Disney Store UK haul!

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:

  • Bambi
  • Thumper
  • Miss Bunny
  • Dumbo
  • Timothy

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!

Forbidden Planet Dublin Haul!

I was up in Dublin recently and of course had to make my stop at Forbidden Planet. They’ve had a lot of work done to the store and it’s looking great! Highly recommend that you check it out if haven’t!

I love going to comic book stores! I don’t get the chance to do it as often as I’d like since I live primarily in the South and we really don’t have any (Cork does but Tipperary and Limerick are where I am and we don’t). I also much prefer buying comics and merchandise when I can in comic book stores over book stores when I can afford to. My favourite stores that I’ve been to so far are Forbidden Planet in Dublin (the Belfast store wasn’t quite the same) and of course The Big Bang in Dundrum. I do really need to make another visit there at some point. They are so lovely and if I lived in Dublin I would go so often.

On with the haul!

I do like picking up manga when I’m in Forbidden Planet since they do a 3 for 2 all year round making it just as cheap as when I order online. I collect a lot of manga so I’m always happy to get it at a cheaper price.

The volumes that I picked up were Honey so Sweet volume 7 and 8 along with a new Black Butler volume (24). I was so happy to see Honey so Sweet as it finished just about 2 months ago in English at 8 volumes. It’s such a cute and adorable series. It’s also so nice to buy a series that doesn’t go on and on (looking at you forever Naruto). Funnily enough I posted about this on twitter recently and got given out to for mentioning it finished at that volume, even though it’s been finished in Japan for about 2 years now!

The art was one of the main reasons I picked up this series in the first place. It’s one I really recommend and I can’t wait to finish reading this over the holidays!

I picked up volume 24 of Black Butler too, a series I need to catch up on reading soon. I adore this manga though. The art is so beautiful (can you tell I’m a sucker for art?) and the story line changes up keeping it interesting with different arcs. I do recommend you check this out and the anime is quite good. The Atlantic arc just came out as a movie and I loved it!

I was so excited when I found this next item! Funko released a new wave of Disney Princess pops and finally released a new Aurora! (Still want a Briar Rose one!). I missed out on the original (and still regret not picking it up when I randomly found her in a store in Dublin) and she costs too much second hand so I was delighted when Funko brought out a new one! I’m just hoping I can find the chase version of her in the blue dress as she’s mostly marketed in the pink. They’ve also released a Merida, Snow White and Mulan in this line. I’m really hoping to get Snow White at some point!


Funko Pop Haul Update!

Another thing that I love to collect would have to be Funko Pops! I’m pretty obsessed!

Here are some of the ones that I purchased over the last couple of months!


As you can see I love my Disney and Harry Potter pops! I try to only collect characters that I really love or it can get a bit too much! I already have limited space to display the ones that I own already but I have so many still on my wishlist. I was happy to finally get some of these!

I loved these new Disney Princess pops and managed to get 2 from the wave. I need to get Belle next! I don’t own that many Disney Princess pops, most of mine are from Frozen. (I have 6 of those!).


I manged to get my last Sailor Senshi! I’m really excited for the next wave of these!

I also love the Belle pop from OUAT. I picked up both of these at Forbidden Planet. I love her character in OUAT and she is one of my favourite Disney Princess’s. I can’t wait for the live action pops coming out!


Do you collect Funko Pops? I have nearly 70 now which is crazy. I started collecting them over a year ago! There are still so many that I want!


Disney Store Haul!

So this is a catch up post of stuff that I bought over the last couple of months and stuff that was gifted to me from Disney!

If you want to keep up to date as I’m terrible at blogging my instagram is updated a lot more!

Now on to the haul!

As anyone knows I’m obsessed with the Disney Store. They do the cutest items and in my opinion the better quality ones too.

My favourite thing overall to buy from the Disney Store would be their mugs. They are definitely the best quality mugs I own. I buy way too many but I love each one. The Chip cup below is just a kids plastic one but he was too cute to resist. I hope to one day own the proper version of him and Mrs Potts!

I also love the animator doll collection that they did. I don’t have enough space so the mini versions were perfect additions to my collection! They were also on sale too!

Below is a glass tumbler that I got with Belle on one side and the Beast on the other. It was too beautiful for me to pass on. I use it a lot too! Trying to keep my water intake up.

You may have seen the mugs from another blog post I did but I thought I’d mention them here too. I bought these when I moved up to Belfast. I love this Princess collection! I eventually got the Snow White one too! They have new Princess mugs out at the moment and I hope to get those soon.

The Mad Hatter mug was a gift from my sister and I love it! It actually holds the perfect amount of tea too! I love Alice in Wonderland and while I like the Tim Burton one, it doesn’t hold a candle to the animated version.

Tsums are one of my many weaknesses! They are just so cute! In case you couldn’t tell, my favourite character is Marie! I love her so much! I have a corner in my room filled with Marie things. I need to take a photo of my collection soon!

I was very lucky and was gifted the Aurora animator doll! It was really high on my wishlist for Christmas and I didn’t want to buy one due to space and my family already think I’m crazy for buying so many toys! Thankfully some kind spirit bought her for me. They even got me the beautiful set of animator figures below too.

So does anyone else have an addiction to the Disney Store? What are your favourite things to buy and collect from there?


Sailor Moon haul


I adore anime and magical girls are my favourite. Whenever I find merchandise I have to get it. The Sailor Moon pops are so cute and I’ve been wanting to collect all of them. So far I have Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars and Sailor Venus. When I spotted Jupiter in Dublin I had to get her. She’s adorable! I also picked up a cute tablet case and the Q Posket version of Jupiter, I’m only missing Mars and Mercury from this line.

I never thought I would own Sailor Moon merch so getting any makes me happy. I’m hoping to finish collecting the ones I own soon!

Is there any series that you enjoy collection from?

Here are my Sailor Moon purchases so far! (Since I’ve moved to Belfast)


Sailor Venus is my favourite character. I hope to get more merch from this series one day. I really want to get one of the wands, a full size proplica. Dreams!


Batgirl of Burnside Funko Pop

I was so excited to finally get my hands on this pop. Batgirl is my all time favourite super hero and the Burnside Batgirl is my favourite. It was definitely number 1 on my wishlist.




I managed to get her cheaper through Forbidden Planet online. It arrived quite quickly and in great condition. Her paint job is much better than the ones I eventually found in store. I’m so happy to have her in my collection. My goal is to have a lot of Batgirl figures!

Sorry for the random short post but I had to share! There are still so many Batgirl items I have to get. DC Superhero girls have a doll that I love and of course the Babs Tarr statue is a must! I hope to get it one day!

What are your most wished for items? Funko Pops or figures?

Also I’d love to know if you have a character you love as much as I love Batgirl!

NCBD! Catch up and Pull List update

So I’ve made a couple of changes to my pull list since my last NCBD post. I’ve decided to remove a few titles either due to cost or loss of interest. They also take up a lot of space so I have to be more picky about the titles that I buy! That doesn’t mean that I won’t try and get some of the trade backs later on for some of them!

I’ve taken the following off my pull list recently:

  • Ms Marvel
  • Spider Gwen
  • Thor
  • Harley Quinn
  • Suicide Squad
  • Sherlock
  • Black Canary

Those are a few off the top of my head. For some it was definetly the interest went down for me. Marvel’s Civil War 2 just didn’t peak my interest and Ms Marvel was taken off for that reason. I think a few people felt the same as me. I also wasn’t as excited for some new issues like I used to be so I haven’t even read some of the newer issues I bought. Harley Quinn and Suicide Squad didn’t excite me enough to keep buying the issues. They were good though so I hope to get the trades eventually. Sherlock was the same as the tv show and I didn’t even realise it was on my pull list till I was charged for issue 3. I had asked for the first two issues and didn’t plan on getting more.

So here are some of the recent issues that I’ve got! I’ve changed my pull list to monthly so I’m hoping to keep on top of this post in the future at the end of every month!

I’d love to know what you’re currently reading below. Whether it’s a new issue or something older.



Okay! So first up are some of the most recent issues that I got in the mail. Jem and the holograms was a comic that I was always really excited about. It was so good! Now here’s the but. For me one of the things that drew me to this series was the artwork. And it’s changed on this issue. Not for good at least in my opinion. It’s way too different and it’s not a style I like. I’m hoping it’ll read just as well and I might try one more issue but sadly I think I may have to pull Jem off my pull list. Which is something I never thought that I would do. Does anyone else feel the same?

Snotgirl! Oh my god. I adore this comic so much. The art is super cute and the story is really well written so far. It’s a keeper for me! I might do a review on it soon.


New Batgirl! I don’t seem to have recieved the new Batgirl and the Birds of Prey yet but I hope it’ll arrive soon. I am really enjoying the new Batgirl and I’m really interested in seeing where this series takes her.

I got the new Gotham Academy mostly to see what it was like. I collected the orginal issues and while I loved it I did get a bit bored with it. I didn’t include it in the issues that I wanted to get for Rebirth but I’m interested to seeing what this new issue is like. I will definitely still get the trade.


And my Harley Quinn and Suicide Squad issues! I did really enjoy these but twice a month is too much for me right now. While DC made their comics cheaper they were overall more expensive with the bi monthly shipping. It definitely made me really picky with what I was going to get from Rebirth.


Now time for some older issues that I didn’t write a post for! If you ever want to keep more up to date with what I buy check out my instagram as I post there a lot!


I love Goldie Vance so much. As a fan of detective/mystery books and shows this comic for me hits that genre on the nail! It’s very Nancy Drew! I’m so happy that they decided to give this comic a full run as it was originally only 4 issues. The artwork was one of the other reasons that I decided to get it and it’s perfect issue after issue!

Fables is one of my favourite comics (that I definitely plan on finishing!) so hearing there was more of it coming out I had to get this issue. I’m hoping to read it when I go home for my reading week as I didn’t get a chance to before I came up to Belfast.



These two comics are 100 per cent recommended by me. The stories are different and so interesting. The Beauty is about a STD that can make you beautiful while Paper Girls is set in the 1980s and centres around a group of girls working as paper girls when aliens attack. They both have great art and every issue has me wanting more.


And last but certainly not least Harley Quinn! I adore the art in this and while it’s no longer on my pull list it’s definitely a trade back that I will be getting.

I also ordered a funko pop that I’ve been so eager to add to my collection!


Sailor Venus!!!

She’s so cute! Minako is my favourite sailor scout and I’m so happy to have her! The Sailor Moon pops are the cutest! I’m hoping to get Jupiter next!

I’m also really happy to report that I have a Batgirl on the way too.

Her and Batgirl were definitely the highest on my wishlist so I’m super excited to be able to finally own them both!
