More Super Cute Pins by Stami Studios

Hi lovelies! I hope you've all had a spooktacular first week of October, aka 31 days of Halloween :) I know I have! I've been doing a movie marathon/'horrorthon' and watching a horror that I've never seen before. each night. I love horror so it's been a lot of fun so far! Are any of you guys having a spooky movie marathon this month? Let me know in the comments what your favourite Halloweentime movie is. 

Anyhow, on with today's post, which is not spookacular, but certainly cutetacular XD I need to stop, haha! It's a post for my fellow lovers of kawaii. And I hope you all enjoy it!

If you're a new reader of my blog, firstly thankyou so much for taking the time to visit my little corner of the internet, and secondly, you may not have heard of Stami Studios or their fabulous Super Cute Pin Club before, so let me fill you in :) Stami Studios is a store run by UK-based artist, Sam Rostami, selling the most adorable products, including clothing, jewellery and stationery. But my absolutely favourite things made by Stami Studios are their pin badges!! That is why I couldn't resist subscribing as soon as I discovered that they offered a monthly pin subscription, and today's post is going to be all about the pins I received from them in August and September. 

Signing up to get a surprise pin every month will only cost you £8 each time (and free shipping if you're in the UK, although they do offer worldwide shipping), which is an incredible price considering the pins are always gorgeous and so well-made! I've been very much looking forward to sharing the last two pins I was sent in my subscription with you guys. I was wondering, do you prefer when I talk about several pins at once just like in my previous Super Cute Pin Club post (check it out here, to see the variety of designs you can expect), or would you like me to blog about each new pin as it arrives? Any feedback on this would be very much appreciated :) Well, it's about time that I showed you the pins!

How sweet is this sleepy duck pin!!!? I love love love it!! Everything about the August pin is perfect in my opinion, and I was so delighted when I received it. There's just something so much cuter about sleeping animals, and this little ducky looks so snug nestled into the fluffy white cloud. I really like the tiny star and sparkle detailing, and yellow and blue is one of my absolute favourite colour combinations, as well. The bubble coming out of his nostril is such a wonderful addition to the design, too. There's nothing that I don't like about this pin and I am super happy that it is now part of my pin collection.

For those of you who are regular readers of my blog, you may have noticed that the packaging/presentation of the Super Cute Pin Club has changed, and not that I didn't love the old design featuring pastel polka dots and the cutest cats, but I am in love with this new design!! The individually packaged pins on the prettiest backing card look even more professional and fancy :) And they are much easier to store now in the tins where I keep all of my pin badges. The mixture of stars and plants on the card looks lovely, and the colours are so warm and vibrant. It's a 10/10 from me!

Here is the pin that arrived through my letterbox last month. The design for me just screams Summer so it was great timing to receive at the end of Summertime to give you one last dose of summer vibes before Autumn takes over! This little squirrel looks so pleased with himself that he's stumbled across a patch of strawberries and is happily feasting away on them :) He's even took a chunk out of the strawberry by his foot. How cute! 

I am a big fan of the strawberry aesthetic, if that even makes any sense... I adore things that are decorated with a strawberry print, and will buy anything strawberry-related that I happen to come across whilst shopping. I'm not sure why! Other than strawberries always remind me of my childhood, since we grew them in our garden and I loved searching for any ripe ones whenever I was playing outside. So I was over the moon to get a pin featuring strawberries and I love the shade of red used for them; it just makes me crave the real fruit whenever I look at the pin! :D I'm also lovin' how the seeds covering the strawberries have been done in the same gold as the outline, because it makes them super eye-catching! I very much like the gold outline of both these pins in general (I usually prefer silver outlines), because I think it's really pretty and goes nicely with each of the colour schemes.

See how much it shines when you angle the pin! I can't wait to wear them out and about, especially during sunny weather because they are going to sparkle beautifully when the sunshine catches that gold outline *all the heart-eyed emojis*. Aside from the strawberries, the next best detail of this pin for me is that glorious, curled tail! It reminds me so much of a dormouse... so I'm questioning whether this is in fact a dormouse and not a squirrel? What do you think? Nonetheless, the tails looks so floofy and makes my kawaii-loving heart happy :)

Awww!! They are so precious! Something that is lovely about these pins is that the animals both look really comfy, Mr Strawberry in his squishy bed of fruits and sleepy duck on his pillow in the sky :) Each and every one of the pin badges that I have been sent now (other than one) have been big, and that's something that I think is so awesome about this subscription. Large, colourful pins are my favourite because of how much they stand out. Plus, it is much easier to not forget that you're wearing a pin and accidently knock it off without realising until it's too late >.< I can't be the only one who's done that, right?

Another fantastic feature of Stami Studio's pins is the fact that they are doubled backed, so this is an added safeguard against them falling off your clothing, bags, etc. The backs are made me of smooth rubber and so there's no risk of being scratched like with the traditional metal pin backs. Who doesn't love a bit of pink too?

So, those are the stunning, fabulously kawaii pins that I was recently sent, and I am so excited to see if I get a Halloween themed pin for October, but we'll have to see! No matter what theme/design it is, I am sure that it will be adorable! I'm curious, which pin is your favourite of the two? Mine has to be little ducky slumber boi :) I feel I can personally relate to him at the moment... all I want to do is sleep! Although I wish I had a fluffy cloud pillow T_T. Thankyou Stami Studios for bringing so much cuteness into my life each month! And I hope you guys enjoyed me passing it forward and bringing cuteness into your lives as well, haha! 

Thankyou for reading!
