YY Kawaii Collective Haul

I cannot tell you how many months I’ve been trying to write this blog post now! It must have been 3 months at least. It’s just taken so long as I’ve either had to wait for stuff to come out and be sent to me, or I’ve ended up pre-ordering more things and decided to wait for them to arrive so I could do a huge collective haul. Finally all my stuff has arrived now so I can do this post, yays!

I love YY Kawaii and have done for as long as I can remember. She stocks so much awesome stuff from Japan, including two of my favourite things, Pokemon and Persona 5, as well as many other things.

I’ve mentioned YY Kawaii in the past on my blog (which you can read here) and I won’t be stopping talking about them anytime soon.

I hope you enjoy this little collective haul anyway. I’ll pop loads of links to YY Kawaii’s website as well as social media pages at the end of this post.

Just a heads up, I’ll be talking about the stuff I bought in the order I bought it.

  • How To Keep A Mummy Mii-Kun Plush

This is something I had pre-ordered before from YY Kawaii but sadly when she went to pick up the plushies they had ALL sold out so I was given a refund. So as soon as the chance to pre-order came up again I KNEW I had to get in there quickly! Then July came and so did Mii-Kun. I was so excited to receive this plushie and when I did I fell so in love! It now sits by my bed and has so far appeared on one of my blog posts (which you can read here) as he just looked so cute with my pin flag! He wasn’t cheap considering his size but he was oh so worth it! He’s just the perfect size, especially if you would cosplay with him! I don’t think these are available anymore, but I’ve since seen Mii-Kun’s for sale online.

  • Persona 5 Joker Plushie Keychain

When this Joker plushie first went up for sale and pre order I was going to order, but a part of me was put off due to the size. I wanted a bigger Joker plush really. Then I saw people posting theirs on Instagram and I was a bit bummed, but it’s when YY Kawaii did a live video on her Instagram page showing the Persona 5 plushie keychains off that I really regretted not getting one. So I asked YY Kawaii if she could get anymore and she said she still could, so I put in my pre-order and waited for him to arrive. Joker and Mii-Kun actually arrived together, which was amazing! Joker for a while lived by my bed but now he’s on mine and Dane’s manga shelf in our living room. I wouldn’t want to keep him on a bag or anything as I’d be scared he would fall off! I wish I had bought Ryuji and Anna too now. It’s something I’ll definitely keep my eye on in sales etc in future!

  • Persona 5 Morgana Sega Cafe Exclusive Strap/Keychain

I legit ordered this just after my Joker plushie keychain arrived. It was funny because literally not long before YY Kawaii popped these up for sale I had looked at them on eBay in Japan and seen how expensive they were! I’m so glad I ordered it though, even though I’d done sod all with it! I was going to pop it on my car keys or even my Loungefly Star Wars backpack (which you can read about here) but the back of the design isn’t covered, so for how much I paid I worried the back would be scratched off and ruined. It’s happened with straps and keychains in the past and I’ve been gutted. I didn’t want that to happen again! So for now Morgana has been living on my Joker plushie keychain! I’m tempted to turn it into a necklace, but meh I don’t know. We’ll see!

  • 2018 Pokemon Collection Kuji Prize Eevee Bowl

When I kept seeing the 2018 Pokemon Collection kuji online on both YouTube and Instagram, I KNEW I had to have one of the bowls from the kuji! I asked YY Kawaii if she was able to get hold of any prizes separately and luckily she was able to get some of the bowls. I asked for the Eevee one and I was so excited for it to arrive! It’s not the biggest bowl in the world admittedly but either way it’s so cute! I’ve been using it for little snacks such as crisps, pretzels, M&M’s etc. I do really love it but I’m glad I only got one. πŸ˜›

  • 2018 Pokemon Collection Kuji Prize Vaporeon Strap/Keychain

Again like the bowl, I was so excited for this collection and honestly I wanted everything from it. I most of all wanted the Flareon strap/keychain but sadly YY Kawaii wasn’t able to get a hold of it due to how popular it was. Instead I opted for Vaporeon instead! Granted I didn’t need a new strap/keychain but this cute little Vaporeon was hard to say no to and it now lives on my car keys! I love the little jangling noise it makes against my keys. It’s actually quite relaxing.

  • Persona 5 Sega Prize Morgana Cushion

This is the last item on this list and is one that arrived yesterday, but I missed the parcel and had to go and pick it up this morning before work. I knew as soon as it was put up for pre-order that I had to have it. I’ve become a huge Persona 5 fan this past year and now that Morgana is coming out as plushies and such, I really need all the Morgana merch! This pillow is way bigger than I thought it was going to be and I am pleasantly surprised! I opened the parcel this morning before I headed into work and it is huge! You’ll see from the images just how big it is. Not only is it large in size but it is so squishy and soft, I’ve sat here cuddling it whilst writing this post. I cannot wait to use this as a cushion to rest my head on both upstairs in bed as well as on my cuddle chair in the living room. It’s just perfect and it’s definitely one of my favourite things on this haul alongside Mii-Kun.

So there are all the goodies I picked up from YY Kawaii these past couple of months! I wish I could have more on this list but I am trying to be good with money. πŸ˜› I do have some bits and pieces on a wish list in the back of my mind… πŸ˜› Hopefully they’ll become a reality in the future.

As I said at the start of this post, I’ll pop all of the links for YY Kawaii down below.

Until next time, take care all and I hope your week is going well.

August Wish List ’18

Well this post is a day later than it usually is! I can’t actually remember the last time a wish list post was late, considering they’re one of the easiest to do! All you do is talk about shit you want to buy. πŸ˜› I did struggle with that a little this month though. I’ve been quite naughty with money of late, but at the same time I’m just having treats I’ve earnt each month really

This month was especially hard though because there isn’t much I want to buy really. Anything I had thought of adding to this list I’d bought before I went to edit the pictures. Mainly stuff for work, which I’ll be posting about later on this month in an August collective haul.

But for now I’ll talk about stuff I’m lusting after and whether I buy them or not, is another thing. πŸ˜›

  • Ohayou! Clothing Persona 5 Futaba Keychain/Charm – (link)

I have spoken time and time again on my blog about Ohayou! Clothing and her amazing designs and pieces that she sells. You can read about some of her pins I own here. When she posted on social media that she had designed Futaba from Persona 5, I was over the moon! As soon as she released the keychain/charm I had to pre order! I cannot wait to see what else she comes out with, especially from the Persona 5 series.

  • Daisy Street Oversized Rainbow Stripe Cardigan – (link)

I don’t even know how I discovered this cardigan, but I did and I’m not going to lie, halfway through writing this post I bought it. πŸ˜› I know I have my Honey Punch rainbow cardigan (which you can see here) but I wanted another one, which is shorter and easier to wear at work and out and about. Plus I’m always wearing that rainbow one, I don’t want to wear it out! I could never have too many rainbow cardigans to be honest with you. πŸ˜›

  • Nendoroid Persona 5 Joker

When this Nendoroid was announced a couple of months ago I was super excited, BUT when it was shown off in colour I AM EVEN MORE EXCITED NOW! This isn’t out for pre order yet and I don’t know if it will this month. I just know I want it and as soon as the Nendoroid store I use release it for pre order, I’ll be doing just that. I have Futaba pre-ordered and I’m so excited for her. I cannot wait for my little Persona 5 family!

  • Pinata Planter – (link)

This is a planter I’ve had my eye on for a while, since May to be honest. I have an aztec llama planter in my bedroom, which I don’t have a plant in to be honest… But that’s because I don’t know WHAT plant to put into it! BUT this pinata planter is so adorable and I’d definitely keep something in it. I’d buy a little aloe plant to pop in as me and Dane really want one. This is something I’d pop on a Christmas or birthday present ideas list.

  • Himouto! Umaru-chan Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 – (link) and (link)

I love my manga and this is one I have wanted to read for YEARS now, but it only came out in the UK late June this year. It’s been out in Japan for years now, ever since the anime started of the same name. I’m naughty and have already ordered both of the volumes and the sooner 3, 4 and 5 grow close to coming out in the UK I’ll be ordering those too. I cannot wait to start reading this manga, I’m so excited.

  • Daisy Street Relaxed Chunky Knit Stripe Cardigan – (link)

This is currently in the sale at ASOS and is either out of stock/sold out or in the odd size that someone is obviously returned. I was close to ordering this but missed out on a size I could have bought. It’s super cheap and is exactly the same as the bright rainbow one in this list, but this one is pastel colours. Estelle over atΒ estellosaurus has this cardigan and has posted it on her Instagram in the past. It’s gorgeous to be honest and is definitely a cardigan I’d like to add to my wardrobe for both in and out of work.

So that’s my wish list for this month! A day late, sadly… But I’m sure you guys won’t mind me being behind for one day. πŸ˜›

This weekend I have decided to do nothing but chill out with Dane, even though we’ve just been so busy doing this and that to really have time to chill out.

What have you guys been doing with your weekends and what do you have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all!

July Wish List ’17

Wow we’re not on month seven of the year! Officially over half way through now. Two months left until my holiday and hopefully more hot weather will be upon us too. It’s been gorgeous lately and I don’t want it to end… Well apart from at night when I want to sleep.

Speaking of my holiday I recently wrote a holiday wish list and I hate writing wish lists close together, but this one will be different… It’ll have a bit of everything on it. This being said I am on a spending ban for the holiday. I need to save up monies for it, otherwise I’ll have next to sod all to take with me!

This wish list was actually really hard to put together to be honest as whilst I often say, “OMG I WANT THIS! OMG I WANT THAT!” more often than not it’s not something I want that badly.

I have tried really hard with this list though and I hope you appreciate it. πŸ˜‰

EDIT: I ended up searching Etsy and Redbubble for some ideas based on Persona 5, so yeah there’s lots of that stuff here! πŸ˜› FUCK YOU REDBUBBLE! πŸ˜›

  • Kat Von D Beauty ‘Rock Candy Studded Kiss’ Lipstick Gift Set – Β£34.00 (link)

I have been eyeing up this lipstick gift set since it was released in April in America. It’s only recently come out in the UK, exclusively at Debenhams of course. They’re little miniature sizes of the studded kiss lipstick AND they’re limited edition colours. COME ON KAT MAKE THESE PERMANENT SHADES! You get six shades in here and all of them are my types of lip colours! From purples to pinks, there’s a shade in here for every occasion for me. I nearly ordered this last week but left it due to lack of funds. I am so damn tempted to order it though considering it’s limited edition. I think it’s a great price as well, even for miniatures. I’m already planning on at least getting them to take on holiday with me, as these are all the shades I would need, AND THEY’RE SMALL!

  • JennifairyW Cute Chubby Pokemon Espeon Charm – Β£4.00 (link)

I’m a massive fan of JennifairyW’s work as it’s just kawaii and cute! I’ve had my eye on all her Eeveelution charms for a while now but if I had to pick one it would be Espeon. I’d keep it on my car keys, maybe even eventually buy all of them to keep on my Pokemon handbag I recently bought (you can check that out here!). Either way check out her Etsy page, because her artwork is so damn adorable!

  • Persona 5 Joker Hardcover Journal by ClearClarity on Redbubble – Β£12.00 (link)

I am in love with Persona 5, like so damn much right now and it’s kinda creepy. I mean it’s not a bad thing to love something, but I haven’t fallen in love with something so much since Pokemon. So much so I went in search on Redbubble for some goodies I could get myself in the future. I stumbled across the artist/seller ClearClarity and their Persona 5 character artwork is beautiful and definitely the best I have seen to date. I want to buy EVERYTHING and display it in the house! My favourite character is Joker, who you play in the game. I have a little crush on him too! :’) BUT I wouldn’t mind getting a journal for Fuerteventura, or at least another one to go with my Cath Kidson 101 Dalmatians journal. I’ll definitely be getting this at some point before the holiday.

  • The Body Shop Precision Eye Massager – Β£8.00 (link)

I have the twin-ball facial massager by The Body Shop and it’s amazing! Although I bought it a year ago I’ve only recently been using it more than ever. I’ve been using it on my eyes too after using my eye gel to cool my eyes down and de-puff them. NOW The Body Shop has created a tool similar to this but specifically for the eyes, which is great! I want to get it when I get paid as I love using things like this on my eyes, especially with a cooling eye gel. I know Dane likes this too so he can’t complain about me spending my money on it. πŸ˜›

  • Persona 5 Morgana A-Line Dress by Kaluma on Redbubble – Β£45.00 (link)

This is pretty expensive for what it is and whilst I wouldn’t even pay this price for a Black Milk Clothing dress, I do love how unique this dress is and the design. AGAIN it’s Persona 5 related but this time it’s Morgana, the cat sidekick to Joker and the rest of The Phantom Thieves. I love how there’s a little Joker on Morgana’s head, so cute! I doubt I would buy this to be honest due to how expensive it is, but if I had some spare cash and I fancied treating myself, this would be in the cart! This would especially be nice to wear on hot days and holidays with some sandals.

  • Plushishop Pinky & Blue Mew Pokemon Notepads – Β£8.13 (link)

I love notebooks, pads and journals so much and I have a small collection of them in the office. Most of them I save for “special” but most I also use to write random notes in for my blog and lists of things me and Dane need to do or buy. I would love one of these notepads to leave in my handbag to jot notes down, especially when I get blog ideas and want to write them down! Out of the four I found the Mew themed one to be the cutest, especially considering the designer also included the blue Mew, how cute! πŸ˜€

  • Persona 5 Joker Art Print by ClearClarity on Redbubble – Β£10.91-Β£33.18 (link)

Me and Dane REALLY DON’T NEED anymore art prints for the house, as we can’t even decide where we want the ones we’ve owned for a year! Oh dear… >.< BUT I can’t resist the Joker print that ClearClarity has for sale… And to be perfectly honest I don’t know if I can resist the others either! I would love to get this to put up in the office. I’d love to have it in the living room but I don’t know if me and Dane would be able to mutually agree with that. I’d want to get the small prints and pop them all in one frame to create a sort of collage. We shall see what happens!

So those were my wish list items for July! It was incredibly hard for me to think of anything apart from the Kat Von D lipsticks and The Body Shop eye massager. I’m quite pleased I went and researched Persona 5 items on Redbubble mind, as I have discovered an amazing artist who I’m sure I’ll be buying from soon!

What items do you have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend!
