Kawaii Box Review & GIVEAWAY!

28 Aug

As a regular reader of my blog, people will know how much I love anything Japanese related. I’m a massive fan of Japan, especially kawaii things. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past two or three years, you’ll have heard of subscription boxes and how over the years they’ve just become more popular. You can get subscription boxes for anything these days, from beauty, fashion, game related things, and of course Japanese related items.

I’ll be talking about the latter today with the Kawaii Box*, a monthly subscription box that comes piled high with goodies from Japan and Korea. Each month you’ll receive 10-12 handpicked items, some being stationery, some being food. There’s a bit of everything in every box!

The awesome people over at Kawaii Box were lovely enough to send me a box to open up and review to you guys and I cannot explain how excited I have been for this to arrive so I could share what goodies I received inside of it. Also, as you can probably tell by the title, I was also given the chance to give one of these away to a lucky winner. Make sure to stay with me and read to the end of the post to find out how you can win!

This box arrived two weeks after they confirmed it was on its way to me and I’m really pleased about that. I’ve had it for about a week now, which has given me plenty of time to try out every item that I received, and in turn means I can give you guys a proper review of everything.

This months box came with 11 items, which is really good, and everything is different from the other too, so you don’t get anything the same as one another, which I liked.

This is what you get inside of the box;

  • Kracie DIY Chain Candy Set
  • Squishy Doughnut Mirror
  • Dessert Eraser
  • Kawaii Toast Coaster
  • Pastel Pearl Bracelet
  • Korean Glitter Glue Set
  • Rilakkuma Sticky Notes
  • Mushroom Mini Plush
  • Cute Korean Pencil Set
  • Flake Seal Stickers
  • Alpaca Keychain

I’ll be talking about each item with a little bit of detail just to give my readers a basic idea of what you get and such. Not every box comes with exactly the same items, so you get a unique box!

There are quite a few stationery bits in this box and they’re really nice too. You get a pack of pencils, a dessert rubber/eraser, a glitter glue set, some sticky notes, and flake seal stickers. These will be perfect for making notes for blog related work, as well as life in general. I’ll be taking these on holiday with me when I send postcards back to the UK, as well as when I do some blog work whilst out there. The stickers are really cute and whilst I was bored I stuck a couple on my boyfriends face for giggles.

The Rilakkuma sticky notes are amazing and one of my favourite things in this box. I’ll be using them to jot little blog post notes on, as well as using for bookmarks as well. There are so many that they’ll last me for months!

I never say no to Japanese candy, and I couldn’t wait to share this candy with my boyfriend. It’s chain candy which you link together and then well… Eat! It takes of ramune, Japanese lemonade and grape soda, two very popular flavours in Japan, and also two of my favourites. These tasted amazing and I was sad when they all ran out. :(

There are also some random little bits and pieces in here which were really kawaii! A squishy little doughnut mirror, which is covered in sprinkles and is super soft and squishy! The mirror isn’t the best in the world, but it does the job and it’s one I’m going to be taking on holiday with me for quick touch ups on the go. A cute little bead bracelet which is on the small side, so if you have big wrists it might be a little tight, as I’m a medium and it was just about okay for me. This being said, it’s still cute and a nice little piece for down days. I’ve seen various different mushroom plushie keyrings in peoples boxes, but I got the red one and it’s so adorable, reminds me of Mario. I don’t know what I’ll do with this, I may give it to a friend of mine very soon as a little surprise.

Finally we have two more of my favourite pieces out of the box, a toast shaped coaster and an alpaca keyring. I don’t yet have my own place but when I do I’ll be using this coaster in the living room, or office area as it’s just too cute NOT to use! It’s wooden and sounds really nice when placed down too. I know that sounds weird… But yeah. :P The alpaca keyring already has it’s pride and place on my backpack and is something I have had many comments on so far due to how adorable it is. I’ve been asked by many where it’s from!

Overall what do I think of the box? I LOVE IT! It’s a perfect monthly treat for anyone who loves all things kawaii and Japanese, and can’t access Japanese stores near them or online. It also makes for a nice surprise every month too and it’s all different.

So I’ll give you the prices of the box!

One Month Plan = $18.50 a month – free shipping worldwide – recurring one month plan – cancel anytime.

Three Month Plan = $18.50 a month – free shipping worldwide – ends after three months – perfect gift idea.

Little Cup Illustrations

23 Aug

Last week I tried for a competition held by Little Cup Illustrations and I was so happy when I found out I won! I never win things like this, and when I do I’m over the moon. Two days after winning I got home from my boyfriends to find my prizes waiting for me and I was so gobsmacked about how gorgeous my prizes were. I knew exactly what I was winning, but it’s always even better when they’re in the flesh, aren’t they?

I was awarded with three A4 sized pictures, a smaller postcard picture, two keyrings, and a brooch. I wasn’t asked to write about my winnings on my blog, but I felt the need to share with you guys what I won, as well as Little Cup Illustrations, and the artist and owner Gill, who has fast become a favourite illustrator of mine.

I discovered Little Cup Illustrations back around Valentines Day when I went into Tesco to buy my boyfriend a card, to discover what is probably the most adorable card I have ever seen in my life. It was of a couple, a dog and a cat, who were called Fred & Ginger. I took to Google to try and find out who this design belonged to and soon found Little Cup Illustrations. Since then I have been following Gill’s work and have fallen in love with all the new and upcoming designs she has come out with.

She was so damn generous with this giveaway though and I still can’t believe how beautiful the pieces are she sent to me. I’m definitely saving them for when I move out to place into rooms as a staple piece for a bare wall. They’re very delicate prints, which is what I love the most about her work.

So onto what I won!

  • Limited Edition Letterpress Print : Ampersand (Retails for £15.00)

This limited edition letterpress print has a print run of 100 with the main feature of the print being a large ampersand symbol with the background being made up of flowers and birds.

This is probably one of these nicest things I received in my prize due to it being limited edition, and for me to get number 3 out of 100 is pretty amazing! It’s a gorgeous ampersand print that is white/cream and a cotton blue shade. This would be gorgeous in a living room, or bedroom, hell maybe even a spare room. This is definitely a print I’m going to frame when I move out, I would be silly not to hang this on a wall somewhere.

  • Ballet Dancers Print (Retails for £12.00)

These beautiful ballet dancer prints show two dancers with glitter finishes on their skirts.

This is such a gorgeous print and one that I will keep with me a long time. I hope one day I’ll have a little girl and I can hang this in her bedroom from birth until she’s too old and “cool” with her band posters to have wall space for it anymore. Otherwise it would make a nice print to put in a bathroom or a spare room. The detail on the dancers is so perfect and beautiful.

  • Brush Pen & Watercolour Print – Brogues (Retails for £6.50)

This vintage inspired print shows a pair of brown brogues illustrated with brush pen and a watercolour finish.

I LOVE this print! I love brogues, and although I don’t really wear them anymore, they will always be a shoe that has a place in my heart (alongside Vans, Converse, and Dr Martens!) as they’re just a shoe I lived in whilst I was a uni student. This print will definitely go by my front door where all mine and my boyfriends shoes will be kept. It’s just very apt really and it’s such a gorgeous and bold picture that it’ll be sure to turn heads too.

  • Original Brush Pen Illustration – Baby Bear (Two similar retail for £15.00)

This baby bear illustration is an original piece of art in our latest brush pen series.

This is such a gorgeous little postcard image and one I have stuck up next to some of the pictures of me and my boyfriend as it’s too cute not to use yet. I can’t find this for sale on Gill’s Etsy, nor on the Facebook page… So I can  only assume this is a limited edition print or something. Once again, if I ever had a baby this would be perfect popped in a frame and hung on the wall.

  • Limited Edition Watercolour Print, Beetle Keyring (Print retails for £6.50)

This Beetle illustration was painted in watercolours and has been made into a limited edition print, with a print run of 50.

This print is gorgeous, yet grim at the same time… In a jokey way! I hate bugs, but this is rather vintage and quant. I’m going to pop this on my backpack as it’s just too nice not to use. On the front of the keyring you have the picture of the beetle, and then on the back you have various little pictures of the beetle as well. I like the variation of this! I couldn’t find these on her Etsy or Facebook page for sale, but I imagine they’re somewhere around. You can buy the print of this, which is limited edition and beautiful!

  • Butterfly/Floral Brooch (Can’t find for sale online)

This is a quaint little brooch and something I’ll possibly give to someone as a gift, as I don’t wear things like this myself and it would be an awful shame to let it go to waste and gather dust in my room. Either that or I’ll pop it on a bag as a cute little trinket of sorts. It’s a little butterfly shape, with a floral button in the middle. Very vintage looking, and something any girly girl would adore!

  • Puppy Collection – Dachshund (Print retails for £6.50)

As one of our puppy collection this dachshund print is a very cute illustration showing the puppy admiring a flying butterfly.

This is definitely my favourite thing in the whole package I received. Why? Because I love dogs! Especially dachshund’s! I’ve been eyeing up the puppy collection for a while and contemplated picking up some of the prints, but now I (somewhat) finally own one! The print is the same on both the front and back of the keyring, with a cute little puppy sniffing a butterfly. Cute, or what??? This is definitely going on my house keys!

So that was everything I won from the Little Cup Illustrations competition! What do you think of Gill’s artwork? I think it’s so simplistic, vintagesque, and beautiful.

Will you be checking out her work? If so I’ll link all her websites and such down below!

Until next time all, take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Lush Milky Bath Bubble Bar – Review

21 Aug

I know I said I would be doing this series once every two weeks, but I’ve just been itching to get something else written and up on my blog as soon as I wrote my Rub Rub Rub review. The second post in my series is a review I’ve been meaning to write since I bought said product from the London Oxford Street Store, that product being Milky Bath Bubble Bar.

This is an adorable little bubble bar, which is a creamy white shade, and has a glittery silver top to symbolise a bottle cap. The silver is also slightly glittery and shimmery, and is unlike the rest of the bubble bar as it has a bath melt style consistency. This cost me £3.75 which I found to be a decent price as I tend to get two or three baths out of one of these.

Before I smelt this bubble bar I imagined it would have a very Milky Bar style smell to it, like white chocolate but it’s nothing like that. It has a very gentle smell and it reminds me of something my mom would pop into the bath when I was little. It contains orange oil, cocoa butter (in the silver lid), and skimmed milk, which gives it that gentle scent. I was really expecting the skimmed milk and orange oil scent to come through but they really don’t, and they don’t settle on the skin either. I would say I was disappointed about this, but I actually really like the gentle scent myself. It’s a nice treat for mornings and evenings before bed.

If you have sensitive skin then this is a must have for you, and also for children too as it doesn’t smell strong, and is gentle on the skin.

When I put this under the hot tap I found it was really easy to crumble up, which I love in a Lush bubble bar. It left my bath filled with loads of soft bubbles which were spotted with little bits of shimmer, and the same can be said for the water too, which had little bits of shimmer in too.

When I got out of the bath I felt lovely and soft, and I could smell the gentle scent on my skin too, which I really liked. The silver lid I told you about is made out of cocoa butter, so when I put this half of the bubble bar into my bath my skin felt that little bit softer when I got out. This is a definite must have for me to use on days off work, and lazy weekends.

This of course was a Lush Oxford Street exclusive, but it has now come into stores all across the UK for summer, and I hope that it’ll be sticking around for a long time, as this has soon become one of my favourite bath products.

As far as I know there aren’t any Lush products that share the same scent as this, and if there are I want to know what they are!

Have you tried Milky Bath Bubble Bar yet? If so let me know what you think of it in the comments!

Life Lately…

17 Aug

Image taken from weheartit.com

Today I fancied writing something a little different. I had a long weekend this one just gone, and I have to be honest and say I haven’t had such an awesome weekend in quite some time. I got to spend a little bit more time with my boyfriend, I got to see my friend Gabriella before her birthday and give her her presents, I also got to eat yummy Japanese food, go to an amazing party, and nurse a poorly stomach with Dominos in the evening. As well as have lazy days in bed with my boyfriend, playing games, and watching South Park.

Weekends like that are the ones I wish could last forever, even if I got bored eventually. It’s just been awesome spending time with my boyfriend, as well as hanging out with our friends.

The house party we went to on Saturday was amazing, and it’s been about two or three years since I took my tired, danced out arse home when it’s light outside again, and the birds are singing. It was also the first time I played beer pong, which was rather fun. AND I got to be the DJ for a couple of hours, which I really enjoyed too.

My weekend also appeared to be full of animals, dogs to be exact. Me and my boyfriend saw Gabriella’s dog Penny, and then we saw his brother’s and his girlfriends dog Dino on Friday, and then on Saturday we saw our friends dogs Bailey and Lily on Saturday at the party. We love dogs and seeing these guys (well mostly girls) two days in a row was awesome!

I’m really on a South Park kick at the moment, and I honestly don’t know why I didn’t start watching the show from the start sooner. I’m currently on season 6 and it’s just getting funnier, and darker the more I watch it. My favourite character has always been Kenny, but he’s kind of missing in action at the moment, which sucks! But that being said, each season I am falling in love with Cartman more. He’s just such a dark child, and it’s hilarious some of the stuff he comes out with too! “You’re breaking my balls here, sir.” :P

Due to diets and such ruling my life, I have been good and haven’t been eating any crap… Number one on this list being pizza. However due to feeling poorly, tired, and crappy on Sunday after a long night of partying, me and my boyfriend decided to be bad and order pizza, and let me tell you it was fucking amazing. Excuse my French, but it was just what we needed. We instantly felt better and since then I have craved more. I had a cheese and tomato (because I’m boring!) but I added sweetcorn, and bacon. It was lovely and just the thought of it is making me drool. Lovely image for all my readers.

Of course I have been meaning to update you guys on how my pole fitness has been going, but I’ve been waiting for the right time to to be honest. Well it’s been going really well, infact better than when I was doing it two/three years ago! I’ve accomplished moves I never thought I could do when I did it previously. One move in particular being the butterfly, which the girl is doing on the image above. It’s a tough move to do, but alas I have now began to do it, which I’m so proud of! I want to try and get some images of me pole dancing soon… But I don’t wish to ask one of the girls in my class, as that’s just incredibly awkward!

I want to finish my post for today by thanking an absolute gem of a person, who is Amy. Someone I met through my boyfriend a couple of times, and someone who also made my night at the party on Saturday when she told me how much she loved my blog, and listed all the reasons why. It really made me feel awesome and a teeny bit famous… That’s sad, but I don’t care! After nattering about my blog for a while she then handed me a cider and black, what a girl! So hello Amy, here’s a shout out for you! :D

This is a different post to usual, but I really wanted to just have a natter to all my readers about what is happening with me lately, well all of this weekend anyway. I had an amazing weekend, and I hope this weekend is just as good, as well as the following week when I go away to the Lake District with some friends for the bank holiday Monday. I wonder if I’ll be the DJ again?

I hope you all had an awesome weekend too, and until next time, take care all.

Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub – Review

14 Aug

This is a series I have wanted to do for ages, and finally I am starting it! I’m inspired by my friend Mali over at maliberrymakeup who reviews various products from Lush, and has done for as long as I can remember. I’ve started to get more into Lush again since the start of the year, and I’m so pleased. I’ve loved Lush since 2008 and my long love of it’s products are still going strong.

My new series is being kicked off by a product I have wanted for a long time, and one that is probably now one of my favourites from Lush to date. That being Lush’s Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub.

I picked this scrub up a couple of weeks ago and since then I’ve used it quite a few times, in various different ways. When I bought this at the time it only came in one size, 330g for £8.75, but since the summer collection and a lot of the Oxford Street exclusives coming into stores all over the UK, so have the tub sizes. You can now get this baby in a huge 500g pot for £14.95 online, but I’m unsure if you can in store. Something I can see me picking up in the future!

The first thing I noticed about this product when I first looked at it, was how gorgeous it looked. I don’t know why but I’m always attracted to blue beauty products, probably because it’s such a strange colour. It’s a bright blue product and reminds me of a blue raspberry Slush Puppie. This is also said to share its scent with Sakura Bath Bomb, a Lush product I really want to try. This doesn’t have a thick consistency, which I really like as I feel it goes a little farther than a thicker product.

Lush say you can use this on either dry skin for a more harsher scrub, or wet skin for a more gentle scrub. I’ve tried both and the dry skin one does work that little better, but due to how sensitive my skin can be at times, I’ve found that I’m using it more on wet skin. Either way it works beautifully and to the same affect.

Rubbing in circular motions I apply this generously all over the body and then rinse off in the shower. I also use this in the bath but I don’t feel it works as well as it does in the shower. I find that after you rinse this off it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth, and like a babies bum! It has a sort of moisturising component inside which leaves a moistursing layer on the skin.

I find this is perfect for use on the tops of my arms, my thighs, my bum (TMI?), and my back. My boyfriend really likes the smell of this shower scrub and although he hasn’t used it himself, I can only imagine sometime soon he’ll ask if he can. It smells so fresh and yummy, it reminds me of a floral, yet sweet and uplifting scent. Perfect if you want a good scrub for in the mornings.

This is a product I’ll only have as a once a week treat, even though I have used it a little on other parts of the body as and when I need it. This works great on tired and achey feet too, which has been nice to use on mine after pole dancing classes.

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like Rub Rub Rub, infact it’s probably one of Lush’s best products that they sell! It’s so good it was turned into a body scrub bar, Rub Rub Rub Body Scrub, one of Oxford Street exclusives, as well as one of the new summer products. I would like to try this just for a change, but I can’t see it beating the pot version.

I don’t think I have anything else to say about this product, it’s a staple if you ask me and one I will want to take away with me on holiday at the end of the year.

So, that was the first of my Lush review series. I’m so glad to finally have it started and I can’t wait to add more reviews to it. I think it’ll be a once every two weeks series as I don’t want to talk about Lush TOO much on my blog.

What do you think of Rub Rub Rub, do you love it, or hate it? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time all, take care and have a great weekend!

Cereal Killer Cafe

11 Aug

On mine and my boyfriends last day in London, we decided a month previous to going that we would be visiting the Cereal Killer Cafe in Shoreditch for breakfast. I had looked online for cool places to visit in London to have breakfast, and this was at the top of the list and one that we knew we needed to go to.

I don’t eat cereal much, as it makes me feel sick after eating it after a while but this was one occasion where I wouldn’t let that stop me. It was a little out the way from where we traveled from but it was so worth it when we got there.

The place is only tiny and we nearly missed seeing it due to how busy the market area was outside of the cafe itself. Luckily we managed to get in and it was quiet enough so that we could get first in line to order our breakfast.

The first thing you notice when you go into the cafe is that three of the walls are just lined with boxes of cereal, both current ones and ones from the past. One of these included Pokemon cereal, which I never got to try as a kid, but I wanted to! One wall of them aren’t edible and are just for show, whilst the main wall and one beside it are what the staff use for orders. You have the wall with British cereals on, and the massive wall with American, as well as Asian and other global cereals on.

One cereal I asked for was the Oreo cereal, which they admitted they stopped selling, as the makers of it stopped making it, which sucks! Not only could you  pick what cereal  you wanted, but you could pick toppings for your cereal too, and whatever milk you wanted. If you wanted to be a little different you could choose from their cocktail menu, which is what my boyfriend did.

I decided to go for Reece’s Puffs cereal, with Oreo toppings, and chocolate soya milk. I recently discovered that the combo that I had was all vegan, which is pretty cool! My boyfriend went for the S’more Than Words cocktail cereal which has golden graham  cereal, marshmallow toppings, and chocolate milk.

I have to say how amazing my cereal was! I know you can pick this up in places that specially sell American cereal, but it’s really expensive for what it is, and high calorie too. I would definitely get this again though, and maybe in the future buy me and my boyfriend a box to share.

Whilst mine was really yummy, my boyfriends cocktail cereal was amazing and I immediately regretted not getting the same as he did! I would love to try and make this myself in the future as a Sunday treat for us both, but that would involve trying to find the graham cracker cereal to use for this.

Me and my boyfriend have this weird thing where we’ll go into a shop or a restaurant and it’ll be dead, but after we go in it’ll be rammed! This happened with the Cereal Killer Cafe and not long after stepping in and getting into the queue, the place was rammed and we worried we wouldn’t get anywhere to it and eat.

However there is a larger downstairs seating area where we ended up going to sit, and I’m glad we did really as it was lovely down there. It reminded me of something you would see on a 90’s TV show and it was very nostalgic with more old cereal boxes from my childhood, as well as some toys from cereal boxes too.

The decor of the place was also pretty awesome and it made me wish I could get something like that for my own home in the future.

My favourite piece in the cafe has to be the huge picture of Dexter Morgan from the show Dexter which is made out of cereal, pretty cool huh? There was also one of Hannibal too, also very cool!

The staff were so lovely there though and you could have a good chat to them about cereal and what the cereal section of supermarkets look like in America.

Looking back at our trip there I’m so pleased we went, and I’m sad we didn’t go more than once to be honest. I just wish that Birmingham had a Cereal Killer Cafe, as I feel it would do really well. I’m unsure of what I would have if I could change what I ordered, probably the same as my boyfriend, but with soya chocolate milk instead of normal chocolate milk.

Other than that I don’t know what else I would have tried, as I said I’m not a huge fan of cereal. Either way I loved Cereal Killer Cafe and it was a definite highlight of our trip to London.

I’m going to leave the links here for all of Cereal Killer Cafe’s handles, I recommend you check them out if you’re taking a trip to London soon, and especially if you live there!

My New iPhone 6!

9 Aug

This is something I have been super excited for since it was announced, and a couple of months ago I realised I would be able to upgrade in August and be able to get this beauty.

Finally after what felt like the longest two months ever, they flashed by and now I am the proud owner of an iPhone 6, and isn’t it gorgeous?

I’ve had it three days now and it’s so surreal… I know that sounds odd as it’s just a phone but I don’t know. After all the issues I had with my iPhone 5, I guess I’m just so pleased to have a brand new phone that’s actually mine. To give you a quick run down to what happened with my iPhone 5.

My original one was having issues a year after I got it, and before my holiday in January I took it to the Apple store to see what the issue could be. It had been built faulty and I was told it would cost me £200 to fix it… £200 I didn’t have! So I dealt with the issues during my holiday and when I came back I rang Orange (now EE) and told them the problems. Due to being a loyal and old customers they offered to give me a refurbished phone for free. Which they did, but that phone they sent me had way worse problems than the phone I had originally. I reported it and they once again sent me another refurbished phone, which I still have. It did appear to have a few issues, but they went away not long before I got my iPhone 6.

So now I have my new phone and it took me the good part of four hours to sort it out, let me tell you why, and also give you some tips on how to snag a great deal! I didn’t wish to go through Carphone Warehouse, even though a few of my friends had told me to do so due to their cheaper deals, etc. I’ve been through Carphone Warehouse in the past and when I had issues with an old phone they turned me away and said, “We can’t help you need to contact the manufacturer.” Which was a pain to be told but alas, I contacted them and they dealt with my issue. Another thing I don’t like with Carphone Warehouse is how they try and push deals onto you, that’s wrong. They would push me to insure with them, even though I had said many times no, and just to shut them up I would say yes to a monthly trial, only to cancel it a mere day later. Orange and EE don’t do this, if you say no, they accept that answer.

Anyway, I rambled. I found an amazing deal through Carphone Warehouse back in June and had print screened it incase the deal went away, which it did. When I spoke to them about this deal they said, “Okay we’ll do this deal for the day.” So as I said before, I didn’t wish to go through them, so I contacted EE and told them the offer Carphone Warehouse had proposed to me, and asked if they could match it. Not only did EE match it, but they offered me £10 less for the phone than Carphone Warehouse did! I was sold and took up their offer straight away.

So, if you’re upgrading with your phone provider make sure to do some hunting around, and especially print screen deals if you see good ones as they don’t stick around forever. I wasn’t rude to the people who I spoke to at EE, and they didn’t leave me feeling like I needed to. I simply told them the deal I had been proposed, and how I wanted to stick with them due to how amazing they had been with all my iPhone 5 problems the past year. Which is true! They have been amazing and I’m so pleased about how they’ve dealt with it all.

Another reason I’m glad that I didn’t go through Carphone Warehouse is due to the hacking issues they announced yesterday. I know this isn’t their fault, but I’m just so relieved!

Now all that further rambling is over, I can talk a little about the phone itself.

It is of course bigger than the iPhone 5, which I worried about at first, but it’s actually better. My hand doesn’t have to curve around so much to fit it into my palm, and the screen being bigger I don’t need to hold it super close to my face when I don’t wear my glasses. The smooth shape of it makes it feel nicer to hold as well. I especially love the fact you could get this in gold, which is the colour I went for. It just looks so clean and beautiful. Of course you get the fingerprint reader on the home button, which I am still getting used to. It does make things easier at times. The one thing I am especially getting used to with this is the on/off button being on the right hand side of the phone instead of on the top. But this being said, I really do prefer it there.

The one thing I am happy about with having the iPhone 6, and I know this somewhat sad but it’s true. The best thing is that I can finally use my Eeveelutions case from the Pokemon Center store in Japan! I bought this back in May and have waited patiently to finally snap it onto my phone, and let me tell you, it looks so cute and feels really nice to hold.

Another case I picked up for my phone is a cheap flip case which I’ll use for work. It’s got The Fault in Our Stars designs on it and it just looks super cute.

Overall I’m just really happy with it already and I can’t wait to get to use it more over the next two years.

Do you have an iPhone 6? If so, what do you love about it most? If you don’t have an iPhone would you like one, or maybe you don’t want one? As usual, let me know your comments down below.

Until next time take care all and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
