Wow, I can't believe its been an entire year (nearly 2 years?!) since my last post. 

I have to say I really missed my blog, there were times throughout the years where I would go through my past entries just to reminisce. I also did that just before typing this post actually!

And..... I'm speechless. I went far back as 2012, and looking back so much has changed! Not only from how I wrote but other things too, more personal things but wow I was kind of cringy back than HAHA  But I guess thats how everyone is when they look back at their younger self? And I would come across a few "when I was younger" in those old posts, damn... now I feel really old LOL  I'll keep the posts around just for the sake of memories. That said, I hope to document more memories onto this blog in the future! Also, I'm in the process of changing my cursor, "Tsukari". I made this cursor when I was much younger and just left it because I never had the time to change it.

I'm fully aware of it being wrong now and I don't want any misconception or misunderstanding about it, so I do apologize if it was offensive or I was appropriating Japanese culture in anyway because I was young and thought having a "Japanese" name was something cool. 

So, why did I never make a post? Life, honestly. I got a part time job, I had college to focus on and just overall other things that took priority over my blog >< Blogging is actually pretty time consuming, though it may not look like it. But, even back then I said I could never abandon my blog and I still stay true to that  I love my blog and I love being able to blog, write my thoughts and document my life on it!!

I don't think I'll come back full throttle though, as that unfortunately seems unlikely :( however I do want to make and find time to blog again, but instead I want to make it more personal (ie less sponsored stuff) and more reviewing things I just feel like reviewing. When I was younger I thought being sponsored items to review was awesome, like free stuff hell yeah!! But as time progressed and I grew older I realize it's not that great, in fact it felt more like a chore. There were some things I didn't feel 100% interested in but I had to review them, and that made me feel like I was just forcing a review to happen and it reflected in the quality of my reviews. (I think I already deleted those poor quality ones though) Not that I wasn't grateful for all the opportunities I had! I'm very grateful for them, it's not often some random person like me can say "oh yeah I was sponsored stuff before" LOL jokes aside, I am very grateful. One of the many things that showed me "less is best". (However if you want to go wild with sponsorships and whatnot by all means u do u!!)

I do have quite a few makeup related things I've been wanting to review and I reallllly hope I can get to it soon!! 

Anyways, not sure if anyone really keeps updated on blogspot and such anymore LOL but thats ok!! I'm honestly wanting to start blogging again for myself and, as I mentioned earlier, to just document memories and share a few stuff/drop some bit of knowledge here and there. So if you ever see this, thanks for taking your time to scroll through my once dead blog.

I forgot how I use to organize and categorize my tags.... I wish I could redo all my tags they're so messy!!!  


Japan Crate: Doki Doki! ♡

Hello! Today's post will feature this super adorable monthly subscription crate called the Doki Doki Crate by Japan Crate! The Doki Doki crate is a monthly subscription box/crate that caters to your every cute needs and anyone who is subscribed has a chance to win a Suteki Crate -- which is a giant crate filled with big cute goodies. Japan Crate also specializes in food subscription boxes, which you can view here (only $12/month). 
Doki Doki Crate is your monthly supply of everything Kawaii. Inside you'll find 8-10 items ranging from adorable plushies & squishies to collectible keychains, figures, apparel, miniatures and more.

Crates ship the first week of each month with FREE PRIORITY SHIPPING within the US.

(From their website)
LOOK AT ALL THE CUTE ITEMS!! I apologize for my poor display of the Pokemon necklace OTL. I didn't realize it was like that until after everything! I was too excited to take photos.

The Crate also came with a small booklet that contains the items you have in your crate and some little snippets of other things such as comics:

A Hello Kitty figurine!

A better pic of the necklace and alpacasso coin purse! Super cute. I use the coin purse in my car to put extra change in for those times when you need it. The necklace is really adorable too! I'm a sucker for anything cute dressed as something else cute haha.

The Totoro items! I fell in love with the mini white totoro and the totoro calendar! I ended up giving my brother the calendar (since my desk didn't have any space for it and I thought this calendar suited him more!), my bf the pouch and I kept the white totoro ^^

The calendar is super handy. It comes in the tiny monthly format  as seen above and also the stretched out monthly format that you can write important things on in each day. Towards the end of the calendar there is also a couple of pages for notes! Good to use for reference in case you forget important dates.

Mini White Totoro ft. me (-:

The crate also came with a DIY Jelly Kit called Henshin Awa Jelly DIY. I have yet to try it but it looks so cute! I think I've seen this around YouTube on RRcherrypie, Mosogourmet and such. 

Everything was sooo cute!! I really like how not only did the crate come with cute plushies and decorative items but it also came with practical items. Shipping was fast as they offer priority shipping and the items came in perfectly intact and packed well. My favorites in this December crate is the calendar, the Nya-Kuma, Alpacasso coin purse and the White Totoro!!

(Forgot to include the sleeping mask............)
