There have been times recently where I’ve found myself comparing myself to others. Yes, of course, comparison is the thief of joy. I know that. It’s just hard to always listen to your brain when your heart feels like you’re not doing well or you’re unsuccessful. With that said, more recently, I also had an epiphany. I realized that I have a LOT to be grateful for. When we get into a rut of comparing ourselves to others it can be easy to continue to dig ourselves deeper. I’m thankful that I had moments recently to help pull me out of that.
I had a blast at this year’s Sakura-Con and I’m super excited to tell you all about it! This year I was able to attend as press which is awesome! It takes some stress off financially and allows me to share my experience with you!
This year’s con was my favorite! Fletch and I took it easy and mostly just walked around. We planned ahead and brought food (always a good idea) so we didn’t have to stress about figuring out what to get. Fletch was amazing the whole time. Even though it’s not really his scene he was a good sport about it and really helped by taking photos and filming.
My wonderful friend at Craftyourdream on Etsy recently sent me an amazing box of goodies to share with you! I met this amazing seller through Etsy after making a few purchases from her. She’s super-sweet and really talented! I love everything in her shop and am slowly filling my cutedio with her products.
I know I’ve been very random with my posting. I’m so sorry! Moving has definitely taken more of my energy than I expected. This weekend Fletch and I basically finished unpacking and decorating so I’m ready to get back in the swing of blogging. Yay!!! This weekend’s focus was hanging art. It took most of our Saturday but by the end of it I felt really proud and accomplished.
Now I’m trying to get back into a routine. It has definitely been a challenge! The past two weekends have been focused on the house. Whether it’s unpacking, decorating, or fixing things, It’s been all house, all the time. Now that almost everything is done I’m going to focus on figuring out what we need to fix over time and make a plan for it. Fletch and I don’t have much experience with home improvement so this will be a great learning experience.
So yeah, house stuff has been good! Fletch and I don’t have much going on this week and I look forward to the break! The only thing I have left to do is put together a shelf for the shower, but I’ve been putting that off.
What have you been up to my lovely friend?!?! I’d love to catch up!
Disclaimer: I received these items in exchange for a review. All opinions expressed are my own.
I’m so excited to share a super-kawaii review with you! I was recently contacted by Modes4u to do a review and I literally squealed with joy. Modes4u is one of my favorite online stores. I’ve made a few purchases with them, most of them including Re-Ment blind boxes, and have always had a great experience.
The lovely team over at the shop let me pick four items to receive and review. I decided to go with a few Re-Ment blind boxes and one small plush. The goodies were packaged well and arrived safely. All of the items were even cuter in person!
I was so excited to open up my blind boxes. I love the thrill of it! I even filmed a little unboxing for you!! If you want to see which figures I got you’ll have to watch.
Overall I give these products two thumbs up!! I absolutely adore this kawaii shop and would recommend you check it out. Beyond Re-Ment boxes, they have plush toys, squishies, fabric, ribbon, stationary, and so much more!!
If you head over to the shop be sure to tell me what you like!
