March Doki Doki Crate

March Doki Doki Crate – Unboxed

It’s always a good day when I get mail, but I am super excited that my March Doki Doki Crate has finally arrived! Every month it’s always so fun to unpack my little crate and see what they chose to send out this month! Every month has an adorable theme, and this month’s crate was VERY unicorn esque. I will never tire of the unicorn trend, like, ever. Not sorry about it.

Each month comes packed in a super cute hot pink box, with lots of goodies and a tiny little magazine inside. Each month is $35, including all the shipping and handling for the crate and you get tons of goodies straight from Japan to your doorstep. Score!

I’m debating about trying a new kawaii/cute/Japan type crate each month just to see what the differences are between each box. I want to seriously find the best one that’s out there! If this is something you’d like me to try out, let me know in the comments below.

Let’s get the March Doki Doki crate unboxed!

The first thing that I pulled out of this month’s crate was the cutest little zippered case with My Melody on it! This is going to be perfect for stashing tons of bobby pins and hair clips in for when I’m at conventions, and some phone cords the rest of the time!

This month also came with the softest little unicorn plush! Seriously, its the cutest and I love all the little details, like the blush and the pearls. Like I said, I’m not getting tired of the unicorn trend anytime soon, and I really love the addition that this little guy brings to my desk. So. Cute.

As someone with thick curls, I don’t really ever use hairbrushes, but this little brush will be perfect in my bag for conventions for brushing out wigs and keeping the tangles at bay! It even has a little charm that dangles off the side, seriously, the sweetest.

I found this item to be a little on the confusing side, as its labeled as a hook for a stroller, but I’m sure that I will be able to find about a thousand uses for this little hook! I love My Melody, so I hope I can find a spot for this where everyone can see how cute it really is!

The last item that I received this month are these tiny little nail clippers! I really love getting functional items because I’d rather get useful things, so this is awesome! I’m going to keep these in my bag, because who knows when you’d need them. Plus, they really are super cute! Win!

Do you have any subscription boxes you can’t live without? I’m looking for new boxes to try out, so share in the comments below! Extra points if they’re cutesy!

Enamel Pins Galore – My Collection

If theres one thing that I buy way too much of, its definitely enamel pins. They come in just about any design you could possibly want, and another plus.. many have glitter paints and designs to make them especially cute. Over the last year or so it seems that I’ve built up a tiny collection, and I felt like it was time to share! This excludes my Walt Disney World trading pins (those deserve their own post!) but many of these came from local markets or conventions that I attend. Plus, they’re great little pieces that help to support local designers and small shops.

How To Wear Enamel Pins

This is where the fun really begins! There are tons of fun ways to either display or wear your pins, so you can share the happiness with everyone! Personally, I keep mine on display in my apartment, but here are a ton of fun ways to display or wear your pins!

  • Wear them on a lanyard (use these locking backs to keep them safe!)
  • Wear them on your shirt collar
  • Wear them on a cardigan to add extra color
  • Pin them to a hat or scarf
  • Pin them to your backpack (again, locking backs please!)
  • Display them on a banner

My Enamel Pin Collection

a little palmful of happiness

I tend to gravitate towards pastel, cutesy kinds of pins (you’ll see that shortly) which makes them all sort of blend together in a nice aesthetic heap.

Kittynaut Enamel Pins

Cute ghibli goodness

My all time favorite spot to get pins is from Kittynaut’s Etsy shop. I’m lucky that they are frequently at cons in my area (hooray!) so I tend to pick up a few pins every time that I see them. They are some of the sweetest people and always put a smile on my face when I see them at conventions.

The above pins are:

Cute, pastel, and sassy. Pretty much me.

A local shop that I love sells these pins made by Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes! They make some of the snarkiest and cutest pins out there, with tons of kick butt sayings and cute colors and glitter! I love anything with snark, and these are about as perfect as they come.
