Happy September everyone! This post and the next one on the way will still be focused on events that happened in August. I was very focused on growing as a content creator this summer and I feel that I accomplished a lot of the goals I had set for myself. These past few months have gone by very fast for me but I am more than ready for Fall. I am looking forward to sweater weather and big anniversaries coming up! Luis and I will be celebrating 3 years together in November. October marks my 2 years on Twitch as a streamer and December is when I got partnered. I usually get carried away during the introduction part for most of my blog posts so this time I will try to keep it short and sweet. I just always have so much to say I'm sorry! I'm glad I was able to finally find time to finish this post. What are we going to be talking about today? I introduce to you: THE BIG BOX HAUL! Subbies sent me big boxes filled with incredible stuff that I just have to show off. I opened up everything on stream and it felt neverending! I kept taking out more and more items. I couldn't breathe by the end of it because it was all so unexpected. I want to thank Sampai, Sailrrvenus, and Hecksmaniac for putting together such lovely care packges.
More cards from hecksmaniac! Welcome Amiibo cards are basically extinct now so I am always happy to receive more. They are so hard to find nowadays and I really wish they didn't discontinue them. I have never seen this "Lovely Majory" witch character before but I am obsessed with that fluffball with the one eye.
Stickers always make everything better! I like how Sailrrvenus added personality to her package. I opened this up and loved the presentation.
An overview of what was wrapped and waiting inside the box!
I don't know where these slips of paper came from but the cartoons and characters were very useful for the photo background. The different prints on these candy markers are amazing!
These markers totally remind me of the Mr. Sketch scented fruit markers from way back in the day. I've seen them in stores but I remember using them when I was at my Dad's office for Bring Your Daughter To Work Day. I was really young and needed something to do while I was waiting around. These are like mini versions!
Looks tasty right? Too bad it's not a box of real macarons. Erasers are the next best thing though! They are so cute and colorful I almost don't want to use them. I had a hobby of collecting gel pens and other school supplies when I was younger. I wouldn't ever dare to actually erase anything with the erasers shaped like desserts.
This sticky note set design is beautiful! Hydrangeas are perfect because we all enjoy those hydrangea bushes in Animal Crossing. BEST BUSHES IN-GAME!
I have been really into stationary lately so this was such a thoughtful gift. I really appreciate the Animal Crossing cards that she used! Feels like I am getting a letter in-game!
Four drawstring bags filled with stacks of amiibo cards!
I'll never forget this day. The day I won the Animal Crossing lottery.
Head over to the shop to browse the new cards!
I couldn't hold back my laughter when I saw these because I couldn't believe my eyes. Before I submitted my Blippo order I deleted these pens from my cart last second. The website was selling each pen individually too! Sam sent me two packs with all the icon stamps! I am so impressed with the quality of these because the ink is insanely vibrant. Each pen has a mini stamp on the end shaped like the charm attached to the top cap.
I am so excited about these pens and will be using them for my bullet journal!
A friend of mine sent me mail once and used this exact bear bag! I had no idea it was from Daiso. I don't have a Daiso near me and it's nice to know that all the adorable things I love are sold there. These are thin plastic bags that you can use for candy and other small goodies! I will be packing up amiibo cards with these for shop orders.
A mechanical pencil that is shaped like a syringe!? Intense. I love this circus bear and birb friend!!! It's like a super cute knockoff of Rilakkuma. It comes with a plain eraser inside the printed box.
Remember what I said about the washi tape? I am not guilty and this definitely doesn't count because I didn't buy it! Samantha is so so kind and sent me some floral washi tape that came with a small dispenser. I could fill it with any of the rolls that I own!
Have you guys ever bedazzled a phone before? I have never tried it and I feel like these erasers would be perfect for a clear case. I could hot glue them on then add gems and glitter! I'm trying to get my DIY on.
I am starting to recognize all these brands that are from Daiso. I have a cat letter set and now panda sticky notes!? I wish I could read the messages at the top but it doesn't matter because these poses are delightful.
I felt really smart when I took this out and guessed "correction tape" because at first I thought everything was in Japanese. It's literally written in big letters across the top LOL. GENIUS.
I think mini notebooks like these are wonderful! You can assign each one to a topic such as goals, ideas, or reminders. These look really similar to some of the Kate Spade planners that I have seen. I really like how it comes with a band because it just feels much more secure.
I thought this was a loofah or some kind of shower buddy but it's a kitchen sponge! It's a pink heart with a derpy smile. I am very happy with this.
When I saw the sleepy Pikachu pictured on the box I was not expecting it to be so tiny! It seems like there are other Pokemon you can collect too. because you get a full sticker book with the figure.
A big box for one tiny Pikachu. Images for size comparison.
Brought out my Tsum Tsums to pose with the stickers! The first few pages are original but then you have the ones that look like scribbles!
I didn't take pictures of every page in the Sanrio sticker book but here are a few that I thought were too pretty not to show! Pastel dreams to start with Hello Kitty, My Melody, and Little Twin Stars.
All the popular Sanrio characters are in here! I can't get over the Pompompurin page. I told Luis that him and the fluffy poodle represent us as a couple! When we first started dating, we would always talk to each on messenger through Facebook stickers. We love pointing out characters who remind us of each other! ❤
Hello Kitty has the most animu eyes I have ever seen. I wonder what will happen to me if I use this face mask. Will I have incredibly sparkly eyes after I am done with it?
This is a plastic container shaped like a push popsicle! It's filled with confetti and I have no idea when I will be using this. Maybe when I need to celebrate something? That might be impossible to clean up so I might just let it all go into a box and save it for crafts.
Another notebook to add to my collection! Alien pusheen cats in space! I think this going to be a new dream diary for me.
Samantha told me that these Pokemon face masks are from Korea! She sent me three different types and they each have a special use. Meowth is a vanilla nutrition mask!
Pikachu is a honey moisturizing mask!
Squirtle is a lotus hydrating mask!
Apparently this pack has face masks that look like a panda and tiger! Not going to lie it looks very freaky but I have never tried a spa item like this so I'll be using them with Luis hehe.
STICKY NOTES TRAVEL EDITION! As you can see for some of them you honestly can't even write anything but it might be awesome to put these on the front of a package. I can just tape it up so nothing falls off during transit.
I've been doing Hi-Chew wrong this whole time. I had no idea fizzie flavor existed!? I've only seen the original bag at the asian supermarket.
Both the cola and orange soda flavor taste like bubblegum for some odd reason. Still very good though!
I was in my favorite hobby shop a few months ago and became fascinated with a squishy bread keychain that had a cat face on it. I regret not buying it because whenever I go back I can't find it anywhere. I think this definitely fills the void because it's a whole dessert! I actually watched a video one time about a cafe that sells an ice cream treat like this.
Please buy stationary in sets! It will make your life so much better I promise. When you send mail you want EVERYTHING to match! This panda bundle comes with paper, envelopes, and stickers!
I hope one day I'll decide to bring out my creative side again and make some custom keychains for myself or to sell on the shop. The steps look pretty simple but I don't think I'll be making scary bunny rabbits. If I do use this kit you will be seeing Animal Crossing villagers from me!
It has been forever since I have owned a silly hair tie like this. My style is more quirky now so I should experiment with fun little accessories like this!
Here are some realistic cat stickers to brighten your day. I am very tempted to decorate Luna's food and treat container with these!
KITTY DIDN'T CHOOSE THUG LIFE THUG LIFE CHOSE HER. I seriously can't believe how talented Samantha is!!! I really want to find a frame for this so I can display it on my desk. She nailed her snooty look with that slight smirk! She's got her arms crossed like she's about to challenge you to a rap battle. The shading is fantastic and don't even get me started on that bow shirt.
Ahhhhh so adorable! Benjamin, Drago, Francine, and Benedict in chibi form! This what Animal Crossing figures should look like. I wish all villagers could get a funko pop or amiibo because I would gladly hand over all my money for that.
So what did you guys think? Did I go overboard with taking pictures of every single thing? Let me know if you thought this post was too lengthy and would rather just see an overview. I feel it's better to show everything though because I don't want to leave anything out considering that these items were gifted to me. I am still trying to figure out my blogging style. Formal or informal? I am long-winded sometimes so maybe it's better to be more brief. Regardless, I hope you all enjoyed this post and will look forward to the next one. It will be a summary of what my first anime convention was like! I was worried about how I would balance streaming and website work because I felt like I barely took any breaks. I am slowly starting to learn that taking time off is extremely important. Cranky villagers make a good point actually! If we do the same things every single day our body and soul will get stale. I want to be energetic and cheerful for every stream and to do that I need to recharge. I really appreciate my community for understanding this. I promise to work hard this month so that I can provide the best content for you guys. Let's all stay motivated and focus on our goals together. See you soon!
