Apologies for not doing any blogmas posts for the last few days, I've been concentrating on recovering from this horrible chest infection and spending my time relaxing and preparing for Christmas. Wow! Only one week to go!! I am soooooo excited!!
I'm actually quite proud of myself for sticking to blogmas for so long... I really enjoyed blogging everyday :) To make up for my missing blogmas posts, I'll be posting twice today. I hope you all enjoy reading about my November Kawaii Box. This month's box is one of the best that I've ever received! I always love the items in each Kawaii Box but there's usually a few that are not really my style or things that I can't think of when I'll use them, but the November box is filled with such fantastic items that I adore!
In this month's box: (1) Christmas Puffy Stickers - (2) Squishy Emoticon Bread Charm - (3) 2016 Desktop Calendar - (4) Kawaii Plush Beans - (5) Rain Boot Pen - (6) Cute Bunny Canvas Pouch - (7) Harajuku Bag Charm - (8) Nora Band Highlighter Set - (9) Strawberry Pocky Biscuit Sticks - (10) Kawaii Fruits Hair Pin Set - (11) Cute Christmas Card Set
It was so difficult to choose a favourite item from this month's box because I love so many of them! I've managed to narrow it down to three items: the kawaii bean plushie, the little fruit clips and the 2016 desk calendar. I've wanted one of these pea pod style plushies for ages now and this one is so bright and feels very soft. The three little 'beans' inside are not attached and can be taken out/moved around, which is cool. I've also been wanting a little desk calendar for next year too so it was just perfect that this one arrived in my box. It's adorable! The pages for each month all have a different design & on the back of each page there's a check list. It's only a mini calendar so the boxes for each day are a little small, but that's fine for me because I'll just be using it for reminders. I love cute hair clips and used to wear them all the time when I was younger so I have quite a big collection of them and would like to start wearing them again. I've always been a fan of fruit themed accessories and stationary. My favourite of the bunch is the strawberry clip.
The two items that almost made it into my favourites were the Christmas puffy stickers and the Harajuku bag charm. The puffy stickers that the Kawaii Box Co send me each month are wonderful! These Christmas stickers are lovely... the sheet contains an array of festive characters and they are all so adorable. I wish I would have received my box are little earlier so I could have used the stickers in the Christmas cards I wrote for my family & friends, but I'll happily save them for next year. The bag charm is gorgeous especially since all the individual charms are pastel coloured. It's something that I would buy if I spotted it whilst out shopping. When I look at the charm, it makes me think of the sanrio characters 'Little Twin Stars'. I love it! ♥
I really like the way that Pocky design their boxes! They look so cute, vibrant and detailed. I'm lovin' the polka dot design of these strawberry pocky, but I'll have to gift them to one of my friends because I don't like the taste of the strawberry ones. How sweet is the mini snowman card? What's really awesome about it is that its a bit different to a standard card design and it opens up into a little notecard with lines so I can use it next year for Christmas snailmail :) The pen from this month's box is similar in design to the pen I received in my September Kawaii Box. I like the yellow and grey colour scheme, it's pretty and I think the little boot lid of the pen is awesome. I will never get bored of squishy charms. I really like them, more so when they are designed like donuts or cakes, but this little bread bun squishy is still nice and I'm glad I got a happy, giggly emoticon face on mine.
Who doesn't love getting new stationary!? I can't wait to try out these highlighter pens. I love how they are mini so once I start using the filofax planner I got for my birthday, I can easily keep one or two of them inside. I like the musical themed patterns on the highlighters and how each has a different character on. Finally, the last item that was sitting in the bottom of my kawaii box is this great bunny drawstring bag. It's a good size and nice design, although the little fish on the design seems random and I would have liked if the material was softer. I'm likely going to use it to store crafty bits in.
Thankyou for reading!
