A totally random un-boxing | Gacha Gacha Crate

We I subscribed to Doki Doki Crate I used a promotion to a Gacha Gacha Crate by Japan Crate for free.

I was curious to see what little things would come in it, and man is it interesting.

Gacha Gacha Crate comes with 6 Gachapon from Japan and retails for $28 a month. From their site it looks like they have sent some really cute figures in the past.

Let’s see what my Gachapon are!

Ball #1

My first Gachapon is an inflatable travel pillow that looks like a croissant. I don’t own a travel pillow is this is actually pretty useful, and it makes me giggle.

Ball #2

My second Gachapon is a cute sushi keychain! I love sushi, so this makes my heart happy.

And you can squeeze it and the center pops out! Great for my fidgety self. On my keys it goes!

Ball # 3

My third Gachapon is the cute little animal tapestry! I have no idea what it says, but I will definitely be displaying it.

Ball # 3

My third Gachapon is this cute little unicorn. It came in just a long strand and I had to twist it into the correct shape, which was nice and relax. She is very cute and needs a name.

Ball # 4

My fifth Gachapon is this little fishing game. I remember playing this game (in a larger size) as a kid. Though this is super cute, I am going to gift it to a younger cousin, as she will get more use out of it than I will.

Ball #6 The final Gachapon

My last Gachapon is this precious like cat figurine with a stereo. I will be displaying him on my shelf that holds my other little figures.

Over all thoughts?

This was a super fun box to unbox, but I will not be subscribing. However, if you wish to you can use the code GACHA3 for $3 off your first crate! *not an affiliate code*

Doki Doki Crate | September 2019

I have a new to me box for your guys today. The Doki Doki crate from Japan crate! I love Japanese culture and have really missed getting a Kawaii themed box. After much contemplation, it appeared that the Doki Doki Crate was the best option!

If you are interested, the box is around $35 a month, but if you sign up for a longer subscription the price drops. Personally, I think the price is worth it for how many Sanrio and San-X characters they appear to include.

If you guys are curious to see all the cute goodies, keep reading!

Summikko Gurashi Roll Pen Case

I am going to be using this pen case for makeup brushes when I travel. It is super cute and very nicely made! I love that it has a slight sailor theme to it. Will mesh with my Pusheen box items nicely.

Sweets Pen

There were a few different variations of the pen that you could have gotten. I got the Koala March one. Which is fine by me! They are delicious and it writes in green!

Sumikko Gurashi Water Bottle.

There were two different variations of this water bottle. I would have preferred the pink one, however the blue one is still super cute and the design is precious. I have already been getting a ton of use out of it.

Rilakkuma Pass Case

I do not have any sort of pass to place in this unfortunately, because I live in the middle of no where Missouri and like an hour away from St. Louis, where the nearest metro link is.

However, Rilakkuma’s cute head has made a nice key chain addition to my bag!

Little Twin Stars Letter Set

I love letter sets, I always send out notes with my Mercari packages. I really love little twin stars though, so I may save this letter set for special occasions.

That is it for my September Doki Doki Crate, and I am in love. I am really excited to see what comes in the October Box.

What is your favorite Sanrio or San-X Character?

Pusheen Box | Summer 2019

I can’t explain how excited I am about this box!

The Pusheen Box is a quarterly subscription service for $45 a quarter. It is a box filled with Pusheen goodies!

This box is the Summer box, and it is sailor themed and super cute!

The boxes contain a ton of products that you can only get in the boxes, as well as some that you can buy else where.

Pusheen Salad Container

This set comes with the container, a fork, and a little dressing container. I have already used it for lunch at work sense opening the box, worked out great!

Pusheen Sailor Bandana

This bandana is precious! I like to wear bandanas folded up then tied around like a head band. This bandana will be super cute for that purpose!

I tried to get Carl to wear it, but he would not.

Pusheen To Do List

This note pad is magnetized on the back. Perfect to put on the refrigerator.

There is a little picture of Pusheen, Stormy, and Pip in a sail boat on the bottom of the pages!

Pusheen Mini Flask

I do not drink alcohol anymore, so I am not sure what I will put in this flask, maybe a shot of juice? It is super precious none the less!

Pusheen Picture Holder

This is one of those picture stands with a clip on the back. Right now I am using it to display the little card that came in the box!

Pusheen Can Coozies pack of two

Both of the coozies are adorable! I will use them to hold plastic water bottles or cans or soda or something of the sort! I really like that there are two, that way Coty has one he can use as well!

Pusheen Pool Float

This is just… I can’t! It’s so cute!!! I have seen it blown up on YouTube and it is actually a good size for an adult. My parents have a pool and a condo at the lake, so I will have plenty of opportunities to use it!

Pusheen Vinyl Figure

Every box comes with an exclusive vinyl figure. This seasons is little sailor Pusheen looking through a telescope! I didn’t want to take it out of the box, so I tried my best to get a picture.

Pusheen Long Steve Shirt XL

This shirt is so stinking cute and I am so happy to have it! I don’t care that it is strange to have a long sleeve shirt in a summer box, it’s adorable!

Here it is on! I love it so much!

Over all thoughts?

This box is the best thing I have ever spent my money on. I am so excited for the boxes to come. If you love Pusheen, I highly recommend subscribing!

A few recent empties! | Cruelty Free (besides a BBW shower gel)

Hello my loveys!

I apologize for my lack of posting. I had surgery on my uterus, and the healing has been a struggle! Lucky for you guys, I had my significant other grab a few products from my empties bag and I took the pictures in bed!

If you are interested in looking at more of my trash and hearing my thoughts, read on!

Bath and Body Works Love and Sunshine Shower Gel

Please note, BBW is NOT cruelty free, they test where required by law!!

I was given this shower gel as a gift. It smells nice, the scent lingered and made my skin feel nice.

Repurchase? No, it is not CF.

Fortune Coolie Soap Eat Me Deep Conditioner. Deluxe sample

I really love the FCS deep conditioner formula. This scent wasn’t my favorite, but it did its job well.

Repurchase? Yes! Just a different scent

Mantra Hemp CBD Anti-aging Sheet Mask

This mask made my skin feel super soft and soothed.

Repurchase? Yes, once I get through some of my other masks. I have like a store full!

Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Melting Balm

This Balm is fantastic, however it is rather pricy.

Repurchase? Maybe, if I can’t find a less expensive option I like just as much.

Physicians Formula Brow Gel

I think I have gone through two of these. It is a really nice brow gel and it does have a tint to it. It’s really nice for a quick and easy no makeup brow.

Repurchase? Yes! Physicians Formula always has sales going on at at least one of the drugstores near me, and the lower price is worth it.

Jordana Best Lash Extreme

This is a super inexpensive mascara that is definitely worth all the hype that it gets. It really gives my lashes that full, false lash look.

Repurchase? Yes, always.

That is it for this tiny empty post!

What is a product that you have used up recently?

Kyut Beauty Box | July 2019

I have a new un-boxing for this month!

The Kyut beauty box is a cruelty free and vegan beauty box is $24.90 monthly. You can also purchase a one time mystery box for $19.00. I am very interested in this whole mystery box thing!

I am very excited about this box, so let’s tear right into it.

Zion Health Beauty Balm $29.99

Our first product is an anti-aging sunscreen with SPF 30. This product is also meant to enhance and brighten your skin tone. This sunscreen is paraben, gluten, aluminum, and sulfate free. SPF is very important, so I am very happy with this product.

Phase Zero Makeup Coconut Liquid Eyeshadow “Lucky Penny” $22.50

I have started getting in to liquid/cream eyeshadow, which is really strange for me! Lucky Penny is a pretty shade, it would look great all over the lid.

Zabana Essentials Sea Salt Wavy Hair Shimmer Spray $15.95

This shimmer spray looks so cute and fun! I will definitely use it for trips this summer.

Root Pretty Pretty Balm “Campbell” $10

I have heard amazing things about the brand Root Pretty, and I have been dying to try some of their products. I suppose a tinted balm is a good place to start. The shade will give a beautiful bitten look to my lips!

Bonus Item: Beach Anklet By Kyut Box

I love ankle bracelets! Unfortunately, I have bad reactions to nickel, so hopefully I am able to wear this anklet. I love how simple and dainty it is.

Over all thoughts?

I love this months Box! Not one dud, and I can feel safe knowing that no animal testing is involved with the products. I can’t wait to see what the next box brings!

What is your favorite Cruelty Free subscription box?

Ipsy Un-Bagging | July 2019

It’s Sunday night, we all have work tomorrow. So I figured it would be nice to throw up a simple un-bagging while I do a face mask!

I am currently using the Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Peel off mask. Mainly for my T zone where I have been having some breakouts.

I highly recommend this mask, and you can always get Yes to products on sale at Ulta!

Now, for the reason you are reading this, my July Ipsy bag!

The bag itself.

I think this months Bag is so cute and fun. Perfect for July! I may make this the makeup bag that I keep in my purse.

But, the contents of the bag is the most exciting part!

Laritzy Cosmetics Dew Pot In Utopia

I really enjoy all the products I have gotten from Laritzy in the past, but I am a little hesitant about this one.

I am not sure it will work for my skin tone. However, I am willing to give it a try as a highlight. But, I will probably end up using it as a Cream shadow. It looks like a really pretty kid shade.

CiatΓ© London Watermelon Burst Hydrating Primer

I have been very curious about this primer. The dissolving black beads, meant to look like seeds, is an interesting concept to me.

I do plan to review this product, since it does have me so intrigued.

FEEL Mindful Pali Santo Soothing Mask

I really enjoy soothing masks in the summer time. My skin tends to break out and develop rashes much easier in the summer. However, the same also occurs in the winter when the air is dry. This Is a nice sized deluxe sample, I am sure I will get a use or two out of it!

Pacifica Bronzer and Blush Duo Bronzed Rose

Apparently this duo was made just for Ipsy, which is neat! I have another Pacifica Blush and bronzer duo that I really enjoy. It actually lives in my makeup collection at my boyfriends house.

The blush is a pretty shimmery rose, with a warm matte bronzer. I have to say, Pacifica makes amazing products!

TheBalm Single Shadow in The Run Down

I like getting these little samples of the balm shadows in my Ipsy. They are always great quality, and since the packaging is so cute I do tend to reach for them.

This is a plumy grey that can be used as a shadow or liner, which is handy when traveling. The formula is very buttery and I have tried it on my eyes. It is easy to blend and made for a beautiful smoky eye.

The Add Ons

This month I only did two ads ons.

Billion Dollar Brows Brow Brush $3-6 as an add on, I can’t remember.

My Anastasia Brow Brush is really beat up, so I was in need of a new brush. I couldn’t pass up the price on this one. I have tried other brushes from this brand that are great quality. The brush is a bit more thick than I prefer, but I am sure I can make it work.

It Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara $12 as an add on.

If you saw my Glam Bag Plus In-boxing, then you know that I also got this mascara in the box.

This is my holy grail mascara, I just could not pass it up at such a great price! This one is now my back up, as I have already cracked open the one from my GBP.

Over all thoughts

I am super happy with my bag this month!

I got some handy products and one that I have been curious about! The only dud may be the dew Pot, but who knows I may end up loving it!

What was in your Ipsy bag this month?

6 Recent Empties | Look at my Trash!

I have started saving all my empty beauty products in a bag. That way I can pull someone and review a few at a time.

Yes to Ying Yang Paper Mask

I love Yes To skin care, specifically their detox paper mask . I decided to try a new one this time. This mask is meant to be detoxifying and hydrating. Honestly, it seem just like the detox mask I love and was only $2.50

Would I repurchase? Sure, it’s essentially just the detox mask with a cute design.

Beauty Blender in Black

Look at my nasty sponge. I have been using this for like a year and figured it was time to move on.

What are your favorite alternatives to the original beauty blended? $20 is steep for a sponge, but I have yet to find a replacement.

Repurchase? Unfortunately, yes.

Fortune Cookie Soap Rebel Princess Restorative hair Mask

I love this stuff! It smells amazing and works wonders. I actually am currently using another one of their hair masks.

I am hardcore considering resubbing to their box.

Repurchase? I am not sure if I can still get this scent, but I will purchase the product again!

Lush Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly

The product itself is cute and smells great. The scent is long lasting on the skin.

However, I don’t like the whole jelly thing. I thought I would love it, but it just seems like a inconvenience.

Repurchase? No. But, if Lush has the scent in a regular shower gel over the Holidays, I would purchase that.

It Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara

This is my favorite mascara! It makes my lashes look fake! I hate wearing false lashes, so this mascara is a great alternative.

Repurchase? Always!!

The Ordinary High Adherence Silicon Primer

I purchased this primer a while ago when it was still being hyped up online.

I was not impressed, as far as living up to the hype goes. However, it is a good primer for the small price tag. I prefer it more than say the ELF or Wet N Wild ones.

Repurchase? No. I have enough primers that I actually love.

Those are a few of the beauty that I finished up recently. What are your thoughts on these products?
