Basic Witch

Dress from Tobi*

There’s a time in everyone’s life where they dabbled in a bit of magic. I was just starting out in secondary school (so around 13 years old) when a sparkly blue cover caught the corner of my eye, and upon pulling it out from where it was crammed on the library shelf I discovered that it was a beginner’s guide to white magic (aka Wicca). It didn’t take me long to check it out and for several months after I was obsessed with it when, like the typical teenager I was, I got bored and it was left to gather dust on my bookshelf.

Blippo Surprise Kawaii Bag and Giveaway

Blippo surprise kawaii bag

Isn’t life so much better when you receive cute things? That’s how I felt when ‘Blippo Surprise Kawaii Bag’* turned up on my doorstep, and I just couldn’t wait to show you all what I got. Unlike their Kawaii Box, this bag doesn’t involve any subscribing which is great for people like me who don’t really want regular boxes, but who loves treating themselves to kawaii goodies every now and then. Blippo has also been very lovely and has given me another bag to give away, so please scroll down to the bottom of this post to enter!

In the meantime, let’s have a look at what was in my lucky pack (also known as fukubukuro in Japan)…

Creating Memories with Printiki

You’d think that after two years of moving house that I would have some wall art, but noooope. I just never had the time to and instead just shared photos on Instagram. But I really miss printing out photos like my parents did back in the day, so when Printiki* sent over a message asking if I’d like to print out some photos with them I was like, “HELL YES”. It actually took me longer to pick my photos than it did to process my whole order, and within a few days my package arrived neatly on my doorstep.

Summertime Dreaming

summertime dreaming, kawaii gyaru shop review

I got this Liz Lisa dress from Kawaii Gyaru Shop* late last year as a little ‘welcome’ gift to when summer finally comes around. I waited for what seemed like ages, and the weather slowly began to pick up but it still wasn’t warm enough until finally we hit the end of May and it was time to wear it. It was Sod’s Law that I began to notice things that I would’ve changed in this outfit; like the fact I had a hair bobble on my wrist instead of pearl bracelets, and that this outfit would probably look super cute with a boat hat and with my hair in plaits instead of waves. I think it’s generally the life of a fashion blogger to notice these things, but at least I’ll be more prepared when I wear this again in future!

Caw, Caw, Ravenclaw

I don’t care what anyone else says, they can make as many Harry Potter related films as they want and I’ll be happy. Who cares if it’s a money-making-machine? J.K Rowling is as magical as her books, I adore the world of witches and wizards, so any excuse to be absorbed into it is good for me. Reading Harry Potter is just perfect for winter – I can snuggle up in bed with a cup of hot chocolate and I’m satisfied. It’s a bonus if I can do that in front of a toasty fire, but seeing as I don’t have one… hot chocolate will do.
