I thought it’d probably be super lame to have ANOTHER post where I declare myself alive after a pause in updates, but gosh you guys I’m just so alive! In the past, I’ve posted slowly or taken breaks because Lyme Disease just kicks me too hard (read more about that here), but THIS time I’ve been taking a break because I’ve had SIGNIFICANT improvement.

I’m out doing a lot of things I’ve wanted to do for a long time ^_^

Hey guys, I haven’t been feeling so hot lately. In my last update I was doing rather well, but now my meds are different and stronger, so I’ve been weak and in pain again. With the meds I take, that’s a good thing because it will kill the Lyme, but because of feeling crappy I’ve had to scale back again and make sacrifices. Fewer game nights, more lying in bed watching K-Dramas, more kitty snuggles, slower blog posts. It sucks you know?

But here’s some good news, and it came at such a perfect time because I had been feeling like butts.

You probably already know I created a community on reddit (/r/asianbeauty), heck maybe you’re even a part of it. Usually we chit-chat about different skincare and makeup we love, and talk about products we bought or what we want to buy. I mentioned that I wanted to try the Skin79 Snail BB Cream, and a fellow redditor offered to send me some samples. I asked if she’d like me to send her anything, and she was like: No man, I’m good. What a sweetheart <3   Well, I had forgotten all about it, what with everything going on.   And then MAGICALLY this package with a lovely thank you card appeared in my mailbox:

It’s been a while everyone! Normally if I don’t post it’s because I’m too sick, but this month I’ve been helping organize for a local gaming group (The Vermont Gaming Community). All April long we’ve had Boardgame nights on Thursdays from 5-11pm, and it’s a lot of work, so I had to set aside blogging for a bit until I regained the balance. It’s starting to get simpler to set up and I can get back to writing ^_^ Thanks to Lyme I have to pick and choose between goals, but I’m glad that I get to do this and work with people in the community!

Okay, I know it’s April, but this is so cool, I’m still going to share it with ya!

Guys, you’re probably thinking: “What the heck is Influenster?” I found it because a fellow blogger posted that they got a box of new products through Influenster and it looked like it was full of awesome. Influenster is an invitation-only social media site, they have partnerships with different brands, and they provide an environment for reviews and also to promote brands.

One thing they are becoming known for is their “VoxBox” program, where they send members who qualify a box full of products from some of their brand partners. At first, I thought this site was going to be gimmick hell, and I didn’t sign up right away. But after seeing my friend (a small blogger!) was still able to get a Voxbox I did join the site. I found it easy to navigate, and fun to use. I even posted a couple of mini-reviews and read some reviews posted by other members.

Okay, you guys totally know I’m obsessed with cute things, right? And if you ask me, Sanrio makes the cutest of the cute. Hello Kitty, naturally being one of my faves, has been all over the place lately. Usually I can’t find anything outside of little girl’s departments but recently I found a lot of Hello Kitty at Michael’s (which is a craft store). How bizarre, right?? Check out what I found!!

Image is a photo of a pale hand with a hello kitty temporary tattoo. The image has words and heart shapes added. The words read: Hello Cutie
I wore this on Valentine’s day.
It’s a temporary tattoo I got in a pack of Valentine’s day cards that were on sale!

Image is a photo of a pink gred and white box housing four adorable hello kitty 10oz glasses each one is a different design. The image has words added that read: Cute glass set
Aren’t these glasses awesome?
Only sucky thing is the pictures are not dishwasher safe >_<     Image is a photo of the back of the hello kitty 10oz glasses box. It is pink red and white with a strawberry theme and polka dots in white. The back shows a picture of each of the glass's images. There is text added to the photo that reads: Back of box
The back of the box!
It’s too cute not to show you, plus it has a good photo of all the glass’ designs

Image is a photo of a haul of many items from Michael's craft store. Included are a hello kitty journal in pink, a white journal with a heart and crown that has love written on it, a black space invaders beanie with multi-colored space invaders, two spools of ribbon: one is brown with pink heart outlines and one is pink with silver hello kitty faces, a pink pack of hello kitty crayons in cute colors, a pink pack of hello kitty playing cards, two packs of hello kitty cotton candy: one blue one pink, a set of hello kitty stickers, a pack of flower and mint colored gift labels, and 3 sets of 6 black space invaders pins with different colors on them. Text added to the picture reads: ok, not hello kitty but still cool. Items that are not hello kitty are marked.
I can’t believe Michael’s Craft store had so much awesome stuff!

  • 2 Journals, one white with heart and crown, and one Pink HK one
  • 2 HK cotton candy, one blue one pink (gave one as a gift)
  • Space Invader beanie (gifted). Did you ever play this game? It was so good back in the day)
  • 2 Ribbon spools, one is brown with pink heart outlines, one is pink with silver HK faces
  • HK crayon set (gifted) with cute color crayons.
  • HK playing cards. These are so cute you guys, they’re pink cards!
  • Non-HK cute gift labels, mint and white with pink flowers
  • HK stickers (gifted), these are nice glittery gold ones. Each one is different!
  • Space Invader pins (3 sets of 6) I used these to identify leaders during a game event I ran last month. We had a PC LAN, board games (dozens!!), PS3, 360, WII, Magic the Gathering, Pokemon Card Game, and lots of food! About 70 people came so I had to keep it organized ^_^


Image is loaded with the same items as the last, but this time only the hello kitty items are in it.
This is everything from the first picture that is HK only. See how cute? I feel so lucky!

What’s your favorite item from the haul?
Do you have any of these?
Do you like Sanrio characters? If so, who’s your favorite?
