid and playing project diva f. She is also the first cosplay I ever did !!
