SPOTLIGHT: Betty Turbo x Punky Pins

 

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Hey everyone!
Today I wanted to do a quick spotlight on a new jewelry collection
It's a collaboration between Punky Pins and artist Betty Turbo

Betty Turbo is an all round rad babe and I was thrilled to see this new collection
It's filled with girl power and a tongue-in-cheek feminist punch ♥

Here are a few of my favourite pieces~
An adorable take on a rather serious problem
I think most women have experienced catcalling once in their lives
and this kitty's face is a picture perfect image of how we all look in response

This illustrated piece just screams "Betty Turbo" to me
I've always loved the way she draws crystals!
Having Feminist written on such a pretty crystal really gives me a Magical Girl feeling
Like wearing this would give me turn me in to Sailor Moon ♥

This piece is just lovely with a raised design and an incredibly sassy lady
(I almost referred to her as a babe... but I guess I shouldn't!)
The colours work so well together int his piece, I want to eat it

Everyone loves some girl gang pride and I think these earrings are AMAZING
I love the little lightening bolt on the lipstick and... they just kick ass ok!


Those are just a few of the pieces available in the Feminist Killjoy collection
So if any of these take your fancy, be sure to check out the full collection

and whilst you're at it, be sure to give artist Betty Turbo some love too!

SNAPSHOT SUNDAY

 (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Hey everyone!
Welcome to Snapshot Sunday
A weekly installment of photo's from my phone
These posts may not always be fulfilling content-wise
But I hope you enjoy them none-the-less ♥ 

 I knew Star Wars Tsum's were coming, but I didn't know when!
So their release took me by surprise and a lot of them sold out straight away
Thankfully I managed to grab a few of my favourites ♥

苺のショートケーキ味 ポテトチップス ★ Strawberry Shortcake Potato Chips

 After buying Japanese snacks online for many years now
I consider myself somewhat of a veteran
Not much "shocks" me anymore, but these... these crisps
They fill me with fear!

England doesn't really mix sweet and savoury with their foods
I'd say the closest thing you'll find is Sweet n Sour sauce from a Chinese Takeaway
and I still find it weird when I see people putting ham and cheese in croissants
So these crisps are like a little bag of Culture Shock for me

But still curiosity killed the cat and I couldn't miss the opportunity to try something so unusual 

 The packaging is really cute, though I'm not to sure what that wizard guy is

When opening the bag there wasn't an overwhelming sweet smell like I expected
It was kind of ordinary, like regular salted crisps
But the more you sniffed the more you realised something else was there

I took so many photo's of these on the plate, I think I was stalling
But then I finally took a potato chip AND ATE IT 
(10 points if you get my weeb reference)

and... at this point I realised 
I've never actually had a strawberry shortcake before haha

So I can't make any direct comparisons to the actual product
But it wasn't far off what I'd expect a shortcake to taste like, minus the lingering potato
They were very similar to strawberries that had been coated in sugar
There was even that "zing" sensation that strawberries sometimes have too

All in all, not bad!
Sure, these aren't something I'd eat every day but all my worry was for nothing
I honestly thought I'd be throwing these away after the review 
But I ate the whole packet! (゜o゜)





RATING: 3.5 / 5 (worth the try!)

Long time no snap post~
It's for a few reasons, first I don't always have a lot to post
and I also worry about these posts appearing too frequently on my blog

If you have any preferences about these posts, be sure to let me know!

 Time for adventure!
