what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul
I took an impromptu hiatus from blogging for a couple of weeks (haven’t been feeling all that great – some kind of stomach bug that has persisted for weeks) but I’ve been trying to get back in the swing of things this last couple of days.
Apart from feeling sorry for myself (I’m terrible when I’m ill haha!) I’ve been replaying Final Fantasy XV and Fallout 4 (comfort games!) and watching the Fear Street trilogy (so much nostalgia…)
- Loki pins from Toynk and Shop Disney: I’ve been a bit obsessed with the new Loki show – Marvel owns my soul haha!
- Wangxian pin from Cosmile Studio on eBay: I am a more than a little bit smitten with the Bazaar photoshoot so this pin was a must-buy…
- Bookish pins by No 0ne Designs Shop: I am in love with these Cruel Prince, Winternight, and Song of Achilles pins!
- MXTX and 2HA themed postcards from Redbubble: It’s a bit of a tradition that I get prints from Redbubble on my birthday and Christmas!
- Shen Qingqiu and Luo Binghe nendoroids from Nendoworld: I am so happy to finally have these cuties in my collection!
- WangXian pins and Wang Yibo pin from AliExpress: I have had my eye on these pins for ages and now I finally own them – they are awesome!
- A Lifetime Ago: A Yunmeng Jiang Duo pin set from Ren Doodles: OGM, these pins are so gorgeous! I love them so!
- Lan Wangji print from ASILLU on Etsy: this print is just super-stunning in person! The detailing is just fantastic…
