Pusheen 2017 Spring Box Opening Review

Pusheen box continues to impress with large, big ticket items, and tons of exclusives. Pusheen 2017 Spring Box marks one year of my receiving this quarterly subscription crate, which first debuted in Winter 2015 (I missed out on the first box, boo). Ever since I joined in Spring 2016, I've never once been disappointed by the contents of my box, making it by far, the best subscription box for girls. I received my box in May, which happens to be my birthday, and inside, there's tons of birthday / party related goods - awesome coincidence. I could throw myself a Pusheen party, but don't have anyone to invite except for my cats lol. It came packaged in a cute Bunny / Easter themed Pusheen faced box. It included things like Photo Booth Props (some assembly required): ...

Yume Twins May 2017 Unboxing Video Review

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.9&appId=208826225819650"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); I signed up for Yume Twins in May, 2017. The May box had a cat theme with lots of cute (but ultimately "cheap feeling") plushies. As a cat lover, and kawaii collector, it was too good to pass up. I took a lot of pictures as I unpacked my May 2017 Yume Twins box. Facebook assembled this slide show for me from some of the pics I took. This gives you a good idea of the size, variety, and quality of the items inside the May Yume Twins box.   My 1st Yumetwin...

The Red Turtle Anime Review

I just purchased and watched "The Red Turtle" last night. The silent animated feature length film was done, in part, by Studio Ghibli, famous animators of feature length family favorite anime films such as My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Ponyo, and The Cat's Return, just to name a few. I have to admit, I didn't really do my research on this title (and didn't realize it was a silent film until I began watching it), but every time I saw a preview, I just wanted to see it oh so badly. When I realized I could buy it for only $10 more than the "rental" price ($15 vs $5) I immediately purchased it. For about the first 20 - 40 minutes of the film, I felt disappointed and disinterested; that quickly changed as the plot began to advance, and b...
