Thanks to a friend of mine who gave me a 20 per cent discount code I managed to get some of the new Ufufy’s!
I’ve been meaning to pick up some new ones since some from the movie Bambi were released. I was lucky that when I went to order them they had just released ones from the movie Dumbo!
They are all so cute and arrived pretty quickly! They smell of Apple Blossoms which reminds me a lot of how my toys smelled as a kid!
I picked up the following:
- Miss Bunny
I’m in love with this range and can’t wait new ones! Someone posted online that the Disney store in Japan have just released Marie’s family which I’ll be getting for sure when we get them in Ireland!
Does anyone else collect this range?
Let me know! I’d love to know which ones you’re collecting!
And here are my single issues from last month!
I really need to catch up and read a bunch of single issues. I think once I’m finished uni I might take a break at the start of summer and read comics. I’m also hoping to get a few new manga and comics soon as I have way too many series I want to catch up on! That haul should be coming sometime next month!
Now on to the haul!
First up are of course Batgirl single issues!
Batgirl and Batgirl and the Birds of Prey! Super excited to binge read these!
And new issues of Snotgirl and Jem and the holograms!
Both series I love and the art is so great in both!
And finally new issues of Motor Crush and Paper Girls. I adore both of the series and highly recommend them! Even if comics aren’t your thing I think you’ll enjoy these.
I am way too excited about this post! This is my first Fairyloot box (and my first box in general!)
While I admit the one major negative to this box is how long it takes! It’s meant to be a February box but doesn’t get shipped out till the 20th of that month? The March box has already been released and sold out, while I was tempted by it I couldn’t see the point in investing in a 2nd box while I hadn’t even gotten my first. What was the point in that? In my opinion this box should be shipped out ahead so that you get it somewhere at the start of every month it’s meant for! (Or at the very least before that month ends!)
Now on to the box!
What came in the box:
- The Hazel Wood (signed by the author plus a note from the author) (Side note this book also came with Owl Crate which sucks for people who get more than one box)
- Red Riding Hood Wooden bookmark by Ink and Wonder
- Candle, The Hinterland (Oakmoss and Tea Leaves) by Wick and Fable
- Fairytale mug
- Posion Apple bath salts
The box itself was bigger than I was expecting. All the items were well contained, the mug came in a small box too. This was my first Fairy Loot box and while I am tempted to eventually get another one day, this was very expensive for what I got. I can for sure see the appeal of these boxes but it also wasn’t what I was expecting. I have heard from people who buy their boxes that this wasn’t a great box compared to most in the past.
I am happy with a lot of the items in here. I’ve been wanting one of these bookmarks for a while and the bath salts smell quite nice.
For anyone else who got this box or are interested in Fairy Loot I’d love to hear your thoughts about it!
I’m so sad that this will be my very last Meraki Candle haul as the etsy shop will be closing at the end of 2017. I wish Heather the very best for the future! I love these candles and it will be sad to see one of the very few UK based candle stores go.
I managed to pick up two, in the scents Fireworks and Heartrender.
They took so long to get here though! I ordered these in December and I believe they were shipped in January but didn’t arrive till this week (in February). That’s way too long.
The Fireworks candle is described as smelling of candy floss! That sounded so good to me and I had been meaning to pick it up!
It for sure has a sweet scent but I’m not sure I would describe it as candy floss. I am excited to light it.
The Heartrender candle is the main reason I did this order. I had seen it on their instagram and it sounded so good. So when I did this order and noticed it under their buy one get one half price sale I had to get it. It’s described as smelling of waffles, strawberries and french vanilla. So in other words heaven!
After getting this one I was sad to discover there was no smell of waffles or vanilla just ok strawberry. For sure disappointed in this one. I am interested to see if they appear when I burn it.
I recently picked up some new books so I’d thought I’d share!
One of the first books is one that I’ve been wanting to read for a while now. Everyone was talking about the previous book and when I spotted this one out in town I had to get it. I’m really interested in seeing what this is like and how it lives up to the hype I’ve heard about it! It’s a book of modern poetry and I’m trying to read more different types of literature this year.
The next book in this haul is the last book in The Queen of the Tearling trilogy (which I haven’t read yet). I’m hoping to binge read this during ayearathon next month!
I can’t describe The Fate of the Tearling (by Erika Johansen) without giving some sort of spoilers or even spoiling the series for myself. But here’s a quick description of the first book.
Another book that’s been on my tbr since I first heard of it and one that I spotted out on my journey into town. There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins is about a girl called Makani Young who has moved to Nebraska and at her school students are being murdered. It sounds like it would make a really good movie or tv series so I’m really excited to read this! It’s a little different from what I normally read.
One of my most anticipated reads of 2018 is The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. I’ve heard about this on instagram a lot and was super hyped to pick it up. I’m for sure reading this during one of the readathons coming up!
It’s well over due but sadly my Boots order was sent to the wrong store, thankfully a friend of mine was able to collect it for me! So shout out to you!
I won’t be posting up everything as 2 of the items were for my Dad and brother and not very exciting!
However what I got was! I managed to pick up 3 things by Miss Patissere!
I got two of the Miss Patisserie gift boxes for half price! And a bath slab. I’m so in love with this brand. They are from the UK and are Vegan and cruelty free!
In the first box there were three bath bombs and a star, along with a small bag of unicorn dust!
The second box also came with a small bag of unicorn dust, 4 bath bombs and a coffee scrub.
I am already in love with the scrub (it left my skin so soft) and the unicorn dust smells so good!
And the last photo here showcases the slab in the middle. It was much bigger than I expected too, it actually came with two of them!
I really recommend trying out this brand if you ever get the chance!
They have their own website and are even stocked in store and online with Boots!
One random thing that I picked up is this cute Powerpuff Girls bag set. It’s so cute! I couldn’t resist!
I’m a bit late with this post as I only got 2 comics (the shipping was earlier for my pull list because of Christmas so the rest of December was included with this months!) and so the post would have been too short!
So here are two months of NCBD!
First up are the comics I got in December!
One of my favourite series from the DC Rebirth universe has to be Batgirl and the Birds of Prey. It’s such a great series and I’m super excited to read more.
Paper Girls is one series that I keep on recommending to people. It’s such a good series, set in the 80s! The art is also something I bring up every time that I talk about this series.
As you can tell Batgirl is my favourite character from DC comics. I have both series on my pull list at the moment and both are fantastic! I’m so happy to have a lot of Batgirl in my life and that they are printing two of her stories at once.
New Jem and the holograms! I really recommend this series especially if you enjoyed the cartoon from the 80s. It’s done really well and it’s more diverse too. They showcase women of colour, LGBT women and women of different sizes.
The Beauty is something I’ve been reading for a while that’s a little different to whats out there. It’s a series about a world where an STD that you can catch that makes you beautiful. It’s a series that I would recommend even if you don’t read comics!
Motor Crush is a series by the team behind Batgirl of Burnside. I’m so in love with it so far! Again another diverse series with the main character being a lesbian POC. I also love the covers by Babs! I try to make sure that when she has one available that I get it!
Zodiac Starforce is a western take on the magical girl genre and I’m a huge fan. I’m so happy they decided to continue this series.
That’s my NCBD haul! So what have you picked up recently from your pull? I’d love to hear about them!
