YumeTwins Monthly Kawaii Box Review

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!).

Blind Box & Bag 40. (Disney Princess Series 7 Figural Keyrings)

December 13, 2016

Disney Princess Series 7 Figural Keyrings
Happy Tuesday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup! I can’t believe that this is my 40th BB&BR post??! I would have never guessed back in August 2013 when I opened my first ever blind box that I would STILL enjoy collecting and opening blind boxes and bags almost three years later! It’s crazy to think how popular blind boxes and blind bags have became because I remember having to search high and low to find some and how I can’t go into a store without seeing a whole aisle/section dedicated to them (and I can understand why, they’re so cute and who doesn’t love fun surprises?). As some of you may know, I LOVE Figural Keyrings so when I saw these Disney Princess Series 7 Figural Keyrings at Hot Topic last week I knew I had to grab a couple of them. Although I usually keep my Figural Keyrings displayed on a cork board in my room, lately I’ve been starting to hang a few of them from my Disney bag (the backpack I use when I’m visiting the Disney Parks)! Since I’m heading to Disneyland Paris in two weeks (for Christmas/New Year), I definitely wanted to hang a few of the Disney Princess Series 7 Figural Keyrings on my backpack! Continue reading


Celebrating the Howlidays at Kriser’s Natural Pet

Kriser’s Natural Pet
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and since it’s FINALLY December, that means the holiday shopping can officially commence! Can I tell you guys a secret? I’m actually done with ALL my holidays shopping (hooray for planning ahead!). Thanks to Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday (and a little extra shopping prior to that), I was able to get everything I wanted for my friends and family this holiday season. In fact, the only other person (well, I guess he’s not a “person” but you know what I mean) I still needed to go holiday shopping for was my little furbaby, Loki! Since Loki can’t write a letter to Santa, and I wanted to make sure he’d actually really love his gifts, I decided to surprise him with a trip to Kriser’s Natural Pet so he could pick out a few holiday treats for himself!

Must Have: December 2016

December 6, 2016

December Must Haves
Happy Tuesday! It’s December, which means new month, new Must Have list! Can you believe that this time next month it’ll be 2017 (and that in 19 days it will be Christmas)?! I still can’t wrap my head around how fast this year went by! Like with all of my Monthly Must Have lists, this is simply a list of things I myself would want, I understand not everyone will find these items useful or “lush worthy.” Also, this is NOT my Christmas list OR a gift guide, it’s simply a few of the things I’ve had my eye on for the past few weeks. Here are my must have’s for December:

Simple Ways to Incorporate Earth-friendly Practices Into Your Life
Small actions can create BIG changes — especially when it comes to helping the environment! A few years ago, Illinois made an effort to go green by providing all residential homes with recycling bins. It’s not only made recycling easier but it’s also made it super fun! We keep little bins throughout our house for all our recyclables and try to see who can fill their bin the fastest (who doesn’t love a little healthy competition?!) If I’ve learned anything these past few years it that’s being green can be easy as 1, 2, 3! Here are seven simple ways to incorporate more Earth-friendly practices into your everyday life (spoiler alert: you can do most of them from the comfort of home!): Continue reading
