TokyoTreat Monthly Japanese Candy & Snacks Box Review

December 21, 2016

TokyoTreat
Happy Wednesday! Can you believe that Christmas is only FOUR days away? Since I’m spending the holidays in Paris (I leave TOMORROW), my family spent last weekend opening up all of our Christmas presents (shoutout to Santa for delivering all the gifts a week early to accommodate our travel plans!). If it wasn’t obvious from all my blind box and bag openings, I LOVE a good surprise! It’s always so much fun opening up something and not knowing exactly what you’ll get (speaking of opening things/gifts, I’m so grateful for all the wonderful gifts I got for Christmas this year!). That’s why I love subscription boxes, it’s like Christmas every month (and who doesn’t love Christmas?)! If you know me, or if you checked out my YumeTwins review last week, then you already know that I’m OBSESSED with Japanese culture and all things kawaii (seriously, it’s the BEST)! That’s why I was super excited when YumeTwins contacted me and asked if I wanted to review not only one of their YumeTwins boxes (you can check out that review HERE) but one of their TokyoTreat boxes as well!

YumeTwins Monthly Kawaii Box Review

December 14, 2016

YumeTwins Monthly Kawaii Box
Fun fact: I am OBSESSED with Japanese culture and all things kawaii! Seriously, whenever I visit Epcot at Walt Disney World, I always rush over to the Japan Pavilion in the World Showcase so I can visit my favorite gift shop of all-time, the Mitsukoshi Department Store! Speaking of Japan and the Disney Parks, I’m super EXCITED because I’ve decided to spend next Christmas at Tokyo Disneyland (I know this Christmas hasn’t even passed yet but I like to think/plan ahead!). Since I’m breaking my normal tradition of spending Christmas (and New Years) at Disney World and am spending it at Disneyland Paris this year (I leave in EIGHT days), I’ve decided that I want to start spending every Christmas at an international Disney park from now on. I literally JUST decided on this last weekend so I still have a lot of planning/research to do but I’m still super excited! It’s so funny because the SAME day I told my mom about my plans for next Christmas, my YumeTwins Monthly Kawaii Box arrived (I don’t know about you but I don’t think that was a mere coincidence, I think it was a SIGN!).

Disneyland Memorabilia Park Pack  copy 2

Disneyland Memorabilia Park Pack

Disneyland Memorabilia Park Pack
Back in May, Disney released a one-time-only, mystery-boxed collector’s memorabilia Park Pack that was aimed to “take you back to the opening day of Disneyland park on July 17, 1955.” The set (which was priced at $99) had a limited edition size of 1,200 and the contents of the mystery-boxed package was hinted to include “a mix of items ranging from sculptured replicas and medallions to paper collectibles.” Being the HUGE Disney (if you couldn’t tell from my MONTHLY Disney Parks trips or from the fact that 80% of the last 10 posts on this blog have been Disney themed) and blind box/mystery lover that I am, I knew I couldn’t pass this box up! Vintage-themed Disneyland merch? YES PLEASE! I’m so glad that Disney is expanding the Park Pack beyond just pins (you may remember my Disney Park Pack pin reviews from last summer!). Supposedly, Disney is releasing another non-pin Disney Park Pack in July that is Disney ear hat ornament themed (I can’t wait, I LOVE Disney ornaments/Disney themed Christmas stuff!).

August 2015 Disney Park Pack + Disney World TOMORROW

August 22, 2015

August Disney Park Pack
Happy Saturday! I know I don’t usually post on weekends but since I’m heading to Disney World TOMORROW (I’m so excited), I wanted to get this post up before my trip. Although I’m still really into the idea of the Disney Park Pack’s, I’ve noticed quite a few people have been disappointed with them. In fact, while May, June and July’s Park Pack’s were snatched up within minutes of their release, this month’s took over five days to sell out. I do understand that they’re a little pricey and the pins released up until this point might not have been everyone’s cup of tea (I’ve liked them all so far) but for now, I still think they’re worth it (fingers crossed for a Beauty and the Beast Park Pack LE pin in the near future!)

July 2015 Disney Park Pack + Newest Disney Pins

July 16, 2015

Disney Park Pack
I LOVE snail mail (seriously, I’d prefer a hand written letter over a text or email ANYDAY!) I think it’s my love of getting packages that always drew me to subscription boxes. Although I’ve tried almost every kind of monthly subscription box under the sun (geek/gamer, beauty, jewelry, even food) I just haven’t found the right one for me (Loot Crate and ipsy are both tied as my longest subscriptions lasting six months each.) Even with the cheaper/$10 monthly boxes, overtime, I found them to be a waste. I was seriously starting to think that maybe subscription boxes weren’t for me until I discovered the holy grail of monthly boxes: Park Pack from Disney Parks! Anyone who knows me (or anyone who spends 30 seconds on my blog or Instagram) knows that I’m a Disney fanatic! Now I know everyone (or most people) “loves Disney” but for me it’s deeper than that! Disney is MY LIFE (seriously, I have a Disneyland and Disney World trip planned every other month until March 2016!) So when I heard that Disney was making their own subscription box (related to pins nonetheless) I was more than thrilled!  Continue reading
