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.

Valentine’s Day Books ♡ A Collaboration With The Mum Who Read

I’ve wanted to collaborate with another blogger for the longest time. I had just never gotten around to it. But today is the day, the day that I’m collaborating with a fellow blogger. 

Today’s post is a collaboration with the very lovely Shannon from The Mum Who Read, so don’t forget to check out her blog too!

We were tossing some ideas back and forth until we eventually decided to write about books and Valentine’s Day. We both love books and romance so it’s the perfect topic.



So, if you’re looking for some romantic, love stories to read, keep on reading..! 

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

If you haven’t read this book yet then I just do not know what you’re doing with yourself. 

Everything, Everything follows the story of a girl with a disease which means that she can not leave the house without getting ill. When a cute boy moves in next door, she falls in love and it follows their story.

This was a super cute love story with amazing illustrations that made it easy to read. I also thought this book did a fantastic job at balancing the lightheartedness with the more serious stuff.

Noughts And Crosses by Malorie Blackman

Ah, one of my all time favourite books by one of my all time favourite authors.

This book is all about racism and discrimination. Sephy is a cross and Callum is a nought. Noughts and crosses just don’t mix. But can Callum and Sephy find a way to be together?

This book was very hyped when I first read it and now I completely understand why!

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

This book is my favourite by Rainbow Rowell even though I love all of her work. Maybe I’m slightly bias as I share a first name with the main character but ya know.?!

Eleanor & Park follows two characters who have completely different backgrounds. Eleanor is the new girl in town and Park is a quiet, cool kid (in Eleanor’s eyes anyway). Over time, they begin to fall in love.

The book has very mixed reviews but for me, it’s perfect. I loved the characters and I loved their little love story.

What books do you plan on reading this Valentine’s Day?
