Blippo.com Kawaii Shop | Mystery Kawaii & Candy haul unboxing

Blippo Kawaii shop is exactly what it sounds like, an on-line store selling a massive variety of kawaii merchandise with the added bonus of selling candy too with free basic shipping to the UK! If you’ve been reading my blog for a few years, you’ll remember that one of the kawaii subscription boxes I used to get was from the same company.

Blippo have recently started selling Fukubukuro lucky bags for candy, stationary and kawaii items and so my Bestie and I decided to do a joint order for some, as we really wanted to know what was in them! We opted to buy one kawaii and one candy mystery bag together and share the contents of between us. Seeing as we were placing an order anyway we took the chance to order a few other things we’d wanted to try as well.

Birchbox August 2017: Mermaid Vibes

 

Birchbox is a monthly beauty box priced at £12.95 a month (That includes P&P). I’ve always been curious about Birchbox. From photos I’ve seen around the internet it’s always looked like a high quality beauty subscription and seemed to have a good selection of items included. The one thing that put me off, and it’s the same reason I cancelled some of the other subscription boxes I had, was that sometimes (or quite a lot of the time in past cases) you get items you don’t want or won’t use and end up binning or giving them away. I’ve been keeping an eye on Birchbox’s previous boxes and I’ve only spotted a couple of bits I wouldn’t use.


This month however, I got a little bit obsessed over the really colourful mermaid box they were sending! Fortunately for me I came across someone selling their box as they didn’t like the contents and were going to return it, so to save the middle man I bought it from them to try out!

If you’ve not received your box yet and don’t want to spoil it don’t hit the read more button!

Vintage Weight & Pay @ The Hexagon

Hello Lovelies,

You know what, I’m going to get straight into this, if you know me then you know I love a good bargain. I grew up buying things from charity/thrift stores, jumble and carboot sales. A friend and I spotted the Vintage Weigh & Pay being advertised on Facebook and decided to go along – we both love a good second hand sale and this promised to be delivering at least 6 tonnes of vintage goods including berets, dresses, Dr Martens and converse. All of my favourite things. At £15 a kilo this was not a cheap venture and whilst some things were capped such as the Converse and Dr Martens this could get pretty costly pretty quick, but I really wanted some new boots and berets and the photos shown on the FB page looked great, so we figured, hey, why not!

We decided on getting the £3 early entry and turned up at 9:50am to find that there was no sign of the sale anywhere – the Hexagon was locked up and there was no information anywhere (Hey to the queue jumpers who pushed in front of us whilst we were waiting). The doors to the Hexagon opened at 10:00 am and we found there were quite a lot of people waiting downstairs already who had gone in via another entrance. Honestly, it would have been a really, REALLY good idea to have some sort of signage pointing at where the sale was taking place or which entrance we should have been taking.

Korean Cosmetics at TK Maxx + Mini Haul!

Hello Lovelies!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, then you must know by now how much I adored Korean cosmetics! I love everything about them, from their cute designs, magical skin transforming properties, scents and varities. The only thing I don’t like about them is how hard it is to obtain ANYTHING in the United Kingdom, you can’t just pop into the nearest Superdrug or Boots and pick up a Tony Moly facemask. You’re either stuck ordering online or having to travel to somewhere like China Town in London, until now. TK Maxx has started to stock a massive range of Korean beauty products! I can’t tell you how fast I ran to the store nearest me when I discovered this, handily its also available online too. So far I have seen products from Etude House, The Face Shop, Tony Moly, and Koelf Cosmetic. I’ve also seen a few other non-named brands for sale too. The one thing I would say is that there are a few brands being stocked that have been designed to look like the Korean brands but were actually made in the USA.
