Plushies?? Nah, they are pouches! Aren’t they cute? These pouches can be used for almost anything you want! As for me, I use them to hold coins, phone accessories (clip on fish eye lens, external charger), cosmetic essentials, and even cards (credit cards, clipper card).

Both Rilakkuma ones were gifted to me. The sea otter one is from Japan! My friend who visited Japan this year, came back with a little gift for me; she’s so sweet! The other/ flatter Rilakkuma was a secret santa gift from years ago.

The Totoro one my boyfriend ordered for me online (I forgot the site) and it was like, $10.00! It is actually a replica (hence the price). The authentic one has better quality and te white around the eyes are embroidered. You can find one at Kinokuniya! I think it is around $20

Jiji (black cat with red bow) was from Japan Expo! A exposition that was all anime and Japanese culture. I adore Jiji, who is from Studio Ghibli’s “Kiki’s Delivery Service”, and I instantly had to get it when I saw it at a dealer’s booth.

Lastly, the sleeping Dale Tsum Tsum pouch! Super cute and it was the last one when I bought it at the Disney Store! Typically, the “sleeping tsum tsum” are available in Japan (and probably Japanese online stores) so I was so excited to find it at the Disney Store!

Kawaii Notepad Collection!

Kawaii notepads galore! I have a thing for cute stationary and paper… even if I do not use it all. I use to have pen pals, but they slowly stop replying. I get it, life can be super busy! But nonetheless, I enjoy looking through these notepads, their cute characters, designs, and colors!

Majority of these notepads are of San-x characters and some (bottom row, left side) are just random but cute designs from Daiso Japan. The San-x ones were bought at Kinokuniya, Tokyo Japanese Lifestyle, and just online!

Sometimes I do use these papers, to write notes to my friends and make lists. Lists including: homework assignments, to-do’s, and shopping! I would add it into my agenda/ planner book and it just makes my pages extra cute!

 

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura was one of a few anime I adored and watched while I was growing up! There is news that Cardcaptor Sakura will return into a new TV anime series.

It is this year that is the 20th anniversary of Cardcaptor Sakura. So many new merchandise are coming out from the anime. Pictured above of Sakura, was from a surprise toy box I bought at a Japanese book store call Kinokuniya. I was so lucky to have picked the box with Sakura in it – she is my favorite! This little figure of Sakura is about 1 inch, she is wearing a pink outfit, and her pal Keroberos – one of the two Guardians of the Clow Cards.

Want to spruce up your room or living room with a pop of color and fruits?? I’d recommend these cute cushions! You can sit on the floor with them, on a chair, or against your back on a sofa. You can find these on eBay by searching “fruit cushions” and they come in a variety of fruit prints! Pictured above from left to right are: lime, kiwi, orange, onion (veggie!) and a watermelon! They are also washable, you can unzip from the other side of the fruit print. The cushion is super soft and cute! Great little home decor extra for your place or a gift for a friend!

Sleeping Pikachu!

I am SO happy!! I finally have a sleeping Pikachu plush! I’ve seen this all over the internet and knew you can get it only in Japan! Well, of course there are alternatives like online stores but it costs a lot, plus shipping, and long estimated arrival.

I was at Grand Century Mall on Story Rd. the other day and when I’m in the area, I love to check out the store “Jenny’s Gifts” because they do carry neat, cute, and Anime things. The sleeping Pikachu was the first thing I saw and I had to buy it! I’ve been asking friends who were visiting Japan to keep an eye out for a sleeping Pikachu for me, but they had no luck. But it is all okay now, because I found one in a store in San Jose! It is authentic plush imported from Japan. You can definitely tell by the tags on the plush.
