750 Words: June Challenge Progress

750 Words Mid June

Once again, I’ve signed myself up to the June Challenge over at 750 Words in a push to get myself back into writing regularly. I last attempted this in March where I completed the challenge and learned quite a bit about my writing habits. I took April off, mainly because I was up to my eyeballs at work and couldn’t muster the energy to actively write when I got home every day, then skipped May because I was out of the country for over a week enjoying a holiday with minimal internet access. Now I’m back and here’s how things are going.

Funko Pop Haul: May 2016

Funko Pop Haul May 2016

Hello and good day to you! It’s been a while since my last Funko Pop related post and I figured the timing’s perfect to do a monthly haul for May since I ‘accidentally’ ended up acquiring more Pops than I’d originally intended. To put you in the picture, I tend to have a fairly moderate list of Pops that I’m interested in preordered ahead of time to ensure I pick one up before they become scarce or I miss them for whatever reason. Some of those in my haul this month weren’t expected until next month and another wasn’t due until Nov/Dec.

When’s the ideal time to have your preorders suddenly arrive in stock where payment will then be taken automagically? Why, the minute you’ve almost emptied your account, transferred your currency and flown off on holiday…that’s when! In the last week of May, whilst the other half and I were sunning ourselves in Spain, no less than 4 Funko Pops were being bundled up and posted to me by the lovely folks over at Pop in a Box. Really happy to have them in my collection at last, but the timing could definitely have been better! Without further ado, let’s check out the new additions.

Nintendo Vans Collection

Nintendo Vans Collection

Yes! They finally did it! A quality range of Nintendo themed Vans trainers. The collection also includes T-shirts, socks and backpacks which while being lovely, I sadly have to budget myself very carefully on this one lest I go nuts and buy everything! While we were on holiday in Spain, we stopped by a Vans store that already had a massive Nintendo display out for sale, but couldn’t get anything that late in our trip because we’d budgeted for the last few days. New footwear didn’t factor in…at the time. 😉
