Headphones upgrade! One of my first posts was on iLuv Headphones which are a budget pair of headphones that look cute in the pastel tones they have but I recently found that I couldn't wear them for too long as they put too much pressure on my ears. Unless they were meant for kids or something I don't know why its like this. I decided to spend a bit more money and get some proper headphones and these were the result. I originally saw these Philips Citiscape Frames on the urban outfitters site where they also had them in a tortoiseshell colourway which I spent too long deliberating on whether I should spend the money on and they sold out. Annoyingly, I couldn't find them anywhere else so I got these black ones which I love as well. They are styled on sunglasses (hence 'frames') which I think is a really cool feature. They have a denim style fabric on the band which I believe adds a bit more comfort. Its safe to say I don't have the same problem with these as with my previous headphones.
Also loving the packaging it came in and the pattern inside to compliment the headphones shape.
Secondly are the new gift sets Benefit have brought out for Christmas. They knock down the price it would cost to normally buy the items inside separately and give you it in a pretty tin. It has really smart packaging and you also get a little booklet with tips for putting the make up on.
Nerd mode activate! It was my birthday this month so I went a bit mad with the anime/manga/gaming habit I have. I bought Pokemon X from Argos who give you a free poster with the game that is double sided. I love the brush stroke style on the first side. With Madoka Magica I had only seen the first episode of the original version and thought it was interesting. I read a few reviews that said it wasn't like the usual 'magical girl' anime and was intrigued. I was really impressed when I watched it (marathon style) and I loved the music. I definitely recommend it if you like anime.
