Top 5 Animation Shows

I love animations. I don’t watch much tv but when I do it’s probably an animation show.

I wanted to talk a little bit about my top cartoons/animations. I thought it would be fun for you to find some to watch too through my recommendations.

Gravity Falls

This is definitely my absolutely favourite animation show. It follows the story of Mable and Dipper who go to stay with their Uncle Stan for the summer. They get up to all kinds of crazy things and they discover that Gravity Falls is not normal at all.

Mable is the cutest character ever and I would love to cosplay her one day. She has an adorable fashion sense and is super kind and funny. Uncle Stan is grumpy which brings a lot of humour to the show. Dipper is funny too but in a completely different way to Uncle Stan.

Hilda

I only started this show a few months ago but I’ve already watched it all… twice. Hilda, a fearless blue-haired girl, travels from a wilderness full of elves and giants to a bustling city packed with new friends and mysterious creatures. We follow her adventures and it’s just so fun.

Steven Universe

‘Weeeeee… are the crystal gems….’ But anyway, I adore this show. The animations are adorable and everyone can relate to a different character in some kind of way. I’m definitely a combo of Steven and Amethyst but maybe with a bit more Amethyst.

The Crystal Gems are a group of magical bearings who’s job is to save the universe. They have a half magical being called Steven who is like the little brother of the group.

Aggretsuko

I finished season one of this show just the other day and I loved it. With each episode only being 15 minutes long, it made the show easier to digest which was good for my short attention span.

Aggretsuko follows Retsuko ass she deals with her accounting day job and her horrible boss by singing heavy metal karaoke.

She-Ra

Now, I wasn’t sure if I should include this show in my list as I only just started it but it was so much fun during the first few episodes so I wanted to include it.

She-Ra, Princess of Power, leads a rebellion to free her land of Etheria from the monstorus invaders the Horde. My favourite character is Glimmer and she is fun and adorable.

What’s your favourite animation show?

My Top 5 Character Meets At Disneyland Paris

I’ve been to Disneyland Paris twice now and have a third trip booked. I know that’s not a huge amount but I’m grateful that I get to go at all.

In the future, Simon and I hope to get APs which means we will be going all the time but money doesn’t want that to happen right now.

In the meantime, while I’m missing the Disney magic, I thought I would write all about my favourite character meets in the parks.

Miss Bunny and Thumper

This is my all time favourite meet so I thought that I would talk about it first. It’s a funny story really. We were in the queue for the characters and something happened that made us leave the queue. We ended up all sad that we didn’t meet Miss Bunny and Thumper. So, we did some shopping. I bought a handbag with Mickey Mouse’s face on.

Anyway, we went back into the park and noticed that Miss Bunny and Thumper will be back at 1pm. We waited around for about an hour to meet them but it was totally worth it. Miss Bunny ended up loving my new bag and she posed with it. Thumper was upset that it wasn’t him that was on my bag!

Definitely the best character meet so far. Plus, Miss Bunny looks adorable with my handbag!

Marie

This was a character meet that I didn’t love so much as it was happening but thinking about it now, it made my trip extra special. We didn’t have to queue very long to meet Marie which shocked me as I figured that people would love to meet Marie.

At the time, I thought that Marie was freaky as she just clawed at me and stroked my hand but thinking about it now, it was super fun and funny.

Jafar

The line to meet Jafar was the best queue ever. I was hyped and super excited so I kept making jokes.

“First we were JaFAR, then we were JaNEAR”

I realise that isn’t actually that funny but I was so happy that I would laugh at anything.

When we got to Jafar, I asked him if he was the hugging type. He shook his head at me and it was one of the best moments ever.

Daisy Duck

This was the first meet of the second trip. As soon as we arrived in the park, I noticed Daisy and ran over.

Me and Daisy posed a lot and took plenty of photos. Even though I was extra fat (I’ve lost weight since), these photos are some of my favourite of myself. Not because of how I look but because of how happy I am.

Goofy

This was the last character meet of the second trip. We were packing up and waiting for the coach to the airport when Goofy arrived so of course, we had to squish in one more character meet before we left.

I gave him the biggest hug and told him that I would see him soon.

I can’t wait to go back to Disneyland Paris and meet more characters. Have you ever been before? Who was your fave character meet?

How To Plan For A Road Trip To The Beach

The items mentioned in this post were gifted to me in return for a review but this in no way influences my opinion.

The warmer weather is approaching which means one thing; trips to the beach!

For some people, the beach can be just a walk down the street but for others, it can be a huge day trip. Personally, for me, a trip to the beach is at least at hour in the car if not more. But with warmer weather on it’s way, we should all be getting ready for our beach trips.

First of all, grab a blanket. You’re probably wondering why you need a blanket. Allow me to explain. The blanket is for the car journey. It might be a warm day but you still want to be comfortable on your long journey.

My choice of blanket is this lovely blanket from Character World. If you didn’t know yet, then I absolutely adore My Little Pony. So this adorable My Little Pony blanket is absolutely amazing. It isn’t too heavy and is soft enough to keep you warm but cool at the same time.

Next to grab is the obvious; a beach towel. If you’re going to be sitting on the beach, you’ll want a towel to sit on so that your clothing doesn’t get absolutely covered in sand (unless you’re into that).

Once again, mine is My Little Pony themed. It;s a super cute beach towel and captures the warm vibes perfectly.

Don’t forgot snacks. You’re going on a road trip to the beach so snacks are super important. You’ll want snacks for in the car and snacks for on the beach. Don’t get sand in your food though because that does not taste good, trust me.

If you’re after a beach towel, blanket or anything of the kind, head on over to Character World to pick yourself up some great quality beach trip supplies. They have everything from My Little Pony, Pusheen, Pokemon and Disney!

Kawaii Box Unboxing And Review

I was gifted this products for free in return for a blog post and YouTube content. All opinions are my own!

For the longest time, I have wanted to work with Kawaii Box. I have always wanted one of their boxers but I just figured that I couldn’t afford it so I gave up on the idea.

That was until Kawaii Box allowed me to receive one of their boxes to review and unbox for you lovely readers.

I was so excited for this Box to arrive, I had been waiting at the door everyday at post time so that I wouldn’t miss the box.

As soon as the boxes arrived, I was so excited. I rushed to my desk to unbox it straight away!

The box was the Valentine’s Day box which was perfect because I received it a day before Valentine’s Day.

Also, can we just take a minute to talk about the packaging! How effing beautiful is the box?!

I’ll talk a little about each item first.

The first thing that I pulled out the box was a super cute DIY bracelet bead kit. This was adorable and I decided straight away that I was going to make a bracelets as soon as I’d finished this post and edited my YouTube video. Although I’m an adult, I still appreciate a bit of fun so this bead kid was lovely. If you have kids, it would be a fun thing to do together.

The second thing that I noticed was the pink trinket box. This little heart shaped box is just the cutest! I’m going to use it to store any spare craft pieces and buttons. I think it would look super cute on my desk.

I then found some SakuPan panda snacks. I didn’t want to share my snacks with anyone as they were super yummy. I did end up giving one to Simon though and he weirdly didn’t like them. He doesn’t like strawberry flavoured things though and these were strawberry flavoured so that’s to be expected.

Following the super yummy snacks, I pulled out some adorable Pompompurin socks. They are super fluffy and kawaii and I just love them so much. In fact, I am wearing them as I type this.

In the box, there was also a super kawaii Hello Kitty and Pompompurin dish. This dish would be perfect on a bedside table where you can put your watch and rings and anything else you can think of. It would just look the absolute cutest.

Also, there was a lovely cat pass. I think that’s what I’m going to call it. It’s like a pass that ‘professional’ wear on a lanyard and I love it. If you know me, then you’ll know that I love lanyards.

Possibly my least favourite thing (which I still really enjoy) was a pink squishy heart. It is a slow rising squishy which I love and it also comes on a little chain so you can hang it on stuff.

Another thing that I received in the box was a mechanical pencil. It has a little sweet charm on it and although it arrived broken (but I fixed it), I still love it.

One of the other things that I receive were some panda stickers. Simon claimed these straight away and now they are his. He loves stickers a lot (which is odd for a 26 year old man) but ya know..

Lastly, I received a keyring. It has an adorable love heart on it and there’s also too little jars of pixie dust on them.

If you would like to receive your own Kawaii Box then here’s a little giveaway for you.

Aggretsuko First Impressions

Oh Netflix, how you create some great content!

I was looking for a new, easy to watch anime and when I found an anime with rage and cuteness in one.

What I’ve Heard

Believe it or not, I have never really heard much about Aggretsuko. I knew that it was full of rage and it was based on a workplace but that’s all I knew. I never thought that it would be my kind of show though.

Expectations

With each episode only being fifteen minutes long, I didn’t expect to gain much from watching the show. The characters are super simple yet so cute so I was super unsure of if I’d like it or not.

Thoughts while watching it

Retsuko is a red panda character from the Sanrio franchise. She’s basically an office lady who works in the accounting department. She’s often stressed out and has pent up frustration, mainly because of work. To release that stress and frustration, she secretly karaokes to heavy metal. Hence, Aggressive Retsuko (Aggretsuko).

The show is seemingly cute and funny. I really did enjoy it so far. It’s a great short watch since each episode is about 15 minutes long. However, it’s not just interesting because it’s seemingly cute and funny. The show is quite relatable. If you work in a stressful situation or maybe have too much stress in your life, you will completely be able to relate to Retsuko.

Retsuko basically works hard and is just doing her best to live. However, her bosses at work are assholes. Especially her male boss who is a literal chauvinistic pig.

I actually really enjoyed the show after the first episode. Not just because it’s cute, funny, and that it brings societal issues and pressures to light. I am looking forward to watching the rest of the series and having series two come out this year.

Have you watched Aggretsuko? If you have, what did you think of it?
