April Favourites + a very pale coordinate~

hi everyone!

Just a quick update today- I made a new YouTube video showcasing some of my April Favourites, in case you're interested!
I also put together a coordinate a few days ago, which I was going to post to my instagram... but it sort of turned out too washed out. I've had a very specific image that I want on my account on there, but it didn't really fit into it...
But, I might as well post it here, so that at least someone can see it, if you actually read this blog ^^
Although to be honest, since changing my url, my view count has dropped a lot... but I guess that was expected.
Anyways, though, outfit:
Cardigan: Nile Perch
Dress: Liz Lisa
Shoes: Ebay (probably? they were a gift so I'm not 100% certain)
Purse: Aliexpress

In any case, I hope you all have a nice week

Tokyo Otaku Mode Review | Loppy Bunny~

Hi everybunny!
Today I thought I'd do a little review of my recent purchase from Tokyo Otaku Mode!
If you haven't heard of them, they're a site which sells Japanese clothing, anime merchandise, plushies, and food too! I've always wanted to order something from them and so I finally did!
The item I ordered was....
Mimipyon! She's a character from the Pote Usa Loppy collection made by Amuse; if you haven't heard of Amuse, they're a big producer of plushies that you can get in UFO catchers in Japan! They have a lot of super duper cute designs, but I've always loved the bunny series the most >///< (although you can check out all of their designs here!)
I wanted a Loppy bunny for years, and so finally my dream was accomplished!
Unfortunately they no longer have this particular one in stock, but they do have a lot of different bunny designs and sizes available! I ended up getting the big size (which isn't even the biggest, they also have a super jumbo size, but it's close to $200!)
But anyways, enough about me talking about the different types of bunnies: let's get into the review!

I made my order April 3rd, and she was shipped out April 5th! I chose the cheapest shipping option, which I think ended up being free because I was a first time customer. Luckily it  came with a tracking number, so I was able to track the progress of my bunny's arrival ^^ The total price ended up being $25, which I think is very reasonable!
Since I chose the cheapest shipping option, the shipping did take quite a while- she was delivered April 26th, which makes the shipping time approximately 3 weeks (if I recall, the expected delivery time was 2-4 weeks, so she arrived in the expected amount of time)~ 
The shipping was very sturdy- she came in a box, which I wasn't expecting! I'm glad the shipping was so sturdy though, because otherwise she could have gotten squished or damaged ;^;
Before I go on, I filmed an unboxing video if you're interested! It's not the most informative, mostly just my excitement at finally getting this bunny :')

Anyways, at the top of the package was a folder with a drawing of a girl on it! I don't know if she's from a specific video game/anime, so I'm sorry about that ;-; 

In the video I didn't notice that this actually held the invoice, as well as a sticker with a little ninja character on it! I think this is Tokyo Otaku Mode's mascot, if I'm not mistaken~
And finally....
If you watched the video, you would've seen that she came wrapped in plastic, but I wasn't able to get a photo of that, since I was filming ^^"
She's so precious though ;u;
She's blushing too!
You can't see it very well, but she also has a white and red polka-dot ribbon on her neck!
She's about 13 inches tall- I think she's one of my biggest plushies!

On the whole I'm super duper happy with my order- it was everything I expected it to be! 
Here's a summary of my whole experience:

Shipping❤ (5/5)
Although shipping did take a while, I chose the cheapest option, so that was expected~ Everything was well packaged and I like that they included a tracking number, so I have no complaints!

Price: ❤ (5/5)
I've seen these bunnies being sold for $40 in a lot of places, so the $25 I paid was very reasonable! I also didn't have to worry about her being a fake, because Tokyo Otaku Mode carries only authentic Amuse plushies c:

Quality: ❤ (5/5)
Again, since she's an authentic Amuse plushie, her quality is nothing other than fantastic!

Overall Experience: ❤ (5/5)
On the whole, I was very happy with my experience shopping with Tokyo Otaku Mode! I have absolutely no complaints, because the entire process was very smooth and my purchase ended up being exactly what I hoped it'd be ^-^ I ended up purchasing their premium membership, so I'll definitely be shopping more from them in the future!

I hope you found this review helpful 
Thank you for reading, bye-bye!

Some Recent Crafting~

Hi everybunny!
Lately I've been doing a lot of crafting, mostly for my Etsy store! 
I haven't felt super inspired lately to be honest, so this small burst of creativity has been quite nice ^^
So, I thought I'd share some of the little things that I've made, in case you're interested in seein

Bunny Earrings

I really like how these turned out, I thought they had a very Larme-kei look to them~

Cotton Candy Earrings

Bunny Choker
To be quite honest, I just got addicted to making pompoms (out of felting wool!), so I was inspired to make a lot of cute things out of them ^^"

Sailor Moon Transformation Brooch Choker
I really like how this turned out! I watched the most recent Sailor Moon series about a year ago and fell in love; I finally got around to making something inspired by it~

Strawberry Ribbon Kitten Choker
The design of this choker is really simple, but I thought it would make a cute subtle addition to an outfit~

Marshmallow Kitten Choker
I'll admit, I really like naming items in my store after sweets >///< Cause sweets are yummy, and who wouldn't want to wear something inspired by sweets?~

Pale Pink Satin Loungewear Set
I was really inspired by Nile Perch designs to make this loungewear set c: I've made several before, but this pink one was my first! I originally made it for myself, but then ended up never wearing it ;^;

Floral Cotton Bloomers
These were just a really simple pair of bloomers, but I like how they turned out, in particular how the green bows compliments the tiny hints of green in the pattern!

Anyway, I hope you liked seeing some of my most recent projects~
Thank you for reading!

Peiliee Shop Review {and Sweet Strawberry OOTD}~

Hi everyone! 
I recently purchased a wig from Peiliee, which is an online store which sells clothes and other cute things, such as jewelry and lingerie. They're based in Sweden, and they carry brands such as Bobon21 in addition to their own original designs~
I purchased the Barbie Pink Colour Changing Wig, which is no longer in stock unfortunately, but I thought I'd still write a review nonetheless ^^
So, let's begin!
Firstly, here's the stock photo of the wig~

In the photo, it's a pretty light brown/pink mix, which I thought would go well with a lot of clothes that I have~
I made my purchase on April 6th, and the wig was shipped out on the 8th, which is a pretty reasonable processing time! I really don't like when shops take forever to ship out their items, so it was nice that I didn't have to wait too long ^^ They also provided a shipping number, but unfortnately I couldn't get it to work ;^; The last time I ordered from them the shipping number didn't work either, which is a bit of a shame because I like obsessively checking the tracking eheheh ^^" Online they said that shipping to the US would take about 5-15 days, and my package arrived on the 17th, which falls right in the middle of the expected time frame. 
The wig arrived very well packaged, in a big and sturdy box~
All my items were in a nice thick plastic bag which was customized with the shop's name~ I like that this was included because I'll be able to store the wig in it c:
And everything that was inside the bag:
The wig was surrounded by a plastic barrier-thing, so that it wouldn't get smushed- I appreciate that so much care was put into the packaging! I also got a free wig cap (which has been very useful) in addition to cute cat paw sticky notes (which were also free!)
Here's the wig itself:
To be honest, I was a bit disappointed about the colour... I really was expecting more of a light brown with just a hint of pink, but in reality it's just a dusty pink colour with some streaks of brighter pink and light brown ;^;
Here's a closeup of the colour:
Colour aside though, this is a very nice quality wig. The fibers are smooth and soft, and it's a fairly thick wig, so you don't see the individual wefts. The construction is very nice! It's a 70 cm long wig, which I think is a good length; it still looks like a cute long wig, but it doesn't tangle too easily. 
I thought the brown colour would be more noticeable in bright lighting, but nope, still pink ^^"

Here are some more photos of it worn:

On the whole I think this is a very nice wig; it's high quality and a very pretty colour, I just wish it were more like the stock photo ;^; I'll still need to keep looking for a light brown wig, I guess ><
To summarize my whole experience:

Shipping: ❤ (5/5)
The wig was shipped out quickly and it arrived in the expected amount of time c: The packaging was also very sturdy!

Item Quality: 
Although the wig is nice quality, I'm a bit disappointed that it's not the exact shade that it was online... ;^; Although, I guess this is often a problem when buying wigs, you can never be 100% certain how it will look due to different lighting...

Overall Service: 
I received emails every time there was an update about my order, which I found very useful~ In addition to that, I appreciate the small gifts! The wig cap has been very useful; I've actually never used one before, but it makes the whole wig process much easier c:

Overall Experience: 
Despite the wig not looking exactly like the stock photo, I was happy with my experience shopping with Peiliee. I'll definitely be purchasing from them again because I think they're a great site with many cute items and fantastic service~ 

And to finish off this review, an outfit! I put the wig in braids and I thought it turned out quite cute~

Blouse: Amavel

It's Skin Babyface Petit Blusher Review {and Totoro-themed Corodinate}~

Hi everybunny!
Today I'll be doing a review that I've been meaning to do for a while, but I've kept putting off taking photos ;u; 
But finally, here it is~
Today I'll be reviewing the It's Skin Babyface Petit Blusher in the shade No. 1, Lovely Pink~ Let's start!

I purchased this blush off of Jolse, where it's currently available for $5.51 (although the original price is $6.48~)
I was drawn to this blush by it's adorable packaging- it's a rounded plastic compact with a transparent lid and a cute lil face!
Inside the blush is a little furry puff~
Even the blush itself has a cute design on it! Since I first started using it, the design has worn off, but it was a cute touch~
This blush comes in five different colours, one of which is a contour shade~ I think there's a nice range of colours for different sorts of looks c:
I really like this blush because it's quite pigmented, but not too chalky! It blends really nicely on my skin and I think it adds a really pretty touch of color to my cheeks~ I think it's a bit too bright pink to be considered a natural flush, but it does look very adorable~
before blush

~after blush~
And here are some more photos with the blush on~

What I really like about this blush is that it can be built up quite easily without getting chalky or messy! Here are a couple of photos where I'm more generous with this blush application~

On the whole, I really really love this blush! I've been using it pretty much every day because it's such a wearable colour and it looks so lovely~ I think I'm going to try out some of the other colours someday ^.^ I hope you get the chance to try it out someday~
And now before I leave, a quick coordinate! I decided to put this together after realizing I hadn't worn this pinafore in ages x.x 
And with that note, thank you for reading!
