Diamonds are a Yokai's best friend

 Back in July during San Diego Comic Con, Hasbro had a limited edition Yokai Watch figure and medal set available and I was lucky enough to get my paws on one with HUGE thanks to the wonderful Jerejoe ♥

J-LIST BOX: Halloween Edition

 J-list (aka/ Jbox) recently re-entered the Japanese Subscription Box market with their new J-list Box. Alongside the relaunch of the snack box they also released a limited edition Halloween box and I just knew that I had to get my spooky paws on one!

Be sure to check out my YouTube unboxing video for a quick run down of what was inside plus a cute secret hidden within the box's packaging. You can also see below for a more detailed look at what was inside along with some of my thoughts~


My blog has had a make over!

Whilst I liked the old pink and white layout, I found that it was rather straining on the eye to look at for longer periods of time, and sadly a lot of the colours were locked so I couldn't simply edit them and instead had to look for a whole new layout. I settled on this one as it allowed me to change the background colour (which is currently a light grey to break up the masses of white) and also have a rather fun header space!

Here's a quick list of other changes that this update will bring:
★ Removal of GFC follower widget: to follow the blog using GFC simply add the blog manually in your blogger dashboard using the add button in the left panel. Bloglovin' now appears as a smaller + symbol alongside other social media icons.
★ Popular posts and email subscribe: These were coded in to my new layout and I liked them
★ Future posts will no longer feature images with rounded corners: This is something I still like the look of but I feel like the rounded images don't suit the new pixel header etc, it's also time consuming to edit all the images so will be one less headache for me when it comes to posting
★ Post sharing: Another thing coded in to my layout, below each post is a small toolbar for sharing on some social media platforms, you don't have to use these but they're not very intrusive so I'll keep them around
★ I'm going to stop trying so hard: It's no secret that blogging isn't what it used to be and I know this blog will probably never see the follower numbers my previous one had, so I'm going to stop getting so hung up over this stuff and JUST HAVE FUN!

and I think that covers everything "important"
I hope you enjoy the new look and I'll see you soon with a new post!

FIGURE: Super Sonico with Macaron Tower

 It's been 10 years since the world was blessed with the presence of Super Sonico and so what better way to celebrate this than by showcasing what has to be one of my favourite figures to date. If anyone in the world loves macarons more than me, it has to be Sonico and so I was incredibly excited when this figure was announced, I knew from the start that it had to join my collection!

OYATSU BOX: September 2016 *

From now on I will be posting my rundowns of the contents over on OyatsuBox's blog and reserving my own blog for individual reviews of interesting snacks from the box. In my current format I'm having to open the box and all it's contents in a single sitting which feels very overwhelming and I often end up with snacks that have gone stale because I've had to open them for photographing.
I hope you're all ok with this new format (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
