October Wishlist

I'm off to Comic Con at the end of the month, so I can't be going to crazy with purchases right now, but that doesn't mean I can't get a list together of things I'm after. I've been toying with the idea of a new camera now, and though I'm not officially settled on which one, I've added the below one to the list, so at least I have an idea in mind! Hope you're all having a great month so far.

What's on your wishlist for October, and have you picked up any bargains recently? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Products I'm Currently Loving

I love nothing more than a good purchase! I'm a bit of a spendaholic, and though I try to rein it in a bit, I always fail and just think 'one more thing won't hurt the bank account' - I'm always wrong FYI!

However, now and then I'll find something to buy, or am gifted, which I end up loving for a variety of reasons. Here are a few products that have been a blessing this year! Each item title is linked to the product, so you can go view it for yourselves.

Computer Glass
I've worn these for use on my laptop, longtime use of my phone, and even at work. I have the ones with no magnify, as I don't need glasses for my sight. These help eliminate the blue light from devices, which are a nasty trigger for my Hemiplegic Migraines, by using a yellow tinted lens. I've also been wearing them at work, as we have no windows at the deli, so it's all artificial light which really hurts my eyes/head too. These have been a blessing, so I wear them frequently!

Identify Theft Roller Stamp
This stamp is something I kept seeing on Facebook ads, and eventually caved in and looked it up on Amazon. It's been a super handy item to own with all the deliveries I keep getting! You simple roll the stamp over the name/address/barcode on any post you get and you cannot see through it. It hides it all perfectly, and you can't see it on the reverse side either, as it penetrates through, making it totally safe. It's saved me stockpiling things up for the shredder so often, and can easily just be stamped and thrown into the bin.

Lenovo Tablet 10
I bought this back in May, and it was a fab decision! I can use this all around, and not have to lug my laptop up and down the stairs. I use this for games, emails, blogging, and to browse when I'm in bed. I bought mine from Argos, but it's currently cheaper over on Amazon. This is only a 16GB tablet, and I wish I had a bigger memory for some apps, but this has linked up to my One Drive nicely, so I can flick between documents on this and my laptop with ease.

Purchased this back during that immense heatwave we had here in the UK. Heat, oh how I miss thee... This was a spur of the moment purchase one night, after having enough of moving my desk fan from there and to my bed each night so I could keep cool. This is rechargeable USB fan, so I could plug it in over night on my nightstand, and it would go all night for me. It was pretty cheap, and arrived quickly for me to use the following evening.

Re-Usable Water Bottle
This link is the closest one I can find to the one my sister bought me! She gifted me this for my birthday, and I've used it everyday since. It's 900ml, and I usually refill it 4-6 times a day. I don't drink any sodas unless I'm out for dinner, so I'm all for water these days. I probably shouldn't drink so much water, but it's hydrating! It has a handy non-spill flip cap, which only works when it's closed - not open as I found out!

I use all of these each day, albeit the fan right now as it's getting colder - but it still comes in handy after a hot shower and I want to cool down quicker! What things have you been given or purchased this year, that have been a great idea for you? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Had another month of being obsessed with all of these songs!! Like any of the songs above? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

My Top 10 Fave Movies

I've spent a lot of my free time this month re-watching a bunch of my fave movies. I love movies, as I can just lose myself in the stories and characters.

Other than the first two, the rest of these films are in no particular order. These are all the film I will watch repeatedly through the year, and the top two DVD's are getting a bit worn now!

The Losers
My all time fave movie, with an amazing vast. This came out in 2010 and I have yet to find a film that I enjoy as much. It stars Chris Evans, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, and others. It's loosely based off the comics of the same name - full of action and with a few funny moments along the way.

Oceans 11
Another long time fave, this is one I can always just put on in the background when I'm doing other things. I know the while plot and most of the lines! I have always really enjoyed heist movies, so this is perfect. Not massively keen on the following 2, but they could never beat 11! 

Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Something about this one just makes me love it. It's got some really funny moments as well as more serious parts. I an huge Marvel fan, so seeing them all together again, plus meeting some new character is amazing. This really sets us up for Civil war too. 

Iron Man 
The one that started it all. This is what got me into comic movies and RDJ is the PERFECT casting choice for this role. I've seen this more than all the other MCU films!

Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban
The undisputed best movie of the seven. Literally no Voldemort, just a great story and the introduction to Sirius and Lupin! This is also my fave book, so I'm happy that this film is the closest to the books, compared to the rest of them.

Love Actually
I used to hate movies like this, but this came to me at a time when I was feeling down on myself, and it's become a staple of my faves ever since. I watch it all through Christmas, and a handful during the year - it just makes no happy!

Childhood fave! I wanted to be Mulan after I saw this for the first time. I wanted a sword, a dragon sidekick, and to save China. She never needed a man and I credit her to my way of thinking! I love watching this when I'm having a lazy day, as I quote it as it goes. 

The Expendables
The epitome of action movies, this is a fave. Some of the bear action stars of our time, lots of guns and explosions - plus a good plot. I have all three of the movies, and there are rumors of a fourth one being made, so I really hope this is true! 

Now You See Me
Can't beat a magic movie! Magicians fascinate me, so to have a film about some performing a heist, is perfect for me! I loved how it all fit together and the twist at the end! I want expecting it the first time, and even now I can't quite figure it all out! 

Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants
If I ever need a cry, then this is what I'll put on. I always end up blubbering at the end of it. I bought the books not long ago, so Hopi g to read them soon and see how close the movie was to them. I love the cast and story of this, and makes me wish I had some of their adventures.

What are you fave films, and do we have any of the same in common? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
