Kawaii Store Review Featuring Modes4u!

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!

Super-Cute Dress from eShakti!

Hi Lovely!!

I’m so excited to share this adorable dress eShakti sent me! As a short gal who is not super-skinny, I have a hard time finding dresses that fit and are the length I prefer. As you know, when you go up in size the length gets longer and longer. What I love about eShakti dresses is that I can have them made so they fit my height. This is the third dress I’ve ordered from eShakti and every one has fit me perfectly! Alright on to the dress!

Expect Nothing and Appreciate Everything

Hi Lovely!!

This February has already been a whirlwind. It’s nearly Valentine’s Day which means it’s really close to our closing date on our new house AND it’s almost my birthday. So much coming up!!! February has been both exciting and overwhelming. Most nights have been filled with packing, which is not as exciting but necessary.

February for me is a tough time of the year. My birthday falls just a few days before the anniversary of my Mom passing and last year’s birthday celebration was not as much as a distraction as I hoped. Last year was really hard and I had hoped that I’d be able to do something special this year. As you can imagine with our closing schedule that isn’t necessarily possible. Yes, buying a house is exciting but I’m also reminded of the fact that I don’t get to share that excitement with my Mom.

Tooting the horn for alpacacorns

Hi Lovely!

I hope you’re having a spectacular day! Over the weekend I spent some quality time with Fletch and our wonderful friend, Akira! It was so fun!! We decided to drive up to Seattle to try out souffle cheesecake. It was pretty darn good! The cafe we went to offered slices of the souffle cheesecake and they were a little small for the price. With that said, it is Seattle so things are a little pricier than I’m used to. Anywho, I thought it was yummy and hope I can try it again sometime soon!

Since we were going to be driving I decided to wear something comfy. I also didn’t know how much cheesecake we’d be eating so a stretchy material was a must! I settled on wearing my super-adorable alpacacorn dress. It was the perfect choice for a cute (and comfy) day.

I bought myself this dress a few years ago and absolutely adore it. I had been eyeing dresses from this company for a while before finally making a purchase. I chose this as my first purchase because I loved the adorable little alpacacones and the cute little star details all over the dress. When I wear this little number I feel super-kawaii. How can you not have a great day when wearing this cutie?!

Have you done anything fun recently? Have you tried souffle cheesecake?! Let me know!

The most important things in life

Hello Lovely,

How is it already February?! Does anyone else feel like January flew by? So far February has been a whirlwind for Fletch and I. At the end of the month we’ll be moving so most of our free time is being spent packing. It’s crazy to think in a few weeks we’ll be out of this house and moving into a new one. I’m excited (and a bit nervous) for this big change.

On February 25th I’ll be turning 29. Per usual, my birthday is causing me to reflect. I’ve been thinking a lot about friendships, fostering meaningful connections, and spending quality time with others. I feel like as we age it becomes more difficult to make friends and remain connected. We get so focused on the daily grind that we forget to let those we love know we care.
