Sakura-Con 2018 Recap!

Hi Lovely!

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.

What I’ve been Up To

Hi Lovely!

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!

Kawaii Store Review Featuring Modes4u!

Disclaimer: I received these items in exchange for a review. All opinions expressed are my own. 

Hi Lovely!

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!

How to Buy Kawaii Items From Japan Using a Personal Shopper

Hi Lovely!

I receive a lot of questions about how I shop and buy stuff from Japan. I’ve learned a lot over the past year and I’d love to share that knowledge with you! It all started last year when I watched a video by Dollastic. She purchased a few items from a personal shopper in Japan and highly recommended her. I had no idea it was even a thing! There are people that shop for you?! What?? So, I looked into it. I started with following the shopper whom Dollastic had suggested which lead to finding a ton more personal shoppers in Japan. I’ve now bonded with wonderful individuals in another country all over a common love of cute stuff. It’s pretty cool!

Below are a few of my favorite personal shoppers. I hope you enjoy learning about them and their services!
