Neko Astume Game Review x CuteZine!

Hello! Welcome to an actual proper blog of me blogging with words!

In this real blog I will be talking about the very popular app game Neko Atsume!

I downloaded this game a while ago but only recently started playing it (as with most games) I didn't think I would enjoy it at first but it was definitely a nice surprise once I got used to it.
So the whole point of this game is to attract adorable kitties to your yard using items that are super tempting to cats. Such as pillows, boxes, FOOD and various other toys and things. Once you have scattered your yard with cat paraphernalia (had to google that word) you pretty much just have to wait until a cat visits your yard.....then you take a photo of it and add it to your cat album.
It sounds a little boring and yeah its not super in-depth but it is interesting and the cats are so darned cute that it does get a little addictive. The concept kind of reminds me a little of bird watching or nature hunts, where you find and log information about your subject.

There is already quite a widespread following and helpful blogs (unlike this one) that tell you lots of information that enhances the game play.
This blog --> How to Play Neko Atsume was very helpful for me, especially the part on how to get more gold and silver Anchovies! (the in game currency which allows you to get awesome items)

I hope that this game keeps getting adorable add ons and extra features in the future.

CuteZine x Kawaii Box - October 2015 Review

CuteZine x Kawaii Box Review

Hello! This is my review of the cute and awesome Kawaii box October edition! 
At least I'm pretty sure it's the October box....anyway let's get started! 

In this kawaii box there are a lot of very cute things! 
Here is the run-down.. 11 items.

1x Flan Rabbit plush pencil case
1x Unchi lolly-pop
1x Jewellery seal sticker set
1x Nuo Ying Nail Art flakes
1x Cute Sticker sheet with farm animals
1x Nora Kokkok Roller Stamp set
1x Sushi gummy lollies
1x Neko cat coin purse
1x Green family coin purse
1x Set of 5 - pink elephant envelopes
1x Lolly pop pen
Lots of useful things in this edition. A nice range of stationary and candies. I especially love the rabbit pencil case and the neko coin purse, very useful items, great for school and to keep bits and bobs in.  I like the addition of the envelopes, they always come in handy as I am always looking for envelopes for presents such gift cards and jewellery ^_^

The stamps come with a highlighter pink ink. There 3 stamps with images that say 'very good', 'study' and 'ok' messages. There are also two roller stamps. One with 'have a nice day' and a speech bubble and the other with little pictures of animals. The green purse is great for storing the set once it has been opened.

Overall it is very good value for money and there are some great items, another awesome job from the kawaii people at kawaii box.

Japan Candy Box is a monthly subscription service that sends you a mystery box of Japanese sweets and snacks!
To give you an idea of the kind of goodies they provide, here is a little review of the June Candy box!
I really enjoyed the candy box, there was a lot of different things and candy that I had never tried before, which was awesome. I especially enjoyed the pokemon pretzels, they were very tasty indeed.
I had lots of fun with the DIY kit, I moulded a panda and my 4 year old daughter made a worm ^_^ She also enjoyed all the candy and really liked the Lotte Koala March Biscuits!
I recommend the Japan Candy Box as it is good value and a good range of products for a reasonable price!

CuteZine x Nonbiri Neko Rilakkuma

So in love with the latest Rilakkuma series 'Nonbiri Neko Rilakkuma' there are so many awesome items in this range its hard to decide what to buy first!

The best place to buy these cuties from (if you are based in NZ) is probably Tokyo Otaku Mode.
I have bought lots of items from here before as the shipping is reasonable and surprisingly fast!

Links after the photos!

All the Goodies! 


CuteZine x NEW Emoji! Burritos and Tacos and Unicorns...OH MY!

Emojis are a daily form of communication for many smartphone users. The emoji list of icons is constantly being added to, almost as fast as the growing list of requests.

In the lastest update - Unicode 8, some very popular images are introduced. To see the full list click here...Unicode8

So glad to finally have a taco and a unicorn! Be prepared for some spam unicorn messages and spam taco! Because unicorn and because taco....

In the next-next update, Unicode9 there are many interesting candidates, my personal favourite being the face palm, which I will most likely be using on a regular basis.

CuteZine x Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Cover Plates - New Nintendo DS!

Here are my brand new, super kawaii cover plates for my New New Nintendo DS!
I love my kawaii tech-cessory, so awesome!

I bought this item from Nippon-Yasan.com. Shipping was very reasonable, I think it was around $8 - $10 to ship to NZ. The plates price was very good too, it worked out to be around $31 NZD all up, which is what I would have paid anyway, buying plates from an online store in NZ.
