February Monthly Wishlist Update

17:25 Kelly Wheelhouse 0 Comments

I have been sat here thinking about doing another monthly wishlist for this month, but I am at a loss. I can't think of a single thing I want this month, so I felt that it would be best if I did a little update telling you which items I managed to purchase, and which I didn't.

Tammy Floral Printed Skater Dress
Did I purchase this item?
No
For the past month I have been trying and trying to find a new dress in stores for the warmer weather, but haven't had any luck. The reason I didn't purchase this is because I hate purchasing clothing online. Something may look a certain way on a model in a photograph, but may look completely different once on my body. I have a very odd body type that doesn't suit most styles of dresses, so it makes me a little reluctant to purchase any clothing (especially dresses) online. 

Marc B Denim Blue Shoulder Bag
Did I purchase this item? 
No
Going back to my point about things looking different online than in the flesh- this is a perfect example of that. I found this bag in T K Maxx Nottingham and it looks nice, but the quality is awful. It is also extremely heavy due to all the metal on the shoulder strap, and the style of bag doesn't suit me at all. I think it is a shame because I am still looking for a new handbag, but haven't been able to find the right one as of yet.

Polaroid 40.5mm Polarizer Lens Filter
Did I purchase this item?
Sort of
After asking the advise of some photographers in a local Facebook photography group, I decided I would purchase a different brand of filter. I eventually went for the Hoya brand Polarizer. It was a little more expensive than this Polaroid version, but the photographers guaranteed me that the Hoya one would be better quality. I am yet to use the filter though, as I haven't done any photography of water, skies, or reflective surfaces yet.

Anna Pop Vinyl Figure
Did I purchase this item?
No
Forbidden Planet in Nottingham didn't have this version of Anna in stock. They had Young Anna, but not original Anna. I found her in HMV, but it was much more expensive. For a normal Funko Pop I am only willing to pay £10, and it was more than that in HMV, which is a shame. I am still on the look out for this POP! I was thinking of purchasing it online, but I have heard from other people that many times they will arrive with damaged boxes. Have you had experience buying POP's online? If so, let me know what condition they arrived in.

Zoella Blissful Mistful 
Did I purchase this item?
No
I'm so mad about this. I actually forgot to see if it was in Nottingham's Superdrug. I completely forgot to purchase this item. I only remembered when looking back upon my wishlist. I am going back to Nottingham over Easter, so hopefully I will remember to purchase it then.

So, I really didn't buy much from my wishlist. I purchased one item, which was a different brand to the one I originally wished for. Hopefully when I do an April Wishlist I will be able to update you again and I will have purchased at least 2 more of these items. And hopefully I will be able to get a new handbag and dress soon.
