My First Kawaii Box, and I Won a Giveaway!!!

Hello my rebels!

Once again I'm skipping a Eurobeat Challenge Time, since I can't think of a post to match one of the song titles, but don't worry, I haven't given up, just a break! I'll continue next Wednesday. ^__^

I saw many bloggers rewiew the Kawaii Box, and the items do really look cute. So I figured I might as well give it a go.

They ship world wide, which is a big plus and a subscription costs USD $18.90 per month, with free shipping! You can't really go wrong with that. A big mac meal at McDonalds pretty much costs that much here (yes, although the land of chocolate, Switzerland is expensive...).

Here are the items for September:

ng500_kawaii_box
ng491_kawaii_box

I'm not convinced with the ice cream phone charm - the sprinkles are already falling off... Still cute though.

Overall, I'm happy with the items. They are all just so exceptionally pink... Still, I'll keep the subscription going. Let's see what I'll get the next few months. Just so it's clear, I paid for it myself. ^__^

I'll probably keep some of the items for a giveaway at some stage. How would you feel about that? Of course I'll include other cool stuff. ^__^

What do you think? Do you like any of the items?

^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^

Also this month, I won a giveaway on Miho's Happy Life blog. I was so surprised, since I hadn't won anything in ages. Thanks again, Miho!!!! *__*

I'm looking forward to trying these out. ^^


Have you ever won a giveaway?


That's it from me for today.

Peace out and may the force be with you!!!

Favourite Things #02

Finally, I have furniture and set up my room nicely. I had forgotten just how many cool things I had!

Without further ado, the next edition of some of my favourite things. ^__^


ng487_darthvader_starwars
Darth Vader is just too cool, and his jumbo sized lego alarm clock version makes him just all the more cooler. ^__^
ng488_ikea_bookcase
My new book case from Ikea filled with lots of my favourite things! It needs a bit of rearranging though...
ng489_prinz_der_klingen
Currently reading this book. It's pretty cool, about an assassin who loses his memory and has to find out what happened. It's in German, if you haven't already guessed.
ng490_bleach_plushies
Just a few of my Bleach plushies. I used to love the anime so much.

ng490_ps4_ps3_destiny_white_playstation_4
And of course, my new set up. TV, PS4, PS3. Destiny is a fun game. I ended up playing it for 5 hours last Sunday. Time just flies when you're having fun. ^__^

What are some of your favourite things?

Mission: Save PS4 From Getting Wet!!!

Yesterday was the day I was joined with my glacier while Playstation 4. I was excited since I've always wanted one and it came with Destiny, which seemed like such an epic game.

My local Game Stop opened early for those who pre-ordered the Destiny bundle. Of course, I went there before work and found other eager players collecting their brand new baby. Many of them, like me, had to go to school or work and we felt each other's pain...

Needless to say, the whole day at work was excruciating. I kept wistfully glancing at my PS4, burning to play!

Alas, the day had somehow passed and I made my merry way home. Except, half way there (I commute on foot, takes abut 20 - 30 minutes) it started to rain.

ng483_rain
This isn't even close to how heavy it rained...
What the.... Don't you dare get my baby wet! Curse you rain! *insert various swear words here*

My main prerogative was to protect the PS4. Luckily it was in a plastic bag, which prevented damage. I also thank God that I had an umbrella. You should have seen me, hugging the PS4 and holding the umbrella over it. Oh I got drenched. Didn't even try to avoid the puddles, I happily waded through deep water as it was the quickest way to the next tram stop.

How dare the rain touch the box...
I noticed people looking at me, then at the PS4, then back at me. They all gave me that knowing look, and it was evident from their expressions that they felt what I was feeling - utter pain and dismay. I could feel their silent prayers, wishing me save passage.

It didn't just rain, it poured. It's as if I had already started playing a game, and my mission was to safely transport the PS4 home.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

The relief I felt was immense. My body was all tense. I couldn't even eat, that's how worked up I was (yes... maybe you've noticed that I get a little over excited about things I'm passionate about...). I was somewhat panting for crying out loud, panting (and not cause I'm unfit, I go jogging, I can run...)! Gosh I'm a weirdo at times... ^^;;

Do you have a PS4, or any other console? If so, what was the most traumatic experience you've had with it?
 

May the force be with you!!!

Rekindling my Passion #03 - Gaming

So the move went well, though it was rough since I had a fever... What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? I think I just leveled up again... ^__^

I had purchased a TV just before I found out that I'd have to move again, so I never bothered taking it out of the box. I was burning to play video games, on my Playstation 3, but I waited since I didn't want to risk damaging the TV, or maybe, honestly speaking I just wasn't ready to play? Seems like an odd thing to say, but maybe that was the real reason I didn't unpack the tv...

Because you know, I used to have a problem with not taking care of myself whilst playing... You can read about it here. Perhaps that was the reason I haven't played seriously for ages. Now I need to catch up! ^__^

Anyway...

Last weekend finally the TV came out! The first thing I did was attach the PS3 and started playing Kingdom Hearts 1.5.

ng447_Kingdom_Hearts_1.5
Limited edition! It's beautiful.... *__* I am looking forward to finish playing it. ^^
It was super exciting. The whole time I had a massive grin on my face (reason I don't like anyone seeing me doing my favourite things, since I feel I just look too goofy being all overexcited haha...)

ng480_Kingdom_Hearts_1.5
I don't have a TV table yet, in fact, I'm still missing lots of furniture lol! I ordered the essentials from Ikea, and they shall arrive on Saturday!!! Yay!!! ^__^
I opted for the Final Mix: Proud difficulty setting, and I feel that it is more difficult than expert mode on the original version. It's a challenge, and sometimes I get frustrated, but I enjoy the game so much, so it's all the more rewarding when I beat a boss on that difficulty setting.

I'm excited for Kingdom Hearts 2.5's release. But most of all...

WHERE THE HELL IS KINDOM HEARTS 3????

I've only been waiting forever.... And if I must, I'll wait some more! ^__^

This week is going to be a busy week, since tomorrow I'll be collecting my PS4 Destiny bundle, and well, I'm gonna play Destiny so... If you have trouble contacting me, that's probably the reason... Haha. I don't even know if I'll like the game, but I'm pretty sure I will. It looks cool!

What games do you like to play? Can you recommend some to me?

Have a wonderful Monday!!!
