Progress Report

Progress Report 2

 

It has been a little while since my last update, so I thought I would let you all know how my progress has been going since my last post. 

Perfect World 3 is still out for beta reading and I hope to receive all the feedback by the end of the year. In the meantime, I have finished the cover design and drafted the summary. I am really having to restrain myself when it comes to putting that out as I want to wait until everything is ready before the cover reveal. I hope to be able to do this in January, which is not too far off now! I am also drafting book 4 in the series so hopefully there will not be such a massive gap between releases this time!

I am also writing the second draft of Demon’s Past which is the next novel in my Demon’s Blood universe. I am really enjoying writing about Taku and Thane’s time together before the events in Demon’s Blood and I cannot wait to share their story with you all. 

In the New Year I would also like to pick up my fantasy novel again. I started this way back for my first NaNoWriMo and I really want to give Fayte and Marnai the story that they deserve. I have it all planned out now, I just need the time to write it! 

I also haven’t forgotten about my new segment on my blog ‘Shari Reviews Stuff’. I have a new review drafted and this should hopefully go up this week. 

So things are busy ‘behind the scenes’ as we reach the end of the year! I hope everyone is keeping well and I will share further updates with you all soon! 

Shari Reviews Stuff: Glitter & Glamours Eternal Sailor Moon Figure

Purchase Link: https://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEODAI-103096

Today I am reviewing the Eternal Sailor Moon Glitter and Glamours figure made by Banpresto. It was a game prize so I ordered it through CD Japan’s Proxy Service. The fees bumped the price up to almost double the listing price, but it was well worth it.

image1This is a beautiful figure and is a lot bigger that I thought she would be! She came in several parts but she was easy to assemble and I did it in under a minute. The detail is amazing and I keep going back over to my cabinet to look at her. The quality is really good for the price too. She’s pretty solid and won’t easily break. There were too versions of this model released in slightly different colours.

I believe there is also a Super Sailor Moon in the same series, that I think I will try to get as well. I love this model so much and she is a beautiful addition to my collection!

Today I have another mystery box review. This time it is some really cute jewellery from ResinbyGlitzycraft! These lucky dips are really good value at £1 each and the postage is very reasonable too! I bought two of these and was very excited for them to arrive. I was not disappointed at all.

image1I received a pair of pretty green earrings and a cute ballerina necklace. The seller also kindly included a couple of extras; a sweet and these adorable stickers as well as a cute thank you card! This was great value for money, and I will be buying more of these in the future!

Happy Sunday everyone! I have another stuff review and today it is of one of my favourite kind of purchases. Mystery boxes! I love the thrill of opening a package and having no idea what goodies are inside! I also love Asian snacks so this was a perfect choice for me!

The box itself was well packaged and the treats came wrapped it this really pretty tissue paper. Also enclosed was this sweet thank you card! If you’re looking to purchase a mystery snack box, then I would definitely recommend this one!

Purchase Link: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/904529808/pink-cloud-slime-fluffy-foam-drizzle

Seller Page: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ScottishSlimeStore

I’ve been wanting to buy some slime for a while as I have seen other reviews online and so I decided to go for it! I was not disappointed.

This slime is really great! It comes in a container and also comes with an activator and two sachets of glitter! I chose to purchase the pink cloud slime. As you can see from the pictures it goes all fluffy when you stretch it! I don’t know much about slime as this is my first purchase, but the consistency is good and not at all sticky. image2

The seller’s Etsy store has loads of different slimes and options to choose from. I will definitely make my future slime purchases from them!

Shari Reviews Stuff: Rebor Dinosaurs

Rebor Dinosaurs

image13

I have recently started collecting Rebor Dinosaur models. These models are beautiful hand-painted replicas of how dinosaurs may have looked like. Honestly, the detail is amazing! I often stop by my collection shelf just to stare at them!

image12The first one I bought was the Compsognathus and then I quickly purchased the Velociraptor, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus as well. The Stego comes in several different finishes. The one I bought is the woodland version.

If you want to get into collecting dinosaur figures, I recommend you check Rebor out as these are very high-quality models. I’m going to get them their own cabinet eventually (they are currently sharing a space with my Sailor Moon collection!). When I do I will post some photos of them in there as I’m planning on making background scenes and neat things like that too!

Shari Reviews Stuff: McFarleyMakes – Splat Rat Bookmark

Another new thing I am trying for my blog is to review some of the cute things that I purchase. This will be done as and when I buy things and when I buy something that I think is super cute or interesting to review! I’m going to be trying to vary my content a bit to cover some of my interests (shopping being one of them!). Please let me know what you think of the varied content. I’d love to hear your opinions!

The first item I’m going to review is a new bookmark that I purchased on Etsy last week. I either use random bits of paper or fold the page corner (I know, that’s terrible!) so I decided to look for a cute bookmark. I am so happy with my choice. It’s so cute and really well made!

This bookmark is absolutely adorable! It is super cute and so well made! It is just perfect for keeping my place! My cat adores it too and several times I have found her pulling it out of my book to play with!

It was sent really quickly and packaged in a small box and tissue paper to protect it. The seller also left a really nice handwritten note hoping that I enjoy it!
