Pastel Asos x Hello Kitty, Primark and Rokit Haul

For once in my life I have actually managed to one, go to London and actually stay in budget and two keep everything I bought to a particular theme. The theme being pastel, well, mainly different shades of pink. Maybe, this is because most of the items I got are from Primark but it still counts!

However, I did also happen to puruse Asos before I went to London and a certain Asos x Hello Kitty collection may have dropped. I did not go mad (for me) however so I only got two items and one I’m not sure if I’m going to keep (I need opinions).

I am happy with what else I got though (even if spoiler alert that is because it contains a lot of socks) even if I still need a white slip (to go under a purchase I bought and a sheer white vintage number I got before the trip and a dress that’s in the sale in New Look that I’ve been wanting for a while). Also, some plain black shoes that are also suitable for work (or brown!). I’m trying to hold off spending this month though, as I really want to focus on saving!

The sheer white dress I mentioned. 

Also, apologises that I’m only posting once a week at the moment. I really wanted to try and coordinate my blog content to my YouTube content.

These posts will either be on Thursdays or Sundays so still fitting the schedule but for a little bit they are only going to be once a week while I catch up.

So, here’s the video to this blog post below – extra brownie points to anyone who reads this post and watches the video!

I’ll start with the Asos x Hello Kitty collection as I got this before my trip. For those who are new here I’m a big Hello Kitty fan and loved the Lazy Oaf x Hello Kitty collection as well as the Topshop pop up. Essentially, if it’s got Hello Kitty on, I’m there. So when I saw Asos we’re doing another drop I knew I had to investigate especially as I didn’t get anything last time. I further knew I needed this collection when I saw that the tones were  pastel focused.

Hello Kitty x Asos pastel jacket 

When I saw this denim jacket featuring pink, yellow (fun fact: I love yellow hence why La La was my favourite Teletubby) and denim; I knew I needed it. As the description on the jacket said no stretch despite the jacket looking slightly oversized on the pictures of the model; I still for some reason wasn’t expecting this to be oversized. However, it is. This isn’t a bad thing because I love a good oversized denim jacket but I just wanted to flag it – if you wanted a tighter fit I’d recommend going a size down.

Maybe, the searing heat taking place at the moment is scouring my judgment on this one but I’m not sure if this suits me. I’m also struggling to put this with outfits at the moment, especially as the heat doesn’t really make me prone to wanting to. I think another problem is that I need more denim/ white staple dresses in my wardrobe for layering, as I have lots of black pieces but I often don’t want to wear them with softer pastel looks. I’m considering investing in this white denim dress from Monki, as I think it will help a lot and the style of dress is very much in my comfort zone. However, like I said I’m also trying to save money (the eternal conundrum!) – if I can get to half way through the month without spending too much I might treat myself!

Price: I’d rather not discuss. 

Beret: Just Peachy 

Skirt: Lazy Oaf 

Socks and trainers: See below…

Hello Kitty x Asos socks 

Although, I hesitated a little between whether I should buy the pink or white with these I decided to go with the classic white, as I thought it would be cute with a few of my Lazy Oaf x Hello Kitty pieces. These are the kind of socks I’m scared to wear as I don’t want to ruin but I will because I personally think life is for living and socks are for wearing!

Price: £4.00

Primark pusheen top

Pusheen and a pink grid pattern? What’s there not to like?! The stitching on this isn’t perfect on the Pusheen but then it is Primark. This is also a little sheer and it is £8 (so not incredibly cheap) but it will look great tucked into skirts or high waisted jeans.

Price: £8 

Beret: Just Peachy 

Cardigan: Lazy Oaf 

Skirt: Lazy Oaf 

Socks: Primark (see below)

Shoes: Primark (see below)

Pink fluffy top 

This is actually one of my favourite purchases from the day. It’s actually really good quality and I was worried it was going to be itchy but it’s actually very soft. I definitely want to go back and get another one of these tops and perhaps some more colours. I haven’t washed this yet so don’t know how that is going to go. This is a 90s dream and would look great with a A-line skirt. On the label it said this was part of Primark’s new improved sizing. Since it’s a top it’s hard for me to judge on that as I can fit a range of different sizes in tops usually but it did fit nice for what it’s worth.

Price: £8

Pink Frenchie socks 

It’s probably best if I do all the socks in one go (minus the Hello Kitty ones of course) because there’s quite a lot of them. The first pair are these adorable pink Frenchie socks and I love these as they come already ready to wear folded with shoes. Since I have little legs unless a sock is designed like this they are often go too high on my leg to be worn peaking out of shoes and look flattering. These however are perfect and I am determined to go back and buy every variation.

IMG_0279

Price: £1.50

Pink Strawberry socks 

These were the socks that I spotted before I picked up the Frenchie ones. They are the same style but a slightly darker pink and with a strawberry on. I LOVE pink and strawberries as a pattern combination so could not resist these when I saw them. I can’t wait too put them to good use!

Price: £1.50 

Pink glittery Marie socks

Glitter. Check. Marie. Check. Socks. Check. These are definitely then dream socks for me. The only thing that could make them better if they were pre-folded like the Frenchie and Strawberry socks. I definitely want to incorporate this into a Marie look with my other Marie pieces (it is way TOO HOT for the jacket at the moment though).

IMG_0289

Price: £2

Pastel Honeydukes Harry Potter socks

These are less to wear peaking out of shoes and more to bring some everyday pastel into my life. I am in awe of the Primark Honeydukes collection and wish I had bought more of it (next trip I just might have to pick up the makeup bag and pyjama set).

Price: £2.50

Pastel Honeydukes Jelly Bean Harry Potter trainers 

These are without a doubt my favourite purchase of the day. I am seriously considering buying another pair, as I don’t think I’ll be able to cope when this pair wear out. Not only do they have a bit of a platform which I am always in need of but they combine two of my favourite things: pastels and Harry Potter. I think I might of needed a size down in these as they are bit loose at the ankle but that might be aided by tying them up to the last available aglet (the reason I haven’t done already is because on one of the shoes the lace has a knot in preventing me from doing so).

Price: £10

Rokit Pink pastel vintage gingham dress

Based on the shoulder pads inserted in the shoulders alone I’m going to guess this is from the 80s (I may take these out but am undecided yet). This dress is about midi length on me and I’m going to need to wear a slip underneath it as it’s sheer (I’m going to pick some up on my next Primark trip as this is an issue with a few of my items now). I love the little details on the button and the cute circle detailing. Once I have something to wear underneath this will look great with my Harry Potter trainers and the Strawberry socks.

Price: £18

So there it is my for once on a theme haul. I know my content has been a lot of hauls recently so I’m going to try and mix it up. I want to do some personal posts again but those are hard to write and I’ve been facing a bit of a writers block recently. I’m hoping posting once a week for a while will help sort this out. As always let me know what your favourite content of mine is. I’m thinking of doing some more content with just more of my general likes and dislikes + facts about me in the upcoming weeks so watch out for that!

MCM London Comic Con haul: May 2018

Despite how many years I’ve being going to MCM London Comic Con and how many times I’ve been to the Excel centre; I still managed to almost get lost on the way there. However, we ultimately did make it there and made some friends in our confused state on the way (I’m lucky that I’ve always had lovely experiences with the people I’ve met at cons and on the way to con).

This year was one of the first times in a while I felt like I was going for me. Therefore, in the end I didn’t take as many pictures as I usually would because I just wanted to relax, enjoy the con and have a chill time (hence why I chose to go Friday, as it’s generally one of the quieter days). I also had a little bit of money to spend this time so actually had some joy looking at the merchandise. Though maybe because I actually had money; I was actually less tempted than usual. I did ultimately pick up some goodies, which I wanted to share, as I lot of them from independent artists and that is always nice to share and promote!

Pusheen x Artbox 

This was one of the stalls I knew I definitely had to visit at con and it did not disappoint with it’s Pusheen goodness. I really was mostly interested in the pins but to purchase the pins you had to buy an item to be able to buy each pin (i.e. buy one item you can buy one pin, buy two you can buy two pins, etc.). I could only really afford to buy one item and a pin even though I really wanted two of the pins (pins you could chose from are below).

In the end I decided to get the unicorn pusheen pin (it was between that pin and the pastel one) because I liked how it could double up on a shirt collar if I wanted it too.

Pusheen unicorn 2

Luckily, I was able to find an item that I wanted to buy that was also something that was really cute (not hard when its pusheen) and that was a birthday cake pusheen keyring. I wanted a keyring, as thought it would look cute on one of my bags and I liked the birthday cake pusheen because it’s my birthday coming up so I love all things birthday at the moment.

Birthday cake pusheen or me in pusheen form.

I also wanted to visit the Artbox store because I knew there would be a competition to win a GIANT PUSHEEN.

Giant pusheen.jpg
MY SON!!! (I know Pusheen is a girl, I blame Pixielocks for this, ha, ha)

Although, I know I will not win this competition I am still stubbornly determined that I will and desire it with my whole heart because I am pretty sure the pusheen length wise is about as big as me. Though I’m not sure if the giant pusheen you win is the size of the one above or below – either way I want it!!

Overall, I really loved the Pusheen x Artbox collaboration because the ice cream sundae theme was pastel perfection. So much so that I couldn’t bear myself to throw away the leaflet I got with my purchase because it was just too cute (I mean look at Pusheen’s little hat!)

Pusheen x Artbox.jpg

Pokémon Sylveon purse

I’ve been wanting to get another purse for a while now so when I saw that this adorable Sylveon purse was only £8 I couldn’t resist. I also liked how it was a bit smaller than some of my other purses so that it could be used to accompany smaller bags or when I don’t have a lot of room in my bag!

 

 

 

 

 

I still can’t decide on my favourite Eevee evolution so it took a few minutes of deliberating before I chose this style but I thought the pink and blue would match a lot of what I have in my wardrobe already. This purse also came with a little bag of sweets (which, I unfortunately can’t eat because they’re haribo) and a badge that I thought was a super lovely touch.

Sailor Moon manga vol. 4 

I’ve been wanting this volume for a while now because I needed to know what happened next so when I was finally able to find a stall that sold manga (I kept seeing stalls with manga in the title that only sold anime) I couldn’t resist this. I was also very tempted by The Ancient Magus Bride manga but decided to resist for now and go with the Sailor Moon because I am already in the middle of reading the series. I’ve actually already read this volume and I love it – I sense Sailor Pluto is going to become one of my favourite Sailor Scouts.

Sailor Moon Vol. 4

Sailor V Pop Figure 

In keeping with the Sailor Moon theme I also picked up this Sailor V Pop figure because I’d been eyeing it for a while on Forbidden Planet because it was an exclusive (so wanted to get it while it was available). Sailor Venus is one of my favourite scouts and I love this look and figure however I was a bit disappointed with the figure’s quality. As you can see in the image the paintwork by her feet is messy and both her feet can’t go on the stand at the same time because either her feet aren’t far enough apart or the stand is made incorrectly.

Geen Jones artwork

So now let’s finally get onto some of the amazing artwork I picked up. The prints by Geeno Jones were reduced because they were old/ some had slight imperfections. My untrained eye didn’t notice any issues and I really loved the print of the girl with the cherries in her hair so much I had to have it.

Cherry print hair

I’m not sure if I’m going to frame these or what I’m going to do with them! I know I want them on display somewhere however.

Geeno Kiki.jpg

I had to of course pick up their Kiki print (I don’t think I can resist any Kiki’s Delivery Service artwork).

Yuri on Ice prints.jpg

One thing I noticed at con was that there was a LOT of Yuri on Ice merchandise (which, I’m not complaining about). I managed to resist a lot of it but had to pick up these adorable pastel prints of Yuri and Viktor. These I definitely think I want to frame (maybe in a special double frame) and have on a table or alternatively on my wall somewhere.

If you like Geen Jones’ artwork you can find them on the below links.

Here’s some of my favourite picks from their shop:

Pastel Witch print

Cats of Anime print

Morgana Amelia artwork 

I only picked up two stickers from this store but I love, love their work so can definitely see myself picking up more in the future. I’ve recently started watching Steven Universe (which, I love!!) so could not resist picking up these Pearl and Amethyst stickers.

 

 

 

 

 

I doubt I’ll ever be able to commit to sticking them on anything though because they are just too pretty.

I personally wish I’d picked up this beautiful piece of artwork!!! So if you’re at con and you see their stall, don’t be silly like me and get this before it’s too late!

Weiliwonka stickers 

I for some reason bought a lot of stickers that I’m going to be unable to stick anywhere this con but I just could not resist these two sets of stickers featuring all my Studio Ghibli favourites.

The Custom Cupcake Company cupcakes, fudge and brownies

I couldn’t of course go to con without picking up my favourite fudge in the entire world. Both Martin and I picked up a box (which, surprisingly are still partly intact). As always the staff were super friendly and helpful and everything was covered in glitter – I can never fault them!

 

 

 

 

 

So here it is my small(ish) MCM London Comic Con haul. I hope everyone who went to con had a great time and please do comment below with what you picked up or any artists’ work you admire!

April (April is the Cruellest Month)

-Blog posts Thursday and Sundays- 

Mini Lush Haul/Review: August 2017

(For some reason it looks like the bath bomb has a hair embedded in it- it didn’t- it must of been part of one of the flowers!)

I have watched (though ironically not read) a lot of Lush hauls in my time so I know the market is a little bit oversaturated but I still thought why not add my own Lush haul to the mix? Plus, you know then my content for two posts straight will be exclusively about bath stuff.

Right, so first let’s start with a bit about Lush as a company, since you know in regards to both clothing and cosmetics (etc.) I like to give any information about the company that I have found. In regards to being cruelty free Lush do not buy any raw materials that have been tested on animals. However, due to the new REACH chemical legislation Lush are not completely cruelty free because: ‘If a supplier gets involved in animal testing due to the unavoidable requirements of meeting the requirements of REACH legislation, we have to ‘accept’ this’. Their products however are all vegetarian, with a lot being vegan, and a lot of people still include them on cruelty free lists because of the dedication they have put towards being cruelty free over the years, and the strength of their other policies. Therefore, Lush is one of those I’m going to call “middle ground” companies  (like makeup brands where the ‘parent’ company is not cruelty free but the brand you are buying for is), where it’s up to you if you want to buy from them or not. Personally, I am trying to make my beauty routine completely cruelty free at the moment (which, I’m going to write a post about soon) and am not sure where I lie on this debate. I have seen Lush’s history of fighting against animal testing and how they continuously protest against what is happening, and the fact that their ingredients are vegetarian (and vegan at times) does appeal to me. I’d love however to hear everyone’s thoughts- in my mind though I don’t have an issue with anyone who uses Lush, and considers themselves cruelty free. If anyone’s interested I’ve also labelled whether the ingredients for each product are vegetarian or vegan.

Now on the haul. First of all if I’m being honest, I got this haul in July (not August- I thought the title would be confusing otherwise) because I was really stressed, and just needed a little treat. I thought some Lush stuff, and a nice bath would help. Which it did, but I was still stressed (dissertation pressure), though it definitely took the edge off.

“DON’T LOOK AT ME” Face Mask 

Don't Look at Me Fresh Face Mask(Apologises for my awful nails.) 

Don't Look At Me Mask

So I bought this because I wanted a face mask that wasn’t so “heavy duty”. I try to drink a lot of the old H20, and at the point I was being really consistent so spot wise I was doing ok. I was looking then for something to just brighten my skin and give it a good glow. So I had a little chat with one of the lovely customer assistants, and she recommended I try the “DON’T LOOK AT ME” face mask. This face mask then is one of their ‘fresh’ ones so you have to keep it in the fridge, and it doesn’t last as long as their other ones (like Mask of Magnaminty for example). I have to say I’m not sure if brightening is the mask’s primary effect but it definitely cleans a lot of the gunk out of your face. I used it recently, as my skin was feeling a bit oily (a product of not eating right and my face getting angry at me), and it did a great job at clearing out my t-zone.

The Mask(With the mask on.) 

Martin Mask(Martin also tried the mask. He was not happy about picture time. Or probably how unevenly I spread it on his face.) 

Face After(After the mask. Sorry there’s no before, I did take one but I was a bit vain and didn’t include it because it was really unflattering! I will make to take ones in future try on’s though.)

The one downside of this mask though is that is smells so overwhelmingly of lemon (and something else I can’t quite put my finger on) and I have to admit it puts me off buying it again. I’d rather buy a different “heavy duty” mask (as I do think this is not so much a “light duty” mask) that doesn’t overwhelm my nostrils as much (ironic I know when talking about Lush products).

Price: £7.25/75g 

Rating: 3/5 

This product is VEGAN. 

“Bunny Moon” Jelly Face Mask 

Bunny Moon

So I’m going to be honest I bought this because when I prodded the sample it wiggled. Also, honey is one of my favourite smells so I had to pick the one that smelled like honey up. Basically, how it works is you grab some of the jelly, work it into a paste with your hands and then apply the paste onto your face. I found it a little annoying to work with at times, but once you get used to it’s mostly fine. Plus, your skin will feels so soft afterwards (I put this on generally after the “DON’T LOOK AT ME” mask to get a bit of hydration back into my skin). The only other downside of this mask is that because of the paste texture I find it a bit hard to wash off, as it seems to want to combine with water more than anything. I’d definitely be interested in trying some more of these out, especially as they all appear to have different effects.

Price: £6.95 each.

Rating: 3/5

This product is NOT VEGAN. It is however VEGETARIAN. 

Now on to the bath bombs…

“Titsy Tosty” Bath Bomb 

Titsy Tosty

Ok, so this bath bomb is just so pretty. It’d make such a great themed Valentine’s day present. However, the lovely shop assistant who served me at the till at Lush told me that these are going to be out of circulation soon. Something, which I found confirmed on the Lush website. You may still be able to find these in some stores however I’m assuming. I can’t remember the price of the bath bomb, however, and since it’s no longer online I can’t check. I do think though that it’s just about their average price so somewhere in the four pounds range. I also got some awesome video footage (check me out) of this as it dissolved in my bath, which will be on my Instagram: @aprilisthecruellestmonthblog and on my Instagram story on my main account @aprilisthecruellestmonth. I would put it on here but I need to upgrade my plan in order to include video footage, and unfortunately I’m not financially able to at the moment. Overall, this bath bomb is for you if you don’t mind having a bath full of dead flowers in order to get that vintage, Tumblr-esque vibe going on (they also get stuck in the drain afterwards which means you have to fish them out). I did though feel quite soft afterwards, which is always a bonus.

Titsy Tosty 2

Rating: 3/5 

This product is VEGAN. (Update: Found it for $6.95 on the American website so my according to Google this made it £5.39, but I genuinely don’t remember it being that pricey). 

“Dragon’s Egg” Bath Bomb

Dragon's Egg 1

Ok, so it said in the description that there was popping candy in this bath bomb so it makes popping noises as it settles into your bath. I don’t know if it was just that my extractor fan in my bathroom was loud, but no noise did I hear my bath bomb make. It did make the bath water go orange though, and a lot more ORANGE than the photograph is making it seem- the lighting in the bathroom was just terrible. Overall, it was a nice bath bomb I was just hoping for more colours and magic based on the description, and it fell a little flat for me.

Dragon's Egg 2

Orange Water(My bath water with the bomb in there.) 

Price: £3.95 each

Rating: 2/5 (see it’s finally not 3/5!)  

This product is VEGAN. 

“Metamorphosis” Bath Bomb

So this was a purchase for the Martin in my life, as I know he would not be happy if he didn’t get a present in my little splurge. I thought it looked a bit like a dragon’s egg so thought he’d appreciate it because he is obsessed with Game of Thrones. Plus, he’s definitely more into the darker, and cool tone palette than bright tones. However, there is no rating for this product because he is yet to try it out, and I have no pictures because I’ve just moved and have not unpacked enough yet (still!) to be able to attempt to find it!

Price: £4.25 each. 

Rating: Unclassified (because Martin is yet to try it out, so here is yet another incomplete review!) 

This product is VEGAN. 

So that’s the end of my little Lush haul. Let me know if you’ve been enjoying these little review/ haul type posts about bath products, or if there any posts you’d like to see more of. For anyone who enjoys my feminist reading journey series news of that will be coming very soon so until next time!

Game of Thrones (Foams) Geeky Clean Bath Haul

So I’m finally back to blogging! My dissertation is done, so I provisionally have a Masters degree, and I’ve just moved into a new flat. Everything then is still definitely all systems go at the moment but I’ve missed blogging and getting regular content out so much, and I’m hoping that I can manage to start to maintain posting twice a week! I’m thinking Mondays and Fridays so there’s one post to start the week and one to finish the week off. Also, since I want to keep my main Instagram a bit more aesthetic (blame the amazing Youtuber PixieLocks who I got the idea from) I’ve got a new Instagram just for blog content : @aprilisthecruellestmonthblog so if you’re interested check me out there. I’ll still post stuff about my every day life in my main account: @aprilisthecruellestmonth but a lot of it will mostly be in my story, and my feed content will be a lot more fashion based.

However, enough of that let’s get on with this haul/ review of Geeky Clean’s June (yes, I’m behind, I know, I’ll explain in a bit) Game of Thrones themed, ‘Game of Foams’ (I appreciate the strong pun game) crate. So first of all the reason its took me so long to get to this is because in June I thought I might be moving back home, so thought I better send the crate to my mum, and basically I wasn’t able to see her to pick it up, till like a week or two ago. I’d like to note though that I actually stupidly emailed them and asked them to change it to my mum’s address in a panic, and, they were super accommodating and replied super fast! However, since Game of Thrones is currently on air, it actually has turned out to apt time to do this review.

First of all, let’s start with a little background on the company I ordered from. So Geeky Clean is an independent bath, beauty, candles (you name it) company who specialise in products based on fandoms. All their products are cruelty free, and vegan so that gets a big tick from me. I actually first saw them at MCM London Comic Con in May, and after smelling their Harry Potter ‘Butterbeer’ candle I was obsessed so grabbed a business card, and checked out their website. It was there that I saw that they do a monthly themed crate. Each crate is £15 (shipping is then £4.50 in the UK on top of that- not saying that to bash them or anything, as I have no issue with charging shipping, I’m just making everyone aware). Each crate contains a soap, bath bomb, candle and 2 mystery items!

The crate I received contained, ‘Mother of Dragons’ body lotion (scented with dragonsblood), ‘Wild Fire’ soy wax candle (scented with smoke, wood and mist), ‘Great Grass Sea’ bath sherbet’ (scented with herbs, patchouli and sea breeze), ‘Dracarys Dragon Soap’ (scented with cedar, patchouli, vetiver and fresh pine) and ‘Stallion Heart Soap’ (scented with lily, herbs and greenery).

Game of Foams

Let me tell you first of all, that it all smells amazing. The body lotion is a particular favourite of mine, because it soaks in so fast, and doesn’t leave you with that horrible greasy lotion feeling afterwards. If they stocked it on the website I would definitely buy it again, and again. I’m not sure what dragonblood is supposed to smell like but to me it smells like a fresh, smoky scent if that makes sense (and by smoky I don’t mean like you burnt your pizza smell). In fact, all of the crate smells very ‘fresh’ and like you was just in the middle of a field after hanging out with dragons, which you know is all you would want from a Game of Thrones themed product.

I have only managed to use the lotion and the heart soap so far so I can only talk about them, but they were so good that I couldn’t wait to review the rest of the products before posting this. The heart soap first of all gets a 10/10 for being so incredibly detailed and flawless. Although, it does take a bit to later up, which is probably due to the shape, once you get it going you can get a really good lather going. It’s also perfect if you’re like me and want to just use it to recreate Game of Thrones scenes.

I’ve already discussed a bit about the order process, but I’ll just go into a bit more detail for those interested. So I ordered my crate on the 1st June, and the way Geeky Clean do their monthly subscription box is that you have a few days at the start of each month (can’t remember exactly how many sorry) where you can order the crate, and they are then delivered to you at the end of the month. So my box was dispatched on the 29th, and I think as far as I remember it arrived a few days after that.

The reason they don’t just have a ongoing subscription service is because each month as a different theme, and you just really might not be interested in a theme for one of the months. Their last theme for example was ‘Magical Girls’ (which, I am so gutted that I missed).

Overall, I definitely recommend their products for someone who likes bath stuff that is a bit different and like to support smaller, independent businesses that really put their heart and soul into what they do. Also, leave me a comment if you’d like me to do a post reviewing the rest of the crate once I’ve used it. I really want to try the sherbet especially, but I mostly take showers for speed, but  I will make the effort to have a bath soon if people are interested! I also haven’t used the dragon soap because it’s so pretty and I don’t want to ruin the pattern. If you want to see more hauls from this company let me know, as to be honest it just gives me an excuse to buy loads of their products.
