Funko Time: Deadpool

'Bad Deadpool… Good Deadpool!'

I have finally been allowed to raid Lewis' Funko collection. As we don't live together, we have separate Funko's, although we never buy the same ones as there is no point doubling up when they will eventually join to make the huge collection haha. I thought I would start by stealing borrowing Deadpool, the first Funko that Lewis got, all those years ago ha!

I didn't really know who Deadpool was back then, much to Lewis' annoyance (DP is his favourite!) but after a million conversations about Deadpool, I actually quite like him now. This figure is super cute, I love the detail on his little belt.

I must say I enjoyed the Deadpool movie lots more than I thought I would. I was a little unsure when I first heard about it, but actually it was a lot better and funnier than I thought it would be. With Ryan Reynolds in it, I was never going to hate it though was I?

MAC Matte Lipstick - Pink Plaid

mac pink plaid lipstick

My mum and dad have been on holiday over the past few weeks and I felt I needed to treated myself to something to try and feel a little less envious, so I decided to get myself a new lipstick. As the Spring season is upon us, I knew that I wanted to go for a lighter, more pastel shade, so eventually I settled for Pink Plaid.

Spider-man Tsum Tsums

spider-man tsum collection

Every now and again, a Tsum Tsum collection comes into my life that makes me do a little squeal of joy. Last time it was the Lion King and Star Wars collections, but I will brush past them as I didn't manage to get a single Tsum from either of those. DEVASTATING. This time around it is the new spider-man collection that has filled my heart with happiness again..

Top 5 Purple Nail Polishes

favourite purple nail polishes

Since dying my hair, I suppose it is only natural that I have become a little obsessed with the colour purple. I draw the line at full on purple outfits though, I don't want to be known locally as the 'giant human grape' or 'crazy purple lady' so thought I would just stick to painting my nails purple.

Cute Gifts for Easter

cute easter gifts

When I was little, my nan would never buy us a chocolate egg for Easter. Instead the young ones in the family would get a gift, as she said we would all get too much chocolate anyway, so would prefer to get us something that we could keep. I would always go for a set of nice new hair clips or a head band from Claire's, to be honest I don't think anything has actually changed from my younger self to now, any excuse for new hair accessories! It got me thinking, not everybody likes or can eat chocolate so I thought I would round up the cutest Easter gifts I could find...

50 Shades of Purple

Some of you may have already seen via my social media accounts that I now have purple hair. I have wanted to go purple for a good while now, but every time I thought of it, I felt a bit sad to leave the turquoise tones behind. Eventually, I decided to just go for it though, as I could always go back to turquoise if I ever wanted to.

Shells and Moons

coconut lane jewellery

Don't you just love pretty jewellery?! I used to work in a jewellery shop and at one point I think I must have owned half the shop itself, everytime something new came in I brought it. That was always my downfall, half of my wages were spent back into where I was working ha! I do have more statement necklaces than you can shake a stick at now though, so I suppose I just see it that I was stocking up aha!

Pop in a Box - March 2016

It's my favourite time of the month again...Pop in a Box time! I actually forgot about it this month, my mind has been a bit all over the place, so it was a welcome surprise when I got home from work and my mum handed me the parcel.

This month I received Arkham Asylum Harley Quinn.

Harley Quinn is one of my favourite baddies and I can't wait for Suicide Squad. I think I forgot to thumbs down this pop though as I prefer her with the coloured bunches. I always want to put my hair in bunches whenever I think of her. I don't think I will pull it off quite as well though! Lewis has Arkham Asylum Batman, so they are just going to chill together. Every cloud and all that ha! I'm so impressed with the level of detail on her costume though, even the name badge has a little photo and writing on!

Smashbox #Shapematters Palette

smashbox shapematters palette

I have wanted to try contouring for such a long time. I love having a play with makeup, but contouring scares me as it seems like such a tricky one. There are two extremes, it can either be done amazingly and make you look like a supermodel or not so amazingly and you look like a dirty clown, there is no in-between. I went to Bicester Village last weekend and saw this Smashbox Shape Matters Palette on offer and thought it would be my full proof way of giving contouring a go. 

Here are my first thoughts...

20 songs that...remind me of my teens!

I mentioned in my last 20 songs post that I have a wide taste in music and I think today's post is going to prove it. I spent my teenage years listening to nothing but rock and metal music, which was definitely Lewis' influence on my music taste. I was brought up on Motown and Soul music, which is how I know the words to pretty much every Motown and Luther Vandross song there is. But when I met Lewis, we would listen to his iPod on the way home from school and my love of rock music began!

MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow - Bleuluxe

mac bleuluxe veluxe pearlfusion shadow

I just can't help but get sucked in by pretty, sparkly things. I honestly think I am a human version of a magpie, I just can't walk away from shiny things. Glitter is my weak point, as soon as something starts to sparkle I am there. This is exactly why I couldn't walk away from this MAC Bleuluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow.

Top 5 Spring Nail Colours

top 5 spring nail polishes

You may have already guessed, but Spring is one of my favourite times of the year. It's not like I have mentioned it since there was the first glimmer of sunlight or anything! This is also one of my favourite times for nail polishes. Pastel, pretty shades are totally my thing. Not that I don't wear them in any other season, but I think you can match the brighter colours better in Spring.

Funko Time: Snow White

'What do you do when things go wrong? Oh! You sing a song!'

I absolutely love Snow White, she is totally up there with my favourite Princesses. I would say her, Belle and Ariel are my Top 3, although if you asked me again tomorrow I probably would have changed my mind again! I think it's good to change up your favourite's every now and again, variety is the spice of life and all that lol!

I brought this Funko when I first started my collection, way before I realised that some of the paintwork could be a bit hit and miss. Her poor face looks as though she's been in a boxing ring and been punched in the top of the head! I still love her though, especially those cute little eyelashes and the frill at the bottom of her dress. I just need some dwarves to sit with her!

MAC Nail Lacquer - Haute Octane

Every so often, a nail polish comes into my life that makes me wonder how I coped without it. This is exactly how I feel about Haute Octane.

Monthly Wishlist: March

march monthly wishlist

Seriously, how quickly has February passed by?! It seems like only last week that I posted February's wishlist. Anyway, another month calls for another collection of bits and pieces that I am lusting after. I was so tempted to fill it with different chocolate eggs that I am wishing for this Easter, but decided against that and chose some other bits instead.
