Disneyland Paris at Christmas...♡

Hello everyone! ♪( ´▽`)

For this month’s blog post, I wanted to talk about my recent trip to Paris Disneyland ♡
Unlike the other times I’ve visited, this year I was able to meet a lot more cast members, and take some adorably festive photos... :>
Although it was cold, visiting in December was worth it for the beautiful decorations and special events taking place, such as Mickey’s 90th birthday & the Christmas Tree Lights!

Thumper with his lovely tartan bow tie!~
The light show for Mickey’s birthday was so so beautiful~ The lights created a beautiful rainbow across the tree, but there were also some pretty fireworks! (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)
You also didn't have to stay too close to see the show; as you can see from my pictures, I was pretty far away and could still hear and see the different moments in this show~

Purple hues & blue strobe lights...

The gorgeous rainbow lights!
The lighting of the Christmas tree is another must-see for your trip; Minnie and Mickey sing different carols before a beautiful light show on the centre tree, featuring different colours and effects! If you can, I’d really recommend seeing this show, it was so special and cute ^-^ the show was in both English and French, so it was understandable for most of the audience! It really felt like they had checked that every detail was perfect.

Rainbow lights...
In comparison to the tree in the DLP hotel, this one has a lot more detail and colours..♡
It's also a bit bigger too! In fact, it blocks the view of the castle from the hotel XD

Brilliant blue ♪
However, my favourite thing about the trip was meeting the different characters in their festive costumes!
Most importantly, seeing Thumper (for the first time!) in person. Thumper is my all time favourite Disney character, and he was so funny and cute!♡
I didn't know you could even meet him outside of easter time, so this was a lovely surprise ^o^

I took a lot of pictures with him, but these were my favourites~ 
He also chewed on some candy canes while waiting for his picture to be taken, so cute!♡

I'm not sure if this photo shows how happy I was TuT~
Here are some (blurry!) pictures of Tiana and Belle's christmas outfits! They looked so beautiful and happy, I loved this part of the parade ♡
As well as all the main princesses, the parade also showcased the gorgeous outfits of the main characters!~ Although it was very quick, so I couldn't take good photos.. TuT

There were so many cute and delicious sweet treats at DLP this christmas!~
Although there were many pastries, cakes and desserts, my favourite has to be the hot chocolate; It has whipped cream, marshmallows and christmas tree sweets!♡ 

It was so tasty !
While waiting for my sister in Frontier Land, I had this delicious nutella crepe with a hot chocolate!
I really recommend it, especially when it's cold and you don't want to go on scary rides ♡ 

Even the crepe packaging was cute~

Overall, Christmas at DLP was an unforgettable experience, and if you're thinking about going there, I'd recommend christmas over almost any other time~ 
From the carols played throughout the park, to the adorable costumes, this has to be one of the most festive and cheerful places to stay at during the holidays~
as always, thank you for reading, and I'll see you in the next post!♡

♡Liz Lisa x My Melody 2018 | Unboxing & Review ♡

Hello everyone!  (´ ᴗ`✿)~
This month’s blog post is about something I’m so happy about, the Liz Lisa 2018 my melody collection! I decided to purchase the classic size pink dress and my melody key ring, since the idea of matching with my melody was too cute to pass up (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)~♡

Liz lisa x my melody 2018 collab dress in pink...
The adorable LL x My Melo keychain~

As is custom when you spend over ¥4000 on the TokyoKawaiiLife website, they give you a complementary shopping bag. There’s not much to say about these, other than they’re pretty cute and good for storage ^o^ When travelling, i love using these to carry my dresses ♡

I also really love the my melody keyring! Her dress is surprisingly well detailed. She has little wings on her back and a flower crown, as well as adorable heart shaped blush on her cheeks~♡ She has short, instead of long, sleeves, and lace detailing. Her dress is also a slightly darker pink. The keyring also has a faux leather heart with gold font of the LL logo, and a little ribbon, adding a more sophisticated touch to the keyring ♡

My melody x Liz lisa 2018 keyring..

Close up of the blush details...

I don’t think I can really say anything negative about my melody ♡ Every time a company releases anything remotely my melo related I will undoubtedly love it, and this is a problem. But this my melody is especially cute; the love theme with roses and Cupid wings is just so romantic and girly~

Angel wings...
Heart detailing 
The main reason I really wanted this dress was because of the adorable sailor style collar, Cupid my melody theme, pastel pink gingham, and the long sleeves- what’s not to love? ♡

Front collar details..
The back 

When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by how layered the skirt is! Additionally, the material for the sleeves LL use is super comfortable, and allows a lot of room for movement.

One thing i did notice is that the bust room, compared to some other LL dresses, is significantly less. This is most probably due to the lack of shirring in the back. I have a small chest and theres usually lots of room in the bust of LL dresses, but here theres not that much extra.

closeup of the bottom of the dress 

The details on this dress are just gorgeous. Roses, ribbons, lace and (violets?) adorn the bottom of the dress, with cupid my melody outlines all over the print. There's also this lovely gingham design..♡ The ribbons say my melody and liz lisa for each one, which was a really cute touch ^-^

Another print closeup..
As expected, i really, really love this collection... ♡ I hope this was informative to anyone else considering purchasing this collab, and as always thank you for reading! ^-^

A day in Hong Kong ♡

Hello everyone!~ ☆♪

For this month’s blog post, I thought I’d share some of my favourite things I did in the busy city of Hong Kong (*·ω·)ノ
I was overwhelmed by how bright and beautiful this city was; there were so many things to see and do, so writing about just one day is difficult!

The first part of my day was breakfast at the hotel, which for me was tasty pastries and fruit~♪ (*'ω'*) I especially liked the cherry pastry pictured, it was so delicious and fresh- also the fruits were somehow seasoned and tasted really good?

 ♡Breakfast at my hotel♡
Next, I took the tube to get to the causeway Bay Area! The tubes are air conditioned which I really appreciated in the hot weather, and there was one of my fav chain stores in almost all the main stations, 711! (* ́꒳`*)

I arrived at my destination, one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve seen in Hong Kong, and probably my life, the Peninsula, a hotel located in Tsim Sha Tsui. ♡ There was a violinist/pianist playing ‘Moon river’ and similar songs, I truly felt like I was in an old Hollywood movie (  ̆ω ̆ )

This place is definitely pricey, but you really feel like a prince/princess here! And the food looks like art.♡♪ There are many beautiful places to take pictures and to look at here, its so beautiful~ T^T

And here’s a look at some of the menu..
Even the menu is so pretty...

I also visited the bathrooms here, Which had a vanity area with perfume you can put on & hairspray!! (゚ω゚) ♪ The vanity area had a comfy little stool, and I felt very fancy applying the perfume which you can see here ^^'~

After afternoon tea, we walked around the area and then took the tube to Causeway Bay ♡ On the way to laforet mall, I saw a golden rilakkuma (as part of a jewellery line!) Σ੧(❛□❛✿) Rilakkuma is one of my favourite characters, but I'm not sure I'd be willing to spend that much on him ww XD

I had lunch in the Laforet mall, in Itacho sushi ♪ they serve authentic Japanese sushi, and have a wide variety of options to choose from- I've noticed a lot of restaurants do this, but they served us complementary tea too which was really sweet (pictured here) and the service was amazing ^^

 The foods they serve was not only delicious but surprisingly cheap? They had great veggie options! I’d really recommend them (=^ェ^=)

Laforet had beautiful clothing, and cute homeware/ general goods stores! My favourites were a Disney store, a cat themed store (with meowing music XD) and if you got an octopus card (tube pass) the gacha! ~♪ (you can only use it with the pass tho :,o )
The other mall I visited, also in causeway bay, was Hysan place! ♡ This one was way bigger than any mall I have ever been to, and sold cute stationary, books, food, character goods, and more!~♪

Me and the lovely choco :>

I mainly went there for the Line friends store, as we don’t have any line merchandise available in the UK; it was so cute~!! ♪ *\(^o^)/* They sell foods, homeware and clothes of the characters, such as the water bottles pictured below ^^

As you might have guessed, Cony is my favourite character, as she’s a bunny & has many comical expressions XD ~ ♡

I visited a Starbucks on the way back to the hotel for dinner!♡ ^-^ While I didn’t get a picture, I just had another iced tea XD

Finally, we had dinner at our hotel~♪ I was happy to see they had a chocolate crumble, and a really tasty veggie sandwich on the menu ∩^ω^∩

Thank you so much for reading my post!

I also wanted to say a huge thank you for putting up with my 2 month break, I've had a lot of study work recently, but now things are under control I'll be writing more, and finishing my Japan trip drafts finally! ^o^

Visiting a Hedgehog Café! / Kyoto travels #1

♪ Hello everyone! ♪
While I was staying in Kyoto, I had the opportunity to visit a Hedgehog Café, named 'Toms Mr Hedgie’ (・ω・)ノ This was of course an extremely cute and fascinating moment, so I thought that I would dedicate a blog post to talking about this place & questions that you might have, as the 1st part of my new 'Kyoto travels' miniseries! ♪( ^-^)/★,。・:・゚

Our assigned Hog!
 ★ So what is a hedgehog café?
The purpose of Hedgehog cafés, or rather any animal café you can find, is for you to pay to spend time with either one or all of the animals (´∀`●)

Not all will serve food and drinks, but in some animal café you will have to buy something in exchange for being there. In this café, they actually didn't sell any food/drink, just for the hedgehogs! (although this is unusual, but probably because Hedgehogs are a bit rarer than say, a dog or a cat, and maybe keeping drinks or food near them is dangerous ~♪)

One of the little cuties in a tube ^^

What happens when you go there?
As soon as you walk upstairs to the entrance to the café, you will be asked to take your shoes off & wear slippers~ you then choose how long you want to spend with your hedgehog (I chose 30 minutes!) and are taken to a seat. You are given gloves to wear while handling the hog, and in a little tub your hedgehog is brought to you!! ★⌒(●ゝω・)b

How to correctly handle the hog!~
What is there to do there?
As well as spending quality time with your hog, there are some really cute other hogs! They can be found eating, sleeping and exercising (they do this a lot! ᕙ( * •̀ ᗜ •́ * )ᕗ) You can also find lots of cute little props and stuffed toy hedgies around the table, which is cute for pictures~

Someone having a little sleep~

Is it ethical?
As an avid animal lover & veggie, I can guarantee these hedgies are treated really well! The order of Hogs taken out is planned so they have loads of time to sleep, relax, exercise and eat! The staff make sure to tell you what to do & all the cages were spotless! ^^ Plus no flash photography was allowed, and the lights were dimmed for the hedgies sleeping~ I was so impressed!

The little nose!!

My thoughts
Although my favourite animal is a rabbit, going to this café made me really love hedgehogs; they're just so sweet!
As for why these cafes actually exist, I guess its because a lot of apartments in Japan don't allow pets, plus a lot of these animals are high maintenance, meaning it's hard to actually meet these cute creatures. I saw a few mothers bringing their kids to see hedgehogs irl for the first time! so it also acts as an educational place (≧v≦●)

Interested in visiting the same café?~ Here's their website!:

As always, thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for more Japan travel adventures (Kyoto, Tokyo, Hakone and more!)

My day at Sanrio Puroland ♡

♡Hello everyone! ♪♡
It’s been a while since I wrote something, since my trip to japan has taken up so much time! Σ੧(❛□❛✿) But now that I’m back, I’ll be documenting some of my favourite days from my trip including this one, my trip to Sanrio Puroland!

The rainbow shaped entrance to Puroland!

‘Sanrio Puroland’ is an indoor amusement park featuring Hello Kitty and all her friends, such as My melody, Gudetama and Pom Pom Purin !~ ♪ It has tons of beautiful photo spots, such as the giant castle-like entrance & Lady Kitty’s house, cute rides such as My melo drive ♡  & a boat ride, live shows, meet n greets, photoboots, arcades, a few different dining options AND plenty of gift shops! ♪ (๑>◡<๑)♪

entrance to Puro Village!

~Travelling there~

Getting to Puroland takes a bit of time but it’s totally worth it!~♪ the station you arrive in has a glass ceiling with all the characters as well as cute signs telling you where to go. Around the town are hello kitty banners on the lampposts (so cute! ♡)
and a good amount of convenience stores/shops/arcades nearby. You’ll know when you’re there, believe me! (=゚ω゚)ノ ♪
Part of the station's stained glass with the characters dressed up!

~ A record of the day ~

 the first thing we did was collect a map of the place, and look around a little! We saw a bit of one of the live shows, which was interesting, although very crowded so it was hard to see! (● ˃̶͈̀ロ˂̶͈́)੭⁾⁾
We then bought some ears to wear around the park (mine being my melo and my friend's Purin!♡)

Then we made our way to ‘Lady Kitty’s House’ which had a small queue so we waited for that... ♪  the house she has is so beautiful!! And we even got to meet Hello Kitty herself! lol XD

The first room in her house. the piano was beautiful!

The highlight of her house for me was seeing her picture of herself as Mona Lisa (and many other famous paintings) because it seemed really funny how she had pictures of herself everywhere! ^o^

The space around Lady Kitty's mansion! even the walls are cute...

Next, we made our way to check out the arcade! o(*゚▽゚*)o It was filled with claw machines and cute rides themed around the characters, I tried to win a giant my melody & some key rings but failed miserably... maybe i'm unlucky.. (I'm lying to myself I'm just really bad at these lol) :(;゙゚'ω゚'): We also checked out the shops; there are loads! so be prepared to bring money for them if you're a fan!

The my melody shop is so cute!

There’s also a big tree in the centre of the town place where Gudetama can predict your friendship! We got -100... I mean Gudetama makes mistakes sometimes, right..?! :(;゙゚'ω゚'):

I took my ears off to eat... the fries are even in a cute lil box!

And in terms of food, it gets pretty busy so I recommend getting lunch early! There’s free water as well (a little water machine in the cafeteria) ~ there weren’t many veggie options, so I settled for some fries instead!♪ If you’re vegetarian as well I believe there are pasta options too, but none of the character foods (except for desserts) I believe are veggie.. ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ=3=3=3

A hello kitty motorbike from the arcade!
We went on the lovely My melo drive, which was so cute! I am a HUGE My Melody fan so seeing her life as a story was truly amazing... also the cars are so cute as well! Sadly a lot of the rides had huge queues so I would really recommend getting to the popular ones early (eg boat ride) because otherwise it takes like 3 hours... (● ˃̶͈̀ロ˂̶͈́)੭⁾⁾ *regrets*

Part of the My Melo drive display! too cute.. (T^T)/

~ Would I recommend? ~ 

If you’re a huge Sanrio/kawaii culture fan, this is the PERFECT place for you!
 I honestly felt like I was walking around a dream land because of how adorable the characters and place was~ (ᵔᴥᵔ)♪
The rides aren’t scary or particularly exciting, but more about learning about the characters and seeing cute stuff (for example My Melo drive, telling the story of My Melody’s life!~) which again I feel you do have to be a fan of cute things/the actual story to like!~♪ ٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶

Also all the rides/items/shows are exclusively in Japanese, so if you are going I’d recommend you make sure you have at least a basic understanding of the language; You can definitely still enjoy it otherwise though!♡

Overall, because of the cuteness factor, the adorable sights, and the fun happy atmosphere, i’d really recommend ‘Sanrio Puroland’!~ ♪♡
Some of my souvenirs!
One last thing before I go!♪ above this picture is an example of a couple of souvenirs you can get ^^ the left: ears of your fav character, top: the album I made (polaroid pic of the place, the cute ticket they give you with a random character.. the album itself is from 'loft' btw!) middle: purikara from the nearby (outside of puroland) arcade, right: photo from My Melo drive ^^

♡Thank you for reading!~♡
