Currently I'm... { September edition } ♪

It's time for the September issue of Currently I'm...!

 The other day when I visited my mum we were talking about recipes because my mum had found this new feature on her laptop that opened up lots of different recipes. So, I took pictures on my phone of the recipes to try later on! This is one of the things I made; a chicken and mushroom pie, customised with the letter's of our first names and a little heart. They were really nice pies too! I just happened to make them really really big so it was difficult to finish the whole pie o口(・∀・ )

And I've finally opened my Bertie Botts every flavour beans! I tried some of the horrible flavours and I really can't eat the vomit and rotten egg flavours (′︿‵。) The soap flavoured bean is actually really nice though! And the sherbet lemon, marshmallow and candyfloss flavoured beans are amazing though. I'd buy them if they were in their own kind of packet ♡

My honey and I went to the HMV in Birmingham when we went on our Sushi date last week and we ended up picking up some new DVDs~ My honey picked up some new comedy DVDs and I picked up some new world cinema DVDs. I picked up a copy of Battle Royale which is such a classic film and I can not believe I haven't got it yet! I also picked up a French DVD called The Horde, which is a zombie film, which sounded quite interesting so I can not wait to watch it and see what it is like! (ノ^∇^)

I've currently started playing Candy Crush Saga again a lot lately! I'm currently stuck on level 414 and I've been stuck on it for a few days now. I'm finding it a lot of fun again though. I did stop playing for months because I was getting annoyed because I couldn't get any further (this game can get quite infuriating!) ~(>_<~) but I'm slowly getting further now!

 Super Junior are back! I did blog about my Song of the Week a few days ago, but I'm still listening the album because it is so good. I've missed them so much! There is also a video on their official YouTube account about Super Show 6 which is meant to be a worldwide tour, and so far I haven't seen the mention of a UK date anywhere, but I am super sure that I am not going to miss that show if there is one in the UK! ♪( ´θ`)ノ

My honey and I are going to Blackpool in October! My honey has booked us a hotel and we're going to spend some time in Blackpool together~ I went to Blackpool a few years ago for my birthday and it was a lot of fun. During that time I went on a few nights out and got a little drunk. This time it's going to be nice and relaxing though. I can not wait to get into some of the arcades and have some fun and kick my honey's butt! “ヽ(´▽`)ノ”

Characters I'd like to cosplay ★

My honey and I are planning to go to the MCM Comic Con in Birmingham again this year~ (•‿•)

And my honey asked me the other day if we are going to dress up for it this time. Last time I just went in Gyaru ♡

So this time I would really love to cosplay or dress up! (๑✧◡✧๑)

But it also got me thinking about which characters I  would love to cosplay!

So I made this list to share with you~ (o^^)o

Bulma from Dragonball 

Image sources~

I've always loved this costume of Bulma's~ I would either cosplay with this costume or as her bunny girl costume, but I'd only do her bunny girl costume if I was much more thinner. Either way, this would be a pretty simple cosplay to put together (especially for a novice like myself!) *(*´∀`*)☆

Sakura Kinomoto from Cardcaptor Sakura

Image sources~

There are so many costumes from Cardcaptor Sakura to choose from, and I have quite a few favourites, but this dress is one of my all time favourites because it's so cute and puffy and has giant wings (´♡‿♡`+)

Alice from Alice: Madness Returns

Image sources~

I love the royal suit dress from Alice: Madness returns! ♡ I love quite a lot of the costumes from the game, but I especially fell in love with this one. If I'd ever cosplay as Alice though I would love to make a hobby horse to carry around because that weapon is awesome ヽ(‘ ∇‘ )ノ

Eternal Sailor Moon from Sailor Moon 

Image sources~

There are a few variations of Sailor Moon's costume to choose from, but I really love the eternal Sailor Moon costume with the big wings. I've always wanted to cosplay Sailor Moon since I first started watching the anime! ~ヾ(^∇^)

Mana-sama from MALICE MIZER

Image sources~

I'm a big fan of Mana and when I was younger I used to base my make-up off of his make-up. My favourite costume of his of all time was from Gardenia. I just love the large tulle skirt of the dress and the tulle train at the back. This would be a dream cosplay! ヾ(@† ▽ †@)ノ

Giselle from Disney's Enchanted

Image sources~

Enchanted is one of my favourite Disney films, and my favourite costume from the film is the dress Giselle made out of the curtains. It's such a beautiful dress. Most of the time I live in a fairytale world in my head! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ

Lulu from Final Fantasy X

Image sources~

Lulu is such an awesome character and her outfit is amazing with the belt detailing at the front. This cosplay would be awesome to do and it would also be fun to carry around a little Moogle at the same time ヘ(^_^ヘ)

Are there any cosplays that you would like to do?

The British tag ☆

I saw this tag on Dorkface and I really wanted to do this~ A lot of people call me very posh and British so now it's time to put it to the test!

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? How many sugars?
I actually hate tea! I can not stand tea (unless it has a strong flavour like peppermint). I just do not like the taste of it. Ahhhh I've failed the British test already!

2. Favourite part of your roast?
Roast potatoes and roast parsnips definetly! My mum makes amazing roasties~ I also enjoy yorkshire puddings as well. I always leave them to the end to mop up the rest of my gravy with

3. Favourite dunking biscuit?

I love ginger biscuits! I actually enjoy almost every kind of biscuit except rich tea biscuits.

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
It's definetly not drinking tea and watching cricket. I do enjoy a good moan every now and again!

5. Favourite word?
I do say bloody and bugger a lot; which are very typical English words. My grandmother hates people using the word bloody.

6. Cockney rhyme slang?
The first one that came to mind was apples and pears; mainly because I remember someone telling me to get up the apple and pears once. For anyone that doesn't know Cockney rhyming slang apples and pears means stairs.

7. Favourite sweet?
I really enjoy flying saucers! I love biting a hole in it and eating the sherbert before eating the rest of the saucer.

8. What would your pub be called?

My honey has always said if he had a pub he'd call it The Walk Inn. I'd probably just steal his ideal because I like the sound of it!

9. No.1 British person?
Stephen Fry! I absolutely love him~ His accent is so beautiful.

10. Favourite shop / Restaurant?
I really love pub food~ I really enjoy a good old fashioned steak and ale pie with mashed potatoes or bangers and mash. I just generally love mashed potatoes.

11. What British song pops into your head?
 British song wise UB40's Red Red Wine pops into my head. I blame my mum's love of UB40! My mum always cooks to the sound of UB40. 

12. Marmite?
I really enjoy marmite! I don't think it is as bad as people make it out to be, but it is an acquired taste.

I tag any lovely British bloggers that would like to do this tag as well~

{ SOTW } MAMACITA / Super Junior ♪

I was really excited this week because Super Junior have made a comeback! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

And Leeteuk is back!! eeeeeeeeeeee (♥ω♥ ) ~ ♪ I have missed watching his beautiful face in Super Junior videos *bias mode*

And the main song they have come back with is called MAMACITA ♡

omg this song is so fun!! ( ^∇^)

The Engrish is so fun in this song (*≧▽≦) I don't find it to be incredibly catchy compared to other Super Junior songs, and it took me a few listens to get really into the song, but now I go around singing "Hey! Mamacita! Naega ayayayaya" from the chorus (*゜▽゜ノノ゛☆

And parts of the music video are hilarious; like Kangin and his watermelon O(≧▽≦)O

I haven't been able to check the album out yet, but when I have a bit more time I will definetly check out the album, because I really enjoy Super Junior's music and their comebacks. 

I've watched a few comeback stages already and they have been quite good (*^▽^*)
