Happy New Year! It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to blog and so much has happened since I did! Our little boy arrived into the world just over six weeks ago. I am loving being a Mum. I know it’s mushy, but when I wake up to smiles from my little one, I can’t help but have a good day. Of course, there are challenges that come along with having a new baby in the house, but we get through them. I’m slowly adjusting to weird sleeping patterns and having very little time to myself (sometimes my big achievement for the day is having a shower!) but in the end, our little one is healthy, happy and surrounded by a family that loves him. What more could I ask for?!?
Anyway, the reason for my post is not to get all mushy on you, but to finally get back to sharing some kawaii with you. I was very lucky and thanks to a lot of influence from my hubby, I had a very kawaii Christmas.
He was very sweet and arranged for lots of kawaii gifts from my relatives:
Wasn’t I spoilt? And this doesn’t include the kawaii gifts my hubby gave me himself…but I will save them for another post.
First up are five Disney letter sets from my parents:
I’ve wanted the Winnie the Pooh letter set since it first came out so I was immensely happy to find it amongst my Christmas gifts. Of course, I love them all, but I am particularly fond of the Pooh letter set and the Daisy letter set.
My uncle also gave me five letter sets. These ones were more kawaii:
I’ve been wishing for the White Animal Zoo series for ages. There are actually four in the set (my hubby gave me the fourth one). I love the other two sets too. I can’t help but adore kawaii bears and penguins!
The next collection of letter sets came from my Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law.
I can’t pick a favourite amongst these. They are all so cute. I do seem to have a new attraction towards kawaii birds though and especially love the bird cage set.
My Sister-In-Law steered away from letter sets but gave me the new Sentimental Circus series from San-X. I am sooooo happy! I adore Sentimental Circus and the Red Riding Hood range is probably my new favourite.
She gave me the new memos, mini memos and a notebook. Now I just have to find a special use for the notebook.
Finally, my Mum also found a collection of gel pens for me. She knows how much I love to use them for my penpalling and crafts.
Some of them are glitter, some are metallic and some are neon. I’m definitely going to have some fun with these!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peak at my Christmas gifts. I am very grateful to have family that spoil me so much and who go to the effort of finding gifts I truly love. I can hear my little one calling now, so I must sign off, but I will try to post more pictures soon!
