Funko Time: Chewbacca

Chewbacca has always been one of my favourite Star Wars characters. There is just something about that cute little Wookie that makes me want to hug him. I bet he gives good hugs. Obviously with the release of The Force Awakens, it was only right to pop him on here next. He has the cutest little face and the texture of his body to make fur is so clever. His face doesn't even make him look like a typical Funko if you get what I mean, he just looks like a baby Chewie!

I have had this Funko for ages, I picked him up in Asda a little while ago. I popped out for a Pizza and came back with a Funko Pop. That's pretty much my life summed up right there! He is the only Funko I have that doesn't have a box, as it was a bit damaged when I got him. Not that I mind, it means I can sit and wobble his head. Nothing cheers up a bad day more than a wobbling little Wookie head.

The Bodyguard Musical

Every now and again a musical or show comes into your life that leaves you speechless and full of emotion...this is how I felt watching The Bodyguard.

Wishlist: Skinnydip London

Lately I have been loving all things Skinnydip. Their website is full of the most dreamy items and I feel as though I am constantly adding new bits to my ever growing wishlist. I treated myself to the Narwhal phone case recently and could easily have added at least another 100 things to the order. Somehow I managed to restrain myself. Mainly due to the fact, I wouldn't have been able to pay any bills if I had caved in. Bills...Mermaid Bag...Bills...Unicorn Purse...The list is endless haha!

Here are my top picks that are on their website currently..

Funko Time: Frozen Coronation Anna

'She's my sister, she would never hurt me.'

I don't think I will ever get over Frozen. Although it isn't one of my favourite Disney films, it is just so nice to watch when you are feeling a bit glum. You can pop it on and instantly feel a bit magical again and that's what Disney is all about eh? I say that it isn't one of my favourites, I like it, but it hasn't quite made it to the top 10 yet. 

Anna is definitely my favourite character, I prefer her to Elsa a little bit. I don't know why, I just warmed to her a little more than Elsa *pun intended ha*. I have had this Funko for ages and my niece is always eyeing her up to kidnap. It's like I have to do some sort of head count at the end of each day to make sure they are all still there! I always find that the Anna Funko Pops have the most amazing hair, the plait effect is so pretty. The Frozen Fever version is just as cute, just a bit more summery.

This is definitely one of the prettiest Funko's that I have and I don't have hair envy at all.

Little Moose Leopard Pendant

I never thought that I would discover my new favourite necklace at the zoo of all places! I went to Whipsnade last week with my mum and niece, which was lovely. The gift shop was empty, so I thought that I would have a quick browse. Which is when I discovered Little Moose jewellery in a cabinet.

20 songs that...make me love musicals!

songs that make me love musicals

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved musicals. The songs, the magic, the dancing just takes me away to a special place and escape from 'real life' for a few hours. I grew up listening to Michael Ball quite a lot, my mum absolutely loves him, so I know the words to pretty much any musical song that he sings. I just need to amazing voice to go with the words I know, which unfortunately I really do not have.

Top 5 Pink Nail Polishes

I absolutely love the colour pink. When the weather is a bit dreary like today, I like to rummage through my nail polish drawers and find a nice pink shade to make everything look a little brighter.

MAC Eye Kohl - Minted

I seem to have a thing for Turquoise and Green Eyeliners. I don't know why I love them so much, I just think they are so easy to wear. Maybe not so much now that the hair colour has changed, but sometimes you just need a pop of colour and these are always the shades I go to! I picked up MAC Minted a few weeks ago, for my mum actually (she loves a bit of green too!) but as always I nipped in there to try it first.

Pop in a Box - April 2016

It's my favourite time of the month again...Pop in a Box time! I felt a bit psychic this month, as I started to think about this particular Funko a few days before the box came and there it was...spooky!

This month I was sent Arkham Asylum Poison Ivy.

I feel a bit of a Arkham Asylum theme going on here! Last month I was sent Harley Quinn and this month Poison Ivy. Not that I mind though, Ivy is one of my favourites anyway! I have a bit of eyebrow envy with this Funko, if only I could get my flick that perfect! It says a lot when I am jealous of a figures eyebrows ha! The ivy detailing on her body, is just so perfect, simple but so effective! She reminds me a little of Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy here too!

This Funko is so simple, yet definitely one of my favourites.

Makeup Look: Shimmering Flick

makeup look purple

I had a bit of a makeup clear out at the weekend. When I say clear out, it was more a tidy up. For ages, I have been using the top drawer in my unit with a cutlery divider to section off the different bits. I brought this storage unit from Amazon, and I am in love. I think I will need more than one though as the lipsticks have completely taken over the top section, but it is a start!

Lion King Tsum Tsum's

You may have seen my absolute delight on Twitter a few weeks ago when I picked up these Lion King Tsum's. I said in my last Tsum Tsum posts (here and here) about my disappointment of not being able to get this range.

Models Own Hypergel Nail Polish - Lunar Grey

models own lunar grey

I absolutely love the colour grey. There is just something about it that just works so nicely in Spring. Who am I kidding?...I wear Grey all year round, but I think grey is loveliest at this time of year. I don't see grey as a gloomy colour at all, it is such an easy colour to wear and goes with pretty much anything too. 

Nail polish is no exception either, I picked up Lunar Grey a good few weeks ago to fuel my grey addiction...

Happy Thoughts...

Sometimes you just need to step back, relax and think of the simple things that make you happy. It is so hard to get swept up in 'life' and forget to take a little time out for yourself. I do this all of the time and end up feeling like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. I have been trying to do more little things that make me smile lately and it couldn't help more. Sometimes the smallest of things or gestures can really make a difference. 

I suppose this is your Sunday reminder to do something for you today!

Monthly Wishlist: April

april 2016 wishlist

How is it April already? Honestly, these last few months have absolutely flown by. Sometimes I just have to take a few minutes, stop and breathe otherwise time whizzes past without me even realising. How nice are these lighter evenings though, everything just seems so much fresher when the nights are lighter. 

A new month also calls for a new selection of items I am lusting after. I seem to have a bit of a pastel theme going on too...
