New LINE theme - Cinnamoroll

We love the LINE chat app for keeing in touch with our Japanese family, and one feature we like is the way you can customise the app's appearance to suit your style.  There are loads of themes available, with new ones being released all the time, and to mark Cinnamoroll's 15th anniversary, LINE has released this new kawaii theme:


The theme is predominently light blue, with lots of cute touches of Cinnamoroll and friends!




Even the passcode entry screen is super cute:


It's a must-have for fans of Cinnamoroll!

Miracle Gift Parade Souviners

Back in June last year I blogged about a new super cute parade being shown at Puroland called the Miracle Gift Parade that was designed by one of my all time favourite designers Sebastian Masuda  of 6%DokiDoki! The Parade started after our last visit so we won't get to see it in person, so Mr managed to pick me up a DVD of the Parade! These are available from Puroland for all of their parades and we have quite a collection built up of the ones we have seen during our visits.

As well as DVDs, Puroland also release merchandise for their parades which you can pick up from Puroland or if you are a sneaky ninja like Mr, you can get them online! Knowing how much I loved the parade and with it being designed by Sebastian Masuda, Mr bought me this super cute pair for Christmas!


It's Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel all dressed up in their Miracle Gift Parade outfits! They are both from Puroland and are so detailed! They even have their head gear on! It's a shame we won't get to see the parade live but Mr has brought the experience to us at home! Thank you Mr X

Vinylmation Collection - Designer Series 2

When we visited Disneyland Paris last October we found a shop selling Vinylmation Blind Boxes so we picked a few up to take home. The first series we found was the Designer Series 2 which were designed by Jeff Granito and feature Disney figures that have a good and bad side!


Here is what was available in the series, good side first:


And on the reverse of the good, here's the bad:


We didn't mind which figure we got as they all looked awesome, and when we opened the box.......


We got the mystery figure! Fantasia Mickey Mouse! And isn't he cute! Super detailed and on the reverse, the bad!


Super happy with what we got! We've never got the mystery figure before! There were lots of series available in the store for all sorts of fandoms, so if you love little figures, check out the other series available from Vinylmation!

Yo-kai Watch Snack Selection!

I love Yo-kai Watch and, as long-time readers of the blog will know, I love Japanese snacks.  I was over the moon when PinkuiroPixie got me a mega-variety pack of Yo-kai Watch themed snacks as part of my Christmas stocking!!

First up was this pack of Mini Donuts by Yamazaki - there were four individually wrapped donuts in this pack, and a little Yo-kai Watch sticker!


Next were these two packs of Odango Snacks - Mitarashi Dango flavour - and each came with a sticker (it seems free stickers and cards are quite a popular give-away ^^)


Then there was a Puku Puku Tai style snack in the shape of Jibanyan! It's a light wafer (think an old style ice cream cone) filled with a very light bubbled chocolate. The Jibanyan design is really Kawaii - it even has the notch in his ear!


Then there was a pack of little Yo-kai Watch crackers by Tohato - these little biscuits are that strange 'salad' flavour and each one features a cute picture printed on them.


The next item wasn't a snack, but a pack of stickers (presumably because the last couple of items didn't have any freebies...).  I got Mikannyan (or Oranyan if you prefer) in my pack.


My next snack was this pack of Yo-kai Fushigi Candy - grape flavour sweets!  The pack came with a Data Carddass card (shame we don't have those kinds of machines here!) - I got Tōshirozame (or Shrook if you like).


Then there was Jibanyan no Chocobo - yes, Jibanyan's favourite chocolate bar!


Next was this Yo-kai Watch Busters vanilla wafer - this came with another Data Carddass card; this time I got Tomuyan (straight from the front of the pack!)


Then there was a grape-flavoured lolly - this was a spooky pumpkin shape!


Next was this pack of grape-flavoured chewing gum.  I love Japanese grape-flavoured snacks and drinks!


Finally there was this pack of Oh! Mikuji snacks - salt flavour.  Again, this snack came with a little sticker!


I loved them all - well, except the Salad flavour biscuits...those are an acquired taste I'm afraid!

Iridescence

If you follow me on Instagram you will have spotted my growing love for everything iridescent! It started with a bag from Paperchase and now I can't help but look for it in every shop I pop into! Seeing me drawn to these shiny items, Mr picked me up some super cute Christmas presents to add to my collection. First up is this adorable heart necklace:


It's a holographic, iridescent stars, heart shaped necklace on a thin silver chain from CandyShockUK who you can find on Etsy! This is such a nice piece, it looks so shimmery and delicate and goes with any outfit. The other iridescent gift Mr got me for Christmas was a bow! If you read regularly you will know I love bows and this is now one of my favourites:


This is part of the Aurora Bow collection by ElectricSheepStore on who you can also find on Etsy. It's inspired by the Aurora Borealis and is made from iridescent PVC. They have several available in pink, blue and green. Mr got me the purpl,e which I love! It's a gorgeous bow and really stands out from my dark hair.

So that's what I got for Christmas! I have also picked a few bits up while shopping in Birmingham City Centre the last few weeks. One of my favourite new pieces is a purse I picked up yesterday from Topshop:


I spotted it last week and stupidly didn't buy it so when we popped in again this week Mr made me pick it up because I had been banging on about it all week. It's iridescent front and back and is lined with black inside with plenty of space for everything I carry in my purse. It's by Skinny Dip which is a collection of young British designers based in London, which is awesome! It's always nice to help promote new and up coming designers, especially when they are creating items like this!

H&M also have some iridescent items in stock as I picked up this cute little pouch:


It's only a small pouch but I thought it would be good to store my small make up bits inside my bag so they don't get damaged. This was £2.99 so a bargain for such a cute little item. They had several designs in these little pouches with some in blue and green, and they had some Star Wars pouches!


These are the same size as the first pouch but Star Wars designed. The silver pouch has May The Force Be With You on the reverse side! I know the black pouch isn't iridescent but I love Vader so just had to grab it too! These were £3.99 so again a bargain!

So that's my collection so far, if I find any more iridescent gems I'll let you all know!

It's Almost Valentines Day!

There's one week to go until Valentines Day and if you are looking for a cute and affordable gift for your Kawaii partner then check out the Mickey and Minnie Mouse Valentine Tsum Tsum set:


This is the 2017 Valentines Day set which features Mickey and Minnie Mouse dressed up in super cute Valentines Day outfits and they smell of chocolate! We haven't wanted to take them out of the box as it's sealed but here is the pic on then back showing their cute outfits:


The cutest part of this set is what they feature on their backs:


Each Tsum features half of a cut out heart which when they're placed together makes a heart with 2017 on it! They are still available from the Disney Store online so grab them while you still have time!

My Star Wars Obsession is Growing!

Being a huge fan of Star Wars I have loved seeing all the new merchandise and fashion that has emerged since the Force Awakens was released! If you follow my Instagram you may have spotted a new bag I picked up just before Christmas, and I'm glad to say it's not all I have managed to pick up since the Star Wars resurgence!

On my quest to find bargains at the Disney Store after Christmas I managed to bag (sorry for the pun!) these two!


A matching tote and wallet set! I'm not normally one to buy all over white items as they tend to get grubby easily but when I spotted these I had to grab them! Both the tote and wallet has an all over Storm Trooper print and the small buttons on the front of the bag are also themed:


The inside of the bag is also an all over Star Wars print:


These are awesome items, well made and absolute bargains! The wallet was £9 and the bag was £15! There's plenty of space in both for all of your Kawaii bits and pieces and being all over white they go with most outfits!

I managed to get the bag in this next set before Christmas:


Yes it's a Millennium Falcon Bag! I was so happy I managed to track this down! I had seen it on the Loungefly Twitter feed and just had to find one for myself and I managed to ship it in from America. It's a Millennium Falcon shaped faux leather crossbody bag, the strap is adjustable and the details are awesome! I've worn it few times now and had so many compliments and questions on where I got it! I thought I was lucky enough tracking down the bag and then on Christmas morning, Mr presented me with the matching coin bag! ^^

It's also in the shape of the Millennium Falcon and is super cute! It's a very flat coin bag so I actually carry my cards in it instead of coins, which has turned out to be very handy! It's made out of the same faux leather as the bag and is equally detailed! Both the bag and coin bag are available on the Loungefly website so if you're a fan, bag them while you can!

I can't wait to see what new merch comes out with the next movie!
Catch you later Kawaiisters!
