Kylo tries: goodies

Last week very kindly sent Kylo some Grain Free Dog Food and some Natural Dog Treats to try. Kylo was super excited, not that you can tell from this photo. We have established during this process that she doesn't like packets to touch her, it does not go well, so we did our best. Obviously we couldn't try everything straight away so Kylo was not happy, the looks she gave me that day were immense. And for some reason, I decided to take some photos portrait and some landscape so enjoy :D

Kylo: Diary of a Toy Killer- B&M Festive Faces Reindeer Squeaker

We missed another Sunday last week because of laptop issues and it feels like I am having to catch up with my destruction. I have gone through loads of tennis balls this week but you don't want to know about those, so here is my latest!

Wild Bangarang GAMER Bangarang Box

Wild Bangarang is one of my favourite brands, I don't own many pairs of their leggings, but I do love them so, so much. They are amazing quality, with a print that doesn't stretch and fade, even on my ample behind, so they are definitely worth the slightly higher price tag than what I would normally pay. My first pair (The Sylvanas 'Legion' Leggings) was a present from Jim for my birthday this year and since then I have managed to acquire the Horde leggings, and then this pair makes my third. 

The Bangarang Box is a monthly thing that they do where they put kind of a pre-order up for one weekend, with limited units and it will contain one pair of leggings and one tee under a theme. The October theme was 'GAMER' and once I saw that I was in!

The photos in this post are a bit rubbish. I did plan to have proper photos of me wearing them but I've been in a lot of pain lately so am not very mobile and I'm having one of those 'fat days' that has lasted about a week now, just typical human stuff, man are we fragile! Anyway, I took a load of photos, promptly deleted them all and was left with these.

Widowmaker Here!

I have had this beauty sat on my desk for quite a while now and while I have worn it a few times, I haven't actually posted it on the blog because I couldn't quite get it right. I had tried looks very similar to this but with different colours for the nail art but they didn't show up very well in any of the photo's I took. This time, I tested a few different colours and then decided white was perfect.

Zoya Elphie

I am mildly obsessed with Zoya Pixie Dusts, well, as obsessed as my bank account lets me be, which is a lot less than I would like but here we are. As far as textured polishes go, most of the Pixie Dusts are pretty perfect and the other week, as it is coming up to Christmas (yes! I said the 'C' word) I wanted a sparkly, green, textured polish. I popped over to Nail Polish Direct, having never realised before that they sell Zoya's but then to also notice that they were (at the time) having a sale on them and I grabbed Elphie and one other, which you'll see on the blog soon.

Elphie is a gorgeous, emerald green with a green sparkle and is from the 2016 Enchanted Holiday Collection from what I can find. It has a great formula and applied beautifully, it was perfect in 2 coats. It dries quickly and on the first coat it an take a little while for the texture to be prominent but it does fix itself eventually. It has fantastic wear and got a lot of compliments.

As with all and any textured polishes, when it finally comes time to take them off it is definitely tough, you get a good workout from it but if you wear textured polishes often then you know what you are getting yourself in for, plus the removal doesn't negate the fact that this polish is all the pretty!

Nail Polish Direct have pretty much got their Pixie Dust side of things covered if you fancy any and there are pretty well priced, there are a few I have my eye on still. How do you feel about textured polishes?

We're close to the middle of the week, we can do it, I know it's one of those weird weeks but you got this!

Loot Crate: Mythical

The October Loot Crate theme was Mythical and was taking a look across the planes and exploring beyond what science can explain, creatures beyond imagination, items from some of my favourite franchises. So I was pretty happy with this month's crate, let's see what you think!

Espionage Cosmetics Steampunk

Remember, remember the fifth of November...

Ok, so these nails aren't very fireworky but Saturday's seem to have become my Espionage Cosmetics day, and these awesome and glittery Steampunk wraps were in my pile of goodness. 

These wraps are glossy and have loads of glitter accents including one super glittery accent wrap. Steampunk fascinates me but I don't actually own anything Steampunky apart from little metal slices of cogs, so i stuck one to my finger, it's kind of a coll look, right?!

These aren't currently in stock but there are 2 newer versions, just pop over here to check them out! Also, for a limited time only, Espionage Cosmetics have opened up the sale of subscriber only wraps, so if you were eyeing up one (or more) of the sets that were only available to Nexus or BOOM!Box subscribers, then now's your chance! 

Hope you all have an awesome firework night, if you're in the UK and Saturday if you are elsewhere, but be safe. I'll be curled up with a very nervous furbaby, it has already started.

Geek Fuel October 2017

This month's Geek Fuel magazine was a really cool, 3D, Walking Dead cover and it came with some 3D glasses that look like the old View Master, so you could look at it. It had some cool stuff in it with some art work in the inside cover of a milk carton with missing Barb on it. And the back inside cover was also 3D. It's a fab idea. It's started off good, let's see if they kept it going.
