Plaza Magazine's Jim Rickey contest.

Carve Mid - Leather/Patent - Black Jim Rickey sneakers.
 
I got a e-mail from Plaza Magazine three weeks ago saying that I had won their Jim Rickey contest so I got to choose a pair of shoes that I wanted from the website and I obviously chose the ones above; Carve Mid - Leather/Patent - Black”.
 
The Jim Rickey shoes are actually a shoe brand for men but who cares. I think most of their shoes looks like unisex shoes anyway and especially their sneakers. I chose the sneakers that I liked the most from their website and luckily they had them in my size. I usually have size 40 in shoes and that's the smallest size Jim Rickey have.
 
I used my shoes for the first time on Saturday but unfortunately I got big chafes on both my feet. I get chafes on my feet sometimes but I don't think I've ever gotten chafes that have been this big so that's unfortunate. I could barely walk home because it hurt so bad but luckily I don't have to go anywhere this week so hopefully that will help them heal if I stay inside and don't use any shoes for some days. I hope that I will be able to use my new shoes in the future without getting chafes, otherwise it's pretty unfortunate if I have to put band-aids on my feet every time I want to wear them.
 
To be honest I don't even remember that I competed in this contest so the e-mail was a nice surprise. I enter so many contests that I can't keep track of every contest that I enter, haha, but it's always nice to get a good surprise.


150411 - HBO Nordic's “Game of Thrones” Premiere Party!


Outside of Skandia.

Targaryen. ♥

We were about to see Episode 1 of Season 5 at around 8:30 pm!
After we had seen the episode and went out from the cinema Johanna managed to take 2 goodiebags to us. The goodiebag contained a Jimmy Choo Man 100 ml eau de toilette and a Jimmy Choo Blossom 2 ml eau de parfum sample.
 
Kit Harington is the face of Jimmy Choo Man as you can see, so even though it's a perfume for men I probably won't give it away because Kit Harington/Jon Snow is on it! I'm happy that Johanna managed to take 2 goodiebags to us because there was almost none left when we came out and I wouldn't want to miss out on a perfume with Kit Harington himself on the perfume.


Disney Store “Cinderella” contest.


I won these beautiful things from Disney Store 2 weeks ago. ♥

Cinderella shopping bag.

Cinderella & The Prince Disney Film Collection.

Disney Store had a Cinderella” contest on their Facebook page not that long ago and I was lucky to win the first prize which consisted of all the items above. I'm a big Disney fan and I loved the “Cinderella” movie so I'm very happy that I won these things! ♥ All of the things are so beautiful and I like all of them.

I don't have a iPhone so unfortunately I won't be able to use the mobile case but I might just keep it anyway since it's so beautiful.


Mugglenet's Once Upon a Tee contest.

Earlier in the week I got this t-shirt that I won from Mugglenet and Once Upon a Tee!
 
Mugglenet had a contest with Once Upon a Tee where you could win a tee of your choice and I chose this design with Hagrid and Harry Potter. Once Upon a Tee is a website that features work from artists around the world in the form of t-shirts and Mugglenet is a website about Harry Potter so of course you could win a tee with a Harry Potter design.

Me and my Brother went to the “Game of Thrones: The Exhibition” in Stockholm on Saturday, March 7, when it opened.
 
We got there just before 10am and we queued for about 4 hours and 15 minutes to get inside. I knew that the queue would already be long when we got there but I was happy that it wasn't longer than it was because I had kind of expected it to be even longer. While we were queuing the queue obviously just became longer and longer and at one point it went around the whole Kungsträdgården. After we had queued for about 2 hours or something we heard that the queue was closed for the day. As I wrote before the Exhibiton would be open between 10am to 8pm every day while the Exhibition is here but the queue closed for the day already at around 12pm. I think the queue was the longest on the opening day which is probably what you can expect on the first day and especially since the first people arrived at 5am to start queuing but I've read in the Facebook event afterwards that some people got in after queuing for about 1 hour on other days.
 
It was obviously tiresome to queue for more than 4 hours because we just stood there and waited the whole time and it was pretty cold outside and it was also windy which made it even colder. When I came home I put on my pajama pants, a warm sweater, my down slippers and even a pair of thin cotton mittens that I have and laid under a blanket on the sofa and it took some hours before I got warm again. Besides having to queue for that long outside in the cold the only thing I didn't like about the Exhibition was that once we got inside there was another queue to “The Wall”. They had 3 interactive things you could do inside the Exhibition and the 4D experience of going up in an elevator to The Wall was one of them. It was also the only interactive thing I knew about before we got inside and the only thing that I wanted to do. But when we had already queued for over 4 hours it was a bit dissappointing to see another queue and there was a sign that said that you would have to queue for about 1 hour and I felt like I was just too tired to be able to queue for another whole hour so we didn't do that even though I would have wanted to try it.
 
Besides that it was obviously fun and interesting to see all the things from the show and I recognized almost everything. I also took photos of everything at the Exhibition and a few photos unfortunately ended up blurry but other than that I've included all of the photos in this blog-post so if you weren't able to go to the Exhibition you can at least see my photos that I took inside.


Hollygood contest by Ferrero Rocher.

I won this Hollygood-box from Ferrero Rocher!

The box was filled with the moviesBattleship, Bridesmaids, Contraband, Les Misérables, Savages and Zero Dark Thirty and the sweets are from Ferrero Rocher, Kinder Maxi, Kinder Bueno and Tic Tac.

I've already seen Bridesmaids” and Zero Dark Thirty” but I look forward to see the other movies and I will of course eat the sweets too and also give some to my Mom! ♥


Kawaii Box December 2014.


Here's the 11 items that I got in my Kawaii Box for December 2014!

I got this Christmas card.

Doughnut charm.
I don't think that this doughnut charm looks that nice and I'm not going to use it either unfortunately.

Pastel Rainbow Pouch.
I like pastel colours and this pouch is really cute! I'll definitely use this in the future to store something in.

Christmas stationary set.
I love stationary so I'll definitely use this and I've already sharpened the pencils and put them in my pencil-box.

Crown headband.
This headband is in plastic and it's probably not that comfortable and it's not my style so unfortunately I won't use it.
Kabaya Saku Saku Panda Cookies.
These cookies tasted both cookies and chocolate, which is exactly what they are.

Bunny Plushie Charm.
This is a cute little bunny and I've already put it among some other cute charms that I own.

Nail Deco Flakes.
I'll probably try to make some nail designs with these stars in the future. Maybe they would look good with a pink nail polish under them or even with a dark nail polish for a more cooler nail design.

Heart shaped notebook.
I can always find some use for notebooks! The papers in the notebook was in four different colors.

Christmas card and envelope.
This is a really cute Snowman Christmas card! I'll keep this for myself and since you can fold the card out I'll probably use it as a small Christmas decoration in the future because I think it would look good as a Christmas decoration. I'll probably put it on the windowsill or maybe on my desk in the future.

Christmas stickers.
I love Christmas and I really like stickers as well so I'll definitely use these.
Hello Kitty beauty scissors.
Who doesn't know that I love Hello Kitty by now?! The bow on the scissor is red on one side and yellow on the other side. I like that it's cute but it also looks classic since it's white.
 
My favorites were the pouch, stationary set, plush charm, Christmas card, Christmas stickers and the Hello Kitty beauty scissors.

I've never had any problems with Kawaii Box before but my December box was late because apparently PayPal hadn't created the order to Kawaii Box even though I had paid for this month. I have the automatic subscription so it gets paid automatically through PayPal every month and I don't have to do anything. But I e-mailed them since my Kawaii Box usually arrives around the 14th every month and in December it obviously didn't arrive then so that made me wonder why. They could see my payment and told me what must have happened and then they sent the box right away so at least I got the December box. Then I ended and restarted my subscription since they advised me to do that so hopefully I won't get any problem in the future and hopefully the box will arrive around the 14th like usual again. So this is obviously why I didn't publish this blog-post in December. I actually got my belated December box and the January box on almost the same day because they've started shipping the boxes earlier, so I think I'll publish the blog-post about the January 2015 box after this blog-post.

What is Kawaii Box? Every month you get a box filled with a mix of 10-12 unique Japanese and Korean kawaii products. Kawaii Box costs $18,90 per month and shipping is free. Your box is shipped in the beginning of each month.


Kawaii Box November 2014.


This is the 10 items that was in my Kawaii Box for November 2014.

The “thank you” card.

Pony BrownLittle talk sticky post-it notes, 20 sheets.
I really like cute little post-it notes like these so I'll definitely use them in the future!

A macaron charm.
I don't know what I'm going to use this for but it's very well made with all the different details. Apparently you can open the macaron as well so if you'd like a secret place to hide or store something small, this might be it.

A pink Neko plush key-ring.
This pink cat really looks like PusheenPusheen is a gray cat that's really popular online and the creators behind it post a lot of different animations and I've seen a lot of Pusheen animations during the last years. I love cats so I obviously like Pusheen and this pink little cat is really cute!

A green/pink zipper bracelet.
I've never seen any bracelets like this one before. It's pretty cool and unique but it's not really my style unfortunately.

A pinkOMGkey-ring.
I think some people would like and use this key-ring, but I probably won't use it for anything.

A 1 m Deco Tape roll.
I will probably use this Deco Tape for making cards and use it to decorate presents etc.

A Yoofun Puffy Sticker sheet with Pandas.
I will definitely use these cute Panda stickers! It's nice that they're puffy stickers too and not normal flat stickers.

A Pocky box with chocolate flavour.
Pocky with chocolate flavour! Yummy! I look forward to eat them!

A 2015 Little Sheep Mini Calendar.
I really like this cute mini calendar! As you may be able to see on the second photo, the calendar have a kind of cardboard in the back which makes it able to “stand up” on it's own so it's perfect to put on your desk or on your bedside table or something. The calendar starts this month, November 2014, so you can start using the calendar right away and use it until December 2015.
A pair of My Melody socks.
I like My Melody so I was happy to see these socks, until I saw the size... They're in the Japanese size 23-24 cm which converts to a size 36-37 in European sizes! And the socks are definitely a size 36 or smaller because I put the socks under my foot and my whole heel is outside of the sock, haha. I'm usually a size 40 but sometimes even a size 41 or 42. One time I measured my foot with one of my brother's friends by putting our feet together and they were the same size and he have a size 42, haha. I've always had big feet which is pretty weird since I'm so short (I'm 158 cm) but at least I'm standing steady on the earth! I've read and heard that it's really hard to find shoes in Japan if you have big feet (and even smaller shoe sizes than mine seems to be considered big there from what I've heard about the sizes you can find in most stores) so it would probably be nearly impossible for me to find shoes there. According to Wikipedia I would probably be a size 26 cm in Japanese sizes which converts to a size 40-41 in European sizes. I've never heard about anyone finding shoes in that size in Japan so far so I'll have to see if it's a mission impossible or not when I travel there some time in the future. They definitely make really cute shoes in Japan so I really think they should make them in bigger sizes so everyone would be able to use them. 

I definitely liked the Kawaii Box for November! ♥
The post-it notes, Pusheen key-ring, Panda stickers, Pocky and the Little Sheep mini calendar were my favorites. I also liked the My Melody socks until I discovered the problem with the size, haha.

I wonder if the Kawaii Box for December will have a Christmas theme. Since I love Christmas I think it would be really fun if they did have a Christmas theme but we'll have to wait until next month to find out.

“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 1 DVD contest.

Today I got my “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Season 1 DVD that I won in a contest on DVDKritik.

I've heard about the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” series but I've never seen it before. It seems to be a series I would like though considering it's a action, drama and sci-fi series and it's made by Marvel.

Now I have the whole Season 1 DVD to watch and hopefully I like the series. Season 2 is airing in the US right now so I can start watching that after I've finished watching this Season 1 DVD.


HEOS 3 by Denon speakers contest.

 Today I got my package with my Heos 3 speakers from Denon that I won on Icakuriren.
 
The speakers are portable and you don't have to connect them to a radio. You just connect them to your phone, tablet or computer and then you can listen to the music you have in your phone/tablet/computer or listen to Spotify (or other music services but I only use Spotify) or listen to whatever internet radio channel you want to listen to.

There's also a free app called Heos by Denon that works like a remote for the speakers so I'll probably have to download it but it makes sense to have an app to control the speakers since you can connect them and listen to music through your phone. The app is available for both Android and iPhone.

I won't use the speakers until I have my own home because I don't really have any use of them right now and I don't have any place for them either. But I will store them safely until I have my own home and then they will still be brand new.


Kawaii Box October 2014.

This is the 11 items that was in my Kawaii Box for October 2014.
 The “thank you” card.

Cupcake stickers.
These stickers were really cute and they're not flat like normal stickers which I like. I'll definitely use them.

Jewelry seal/stickers.
This is jewelry stickers that you can use to decorate your phone or whatever you want. I won't decorate my phone with these since I still have my Rilakkuma phone case and I'm still in love with it but I'll probably use these to decorate something else or for some crafts.

A cute frog card and an envelope.
This card is really cute because you can open the frog's face and write a message inside and then close it again and the message in the card will be hidden until you open it.

A Puccho Grapefruit flavor gummy candy pack.
I'm not sure if I've ever tasted a real grapefruit before but this candy does taste like some sort of fruit so maybe it does taste like grapefruit. The candy reminds me of chewing-gum except it's candy, which is probably why it's called gummy candy. 

A pink/white pencil-box.
I think this is a pencil-box at least. I already have more than one real pencil-boxes in good quality and I also have a kind of carton mug where I store pencils, so I won't use this as a pencil-box but maybe for something else. 

2 candy hair-ties.
I think these are pretty cute and I've already put them on my shelf in the bathroom so they're ready to be used. 
A bear pencil sharpener.
This bear pencil sharpener is too cute and I'll definitely use it from now on.

A Rilakkuma ice cream squishy charm.
I like Rilakkuma but I don't really know what I should use this for, maybe for some kind of decorating or something.

A white cat plush charm.
This cat plush charm is really cute and I've put it next to my Jiji (from Kiki's Delivery Service) stuffed animal.

A pink little towel.
I may use this as a kitchen towel in the future or just as a small towel for something. It kind of looks like a kettle holder but it's made in a towel material so I would never use it as that because obviously I don't want to burn myself.
A Hello Kitty ink pen.
Since I love Hello Kitty I obviously really liked this pen and I've already used it and I'll definitely continue using it until it doesn't work anymore.

I really liked my Kawaii Box for October 2014!
So far I've been very happy about both my October and my September box, and my August box have been the only box so far where I wasn't happy with all of the items. So I'm definitely happy with my Kawaii Box subscription and hopefully they will continue being as good as they have been for these two months and I'll definitely continue being happy with all of my boxes.

My Celeborn “Cuddle Clone”. ♥

Tonight I picked up my CelebornCuddle Clone” from the post-office. ♥

I ordered him on CuddleClones.com on 29 June so it's taken almost 3 full months for him to be made and then shipped from the US to Sweden where I live. The website says that it takes 3 months for your Cuddle Clone to be made so you have to order them in time if you want it before some special date.

I found out about CuddleClones.com a while after my beloved Celeborn had passed away and I obviously wanted to get a Cuddle Clone made of him, but at that time I couldn't buy it so I had to wait. Then at 29 June this year I realized that I could finally get a Celeborn “Cuddle Clone” so of course I ordered it right away! It was like it was meant for me to order it at that time because I also found a $50 coupon code on their Twitter which was valid for one more day so I got my Celeborn Cuddle Clone for a cheaper prize than the original $199 prize.
My CelebornCuddle Clone” to the right.

Graduating Class of 9/15/14Can you spot my CelebornCuddle Clone”? ♥ These 2 photos are from their Facebook page.

Do you want to buy a Cuddle Clone? Use the coupon codeMalinBelle” to get 10% off everything on the website!

What is Cuddle Clones? We make soft, adorable, customized stuffed-animal versions of people’s pets called Cuddle Clones. All you have to do is submit at least one picture (although several are preferred) and choose a few customization options (eye color, ear position, tail position) and we’ll send you your very own Cuddle Clone. A portion of each Cuddle Clone purchased goes to pet-related causes to help our furry friends get the care and love they deserve. So you can get a really cool product for yourself or a pet-loving friend and feel warm and fuzzy knowing that your purchase has helped better, and in some cases save, the lives of animals everywhere. Their kind, innocent souls thank you!


Loom band bracelets.

These are the 5 bracelets that I made with the DIY loom bands kit that I got in my Kawaii Box September 2014.

They are all laid out in the order that I made them, from the left bracelet in the top photo.
The blue/pink/purple in the top left and the rainbow bracelet in the bottom left are my personal favorites and I'll definitely keep them for myself. I've already had the blue/pink/purple bracelet on since I finished making it.

I'm going to give the middle rainbow bracelet in the bottom photo to Johanna, because that's the one she wanted when I asked her. I'll see if anyone else wants any of the others, otherwise I'll sell them in my Etsy shop that I'll open soon.


Kawaii Box September 2014.


This is the 12 items that was in my Kawaii Box for September 2014.

The “thank youcard.

A light pink bow headband with white polkadots.
I think this headband is really cute and I've already worn it even though I was just at home.

A lilac Alpacasso mini purse.
Do I even have to say that I love this?! I love the Alpacasso plush animals so I obviously love this mini purse. Since it's so cute I'll probably display it somewhere or just put it with my other stuffed animals or I might take it with me in my bag when I'm going somewhere and put painkillers in it or something.

A pink/mint card holder lanyard.
There's nothing wrong with this but I probably won't use it since I always have my cards etc. in my real wallet.

A loom band DIY set.
I know that these loom bands are really popular and it's most common to make bracelets with them but you can also make other more advanced things with them. I didn't know how it worked at first but then I looked at the photos on the back for a while and figured it out. I've already made 5 bracelets so far and now I can't make any more since I don't have enough loom bands left. It was really fun making bracelets with loom bands so I'll definitely buy more and make more bracelets in different colors and patterns. I'll also put up photos of the bracelets I've already made in another blog-post.

A pink ice-cream squishy charm.
I don't really have any use of this so I'll see if I'll use it as decoration in my future kitchen or if I can make it into a magnet or something so I get some use of it.

A light blue donut charm.
This doughnut charm is really cute but a few of the small parts that's supposed to be the sprinkles fell off very easily which isn't good when you have a pet. I don't think anything would happen if he swallowed them since they're so small but it's obviously not for cats so you have to be careful. The ice-cream squishy also have sprinkles on it that might fall off. Anyway, I might use this as well as decoration or something in my future kitchen. 

A Rilakkuma cookie sticks package.
These cookie sticks was pretty yummy! And Japan makes the cutest candy/snacks package and paper!

A case with fruit deco flakes.
I like doing my nails and I usually have long nails (& yes, they're my own, I never use fake nails) so I might use these some time. They would probably be best to use during the Summer.

A cat earphone charm.
I love cats so obviously I like this but since I'm still using my light pink Rilakkuma phone case I can't use this. My phone case covers the whole phone so this earphone charm doesn't fit but I'll save it and maybe use it in the future, if I ever get sick of the Rilakkuma phone case.

A pair of white shoelaces with pink mustaches.
These are cute but I don't know if I'll ever use them since pretty much all my shoes are black. But Pika thought they worked as good as a toy (I was the one who dangled them in front of him so it wasn't that surprising, haha) so I might let him play with them if I won't get any other use of them.

A small lucky bear notebook.
You can never get enough of notebooks, right? At least I can't. This is really small and it doesn't contain many pages but I'll definitely use it for something.
 Stickers.
Stickers are always fun! You can see on the right photo how the stickers look like.

I wrote in my Kawaii Box August 2014 blog-post that I hoped the September 2014 box would be better since it's my Birthday month and my wish was fulfilled. I definitely liked this whole box and even though I don't really have a use for a few of the items, I still liked everything!

“The Pirate Fairy” DVD contest.

Today I got my “The Pirate FairyDVD that I won in a contest on Barnguiden.com.

I'm a big Disney fan and I obviously like Tinkerbell so that's why I entered this contest.
I've seen the 3 first Tinkerbell movies Tinkerbell(2008), Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure (2009) and Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue(2010) which are all a part of the Disney Fairies franchise.
 
I just have to see Pixie Hollow Games(2011) and Secret of the Wings(2012) before I can watch The Pirate Fairy(2014). The seventh Disney Fairies movie Legend of the NeverBeast” will be released in Spring 2015.


140905 - My 24th Birthday.


First course: Both me and my Mom had vegetarian spring rolls.

Main course: My Mom had chicken with cashew nuts and I had fried shrimps with curry sauce.

Princess Cake, which is a typical Swedish Birthday cake and I always get it for my Birthday.
On Friday, September 5, was my 24th Birthday!

Me and my Mom had dinner at my favorite Chinese restaurant.

After that we went to a grocery store to buy a Birthday cake for me and we obviously bought a Princess Cake, which is my favorite Birthday cake and it's the cake that I always get for my Birthday.


Old El Paso products from Buzzador.

Today I got my package from Buzzador with the new Stand'n'Stuff Tortillas from Old El Paso.

I got 2 boxes with 8 Stand'n'Stuff Tortillas in each + 2 Taco Spice Mix bags.

I really like Tacos, as most people do, and I prefer Tortillas before the hard shells that's shown on the Spice Mix bags so it will be interesting to try these new Stand'n'Stuff Tortillas. Since I like normal Tortillas I guess I'll like these ones too, since they're still Tortillas and they're just made in a different shape.

I'll ask my Mom if we can eat Tacos on Saturday or Sunday so we can try these Stand'n'Stuff Tortillas.

Buzzador
 
is a website where anyone can sign up to be a member and then they offer you different campaigns that you can say yes or no to. If you say yes and get accepted, you get to try the products that the campaign is about for free and also give some to your family/friends and then you get to say what you think about the products.


Kawaii Box August 2014.

I wrote about the Kawaii Box on July 30 and this is what I got in my Kawaii Box for August 2014.

I got my notification that I had a package to pick up at the post office on August 14 I believe but I waited some days before I went and picked it up, and I've just been procrastinating too much so that's why I haven't posted this blog-post before now, even though this is the August box and it's only 2 days left of this month. But since I'm a subscriber of the Kawaii Box I'll get one box each month so I'll try to write blog-posts about them just some day/s after I get them in the future.

You get this little “Thank youcard in your Kawaii Box, which I think is really nice.

This is all 11 items that was in my Kawaii Box for August 2014.
 A watermelon purse/pouch.
I do like watermelons but I'll probably never use this as a real wallet. I may use it as a temporary wallet some time if I'm just going somewhere and don't want to take my real wallet with me (which is obviously bigger and thicker than this) or I may use it to put something else in it. But I don't think that I'll use this regularly.
 A cupcake ring with hearts on it.
This ring is pretty cute but I won't be able to use it unless I have slimmer fingers one day because it's really small. It seems like this ring is a kids size and not for adults, so I think they should have added a adjustable ring so everyone would be able to use it instead of adding this small one that you won't be able to use if unless you have slimmer fingers.
A Giraffe key-ring.
I do like Giraffes but I probably won't use this. I mean, how many key-rings do you need? I have a small Hello Kitty key-ring in metal on my key-chain and that's it. I may just put this somewhere or give it to someone who wants it.
A Kumamon charm.
I don't know who this character is and I don't think it's that cute and I can tell that it's not good quality either.
A Panda plush charm.
I do like Panda's but this is even worse quality than the bear charm. You may be able to see that the stitches have gone up a little over the Panda's left arm. I don't know if it was that way when I got it or if the stitches went up when I gave it to Pika. He was so curious when I opened my Kawaii Box so I gave it to him to distract him but he only played with it for a little while so it's clearly bad quality anyway. You can also see that the eyes and mouth have been glued on the Panda.
A Nail Art sheet.
I like to do my nails so I'll definitely try this nail art stickers some time!
A macaron charm.
I definitely like real macarons and I think this macaron charm looks pretty good. I can tell that this charm is in a better quality than the bear and panda charms, which is good. I probably won't use this as a charm or key-ring, but I may use it as a decoration in my future kitchen in my future own home.
Rilakkuma note papers.
I really like Rilakkuma and I really like note papers etc. so there's nothing I can dislike about this.
3 pencils, 3 rubbers and 1 pencil sharpener.
I think this stationery set is really cute and I love the color blue, animals and Christmas so this was definitely a stationery set for me. 

A letter set.
I actually love and collect letter sets, so I obviously like this cute one.
A Kracie DIY candy kit.
Unfortunately I don't think that I'll ever make this because I don't think it will taste any good so therefore it won't be worth the time it would take to make it.

I really liked the nail artmacaron charm, Rilakkuma note papers, pencil set and letter set and I'll definitely use them all. I liked and may use the watermelon purse/pouch some time and I also liked the Cupcake ring and Giraffe key-ring but I won't have any use for either of them.

I liked 8 of the 11 things that I got in my Kawaii Box for August, even though I may only use 5 of them.
Of course I would have preferred if I liked all of the things I got in my box but I think it's normal to not like everything you get in these kind of subscription boxes, no matter what kind of boxes you're subscribed to. This box was my first Kawaii Box and as long as I enjoy getting a new box every month and like at least half of the items I get in each box, I definitely think it's worth it.

I'm already curious on what items I'll get in my Kawaii Box for September and that's also my Birthday month so I hope that the September box will be an extra good one!
 
What is Kawaii Box? Every month you get a box filled with a mix of 10-12 unique Japanese and Korean kawaii products. Kawaii Box costs $18,90 per month and shipping is free. Your box is shipped in the beginning of each month.


Disney “Beauty & the Beast” tank top from Hot Topic.

Yesterday I got my package with my DisneyBeauty and the Beasttank top.

I really liked this tank top when I first saw it some months ago and since Beauty and the Beast” is my #1 favorite Disney movie ever, I obviously had to buy it! ♥ 

I ordered the tank top from Ebay but it's originally from Hot Topic. It's not available on the Hot Topic website anymore and the shipping is ridiculously high anyway so I got it from Ebay instead. If you want to get something from Hot Topic or any other store in the US I would advice you to check if someone's selling it on Ebay because you would probably have to pay less for the shipping and save some money on buying it from Ebay instead.


“The Expendables 3” contest by FilmFenix.

Today I got my “The Expandables 3” movie tickets from FilmFenix.
 
They sent me an e-mail last Friday saying that I had won 2 movie tickets in their contest.
That was only one day after I got “The Monuments MenDVD that I had won so I basically won a contest two days in a row, haha. But I definitely don't complain about it! I love my luck and now I'm happy that I'm taking some time almost every day to enter some contests because it's definitely worth it. I started doing that just some weeks ago and I've already won 2 contests this month so I'll definitely continue with this new habit.
 
I actually saw the two first The Expandables” movies earlier this year with my Mom during one of our movie days/evenings. I may go and see the movie with her but if it's during the evening I'll go and see it with someone else.
